Asian Roll Lettuce Wrap

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
This was delicious! I added about a tablespoon of applesauce to the turkey to help keep it moist. After rolling the turkey into ovals, I flatened a bit before skewering with 2 wooden skewers to help make it easier to flip on the grill. We also added just a splash of rice vinegar to the dipping sauce (in addition to the lemon juice) and offered chopped cilantro and Walla Walla (sweet) onions in addition to the other add-ins. Sweet chili sauce is a mildly spicy-sweet Asian condiment that went really well with this dish. (plum sauce would make a good substitute) For added eye appeal, we used a large round platter and lined with red leaf lettuce and placed the turkey skewers in a concentric circle on top. Dipping sauce was served in individual bowls at each place setting. It looked like a magazine spread! Great company dish since much of the prep work can be done ahead of time leaving you to enjoy your guests. I can't wait to make this again!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
5-star recipe! I used panko and the coating was light and crispy. A little labor intensive but just set everything up assembly line style while your oil is heating and things will go smoothly.

Scott Ure's Clams And Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
This is a great recipe. We substitute fresh basil for the parsley. You can throw the fresh herbs in when you add the butter or sprinkle it on top after cooking. Believe it or not, these make a sensational dish when camping - especially if you're near the coast and can pick up some fresh ones on your way to your campsite. This is one of our favorite Pacific Northwest camping experiences!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2001
I tried this recipe on my husband (a notoriously picky eater) and he loved it! This is a recipe box keeper for sure. The only thing I noticed was that my coleslaw had quite a bit of liquid in the bottom of the bowl. Anyone else have the same thing happen?

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: May 12, 2003
I tried this tonight for dinner and everyone in my family really liked it. Of course, I can't leave a recipe alone so I did add 1 T. of melted butter and a pinch of sea salt to the marinade. I think the butter helped keep it moist during grilling. A really great way to BBQ larger shrimp. We served it with the Basil Parmesan Orzo (from this site) and a green salad.

Parmesan Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
My son's favorite! So easy with just 3 ingredients but it's big on flavor. I keep it kid-friendly by using the small red potatoes but any size works with a slight adjustment to cooking time.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2002
I'm glad I read comments from other reviewers before making this! I also made sure to drain all of the liquid from the zucchini before adding the other ingredients. I fiddled with the original recipe a little. I added 1 potato, shredded, as well as some additional Old Bay. Freshly ground pepper seemed to really give it some "oomph." I found that the addition of instant potato flakes (about 1/4 c.) really helped keep it from being too soggy. I dusted with Japanese panko to coat the outside. They were really good this way. I'd make it again!
