Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
Very nice marinade for fajitas. I made this with beef and marinated for 6 hours or so. I would probably double the cumin next time I made it, but otherwise I'd leave it as is. I think this would have been even better with chicken. The customized recipe in my recipe box has the cumin doubled.

Chicken Tortellini Soup with Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
I made exactly as written and found it very bland and way too much liquid for the amount of tortellini and veggies. Before I served it I decided to double up on the broccoli, but that still wasn't enough to give it any kind of body. I felt the cream of chicken soup added nothing to this recipe and definitely wouldn't use that again. If I was to make again, I'd double up on the carrots, broccoli and tortellini for sure. An extra cup or two of chicken wouldn't hurt either. I would also probably cut back the water to 2 cups or less. Pepper would be a nice addition, but I'm ok with leaving it out and letting the individuals decide on how much they want at the table. As written, we had to salt our bowls because this was very watery. That was disappointing especially when you look at the sodium levels already in this dish. This soup does have elements of greatness, but I feel the proportions are way off.

White Bean and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
I made this tonight for a side. My missus has a thing for kidney beans, so I used them instead of Cannellini beans. The other thing I changed was I add some green peppers just for color. This was a great dish and a perfect side. I will make again.

Diane's Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
I came across this nice delish dish on the lead up to St. Patrick's day, but waited until today to make it with a baked ham. This might be intended as an Irish dish, but it's perfect for any meat and tater day.

Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
I made this for a cold chef's salad. I subbed in dried basil, but otherwise followed the recipe. I marinated for 45 minutes or so. This came out perfect and was excellent on the salad.

Pan-Fried Asparagus with Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
We absolutely loved this simple recipe. The only change I made was that I doubled the onions. I will definitely make this dish many times.

Cucumbers in Sour Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
Wonderful recipe. With the exception of adding onions, I followed the ingredients exactly. I did not soak the cukes overnight and I don't really think that part is necessary. I will make again.

Braised Corned Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
This is my first time making a corned beef brisket and I'm happy my friends from the buzz recommended this recipe. I followed Baking Nana's advise and triple-foiled the brisket. It was fork tender and tasted wonderful. I had a small brisket of 2.5 pounds and this was done in 4 hours. I don't think you could over-cook it using this method. Thanks for helping make my first brisket perfect!

The Irish Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
I made as directed and they came out perfect, although it never did bubble as the recipe stated. My family thoroughly enjoyed this dish. When I make again, I will be increasing the amount of onions, otherwise I will leave it as is. Thanks!

Jalapeno Ranch Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
This is wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used homemade ranch dressing from their own buttermilk packet. I made this to put on beef fajitas, but it will be excellent for dipping just about anything into. Thanks!

Pickled Garlic - Spicey

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
My 3 weeks are finally up. I really liked this and will make nice munchy food for me. I do not own a spice bag so just dumped them in and that seemed to work ok. I also added in some jalepenos. I liked them in there, but would probably put in more next time. I did the full 5 minuted boil and I think the texture was about right. The color was a little green, but that was ok by me. I expected it to be more tart. I would probably use cider vinegar next time.

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
The Rueben is one of my favorite things to order at Ma & Pop style restaurants, but I've never made one at home until today. With all the other Rueben recipes out there, I'm glad I picked this one to try first. It's just how I like them. Thanks!

Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
Having never had Sauerbraten before, I really didn't know what to expect from this recipe. I tried it simply because the recipe looked interesting. I followed exactly as written and was happy with the taste. If I make it again, the only change I would make would be to simmer uncovered, at least part of the time, so that the gravy would thicken up a bit more than it did covered.

Venison Gyros

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
My second time using this recipe with beef and I love the flavor it gives it. Perfect for gyros. I don't believe I would change a thing.

Amaretto Sauce for Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
I cut the entire recipe in half for feeding four, and I think I still had enough sauce for twice that many, or more. I boiled this for longer than the 10 minutes that the recipe required, but it was still overpowering with amaretto alcohol flavor. I think this recipe would be ok for our tastes if the amaretto was cut in half in proportion to the rest of the recipe. I used a good quality amaretto.

Superfast Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
This was a big hit. I layed the asparagus out on parchment paper in a pan, sprinkled with Old Bay and baked for 10 minutes. I removed and sprinkled with an Italian cheese mixture and baked for an addition 3 minutes. Excellent. It don't get any simpler than this.
