Cheese Ravioli with Pumpkin Sage Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
The sauce is so great! This tasted like a 5 star meal at a restaurant. I stopped at my local italian deli & picked up lobster stuffed ravioli & made the sauce in October, was too die for! The ravioli were a bit large & the sauce is very rich so now I just use 1 or 2 lobster stuffed ravioli as a starter or app before a dinner- would serve this meal to guests!

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
excellent! I added red pepper flakes and doubled the cumin & oregano, I also added in about 4 tbsp of jalapeno cheese along w/mozz cheese b/c I had no monteray jack cheese. I simmered for about an hour to thicken up & not be runny. Had some left over cheddar & bacon biscuits to soak everything up- yum!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Excellent- I often find that I just stick w/the basic 4-5 recipes I use for ground turkey & was looking for something different & since we love mexican- this was perfect! I did mix the refried beans w/the GT mixture & also added 1 4oz can of green chiles, added cheese into mixture as well and filled the flour tortillas all together. Baked & topped w/lettuce, tom & sour cream. Yum! Using 1lb of GT, I was able to get about 7 large filled chimi's, froze the rest. BF raved about these & said add them into rotation! Thanks for submitting, this is a great add for a mini mexican night at the house!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
These were terrific! Yes, a little time consuming, but not difficult to manage. I submitted buttermilk for reg milk b/c I had that on hand & wanted to use up- I used WW flour and added garlic, paprika & extra pepper to the flour mixture for a little more zing. I also used panko bread crumbs that I chopped further in a processor, added about 1/4 C of regular Italian bread crumbs to that as well. Coated rings in flour mixture in sealed bag & since I was only making for 2 people, I was able to hand dip each ring into the batter mixture & let drip on cooling racks. I had to fry daddy, so I just heated oil in large deep sided pot on oven. These came out great, nothing like a chain restaurant- these were tasty! I even made the bloomin onion dip from this site. will make again when I need some down home comfort food!

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Oh my god- this was absolutely awesome! The flavor was perfect. I added a bit more orange zest then called for and followed others direction by heating the chicken in the oven after browning. I was not able to marinate for the full 2 hours, I only could marinate for about 45 min. I also had a little difficulty keeping the flour mixture on the chicken while browning- I will follow the advice of another by dipping chix in egg before flour to hopefully keep flour mix on. Will def. make again, served over rice & there were no leftovers! Kudos to Harry for posting this recipe!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Terrific & easy to prepare- I made about 7 potatoes, and had enough 'filling' to last for days, I froze all the potatoes for weekday dinner options when too busy to cook, a great time saver, and delish side.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I thought this recipe was terrific! I love anything spicy, I stuck to the recipes measurements & thought is was just enough kick, I applied the rub & then threw the chicken on the grill w/some asparagus. I used organic chicken so I basically had 4 thin cutlets, didn't need to pound out. the sauce was great & so flavorful using the lime, I will cut back on the butter next time b/c I think 2 tbsp was a bit much, my BF claimed the sauce was too strong, but yet he ate the entire plate??? I thought this was a restaurant quality meal & will be making again. This was perfect for a summer night!!

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
so delish! I couldn't believe what I thought would be a simple 'alfredo' dish would turn out so flavorful! The red bell really added flavor to this dish. I added chicken and used a whole red bell pepper, I used the 1tbsp of cayenne b/c we love spice. I did sub asiago cheese for the romano ch b/c that was what I had. my BF was raving over this meal throughout saying how great it was. The final clincher was when he said "I would eat this 3x a week, this is a keeper!" then he high-fived me! What a way to start & end a dinner. Thank you for posting this.

Firecracker Scallops

These were great! Easty to prepare & cook. I would mix the horseradish sauce up & pour over scallops, the sauce made the dish! My BF loved these & could not rave enough about the dinner.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2013
I ended up cooking this for a total of 2 hrs b/c my hubby was running late at work, but the end result was fall apart beef- wonderful taste, easy clean-up. Will make again. I did not need to add in sour cream, sauce was thick enough & light enough for my taste.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

It's a keeper! I had a large quanity of left over ham to use up & decided to freeze some homemade soups for the upcoming winter, this recipe caught my eye- served for dinner that night & the b-friend raved about it! I used red potatos and kept the skin on, added a little cheddar cheese to the rue before combining w/the base. I will be making extra batches to freeze again. this is a hearty, warm soup that's delish!!!

Pot Stickers Traditional

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
These were terrific & so tasty as an appetizer- The dipping sauce was fantastic- I added some red pepper flakes into the mixture for a little more zip. I initially started out by making my own dough, but then switched to the store bought wonton wrappers, which made the process easier- it is a lot of prep work but well worth it for the final product, had enough mixture to freeze a few batches. I omitted using water to steam and used less then 1/4 cup chicken broth to steam for about 10 min. I also just sprayed the pan w/PAM and spraged the stickers w/PAM while browning instead of oil.

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
awesome! I made this to enjoy as a dipping sauce for some pork pot stickers I had previously frozen- excellent taste, just right amount of everything. I will go ahead & add a little more hot chili sauce next time for a little more zip!
