Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Very delicious, while also being light and healthy - definitely highlights the flavor of the fish in subtle way. I sauteed minced garlic in the butter, used fresh parsley, added salt and pepper to the fish, and baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
This is my family's FAVORITE recipe of life. It is such good comfort food and it smells amazing while you are making it. I make this about once a week by popular demand. Do not use 5 cups chicken broth; 3 cups is as much as you will need for a good consistency. I suggest that you sautee everything in a large skillet and then transfer to the pot when you need to add the chicken broth and beans, since it seems to sautee everything a lot quicker. I serve it with monterey jack cheese sprinkled on top, with avocado, and sour cream (and occasionally with warmed tortillas). Try it with these toppings - it's magical and makes you happy to be home eating dinner :)

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
So easy and delicious. I used 2 bottles of Trader Joe's 3 cheese spaghetti sauce, and no boil lasagna. Turned out great!

Stuffed Zucchini

I made this with homemade spaghetti sauce (see recipe for Italian Spaghetti sauce with Meatballs). I used Monterey Jack cheese. Everyone raved over this recipe.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Great, easy cookies! I used a regular muffin pan because I did not have a mini muffin pan, and they still turned out great. I followed the advice of others and put the reese's cups in the freezer, and the dough in the fridge.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
Soooooo good. Definitely do NOT need to go all crazy with browning meat, and DO cook on Low for the longer time period instead of trying to speed things up by putting it on High. I made it both ways, and while I still enjoyed it when I put it on high, it made a difference in the meat texture and turned out perfectly when I cooked on low, as suggested. I like mine to have more broth, so I made sure my ingredients were covered in beef broth (about 5 or 6 cups I think). I added a glug of red wine, 1/4 tsp salt straight into the broth (in addition to the 1/2 tsp mixed into the flour already), and I put in 1.5 - 2 tablespoons of soy sauce instead of the worcestershire sauce (I made this recipe gluten free with gluten free soy sauce and gluten free flour). Use red potatoes because they won't turn mushy on you. It's the simple flavors of this recipe, cooked to perfection, that make this a great recipe. It's like your grandma's best, classic Beef Stew. Definitely going to be a staple in my house.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
This is a great way to enjoy lunch throughout the week. I halved the recipe and followed the advice of others, plus a few of my own additions: 1) caramelized 1 small onions with 1 green bell pepper and 1T brown sugar, added corn and green chilies towards the end of caramelizing process and added a dash of salt and pepper, 2) used 1 chopped fresh tomato with about 5 oz. salsa instead of canned diced tomatoes, 3) 2 cans black beans (didn't have pinto beans), 4) mixed 1/2 package taco seasoning into my cooked brown rice, 5) mixed cheddar and mozzarella cheese (that's what I had on hand), 6) added lime juice to the entire mixture, 7) served with sour cream. My husband loved it, and only suggested the addition of a meat as a possible boost, but it's great with or without meat.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
definitely one of the best soups I've ever had. I followed the advice of others and did not add any more salt. I also used 1 zucchini and 1 c. celery as an addition. I used 5 hot italian sausage to give a little kick, and 3 cans of beef broth.

Oven Baked Rice

Reviewed: May 20, 2014
This of course tastes great, I just like to cut the butter back a bit. I also substitute lemon juice for vinegar if I don't have it, and that tastes great, too! Mine usually takes longer to cook because I double the recipe. Probably almost an hour. I have cooked it on 350 and 375 before with no changes to the texture. Just watch it, and stir occasionally.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
3 cups sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla, put in fridge overnight, roll out the next day by putting between two sheets of parchment paper and then rolling (no flour or powdered sugar necessary). Put back in the fridge for a few hours before cutting shapes (even better to leave overnight again), cut shapes, put back in fridge before baking. Delicious! It really makes a difference how long they are in the fridge when you are making complicated shapes.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
Great recipe. I did use part chicken stock, and I was out of potatoes so I put in a can of cannelini beans. I also used a ham hock.

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
I am mostly writing this for those of you who discover that you didn't have enough strawberries, or if you would like to make it, and you don't have quite enough strawberries. I had a little under 4 cups (about 1 lb.) of strawberries, and found out when filling the pie crust that my jelly did not go far enough to fill the spaces. To compensate I created kind of a strawberry cream pie by whipping 1 1/2 cups heavy cream with 2 tbsp. sugar until past stiff peaks (helps keep better in fridge to whip a bit longer). I used the whipped cream to fill in all the spaces and make a topping. I then topped it all with semisweet chocolate chips. My crust was homemade (see Pie Crust IV). It was delicious. In terms of the general recipe, I followed the advice of others in a few ways: I used more than half of the strawberries intact in the pie crust, and mashed the lesser part. I followed the advice of others, and "painted" the crust with 2 oz. semisweet chocolate chips melted (let it harden before adding the filling - it keeps pie from getting soggy). I also reduced the sugar to about 3/4 cup, and the water to 1/2 cup. I just added all the ingredients together in the pot and brought to a boil, stirring continuously, and kept it at a boil for 3 minutes.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Really delicious. Everyone loved this banana bread. I did follow the advice of one reviewer and combined dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately, made a whole in the center of the dry ingredients and added the wet along with the sour cream. I halved the recipe and made only 1 loaf. It turned out great.

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Very delicious. I doubled the ground beef. I only had a little bit of cheddar, so I used part cheddar and part mozzarella (and added tapatio sauce and cayenne pepper to liven up the milder flavor of the cheese). I used a little bit more carrots, celery, and onion. I also used beef broth because I had it on hand, but I imagine chicken broth would be just as delicious.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Very good. I followed advice of others and made these alterations: mixed cornstarch with more chicken broth instead of water, melted in regular cheddar cheese at the end, used half and half instead of milk.

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Amazing. Best contrast of tart and sweet. I did take a shortcut on the crust, and used Trader Joe's frozen pie crust, but I will be attempting the crust next time. Even people who weren't into pie thought it was amazing, and that it hits the cherry pie flavor just right - not too sweet, not too sour. I did use the revised version of this recipe that has more cherries (2 lbs), less sugar, and a bit more cornstarch, which was according to the reviews of others. Fantastic.

Chicken Broccoli Ca - Unieng's Style

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Delicious. I didn't have oyster sauce, so I just used more soy sauce. I also reduced the pepper a bit, and added a tad more sugar. I used baby bok choy. Also, I steamed the broccoli for a few minutes before adding in with the bok choy, and used chicken broth instead of water.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
Loved this. I added more chopped fresh tomatoes and spinach to the skillet. I made my own alfredo sauce (a little more than a cup whipping cream, 1/4 cup butter, 1 1/2 cups freshly grated parmesan, 1 clove garlic, freshly chopped parsley - sautee the butter and garlic, add whipping cream and simmer for 5 minutes, add cheese and parsley). It turned out fantastic. I'll make this again.
