Everybody enjoyed this dish .. I didn't have any fettuccine on hand so used penne instead and turned out just as good .. will make again but maybe add some garlic to the mix next time :)

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
Very Good and delicious .. will make again. I used baby gold potatoes instead of russets to make prep time faster, and rather then using half green and red pepper I used all red because I find the green bellpeppers to be a bit on the bitter side

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Looks like these are a hit with the family for future meatless Monday meals, in fact hubby went back for seconds .. We started this tradition about 4 yrs ago and are always looking for something new .. this was easy to prepare and I had everything on hand .. I would say the only change I made was that I had some white corn tortillas in the fridge that needed to be used up rather then buying floured ones and because my husband and older son like spicy they added jalapenos to their quesadillas .. Like one of other recipients of this recipe, I also baked in the oven at 350 .. a very good idea when trying to prepare for a family meal .. will definitely make again

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Hubby had suggested Chicken Marlsala for dinner so I knew I could count on allrecipes to give me a good one. This recipe was was easy and quick to prepare .. I had to make a couple of small changes only because I didn't have 2 ingredients on hand. One I used all purpose whole wheat flour instead of white flour and basil instead of oregano. Sense I had only two chicken breast, I split them in half length wise and pounded them thin .. As with several other reviews I doubled the recipe for the sauce. I also removed chicken from sauce and added whole wheat pasta to the mix tossing lightly with tongs .. Served with tossed green salad and small glass of the marsala wine to go with :)

Mongolian Beef II

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I had a different Mongolian beef recipe in my box, but my thought was that I had always assumed that this dish was supposed to be spicy. The other dish listed nothing of the kind, so I found this one and have to say it was delicious .. rather then serving with noodles I served with brown rice .. will definitely make again

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Made this dish for dinner tonight and it appears to be a hit .. instead of using the combination of spices listed I noticed that they were similar to Emerils Essance recipe .. I sliced the the chicken breast in half lengh wise, seasoned with the essence and pan fried in the olive oil and butter. Rather then using garlic powder in the sauce, I used chopped fresh garlic which I feel brought out more flavor .. served with couscous and a veg .. will make again

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
Like others I have also prepared this dish in the past but a different recipe. I made the following changes that many readers will find was identical to other subscribers, and some that were not. When browning the ground beef with the onion, I also added finely chopped garlic, and some seasonings ( Emeril Lagasse Essance : you can find this recipe online and you will find that those herbs and spices that are in the essance are ones that you will used quite often in your own kiichen. They also sell this premade in stores, but I prefer to make my own because I feel I have more control over just how much sodium to add and it's cheaper to make a larger batch then one small jar ). I combined the soup and milk into a measuring cup with a few drops of hot sauce for added flavor, then added to the ground beef once browned. 1 can of whole kernal corn and shredded sharp cheddar cheese was stirred into the mixture, then placed into the baking dish. I topped evenly with the frozen tater tots and the rest of cheese then baked for over 45 min in a 375 degree oven .. served with side salad .. was delicious will make again

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This was perfect for a cold evening meal. I made this soup on Halloween night not only because of our long going family tradition of " Meatless Monday" but I needed something quick before sending my little monster out to trick or treat. I used fresh bell peppers and onions rather then the frozen that was recommended and some finely chopped garlic. I didn't have any vegetable broth on hand, but I did have vegetable bullion cubes that I dissolved in hot water and I used one 7oz can of the green chilies instead of the 3- 4oz cans in the recipe. Rather then using store bought chips, I had some tortillas on hand, cut them into strips and fried in canola oil serving them on the side with the diced avocado and some sour cream. Plan on making again in the future, but with other changes, such as canned veggie broth or homemade and will puree some of the soup to make slightly thicker

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Loved this dish and will make again .. a definite keep for our meatless Monday meals. As with all the others, I salted the eggplant and let it set for a good 30 min then rinsed in cold water and dried before coating in the egg and bread crumbs .. as for the bread crumbs themselves I didn't have any on hand so I made my own with saltine and ritz crackers and seasoned with garlic salt, onion salt, dried basil and oregano. I also made my own sauce with 2 cans of tomato sauce, one can of tomato paste and the same herbs and seasonings I used in the bread crumbs. I let the dish set for a few min before serving. Steamed broccoli and garlic toast were served on the side

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Made this dish for dinner last night and it was a HIT. As with many others, I used a 16 oz bag of frozen shrimp ( that I had on hand ) which was plenty for a family of 4, ( although I should mention that my youngest is not a seafood lover and had a grilled cheese sandwich instead ) and left out the parsley, I also thought that 15 - 20 min was bit long for cooking shrimp, so I left it in oven for only 7 -8 min. My husband detected something in the sauce, but had no idea it was the dijon mustard. Served with whole wheat linguine noodles, lightly browned buttered french bread and steamed broccoli, hubby took leftovers for lunch the next day.. this is a keeper.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
As with many other reviewers, I used a lot of the family favorite veggies. I mixed the cornstarch as to the directions, but did not add veggies to the mix as the recipe had stated, instead I waited and put the cornstarch mixture in with the soy sauce and water. Served over brown rice .. plan on making again, but think I will use some of the soy sauce and or water to dissolve the cornstarch and cook garlic in with rest of veggies ..

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Made this dish over the weekend and it was a hit. Wanted to try out the new electric grill I had recived as a Christmas gift, and this was the perfect time to put it to the test. I cooked the steaks first, let them rest off to the side for about 10 min while warming hoagie rolls in oven. Sliced steaks thin, and rather then using mozzarella cheese I served with grated cheddar and pepper jack that I already had on hand, placed sandwiches back in oven on low broil til cheese melted. .. will make again.
