Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
These are not the lunch lady's Brussel Sprouts from school! Who knew they could be so tastey? For a nice twist I borrowed from an area restaurant, try adding a few toasted walnut pieces, a little garlic, a touch of orange zest, and some parsely. Yum!

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
My family loves this dip. I also like to use it in place of sour cream on nearly any Mexican food. The perfect recipe for us is to up the cumin by half, add 1/4 tsp cayanne pepper, and 1 seeded jalapeno. We like it with a little more umph! I generally like to let it set for a couple hours in the fridge to let the flavors meld. Everytime I've made this for guests, they always want the recipe!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I LOVE Chicken Tikka Masala. This is a very good recipe, but is even better if you add some Cardamon. Throw in 2 teaspoons with other spices in the sauce and you won't regret it! The Cardoman adds a nice complexity to the flavor so its not just dominated by the Cumin. Also, don't shortcut the reduction time. Let the sauce simmer down for at least 20 minutes.

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Good, but next time I think I'll try cutting back the sugar and adding some honey. I was missing a bit of that honey flavor.

Chicken Papadoris

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2005
This a great recipe, but it is was too bland for me. If you are looking for a tasty recipe to experience the wonderful tastes of curry for the first time, this is a perfect one to get started on. If you already love curry dishes, then you'll want to kick this one up several notches. Some previous reviews mentioned doubling the spices--I will go 3 or maybe 4 times the curry next time. This dish has great flavor, just not enough of it.

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2004
This is an awesome potato soup. I've made it for several different guests and everyone always wants the recipe. After making this many times, I've started using just a bit more garlic and a little red pepper for some kick. One helpful tip: Don't overcook your bacon--I did this once and it just didn't seem as good. When it's just starting to crisp, you're ready to go. Comfort food at it's best!

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2003
This is a wonderfully easy recipe that just needed a few tweaks. Some nice additions to the glaze are onions, mushrooms, and a bit of garlic. I not only cut the brown sugar in half (per recommendation), I also added extra wine since the mushrooms will soak up a fair amount of the liquid. Add the onions and garlic with the wine and sugar. Add the mushrooms the last 5 - 10 minutes. Went great with mashed potatoes and the Grean Bean and Mushroom Medely, also from this site. Good luck!

French Spring Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2003
I give this 4 stars only because 5 stars is the ultimate. I do really like this soup though. I was unable to resist adding a clove of garlic when sauteing the vegetables and also threw in some sliced mushrooms. Like the other reviewer, I used chicken stock for 1/2 the liquid. Replacing the heavy cream with half-and-half didn't hurt the flavor at all. (Have to cut a few calories where you can.) I had never cooked with Leeks before and was a bit concerned about having an over-powering oniony flavor. Thats not a problem with this recipe. After simmering for 30 minutes, the many flavors combine and mellow nicely. I'll make this again.
