Mixed Seafood Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
I make almost the same recipe but with fewer ingredients. I use Taste of Thai red curry paste, which has become hard to find. I use about 3/4 of the packet, which I add with the coconut milk. If you like less spice, add less. I also add cut up red pepper and some times snap peas. I have never used lime or brown sugar since I want it spicy, not sweet and I serve over brown rice or whatever sounds good that day. I make this all the time and my boyfriend loves it too!

Absolutely The Best Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
YUM!!! I followed most of the directions. I only used one pound of shrimp, since we actually made this for two but I kept the other ingredients the same. I didn't cook the shrimp for 5 mins, probably closer to 3, since 5 mins seemed like a lot. I added the white wine and not the brandy and didn't bother putting it under the broiler. I'm not sure what that adds. I served over whole wheat linguine (added a bit of olive oil over it first) and topped with some crushed red pepper and fresh parmesan. Not too time consuming and very tasty. We will definitely add this to our regular rotation!

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This is my 2nd time making these. The batter was thicker this time, so I'm not sure what modifications I made the first time around. I'm not usually a pancake person but these were fantastic. It makes a lot!! I made a bunch and stored them in the fridge and would bring two to work for a mid-afternoon snack w/ peanut butter (didn't even heat up). These are great if you're a runner and need something quick to get your energy back. I will never make any other kind again!

This was just ok. The dill sauce was yummy but the salmon was just salmon....not that that's a bad thing but not worth this recipes.

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
These were very easy and tasty. I ran to the store to get the ingrediants and they were out of fresh scallops, so I bought frozen and thawed in water and apparently didn't dry well since it did add quite a bit of water to the dish when they were done. I'll try again with fresh since this was quick and easy.

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Yum!!! I followed other's advice and lessened the amount of mustard, not sure if it would've been too much or not. I used this recipe for tailgating, so mixed the marinade in a ziplock and put the skewered shrimp in a different bag. I threw the shrimp in with the marinade as I was getting the grill ready, so not with it very long. I absolutely loved this and will be making it for our next tailgating party!

Yum and so easy. I used 4 thinly sliced chicken breast, and followed others suggestion and dredged twice through egg and breadcrumbs. I put a layer of tomato sauce in pan and the chx breasts on top with mozzarella on each. I baked at 375 for 30 minutes (putting the cheese on in the last few minutes). Perfect and so easy!

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
I loved these crab cakes!! I've never made them before and thought they came out great! I used 8 ou of lump crab and would try to use fresh as opposed to can, if you can get it. I also only used about 2/3 of the crackers as I that seemed to be enough. I also did not coat with breadcrumbs as there was no need in my opinion. I used the garlic/mayo dipping sauce mentioned in further down in the reviews. So easy!

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
This was so incredibly easy that I was embarrassed to pass on the recipe! Next time I will add more broth so that the meet is covered. Also, I think the key is the BBQ sauce.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
YUM!! This does make a lot and since I'm single, I will be eating it all week. I used fresh basil instead of parsley since I bought for another recipe. I also added 2 cloves of fresh garlic and 1/2 a can of chickpeas, since I love those. I think I will sprinkle some feta on it for lunch tomorrow. This is my first time making quinoa and I'm very happy with this recipe. I've actually made pretty much the same thing in the summer using whole wheat rotini.

Kathy's Roast and Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I used a 1.75lb piece of london broil and as suggested, I browned it first. Not sure if that matters or not. I added 1 can cream of mushroom soup and the dry soup mile. I also poured in some red wine since I had a bottle open. I cut up onions and celery with the potatoes and carrots. I think I had this on high for at least 5 hours. I loved it since it was so easy and tasted yummy!

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
This was a good receipe but not spicy to me at all. I used chicken tenders which equaled 2 boneless breasts, 8oz tomato sauce, 1/4 salsa, 1/2 can refried beans. I also added but didn't measure, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and hot red pepper. It was easy to throw it all in a pot on the stove and shredded fine. I ate it on top of brown rice.

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I actually think these were like a 3 1/2. I don't know what I did wrong but they didn't have a ton of taste to me and didn't hold well together. I added red pepper flakes and extra cumin. The sour cream sauce is the best part. I'm going to go back and read the reviews b/c I want these to work!!

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I loved this recipe!!! I followed other's advice and used 6 cups of chicken broth instead of the boullion and the remainder was water. I used Hillshire Farms spicy sausage and cut it into to pieces, probably only ended up using about 3/4 lb. I cooked on high for about 5 hours and low for one more hour. As others stated, about four hours in, it did seem like it wouldn't thicken but it did. I added marjoram, salt and garlic powder with about one hour left, which is what I always do with slow cookers. I think next time I will add about 1/4 of the bag maybe half way through to see if that has bigger pieces left. I will definitely be making this again!

Lemon Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
I loved this and it was pretty easy, although it did seem to use up lots of utensils/pans. I don't know if I just put more in each puff but my ratio came out perfect, nothing left over, compared to other reviewers. I will definitely be making these again!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
YUM, this was great and healthy!! I used a 28ou can of stewed tomatoes and enough chicken broth to cover (not sure how much it ended up being). I also added 3 smoked ham hocks, which I think really upped the flavor on this. I cooked on high for 5 hours. I know you're not supposed to take the cover off a slow cooker but I noticed the liquid seemed low, so I added about 1 cup of water maybe in the last hour. I also added the dried spices at that time, which is what I always do. I will definitely be making this all winter!

Chocolate Caramel Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
These were a huge hit at a cookout this weekend!! I screwed up and forgot to add the milk to the caramels but everything turned out fine. I melted the caramels in the microwave with 1 Tablespoon of water. I also did not add any nuts since some people don't like them. Other than that, I followed recipe. These were very gooey, so I put them in the fridge for a bit but then they were hard to cut. I think next time I'll line the pan with wax paper so I can just pull them out and cut on a cutting board. I will definitely make these again!
