African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
yum! Threw in some shredded cooked turkey meat and chopped peanuts on top (used creamy PB 'cause that's what we have) also used chicken broth in place of vegetable broth. I also didn't put rice in it because we'd already had our allotment of the grain group for the day, and it was still plenty filling!

Swiss-Barley Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
It's too bad all recipes makes you rate the recipe in order to review it now, because I didn't really follow the directions- but I must say; the idea of this soup inspired me! First of all, hubby and I are on a diet and although the sound of an entire stick of butter sounds good, I just couldn't do it. So I used two Tbsp butter and 2 Tbsp "smart balance" margarine. (that's 4 T total, instead of 8!) Then after sauteing the veggies I didn't remove them, I just sprinkled 1 T flour in and stirred for about a minute until the flour was absorbed into the fat and a little golden in color. Then, I didn't notice that it was supposed to be quick cooking barley until after I started making it, so I added another two cups liquid for the barely to absorb as it cooked. I replaced the water with 1/2 C white wine, 1 1/2 C beef broth, and 2 C chicken broth. Let the barley cook with the lid on for about 40 minutes and it was perfectly tender. I then added three cups NONFAT milk plus gruyere cheese, (and the parsley and worchestershire) because I had it in the fridge already and it's pretty similar to swiss. Although, I'm sure it's to die for with swiss. the turn out: delightful! Honestly, this is my first time cooking barley. And I actually liked it. Who knew? Thanks for the inspiration!

Eggnog Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
This was all right. I LOVE creme brulee, so I guess I shouldn't stray :o) I also like eggnog, and wanted a "festive" dessert for my Christmas Eve dinner. The directions were good, I had no trouble, it set up nicely, the consistancy was good- I don't know, it just was kind of..... not creme brulee. Maybe it was TOO eggnog-y or something. If you ADORE eggnog, this may perfect for you! If I were to make it again I think I'd add some southern comfort or brandy or something, and replace some of the eggnog with cream.

Baked Flan

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
My first attempt at flan, and I think it turned out pretty well! Very yummy, we had left overs and gobbled them up over the next couple days.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
yum yum yum yum yum! It took me a long time to try this recipe but I'm glad I finally did. I used whole wheat tortillas, sauteed the spices a bit, didn't mash the beans incredibly- but I think it was pretty true to the recipe :) Topped with sour cream, cilantro, and scallions. Will be making again!

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
Pretty yummy for being eggless- I'm pregnant so don't want to risk raw eggs :) It can't compare to homemade ice cream WITH eggs, but since I can't have that, it was a good substitute.

Authentic Thai Cashew Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
First off, I think people shouldn't rate recipies that they change the heck out of. Almost every rave review did not follow the recipe- irritating. Seccond, chili paste is -very- concentrated. You will not get close to the same flavor using chili sauce or anything else. A good thai chili paste is worth having in your refrigerator if you enjoy spicy asain cuisine because it is made of authentic ingredients like palm sugar and tamarind and lemon grass- things that we can't find easily most places here in the US. Now for the recipe- it didn't do anything for me or my husband. I did add lime juice after cooking, and that helped. Wasn't bad, wasn't amazing. It just was.

Chocolate-Candy Cane Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
These cookies were fine, but not memorable. They were a bit spongy for my liking, but looked cute. Hubby said no need to keep this recipe around.

Bourbon Pecan Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
This is so good. Doesn't taste "pecan-y" for those of us who aren't fond of them. Make my own clarified butter by melting and cooling.

Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
I was wary of the ammount of lemmon juice, but being in a rush to put a hot breakfast on the table for my over-worked husband, i decided not to fuss with it. I wish I had. We won't be making this again.

Needs a few moderations for personal preference, but a nice change to butter and brown sugar. :)

Amy's Garlic Egg Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
This was indeed very moist, but it was also bland. I love garlic, but it just doesn't stand out on it's own for me and my husband. Wont make again.

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
Quite tasty! Due to some reviewers complaining of soggy tortillas, i toasted mine first in a 450 oven for about 3 minutes each side, till crispy. (give them a quick spray of cooking oil) They turned out nice and noodle-like in the end. I also added thin sliced onion and minced garlic to the chicken while it cooked for added zing. Will make again! :)

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
My husband and I enjoyed this for breakfast every day this week! It's a cross between a cobbler and a super-moist coffee cake, in my opinion. Reviewers who found this dish chewy and cornbread-like may have over-mixed, or used all-purpose flour without adding rising agents. Mine turned out delishously moist, berries ended up on the bottom, top was golden brown. My only problem with the recipe is the baking time... my oven is typically slow but this was slightly over done by 45 minutes. So watch closely!

Tomato and Basil Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2005
I think i used way more cheese than i was supposed to (i used eminthaler swiss and mozzerella) but it was very delicious! I also used fresh whole basil leaves instead of dried, which i think is a must. I made my own pie crust rather than use frozen, which probably doens't make a difference i'd just rather make than buy! Thanks for the recipe!
