Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
What oh what did I do wrong. I baked these wings exactly according to other rave reviews. I started with frozen wings and perhaps that was my first mistake. In the end these wings were slimy and greasy and awful. The batter never crisped up even after spraying with cooking oil. I was sad.

Eileen's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Meatloaf isn't meatloaf without ketchup. Slap the ketchup-based glaze from "Glazed meatloaf II" onto this recipe, and you will be very VERY satisfied.

Fried Rice with Cilantro

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
My fried rice was dripping, and I mean DRIPPING with oil when I made this recipe. Cut the oil in half, and enjoy the otherwise great flavor of this recipe.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Found this recipe and gave it to my man for Turkey Day. Thought I hated squash. I suppose you could say I was flabbergasted.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
I will halve the sugar in the crust next time as it was a little gritty on my teeth, but ooooooohhhhhhhh was the pumpkin cheesecake delightful.

Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This is a great recipe that I can't seem to screw up. Once I substituted an entirely different stinky wedge cheese that I happened to have in the fridge. I finely shredded it, and it was fantastical. Another time I used cottage cheese instead of sour cream out of sheer laziness. Gross, right? No! YUM! Of course, it is also very good if you just follow the recipe like a normal human being...

Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Tip: Strain the fresh basil out if you want to save this dressing for later. (I always refrigerate my leftover dressing and this one failed me when I saw the sad black-looking wilted basil floating atop a sea of oil a couple days down the road.)

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Hint: Due to the thickness of the batter make these pancakes small so the middle has time to cook through before they are overly browned or (godforbid) black!

Chicken Broccoli Ca - Unieng's Style

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
The ingredients in this recipe are spectacular together. The cook times suggested are not. Substitute 5-7 minutes for each recipe segment that recommends 10. A couple other helpful hints: My sauce was completely reduced by the time I added cornstarch, so I added back about 3/4 c. water (this will vary depending on cook times). I also added a generous splash of soy sauce and oyster sauce here to bring out these flavors. Finally, do not add the bok choy until the last minutes of cooking so the leaves maintain some crispness instead of resembling soggy spinach. The flavor of this recipe couldn't get any better. Oh, and beware that a whole teaspoon of pepper makes this dish pretty spicy. Use a half teaspoon if you want to avoid that.

Thai Chicken with Basil Stir Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
This stir fry is really good but the flavors in the sauce are so complex it is difficult to taste any of the individual ingredients. I might try it without pepper flakes and ginger next time to bring out the basil and coconut...?

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
OH. MY. GOD. OMIGOD. YES. YES! YESYESYESYESYES!!!!!.....Ahhhhhhh...... Take the other reviewers advice and do not combine the ingredients until ready to serve. Have 4 pots and pans on all 4 burners at the same time. It's not even bad, because you can prep it all first and then just stare at it and wait for it to cook. Then throw the sauce (1), veggies (2), and pork (3; drained of course), on top of the rice (4), and you will have the best S-N-S pork you have ever eaten. MWAH!

Jen's Fresh and Spicy Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Want to kick this salsa up a notch? Forget the jalepeno, hot sauce, and pepper. Add several chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (found canned in the Mexican aisle) for an awesome chipotle salsa that is just as fresh and even more amazing! I also used fresh garlic and a half teaspoon of cumin... You won't be sorry!

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.

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.

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.
