Crispy Fried Fish

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Hands down the BEST homemade fried fish I have tried. My husband and I had to make a few key substitutions, since we were using what we had on hand. Unfortunately, we did NOT have beer, so we had to sub milk (can't wait to try again with beer though), and we used italian seasoned bread crumbs instead of crushed cornflakes. My husband also added some blackened Old Bay seasoning, which I think is the reason for the ka-POW! flavor. Additionally, we mixed the wet and dry ingredients separately, then dipped the fish in each, sprayed with butter spray, and dipped in the dry mixture again. You have to get the oil pretty hot and cook it just a little longer than you think to get a good crisp. AMAZING.

Mango Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
Soggy chicken, anyone? Not for me. I followed this recipe exactly and it produced a soggy chicken piece and even after using 4 mangos I could barely pick up the flavor over the soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. I had really high hopes for this recipe but it just did not deliver. AND it made a lot of dishes, to boot!

Not a fan. Pretty bland and now I have a lot of pork that no one wants to eat.

Slow-Cooker Lasagne

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
This lasagna turned out surprisingly well in the slow cooker. I only gave it four stars because I feel that, while it is a good base lasagna, it needs a little bit more pizazz. Next time I make it I might do one or more of the following: Substitute bulk italian sausage for the ground beef, add garlic and/or italian seasoning & fennel to the meat as it's cooking, add a vegetable such as spinach or zucchini to one of the layers, don't go cheap on the pasta sauce, and add more cheese on top. I cooked this lasagna for a little over 4 hours and it was starting to get a little bit charred on the bottom. 6 hours definitely would have been disastrous, though I suppose it depends on your slow cooker. Lastly, I substituted cottage cheese for the ricotta and no one noticed a difference and I used dried parsley since that was what I had on hand. I will definitely be making this recipe again; it was delicious to come home to the smell of lasagna!

Turkey in a Bag

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I made a 14 pound turkey using this recipe for a large group of people and I could not have been more pleased with the results. The only thing that I did differently was that I took a stick of butter and rubbed the turkey down both under and on top of the skin, then threw what was left into the turkey cavity. I then sprinkled the whole turkey with salt, pepper, and dried sage and put the onion & celery both in the cavity and around the turkey. Also, it only took TWO hours and fifteen minutes to cook, resulting in a perfectly moist and delicious turkey. If you are unsure of how long your turkey will need to cook, you can always look on the Reynolds (oven bags) website for their recommendations.

Andy's Spicy Green Chile Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
This was by far the EASIEST and TASTIEST slow cooker recipe I have ever found. It took me about 5 minutes to put this together but you would never know it from the flavor. I had to make a few adjustments. The grocery store didn't have a boneless pork shoulder roast so I went with a boneless pork rib roast and since it was only 2 pounds, I reduced the cooking time by about an hour. Also, I thought that serranos might be a bit too spicy, so I added a half a jalapeno with about a quarter of the seeds added. It came out a nice medium spice but when we ate it with cilantro and lime rice in warm tortillas with sour cream and cheese, it lowered the heat even more, so next time I might keep more seeds in. Also, I used Goya brand salsa verde. I spent probably $15 altogether for ingredients and this recipe served easily 6-7 people, so I will DEFINITELY be making this recipe again, thank you so much!
