Texas Style Chicken Tequila

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
Update to my previous review! Ok, I've done this dish now four times and it has to be in my top 3 chicken dishes I've prepared so far from this great website. It's sooooo tasty! To make things more interesting, I doubled the amount of tequila! Other than that, I followed the recipe as instructed and it turned out absolutely great. As a side-dish, I cooked the Mexican sour cream rice and it's a great combination...along with savory deviled eggs! An absolute winner of a combination and dish! Kudos to Brenda, the author of this great chicken recipe!

Asiago Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
WOW! Exceptional taste and colorful look to this stunning dish. This is by far the best pasta dish I've ever tasted! The proportion for each ingredient is perfect with the exception of the Asiago cheese: I doubled the amount of this exceptional Italian cheese; I strongly recommend the additional amount. Safe to say, the Asiago cheese mixture turned out fabulous. The bacon / onion mixture is absolutely phenomenal! I used crumbled bacon instead of bacon cooked in a skillet and I used rotini pasta instead of bow-tie pasta. May I suggest the addition of red pepper cut in julienne style in the Asiago cheese mixture along with finely chopped fresh mushrooms in the bacon / onion mixture. Whoever created this phenomenal pasta recipe is an absolute genius and deserves one heck of a trophy! I will definitely make this exceptional pasta dish again, especially for dinner parties.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
What a wonderful, tasty steak recipe! The marinade is one of the best on this website. I kept the marinated steak in the refrigerator for about 8 hours instead of 6 hours. Since I was using 1 inch thick steak tenderloin, I grilled the steak in the oven for 7 - 8 minutes on each side and it turned out medium to well done and did I say it was VERY tasty? Hats off to the author of the steak marinade.

Mashed Potatoes with Fried Mushroom, Bacon, and Onion

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
Excellent and very tasty potato recipe! I love the combination of fried onion, mushroom and bacon. I used crumbled bacon instead and fried it with the red onion and mushroom! Other than that, I followed the instructions and added the right amounts for each ingredient and it turned out great! I accompanied this tasty potato dish with Cajun deviled eggs, steamed broccoli covered with a three-cheese sauce and garlic-pepper tenderloin steak. It’s unfortunate the steak was too spicy for my girlfriend; otherwise, it was a great combination especially since we were drinking a great bottle of Malbec (Pascual Toso) from Argentina. Delicious! I will definitely make this great potato recipe again!

Apricot Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
This is a very tasty dish! After draining the carrots, I added all of the ingredients in the pot with the carrots in it. Instead of orange zest, I added orange peel and it turned out great. To keep the baby carrots warm, I put the pot on low to medium heat. I will make this dish again.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
This is a very delicious, colorful potato recipe! I made a couple of very minor alterations: 1. since I didn't have red potatoes, I just went with yellow potatoes and 2. I went with kernel corn from a can rather than frozen corn. Besides that, I followed the recipe as instructed and it turned out great. The next time I make this recipe, I may add crumbled bacon and extra jalapeno to make it spicier.

London Broil II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
Excellent! This is one of the best steak recipes I've had in a while! The ketchup mixture is very tasty. Since my bbq is covered with 2 feet of snow, I broiled the steak in the oven for about 5 minutes on each side and it turned out great. I will definitely follow this recipe again.

Pleasant Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Excellent! This is definitely one of the best tasting pork recipes I've prepared so far. Instead of pork chops, I used pork tenderloin sliced one inch in thickness. To make sure the pork was well cooked, I put it in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes rather than browning it in a skillet. Following this cooking procedure took far less time than browning the pork in a skillet and reducing the 'sauciness' of the onion-garlic mixture in an hour as indicated in the instructions. After the pork tenderloin was properly cooked in the oven, I poured the garlic-onion-sour cream mixture on top of the cooked pork tenderloin. The garlic-onion-sour cream mixture turned out very tasty! Next time , I may add finely chopped mushrooms to the garlic-onion mixture. I will definitely make this delicious pork recipe again. One final note: I was trying to prepare this meal for some time but wasn't able to. The old motto 'good things come to those who wait' fits this recipe! It's a definite winner, which, as mentioned, will definitely be prepared again by yours truly.

Amy's Spicy Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
This is a very good recipe! I followed the instructions as indicated with the exception of the black olives since I didn't have any. I replaced them with green olives. For those like me who like their food hot and spicy, this hits the spot. However, for those who like their food a bit milder tasting, I would suggest to skip the chili pepper in the black bean mixture. Next time, instead of using brown rice, I'll be using par-broiled rice. For some reason, brown rice doesn't appeal to my palate. Besides that, this recipe is quite good and I will definitely make it again.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
This is a very tasty potato dish. The idea of cooking the garlic in the oven is an excellent idea since it add tons of flavor to the mashed potatoes. I followed the recipe as indicated with the exception that I didn't add salt or pepper and it turned out very good. The idea of adding Parmesan cheese to the mashed potatoes is a very good one! I will definitely make this dish again.

