Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Very nice! This was a pleasant change to the usual ground beef chili. Like other reviewers, I also added a 1/2 teaspoon of cumin. Because I didn't have basil or oregano at the time, I had to use Italian seasonings (which had a lot of marjoram in it). It still came out delicious.

Slumgullion

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
It's pretty good for how cheap, easy, and fast it is to make. I doubt it will blow anyone away with it's flavor, but, for what it is, it's a good recipe. I agree with other reviewers though. Italian herbs and/or garlic in moderation would improve the recipe.

Simple, Classic Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
This recipe was excellent. I made two pies (doubled the recipe) and with one of them I experimented with the garlic idea that other reviewers mentioned. I have to agree with cook's rating of the garlic. I usually love garlic, but it just wasn't that good in this recipe. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I highly recommend it.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Excellent first experience with pesto. I am hooked. Although I never have had pine-nuts, the sunflower kernels were still great in this. It was very nice to offer an alternative to the $20/pound pine-nuts.

Crunchy Oven Fried Tilapia

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I agree that this recipe is kind of bland. It is a nice base recipe that can be spiced up though. Even just using some garlic power in the bread crumbs adds a lot of needed flavor. Overall this was a very nice, fairly mess-free way to cook some delicious crunchy fish.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
This is such a delicious, simple, and versatile recipe. It has become my generic starting point for an easy stroganoff because it tastes great even when more inexpensive ingredients are used. I've cooked it according to the instructions before, and it was great, but it is also awesome cooked with inexpensive hamburger (be sure to drain some of the fat) and awful, cheap bottle of chardonnay. Overall it is easy, relatively quick to prepare, and inexpensive to make. This recipe deserves its 5 star rating.

Curry-Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
This recipe made a great curry! I think it is important to note that I did use a red curry paste, which included a variety of other ingredients (like salt), instead of using curry powder; this dish, followed exactly to the recipe's instructions, might not be as good as what I tasted.

Exchange Gang Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
This was amazingly good and easy to cook! I am a real amateur and I still was able to pull this dish off very well. This will be one of those recipes that I will cook for years to come.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
I liked this soup, but one could definitely botch the flavor if nice, ripe tomatoes aren't used. The soup definitely tasted better the second time around because of the acidity from the vine ripened tomatoes. I thought the that the acidity was important enough that I even doubled the amount of tomatoes called for the second time I cook this recipe. This time it turned out very well. I also recommend leaving out some Parmesan cheese for people to add to their soup if desired. It was a nice addition that some people liked.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
The addition of red wine to a stew was an interesting contributing flavor; however, I thought the use of a slow cooker was impractical. I would recommend that people just cook this recipe using a covered pot on medium-low heat. This way you're able cook all the previous steps in the same pot and end up with less dishes to clean in the end.

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
When eating steak, I usually cook my mushrooms in the steak's drippings; however, this was so quick, easy, and delicious that I think I will use this recipe from now on instead. It was very good!
