Teena's Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
Wow, LAGIRL, you have really outdone yourself! This dish is incredible! The only changes are I used spiral pasta, and romano cheese instead of parmesan. By the way, for those of you who substitute chili powder, it's not quite the same as the paste (though if you don't have/can't find the paste, it should work). It's thick and spicy, and really enhances the flavor for the chicken. I found mine in the produce section of Ultra Foods (I would assume it'd be in the same place as other major grocery stores. I had never heard of chili paste before until I accidentally stumbled upon it and realized what it was.) They are in squeeze tubes, near the fresh herbs. Look for it, because the paste makes all the difference! Wonderful, wonderful recipe! Hands down, a keeper!

Cilantro-Lime Rice

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
Compared to "that burrito place" (which I frequent at LEAST once a week), this comes close, but not enough for me to use as a substitute for my "burrito place's" rice fix. I wanted to leave the chicken bouillon out, but I always make my recipes as-is (or as close as I can) on the first run through. To anyone who is skeptical: leave it out, or cut the amount in half. I've tried another recipe with much better results, Google "Chipotle Copycat Lime Rice."

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
So good, but grilling each side on medium heat for 15 minutes each?! The bread would have been charred! Mine were perfectly browned at about 5-6 minutes per side. I would recommend keeping a good eye on your bread and toast it to your liking. Great recipe.

Chicago-Style Hot Dog

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
Ahhhh sweet home Chicago; one of the reasons I love this city. This is the ONLY way to eat a hot dog around here. And do not, do NOT ask for ketchup, ever! For those of you having trouble finding sport peppers, they're sold by other jarred pickle/pepper products. They range from a light to dark green, and are about the size of your pinkie. They CAN be spicy, depending on your spice tolerance, check out viennabeef.com and click on products until you find the sport peppers. It is true most people (aka tourists) pick them off anyways! But to each their own; you haven't experienced Chicago until you've had a true Chicago style hot dog!

Mexican Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
These were delicious! I didn't change anything in the recipe, except I sprayed them with butter spray, and baked them for 20 minutes at 425* My end result was 14 rolls, all of which were gone in less than an hour. My coworkers said this is the best thing I've made so far. Guess I'll be doing this one again real soon!

Fried Mac and Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I was hoping these would taste like Arby's Mac & Cheesers (I hope they bring those back!) but they didn't really. They were just okay, I don't know. I guess I just set high expectations for this recipe. They are quite time consuming to make, and just not worth the final product. Sorry for the poor review.

Okra Gumbo

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
10/23/07 *orginal review*I was so excited, I finally found file powder. It was in the seafood section, near the counter. It comes in a 1.25 oz can similar to grated parmesan cheese. That being said, I gave this recipe a whirl. If you use file powder, I'd recommend omitting the tomato paste, because the end result is super thick. Also, it adds way too much tomato flavor and therefore hides all the other flavors. Also, I skipped the flour step, because I felt it was unnecessary. The final result was just okay, all I could taste was tomato. Next time, I'll use more green pepper and onion, and no tomato paste. *12/13/07* So I decided to give this another shot, and still no luck. I did fine making the roux, but it's the darn tomato paste. I should have left it out, AGAIN, but I wanted to retry the recipe step by step. My end result, again was a thick, flavorless glop of tomato mess. You would never know there is onion or green pepper in this thing. Sorry for the poor review, but I guess this recipe isn't for me. Thanks anyway.

Egg Drop Soup (Better than Restaurant Quality!)

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
On a hot summer day, the last thing I expected to make tonight was soup. However, the craving fought long and hard and I finally gave in. I found myself searching AR for something quick, and with ingredients I had on hand. Presto, this was perfect. I did have to make a few adjustments, though. I didn't have broth on hand, so I threw 2 chicken bouillon cubes into a cup of hot water. I omitted the food coloring, and the salt. The bouillon cubes + soy sauce= enough sodium already! Also, instead of chives, I chopped up some green onion. Now if only I had some potstickers and fried rice...

Jamaican Fried Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
Wow, these are so good! I had a difficult time making them flat like patties, so they were more biscuit shaped. While they drained on the paper towels, I dusted them with just a pinch of seasoned salt. By the way, they taste good dipped in pizza sauce. Delicious, thanks for sharing.

Deep Fried Oreos®

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
Oh my, how delicious! I left out the egg and milk, and just used the pancake mix. Not the prettiest end result, but that doesn't matter because they disappear FAST. Thanks for this sinful, fabulous treat!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
I am also hopping on the "gotta use up easter eggs" bandwagon with this recipe. I love egg salad sandwiches, and this recipe is pretty good, except being a huge fan of dried dill weed, I had to add a generous amount (a little over a tablespoon's worth) to my mixture. I also omitted the salt and pepper. Thanks wifeyluvs2cook.

Three Chile Dry Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
Wowza! This salsa really packs a punch thanks to roasting the ingredients before hand. I could not find pequin chiles, so after reading up about them and their heat level, I decided to just double the serranos and jalapenos. Also, I'm a cilantro fanatic, so I used an entire bunch, and I didn't add the salt. The end result? A delicious, flavorful salsa that is quite spicy, but oh so addictive! Thanks HMAUSER!

Mexina Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
Wow, boiling the tomatoes and jalapenos really brings out the flavor! I can't believe how good this tastes. I didn't have a tomato on hand (which is a rarity!) so I used a small can of stewed tomatoes. It still came out great.

Twinkie® Weiner Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
This seems like it'd be a really bad pregnancy craving. I gave it to a coworker who choked it down, and then said it needs more cheese. Thanks but no thanks.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
Delicious! It tastes just like the exact kind I get from Trader Joes, only better! I could eat this all in one sitting. I'll be making this again.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
This was good! I took JUSTCYN's idea and tried this one in the microwave, for convenience sake. I sprayed PAM inside a small, square tupperware container, and added the pepper to the egg mixture (I left out the salt, I'm not big on it). This method worked like a charm. From start to finish, I had my sandwich in about three minutes. This is a keeper, no doubt. Perfect for the mornings I'm in a rush and need something quick before class. Not to mention I won't be spending time/money in the McDonald's drive-thru twice a week. Thank you!

Spicy Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
Yum! I really enjoyed these. However, I did add 1/4 cup of corn meal to the batter, it helps to make the batter stick to the tomatoes better.

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
What a great idea! No mess, no fuss, it's perfect for a quick breakfast on the run. I left out the ham since I didn't have any on hand and I added some chopped green onion and red pepper flakes for a bit of a kick. Thank you for sharing, Susan!

Slow Cooker Veggie-Beef Soup with Okra

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
Like LUZIANNADANNA, I bought the frozen veggie soup mix since it had potatoes and okra already in it. It took about five hours for mine to cook, but that didn't bother me. Also I only used one can of diced tomatoes. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. This is a staple item for cold, winter months.

Mexican Quinoa

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
I loved this! I followed exactly as written, including using a fresh diced jalapeno. I did get a bit nervous when the quinoa took longer to cook than I'm used to, but it came out perfect! I too added a can of rinsed and drained black beans. Of course to make it unhealthy, I added a small dollop of sour cream and a teaspoon of shredded cheddar cheese to mine. I doubt the bf will touch it (he's weary of quinoa), but perhaps if I drown his in cheese and sour cream, he just might touch it. Thanks for the recipe!
