Morel Mushroom Bisque

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Made as directed except used the mushrooms I had on hand (so it was half baby portabella and half crimini). SO good!

Vidalia Sweet Onion Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
Delish. I think the suggestions to use low fat ingredients are wise; this is very oily. Next time, I may chop the onions rather than thinly slicing (I used a mandolin, so it was easy, but I think I'd like the texture of the chopped better). Also, it's a little bland, so the hot sauce helps a lot; I'd like to think of an additional vegetable to use, but not sure what would be a complementary flavor.

Holland Cream (White Cream Filling)

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2013
Perfect! I quartered the recipe to fill a dozen maple crumb bars. The filling is light and fluffy and delicious. I used Spectrum Organic Non-hydrogenated Vegetable Shortening, which made it less greasy and less unhealthy than standard shortening.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I made a few unintentional changes, but I can still tell the base recipe is a winner for us. My only criticism is that it needed more salt for us. I used extra firm tofu (NOT silken style!!!) rather than chicken. I also added one leftover baked potato I had in the fridge, just to use it up. I had the oil too hot the first time I cooked the curry and burned it (EW!), so I didn't have enough for the second batch; so I used half the curry and filled the rest with turmeric and garam masala, then went to the store and bought more curry powder, so I really had the full amount of curry, PLUS the garam masala and extra turmeric. Gave it extra flavor, which is important for bland proteins like tofu and chicken. I cooked the curry and onions in a skillet, then moved it all to a crockpot and cooked on high two hours. I made a double batch for a party and served it with steamed rice.

Classic Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
Used yams. Peeled, cut to 1.5" thick rounds, boiled rather than steamed. Omitted water entirely. Huge hit, even with the kids. We topped half with marshmallows; both halves were equally wonderful. Definitely adding this to my EVERY HOLIDAY menu.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
Four stars as-is. Five with half the sugar. Cooked in a preheated, oiled cast iron skillet for a crunchy crust. YUM.

Broccoli Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I don't like raw broccoli at all — or so I thought. I can't get enough of this salad. I had it at a catered event yesterday, and ran straight home to see if I could find a similar recipe online. This was right on the mark. My hubs thought it was too sweet, and though I like it as-is, it would certainly do fine with less sugar. I completely omitted the bacon (which wasn't in the recipe I was trying to copy and I don't eat it anyway). Delish!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
Easy, but too sweet and the cooking time listed is way short. I prefer conventional PB cookies; they're worth the extra effort.

Corn Bread (Sweet)

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Yum! I halved the recipe and cooked it in a (pre-heated with a tad of olive oil) cast iron skillet. I split the all-purpose flour with half whole wheat and it was superb. Nice texture. (Not at all authentic for Southerners who don't eat sweet cornbread, but if you think of it as something else altogether, it's delicious.)

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
I bumped the heat up to medium to get it to thicken, and probably stirred constantly for at least 20 minutes, but it was SO worth it. YUMMMMM.....

Baby Carrots With Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
This was super easy, but a little too mayonnaisey for me. When I made batch #2, I swapped the amounts of sour cream (full fat) and mayo. More to my liking that way. But the 4 stars is for the recipe as written. I didn't put it on carrots; I stir fried tofu, onions and green pepper, and mixed it all up with rice and the sauce. Delicious.

Spanish Rice Original

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
YUM! I left out the bacon and didn't use olives or corn. We loved it. Served it to the toddler with shredded cheddar on top, and he was sold. Good stuff!

Sonoran Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
I loved this dish, as did hubby. I left out the red pepper and half the cayenne to cut down on the spice, and I left out the wine since I didn't have any and don't like it anyway. I used lemon instead of lime and dried cilantro rather than fresh because that's what I had. Definitely worthy of making again! I served it with "Spanish Rice Original" from this site, which was also a winner. Yum!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
I only had red onion, which worked great, and only had sliced Havarti (instead of provolone), which was also creamy and flavorful. We LOVED the dish!
