Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I followed the basics in the recipe, but added a small finely diced serano pepper (sans seeds), 2tbsp finely diced red onion, and 1/2 tsp cumin. I used a basil, oregano, and garlic tomato sauce and marinated everything for about 15 minutes refrigerated and 5 on the counter top. I decided to cook this in a pot because I wanted to use the sauce. Served over rice. BF LOVED it, would give this 5 stars because it reminded him of ettouffe, expect with a little kick. I'll save for when it gets colder and keep my changes as is.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
Pretty good, but with some changes. Would have received a five star if the meat had fallen apart. Used a 2-3lb chuck roast, seared in pan before putting in slowcooker. Started roast on high along with all veggies for 2 hours before reducing to low. The broth was a can of beef broth, 1 can water, and half can merlot wine. Pulled meat out after 5-6 hours cooking and sliced, returning back to slowcooker to marinate in broth. Meet was juicy and very flavorful, much more tender than I expected. Will make again.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
I LOVED this with my changes. As is, I would give 3.5 stars. I soaked fillets in milk, seasoned, and prebaked 3 minutes pulling out and flipping over. I combined mixture, sans lemon juice and basil, added cayenne, parsley and panko crumbs and coated the top portion of filets only. Baked at 400 for another 5 minutes and let filets sit for 1-2 minutes. Served over rice and with a green bean and tomato medley sprinkled with parmesan cheese. The fish was so JUICY AND TENDER and the panko added a nice crunch!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Made this with leftover turkey from thanksgiving. For the beans, I used two cans, one white kidney beans or northern and one can navy beans with bacon. Made some adjustments based on other reviewers comments. Used half Texas onion half green onion, 1 fresh jalepeno, and substituted chili powder and red flakes because I was out of cayenne. Served with cornbread, a salad, and an option of toppings for the chili (fresh scallion, diced fresh jalepeno, chopped fresh cilantro, and shredded coley cheddar cheese mix)

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I'm rating this a 4 due to the changes I made recommended by other raters. Used a 2.5-3lb chuck roast, seasoned with S&P, italian seasoning, and a little red pepper. Patted on flour and seared on all sides. Placed in slowcooker. Used 1 can cream mushroom, 1 can beef broth, half packet of onion soup, and 1 cup red wine (Makes lots of gravy which I love). Cooked on high 4 hours, added carrots, celery, onion, and potatoes and reduced to low. Cooked another 4 hours. Turned out tender vs. my own homemade version. Next time will try cooking on low the whole time. Reheated in microwave for 5 minutes and it was still tender. Would recommend serving with bread or over mashed potatoes.

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
Will definitely be using this as a starter to my banana mut breads. I reduced the recipe to make one loaf instead of two and it came out perfectly. There were a couple of changes I made, that I will remember for next time: (1) I didn't bake for the 60-70 minutes but more like 40-50 (2) I used half white sugar and half light brown sugar (3) I like surprises in my banana breads, so I throw in an extra ingredient or two. This time I made blueberry banana nut bread. Next time, I will try adding coconut and pineapple, nutella or chocolate chips, or even pumpkin and spices for a fall version. Message me if you have any other ideas! Really great start to a banana recipe. Definitely easy to follow! Thanks!

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
BF loved this! Loved the idea of adding cabbage and bacon to mashed potatoes; they complement each other and give the mashed potatoes some texture. Made this for St. Pattys dinner, but will make again.

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
These were great! Thanks for the recipe. I used panko crumbs for extra crunch and I would highly recommend to anyone. I crushed them a little bit more so they were similar to the consistency of regular bread crumbs. I also made them in a continuous process in batches of 6 rings. After coating them all with flour, I dipped batches in the batter and then straight into the panko, shook a little, and then right into the frier. Turned out perfect!

Chicken in a Pot

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I was hoping this was going to be great but the BF and I agreed it was average, not something that I would make the next night because I just loved it so. BF actually gave it a 3.5 stars. I doubled the sauce as recommended by others, followed everything else as written except I used canned mushrooms instead of fresh. Served over rice. Thanks for the recipe.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Great recipe, added an extra slice/two of bread b/c I don't really like soggy casseroles and it turned out perfect. For topping: mixed sugar, brown sugar, and pecans and sprinkled all over. After baking, let it rest 10 minutes. Great as leftovers for next morning.

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2012
Made this for dinner tonight, reducing the servings to 2 people and using one filet. Followed ingredients, except used a whole egg and didn't have garlic powder so I used onion powder. Cut our filet into big nuggets, but you could do whole or even sticks. Tested one nugget to ensure batter was seasoned perfectly. Fried each nugget until they were a golden brown, let drain and rest before serving. Delish!

Grilled Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
It was too cold to grill so I followed other comments and baked it in the oven at 425 for 30 min. Next time I will reduce the time a little or remove the fish from the dish, it continued to while sitting in the hot juices and got a little overcooked. Overall great flavor and spice, just need to work on the perfect doneness. Served over rice.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
This is a great recipe. I made 4 chops (1 in thickness) and reduced the rest of the ingredients to just 3 servings. Cooked on low for 7.5 hrs and the meat came out tender. Served over rice with the sauce and with a side of mixed steam vegetables. Will be adding it to my list of monthly meals to make!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This was my first recipe using mayonaisse and it turned out pretty well. Reminds me of a similar recipe that I've made before but with a homemade cream sauce and it also had mushrooms. I followed the recipe as stated expect I preseasoned my chicken (both sides) with garlic salt, parsley (since I didn't have chives), and pepper. After mixing my sauce, I tasted and it was okay; however, after baking it, the bacon drippings completely changed the taste of the sauce which then came out GREAT! Both me and the BF removed the bacon before eating our chicken--there was just a texture inconsitency that we didn't like (top portion was browned and crispier than the underside portion). Served with parsely baby potatos and steamed green beans.
