Ryan's Favorite Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Fantastic. To simplify, I cut the original recipe in half, left out the ground beef (because we were making burgers already) and lima beans, and scaled back the other ingredients just a little. I used 2 slices bacon, 1 can pork/beans with some liquid, 1 can kidney beans, 1/2 c BBQ sauce, 2 T br. sugar, 1 T cider, 1/2 t liquid smoke, and 1/4 t pepper. I omitted the salt, and accidentally forgot the onion (will remember next time). Cooked in a casserole pan with lid at 375 for 1:15. They were the best baked beans I've ever tasted. I'm not a big baked bean eater anyway, but my fiance who loves them raved. He said, "SAVE THIS RECIPE!" So I am. :)

Roasted Beet, Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
This knocked my socks off! Each flavor perfectly complimented the next. Couldn't find walnut oil so used peanut instead. I think the ratios of fruit to salad are a little off as written--I liked it even better when I made it a second time and just "eye-balled" it. What a summer treat!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
Subbed 2 cans of Rotel for the tomatoes and omitted the red pepper flakes. Spicy, delicious, and extremely Derek-friendly.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
Truly to die for. Per the most highly recommended review, I beat the eggs, mixed them with parm-reg (3-4 times the amount called for in the recipe) and then mixed it with the still-hot-but-not steaming pasta. I then tossed everything else in. I omitted salt and forgot pepper, and it was still extremely flavorful.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Yum. With an added 1/2 c. sour cream, extra cheese mixed in, and the chicken cooked with onion, garlic powder, Mrs. Dash, marjoram, and a squeeze of lemon juice, this was delightful.

Yakisoba Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
As someone who has never tasted an "authentic" version of this dish, this recipe is an absolute homerun! I've made it with Udon noodles as well as Thai rice sticks, and it is always wonderful. I see no need to cook the ingredients separately and suggest sauteing the onions, garlic, and carrots in the oil/chili sauce until the onions are translucent. Then toss in the chicken and soy sauce and cook until the chicken is cooked through. Finally, I add the noodles and a whole bag of Trader Joe's shredded cabbage and mix it all together just until the cabbage it heated through--about a minute or two. It's perfect and delicious. Note: I use Hunan chili sauce (potent!) instead of chili paste so I only use 1 Tbsp. I still cry, but only a little. :) Update: My feelings remain unchanged, but my husband who is very salt sensitive, can't even eat this dish. :( Use low sodium soy sauce. But even then, it might not be tolerable for some. Oh well, more for me! :)

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

I should have listened to other reviewers. It's pretty mushy as written.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
This was very good! Although unlike other reviewers, I don't think it requires the cream to make it so delicious. It's the amazing flavor the basil imparts! I will try it with milk next time to see if I can make a healthier version that still tastes great.

Baked Havarti Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Made as written, and the BF called it "the best chicken I've ever had". Now, I've heard that line before...but very infrequently at best. Delish for cheese and chili pepper lovers alike!

Fish was cooked perfectly but the crust needed to be more browned.

Shrimp Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
This is quite good! For you cilantro lovers out there, adding a few teaspoons of chopped cilantro to the yogurt sauce added a delicious twist. And I think sour cream could be an easy substitute for the yogurt/mayo combo that would taste just as good. Great recipe!

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This recipe was totally bland! I did add an extra 1/2 c. of milk to the original recipe and baked for 15 minutes, so the casserole was nice and moist. But to make this recipe truly wonderful, you MUST: saute those onions and mushrooms first, throw in a clove or two of garlic, and add at least 1/2 tsp of salt and pepper. I couldn't even taste the tuna in this casserole, so I would add another can of tuna as well! Casserole out of a box has more flavor than this recipe as is.

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This is the BEST bbq sauce I have ever TASTED. We used a smoker box with wood chips in the grill to give it that perfect smoked flavor. I was shocked the ribs were so delicious with such a short cooking time, but they WERE!

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Def add double-triple soy sauce and garlic powder. And I added a touch more cornstarch at the end to thicken it up a bit. Otherwise, mwah!

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
I can't imagine jambalaya without shrimp and a tomato based sauce, so I added a half pound of shrimp and a can of diced tomatoes. Ahhhhhh.... Also substituted brown rice and turkey sausage to be on the healthy side. I cooked the rice separately in chicken broth and then added it to the gamesh at the end. I substituted cajun seasoning for hot sauce, and it was just right. One suggestion if you're going to have leftovers: add a healthy splash of chicken broth and that teaspoon of hot sauce right before you put it in the fridge. The heat and moisture continue to be absorbed by the rice, so these adjustments will kick start your leftovers for perfection.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
I made a healthier version that did not suffer at all! I'm a firm believer in fresh is better so I used a whole bag of fresh spinach and fried 4 strips of bacon. To avoid immediate cardiac arrest, I used skim milk instead of half and half, only 1 cup of mozzarella, and Healthy Request mushroom soup. It was delicious! If you really want to cut calories, you could even omit the bacon and mozzarella because the rest of the ingredients were so flavorful together. Still no substitute for butter though! :) I also skipped the first two steps (no need to cook the chicken first) and started by sauteing the mushrooms and spinach in a little butter. I then mixed in the other ingredients with a splash of white wine. I arranged the chicken in a casserole dish and dumped the sauce over the top, followed by the crumbled bacon. I baked at 400 for 25 minutes covered, then topped with mozz and baked 10 minutes more uncovered. I would call this a chicken bake instead of a casserole, but I will make it over and over.

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I had to use manicotti instead and followed reviews to up the garlic powder to 1 tsp and parsley and basil (dry) to 2 tsp and add a package of frozen spinach. My favorite piece of advice was to cook the pasta 3 minutes less than recommended then return cool water to the pot. Not only were the manicotti easy to work with, they were cooked to perfect al dente when they came out of the oven. My husband told me they were wonderful 3 times during dinner.
