Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2002
I took some advice from pervious reviewers and made sure that I fried the chops until the outside was very crispy (make sure the oil is hot before adding the chops, makes a difference in how tender they turn out). I also doubled the gravy, and used 1 can cream of mushroom and 1 can golden mushroom. That really helped keep the dish from having that "some kind of meat covered w/cream of mushroom soup" taste. I also sauteed some fresh mushrooms in the pan I'd cooked the pork in and added them to the soup mixture. I added some extra garlic and just a couple dashes of cayenne. I cooked the chops for 20/20.....needed less cooking time I think cause I'd browned them so well. Turned out wonderful!

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
OMG OMG OMG These are SOO good. I cannot believe how well they turned out for me. I do not have a deep fryer, I just used a frying pan. I think the secrets are to make sure and let the battered shrimp chill for the 30 minutes, and to make sure your oil is good and hot. I piled on the coconut and did not have a problem w/the batter sticking. I did add some cayenne and some garlic to the batter, and added the beer slowly until I had the right consistency (used ALMOST all of it the recipe called for and I'm sure it would have been fine with all of it). These are just like the Outback's coconut shrimp. I can't wait to make dinner with the coconut shrimp and the Aussie chicken on this site. Awesome! Thank you thank you thank you.

One Pot Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2001
This was great. I did change it a little tho.......I added about 2 tsp. cayenne, used a little more milk than called for, and only about 2/3 of the package of noodles. I also added some onion powder, garlic, mushrooms, and a little finely diced red onion. While I was cooking the pasta, I added the butter, peas, onion, and mushrooms to a pot and simmered. Then I added the cream of mushroom soup, milk, cheese, and seasonings. I simmered this while I was finishing up the noodles. Once the noodles were done, I added them, and simmered it all for a few. Then I put it in a casserole dish, sprinkled the top w/a little more cheddar, and some italian breadcrumbs, and broiled until brown. It was an awesome tuna casserole for someone who likes things w/a little more spice.

Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
I sauteed some garlic in the butter before adding the flour. I also added some dill weed. This was delicious on salmon cakes. This sauce is quick to make, but have all your ingredients out and ready to go. It thickens quickly once you add the flour and milk.

Savory Crescent Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2002
YUMMY!! I used canned chicken and it was still incredible. For those of you who thougt it was "too bland", try this......make your normal "favorite" chicken salad, but use the 3 oz. cream cheese instead of mayo......then follow the recipe. It's so good. I added celery, red onion, and apple pieces. This was so great......definately an easy favorite I will make again and again. Oh, and I sprinkled w/Italian breadcrumbs instead of crushed cruotons

Balsamic Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2002
My roommate is a vegetarian and was looking for something to bring to a party. I found this and he decided to try it (because it was quick and almost as easy as buying a cheese tray or something at the store). Of course I stole a few mushrooms before he left and thought they were great! The only change was he halved the mushrooms instead of slicing them to make better appetizers (the easier to stick a toothpick in my dear ;-) and cooked them a minute or two longer to compensate for the larger size. Really great tasting.

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2002
DELICIOUS! I followed all of the suggestions...diced apples and sprinkled w/cinnamon and sugar, reduce the water in the sauce (I mixed everything else together and then added water gradually until I had the consistance I wanted), cooked for 10 minutes before adding the sauce. I made two dumplings (used 1 diced apple) with the "grand" crescent rolls. I only baked for 27 minutes and it was perfect.

Dill and Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: May 8, 2003
This was awesome. I mixed together the shrimp/celery/green onions (added extra green onions cause I like them) and then added the lemon juice and lime juice. I didn't measure how much I added of each, just tried to keep it at lemon:lime 2:1 ratio in the original recipe and didn't add enough for it to get soupy. I also added some crumbled feta cheese and some halved grape tomatoes. I scaled it to feed 4 and then served it as a side dish for 5 people, we ate it all. I served it with Hawaiian sweet rolls and pita bread. I liked it best on the hawaiian rolls, but it was good on the pita too.

Cherry Tomatoes Filled with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2001
YUM!! This was the best. I wanted to note a cool modification on this recipe. One of my roommates is lactose intolerant (so obviously, he can't have cheese). I bought some tofu and substituted it for the goat cheese in his "stuffed tomatoes". I was a little worried how it would turn out, in fact I told him that if it was "gross" that he didn't have to eat it. I stuffed one tomato for him and had him try it, and he thought it was GREAT. The only change he would make is that next time I should buy the "extra firm" tofu instead of the "firm" tofu. So I was pleasantly surprised that the substitution worked. Thanks for a great recipe. It was easier than I thought it would be!

