Taco Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2014
Excellent recipe as is, but I did change some to give it a more taco-like flavor. I added a dash or two of cayenne pepper and a couple shakes of black pepper. I also added in about an 1/8 of a teaspoon of cumin. Lacking chips, I opted for a soft shell taco and this was excellent. I will definitely make again. ***Update*** My better half was not here when I made this, but she had it as leftovers the next day. She is a bit of a taco salad fan, perhaps even fanatic. She said that this was the best she has ever had, and we've had zillions. We served this over Nacho Cheese Doritos chips on day 2. One side note: I feel this recipe serves more than 2. More like 3 or 4. Thanks!

Monkey Bread Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
Great recipe ShoreCook! Instead of the cherries, I used maple sausage. I had fully cooked the sausage first and did the kabobs on a gas grill using a grilling mat. That worked fantastic. I won't lie, the whole procedure is a bit tedious and messy, but the end result is definitely worth it. When everyone finally found their way out of the campers, they were greeted with this. They loved it and asked me to do it again, and I will, but with help!

Easy Chicken Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2014
I made the marinade as directed and thought it needed more lime. I probably had 4 or 5 tablespoons in it by the time it was done. I also added maybe an 1/8 teaspoon of salt. We liked this very much on our chicken.

Matt's Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
Real good. I did this in a foil tray on the grill. When they were all done, I removed from the liquid and grilled just until I had grill marks. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written.

Grilled Avocados

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
We found these fairly bland, but I like the basis. When I try again, I will slice, and season the slices individually to get a bit more flavor. I think Cajun would be good on this.

Classic Pickled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
I love this recipe. I made a batch with the recipe as written and made another with jalapenos. Both were fantastic. The brine has a perfect taste for me, but it could be easily customized for individual tastes.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2014
Excellent recipe. I did cut the butter in half and used a full pint of half and half instead of heavy cream for the healthier aspect. This dish would have been even more fantastic if I would have stuck to the recipe with the butter and cream. I also added in half an onion, half a red pepper and half a green pepper shortly before adding the Parmesan. The onion I have to have, the peppers were pretty much just for looks and texture. I also added in a couple shakes of cayenne pepper which I think really added to the flavor. The base recipe needs none of the improvements that I made, but I did like them with it. I will make again.

Easy and Healthy Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
4 and a half stars. I feel that salt and pepper are an option in every recipe and as one reviewer wrote, most of the flavor is from the sauce, so make sure you have a good one before you move on. I liked the way it came out except it was on the watery side from the spinach. I will most likely make this again, but I will remove the foil half way through the bake time.

Crustless Caramelized Onions and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
I used this recipe as a base for my veggie quiche and it was excellent. I will use this again. Besides the veggies, what I did change was that I added 1/2 cup of flour and this made it pretty light and fluffy. Also, after I sprayed my pan with Pam, I dusted it with flour. The quiche came out clean and neat and nothing stuck to the pan. I strongly recommend doing that.

Summer Kale, Avocado, Mango, and Chickpea Salad with Citrus Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
A very good, gentle tasting salad. For me, I would prefer a bit more bitterness in the dressing, but for my family it was perfect.

Kick'N Chicken with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
I made the recipe as directed but used poultry seasoning. That was simply wrong for this recipe. I wish I would have read the reviews before I had made it. I plan to make again using a different seasoning and adding some jalapenos to the salsa, and maybe a bit of lime.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2014
The flavor from this was very mellow, hardly distinguishable. However, it did not detract from the chicken either, which is a good thing.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
Excellent just as written. If you want a big clam taste, I would recommend the addition of clam base.

Slow Cooker Bacon-Ranch Beer-Can Turkey

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
I doubled the amount of ranch per butter for under the skin, and increased the sprinkled butter over top some, but not a lot. I did this because another reviewer said that they could not taste the ranch. With my increases, the taste of the ranch was faint and I felt it more increased the saltiness, which was not really desired. However, the overall taste of this turkey breast was wonderful and the breast was juicy. I would not increase the ranch over what this recipe calls for again. I have to admit that half-way through the cooking procedure I was a bit skeptical. It really didn't smell that great. But when the time was right, the flavor was there. However, I wouldn't quite rate this 4 stars, but more like 4.6 or so, just enough to tip it to 5. A turkey, slow cooked looks pale, mushy and unappealing. Add bacon and it looks worse. After it was fully cooked, I put this under the broiler to brown up just a bit. I feel this recipe needs that extra step. Don't expect a big ranch flavor with this recipe because you won't find it. But you will find a nice balanced flavor that yields a tender juicy bird.

LC'S Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
This is a pretty danged good base recipe. I would like them crisper than what this recipe gives me, so I think next time I will pan fry as this recipe calls for, but finish them off in the oven.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
I followed the recipe exactly and the procedure worked flawlessly, however, we were lukewarm about the flavors in this. I think this recipe is perfect and needs no alteration, but it just wasn't "us", if that makes sense?

Best Pork Chop Marinade

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
Excellent marinade. Came out perfect. I found that this was enough for four small chops. I used a vacuum sealer marinade attachment to speed up the marinade time and that worked great for this recipe.

Spinach Lasagna II

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
Wonderful recipe. It was quick and easy to make with great results. I did make my own pasta sauce rather than use a packet, but otherwise that was the only change. I think next time I may remove the foil the last 15 minutes, just to brown up the cheese a bit.

Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins

Reviewed: May 6, 2014
Very good tasting muffins. For some reason, mine got a little big, so they weren't real pretty. On top of that, when I pulled them from the oven, my grip slipped just as I was going to set them down, so they went flat too. In spite of all of the problems that I created for this recipe, they were fantastic and I am pretty sure that I will be making them again. Thanks Cheerios!
