Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Very good. Received recipe this morning and decided to make for brunch. I did not have sour cream, but I substituted plain yogurt, which worked except it made the eggs 'weep' a bit on the plate. Cut fresh basil from my garden and fixed dish in no time. My husband even liked it and he seldom will eat eggs not fried or simply scrambled.

Indian Rice (Pulao)

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Excellent rice dish for Indian Meal of Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori and Raita also from AllRecipes.com. The Cardamon is an expensive seasoning. I could not find cardamon seeds at my grocery store, so I used ground cardamon. Also added 1 teaspoon of chicken bullion along with the water and yogurt in lieu of the salt. Used olive oil instead of vegetable shortening to cook onions and spices. Did not use saffron threads because I do not like this spice. Saffron is too over powering for my taste. Used Indian Basmati rice in place of regular long-grain white rice. I cooked the rice in my enameled covered cast iron dutch oven with three terry cloth towels tucked under the lid to absorb moisture; this worked well.

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Made the recipe for dinner guests and everyone really liked the dish. Definitely will make again. I stuck to the recipe ingredients as given, but did not completely wipe off the marinade before grilling and did not spray with olive oil spray, which I didn't seem to need. I grilled the chicken as I always do without the indirect heat method which seemed like a lot of bother. Served with Indian Rice (Pulao), Raita (Indian Salad) also from Allrecipes.com and precooked Naan bread purchased at the grocery store.

Raita

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Excellent recipe. I used with a complete Indian meal including Indian Rice (Pulao) and Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori also from AllRecipes.com. I omitted the Paprika. Our dinner guest emailed the next day asking for the Raita recipe; her husband loved it!

Grilled Turkey Legs

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
Good summer recipe for turkey. My changes: Not a fan of soda pop, I substituted lime seltzer and fresh lime juice for the carbonated beverage. Added three slices of Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce to the boil mixture in place of crushed red peppers for smoky flavor. Used McCormick's Grill Mates BBQ Seasoning instead of the steak seasoning. As for grilling technique, I opted to use a grill pan with holes instead of placing onion directly on grill, which many reviewers said was messy. Of course, it would be! Place cooked onion slices in the grill pan, add the seasoned turkey legs and then drizzle with the honey. Cooked about 20 minutes on grill as directed. Yummy, yummy. Defintely will make this again and have shared the recipe with family and friends.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Absolutely delicious, so flavorful and not watery. Followed recipe exactly with few exceptions: Cooked in slow cooker on high for 5 hours instead of low. Did not have red pepper, but this would have added color. Used lots of diced home smoked ham instead of the ham and bacon. Very, very good. Served with grilled chicken. I shared some the next day with a neighbor despite the protests of my greedy husband!

Tangy Shrimp Appetizer Skewers

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
Excellent taste and easy to make. I sliced the pears ahead of time and squeezed lemon juice on them to keep from turning brown.
