Mike's Portuguese Tuna Rice Casserole

This is quick, easy, healthy and my wife loves it! We is one of our Friday specials. I also add peas, red peppers, onion, black olives and a little four cheese mix in the layers to perk up the flavor.

Creamed Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
Quick and Easy! That's the most important thing about this recipe. My wife likes just a little more sauce so like some of the other folks here I added a little milk (1/4 - 1/2 cup) to the white sauce. And again like others I used only a half a head of cabbage to keep it as creamy as possible. Prefect side dish when you're trying to maintain a good table for a high fiber yet low meat content menu.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Thanks Debby! Quick and Easy! Just the way I like it. My wife loves good Italian dressing and this is one of the best. Do yourself a favor and use only quality ingredients and this turns out even better. Have a small bottle with a lid ready you'll need it and give it a good shake before serving.

Portuguese Bean Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
Thanks Pikala, Quick and easy. In the winter I can go right down the street here in Fatima, Portugal and order this off the menu at most restaurants. When I make this at home I use less water because we enjoy it more like a stew. The only the sausage changes as you move around Portugal. We would add nothing to your Grandmothers traditional Portuguese recipe she got it right.

Indian Saffron Rice

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Quick & Easy. Very handy recipe. When we want only white rice we now use the cooking technique suggested here & drop the butter, salt & saffron. The rice comes out light and fluffy and is a great base in other dishes. For special occasions use a better quality rice for a better dish but for normal day in day out cooking any rice will do quite well. If my main dish is chicken I drop the salt and add a chicken bullion cube to the water. Then sprinkle the top with roasted pine nuts and a pitch of cinnamon. This also goes well when served with peas and carrots.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
Not quick and not easy, but worth the effort! My wife had a hankering for Enchiladas and loved these. . . . One of the few real five star recipes. . . Stores well & great left overs. Here's a first, I did not change or add anything, can you believe it. This one is well thought out for the average palate. We lived in the Southwest states for many years and loved the cooking. Thank you Angela for a taste of the Southwest.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Quick and Easy! My wife loves it. I halved it, mixed in a cup of milk and replaced the bread crumbs with crushed corn flakes. Move it up a rack for the last ten minutes to add more color to the topping. Things you can add: ham, peas, onion or tomato sauce. Don't tell my wife but I did add a little more cheese then it called for.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Thanks Tangastar Quick and Easy just the way I like them. My wife liked it also. I use a meat loaf pan with a lift out. I first line the pan with aluminum foil covering the lift out. Then once baked I just poke a couple of holes in the foil to dry out the meat. Then use the remaining sauce with a little flour for a quick gravy.

Beef Stew VI

Thanks Paula, I'm a stew guy so I really enjoyed this. My wife also loved it. I added a couple of mint leaves when served just to give it a local spin. It's clearly a 5 star.

Grilled Salmon I

Thanks Tinamenina, Quick and easy. My wife loved it. I used a little of the sauce to coat the fry pan which added even more flavor. I'm going to try this on other types of fish fillets.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
Quick and easy! You gave us a winner here Carol. On the second success using this recipe I raised my rating to 5 stars from 4. This baby is a 5 star taste treat. My wife & the Dominican Sisters down the street loved the unique taste of this pie. I think I'll spend a little more time reading the other reviews they're great for picking up some pointers. Maybe someone has a suggestion on how to thickness of the sauce that the rhubarb produces.

Indian Carrots, Peas and Potatoes

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Thanks MTORRES3. Quick and Easy! I halved it. This goes great with a plain baked chicken or turkey. Cook this to add something to spice up the a normal plain meal. Increase/decrease the spice to match your families taste. I served this to my wife and guests they all loved it.

Sweet Potatoes 'n' Pears

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Quick and easy! Should be in all family kitchen cook books. My wife loves it. I halved everything and puréed the pears. Heated them in the micro for 1 minute then mixed all. The second time you make this adjust the brown sugar up/down to match your local or national sweet potato. If its yellow you've used sweet potatoes if its orange they're yams and need less brown sugar. The photo is miss leading.
