Curry-Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
I followed aglika's modifications, but needed to add more sugar, salt and pepper, a pinch of coriander, a few shakes of garam masala, more cumin, and -most importantly- a few squirts of lime to finish it off just right.

Shrimp Francesca

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
This was AWESOME. I modified it a bit after reading other reviews. I used half olive oil half butter, tossed in a few capers, added 2T white wine to the butter, half of the bread crumbs called for, 2 t garlic, medium shrimp. 375 for 8 minutes, under the broiler 'til browned. Served it over angel hair pasta. My guests were raving. You have to try this!! (in the future I'll use Smart Balance instead of the butter- just had to be bad this once)

Crab Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
I cut the recipe down to 1 serving and it was still enough for 2 large sandwiches. I omitted the sugar, parsely, and pepper, and used fake crab. Yummy!

Pork Chops a la Slow Cooker

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
This was my 1st time with a Crock Pot so I used this recipe and it's reviews as a guide and made changes to suit my taste. First off I brought the recipe down to 2 servings. Then, I sauteed a box of sliced mushrooms, set aside. Carmelized 1/2 a chopped onion and 2 cloves of garlic. Browned the pork chops with a dusting of flour in olive oil. In a bowl I mixed 1 can of cream of mushroom soup with 1/4 c. sherry (NOT the cooking kind), the mushrooms and the onion/garlic, 3/4 tsp. paprika, and 1/4 tsp. thyme, couple twists of fresh pepper. Cooked on low for 5 hours, served over brown rice with steamed broccoli slaw. Fall off the bone yummy.

Lattice Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Good basic recipe, it's pretty bland on it's own. I used cream of chicken soup, added a dollup of sour cream and a splash of white wine, plus a diced small red potato, 1/3 c. carmelized chopped onion w/ 2 t. chopped garlic, 1/3 c. celery, 1/2 t. pepper, 1/4 t. poultry seasoning and 1/4 t. celery seed. I also used half the cheese, no french fried onions, stirred it all up and then added milk until it seemed like a good consistancy. YUM!! (I know some of you feel it wrong to alter recipes but I've made my finest meals by reading reviews and tweaks)

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Although I usually add a dollup of sour cream we were out so I tried the mayo. It was nice! I need something to take away that slightly sickening (to me) aftertaste eggs have, and the mayo was perfect.

Company Couscous

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
We loved this. I modified a bit by using 1 1/4 c. chicken stock instead if 1 c. water, used 5 scallions, c. grape tomatoes halved, more garlic, half a red pepper and more than a dash of balsamic vinegar. The fresh basil is key and I shredded it. Don't skip the oven though you may be tempted..melds the flavers. YUM We served it with potato crusted tilapia (Publix recipe- very good)

Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
This is my go to chili recipe. * I use half of the sugar- way too sweet as is. I like to tweak it with more cumin and chili powder. Delish!!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This was fabulous~ with modifications. I always read other's reviews. DON'T add salt!! The ham hocks are essential for authentic bean soup. I used 4 cans of navy beans, 4 cups of chicken stock and 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth. 2 ham hocks, no other added meat. 3/4 cup carrot, 1/2 cup celery and an entire onion, carmelized. 2 t. garlic. Bought to a boil and simmered for an hour, removed hocks, cooled and seperated the meat out and added it back to the soup, simmered another 1/2 hour. Skimmed off the fat, mushed some beans against the side of the pot to add body to the soup. Near the end I added a couple dashes of hot chili sauce. Not enough to add heat, just round out the flavor. It was so good we ate it for 2 days. YUM!!!

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Very nice! I read reviews and added an extra can of chicken broth. Used great northern beans, a chopped chicken breast, several squeezes of lemon and a dash of red pepper flakes. Loved the couscous. A nice, hearty soup. Oh- also mashed some of the beans against the side of the pot :)

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I always read reviews before trying new recipes. I know some folks think it unfair to alter recipes, but heck, I know what I like and ingredients are expensive. I omitted salt from the marinade and added only 1/2 t to the sauce. My fav. Indian restaurant adds red pepper and onion so I did too. I also doubled the sauce, and used 1 c whipping cream/ 1 c half & half. I cut back on the cumin and paprika and added Garam Masala, and used 1/2 jalapeno and added cayenne to taste after the chicken had simmered in the sauce. It's really very yummy. Very rich. I think next time I'll use half whipping cream/ half fat free yogurt.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
I made a few changes after reading some reviews: I swapped a T of fresh thyme for the oregano, used only 1 t parsely, simmered down a large can of chicken broth (instead of using boullion and water) I used refrigerated Pillsbury pie crust- Fabulous- and made 2 pies with just a top crust. I also used only one potato but added a container of sliced sauteed mushrooms and some thawed frozen peas. And I used rotisserie chicken instead of turkey. The results were fantastic. My family gobbled it up. I froze the other one and popped it in the oven straight from the freezer on 300 till bubbly. This recipe is a keeper. Next time I will omit the potato all together.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
It was FABU. My friends went crazy over it. I did take another reviewer's advice and substitute canned diced tomato for the sauce and sauce for the juice though. I also used a can of black beans instead of one can of the kidney's and 1lb of ground tukey, 1lb ground sirloin and a tube of Jimmy Deans' hot sausage. I also used 3 large cloves of garlic, upped the cayenne, omitted the jalepeno, added 1/2 cup coffee and 1/2 cube baker's chocolate. It's my new favorite chili.

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
This recipe is a keeper for sure! I tweaked it. Used only 1 tsp chicken bouillon and substituted chicken broth for the water (next time will just use just the broth/no bouillon) I also doubled the flour and both the paprika and garlic powder, used 2 tsp olive oil instead of butter, doubled the lemon juice (we LOVE lemon)and tossed in a few capers. Next time I'll add some mushrooms. It was awesome over brown rice with mixed veggies.
