Spicy Peach-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Very, very tasty. Although I didn't get a lot of spice - but that was OK - I enjoyed the other flavors. Used apricot preserves instead of peach - and I just skipped the second step of removing the chops from the skillet and added the wine to the preserves mixture - poured it right on the browned meat and then simmered. I did have to add some more water as the sauce became a little too thick before the pork was cooked. Buttered green beans were an excellent side.

Pineapple Iced Tea

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
"Yes" to less lemon juice. And a little more sugar for my taste, too. I enjoyed the pineapple/tea flavor and sprig of mint made for a nice presentation and the added taste was a nice compliment.

Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
This recipe looked really good to me, but I only had pre-cooked shrimp on hand. So instead of grilling I just sauteed them briefly with the marinade until the shrimp were heated through. (I flip-flopped the amount of the lemon juice and oil.) Try subbing Jamaican Jerk seasoning for the basil for a slight flavor variation that's very good, too.

Tomato Spiral Toss

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Good as a side dish, especially with garden ripe tomatoes and fresh basil. I added the tomato mixture to the hot pasta and heated slightly.

Italian Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Try using half the italian dressing. I had no problem with the patties holding together - (although I pan-fried the burgers so that if they didn't stay together, I could just brown the meat for "loose" hamburger sandwiches). The flavor was very good and it doesn't take much more time and effort than making plain burger patties.

Creamed Peas

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
You can use canned peas for this, too. Just drain and reserve the liquid. I found that I needed to add some back in to thin the cream sauce a bit. A sprinkle of onion powder boosts the flavor.

Hot Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
Absolutely one of my favorite desserts - easy to mix and comes out great every time! This time I used Special Dark cocoa. SO good...

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
With pre-cooked rice, this was a snap to put together at the last minute. I added about a cup of frozen corn, used ketchup instead of opening a can for the small amount of tomato sauce, and added some cumin for extra spice.

Zucchini and Onion Pancake

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I think this is a delicious way to prepare zucchini...not bland at all. In addition to the oregano, I did add a sprinkle of seasoned salt to the mixture and topped the "pancake" with Colby Jack cheese before serving. I used one reviewer's method of allowing the grated zucchini and onion to sit in a colander for 30 minutes to drain and that seemed to work very well for me.

Marinated Chuck Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I marinated the steak for 24 hours+ and it was very juicy even though I grilled it a bit longer than I would have liked... I used cider vinegar in the marinade. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Tofu-Veggie Stir Fry and Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
This recipe seemed like it would be a nice taste departure from my usual way of preparing tofu stir fry with Asian seasonings. But I found myself adding Asian flavors: a little soy sauce, rice vinegar, and hoisin sauce. I did use tofu that had been frozen (the first time I've tried that) so possibly it had a stronger taste that overpowered the gravy??? Sorry, but next time I'll go with my usual preparation.

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This recipe adds super flavor to cooked carrots. I used diced baby carrots so they cooked even faster. There was some liquid remaining in the saucepan that didn't glaze on the carrots, but I spooned that over white rice. Delicious!

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
Thyme was my herb of choice - I marinated boneless ribs-on-a-stick and grilled them on my indoor grill pan. This marinade seems almost too easy, but the results are flavorful, moist and tender pork. The photo I took is of the leftovers that I sliced thin and reheated in a saucepan with a little liquid. I think the flavor was even better. (But why is the featured food item in the recipe photo an ear of corn???)

Black Bean Spinach Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
Easy, quick, and tasty. I didn't use black beans this time because I had just the right amount of leftover seasoned refried beans. They were good on this pizza, but I think the black beans would have been better. The other thing I changed was to saute the onion with the spinach (fresh). Don't intend to give up tomato-sauced Italian Pizza but for a change this was excellent.

Honey Ginger Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Perhaps not as intense a flavor as I had imagined, but a very enjoyable quick & easy lunch served with steamed broccoli. Next time I'd like to use fresh ginger instead of powdered. Maybe I shouldn't have added chicken broth and that would have helped the flavors caramelize on the shrimp better instead of being in the sauce. Fresh basil made for an excellent taste addition.

The Stowe Show Sweet Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
The flavor and juiciness of these was really wonderful - 5 star. But I'm only rating the recipe 4 because I'd be really afraid to add hot liquid into cold meat. Thank you to tscheidler who suggested chilling for a few hours in the fridge. And thank you to the Stowe Show for a keeper recipe!

Maple-Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
VERY TASTY CURRY! Not too sweet, not too hot. The maple flavor was there, but very subtle. I did not have cooked chicken, so just sauteed uncooked pieces with the veggies. Needed to simmer a bit longer to make sure it was cooked through, so just used 2% milk instead of heavy cream and it thickened up just right.

Grilled Turkey Tenderloins

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Our grocery store's meat counter sells bacon-wrapped turkey tenderloins. I marinated and cooked the turkey with the bacon attached and it seems that gave this recipe an even more delicious flavor!

Brined Bratwurst

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Been looking for a good way to prepare brats indoors - I made just slight changes to the cooking process. Simmered the meat by itself, then removed from skillet and reserved remaining pan juice. Sauteed the onions in the same skillet (adding a little of the juice for flavor), then added back the brats. Good with or without the bun!

Grandma's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Kind of hesitated to try this recipe because of the negative reviews, but was looking for something QUICK, EASY, and with FEW INGREDIENTS and this recipe fit. I would suggest subbing Heinz Chili Sauce for the ketchup to tone down some of the sweetness and cut back on the sweet relish and brown sugar - add some dried Italian Seasoning and S&P. Served this as an open-face sandwich on a toasted bun with cheese sprinkled on top. I still prefer other Sloppy Joe recipes, but this one is rather tasty in a pinch. With modifications, 4 stars.
