Chili Colorado

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
In all honesty I cannot give this 5 stars because I changed it a bit to fit my time constraints and personal tastes. First, I doubled the recipe. I slow cooked it for 6 hours on low because it seemed to be possible with this recipe and I didn't have time to stand around my house to simmer it on the stove. I did not brown the meat and just tossed and coated it with 6 tablespoons of flour. I prefer Chili Colorado made with beef, so I used beef stew meat. I used an whole small onion and added a pinch of fresh garlic. Since I cooked it with my slow cooker I just used 4 cups of water instead of 6, even though I doubled the recipe because slow cookers have a tendency to make things soupy. I doubled all the seasonings according to the measurements provided and added about 1/2 a teaspoon of cayenne for a little more heat. Turned out absolutely wonderful! Served it with homemade spanish rice and chile pepper tamales. Thanks for this great recipe!!! :)

Runza Burritos International

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I don't give 5 stars often but this deserves it... even though I did change it a little... That being said... Who would have guessed that ground beef and cabbage would make such an awesomely good burrito!?! I changed the recipe slightly... because some people said that the meat can be a little bland, I simmered it in chicken broth instead of water, added a dash of salt and a few dashes of worcestershire sauce. I also added about 1/2 a cup of shredded carrots because I had a small amount that needed using. Quite spicy but if you like heat, these are perfect. How can attest to their deliciousness? My son who loathes veggies ate 2 of these burritos!!!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Really Good! Only thing I did different is I used fat-free half & half instead of heavy cream. Simmered down to a wonderful consistency. Yum!

Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Only thing I changed for this recipe is I used just 1/2 a cup of vegetable oil (which was more than enough!) and 2 garlic cloves. Marinated 1" thick chops for about 7 hours. Turned out absolutely delicious!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
The only thing I changed with this recipe was I used all broth (4-5 cups), no water. I also didn't have fresh herbs (with the exception of a few leaves of fresh basil, which I saved, minced and sprinkled on top when serving)... instead I used a heaping teaspoon of dried oregano and almost exactly 1 tablespoon of dried basil. Which seemed adequate in flavoring the soup nicely. I only had 1 1/2 cups of tomato sauce, so I made up for the rest by chopping up 4 roma tomatoes that I had that needed using. This was so good and made a whole lot of soup. After 5 people ate and 3 having seconds, there was still half a pot left!!! Can't wait for leftovers!

Caribbean Chicken with Pineapple-Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I cooked the rice in my rice cooker, substituting some of the water for the pineapple juice in the can to give the rice a sweeter flavor, so it required little to no salt. Also used chicken tenders because they cook up faster. 20 minutes and the whole meal was ready and delicious! Yum! :) Be aware... the chickens flavor is quite strong. My family liked it but I could see how it could be pretty strong for others.

Super Calzones

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
I changed this recipe a bit. First, I used chicken sausage instead of ground beef. Second, I used spaghetti sauce instead of Italian seasoning & tomato sauce (I'm lazy what can I say? lol). Third, I added turkey pepperoni & a pinch of parmesan cheese to the mozzarella. Fourth, instead of cream cheese I added a spoonful of ricotta instead. And to top it off I sprinkled it with garlic salt & parsley flakes. No olives because I didn't have any. The family loved it!

Caley's Classic Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
I followed the directions except I used 3/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup vegetable oil... if I can avoid using tons of oil, I do, so I did. :) I also reduced the amount of sugar to 1 1/2 cups. Had absolutely no trouble removing it from the pan, used PAM and lightly floured my pans. Very moist and Truly delicious!!! Thanks for the recipe!

Spicy Eggplant

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Ok, so this recipe actually was supposed to be for Spicy Eggplant however, when I cut into my eggplant it was bad (brown all the way through). So, needless to say I had to make a change. So I replaced the eggplant with firm tofu, and cooked the rest according to directions. I added about 1 teaspoon of grated ginger, and about 8 oz. of edamame to the mix too. I also replaced the chili sauce with chile paste and a squirt of sriracha... turned out delish! :)

Lime Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Really, very good! I used lemon juice because I did not have lime... I also added some chili powder, cumin, onion powder and salt to the fish. I used olive oil instead of butter (just a smidge better for you :). I also used cabbage instead of lettuce and mixed it into the sour cream mixture along with the chopped tomatoes (which I did not add mayo to). Also added cilantro and 3 green onions minced to it. Will make this again! Thanks!

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Could not even tell they were made from a can of tuna! I used Sriracha (rooster sauce) as my chili sauce, it has bite, so I skipped the hot sauce. Really good and since we love heat, these were perfect!!! Yum!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
This quinoa was pretty good. I didn't use any butter or toast my quinoa. I made it according to package directions using the broth in place of water. I didn't have fresh thyme so I used about 1/4 teaspoon of dried and added it toward the end of the cooking process of the quinoa along with the garlic. Used only about 1/2 of a large onion and the lemon gave it a nice touch. Added a dash of black pepper too the mix too... will make again! :)

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
I served this over brown jasmine rice. Instead of heavy cream, I just used 1 entire cup of plain yougurt. I added a couple dashes of cayenne to give it some spice. Really good... a milder, yet packed with spice, Indian curry. Nice!

Jamaican Jerked Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
This was AH-MAZING!!! The recipe calls for a whole cut up chicken but I used chicken tenders. I didn't have any ground cloves so I used 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice in it's place. Used one good sized jalapeno instead of measuring. Marinated for about 4 hours instead of 8 and cooked on my indoor grill till they were no longer pink. They had an ever so slight spicy hint to them and it amazed me how good this was! NOTE: If you decide to boil the marinade to put over it. I suggest adding a dash of salt and a couple of tablespoons of water. TOTALLY making this again!!! Thanks for the recipe!

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
My rice was sticky but I think it was because I'm not sure I used long-grain and I didn't rinse it. However, the flavor was fantastic if you like lime & cilantro!
