Slow Cooker Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
I made this exactly as written and it was great! Served it on warm taco-size Flour Tortillas, and let everyone select their own toppings of chopped onion, cilantro, lettuce, avocados, cheese, hot sauce, sour cream and lime sections to squeeze onto the meat. It was a hit! I also made the "Best Spanish Rice" recipe from this site, and Refried beans. It fed 5 adults until we were stuffed, and 1 active 2-year old, and there are still leftovers!

Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2014
Reviewer Caroline is absolutely correct, the "Baking Soda" in this Recipe should be "Baking Powder!" That is why so many reviewers mention that the bread didn't rise. I used Baking Powder, added 1 tsp vanilla and a few shakes of cinnamon and it came out great. HOWEVER, I screwed up and realized after it was in the oven that I only added TWO EGGS, not FOUR! Silly Me. It still came out great! And for me it only filled 1 cake pan, so I just have 1 big loaf of goodness. :-)

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
This is a great recipe. I went light on the Ginger but that is a personal preference. It went great with the Indonesian Satay Recipe from this site. BTW I didn't bother cleaning out the seeds, I just peeled all but 3 narrow strips of skin from the cucumber, sliced it thin, and it was excellent AND pretty!

Ginger Pork Stir Fry (with Mushroom)

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2014
I liked it! But I made a few changes, based on Reviews. I doubled the sauce and instead of Brown Sugar I used Oyster Sauce; instead of Rice Wine I used Chicken Stock; and instead of a carrot I used some fresh baby corns which I found at Whole Foods and just HAD to try them in a stir fry. Also I used Shittake Mushrooms instead of White. I served this with Ramen Noodles which I cooked and drained and then mixed in with the stir fry. Oh, I added a pinch of Red Pepper Flakes and served this with crushed Peanuts which cut down the saltiness of the Soy. It was Excellent!

Sweet Basil and Oregano Bruschetta Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
I really really love this recipe but the folks are correct, the chicken comes out dry if you follow the directions. I took the tomatoes and 1" chicken strips out of the (425 degree) oven at 20 minutes, and the chicken was already dry. 30 minutes would have been really bad. My suggestion is to go 15 minutes and take it all out of the oven. In any case the recipe is simple and the flavors are great.

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: May 20, 2014
I made this EXACTLY as written, and they were very very good! At first I wanted to skip the Tomato Soup, but my son said he'd prefer it to too much Enchilada Sauce, then I remembered my hubby LOVES tomato soup, so I figured I'd try it. It was great! See my pictures, I fit 6 burritos perfectly into my larger 9.5" x 15" glass baking dish. I opted to bake it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350, and I let each person add their own lettuce and tomatoes when the dish came out of the oven. Everyone loved it!

Smoky Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
This is a great way to make flavorful pork chops! I made it exactly as written, except I didn't rinse the chops first, lately "they" are saying that rinsing meat just spreads bacteria in your sink/counters, and anything on the outside of the meat is easily burned off. We grilled asparagus and french bread to serve with it. Nice dinner!

Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage, Endive, & Blueberry Salad with Toasted Pecans

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
This was great! I'm glad I read the Reviews or else I may not have given the dressing a try, and I'm glad I did because it was surprisingly good! And like another Reviewer said, the best bite was one where you get all the ingredients together in one bite. It is also very flexible; I only had Romaine lettuce, Strawberries (no blueberries), and Walnuts (no Pecans), so I subbed those. Other than that I made it exactly as written. Oh, I had another brand of gourmet Chicken Sausage on hand so I used that. This is SO GOOD, and Good For You!!

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
I used Red Potatoes, Sweet Onions, Olive Oil instead of Butter, and you can use any kind of spices you like. I used Salt, Pepper, Celery Salt, and Herbs de France. 30 minutes was great on the grill. Yum!

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
Awesome!! I only used 1/4 cup Butter and 1 cup + 1 splash of Heavy Cream. I had plenty of frozen pesto that I had saved from making a big batch last summer, so I added about 1/2 cup of Pesto. I didn't measure the Parmesan but it was probably only 1/2 cup, not a full cup. Other than the measurements (of high fat ingredients) being lower and Pesto being higher, I made it exactly as written and everyone LOVED IT. Definitely a keeper!

Ray's Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2014
It was great! I forgot the Sherry; I was going to substitute wine when I opened a bottle that evening, but got the chicken marinating in an airtight storage bag in the fridge before I thought of it again. I marinated it for 24 hours and it had a very nice flavor. I'll use it again, Thanks!

Mashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
This was great! My hubby and son do not like Cauliflower, but they ate a good side dish of this and said, for cauliflower, it was the best they way they've ever had it. I steamed it for 10 minutes, and used a little garlic powder in the Food Processor where I let it mix for about 1 minute. Otherwise made it exactly as written. I personally loved it.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2014
This was great! I chopped up small white potatoes into small cubes and added them at the same time as the Northern Beans. Also I substituted celery for the zucchini. I had frozen spinach and used that. It made a big batch, I'll put some in the freezer and pull it out when I don't feel like cooking in a few weeks. :-)

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
For some reason I never buy Curry but I have TWO bottles of Garam Marsala, and I use that in its place, and it is always good. Great meal, everyone enjoyed it!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
I really liked this! I didn't use mushrooms, so I was able to saute the onion, celery, and garlic in the same large skillet that I added the flour to to make the roux. So that part was all done in one skillet. Also I used crushed potato chips on top instead of the breading. Its a keeper!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
Very good, and I made extra "sauce" because I wanted to be sure there was some to add to the Egg Noodles. Made Broccoli to go with this too. I added some bacon bits, and Panko Bread Crumbs to the top. Used Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder because I didn't have Garlic Pepper, but I next time I'll skip the Salt.
