Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
This was outstanding! I made 3 days ago for Christmas (yesterday). The key is definitely letting it sit in the fridge for a couple days. The flavors are delicate and blend so wonderfully. It was a huge hit! Even among those who don't typically like tiramisu or even dessert. I made it in a springform pan and transferred to a pretty cake plate to serve. The only change I made to the recipe was using brandy rather than rum. The lady fingers I used were the hard variety. You don't need to cut them in half. Just dip them halfway (lengthwise) in the coffee/liquor mix (which you need to atleast double). Place wet side up on the bottom of the pan. It was great. We'll put it in the 'keep' box :)

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
My husband called this a good "safe" meal. Even when I spiced it up, its not too interesting...but also nothing offensive about it. Its a great dish to take to to a family after they have a baby or when you're trying to please picky kids. :) Here are the changes I made: I sauteed the chicken in evoo and sprinkled it with a generous amount onion and garlic powder, parsley and a little black pepper. I added frozen chopped broccoli on top of the chicken layer then poured the sauce over it. It looks too soupy at that point, but thickens up perfectly. Then following other suggestions, I sprinkled seasoned bread crumb over the cheese. We'll make it again.

Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
The sauce was great! I went more of a stir fry route with it - cubed boneless pork loin sprinkled with the cumin and cayenne. I skipped the flour and salt. Stir fry until cooked through then remove from heat. I also steamed some vegetables (carrots and broccoli) and stirred it all together with the sauce a few minutes before serving. I didn't use the peanuts or red bell pepper just because I didn't have any on hand. I doubled the sauce and it was just right. Serve over rice. It was very tastey! Will make it again.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
We thought this had great flavor. It was a nice, healthy option when you get that panda orange chicken craving! I juiced and used the zest from an entire orange. I didn't have rice vinegar so I subbed with white wine. I also used dry powdered ginger only because I didn't have any fresh root on hand. I used 3 cloves garlic (crushed) and quite a bit more green onion to suit our tastes. Definitely try stirring in some veggies (particularly steamed broccoli because it holds the sauce so well) into the sauce before serving. It was yummy and we'll be making this again! :)

Yep it's the best. I can modify and tweak recipes for this site with the best of them, but this one just doesn't need it. Its fantastic as it is written.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Absolutely awesome flavor! Here are the changes I made: use only 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp of cayenne pepper in the marinade. I was plenty salty and spicy when you cut back - more would just be overbearing! I left the chicken in the marinade for about 7 hours. I broiled the chicken - about 7 minutes, turn over half way though the time. I used only 1 tsp of salt in the sauce and used 2 cloves of garlic. Serve with grilled or broiled zucchini over brown rice. Some mango-ginger chutney and naan would be fabulous with this as well.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
3/4 tsp salt was a little too much for my tastes. I'll cut it back to 1/2 tsp next time. I made cinnamon and raisin, as the recipe called for - and they are very tasty. Next time I'll try some different add in and flavors.

Empanadas

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Deeeeelicious! The dough is excellent and could be filled many different ways. Here's what I did after reading other reviews: divide dough in 2 smaller balls before chilling overnight. Only take one out at a time (you have a fairly narrow window between too hard and too sticky to work with). If you don't like wrestling with the rolling pin you can do what I did - roll into 1 inch ball and use the bottom on a cup or small plate to flatten. them. SO easy! I filled some with chopped up apple pie filling with cinnamon and the other with canned pumpkin with pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar. Both were outstanding for a fall season treat. Be sure to roll them in the cinnamon sugar right away - before they cool! They are best served warm. Great recipe! Thanks for posting it Rosina!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
Awesome recipe! I made the following changes: used 4 slices of real bacon rather than the bacon bits, added a dash of liquid smoke, used 2 cans mild chili beans, one can hot chili beans, and 1 can kidney beans (drained). Used 3 (14 oz) cans of diced tomatoes. Did not use the green chilis, red bell pepper (just because I didn't have one), celery, or tobasco sauce. Used only 2 lb of ground beef (no sausage just because I didn't have any). It was plenty of meat and plenty spicy, and makes PLENTY to go around (freeze the leftovers!). Cooked 6 hrs in the crock pot on high the day before. Put in fridge overnight and reheat before serving. Serve with sour cream and shredded cheese. awesome!

Homemade Chicken Cacciatore, Sicilian-Style

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Great! I changed it a bit though...I made it all in the slow cooker, which made everything SO easy. I used skinless thighs. I didnt sautee anything...just put the chicken on top of sliced onion and bell peppers in the crock pot, mixed the sauce in a separate bowl and added on top of the chicken. I added a can of tomato paste and left out the flour. Next time I'll try a little red pepper to give it a kick! Served over mashed potatoes, which was a nice change :)

Red River Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Good recipe. My husband loved it. I used thinly sliced round steak (because its cheaper) and it was still tender enough. I used olive oil and light sour cream to cut the calories. Because I didn't use butter, I also skipped the flour (which causes the sauce to thicken) and used cornstarch instead. I would cut back the onion and use lots of fresh sliced mushroom next time. Great flavor!

Cashew Chicken with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I used sesame oil and used red pepper flakes in place of the hot sauce. I added broccoli and couple tbs. of peanut butter. Good recipe though I felt like it needed some thing to make it a bit sweeter and tangier to fit my tastes. Will make it again and tweak it a little.

Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Like other users, I replace the butter with unsweetened applesauce. I cut back on the sugar a bit but will use the stated amount next time. They weren't quite sweet enough for muffins to me. I used 2 medium bananas and two small ones. Throw your overripened bananas in the freezer then defrost on the counter for 30-40 min. when you're ready to bake with them. I might experiment with adding some spices next time. Maybe some cinnamon? Fantastic recipe and so good for you!

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
Other reviews said they had trouble with the fish drying out, but I didn't have this problem. Just make sure you don't over cook it the fish and be sure to cover with lemon slices (these lock in the moisture). OR just fry up in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat with some evoo. The Dill sauce was excellent. Our house smelled awesome all night. We'll have this one on the menu again at our house!

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
fantastic - I used fresh fruit: 3 c. wild blackberries and 1 c. raspberries. I used light butter and a dash of cinnamon in the berries. I used the amount of sugar that the recipe called for and it wasn't too much for the tart berries. serve while its still warm with vanilla ice cream!

White Sangria

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Big hit. I served it in a sun tea jug and added fruit to each glass. I used pinot grigio and white peaches instead of mango. The peaches were the best part!
