Shrimp Marinaders

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
I had something similar to this at a recent wedding, so I was very excited to try this. I used the basic recipe, but I can never leave anything alone. I taste-tested a shrimp about halfway through the marinating time, and it seemed to need a little zip, so I added the juice of one lemon, some chopped green onions, and a couple of dashes of cayenne pepper (we like spicy). Perfect! This is great as an appetizer, or as a main course on these hot, steamy days. My husband liked it so much he asked me to make it when his family comes to visit next month!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
SO good! I made a couple of small changes, just to reflect our personal tastes. I increased the curry poweder to 3 T. and added 1 t. of garam masala. I also used quite a bit more salt than the recipe called for, to balance the sweetness of the tomatoes and coconut milk. As another commenter suggested, I simmered the dish uncovered, and it thickened up beautifully. My husband had three servings before I made him stop so there would be something left for my lunch tomorrow! Thank you, Roma, for an easy and delicious recipe!

Dar's Super Savory Sauerkraut Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
This was FANTASTIC! My husband is Lithuanian, and LOVES sauerkraut, so I'm always on the lookout for recipes that include it. This was just incredibly good. I made it exactly as written, but when I make it for my Lithuanian MIL, I'll probably omit the cheese , and add some crumbled bacon, using the bacon grease in place of the butter. Thank you so much for this recipe - it's going in the permanent file!

Picadillo

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I made this exactly according to the recipe, and it was incredible! I served it with canned black beans (mashed, with onions and garlic sauteed in olive oil) and fried plantains. My husband I both ate until we couldn't eat another bite. The spices in the picadillo, and the melding of flavors with the beans and plantains were just fantastic. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
This was really, really good! The only changes I made were to add 2 T. of butter to the chicken broth, more balsamic vinegar (cause we love it) - maybe 2 T., and a little grated parmesan before adding the mozzarella. My husband using his finger to scrape up the left-over sauce, and he was a little miffed that I had only made enough for the two of us! I think, even with the added butter and parmesan, this is a very healthy dish, and will make it's way into our permanent rotation. Thanks for a great recipe!

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
This was really, really good! Mongolian beef is my favorite dish when dining at Asian restaurants, and this definitely measured up. I was unable to find flank steak, so I used top sirloin instead. The only other change I made was to use low-sodium soy sauce, and it was still plenty salty. The beef was tender, flavorful and spicy. We love hot stuff, but if you don't, I think this would be just fine without the red pepper flakes. My husband I both loved this, and it will be going into my permanent recipe file. Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow Cooker Bean Casserole AKA Sweet Chili

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This was really, really good. It took almost no time to prepare, and didn't require a long cooking time, either. I did add half of a large chopped onion when I sauteed the bacon and green peppers, then chopped up half a large jalapeno when I had everything combined, just because we like a little kick. The flavor was incredible. My husband just kept eating and eating, then finally said "what's IN this??" I've been trying to cut back on our grocery bill (who isn't), and this is a very tasty way to do that. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Oatmeal Crispies II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
Other than using salted butter (unsalted tastes flat to me), I followed the recipe exactly, and these cookies were AMAZING. SO good and SO quick and easy. Thirty minutes from start to clean-up. I'll be making these a LOT. Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork

YES! This was a HUGE hit at dinner tonight! Prepared exactly as written (except for the garnishes - I was so hungry I forgot!) and it was PERFECT.

