Cucumber Raita

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
This was delicious! Changes I made: - used strained nonfat plain yogurt (don't have Greek yogurt available) - omitted mint - added garlic powder - added cumin - grated the cucumbers and pressed them between two paper towels to strain them - and I ate it right away because I didn't want to wait. YUM!

Spicy Cucumber Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
This soup was a hit! My kitchen smells delicious and I can't wait to try it again. What I did differently: - omitted the crushed red pepper flakes - used chicken broth instead of vegetable - used 4 smallish cucumbers - added 3 small potatoes What I plan to do differently next time: - half the cayenne pepper (at least) - puree half of the soup to a chunky consistency, and puree the other half to a creamier consistency I didn't believe the reviewers who said it was too spicy. We love spicy food so the only thing I omitted was the crushed red pepper, because we didn't have any on hand. It wasn't spicy enough to stop me from eating two bowls of it -- but I do think that next time I will at least halve the cayenne pepper. If it's still too spicy after that, I may cut back on the curry. I think the curry is part of what makes this so tasty though, so that's the last thing I'll consider cutting back. My husband didn't like the creamy consistency, so I'm going to try leaving half of the soup a little chunkier for him next time. My husband is not a soup lover, and we were both a little wary of cucumber soup -- but he really seemed to enjoy this soup so it's definitely going to be a keeper for our family!

Tropical Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
Delicious! This was a huge hit with my daughter and my husband seemed to like it too. A couple notes: I only had pineapple chunks so I chopped them up really small, instead of using tidbits. A quarter cup didn't seem to be enough, so I put in a little more. I still didn't think it was enough when we ate it, so I think I will use a half cup or more next time. I would probably also put more onion and garlic in it next time, but that's just my personal taste. :) Also, I served this with Thai yellow curry rice -- the smells were delicious, but the flavors didn't mix well, it made the dish taste too salty. I also tried the sauce over boiled potatoes though and it was delicious -- the potatoes just soak up the flavors.

Bum's Lunch

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
This was good -- we had it for the first time tonight. I sliced the potato a bit too thin though and it got a little mushy. Next time, I think I will alternate layers of potato and onion, and season the meat more.

Stovetop Yankee Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
I tried this with Tara G's alterations and it was very good. It was a bit too "soupy" for me, but still delicious!

Lebanese Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2006
This was a very easy recipe to make. I tried to scale it down for just my husband and me but it came out way too lemony for me. My husband loved it though, so I'll definitely try it again!
