Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
This chowder definitely lives up to it's name! It is not too milky, or too clammy, it's just right! Very hearty and easy soup to make. I used chicken broth in place of water to cover my potatoes, may try using extra clam juice next time. I also added in an onion with the potato and carrot, just because I had one and I felt like it should be in there . I did only use one package of the leek soup mix merely because I am a dork and only grabbed one at the store. I think one did the soup just fine though : ) Served it up in some sourdough breadbowls (wish I could have made those too!) and it was to die for! My man couldn't stop saying how good it was, best we've ever had. Thanks for the awesome recipe Cindy!

Shredded Beef Chimichangas

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
I feel bad even reviewing this because I pretty much changed everything. BUT the idea of a non fried shredded beef chimi was great! I pressure cooked my meat with jalapenos, poblanos, onion, garlic, beef broth, a little canola oil and red wine. I also added very small diced potatos after the meat was cooked. Instead of baking these, I just pan fried them in a little butter like you would a quesidilla. Thanks for the inspiration, great recipe, will make again and again.

Gyoza

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
REALLY enjoyed this recipe but there is one thing I think was left out that is a crucial step in making it easier to roll the wontons. Once all your filling has been cooked together, throw it in a food processor and pulse a few times so the texture is a little mushier. Trust me it is SO much easier to handle and mold into place once inside the wrapper. I didn't figure this out until about half way through chasing pieces of pork all over the counter. All in all a very yummy recipe and the dipping sauce is so simple yet SO fantastic!

Pesto Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I modified this recipe a bit and it was deLICIOUS! So I made my homemade pesto and pounded the breasts out as in the recipe, but instead of cooking seperatly, I rolled it up, seared it and finished off in the oven, topped with extra cheese. Sauteed the mushrooms with evoo butter garlic s+p, and a little sherry. Topped the stuffed breast, it was amazing! Yum!

Panzanella Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I followed the recipe, omitted olives because the man at home doens't care for them. I thought it was kind of bland...so I added some crumbled bacon and a splash of rice wine vinegar. My changes improved it, but I do not think I will make this again.

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I used coconut milk in place of the cream as other users suggested and this was awesome! Next time I will add a lot more curry powder as it wasn't very hot to me. I put the potatos and carrots in with the onion to get a head start on cooking, and also sliced them pretty thin to help cut back on cooking time. Delicious vegetarian recipe!

Beefy Baked Ravioli

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
This is such a simple throw together meal! I never thought to bake my frozen ravioli, and I don't think I will ever just boil them again! I used spicy italian sausage instead of ground beef, and also added some sauteed mushrooms. Will definetly be keeping this on stand by for those nights I don't feel like cooking much. Thanks!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I read a lot of mixed reviews for this recipe, but decided to take the plunge and try it for myself, and I am glad that I did! These were soooo yummy! I doubled the sauce to have gravy for our mashed potatos, and added mushrooms to the pan while the patties were simmering. They turned out so juicy and moist, the sauce was delicious! Maybe a little bit on the salty side, but hey, it's condensed soup. We had some unexpected dinner guests over and everyone raved about this dish! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

TEN STARS!! BEST brownie's I have EVER had, let alone made! I had to share them with my family for fear of making myself sick from a chocolate overdose. I seriously could have ate the whole pan. Thanks Celeste! My search for the perfect brownie is OVER!

Byrdhouse Mushroom Barley Pilaf

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
GREAT recipe! I used half chicken half beef broth, baby bella shrooms, and omitted parsley simply because I had none. I also do not own a dutch oven, so I made it all on the stovetop. It took a little over an hour on medium-low heat for all the liquid to absorb for me. What an AMAZING depth of flavor! This dish left me feeling very full and satisfied, we will definitely be making this one again! Thanks for the awesome recipe Sunnybyrd! Who knew barley could be so good without soup!

Fierro Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
This was awesome! I didn't have enchilada sauce on hand, so I combined taco sauce with some leftover tomato sauce and a splash or 2 of tapatio to sub. I browned my chickn breast withh S&P to seal in the juices before topping with the sauce mixture, I also cooked the mushrooms in a little wine to draw out some of the liquid before topping the chicken with them, and of course the cheese! Once this came out of the oven I garnished with some cilantro. Excellent sauce, great new recipe for chicken, goes great with mexican rice. Thanks for the recipe!

Frank's® Red Hot® Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
This dip was ok. I think my expectations may have been a little high. Both the man at home and myself are HUGE blue cheese fans, and we love hot wings, for some reason this dip just didn't excite too much. It was a little on the greasy side as well. I probably won't make it again.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
This recipe is a good starting point but definetly needs some sprucing up: I made my own tamarind paste from raw tamarind as another user suggested. It is a bit of work but definetly worth it. I can't believe there is no SPICE in the original recipe! So when I made my sauce, I added a few tablespoons of hot chili garlic sauce,a tablespoon or so of fish sauce, and also added in a tablespoon of peanut butter and cut WAY back on the sugar (used not even half of what was called for). Since we like our food HOT HOT HOT, I also added in some siracha when I scrambled my eggs. With the changes I made we REALLY enjoyed this recipe!
