Baked Brunch Omelet

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
Very good, but I think the ingredient list is supposed to say 1 1/2 CUPS of cheese... not POUNDS.

Thai Red Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
As some other suggested, I changed the recipe a bit; adding some peanut butter, lime juice, garlic, sprouts, and using sesame oil instead of olive oil. Turned out pretty good. Very nice color, though it was thicker than I expected it to be. Will definitely try again.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2012
Good stuff! As some other reviewers recommended, I dropped the salt from the marinade, and just added it to taste as the sauce was thickening in the final stages. A lot of the ingredients are not available in my area, so I left out the jalapeño (but threw in some habañero hot sauce), and substituted regular chili powder for the cayenne. Still came out great. My girlfriend really liked it too but she was mad at me so she wouldn't say so until the next day.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
These were awesome. For the last 5 minutes of baking, I covered I took off the foil, covered the top in a layer of cheddar cheese, and turned the oven to broil. It gave the potatoes a nice crispy crust of cheese on the top.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
I made this for my ESL students one night, and a student of mine from Mexican told me that it was a 9.5 out of 10.

Grilled Shrimp Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
These were really good and easy! I don't have a grill, so I just sauteed the shrimp in the lime-oil mixture. Was very tasty.

Easy Chicken Korma

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
This was pretty good. I don't understand why it's cooked in the oven though, as I thought Indian curries are usually prepared in a saucepan, but it works so I'm not complaining. Anyway, it's super easy and quite delicious!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
These are very good. I added some minced garlic into the bag with the olive olive and I thin that gave it a nice additional flavor.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
This was good, but I would recommend using smaller tortillas than 12 inches. They were a bit too big for the amount of chicken this recipe describes. Use smaller ones for fuller, more satisfying bites.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
Good stuff. I think the potatoes need something a little extra, maybe more salt or pepper than I used. Also, next time I'll probably cook the carrots with the meat mixture rather than mashing them. That would make the process much easier!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
This is a decent recipe, but it came out a bit dry. I would added a bit of water while blending, and it still didn't help so much. Next time, I'll try with more lemon.

Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
It came out really nice, but a significant portion of the rice ended up stuck to the pot. Is there a way to avoid this? Am I using the wrong kind of pot? Anyway, the rice itself was really good.

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
This was a really simple and easy side dish. Pretty nice, but I felt like it needed something a little more. Might try it with soy sauce next time. Overall, solid.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
I dunno what I did wrong, but the sauce curdled and got kind of dry. It still tasted good, just had a different texture than I think it's supposed to. Will try again.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
As an American expat living in Japan, it's really hard to find Honey Mustard in my local grocery stores. This recipe is a godsend. I had no idea it was so simple. Cheers!
