General Tao Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
This is soooo good! If you want the restaurant version, you're going to have to suck it up and deep fry the chicken. But this is an excellent substitute! Others complained of the batter: it is very thick as written. I simply added a couple Tbsp of milk to thin it out. It made for a thinner batter that coated and cooked evenly. I was pleased with it. Per other reviewers, I added a quarter cup of soy sauce and sherry, 2 gloves of garlic, and reduced the vinegar to 3 Tbsp, the ketchup to 2 Tbsp, and ginger to just 1 tsp (we aren't ginger people). The flavor was terrific. My husband, who loves General Tso's, at first commented that the chicken wasn't as crispy as he's used to, but he came around to saying "actually, this is really good!" Hope this helps!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2014
So fast, so easy, and so delicious. My husband said "keep that recipe" and I even forgot to add the green onions! I used uncooked shrimp and a head of broccoli. Put the broccoli in first and shrimp in last before the adding the sauce, which MUST be doubled to have enough.

Bourbon Pecan Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
I used thick chicken breasts when I made this recipe, and I knew they would require oven time to cook all the way through. The key to cooking this recipe as written in the frying pan is to use thin or pounded chicken breasts, which will result in a crispier crust, which is preferable in my opinion. The clarified butter is used so the chicken won't burn because it has a higher smoking point. It doesn't change the flavor, and regular butter is probably fine if you are only frying for a couple minutes then putting it in the oven. To pan fry the entire time, you will need clarified butter or an olive oil/butter combo as others suggest. Finally, the sauce is amazing. I will cut down on the butter in the sauce by about a third next time, so the other flavors stand out a little more. This is a delicious dish in the oven or on the stove, but try to fry it if you can!

Indian Chicken Curry (Murgh Kari)

Reviewed: May 18, 2014
Phenomenal. I wanted a thicker sauce that I could "scoop" with lavash bread, so I didn't add any water. It also greatly reduced the cooking time! I left the rest of the ingredients and ratios the same for the most part. I cut the salt in half and used sour cream instead of yogurt (it's what I had on hand). I also cubed the chicken and threw it in at the same time as the onion, etc, to avoid an extra step and further reduce the cooking time. I slightly reduced the amount of oil, and it could have been further reduced to achieve the goal of sauteeing/browinging everything. It came out really great, and the flavors were amazing thanks to this great recipe!

Squasage (Sausage-stuffed Squash)

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2014
This was great! I used 1/2 cup of diced tomatoes and 1/4 cup of bread crumbs instead of celery and mushrooms, just to mix it up based on my food mood that day, and the ratios for the recipe accommodated perfectly. Added a dash of garlic powder, sage, and a pinch of cayenne. Will make again! (And the name of this recipe warrants an extra star.)

Mediterranean Kale

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2014
I did not care for this dressing. Anything salty on kale just doesn't taste good to me.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
This tastes not unlike a chicken breast topped with artichoke dip, which just so happens to be delicious. Used half mayo and half sour cream at others suggestions. :)

Green Bean Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
As others suggested, I baked these at 375 for 25 minutes instead of frying them. A couple additional suggestions: the original recipe calls for way more flour and bread crumbs than is actually needed to coat the green beans. You could probably cut both in half to avoid waste. Also, place the flour and bread crumbs in 2 separate bowls with a lid, place the beans in the bowl during the respective steps, and shake to coat. It saves so much time compared to doing it by hand. Great veggie snack!

Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts with Shallots

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
6 stars! I didn't change a single ingredient but I simplified the cooking process and it came out even BETTER! Instead of cooking the chicken and sauce separately, I browned the chicken according to instructions, then added the rest of the butter, shallots, and garlic to the pan and sauteed. Finally, I added the wine and chicken broth and cooked everything covered until the chicken was done. I had really thick chicken breasts and knew they wouldn't cook all the way through without the liquid. I removed the lid for the last few minutes to thicken the sauce. I make chicken all the time, and I this is one of the moistest, most flavorful chicken recipes I've ever eaten, not to mention fast and easy! I was dumbfounded and thrilled by the simplicity of it.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
I thought a whole jalapeno would add enough spice to the sauce, so I subbed chili powder for cayenne. I was wrong--next time I will do half and half.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
So delish. Added carrots, zucchini, and broccoli and less than 3/4 the tomato sauce suggested. This recipe was so much better the next day after all the flavors had a chance to meld. I will make it a day early next time.

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
I loved this. Made according to recipe with exception of cutting sugar to 1t. I used Thai Kitchen green curry paste, and it isn't spicy at all. I would have preferred a brand with more kick. Also, I used the Chaokoh coconut milk. It was delicious, but almost a little too rich. I might use half light coco milk next time. Regardless, a 5 star recipe. Just thinking out loud so I know what to fiddle with next time I make it. There will definitely be a next time.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
This is just wonderful. Subbed chick peas for pine nuts since hubs doesn't like em and to add enough protein to make it a meal. Chicken would be good too!

Greek Seasoning

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
I love this seasoning. I use it to make Greek salad dressing: 1/3 c of red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/2 tsp of dijon mustard, and 1 Tbsp of this seasoning. Superb.

Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
I cooked for 9 minutes based on others reviews and the center was no longer liquid. I will go with the original recipe next time! Also, I think powdered sugar on top is definitely necessary for optimal sweetness as the cake itself isn't very sweet.

Orzo with Tomatoes, Basil, and Gorgonzola

I made this with Garlic Chicken from this site and a simple arugula and balsamic salad. It tasted like it took me hours, but it was the fastest, easiest dinner!

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
YUMMMMMMMMMMMY! I used rice vinegar instead of sherry as others suggested, and I paired the kebabs with the Tropiguac (Hawaiian-style Guacamole) also from this site and blue corn chips. Could not have had a fresher meal with some new flavors!
