Souvlaki

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Wonderful flavor that the whole family enjoyed including our pickiest (burger, pizza) eater. 5 stars are only given to those dishes which are truly amazing. Having said that I will be making this again. The only changes I made was to use 3 lbs of pork, and to include 1 red pepper, mushrooms and 2 yellow squash. Served with roasted potatoes and garlic green beans (recipes on this site).

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Wow, really disappointing. While the sauce was very edible, I'd have to say that it wasn't even as good as most store bought jars. I made 2 changes, however, I don't believe they would change this from a 3 star to a 5 star recipe. The changes I made were to use 1 Tbsp of dried parsely instead of fresh and to use 5 Tbsp of olive oil instead of 6. I've made a better sauce and will post the recipe at a later date. I personally like more garlic, a little basil and usually add a little brown sugar.

Abby's Chicken Rollatini

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
I followed the recipe as written, however, I did substitute thinkly sliced ham in place of proscuitto. While there were no complaints from the family, overall I thought the recipe was rather bland. However, I'm rating this a four not for the flavor of the recipe itself as much as for the inspiration it's given me to try different rollatini. A good chicken dish, especially for families with picky eaters. Will try again, but next time will experiement more with the stuffings and spices.

The kids loved 'em. Nice change. Like others I used fresh beans and followed Daniel den Hoed's review steps for boiling.

Sour Cream Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
The only change I made to the recipe was to use light sour cream. It was fair and on the bland side. I think 2 cups of sour cream might be a bit much. I was hoping for more of a stroganoff flavor. While everyone in the family ate the dish, most were in agreement that it was just okay.

Amazing White Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
Great recipe and easy to make! Whole family enjoyed it. NOTE: At some point recipe was modified from 2 Tbsp or red pepper to a pinch of red pepper. Most reviewers recommended between 1 and 2 tsp. I did follow another reviewer's suggestion and used shallots instead of onions and used 4 cans of clams (2 chopped, 2 minced).

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
Awesome, easy and filling! Is on our regular winter menu. I cook the sausage and bacon separately and drain so that the soup has less grease and stays a creamy color.

Joe's Fusion Chicken Pad Thai

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
Everyone but one kid loves this however I still have not gotten the noodles done perfectly. This is not authentic, but as the title says a Fusion. I've tried other Pad Thai recipes and this is the one the rest of the family likes the most. I'll keep trying this and new ones.

Shredded Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
Great flavor and easy. I suggest doubling recipe as it is even better left over. Also I'm more likely to share with friends when I double the recipe.

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Most of the family loved it! Made it exactly as written except doubled the amounts. . The fresh lemon is a must and gives it a very refreshing flavor. Very satisfying and filling soup.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
Most of the family loved it! My daughter thought it was too spicy, but my wife, son and I loved it. Made it with a few changes, but I am sure this is excellent as written. Changes I made were that I doubled the recipe and doubled the rice used because 1/2 cup didn't seem enough. I used about 1/2 Tbsp Yellow Curry, about 1 Tbsp Garam Masala, about 1/2 Tbsp Red Curry and about a teaspoon of Tumeric. Will definitely make again, but I will not make my change of doubling the rice next time.
