Cajun Chicken

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
This chicken has a wonderful flavor. I reduced the oil(used olive oil) to 1 cup and mixed all in a ziploc bag. I also did not pound the chicken breasts. The seasoning turned into more of a paste than a liquid marinade. I left the chicken in the paste for about 1 1/2 hours, then grilled them. Not too spicey, just right. Served with Greek Potatoes from this site and a tossed salad. Made a wonderfully light meal!

Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
Awesome...if I could give it 10 stars, I would. I decreased the sesame oil to about 5 T, but kept the rest of the ingredients as written. I marinated it in the fridge for 24 hours and cooked on the grill. We both prefer this to BBQ chicken. The flavor was off the charts. I plan on using the left over marinade that was rendered down on the stove top with pork chops in the oven.

Slow Cooker Guisado Verde

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
I am rating this on the changes I made with other reviewer's suggestions. I used 3 pounds pork loin. Did not brown it first. I happened to have the tomatillo salsa, so add the chopped jalabeno. I substituted 12 oz beer for the water and did not add any more liquid. I also added about 5 tsp chopped garlic. My husband loved it and said to put it to the top of the rotations. I thought it lacked a little something. I think next time I will use the salsa verde with jalapeno as I could have used some subtle heat. There also was A LOT of liquid, even with only 12 oz added. The beer maybe added a strange taste, so next time I will use chicken stock and reduce it to 8 oz. It will be even better leftover, I think. Also plan to make pulled pork sandwiches. Definately a good recipe to play with. Thanks

Grilled Fish Steaks

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
Made this using a firm fish(marlin) and marinaded it for about 6 hours. I felt there was very little flavor. Maybe it was because I reduced the salt as other reviewers suggested, but I don't think so. I added garlic, but it certainly needs something else...maybe a few hot pepper flakes. It was good enought to keep and work with to make it 5 stars.

Spicy Pork Chops with Herbed Roasted New Potatoes

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
The potatoes were the best part of this meal...very lovely flavors when roasted in the oven. I didn't have the cardamom pods, so omitted that ingredient. My pork chops had a good flavor, but the meat was on the dry side. Next time I would put the chops on top of the potatoes and cover with foil to try and keep the juices in. No comment from my husband, which means it was just OK. We love pork chops, so this recipe might just fade away.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Another winner, winner dinner!!! I made it at my daughter's house and that required some changes. To begin with, she didn't have lemon juice so I had to use lime juice. Secondly, the grill had run out of propane so I had to brown the chicken on the stove top. I also made the mistake of measuring the cayenne pepper over the marinate mixture, so I had too much in the marinade. All that said, it made little difference and the result was outstanding. I doubled the sauce, but really wouldnt' have had to. I had alot left over. I used garam masala for both the marinade and sauce and omitted the cilantro, as we don't like it. Also only added a slight amount of jalapeno and I was afraid I overdid it with the cayenne pepper. I thought the heat was just right. Our 8 year old grandaughter ate it up without batting an eye. I plan on doing a custom recipe so I can duplicate this one! Thanks for the great reciope!

Boozy Birdy

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
This is a winner, winner recipe. The only thing I would change is to use real minced garlic instead of garlic powder...and I would add alot more. The marinade, when boiled and reduced, cooks all the rawness of the chicken and makes it safe for consumption. When you add the BBQ sauce to the thickened marinade, it makes a glaze like sauce that just bumps up the already yummy grilled chicken to a whole different level. You can change the flavor of the sauce by changing the kind of BBQ sauce you use. I plan on using a spicy BBQ sauce next time, but any BBQ sauce will make it a winner dinner. I can always tell when dinner is a hit...my husband says it is good without me asking and goes for seconds. He thinks using Guiness beer next time is called for...I think any dark beer will work!!!!

Sun-Dried Tomato and Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
This was just barely OK the first night. Very ordinary. Most of the flavor was from the blue cheese. The leftover burgers were better, but still not something I think I would make again. There are better burger recipes out there.

Cajun Baked Catfish

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
I used other reviewer's suggestions and mixed egg, milk and hot sauce together in a ziploc bag and added the catfish pieces. I omitted the oil. I mixed the dry ingredients along with 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs in another ziploc bag and dipped each catfish piece to cover in the dry ingredients. I used garlic powder and decreased the thyme to 1 tsp. It was still too much thyme...it overpowered the flavors. I baked in the oven for 20 minutes, but it needed another 10 minutes to get tender. It was nice and crunchy. Next time I will try without the thyme and maybe substitute parsley. It was good, but needs some tweaking. Probably would be good with any fish fillets.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
I rate this on the flavor, not how they turned out for me. I followed another poster's suggestion and layered the ingredients in a pan with flour tortillas. It turned out a gooey mess that tasted wonderful, but looked bad. I used homemade enchilada sauce(Mrs. Espys from this site) and think I used too much sauce. I also didn't have enough cottage cheese, so I added some refried beans I had on hand. That added texture and taste and I would do that again. The chicken I used was leftover Sweet and Spicey Picante chicken from this site. It already had salsa in it, so I just shredded it, added the taco seasoning and water and stirred it together. My husband said it was really good. A do over will happen and I will make the actual rolled enchiladas using corn tortillas. The cottage cheese was a great ingredient as it allowed less actual shredded cheese and still gave that rich flavor.

Mrs Espy's Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Wonderful enchilada sauce! I used chicken broth instead of water, cut down the chili powder a bit and used 8 oz tomato sauce. Much better than store bought!

Sweet and Spicy Picante Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
I used frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts, placed them in a crockpot, mixed the sauce ingredients, using my own homemade salsa, and poured it over the chicken. Cooked on low 8 hours. It was moist and delicious. I plan on using the leftover chicken in enchiladas.

New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
This was just OK. A little bland, but a different way to fix potatoes. I might add a little cayenne pepper or something to zip it up. Think I have alot more potato recipes in my box that are good to fix this again anytime soon.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
Didn't brown the tenderloin, just put it in the slow cooker and poured the sauce over it. Didn't turn it during cooking as that slows down the cooking because you are lifting the lid. I used 1 T. Thai Red Chili Paste instead of the chile pepper, but next time will add more as I think it needed more heat. I mixed 1 T to 1/4 cup cold water and added it to the drippings and cooked on the stove top until thick and used it for gravy. It was wonderful!

Cindy's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
Followed recipe as written. It wasn't quite spice enough. Maybe next time I will use Rotel tomatoes to zing it a bit.

Ladybug's Seattle Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Fixed as written, except used panko crumbs mixed with Italian seasonings instead of bread crumbs. Aslo used Old Bay Seasoning as I didn't have salmon seasoning. It had wonderful flavor. This recipe would take care of any "fishy" tasting fish.

Slow-Cooker Lasagne

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Wasn't sure how this would turn out but it was fantastic! Used low fat cottage cheese instead of ricotta and couldn't tell the difference. Added 2 links of italian sausage , squeezed out of the casing and broken up in the pan and 1 T minced garlic. Actually used about 8 noodles and used the full cup of water, cooked on low for 3.5 hours, topped with remaining cheese and cooked another 30 minutes. It was perfect.
