Slammin' Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
Meh, I'm sure this could've been better if I hadn't used the oil. It overpowered all the flavor, though the salmon was surprisingly moist.

Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
This was excellent! We changed a little to suit our tastes. Used about 6 medium Idaho potatoes, added milk and salted butter to taste until it was thick and creamy. For the meat mixture, we put in 2 carrots, 2 celery ribs, no mushrooms (hubby won't touch em), 1 tsp dried parsley, and about 3 cloves of garlic. Everything else was the same for ingredients. When cooking we also didn't drain the turkey meat once it was cooked because I was afraid of the layer becoming dry. We also covered the potato in a layer of a shredded blend of 4 italian cheeses, and baked for only 20 minutes. Came out DELICIOUS!! We'll definitely repeat it.

Cream of Mushroom Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
Delicious. I changed very little about this recipe. First, I used half the amount of thyme because I only had dried, and used half and half instead of light cream. I used the amount of flour in the recipe, but it didn't give me the thickness I was looking for, next time I'll add more. Also, a heavy hand on garlic powder towards the end of the cook complimented the soup beautifully. I also used an immersion blender to combine all the ingredients and make for smaller mushroom bits. Very nice, and a definite repeat.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
This was delicious!!! This is what I did. I used 1 package of cheese and garlic tortellini, 1-14.5oz can plain diced tomatoes, 1/2 chopped red onion, 6-7 small cloves of chopped garlic, salt, pepper, dried basil, 2 cups fresh chopped spinach, 2 tbsp flour, 1-1/2 cups half n half, 1/2 cup shaved parmesan cheese, and 2 cooked chopped chicken breasts. Tortellini was set to boil in lightly salted water with about a tbsp olive oil. Meanwhile, I sauteed the onion and garlic together in oil until tender, then added diced tomatoes, salt, pepper, and dried basil. Once bubbling, I added spinach, and mixed together. When everything combined, I added the whisked together flour and half and half. I added parmesan cheese at this point. Let sauce thicken while I chopped chicken, and threw this in as well. The sauce thickened and became a light pink. I drained the tortellini, combined with sauce in a bowl.

Ziti Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Husband was found hastily licking the sauce from the pan, and exclaimed "this was terrible. Never make this again." So this will be a repeat. The amendments we made were we seasoned and baked chicken breasts for about 30 minutes in 400 degrees, used half and half instead of heavy cream, and went heavy on the garlic and parmesan. The sauce thickened beautifully once corn starch (mixed into a half cup of cool water to eliminate clumping) was added. Also we left out the artichoke hearts, and used 3 heads of broccoli. Next time, I'll use 4 heads of broccoli, only 4 chicken breasts will be enough, and make extra sauce. This was delicious!

Delicious Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
This was easy, used readily available ingredients, and delicious, though next time I may go a touch lighter on the soy sauce since this seemed right on the edge of too salty. We'll be repeating this one indefinitely.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Absolutely delicious. I added cajun seasoning, salt and pepper liberally to both sides, and then in addition to the lemon slices, we squirted with fresh lemon juice. For the sauce, unfortunately we didn't have fresh dill. We substituted 2 TBSP fresh dill with 2 tsp dried dill weed. Came out great! We will definitely repeat this recipe, it was simple and flavorful, and the husband is in the kitchen licking the baking pan clean with an ear of corn.

Spring Greens Borscht

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
Unfortunately I couldn't find any sorrel, and I bet this was the key flavor I was missing. This was good, but I know it can be better. I filled a large soup pot about 60% of the way with water (which I salted), and that was perfect because it left enough room for vegetables and stirring without issue. My grandmother's recipe also calls for 1/2 cup of white rice to be added into the water with the potatoes, which I'll add next time. Also, I bought a package of prewashed spinach, which made the prep easier since washing each leaf can take a lot of time (a 5oz package yielded about 4 cups of chopped spinach, which was just right). Someone else suggested blending the soup, I would not, this is not intended to be a cream soup. I was generous with the salt, added an extra tablespoon of sugar, and served with sour cream. This recipe was close to my grandmother's, so I'll try it again and review once I've added sorrel.

Detroit Hot Honey Wings

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
This was fantastic! We didn't have wings, so we used tenderloins. When it came to the hot sauce, we used thai garlic chili hot sauce and added sriracha to taste. The heat of the cayenne complimented the sweet honey, we loved it!

Simple Creamy Lemon Chicken Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
This was quite nice. I had a few chicken breasts on hand that I dipped in an egg wash (with salt and pepper) and then breaded in crumbs and garlic powder. Baked the chicken for 27 mins in 400 deg, then covered with this sauce (doubled the recipe so we could have extra). Served with potato dumplings in caramelized onion, delicious!

Parmesan Garlic Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Didn't have yeast, so I put in baking powder instead (1.5 tsp to go with the 1.5 cups in the recipe, ended up not adding any flour because the consistency was great), used only 1 tsp salt, and liberally doubled the garlic powder. No need to wait around for the dough to rise, because of the baking powder substitute. Baked at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, then covered with foil until the bread became room temperature. Now they didn't fluff up quite like the pictures, however, they came out delicious anyway. Next time I'll try the yeast to see the difference.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
This was delicious! I was so glad to see a casserole recipe that wasn't entirely out of a can. No high fructose blah blah or other science experiments, this was all fresh ingredients! I made a few changes. I substituted broccoli for mushrooms (cuz the husband won't touch them), doubled the garlic, and when cooking the sauce, added 1tsp nutmeg, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Everything else I followed according to the recipe. Next time, I may throw in some of the cheese into the sauce as well as on top.

Perfect Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
These came out pretty good, except that the mayo was too much and overpowered the horseradish and worcestershire sauce, also maybe there wasn't enough egg yolk compared to other ingredients because the yolk mixture wasn't really solid enough. A good base, but with some needed adjustments.

German Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
This came out delicious. My only problem was, as another reviewer mentioned, the cake comes out very soft and fluffy. Which is great, except the frosting is thick and heavy, and thus hard to spread on what feels like a delicate surface. Admittedly, I was heavy handed in my coconut and nuts additions, and though I may go lighter on those two ingredients next time, I do still wish the cake itself was a little more dense.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2013
Finally succeeded in making bread! The first time I followed this, the bread was great except for an unfortunate raw spot in the top that just wouldn't cook away. After reading a few reviews, this was what I did. Followed the recipe, except I made buttermilk from milk and lemon juice. Combined all ingredients, kneaded in a large handful of raisins, and set on a floured pizza stone. Cooked at 350 degrees for an hour, took it out half an hour in and braised with milk and butter and returned it to the oven for the remaining half hour. After it hour was up, I took it out and immediately wrapped it in foil and a dish towel in room temperature, until it cooled. It cooked completely through and is moist, fluffy, and delicious. Win!

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
Wow. These came out great! Follows another reviewers recommendation to change up the ingredients a bit, so this is what I did. I didn't saute the green onions, used 2 cans crab meat, 2 eggs, and upped the old bay seasoning to 1/2 tsp as well. Also, I used about 16 Club Crackers, regular mustard, and regular bread crumbs. Everything else I followed according to the recipe, it yielded 9 medium sized crab cakes. Serve these with Garlic Aioli (also found on this website). Delicious, and definitely worthy of a repeat!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
Melted 1/4c sweet cream butter with about 2 tablespoons minced garlic, held off on the parmesan because I was already making garlic parmesan potatoes. Cooked 4 chicken breasts on 400 degrees for 23 minutes. Came out moist and quite delicious.
