Mediterranean Quinoa

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
Interesting...it seemed to be lacking something. Added extra garlic. There seemed to be about 1/2 C too much liquid.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
It was good but it seemed like it was missing something. Adding salt helped. Going to keep trying to see what works well with it.

Filet Mignon with Bacon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
This was ALMOST a 5/5. It had really good flavor. The half and half was not enough, ended up adding a total of 1/2 C. Also ended up adding sour cream to thicken and add a little tartness. Ended up being restaurant quality. Pairs beautifully with the steak.

Chicken a la Fire Station

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This one was...bizarre to me. My taste buds were very confused and I think I liked this. My husband mentioned it seemed like a sauce that would be good a nice lump crab cake or a nice white fish. I think we'll eat this again but try it on one of those instead of the chicken. I think you really need a protein that has a very distinct, noticeable flavor as opposed to one that tastes like whatever it is cooked in.

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This is very similar tasting to a honey & Dijon mustard recipe on here however I find this to be the superior recipe. It is sweet like the other recipe but not as cloying. I didn't have a regular red wine so I used a nice Taylor Port. I should have added a bit more salt since the port was much sweeter then a usual red. There was just enough sauce to toss with noodles. Yummy!

Addictive Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Other then the fact the sauce was more like candy then sauce...this dish was fine. Husband really loved it. I thought it was missing something. Flavors were not as bold as I thought it would be. It also borders on way too much sugar. Oh! Don't forget the sesame seeds!

Beef and Vegetable Ragout

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This was great! The port was not overpowering at all. I've tried recipes in the past with wine in it and usually the wine is over powering but the port worked wonders with the meat. I did omit the sugar snap peas, not fans, and the mushrooms. I added carrots since I didn't have mushrooms. Soooo yummy. Served over mashed red potatoes!

Awesome Spicy Beef Kabobs OR Haitian Voodoo Sticks

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
When the reviews say HOT, they mean it. My husband loves heat but I can't handle too much so I only used a 1 tsp of Cayenne. We barely got through it, my mouth was numb! That being said that was the best numb mouth ever! I added onions and red & green bell peppers between the beef pieces. I also choose to use a bottom round roast. It had sooo much flavor I couldn't not believe it. We love kabobs so I'm always trying new recipes. This is the best one to date!

Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
It is very rare that you find a marinade that works well with beef, chicken, and vegetables. This one does. I loved the fact the veggies were a bit soggy after marinading for just under 24 hrs. It made them cook quicker, therefore being the perfect constancy when removed from the grill. The chicken and beef cooked beautifully! So, so, so good! Would recommend this to anyone without hesitation.

Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
This dish seemed to be missing something. After the first 60 mins I ended up splashing some sherry on it and baking for another 15 mins. It didn't really help too much. Everything was too dry but a shortened cooking time would not have allowed the potatoes to finish off. I actually think regular cut bacon and not just the center cut would have been better, due to the extra fat rendering out into the dish as the bacon cooked. Will not be making this one again.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
Turned out great! I had too much flour so I ended up mixing in about 1 tsp extra of water. I also took the recommendations and cut the sugar down to 1/4 c of sugar. The middle turned out a smidge doughy but that could be from my oven or it didn't rise properly, house was pretty cold and I couldn't keep it warmer than 47 degrees. Looking forward to eating both loaves!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
The chicken was nice and tender but over all the dish lacked in flavor. I mixed the marinade up and tasted before adding it to the skillet. Even then the 5 spice, which I am a big fan of, overpowered the rest of the flavors so I added some dry sherry to round it out. Didn't work. The 5 spice completely overtook the rest of the flavors. It ended up feeling like I was eating a 5 spice rubbed chicken. Will make this again but with major changes. Will up the soy sauce, OJ and maybe the vinegar but will cut back to a "sprinkling" of 5 spice. Also, as much as I love garlic it about knocked me over while the skillet was simmering.

Four Cheese Macaroni

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
The fats/oils in the cheeses started separating out almost right away leaving me with a slimy texture. The flavors were way too mild/subtle for me. I ended up adding tons of salt to the dish and I still couldn't get any flavors to perk up. Overall it's a bland, texturally unappealing dish.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Wonderful! So full of flavor and SPICY!! Cooked up beautifully. The only complaint is this doesn't make a lot of "juice" so I usually end up doubling the ingredients so we have something to pour over the rice.

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Would have given it 5 stars but I made a few changes. As suggested I used 3/4 c of chunky peanut butter of cornstarch and peanuts. I also added about 1 tsp of good fish sauce. That really gave it some umpf. I also added some chopped regular onions as well as the green onions.

Yakitori Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Didn't care for the combination of chicken, marinade, and leeks. The leeks didn't cook up well and they couldn't decide if they were going to be "onion"-ney or if they were going to try to mimic the flavor from the chicken.
