Broiled Scallops

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
To me, these were just OK. The scallops I got were still frozen, even though they were from the deli counter, so I am sure that didn't help. When I rinsed them, I rinsed them in hot water to dethaw them a little. I ended up having to cook them for about 15 mins, not the recomended 7 mins because they were cold on the bottom so I flipped them and baked them longer. Again, that is probably from them being frozen. My husband didn't like them because they were "too fishy" tasting. I definetly prefer them grilled on the BBQ. Just brush them with some oil and season with some Johnny's salt. They are not fishy tasting that way and have the smoked flavor, and they are not so heavy with the butter cooked in. I don't think I will make this again. I am sure I would like it more if the scallops were not frozen, but I spent $22 on the scallops and don't want to risk spending that much and not liking them as much as grilling them.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This is sooo good! Out of all the things I make, this is my husband's favorite!! I added garlic, italian seasoning and fresh basil to the sauce. The first time I made it and followed the directions exactly...it was just missing something. I also made it once with all mozzarella since the store I went to was out of provolone and I couldn't even tell the difference. This is sooo good!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
I was craving ginger cookies one day so I searched for a recipe. I made these and LOVED them! They are so soft and chewy and were really ginger-y. My husband loved them too, which is the ultimate test for my picker eater. Will make again and again...and again!

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
So good and sooo easy! Like anything, the longer you marinade it, the better. I forgot to do this in advance once and let it sit for about 3 hours and I could definatly tell the difference. I like to make it the night before. If I followed the recipe exactly, there was too little marinade and too thick to coat it, so I follow the recipe but use half the amount of meat and it's perfect! It says to discard the marinade but I put it all in the baking dish. I make this all the time. Love it! The tenderloin freezes great too and since it is just my husband and I eating, I get one of those tubes (I guess you would call it) of tenderloin, cut it up and put half in the freezer for later.

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
I really enojyed this recipe! Next time I make it I will marinade it a little longer. I could taste the flavor, but only a little. While I love the flavor of shrimp, I would have loved it if I could taste the marinade more. Once I skewered the shrimp I rubbed the leftover marinade on the skewers, I didn't have the heart to toss all that wonderful marinade. Will make this one again!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
Soooo good! It doesn't caramelize that well for me. I have made this recipe at least once a month for years now (been meaning to rate it for a long time now) but I am OK with it not caramelizing that well for me because I always make white rice and drizzle the leftover sauce on my rice. We love love love this dish! Oh, and since I don't like meat on the bone, I make it with chicken breast.

Picadillo

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
This was pretty good. I didn't realize until I started cooking that I was out of onions, so I just added some onion powder and we don't like olives so I left those out and it turned out pretty good. It does not look appealing at all, but tastes pretty good.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2003
This recipe was amazing! The only thing I changed was using cilantro instead of oregano and I also doubled the lime for more tang. Amazing! I made it for my very picky Dad and he loved it!

Artichoke Bruschetta

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2001
Yum! Yum! YUM!!! This was sooo good. I made it for a potluck at work and everyone was raving about it! I followed the recipe exactly, plus added 1 clove of garlic, 1 totamo, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and then sprinkled parmasean on top. I put all of it in a big bowl and put garlic bagel chips around the bowl for everyone to dip instead of putting it on the bread. Great recipe! Will make over and over! Thank you!!!
