Kashmiri Garam Masala

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Thanks for sharing. I like to try different garam masala recipes and this one was tops! This is the first one that I tried that used black cumin seeds and fennel. Interesting combination of flavors. I will have to work on incorporating them into my favorite garam masala recipe.

Fast Salmon with a Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Delicious! I cooked the salmon in the oven and followed the recipe for the sauce to the letter. It was so good that my husband told me he would wash the dishes, even though he worked overtime. I know it's just so he can sneak more of the salmon and the wonderful sauce! I imagine that grilled salmon is even better. I will definitely make this again.

Skillet-Grilled Catfish

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Delicious spice mix that is perfect for catfish. I didn't do this on the grill since it started pouring down rain so I prepared it on top of the stove. I also sprinkled some of the seasoning mix on both sides of the fish. I served this with greens (mustard&kale), potato salad, and cornbread. I will make this again, and the spice mix is definitely a keeper.

Honey Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
Very tasty. We really enjoyed this dish. I put orange bell peppers, red onions, mushrooms, and green onions on separate skewers and brushed them with italian dressing rather than use the same marinade as the shrimp. Since the worcestershire sauce plays a dominant role in the recipe, I recommend using a good brand like Lea & Perrins. I served the kabobs with steamed rice.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Terrific marinade. I didn't use any salt and used 1/2 the amount of oil in the recipe. For my kabobs, I used chicken and shrimp on separate skewers, and they were delicious. Everyone enjoyed them.

Crispy Cucumbers and Tomatoes in Dill Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
I followed the recipe as written the first time I made it and thought it was good. The dill adds a nice flavor to the salad and provides a twist on the traditional oil and vinegar based cucumber salad. The second time I made it, I used a white balsamic vinegar that I got from Trader Joe's, substituted zucchini for one of the cucumbers, and added a bit more dill and about 4 chopped basil leaves. This salad can be altered by the simple addition of a different herb or a combination of herbs, and it is great served with grilled chicken or BBq ribs.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
Enjoyed this. I used 1/4 cup of panko breadcrumbs with 1/4 tsp of thyme and oregano added to it. Melted the butter and mixed with the breadcrumbs before adding it to the salmon.

Cream Biscuits from Rosa's Kitchen

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
I love these biscuits. They are light and have a melt in your mouth texture. I rarely make biscuits with butter or shortening anymore because it's much easier to pour and stir in cream than to cut in butter or shortening. These biscuits also don't require a light touch and aren't as finicky as biscuits made with shortening, and they benefit from the longer knead. I picked that tip up from Cooks Illustrated when I was trying to find out why the biscuits would crumble after baking.

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
Terrific recipe. I followed it pretty much as written except I didn't have enough ground beef so I added in Italian sausage. I used the full teaspoon of sugar and thought it was a nice addition that added just a hint of sweetness. I used a chili garlic sauce that I had on hand and it doesn't contain any sugar. Some reviewers stated that they thought the recipe was to sweet this could be because some brands of chili sauce, like Heinz contain high fructose corn syrup and are sort of sweet on their own. The next time I make this I am going to add celery and green peas. ****************** Recently made this with Mexican chorizo and used a full cup of rice. The chorizo really jazzed it up! The next sausage I'm going to use in the recipe is andouille.

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
Fantastic recipe. Added all of the optional ingredients. I used the marinade for chicken kebabs. I used boneless, skinless chicken breast and marinated them for two hours before cutting into chunks for the kebabs. I set about a 1/4 cup aside and used it to brush on the kebabs when they were about done. The kebabs had pineapple on them and the marinade did wonders for it. Really good recipe.

Classic CRISCO® Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
I've used this recipe for many years. The dry crumbly dough problem is easily solved by adding additional water, a teaspoon or so at a time. The type of flour used, as well as the method used to measure the flour, play a role in how much water will be needed. Scooping the flour out of the bag and leveling is not the same as spooning the flour into the measuring cup, as scooping tends to pack the flour into the cup and you will wind up with more flour than you would if you spoon and level. Thus you will need more water. The version of the recipe that I have says 5 - 7 tablespoons of cold water which takes into consideration the varying differences that may arise with flour type/brand and measuring technique.

