Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
I'm very impressed. My wife is allergic to most fish, so I don't get it often. I made a few adjustments, some out of necessity. I followed other reviews and added old bay directly on the fish, and garlic in the sauce. I also used dried lemon peel in lieu of the juice, and subbed celery seed for celery salt. When it came time to get the parm, I realized I had none. So I finely shredded some whole milk mozzarella, and it worked out just fine. I will try this again with the mozz, parm, romano and possibly a little asiago. Thanks!

Crawfish Bisque

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Outstanding. Hadn't eaten crawdad bisque since my dad died....he used to fix it when we were kids. Had to buy frozen precooked crawfish, it's too early in the year to catch them here (but ramps are up :). Only thing I changed was to half the onion, used stock from a gumbo, and adjusted seasoning to taste. Definitely a keeper, can't wait to try it with fresh crawdads.

The World's Greatest Crab Recipe

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Very good, but not good enough to facilitate the arrogant headline, nor the description. Added several things, to suit my own tastes. Lemon juice, Old Bay, Cayenne pepper and sea salt/fresh ground black pepper. Served with Porterhouses(with my own secret marinade), roasted red potatoes, garlic buttered asparagus and roasted vidalia onions, everything prepared on the grill. The only substitute I would make is to exchange the vidalias for fresh ramps, but they're not yet growing in the backyard. Soon enough! the grill doesn't infuse the seasoned flavor as it does in the stewpot....

Southern Coleslaw

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Far beyond the scope of grocery store coleslaw. I wanted this to go with a pork BBQ, and it fits the bill perfectly with my favorite barbeque sauce. Definitely different, though I agree with the review that tells to add celery seed. I added carrots and a little minced red onion to the mix as well.

Philippine-Made Sugar Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
Top Notch! A friend's wife sent sugar cookies to my work, and left me with a hankering for more. I did not have any chocolate, so after researching, I substituted a mixture of cocoa powder, sugar and shortening. I can honestly say that for a 24 year old guy, it's easy to make these cookies, and they're very enjoyable.

Ground Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Quick, easy, very good. I combined certain advice with my own touches to make this an excellent recipe. A little worchestershire in the broth before you mix, a small squirt of spicy brown mustard(had none dry), a little tobasco(can't get enough) and some dried parsley while the sauce is simmering with the hamburger. I will be excited to try this recipe as proper beef stroganoff. BTW, added quite a bit of parm blend (w/asiago and romano), as my daughter is quite fond of cheese. Not gourmet, but excellent for quick & easy

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Excellent. I prepared this to accompany Barbequed Pork ribs, Mashed Potatoes and Buttermilk Biscuits. If you allow the garlic to cook with the melted butter in the cast iron(in my case), it melds with the butter to provide a mild, almost sweet garlic flavor that goes very well with a bold main dish, such as ribs. also, do not forget to trim and peel(if necessary) the asparagus, to prevent it from being tough at one end.

Shrimp Scampi IV

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
in a word: outstanding. with a little lemon peel + juice, and parmesan(as directed by reviewers) this recipe is superb. I halved the portions(except garlic), as i was only feeding myself, and served over orzo rice.

Creamed Chipped Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
This recipe was quite good, actually, with ham in place of the beef. On a morning that the fridge was running low, I prepared this with deli ham(chopped), and served it over fried potatoes with stewed apples on the side. Definitely use 3tbs flour and 2c milk as directed by one of the other reviews. interesting twist on SOS!
