Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: May 14, 2004
Instead of frying, I BAKED these in the oven, which took about an hour or longer, but they came out nice and crispy on the outside. I just used flour, seasoned salt, cayenne and basil, then added half water and half oil to make a batter. I will make these again the same way! Yum!

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
Quick, easy and great! I didn't bother browning the chicken before baking, just used thawed tenders and sprinkled them with cumin, pepper and minced garlic before adding the salsa and cheese. I baked for about 35-40 minutes and it came out perfect! Nice recipe with common ingredients. I recommend giving this a try.

Jalapeno Poppers I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
These are great! I added some mozzarella to the mix and dredged the peppers in flour mixed with cayenne, paprika, thyme, and garlic powder before re-dipping them in the egg, and then Italian breadcrumbs (which I used in lieu of the corn flakes). I baked them in a muffin tin, 3 to a cup, and that helped hold them together and keep the cheese in. Halfway through baking I sprayed them with Pam which helped to brown. They were very comparable to the deep fried version and I had to keep myself from eating the whole batch! They are VERY messy and TIME CONSUMING to make, however, so they will not be a regular, but as a special treat they are nice...

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2005
The best way to eat sweet potatoes! You can use any spices you like. I usually cut mine into slices as opposed to sticks and I also toss them in a ziploc bag to coat with oil and spices. Easy, healthy and delicious!!

Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
This is excellent! I halved the recipe, used a French vanilla cake mix (Mmmm) and cinnamon instead of pie spice and left out the nuts. Came out great, BUT---is even better the next day nuked in the microwave for about 30 seconds. The top gets all gooey and moist and WOW, is it ever delicious...A must try! I'm taking THIS to Thanksgiving!!!

Tater-Dipped Eggplant

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2005
I will never bread eggplant any other way! I KNEW potato flakes were good for something aside from mashed potatoes!! I added some parmesan, basil and no-salt seasoning to the mix and ommitted the salt, but next time I WILL add a little salt b/c I feel it was needed... Also, make sure you use the full amount of butter or coat the slices with it before baking, b/c I cut the amount and some of my slices would not brown on both sides after I flipped them. You could also spray these with nonfat Pam or an olive oil spray for a healthier version... In any case, these are delicious and I will use potato flake breading for EVERYTHING! Can't wait to try it on fish!!!

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
Okay---the FLAVOR on this is GREAT, but the cooking directions seem wrongWRONGwrong!!! I cooked this for nearly 40 minutes uncovered and the rice was still crispy and uncooked! I think if you cooked this for 25 minutes COVERED, it would come out perfect! As I said, the FLAVOR is great. Don't leave out the lemon. I used parm instead of feta. I will definitely make this again---with the LID ON... ;-)

Quick Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Can I just say WOW. I never knew fresh gnocchi could be this easy. Granted, dough is always a pain to work with, but this was very simple and took no time at all. I recommend being heavy handed with seasonings and adding seasoning salt, garlic powder, rosemary and Italian seasoning to the dough. As suggested by others, I would add some Romano next time myself. And I would double this recipe if feeding another person, seeing as I ate the whole batch myself no problem! They were delicious with a bottled Alfredo sauce! Bon appetit!

Jollof Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2004
The flavor of this is WONDERFUL, but there were a few things I had issues with. First of all, it needs to be pointed out that you need a HUUUUUGE saucepan, like a Dutch oven to make this with, or you will end up with a HUGE mess like I did. Also, cutting a whole chicken up into 8 pieces is not as easy as it sounds. I think I will use chicken PIECES next time. I subbed peas for the carrots and used jarred tomato sauce (i.e. pasta sauce) instead of the paste, and only one can of tomatoes. It came out great (despite what I mentioned above)!!!! This is a good one pot meal and you can vary your vegetables--very versatile. I will make this again (in a bigger pot :)

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: May 1, 2003
Oh my Goodness!! This recipe is AWESOME! And I don't even really LIKE Mexican food so much...I used half a packet of taco seasoning and added some cumin, chili powder and red and black pepper, with a can of garlic-and-onion-diced-tomatoes, half a can of mushrooms, and the green onions all simmered w/ the ground turkey for about half an hour...I also used enchilada sauce, spooning a little on the bottom of the pan first, then layered as the recipe directed, using cottage chz instead of ricotta, topping off w/ the rest of the enchilada sauce and just a little sprinkling of shredded mozzarella and shredded cheddar. I covered this with foil for most of the bake time, uncovering the last 10 mins...Mmmm! Wonderful! I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for the recipe!! :)

Cavatelli and Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
This IS sort of bland, but I cooked the pasta in chicken broth and added the broccoli to that the last few minutes, then added the garlic and sauteed the whole concoction before adding Romano Parmesan and red pepper. For some reason, I could not stop eating this, so-- bland or not, I thought it was pretty good!! The cheese and red pepper really add something. Plus it is sooooo simple...I will make again.

Granny's Cherokee Casserole

Reviewed: May 20, 2003
I really like the mix of flavors and texture in this recipe. Very creamy! I altered the recipe a little...Browned ground turkey w/ seasoned salt, italian spice, cumin and paprika, along w/ the onion and some fresh garlic, and then threw in the tomatoes, cooked rice and soup, letting it simmer for a few minutes, before adding shredded cheddar to melt. I did not bake this in the oven; just did it all on the stovetop. It came out great! Very easy and quick, using simple ingredients. Will make again...

Alice's Sour Cream Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2003
This is a good recipe. I actually made this on the stovetop as opposed to the microwave. I simmered the chicken in water w/ bouillon for some added flavor, then threw in some seasoned salt, pepper and paprika with the sour cream and parmesan. I also threw in some peas for color and simmered for about another five minutes. I totally forgot the white wine and it was still really tasty! I served this over rice. This is good for a super fast, super easy, tasty chicken dish. I will make this again. Thanks!

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
Not bad! I added chopped green onions, a tbs or so of milk, half a roma tomato and some garlic powder to the mix, and subbed mozzarella for parmesan, then topped it with a little cheddar at the end of cooking, and folded over omelet style. It was quite good, and filling!

Egg and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
Very good. Quick and easy. I too left out the butter and it wasn't missed. Also, I skipped the refrigerating overnight part. These are quite rich, but tasty.

Spanish Rice Original

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
This was pretty good. Nice flavor though a little salty. Definitely don't need to ADD salt to this one...I added some diced chicken to make it a one pot meal. I liked it with shredded cheese and sour cream on top. Mmmm... Oh-- and I used brown rice so it took FOREVER to get done but it came out fine.

Kerry's French Toast

Reviewed: May 8, 2003
This recipe inspired a variation: I spread strawberry cream cheese on a slice of bread, then sprinkled with a little cinnamon, then brown sugar, then spread another slice of bread with a little of the cream cheese and formed a sandwich. Then I coated it in an egg/milk mixture and browned it in olive oil! Deeeeeelicious!!! Thanks for the inspiration, Kerry!!! :)

Colombian Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
I didn't use a whole chicken, but rather a couple of boneless, skinless breasts so my measurements were a little different and I am not big on exact measurements anyway, but the basic flavor I am sure was the same. Oh, and I had no red pepper so omitted those. I used freshly juiced OJ from my Juiceman and I thought the flavor was very nice. Different, but nice. I think maybe some white rice would have sopped up the sauce very well, but I didn't have any. Never having had Colombian food, I can't comment on that, but overall this was pretty good and easy to make.

Mara's Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
These were pretty easy to make. I substituted ketchup for the tomato juice, and added some garlic powder, dried mustard and worchestershire to the sauce. The chops came out nice and tender with a good flavor. Overall, a decent recipe...
