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!

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!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
The only thing different that I did was to chop up the capers and swap out half and half for the whipping cream. Delish!

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.

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!

General Tao Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This was phenomenal! The only reason I didn't rate it 5 starts is b/c I made a few minor changes. As per other user's recommendations I cut back on the ketchup and vinegar. I also added garlic and sherry to the mix. I used Sriracha because my husband loves heat. The changes were made simply based on personal preference. Also, I didn't have any problems keeping the chicken "crispy". Unlike other recipes, it didn't go all goopy when I added the chicken to the sauce. However I made sure the chicken bits were a nice golden brown all over before I pulled them out. I also cooked everything in an enameled cast-iron dutch oven which might have something to do with the texture holding up as well.

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Restaurant quality! Absolutely LOVED this marinade. Beautiful balance between sour, warmth, and sweet. Hints: Canola oil works as well as olive oil, but with a little less flavor; and, 1 T paprika is a perfect substitute for the liquid smoke.

Trinidad Stewed Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
My husband was leery at first, we've tried recipes that were/are very simliar and have not hadd good results. However this wonderful! Not only did he clean his plate, he went back for seconds. The only difference I did was to use parsley instead of cilantro (neither of us can stand cilantro) and diced regular sweet onions and a little bit of a scallion.

German Rouladen

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
Phenomenal! If you have a hard time getting flank steak, get the meat department's "butcher" to slice down a bottom round roast.

Chicken Korma

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
My first try at Indian. It was delicious however I woefully underestimated the power of the crushed red pepper flakes. I'm slowly building up my tolerance to dishes with alot of heat or spice to it this however blew the top off. I loved the flavorings but I had to down two glasses of milk to get through it. So a word of warning if you don't like heat at least halve the called for flakes!

Farfalle Festival

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Very tasty and will make this again however I did have to alter the recipe and will probably tweak it some in the future. 1. I did not cook the chicken in advance. I sauteed the veggies and then threw the raw chicken in to cook. 2. I ended up having to add ALOT more salt, even after including a tsp or 2 of bacon drippings. I think I will add more onions and tomatoes and less garlic (and I love garlic). Also, I will try to add a few more herbs and spices. While creamy it seemed to lack "something" will update when I decide what. Also, while this is being picky, the picture is misleading. Mine came out a creamy white color with only a barest hint of red while the picture seems to indicate the tomatoes will play a bigger role in the sauce. We didn't even notice the tomatoes at all. I think you need at least an entire Roma tomato to raise the acid levels and cut through the richness of the cream and Alfredo.

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.

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.

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.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Very creamy and tangy. Was a bit "runny" but I also used a local Mexican restaurant's salsa and not the chunky store brand so I'm sure that had something to do with it.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Lots of flavor but very, very salty. I only use low sodium soya but it didn't seem to matter on this one. Turned out salty anyway. Best "homemade" teriyaki recipe yet.

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.

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.
