Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
No, it's not really sauerbraten, but it gets the texture right. Not my favorite, but a quick and hearty meal on a weekday. I served it with hash browns and brussels sprouts. I used the dried onions rather than the onion powder.

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Four stars for ease of preparation. I tried this last week with jarred salsa, and was not impressed. Last night I tried it with homemade salsa, and it was much better. I served it with rice, the refried beans without refrying from this site, and sliced avocado.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Wow! This really worked, and you truly don't have top soak the beans. My house smelled like a Mexican restaurant! This one is a keeper for those occasions when you can't be home to cook beans all day.

Spicy Indian Chicken and Mango Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Sorry, I didn't care for this. Too bland, needed salt and spices. The cucumber was weird...but I did make a cuke salad with it, and that was delicious.

Blue Cheese Cole Slaw

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
This is really good! The blue cheese kind of melts into the dressing for a pretty subtle flavor. I halved the mustard and went light on the sugar, and we really enjoyed the results!

Cola Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
I'm giving this a 3 because I could stomach it at all -- I don't like sauerkraut, but made it for my half-German husband, who would probably rate it a 4.

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I was in the mood for a chicken and pasta meal -- imagine my delight when I opened this site and this was the featured recipe. I also used marinated artichoke hearts and recommend that change. Leftovers were surprisingly good cold the next day!

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
Great bean salad...neither too sweet nor not sweet enough. I used dried pintos and garbanzos, along with canned green beans, and did not have to go to the grocery store because I had everything on hand. Surprisingly, it was NOT better the second day as some things are...eat it the day you make it. Just a comment though: this is NOT vegan. It has honey in it.

Tandoori Chicken I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
Didn't look, smell or taste like any tandoori chicken I ever had...maybe something was left out of the recipe? Anyway, the leftovers were excellent in Julie's Chicken Salad from this site.

Cuban Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
Loved this. Had to change the cooking method since my slow cooker disappeared last time I moved. So I just compromised, cooked it 5 1/2 hrs. on my stove's lowest setting. A slow oven would probably work too. Like most slow-cooked meats, it was better the next day.

Chickpea and Couscous Delight

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
We like couscous, but it can be boring. This was easy and made a staple side dish more interesting.

Chalau

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
We found this bland and boring, and I used LOTS of cayenne,

Yakitori Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
Greater than the sum of its parts. Really tasty! I served it with jasmine rice and an Asian cucumber salad. Yum!

Vidalia Onion Tart

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
This was an OK quiche. I didn't care for the odd flavor of the soup mix -- tasted (and was) artificial. I have better quiche recipes.

Grilled Pork Chops with Summertime Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
I like this one. The meat is juicy and the flavor is slightly spicy. I served it with lentils and steamed broccoli, and the salsa was great on the lentils. Left out the mint because we don't care for it.

Stove Top Tamale Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
Definitely easy, but only fair. The muffin-mix topping (I used Jiffy) was WAY too sweet.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2006
This can be great with some minor adjustments. I used shallots instead of onions, because I had them. I also roasted the asparagus (you can do ahead) and toasted the cashews. With these changes, five stars.

Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2006
Great combination of flavors. Did mine on my Foreman-type grill, closed. Next time I will try fresh pineapple in larger chunks. I served this with asparagus cashew rice pilaf from this site.

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
Pretty tasty puttanesca sauce. I have made it with both kalamatas and nicoise olives and prefer the nicoise. This one goes in my files.
