Mom's Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
The favor from adding the "untraditional" ingredients made it tasty, but I found the consistency a bit "soggy" compared with traditional meatloaf. I would make again, but probably with some tweaks.

Apple Filled Chicken in Pecan Creme Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2005
This is very different from any chicken dish I ever made, so I tried to not judge it hastily, but instead took a few moments to truly savor it and decide whether or not I liked it.... and I did like it, with some adjustments. I read other reviews and noted that a couple folks thought the sugar amount was too much, so I, too, cut it back to 2 TBSP, but between that and the vanilla, I did still find the flavor a bit too sweet. I ended up putting salt and pepper on my cutlet to cut back the sweetness. I also subsituted almonds for pecans, because that's all I had on hand, and that worked fine. I had neglected to re-read the sauce preparation directions, and so I did not heat over a double boiler, but directly over a flame in a sauce pan, and it did make the egg yolks a little clumpy, not frothy, but taste-wise, it was OK. My husband said he enjoyed it, and that I should make this again. My children found it so-so, but again, I think because it was such an unfamiliar taste for chicken. I am giving this 4 stars, because I think the combination of ingredients was very unique (but taste-wise, I'd rate it a 3).

Cheesy Catfish

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
Loved it! I read all the reviews beforehand, and made some alterations accordingly. I, too, used bread crumbs instead of flour. I also turned the boiler on for 5 mins at the end to crispen it up. Everybody in the family loved it! The combination of ingredients (especially the drizzled butter) reminded me of something I've tasted before in a restaurant! thanks.

Tandoori Chicken I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2004
I found the proportion of the Allspice WAY TOO OVERPOWERING for the dish. Luckily, I sampled the sauce before I marinated the chicken in it, so I took some liberties and added a bit more yogurt, one teaspoon of sugar, and a handful (1/2 c maybe??) of shredded coconut to the mix, and that toned down the bitterness of it. Even still, my family found the dish too spicy and didn't eat much of it. I did not read the reviews ahead of time, like I usually do. I definitely think a different combination of spices would have worked better.

No-Fry Spicy Potato Skins

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
These came out great! I didn't use any coriander, but what I did do was mix some shredded cheddar cheese with the other spices called for, and I sprinkled this over the potatoes to bake for those last 15 minutes. Served with sour cream on top. Yum! Thanks.

Crisp Tortellini Bites

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
Sorry, but as another reviewer also stated, these were very dry, bland and unpopular with my party guests.

Juicy Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2004
Unlike I usually do with other recipes, I actually followed this one exactly as written. I am giving this a 3-star, mostly because I thought the use of butter was unique... however, I, like the other reviews, found that cooking the meat frozen left me unable to tenderize it, and made the meat was tough. I might try this again in the future, but instead, would thaw & tenderize the steaks, and then "marinate" in a butter/worchestershire/garlic/salt/pepper sauce for a few hours before broiling.

Eggnog Thumbprints

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2004
This was my 2nd year baking these Cookies for Christmas. I loved them last year and again this year and they are popular with my recipients. The best, unique part is the FILLING (after all, it finally occurred to me that this is a standard sugar cookie recipe. So, to save time this year, I simply quadrupled the recipe to use the same dough for my raspberry thumbprints and also for my cut-outs). Thanks for sharing -- I'll continue to make these each Christmas!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2003
I make Tilapia often, and try different recipes each time. This one was a real winner with my family -- they said the best to date! I was in a hurry, and the "no marinating process" made it super quick and easy! I didn't even bother with the 2 step process of broiling first before spreading the sauce -- I coated both sides with the sauce and simply broiled for about 5 minutes on each side. Thanks!

Anniversary Chicken II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2003
This is my 2nd time making this dish. My family really loves it (because of the bacon topping, I know!) It's a great mix of flavors which I never would have thought to combine. I "marinate" the chicken in the stir-fry (ie, soy) sauce and transfer it to the baking dish without browningpart-cooking it, and this works fine, too.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2003
A great alternative to marinating and grilling salmon, as I usually do. My family much preferred this "less fishy taste". Instead of just topping with the butter/honey mustard mixture, I instead covered/dunked the entire fillet with it (as you'd do with an egg batter) and breaded the whole thing before baking. I ommitted the pecans, because I didn't have any onhand, but I bet that would make it even better. Thanks!

Chocolate Sausage (Salame di Cioccolato)

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2003
Despite your warning about the raw eggs, I took a chance and made the log for a party. I was very sick the next day and have to assume it was from that. Fortunately (unfortunately for your recipe review, sorry) it didn't go over well with my friends -- no one had more than a bite -- so to my knowledge, they didn't get sick. The feedback was that it was too rich. Although the consistency was nice when it first came out of the freezer, it got soggy relatively quickly after that. I used peanuts instead of almonds (that's all I had on hand). I thought the taste wasn't bad, but I'm too spooked about the raws eggs now to ever make this again. Sorry.
