Stir-Fried Chicken With Pineapple and Peppers

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
This was an excellent recipe with a few modifications. The recipe did not say what to do with the pineapple juice so I added it to the sauce ingredients and doubled the amount of cornstarch. Also, I added the sesame oil to the sauce as a seasoning, not as an oil for stir frying. Sesame oil is too delicate and not a suitable oil when using high temperatures. Finally, I cut the chicken in thin slices instead of 1 inch pieces. The slices cooked quickly and provided more surface area for the sauce to coat. The results were delicious! I will be making this again!

Chinese Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
Excellent! I marinated the meat in a sealed plastic bag for 6 hours and then baked the tenderloin in a foil lined glass dish for 30 minutes, letting the meat sit before slicing. The pork was so moist and tender. The marinade, which formed a thin glaze on baking,imparted a delicious oriental flavor. I served it with my home version of fried rice. No leftovers! I'll definitely be making this recipe again. Oh, and did I say that it was so simple to make and there was no cleanup!

Chicken with Artichokes and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2014
Given the reviews and that I like the ingredients, I was very disappointed with the result. While the recipe was easy to make, and the chicken was tender, the dish lacked flavor and the flavor of the ingredients did not "come together." I will definitely not be making this recipe again.

Healthier Cheesy Ham Potato Bake

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
Wonderful, tasty recipe! I was looking for recipe for leftover ham, and one where I had all of the ingredients. This fit the bill and more. My husband, who normally doesn't like casseroles, and hardly comments on recipes said, "This is delicious!" after the first bite. I had to take the casserole away so he wouldn't eat more than a second helping! The chicken soup and sour cream make for a delicious creamy sauce. The only changes I made were to omit the butter and the added salt -- the dish doesn't need it -- and used low fat cheese and low fat sour cream. This decreased the amount of fat and cholesterol. I'll be making this again! Thank you mambear for submitting.

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2014
CB, I had to give your redone recipe 5 stars! I don't think I'll be trying it any time soon, but I can't remember enjoying reading a review as much. I will be passing along your recipe to all of my foodie friends.

Mushroom Bolognese

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
Delicious! I was looking for a meatless sauce that tasted something like a classic Bolognese, and this definitely did it for me. I didn't have enoki mushrooms so I increased the amount of portobellos. I also had to substitute ketchup for tomato paste and fat free half and half for heavy cream. I don't think it made a difference in the taste. I don't think this makes enough for 6 servings. Three seems more likely. All in all this is a delicious and easy meatless sauce.

Hoisin Pork Stir Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
This is a very good recipe, but I would double the amount of hoisin sauce. I could barely taste it in the original recipe. Also I would suggest stir frying the meat and the vegetables separately, then reheating with the hoisin sauce mixture. Will make again.

Slow Cooker Bolognese

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
I tried this because of the convenience of a slow cooker recipe. First, the preparation took about as much time as preparation for a traditional Bolognese sauce. More importantly, the sauce was really tasteless, even though I added sausage as the recipe writer suggested. I could not eat it. I had cereal instead. I only gave it two stars because my husband ate it. Sorry, but I will go back to my traditional recipe.

Healthier Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Delicious and easy. It uses ingredients that most people have on hand. I cooked the chicken for four hours on slow, then added the remaining ingredients and cooked the dish on high for thirty minutes. The chicken was cooked through, yet very moist. My husband, who usually needs to be prodded about what he thinks about a dish said, "This is really good!" after the first bite. A definite "keeper."

Slow Cooker Western Omelet

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
This is not a good recipe. It burned on the sides, was hard, and looked and tasted unappetizing. If you want to save time in the morning, prepare the ingredients the night before and cook up a fresh omelet in the morning with the hash browns on the side. If you have the time, try one of the many tasty and freshly made breakfast casseroles on this site.

Mushroom Chicken in Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
This recipe was easy but it lacked flavor, even though I added a larger amount of spices than the recipe called for. My husband asked whether I'd boiled the chicken because to him it didn't have the taste of chicken. I agree. I cooked it in the slow cooker for 6 hours on low and added the sour cream an hour before serving it over buttered noodles. The chicken was moist, but the dish was nothing special. Sorry, but I won't be making this again.

Whole Grain Florentine Egg Cups

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
Delicious "change of pace" for breakfast! I had fresh basil from the garden so I substituted that for the spinach. It worked out very well. I really liked the crispy "cup" and the soft, flavorful egg mixture inside. The egg cups looked as good as they tasted. I feel that most people will eat 2 egg cups (rather than 1) for a serving. Will be making again.

Fast Salmon with a Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2013
Excellent! I used wild caught Coho salmon. I used the suggested grilling time rather than relying upon the color of the cooked fish. I'm so glad I did. The fish was so moist and tender. I boiled the glaze down a bit more than recommended because I like an intense flavor. It was excellent. I have never received higher marks for any dish. This will be a "company" dish, as well as a special treat on a regular day! Thank you Chef.

Healthier Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
I was a bit skeptical when I saw the ingredients, but I wanted a healthier version of a family favorite. Not only is this recipe a healthier version of traditional mac and cheese, it's delicious! The second time I tried it I omitted the topping, reducing the calories and fat/cholesterol content even further. It wasn't missed. I also added a little bit of skim milk to make the sauce even creamier.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
This is a good recipe, but I didn't taste the ranch dressing nor the rosemary flavor in the cooked chicken. Perhaps if I would have marinated the chicken longer than 30 min the tastes may have come through. Given the high rating, I was a bit disappointed. It is a good recipe but I don't think I'll be making it again. Thank you none-the-less.

Hot and Sour Soup with Bean Sprouts

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
Excellent soup -- flavorful, filling, yet light. It's a great alternative to the thick hot and sour soups that have meat in them. It was also fast and easy to prepare. My husband, who spent years in the Far East loved it, as did I. I didn't have all of the ingredients, but given the great taste, I think this recipe is very versatile and forgiving. This is a definite "keeper" in our recipe box! Thanks for the recipe ReddPanda.

Ginger Sesame Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
This is an excellent recipe -- quick, easy, yet worthy of company. I didn't have salmon so I substituted large white fish (swai) fillets. As a result, I did have to increase the cooking time. Despite that, the fillets came out very moist and were very flavorful. I also didn't make individual packets, but wrapped and sealed all of the carrots and fish I was preparing in one foil-lined pan. The meal is colorful and healthy. It is a very versatile and "forgiving" recipe that I will definitely make again. Thank you for sharing.

Creamy Goat Cheese and Honey

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
Excellent! I wanted to get a quick idea of the taste of the recipe so I simply spread some goat cheese on crackers and sprinkled the ingredients over the cheese. The taste was wonderful and the ingredients balanced each other out beautifully. I will definitely follow the recipe for a better presentation for guests! However, this quick "taste test" shows how simple, forgiving and versatile this recipe really is.

Broiled Parmesan-Lemon Tilapia

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
Excellent recipe! My husband does not like fish but he came back for seconds and thirds. I did substitute Old Bay for sazon seasoning, and I had to broil the fish for a few more minutes at the end to get the golden brown coating. The fish was moist and very flavorful. A definite keeper! Thank you.
