Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
Four and a half stars, really. This was good and everyone enjoyed it. However, it was not spicy (in spite of using habanero infused olive oil for 1 tblsp of the olive oil in addition to the cayenne) and we could not tell there was any garlic at all. Using caution indicated by the reviews of others, we only used a teaspoon (not tablespoon) of salt. We did peel (leaving the tail intact), devein and butterfly the shrimp. They were perfectly tasty, just not the flavor indicated by the title.

Delectable Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
Tried this with chicken tenders, as they were on hand. Had run out of brown sugar so "heaped" the molasses. Do not have garlic salt or garlic pepper so subbed garlic powder, 1/4 tsp salt and fresh ground pepper. The Worcestershire gives a bit of heat which is quite tasty. Thanks for sharing.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2013
This recipe does not need another great review; however, we also think this is exceedingly yummy. Our biscuits are not sweet and do not come out with caramelized sugar cooked through and through them, as this topping does. We did increase the flour mixture by 1/2, but not sure it needed to be done that way though it made for a plentiful top crust. Thanks for sharing this relatively easy and delicious way to eat summer peaches!

Rhubarb Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
This was a great way to use our rhubarb. Being stingy with our rhubarb (having just brought some down south from Iowa and cleaning and cutting about 6 cups), I added a drained can of tart cherries to the cherry pie filling, which allowed me to still use only 2 cups of rhubarb. As did Betty Boop, used 8 tablespoons of flour in place of the tapioca, since we had none. Quite tasty and a change from our usual strawberry rhubarb or plain rhubarb pies. Thanks for sharing.

Grill Master Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
So glad we marinated these, as directed. This imparted a layer of flavor not usually found in hot wings. However, these were not spicy at all, in spite of basting continually with the hot sauce during the portion of cooking. The flavor was great, however, just not a "hot" wing, even though I sprinkled them liberally with cayenne after marinating and before grilling.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
Simple, great instructions and perfect. Following the advice of SweetTooth, did not add the butter = only change. Thanks for sharing.

Grilled Guacamole

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
Although this idea seemed like a great one and I really wanted to use it to show off our new grill, it just did not add any flavor to grill the avocados. Served at a dinner party and no one noticed any difference. When I finally broke down and mentioned the grilling of the avocados, someone said they thought they could taste a smoky flavor, maybe.

Ex-Girlfriend's Mom's Salsa Fresca (Pico de Gallo)

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
Quite tasty. Because we had no fresh tomatoes, we used a can of Muir Glen organic fire roasted diced, well drained. Added garlic and did not use a whole teaspoon salt. Thanks for sharing!

Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
This is a great and easy way to create a totally different meal from left-over spaghetti sauce. Purchased four pre-thinned chicken breasts to make it even easier; used a mix of Italian bread crumbs and lemon pepper panko and mixed in some granulated onion and garlic; used Wondra flour, as it has a built-in sifter-type spout; only used one egg, which was barely enough but didn't want to waste the large part of a second one; did not measure the olive oil for browning; only used shredded mozzarella, which was on hand, in place of the cubed and provolone and Parmesan mix; placed left over penne in bottom of casserole, placed breasts on top, covered with spaghetti sauce, then shredded cheese, and covered for entire baking time of about 25 minutes. Do not understand the instructions of covering each of 4 breasts with 1/3 cup sauce, when ingredients only call for a total of 1/2 cup sauce, but had much more spaghetti sauce on hand anyway, so it was not a problem for me - others should be aware. Am really making this review so tedious to remember how I did it, as it turned out quite tasty and even picky meat eater hubby liked it quite a bit. Thanks for sharing this tasty meal

Mexican Lasagna II

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
This is very easy, quick and tasty. Browned beef and drained and rinsed the fat from it while sautéing a diced onion and chopped garlic in olive oil. Added the beef back in along with the taco seasoning, 1 can of refried beans and an undrained can of diced tomatoes. Only had smaller tortillas, so tore them into large pieces to fit the 9x9 pan I was using for this. Layered as I do regular lasagna, using with pepper jack and sharp cheddar cheeses for this. Served with taco sauce, shredded lettuce, Greek yogurt (in place of sour cream), crushed Dorito chips, and hot sauce. Thanks for sharing!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Great way to cook hamburger steaks. Because we did not have access to a packet of gravy mix, we made our own: twist of fresh grated pepper, 1/2 cube vege bouillon, 1 cube beef bouillon, onion and garlic powder (1/4 tsp each), 2 tablespoon flour, 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch, 1 tablespoon catsup. Will remember next time to make the hamburger steaks SMALLER, as they did not shrink much during cooking and were quite fat. Good gravy - used fat free half and half in place of water. Brown the hamburgers, added the soup and gravy and cream; covered and cooked at 180 degrees for 4 hours in the oven. Thanks for sharing!

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
The chips on the bottom layer did get soggy enough to be nonexistent. We crushed and added some more to the top when serving. I think if we make this again, we will add a can of refried beans to the hamburger mixture. We did add taco seasoning to the beef/bean mix. Also, used nonfat plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream (we usually have this on hand and always sub it for sour cream). It tasted a bit like a dip and we even ended up dipping chips into the pan to eat some. Not bad, but with all the grand reviews, we expected a little more. Thanks for sharing!

Grandma's Chicken Chardon

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Very tender and tasty. Laziness led me to line the pan with foil for easy cleanup. Following the advice of previous reviewers (love reviewers!), doubled the egg and butter mixes. Did not double the bread crumb(used Italian)/cheese mix and had a lot leftover of that, so am glad for restraint there. Himself does not eat mushrooms, so used none, but may next time - would be easy to pick them out. At least doubled the granulated garlic. Used boneless skinless thighs and they were done in 30 minutes. Thanks, Maddiegail, for a new, tasty and easy idea for chicken!

Tater Tot Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This was great -both easy and satisfying. Because we were out of Cream of anything soup, substituted a can of Campbell's Beef gravy, and I think we will always cook this with the gravy in place of the soup. I did sprinkle a little freshly grated medium sharp cheddar on before covering the entire dish with tater tots. Used a 9x9 pan.

No Knead Beer Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
This is an easy (and would have been more so if not for the trip to the store for the beer needed here) and good tasting bread from a very reliable contributor to this site. We made this with more than half white-wheat flour, as that was what we have on hand. As instructed, did not place in loaf pan but cooked on baking sheet, and it held it's form well. The end result was a tasty loaf. I love to try this chef's recipes, as they are dependably and consistently scrumptious. Thanks for sharing.

Spicy Honey-Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
Used boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this. Put together the honey sauce in the casserole and placed the chicken in, turning to coat. Refrigerated until cooking time, about an hour. Cooked, covered, for 30 minutes at 350, turned the thighs over, and broiled about 15 minutes, turning once. Very tasty. Next time, will cook in foil-lined pan for easy clean up. Forgot the butter and don't know what difference it would have made but it was very good without it. Also, did not have a tablespoon of chili powder and used what we had, which was about half that. Did not baste at all, so very little effort involved here. Thanks for sharing!

This did not work out for us. There was very little flavor and really just a waste of good shrimp.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
This is very easy and quick yet turns out flaky and tender. As I was not using for a savory pie, but for a sweet one, I added a tablespoon of powdered sugar. Like so many others, I used half butter and half butter flavored shortening in place of using all shortening. Thanks for sharing!

Pork Chops in Red Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
We thought these were tender and tasty. Because our chops were boneless but quite thick, we cooked at 375 for almost an hour then turned to 175 for an hour or so longer. Served with mashed potatoes and the gravy was great. Thanks for sharing!
