Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
This recipe was a pretty good base recipe! I used 3 cloves of garlic and added some diced green peppers and 2 seeded & chopped roma tomatoes which added nice flavor and color. I added salt to taste and ended up using about 1 tsp of salt. I served this with garlic bread sticks & a salad.

Louisiana Shrimp Creole II

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This was good! I substituted green onions for regular onion because that what I had on hand. The sauce thickened up nicely due to the cornstarch in the recipe. Great overall flavor with a nice "kick"! This is the perfect weeknight recipe - quick & easy. I served the shrimp creole over brown rice along with a green salad and crusty rolls to mop up the delicious sauce!

Lemon Horseradish New Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Delicious & robust! I used idaho russet potatoes that I had on hand - which I peeled and chopped. I added some fresh chopped parsley before serving. I was concerned that the horsradish would be too strong/spicy for the kids. That was not the case! The horseradish was mild and just added a good "kick"! I made these potatoes to accompany roasted chicken & baby carrots. It was the perfect addition!

Shrimp and Feta Cheese Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This recipe was fantastic! I did make a few small changes. I added 1/2 cup of wine(chardonay) instead of the 1 tbs the recipe calls for. I also omitted the 3rd tbs of olive oil since I had plently of cooking liquid to cook the tomatoes & spices in. I only let the tomatoes simmer 5 mins before adding the shrimp back in & assembling the dish. This prevented the fresh tomatoes from breaking down too much & becoming a "sauce" instead of diced tomatoes. I seasoned to taste with salt and pepper. I also added a good handful of chopped Italian flat leaf parsley at the end which gave it a nice burst of color and freshness.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
Awesome chicken recipe! A made a few minor modifactions - I cooked the chicken in 2 tbs of EVOO. I added 1 tbs of butter when I added the lime juice at the end. Chicken had just the right amount of heat from the cayenne pepper - just enough to add a little kick. Loved the tang from the lime juice! This recipe is a keeper! I'll be making again soon!

New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
These potatoes were absolutely delicious! A bit of a splurge considerating all the butter but worth it! I added a little more green onion than called for (1/4 cup). Other than that, we followed the recipe exactly. Will definintely make again!

Porcupines

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
This recipe is really good! I've made this a few times now & modified it a bit. Instead of browning the meatballs, I just place them in the pan with sauce to cover. I also add 1 tsp of celery salt & 1/2 tsp. of black pepper to the tomato sauce/water mixture. I like to serve the porcupines over rice or with baked potatoes with a nice green salad for a yummy, complete meal!

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2006
Good recipe! I used 3 boneless chicken breasts and cut each lengthwise for a total of 6 pieces. I did not have to pound them since they were thin enough after cutting. I added 1/4 cup white wine to the sauce for extra flavor. The sauce was delicious spooned over the chicken as well as the rice that I served on the side.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2005
Excellent soup! I used Italian Spicy sausage since we like our soup spicy! I used 2 cloves of garlic as opposed to 1, and added one small chopped onion while browning the sausage. I rinsed and drained the beans before adding them to the soup. I also used a whole bag of fresh baby spinach since it basically wilts down to nothing! Delicious!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
I wasn't too crazy about these ribs although my husband and 2 yr old son loved them! I followed the recipe exactly (except made 4 servings instead of 8. I didn't care for the flavor of the sauce. I'm not sure if it was the oregano, but to me the sauce had more of an Italian sauce taste than a BBQ sauce. The ribs were very tender though...fell right off the bone!

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts III

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
Excellent! I've been looking for a good bacon wrapped water chestnut recipe and this is it! I did cut the sauce ingredients in half and it was still saucy enough. I plan on making this recipe a Christmas tradition in our home. However, this recipe is good year around!

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
I tbought the recipe was okay. I used round steak as called for, but the meat was a little too tough for my taste. I thought the marinade had great flavor. I might try this again using top sirlion as oppossed to round steak.
