We love feta cheese so this was wonderful. We grilled the burgers and they were flavorful and juicy.

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I doubled the recipe, but cut the brown sugar in half as others suggested. Cooked in the crock pot for a couple of hours without the lid so it wouldn't be so watery. I took them to a party so the crock pot was nice to keep them warm and easy to seve from. Everybody said they were great.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
I made this a few weeks ago and before posting my review I looked at the posted reviews again. How ironic that Constance did the exact thing I did. We like things very spicy and with lots of flavor, so I cut my chicken breasts in strips and doubled the seasoning. It was wonderful. A great change from my usaual Tony Chachere's sprinkled on chicken. I am going to make a big batch of the seasoning mixture to keep on hand for quick seasoning. Thanks for the recipe.

Dilly Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
This is really good and easy to make. Next time I make this I will mix everything toghether and then pour over chicken. I think it would be better that way. Great recipe.

Yummy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
Very good & tender. I did change the way I cooked them. I don't have a skillet large enough to cook 6 pork chops at one time so I baked them in the oven at 350 for about an hour. Before putting the chops in the baking dish I sliced a big onion & laid the rings on the bottom of the dish, put chops on top & pour the sauce over all of it. When it was done I took the chops out, poured the onions & sauce into a pot & reduced it by half. The chops topped with the onions was so good. My picky boys even ate the onions. Thanks for the recipe.

Tara's Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
We don't really care for spaghetti sauce. We maybe eat it once a year if that, but this was really good. I have never bought jarred sauce before so picking one was a challegene. We like hot & spicy foods so we used hot picante sauce. I used spaghetti noodles insted of rice and shredded grilled chicken on top, instead of cooking it in the sauce. Now that I have this recipe maybe we will eat spaghetti more often. Enjoy.

Pleasant Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
I had never cooked anything w/ paprika before, wow, this was really, really good. I only had thin chops, so I combined the bay leaf and 1 cup chicken stock in a pot and boiled covered for 30 min. Then I poured it over the chops and cooked for 30 min. After reading the reviews that the sauce was runny, I made sure I boiled the stock to a 1/4 cup. It came out perfect, very tender. I am going to try this with chicken using white wine for the stock. Thanks for the recipe.

Potunas

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
If you are tired of tuna sandwiches or tuna caserole, this is a great change for canned tuna. I used a little bit more mayo, I think it depends on the size of the potatoes, and added Tony Chazery's for some spice. Very good.

Corn and Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I made this recipe exactly as written. It was great. I made it the night before then added the avacado right before serving. We served it on the side with grilled fish at a cook off and won first place. More people asked us for this recipe than the grilled fish. I am making it again this weekend for another bar-b-que to serve with a grilled jalapeno stuffed chicken recipe from this web site. Enjoy!

Tilapia with White Wine Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
Really, really good and easy. Only thing changed was adding more capers. I live 20 feet from the water and have fresh fish all the time, right off the hook. So I use whatever the fish of the day is. It taste great every time. Also if you like capers there is another great recipe on the site called "Caper Baked Chicken" it is quick and easy like this recipe.

Bloody Mary Steaks with Green Olive Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
Used a good quality bloody mary mix. Great sauce, but the butter was better. Instead of fanning out the steak left it whole and put the butter on top then served the sauce on the side. I doubled the butter mix, freezed it and used it later on garlic bread with another meal.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I have made this many times. It turns out great every time, everyone loves it. I doule the sauce, put the leftovers in the freezer to use in stir fry combined with House of Tsang's spicy szechuan sauce.

Tangy Red Cabbage

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Very good. I replaced a little bit of the olive oil with sesame oil. Next time I will try sauteing this as another reviewer suggested and then refrigerate.

Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Excellent. Served with greek style potatoes fron this site. I am not sure which we liked better the potatoes or chicken. Make sure not to over marinate the chicken or it will have a weird texture. Next time will try putting marinade in blender as another reviewer suggested. We will definetly be making again.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I have already made this a bunch of times. It is wonderful. I don't put the parmesan on it. I put the parsley in the bag with the califlower and cook it all together for the 25 min. Its usally brown enough without broiling.

Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
This was really good. To keep the meat from getting to wet drain the tomatoes first. I used hot bar-b-que sauce because we like things very spicy. I made the meat into six 4x2 loaves instead of one big loaf, they cook in about 25-30 minutes and each person gets their own. Also I made a well in the top of each one and filled with a mixture of sour cream and picante sauce and then topped with cheese during the last 5 minutes of cooking. The people in my house gave it a thumbs up.

Vegetable Whip

These were so good. The only thing I changes was using evaporated milk instead of plain. One of my guys that I cook for won't eat mashed potaoes, but he loved these. Thanks for the recipe.

Fried Cabbage Texas Style

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
I'm from Texas & my grandmother used to make foods like this when I was growing up. I made this with pork chops and cornbread. I don't really eat foods like this anymore, so the bacon grease was a little overwhelming for me, but the guys in my house absolutely loved it. They both had seconds. I usally have to beg to get them to eat even one serving of veges. The only thing I changed was adding more japs, we like things very hot& spicy. I will definetly be making this for them again & again.

Cashew Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
I made this about a month ago before the picture was posted. It was very good. The sauce was wonderful. The only problem I had was that the cashews on the bottom of the chicken got soggy. I had planned to just coat the tops the chicken the next time I made this, but now that I have seen the picture I will cook the chicken with some seasoning and pour the sauce over the top with rice. Thanks for the recipe.
