Green Pozole

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Followed it exactly with the exception of using chicken stock versus broth. - the Hormel Always Tender adds great flavor and IS tender. Garnished with shredded red cabbage, sliced radishes, onion, fresh jalapeno, cilantro, shreded cheese and fried corn tortilla strips. My teenage son really does not like soup and he had 2 bowls and wanted a 3rd. Hubby said outstanding and a "keeper." I love it because it is super easy. I do highly recommend the garnishes it just makes it extra special.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
This is fantastic! I have been cooking asaparagus for years, many different ways. This is by far the best. Followed the recipe exactly. Parmesean is a must! Thank you.

Sesame Crusted Mahi Mahi with Soy Shiso Ginger Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
This is simply fabulous. I didn't change a thing with the exception of the shiso because I couldn't get it in the burbs. Used fresh basil and mint leaves instead. If you are looking for a mahi mahi recipe....look no further. My kids loved it too and asked for seconds!

Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Being a Texan with a husband who has been on award winning cook teams, I was VERY skeptical of a brisket cooked in a slow cooker. Wow...amazed. The brisket even had the "ring" around the outside. Even my husband was impressed and everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing! This is a keeper!

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
I have to say I am jealous of all of the reviewers using fresh from the garden veggies. Being from Ohio orignally I know that feeling! However, this was great! I have wanted to make this ever since the movie came out but thought the veggies would too over cooked. Not so with this recipe. They were crunchy, just the way I like them. Thank you for sharing. The only change I made was adding Romano cheese instead of Parmesean and a little more garlic and fresh parsley. BTY I got the idea from a post I had on this site looking for fresh veggie casseroles. I really love this site!

Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
This is my second time to review and this even though it is my "go-to" pot roast recipe. This is the PERFECT recipe for beef pot roast. DO NOT NOT NOT NOT add broth, juice, water or any liquid. The only change I made was since I was out of bay leaves I used rosemary for my seasoning and it was delish. PERFECTION!

Sorta Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I am giving this a 5 because this cooking method by far produces the most tender cube steak. However, like other reviewers, I am big on flavor so I did season the steaks after frying with salt, coarse ground pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, Tony's seasoning and coriander. I also added a little sherry to the gravy and a few more spices to perk it up. Bravo for finding a way to make this inexpensive cut of meat tender! I plan to experiment with it a little more by adding mushrooms, fresh garlic and a little more onion. Thanks for sharing!

Pot Roast Caribe

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Made a few changes...omitted potatoes, added 3 stalks celery used Splenda instead of sugar. Added a can of diced tomatoes and some red wine. Followed the spices exactly. Also browned meat first. When I was making the sauce, I tasted it and I thought it was going to be awful...BUT after slow cooking it the combination of the meat juices and the sauce was absolutely awesome. Served over noodles for the kids and they loved it too. Husband rated it a sure keeper. Thanks for sharing.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
I love quick, easy flavorful recipes I don't have to tweak! I was looking for a great Mahi Mahi recipe my husband would eat. (picky about fish). Not only did he eat it, he loved it and so did the kiddos. The only thing I would do different is make more sauce because it was so good. Paired it with Oven-Roasted Asparagus from this site and Bazmati brown long grain rice. Fabulous!

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
Delta Queen you are the QUEEN! This was delicious. I also used mozzarella. My only regret is that I can't get Ohio tomatoes now that I live in H-town but will share this with my family up north. It was great! Also my hubby not a huge fan of tomatoes ate 2 helpings!

Shrimp Linguine Alfredo

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
Delicious. I cooked shrimp in another pan as other reviewers suggested but had to anyway as one of my kiddos hates shrimp and sauteed some chicken breast tenders as well. I sprinkled about a tablespoon of flour in sauce while whisking and a splash of sherry. Very good, very easy and the family loved it. Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
I am so happy I had those super ripe (or as my kids would say "rotten")bananas I couldn't part with. Not wanting the same old same old, I searched for a cake...WOW so glad I did. My kids begged for a second piece. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of cooking time. My oven was already at 175 from baking something earlier so I cut the cooking time to about 48 minutes. This is a keeper!

Amy's Spicy Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I had to change this up just because I didn't have everything and took a few tips...drained and rinsed black beans, added a can of undrained garbanzos, added half small can of white corn, about 1/4 cup onion, 1/4 cup chopped green pepper and 2 cloves chopped fresh garlic. Drizzeld olive oil over and used a mix of grated jack cheese and crumbled Velveeta. It was so delicious!! I will also use leftovers in burritos. Thanks so much for sharing my husband loved it!

Slow Cooker Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I am giving this 5 stars for total ease and flavor. The only changes I made were adding chicken broth, 2 bay leaves and using fresh mushrooms. I also browned the chicken first as I always do when making meat in the crockpot. Cooked on high for 5 hours then on low for about an hour. Yum! Thanks

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
I rate this a 5 star recipe for flavor, ease and most important in my house "kid friendly." Anything that the adults and kids love this much is a keeper. Like the others I added the cheese the last 15 minutes and used real bacon bits.

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This was delicious! I am not sure what the other reviewer was talking about the smell? The aroma was mouthwatering! My husband who is very picky rated it a "keeper" and my kids loved it. I used a dry steak seasoning, added olive oil and minced garlic when I browned the chops. I also used a Heineken beer. One more thing...had some apple and sliced that up and added when I added the onion. Thanks for sharing this great dish!

Jumbo Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
This recipe was really easy and really, really tasty. The only things I did different was using ginger paste as my store did not have fresh ginger(paste available in the produce section and has s decent shelf life.) I also added some diced white onions. This was better than any shrimp dish I have had in a restaurant! Will make again and again.

Grilled Cabbage II

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
UPDATE: I just made this again last night and I am still amazed at how good it turns out and how easy it is. I left out the bell pepper this time but it was just as good. Thank you again for the recipe it is awesome! I am giving this recipe 5 stars for flavor, innovation and ease! We love fried and boiled cabbage but never thought of putting it on the grill. I added 1/4 cup butter and also some olive oil,celeryt seed and plenty of fresh ground pepper. I made 2, one with the green pepper and one without. I also added some cooked crumbled bacon. Both were really good. Thanks for sharing! it was a hit and good the second day too (for what little was left).
