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.

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.

German Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
This had great flavor and everything cooked evenly. Didn't need the potato flakes for thickening, the cheese did that on it's own. This is not a 5 star for a couple of reasons. First off b/c of all the cheese, chicken broth (low sodium at that), and mayonnaise, this was nearly too salty. Second, for our tastes it was way too rich. I think next time I will half the Velveeta and add low fat milk instead. Also, we topped it off with about a T of bacon, did not use any of the grease. It was very pretty with the carrots and red bell peppers and the celery was a nice touch. All in all a great winter time, stick to your bones soup recipe.

Chinese Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
It cooked to a beautiful golden brown and the aroma was mouthwatering and if you added corn starch it made a wonderful gravy; however it seemed to lack something in the flavors. I did have to use a dry sherry so I'm will to hedge that might have been it. Ended up having to add tons of salt but that only went so far. It is worth a shot especially if you prefer subtle flavors over bold ones.

Solianka or Russian Beef Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
The only recommendation: Service with sour cream. This was spectacular! The ingredients are such that you would never think to mix them together; however, they meld beautifully. I had to make some substitutions b/c of market availability: I couldn't find marinated mushrooms so I cubed up some Portabellas, no veal so I cubed up an eye of the round roast & simmered until smooth, and I don't like kalamata olives so I used black. My Russian friend said it was pretty authentic and was a bit surprised I knew about the soup. Thanks Karena!

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!

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.

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!

Colombian Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
Not much flavor. The skin had a less than desirable texture. The chicken cooked up well though so it wasn't a total loss. But husband ended up eating a bowl of canned soup. Overall not one of the best recipes on here.

Frank's Favorite Slow-Cooker Thai Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
I cooked this on the stove top. I used Siracha and creamy peanut butter, with chopped peanuts as a garnish, and actually used milk instead of coconut milk (I had run out oops!). I did add some chicken broth and some really good fish oil. Seemed to be missing something and I'm not convinced it was the missing coconut milk. Will keep this recipe but will need to play around with it to get it to work.

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!

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!

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.

Pepper Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
This ended up being pretty bland. Lemon didn't do much to brighten up the sauce. This ended up tasting like an old family recipe we cook frequently and like better.

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
The fish came out beautifully, however the flavor was a little too mild for me. I"m not 100% sure the cooking time is correct either. I have a charcoal grill, and I ended up cooking it at 250 for 25 mins before it was finished. Was still tender and flaky though so it worked out.

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
I can't eat Italian sausage so this is coming second hand, but my husband said this was really good. We were looking for a recipe that was close to Carabba's soup and this is nearly it. He said the restaurant's had a more "meaty" flavor other then that the textures and flavors were dead on.

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This is one of those times I wish we had half star ratings. The idea of rolling the chicken breasts in bred crumbs, instead of flour, had not occurred to me. The chicken ended up juicy and crunchy, I won't be using flour again! However, the sauce it self was incredibly bland. I added a ton of the herbs as well as garlic but that didn't add much punch to it. Sauce was nice and smooth though.

Chicken Paprikash

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Made this w/o the dumplings, husband isn't a fan, and turned out great! Served it over egg noodles. I made it with the regular store paprika b/c I was out of my sweet Hungarian. Really wish I had that paprika would have brought out the flavors more. Other then that this recipe was wonderful!
