Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
I used ricotta in place of the cottage cheese, and the filling was delicious. My only complaint was that I felt like the grated Parmesan cheese didn't melt in the filling, and it took away some of the smoothness. I'd leave it out next time. I used a 6-blend cheese (8 oz bag) and put the extra 2 oz on top in place of the parmesan. This is a good recipe for shells for someone who doesn't like spinach inside the filling.

Easy Raspberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
This was pretty good, and really easy. I bought 2 cans of mix (regular Pink Lemonade since I too could not find raspberry lemonade) and a large bottle of sprite to make it, and added extra lime juice. It was tangy and sweet.

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
This was very good and exactly as I remembered from when my mom made it. My meat didn't come with a seasoning packet so I was worried, but the meat had plenty of flavor. I followed the advice of other reviewers and added a 16.9 oz bottle of beer at the beginning when I added the water, and the meat had wonderful flavor. I didn't even bother with the butter and parsley at the end, and I also just added my chunked veggies to the pot during the last 45 minutes of cooking.

Chicken Broccoli Ca - Unieng's Style

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
This was really good, and the sauce was great. I would have preferred more broccoli and greens, but otherwise, the taste was great and I'd definitely make it again. The only problem was that it didn't taste as good after reheating it the next day in the microwave, but it's still healthier than take-out and easy.

Penne with Garlicky Broccolini

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I didn't read other reviews before making this, but I could see when I cooked the broccoli (instead of broccolini) that the bacon grease was being absorbed. I added olive oil to both the broccoli and the finished dish and added extra cheese, but there is something missing. There needs to be more of a sauce for the pasta. It was good, but I've made carbonara before with a better recipe, so I wouldn't feel the need to make this again.

Drop Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
This was really good. The biscuits are pretty straight forward, so next time I would double the salt. I did pour pure maple syrup over them, which helped the flavor and added sweetness. The gravy was really good, but I had to add extra salt and pepper to taste. My fiancee loved this, and said it's better than the biscuits and gravy at Ihop.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I made this for myself for dinner last night because I was exhausted after work but craving something "bad for me" (and I was too lazy/cheap to stop for chinese food). It was pretty good, but I put too much sesame oil and had to add more soy sauce. It's good, but other than the taste of soy/sesame, there's not a complex flavor. I was out of peas, so I used corn, and also chopped some scallions. I used jasmine rice since I had it on hand. I can't wait to eat the leftovers.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of using other reviewer's suggestions and not using as much salt. I used 2 tsp. of salt for the marinade, and 2 tsp. for the sauce-keep in mind that the sauce reduces, and the salt will be more concentrated as well, so next time, I'll only use 1 tsp. of salt in the sauce. Instead of grilling the chicken, I threaded the chunks onto skewers and put them under my broiler on a rack, over foil so there was little mess. The char/sear on the chicken is definitely a good thing, so I wouldn't skip that step. Overall, this was really delicious, and the level of heat was fine for me (I added more smoked paprika to the sauce, too).

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I scaled down the recipe to make enough for just me for breakfast, and it was so easy and delicious! I used a Yukon gold potato, 2 tbs. of egg substitute, 1 tbs. flour, and salt and pepper. I fried it in a combo of butter and oil (sorry, arteries!) and it came out crispy on the outside and soft and yummy on the inside. 1 potato definitely makes enough for 2, especially if you have eggs or something with it.
