Brown Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
Terrific and easy! While it does take longer than an hour to bake, it is well worth it. This will be in our rotation. I made the following changes- brown rice instead of white, 32oz of beef broth PLUS an extra cup of water, package of lipton's onion soup, sliced mushrooms, cream of mushroom. I sauteed red onion & garlic in evoo. We enjoy our food more flavorful, so I added paprika, herbs de provence, basil, kirkland's(costco) no salt seasoning mix, and a dash kosher salt & fresh ground black pepper. Next time I will nuts and maybe water chestnuts. I cooked it covered in my Pampered Chef covered baker for 1 hr @350 and 30 min @375. I think next time I will baked the dish @375, which I think reduce the time a bit.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Great recipe! I will make this one again. I felt the sauce needed some kick, so I added some heat and additional flavor. I added the following to the sauce mixture: oyster sauce, fish sauce, red pepper flakes, chili oil, rice vinegar, chinese five spice, sesane seeds, and sirachi and hoisin sauces. I did not add sugar, but used honey instead. I also added mushrooms and water chestnuts. I used flank steak and marinated in a honey teriyaki marinade (store bought- did not feel like making homemad). I felt the sauce was too watery, but that was probably due to the marinade, so next time I will make less sauce. In order to ensure the flour/sauce mixture was blended well I took a small amout of the sauce mixture in a separate bowl and added the flour to that mixture, then I added the mixture to the larger bowl. Overall, great recipe, and would have been 5 stars had the flavor been more flavorful.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Great recipe! New family favorite. I made a few changes based our family's taste. I shredded carrots, added red onion, jalepeno, and chopped garlic. I used ground mustard, but I might also add dijon mustard next time. I also added worchester sauce, red pepper flakes, and cumin. I used tomatoe sauce and bbq sauce instead of ketchup. I did not use sugar. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I vow to never use Manwich again.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
This was better than our local Chinese place. I did not plan ahead, so I had to cook my rice within a few hours of dinner. I knew I needed the rice to be cool, so I cooked with a bouillon cube (great suggestion) and I put it in the freezer to cool off. Worked great! I made the sesame pork tenderloin (allrecipes) and we had some left over. The only thing different I did than the recipe was to sautee scallion, chopped garlic, peas and carrots in sesame oil before adding the rice. We like food with a kick, so I added hot chili oil (yummy)-just a dash will do. I added the rice to sauteed items, and proceeded to stir fry and add sesame seeds, soy sauce, oyster sauce, ginger, and S& P. Oyster sauce and sesame oil are a MUST! We used jasmine rice, which is great for stir fry. I will add more veggies next time.

Sesame Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
This is a great recipe. I made a few changes though, and it turned out perfectly. I added fresh ginger, chinese five spice,and fresh garlic. I seasoned the tenderloin with s&p, chinese five spice, & sesame seeds BEFORE I added them to the marinade/glaze. I also used olive oil and sesame oil- just split between the two oil types. I started the tenderloin in the oven at 475 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. Be careful it may smoke a bit with all of the honey and sugar, but it is not burning the meat at all. Afterwars, I reduce the temp to 375 and cook for 30 to 40 minutes. AWESOME!! My family loved it!!

Christmas Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Best Christmas casserole I have ever tried. I love texture the hashbrowns give the casserole. In the past, I used crescent rolls and they always burned. I also double the eggs & add a jalepeno or two. I fry bacon and crumble in the mixture. I also adda pound of spicy sausage. It is only Christmas once a year:o) I mix a bit of cheese in the casserole while it is cooking, but then I add the rest to the top towards the end. This is a family tradition. I make it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. YUMMY!!!!

Award Winning Chili Con Carne

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Best Chili ever!! I used ground turkey versus beef, so I increased some of the spices to add more flavor. Just perfect. I served it with pan fried corn bread, which was so yummy.

Seared Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
PERFECT! I did not use the flour, and it was still perfect. The high cooking temp and the seasonings make it a bit crunchy on the outside. Lovely!
