Oh wow. With a good shake of Cajun spice blend, and everything else exactly as stated in the recipe, you've got yourself a keeper. Yum!! Thanks so much!

Salmon with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
FAbulous!!!! I seasoned the salmon with a little Old Bay and Garlic Plus as well as the dill. I accidentally put more sugar than called for, and one daughter complained the sauce was too sweet but my other daughter and I polished it off. I'll make this again, next time I'll start with the requisite amount of sugar ;) and take it from there. Thanks, Janet!!!

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
I used red wine instead of white, and had cream cheese, but no sour cream. No matter, it turned out so good my 11-year-old is right now having it for breakfast, and my 5-year-old exclaimed !mm! smells good! when she smelled the heated breakfast. Thanks Daria, in this house, this one's a keeper! UPDATE: Actually that 11-yr-old wanted it again, but I had no mushrooms or c of m. So I made it using celery and c of celery, again no sour cream, so quite a departure from the original stroganoff, but I thought I'd share this tip because it was pronounced "even better than the other day." So there you go, two variations on a great original. Thanks Daria!

Zippy Skillet Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
We thought it was great! Of course, I couldn't make it exactly... because, unbelievably, I am out of chili powder (gotta remedy that STAT) but I only discovered this as the rice and tomatoes were simmering, so I kinda faked it with double the cumin, plus 1/2 tsp oregano, some cayenne and garlic and onion powders, the rest as stated, and everyone loved it, to be added to our rotation! Served with barbecued giant shrimp and scallop skewers.

Cinnamon Rice with Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Yep, yum. Based on other reviews I wanted to add a little butter, and because I had a leek in the fridge, I chopped that up, fried it in butter, then proceeded with the recipe. Will be added to the rotation; tonight it was served alongside the roast sticky rotisserie chicken from this site, the perfect dinner at a fraction the cost of a restaurant meal. Thanks!!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
I made a chiffonade of bok choy and added that along with the shrimp (I used cooked shrimp) and served over jasmine rice. Next time I'll try using raw shrimp. I doubled the sauce, but didn't double the cayenne because of the kids. If jut for myself, I would double the cayenne too. A great, quick, easy recipe!

Campbell's® Easy Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
After reading the reviews, I made the following changes: Campbells Cheddar instead of chicken; a bit of salsa in the bottom of the pan; and enchilada sauce over top. I made some chicken enchiladas, but running out of chicken I made some cheese enchiladas too using hot pepper cheese. I used mild salsa for the kids and still found it rather piquant but we all loved them. Served with Mexican Fire Rice from this site. Easy and YUM! Part of our rotation this fall/winter for sure.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Oh, yeah. That's the ticket. Deli chicken no more, I'm going to this recipe from now on. My modifications (we always have some, don't we): I added 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, doubled the garlic powder and used about 1 tsp less salt. And I added two cloves garlic in each chicken cavity. Otherwise followed the recipe and will make this again and again, using my oven rotisserie spit. Thanks for a great recipe. UPDATE: I no longer have that handy oven, so I use my brand-new convection oven. Still cut back the salt, now by half actually, and double the garlic powder, use ground thyme, and man, I'm so glad someone reminded me of this recipe. I'm just now licking my lips from enjoying it tonight. As for the salt content, as a friend from here once said: If you don't like that much salt, use less salt! So that's what I do here, and I'll state again, no more supermarket rotisserie chickens for me. This one is as easy as using my Crockpot. Thanks again!

Chicken a la Mayo

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
OK, OK, first the changes: I cut my chicken breasts into 1" cubes for nuggets. I had 1.2 kg of meat and doubled everything except the lemon juice - will double that next time. Plus I added 1/8 tsp cayenne. The amount of mayo mixture was just perfect, none to 'drip off', none left either. Very good, will make again.

