Thai Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I'm not a Thai expert but I think this recipe turned out great. I only made a couple of modifications...I used soy sauce in place of the fish sauce as it's not something I keep around. I also didn't have chili oil so I used a pinch of red pepper flakes. I used chicken tenders and didn't skewer them...mine marinated for about 2 days (I trim meat and put it in marinade when I get home from the store and then freeze or refrigerate). I cooked my under the broiler for about 4 minutes per side. Very moist and tender and full of flavor. I didn't use the garnishes but there is cilantro in the peanut sauce I made. "The Best Thai Peanut Sauce"...see my reviews for notes on modifications I used for that recipe.

Smoky Four Cheese Macaroni Bake

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
This recipe was only ok for me, but my husband loved it so it got 4 stars. I really liked the addition of the liquid smoke. The texture left a little to be desired for me, a little too thick. Worth a shot if you are looking for something a little different.

Mediterranean Chickpea Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Delish!! The only alteration I made was to use fresh basil instead of cilantro. I used reduced fat feta to make it even healthier. Will make again and again!

Emily's Chipotle Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I was really hoping this would be fantastic, but it left something to be desired for me. I love the smokiness of the chipotle peppers, but I found the overall taste to be flat. It lacked the richness I was looking for. My hunt for the perfect chili continues... Edited to Add: I found that adding a touch of butter gives this chili enough of a boost to bump it to 4 stars.

Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Really yummy and filling! I did modify slightly by making a pesto mayonnaise (equal parts pesto and mayo), and I sliced a sweet onion and roasted it with the eggplant. Also used jarred roasted red peppers for convenience. After reading other reviews I was sure to dry all the vegetables before layering in the sandwich and it turned out great. I wasn't thrilled with the texture of the eggplant so I might leave it out next time. Overall flavor was delicious.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Perfection

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
Great chicken, lots of flavor! I altered orginal recipe slightly for simplicity. I'm not a big fan of spinach so I used half a package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry. Instead of making my own breadcrumbs I used Panko (gives a nice texture), mixed with the Parmesan and thyme. I mixed in 1 tablespoon of melted butter to the breadcrumbs to increase toasting. I used baby bella mushrooms and just rough chopped them and cooked with the green onions until both were tender, I added the garlic after removing the pan from the heat so it didn't become bitter. I butterflied the chicken breasts and pounded them thin; stuffed with a large scoop of the filling and folded over...no need to roll the chicken and toothpick. Restaurant quality!!

Caribbean Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
This is an awesome, flavorful and moist burger! I did make a couple of changes...I used fresh breadcrumbs instead of dry, I used cilantro in place of the parsley, I added a bit of olive oil to the meat mixture and I used 2 tablespoons of Jerk Seasoning (I use Pampered Chef Jamaican Jerk Seasoning). These are great served on a bun with sliced mango and red onion or as patties topped with avacado mango salsa!!

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
This is my "go-to" pasta salad recipe...everyone loves it! I usually fill it with the asiago cheese, pepperoni, olives and roasted red peppers. Always prepare the dressing as written. Delicious!!

Thai Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
Yummy!! I only made a couple of changes to the original recipe. First of all I halved the recipe. I used ground turkey instead of the chicken because that's what I keep on hand. I used fresh bread crumbs instead of the panko (when I think panko I think crunchy coating, not burger filler). I didn't use quite enough though (1 slice), my burgers didn't hold together very well. I used 2 garlic cloves, stuck with 2 tbsp each of green onions and parsley and used 1 tablespoon thai chili sauce in place of the hot sauce. All other ingredients were halved. Lots of great flavor, and not really spicy. I was concerned about using all mayo for the sauce and didn't have any sour cream so I used 3 parts mayo to 1 part coconut milk and added the mint and coconut as directed. It turned out great! I pan fried about 6 minutes per side over med-high heat. Great recipe, thanks!!

Southwest Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
Great Burgers!! I used ground turkey instead of the sausage, and I didn't have any chili powder so I used Pampered Chef Southwestern Seasoning (about 1 tablespoon), also increased the cumin a little. Added 1 can of chopped green chilis and a handful of fresh breadcrumbs. The burgers wouldn't have held up to the grill but cooked up nicely in a pan on the stovetop in about 5-6 minutes per side. They didn't have sliced smoked cheddar at my grocery store so I used Chipotle Cheddar (Sargento brand), and it was nice and smoky and added extra bite. No extra condiments needed!!

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Tastes good, maybe a touch too sweet. Takes practice, that's for sure. I would recommend a candy thermometer (and checking to see that it's accurate). I over boiled mine and it's a hard and powdery mess but the fault lies with me, not the recipe. Also, make sure you use a saucepan that's LARGER than 2 quarts! It expands a ton when boiling!!

Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Seasoning

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
My husband the meatloaf hater even liked this recipe! A glaze for the top is a nice touch.

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Awesome and so easy! I used a couple of tablespoons of the sauce when making the mousse to make it a little more raspberry flavored. I served mine in wonton cups I had brushed with butter, sprinkled with sugar and baked in mini-muffin tins until golden brown. I garnished with a drizzle of the sauce and shaved white chocolate. They were a hit at our tea party.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
A yummy, fresh tomato-basil sauce. The chunky texture was nice. I did double the sauce so 2 cans of tomatoes, 1 cup fat free half-and-half, 1 tbsp basil, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tbsp sugar, s & p to taste, spoonful of heart healthy "butter" spread. I stirred in 1 box of whole wheat penne that was just shy of al dente so that soaked up any extra liquid. Topped with a little fresh basil. Yummy and healthy!

Indian Tandoori Chicken

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
I thought this recipe was pretty good, my husband adored it! I used tandoori masala instead of garam masala and didn't use food coloring but otherwise I made it as listed. I would like the marinade to be a little smoother, will try grating ingredients next time or use the food processor.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
My husband adored this recipe! I thought it was pretty good myself, but a little sweet for my taste. Might try cutting down the amount of sugar next time. Overall great flavor!

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
I've never had authentic Indian Butter Chicken, but this is so yummy! I couldn't find tandoori masala so I made my own. For the recipe, check out my profile. Didn't alter anything in the recipe, perfect as it. Beware though, it's addictive!!

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I used the recipe as a base and made several additions to our family's tastes. In addition to the ingredients listed I added 1 diced onion, 3 cloves garlic, basil and oregano to meat when browning. I added an undrained can of italian stewed tomatoes and a pinch of red pepper flakes. I mixed the noodles with the meat sauce. To the cheese mixture I added 1 clove garlic, parsley, minced green onions, pepper and a handful of grated parmesan. I layered the pasta/sauce on bottom and spread the cheese mixture over the top. I then topped with mozzarella, provolone and additional parmesan to continue the italian theme. A creamy, hearty dish. Rich and filling. My entire family loved it including my 3 year old twins and 1 year old. Made enough for our family of 5 with leftovers.

Avocado Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
This is AMAZING!! I used jalapeno instead of the habanero for a little less spice. I served it with Caribbean Turkey Burgers...also great over any jerk seasoned meat. Thanks for the great recipe!

Baked Falafel

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
Perfect! I made them as written except I doubled the recipe and skipped the stove-top step. I scooped them out onto a lightly oiled baking pan and baked them about 15 minutes. They held together beautifully and taste wonderful on a warm pita. Thanks for sharing!