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2002
This was good. I added a little more hot sauce and some garlic. I was out of flour (I know, pretty weird, I had no idea), so I used Ritz Crackers for the coating. I also added about two teaspoons of mayo cause it wasn't sticking together very well. It turned out great. I do agree w/the reviewer who said it needs a sauce. I dipped mine in lemon juice, but a nice mild white sauce would have been great.

Honey Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: May 27, 2002
this was the best. Didn't make any changes, except to triple the recipe!! (Glad I did!) I did take a previous reviewer's advice to put the veggies on seperate skewers as they took longer than the shrimp to cook. Absolutely awesome.

Chutney Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2002
I was plesantly surprised by this. After I made it I wasn't sure I'd like it. By itself, the chutney/onion soup mix tastes weird, but it is great on the chicken. I used peach chutney and added some cayenne and brown sugar. Next time I will try mango chutney. I used the full package of onion soup mix (but didn't salt the chicken) and had no problem w/saltiness. I also made it with potatoes that I sprayed w/butter flavored cooking spray and mixed w/another package of onion soup mix, and they complimented each other very nicely. This was also SUPER easy, which is a huge plus. I just recently tried it w/mango chutney. Highly recommend that over the peach. Again I added cayenne and brown suger. It was awesome.

Orange Chicken Delight

Reviewed: May 10, 2002
this was pretty good. Not quite what I expected, and a little too "orangy" but that might have been the brand of marmalade I used.

Red Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2002
Absolutely awesome! And so easy! I added a dash of cayenne pepper (not enough to make it hot, just enough to flavor it slightly) and a dollup of sour cream in the middle. It was great.

Aloo Phujia

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2001
This was pretty good, but I had to doctor it up a lot. I doubled all the spices but the salt, but when it was done cooking I had to add salt to it anyway. I also added some butter to this to make it richer. It was good, but not wonderful....Okay, here it is two days after I wrote this review...I had some of this stuff left over and had it for lunch, and it tasted great. I guess the potatos had more time to soak up the spices or something. So I think this is a good "make ahead" dish that tastes better a day or two later.

Outrageous Warm Chicken Nacho Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I made sure the tomatoes and black beans were drained very well. I also added a block of cream cheese. I think that really made the dish - it was nice and creamy and didn't have that overly Velveeta taste. I didn't have any runniness issues. I also used two cans of chicken. It was very good but I am sure it would be even better if you bought and shredded a rotisserie chicken (which I will do next time if I have time). I made it for a work function so I only added one seeded and diced jalapeno. I served black olives, diced jalapenos, sour cream with diced green onions and parsely, and hot sauces on the side. The black olives and diced jalapenos were particularly popular. It was a huge hit and I got a lot of compliments. I cooked for 1 1/2 hours on high and 1/2 on low. The last 1/2 hour I was stirring about every 10 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe!

Garbanzo Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2001
I have no idea how this turned out so well. It was incredible. I added some cayenne pepper, it was so great. I have never had a veg dish this good! I always use mushrooms AND onions. This is not only a fav of mine, but everyone who has tried it has loved it. I am not a "veg" person, but this dish is incredible. YOU MUST TRY THIS!!

Mock Pate de Foie Gras

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2002
This tastes good and is pretty. (Well, as pretty as you can get liver sausage to be!) I added a dash of hot sauce to mine. HOWEVER, there should be a step in here where after mixing all the ingredients together, you return it to the fridge for an hour or so to let it firm up before trying to form a ball and roll it in nuts. It is much easier to handle that way.

Hot Artichoke Dip with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
This tasted really good but was a little greasy. Next time I make it I will substitute cream cheese or sour cream for some of the mayo to cut down on that. I think I would like more sundried tomatoes in it as well. I did add some minced garlic and that worked well. I used the marinated artichoke hearts and liked the extra flavor.

Better Than Sex Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2003
I took this to a party yesterday and the WHOLE thing got eaten. Everyone was asking "who made that cake?" and asking me what was in it. I used 4 skor bars, 3 on the cake and 1 on top of the cool whip. BTW, for the people that said the whipped topping melted, use cool whip, not the whipped topping out of the spray cans. The cool whip won't melt.
