Couscous Primavera

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
Tip: Mushroom stock is SOOO much tastier than Vegetable stock. This is a wonderful recipe you can adjust to your taste. I usually use whatever herbs or veggies I have around at the time. I will often trade the mint, for basil, cilantro or parsley, depending on what is fresh in my garden. I will also use any vegis in my refrigerator that are leftover from previous meals..Carrots, zucchini, green beans etc. You can't add to many vegetables if they are diced small. I almost prefer to have a half vegis to half pearl couscous in the end. Is a wonderful accompaniment to shrimp, fish, chicken or vegetarian alternative meats.

Silky Sweet Potato Puree

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
I don't think sweet potatoes need all the buttermilk And whole milk And butter. I've actually used a recipe off this website that calls for light coconut milk instead. Thought it had a better flavor in the end. Wouldn't make this recipe again

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
I NEVER use water in a grain recipe. I use chicken stock or mushroom stock as a vegetarian alternative. I also prefer zucchini to the cucumber. You can't add to many vegetables to a dish like this, so I usually add any extra vegetables I have lying around from previous meals. You can soften the vegis by boiling them in the broth for a few minutes before cooking the quinoa

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
Perfect as written. I can never make enough of these to satisfy everyone. The spice is subtle and kids love these shrimp as much as adults! Personally I love strong flavors so I added additional basil, garlic and Cayenne (I've also used crushed red pepper flakes which have worked well with this recipe). Dont forget to soak the bamboo skewers before grilling :)

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
So good! I doubled the dry rub for my tenderloin. I've made this twice now and liked the glaze better with brown sugar as some other reviewers recommended. Also, if cooking a tenderloin, you only need to cook for around 30 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
So good! I added some almond extract, baked in 2 loaf pans since I didn't have a bunt pan and topped with a lemon glaze. Delish!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
Excellent with these changes. For the sauce, use 1 tbsp of lemon juice and only 1 tbsp of oil per batch of sauce. Make 1 batch of sauce for every 2 pork chops. Marinate for at least an hour and reserve some sauce for basting. I only had to cook my 1 inch pork chops for 30 minutes covered, then 5 minutes in the broiler. They could have possibly even cooked slightly less and finished cooking while resting. Thanks for the recipe! Will definitely use again!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
4 stars with the recipe as is....5 stars with these simple changes. I sear off each side of the roast in canola oil on the stove before putting it in the crockpot. Just 3 or 4 minutes on each side. I've found this helps the roast stay juicy and moist. I also leave the roast in with the bbq sauce for at least 30 minutes before serving, to give the flavors a chance to blend together. Top with a simple slaw and this makes a mean sandwich!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
Great recipe! I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese, cut the sugar in the cheesecake down to 1 1/14 cup, and cut the topping butter and sugar down to 1/3 cup each. This dessert is still plenty sweet with less sugar

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
These were definitely good as written but excellent and 5 star worthy with a few tweaks. I added a couple tablespoons of Worcestershire to the meatball mixture for some zing, and would recommend decreasing the cooking time. By 20 minutes my meatballs were fairly overcooked. I would also recommend melting the sauce mixture in the microwave prior to pouring on top of the meatballs to help distribute the flavors more evenly

Sausage Flowers

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Good recipe and easy to change for your personal tastes. Main problem is that stars get soggy and a little weird underneath. To resolve this issue, toast the wrappers in the muffin tin for 5 minutes before filling is added to help the bottom of each star crisp up. Once you've added filling cook for additional 8-12 minutes...or until filling is warm, corners of stars are crispy and cheese is melted.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
Awesome and light! I toasted my rice in a little olive oil, used chicken stock instead of water and cut the butter in half.

Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Delicious! This recipe is delicious as written but I will make the following changes next time to tone down the richness. Since short ribs and the sauce they create from cooking is already so fattening and rich I will use less butter and half the amount of brown sugar. I also drained the sauce out of the crock pot an hour before ribs were done, removed the top layer of fat on top with a ladle, then returned sauce to crock pot. I served w/ mashed potatoes, garlic green beans and a dry red wine. YUM!
