Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Very good, and I made it even easier! I used brown Ready Rice and just a touch of chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. It made this dish ready in about 5-8 minutes! I also added a couple tablespoons of tomato sauce, to make the rice taste more like Mexican-style rice. I will make this again! I loved it.

Try this -- you will love it! So simple and pretty much goes with everything! Try adding a dash of wine.

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
So tasty! My boyfriend and I both really, really liked them. So simple, but definitely a good twist on normal sweet potatoes! I will definitely make this again.

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This was really good, but my crumb breading kind of came out like stuffing and kept falling off. However, the recipe was still very good, I will make it again. I did sear my pork loin beforehand and added more seasonings.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
Mmm! So good! I even messed up the recipe -- I used half of the oil with the intention to make half of the recipe but ended up using the whole cup of rice...so I continued with what I had and it was still very great! I will use this recipe again.

Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
My new favorite! I only used red wine vinegar instead of the rice vinegar -- only because I read the recipe wrong :P But I will make this time and time again. I really loved the red pepper flakes with this! If you have the time, let it sit together in the fridge for at least an hour for the flavors to blend. A must-try!

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I loved this! The only thing I did differently was season the tilapia cajun-style because I like the sweet with spicy. I will definitely make this again!

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
Excellent! I used rotini pasta and added marinated artichokes. Also left out the tomato as I didn't have any. I will definitely make this again -- I loved it! **2nd Attempt** Even better! I didn't use artichokes the second time but I kind of liked it better without! I also didn't use green pepper because I had none, and I used much more cucumber than the recipe called for (about 1 medium cucumber, seeded and chopped).

Foil Wrapped Veggies

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
I used the same seasonings, but different vegetables (onion, sweet peppers and potatoes). Very, very good, easy, and I will use this time and time again!

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
I thought this was just okay. I didn't particularly like the balsamic, and I usually really like using balsamic in recipes. I think it overpowered too much.

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Much easier to make than I expected. I only added cornstarch to thicken the sauce, but other than that I followed the recipe but added a little garlic too. Served with rice and a broccoli-pepper stir fry and it was great! Oh, I also followed another review to put a little flour on the chicken before searing. I would suggest to do that only if you want to -- I don't think it made much of a difference.

Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts with Shallots

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
I love this recipe! I've made it a few times and was looking through my recipe box to find a chicken recipe for tonight and came across this :D Thought I'd leave a review. I too "feel like a total chef" with this :D It goes with just about anything. Be sure to use a wine that you like to drink -- it makes the chicken taste so much better! Also try to throw in fresh garlic cloves.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Great fish, great sauce! I used the Cajun Spice Mix recipe from this site to make the cajun seasoning -- that recipe is great, too! I'm not a fish lover and I'm looking forward to making this again. I didn't even really use too much of the sauce because I liked the fish itself so much...but I used the leftover sauce for a pita sandwich the next day. Really, really good recipe! I will definitely make this again and again. I used a little bit of Old Bay as one reviewer suggested. I spread a little bit of melted butter on top of the fish before I added the seasonings, and cooked the filets in a foil packet on the grill. Lost no moisture, tasted great!

Cajun Spice Mix

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Great cajun seasoning! However, I too cut the salt in half, and used Italian seasoning instead of oregano (because I didn't have plain oregano). I used this for the Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce recipe from this site (I reviewed that, too). I didn't add the red pepper flakes but I wish I had once I made it! It would have added the perfect amount of heat -- don't hesitate to use it if you like spicier cajun seasoning! I will be using this recipe a lot in the future! One of the best simple recipe I've found in a while. I'm going to end up using it on everything ;D

Roasted Broccoli

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
I really just thought this tasted kind of weird. Maybe it's just not a flavor I've become accustomed to -- but I wouldn't make this again. I too cut back on the seasonings but it still really wasn't what I wanted. I guess I'll stick to plain steaming or lemon juice :) Sorry for the poor review -- at least everyone else liked it ;D

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
This was good! I didn't use a whole chicken, but I used breasts for the two of us. Tasted great, easy to make. Letting it marinate makes a huge difference.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Original Blue Cheese Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
This was soooo good! I liked eating it best right away better than leftover the next day. I omitted the celery and didn't use a mix: instead I just used regular cabbage and a little red onion. I was looking for a way to use up my blue cheese and this is the way to go! Thanks for the recipe, jodi! I will use this again and again -- great twist on ordinary coleslaw!
