Pork Green Chile

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
I love the flavor of this. I did use two chopped fresno peppers rather than the canned jalapenos. The only issue I had was with the consistency. I had let it simmer for over 90 minutes and still had more of a soup than anything, so I uncovered it, turned up the heat and let the liquid reduce until I had the stew-like texture I had hoped to get. Thanks for the recipe.

West African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
This is pretty tasty, but I feel like something is missing. I'm going to have to play around with this to get it where I want it, but I still loved the dish.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed this chili. I doubled the tomatoes, added 2 tablespoons cumin, four chipotle chiles (in Adobo sauce) and a bottle of Henry Weinhard's Blonde Ale. I will probably tinker with it even further as I still want a little more flavor, but it's a great start for a turkey and black bean chili.

Trinidad Pelau

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
I had to use kidney beans in place of the pigeon peas, but otherwise made this to spec. It's unbelievably simple and good. I look forward to enjoying this for many meals to come. Nice recipe!

Veggie and Cilantro Hummus Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
Found the hummus to be a far too salty. Had to add tahini, oil, lemon juice to cut it. I like the idea, though.

Confetti Couscous

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Not bad, but a little on the underwhelming side, excitement-wise. Could use a little more seasoning.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Just add another positive review to the pile. If I had anything negative to say, it would be about the high amount of sugar in the dressing. I might cut that down or sub it with some honey or something next time.

One-Dish Rockfish

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
Substitution: Chardonnay for Vegetable Broth (Who has this stuff in their house anyway?) and Red Snapper for Rockfish I also sliced up the entire lemon and covered all the fillets with them. I don't think it made much difference. I didn't season with salt and pepper whatsoever. I tend to leave that for the table. This is a nice, simple way to prepare some fish. I think using the wine altered the taste profile a bit, so I'd likely make some other seasoning choices next time, but I liked it overall.

Our Favorite Olive Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I cannot tell a lie, I really like the flavor of beef with olives and tomatoes, but I found this to be FAR too salty. I probably could have guessed how it would taste, but I was still a little surprised at how hard it was to get past the saltiness, despite really liking the flavor otherwise.

Apple Curry Turkey Pita

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
Phenomenal! I used canned chicken intentionally to make this simple to make for sandwiches to carry to work. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. What a great sandwich! Thank you.

Spicy Indian Chicken and Mango Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
While I didn't follow this faithfully, the results were unbelievable. I had no fresh mango, so I went to the freezer and used a tropical fruit mix I use for smoothies, which had papaya, mango, and pineapple. I also used half a sweet onion in place of the shallots and added sliced red bell pepper and snow peas and let them simmer in the sauce with the chicken for about ten minutes. I did not add any seasonings, but also was fairly heavy handed with the curry paste. The balance of sweet with spicy was really, really delightful. This is going to be in the regular rotation at our house!

Chayote Squash Side Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
I liked it. I didn't love it, but I'd never used chayote for anything, so I'm thankful for the new side dish. I think with a little more seasoning it'll be one of my favorites.

Baked Mango-Ginger Swordfish

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
I pretty much liked this. I used some dry Chinese rice wine in place of the sherry, as that was what I had and ended up enjoying how it balanced the sweetness of the chutney and complemented the ginger quite nicely. The only negative for me was that even 30 minutes at 350 F wasn't even close to long enough to get my fish flaky, which meant that my potatoes sat on the stove a little longer than I'd have liked.

Potatoes with Fresh Ginger and Chilies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
First, save your breath. I'm aware that I'm rating a recipe even though I changed it. Thanks. I started making these before I realized I didn't have any tomatoes in the house. I also had put the last of the ginger in the house in with the swordfish I was baking, so I didn't use that either. Curry leaves? Who has curry leaves just laying about? That being said, what I got as a result was pretty tasty. I'm definitely going to make sure I buy some curry leaves when I go out for tomatoes and ginger! Thanks for a great idea for a side dish. Oh, and I used an Anaheim chile. I'll likely use something with a little more heat next time.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
Made these again for a Super Bowl Party. This time, I propped them up in a glass dish by making a wall out of aluminum foil, so the peanut butter stayed in better. Then I put them under the broiler for a few minutes to get the peanut butter crusty before lying them down in the dish to roast at 375. They're still great. First, I have to say that the entire office was skeptical of these. Some wouldn't try them when I made a few dozen of them. Those who did unilaterally were pleasantly surprised at how 'not awful' the results were. This is a terrific alternative to cheese-stuffed peppers and should be tried before judged. Super Bowl Sunday seems like a good time to experiment. Also, try sticking them, uncovered, under the broiler. I did them both ways and preferred those done under the broiler to those roasted in foil.

Chicken Stew With Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Didn't care for the idea of making this in the microwave, so I used all the same ingredients on the stove in a stockpot. I found it a little bland, initially, but I think it's a pretty good recipe overall. I think topping it with a handful of chopped fresh thai basil would be a nice addition. I might even add a little ginger next time. Thanks for the recipe.

South African Yellow Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
We had this with some 'South African Boerwors' from Uli's at Pike Place Market. I thought it went well with the sausage, but was still a little too sweet. I'll definitely try this again, but will cut the sugar drastically. Thanks for the idea.

Squash Stuff

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This recipe makes a fairly bland panful of ground beef, tomatoes, and vegetables. Definitely would benefit from added seasonings. We sprinkled liberally with Cajun seasoning mix and ladled it over fresh-baked cornbread, which ended up making it a nice little meal. Perhaps some fresh herbs next time or something.
