Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2013
I'm not an olive, caper, or anchovy lover, but I love this sauce. I also love how quick and easy it is to make. BUT I like it made my way. I also cut up a half an onion and fry that up, then mince twice the garlic called for and fry that up. I give a rough chop to the anchovies and olives (kalamata, black, and green) and throw everything in the blender and blend until it is fairly smooth, only slightly chunky. You can only see real small pieces of olive. I also cut the olive oil to 1/3 c. and serve it with fettuccini. The sauce does get thicker in the fridge and then I'll thin it with more olive oil. This is a very flavorful sauce that I'm sure will get many raves!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
This recipe is scrumptious! I found I needed a lot more seasoning though...2-3 times more. Such a plus that it's such a low fat recipe to boot!

Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I usually don't care too much for brussel sprouts but these were so ncredibly good!! I was in shock and awe and I wanted to lick the pan! What an awesome flavor! I did double the garlic, butter, oil, and broth and was glad I did. What an excellent dish!

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
This was really good. I agree with other reviewers that it tastes even better later. I too, only used 16 oz sausage. I didn't have spicy sausage and only used 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and I thought it was still plenty hot. I might even use less cayenne next time. I loved it with a can of black beans, drained & rinsed, shredded carrot, finely diced celery, and used a 15 oz can of diced, undrained tomatoes, along with 1/2 tsp cumin and fresh cilantro. I also used 2 cups of chicken broth and fire roasted red peppers instead of green and red bell peppers. I only added 1/4 tsp of salt as there was enough salt in some of the other ingredients. I tried to make it on the stove top but I couldn't get all the rice to soften even though I stirred it often. I ended up adding 1/2 cup more of broth and baking it for a half hour. I think next time I would make the rice separate if I was trying to make it quicker. Definitely worth a try and very tasty.

Baked Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I made a double batch for church. I only cubed 7 bricks of sharp cheddar (didn't shred any...worked out good, but shredding would probably be better) and added 4 oz of very potent blue cheese and 4 oz of pepperjack cheese. The blue and pj cheese was a great addition but probably could have cut back on a brick of cheddar....and I love cheddar....just thought it was a little much. Followed the rest of the recipe. Eveyone loved it and got requests for the recipe.

Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
I've always called these Eggs in a Hole. One thing I love to do while they're cooking is to heat up some chorizo. When the Eggs in a Hole are done, top one of them with cheese and chorizo and put the other on top for an incredible flavored and filling breakfast. Mmm, I could go for a sandwich right now!

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
I'm so glad this shrimp is baked so I can eat more without feeling too guilty. It tastes so good with cooked shrimp but it's much more incredible with raw shrimp. And if you want to taste the best thing you ever put in your mouth then try it with rum sauce from this site by KDA949. It's so scrumptious, you'll wish you tried it sooner!! (Just a note that I used half the cayenne called for with the shrimp and it was the perfect heat without being too hot.)

Rum Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
This rum sauce is so delicious; I could almost drink it! I make it with Coconut Rum. Use it to dip Baked Coconut Shrimp in (from this site by girlbob) and you won't ever order it at a restaurant again because you'll know yours is much better and healthier. The taste of this combination is one of the best things you'll ever put in your mouth! mmmm! Oh, and just an added note....it's very good with cooked shrimp but much more incredible using raw shrimp. This is an absolute must try recipe! You'll wish you tried it sooner!

Creamy Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I used butternut squash and followed the recipe to a T. I really enjoyed this soup, however, I did not like the curry in it. Left me with an unpleasant aftertaste. And even though I am a bacon lover, I didn't think bacon really made much of an improvement. I'd make it again but without the curry or bacon.
