Chicken and Red Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
This was really good - a keeper that I'll make again. I did use a rotisserie chicken and that was the perfect amount. I used a can of mild enchilada sauce and added some chicken broth to that as well as chopping up a couple chipotle chiles in adobo sauce and adding to the sauce and onions. Using a 9x13 pan, I got 10 enchiladas. If you use a larger lasagna pan, you could get 12. I also combined the pepper jack cheese and co-jack for a little more flavor. To top it off, I used chopped cilantro and chopped green onions.

Raspberry Almond Coffeecake

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
This was the first time for this recipe for me and it won't be the last! It has great flavor. I doubled the recipe and used 4 c. of fresh raspberries. I added 1/4 c. of milk and used 1 t. vanilla and 1 t. almond in the cake batter. Instead of sour cream, I used plain vanilla yogurt. I toasted pecans and put those on the top. It was baked in a 9 inch springform pan which was just a perfect size. It needed more than 40 minutes with the extra raspberries so I added almost 10 more minutes of baking time. I did glaze the top since it's a very small amount of glaze and served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was a hit!

Roasted Vidalia Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
These were SO good! I put mine in foil on the grill and roasted them for 45 minutes - that was just right. I also added minced garlic to each one and put some Baby Swiss cheese on after they were grilled. A perfect side dish to the country style pork ribs we had!

Caribbean Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
WOW! This is a GREAT salad! I followed the recipe pretty much as written but did add some lime juice and minced garlic to the salsa and put more lime juice in the dressing as well. I used a bit more jalapeno and more cilantro too. The flavors and texture combination is just perfect. I will make this again!

Slow Cooker Carolina BBQ

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
This Yankee girl LOVES this recipe! I was only acquainted with Carolina BBQ a few years ago and really liked it. This recipe is perfect. It is very spicy which I like, but be careful if serving to a crowd - especially like people in Minnesota who seem to prefer things very bland. Put some of this on a yummy bun, add a little cole slaw and it's an immediate picnic. Thanks for submitting this recipe!

Roasted Beets with Feta

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Made this pretty much as listed. I "eyeballed" the dressing ingredients and used a bit more of everything. It was very tasty and pretty. Will definitely make again. (And will add a bit of minced garlic next time!) Update: I use garlic and onion in place of the shallots. I just made these for someone who said she didn't like beets and she went back for seconds! Definitely toast the walnuts and sprinkle them over the cheese before serving.

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
This was very good fried rice. It's a lot of work, just like all Oriental dishes are, in having to cut and chop things but it was worth it. I pretty much followed the hints given by 2tee on April 20, 2007. I only used ham and shrimp,used a red pepper instead of green, added bean sprouts and used edamame instead of peas. I always add more garlic than any recipe calls for and I did not use celery. I would say it needs more than 1/4c. soy sauce with all of that rice. I also used some oyster sauce and topped it with green onions before serving. Oh, I used 3 eggs too. Cooking them first and then setting them aside and cutting them in strips, works very well! The leftovers are great for lunch at work. Thanks for the recipe.

Nana's Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
This was one of the best stroganoff recipes I've ever tried. I just shared some leftovers with a coworker and she agreed. I did add some balsamic vinegar to the stock mixture and I added more than the called for beef stock as the roux was too thick without it. Very, very tasty!

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
This is a perfect way to do a rib roast. However, you have to plan your other dishes if you only have one oven. I rubbed the roast with olive oil and then the seasonings. Next time, I'll do the second segment of cooking for one hour. It was a bit too rare for me but otherwise, just delicious! I did add beef stock to the bottom of the pan before baking but it pretty much just evaporated.

Sensational Sirloin Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
This was just excellent! I doubled the marinade and remembered the 1/2 c. to save back for basting. I used fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder and salt. I also marinated the veggies in a sesame honey ginger dressing I had on hand. Used red and yellow peppers and did not blanch them. Replaced the mushrooms with zucchini as I made the Gourmet Mushroom Risotto as another user did (recipe on this site). I didn't use tomatoes because when you try to get those off a skewer when they are hot, it's messy. I'll definitely make these again.

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
This was a great marinade. I put everything together in the morning and marinated the steaks all day. I used Moose Drool Ale. The meat was really flavorful and tender. I may try zesting it up a bit next time.

Hot Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2013
Very tasty and quick to put together. I added garlic powder to the cream cheese mixture. I did not use green peppers and I did use turkey pepperoni mini's which I microwaved briefly to get any extra grease out. Also topped it with a bit more mozzarella. I will make this again.

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This is a FABULOUS hot weather meal! I halved the recipe. Used spicy V8 juice and used more than was called for. I used one pound of shrimp - added more cilantro, garlic onion, lime juice and hot pepper sauce than called for. I also added finely chopped peeled cucumbers which really add to the refreshing texture of this dish. I put in one avocado when I made it (and let it sit overnight) and then added another one when serving. Served it with a lime wedge, cilantro sprig and tortilla chips and fresh cantaloupe.

Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Very good flavorful soup. I used a ham bone and cooked everything together. Removed the bone and fat at the end of 2 hours. Used chicken stock in place of the water and also added carrots, more fresh garlic(didn't use the powder) and onions. I used fresh parsley too. Also added liquid smoke and 4 T. of cider vinegar at the end. I didn't add anymore ham as there was quite a bit on the bone and I also did not add 3 more cups of water - probably just added another cup of chicken stock.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
This is excellent! What a great winter soup that is flavorful, colorful and yummy! I did use 6 c. of beef broth and omitted the water. I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes with the juice. I didn't have tomato sauce but it was good without it. I also added more chopped basil on top of the parmesan when I served it. This is a keeper!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
This is a really good recipe but like others, I did make some changes. I did dredge the chicken in flour before I put it in the pan. Before I did the chicken, I browned one large onion in the oil and then removed it from the pan. I would recommend using more oil to brown the chicken if you dredge it in flour. I doubled the sauce and would triple it next time. I used more garlic and fresh ginger than it calls for. I cooked some frozen edamame and some frozen stir fry veggies and then tossed it all in with the onion to the cooked chicken. It is spicy so if you don't like it too hot, cut back on the sriracha.

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2012
This was fabulous and received rave reviews where I brought it. I followed the directions exactly and added one roma tomato and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Next time, I'm going to make it as a salsa and add a jalapeno or serrano pepper and chop the ingredients a little finer.

Chinese Chicken Salad II

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
I made this today and it was a great hot weather salad to have with leftover rotisserie chicken that I got at the grocery store earlier this week. I added about 1 T of sesame oil to the oil and also used 1/2 olive and 1/2 veg. oil (using the tablespoon of sesame oil to fill up the 1/2 c. I used rice wine vinegar. I added a large can of mandarin oranges and pea pods (cut in half). I used rice noodles instead of chow mein noodles. If I had ginger on hand, I would have grated some in the dressing. I think I'll leave the poppy seeds out next time. They really don't add much. This was a very nice salad!

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
This is a great risotto recipe! I do agree that the mozzarella is a little peculiar and I would probably not use it next time. I used 4 c. of chicken stock and 1 1/2 c. of white wine and it was just right. As others did, I also added some garlic. I also didn't have sun dried tomatoes but I did have a sun-dried tomato pesto sauce so I used that and it tastes wonderful. I didn't use much salt as there is salt in that sauce. I added grilled chopped chicken breast pieces for a perfect meal. I would definitely make this again. It would be a great side dish without the meat to accompany any grilled meat.
