I made the recipe to serve 5. Used 1 reg can of coconut milk and one light. Perfect. Did not mince lemongrass and crushed the ginger. Added a little more shrimp (1 lb) and mushrooms (white button).Best Thai soup I've ever made. Served with jasmine rice.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
Great marinade, probably my new favorite. Omitted salt and used fresh ginger (a generous amount)and substituted grapeseed oil for peanut oil. I didn't have any green onions, but it really didn't seem to need those anyway.

Escarole Soup with Venison Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Very good! I happened to have venison sausage so I made it with that. If I was using Italian pork sausage I probably would have omitted the olive oil. Followed directions pretty much to a tee, except added garlic to the sausage as well as some dried red pepper flakes, black pepper, oregano, and parsley. Added a little extra broth because I threw in pasta near the end. Definitely follow Melanie's instructions about making small meatballs out of the sausage.

Great recipe. Everyone loved it. I added fresh cilantro and a little lime juice and just mashed it with a fork.

Mb's Grilled Wild Alaskan Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Great marinade. I only marinated for 2 hours and still had great taste. Used fresh ginger, 3 cloves of garlic and olive oil instead of peanut oil. Omitted salt, plenty in soy sauce anyway.

Spicy Fish Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
This is delicious! Followed the recipe pretty closely, but I doubled the amount of garlic. Didn't have a bell pepper but I think it's fine without it. My only problem was with the yogurt, I only had Greek yogurt so I used that and it did curdle, but I think it was my fault as I put it in the pot too fast. Next time I'll try to be more patient. I wouldn't leave it out though, I think the yogurt gives the soup its richness.

Mb's Homemade Tomato Sauce II

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
Great base recipe! I used canned whole roma tomatoes and crushed them with my hands. Make sure you use a good brand of tomatos, preferably imported from Italy--it makes a difference. I only used 1 cup of water. As many others did, I used olive oil, added oregano, red pepper flakes, fresh parsley and a whole carrot(removed at end).

Thai Spiced Barbecue Shrimp

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
I made this with Pataks curry paste (Indian), and large Gulf shrimp. Very tasty. I marinated for barely 30 minutes as I think the shrimp starts cooking after that and would be tough. Grilled quickly on super hot grill. Shrimp was very tender. Next time I'll add more curry as I like it really spicy and serve with a cooling dipping sauce.

Venison Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Not a big meatloaf fan, but this was yummy. Pretty much followed directions , but did add a splash of Worcestershire sauce and used Grey Poupon harvest coarse ground mustard. When it was hot out of the oven it did not stay together very well, but the next day it firmed up nicely and was not dry at all.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
This is very tasty. I made it once with salsa verde and once with fresh tomatillos. I used about 2lbs of tomatillos and broiled them about 10 mins then put them in the blender . Using fresh tomatillos was by far the better method if you have the time. I like things hot so I also added 1 fresh jalapeno. It was too soupy both times so next time I will add less chicken broth. I also used frozen corn and rinsed the white beans before adding.

Balsamic Chicken with White Beans and Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Not sure how I feel about this dish. Not a whole lot of flavor. I wish I had sauteed some onion as other reviewers did. I also used healthy request regular cream of mushroom soup so maybe that has made it less tasty. I did season the chicken with garlic and onion powder, however. I used a 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar and should have used a 1/3rd like the recipe called for, I did not find the balsamic vinegar overpowering at all. I think the golden cream of mushroom soup might be key and if I cook this again I won't substitute because the color otherwise is not that appealing.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
Great recipe. Doesn't need salt though. I also left out fennel because I didn't have any and the hot Italian sausage I used had some in it anyway.I did add sugar but not as much-maybe 1 tablespoon. Make sure you use high quality brands of ricotta, mozzarella cheese, and tomatoes-it makes a world of difference. I've also made the sauce by itself for pasta and it was well received.

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Great healthy chili recipe. I made it for Superbowl Sunday and it was a hit. Changes to the recipe: I used 3 boneless chicken breasts and that was plenty. As other reviews did, I added a can of diced green chili peppers, 1 whole fresh jalapeño pepper, and fresh garlic and a can of small diced tomatoes with jalapeños. I doubled the spices and used small red kidney beans. I cooked the chicken salsa and minced tomatoes on low for about 6 hours (no need to do this overnight) on low and then added 16 oz bag of defrosted frozen corn and the beans and cooked on low for another two hours. I may add another fresh jalapeño pepper the next time.

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This was very good. Next time I think I'll double the spices and saute and shallot or onion with the garlic. I used lamb instead of turkey. I also added fresh chopped cilantro to some Greek yogurt for a topping.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
These were fantastic. I used a stalk of fresh Brussels sprouts which I estimated to be about 2 lbs. I noticed some bad reviews from cooks that used frozen sprouts, I don't think this recipe is okay for anything but fresh sprouts. Like others reviewers, I cut the sprouts in half and only roasted about 30 minutes. Not bitter or mushy.

Anchovy Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Wow. Very tasty. Had some leftovers anchovies from making Caesar salad the night before and this was a great way to use them up. I topped it off with Parmesan cheese.
