Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
Followed most of 'NYPD K9 COP's suggestions, but followed the ingredients list to a T. Baked this (in the cast iron skillet) for 20 minutes even though we started with room temperature chicken and it was perfect. It was spicy, but slicing it thinly and serving over pasta tempered the spice. Served it with Cajun Pasta Fresca on this site and it was fantastic together. So easy!

Cheese Souffles

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
It's a really good recipe and easy to make, but I didn't feel the flavor of the cheese came through at all. I took the time to grate a nice, flavorful cheddar, so I was sad not to taste it. Maybe I just don't understand souffles. Superb texture though!

Grilled Delmonico Steaks

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
Wasn't sure what to expect since I don't like onions and this calls for quite a bit, but this recipe is ridiculously delicious. Definitely way salty enough without any extra salt. We also hate rosemary and left it out with no problem or detriment. Served on top of white rice, it's the easiest thing to keep in the freezer to pull out the night before. Grilling keeps the house cool in the summer so it's a win win win. We used a really cheap cut, round steaks, which was tough, but still delicious. UPDATE: Made this with ribeyes (like this recipe really calls for) bought from Costco, and they were seriously out of this world.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Strata

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
I agree with a lot of the viewers. The texture was really nice (even though in the morning some of the bread wasn't soaked at all) but it's like a souffle - it fluffs up a ton, so make sure your guests get to see it before it deflates. I made sure to shred good quality cheddar and didn't taste it at all, and I thought the recipe could have easily withstood a few more strips of bacon. I wanted to love this recipe but it was just bland.

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
So so good! I wish it didn't take so long to bake. I was weirded out by the list of ingredients but it really worked well. Complex flavors with some heat! So excited to find a way to eat sweet potatoes without butter or anything unhealthy - there's so little olive oil you can barely count it!

Italian Style Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
Quite tasty. Served it over egg noodles but felt like it blanded it out too much, might serve it over parmesan polenta next time. The meat was delightfully tender and the meal was quite acidic (hello heartburn), but the flavor was right there. Threw in extra mushrooms and sliced onion because we like it. Super filling and makes a bunch! Made 4.45 pounds since that's what Costco had. The meat was tough until about the last 1/2 hour, then it really got nice and soft. Phew! I was worried for a sec.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Made this with green onions instead of onion (which I can't stand) but followed the rest of the recipe to a T. Thought it had a nice, delicate flavor but could definitely stand another tablespoon of mayo (it's a tiny bit bland, though I'm now wondering if my dill was old), or an extra smear of mayo on the sandwich. Made it the night before (not sure if this is meant to be served right away). Might mix it with some cottage cheese for some creaminess.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
This came out great! The sauce didn't penetrate through the meat but that's how chicken is. This came out really juicy and the reduced sauce was awesome with Japanese short grain white rice. Served it with Snow Peas Oriental (made with spicy sesame oil) and it was a great meal. Adding this to the recipe book! This would be great to have in ziplock bags in the freezer. As the chicken thaws, the marinade will penetrate the chicken.

Stuffed Filet Mignon Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
OMG delicious and completely decadent. The cream cheese is very rich so I might use less next time but I summarized this recipe to my fiance who looked completely disgusted, and he ended up eating most of it. Absolutely fantastic. Not the prettiest little things, but who cares, with a taste like this.

Berdean's Cube Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
As the fiance said, 'This is the best application of cubed steak ever'! We were about to write off cubed steak forever, until we found this recipe. Great over mashed potatoes and followed another reviewer's addition of 1 onion (which we took out after it was cooked) and 2 pounds of baby bella mushrooms, which went with the gravy and mashed potatoes so nicely!

Sirloin, Pepper and Onion Skillet

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
Really good. I misread the ingredients and sliced the steak into 3/4 inch strips (whoops, I feel dumb), so it came out really chewy/tough, but the flavors were solid. Delicious sauce, and loved the peppers and onions. Not your typical fajitas (heavy taco/fajita flavoring), but savory and delicious and great with cheese as mentioned by others. Also doubled the balsamic and would do that again next time. I would love a more tender cut of steak.

