Cuban Pork Roast I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Came out right the second time I made it. I used the crockpot the first time. Worked better for me in the oven. The flavor was amazing. I didnt find it overly citrus at all. I also added some emeril's essence one of the best things Ive made from allrecipes

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Came out well. my bro is a meat man but really liked it. I followed the advice about weeping the eggplant and I baked them longer than the recipe but still not long enough. next time I will bake them at least 10 minutes on each side. Also one large eggplant was plenty of eggplant for me. Next time I think I will use the Trader's Joe's frozen breaded eggplant, which only has to be microwaved for 2 minutes. that will make things much easier. UPDATE: I have made this twice using the trader joe's frozen breaded eggplant. just as good but much easier

Okra, Corn and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I'd give it a low four because I think the corn took away from the flavor of the okra (my nephew, who enjoys a lot of the vegetable recipes I get off this site, agreed). I used Trader Joe's frozen sweet corn. Plus I only used a 16 oz bg and it was still way too much corn. I'd use less or no corn next time. Otherwise the flavor was good. I'm surprised people have a problem finding file powder. It is gumbo file and should be available with the creole seasonings in most big supermarkets.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This came out very satisfying for me with some modifications. I added 1.5 lbs of ground turkey and 1 lb of chicken apple chardonnay sausage from Trader Joes, which I browned in olive oil and made my own meat sauce. I suggest even if you use a canned sauce, adjust the seasoning until it has enough kick I cut the ricotta in half as suggested and also doubled the mozzarella. I did a layer of sauce, then ziti mixture, then more sauce, then mozarella and parmesan. I only baked for 20 mins.

Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
Just tried this tonight, turned out pretty good. It was a little salty, but I brushed the fillets with a little seasoned salt (I always worry about fish being seasoned enough)and probably would skip that next time. Instead of butter I brushed olive oil on both sides before dipping in the bread crumb mixture. I used a canned parmesan-romano cheese combination. I also cooked it in an oven compatible cast iron skillet sprayed with pam.

Baked Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
One of the most succesful recipes I have tried off of allrecipes; my brother and I really enjoyed this After reading the comments from a few reviewers, I upped the ingredients to avoid running out of stuffing, of course I ended up with too much, but the mixture is so flavorful (the bacon really sets it off) that it can be combined with lettuced for a great salad or mixed in with other vegetables I used both shredded and canned parmesan cheese; I also mixed together bread crumbs and canned parmesan and sprinkled the mixture on the tops before baking. Others mentioned that the green pepper didnt work for them; it worked fine for me so I think its a matter of taste. This is definitely a keeper for me

Mediterranean Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
After reading all the rave reviews, and even the one not so enthusiastic one complained more about the consistency, I was disappointed. Didnt taste much better than a canned vegetable soup to me. I'll finish what I cooked but I wont be in a rush to make this again
