Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
This shouldn't be as delicious as it is considering how little work goes into it, but I'm going to be eating a LOT of this through the winter. Nicely done!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
My first time making banana bread. Was even doing while feeding a toddler. Still came out great. Three people demolished about 85% of the loaf over the span of one (albeit somewhat-lengthy) football game. Will use this again when the bananas start browning faster than the boy can eat them!

Eggplant, Zucchini and Sweet Red Pepper Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I added chicken and used dried basil in place of fresh (used 4 teaspoons). Overall, I think this is a sincerely solid dish. I'm glad I added chicken as it tasted great and added some texture to a dish that is otherwise very mushy. I did cut the zucchini in larger chunks, which helped, but I will add the eggplant to the pan a little later in the process next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

Springtime Asparagus and Parmesan Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Absolute love. Wouldn't have thought to do this, but will be repeating frequently. I used a chevre gouda instead of the Parm and it was terrific. Can't wait for tomorrow lunch with the leftovers.

Ash-e-jow (Iranian/Persian Barley Soup)

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
For ease of preparation, flavor and food cost, this MUST be a five-star recipe. I shall add that I made this a while ago and just broke some of it out of the freezer. It froze very well. My only warning would be to take care with the turmeric; not only can/will it stain, it can overwhelm other flavors in the dish. I also enjoy stirring a good bit of plain (goats milk) yogurt through it when it's hot and eat with buttered crusty bread. Check out the nutrition stats and add it to your repertoire post-haste! What are you waiting for?!

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Could not be happier with how simple and tasty these turned out. Cannot wait to make again. May even make in bulk and freeze for future dinner solutions.

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!

Authentic Cochinita Pibil (Spicy Mexican Pulled Pork)

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Lo Mejor! I'm going to have to stock up on achiote paste, because this made a fantastico slow-cooker meal. We sprinkled with a little cotija cheese and served with tortillas. Too easy and too good to not be tried.

Ann's Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Great Mardi Gras dinner slathered in a generous seasoning of Frank's Red Hot. Used ground pork instead of beef, chicken bouillon in place of beef, and also added some smoked sausage. Will start dinner earlier next time so I can use a lot more bell pepper, but love the simplicity and relative quickness. Oh, used Emeril's Essence as seasoned salt, too. Great idea!

Pan Fried Daikon Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
Made these with the crazy abundance of Shunkyo radish we got from our first few CSA boxes of the season and fresh chives in place of the red onion. Very solid meat-free burger option, but was more a score for me as it allowed me to clear out all those radishes. Won't wonder what to do with them next year. Also, the greens on the Shunkyo radish are delightfully tender. Go right into salad without blanching. Excellent.

Avocado Watermelon Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
Update: I DID put some feta into this salad and was glad I did. I think I need to use less dressing. I want the flavor of the dressing, but only just. Really, the rest of the ingredients are nearly enough... This gets five from me for sheer brilliance. We made this because everything in it is a favorite food item, though we'd never have thought to throw them all together. Once we did, we weren't sure how good it would be, but we were very, very pleased and can't wait to make it again. Though, next time, I'm determined to crumble some feta cheese over it as well.

Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
The whiskey sauce alone is worth making this recipe. I want to put it on everything. It would be insanely delicious on pancakes and/or waffles, methinks. Otherwise, the bread pudding was terrific as well. It's a simple recipe and quick to prepare. This is a hit. Thank you.

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.

Calabacitas con Elote (Zucchini with Corn)

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
Straight-up fantastico! Didn't take nearly 50 minutes, but I chop fast. Didn't have fresh corn, but look forward to the first crop. Served on the side of a slow cooker Cochinita Pibil with some tortillas. Will be eating a lot of this over the summer. Thanks!

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Great googly moogly. Love this recipe. Okay, so I left out the sausage, subbed golden beets (assuming red were preferred), left out the garlic and used a can of tomatoes with chilies in place of plain diced. Definitely not Ukranian by the time I got finished, but I'm sure were I to offer it to someone who spoke Ukranian, they'd be okay with it.

Fast Salmon with a Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
I happen to love ginger and was therefore incredibly pleased by just how bitey a bite the ginger in this delivered. Only sad thing was that the Copper River Salmon was so delicious off the grill, it was a shame to even put the sauce over it.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
Got near to completion of making this recipe and then came to the realization that we did not have cashews or any other nuts in the house, excepting a bag of salted, in-shell peanuts. My improv was to cut some going-stale pretzel sticks into small chunks and use them instead. Probably not as good, but definitely good enough. Wait, I also had no soy and used instead Worcestershire. Why that seemed immaterial, I know not, but it was perfect.

Easy Curry Couscous

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
This couscous has already become a weekly treat in our house! We use more curry and more raisins just because we love it that way. Made a triple batch of it for a graduation open house and had people just going nuts over it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
The five-star rating is for the inspiration. I'd never have thought of making this had I not come across this recipe. However, like many, I did make my own changes to give it more flavor. I added cinnamon, cloves, and crushed red pepper and increased the chili powder significantly. I also doubled the garlic just because I felt like it and added thinly sliced zucchini for more bulk. I found that the soup was very versatile and handled the changes and additions very well. Have fun with this recipe and make it your own. Oh, and the flavors definitely do get more intense with time. Lovely!

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.
