Simple Ranchy Breaded Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
I am not a big fish fan, but I had some tiliapia fillets I needed to use and wanted a recipe to help mask the fishy taste. This somewhat did the job, but then again, I did things a little differently than directed. I dredged the fillets in flour, then in egg and then covered them with the ranch/bread crumb mixture. I sprayed a baking pan with Pam and threw them in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes, flipping them over halfway through. They came out crispy and golden. I thought the taste was good, but I needed some tartar sauce to go along with it. I will more than likely make this again when I have tilapia on hand.

Garlic Parmesan Orzo

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This recipe combines a lot of my favorite ingredients, so I had to give it a try! I used arborio rice since I didn't have orzo and I omitted the salt because I cooked the rice in chicken broth. Delicioso!!! I think I probably added a little more milk to make it creamier. It was a filling and comforting side dish.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I impressed both my family and friends with this one, y'all! I didn't stray toooo much from the recipe. (Well, maybe) For the meat, I marinated chicken overnight, used 1 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of cayenne (did this for the kids and for those non-spicy eaters - it still had a little kick!) and 2 tsp of garam masala. I broiled the chicken instead, flipping the pieces after about 7 minutes. Other than that, as directed. For the sauce, now....I quadrupled it! Yes, I said quadrupled! I LOVE sauce and I love to have plenty for my rice and naan. I sauteed half an onion with the jalapeno and 4 cloves of minced garlic. I used four 8-ounce cans of tomato sauce, a 13.5 oz can of coconut milk and 8 oz of heavy cream. I was a little worried that the tomato sauce would be over-powering, but it wasn't! I used 5 tsp each of cumin, paprika and garam masala and 1 tsp of salt. I served on top of spiced basmati rice and with naan. I wouldn't be surprised if I am asked to make this again next weekend!

Simple Spiced Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Where has this recipe been all of my life??!?!?! I was so impressed with the way this turned out. I rinsed the rice real good and soaked it for 30 minutes before cooking. I used chicken broth instead of water. OH. MY. GOODNESS. This is the best rice I have ever made and the smell.....oh! My house smelled wonderful! I served this with the Chorizo and Lentil Stew recipe from this site. I highly recommend this combination for an Indian-inspired meal! I will be making this rice over and over again.

Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
What a great meal I was able to make! I served this with the Simple Spiced Rice recipe from this site for a Indian-inspired dinner. I used Cacique Beef Chorizo, chicken broth instead of water, added 1 tsp of garam masala and no salt or pepper. I loved the texture, taste and spice! Thanks!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
So quick and easy as well as very tasty! I was a little short of 2lbs of pork, so I made up for it with chicken breast. Except for that and using more salt, I made as directed. There is no doubt that I will be making this again and double, at that!

Sausage and Sauerkraut Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
This is getting 5 stars for ease, taste and surprise factor - I would have never imagined that this would be as delicious as it was!!! Wow. I basically followed the recipe, but I used a regular roll of breakfast sausage, as that was all I had. Also, I only had colby/jack cheese. In addition to the cheese that gets mixed in, I sprinkled more on top. Served with bread. Next time, if I use breakfast sausage, I will be sure to drain it better and get more of the grease off - it was a tad greasy. I can't wait to have leftovers tonight!

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
BOOM! This was toooooo good! I seasoned the breasts first with onion and garlic powder, as well as poultry seasoning. I used fresh, smoked swiss from the deli and used a little over an ounce (about a slice and a half) per breast. I used a 1/2 cup of evaporated milk with 1 can of cream of chicken and 1 can of cream of mushroom. I like a lot of "gravy" and this was plenty! For the topping, I used one whole box of stuffing. Now, the stuffing wasn't as "done" as I had expected it to be, but I didn't care that it was a little mushy. The flavor of this dish was outstanding. Perhaps I should I have broiled it for a few minutes at the end? I served with fresh, steamed broccoli. I can't wait to make this again. I will be adding fresh mushrooms next time around!

Chicken with Tomatillos and Poblanos

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
This was good and even better the next day. The only thing I did different from the recipe was adding a can of corn and a serrano pepper. Also, I used both red and yellow bell pepper. I served with chicken-flavored rice and refried beans. The next day, we ate all three wrapped up in fresh, flour tortillas.

