Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
Soooooo yummie. I used more garlic to make it spicier and both ways are awsome. I also used less mayo and thinned it out with some olive oil so it coats the salad better. Everyone who tries this asks for more...it's perfect :) Try it over pizza crust with shaved parmesean cheese on top for a pretty adn delicious appitizer!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2006
TERRIBLE!!! Once I put the choc chips in, it turned into a crumbly mess that looked and almost tasted like dirt. I called my mom (the candy expert) becuase I had made fudge with her so many times, and after going over the recipe, she told me that it was becuase you arn't supposed to heat marshmellow cream. It carmelizes the sugar too quickly. So I used her recipe the second time and it turned out perfectly. I seriously can't believe that this recipe has such rave reviews with such a horrible mistake written into it like that!

Tex-Mex Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
This turned out to be very good, but I made a LOT of changes. First I sauteed onions (1/2 cup) and 2 cloves garlic in butter. Then I added all the spices and 3 large diced potatoes along with garlic salt and chicken broth. When tender, I added the corn, more spices, milk (1 1/2 cups) and cream cheese. The cream cheese was too overpowering, so I let it sit at the lowest temp for 1 hour and it was perfect!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
I've made this twice now, and both times it was wonderful! This time I made it without the cayenne becuase I was cooking at someone else's house. I also added about a 1/2 cup white wine and 1/2 cup chicken stock to the drippings and made a sauce. I serve the chicken and sauce over pasta. Very yummie! My boyfriend, who hates thyme, loved this dish.

Cafeteria Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2006
THANK YOU!!! I have been looking for a great macaroni and cheese recipe for ever, and everything I tried came out gritty or just not right. I tried this one because it had no flour, which I thought was the problem with the others. This is the first one I have tried that actualy tastes good. I used 2 cups 2% milk mild cheddar cheese, 2 slices 2% milk american cheese and non-fat milk becuase it's summer and it would be too heavy otherwise. I didn't bake it, and my chese and milk never mixed together. I'll try baking it next time to solve that problem. Awsome mac and cheese!!! ***Update: I have been making this for a few years now, and I love it with any kind of cheese. My favorite is a mix of white cheddar, mozerella, fresh parmesean, and havarti. I usually use about 1 1/2 times as much cheese as it calls for, which makes it extra creamy. Thanks again!

Shrimp Pad Thai

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
As recommended by other reviews, I doubled the sauce. However, it still was not enough! My noodle turned out soggy too...I definatly recommend using the package directions (2-3 mins) instead of the direction here (30 mins). Next time I will cook the eggs first and set aside becuase they soaked up all the sauce, and I will quadruple the sauce and cut the noodles in half.

Jalapeno Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
This was surprisingly good. It smelled very questionable while cooking, and I almost threw out the sauce to start over with a different recipe, because it smelled so wierd, but I'm glad I didn't. They flavors were very unusual, but I'll probably make this again. I substituted lemmon juice and jarred jalapenos becuase that was all I had...next time, I'll use lime and a fresh jalapeno. P.S. I used about a 1/3 cup jalapenos, all the sauce, and only two chicken thighs, so I agree that the sauce needs to be doubled and to use more jalapenos.

Lobster Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
This was amazing! We bought lobster tails for V-Day that were just too big to eat, and I had no idea what to do with the leftovers, since I have bad luck reheating lobster. So I tried this recipe since it stays cold. I'm so glad I did! I did make a few changes: I had about a 1/2 Lb. of lobster, I used all the mayo (light), I used 1 Tab lemmon, not lime, I substituted a dash of celery salt becuase I don't like celery, I added about 4 dashes more hot pepper sause, and I put it in a tortilla with lettuce (and no butter)as a wrap. I can't see myself spending $20 a pound just for this, but if I ever have leftover lobster again, this is the perfect way to eat it! And if you have a fancy party, this would make an unbelievable appitizer.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
I was surprised that the lemon wasn't very strong. It just added a nice little kick. I used 2 cloves of garlic and turned the potatoes over half way trough cooking. It also took about an hour to cook through. My boyfriend was getting hungry so I turned the oven up 50 degrees higher for the last 10 mins. They were very good, and were a perfect side dish to roasted chicken.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
This was great! I loved the flavor of the spices. I thought it was wierd to have no liquid in the recipe so I added about 1/2 cup of white wine to the baking dish and baste the chicken about ever 45 mins. It was very tender and tasty :)

