Dave's Mocha Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
My 10 year old son says "so awesome, bestever chicken thing ever in the world". So there you have it. I did not think it was salty AT ALL, one reviewer mentioned cooking sherry was salty (I have no clue)...but I did use the Merlot I was drinking a few days prior (leftover!), threw in a tablespoon of minced garlic (We love garlic), and instant coffee granules. I cut breasts into nugget size pieces, served over rice. A mellow flavor...nothing harsh or overpowering, if you want something punchy, this is maybe not for you. But it's a good base to start with...then kick it up yourself

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
If you don't like spice, don't make something with "spicy" in the title!! Spice can be controlled by cutting back or not adding the last few spices!! **I needed this to go further, so I added an extra cup of rice and an extra cup + of broth. **I had a few cups of basmati rice and used this, I cooked in pan about 15 minutes, and oven cooked for only 30 minutes and IT WAS DONE! I added a little more moisture, because I added extra rice too...and it was moist and wonderful - maybe the lighter weight basmati rice was the key to not having to overcook it. **my hubby melted a little processed cheese that starts with a "V" and that was WONDERFUL - I could do without the extra calories however!

Curry Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
This was AWESOME! We got a lamb, so I was looking for recipes to make great lamb dishes. This is a definate keeper. It does have a stronger flavor, I am not gonna lie, but we loved it. I kicked up the curry a bit more (we love it), and skipped the orange peel (had none). My 9 year old loved it (the lamb), he used soy sauce over his rice. I also took part of the sauce and kicked it up with a vindeloo seasoning to add more heat...Yummy! Thanks.

Raspberry Kielbasa over Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
ALright, I will say the recipe does sound bizzare, but how soon do we forget the KEY ingredient in cocktail little smokies, or even cocktail meatballs is GRAPE JELLY. Why would this be any better/worse? Certainly it was WONDERFUL with the kielbasa. Be careful with the type of sausage you chose-(did not like with maple sausage), but with "normal" smoked kielbasa was great. I used two kinds, it was what I had. As we gobbled...it really reminded me of the little smokies served for appetizers...why not just throw out the grits and use this for your next appetizer?? I could take or leave grits...I'm a northerner, harder to find here anyway.

Asian Ginger Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
Made with less soy as others suggested (I liked it with half, but will try with all next time ...I like soy sauce) ...used blender.....kept fine in fridge (looked a little different once chilled)...but taste was fine. Taste of JAPAN for sure. And there was a comment about too much sweetness ....no way, it was a perfect blend...and each has their own taste buds...so try as written, then make as you desire.

Teriyaki Beef Kabobs with Pineapple

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This was a great recipe, but I wasn't sure what terriyaki sauce to use. A popular brand name "Kikko..." had a baste (thick) and a sauce (thin)....so I combined the two. I did not have time to marinate very long...last minute desicion to make...so I'M sure that NEXT TIME the marinating process will add to the wonderful flavor of this meat. If using wooded skewers...don't forget to soak them in water for awile, so they don't catch fire! Overall, everone loved it....all ages 8, 17, 19, 39, 43!!

Seattle Cream Cheese Dogs

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
to me cream cheese is the secret ingredient in ALOT of foods! This is no exception...we served with the saurkraut recipe from this site as others suggested (I have aways hated kraut) But actually I prefered the dogs with it! My family looked at the cream cheese on the dogs.....(it wasn't appealing)...but raved later...gotta get past the unusual to get to what's good! best with polish or spicier type sausages, tried on regular weiners...too boring.

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
I think this was a hard one to rate...I mean really...how tasty can healthy be?? The fact is these cookies have NO SUGAR and NO refined flour either!!! I never had dates before, not bad...added a few shakes of cinnamon, and did half granola and half rolled oats. Tasty and sweet enough for "healthy". BUT THIS IS MY DILEMA....recipe makes 36...I only got 19. SO I MADE TOO BIG, and this could be why some other reviewers thought they were chewy or gummy or gloppy. I personally did not mind the texture, they were not far off from granola bars (check on the sugar content in those babies). I don't think you can always replace oil with applesauce...but I will try the next time I make these.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Excellent. I add other fruits for more color, black berries were very pretty addition, could also try blueberries. Doesn't look as appealing as it really tastes - it is wonderful. In fact i actually just love the cinnimon chips as a snack WIHTOUT the fruit.

