Marinated Pork Tenderloin - Low Carb

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
My preference was 1/4 teaspoon of 5 Spice powder instead of the cinnamon, but this was an awesome recipe. The changes I made (omitting onion and adding minced garlic instead of garlic powder) were not because it wasn't delicious as written, but simply because my family likes these things. It earned a full 5 stars just as it is!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
This recipe is a 5-star as is, but being the adventurer that I am, I made adjustments that suited my family's tastes. I use chicken tenders--no pounding, but I remove the ligament. Flour and Italian Seasoning, salt & pepper in a plastic bag to make both prep and cleanup easier. When the chicken was lightly browned, I removed it to a dish and added 1 heaping Tbl minced garlic to the pan, gave it a quick 30-sec saute, then added 1 cup of chicken broth, then the sherry and Marsala wine. I've made it both with and without mushrooms. Either way, it has a restaurant-quality flavor and it's a hit with family and friends. Thanks for sharing this one!

Shrimp Scampi with Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
Made it exactly as directed, and I found it far too lemony for my liking. I prefer scampi with more of a butter-garlic taste, like my old recipe has. My daughter forced herself to eat it, I think because of the effort I put into it, but it's not something I would recommend, nor will I make it again. Sorry, but it's nowhere near a 5-star flavor.

Chicken Piccata with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
The flavor of this dish was fantastic, but am I the only one who found it way too salty?? It's quick and easy to prepare, elegant enough for company, inexpensive and simple enough for a weeknight family meal... but the saltiness made it nearly inedible. It's a good thing I didn't add the liquids from the artichoke hearts and the capers, or it would have been a total loss. I will make it again, but with a number of adjustments.

N'Awlins Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
I didn't care for this recipe. I'm from South Louisiana as well, but these aren't like any stuffed peppers I've ever had. The flavor was an odd mix, like the cook couldn't decide whether to make stuffed peppers or gumbo. I won't bother to change it... I'll just start over.

Hoisin Pork Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Fantastic!! Whole family loved this; will definitely be making it regularly. The only changes I made were to add a small amount of chicken broth to loosen the sauce, and I subbed 1 tsp of chilli pepper paste for the cayenne pepper. My family likes the baby corn so I added a can of that as well. It was fine without any changes and worthy of the whole 5 stars as is. Will try it with chicken breast next time.

Sweet and Sour Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I was blown away by the taste of these four simple ingredients! I sliced and stir-fried the pork because my broiler is iffy, and taking the advice of other reviewers, I cooked some rice to go with the dish. Amazing! This will be among my regulars from here on.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
This recipe is exactly what I've been looking for! Like another reviewer did, I added bacon because I love bacon with squash. I sauteed the onion in the drippings, then lightly sauteed the squash before adding water. Instead of using more butter for the top, I sprayed it with butter-flavor Pam. My picky teenage daughter ate a huge serving. THAT is worth five stars in itself! I'd give it ten stars if I could. Great recipe!!

Spanish Rice with Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
I'm sure it was good as written, but knowing my family's tastes I made adjustments. I added 1/4 tsp each of cumin, black pepper and saffron, and 1 tbl minced garlic, used canned tomatoes and sliced jalapenos, added one beef bouillion cube, and 2 small bay leaves. It was great. I couldn't give it 5 stars because it needed help even as written, but was a good enough starter recipe. With a few adjustments, it turned out fantastic, definitely rating a good solid 4.

Emily's Famous Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
This is the best chili recipe I've found in 35 years of searching! I doubled the garlic, omitted the chipotle peppers (it was quite hot enough!) and the flour, as I prefer my chili a bit less thick. I had dried pinto beans on hand, so I cooked them separately, unseasoned, and added them with the liquid, plus one can of kidney beans without liquid (yucky canned taste). The result was a home run! I served it with grated sharp cheddar, sour cream, and tortilla chips.

Man Loaf (Variation of the Meatloaf)

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
This artery-clogger is worth the time, effort, and adverse effects on your health. A far departure from the drab, traditional meatloaf, the manloaf has everything a man, or my teenage daughter, would love in a meal, with none of the fussy extras. I love the added kick of jalapenos, but in fact the recipe needs no improvement.

Robust Garlic Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
As delicious as this recipe sounded, it just didn't work for me. Like many reviewers, I halved the butter, as a whole cup would have been too much. The idea was a good one, and certainly placing the butter mixture beneath the skin helped, but all the flavor was on the surface and none on the deeper meat. Overall, another bland bird.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I'd give it a higher rating for flavor, but the gooey crust was a definite turnoff. My husband and kids barely touched it after I spent so much time and effort making this dish. Nice try, but I'd have to go with either fried and crispy, or baked in sauce... not both.

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Very easy and delicious! And without the usual 10-day wait, which is an added bonus. This time, I halved the sugar and replaced it with Splenda, since hubby is diabetic and I'm borderline. I'm sure going all Splenda would be fine too. Used cider vinegar because I prefer the taste of it to white. No green peppers this time--only because I didn't have room for anything more in the jars!!

Hot and Sour Chinese Eggplant

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
This was a good eggplant dish, although I found the vinegar flavor a bit overwhelming. In doubling the sauce, as recommended by several reviewers, I had to dilute the vinegar with more soy sauce. I used brown sugar instead of white, and since I was unable to find chili oil, used chili paste with a bit of red pepper flakes. Not nearly as spicy as I'd hoped for, but I'll adjust it next time. (We like spicy!) But to compare this to P.F. Chang's eggplant dish, as some reviewers did--well, that's quite a stretch. Also, I didn't let the eggplant sit in water for 30 minutes. I simply salted them and let them sit in a colander in the sink for that time, to remove excess water and bitterness.

Chicken Enchiladas with Creamy Green Chile Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
This recipe was a home run!! The only real change I made was in the assembly. Instead of rolling them individually, I layered 6 softened tortillas, then the chicken, cheese, and remaining tortillas. I poured the sauce over it and sprinkled with chopped red onion instead of putting the onion inside the mix. This recipe is by far the best chicken enchilada recipe I have EVER tasted. Better than my favorite Mexican restaurant. It's that good!

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
These are amazing! I made a few minor changes to suit my family's tastes, but overall this is a winner. (Doubled up on the garlic, used 1 tsp ginger puree, and added a lot more chili paste for added kick.) And I took one review's advice and baked them in the sauce. Also, I removed the tips but didn't split the sections. They were very moist and tender and the tops were crispy. This is a new family favorite!
