Indian-Style Rice with Cashews, Raisins and Turmeric

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This was a big hit with the family and I will certainly make it again. I only had almonds on hand and used those instead of the cashews. I also added a can of garbanzo beans to make it a main dish. An extra shot of Thai red curry rub was added as well. Really good!

Crunch Bar

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
This is one of my favorite desserts and I lost the recipe I had for it. Luckily, I found this! I really recommend using a smaller pan as opposed to uping the ingredients, simply because its more economical that way and you may already have everything you need on hand. One sleeve of crackers lining the pan and then all the proportions given (I used a few less nuts than recommended) filled the pan perfectly. I also sprayed Pam on my spatula before spreading the chocolate. This is a keeper!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
These are very yummy! However, they are not a very traditional oatmeal cookie in the sense that they should have more oatmeal in them. Next time, as others suggested, I would add more oatmeal. The changes I made were to add raisins and white chocolate chips instead of the butterscotch simply because I didn't have any on hand. I also used real butter. The other thing I noticed was that the ones I baked on a metal sheet pan were flat and crispy on the edges and took 11 min to bake and the ones I did on a stoneware pan, retained more of their mounded look and took 9 minutes to bake. I will probably make them again but with adjustments.

Chewy Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
Just delicious! I didn't change much. As someone else suggested, I added 1/2 tsp. each of vanilla and almond extract. I also switched the quantity of nuts and coconut. I mixed chocolate chips and M & Ms to make the 1 1/2 cup of chocolate as well. I will definately make these again!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
My three year old loved this and my husband thought it was good as well. I didn't care for it as much. I used the regular measurements for the sauce and half the chiken. I used two Tbls of lime juice and this seemed a bit to sour for me. I will probably try this again and try to tweek it.

Beer Batter Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2006
Excellent! I did change a few things. First I scaled the recipe to four servings. Then I increased the 1/2 cup of flour to 2/3 and used 2 Tbls. of fresh dill instead of the 1/4 tsp. used in the scaled version. The fish was dredged in flour before the batter was put on. I let the fish sit in the batter in the fridge for 30-45 minutes. I used catfish but a firmer fish next time would probably be be even better. I used about 1/4 inch of oil in a pan and fried it on medium to medium high heat for about 5 minutes a side. Although we really enjoyed it, I think next time I will add more dill, more beer (decreasing the milk proportionately), and perhaps some onion powder. This was also the first time I did not have the batter slide off of what I was frying. I think the time setting up in the fridge is what made the difference

Curried Ham Popover Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
This was very good and very easy as well. I tripled the amount of curry to 1 1/2 tsp. Next time I will probably up it to 2 tsp and add some to the ham instead of just the batter. I also added mixed veggies and minced onions instead of peppers and green onions and threw in 1/2 tsp of baking powder to the batter. My three year old loved this too. I'm sure I'll make this again and experiment with different fillings and spices.

Light and Spicy Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
We really liked this. I used flounder and a medium salsa. It's not gourmet by any means, but tasty and very easy to do. I will most likely make it again!

Portobello Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
I tried to make this without the skin to save calories, but I don't think it was the same. I found the chicken was flavorful, but not the veggies. It was entirely edible, but unless I make it with the skin, I probably won't make it again.

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
Although this wasn't bad, it wasn't as good as we had hoped. I did use olive oil instead of butter, but I still did not feel it was very flavorful. Someone had mentioned that the breading overpowered the garlic flavor and I found the same was true of my version. The crumbs were also gooey and not crisp in places (These were the crumbs on top). If I make this again, I will stick strictly to the recipe and use fewer crumbs.

Big Cheeseburger Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
We really loved this, but I did change it a bit. I did not use the thousdand island dressing because I just didn't need the calories and fat. Instead, I made it more like a Quarter Pounder with Cheese instead of a Big Mac. I used 28 oz. of diced tomatoes directly on the crust and topped with the beef (mixed with dried onions and a little BBQ sauce), cheese and pickle relish. I will definately make it again!

Cod au Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2006
This was surprisingly very good and fairly easy to make. I changed it around a bit using the same ingredients. I left the fish in fairly big chunks so it wouldn't be mushy. I also made a cheese sauce instead of a white sauce and all cheese topping. I also didn't layer the fish and sauce. It did the layer of fish, a layer of broccoli, and then the cheese sauce sprinkled with paprika. I know it probably then really changes the idea of the original dish, but it was still delicious!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
We really enjoyed this. Gourmet its not, but simple hearty fare. It's also a snap to make. Instead of taco seasoning which I find very salty, I sprinkled on chilli powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper. I served it with brown rice. We'll definately have it again!

Basil Pesto Sunshine Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
I really love all these ingredients on their own, but togther, they were just too overpowering for me. The cheese and the pestos were just too much. If I ever make this again I would use mozzerella instead of a stronger cheese. That said, it was still entirely edible, I'm just not likely to make it again.

Easy Masoor Daal

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
We really enjoyed this recipe and will have it again! It was a bit salty so next time I would cut back on that. I also used less cayenne and chrystalized ginger instead of the raw. My one problem was that I don't think it would fill four people. It made barely three filling servings for us and I served it with naan to make up the difference. Delicious though. Even my three year old liked it and it was a bit spicy.

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This was delicious, though I used canned chicken instead of tuna. I doubled the recipe (but not the amount of mayo), substituted dried onion for the shallot and pecans for the walnuts, and ommited the celery. I served it on Kaiser rolls instead of crossaints. Next time, I'd probably put in more curry. This is so easy to make and you can really put in whatever nuts and fruit/veggies you want and it is still great. The curry and mustard are what make it so flavorful. The way we ate it, I can't believe the original recipe made four servings!

Southwest Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
This was tasty and my whole family enjoyed it but my husband really loved it. I changed it by using sour cream instead of mayo and ommiting the chilli as it would have been too hot for me. I have to say that I would have given it three stars as it was just OK for me. I thought the chicken was overpowered by the salsa mix. But my husband ate it cold and loved it. I too, felt room temp or cold was much better than hot. I would probably add some veggies next time.

Wasabi Mayo Salmon

Barbie Doll Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
This cake was a lot of fun! I, too, used the Pampered Chef Bowl, but it was still too short for the doll. I ended up removing the doll's legs and just using the torso. I baked it for 70 minutes. I think that increasing the amount of batter to a total of 1 and 1/2 a pkg of cake mix might make the cake taller, but I don't know how baking times would be. However, it might be easier than adding an 8 inch round layer to the bottom. Also 3/4 of one can of frosting was plenty.

Frosted Orange Date Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
Excellent flavor and fairly easy to prepare. I have never made or eaten date bars before so I can't say how the date flavor comes through, but I thought they were very tasty as did my whole family. I ommited the orange zest in both the bars and frosting as I just don't care for zest. I increased the amount of OJ in the batter by a couple of tablespoons instead. The batter is very much the consistancy of a thick pancake batter. The recipe didn't state when to add the pecans so I mixed them in last. I put it in a glass pan instead of the jelly roll pan because I think it would have spilled over. The recipe for the frosting makes way too much. Half to 2/3 of the recipe would have been enough. I also added two tablespoons of milk to make it creamy before adding the OJ. These were very good and I will definately make them again.
