Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
If you use frozen shrimp, don't let it sit overnight, the texture gets weird. Added chopped tomato, seedless cucumber and celery. Used sriracha (rooster) sauce instead of horseradish and V8+clamato. SOOOO GOOD!!!!

Mango Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I stumbled on this while looking for a different mango chicken dish on the site and decided to try it as it seemed easier :) The taste was awesome, but I did make a few tweaks that I think were very helpful. I seasoned the chicken before cooking with some of the salt, pepper, cayenne, curry (which I at least tripled!) plus a lil bit of cornstarch. Helped the chicken take on a lot more flavor. Like others, I used a whole can of light coconut milk. Lastly, I used a whole can of diced tomatoes instead of the paste. Because of the extra liquid, be sure to increase the seasonings! I just kind of eyeballed it. Deeeeelicious.

Vinegar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
My poor nut- and egg-allergic child has been deprived of cookie-making for so many years...I tried various recipes but they were so...weird, and labor-intensive to boot that i gave up and just made him rice krispie treats. Bu this recipe was SO easy and so delicious...the kids were super excited to help make them and we ate them almost as fast as they came out of the oven (though i think they're actually better and a little less greasy-tasting the next day). Made them as is except for leaving out the nuts. Baked on a silpat - easy peasy. We decided to call them Armpit Cookies bc my husband walked in to the kitchen while we were mixing up the dough and asked why it smelled like armit in there. :)

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I would give it 4 stars based on my modifications but thought it unfair given that I didn' t follow the instructions exactly. I can see how they would be terrific with peanut butter and they were super easy to make! I have a peanut-allergic child so I used sunbutter (sunflower seed butter, available at Trader Joe's and similar stores) instead. The flavor is a lot more subtle, so next time I'd increase the sunbutter and/or decrease the chocolate (scandalous!). Even with the proportions as written, mine did not firm up until I put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes. After that I kept it in the fridge and it was fine. I ate about half of it myself :( Thanks for an easy and yummy recipe!

Mahi Mahi with Coconut Rice and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
EAsy and delicious! Made it for a guest last night and it was perfect. Some notes: 1. Used splenda and LIGHT coconut milk but I'm sure the non-healthy version would be even better. In fact, I would definitely use regular coconut milk, maybe could get away with half-sugar, half-splenda. But everyone else thought it was delicious, maybe it was in my head. 2. Used frozen cubed mango from Trader Joe's. Couldn't be simpler! I detest prepping mango, and in a dish like this where you're going to cook the mango anyway, this is probably even better. 3. Cooked the rice in a rice cooker w/ 2 cups of chicken broth then on the stove with the coconut milk. 4. Grilled on our George Foreman grill for 4 minutes. Perfect!

Turkey Bow Tie Skillet

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Excellent dish! I skipped the celery and added some celery seed and a little basil and cumin, along with the chili and garlic salt - all while browning the meet to give it some flavor. RE: vinegar/sugar...I tried it once as written and once with the balsalmic vinegar, they were both really good but I have a slight preference for the balsalmic, it just adds a really nice sweetness that's a little different than the sugar. Mine was a little watery both times but it may be because I doubled the recipe and with the 28 oz can of tomatoes, maybe therer was more juice? Anyway, my kids loved it so much they dipped their bread in at the end!

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Delicious and easy. First dredged chicken in flour seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder, but the flour was probably not necessary. Sauteed onions and garlic first, then chicken in olive oil 3 min. each side. Added everything else (reduced sugar to less than 1/4 cup and it was still really sweet), plus some baby carrots and mushrooms. Followed others' tip to add some cornstarch to thicken sauce at the end. YUMMY!!! Husband enjoyed it a lot and he is not a fan of chicken.

Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
This was a huge hit at Thanksgiving brunch!! I worried that I overestimated and made too much but there wasn't a single bite left. Didn't use bourbon, and subbed 1/3 cup of OJ for the orange. Instead of the marshmallows, I reserved about 2 T of the brown sugar and sprinkled it on top and broiled for 5 min. at the end. It looked nice that way until it sloshed around in the car on the way to family. But it still tasted great!

