Tzatziki I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2015
My husband and I loved the flavor profile of this sauce. I didn't have issues with it being runny; I drained as much water from the cucumbers as possible (placed the shredded cucumbers in a cheesecloth and squeezed out the juice) and I used thick greek yogurt (you get similar effect if you drain regular yogurt in a cheesecloth).

Broiled Sesame Cod

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
I LOVED the method of preparation... 10 minutes in the oven and fish was ready to eat... MARVELOUS!!! It's bland so it definitively needs some salt and/or spicing up. The beauty of this recipe is that it's versatile and a fantastic starting point... you can really use any/all spice mixture. I"m exciting to make this again with different spice blends (and pinch of salt).

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2015
This is the real thing!!! It's simply decadent. My husband, who doesn't like desserts, had 2 slices in 1 sitting.

Cinnamon-Apple Cake AKA Hanukkah Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
This is a great and moist cake and really easy to make. It was a little on the sweet side for me so I reduced sugar that went into the cake and didn't use all the sugar and cinnamon topping. Keep in mind that All

Roasted Apples and Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
I've made this a few times and it has been a hit each time. I made the recipe as written and I've also added a 1/4 cup dried cranberries for a hint of sweetness. Either way is great, depending on flavor profile you're trying to achieve.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
This has been s big hit each time I made it for "crowds" big and small. This is a great recipe for those that don't like sweet potatoes; the beet and onion medley tones down the sweetest of the sweet potatoes and turns it into a sweet and savory dish.

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
Very tasty and simple. It goes well with spicy Thai curry dishes. Since we like it a little on sweeter side, I added a handful of sweetened coconut flakes.

Slow Cooker Oats

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2014
I really wanted to love this oatmeal. Unfortunately, I felt like I was eating a bowl of cinnamon sugar. It was much too sweet and the cinnamon killed any and all other flavors. I haven't given up on steel cut oats, though. I'll definitively try them again but with MUCH less sugar and cinnamon.

Baked Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
My kids (4 years and 16 months) and husband have absolutely LOVED this chicken since I started making it years ago. It also gets the kids eating broccoli (they dip it in the sauce or just pour the sauce directly on the broccoli). Catalina dressing is our absolute favorite version. I bake it uncovered the last 15-20 minutes to get the caramelized effect and slightly thicken the sauce. It makes wonderful leftovers too.

Roast Adobo Pork Loin

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
I made it as written half a dozen times and it always comes out delicious. I was nervous to roast it at such high temp but it did not dry out. I left it in the oven 45 minutes the first time thinking there was no way it would be done after 35; I was wrong. 35 minutes plus resting time is all you need unless you want to dry out the pork. It's actually reheats nicely if you slice it and let it "marinate" in the au jus. The flavors are amazing, it's quick and easy to prepare and clean up is a breeze. It's in our regular rotation, in my mom's regular rotation, and my sister's too.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2014
Made as directed and we enjoyed it but we also like vinegar. I certainly like the method of preparation and the chicken was unbelievably tender and moist. I'll definitively make it again but it's not a "regular rotation" meal.

Mashed Potato-Topped Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
Great flavor and super easy. Since I had a lot more turkey leftover, I made 2 versions: one with pie crust and one without. Both were great. In lieu of gravy mix, you can also use corn starch and bullion cube (works just as well) or chicken broth instead of water. This resurrected our dry leftover turkey into a fabulous quick meal (actually, several meals).

5 Minute Microwave Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
I made it exactly as written and it wasn't bad. It was a little dry. It does the trick if you want corn bread but don't have an over or time to bake.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
As written, this is not a 5 star recipe, but once I made the adjustments suggested by others... this works out to be a "life changing" eggplant... at least in my husband's case. He always hated eggplant but has been a trooper and reluctantly tries any time I make it... until I made this one (with the adjustments from other reviewers)... he basically ate a whole eggplant by himself, foregoing the pasta and other "fall back" sides/favorites of his.

Kathy's Roast and Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
Fantastic flavor. It turns out somewhat firm (NOT tough) and not "melt in your mouth" which my husband, my 3-year-old and I enjoyed.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
A household favorite in the fall/winter. I've made it at least twice a year for the last 4 years and it always gets rave reviews with friends and family. I've made it as written and it's fabulous and I've experimented with a pinch of this and a pinch of that and it was still fabulous and fun. I love that his recipe doesn't require any cream (as most others do) but yet it's still extremely creamy in texture and taste.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
I made it following the original recipe exactly. The gravy seemed a little too thick so I added some milk (I'd deduct 1/2 star for the required adjustment). The end result was fabulous and a hit with the family (including my 3-year-old). I served with barley. Definitively adding this to our rotation especially considering how easy and quick it is to make.

5-Minute Microwave Nutella® Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Super easy and fast and moist and delicious. I made it following the recipie exactly and topped it with some vanilla ice cream. It made it taste like a chocolate cake/brownie sunday. I don't think the Nutella is a must have; I think you could make it into a regular chocolate cake and it would still be delicious.
