Quick and Easy Paella

Reviewed: May 26, 2015
This base paella recipe was fantastic. The use of shrimp stock from the skins I think was the most important thing and a technique I'm happy to add to repertoire. I didn't bother with the saffron and ended up using long grain rice which resulted in a different cooking time. I also used andouille sausage which I think was perfect. I will be adding this recipe to my list of dinner meals and will likely add mussels, clams, and squid in the future.

Chef John's Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015
This was as close to tasting like chicken tikka masala as any other chicken dish. I wouldn't even say it was reminiscent of chicken tikka. It was pretty good, however, but I think mostly because of Chef John's choice of chicken thighs instead of breasts.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
This recipe isn't bad, but it's barely reminiscent of real enchiladas. My wife called it "Mexican lasagne" and I would tend to agree.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Very good. The sauce is great. I used mahi mahi instead. The batter recipe is sound, although I think I'll grill the fish in the future so it's less heavy.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I didn't care for this. I implemented all of Bes' suggestions which tons of people approved of and the flavor was nothing like what I was expecting/hoping for from pad thai.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
Fantastic recipe. As has been said, the granola crisps up as it cools. I originally cooked for closer to 30 mins because I didn't want any residual moisture, but I think I'll bake for more like 20 mins as directed next time. Mine didn't clump as much as normal granola, but it's delicious nonetheless.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
I have no idea what all the fuss is about this recipe. Somehow, it was extremely bland. The only flavor I could (hardly) taste was paprika.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
I added a medium chopped onion and basically ignored the salt additions and this was excellent.

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
These meatballs hardly even tasted like meat to be honest. The texture was all wrong. Way too much filler (3 cups between the cheese and bread crumbs!)

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
I don't know if this is supposed to be Americanized, but it's quite bland. It tasted fine, it just lacked the flavorfulness of good Indian. At the very least, I'd add 1/8 tsp of cayenne next time. It was also too watery.

Easiest Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
I made it with chicken and linguine and this sauce was great. I added garlic (because I love garlic) and some white pepper for added flavor.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I know it's called a "casserole", but I found it too eggy. It still tasted good, but I had some issues with the texture as a result of what seemed to me like too much egg mixture. My gf loved it, though. I'll try using less egg mixture next time. Confectioners sugar before serving is a must.

Chicken Alfredo with Fettuccini Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
The texture was wrong, more like a baked ziti-afredo with all of the ricotta cheese. No matter how much I heated the sauce, it remained grainy. Based on suggestions by others', I used half the ricotta and 1.5 lbs of chicken. It calls for way too much butter too. The final product was just OK. Edible, but I wouldn't make it again. Even after I added roasted peppers, garlic, and various herbs, it was actually still quite bland.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
This recipe was just OK. I have no idea what the need for so much of the soup mixture is. I would use 1/2 as much as it called for at most to make it creamy. I ended up tasting cream of chicken soup with every bite which I shouldn't when eating a Mexican enchilada.

Creamy Corn Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I scaled this up to 5 servings. I'm not sure if the calculator didn't work correctly, but the soup is way too watery even after adding extra flour. Not sure how this got so many good reviews because I think the final product is awful. I have no idea how I'm going to eat a pot of this myself...