Cauliflower with Dijon Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This was unbelievably good! I'm not usually a big fan of cauliflower, but like brussels sprouts, I eat it anyway because it's so good for me. My husband loved it, too...in fact, we fought over who would get the leftovers for lunch (he won). I pretty much followed the recipe except for using less cheese - 1/2 cup - and sprinkling paprika on top before baking. Next time, though, I think I'll just coat the raw cauliflower with the sauce mix, and bake it in a dish large enough to spead the florets in a single layer. That way, each piece will be coated with the yummy sauce. Thank you SO much - I'll definitely be making this again!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
This was my first time roasting a chicken, and I could not be more pleased! I did follow the advice of some reviewers and added a lemon and onion to the cavity of the bird; I also used garlic-pepper salt, which resulted in a flavorful, crispy skin. The meat itself wasn't salty enough, but it was so tender and juicy, it didn't matter. Everyone can just salt to their own taste this way. This is also a very economical dish; I bought a 5-pound chicken for $4.00, and it fed four people (including two BIG men!), with some left over. An added bonus: this makes the house smell better than any potpourri I've ever used!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
My GOODNESS, this is good! I just finished shredding the meat, and it's now bubbling away in my Crock Pot, waiting for my husband to get home. If I manage to wait for him, it'll be a miracle. I used a very cheap pork roast ($6.00 for a 6-lb roast), and I think the fresh pepper I used was a poblano (the kind they use to make chili rellenos. I also added half a small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, but other than that I stuck to the recipe. I had a few nibbles when I was shredding the meat, and almost swooned!

Sauerbraten I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2007
OK, we haven't officially eaten this yet - it just finished cooking - but I couldn't wait to rate it. I followed other reviewers' advice and after marinating for 4 days, I cooked the roast in the crock pot, with all the liquid. Dinner's not for a few more hours, but I had to try a piece, and oh my goodness! The meat is AMAZING! Very tender and flavorful. Both my husband and I LOVE German food, though I've never tried making sauerbraten before. I was a little nervous, since I'm not that fond of very vinegary foods, but this is the perfect blend of sweet and sour. I'm serving it with red cabbage and potato pancakes. I can't wait. ONE warning to anyone trying this for the first time - this will smell up your whole house! I could even smell it OUTSIDE the house. I'm going to try boiling some vanilla on the stove after dinner to see if that gets rid of the smell.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
Oh, my...this is sinfully good! Far, far better the recipe I've been using for years. One note...if halved, this recipe makes exactly enough to frost a 13 x 9 sheet cake - IF you don't "sample" too much of the it before putting it on the cake!

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
Yummy! Very creamy, with a more lemony flavor than other hummus recipes I've tried. I followed the recipe exactly, except for adding a teaspoon of cumin. That's just my personal taste, and I think it would still be delicious without it. Thanks for the recipe!

Glazed Dijon Carrots

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
I'm not normally a fan of cooked carrots - I much prefer them raw - but these were WONDERFUL!! I think using baby carrots makes all the difference, as the natural sweetness balances the zip of the dijon mustard and the ginger. I've recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure and am looking for flavorful, yet healthful, recipes, and this fits the bill! Wonderful! Thank you so much for the recipe!

Sticky Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
I just made this using a "harvest chutney" from my local farmers' market, and boneless, skinless chicken thighs. My husband and I both LOVED it...this is finding a permanent spot in my recipe file! Tender, juicy, and flavorful...this is good enough to serve to company!

Pork Steaks

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
This is SO easy, and SO good! I used some tenderized pork chops (like minute steaks) that I bought at the local grocery. I'd never seen pork like that - it must be a local thing (I recently moved to Illinois from Alabama). Anyway, I followed the recipe exactly, except I was out of minced garlic and used garlic powder instead. I would never have thought so few ingredients could make something so tasty, but it was delicious. I served it with mashed potatoes, which were delicious with the sauce over them. This has earned a permanent spot in my recipe box!

Saucy Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
This was really, really good. I'm not a huge fan of brussels sprouts, but I try to eat them regularly because they're so nutritious. The sauce is perfect - not overwhelming, and relatively low in fat. My husband loved them, too. I'll be making these regularly.

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
These are SO GOOD! My husband LOVES pancakes and would eat them every Saturday and Sunday if I would make them, but I'm not that big a fan, normally. I don't usually care for the texture - too dry or "packy", but the texture of these is unbelievable. Very fluffy and tender - they really do melt in your mouth. One tip - I assembled these the night before, keeping my wet and dry ingredients separate until I was ready to cook them. This kept prep time to a minimum and would make them doable even on week-days. Thanks for a GREAT recipe!
