Pollo Oaxaca

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I’m unsure why this recipe is getting such good reviews. I used to live in Mexico and this recipe isn’t really authentic at all plus it is very bland. After making it once exactly as written, I made it a 2nd time with the following changes: - Substitute jalapeno pepper for Serrano, and use 3-4 serrano peppers. -Boil raw, bone in chicken breasts with just enough water to cover chicken, a tsp of chicken bouillon per cup of water, few garlic cloves minced, ½ onion -Once chicken is no longer pink, take out of broth and set aside. Meanwhile - - Sautee tomatillos, Serrano peppers, 3 garlic cloves, ½ medium onion in pan with 1/3-1/4 cup chicken broth you have from cooking your chicken. After the tomatoes have turned slightly brown on all sides, puree in blender with 1 tsp of oregano. Once sauce is pureed to the consistency you like, take chicken off bone and spoon sauce over chicken. Since the chicken broth will be salty from the boullion, I let each person salt according to their own taste. I like to top with cilantro, queso fresco, lettuce, and a bit of lime juice. I eat it with fresh corn tortillas so it is almost more like enchiladas but it tastes much better than the original recipe.

Turkish Red Lentil 'Bride' Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I made this soup for a Turkish friend and she agrees that it’s very close to authentic and delicious. My only suggestion is to keep the lid on the pot as the lentils and bulgur absorb a lot of the liquid. I like heat so I doubled the cayenne.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
This recipe was nothing special. If anything it was quite bland. I followed the recipe exactly as written except I substituted vegetable stock instead of chicken broth to make it vegetarian. I never understand why people review a recipe when they didn't really follow it!

Curried Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
This is one of the worst recipes I’ve made from this site. I followed the recipe exactly and it was pretty gross. To try to save it I tried adding additional curry powder and some salt/pepper and cayenne but it didn’t help at all. I will not be making again.

Pakistani Lentil Curry

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
Excellent recipe. Very close to what I’ve had at the homes of Pakistani friends. I took other reviewers’ suggestions and used 3 cups of vegetable stock instead of 4. I also doubled the spices. I added about ½ cup of coconut milk instead of milk. This really made the dish.

Ancho-Chipotle Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
I used to live in Mexico and this recipe is very similar to what my Mexican mom would make. I couldn't find ancho chiles at the local market so I substituted 1/4 tsp. of dried ancho spice. Word of advice - I only had tomatoes with green chilis. I DO NOT recommend using these as it made the salsa way too spicy for some.

Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
Good recipe but it can get expensive to make with the whole can of red peppers and the sun-dried tomatoes. When I made it the 2nd time I omitted the red peppers and tomatoes and the taste was just as good if not better. Try omitting these 2 ingredients for a more cost effective recipe. Hummus also turned out too watery when following the directions as written - be cautious and add the water little by little. You really don't need an entire half cup.

Barbeque Tempeh Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
Great base recipe but a must in preparing tempeh is steaming beforehand to take the bitterness away. What I do is grate the tempeh instead of cutting into small pieces. The smaller the tempeh the better it can soak in the marinade. After grating the tempeh, I steam for 30 minutes and then follow the recipe as is. Believe me – steaming tempeh beforehand will greatly improve the taste!

Absolutely the BEST Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing Ever!

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
This is the best blue cheese dressing recipe I’ve ever tried. It is delicious! I used low fat sour cream, mayo, and buttermilk and you couldn’t even tell. We quadrupled the recipe and still didn’t have any left over.

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
I really like sun dried tomatoes but I did not care for this recipe at all. It was incredibly dry and I followed the directions exactly as written.

West African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
I love peanut butter but the peanut butter taste overpowered any other flavor in this soup. I am going to make it again but use ½ the amount of peanut butter and then I think it would be great.

Broccoli Cheese Soup III

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Great recipe that tastes very similar to Panera's broccoli cheese soup. I followed the recipe exactly but substituted vegetable broth, doubled the cheese, and added a handful of onions to the boiling broth. I would recommend adding a few teaspoons of black pepper.

Jalapeno Popper Wontons

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
As is, the recipe is just okay. The 2nd time I made them I used a previous reviewer’s suggestion and substituted diced Anaheim chilies instead of jalapenos. I also added 1 tsp of onion powder and 1 tsp of garlic powder to the cream cheese mixture. This makes a huge flavor difference. I used a little bit of egg to bind the wontons together and after spraying with olive oil cooking spray, I baked in the oven at 425 for about 7 minutes. A lot healthier than deep frying and easier too.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
Great recipe with a few tweaks. As other reviews suggested, I cut the squash in half, de-seeded, and roasted (cut side down with skin on) in a pan with some olive oil and salt/pepper for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. I then let the squash cool and peeled/cubed it. I think roasting really brings out the flavor. I also made it vegetarian and substituted the water/bouillon for 3 cups of vegetable broth and double the cayenne pepper. It was delicious! Very rich so if you like thinner soup, I would suggest using half the amount of cream cheese.

Jalapeno Lentil Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2014
This is by far one of the worst veggie/lentil burger recipes. I even boiled the lentils in vegetable broth and used the whole jalapeno but it had very little flavor. Takes a lot of time to finely dice the other veggies and the end result is a dry, mushy patty. I would not make this again.

Beer Cheese Soup VI

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
As written this recipe is 2 stars. I had to do a lot of doctoring to make it good including adding garlic, adding Velveeta, doubling the amount of cheddar cheese, and using corn starch to thicken the soup up. It’s an okay recipe but I will try another one next time with better flavor.

Spinach and Blue Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
Delicious and made exactly as written except using fresh spinach and vegetable broth instead of chicken. Word of caution - you really have to love bleu cheese to like this soup. The taste is VERY, VERY strong.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
Based on other reviews I almost doubled the sauce and used a sundried tomato alfredo sauce instead of regular spaghetti sauce. It was a huge hit and completely devoured!

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
I substituted cream of celery to make it vegetarian. Also used hash browns that already included onions to avoid that step. Very good but too much butter. Next time I’ll omit adding melted butter to the main mixture as it’s greasy enough with all the cheese.

Fried Cabbage and Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
I really don’t understand all the great reviews. As is, the recipe is extremely bland. Maybe that’s how it is supposed to be but to my family and I, it really lacked flavor. I added 2 tablespoons of minced garlic and one medium sized onion sautéed to the mixture the 2nd time. This greatly improved the flavor.
