Confetti Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
This was really delicious...and a great change from heavy holiday food! I added a can of corn and a can of black beans to turn it into a main course.

Chocolate Brownies with Fewer Calories

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
Wowie Zowie! I didn't believe that low-fat brownies could be, well, good. You have proved me wrong, Anna. I made two changes: 1. I substituted 2 ounces of the semi-sweet chocolate for unsweetened (actually makes them lower in fat, plus the hubby and I like a really dark taste when it comes to chocolate); 2. Added a simple, thin frosting of 1 tbsp. butter, 1 ounce of unsweetened chocolate, 1 tsp. powdered sugar and a tsp. of fat-free milk Thanks for an AWESOME recipe! I will definitely make this again and again!

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
I followed some of the suggestions to gussy up this soup with garlic and herbs, as well as to assume that onion slice meant a sliced onion. Overall it was good tomato soup, zesty. But I wouldn't call it great.

Asian Fire Meat

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
Gary this is DELICIOUS! My husband and I like a little more heat and more complex sweet so I made the following changes: 1. substituted brown sugar for maple syrup 2. upped the red pepper flakes to 1 tbsp AND added 1 tbsp of Asian chili paste (we like food that makes us sweat) 3. Added 1 can of water chestnuts This is a keeper--thanks for sharing!

Beef Samosas

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
This was good, but not very spicy like the samosas I have eaten in the past. I think that doubling the spices would help quite a lot. It seemed like the turmeric was the dominant taste, and that the other spices got lost. Next time I will also substitute a spicier chile pepper (like jalapeno). I also used wonton wrappers, and I thought they were excellent because they were so easy to work with.

Yummy, yummy, yummy!!!!!!!! This was really awesome! I didn't have any brown sugar, so I used 2 tablespoons of maple syrup instead. What an awesome recipe!

Lumpia (Shanghai version)

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeelicious! We followed the suggestions of using just pork and eliminating the salt. Also, we used about 4 tbsp of filling per wrapper (enormous lumpia!) in order to use all the filling with just one package of wrappers. Very tasty, and thanks!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
We would have rated this four out of five stars, but then we added more chili paste and hoisin sauce (not very much sauce came out of the original recipe). Also, used turkey and tofu and it was excellent! Thanks for a great lettuce wrap recipe!

Gypsy Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
I have to admit that I was dubious about using so much sherry (especially in combination with the chile peppers), but this was really wonderful! The broth had a great depth to it. Given the high fat, sodium, and calorie content, though, we gave it four out of five stars. A good one for those indulgent days.

Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
Mmmmm!!! I followed the whole-wheat flour suggestion (substituting the full amount of all-purpose for whole wheat flour) for a healthier kick. Also added about five blueberries to each muffin after the batter had been spooned into the tin, and before the topping was added.

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2005
I have to agree with other reviewers...the dressing for this steak salad is incredible! I will be whipping up extra and keeping it on hand for salad, chicken or pork marinade, veggies, etc.

Pork, Cashew, and Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
This tasted WONDERFUL, but was pretty short on sauce. Like other reviewers I marinated the meat in the soy/cornstarch mixture all day, and the pork was tender and very tasty. We really enjoyed the texture of the pork and green beans together. I would just suggest to others to make more sauce--while the meat was tender, the dish overall was a bit dry when paired with rice.

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
I disagree with the folks who thought that the chicken turned out dry. Ours not only turned out very moist, but also DELICIOUS. I upped the herbs a little bit, as I want my herbed chicken to be almost green with them. Thanks for a GREAT and SIMPLE recipe.

Garlicky Beet Delight

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
Let me first say that I am not a big fan of beets. BUT...this actually made them o.k., and my husband really loved them. I took your advice to add more garlic {selfishly I thought it would overpower the beet flavor}, and it created a nice taste combination. Thanks for a beet recipe that I can live with and my husband just adores.

Jollof Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
Wow--delicious! For those who question the authenticity I can only say that I've travelled through Africa, and the place is huge! If you don't get the same BBQ from one Southern town to another in the U.S., why would a West African recipe taste exactly like what you've had?

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
Wow! I never thought to use cottage cheese! My friends and I had a "girl's weekend getaway", and women who in their normal lives daintily pick at food looked like they were forming a rugby scrum around these enchiladas! I made one substitution: cotija (Mexican) cheese for the Monterrey Jack. THANK YOU for a great recipe!

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
These were pretty good, but very sweet. The second time that I made them I added cotija (Mexican) cheese in order to add a bit of salt and cut out some of the sweetness. I liked it much better the second time around.
