Cochinita Pibil

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
This recipe was AMAZING. So simple and turned out delicious! I made a few adjustments...couldn't find achiote paste, but I found it powdered. So I mixed that with water and rubbed it on the pork. I used 2/3 orange juice and 1/3 lemon juice. Also couldn't find habeneros so I used jalepenos instead. Cooked it in the slow cooker for 6 hours, then reduced the braising liquid a bit and poured it over the shredded pork. Served with home made corn tortillas, fresh cilantro and pickled red onions. I had the onions from another recipe so I used those instead of making a new batch, and just topped my tacos with it instead of pouring over all of the pork. It was juicy, savory, rich and FANTASTIC! Will definitely make this again.

Lamb Madras Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
Wonderful recipe. Took quite a while to make, but was so worth it. I used chicken instead of lamb and it turned out really well, but I think I will make it with lamb next time to get that extra flavour. The meat was tender and juicy, and the sauce was rich and beautifully fragrant. I've never cooked Indian food before so I was a bit intimidated, but it was pretty easy to make and turned out delicious!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
This turned out really well for me. The only thing I did differently was to add some crushed garlic to the butter and let it cook for a couple of minutes before adding the cream cheese (careful not to let the garlic burn or it will ruin your sauce). I omitted the garlic powder since I used fresh. I also added a pinch of nutmeg at the end. Was creamy, garlicy, and super easy. My boyfriend usually doesn't eat creamy sauces and he loved this. Will definitely make this again!

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
This was delicious. Made it for a party, I tripled the recipe and it was all gone by the end of the night. I served it with carbonated water (about 50/50 ratio) and it was still very strong and tasty. Guests raved about it. We even ate the liquor soaked cherries at the end!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
Very yummy. I diced the onions instead of slicing them, as other reviewers suggested. Also, I made about 1.5X the sauce. I suggest using a high quality, aged cheddar. That makes it extra cheesy and indulgent. I uncovered it for about the last 20 minutes of cooking so that it would get all bubbly and golden brown on top. Fantastic!

Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
I was pleasantly surprised with how well this turned out. Totally exceeded my expectations. Was looking for a change from regular old mashed potatoes and found this recipe so I gave it a shot. I only used about half as many potatoes (since I was only cooking for two) but still made the same amount of sauce. I put the rosemary through a spice grinder before adding it to the sauce. Other than that, made exactly as directed. They were super flavourful, crispy on the outside, and fluffy inside. Will make this again and again!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
Super yummy, and the perfect treat for a cold day! Made a couple of minor changes...I mixed the meat with the seasoning and bread crumbs a couple of hours ahead of time and let the mixture sit in the fridge so the flavours couple develop more. Also added some minced garlic, smoked paprika and a couple drops of hot sauce to the mix. I always make sure to cook a tiny bit of the hamburger mixture and taste it ahead of time to make sure the seasoning is right.... I highly recommend doing so, then you can make sure it's perfectly seasoned and adjust as needed before you go and cook the whole batch of meat. I browned the patties and then removed them from the pan, and then cooked the onions until they were very well browned. It gave the gravy a very rich onion flavour. Didn't have any cooking sherry so I just left that out. Added a couple dashes of Worcestershire to the gravy, and needed a bit of extra beef broth as it was a little thick for my liking. Served it with garlic rice and roasted veggies. It was delicious!

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
This was delicious! I butterflied my chicken breasts instead of halving them, then coated them in seasoned flour before breading them. I also added some honey mustard to the egg before dipping the floured chicken in. The mustard gives it a little extra zing. I seasoned the breadcrumb/cheese mixture also. I like to make sure that everything is seasoned so that I can add as much tastiness as possible :) Garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, smoked paprika, and Italian seasoning I believe is what I added. But I still think it would be great without, just a matter of personal preference. After breading it, I put it in the fridge for 30 mins to make sure the breading stuck to the chicken well. I didn't fry the chicken for as long as the recipe says because I was worried that it would dry out in the oven if it was cooked for so long in the pan. So I just made sure they were nicely browned (about 3 mins per side) then finished them off in the oven with the sauce. Added the cheese with 5 mins left as others have suggested. Chicken stayed crispier that way and the cheese didn't burn. The chicken came out super moist inside and packed with flavour. I served it with fettuccine Alfredo (used a sauce recipe from this site) and garden salad. My boyfriend ate all of his and the rest of mine that I couldn't finish! Will definitely make this again.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
This was fantastic. I blended all of the dressing ingredients in a food processor, and add a couple of extra cloves of garlic. I also added a touch of red wine vinegar. I made the dressing a day ahead so that the flavours would have more time to blend. The croutons were so yummy and easy too! The second time I made them, I added some Italian seasoning after cooking them. They were delicious both ways! Just make sure that you're super careful not to burn the garlic when you're making the garlic oil or else you'll ruin the taste. My fiancée loves this salad and told me that I should make it all of the time. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
This is a perfect meal for a week night dinner. Quick, simple, and tasty. It came out very garlicy and moist. I served it with a garlic aoli recipe from this site.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
Very tasty soup, perfect for a chilly winter's day. I added some orzo to mine, but unfortunately I must've added a bit too much (1/2 c. uncooked) because it absorbed a lot of the liquid and ended up being more of a stew. Next time, I'd add less, or else cook it before adding. However, the recipe was very tasty as written! I used frozen spinach instead of fresh, I think it would be great either way. It seems like a soup that would be very easy to customize and get creative with.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
My fiancée is eastern European and his mom makes a dish similar to this that he loves. I used small yellow potatoes so I didn't bother peeling them. I sliced them fairly thin and then par-boiled for about 10 minutes, then drained well and let them cool. I used smoked paprika and added a couple of cloves of crushed garlic when I added the spices to the meat/veggie mixture. I used low sodium beef broth instead of water because I had some in the fridge to use up, then skipped on the bouillon cube. Also doubled the amount of all liquids. The recipe is right in calling for just a pinch of cinnamon and cloves...they added a beautiful aroma without being overpowering. Allspice would have been nice too. I did 3 layers of potatoes instead of just 2 because some other reviewers mentioned that they thought it would be better with more. I also sprinkled each layer of potatoes with just a touch of vegeta seasoning (careful not to make it too salty though!) I made this the night before and we popped it in the oven the next night for dinner. Reduced the heat to 350 and cooked for about 30 mins only since I had parboiled the potatoes. Then uncovered and cooked about 15 mins longer to get the top potatoes a little crispy. It was fantastic! Will be making this one again!
