Rockin' Oysters Rockefeller

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
The best oysters rockefeller I have ever had! The beer is a nice touch, and brings something different to the recipe. Also tastes much better and is cheaper than aniseed liqueur, which some variations do contain. We add some grated onion to the mix usually, and serve with bread and salad. For something completely new, try substituting the oysters for jumbo shrimp.

Chicken Rotini Stovetop Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
It's a little time-consuming chopping all the vegetables, but everything else was quite easy from there! Provides a delicious end result; I shredded the chicken and used tricolor rotinis. Definitely a repeat dish.

Firecracker Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
My boyfriend requests these all the time in the summer! He loves spicy burgers, and this one really seemed to hit it home. Because of this, I up the amount of green chiles -because he likes it hot-, and I accompany them with the chipotle mayo from this site.

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2007
I love this !! It helps to marinate the outside first as it makes the chicken tastier, just with barbeque sauce, ranch dressing, etc. Also, you don't need to use beer for the main base; it's just for moisture. Cola and orange juice work just as well from experience, even though beer tastes the best.

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
A good take on the California Roll recipe. Left out the pickled ginger due to personal preferences, but otherwise everything was really yummy! Best served with Wasabi.

Ribollita (Reboiled Italian Cabbage Soup)

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
Very filling soup! Similar to the one I had in Tuscany, minus the canned tomatoes which I left out as personal preference. Don't cook for too long or else the cabbage goes mushy and tasteless, and choose stale bread -soaked in cold water for a day or two- for the best results. A wonderful fall or winter soup that doesn't disappoint. Thanks for sharing Josie!

Red Pepper Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
A new take on the classic Bay Biscuit. We love these with soup, they are just so different, yet really yummy with the addition of heat in the chili pepper flakes. Next time I will try adding garlic powder as I imagine they would be quite good!

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
Nothing comes quite close in comparison to this tasty dish, except I found it almost identical to the one at Outback Steakhouse :). Tastes great, and is much cheaper to make. Thanks for sharing Rebecca!

Cheesy Pizza Fondue

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
This stuff certainly is addictive. Yet another thing I like to make when the guys come over, or just for the occasional time when I get to snack at home ;). Try adding chopped pepperoni to the fondue.

Coquilles St. Jacques

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
I left out the button mushrooms, but only as a personal preference. Note: this dish is REALLY rich, so you might want to take it easy on the amount of cream and cheese that is put in there. Nonetheless, it is delicious. For fancy presentation, try scooping out portions into large scallop shells.

Brazilian White Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
Oh Nanda, this was delicious! As everyone else said, it is a good way to spice up boring old rice. We put in extra garlic as a personal preference. Very good as a side dish, or a light lunch all on its own. Mine seemed to make a lot for leftovers, so I put the rest in chicken soup the next day and it livened up boring old broth too. Definitely a keeper recipe.

Avgolemono

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
So yummy, and really versatile! I must admit we tweaked this a bit; the orzo can be substituted for rice or any other type of pasta. And we added a lot of garlic to the bunch. Nonetheless the end result turned out pretty tasty, a nice alternative to chicken or matzo soup when someone in the family gets sick.

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
Warning: Makes a lot yet can be easily frozen for leftovers. This stuff was GOOD, and really easy to make for a weeknight. The most time consuming part is chopping the vegetables, and while the soup cooks, stir every so often. I didn't have veggie broth so I used a can of chicken broth instead, also added in a can of chick peas. Very yummy, will definitely be making again.

Italian Confetti Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
Easy and delicious, what more could you want? I found this to be really good as a light lunch, or double the amount to take to a luncheon, family gathering, etc. Recommended it to friends, and it remains to be tested and true.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2007
This is a delicious wing dip! I was very hesitant on trying to capture the flavour of chicken wings in a dip at first, but I made this for game night and the guys devoured it. Followed the recipe to a T, except for substituting the ranch for blue cheese salad dressing, which I think made it even better. A sure winner.

Taco in a Bag

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
With the high caloric factor, these are great for a treat every once in a while. Made 20 of these individually for a family/friends picnic, and they were devoured by kids and adults alike. A definite success, and I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing Jennifer!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
I love this recipe. While it may be messy, the taste surely isn't missed out on. Had to omit pickled ginger due to not being able to find any, but nothing changed very much, taste-wise. I usually add a dash of cayenne powder for extra spice, and in the end wrap it all up in Boston Bibb lettuce leaves, like suggested. Great party food or for a light entree, will be making this again.

Chicken Noodle Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
I have been looking for a ramen noodle stir fry for the longest time, and my search is over. This is just fantastic! However, we substitute the broccoli flowerets and cauliflowerets for red and green bell pepper, but that's just personal preference; this is also quite tasty with the second addition either almonds, peanuts, or cashews, and some hot pepper flakes for spice. Follow the instructions and everything else as is, and there's no disappointment to be had.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
Easy to make, nor do they break the bank! I could live on these if I had to, my boyfriend says the same thing as well. Sometimes I add shredded chicken and usually substitute the fresh jalapenos for canned. Good staple food for vegetarians and college students, or I make these to eat for picnics, or just when I am on the go. The additions of corn kernels and cheddar cheese make this dish even better.

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Whether it be taquito, flauta, taco or burrito, I do know what these things are...Delicious! I ended up using flour tortillas that did go a little doughy on me when they were fried, but the mixture inside definitely makes up for it. The cumin was omitted as neither my boyfriend or I am fond of it, but they still tasted just as great. These are best served with homemade salsa and guacamole, and I accompanied them with a black bean and rice mixture.