Grilled Zucchini II

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
Tasty and easy. Replaced zucchini with eggplant which has out produced everything in the garden. I prepared mine in my grill pan on the stove. Added a couple small yellow and orange bellow peppers. Topped the finished dish with fresh grated Parmesan cheese.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I made some changes to this recipe to lower some of the fat content but I still think it was delicious and deserved five stars. Instead of using regular mayo and butter, I substituted fat free mayo and light butter. I also sprayed the fillets with olive oil cooking spray before placing them under the broiler. Since tilapia cooks quickly, I didn't turn them at all. I let them cook 3 or 4 minutes (oven rack on second slot from the top), added the cheese mixture, and removed them when the cheese started to brown.

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I used apple pie spice instead of the pumpkin. Also, I used dark brown sugar and only used 1/4 cup of water. I added the spice and 1/2 the sugar at the beginning of the cook cycle. After the apples had softened considerably, I tasted the sauce and added in the remaining sugar. The sauce, made with apple pie spices, taste the same as southern fried apples without the extra calories from the butter, and they are a wonderful addition to an old fashioned breakfast of sausage or ham, eggs, grits, and toast.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Really good. I roasted the potatoes uncovered in my NuWave Oven and then added the honey butter during the last 5 minutes of cooking time. For the butter mixture, I placed a thinly sliced clove of garlic in a small dish along with the butter, honey, and dry mustard and heated the mixture in the microwave just enough to soften the garlic, about 30 seconds. I served the potatoes with roasted chicken, greens and cornbread. A very good combination.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
These were really good. I substituted the 1/4 cup of butter for 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. I also omitted the garlic salt and used one thinly sliced garlic clove. I only used a 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. I salted the water when I cooked the green beans and didn't add any additional salt to the recipe. I sauteed the garlic in the oil and butter for a minute or so over low heat to keep it from browning, and then added the rest of the sauce ingredients. Instead of using another pan. I cooked the green beans first, made the sauce in the pan, and then tossed the green beans with the sauce in the pan. The fresh basil really makes this dish outstanding so I recommend using fresh instead of dried.

Grandma's Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Quick and easy, and a big hit for today's lunch! I had potatoes leftover from the Honey Roasted Red Potatoes recipe from this site, so I used those and added them in with the corn. I omitted the salt from the recipe since the bacon is already salty and my potatoes were cooked in salted water. I added the half and half to the pot without warming it first. I lowered the heat and added it, when it started to simmer, I turned the stove off. The key is to not let it come to a boil since that may cause the half and half to separate and make the chowder watery. To keep a skin from forming on your chowder as it cools, pour it into a serving dish and place a piece of plastic wrap or waxed paper directly on top of the chowder.

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
Very easy and tasty recipe. I unthawed the broccoli and then gently squeezed some of the water out of it. I sauteed 1/2 an onion and 2 sliced garlic cloves in the oil for a couple of minutes, then added the broccoli. I topped my second serving with a little fresh grated parmesan cheese. This recipe is a great way to prepare frozen broccoli. I had intended on not buying any more frozen broccoli because I usually wind up throwing it out whether it's been cooked or has grown old in the freezer. Now that I've found a good way to prepare it, I will buy more.

Smashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Tasty even without the 1 cup of cheese. I just used 1/4 cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese. I also added 3 cloves of garlic to the pan with the cauliflower. I used one can of chicken broth and made up the difference with water. I poured off all but a 1/2 cup or so of the liquid when the cauliflower was almost soft and let it cook all the way down. After mashing in the pan, I continued to cook the cauliflower to get out the extra moisture. I finished the dish with a little butter, sliced green onion tops, and black pepper. Will definitely make this again. To get a texture even closer to mashed potatoes but without all the carbs, add one quartered potato to the recipe and cook and mash along with the cauliflower.

Sauceless Garden Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Very tasty and creative. I replaced the feta with ricotta salatta (the Italian version of Feta) and used a sweet yellow onion. This recipe is a great way to use up veggies from the garden, and it is a really good dish to serve for meatless Mondays.
