Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
S**T on a Shingle. Dad hates it as he had it every day in the service. Mom made it for us. Originally it was canned or bagged chipped meat/beef, milk gravy and toasted white bread. No curry or cayenne at all. Only salt and black pepper. And BTW, milk gravy IS made with a roux, which is just a fancy French way of telling you to cook off the butter/flour mixture to get full flavor before adding the milk. Oh and FORGET THE MERLOT! Try a cold dark beer, that will stand up to the salt in the meat. Also really good over egg noodles.

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This is a really good recipe. I like it with Napa cabbage too, if you can't get good bok choy. I did cut the soy sauce in half though, as I try to make things less salty, and it was still very good and easy. I know it's vegetarian, but I use this similar recipe poured over homemade cashew chicken and it's amazing.

Fish in Foil

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Very good, IF you use steelhead fillets, not whole trout. Whole trout is so delicate, that soaking it in garlic salt and lemon counters the sweetness of the fish too much. Plus, good trout needs to be roasted not steamed in foil!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Nothing special here. No cinnamon, or allspice or nutmeg? Also, it should be 6 cups of apples,as the number of apples is relative to size. A pinch of salt brings out the sweetness of too sour apples, or lemon juice can tart up too sweet apples. Also, you might want to think about tenting this pie. With the sugar butter concoction poured all over the crust, it will surely burn before it's done. Sorry.

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
This dish begs for salt and pepper and lemon. Fresh tomatoes are also a must along with some fresh herbs. Next time I would bread and fry the fish fillets until crispy and spoon the sauce on top. And don't forget the cheese, (as shown in the one picture, but not mentioned in the recipe.) To be honest, cod or haddock is much better under the broiler or in a beer battered fish fry. Sorry.

Kielbasa with Brussels Sprouts in Mustard Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I tried this as written and it's ok. It would be better with brats and bacon. The beans are a nice touch with the mustard sauce. And we all know beans and bacon are a winning combo. After being in Germany (Duetchland), I probably won't make this again. Something off about it.

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
This is delicious. This so good and so simple. It just proves that a classically good dish isn't necessarily the most complex. I served this with a Greek style salad, and hot chick peas with roasted red bell peppers. Thank you for this one. It's a keeper!

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I did this as written and it was ok. I think I like it better with a little thicker batter. I also add a 1/2 tsp of baking powder to the mix. It puffs up the batter a bit and gets extra crunchy. And make sure you use a good stout beer. This recipe needs a full bodied dark beer to really get the flavor you're looking for.

Greek Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
I read a review that stated Greek dressing would be more appropriate.I use Italian dressing, because it's sweeter. I use celery too, and sometimes change up the black olives for green pimento or garli stuffed olives instead. Either way, this salad is a hit! Cudos!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
Absolutely Delicious! I did omit the garlic salt and used garlic powder instead. And I melted my butter and dipped the chicken in the butter and then the crumbs without cracking an egg. Really, really good. Tahnk You!

Filet Mignons With Pepper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
This is a very good variation of Steak Au Poivre. The cream sauce is very nice. The only thing I did differently was to cook the filets less. It is a standard misconception that 130 is medium rare. Not true. 120 will come up to medium rare,(125), once it sits for 5-7 minutes. Do NOT cut into the meat or poke it with a thermometer to check for doneness as all the juices will leak out. Figure 2-1/2 minutes per side on medium high for med rare. Please do not overcook filet. There is no fat on this cut and no margin for error!

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
Very good. I did mix Italian breadcrumbs with my flour to coat the chicken pieces, and browned thoroughly, before the remaining steps. I added rosemary and basil as well. I placed 3 portabello mushroom caps on top before covering and finishing. I also used Chianti instead of white wine, as I like a sweeter sauce.

Aaron's Missouri Burger

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
These are really GOOD! Add chopped onion, bell pepper, and chopped mushrooms,an egg and some cracker crumbs, and this would make an excellent meatloaf too. Two thumbs up!

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
I used a cast iron skillet to brown the chicken and cut the cooking time in the oven in half. I also added salt and pepper and a touch of garlic powder to the breasts. I like the flavors but the breasts were still a bit dry. I think next time I'll use bone-in chicken breasts or even chicken thighs, taking a tip from the Chinese.

Enchilada Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
Very salty! In the future i would use low sodium tomato sauce and add my own mexican seasonings. Between the cheese and the enchilada sauce I needed a gallon of water after.

Cheesy Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
It's ok, but Jiffy cornbread mix tastes the same without all the extra work, plus the cheese needs to be mixed into the batter. I also sliced, a seeded deveined jalepeno and add it to the mix. If you want southwest, that's it. If you want southern style, then mix in 1 cup cooked chopped bacon instead of peppers. Voila! BTW, what happened to the cactus shapes mentioned in the original description?

Hidden Cheeseburger

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
This was really good. I used sliced pickles and onions, just like a regular cheeseburger, instead of minced. I also used puff pastry which was perfect. You've got a winner with this one!

Sweet and Sour Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
This was actually pretty good. I added orange juice and mandarin orange sections instead of orange food coloring. Also added scallions sliced into 2 inch pieces and water chestnuts for crunch. I used the light syup pineapple and mandarin orange syrup instaed of granulated sugar, and it came out beautifully. The pineapple and orange syrup add all the sweet plus extra fruit flavor. This recipe screams for a couple of fire cracker peppers too!
