Central American Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
The meat needs some seasoning (garlic, cumin, Chipotle powder etc) but the avocado sauce is absolutely phenomenal! (and it's even better with a generous splash of lime juice.) This is definitely going to be a favorite at my house. Thanks!

Breakfast Sausage Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
I like to make this with frozen bread rolls so that I can customize the filling a little more (I use regular pork sausage but add red pepper flakes and/or diced jalepenos to Husband's). I also use Italian herb blend seasoning. They taste good, are great for any on-the-go breakfast/snack, and they keep very well. Thanks, Shirley!

Lamb Stew with Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
Absolutely the best lamb stew I've ever made! I omitted the celery and parsley as we don't like them, and I used fresh herbs instead of dried. I was skeptical about adding the cinnamon but I'm glad I did - it gave the stew a distinctly Middle Eastern aroma and flavor, which I love. It was a little bit watery when I added my fresh green beans but that was no biggie - I just left off the lid for the last 20 mins of cook time. Perfect! Fantastic recipe, Kathy! Thanks so much!

Grilled Chicken with Salsa Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I had to tweak the sweet/sour ingredients a little bit til they were how I wanted them. I baked the chicken legs in the oven at 350f for about 40mins (they were pretty big, thick and meaty), basting every so often with the salsa sauce. Since I used a combination of salsa and picante sauce, they were too spicy for me, but Husband loved them. Served with a cucumber/corn salad, and sweet potato fries. Not bad at all. Thanks, Beverley!

Grilled Tostadas with Roasted Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I made it with leftover grilled chicken. Apart from adding some Chipotle powder to the mix, I made it pretty much as written. Really good (though next time I'll sprinkle a little fresh cilantro on top). Thanks!

Cucumber-Avocado Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
Definitely make, cover and refridgerate for an hour or so so that the flavors really develop and meld. Also, if you use English cucumbers, you won't have to de-seed them. This makes a terrific salad dressing but I also LOVED it in a turkey/Swiss/alfalfa sprout sandwich - so good! Great recipe. Thanks!

Trout Amandine

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
This was pretty good. I made it with trout filets as that's what was in the freezer. Be careful when browning the almonds - mine went from "perfect" to "overdone" in a matter of seconds. Other than that, this is a nice easy way of cooking trout. Thanks!

Steve's Spicy Shrimp Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Outstanding! I made this with whole jalapenos, and stuffed them with a little cream cheese as well as the marinated shrimp. I also used half a slice of bacon per pepper, which was plenty. They they were a bit fiddly to make, the end result was definitely worth it. Amazing! Thanks so much!

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I followed other reviewers' suggestion and cut way back on the cream cheese. I also upped the amount of extra-sharp Cheddar by about another cup. Although we both really enjoyed the actual mac and cheese, we weren't too thrilled by the breadcrumb topping - was kind of "sandy" and not very pleasant. Next time I make this, I'll try using panko crumbs for more of a crunch. Not bad at all though. Thanks!

Mediterranean Fish Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
Despite the hot weather, for some reason I was craving a hearty soup for lunch today. I left out the green bell pepper (don't like it cooked) and the olives (didn't have any), and I used a fresh fennel bulb instead of seeds, and fresh mushrooms instead of canned. Because I was in a bit of a hurry, I cooked the soup in a pan on the stove top. Dang, this was SO good! Don't forget some crusty bread to mop up the brothy goodness. Delicious! Thanks so much!

Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
Wow, this turned out way better than I expected. I didn't have any stuffing mix so I made breadcrumbs, and added some Italian herb blend to it. I also made the dish with the juice from fresh oranges, and marinated the chicken in about a cup of oj for a couple of hours. After 35 minutes in the oven, the chicken was so moist and flavorful. Thanks, Betty!

Garbage Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Pretty good. I make a few changes (of course)- I use a combination of Gruyere and Swiss cheeses, regular onion instead of green, and I break up the broccoli into really small florets (larger pieces don't cook properly which is kinda icky). I also just mix the veggies in with the eggs, cheese, cream and seasonings, and pour everything into the pie crust. This is one of my favorite quiches. Thanks!

Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Apart from omitting the celery (I was making it for Husband, and he doesn't like cooked celery), I made this as written, and really wasn't impressed with the flavor. I ended up adding in some sauteed onions and jalapenos, a handful of chopped fresh cilantro, and a few Tbsps of tomato paste mixed with chicken broth. It was ok - a little too salty - but nothing to really go crazy about. This was pretty healthy but not something I'd make again. Thanks ahyway!

Spanish Pork with White Wine

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
I sliced my pork tenderloin into medallions, and marinated it in minced fresh garlic and a little olive oil for about 6 hours. It turned out super tender, and the flavor was pretty good, but if I were to make it again I would add some fresh oregano and/or thyme. Served it with asparagus and baby red potatoes. Good stuff. Thanks, Pietra!

Tacos De Matamoros

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
With a few adjustments to the seasonings, this turned out great. I browned the meat a little before adding the water. I debated whether or not to add a can of tomato sauce to the mix. I didn't, but probably will next time. Nice recipe. Thanks!

Creamy Ranch Pork Chops and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
For what this is - pork chops browned in oil, with a few canned and packet whatnots thrown in - this is a decent meal. I had zero time to cook tonight but also needed to use up some pork chops that had prematurely thawed in my broken freezer. This was ok.

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I heated the potatoes in the oil with the herbs for about 10 minutes before adding the garlic, and cooking for another 2 or 3. I left out the nutmeg as I'm not much of a fan, plus I thought there were already enough flavors going on. I made it with my favorite white balsamic vinegar, and served the dish with a tiny sprinkle of garlic salt. Thanks for an awesome recipe, Bev!

Sweet-and-Sour Skewered Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
I omitted the mushrooms and peppers as I was going to cook the skewers on the Foreman grill. The only thing I did differently was to use a pineapple/apricot preserve. Marinated the shrimp for about 6 hours, and they turned out perfectly - toms of flavor. Thanks, Rena!

Sole Steamed with Tomato-Leek Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
Not bad. The leeks were a little bit strange with the other flavors, and the fish didn't look very appetizing either. This isn't something I'll be making again, but thanks anyway!

Ginger Beef

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out. All in all, it was just ok, I guess. I recommend omitting the salt - the soup provides more than enough. I ended up adding a little V8 juice because it got a bit dry. I didn't have time to make rice so I just served it with some steamed broccoli and cauli. I won't be making it again, but thanks anyway!
