Scallop Scampi

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
I have tried other scampi recipes on this website, but this one is hands down the best. I didn't have fresh parsley, so I used 2 tsp. of dried. I omitted the onion, simply because I thought a large onion would overpower the garlic flavor, which I like better in scampi. I doubled the sauce like other reviewers suggested, because as is, it is not even enough for 4. I used langostinos (tiny lobster tails) instead of scallops too, and served this with a lemon wedge, extra romano cheese and semolina italian bread to mop up the wonderful sauce. Everyone raved about it and went back for seconds. I will definitely make it again!

Three Cheese Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I found this recipe to be terribly bland. I sprinkled a pinch of cayenne pepper on top of my own portion, which made it a little zippier, but neither my children nor my husband liked it at all, so I will not be making it again.

Lemon Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
Wow! This is just so unexpectedly delicious and versatile! I used it with lemon chicken pasta purses, along with crab cakes one time, and another time with breaded tilapia and the same pasta. Just let the sauce cool a bit before adding the lemon juice, or it gets a little clumpy looking. Also, I didn't have a lime, but just doubled up on the lemon juice and it was still awesome! This is a keeper!

Wicked Garlic Tofu Saute

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
This is now my favorite tofu recipe! First, I steamed a crown of fresh broccoli, and a cup of fresh chopped carrots, and set them aside. Then I fried a chopped, small onion and a pint of fresh sliced mushrooms, and mixed them with the carrots and broccoli. Then I did Step 1 of the recipe directions. After Step 1, I left everything in the pan, added the rest of the veggies I already cooked, and the oyster sauce (and a shot or two extra due to all of the veggies), and served the dish over brown rice. I thought it was full of flavor, and my tofu-hating family absolutely loved it!

Chocolate Yum-Yum Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
This cake was only "yum-yum" right out of the oven, which is why I'm giving it 3 stars. However, by the next day it wasn't so good. The taste was bland- not quite a good chocolate cake, and not quite a good spice cake. The texture was fragile and crumbly, possibly because it contains no eggs. It broke coming out of the bundt pan, and when I cut or ate it, it was reduced to bits (which are now all over my kitchen floor). At least my young children liked it. My husband loves cake and chocolate, but would not eat this after tasting it. So, I will not be making this again.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
These were fantastic, but NOT moist! First, you do not need to dip the fork in sugar when you press these cookies flat. They are sweet enough! Don't press the cookies flat if you don't like thin & crispy cookies. Leave them in little balls for thicker and more chewy cookies. Finally, I added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to the batter and then divided it into 3 bowls. In one, I added 1/3 cup of raisins, in another, 1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and in the last one, I added 1/4 cup of dried cranberries and 1/4 cup of shredded coconut. They needed a full 10 minutes to bake and they were all DELICIOUS!!!

Barlow's Blackened Catfish

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
My husband does not like fish, but he cleans his plate every time I make this! I have tried this with several other kinds of fish (cod, tilapia), but the catfish tastes the best. I follow the recipe exactly, except I never have lemon pepper, so I squeeze fresh lemon over the filets. I also brush the filets with dijon mustard after I coat them with salad dressing. It adds a delicious zing. Also, if you don't like things really spicy, you can cut the cayenne pepper in half and just use a little more garlic powder to make up for it. I usually serve this with a tossed salad and some Zatarin's jumbalaya rice with diced kielbasa.

Award Winning Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I made quite a few changes to this, and boy was it great! If I haven't mentioned an ingredient in this review, it is because I used what was in the original recipe. I used 2 1/2 pounds of lean ground beef (I had about 10 people to feed and I like it meaty and thick), so I doubled the chili mix, the kidney beans, steak sauce, green and red pepper, as well as red pepper flakes and cumin. Instead of stewed tomatoes, I used one big (32 oz?) can of organic fire roasted chopped tomatoes with the juice. I did NOT add carrots or celery. I added about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper, and about 5 tablespoons of fresh cilantro. Finally, I shook in some chili powder to taste. Of course I sprinkle this with freshly grated cheddar before serving and serve corn bread or muffins on the side.

Feta Cheese Foldovers

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
This is my favorite appetizer recipe and they go like hotcakes every time I make them. I use Athenos feta, double the green onions, and add diced red bell pepper to 1/2 of the mixture so I can offer two different flavors. I think brushing them with the egg mixture makes them look a lot nicer, and you definitely have to let them cook until they are puffy and golden brown. They stay very hot inside for a long time, so warn your guests to be careful if they grab them right out of the oven! Next time I will try the flavored feta cheeses, as other reviewers have recommended, for a little zing. But, these are melt in your mouth delicious just the way they are!

Tomato Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I did not think this recipe was good at all. It came out very goopy and did not taste properly cooked, even though I let it go 5 minutes longer than suggested, fully drained my tomatoes, and let the pie stand for 10 minutes. I also felt that it was very bland. If you still feel you must try this, I would recommend the following adjustments: 1) the pie crust does not cook through during the cooking time, which can be fixed by pre-cooking just the crust for 10-15 mintues or until lightly browned; 2) the onions, although I sliced them very thin, were practically raw. I would recommend sauteing them first before putting them into the pie. I think this recipe might be salvaged by mixing two eggs and some crumbled bacon in with the cheese/mayo mixture, and increasing the cooking time by about 10 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Orange Beef-Style Tofu Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
This is sure to please even tofu skeptics. It's very good, but not great. The cooking time is a little off. My tofu slices were about a 1/2 inch thick, and with a standard wok, it took at least 20 - 25 minutes to fry it all. The sauce took me about 20 minuts to make as well. I added chopped red pepper, which added additional crunch, color and sweetness. Since I didn't have chili paste, I used a tablespoon of sweet chili sauce. I also added 2 dried diced red chili peppers, since other reviewers said the sauce wasn't spicy enough, but it was too HOT, so next time I'll just use one. I used about double the corn starch, since I like the sauce thicker. In addition, I would definitely recommend doubling the sauce, because it is not enough to cover all of the tofu plus rice noodles. I would recommend not putting the tofu back into the wok. If you just place tofu slices on top of the rice noodles and spoon the sauce over the top, the tofu stays nice and crunchy. Finally, I served this with some fresh pineapple on the side, which really complemented the dish quite nicely.

Stuffed Pork Chops with Gorgonzola and Apple

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2004
This recipe is absolutely delicious and is perfect for a small dinner party! It's so easy, but everyone will think you've slaved in the kitchen for hours! I used 1 granny smith apple for each chop, and I added the leftover apple stuffing to the sauce in Step 6 after adding the sherry. I also didn't understand what it means to "reincorporate the cheese" in Step 6 since I already used the 1/4 cup specified, so I just added an additional 1/4 cup of gorgonzola for that step, and the sauce came out marvelous!

Bottom Round Roast with Onion Gravy

Reviewed: May 21, 2004
This recipe was tasty and very easy. The vinegar gives the gravy a nice little tangy flavor. I used a 2 lb. roast, so I used 2 onions instead, and only had to cook it about 2 hours. My husband liked it so I'll likely make it again sometime.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2003
I just adjusted this recipe to make 3 pounds of green beans and served it to 22 people. I didn't change the recipe at all, except I didn't add salt or pepper. Everyone really liked it and the entire bowl disappeared! You know it's good when people ask you for the recipe!
