Senor Caesar Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
I enjoyed this dressing. I didn't have chipotle peppers, so I added a dash of Tobasco and left out capers per personal preference. I halved the recipe and it made enough for 3-4 large salads. I served it over romaine hearts, croutons, fresh shaved park, and anchovies; good stuff! THANKS for the recipe!

Steak Marinade Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
This was a nice marinade. It hasn't become my go-to steak marinade (which earns 5 stars), but we liked it and I'd make it again if I couldn't make our go to (Northwest Steakhouse Steak Marinade from this site). I marinated (in a glass baking dish in the frig) our Ney York Strips for close to 10 hours. The only sub I made was Tobasco for Siracha as it's what we had on hand. THANKS for the recipe!

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
These were really good! I used sea salt in place of kosher and 1T was a tad much. If making a similar sub, start w/about 1/2T and adjust per taste from there. I also misread the chili powder amount in my overtired state and used 1T. I was worried I'd ruined dinner, but it actually wasn't too spicy (though, I'll probably revert to 2tsp next time). THANKS for the recipe!

Canadian Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
I was a little wary when I realized our fresh garlic was spoiled and I'd need to use jarred minced in it's stead. However, even with the necessary sub it was still great! I left out the capers per personal preference. It came together quickly and really satisfied my craving for a caesar salad. It'd be nice w/some anchovies. THANKS for the recipe!

Easy Broccoli and Ham Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Our guests, and Mr. LTH, loved this! I'd have probably rated it "4" stars, myself, but I have to give it "5" based on their rave reviews. I chose to make a potato crust, rather than use a pie crust, and I assembled it all the night before (partaking the potato crust first) for an effortless breakfast the next day. I used a steam able bag of frozen broccoli, which made assembling even easier. The directions don't say when to add the cheese; I'm assuming you should add it w/the broccoli/ham mixture as it didn't work so well added to the egg mixture. I had to bake mine a bit longer since it'd been refrigerated. THANKS for the recipe!

Cheddar Ham Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2014
Delicious! I followed the recipe, though I did use frozen white/yellow sweet corn, as opposed to canned, and I also prepped both pans (the white sauce and the veg) at the same time on different burners to reduce cook time. I also couldn't resist adding 2 tsps of yellow mustard to the white sauce and I'm glad I did; it really worked well. This is a very rich and hearty soup. THANKS for the recipe!

Garlic Bread Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2014
This was good! You really can't go wrong w/popcorn, butter, cheese, and garlic! My only caveat is that it tends toward the salty with all of those wonderful ingredients. I'd go easy w/the garlic salt, or even cut it w/some garlic powder. THANKS for the recipe!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
I was prepared to LOVE this. I prepped the marinade and marinaded the salmon all day while we were at work. Mr. LTH did a bang up job grilling the salmon, but I just didn't LOVE it. We'd eaten Firecracker Grilled Salmon from here last week and I think that's my issue. This was OK, but I definitely preferred last week's salmon (I didn't even finish mine; opting for more potatoes!). THANKS for the recipe!

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
We love roasted broccoli, so I was excited to stumble up on this recipe. However, neither one of us really cared for it. The tang of the lemon juice just really didn't work for us. THANKS for the recipe!

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
FANTASTIC! I doubled the parm and spices and didn't measure the EVOO (just coated the bottom of the PAM sprayed glass pan and a drizzle over the potatoes). Our oven is quite temperamental, so I set the temp for 500, hoping for at least 400, and they were perfect in about 38 minutes. I cubed the (white) potatoes for a better roast in our oven. I ended up eating way more potatoes than salmon or broccoli tonight! These will be a staple in our world; THANKS for the recipe!

Quick Chicken and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
When Mr. LTH woke up sick, this became a last minute Sunday afternoon lunch. I always keep pre grilled/shredded BLSL chicken in our freezer, so I used that in place of the raw chicken. I also added a T of butter, just because I love the richness a bit of butter adds to soup. I always use chicken stock, so I did here, as well. We only had 1% milk, but I'd have used skim if we had it. The only "white" beans we had were blackeyed peas, so that's what I used, though I'm sure that's not what I was supposed to use (they worked, though!). I added well more than a 1/2 tsp salt, probably closer to 1-2 tsp, but I like "salty" soup. This was an excellent soup that came together in a short amount of time, just as the title suggests. I'd absolutely make this again. The red pepper (and I used some I'd previously frozen w/no noticeable impact) and corn (white, frozen) added a nice bit of sweetness to the soup. THANKS for the recipe!

