Baked Beans, Texas Ranger

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
my husband loved this and he is a Texan. i thought it was very good. I would rate it five if any of the heat in the dish was at the tip of the tongue rather than all at the end of the bite. I did add a pinch of the reccommended cayenne pepper and also 5 dashes of tobasco. Would more of these help accomplish an initial spiciness? I also wonder if it could achieve the tangy flavor without quite so many calories.

Artichoke and Chickpea Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
Im not giving stars since I used butter beans instead of chickpeas. I would give it a 4 based on how I made it which was without oil, and with dried sage, and canned diced tomatoes. Mine turned out like a thick stew because by the time the carrots soften most of the liquid has evaporated. All in all it was a hearty vegetarian dish, but was a little boring.

Salmon with Pineapple Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
I seasoned sockeye salmon with chiang mai fish and fowl from central market. I pan seared it (cast iron skillet) in olive oil 2 min. on first side, 1 min on 2nd side and stuck in 425 oven for 8 minutes. I combined in a bowl the salsa ingredients less lime juice and oil also subbing mirin for sugar, and used undrained canned tomato, undrained pineapple, and added a little of the chicken broth. After the salmon came out threw the salsa ingredients in a blotted dry pan and had a sauce in seconds. (It will sizzle because the pan is so hot.) Served over jasmine rice. This tasted like a restaurant quality dish.

Delicious Ahi Fish Burgers with Chives

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
This recipe would have been impossible without coating in flour, because the mixture was really quite wet even when I used just one egg. I added some soy sauce, but still these weren't very flavorful. I would recommned LOTS of garlic and LOTS of pepper. I served this over rice with Whole Foods 360 Pan Asian Marinade for more flavor. My husband who is typically a meat eater, loved this meal.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
I cooked this without mushrooms, and really loved it. I needed to add a small can of tomato sauce 8oz, when I pulled it out of the oven, as the vegetables weren't completely tender, and didn't mesh into what I consider ratatouille. So it simmered with the sauce about 15 minutes longer on the stove with lid on. It was awesome.

French Onion Soup V

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2006
Hands down, the very best french onion soup I have ever had. So delicious! I used havarti for some of the bowls, and parmesan on others. I definitely recommend havarti (sliced) rather than grated parmesan-it changed the flavor of the soup. I did not try mozzarella, but imagine it would be much the same result as the havarti.

Turkey Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2006
Was not flavorful enough for my american tastes, but I will do it again adding more salt, pepper, lemon, brown sugar, and worcestire, for inside of the rolls as well as the sauce on top. I would also not use tomato paste but only sauce as one reader did, as there didn't seem to be enough spoonable sauce.

Veal Forestiere

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
This turned out decently. I used veal for scallopini. It was tougher than I have had in restaurants, so maybe I didn't reduce the cooking time adequately? Loved the way the sauce turned out, definitely would reccommend not using artichokes. They just seemed weird with the delicate marsala, veal, and mushroom flavors. I may use spinach in its place next time.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
My husband really loved these thus the 4, I would have given them a 3. They just weren't crisp enough for me on the outside, and even with all of the spices they seemed bland. If I were to do it again, I would probably not pre-heat the oven, use a little more oil, and add some more kosher salt, black pepper, and maybe even some rosemary.

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This was pretty good, maybe tasted a little healthy compared to what you might eat at a restaurant. I used parmesan cheese and added a couple of tablespoons of extra mixed cheese shreds. I was grateful for a healthful recipe that contained spinach, and that my husband (who will not eat spinach) enjoyed.

Chicken Rice Mexicana

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This is delicious! I used spanish rice (zatarran's) instead of white rice. 2 chicken breasts from frozen was enough meat.

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
This sauce was very good. I made this two days in a row.The first batch turned out excellent, I added peanuts. 2nd time, made only with broccoli which started to burn, too little oil? Unfortunately I may have added too much more because this batch tasted oily.

Very tasty, Since I anticipated leftovers, I added the chow mein noodles to each portion to prevent sogginess.

Sauteed Portobellos and Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
Tastiest spinach ever. Not too overwhelming or rich. Would like to try it next time with less butter for a lower fat version.

Baking Powder Biscuits I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2003
The recipe as written requires too much baking powder. You can taste the baking powder in the final product, it is repulsive. Also these biscuits are really dry. They might be useful to sop up something like stew, but definitely are not the biscuits you want to cook for breakfast. I give this recipe a two because it provides a basic framework for biscuits with few ingredients, and which you can adjust by preferences.
