Delicious and Easy Mock Risotto

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
Easy to make but a little bland. This is a basic rice pilaf recipe, and I think it's better with rice. It needed quite a bit of salt at the table, and it was better with some parmesan on top.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
Easy, fast, and delicious, but a little dry. I halved the recipe and used corn chips. Next time I'll use potato chips as called for (it could have used the little bit of extra salt) and add 1/2 to 1 soup can of water (or twice that for a full recipe).

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
Even with all the cayenne and jalapenos (I used 1.5 canned), it was not as hot and spicy as I expected. But the tang of the yogurt and the overall flavor for fish tacos was very good. The consistency was just right. Instead of deep fried beer batter, I fried chunks of cod that were dredged in my favorite TexMex mix of flour, bread crumbs, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Quite good, and I will probably make it again. P.S. It's much spicier after a day or so in the fridge.

Mexican Baked Fish

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
So simple and so delicious. And the low calorie count is a bonus. The spicier the salsa the better, and we use our favorite Juanita's corn chips. I have a gas oven that runs on the cooler side, so I baked it for 25 minutes at 425. It even makes great leftovers to heat up in the microwave the next day.

Ham Salad Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
Delicious! I used green onions, dijon mustard, and jalapeno sweet hots for the relish. I chopped the ham in a food processor, which worked great. We made rollups with flour tortillas and romaine lettuce. Very tasty.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Simple and delicious. I thought 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg would be too much, but it was just right. I used regular sliced Italian bread, so there's no need to go out of your way to find thick sliced bread.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
The simplicity of this recipe and the time from fridge to table is great. When I read the review about how hot it was, I thought my Texas boyfriend and I would love it because our idea of mild or medium is hot to most people. But I have to admit, it was way too hot. It overpowered the flavor of the entire meal. I had one smaller and one larger tenderloin, and when grilled for 20 and 25 minutes respectively, they were both just a wee bit too done, but still quite juicy. We cut up the leftovers and added them to plain rice, and that was pretty good. There are a lot of pork rub recipes out there, so I'll keep looking instead of trying to modify this one.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
I used a 4.5 pound double top loin, separated into two pieces side by side. I doubled the rest of the ingredients accordingly. At 1 hour and 45 minutes the temperature was already at 160 so I immediately took it out. The pork was moist and delicious even though I let it cook just a little too long. I think it was a little heavy on the rosemary and olive oil, but the garlic was just right. The strong rosemary taste and aroma was fine for the first meal, but it didn't work so well for leftover sandwiches. Overall this is an easy and quick recipe worth repeating.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
My boyfriend has forbidden me to ever make these cookies again because we inhaled nearly the whole batch and gained five pounds on the spot. In fact I had to fight him off the cookie dough when I was spooning them onto the cookie sheet. What a fantastic recipe. All the great cookie flavors together in the perfect blend, with excellent texture and substance. I baked them 12 minutes. Positively outstanding.
