Brown Rice Black Bean Burrito

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Good healthy recipe. I don't give it 5 stars because it's not the best burrito I have ever had.

Oh-So-Good Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Really good recipe, but I would change the title to chicken and rice as there's just as much rice as there's chicken. This one is definitely a keeper!

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I've made this a few times, it's great if you like sweet potatoes. The toasted marshmallows taste delicious too. You can cut down on the butter some, because there's always some excess butter on the dish afterwards.

Butternut Squash Soup with a Kick

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Didn't have any ginger, but tasted great anyway. The ginger would give it an extra kick, next time will try with ginger.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
Got rave reviews on this salad by friends. Don't need to use expensive roquefort, blue cheese is fine. Also added strawberries for color.

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
Too dense. Not fluffy at all. Probably need to remove the strawberry puree from it.

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2004
Very tasty. I am used to eating seafood cooked like this, this dish is common in coastal cities in Brazil. Fixed it with rice for my parents, they approved it, it was a light and healthy meal. Used frozen cod fillets, took about 10 minutes to cook. And there is liquid left over, so you probably want to let the tomatoes mix evaporate a lit bit longer. But don't mess with the fish or overcook it or they will break apart. Also, I used dried parsley cause I didn't have fresh, and it tasted just like fresh.

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2004
I used bottom round steak for this (this is one of the cheapest steaks, on sale at $1.64 a pound), and it turned out pretty tender. Don't waste your money on expensive steak. Followed the recipe exactly, used 4 steaks. There is a strong vinegar taste to it, if you're not into vinegar. And as for the smoky flavoring, I used it, but it's not essential, don't waste your money on that either. Be prepared cause you will end up smelling like garlic (12 cloves total). Even though I used it for basting too, there was a lot of sauce left over. I would say this recipe is good enough for 10 steaks, if you put it in a tightly closed container. 12 hours is long enough. Most of the time I find no reason to marinate steaks. Course salt (the brazilian style of barbecue) is enough, I make shih-kabobs, and thick juicy steaks without needing to marinade the meat. The meat already has its own special taste for me.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2004
This is a healthy way to make corn. The advantage of cooking corn this way is that the vitamins and minerals stay in the corn, not just go away as with cooking in water. Cooked for 30 minutes, corn was not totally juicy, but next time I will try soaking it in water first so it keeps some juiciness inside. It has a nice smoky flavor too, as if it was cooked on the wild campfire.

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2004
I didn't know if I would give it 4 or 5. I will give it a 5 because my husband raved about it. He is a chips and salsa kind of guy, I guess that's why he liked it so much. The directions were hard and too long to follow exactly. I took some shortcuts. Took 1 1/2 hours from start to getting it out of the oven. Did not marinade the chicken. Preheated oven only at the end, cause the sauce takes about 1 hour to cook. Boiled the chicken first for about 15 minutes in the broth/dried onion combo only , and then got it out, and shredded. That way I did not have to pick up the pieces one at a time. I used 10 6 inches tortillas instead of 6, and was able to fill up 2 8X11 pans. They were a little crunchy on the ends, but still good. Did not use heavy cream, just half and half, but that did not make a difference, the tortillas still broke when I was not careful. My husband asked me to make it again. This was my first enchilada attempt. I will try experimenting with some other recipes too, and maybe use bouillon instead of broth, that will make the sauce cook faster.

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2004
I followed the suggestions by one reviewer to use 1/4 for the bottom layer and fill up to 2/3. It worked. I got 24 muffins, they didn't get so big, but were yummy and soft inside. If you want them bigger, than I would fill 20-22 cups. I did not use paper liners, and it was ok. I greased the bottom of the pan first, made the cream cheese mix, turned up the heat, and then did the batter. That way the batter won't have to wait for a long time while you make the cream.

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
I do not get the 5 stars. These were very mushy. They did not hold together at all. I followed the recipe except for I did not use the jalapeno, and added some crushed red pepper instead. I also did not use all the oil required - if I did it would be extremely soggy, 2 tablespoons is enough for frying them. I dropped them by the spoon in the pan. They tasted ok. I am still looking for the perfect veggie burger recipe though.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2004
Like other reviewers suggested, I doubled the recipe but didn't double the topping. There was enough topping for two batches. I added a little extra milk, cause I thought the batter was thick. It rendered 22 big muffins using a regular muffin pan size, a little more than 3/4 full. 1 pint case of blue berries is almost enough for 2 cups, so I added some leftover frozen berries to complete. I made the mistake to overbake them, 29 minutes, and they were crunchy on the outside. Next time, 25 minutes should be enough. I liked them, the crumb topping makes it very crunchy and yummy! Will definitely make them again!

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
Easy and simple recipe. I used instant rice, cooked for less than 10 minutes (should have used less broth I think, cause it was a bit watery). Too bad it didn't use the beans liquid, I don't like waste, that's why I'm giving this 4 stars.
