Spicy Lime Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Delicious, added some sea salt as my cajun spice mix had no salt. Grilled on the stovetop. Also grilled thick slices of red onions to go along.

Gourmet Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
Just made this for my daughter to take to the beach. Tasted great, and so quick. Added just a little lime juice to keep that green color.

Dave's Ultimate Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
I give this four stars as this is a great base recipe and I added my own touch. One clove of minced garlic, extra hot sauce as we like it hot, some diced red onion and some lime juice. Not a fan of cilantro so I left it out but may chop a real small amount next time. The key is to let it all set in the refrig for a few hours. Great with multigrain chips and beer with lime!

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I have tried many of the pizza dough recipes on this site to get the "perfect pizza parlor" crust. there have been several that were not too good and some that were great. But in the end This pizza recipe by far is the best. I made no changes to the actual ingredients. I only added a tsp per cup of flour of King Arthur Pizza seasoning that a friend recommended to me. But the crust was great with or without the seasoning. (fabulous with the seasoning and I highly recommend it!). I played around with the cooking temps and time and found 500 degrees bottome shelf for 5 minutes for pre cook and 450 for about 15-20 on the next shelf up with toppings. I am a happy girl...now I move onto toppings. thanks to all of your responses. This site helped me in my quest for a great homemade crust.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
I was asked to make these for Thanksgiving; actually a version of this recipe but I was more comfortable with the recipe on AR. I will tell you that I did read the reviews and made the following adjustments: I used 4T butter only; using some of it to sautee onion, garlic and mushrooms. Used one box defrosted/drained chopped spinach. Otherwise followed the directions and they were a big hit.

Jewish Grandma's Best Beef Brisket

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I make a version of this; I brown the brisket and remove. With the drippings I then, sautee chopped onion, 2 cloves garlic chopped, 1 cup chopped mushrooms and 2 chopped carrots. I add 2 cans of beef broth and 1/2 package of onion soup mix. Add back the beef and add one bay leaf. Simmer for 3 hours on low boil. Cool and slice beef against the grain. Best served the next day with garlic mashed potatos.

Vegan Split Pea Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
I made this today and it is wonderful. I am only going to give it 4 stars because I did make a change. I added Goya's ham flavoring which really gave it that smoky flavor but NO real ham. I will try without next time, but this was really delicious. I am sure great both ways.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I liked this recipe. Pretty basic, no wow flavors but really quick and easy to follow. I added red pepper flakes for some heat because that is what we like. Had no celery so I replaced with some fresh mushrooms. Maybe could have used some white wine at some point or sesame oil for additional flavor? but overall, easy and quick basic recipe.

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
We really liked this recipe, the only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because the browning process was great on the first side that was face down on the cookie sheet but when flipped the side on the cooking sheet did not brown very evenly --hardly at all. If I pressed down on the sandwich once flipped that seemed to help.

Rustic Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Very good, very easy weeknight dinner. I just increased some of the spices and left off thyme. Did not think thyme went with pasta sauce. I also used the 28oz canned of diced tomatoes and one small can of tomato paste in place of the tomatoe sauce.

Krystal's Perfect Marinade for BBQ or Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
This was very good; made as printed with no changes. I let the chicken marinate over 4 hours and used chicken thighs and legs. The marinade is a strong one and I thought the darker meat would be better. I think I would use this on sirloin steak tips or a flank steak as well.

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Substituted fat free for the mayo, sour cream, cream cheese but not the romano cheese. Used the real thing freshly grated at my favorite deli. So worth the splurge. Used a little extra and sprinkled on top so it browned and had a little stronger cheese flavor. Great recipe...

President Ford's Braised Eye Round Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
Loved this recipe. I have to give 4 stars because I used an eye round roast and browned in a cast iron skillet with oil and I stuck garlic cloves into the roast. Once browned I added sliced onions and spices with the wine & broth and put in the oven at 325 for 1 1/2 hours. It came out so good. Strained the juice and made a wonderful gravy with some flour and gravy master.

French Onion Soup VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Really simple, really good on a winter night. Used only one bay leaf and a pinch of thyme. Have made it with and without the flour and either way is good. My daughter loves this!

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
This beef stew is very good. I will say I am not a big fan of stew meat and used sirlion beef tips instead. I did not have boiling onions so i used a whole onion cut up. I also add a few tsp of gravy master for some additional flavor and two bay leafs. I add the vegetables and potato at the last hour or so of cooking. Freezes very well too.

Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Very good. I also roasted the potato and squash before it all went into the pot with onions and garlic. Used veggie broth since I had no chicken broth on hand so I left out the bouillon. Next time will use chicken broth. Used a dash of cayenne pepper because I always spice my soup with cayenne. Good comfort food and will keep for the regular rotation of soups.

Jordan Marsh Style Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I grew up with Jordan Marsh blueberry muffins. What a treat they were. Unfortunately, this recipe does not even come close to the originals.
