Salmon Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
Made a great lunch for my husband. I used canned salmon and prepared guacamole and it was still delicious. I will try it with fresh salmon next.

Mushroom Cube Steaks

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I really liked the flavor of this cube steak. It is something different than just doing country fried steak. It is easy and good for a simple meal that turns out delicious.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Very Yummy!!!!! This is the best hummus I have ever eaten. It is a very good combination. I made it as stated and it would definitely be good to add different ingredients to it. I did add the cumin to it as other reviewers suggested. It really is delicious and easy to make.

Texas Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I thought this sauce was excellent and not difficult to make. I skipped the baking step and just rolled up chicken stuffing in corn tortillas and splashed the sauce on top. I let everything soak for a minute and then served with cheese on the side. It is great for those with dairy allergies in the family. This way the little one could eat the chicken and tortillas and the rest of us could still enjoy the cheese. I served with guacamole and Best Black Beans from this site.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I have traditionally had a difficult time finding a really good chocolate chip cookie recipe. My quest has ended. I have found the best chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe. I had to modify it because we have food allergies in our family. I did not melt the butter because I used a non-dairy margarine. I also used non-dairy chocolate chips and an egg replacer. Everything else stayed the same. I also took some reviewers advice and chilled the dough for a while. The dough was a little crumbly when I was putting on the cookie sheet, however, you could not tell when you took them out of the oven. I suggest if you are having trouble with the hardness after the fact that you cooked them too long. When I took them out of the oven at the prescribed cooking time, they appeared slightly undercooked. However, I let them sit on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes and then took them off. As soon as they cooled completely, I put them in a sealed container. The next day they were perfectly chewy and wonderful. I submit this review for those of you with food allergies or vegetarians in your family. You can substitute with most recipes and get a good result. A good recipe is about having the proper chemistry and balance of ingredients. Traditional ingredients like eggs, milk, and butter are not always required to get a wonderful result!!!!!

South Texas Carne Guisada

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
I really liked the flavor of the meat. There is not much heat, but when you are eating it with a guacamole that is authentic, a salsa with heat, and Best Black Beans from this site, you cannot go wrong and will want to eat the whole pot. Of course, you must serve this with authentic corn tortillas and not the ones from the grocery store......It is an absolute party in your mouth!!! This is going into the regular rotation for the south Texas fare.

Puerto Rican Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
I sauteed some onions and garlic in oil to put on top of the Yucca along with some salt, paprika, and herb mixture. This blended well with some Yellow Rice I made that contained onion, garlic, and saffron. I think next time I will include a little of the paste spices from the pork on the rice as well. The flavors of all the dishes blended well together and made an absolute "Party in your Mouth".

Traditional Gyro Meat

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
I made it as shown except at the end of the cooking, I put a weight on the top of the gyros to make it flat and squeeze more of the fat out of it. It also made it more rectangular in nature instead of humped like meatloaf. I had some problems mixing the meat in my blender. I had to do it in small batches so that it would not overheat my blender. This made the prep more time consuming, but the meat had a very good consistency. My three year old ate it right up. He thought it was a new kind of hamburger.... I think next time that it would be better grilled or sauteed in a little oil.

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
My family loved this recipe!!! Awesome way to reduce fat with a Turkey recipe without sacrificing flavor. I substituted Egg Replacer for the Egg substitute because my little one is allergic to eggs. Still came out awesome!!!

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
The sauce is excellent!!! The cooking method is tender. These ribs are a little fatty so remove as much as you can before eating. Leftovers were great!!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
I used leg quarters because breasts would be too dry after cooking that long in the slow cooker. I liked the sauce. It was easy, not spicy, and got through the chicken. I made the mistake of cooking the chicken too long and it was slightly dried out. However, the ease of the recipe and the tasty result will make me use this one again and again and again with a shorter cooking time.

Grilled Halibut with Cilantro Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
I used Mahi Mahi with this recipe and it was excellent. It is difficult to get fresh Halibut here in Florida. The flavors were subtle, but blended well together for a wonderfully healthy, quick, and easy meal. Thank you

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
These shrimp were so easy and quick to make. Of course, the hardest part is making and prepping the items to put with it and shelling the shrimp. I made fresh corn tortillas and fresh guacamole as well as Best Black Beans from this site. A fresh pico de gallo or salsa to go with it would have even been better.The fresher the shrimp the better these tacos will be. Be sure to keep moving the shrimp around so that the bottom ones do not get too done too quickly. Do not cook the shrimp too long as they will get tough. Also use a high quality, robust flavored bacon for best flavor. I was able to cut down the quantity of the bacon to 8 oz and still had enough flavor and pieces to go with the shrimp. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing...my husband gobbled it up and thanked me profusely.

Shrimp and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I love this recipe. The only thing I changed was to add the wine at the beginning so that the alcohol taste cooks out and the richness of the soup is enhanced as the wine cooks. I also added some paprika and used 100% crab meat. This is DELICIOUS!!!!!

Pebber Nodder (Danish Christmas Cookies)

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
These are delicious and simple. I had a1 time getting mine to raise like the picture showed so they looked very square. However, this could have been because I had to use an egg substitute for allergies in our family so I could not downgrade for that. I loved how small they were and very addicting.