Broccoli and Cheese Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I made this for my dad on father's day yesterday. Everyone seemed to enjoy this, including myself! It was very simple to prepare; I prepared it the night before, refrigerated it overnight and popped it into the oven the next morning. I followed the recipe as written, except for that I sprinkled green onion on the top over the tomatoes. The next time I make this, I will be adding sauteed onions and mushrooms to the broccoli/sausage mixture, as well as a little more sausage. I would like more tomatoes on the top, so either I will add more slices or dice a few romas and put them on there instead. Thanks for this great recipe!

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
What an interesting, tasty flavor! To me, it was a cross between mole and barbecue. I swapped the tomato sauce for tomato paste, since I had no sauce on hand. It made the sauce way too thick in the end, so I will make sure I have tomato sauce on hand next time. I added a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Like I said, it was a great flavor and definitely something I will be making again. So easy! After dinner, I took the remaining legs and stripped them of the meat. I put the meat in a container, scooped out all of the extra sauce from the crock pot and mixed it in with the chicken and shredded it real good. I served it on egg rolls today and it was equally as delicious!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Fabulous. I added sauteed mushrooms and spinach. I added extra chicken broth as needed. No fresh basil on hand, so I used dry leaves. Also, I thought I had orzo on hand, but didn't; I had arborio rice. Even though I didn't follow the recipe hardly at all, the result was still awesome. I will definitely be making this again as written - no add-ins - with all of the right ingredients.

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Heavenly it is indeed! I had been craving egg salad for a long time and what's a better way to use up all of those Easter eggs??? I didn't have Dijon mustard or a lemon on hand. I substituted spicy brown mustard for the Dijon and 1.5 T of lemon juice for the fresh lemon. I was a little worried about the spicy brown mustard, but all turned out just fine. It was fantastic!! I served on toasted wheat bread with lettuce and had kettle chips and fresh fruit on the side. Next time I will be doubling or tripling the recipe! MMMM MMMM MMMM

Smothered Green Beans II

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
I really enjoyed this recipe, although I did make changes after reading several reviews: used 1 large onion, 1 cup of chicken broth instead of water, 3 tbsp brown sugar and 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce. I simmered on low for 30 minutes and they turned out just how I like them: not crunchy and not mushy. Delicious! This will now be a regular dinner side dish.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
This was very good - definitely tasty, but I wouldn't say the best I have ever had. I cooked everything in crock pot on low for about 10 hours while I was at work. I used baby portabellas and a whole onion in addition to the carrots (which I used about 3/4 bag of baby carrots) and celery. I was a little concerned about lack of liquid, so once everything was in the crock pot, I threw a little splash of water in there. There was lots of "juice" to work with in the end and it was quite flavorful. I added another envelope of brown gravy mix, as I like my gravies super rich and, yes, a little salty. Even so, everyone thought the gravy and veggies were perfect, despite the addition of more gravy mix. I would make this again the same way, but will probably add some peas at the end of cooking.

Buffalo Chicken and Ranch Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
Fast, fresh and delicious! I sauteed some onions and garlic and took my already cooked chicken (leftovers that had been in the freezer) and stuck in the same pan to warm it up. I used a little more buffalo sauce than called for in the recipe. I used green spinach and herb tortillas. The combination of tomatoes, shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese and ranch really worked well with the meat mixture! Next time I will be adding chopped avocado. They looked beautiful and tasted WONDERFUL!

Cabbage, Potato and Baked Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
I doctored this up a bit and enjoyed it very much. I added carrots and bell pepper to the other veggies. At the end, I added a can of tomato paste, so it turned out to be a tomato-vegetable soup. I almost added ground turkey, but didn't. I also thought about adding chunks of ham. I think either would have made it even better. I will definitely make again.

Easy Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
This was my first gravy-making attempt and it couldn't have gone any better! All I have to say is: WOW. I used a whole roll of sausage and threw in a healthy-sized glob of butter before flouring. This is now my go-to recipe for gravy! No more envelope mixes for us!

Pasta with Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
I made this as a side dish for grilled mesquite chicken breasts and it paired perfectly. I used TWO tbsp of olive oil, added 2 minced garlic cloves and used an entire can of chicken broth. I let the asparagus, mushrooms, garlic and pepper flakes simmer for a while and added a little bit of onion salt. I added two good-sized tbsp of Country Crock to the pasta before mixing with vegetables. Once mixed, the pasta absorbed almost all of the broth and left the perfect amount of "sauce". I always have a way of taking a healthier recipe and making it not-so-healthy. At any rate, it was fairly light and quite delicious. I will make it again.
