Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
Due to the economy, and my shortened work hours, my kitchen cabinets are relatively empty...something I've never experienced before. So I had to bring some salad home from my job's cafeteria (along with an apple, and a yogurt) so I could have something to eat for dinner. I opened my fridge only to realize I had no dressing. Jumped onto this site and found this recipe. All I can say is it came in REAL handy and did the job just fine. I used Sherry vinegar because that's all I had. I used only sugar because I'm out of honey and didn't have money to buy more. I used onion powder and dried cilantro flakes, once again it was all I had. It tasted just fine and I actually prefer it over the bottled stuff. A MILLION THANKS!

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
This was DELICIOUS and I'm not much of a red meat eater. I eat red meat MAYBE once/month. I did make a couple of changes: - I used sirloin steak because I couldn't afford filet mignon. - I did first season the meat with adobo instead of using just salt. - I used Al Jerez (Sherry) Vinegar because I didn't have balsamic vinegar - I used Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon - I mashed one clove of garlic and rubbed it into the meat after seasoning with adobo - I doubled the wine/vinegar mixture and let the steak marinate in it overnight. - I didn't cook the steak in the sauce, I grilled it on my little George Forman grill. - I added 1 teaspoon sugar to the sauce and then let it simmer with sliced portobello mushrooms until it reduced in half - I served it with Smothered Green Beans and Honey Roasted Red Potatoes both found on this site. ABSOLUTELY SUPERB!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Used home made graham cracker crust because I just happened to have one prepared. Used peanut butter only. Thought peanut butter mixture was too thick so before folding with homemade whipped cream I added about 1/4 cup leftover heavy cream to peanut butter mixture(didn't have milk). Then I folded in the whipped cream. Topped with drizzled nutella! SMOOTH, RICH, LIP SMACKING GOOD! THANK YOU!

Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
Never really made lentils before and this was the perfect recipe for a first timer. I did make some tweeks due to what I had/didn't have on hand. Didn't use celery, didn't use curry, didn't use, turmeric. DID use 1 chopped red onion, DID use 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed oregano, DID use 1 cooking spoon of spanish style tomato sauce, DID use 1 packet of ham bouillon, DID stir in cilantro at the end. DELISH!!!!!!!!!!

Spicy Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
This was absolutely soooo delish! And sooooo easy & quick. Perfect to make when you want something good but don't feel like cooking after coming home from a long day's work. I like my food strongly flavored so I did make some changes. I also took note of what other reviewers mentioned, I also wanted the dish to be saucy. Sooo I used:5 garlic cloves minced instead of the two suggested I didn't have chili oil or the money to buy it so I used olive oil (which I already had on hand) instead and added 1/2 teaspoon achiote powder to the oil for coloring and 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes for heat. I increased the sugar to 2 teaspoons because I added 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of oyster sauce (instead of the 5 tablespoons suggested) to make it saucier. also added about 1 teaspoon of ginger powder. Forgot to mention, I also tossed in at the last moment for a crunch about 2 cups of green beans that had been halved. LOVED IT! I DEFINITELY WILL BE FORWARDING THE RECIPE TO FRIENDS AND THE BEST THING IS I DON'T HAVE TO COOK TOMORROW BECAUSE I HAVE A LITTLE LEFT OVER.

Acapulco Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
Definitely a keeper for a busy weeknight or lazy weekend! Made a number of tweaks only because I like to have alot different flavors blending in my food: 28 ounce can fire roasted tomatoes instead of fresh chopped tomato; 3 garlic cloves minced; 3tbs chili powder instead of 1; first seasoned chicken with adobo powder; add 1 packet chicken bouillon in powder form; 1 teaspoon dried crushed oregano; 1 teaspoon ground cumin; and 1 chopped zucchini or squash.
