Vegan Fava Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
This was fantastic! I feel I have an edge on the city dwellers though as I was able to use fresh shell beans and cucumbers from the garden and locally produced maple syrup. I really miss living in the city and know that this dish would be just as good with any kind of canned beans if you can't get fresh at the farmers market over in Union Square (if they still have it there). Thanks for a great salad recipe!

Thai Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
I love this recipe. I have a lot of cucumbers coming in and this will be one of my favorite ways to use them. I've followed this recipe exactly and give it a 5. You can also add other things you have growing in your garden to change it up and it will still be a 5. I added Thai basil and mint last time along with the cilantro, running low on cilantro, more growing though :-). If your jalapeno's are mild like mine, you can add about a 1/2 tablespoon of minced ginger and that is good too! Great recipe!

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
This is great! I used unsalted butter instead of oil and I used homemade fish/seafood stock and (don't curse me, we just got 15 inches of snow on Monday before Mardi Gras, so no fresh available) canned tomatoes. I thought the 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper was a joke on us non-Louisianians. With all the hot sauce, seafood seasoning and cayenne why would you need black pepper? Right? But you really do need it, some how it adds a depth that you won't get with out it. Believe me I'm not going to wait for Mardi Gras to roll (Laissez les bons temps rouler, that is) around again before I prepare this wonderful tasty dish. Always remember to embrace "joie de vivre" and happy cooking!

Herbed Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
I made these exactly as specified. The were superb! I don't think I experienced the issue with the salt that others did since I always use homemade unsalted stock and unsalted butter when I make my stew/gravy. It is always best to adjust seasonings at the end, but if you use canned/prepared stock or cubes, go light on the salt and you can always add more towards the end. Thanks for a great recipe! Just like Grandma used to make!

Tangy Shrimp and Scallops

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
This is really good. The trick is to get the grill really hot and only use quality scallops.
