Chicken Stew With Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
I put chicken & lima beans in the ingredient search, and this is the only recipe that came up. I actually had everything necessary, so I made it, and I was VERY pleasantly surprised. I didn't have enough chicken, I didn't use any onion, I used 2 large russet potatoes, a can of lima beans, drained, a 14.5-oz can of chopped tomatoes, drained, a whole can of coconut milk and chicken broth, cumin, curry and salt and pepper to taste. I didn't measure anything. Made on the stovetop. Browned the chicken first, then added the vegetables and seasoning. Stirred that around until the spices were fragrant, then added the chicken broth and coconut milk. Covered and let simmer about 40 minutes. Delicious! Even my super-picky husband liked it! Will definitely make again!

Marian's Creamed Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2005
This was great and so easy! I didn't bother with the topping or baking and everyone was raving and helping themselves to seconds. Tasty enough for company and easy enough for family. Thanks!!

Flank Steak Pinwheels

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
First rate! Had to make changes (of course!); I used fresh spinach that I sauteed until wilted, shredded Gruyere and no onions (husband hates them). I don't think I flattened the steak enough, because I wasn't really able to create a "pinwheel," but it roasted up nice & juicy and the filling was great. Can't wait to make it again with feta! Thanks!

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
3/8/2006 I guess I'm still looking for the perfect chicken curry with coconut milk. This was pretty good, but just not...quite...right. I'd try it again, though; just do some tinkering with the spices. It tasted just a little bland. 9/1/2011 Changed my mind! Followed another reviewer's tips: Used a whole can of coconut milk because I didn't have any yogurt, a chunked up potato added along with the chicken and peas added along with the lemon juice. Was a little bit freer with adding the spices, and used a spicier curry powder. Used powdered ginger and added some garam masala. Really delicious! Served with my favorite plain naan bread from Trader Joe's.

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Fantastic! Very much like the puttanesca I had in Napoli. Like other reviewers, I reduced the oil to 2 tblsp., and I added a bit of white wine to make the sauce thinner. Well named "puttana" (); a very lusty sauce. Delizioso!

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
These were great! I brined the chops first in a sugar/salt/water solution for 1/2 an hour, and didn't add any salt to the rub. I used low-sodium canned chicken broth instead of beef anything (I think beef bouillon or broth tastes tinny), and added a flour/water slurry when the chops were done cooking to make a first-rate gravy for mashed spuds. Will make this over & over! Thanks!

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
My husband and I both really enjoyed this. I used olive oil instead of butter and added Italian herbs to plain breadcrumbs. I think the only thing I would do differently is mix the breadcrumbs and oil or butter together before putting on the salmon; I had some completely dry breadcrumbs in some spots, and soggy, oily crumbs in other spots. I was hoping for a crisper topping, like what I put on mac & cheese. Other than that (and that was my fault), this was delicious! Thanks!

Balsamic Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
I really liked this, and even more important, my husband liked it more! I used 4 slices thick-sliced bacon (too lazy to go to grocery store for pancetta), no onion, and added peas & fresh basil to the "sauce." I should have used more vinegar, but that was my own fault. Will make again & again! Thanks Kimber! 6/21/11 update - Husband does the grocery shopping, and I goofed by asking for 5 ounces of pancetta, rather than 5 slices. Well, you can never have too much pork product, so I went ahead and used it all. Still left out the onion, but stuck to the recipe otherwise. Delish!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
5/14/2009 - I was kind of disappointed with this. The chicken was nice & juicy, but I couldn't taste the glaze at all. 7/31/2011 - I was kind of in a bind for something to make tonight with chicken, so I thought I'd give this another try, since I had all the ingredients. Changed from 3 to 5 stars, MUCH BETTER! I used some other reviewers hints - boned, skinned chicken breasts, less butter, Dijon, garlic salt & garam masala. I also marinated the chicken in the refrigerator for about 1-1/2 hours before baking @ 425 for 20 minutes. Served with a green salad and cranberry-walnut bread from the wonderful French bakery not far from our house. Would be great with basmati rice...next time, I guess.

Peanut Butter Pie X

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Wow! I thought this would make a good take-along for a block party. Made it in a 9x13" pan, pressing crumbs only on the bottom. Did what a couple of others have done; used 16 ounces cream cheese and 1 pint cream (didn't want to have 4 oz. cream cheese & 1/2 cup cream left over), and a whole 18-oz jar of smooth peanut butter. Thought about chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for garnish, like some others, but just went for the remaining chocolate cookie crumbs. Just tasting what was left in the bowl gave me a tummy ache, it's so RICH! But delicious. It should serve the whole block nicely. Great recipe!

Lebanese Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Husband and I really, really enjoyed this dish. No need to marinate; absolutely delicious without having to think about it hours before. On Weight Watchers, so made changes: 2 skinned & boned chicken breasts, baby potatoes, halved (not peeled), black pepper, added cumin and oregano (per other reviewers), about 1/3 cup lemon juice (from 1 pretty big lemon), decreased oil to about 1-1/2 tablespoons. Baked covered for 20 minutes, uncovered for an additional 20 minutes without increasing heat. Covered dish once out of the oven while I finished preparing a green salad, about 10 minutes. Chicken was wonderfully juicy and tender, potatoes nice and tender. The cumin and oregano really made the dish, I think; very complementary flavors. Lemony, but not overpowering. Absolutely first rate. Easy enough for weeknight dinner, but I would definitely serve this to company, carrying the Lebanese theme out with fresh pita, spinach with pine nuts and feta cheese, and maybe a nice knafeh.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
I made these today to use in the Eat Michigan Salad I'm making tomorrow, and of course I had to sample to make sure they were fit to eat ;-) Wow! I've made a lot of sugared nuts in my time, but these were the absolute BEST! I hope I can keep enough for the salad! Thanks for the recipe!

