Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
Made this exactly as stated, and it was a hit! I think I will try this on the slow cooker next time, for some real tender beef.

The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
I would have to agree with the title of this recipe! It truly is the best. I made a few tweaks based on my lack of time, and sautéed onions, green peppers, and garlic. Then, I put everything in the slow cooker and set it on low for 4 hours. I also added zucchini, and frozen okra. It was perfect! Thank you for a fabulous recipe!

Authentic Chinese Steamed Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
4 stars for me because it was an easy prep. I used a whole tilapia and it was awesome. I would add some ginger and scallions in the cavity of the fish to make the flavor really seep inside. Will certainly be making this again.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
One of the best baked pork chops ever! I made a few changes. I got the thick pork chops, seasoned them with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Let it sit overnight in the fridge. Followed the flour-egg-bread crumbs instructions. Then let it bake for 1.5 hours in the oven. I opted not to add the mushroom sauce over it while in the oven, instead offered it on the side, all warmed up (over low heat in a saucepan.) Served with white rice and corn on the side.

Simple But Awesome Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Simple, yet awesome! I did take some of the suggestions and added some garlic powder on both sides of the pork chop. I put 1/2 tbsp on butter on the foil, placed the chop, and the other half on the top of the pork chop, then added the oil and Worcestershire sauce. I prepared this 1 hour before and let the packets sit in the fridge to marinate before putting it in the oven. It was great on white rice. The liquid was absorbed by the rice perfectly! A definite keeper! Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
Easy! I've tried about 5 other Strawberry-Banana smoothie combo in Allrecipes, and this by far tops the list. I made a few changes based on what I had on hand. I use fresh bananas, and low fat vanilla yogurt. The kids love it! They practically beg me to make this every single day. I can't get them to eat fresh strawberries, but this works much better! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Sesame Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
This was really good. I followed the recipe precisely. A word of caution, I didn't have enough tilapia, so I decided to use some salmon as well. But the salmon didn't go well with this recipe. Stick with Tilapia. You won't regret it!

Roasted Vegetable Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
This was a good, easy recipe to build on indeed. I made a few changes. I rubbed olive oil all over the chicken, and instead of salt and pepper to season, I used Seasoning Salt instead. Then I mixed up the veggies in a bowl and added some Seasoning salt and tossed it prior to adding it in the pan with the chicken. I replaced the water with 2 cups chicken stock. This turned up with lots of liquid at the end, but that's fine by us. Now, I didn't have a roasting pan, and I used my glass lasagna pan. This prolonged the cook time to 3 hours instead of 2. I used a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temp was 165F. Basting regularly is a must to keep it moist. Thank you for sharing. I'm adding this to my bi-weekly menu plan.

Seafood Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Awesome! I did tweak this a tad. The amount of chili is not enough to give it the "kick" so I added a little crushed pepper flakes on the side for those who want a little spice. Also added 1/2 tsp of whole black peppercorns. I didn't have the orange juice, so I dared to put 1/2 c of Lime juice concentrate. Wow! That gave it a nice hint "Mexican style" flavor to it. Hubby loved it! THanks for sharing!

Pepperoni Pizza Pita

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
This has become a family favorite on Saturdays for lunch. We use Sahara White Pita bread, Hormel mini sliced pepperoni and Muir Glenn Organic Pizza Sauce. Even hubby who doesn't trust meals from packages loves this. The kids make their own pizzas, and they have fun eating their own creations. Thanks for sharing!

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
Awesome! The only thing I did differently was doubled the chili powder as my hubby likes it HOT! I didn't get a chance to add the cheese as he was ready to eat. It still came out so tasty! This is definitely a keeper and will be added to the bi-weekly menu schedule. Thanks so much for sharing!

Grilled Zucchini II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Loved it! I cut the zukes lengthwise, and let it sit in the Italian dressing for about 1 hour before grilling. Hubby and I were fighting over the last few pieces. What a great recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Avocado and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
Loved it! I had something similar to this in NYC, and I added chopped celery and quartered hard boiled eggs to top it. Also I cut the onion down to 1/4 instead of 1 whole. Was awesome with Tortilla chips! I also served it with BBQ chicken we had the other night.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
I actually made this with a pancake mix, 2 very ripe bananas, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Excellent! Cooked it on med heat, and it came out perfect. I froze the rest for reheating the next day. I greased the skillet with a spray oil, and it came out perfect. Loved it! Thanks for sharing.

Simply Lemon Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
Excellent! I heeded some other people's advice, and made revisions of my own. I used about 1.5 tbsp of salt to rub around the chicken. For basting, I used the juice of 2 lemons + 2 tbsp butter and 1/4 cup water. I placed the gizzards in the pan to cook with the chicken. Baste often. Eventually, I ran out of my basting sauce, but the chicken produced enough liquid in the pan that I used that to brush the chicken with. the gizzards and neck helped flavor the liquid, too. I served this with Oven Roasted Vegetables found in this site as well. This recipe now belongs in our 2-week menu rotation plan. Thank you for sharing!

Honey Baked Chicken I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
Loved it with a few changes! I doubled up the garlic, salt, pepper seasoning. A whole chicken is too much for us, so I marinated the rest in the fridge for the next day. For the basting sauce, I used 2 egg yolks, 4x honey and 1 stick butter. This was an absolute hit with the family. I've been asked to make it every week. Thanks for sharing!

Banana Berry Smoothie II

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2006
Simple and easy to make. I cut and froze our ripe bananas. Also froze the strawberries so that it has that "shake" texture. I omitted the honey since I have a kid less than 2y.o. Although, without the honey, it was a little bitter. So, I added 1 tsp. sugar to sweeten it up a little. I will definitely make this at least 3x week.

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
Wow! Didn't think pepper steak coud be this easy. I made a few changes based on what I had on hand. I doubled the sauce ingredients, however, I didn't have red wine vinegar. I used 1/4 c. white wine vinegar and 1/3 c. red cooking wine instead. I used the same oiled pan that the onions and peppers were sauteed on to cook the meat and sauce in. I forgot to add the garlic by mistake, so I added it to the sauce mixture. I didn't have flank steak, but used (sliced into strips) london broil and let the sauce boil with it, then simmer for 45 minutes in low-med heat. (I had plenty of time before hubby got home). Hubby loved it! My 4 year old devoured it! THANKS FOR SHARING!
