Avocado and Orange Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2015
This was very easy and tasted very good. I was not sure how I would like oranges with avocado, but I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't my favorite sandwich, but it was tasty and a change from my normal lunches.

Garlic-Lemon Mahi Filets

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2015
I'm giving this a four because all of my kids ate it! They like bland food, so this was great for them. My husband and I would give it a 3. We couldn't grill because of the weather, so I cooked it on the stove. I also used moscato because we didn't have white Zinfandel. Good for a quick meal, but nothing spectacular.

Tourtiere

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2015
This was go good. Although I have to admit we have never had tourtière before, so I'm no sure what it should taste like. I used chef John's pie crust recipe. I cut the bacon once it cooked in the pan with the other meats. My two girls absolutely loved it! My husband said he'd give it a 3, but he'd eat it again. I really enjoyed it.

West Texas-Style Buffalo Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2015
This was very good. However, we prefer the Colorado buffalo chili recipe from this site (with our modifications). The only thing I did differently was that I used canned beans. We liked the addition of zucchini. It seems like the meat could use a bit of seasoning while it's cooking. This dirtied a lot of pots, but it was tasty. I'm curious if it would taste as good in the slow cooker.

Simple Garlic Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
I loved it, but my husband gave it a 4. My girls liked it a lot too. I made 6 servings, which was the perfect amount for the five of us.

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
This was wonderful. However, next time I will try using a bit less of each type of chocolate. I thought it was a bit thick, and I prefer thinner bark.

Filet Mignon with Bacon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
This was very good. I halved the recipe because I only had two filets. Even though I halved it, I used more than a quarter cup of half and half. It still did not make a sauce. It was a "topping" and not a cream, but it was still a very good dinner that we all enjoyed. I cooked the bacon in the microwave first and then crumbled it into a saucepan.

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2014
The sauce for this was wonderful, especially on pasta. The chicken was good, but I think I would prefer it on thinner chicken breasts than what I used.

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
Luckily, I only made a half batch, but I wish I had cut it down even more. I tried it with pita chips and Fritos. I felt like I was eating mayo. The taste was too strong. My husband gave it 2 stars.

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2014
My girls and I loved this! My husband liked it, except for the chunky tomatoes. He doesn't like cooked tomatoes. I used a little less than 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes because I was worried it would be too hot for my young kids. However, it was not overly spicy and probably would have been fine with the full amount. Very good!

Sweet and Sour Beef Cubes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2014
This was easy to make. I used only 2 lbs of stew beef and 2 onions, but I kept the sauce measurements the same. I wasn't a huge fan of the gooey flour on the beef. Maybe if the beef was browned in a skillet before baking, it would be better. However, I don't think I will make it again. It wasn't bad, but I would rather eat something else. My husband, who isn't very picky, did not like this. He said it's edible, but not good. He gave it 2 stars.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
This was very good. I added a bit of chopped basil from my garden. I used 32 oz of ricotta cheese because that's what I had on hand. I also used a bit more pasta. This made enough for me to split it in half so I could freeze some. I found it hard to mix everything in a large bowl. It was very full! This was very good.

Easy Honey Mustard Mozzarella Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2014
I enjoyed this, and I am not a big fan of chicken. I made some minor changes. I used thin chicken breasts, and the cooking time was perfect. I didn't have lemon pepper, so I peppered the chicken. I mixed the honey and mustard together and added a dash of lemon juice. I poured it on the chicken. I cooked the bacon in the microwave and then added it for the last ten minutes. I also added corn starch mixed with cold water to thicken the sauce. I loved the mixture of the sauce with the bacon and cheese. It was different and tasty. ***The leftovers were not nearly as tasty.

Veal Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
This wasn't really for me. The first bite was ok, but as I ate more, I disliked it more. My husband said three stars. My three year old liked it though. I made two smaller loaves. I added a handful of onions because I had some leftover from another meal.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Sausage Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
I say 4, but my husband says 3. He did not like that it had such a strong tomato taste. It was not the 'typical' chili. I liked that it was different from usual. It was not spicy at all. I made it exactly as written. I tried it plain and with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese. Both were good. Next time I may try adding some garlic and green pepper.

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2014
We really liked this. I made it as written, except I used 15 oz of ricotta. I would not use less. I also used fresh basil from my garden. I divided the recipe and froze a small portion. However, next time I would divide it in half. Half would be sufficient for us for a meal.

Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2014
This was great. I say 5. My husband, who usually does not like Chicken Parmesan gave it a four and said it was really good. I used garlic and basil tomato sauce. Be sure to use plenty of cheese. It's so yummy!
