Cucumber Dill Sauce(Goes with Poached Salmon)

Cucumber Dill Sauce(Goes with Poached Salmon)

I like this sauce! Very easy and tasty with poached salmon. I did not have any yogurt on hand so I only used the sour cream with the Dijon mustard which had some white wine. Parsley finely chopped adds texture and colour. — Nygrah 1/5/2012
Emeril Brined and Roasted Turkey

Emeril Brined and Roasted Turkey

Chicken I used this brining and breast down method for a 5 lb chicken with excellent results (cutting quantities in half). The chicken sat in brine for 4 hours. I did add a lemon quartered as well because I like lemon. I did not stuff the chicken with the suggested celery onion mix but simply stuffed it with the lemon and orange from the brine. The juices / drippings were boiled at the end to make the gravy- adding some low sodium chicken broth and flour - for a lovely delicate taste. — alexiahall 5/30/2011
European Street Style Beer Cheese Soup

European Street Style Beer Cheese Soup

Pretty good. I too did not add the onion. I had some extra Tex Mex Cheez whiz in the frig and used it for part of the cheese. So I did not need extra spice. Would have preferred a smoother soup. — swibirun 3/29/2011
Martha Stewarts Yorkshire Pudding

Martha Stewarts Yorkshire Pudding

I reduced everything by a third because there was just the two of us, but it worked out pretty well. Cooked 20 minutes to rise and brown. No drippings were available because I was slow cooking roast. Used pre heated individual muffin tins with 1 Tsp veg oil in each — cleverkt 2/8/2011
Greek Style Moussaka

Greek Style Moussaka

I have had moussaka in Greek restaurants but this was my first time making it. On the whole - it is pretty good as a first try, although might like more body (with potatoes?) I salted the eggplant slices to draw moisture as this is a usual procedure with eggplant. I cut the recipe quantities in half because wanted fewer servings, but found I needed to add more tomato paste and red wine for flavour. There is a small typo - "cool" not "cook". Because there are just the two of us, I cut the recipe in half. However 1/26/2011
Pork Stew with Cornmeal Dumplings

Pork Stew with Cornmeal Dumplings

just tried the cornmeal dumplings- not the full recipe- technically speaking, they should have been good but I found them quite bland even when using aged cheddar 1/19/2011
Arroz Con Pollo [Rice with Chicken]

Arroz Con Pollo [Rice with Chicken]

Really good-my husband commented on how delicious it was. Although I cut the recipe in half for two- I accidentally left the rub ingredients the same- so probably hotter chicken than intended. But the sour creme helped balance that out. Thanks for a good one. one note- Not clear what size can of tomatoes needed. — tyson 1/16/2011
Beef Wellington (Individual)

Beef Wellington (Individual)

The general recipe is good and easy to follow, but I did find my tenderloin rather bland tasting. I used brandy instead of a Madeira or sherry. Make sure you chop mushrooms and shallots very fine- you want this to almost look like a pate. Some Welli 1/6/2011

Spicy Tomato Soup with Black Beans, Potato and Squash

Spicy Tomato Soup with Black Beans, Potato and Squash

Very good all around. Did find mine ended up more like a stew or chili than a soup. Was a might mild for my taste so made several adjustments to seasonings to boost flavour. 12/29/2010
Pierna De Puerco Asada (Roast Leg of Pork Creole)

Pierna De Puerco Asada (Roast Leg of Pork Creole)

I would try this again because the combination of flavours seems promising.First attempt of this recipe not that successful though -- in part because all ingredients are not listed at beginning. e.g. Sherry, lime etc. And not sure what purpose of various steps are. Is this intended to come out with a pull apart type of pork? 11/8/2010
