Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Absolutely amazing and saves any frozen fish that on it's own would be unpalatable. I pan fried this and it still tasted amazing. For those low carbing, I have used coconut flour and would likely have been more successful if I used more oil and fried it longer. As is though this is delicious and smells absolutely amazing.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
Dry and crunchy and inedible as written. Had to add lots of spices and all the changes in order to make it palatable. Definitely not making this again.

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
This is a great recipe IF you let it marinade longer than overnight. I left mine in the juice for two days in the back of the fridge as I forgot it and it made one of THE most delicious chicken I have ever tasted. The second time I made this, I marinaded it according to the directions and it wasn't nearly as impressive. OK, but not the best in flavor. I substituted both times lime for lemon and legs for breast. Then omitted the olive oil and mustard and grilled it on a foreman. To me the mesquite liquid smoke helps a lot as well as leaving it in the marinade for a long time. First time I didn't use nearly as much soy sauce and just put in some salt and water to taste (I taste the marinade before putting the chicken in) Everyone has different tastes but I feel limiting the marination hurt the overall flavor and quality of the chicken.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Being a poor college student I don't have an oven and all I had was a skillet. I was hankering for a quiche so I looked at the tons of bags of frozen spinach I still had and decided I could make a pure crustless quiche in that skillet and boy oh boy was it very very tasty. I first sauteed half an onion (NOT AN OPTION FOLKS!) I then used requezon (spanish ricotta) and then some colby and cheddar and some slices of bread (yes bread) and it came out absolutely fabulous! People would call me crazy for not baking quiche but I'll be honest and say that it tastes absolutely wonderful either way. Thanks for the recipe!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
These were absolutely fabulous when only slightly modified for health and tasted like a mix between In-n-Out fries and baked lays. I used only cheap Idaho potatoes (10 lbs for $.88!) and omitted the spices. For the baking batter I used a flat square tupperware for the batter bowl, chopsticks for mixing/fishing the fries out, and modified the oil and water to 1/4 cup and 1 cup respectively. So first I skinned the potatoes and put them into a bowl of cool water and only chopping the spuds when needed. After chopping one potato I would separate the pieces with my hands by "rubbing the potato" to loosen up the cuts. Then I dropped them into the tupper-ware of batter and mixed them around with my chopsticks to get a good coating. Before fishing them out, I sprayed the foil covered cookie sheet with pam, set the toaster oven to 350 and cooked for about 15-25 minutes depending on how well you prefer them done. There is no need to turn them and you can also get creative with the spices (cumin was tasty on mine). Lastly you can choose to omit garlic and onion salt and sticking only with plain salt. I'm sure if you use more oil than I stated it will taste even better but this was really delicious and much healthier by quartering the oil and thirding the salt. Definitely making these again.

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
The first time I made this I stuck to the recipe minus the seeds. It was excellent and deserving of 5 stars though some of the items are not readily handy now in the kitchen (canned pumpkin, curry, cream, and veggie broth) I decided to try some substitutions and found this recipe very versatile, healthier and still very tasty. The following was substituted: curry -> cumin, pumpkin -> cooked kabocha, vegetable broth -> good chicken stock, cream -> 2% milk. I omitted the soy sauce and sugar and added half an onion. In the butter, I sauteed the onions and then added the needed flour until it started to turn golden. I added the milk, the chicken powder, cumin and cooked kabocha, and blended it together with an infusion blender while cooking until it was creamy. I also added some water to thin the soup though this is personal preference and you can use milk instead. The taste was wonderful and warming especially now that the weather is much colder. I find I didn't miss the sugar too much since the kabocha was quite sweet, and with a good blender even the cream is not necessary to make it smooth. Thank you for the base recipe and hope this is useful to anyone who has squashes around!

Kafta (BBQ)

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
We live in SoCal and we had Wahib's Kofta which was really great. Unfortunately their service leaves a lot to be desired and we decided to try some homemade Kofta of our own. I made regular use of the microwave to sample the proportions and had to end up fudging around until I quadrupled the spices except for cayenne as well as adding cinnamon. I also only used 1 lb of meat with more of everything else, didn't use skewers and also had it pan fried. The end result was still really, really good. It still had that original eye opening punch although some herb or spice is missing. Perhaps it was the mint or cumin or some other thing. But in any case thank you for a really great base!

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
First off this is an excellent base recipe that does need a bit of spices! It was so great that I burned one and it still tasted great :) What I did was added 35 or so Honey Ritz Crackers, then added 1/2 a teaspoon of salt, 1 tblspoon pepper, 1 tblspoon garlic, 1 tblspoon basil, 2 tblspoons parmesan, a handful of total corn flakes, 2 tblspoons of flour and blended it in a high power mixer. The result smelled great and after using 2 egg yolks and thinly cut chicken I cooked them on low fire for 5 minutes on each side using the suggestion of switching to high immediately between placing new strips of chicken. The crust is crunchy and delicious and the inside is oh so yummy. The only downside is that I had to use a lot of oil, but still the result is heavenly.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
The first time I made this soup it turned out a bit bland and I even added salt and cheese but it wasn't that great. The second time, it tasted much zestier yet I didn't add a pinch of salt. What I changed was I doubled the ham and then sautéed it in its own juices. After that I used half a cup of water to rinse the pan of any sticky ham seasonings and used that as broth. I finely chopped onions, celery and 1/2 a cup of carrots then used oil (or you may choose butter if you want) to sauté them until the onions were done. In the soup pot, I cooked the ham and the veggies while chopping the potatoes and when done chopping, the carrots were almost soft. What was most important that I didn't do the first time was I put the black pepper powder into the broth and cooked it with the potatoes. The more you add black pepper the zestier and "saltier" the soup will taste after you add the roux. Despite being a cheese lover I have to admit I didn't need to add cheese anymore to get a hearty flavor and actually added more flour, milk and water to make the soup lighter. I will probably double the amount of veggies next time and cut the pepper in half.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
I recently became very ill and didn't want to eat anything, not even my favorite foods. And with my mom away I have to come up with the daunting task of cooking soup by myself. So I found this recipe, followed the directions except used half a small whole chicken, cooked for 30 minutes longer, added a bit more water and boiled the pasta on the side. Just had my first taste and it is incredible. A wonderful comfort food full of italy like flavor, far fresher than any store bought canned junk, and with the added water not too salty for the sick. And note, the oregano and basil make this dish. Do what I did and drag yourself to the store if you have to. You won't regret it! Vin you're a lifesaver.
