Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
Don't know if it is authentic or not, but it sure is good. Again, to all those that "add this", "reduce that", "omit that", you are not rating the recipe, but rather your own. In any case, this recipe is great as is. You can just as easily sub other meats if you don't care for flank steak. Grilled over mesquite is awesome.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
I only used the marinade for this recipe as I really like the chipotle slaw from another one on the site. That chipotle slaw has just enough dressing in it and I didn't want to cover up the fish with a heavy sour cream. This marinade is fantastic. Can't wait to try it with shrimp

Nacho Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Great basic chesse sauce. Makes the kind of nachos that started at the concession stands. To all those that said this was bland. Do you see any ingredients that would make you think any other way. Give me a break. I followed the recipe exactly and it was far from too thick. Hope you enjoy it too.

Original Hot Brown

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I thought I was back home in KY. As it says, salt and pepper to taste. A little salt and white pepper is all it needed. As original as back home.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
No more teriyaki in a bottle. This was great. But as others have said, line your pan with foil! So glad I did.

Chicken Parmigiana

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
So simple and so good. I used italian bread crumbs, double dipped, and lightly drizzled some sauce on top before cooking. Spooned in on before serving after cooking as other have said. I wanted the breading to stay somewhat crisp.

Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Blue Cheese-Chive Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
I don't usually like to marinate my steaks, but this was outstanding. I used it on a ribeye and the butter makes the meal. The only thing I did differently was used a little onion powder in the butter instead of the chives. Not exactly the lowest calerie meal, but will defiently make this one again.

Garlic Feta Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
I don't know if you would say I used one or two cloves. I used one, but it was the size of my thumb.:) I used 1 cup of sour cream, no yogurt, and added 1 tsp of italian seasoning. Excellent is all I can say.

Mexicali Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
I was making the other Beer Margartis, and someone else brought this one. This is the only way I make them now. No need for mexican beer. Good ol Miller works just fine,

Awesome Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
What I thought was a mistake made, turned out to be great. I shopped for the ingredients from memory and bought low sodium chicken soup base. Then saw the recipe called for bullion. I used 1/4 cup of the soup base paste, but since it was low sodium, lacked flavor. So I went ahead and added a 1/4 cup of Wylers bullion crystals. I also added a couple of shakes of white pepper, a couple shakes of onion powder, and a dash of garlic powder. Perfect. I also cooked the noodles separate and used some of the carrots cooked with the chicken, and diced them up to add to the last step instead of re-cooking more. All other ingrediants were used as called for, and I will defiently make "my way" again.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
Very good. Followed the recipe pretty close. I made the mistake of only using butter to cook the chicken in. The problem with that, is that the butter all cooked down and I had to keep adding more. Really nasty looking pan. I think I will do 3T of oil, and 3T of butter next time. I also cooked the chicken, and removed, then deglazed the pan with 1 cup of sweet marsala, then added the chicken back to the pan, covered and cooked for 10 min. I was prepared to add some cornstarch to thicken, but it wasn't necessary. The wine glazed up and stuck to the chicken and noodles I served it over just perfect.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
MMM MMM good. The perfect dish to come home to after ice fishing! Since I had no onion in the house, added a couple of pinches of onion powder, a pinch of ground thyme, used one can of chicken broth instead of water. The biscuits I bought were only 7.5 oz, and two cans were plenty. Took the chicken out with 90min to go an shredded. Put back in with the biscuits for 90 min like others have said.

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I knew when preparing this that all the flavors were strong. When put all together, this is an explosion of flavors. I thought the cumin got lost in the lime juice. Since I love cumin, I may add a little to the fish directly with the salt and pepper next time. I used 2 peppers and a just a dash of cayenne. Had a nice kick to it. For those in the family that thought it was to much, simply not spreading extra on the tortilla made it just right for them. This recipe has now become my flagship recipe by which all others will be judged.

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Outstanding soup. You would think it took hours to make. Contrary to all the onion soup discussion, Lipton Onion soup is 2-1oz packages to a box. I used both packages and it was spot on. I didn't have celery, so I added some celery seed for flavor. Next time I may sift out the dried onions though and just use real. We will see if the dehydrated one soften up with time.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
I followed the recipe 100%. I too was skeptical about the cinnimon, but my experience has taught me that spices changes with time and cooking. So true with this one to. I didn't care for how it smell once mixed, and even after marinating, but once cooked, it was very subtle. My wife could not put her finger on what it was until I told her. Best I can describe was it was very very mild jerk flavor. I used 2 2lb pork sieloin.a Used my weber charcoal grill. Seared over hight heat for a few minutes on each side, then cooked indirect to about 145-150 internal temp. The left overs are going to be great in fried rice tomorrow.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

I will never steam it again. Retained all the flavor and was much easier to control how done it got.

French Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I don't know if it was the sugar water, or the fact that I switched and used russet potatoes, but I know I wont switch either.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
I used seasoned flour and a little seasoning salt. Used 1/4" of oil and will cut back on the oil next time. I also put too many in the pan at one time. But they were great anyway.
