Shrimp Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Very well done. But at 866cal/serving I would not call it healthy. The Spanish rice is fantastic! The sauce is fantastic! I would suggest eliminating the mayo from the sauce and adding so thinly sliced cabbage for a slightly healthier alternative.

Healthier Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I added some tomitillos and used pasilla peppers for a spicier soup as well as a some fresh oregano and kafir lime leaves. I strongly suggest you roast a chicken stuffed with a lime and use what's not meat to make broth. Remove the fat from the broth and use in place of water. A very nice soup that goes great with corn bread, fresh cilantro, avacado, & fresh limes.

Irish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Wow! This is great! Only sub was chicken broth for water and I went long on the Dubliner cheese too. For onions I like to use Shallots as i love the flavor. Very nicely done, Chef John! All who tried it loved it.

Scallops with Roasted Garlic Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Nice recipe but 3 minutes per side for scallops is way too long! Scallops will cook in half that time or less.

This was fantastic! I used a 10-yr old port and loved the results. Combine with a side of asparagus for a great meal.

Creole Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Very good and thanks to other reviewers for suggesting this mix as a holiday gift. My bride has never enjoyed any of the store bought Creole mixes, but loved this combination. Very well done!

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Yum, Yum, Yum. I'm a real meat eater but this dish just made it into our weekly rotation. It is fabulous. Like others, I added some butter to the mashed spuds to flavor it up and used home made chicken broth to really bump up the flavor. I love this dish and would serve it to company without hesitation.

Romantic Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Wow! This is wonderful. I made it for my bride for our Pre-Valentines Day Dinner and she loved it! I used Black and Green Olives and doubled the mushrooms. I also use the quartered, marinated artichokes that come in small glass jars because I had them. I prefer them because their marinade is mostly olive oil. If you like olives, artichokes and mushrooms, this dish is a must try!

Authentic, No Shortcuts, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
Very Good! I followed others suggestions and used 7 cups of chicken broth (home made) instead of 10 cups water. As I'm not crazy about the Creole seasoning I have found in stores, I made my own using a recipe I found on this site. I also doubled the amount. Next time I may triple it. Also added cellery and used Pasqual peppers instead of green bells to spice it up a bit. Next time I plan to add some prawns as well.

Feta Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
Good Lord Almight! These burgers are fantastic! After blending the ingredients, I let them set up in the fridge for about 1 hour before forming patties. Grilling was no problem after brushing the grill with a generous layer of olive oil. Forget the bun -- these burgers don't need it. Instead top with a layer of steamed spinich and serve with Sweet potato french fries. Visually stunning and absolutely delicious!!

Cholay (Curried Chickpeas)

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
Good start but a tad bland for may taste. Perhaps some curry paste or doubling the spice quantities. As others have mentioned, this is a rather involved recipe that requires numerous bowls, pans and pots. If you don't have a dishwasher or teenage kids, pass on this recipe.
