Japanese Restaurant Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
This is so authentic and tasty! The flavor of the sesame oil is incredible. I used one large English cucumber and because I did not have chili paste, I used chili garlic sauce instead. My young children loved it as a side and I mixed some of these cucumbers with romaine lettuce and shredded rotisserie chicken. I then used the sauce as a dressing and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. Delicious! I will definitely be making this again.

Quick Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
This was very tasty for being so quick. Changes I made that I believe made a difference: 1. Instead of canned tomatoes, I used 6 Romano tomatoes, 2. I added 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, 1.5 Tbsp sugar, and salt and fresh ground pepper to taste, 3. I added frozen Italian meatballs for the 20 min. simmer. My whole family loved it!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
I give this 4 stars only because I made the changes according to aussiemum1 but LOVED this dish. I followed her ingredients but not exactly. I only used 1 lb. of shrimp but made the recommended amount of marinade for 2 lbs. Instead of tomato sauce, I used a whole can of diced tomatoes, 3 cloves of garlic, 1/2 tsp of dried basil (no fresh on hand), 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce, 1 Tbsp of red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup oil and pulsed all in a mini-processor. I reserved about 3/4 cup of the marinade and heated that on the stove for dipping. My husband and all three of my 3.5 year-olds loved it. The kids ate more than me and my husband. Next time, I'll make the 2 lbs and double the marinade as they loved the sauce for dipping.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
This is fabulous and easy! I realized after I started that I didn't even have enough balsamic vinegar. Here's what I did: 9 lamb chops from Sam's Club, trimmed the fat. Used onion instead of shallot (none on hand). Tripled the rub (chops sat for about 1 hour with this) and the sauce. Only had 1/2 cup of balsamic, urrgghh, so used 1/2 cup of good red wine vinegar. Reduction took about 25 minutes but I still added a little Wondra at the end. Placed chops over crispy Petite Gem lettuce (Artisan lettuce from Sam's Club) and poured on the sauce. My husband and I were in heaven. This may be even better with balsamic but red wine vingar worked in a pinch for us.
