Fideo (Mexican Spaghetti)

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
Wow. I decided to make this as a surprise for my Fiance, since it was a dish that he grew up on. He smelled it when it was almost done cooking and came to investigate. He was so thrilled. I rarely am able to recreate dishes his mother made, but this one was almost perfect. Rather than fresh tomatoes, I used undrained rotel (since it was more similar to hers). I used the amount of spice the recipe called for, but it was too spicy. I will make it again and only use half, if that. He also said it needed more tomato flavor, and that his mom used tomato sauce. I will be adding more tomato sauce when I make this for dinner again tonight. Perfecto.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
These were easy to make, but messy. I used Rolos, but I think a better candy choice would really show through. I made them for Valentine's day and put them into cups for gifts. The recipients loved them.

Old Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I read a review that said that you can't rate a recipe when you change it - I must respectfully disagree. Any good cook should be able to see a recipe and know what would work best for his/herself, family or friends. I liked this recipe, although I went 'lazy' on the dumplings. One of these days, I will try to make my own dumplings. I used two chopped onions, some chopped celery and I added some carrots (It's just not chicken soup without carrots). Some like green beans, but we don't. I also added some flour to the veg while it sauteed, because I like my chicken n dumplins thickened. I added some heavy cream at the end. This is a great recipe and can be modified to make chicken soup or chicken and dumplings.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
I liked this, but my fiance did not. I guess we won't be having it again. *shrug*

Salmon Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was not very good, at all. I was looking for an alternate way to cook canned salmon, rather than frying it, and this just doesn't cut it. I was afraid of it being too bland, so I added some onion and some spices. In addition, I was afraid it would be incredibly soggy, and it was - even after I drained at least half of the juice from the fish. The changes that I made were the only reasons that it was edible. I might consider making this again if I drained all the juices, but I doubt it. It was pretty gross.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
Very good recipe. The last time I made it, it turned out to be a bit soupy. I may have added a bit too much cream, but I don't think so. This is a basic recipe that can be adapted to different proteins or vegetables - even vegetarian. Yum!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
My SO actually liked this dish. He picks out a lot of the tomatoes and onions, but he does 'eat what sticks to the chicken'! I serve it with garlic mashed potatoes and a vegetable. I also cut the vinegar in half, as it is too strong for us. I really like this recipe, though. I have made it several times. I like to cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces. It looks very rustic this way.
