Avocado Shrimp Ceviche-Estillo Sarita

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
Delicious! I refrigerated the shrimp in lime juice overnight, then added the other ingredients in the afternoon. I skipped the ketchup and didn't miss it. Served on tostadas on top of a layer of mashed avocado to hold everything together. Fantastic summer meal!! :)

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Extremely easy and fast to make. Added green and yellow peppers and steamed broccoli, served over white rice. Great spicy flavor. Definitely use raw shrimp, it only needs to cook for 5 minutes or so.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
Even though I did modify this due to ingredients on hand, I think it was a great base recipe. I didn't have radish, chives, or tamarind unfortunately. I added some peanut butter to the sauce. This has a very light flavor that I really enjoyed. I will try with shrimp next time. 11/28 EDIT: I've been subbing half the white vinegar with rice vinegar and half the vegetable oil with sesame oil, it make the flavor even better. Also, I've been frying the tofu in large strips in some sesame oil before dicing and adding to the wok - it helps the tofu cook more evenly. I've added chopped cilantro at the end which is amazing too. Love this recipe!!

Pita Pizza

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
This is a super easy dinner or snack! I used sweet onion flavored flat bread and customized each pizza for what we wanted - one with pesto, olive oil, and cheese, another with tomato sauce and cheese, and the third with tomato sauce, cheese and various veggies. All were delicious!! I think I'll skip the hassle of rolling out pizza dough and just use pita/flatbread from now on! Great recipe =)

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
I had to make this without the avocado b/c my fiance bought rock-hard unripened avocados for me. :-( Still this has really good flavor as just a cucumber salad, I will be trying this again soon w/ the avocados.

Blackened Tuna Steaks with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
A lot of work, but this recipe is definitely worth it. I cut down on the cayenne and it was still spicy. Used yellowfin ahi tuna steaks. Cooked exactly 3 minutes per side, which was perfect.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This marinade is AWESOME! I used Mahi Mahi because it was all i had on hand, and it turned out perfectly. I skipped the chipotle-lime sour cream and just used sour cream on its own, lime juice, and a little taco sauce. Oh, and diced avocado, which is a MUST. Delicious - this will be my go-to fish taco recipe for sure.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I used this recipe as a guideline, and just kind of threw in what i had on hand. I used pinto beans because i was out of black beans, and i used salsa in place of the tomato sauce. I didn't have any red wine vinegar so i omitted that. This was DELICIOUS! It was so easy too. Thanks for the great ideas!

Herbed Corn

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
I used canned corn, and I didn't measure the herbs, i just kind of threw in the herbs listed and guessed on the proportions based on the recipe. This was delicious! What an easy way to dress up corn. I'll definitely use this recipe again.

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This was pretty good, but slightly bland. I even omitted the mozzarella and used equal parts sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack. I also added 1 tsp ground mustard and 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce. I might try it again and play around with increasing the cayenne or adding other spices. It's a good base recipe.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
I have made this several times now, using a few variations. Basically now I just throw in whatever ingredients I have that are similar to what is called for in this recipe - I always include the alfredo sauce, spinach, and mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. I add artichokes only if I have them, and I usually use sour cream instead of cream cheese, simply because I always have it on hand. Regardless of what I add/don't add - this is always delicious! It is literally fool-proof, and is amazing with tortilla chips.

Broiled Scallops

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I've been making scallops for a while now, but I've always sauteed them. Broiling them instead makes a HUGE difference, in my opinion. They were so much more tender! This was delicious!

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Absolutely fabulous! I was looking for a shrimp recipe I didn't have to grill, as it was raining, and this was perfect!! So so easy, and the sauce was delicious over spaghetti too.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I was not a huge fan of this. I used freshly grated Parmiagiano Reggiano, and maybe this is one of the few recipes where the pre-grated bagged cheese would actually taste better. I think I prefer the flavor of the recipes with a cream cheese base (i.e. "Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce" from this site).

MMMMM... Brownies

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
This batter was delicious! I used Negro Modelo beer, because it was the only kind I had on hand, and it was perfect. I added some Old Bay seasoning, and used a skillet instead of a deep fryer. I used about half the batter to make onion rings - this batter is even better for them!!
