Dulce de Leche Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
I love all the ingredients in this individually, and was sure based on the reviews putting them together would be fantastic, but it was just okay. Not bad, but not anything to write home about. I'd rather just dip the apples in the dulce de leche and cream cheese mixture than go to the trouble of grilling the sandwich. But even then, the mixture wasn't that great. The cream cheese added nothing to the dulce de leche, and the dulce took the bite out of the cream cheese.

Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
This is the first crab cake recipe I ever tried, and I'm not going to try any others. I was attracted to it because I have to eat gluten-free, and I figured the small amount of filler would make it easier to adapt. And I was right. I use gluten-free corn-flake crumbs, because I always keep them on hand, but with such little filler, I think rice crumbs or any GF cracker or bread crumb would work. After making this many times, I double the Old Bay, which gives it a little more traditional flavor, but still doesn't overpower the wonderful lemon and basil flavor. I also add a little diced shallot. As far as the sauce, I love it, and it goes wonderfully with the crab cakes. I advise you to try it so you don't miss out. However, I don't make the sauce as directed because of the raw egg. I add the lime juice and spices to a half-half mixture of mayonnaise and sour cream. Not only is it safer, but faster and easier.

Shepherd's Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
This makes a fantastic shepherd's pie, though I agree that using all that bouillon would make it way too salty. But I always cook with broth from the carton, and using 1 cup of broth instead of the water, and no bouillon cubes is perfect. With the broth, you can use all the salt and steak seasoning the recipe calls for, and it is seasoned just right. I also always use instant mashed potatoes. This makes the recipe a lot quicker and easier. It's especially tasty with garlic potatoes, and sometimes I will add Romano cheese to the garlic potatoes, an idea I got from another shepherd's pie recipe on this site.

Simple But Awesome Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
I made this because I couldn't get to the store, and I had all the ingredients on hand. Also, I was curious about the cooking method. I followed the advice to cut down on the oil and butter. Overall, it was a pretty good quick and easy meal, but nothing spectacular. The chops came out pretty moist and tender, so that was a plus. I think the ingredients and method might actually work better on fish, so I may try that. I also think it's versatile in that you can change up the spice rub, so I may play with that too.

Ham and Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
This rates closer to 3 1/2 stars. This was definitely one of the easier and tastier ham casseroles I've tried on this site so far. I used just 12 oz. of gluten-free pasta because that was all my package contained. Based on reviews, I bought 2 jars of Alfredo sauce, but because I had less pasta, I used 1 1/2 jars. In the skillet, it looked like plenty, but after coming out of the oven, it was a tad dry. Next time, I would add more broccoli and use 2 whole jars. IMHO it was a little bland IMHO, but that may be my Alfredo sauce choice though. I wanted to get the refrigerated kind, but my store didn't have it. Overall an easy and tasty way to use up ham leftovers that I would use again when I have ham leftovers.

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I can't begin to tell you how pleased I was to discover this recipe. I was on the hunt for a gluten-free coconut shrimp. I found this and Alton Brown's. The two are very similar, except Alton's has less cayenne and adds white pepper, and is supposed to be fried. I used Alton's spices, but baked according to this recipe's directions. It was so easy, and delicious. My husband said it was some of the best coconut shrimp he's ever had. I made the orange marmalade sauce to go with it, and it tasted great. (1/2 cup orange marmalade, 2tsp. coarse ground mustard, and 1tsp. horseradish) I served it with Avocado Mandarin Salad on this site, which complemented the shrimp nicely.

Spicy Coconut and Lime Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
I wasn't so sure about this recipe after putting the marinade together, as it didn't look very appetizing,but the flavors really blended together and made a good shrimp. It was spicy, but not too spicy. The coconut flavor wasn't very strong though. I may try adding coconut milk like other reviewers did next time.

Mojo Grilling Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I hate to be the first naysayer, but I really didn't like this. IMHO Goya's Mojo Criollo marinade tastes much better, without all the trouble. I followed the recipe exactly. While I like how the freshness of the fruit juices came through, the balance of spices is off. I'm not sure which ones, maybe the cilantro? I gave 2 stars for the freshness factor, and because my husband said he liked it, but I won't make it again.

Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Garlic, Lemon and Dill

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
I've only made salmon a couple of times before, but this time was by far, the best. Using the cedar plank makes the fish so moist, it makes anyone a culinary expert. I can't wait to try other plank recipes, and try cooking my favorite salmon recipe on the cedar plank. I did cut the salt in half based on other reviews, and thought it was the perfect amount. Also, I used the "fresh" dill in the tube, which tasted great, but because it is packed in oil, I will cut down on the olive oil a tad in the future.

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
Grilled shrimp for the first time, and we tried this and "Marinated Grilled Shrimp" on this site. Hubby liked this one, but prefered the other one. However, this was hands down my favorite. It had great flavor and I thought all the flavors were proportioned perfectly. I followed the recipe exactly using original Grey Poupon, and I did not find it too lemony, or too basil-ly, or too mustardy as many other review. And the amount of oil/butter was just right also. I wouldn't change a thing.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
Hubby and I grilled shrimp for the first time. We decided to try this and the Basil Shrimp recipe also on this site. This was my husband's favorite, while I preferred the Basil Shrimp. But I agree this was very good. I definitely would cut down on the oil next time. These shrimp were a little greasier than the other recipe. And I think I want to try doubling the spices as another reviewer suggested.

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
This tasted great and had the consistency I like in quiche. I made it without a crust, and I used 3/4 cup whipping cream and 3/4 cup 1% milk, but otherwise made as directed. My only beef is it took a lot longer than 40 minutes to cook. Mine took 1 hour 10 minutes at 325 degrees.

Amazing Gluten-free Layer Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
**FYI GLUTEN FREE BUTTERSCOTH CHIPS-In addition to Kroger and Hershey's as mentioned in a previous review, Publix brand is also gluten-free. They have a great printable list on their website of all their storebrand items that are gluten-free. ** These came out great. I sorta combined this recipe with the Magic layer bar from Eagle recipe. I made a crust from Scharr GF shortbread cookies, and reduced the coconut to 1 1/3 cups. I kept everything else the same as this recipe. A great gluten-free dessert everyone will enjoy.

Mother's Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Very good recipe for using up leftover ham. The carrots can be exchanged for any veggie on hand. I actually thought there was a little too much sauce, and I love sauce, AND used a full 1/4 cup onions and peppers, and about 3 cups potatoes so I could use them all up. I substituted tapioca for the flour to make it gluten-free, so that might be part of the sauce issue. Next time, I would use less.

Silver's Savory Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I was extremely pleased with this casserole. I have to eat gluten-free, so I am always on the lookout for casseroles that don't use condensed soup. I easily substituted tapioca flour and gluten free pasta. It is more flavorable than you would think. I am glad I resisted the urge to add garlic as DH and I loved it as. (and he usually loves lots of spice.)

Easy Shepherd's Pie with Garlic Romano Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
The rosemary was a little too prominant for my taste, and it was a little dry. A gravy might solve both those problems. But it got decent reviews from the family, and the romano potatoes were delicious, even though I used boxed garlic mashed potatoes as a shortcut, so it is worth playing with. I may try Shepherd's Pie V with the romano poatoes.

Jackie's Spinach and Apple Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I loved the combo of cheddar cheese and apple with the spinach. I used an extra sharp cheese for extra flavor. The dressing sounded a bit bland to me, so I used a bottle Sweet Vidalia dressing instead. DH loved it.
