Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I used pine nuts, and lime juice instead of vinegar. I liked this recipe although 5 cloves of garlic is WAY too strong. My husband took one bite and said that the amount of garlic was burning his mouth. He wouldn't eat anymore so now I've just wasted 1 lb of pasta. I would think 2 cloves of garlic is enough, especially since you're eating it raw. This is the first time I've made pesto with cilantro though and am pleased that there are other alternatives to basil based pesto which can be more expensive. Maybe next time I'll try the walnuts or pecans since they're cheaper than pine nuts.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Yum! I didn't have corn syrup so instead, I used 1 tbs sugar and 1/4 tbs water. It worked just fine! At the suggestion of others, I also made this in the microwave. I put it in for 30 seconds then stirred, another 30 seconds then stirred, then another 30 seconds and used a whisk to ensure the smooth texture. This glaze was a bit thicker than I thought it would be and when it cooled on the cake, it was almost like a fudge consistency. Because it wasn't as thin as I thought it would be, it didn't quite trickle down to the bottom part of my cake but that's okay! It still tasted great and I'll definitely use this one again!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This cake is awesome!! I followed the recipe without making any changes. Well, the only thing I did was to toss the chocolate chips in a little bit of flour before adding them to the batter. This prevents the chips from sinking to the bottom, like some people have noted. I used the Satiny Chocolate Glaze recipe from this site to pour over the cake and then dusted the top with powdered sugar. For the glaze, if you don't have corn syrup, I just used 1 tbsp white sugar and 1/4 tbsp water instead. It turned out just fine! My husband said it looked store-bought and my brother-in-law asked to take some home for later. Since my oven is so old and unreliable, I did have to bake it for about 15 minutes longer than stated. Excellent recipe and I'll definitely make this again!

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
I really didn't like this recipe too much but my husband did, which is why I'm rating it in the middle. To me, the meat tasted like breakfast sausage and the gravy just tasted like cream of mushroom soup. I will continue my search for a good salisbury steak and gravy recipe.

Spicy Basil Chicken

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
This was so good! My husband and I really enjoyed this and both of us actually took the leftovers for lunch today. I had bought some hot chili oil from Chinatown and that had the crushed up red peppers already sitting in it. I used about a tbs of that paste instead of the chile peppers. I only used about 4 tbs of the oyster sauce since that is already plenty salty and I omitted the garlic salt. Other than that, I did exactly what the recipe stated. This totally reminds me of a dish found at a Thai restaurant. I'll definitely be making this again. thank you!

Crispy Oven-Fried Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I didn't like this. The flour and milk combo made the fish have a gummy, pasty coating. There definitely should've been some salt, pepper, or any seasoning put on the fish before breading. This was bland and was even worse as leftovers. I won't be making this one again.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
This recipe was yummy although a little time consuming. I chopped the potatoes, celery, carrots and turkey the night before so that when I got home from work, dinner wouldn't take too long. The part that took the longest was waiting for the veggies to get soft, and waiting for the mixture to boil. I added about 1 tsp of poultry seasoning and just skipped the parsley and oregano all together. I cooked the bottom crust first in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes and THEN I added the filling. I would make this again although I may just boil the veggies in the bouillon mixture instead of cooking it in butter.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
I thought this recipe was really good. It was a bit sweet for my taste so next time I will probably use half of what's called for. Even though I read the reviews, I still forgot to line my dish with alumninum foil! I'll have to remember to do that next time because I'm sure it would make the cleanup a lot easier.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
So good! I used fresh basil instead of dried and I've made it about 3 times now. The last time, I didn't have time to marinate it for an hour and it still came out delicious.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I loved this meatloaf. The milk makes it so moist, to the point where it's almost falling apart as I'm trying to form it in the loaf pan. I didn't put any ingredients at the bottom of the pan and I instead put the brown sugar, ketchup and some mustard on top of the loaf. I've made this twice already and I will definitely be making it again in the future.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I thought this was really tasty. Instead of heavy cream I used half and half and then cornstarch to thicken it up. The recipe doesn't state that the chicken should be sliced up or chopped in any way but I found that it was easier to work with when it's cut up. I guess maybe it's because my pan was a little too small but I had to take the chicken out of the pan while I was sauteeing the veggies. Then I added the cream and other stuff and then put in the cooked chicken after I added the linguine. This recipe was actually a little more work than I thought it would be due to all the chopping I needed to do. I would make this again though.

A Jerky Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
This was pretty good. It was definitely easy and quick to make. The first time I made it, I used 2 jalapeno peppers instead of the habanero. It was good. Last night though, I made this recipe again with the habanero and I definitely like it better this way. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was spicy hot...that's good of course since my husband loves spicy food. I'll be making this again if I ever need a quick meal. I made the sauce and cut the chicken the night before and let it marinate until I got home from work the next day.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
Although I thought this recipe was "passable" my sister didn't like it. With the cream cheese, she said she felt as if she was eating a dip. I'm confused as to how this recipe is supposed to yield 4 servings because it was only enough to feed my sister and my husband. Since I only have a 5 quart slow cooker and there wasn't enough liquid in this recipe to fill a slow cooker of that size, it ended up burning and drying out the meat. I will stick to Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff on this site. It does take a little more work than this recipe but it's so worth it.

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
I really liked this and I'm usually not a big fan of curry. This was easy to make and I'll probably end up making it again. My husband thought it was a bit too sweet so I may reduce the sugar next time. I definitely can't make this all the time with the 2 cans of coconut milk this recipe calls for!

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
This was really yummy and I was surprised at how similar it was to something you'd find at a restaurant. When coating the chicken, I used 1/2 cup cornstarch and 1/2 cup flour. Instead of warming the coated chicken pieces in the sauce, I heated up the sauce in a small saucepan, pan friend the chicken in a skillet and then poured the sauce in to the skillet on top of the chicken. The coating didn't fall off my chicken that way. I don't believe the recipe specifies to put the crushed red pepper in the sauce so I didn't realize that until the very end. It would've been better if I had used the orange zest because it didn't really taste like Orange Chicken. It tasted more like Citrus Chicken. I served this with white rice and steamed broccoli. I will definitely be making this again.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
My husband had never had lemon flavor with his pasta before so the first few bites were a little shock to his system After that though, he really enjoyed it. I used half black pepper and half red pepper since he likes spicy dishes. I did about a half cup more of chicken broth and used juice from a lemon and a half instead of just one lemon, to make up for the added broth. I will definitely make this again because my husband said that it looks even better than Olive Garden.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
This was my first time making biscuits from scratch and these were wonderful! I took the advice of another reviewer and put everything in my food processor until I hit Step 3. I followed Step 3 as written in the recipe. I used buttermilk instead of milk and butter instead of shortening. I didn't really knead the dough and instead, formed it into a big square and used a knife to cut it into 6 squares. I left it in the oven for about 13 minutes and they fluffed up nicely. The outside is a bit crunchy but the inside is so soft. This reminds me of KFC biscuits. Yum!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
So simple and so good! This will probably be the only way I make tilapia in the future. I squeezed half a lemon and it could've probably used more. Yummy!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 1, 2007
This was amazing! I was a little skeptical before making this recipe since it was so easy and I was afraid that it was "too good to be true". It turned out great! I served these on Colombo Sweet Rolls and I made 2 pounds of meat that was enough to feed about 4 of us. I skipped the step about putting it in the oven and instead I just put the shredded pork and BBQ sauce back in the crock pot and left it on low for 1 hour. I also used Kraft Brown Sugar BBQ sauce....the "thick and rich" version...

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
This was a good, basic recipe. It was quick and simple but I really didn't see the need for the flour.
