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!

Man Loaf (Variation of the Meatloaf)

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
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.

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.