Blue Cornmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
These were pretty good. I'd been searching for a recipe to mimic The Mission's (San Diego) Blueberry Cornmeal pancakes and decided to try these. They weren't what I was looking for, but they were good! I subbed yellow for blue cornmeal and added blueberries. THANKS for the recipe!

Greek Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
This pizza didn't taste as good as it looked/sounded to me. I thought it would be an explosion of flavor, but it really wasn't. I'd even added a base layer of some ricotta/spinach filling mixture I'd had left over from Spinach Manicotti. Don't get me wrong, it was good (and worth trying if it looks good to you!), but it just isn't one I'll be craving/making again. THANKS for the recipe!

Copycat Panera® Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
This was good, but it didn't knock my socks off. I found I needed to add 2 more cups of chicken stock to cover the veggies (I didn't measure the broccoli), but the texture was still nice and thick once I added the cheese. It was just blander then I was expecting; I added a tsp or two of garlic salt and a healthy dash of crushed red pepper to add a bit more depth. I think I agree w/the other reviewer from today who prefers another broccoli cheese soup recipe from this site. THANKS for the recipe!

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
Delicious! I added the marinade to the salmon (frozen, as our grocery store was out of fresh) in the morning before work and it remained there for the next 9 hours. I subbed EVOO for peanut oil and dried minced onion for the green onion. Mr. LTH isn't always a fan of grilling new things, so I wrapped them in foil to make life easier for him and this worked very well. I think he grilled them in the foil for about 10 minutes and they were restaurant quality. I topped each filet w/mango salsa and served with "Grilled Broccoli-My Kids Beg For It" and "Healthier Oven Roasted Potatoes" from this site for an excellent meal. THANKS for the recipe!

Delicious Spinach Manicotti

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
I wanted to love these, but I found them to be surprisingly bland (even with increasing the Italian seasoning, subbing (increased) garlic bread seasoning AND garlic salt (out of garlic powder), and adding crushed red pepper). I also added some fresh mozz to the mix because I had some in need of use. I forewent broiling and simply removed the foil and added the mozz for the final 10 minutes of baking. My box of manicotti held 14 and this filled all w/1/2C or so leftover. I'd have rated these a 3, myself, but Mr. LTH really enjoyed them, hence the "4". If I make this again, I'll def up the filling seasonings. THANKS for the recipe.

Best Ever Beef Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
This was a great all purpose marinade. I used it for kebobs I'd cut from a lowly chuck roast and let them marinate all day before Mr. LTH grilled them to perfection. Great flavor, tender, and really made a chuck roast pop w/out having to slow cook it. THANKS for the recipe! The only changes I made were to 1/2 the recipe and replaced dijon w/yellow, per personal preference.

New Potatoes with Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
These were good. I'd built them up a little more in my head w/the roasted garlic vinaigrette, but they were just good. I used elephant garlic as it's what our grocery store had (and I assumed it'd have a stronger garlic flavor, actually) and yellow mustard per personal preference. I also cubed my potatoes for a shorter bake time. If I made these again, I think I'd use butter in place of oil and dry mustard in the vinaigrette. These are definitely worth trying and tweaking to your own personal tastes. THANKS for the recipe!

Creamy Potato and Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
This was easy enough to throw together after working late AND it tasted good, too. The texture through me off a bit, with the corn "skins?". I think I'd puree and THEN add the corn. I used beef stock in place of beef base and water. This would be easily customizable for personal taste, too. The red pepper added a nice heat. THANKS for the recipe!

Italian Sausage Frittata

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
I was not a fan, but Mr. LTH like it, so 4 stars it is (I'm not a fan of sausage). Time got away from me, so I used steamable veggies (nuked for just 3 min) and pre browned ground sausage and tossed everything with beaten eggs in a pie pan and left them in the frig overnight for breakfast. The next morning, I baked for about 40 minutes at 350. The sausage and basil were overwhelming to me (fresh basil would be better), but I did like getting veggies at breakfast. THANKS for the recipe!
