Indian Curried Barley Pilaf

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2015
Well it tasted pretty good. My 3 rating is not for the flavor of the food but for the actual recipe. I cooked it for 30 minutes and not close. 10 more minutes and the barley was still hard (and still simmering). One hour and I gave up.

Smoked Salmon Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2014
I'm only giving this a 4 but just because I did it a bit differently and can't say for sure how it would be if I'd followed it exactly. But the version I ended up with was a 5-star, and that's coming from my husband, who is very critical. The quiche texture was light and it had excellent flavor. My version: For the "crust", I used 3 canned refrigerator biscuits, rolled very thin, and pressed into a crock. Instead of cubed Cheddar, I used one cup of shredded Colby Jack, and did NOT add more cheese on top at the end--one cup was plenty. I used dried/minced onions instead of real ones since my husband won't eat real ones. I did put it into a blender but I don't really see any need to do so next time. I think that whisking it together well would produce the same result. Instead of parsley and sage, I used just a little dill weed, because I think think the flavor blends best with salmon, and it still adds the color. I used SMOKED salmon instead of regular salmon, which adds an inordinately different (and better) flavor in my opinion. I cooked it for only 25 minutes but my crock continues to cook for a bit after something comes out of the oven. What a tasty meal!

French Cafe Summer Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
I liked the collection of veggies. Great color and textures. As to flavor, I expected it to have a bit more zing. I might try adding some balsamic vinegar next time. But quite good overall.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2014
Did first batch exactly as recipe calls for except sprayed on the olive oil rather than drizzling (per the poster's follow-up review). After 9 minutes, I had ashes. Kale-flavored ashes. Next batch was for only 7 minutes at 340 and only a few were burned, mostly the smaller pieces. So I guess that is what I will stick with and just be extra-sure that pieces are uniform in size. Flavor was pretty good; might try some other seasonings to spice it up next time.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
This was good. It had a bit too much dressing so I would suggest to pour some out before serving and use a slotted serving spoon. I agree that it is best when made a day or two in advance.

Brine for Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
Spectacular. Quite a tasty twist on traditional smoked salmon. I quartered and juiced the fruits, throwing in the entire quarter once juiced. Aside from that, I followed the recipe exactly and have no regrets. Brined for 18 hrs, smoked for 5 hours but kept thicker pieces in the smoker another hour. Just a wonderful, unique flavor.

Blueberry Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
Quite different than I expected but it was good. I think I will modify the recipe to bake the crust for less time--it was a bit dry. It takes a long time, due to needing it to cool, but it's actually quite easy to make. Comments from guests were that it was a perfect blend of sweet and tart.

Especially Easy Apple Cheesecake Crisp

My husband, who is hard to please, thought this was fabulous. It was really easy to throw together so I'll be making it again soon.

Lentil Soup

Did not use celery, tomatoes or cheese but this was still quite good. Had an excellent flavor from the wine that was unexpected.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
This was so good that my husband, who does not eat vegetables, ate two helpings. I didn't even add the cheese and it was still extremely good.

Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
It was delicious, and everyone else thought so too. I used croutons rather than soft bread, and a mix of cheeses (cheddar, mozzarella and monterey jack) so it wouldn't be so greasy. Aside from those small changes, I followed the recipe exactly and it was fabulous.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
I marinated this for several hours. It was moist but not particularly full of flavor. I think I will increase the amount of lime next time, maybe try using some zest.

Snow on the Mountain Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
I was surprised at how tasty this was. I used frozen beans and just a touch of coconut oil (instead of olive oil and butter). So very good--even my friend who does not like green beans took a second helping! So simple, so yummy!
