Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
Great recipe! Just made some minor adjustments, but I'm sure it would have been great the way it is written as well. We used less bacon (5 Slices) - and it still had that smokey salty flavor. Also used olive oil mayo to health it up a little! I had a mix of roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds at home already - so just used that mix in recipe - seemed to work well in recipe. Recipe was devoured by family of 3 in two days - and even 10 year old asked for seconds. We consider that a success! Thanks for sharing!

Indonesian Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng)

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
This was very good. I had to use regular light soy sauce, didn't have the sweet. I also added a little fish sauce since I have seen other recipes that did, and our family is a fan of it. Rest of the recipe I followed exact and everyone enjoyed it. Thnx.

Linguine with Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
This was pretty good, very healthy. I'd likely add more of the mushrooms next time, or even a little braise beef of some sort. Served it as a meal with a dinner salad and everyone did get their fill.

Cuban Black Beans I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Oh MY! These Cuban beans are a HIT at our house! Not only are they cheap and fairly easy to make - everyone gobbled them up! I made this exactly by the recipe.. We had so much leftover (if after my hubsand gobbled up 3 servings at dinner!) we used them to make bean burritos, and refried them to serve with huevos rancheros! They are absolutely delicious - definitly will be making these again!!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

Greek Chicken Pitas

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
I went by this recipe just about as is, only thing I changed was to turn the crock pot to low for the 6 hours instead of high - as others had suggested.The only thing good about this meal was the cucumber yogurt and the pitas. When I got home from work the edges of the chicken were not only brown, but dry and cracking.. we were hungry so decided to salvage what we could. The remaining chicken had a dry consistency and and an odd texture. On top of the terrible texture of the chicken, the spices used in the mixture did don't fare well with the cucumber sauce. It was like drinking a glass of koolaid and then a glass of milk... didn't work at all. I am very disappointed in this recipe, without making major adjustments I just don't feel I'd ever make this again. :(

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
This is the second time I have made this recipe. Followed as is (although this time I didn't have yukons on hand and had to sue red potatos). Both time equaled the same results - DELICIOUS! It turns out to be a creamy, filling soup, with lots of subtle flavors that make it a perfect chilly afternoon dish. I paired it with some homemade cheddar biscuits (liek red lobsters makes). Perfect as a meal all by itself!

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
This was very good, our supermarket was out of clams, so had to use mussels as a replacement, but nevertheless the sauce and cooking method worked well for those shellfish as well. thanks for sharing this recipe.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
This was terrific. I made it as is. Would be great for the kids too as a dipping sauce for chicken nuggets. My 6 year old couldn't get enough of this dressing. Thanks for sharing :)

Awesome Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I made quiet a few adjustments, adding sausage, more egg, a bit of sesame oil, and some other things... and it was delicious... But truly I think it would have been just as good without all my changes too! Thanks for sharing! edit: just wanted to add that I again made these eggs rolls, and some crab rangoon for a get together this weekend, and everyone RAVED about these egg rolls, said my husband and I should go into business making these and selling them! Someone else said that they could not go back to a chinese restaurant and eat egg rolls after having ours!! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!! Made my night getting so many compliments about our food! :)

Avocado and Tuna Tapas

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I ended up putting this atop some crusty bread and it was delish!! It was like a light sandwich - and was filling enough to pass as dinner. My husband and 6 year old fought over the last few bites! Very good - thanks for sharing!

Central American Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
These were very good. I reduced potatoes a bit - but otherwise this was really tasty. Not the best I've had - but pretty darn good. I'd make it again :)

Cheesy Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This was very good. I did end up adding some extra milk towards the end. I gave it 4 stars only because I didn't like the topping much - and my husband seemed to inhale the bread crums and startign coughing - lol - whops! I might add some butter or cheese over top of it next time, so that it doens't remain so powdery on top. Otherwise flavors were delish! Thanks for sharing!

Frogmore Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Totally Tasty! I cut down the recipe to serve my husband, me and our 5 year old boy. Everyone loved it! 5 year old thought sausage was too spicy - but we expected that - he gobbled up everything else - and thought it was an awesome dinner cuz he could use his hands! Mu hubby and I also agreed it was very tasty - just like the shrimp boils my dad does on special occassions! Thanks for sharing!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This was super tasty! I have tried many different ways to cook/grill salmon.. and have to say this is the best to date. My husband - who usually doesn't like salmon, gobbled it up - as did my five year old and of course me! It was sweet.. but not too sweet.. and had a great crust over the very edges of the fish.. and to top it off the color after you cook it makes it LOOK as amazing as it tasted.. I made no changes to the recipe. thanks for sharing it! It's a new family favorite :)

Turkey Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
These taste like pinwheels I've had at a lot of parties. Simple and tasty. Great as a light lunch or snack. My five year old, thought they were a little spicy, even without the onions (I'm guessing he tasted teh garlic)... but he did eat half of one anyhow - so I don't think it bothered him too much. I gave four stars because it wasn't very unique - but it was very tasty.
