Real Homemade Tamales

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2013
Im only giving this 4 stars because I had to make a lot of changes. As written it is very bland and heavy. The first batch I made the masa turned out very plain and heavy too. I made another batch the next day and I made many changes based on others input. I cooked pork shoulder with an onion and a whole head of garlic, separated. I used the pork broth to mix with the masa. To the chili sauce I added an onion and 6 cloves of garlic and some chili powder and cumin and lots of salt, blended it all up and mixed half with the meat and half with the masa. I also added sliced pickled jalapenos to the meat mix. I also like to add 1 black olive and a thin slice of potato to each tamale after I put the meat filling on the masa. My 2nd batch turned out so well. I also made some with a strip of green chile and cheese, they were yummy too. Im so glad I finally decided to make some tamales on my own. I cant wait to experiment with other fillings.

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
I thought the texture of this was excellent. I didnt have a gas stove or grill so I just put the tortillas on a cast iron skillet and charred them that way. I will make this again but next time I will season the chicken much more, and add some sauteed onions with garlic and peppers. It was ok, it just needed more.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
I followed the recipe almost exactly. The only difference I made was to braise the meat in broth for 45 minutes until it was tender, then I added it to the rest of the sauce after I had thickened it with flour. I didnt want to have to stand over the stove stirring a thickened sauce for 45 min. I thought this was very good. It was definitely not the normal beefy flavor that Im used to with beef stroganoff with the white wine and mustard but it was very good.

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
This was so good. I ended up adding a small cucumber and putting the avocado in right before I served it. I fried up some corn tortillas and we ate it with that. If you buy cooked shrimp, this dish would be super easy!

Middle Eastern Kibbeh

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
This was so good. We had kibbeh at my husband's bosses house and we have been wanting it ever since. This recipe was wonderful. I pressed it into a pan and baked it. I added a half cup of toasted pine nuts. Next time I may add more seasonings and salt. I served it with a salad of tomato, cucumber, onion, olive oil and lemon. Then some hummus, tzatkiki and pitta bread.

Easy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I thought this was just ok. Maybe if I try it again Id only put the cornflake mix onto the tops of the chicken breasts. When I coated them, the bottom part that was on the pan never got crispy, just soggy. I wasnt a huge fan of the french dressing either.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
This was ok. I thought it was very basic. I did use 2 cans of tuna and I added a little milk to the soup mix so it would be more runny. I also added 1 can of mixed veggies to boost the health factor.

Chocolate Haystacks

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
I thought these were really good and really easy. I made them in about 5 minutes. I used 1 cup of marshmallows and still felt like there were a ton. I might omit them next time and do extra nuts and chow mein noodles.

Breakfast Casserole III

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Great recipe. I used frozed potatos obrien instead of baking my own. I also added some chopped bell peppers to the sausage when I browned it. As great as it was, the leftovers were even better the next day wrapped in a tortilla with some sour cream and hot sauce!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
This was really good. I gave 4 stars because it was very bland and needed a lot to get it going. Once seasoned properly, very yummy. I used rotini pasta instead of egg noodles. I also used some white wine to deglaze the pan after I had sauteed the veggies. I added 1/2 the cheese into the sauce. I didnt have mushrooms, so I added carrots and peas. I was able to lighten it up by sauteeing the veggies in olive oil and then only using 2 Tbsp butter for the white sauce.

Mission Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I thought this was very good. I gave 4 stars because I feel it needed a few changes. I used enchilada sauce in place of the pizza sauce. Also, I cooked the ground beef with a packet of taco seasoning, to add flavor. It turned out great!

Water Chestnuts Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
I LOVE these. I used 1/2 cup soy sauce and 1/2 cup brown sugar. mixed it all together and then let them marinate. I cooked mine at 375 for 25 minutes because I wanted them very crisp. I made up a nice sauce of equal parts honey and mustard. It was a perfect dip for these gems! Thanks for posting!