Eat Michigan Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
Oh yum, yum, YUM! One of the best salads I've ever had. Even husband liked it, and he's not a big one for sweet in salad. Or salad, period, for that matter. But he ate all but 3 cherries. I think that the tanginess of the goat cheese and the tartness of the cherries more than compensated for the sweetness of the nuts and maple syrup. The dressing by itself is fantastic. I used the Sugared Pecans recipe on this site, and they were to die for, too! The only change I made was to use a Pink Lady apple because I didn't have any Granny Smith's, and I was just making it for husband and I. Will DEFINTELY make again (like, tomorrow!).

Aunt Carol's Spinach and Fish Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
Except for salmon, halibut & most shellfish, I'm not a big fish fan. Husband is a HUGE fish fan, so I thought I'd try this. I was sure I wasn't going to like it because the fish was so...fishy...but I LOVED it! I used panko for the breadcrumbs and added a fair helping of fresh grated nutmeg to the spinach mixture. I sprinkled the cod with garlic salt and pepper, then topped it up with the remaining panko and cheddar. I don't understand how anyone could bake it at 325* for 20 minutes and consider it done. I baked mine at 400* covered for 10 minutes, then an additional 10 minutes, uncovered (to brown the cheese & crumbs), and husband's was still a little on the translucent side (he had a very thick piece). Mine was done, and it was delicious. I think maybe 400* for 25-30 minutes would work, and I'd try other types of whitefish, but other than that, I'm very satisfied with how it came out with my few changes. Husband even liked the spinach, and he's not a spinach eater at all!

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Wow! YUM-O! I made these to take to work for a returning co-worker on sick leave. Husband doesn't like ginger, so this was a good excuse to try them. I played a little fast and loose with the amounts of fresh, candied and powdered ginger, but stuck to the recipe otherwise. I guess the "pain in the butt" is having to keep rinsing my hands in cold water to keep the dough from getting too soft, and I kept the dough in the fridge between batches. I got way more than 18 cookies, which is a Good Thing. I'll have to make a little sign telling people they REALLY need to like ginger to enjoy these fabulous cookies.

Sweet Corn Tomalito

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This was absolutely delicious. I served it as a side dish to Dr. Pepper Pork, a good braised pork recipe on the Pioneer Woman website (pork shoulder braised in chipotles w/adobo sauce, Dr. Pepper & brown sugar, 300* for 7 hours) and it was a wonderful contrast to the spicy pork burritos. Easy to make, even though I needed to use both my KA and my mini-processor (lots of cleanup!). The cornmeal mixture in the processor never did become "smooth" (I used a medium coarse cornmeal), but that made no difference. We all loved it, and I'll make it every time I do a Mexican or Tex-Mex dinner!

Mojito Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
So refreshing! It's peak berry season here in Oregon, so I used triple crown blackberries, raspberries, fresh peaches (peeled), kiwi and watermelon. I used the tips given by others, I chopped the mint (a lot more than 3 sprigs!) and muddled it with 1 tablespoon sugar, then squeezed the juice of 2 limes over. I let it stand while I prepared the fruit, then strained it over the fruit, pressing hard on the solids. It was refrigerated all day while I went to the movies with my book club friends, then served at the after-movie discussion. Everyone raved about how good it was, and it was gone before the end of the evening. I think this would good with just about any fruit, so it would be something that could be served any time of year. A definite keep...thank you so much!!

Minty Orzo Lentil and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
A really good, refreshing and good-for-you salad! I followed someone else's tip about partly cooking the lentils, adding the orzo and finish the two together. Less clean-up...always a good thing! I used French lentils, dill weed and 2 garlic cloves. I also omitted the onion, added chopped artichoke hearts (canned & well drained) and stirred Dijon mustard into the vinaigrette. Wasn't super-picky about measurements. I toasted some pine nuts and set them to the side for people to put on top if they liked. Many compliments & requests for the recipe. Made a ton, so that's what I'll have for supper tonight. Thanks for a keeper!

Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Exceptional! I've never been a big cornbread fan, but husband loves it, so I was on a mission. I substituted melted and cooled butter for the oil, like others, used 4 tablespoons powdered buttermilk (a cook's best friend, BTW) to 1 cup water and cut back a little on the sugars (not much, about 2 tablespoons of each). Baked at 425 for 23 minutes. The top was a little browner than I expected it to be, and when I cut it, husband thought the interior was too dark. But the taste! Wow! Husband used Land o' Lakes Light Spreadable Butter, but I didn't think it needed anything. I'm glad I cut down the sugar; it was definitely sweet enough. The crust was fabulous - very tender yet crunchy, and the interior was very moist. Made a cornbread believer out of me! Thanks for a keeper!
