Grilled Skirt Steak with Homemade Asian Barbeque Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
Wow! Very rarely do I think something is worthy of a 5 star rating, but this is simply the best skirt steak I have ever had! Not sure marinated it for 15 minutes would actually do the trick. Maybe it's true, but I didn't want tough meat. So to be sure, I marinated for about a day and a half, turning it over and over in the fridge to make sure all sides were nice and juicy! I can't wait to get more skirt steak to do it again! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I realized when reading this recipe that cooking any chicken on medium-high for 8-10 minutes per side is completely crazy and will result in ruined chicken. I pounded my chicken very thin (about 1/2 inch) like other suggested. I put the chicken on medium-high for about 2 minutes on each side. Next time I'll put the burner at medium because medium-high almost burnt them, even at 2 minutes. Using a non-stick pan with a little extra oil kept the coating on just fine. I followed the rest of the recipe just as it is written and it was very good. The chicken comes out very juicy. It's so easy that I will definitely make this again.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
I'm sure there is a reason you need to leave them in the fridge for 8+ hours, but I don't see the purpose. I left them in for about 4 and they turned out perfect. I can't imagine them tasting any better. The bones just fall away from the meat because it's so tender. The foil does leak, so I put a pan underneath them to catch the drippings. I also took the advice of several and put extra bbq on and broiled them for about 10 minutes. The barbeque sauce is watery after it cooks, so definitely broil it to get the bbq to stick. I was completely intimidated by ribs before, but never again! This was too easy!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
Somewhat disappointed with this recipe. To begin, my meat mixture, although tasty, did not make enough for the dish. I should have doubled the meat recipe, as all the juices evaporated during the hour and a half cook time. Then, after cooking for an hour, the sides were crispy and almost burnt. I served this for family and no one really said much about it. Overall, this lasagna is bland and not worth the time spent making it.

Japanese Style Deep Fried Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
I make chicken and pork this exacty way ALL the time because Panko is the only breading that provides a good crunch! I never even thought to use shrimp. This recipe is simple and delicious!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2014
I make this recipe about once a week now. It is outstanding, and I especially love that it doesn't taste healthy! You MUST try this! The only thing I would be cautious about is using 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. I did this and it was way too salty. This last time, i used about 1/4 teaspoon of salt and it turned out perfect!

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
I like the fact that this cake is milky and mushy because I think regular cake is dry and dull. But, my goodness it is sweet! It tasted just like eating a spoonful of sweetened condensed milk. You can't eat more than 2 bites. I would suggest using store bought whipped cream rather than using the heavy cream because it just added to the sweetness/heaviness of the cake. The "whipped" heavy cream turned out runny and mixed together with all the other milks making it even more sweet than it needed to be.

Stuffed Pattypan Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
I can appreciate the creativity of this dish, but it did not work for me. Although the dish looks pretty and appetizing after it is made, it tastes so dry. The bread crumbs, bacon, parmesan all made me thirsty and had almost no flavor when combined with one another. You can taste the individual parts, but they just don't work well together in this dish.

Honey Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
My husband LOVES chicken on the bone and in my opinion, that is just boring! So, I like to sauce it up when I make. This sauce is absolutely delicious! It's sweet and, although I thought 3 tablespoons of curry was too much, had just the right amount of curry in it. Add the mushrooms and this is definitely a 5 star recipe! Love it! Thanks for sharing!

Grandma's Corn Bread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Pretty good. I felt like it had a bit too much sage in it, but everyone else thought it was good. Will probably make again next year.

Accidental Fish

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
This recipe is delicious as is! If you like sauce on your rice, DO NOT half the butter. The original amount provided the perfect amount of sauce. The chives and lemon are what make the sauce, so if you don't have fresh chives, it won't be as great.

Shrimp Po' Boys

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
While the sauce is good, it's nothing spectacular. I used about 2 tbsp of lime and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. It did not seem to have too much soy sauce in it, but it's possible that the Ponzu sauce would have worked better. The shrimp was bland, although I love Panko crusted anything. Overall, it was just okay. With the good reviews, I was hoping for more.

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This was my first ever Thanksgiving turkey. When I told my family that I was going to cook the turkey without aluminum foil or an oven bag (like they do), they thought I was crazy. I think they ate their words when they tried this turkey. Although when it came out of the oven, it looked terrible (definitely not like the ones in the pictures), it was by far the best turkey I have ever eaten in my life. I hate white meat and even the white meat was juicy on this one. In the morning, the turkey was still juicy after being microwaved. I will forever use this recipe. I did not use any of the vegetables or white wine. All I did was brine the turkey and cook it by itself. I did not have a bucket big enough to brine the turkey in, so I used an oven bag. I put 1 1/4 gallons of cold water, 1 cup of salt and 1 cup of sugar and let it sit in one of the pull out drawers in my fridge. The extra effort of brining is well worth it. I also used a Butterball turkey (one reviewer said not to brine it, as it's already brined). Obviously I did not have a problem with it, so if you want a Butterball, get a Butterball!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
I love that this is easy, but it is a so very average dish. There are tons of better ways to make baked/breaded chicken breasts on this site.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
The fact that this recipe uses canned artichokes and mayonnaise did not sound appetizing at all, but since the reviews were so high and I love artichokes (not normally canned), I decided to give it a try. This was shockingly good! My husband was very disappointed that I didn't make more. I made it exactly as is, but my chicken took about 20 more minutes to cook. I owe that to the thickness of the chicken. Other than that, this recipe is outstanding and a must try.

Tilapia Scaloppine

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
I am a fan of chicken scallopine, so I decided to try it with tilapia since I had some. This recipe is not bad, but as with most dishes like this, the "sauce" is so runny that it ends up in the bottom of the bowl. You must use a spoon to get any, and you can't use a spoon with noodles. I wonder if you can cook the noodles in it. I cook my noodles in chicken broth, which adds more flavor, but I just want the noodles to soak up the wonderful flavors that this dish has to offer. Using one lemon was fine... definitely not too lemony. And I did eat my entire bowl, so it couldn't have been that bad right? Maybe I'll try it with rice next time.

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
I have been looking for a good stir fry recipe that did not involve teryaki (not a fan of it) and this was just what I wanted! I doubled the marinade like many suggested and made it with zucchini and mushrooms on top of white rice. I didn't have green onions and I forgot to use the sesame seeds, but it was still delicious!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
While the overall dish was pretty good, all I really wanted to do was soak up the sauce with my garlic bread. It was delicious! I'm thinking about making the sauce just for bread dipping next time!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
This key lime pie is so refreshing! Other than having to squeeze the juice out of and grate the limes, this recipe is a cinch and takes no time at all.

The Best Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
I have made this recipe twice with different results. Once, I marinated this a thin top sirloin for several hours and it was to die for! The second time, I marinated a thick ribeye for about an hour. I'm not sure if it was the short time or the thickness of the meat, but I couldn't even tell there was a marinade on it. Either way, if left to marinate for a good time, this recipe is wonderful! It's tangy, sort of sweet and takes a minute to prepare.
