Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
Save your steak for something else! I made it the way it was written and it was a thick gooey mess even before adding the broccoli. There was nothing to steam the broccoli in so I added more broth...and more broth...to finally cook the broccoli. Needed more Soy and pretty much everything else to add flavor. It was just a sweet gooey mess of bland flour, meat and broccoli. Went to suggestions here and added more flavor before serving. Still not a winner in my house and a waste of expensive meat.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
Great easy meal! I took 9 frozen chicken breasts (4 hungry guys and me, so 2 each and 1 for me) and defrosted in the microwave for about 15 minutes with a few glugs of Olive Oil, salt, pepper and minced Garlic (I cheated and added it from the jar) and some butter to make it stick. (You can leave the kitchen, or in my case, the house for 30 minutes and work out during this time!) Breasts all coated well and thawed, dip into mixture as stated but also added 1 cup of crushed Corn Flakes to give it more crunch and a dash of Cayenne Pepper and Garlic Salt. Chopped fresh Basil, because I have it in my garden and love it! Okay for you people that HATE when someone changes the recipe; there wouldn't be any comments if no one changed it to their liking! :) Topped with some Mozzarella cheese the last 10 minutes and turned up to 375. DON'T OVERCOOK! It was moist and delicious! Served with Seasoned Broccoli and Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes.

Tater Tot Casserole II

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Yum! You gotta try subbing Cheddar Cheese or Nacho Cheese Soup instead of one of the other soups! Amazing! I did add some chopped onion and garlic while browning the meat and added a layer of frozen mixed vegetables and instead cooked on 400 degrees for 30 minutes and the taters browned nice and crispy. I didn't understand why it needed to cook for 1 hour when the only thing that needed to cook were the Tater Tots? Tossed a handful of shredded mexican cheese on top! I let everyone season with a seasoned salt & pepper blend at the table for their own taste. I added a photo of the glorious outcome!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Wow! This was superb! I made this in less than 30 minutes after work and it tasted like it took hours. I read many of the reviews and took some hints from each. I did not have Sherry so I substituted Pinot Grigio. I used about 3 cups of mushrooms that I had on hand before they went bad and it was perfect. Added a Tablespoon of minced garlic and about 3 Tablespoons of Corn Starch and some said to add cream but I didn't have any so .... I used a couple of splashes of Sugar Free Italian Sweet Cream Cofeemate and that made it awesome! Not too sweet, not too bold. This is a keeper! Thanks!

Cuban Goulash

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
I was looking for something "different" and decided to try this. I had all the ingredients but after reading ALL the reviews, I decided to embellish. I am amazed that some would add water and then claim no flavor! Really? Duh!! Added to the recipe as posted...Cumin, Sazon and Italian seasonings and went ahead and salt and peppered. Added 2 cups Italian diced tomatoes and 1 can mild Rotel and a couple of splashes of V-8 juice. Diced up a sweet potato I had as well for added sweetness. I threw in some Elbow Macaroni and a handful of Quinoa and cooked it right in the same huge covered skillet which soaked up the juice nicely. No need to cook noodles separate and dirty up more pots! The pasta and quinoa is so much more flavorful cooked right in with the recipe! This was FANTASTIC on our 1st 2013 COLD Florida day (32 degrees) :)

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
Pork chops were moist and delicious (boneless chops seasoned with Montreal Steak Seasoning) - cooked for 40 minutes until they reached 160 degrees. Used Granny Smith Green Apples sliced into 1/8ths and they kind of lost their flavor (I didn't peel the skins off and they kept intact). I used Trader Joe's Spiced Apple Cider and Pinot Grigio White Wine. I know, I know, I should not change the recipe but I ran out of Sherry! A bit of Spiced Apple Cider and Cornstarch to thicken. Added raisins as another suggested and they loved that! Served over mashed potatoes.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
Sooo Darn Good! I marinated a 4 lb. pork loin for 4 DAYS in fridge a zip lock with aged Villa Manodori Balsamic Vinegar which is a sweet balsamic from Williams Sonoma and Montreal Steak Seasoning and some olive oil and this was perfect! Not vinegary at all as I think might be with a cheap brand. Cooked resting on top of sliced sweet potatoes and onion slices so as not to burn on the bottom. Served onto a big bed of white rice with a can of French Onion Soup and a splash of red wine added to make more gravy. So juicy and tender! My husband, college sons and friends ate it up! Thanks for making me the hero tonight!

Spanish Flan

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
EXCELLENT FLAN! Tips: Use a Bundt pan (with a hole in the middle). This keeps it from being under cooked in the center and creates a pool in the center area for the wonderful caramelized sugar when you turn it over. Keep your Bundt pan warm on the stove burner or in the oven while you caramelize the sugar, so that when you pour your caramelized sugar into it, the caramel flows easier around the pan. Use a Bain Marie (water in pan) and place in oven while preheating in a sturdy pan such as a turkey roaster with high sides. Place the prepared flan pan into it being careful water level is not too high to splash into flan pan. Use a blender to blend the eggs, milks and vanilla before you start on caramelizing. I added 5 eggs and it is the perfect density! When melting sugar, add a 1/2 tsp or so of lemon juice and swirl often until a golden brown liquid; then quickly pour into warmed Bundt pan and turn from side to side to cover the pan bottom and part way up the sides. My Sicilian Grandparents in their 90's LOVE IT and it is really quite easy once you get the hang of it!

Forgot to add, you can sprinkle with grated cheese on top. These is a wonderful meatless recipe and so economical. Hope you enjoy!
