Capers and Halibut

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
This came out way too salty. I used swai fillets instead of halibut (I think any mild fish fillet will work) and seasoned them first with salt, pepper and garlic powder before putting them in the pan. DO NOT season the butter/wine mixture with salt or add the caper liquid. This put the salty factor way over the top and made it almost inedible. I served over rice so it cut the saltiness. However, I will definitely try to make this again using my less-salty version; I expect it should be wonderful.

Grilled Gulf Shark

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
This is a quick and simple recipe that can easily be complimented with other spices to fit your taste. Soaking in milk may sound strange but it gets rid of the ammonia taste that sharks sometimes have so do not pass up this step!

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
Delicious! I used 10 leaves instead of 12. I also doubled the amount of sauce. What a pleasant surprise - tasty and easy to make. Will definitely be making this again.

Yuca French Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I don't have a deep fryer so I fried them in a skillet instead - it upped the cooking to time to about 10 minutes per batch. It's tough to see the fibrous core after you've boiled them so I cut out whatver I thought was that. They came out very good...a little tough but still very tasty. We sprinkled salt on them after removing them from the oil and served with sour cream.

Cream Peas

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
I just LOVE this recipe! It's so quick and easy to throw together while you're making your other dishes. I use 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream and it comes out great. Delicious!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
DE-LICIOUS! First time making Sweet Potato Pie and this recipe is really fantastic! The only change I made was to the sugar - I used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown. And, it took much, much longer than 55-60 minutes to bake it. I had to bake mine for 1 hour 45 minutes in order for it to come out right.

Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
This was really good! A nice twist on plain old yellow squash. I would suggest that if you do not like things spicy, do not add the jalapeno. I love spiciness but it really adds a lot of heat and distracts from the rest of the flavors. The combination of the squash, bacon and onion was very tasty on its own without the jalapeno. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
DELICIOUS! The only changes I made were I did not peel the potatoes (the skin is the tastiest part!) and used sliced carrots instead of celery. After adding the milk mixture to the soup, I used my hand blender to blend it just enough where I still had some chunks of potato and carrot but enough to give it a creamier consistancy. So, so good! Will be making this again and again. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
Good! The end result is not very cobbler-like in its consistency (more cake like) but is very tasty, especially with some Cool Whip on the side. I used a mixture of peaches, strawberries (sliced) and blueberries (all fresh, not frozen). I also sprinkled brown sugar on top instead of white. I baked mine for 55 minutes in a 8x8 pan. Will make again - thanks for sharing.

Chocolate Banana Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Delicious! I used dark chocolate cake mix instead as that's what I had on hand. Batter was extremely thick, almost glue-like, when I tried to pour it into the pan. I baked mine in a greased/floured Bundt pan instead of a 9x13 pan for 35 minutes. I loved it - will be making this again.

Jamaican Oxtail with Broad Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
WOW! Flavorful and delicious! The only changes I made were using a few dashes of scotch bonnet pepper hot sauce (didn't have a pepper on hand) and I used dried thyme instead of fresh. When cooking the oxtail in the pan, make sure there are no onions, etc. with it otherwise the onions will burn. Instead of a pressure cooker, I cooked everything in my slow cooker on high for 6 hours - the meat was falling off the bone! Simply tender and delicious. I would omit the beans next time I make this - just didn't need it. I served them over hot cooked rice. Will DEFINITELY be making this delicious meal again and again!

Easy Olive Martini Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
DELICIOUS! With the exception of S&P, I doubled the rest of the ingredients. I kept a lid on it while the chicken was cooking to lock in moisture - I made it before without and it came out a little dry/overcooked. Extremely flavorful and easy - will be making this again. Thanks!

The Old Boy's Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I chopped the strawberries up (recipe gave me the impression that they remained whole) and followed recipe as is. Tart and sweet at the same time - perfection! Will definitely be making this again!!

Oat Crusted Fish

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
DELICIOUS! Easy to make, too! Cook fish over medium heat - medium/high cooks it too fast. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I seasoned the fish with salt, pepper and garlic powder before coating in flour - makes it much more flavorful. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
DELICIOUS! This is officially my favorite go-to chicken recipe. I place the chicken breast-side down so it stays even juicier. I do not measure the onion powder - I sprinkle it liberally all over. I do not include celery due to personal taste preferences. You will not be disappointed! Thanks for sharing.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
DELICIOUS! I baked mine for 9 minutes and they came out perfect. I would skip the confectioner's sugar next time as I don't think they need it. Soft, chewy and awesome! Will definitely be making again.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Kielbasa

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
DELICIOUS! Half the amount of ketchup as half is plenty. I slow-cooked this for almost 5 hours. I served it over hot rice. It tasted like General Tso's kielbasa! Will definitely be making this again.

Brussels Sprouts with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
This was really good! I used olive oil instead of butter and steamed the brussels sprouts instead of boiling them until they were fork tender (about 7-8 minutes). I also used sliced mushrooms instead of whole. Very tasty! Will definitely be making this again.

Garbanzo Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
I was a bit disappointed with this one. Came out very bland. Definitely needs salt or some shredded cheddar or mozzarella sprinkled on top. Seems like it was missing something. However, was easy and quick to throw together and quite healthy.

Salmon Tango

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
DELICIOUS! I used olive oil in place of butter. We grilled it on foil first and then directly on the grill for another minute on each side to get that "grill" flavor onto it. This came out so tasty and juicy. This might be my new fave salmon recipe! Thanks for sharing. Will definitely be making this again.
