Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
Used rotisserie chicken, but otherwise made it exactly as written. I love spicy, but this was a tad too much for me. Also tasted a little salty. I had no problems with the oiliness that others complained of. Will make again, but will try blue cheese dressing, and will pull back on the Frank's just a tad.

Cuban Black Beans II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
Served it for a crowd for a Cuban themed dinner. My only issue was that due to the tomato base, most people thought it was chili--I don't know why that bothered me, but it did. It was pretty tomato-y, so I might use less tomato paste next time. I was informed that "real" Cubans would never add tomato paste to their beans. Added jalapeno and some hot sauce, too, because that's just how I roll. I'm sure "real" Cubans would take issue with that, too. I used 2 cans of rinsed and drained black beans and skipped step 1 altogether. About 2 cups of chicken broth for the water. The people I served it for are wimps when it comes to spice, and no one thought it was too spicy, even with the jalapenos and hot sauce. None left over, and everyone said they liked it.

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
Here's an interesting thing to do with the top crust. Make the bottom of the recipe as directed, keeping the top crust frozen. Pop it out of the pan it comes in, crumble it up quickly (not too fine), and mix with some shredded cheese. Sprinkle the crust/cheese crumble on top and bake. Its good, and really different.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
Read the reviews, set the oven temp to 320 x 8 min, gently scraped them off the bottom of the pan and tossed them a little bit, then back in the oven for another 2min. Perfect! Now, however, I am addicted and will no doubt try to sell everything I own to buy kale to feed my addiction.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I drank most of the leftover wine while this was cooking, so my review may be somewhat off. I liked it a LOT, used a cheaper pork roast, low sodium soy sauce, and served it with the au jus over garlic mashed potatoes. *hiccup* I cooked it for 7-8 hours on low, perfect for a 2+ pound roast. Sear it first if you are serving for company, but for family, it would be just fine the way it is.

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Just average tasting, and I made it with chicken broth. Followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Several people at the party I went to left their beans untouched on their plates. It was easy, just not great.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
Easy, and of course its a base to use to make it your own. I loved it pretty much as written, although I did add a few shakes of crushed red pepper.

African Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
I loved this, and of course, tweaked it just a bit. I added 2 big tablespoons of a very spicy Vindaloo curry paste (you can find it in your local grocery store w the Indian foods, usually), cooked cubed potatoes, and peas. I also lightly sauteed some shrimp until barely done, and added in the last 5 minutes of the simmering time near the end. Used the whole can of coconut milk, no problems with the sauce being runny at all. Really good, restaurant quality dish. Now I can have curry whenever I want!

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
This is now my "go to" grilled shrimp recipe. I made the follow few changes: Only used 1 pound of shrimp, kept all other amounts the same. Used 1 tsp garlic salt in place of the crushed garlic and coarse salt called for in the original version. Perfect!

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
Oh, lord Did I make a boo boo! I read some reviews that said it was better if you doubled the olive oil and vinegar. Well...I totally misread the amounts and used OUNCES, not tablespoons! Boy, is my face red! But believe it or not....it turned out very well. After marinating, I discarded the marinade and just grilled the chicken. My husband and I loved it! I'm not sure it would have been as good using the small amounts that were stated in the original recipe. I wound up using 4 ounces olive oil and 2 ounces red wine vinegar for 2 large chicken breasts that I pounded thin. I could have probably used even another chicken breast--with my mistake, there was plenty of marinade!

Easy Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
Made this in the crockpot. Instead of applesauce, I chopped up 2 apples very fine. I tossed them with 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp of cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp of ground ginger. Seared the 2# pork loin roast in a pan (salted & peppered) first, then placed in crockpot. I dumped the apple/ brown sugar mixture in over it. Cooked om low all day, basting occasionally. As juice accumulated, I added a tsp of soy sauce. When ready to serve, I uses cornstarch to thicken the gravy. Not too sweet at all! Meat was fork tender. Big hit w hubby!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
This is a simple, quick, yet tasty recipe that most people would have the ingredients right on hand. Is it gourmet food? No. I don't think it was meant to be. I did not notice any "oriental taste" as others had noted. I used chicken breasts instead of thighs, added an extra clove of garlic, and about 1/2 tsp of cumin to the marinade--otherwise made and cooked it exactly as stated. Served with salsa and fat free sour cream on the side. My husband ate about 3/4 of the entire recipe, and asked that I keep it in the rotation...which I'm happy to do! (To reduce calories, I usually serve fajitas over shredded lettuce instead of with tortillas.)

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
I loved this recipe. I used Pringle's Select Crisps, the Parmesan/Garlic flavor, and Fat free Ranch dressing, since that's what I had on hand. I baked it at 450 for 11 min, and used tilapia fillets that were about 3/4 in thick. Turned out perfect--flaked well, very moist. My husband devoured his, and was disappointed that I hadn't made more. A keeper.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
INCREDIBLY....SALTY! That was my first and most overwhelming impression. I made it as directed except I put in 3/4 of a package of taco seasoning. I like a lot of salt and I could hardly eat it. Next time I'll just add my own cumin and other spices.

Broiled Grouper Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
Looks very, very similar to Broiled Tilapia Parmesan found on this site. Which was very good! There are tons of ways to tweak this.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
Didn't have tilapia on hand, so I used mahi-mahi filets I got from Costco the other day. I, like many of the others, tweaked a bit. I didn't want the sauce to slide off as many had complained about, so I added about 1/3 cup of breadcrumbs to the Parm/butter mix. I also added about a clove of minced garlic, a dash of crushed red pepper, and some dried basil/oregano. I also VERY lightly sprinkled the fish with Blackening seasoning on each side, prior to broiling the fish. My husband has begged me to make this often, and he hates fish. So you know it had to be good!

Slow Cooker Dump and Go Cheesy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
I've made this for a long time, with the following change: I mix 1 can Cheddar Cheese soup with 2 cans Cream of Chicken soup. Then just pour over the 6 chicken breasts and cook over low heat all day. Shred at the end and serve over rice. YUM!

Brownie Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2004
I never in my life thought I would be complaining (just a little) that something was "too" chocolatey and sweet, but this was. However, I made it for work and everyone loved it with coffee. Overall--good. I'm not diabetic, but I think an insulin shot is called for right about now!
