Asian Pasta Salad with Beef, Broccoli and Bean Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
my husband and my nine year old son and sixteen year old daughter could not stop eating this! SO good! I omitted the quarter cup vegetable oil, it didn't need it.

Awesome Greens and Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
AKA "Farmer Joe's Dinner" We agreed, this looks like farm food (in all the best ways) It was delicious! I did add about 6 cloves of garlic (I kid you not) and served it over cornmeal mush. We also had red pepper flakes at the table for anyone who wanted them.

Potato Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
eh...I probably won't make this again. It was a lot of work to shred potatoes and onions and wait on it to bake and bake it four different times before serving. It was a decent potato casserole.

Cowboy Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
SO weird...and SO good. I would have given five stars, but its too soupy to serve as tacos. We made nachos instead and the whole family enjoyed. Its a silly recipe, but we'll make it again. I'm sure of it.

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
I don't know, I was expecting something fresh and vibrant, and it just came out kind of muddled. I think 12 oz of bacon was way too much. Also based on other reviews cut the chipotle pepper down to just one, and I scraped the seeds out of it. Thank goodness! It was perfectly spicy with just the one, it would have been way too hot with more.

Pablito's Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
definitely will be making this again, probably for guests next time! I typically don't post reviews when I've altered the recipe, but because I think these alterations will make this recipe more accessible to more cooks I am going to share them. 1st, Sorrel: Nowhere to be found where I live, so googled possible substitutions. The recommended substitution was spinach and a little lemon juice. Since the recipe already called for a significant amount of lime juice, I opted for spinach, the called for lime juice, and the zest off half the lime. The sauce was DELICIOUS. It will definitely be making multiple appearances at our table. 2nd: letting the tortilla dough rest an hour. I was surprised that the recipe didn't call for hot water to mix the dough which is definitely a very traditional part of making tortillas. So, I heated my water to boiling before adding it and the melted butter to the flour mix. This meant I didn't need to let the dough rest, it was ready to make into tortillas as soon as I had it portioned out. That said, this became a very quickly moving recipe at that point. So, if you want to take your time in the kitchen preparing the chicken, onions, and kale, no reason why not to just follow the original instructions and let the dough rest.

Big Ben's Beef Machaca

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
Tastes EXACTLY like my local hole in the wall's Machaca Beef. I wasn't sure what some reviewers meant by "didn't taste very Mexican." The large amounts of cumin and oregano are tell tale signs that this dish is going to taste authentic. I know some people expect Mexican to taste one certain way, but that's like expecting bacon wrapped little smokies and boxed mac and cheese to share the same flavor profile since they are both American junkfood, right? Also, this dish is supposed to be soupy, whenever you get it at a restaurant, the beef is making the tortilla or bun soggy, from all the tomatoes and peppers and onions and beef drippings.

Thai Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
not quite as easy as going to our favorite Thai restaurant, but really delicious, and not difficult to make. The prep is the most work, and I highly recommend having everything prepped before you even heat a pan, this dish is quick moving once you start cooking. Like another reviewer stated, authentic Thai food is going to have tender crisp vegetables, so basically just heating the veggies through is enough cooking.

Spinach Pesto Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Other than about tripling the amount of spinach and pesto, I made this recipe exactly as written and my chicken turned out moist and delicious.

Super Summer Kale Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
So delicious! Make sure to assemble it ahead of time to let the kale soften and the flavors develop. I have made it twice now and my family really enjoys it.

Serbian Cevapcici

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
because I didn't know how to say the name of this recipe, I told the family we were having Serbian hamburgers, and they at them up! We made the Serbian Flat bread recipe, and some cucumber yogurt, and then served tomatoes and onions with it. We will be making these again for sure. The flavor was so delicious. By the way, we could not get ground lamb and so we did only the beef and pork and it still came out very flavorful.

Greek Steffotto

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
Cooked this in a slow cooker instead of in the oven and had fantastic results. I followed the recipe exactly (using the whole cloves indicated in the directions instead of the ground indicated in the ingredients list.) The only thing I would caution is that when the directions say "salt to taste" what it really means is bring out the big-guns, this dish needs some salt! I have a tendency to under-salt my dishes and don't usually miss it, but despite adding probably a teaspoon and a half of salt to the dish, even I found myself salting my table serving. (ask my hubs you will nearly NEVER see me salting my dish). Other than underestimating how much salt was really needed in this dish, it was simple, quick to assemble, and delicious. We served ours over spaghetti and enjoyed it that way.

Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I'd give it five, but my picky kids aren't enjoying the texture. I also doubled the seasoning and found that to be perfect.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
4 stars for being just the taddest bit bland. I added some roasted pasilla peppers though and it brightened right up for a dish my whole family was quite surprised by. My kids balked at it immediately, and my husband said he'd go get something later and not to bother serving it. BUT....they all were pleasantly surprised by how delicious it turned out. Definitely will be making againl.

Baked Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
I'm not realy sure what's holding me back from a 5 star rating, perhaps the fact that we don't normally eat this kind of food, but these were definitely a hit with the kids and the hubby, and they were ridiculously simple. We served ours with some homemade raspberry jam and some sliced cantaloupe. Kind of a "Breakfast for Dinner" kind of night.

Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
Insanely delicious. We served over steamed brown jasmine rice for a hearty meal. Don't skip the cilantro, it really brightens the dish.
