Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
Made this last night almost exactly to spec, with only minor changes: I used canned, diced tomatoes since I was short on time, and had to use dry basil since I forgot fresh basil at the store (it was fine). Once it cooked, I cut up the chicken into bite sizes, and served it onto a salad made with romaine lettuce leaves, a raspberry vinaigrette, cucumbers, more olives, and feta cheese. I definitely want to include artichoke hearts with the chicken next time, but it was still delicious.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
I've made this recipe a few times now with some additions, and it comes out great every time. First, in addition to everything above, I sub out the water for beef broth (no brainer). I also like to chop up a few carrots and stalks of celery, which go right into the pot to cook the whole time. This adds some extra flavor to the broth, and they're super tender when it comes time to eat. I strain the juices into a pot at the end to get out some of the fat, and add some flour to them before boiling on the stove for a bit. After a touch of salt and pepper to taste, it makes a nice, thick gravy that we all enjoy. From there, I always whip up some mashed potatoes and serve with a loaf of bread. This recipe always goes over well with my house.

Pork Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Fantastic recipe! I upped the dosage and cooked a big batch for our house, and substituted in a somewhat fruity Paisano wine since I didn't have any Marsala. Came out delicious, but the portions can be a little small, so we added some asparagus and a raspberry vinaigrette salad onto the side, plus a loaf of bread, and it really came out fantastic. Definitely looking forward to making this one again, everyone cleaned their plates in seconds!

Cuban Midnight Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2012
Made it at home for my roommates, and it was great. Added in a few changes though: I mixed in some spanish paprika and ground annatto seeds with the mustard, which gave it a bit stronger taste - I also used spicy mustard for some extra kick. For the meats, I stuck with the turkey and used virginia ham, but I made up some pulled pork the day before and mixed the mustard into that. It may not be a "true" Cuban sandwich, but it still came out delicious...isn't that all that matters?

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
Very yummy sauce, and easy to make too! I added some herbs from a cantanzaro herb mix that I have instead of just the basil/oregano (the mix included both, yay) but otherwise I kept it exactly the same. It was fantastic alone, but combined with the Meatball Nirvana recipe from this site, it was amazing (all of us could barely move we ate so much)! For reference, here is the link for the meatball recipe, try it out: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/meatball-nirvana/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=nirvana&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Home%20Page

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
I changed/added a few spices here and there to taste, but largely kept the recipe the same...holy , they were delicious! I combined them with the Tomato Cream Sauce from this site located here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/tomato-cream-sauce-for-pasta/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=sauce&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Recipe%20Search%20Results It came out fantastic with that pairing over some linguine. A house of 5 people found themselves unable to move, they had eaten so much.

Fruit Salad in Seconds

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Made this a few times now; when I make it to the recipe (when I'm in a hurry) it's always a hit, but changing things up is popular too! Try it with any or all of the following: Kiwi, peaches, apples, watermelon, pineapple, blueberries, mangos, pears, and plums. Really, any fruit would probably go great in this recipe, no matter what I try, everyone has to fight to get a serving before it's all gone!

Chicken Pot Pie IV

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
Changed up the recipe a little when I made it tonight. Added some chopped celery to add flavor (wish I'd added peas too...next time I guess), and seasoned the chicken with some Peruvian Chile Lime powder from this place (which is local shopping for me): http://www.savoryspiceshop.com/blends/peruvian.html - I seasoned the chicken before throwing it in the skillet to cook, so it absorbed the flavor a bit more. Seasoning a couple hours before would've made the flavor even stronger, so I'll do that next time. Next, I added a little bit more salt, and some fresh ground pepper (about a 1/2 teaspoon per pie) and just a little bit of corn starch to thicken up the sauce a little bit. The pie cooked perfectly at the time/temp in the recipe, so no complaints there! Overall, I want to make a couple adjustments next time, but it's the tastiest pot pie I've made at home, whereas most of mine are bland. Next time I'm planning on a bit less pepper and chile lime powder, some peas, and whatever else comes to mind (I want to try to find something to use instead of the condensed soup, so it's healthier). That said, I'll be making this one again

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
Delicious recipe, with some adjustments made. First, we cooked more linguine per serving since we were starving, and added a few cloves of fresh minced garlic to the mix. Used less green/red bell pepper, but added in some sun-dried tomatoes and green olives into the mix, along with extra seasoning and salt. Baby Bella mushrooms were perfect for the recipe, especially when they got mixed with the other ingredients we added. Definitely want to make this one again, but I may add some artichoke hearts to the mix just to see how they fare. My biggest suggestion though? Make more than you know you could possibly eat. The leftovers were 10x better the next day...one friend ate them for lunch and dinner 2 days in a row!

Japanese Wafu Burger

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
I made this last weekend, alongside some asparagus and butter-sauteed radishes as sides. I had a couple patties that didn't want to stay together, but the recipe came out fantastic. I would definitely make this again. Next time I want to include some things like bean sprouts, and other veggies to spice things up.

Creole Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Made this for dinner tonight; as with one reviewer, I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs to save time. I panicked when an entire 28oz. can of diced tomatoes got poured in (my helper didn't hear me say to use about half), but the taste was fantastic! We all love tomatoes in food, so the added taste was great and not overpowering. I also added some dry Peruvian chile lime seasoning, and substituted a "chef salt" mixture that my mother makes, but won't tell me the recipe for. Doubled the green onions since we love the bite from those, added in celery (about 4 stalks worth, chopped), and used hot italian sausage instead of Polish sausage. Definitely was a hit, I'm already getting demands to make it again soon, so I'd say this one gets saved as a favorite!
