Sofrito

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Would use less garlic next time, but otherwise I love the flavor.

Cold Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Wow, delicious! So light and refreshing. I usually make large batches for meals throughout the week, and even after having this many days in a row, I still looked forward to it. Minor modifications: I used about 2/3 the mayo and it still tasted great, I used whole wheat pasta which I think added a bit of complexity (not to mention health), and next time I think I'll chop some dill pickles into it.

Wendy's Quick Pasta and Lentils

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
The sauce smelled great and overall it's a good dish. But it's a bit on the bland side, even after I put a lot more than a pinch of pepper flakes and mixed in some Puerto Rican sofrito I had on hand. If I make this again, I'll probably figure out some way to give it a bit more oomph. Nice and light, though, and the idea to make a pasta sauce out of lentil soup is a clever one.

Cajun Style Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Excellent! Used hamburger instead of shrimp because I'm not a fan of the latter, and it still turned out great!

Apricot/Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
My grocery store didn't have fresh cranberries, so I substituted plums instead. Definitely a different (and sweeter) taste than was intended, but it was delicious!

Paprika Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
Delicious, but only as leftovers when the flavors have had a chance to mingle and the sour cream flavor gets mellower. I didn't like it at first. I looked the chops entirely on the stove, adding the sauce after the first side was done.

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Phenomenal, I use half the oil for the roux, 1tbsp deseeded and deveined jalepeno instead of the red Chiles, 2 links andouille for the sausage, 3-4 chicken breasts, no shrimp, and serve over rice. Yum!

Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Very good, but a tad bland for something called "pepper steak." Red pepper flakes to taste make this great.

Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I really did not like this recipe when made according to the recipe. Way too salty, thick and buttery. However, when I made it according to some of the reviewer recommendations it easily became a 5-star recipe. Nice and light, and the dill is delicious. Basically, I skipped the cheese, reduced the butter, and sprung for red sockeye canned salmon instead of pink. I'm sure fresh grilled salmon would make this even better, but if I'm gonna pay for fresh salmon, I'm not going to put it in a soup! Just my $0.02.

Salsa II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Good, fresh salsa recipe. Personally, I wish I hadn't followed the recommendations to cut down the jalepenos and seeds so much because it ended up not being very hot, but still good!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
Good flavor, but way too cheesy and buttery. If I make it again I'll probably halve the butter/cheese, use a little less spinach and more chicken. This was basically spinach cheese casserole with some chicken pieces...I wanted more meat.

Quick Greek Pasta Salad with Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
A good recipe, but way too oily. I made a large batch for leftovers and got sick of it quick for this reason. With half the oil/butter I think it'd be excellent.

Simple and tasty! Used a little extra butter and garlic and mixed them together with the parsley before pouring over fish.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Delicious. I'm not usually a fan of fish dishes (except for grilled salmon), but this was superb without modifying the recipe.