Garlic Sauteed Artichokes

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
This was very bitter. I love artichokes, and this was the first time I didn't want to eat them. I think the garlic was cooked too long. I might try this recipe with a different cooking method to keep the garlic from going bitter again.

Chicken Fricassee

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2006
We LOVED this dish. We have had it twice in the past few weeks, and it is still wonderful. I did change a few things: 1) I didn't use any oil and just mixed the flour with some water as I thought the chicken thighs and sausage had enough fat already 2)I didn't have cajun seasoning, so I used creole seasoning 3) I added more cayenne because it really wasn't very spicey for our tastes 4) After frying the meat, I threw everything into a crock pot on low for 3 to 4 hrs or high for 1 to 2 hrs 5) I always substitute celery salt for celery. With my minor changes, it was excellent and has gone into our regular rotation of meals :)

Sweet Honey French Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2005
This was great bread! My only complaint was that it wasn't very sweet, even my boyfriend said it was bette than my normal bread recipe but not at all what he expected from "Sweet" bread. So it is now my regular bread recipe and I am still looking for something sweet, maybe adding more honey or sugar would help...

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2005
This was great, but I gave it a 4 because I made a few changes. I mixed together the mozzarella and (no fat) sour cream with some garlic salt, about 1/2 t. Then I mixed in the pasta. I put the cheese and pasta mix on the bottom of the greased dish, then layered with provolone followed with no meat marinara sauce. It was great and every bite had all the flavors mixed in. Thanks for the recipie!

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
This is a great basic recipe for suchi. You can add anything to it that you want. As for the reviwers saying they didn't need to bake to nori: if you just bought it, then it will be strong enough, but if you opened the package and saved some nori for later, even if you sealed it in a bag, you might need to bake it because it gets soft and falls apart. Thanks for the recipe! I have been making this sushi for almost a year now and my boyfreind still requests it...that's when you know its a keeper :)

Easy Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
I make similar guacamole, but with 3 avacados, about 1 tsp. garlic salt instead of a clove, and I add less than a 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro. Sometimes I add a dollup of no fat sour cream if the avacados arn't ripe enough. This is low fat and yummie :)

Crab Stuffed Lobster Rayna

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2005
The only reason this gets a 3 is because I change a few things so a 1/2 wouldn't be fair. First, the cayanne was overpowering, and we couldn't taste the crab! I dont like celery, so I used celery salt instead..always a good substitute. Then, the lobster cooked unevenly and the stuffing was burned on top and still cold on bottom. I don't have a grill, so I baked it at 425 F for 20 mins (this cooking method was from another recipe). When we spraped the stuffing off and dipped the lobster in lemon garlic butter, it was great! But that was plain lobster, w/o the wierd stuffing. I would recomend using fewer spices if you want to be able to taste the crab, and if you're a spicy whimp like me. The worst part.....the lobster tails took me 1/2 hr to cut opn two!!! sooooo much hard work.

Fresh Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2005
My boyfriend doesnt like spinach and he doesnt like salad...so when he ate two plates of this, I was shocked!! I wanted a light salad for Valentine's Day, so i just put water chestnuts and walnuts on top of spinach with this dressing. He said it was the best dressing ever, and he was only eating salad cuz the dressing was sooo good. A note, I tried using less dishes and not lugging out the food processor...doesn't work!! You MUST put it in the food processor, or else it looks realy disgusting and lumpy. Great recipe!!!!
