Beef Pho

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
I loved this Pho recipe! It turned out wonderfully, it actually tasted like pho! I have made pho before (even using the predone cube sachets and beef broth to try to spice it up) and it has turned out miserable and tasteless. But this recipe tasted almost identical to my fave pho restraunt (I am proud of myself!). I ommitted the daikon since I didn't have it on hand and I didn't use the oxtail. I used some large meaty bones from the butcher at the local asian market and they were perfect for a half sized recipe. I followed everything else to a "T" and it was well worth the 6 1/2 hours it took the broth to cook and it smelled wonderful (after I added the spices). Even my picky roommate loved it! (and he hates my cooking most of the time! :P)

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
QUICK, SIMPLE, DELICIOUS! I'd probably cut back on the sugar in the dressing a bit if you have sweeter strawberries as it's almost candy-like in quality but it's darn delicious regardless.

No Roll Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
This pie crust comes out perfect EVERY TIME! My mom's even rolled it and it came out great. So simple and consistent results earn this top marks from me. It's also super quick, I turned out two crusts for a pot pie tonight in about 5 minutes. The only thing I do differently is to mix it up in a separate bowl first.

Vintage Lemonade

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Lovely lemonade. The lemon oil adds extra depth and gives this lemonade a handsome yellow shade without any food coloring. My family went crazy for this when I made it. I absolutely love this recipe. Thanks to reviewers for the tip on not messing with the zest and sugar, they are so RIGHT! Totally recommend this recipe to friends whenever I get the chance! Thanks so much for sharing!!

Italian Summer Squash Polenta Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
Delicious dish made with fresh from the garden summer squash! My mom raved about it and even my dad (who turns his nose up at everything) ate it and proclaimed it was good. Super simple and quick to throw together I will definitely be making this again.

All Pumpkins' Night Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Simple and delicious stew recipe. At first I wasn't sure about all the caraway but it takes on a mellower flavor after simmering all day. I cooked my stew in the crockpot. I browned the beef and cooked the onions as per the recipe and dumped it into the crock. I ommited 2 cups of the broth and cooked it on high the first two hours then kicked it to low and let it go all day and it came out fabulous. Lovely autumn dinner!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
Simple and absolutely delicious. I paired this with my favorite quick, no roll pie crust and had a fabulous lunch in less than an hour. The only change I made was to throw a little salt and a couple bay leaves in with the boiling chicken for more a more flavorful broth.

Jewish Eggplant Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
SUPER SIMPLE, I like super simple. I halved this recipe so it'd fit in my toaster oven. It turned out delicious, like eggplant parm with healthy sauteed goodies mixed in. I'll definitely be making this again in the future. I didn't change a thing and don't think it really needs tweaking, it's delicious as is!

Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Absolutely positively delicious! I didn't think pot pie could taste so delicious. I used the little Trader Joe's concentrated broth packets for the broth. I also added couple handfuls of dried mixed mushrooms chopped into small pieces (instead of fresh) and used the soaking water for the water component of the broth. I also used my favorite pie crust, the No Roll Pie Crust II recipe from this site as my crusts, I whipped two up in under 5 minutes and didn't have to roll anything. Other than all that chopping this is a super simple recipe. Absolutely rich and flavorful and every bit as savory as a meat dish and super filling. I love it and will definitely be making it again soon.

Brigadeiro

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
Delicious simple brigadero. I am in love it tastes just like it did in Brazil! I whipped up a batch in the microwave in about 5 minutes then cooled it in the fridge for a few hours and it turned out fantastic.

Pork Rib Stew with Sage Cornmeal Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
This was really delicious. I made this in the crockpot. I followed all the directions as stated except I cut the amount of water in half. I also took the suggestion of the other reviewers and added just enough water to make a dough and it worked like a charm. Thank you so much for sharing your great recipe.

Italian Wheat Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
Beautiful rolls, these were light and airy, had an amazing flavor and disappeared in two days! I love the single rise of this recipe so they're actually fairly quick to make! I used them as dinner rolls and also as mini vegetarian/dessert calzone wrappers as well. So good!

German Brotchen Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I'm fairly new to bread making. These rolls came out AWESOME! I followed the instructions and they came out shiny with a nice crusty exterior and light fluffy interior. I will definitely make these again, it's totally worth the effort.

Scalloped Corn and Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
This was a big hit at the dinner table. Quick and easy to throw together. I was looking for something to use up some corn and broccoli. The only change I made was using fresh broccoli instead of frozen. It was a little sweet for my taste with the creamed corn (could have just been the brand of corn *shrugs*).

Tonkatsu - Asian-Style Pork Chop

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Solid simple tonkatsu recipe. I probably would have added a little more salt (could just have been the sea salt I was using was a bit on the light side).