Slow Cooker Creamed Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
I agree that this was just okay. It was missing something. I was SOOOOO excited to try this recipe (i am a cream cheese nut- it goes in everything i make practically). It needs maybe a little bite to it, i was wondering if a handful of sharp cheddar might add to it. I am not wanting it spicy or anything. OH

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
excellent as usual! It was devoured by all! I haven't made for years since it seems so "overdone" wherever you go. Our personal preference is to skip the beans, and add taco meat.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
Totally awesome, what can I say! All ages loved it. It was not dry, and dished out like a hotdish, but who cares! With any recipe a good cook always tweaks it a bit, my tweaking was extra cheese, I used 16 OUNCES!!!! yum. ALOT easier than lasagne, and everyone thought these noodles were a unique change of pace. I used chip dip (had a container to get rid of)...and those who say the sour cream doesn't fit, have certainly different tastes... I thought it was perfect! And if you thought it was bland...its JAR sauce-there are many different flavors to try, maybe you should try another. Going in our favorites. thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!

Torsk

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
I make "poor man's lobster" all the time. It is wonderful. I tried the variation in this recipe and DID NOT like the sugar...I prefer to squeeze a little lemon in the water instead of using the sugar. But brushing with butter and serving with a side of butter is a must. Feel free to blacken, garlic, cajun...any spice you like.

Guacamole Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
I think you need to be a real avocado lover for this one. While the taste was okay, everyone tried it...I think I'll stick to regular ole deviled eggs. I was looking for ways to incorporate avocados into our diet, they are a natural source of Omega-3 (EFA)...and "good" fat. If you like avocados, I believe you'll enjoy these - I guess it just wasn't our taste. and hey, check out the avocado pie on this site - outta this world good!!!!!

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
I made this recipe with a small variety of seasonings i like to use, otherwise did as directed...with the exception of finishing in the oven. I made this recipe with chicken legs and thighs, so i felt with the bones in it needed more cooking time, as my outside coating was perfect and I knew the inside wasn't even close. Everyone liked it, all my boys 7, 16, 17, and 42!!! Thank you for such a simple recipe. Next time, I'll try the ritz or club crackers...I don't think you could screw up this recipe.

Avocado Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
i was reading that avocados are excellent food to eat, omega-3's and the right kind of fat to have. Never ate an avocado before, found this recipe...oh MY GOSH!! IT IS SO GOOD. Thank you for this woderful find, the family loved it! I did add a third of a block of cream cheese, as per other reviews suggested. Didn't necessarily need it, but got rid of the package fromt he fridge that way.

Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2006
Fancy dish, I kept expecting there to be more steps...this was totally too easy. From previous reviews I coated chicken with flour and seasoning prior to frying. Added 1 small onion finely chopped, and a clove a minced garlic while frying chicken (in extra butter i might add). NOW, I have NO clue what "tarragon" was or tasted like...but as I was using my herb mincer...it smelled like anise. Personally I WOULD NOT add anything that smelled like this to anything I cook, but I DID-and it was quite tasty. I tripled the cream, but not the mustard or tarragon. And because of my fussy 7 year old son, I just threw the sauce into a gravy boat (I didn't want to ruin perfectly good chicken)...go figure...my son even liked it (I gave to him as dipping sauce). Using a gravy server allowed us to control the amount of sauce on our rice too. This is very rich however, and would NO WAY be able to eat another helping, even though it was terrific. Will definately make again, and maybe try different herbs, maybe even a little parmesean cheese melted in...it had a "alfredo-y" base taste to it.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
TKA (totally kicks a**)! Awesome recipe. However i guess i am one of those wierdos that actually likes imitatioin crab, that is what I used in this recipe...its awesome. I used the 16 oz packages of imitation crab, cut it up with a pizza slicer. I added everything else as requested...except a scant more sour cream, (just wanted to empty my container). This tastes like a local restaurant favorite of mine. EXCELLENT!!!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2006
This was excellent recipe. A good "base" for whatever else you want to add. I called my mom and asked her for her recipe after i made this, it only differed by shortening instead of butter and white sugar vs. brown sugar. And Mom's recipe had nutmeg, which i think many others reccommended adding cinnamon, vanilla, etc...i would agree with any and all of the above. I like the "denseness" of banana bread, i have made other recipes that "fluffed" up too much, almost seemed "cakey". This one is a keeper!