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
My 11 yo asked me to give this 10 stars. Even my 5 yo liked it and asked for more sauce on hers. I used a semi-dry Madeira wine (what I had) and 35% cream, though I only used 1/2 cup wine to 1 cup cream. 2 Tbsp Dijon in the sauce (gotta get my glasses checked, I guess!) but in fact that was perfect for us. I also forgot to slather the mustard on the pork; I just used pepper on the meat during cooking. Plus following another reviewer's idea, I used the same skillet to make the sauce as the meat rested. Anyway it was grand and we all decided this is a definite keeper! Company-worthy, tastes fancy-schmancy, but so simple to prepare, you can actually enjoy your company when you serve this dinner. I'll probably be using this recipe over the holidays when the big family comes over. Thanks Koalagirl! :)

Sarah's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
I love rice, my kids not so much. I made a double batch of this for the four of us. Had I made a single batch, there would be no leftovers - so I'm glad I made extra, for my lunch tomorrow. I read all 101 reviews and considered adding some veg due to reports of blandness, then compromised by using vegetable broth, a brand likely only available in Quebec though, a dry mix chock-full of dehydrated vegetables, and that's how I'm making it from now on. Thanks for a great idea, and my apologies to the SF treat people - this is as someone already said 100X better.EDIT JAN 4: I've made this again and again, and we've found that we like it even better using fine egg noodles (like in Ricearoni) although of course orzo is excellent too. At different times I've used curry, coriander, dill, garlic, no garlic, onion, no onion, chicken bouillon, veg bouillon, beef bouillon --whatever suited the main dish, and it's really a flexible, go-to recipe in our house. In fact, my kids now love rice and ask for this. Thanks again for posting!

Cheddar Biscuit Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I made two batches of these, one with cheddar and chives, one with feta and oregano. I used 1 cup of cheddar and 3/4 cup feta. Each batch made 6 muffins. I preferred the feta ones, and my husband preferred the cheddar ones, and the kids just gobbled up all the rest. Light and flaky. Thanks for the easy recipe!

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
When my husband says "this is a keeper" I sit up and take notice. Easy, healthful, simple ingredients. I wasn't sure about the breadcrumbs, but they were a great addition. I used fine dry whole wheat. I also used parmesan. I used 3 cloves garlic, pungent but good. I used a green bell pepper, as it's what I had, and it was excellent. I'll try red and even orange on other occasions, because I'll be making this again and again. My 9-yr-old had seconds. Thanks for a great recipe!

Orange Spiced Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
These were great! Instead of nutmeg I used allspice and served them with ham and oven fries. I salted the boiling water for the carrots, not too much, just enough to bring out the flavour - maybe 1/4 tsp. Also, I found I had to whisk the corn starch into the orange juice to avoid lumps. Definitely added to the rotation! Thanks for the inspiration!

Mexican Fire Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I made this using no meat because it was a side dish to cheese and chicken enchiladas. I had already mixed together salsa and sour cream, along with a can of cheese soup for the enchiladas, so that's the mix I used for this rice; I didn't think it mattered that there was a little cheese soup mixed in and of course it was fine. Easy-peasy and excellent side dish. I ussed shredded pepper jack for the topping as that is what I had on hand. I'll definitely try it with the meat (not breakfast sausage, maybe Italian sausage I think, or pure ground pork,) as a main dish some other time; it's a great weekday meal. Thanks CHAUNIH!

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
Fantastic! I had a lonely leek in the fridge so I threw that in with the onion and celery. Used all broth, no water. And I didn't have any sausage at all, so I made meatballs using one lb ground pork seasoned with 1 Tbsp chopped garlic and 1 tsp Italian Seasoning and 1/2 tsp basil. I let that sit for the first hour while the soup simmered, then dropped the 1/2 inch meatballs into the bubbling soup, cooked another half hour. I also added 1 tsp white sugar as I always do to soups with diced tomatoes. Omitted the pasta and completely forgot about the cheese. Outstanding, a keeper, thanks Angchick!

Apple Snack Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I had to use chocolate chips because I had no butterscotch... it was great anyway. I followed another reviewer's recipe for using AP flour with baking powder. Worked great. Will make again. Thanks!
