Seafood Stuffed Avocados

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
When I tasted just the seafood salad, I thought something wasn't quite right and probably wouldn't be making again; however, the avacado put all of the flavors in perfect order. Used fake crab only but otherwise made recipe as is. Served with "Easy Asparagus" and a thick steak au poivre. My husband actually requested that we invite company for dinner just so I can make it all again.

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Great taste. Used broccoli slaw for ease, and put the peppers, carrots, green onions into my mini food chopper before adding. Kept the cilantro too. This made the recipe an easy one for a weeknight. Definitely needs only half of the dressing. Wasn't flat or wilted for leftovers with the broccoli slaw.

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This was supurb! Made exactly as written. It makes a LOT, so will probably use half the recipe next time. Served with the Grilled Peanut Chicken and Asian Coleslaw from this website. All 3 were prepared and ready to serve within an hour or so. That's a winner in my book if I can make it as a weeknight meal resulting in very desirable leftovers.

Mom's Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This is excellent; have made it 3 times now. My changes: Add chives to potatoes (and I like LOTS of potatoes on top); add garlic, Onion Soup Mix, 1/2 can beef broth, and beer. Simmer for about an hour. Shredded cheee on top. Can use tomato soup instead of sauce (I was in a out of the tom. sauce but decided I loved the flavor of tom. soup in this one).

Italian Sausage with Farfalle and Broccoli Rabe

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I've made this only once, but will make again! Both hubby and I loved it. The cheese does turn into a globby mess and the sauce doesn't thicken like most sauces, so I added corn starch to thicken and mix better. Have patience, it thickens when added to the al dente pasta (picking up on starch from that). Used regular broccoli because I couldn't find Broccoli Rabe (and still don't know what that is). Didn't have red pepper flakes so used Cayenne pepper (just a tiny bit). Used fresh broccoli (don't like frozen) and suggest putting it in only 1-2 min before adding the pasta (mine was overdone by the time it was served). I didn't add mushrooms, but will next time. Excellent recipe!!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
I made this as directed, except to reduce the soy sauce (because I didn't have low sodium kind) and probably added a little more garlic ... but otherwise as directed. It was fabulous! Wouldn't change a thing. Put in a frozen tenderloin straight from the deep freeze in the morning, mixed all of the flavors, poured on top, set it to low, and when I got home 8.5 hrs later, it was pull-apart tender. I added corn starch to thicken, then pulled it all apart with a large spoon, and mixed it all up with the sauce. Delish!! Doesn't make a pretty picture that way, but sure is good.

Fresh Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Fantastic exactly as recipe says. Light, great summer salad. Served with chicken salad sandwiches and iced tea. Doesn't get any better than that.

Pumpkin Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
Made as written. Excellent side dish. Didn't taste too much pumpkin but definitely a different taste than plain risotto. Was a perfect side dish to pork roast.

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Both my husband and I absolutely loved it!! Exceptionally quick, easy, and tasty. I made this as is, except to use water to thin out the sauce. Will try next time adding some peanuts maybe. Used other reviews and served with thai noodles and slaw. Perfect, perfect, perfect!!!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Made this with some suggested changes ... used 1 cup sherry and 1/3 cup worchestershire broth in place of some of the water. Used beef broth for rest of the water to equal 2.5 cups total. I love the blended flavors and oh so tender meat after cooking all day in the crockpot much better than a stovetop version. Had to add some cornstarch/water treatment to thicken it up in the end.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This is great!! Fast, easy, kid friendly, budget friendly. Everyone loved it. On advice from another review, I added a small can of MILD green chilis, corn, and black beans. Mixed in the corn and black beans after shredding chicken. Served over boxed Spanish rice. It's a keeper.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

This was very good. I did NOT add the additional salt; it would definitely have been inedible if I had.

Tomato Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
This was fantastic. I took it to a pot luck and it was loved by all of the adults. I added some Penzy's Fox Point for a little additional flavor (don't add more salt if used) because I didn't have any fresh dill. Maybe I'll try some fresh basil next time.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
We really liked this. I'm surprised hubby liked it as much as he did considering it's a little unusual. Even though I'm pretty timid with spicy things, I think I'll add a tiny pinch of red pepper flakes the next time.

Citrus Swordfish With Citrus Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
For the first time, ever, I enjoyed the fish dinner that I cooked. I used Mahi Mahi because they didn't have any fresh swordfish (and frozen can have a fishy taste) and I cooked it exactly according to the directions, including the time on the grill. It was so good that I was able to take the leftovers for lunch the next day and I still enjoyed it. I can't do that even with restaurant fish.
