Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
I give only 4 instead of 5 stars because time was nearly doubled and though we did not use the maple, we found it to be quite bland. I suggest rubbing chicken with salt and pepper prior to laying it in pan, with lightly seasoned potatoes. Next time, we will do so as well as add a teaspoon of cajun seasoning.

Quick Shrimp Lo Mein

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
This was simple to follow and allowed for additions or substitutions- added 1/4 c prepared stir fry sauce, (instead of doubling as others suggested )garlic butter (was out of minced), and crushed walnuts as a topping- didn't have cabbage or snap peas on hand. I also added a dash of worsetshire in place of oyster sauce. Great lo mien!

Cajun Shrimp Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
This was as good as any restaurant bisque I have had in the past. I had nice blue lump crab meat, so I added it in the last 15 minutes. Also, I know that it has enough fat content already, but when making something for the fam for the first time, I go for all out taste - added a cup of shredded colby/jack cheese at end, and 1/2 can of rotel(suggestion from sis) (Tomatoes and green chile)... thanks! My shrimp and crab were glad they were not wasted!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I liked the flavor of these enchiladas more than one other top rated chicken enchilada recipe I tried (That was actually more work involved) So, kudos! Thanks for shariting. Also, I added montery jack and queso cheese with cheddar instead of the colby. I also added freshe sliced green onions.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
This was a great recipe, but I did agree with other reviewer, ...after browning pork chops well in onion and garlic on stove, I baked them, covered in foil 45 minutes...mixed the can of cream of mushroom w/ 1 can of milk and poured that on top....also, instead of salt and pepper, I lightly sprinkled sides of chops before cooking with barbecue seasoning, and added a dash o soy sauce while browning...very good

Red Wine Flavored Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was very good...first time I used red wine in cooking anything...white, yes...I always used cream of mushroom soup after the roast has started to fall apart. I thought I would try something new since I had red wine on hand, and no mushroom soup. Nice/pleasant surprise. I added the entire pack of onion soup mix. I also browned the roast in a cast iron pot, after stuffing in w/ garlic, salting and peppering it, and adding a bit of worstershire sauce.

Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
This recipe was okay...wish I could say more. I wanted to give it a shot, as a switch from the way we normally cook gumbo... But, sorry but still believe the roux is key to a perfect gumbo in our home. For those that have never made a roux or gumbo, please try this method: use equal parts canola or vegetable oil and flour (we use 3/4 cup)... on medium low heat, constantly stir oil and flour in cast iron pot or magnalite pot...NEVER leave it, and NEVER try to rush it... Stir until the roux becomes a color of a penny or mahogany color, and then add your onions (2 chopped yellow) and green pepper, with a teaspoon minced garlic. Also, we don't like the consistancy of chopped celery, so we use whole stalks for flavor. Also, boil your chicken night before, and debone to have ready if you like. We use a whole cut up chicken or whole chicken, drain it and use tbe broth for gumbo. When making the gumbo Do NOT cook the COOKED chicken that long in your gumbo!... as others have said, nor the shrimp! After sauteing your veggies, and adding your broth, then chicken... allow to cook for about 30 minutes on medium low heat...add shrimp (and fresh parsley :) and allow to cook another 30 minutes.

Savory Vegetable Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
This was really very good! I used italian dry seasoning mix / blended w/ the flour instead of cooking it in italian dressing, and browned meat in olive oil. I really liked finding this recipe because only other way i made stews (being from south louisiana), was with a roux to start. This was much easier and just as delicious! Thanks... oh and i added a bit of cumin to the meat as well as worstershire sauce after it was browned, as well as a bit more salt and a teaspoon of dry cajun seasoning, 2 tablespoons parsley to the stew after adding the vegtables.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to grill but used the sauce to flavor the chicken before cooking it in the wok, with asian veggies. I added a few shakes of chicken boullion granuals and two tablespoons of brown sugar...look forward to basting with it on the grill next time.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
Very good scampi recipe, but I did think that it was a tad bland as some other reviewers. Maybe being from South LA, I am used to more spice/seasonings. I added 1 Table spoon dried Cajun seasoning,as well as a spash of hotsauce.