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
Wow! What an exceptional steak recipe! Definitely one of the best steak recipes on allrecipes.com. The red wine / garlic sauce is absolutely stunning. I skipped the salt, sugar and shallots and added extra wine to make the sauce stronger in taste and added also extra brandy simply for maximum effect. Although the black peppercorn is an excellent ingredient, may I suggest capers as a possible replacement for those who don't like their steak too spicy. Safe to say, I will definitely make this stunning recipe again. Congratulations to the creator of this tasty dish!

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
This is an excellent, very tasty dish! Definitely one of the best pork dishes on this website. The Dijon Marsala sauce is simply amazing! However, I would not coat the pork tenderloin with Dijon mustard before browning the pork in a skillet; simply brown the pork tenderloin as is before putting it in the oven. Adding lemon pepper on top of the browned pork before inserting it in the oven might be an option. For the Dijon Marsala sauce, I would cut the amount of heavy cream by half since there was lots of sauce left. As I didn't have Marsala wine, I substituted it with sherry and it turned out absolutely great. Next time, I will included half a cup of chopped mushrooms to the Dijon Marsala sauce, which incidentally, compliments pork tenderloin very well. I do not see the Dijon Marsala sauce for chicken or steak; this sauce is made for pork only. I will definitely make this dish again!

Orange Rice Medley

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
Excellent, tasty, colorful rice dish! Rather than using long grain rice, I used par-broiled rice, which required extra chicken broth and orange juice - based on the amounts suggested for this recipe - to ensure it was properly cooked. Rather than using a white onion for this recipe, I will use green onions instead. I didn't have mandarin oranges and the orange flavor was still very good. I will definitely make this rice dish again.

Ginger Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Excellent recipe! Very tasty dish! The ginger mixture is a real winner! Next time, I will add a tiny bit more ginger to the mixture since I love the taste of ginger. I would suggest to marinade the steak for a couple of hours or even overnight with the ginger mixture. Pending on how well you want your steak done, the amount of time allocated for broiling it will definitely vary. If you want your steak well done, broil the steak for 7 - 8 minutes on each side. Safe to say, I will definitely make this dish again.

G-ma's Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Very good dish! However, I changed the way of cooking the rice since I was using par-broiled rice for this recipe. I boiled the rice before adding to the skillet to brown it for 1 minute. Adding cumin to the mix is a great idea; the rice turned out very tasty as a result. I will definitely try this recipe again.

Stuffed Chicken Valentino

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Very tasty dish. The Parmesan / chives mixture was excellent along with the addition of red roasted peppers as an ingredient. I made a couple of alterations:1. I did sprinkle one chicken breast with olive oil and salt & pepper but sprinkled the rest of the chicken breasts with lemon pepper spice on the other chicken breasts without the olive oil for comparison purposes. The lemon pepper topping tasted better. 2. Rather than broiling the chicken, I baked it at 375 degrees for 45 minutes and it turned out great. I will definitely make this dish again.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
Excellent, yet simple recipe. I've made this dish on a couple of occasions and it turned out great every time. Instead of filet mignon, I used top sirloin steak and it turned out very good. If you want your steak well done, it will take more than 4 minutes to cook the steak on each side. I will definitely make this dish again.

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Superb risotto! It's one of the best I've ever made! I made a couple of alterations including the addition of extra balsamic vinegar, a smaller amount of thyme and the addition of mushrooms (8 oz. of canned mushrooms without the juices) to the caramelized onions. However, I would suggest fresh mushrooms instead of canned mushrooms along with a few artichokes after the "caramelization" of the white onion and mushrooms as you add the butter with the chopped chicken to the risotto. I accompanied the risotto with the Mediterranean stuffed chicken from this website along with iceberg lettuce with feta cheese. I will definitely make this recipe again! It's a definite winner.

Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Excellent dish! The feta cheese / cream cheese mixture is VERY tasty! I made a couple of alterations: 1. rather than brushing the chicken with melted butter, I sprinkled lemon pepper spice on top of each chicken breast; 2. further, since I was using jumbo-sized chicken breasts, I baked the chicken uncovered in the oven for 40 minutes, rather than just 20 minutes to ensure the chicken was thoroughly cooked. This recipe goes very well with the roasted chicken risotto with caramelized onion recipe from this website along with iceberg lettuce with feta cheese!

Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
What a great tasty recipe! I added less olive oil than prescribed. However, I will not include the olive oil to the mixture the next time I'll be preparing this dish; personally, I don't believe there's any need for it to be part of the lemon juice / garlic mixture. At best, I would substantially reduce the amount of olive oil. My other suggestions include adding extra crumbled bacon and adding lemon pepper to the lemon juice / garlic mixture.