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
This was delicious - perfect over rice or pasta for the first day of fall weather. The pumpkin adds a great texture and a subtle flavor. I did add some cumin and coriander, along with the other spices BEFORE the tomatoes and pumpkin. I also decreased the chili to 1 T. for my 2 year old who INHALED this! Lastly, I subbed red bell peppers for green and added some celery and carrots. So I guess it was more like a stew, but it was sooooooooooo good!

Chicken and Shrimp

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
Very nice recipe; I also upped the garlic and wine and added lemon juice. Also, I sprinkled the chicken with lemon pepper and salt before dredging in flour. Served over brown rice, but I think it would've been much tastier with pasta or crusty bread. Also..."large skillet" was not large enough - I ended up transfering to a saucepan.

Chicken Stew With Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
This was very, very good. I made some changes that I'm not sure I would go with next time but the basic recipe is wonderful and deserves 5 stars! I didn't have potatoes so I subbed mashed potato flakes - I used about 1/3 cup which was too much so it was a little thicker than I'd like and the flavor was a little overpowering. The other thing I overdid was the hot sauce - next time I'll up the spices instead. I only had 2 chicken breasts, so I added a half pound of (defrosted) frozen cooked shrimp at the very end, which was yummy. Used a whole can each of light coconut milk, tomatoes and peas (instead of lima beans. Used a little more chicken broth to balance out my over-potatoes. Next time, I think I'll use corn instead of peas, increase the ratio of coconut milk to the other liquids. But overall, I was really pleased with how easy and tasty this was. Thank you!!

Killer Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
My husband and I are BIG fans of this restaurant. We no longer live in the area so I was thrilled to find this recipe! It was wonderful, but I made a few changes after reading previous reviews. I used 1/4 cup butter and think I still could've gone less. Added red pepper flakes and old bay seasoning. Didn't have fennel or celery seed, but added chopped celery. Fresh rosemary. I used medium shrimp but really missed the big ones that the restaurant served. Overall, a very good version. thanks for posting!

Grilled Sea Bass

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
Great recipe, easy, quick and delicious. Go easy on the salt, mine was a touch too salty (plus I had less fish than the recipe calls for). The paprika blackened very lightly, which was a nice touch. Grilled 3 minutes on the George Foreman (fish about 3/4" thick). Thanks!

Baked Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
I sauteed some onions and added half a bag of frozen spinach. I only used 4 chicken breasts, and 25 minutes at this temp. was not nearly enough. Nice flavor, though, and simple to make. Thanks!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
Doubled all sauce ingredients except lemon, and still thought the lemon was too strong. My husband, however, loved it. Nice change from cream and tomato based sauces - tasted very light. Also, used fusilli, added some sauted onion and red pepper. Adding to our rotation, thanks for a good recipe!

Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
I used tapioca flour instead of wheat flour (son's allergies), left out the garlic and increased the butter...so it wasn't exactly the same recipe, but it was so easy and my son who doesn't like spinach asked for seconds!!!

Moist Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2006
I've made this several times for chicken salad. The chicken comes out incredibly moist and flavorful, even if you cut back on the butter. I add a little more garlic than is called for. :) Thanks for a great recipe!

Chocolate Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
OH my gosh. So easy and so much prettier than when I've tried making them in the past. I also used canola oil instead of shortening, and it makes the chocolate much smoother and easier to handle. I also did a small batch with white chocolate chips, which burn faster. From Hershey's site - microwave them at 50% power for 1.5 minutes only and then stir (this is when I added the oil); microwave further if needed in SHORT increments. These were so beautiful and tasty!

Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
I used the Moist Garlic Chicken recipe (easy!) from this site, then threw it in the food processor instead of dicing. I loved the texture and lightness of this salad, but something was definitely missing flavor-wise. I really like the Holiday Chicken Salad from this site, I'll try to use some of the seasonings from that.

Marinade for Steak I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
I used 1/2 canola and 1/2 olive oil, and dry instead of dijon mustard, but I followed all the measurements exactly. We used New York strip steaks. Neither my husband or I particularly liked the taste of the marinade - I felt it was kind of sour. Maybe cut back on the vinegar or lemon? Our guests seemed to enjoy it, though (or else they're just polite)
