Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Delicious! I was skeptical of making this chili because of the few ingredients - it sounded too easy to be tasty. But I was pleasantly surprised. Here are some modifications I made: Used ground chicken instead of beef, used fresh chopped garlic and sprinkling of salt instead of garlic salt, added 1 t.coriander, 1/8 t. chili powder, 1/2 t. cumin and 1/4 t. red pepper flakes, added 1/4 chopped green pepper, used entire envelope of chili seasoning. I am so excited to have found this recipe and plan to make it on chilly winter nights in the future.

Caramel Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
The pie turned out wonderfully! Here are the modifications I made: I squeezed half a lime over the peeled apples to keep them from browning. As suggested by another member, I used caramel dip instead of caramel topping and spread it on the bottom of the pie crust. I used 2/3 cup sugar instead of ¾ cup. I used ¾ t. all-spice instead of cinnamon. I used walnuts instead of pecans. I added ½ t. cardamom powder. About half way through baking, I put foil over the top because it was rapidly browning. Fifteen minutes before it was done, I removed foil and just placed it on the crust. A delicious pie that I'll definitely make again!!

Smoked Salmon Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Delicious! I made this recipe at my sushi party and it was a definite favorite. I bought my smoked salmon at Trader Joe's and it was very tasty. I will definitely make this again.

Cucumber and Avocado Sushi

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
A great recipe! I added crab sticks to a few, and also smoked salmon. The smoked salmon was a delicious addition! Definitely need some dipping sauce such as soy sauce or wasabi to add flavor if just using cucumber and avocado.

Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
Wow -- This was delicious and I will definitely make it again. I increased the serving size to 12 and although it called for 3 apples, I just included 2. I love the combination of textures. I added some grill seasoning for added flavor. Next time I may add in some toasted sesame seeds or even cilantro. Highly recommended -- I received lots of compliments and recipe requests when I served this at my party.

Vegetarian Bean Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
Wonderful recipe. I made a few modifications: After heating oil in pan, I added 1/3 teaspoon black mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds, 5 curry leaves. Saute 30 seconds. Then add onions, and continue recipe. I deleted powdered cumin from the recipe and added 1 teaspoon of all spice instead. I added some water at the end and bumped heat up to medium to fully cook lentils.

Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
Easy and fun to make. I used the smaller 6" tortillas. I placed the tortilla in my pan, added toppings to one side, and folded the tortilla in half. This is much easier than the traditional method and less messy. This recipe is not spicy at all, so if you like some heat, add hot peppers or dip into spicy salsa. I'll definitely make these again!

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2005
I added some dijon mustard, curry powder, and garlic salt. Simple, and great for a party side-dish.

Honey Curried Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
My family loved this. A wonderful dinner with a great variety of ingredients. I didn't think I would like the combination of mushrooms with apples, but it was actually quite delicious. The recipe is a bit time consuming but was worth it. The honey mustard sauce is divine. A tasty combination of sweet and spicy. I just love it!

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2002
A beautiful, colorful presentation for gift-giving. Easy to make and you don't have to "force" the ingredients to fit into the jar. The cookies that I baked turned out perfectly and I'm not usually very good at baking. A great recipe!

Beets with Onion and Cumin

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
Absolutely delicious. I will definitely add this to my list of favorite recipes. My boyfriend and I loved it! We served it with basmati rice which soaked up the flavorful sauce. Next time I will cut the beets into smaller, bite sized pieces.

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
Excellent. Quick, easy and flavorful. (I skipped the tofu.) My boyfriend from India made the following modifications for more authenticity: After heating oil in pan, add 1/2 t. cumin seeds. Heat for 30 seconds, stirring. Then add 6 curry leaves and 2 t. ginger-garlic paste. Stir for 30 seconds. Then add onion, 1 t. garam masala, 1 t. chili powder and 1 T. curry powder. (no curry paste required) I followed the recipe similary except that I added about 1/2 cup water after putting in the chick peas to create a thinner consistancy. We both loved it served with basmati rice. Next time I may add some chopped tomato.

Mango Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2005
An absolute hit -- great mix of fruity and crunchy. I used one tablespoon of orange champagne vinegar and one tablespoon of sugar water (2 t. sugar melted in 1 T. water). I served it at a party and everyone loved it. Love the combination of sweet mango with sour apple.

Egg and Pesto Sushi

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Amazing! I had a sushi party and I decided to print out some sushi recipes for my guests to try. This one was an absolute HIT. I wasn't sure how the combination of pesto and egg would taste, but it is a delicious combination in sushi, adding an Italian twist! I also added avocado slivers. I will certainly make this in the future! Outstanding!

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2004
Fabulous hit! Makes a LARGE batch. I split it and took it to 2 parties. Tastes just as wonderful heated up. I thought it looked like it needed more spinach, but it tasted perfect as is. Easy and fast to prepare since it's all stove-top.

No Bakes

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2005
These were very sticky even though I kept them refrigerated. They did not easily come off of the waxed paper. I couldn't layer them on a serving tray or they would end up in a goopy mess. I kept them on the waxed paper and stacked in layers for storage. I wouldn't suggest making these for guests, but for family at home it's a yummy treat.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
There was no way possible I could have made this recipe and fit it all in one pan! I had to use two small casserole dishes. I added some parmasan cheese to the top before baking. If I make this again, I'll add chopped zucchini and sour cream. I'd also like to try a version of it using spinach. After being in the refrigerator for a day, the flavors meshed and this tasted much better. Fresh out of the oven, I didn't think it had enough flavor.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
This chili was ok. Not my favorite recipe. I added 1 cup of chicken broth because otherwise it would have been way too thick. I also added 1 bay leaf, 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin powder, and one dried red chili to add more flavor.

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
I really really did not like the mayo in this. I would use a different recipe next time I make bruschetta.