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
So. I don't like cottage cheese but wanted to give this a chance, so I made half the shells with ricotta instead, in case we didnt like the cottage cheese ones. Oh and I used small curds (in the snack packs) instead, cause I thought the large ones might be gross! It turned out after eating the cottage cheese ones, I couldn't go back to the plain ricotta ones! The cottage cheese ones were so much richer and had good texture, I start thinking about the leftovers at like 10:30, when lunch is at 12, and cant wait until that time to eat them. We had extra filling left over, and some extra manicotti shells; it made a really good manicotti filling too. The only suggestion I would make is to season the filling a little bit with Italian seasoning, but other than that this dish is EXCELLENT. *Update* I've now added one box of defrosted frozen spinach (rinsed and squeezed dry) and about half a pound of cooked ground sausage, and it's so delicious. It makes this really hearty and works well if you have a needs-meat significant other like I do. Otherwise I would still do the spinach for some added vitamins without the meat. The large curd cottage cheese I found out is big and soft and not small and grainy like the small curds, and the texture is unnoticeable especially if you have spinach and sausage in there, so that's only what I use now!

Smothered Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
This was my first venture with short ribs and it was incredible. The flavor is sooo good and it is perfect on top of mashed potatoes. The perfect Sunday night dinner when you don't have much to do. Though it takes a while, most of it is just sitting and trying to hold yourself back from attacking the pot when it really starts to simmer and the aroma fills the house. Try to buy boneless shortribs if you can - less fat to deal with later.

Albondigas

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
We really loved this soup. It's got a delicate tomato flavored broth and is perfectly filling with the tender meatballs and potatoes. The meatballs did add a lot of fat to the soup, even though I used super lean beef, so take the time to de-fat if you can! Or maybe I'll try baking the meatballs for a few minutes first on a rack as someone else mentioned. But for someone who hates meatballs, these were great - the texture is tender and not tough.

Flank Steak Barbecue

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Oh god this is soooo good. Went to Costco and needed to make food for a crowd and they had a great deal on flank steak and I remembered I had this recipe in my recipe box. It turned out soooo well and fed a crowd. Served it with white rice, but this would be great on a salad also.

Spanish Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
My rice didn't cook properly (mushed on the outside but hard inside) but this was such a tasty dish. The chicken needs more flavor, but it's sooo filling and delicious. The flavor in the rice is so so good.

Pork Chalupas

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
The best! i was doing the burrito thing until I just figured I'd try other people's taco salad suggestion. It was very salty, so I would cut the salt by half, especially if you're eating it on crushed tortilla chips. Covered in lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, shredded cheddar and sour cream, it's awesome. Also great in burritos, might throw some crushed tortilla chips in there also for some crunch. The beans came out slightly underdone, so I might leave it 9 hours next time and make sure to stir better.

Mom's Red Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Ok, this might replace our Thanksgiving mashed potatoes, we loved them that much. Made them without the onions and may try to replace it with something else, but the sauce is cheesy and delicious, and the whole dish comes out luxurious. Definitely needed the extra 20-30 minutes that everyone else suggested.

Sweet and Tangy Slow Cooker Bar-B-Q Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Both sweet and tangy as promised. This is really good. I thought some of the pieces of meat could have been cooked for longer as it was still a little tough, and we were sorry to not have trimmed the fat off the meat before it went in the cooker, but the tender pieces were sooooo good. Loved it served on white rice as the sauce heats up watery and delicious.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
These are awesome, but make sure you have everything lined up and ready to go - I was cooking the sugar/butter mixture and then had to scream for the fiance to help lay out the crackers. My bad :) Used crushed candy canes instead of pecans for Christmas and it was awesome. Bagged a few chunks with some Cinnamon Roasted Almonds and Frosted Pecans (from this site) and gave them to people I liked and people I want to like me :) Huge hit!
