Grilled Chicken with Ginger and Black Bean Sauce

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I made this with a couple of chicken quarters, and pretty much quadrupled the ingredients (I wanted enough to marinate the chix plus have some left over to baste during baking). I marinated them for two hours, and baked in the oven at 350f for about 45 mins. Not bad at all. Thanks!

Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
Phenomenal. This is the kind of dish Husband orders when we eat out, and he said it was better than anything similar he's had at a restaurant :) I made it with fresh broccoli, and I upped the amount of pesto and garlic. I definitely agree that you should double the amount of sauce. With these changes, this is a five star recipe. Thanks so much, Robbie!

Tuna Salad Muffins

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
These weren't a hit unfortunately. They turned out very dry, dense and heavy with not a whole lot of flavor. Oh well. Thanks anyway!

Good Good Green Beans

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
I used olive oil, fresh bean sprouts, and I added Splenda until it was as sweet as I wanted. I refridgerated it for about six hours and served it slightly chilled. Not bad at all. Thanks, Marisa!

Ellen's Buffalo Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
I ended up making this with half ground buffalo and half ground beef (didn't pay attention when taking it out of the freezer). I added some fresh garlic, and, like others, diced up the canned tomatoes a little more finely. The only other change I made was to mix some prepared English mustard with the ketchup. Although it crumbled when I cut into it, this was a very tasty meatloaf. Nice and moist too. Thanks!

Mango Cashew Salad

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
I HAD to make this because the ingredients seemed so weird. Wow, what a surprise - this was really good! I made it with a slightly underripe mango and white balsamic vinegar. Next time, I'll cut back on the ginger and cinnamon. Thanks!

Indian Carrots, Peas and Potatoes

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
If you're a curry fan, you're probably going to find this bland. I upped the spices called for but also browned some cumin seeds in the hot oil before adding the onion. I also added some Madras curry powder for heat/flavor. I made this with leftover peas and baked potato from last night's dinner, and used steamed cauliflower instead of carrots (I LOVE curried cauli). I rolled it up in a paratha with a drizzle of garlic chutney. Nice lunch. Thanks!

Lemon Trout

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
The only changes I made were to cut back on the amounts of flour and lemon zest, and I added a good pinch of garlic powder. Though I overcooked the fish by a few minutes, it turned out phenomenally - nicely blackened, and bursting with flavor. Delicious! Thanks so much!

Garden Fresh Breakfast

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
I omitted the green bell pepper as we aren't huge fans, and added more tomatoes instead. Four eggs is definitely not enough to hold everything together, so I threw in another two which was perfect. This was filling and pretty healthy. Thanks, Donna!

Awesome Baked Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Pretty good but I think it needs a little more seasoning. I added some lemon juice and a splash of white wine. I was going to throw in a pinch of lemon pepper too but didn't (I will next time). Like other reviewers, I cut back on the breadcrumbs and also turned on the broiler for the last 3 or 4 minutes of cooking time. Served it with asparagus and boiled baby potatoes. Thanks!

Mom's Irish Ziti

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This turned out ok but it was kind of a waste of ground lamb (you couldn't taste that it was lamb at all. Next time, I'll stick with ground beef). The only changes I made were to stir the Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes into the meat mixture, and I also added a little ricotta cheese that needed using up. This was a quick and hearty meal on a chilly evening. Thanks!

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Quick, easy and customizable. Like other reviewers, I added a bit more seasoning - sesame oil, some onion powder, a dash of hoisin sauce. I also added sliced green onions, and sprinkled some toasted sesame seeds over the finished dish. Not bad at all. Thanks!

Salami and Kalamata Primavera Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I made this two days in a row, first as written (plus a little dash of olive oil to keep it moist), and today with a couple of changes. Today I used Feta instead of Provolone, and I also added some diced English cucumber. Delicious! Next time I make it (which will probably be tomorrow), I'll add some red onion. Thanks!

Cauliflower Side Dish

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I divided the cauliflower into small florets, and then simmered them til tender. I thought the finished dish was ok as written, but a generous sprinkle of freshly-grated Parmesan made a huge difference. I think I'll make it with Gruyere next. Thanks!

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
As written, I give this soup 4 stars. Sure, it would be wayyy better with homemade chicken broth and veggie broth, and I would probably replace the dried oregano with fresh, but as a quick and easy soup that calls for ingredients that are always in my cupboard, this is good. Like others, I made this with the shredded meat from a rotisserie chicken (I also threw in the skin for a little extra flavor, but removed it prior to serving). All in all, not bad. Thanks!

Tender Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
Not bad but needs a bit of tweaking. I added a pinch of Italian herb blend, a little salt, and also some garlic powder to the crumb mixture. I wish the coating had gone on a bit thicker, and also that the nuggets had crisped up more. A few of my chunks were a bit thick, so I baked the chicken for about 30 mins just to be on the safe side. These definitely need a dipping sauce of some kind - next time I'll whip up some honey mustard or something. Thanks!

Twice Fried Fish

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I made this as written, and thought the sauce was super sour and strong-tasting. I diluted it down a bit with low sodium chicken broth, but it was still really salty and overwhelming. I don't really understand the whole "twice fried" thing tbh. It didn't add anything to the fish at all. Anyway, this turned out ok but not amazing. There are better ways to cook cod imo. Thanks anyway!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Great flavor but needs more cheese. It was a little thick so next time I would cut back on the flour. The texture wasn't as smooth and creamy as I would have liked. I would definitely make this for company but will probably just stick with jarred Alfredo sauce for myself and Husband. Thanks!

Denver Omelet Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I made a few small changes. I pressed the thawed hash browns into a greased pan, and baked it for about 20 mins. I then poured the egg mixture on top, and returned the pan to the oven. I omitted the thyme and green pepper (we're not fans), and I used some grated Gruyere cheese as well as Swiss. If I were to make it again, I would use bacon instead of ham. Still, this was a very filling and delicious brunch dish. Thanks, Barbara!

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I made this with some really stinky English stilton (I love that stuff!). Apart from adding a little more broth, I pretty much made this as written. It was good but I still prefer Stilton and cauliflower soup. Thanks!
