Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
My cookies rolled easily into balls, looked just like the picture. I didn't like the texture at all. They were neither chewy nor crunchy, more crumbly. The only way I can think to describe it is like a super stale, heavy, grainy biscuit. The flavor was pretty good, but I think I will stick with the flourless pb cookie recipes from now on.

Currant Cardamom Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Truly a special recipe. I didn't change a thing! The spice combination is delicious, and the currants are wonderfully festive. (Raisins would be fine, in a pinch, but currants give more of a kick.) I also made a whiskey sauce to top the pudding when serving. (1/2 c butter, 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c heavy cream, 1/4 c whiskey: heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Done. Super easy and great on bread puddings.) I made this pudding for Christmas dinner and could not have chosen a more perfect dessert. Everyone loved it. I will be making currant and cardamom bread pudding for years to come... THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING THIS RECIPE :)

Beef on Weck

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
We dip the bottom side of the top roll in au jus and just serve with horseradish. This recipe was just what I needed. My Buffalonian boyfriend was overjoyed :) Thank you.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
Moist and delicious! I liked the suggestion, so i also used 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup apple sauce. Instead of banana, I cooked down 3 peaches with a little water and sugar and used a cup of that instead of the banana,adding a dash of nutmeg. No choc chips. Peach was what i had for today. I will be using this as a base recipe for all my muffins! It's that good.

Moroccan Chicken and Whole Grain Couscous

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
my honey and i devoured this stuff. it's even better the second day. i bought half of a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store, used the meat for my chicken, and boiled the bones and fatty bits to make the chicken broth (easy and economical!). i only made about 24 oz. of broth, and that was plenty. more spices wouldn't hurt, but the flavor is great. it's necessary to cut the amount of broth in half tho, and you could even reduce that a bit more. also, i left out the beans and added a clove of garlic. we threw in some black currants after cooking the first night. it seemed more exotic that way. the second night, i added a little garlic salt and no fruit. it's yummy that way too. i like mine with a little frank's hot sauce! and finally, i didn't crush the cloves and don't see any reason to do so. thanks for the marvelous recipe!!!

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2007
Truly wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly but pulled the cake out about 5 min early. Cake looks dark early on but doesn't taste burned. I used a butter recipe cake mix this time, and I'm thinking french vanilla might be even better. The butter recipe is perfect, though, for those who like their cake a little less sweet and more like banana bread. This will definitely be a staple cake for me. It's so easy, and everyone loved it.

Country Pineapple Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
WOW! this stuff is fabulous. comes out like a pineapple bread pudding. i used a little less sugar (maybe 1 2/3 cup, and it was still plenty sweet. this would be so great with ham or could make a perfect dessert or potluck. Mmm!

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: May 15, 2007
Delicious recipe! I had not successfully made roux before. I'd always been paranoid about burning it, but I went ahead and cooked on medium, stirring constantly w/ spatula, for 20 minutes, and it browned up perfectly! I think burning must be such a problem, because people walk off and leave it cooking. Used 1 can stewed tomatoes w/ onions & peppers. Also, I used only crawfish and boiled up the shells for fish stock. The crawfish had already been seasoned, so I just threw a little of Tony Chachere's creole seasoning in at the last. PERFECT!

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
Absolutely perfect! This soup is so hearty and tasty and beautiful in the bowl, the best remedy for chilly nights. I used Smoking Loon Merlot for the wine and thought it worked really well. Also, i used kidney beans instead of pinto. My only regret was that there wasn't more yummy soup. This recipe will feed 2, maybe 3, people. will definitely double it next time for lots of leftovers! fyi, it does take a little while to put all of the ingredients together, but my friend and i passed the time drinking the red wine and munching on extra bacon. it made such a fabulous evening that we decided to make 'soup night' a fall tradition. THANKS SO MUCH for this recipe!

Curried Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2006
WOW!! i was afraid this recipe would be too salty, but it's perfect! so crisp on top and savory. i threw in a cup or two of frozen peas. i think you could really add any veggies you like, and this would still be fantastic. would make an impressive potluck or dinner party dish for sure. may not want to make it at home alone tho. it's really tough to stop eating this stuff!
