Whiskey Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
I would recommend this to anyone, but I did "cheat" a little - my chicken breasts were frozen, so I dumped a tablespoon each of water, honey, and single malt scotch on them, crushed some small garlic cloves, and let them "marinate" in the refrigerator for a bit. I also used Johnny Walker (scotch) instead of bourbon, because that's what we had in the house. When I sauteed the chicken, I added the garlic that was in the marinade. And an extra tablespoon of brown sugar, and about 1/8 tsp cornstarch. It needs at least 15 minutes to simmer, I think. I thought this was fabulous served over yellow rice.

Whipped Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
This is a 5 with my modifications, which were minimal. I baked the squash (I used one long heavy one) cut side down in a 1/4 inch of water, at 375 degrees, for a LONG TIME. When the skin is burning, the squash is done. This brings out the flavor and mellows out the texture of winter squash. I scooped it out and added 2-3 TB of butter and about 2/3 cup sour cream. No salt or pepper - instead a heatlhy sprinkling of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice (about a pinch of each?). Blended well with a hand-mixer. This was FABULOUS.

Eggplant Supper Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
This was super good and pleasantly spicy. I did make some minor changes though: Used fresh mildly hot Italian sausage instead of beef, used one 28 oz can of whole tomatoes, chopped, in place of 2 cans Italian style, used 5 cups beef broth made with "Better Than Bouillon" instead of cans of broth, completely left out the macaroni. This was a very satisfying soup and everyone ate it!!

Almond Celery Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I had to substitute for the the cheese and use whatever cheese I had on hand... I also halved the recipe because I didn't have that much celery... I thought this was awesome. My suggestion is to use a high quality cheese, and the almonds are really optional if you don't prefer them.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
I don't like Brussels sprouts usually, but this was super good. My mother was impressed! What more can you ask for??

Pancho Villa Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
I make this recipe slightly different - without the tomatoes, first of all. If you put olive oil on the foil, salt and pepper the fish (frozen is okay), then top with just cilantro and thicker slices of lime - that's all there is to it. Cook in oven, on grill, or over a hot fire (camping). Made this way it is simple and perfect.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
Well, I didn't use the best fish in the world (cheap frozen tilapia fillets) but this was still awesome. The topping is that does it. It is tricky to get the fish broiled just perfectly while also making sure to crisp the topping. But this would work on just about any kind of fish. We really enjoyed it.

Sweet Potatoes 'n' Pears

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
I give it five stars when my husband really likes it.... he's hard to impress. This was really good. A different way to serve yams - by the way, I used one of those large cans of sweet potatoes - a lot less work and it was still great.

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
This was so easy and so good. Hubby and I loved it. Only changes - added celery, a bay leaf, used box of frozen spinach, and lentils did not need 50 minutes cooking. I was very impressed.

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Doubling the recipe, I used strips of beef, one napa (Chinese) cabbage, a small onion, one red and one green pepper, and handful of mushrooms, and omitted the black pepper. Instead I used a 1/4 teaspoon of curry, red pepper, and ginger, and a pinch of cayenne.It was excellent this way - I think it would've been very bland as submitted. Served with jasmine rice.

BBQ Feta and Hot Banana Pepper Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
Why are these called BBQ? I don't get it. I accidentally tried to use a Hungarian yellow pepper instead of a banana pepper. Luckily I tasted it first and it was so hot I almost cried. SO, I put in a green onion instead of the banana pepper - I also seasoned these with Old Bay - I thought they were the best turkey burgers I ever had; although I didn't exactly follow the recipe, I have given this 4 stars.

This is hearty and satisfying. Served over egg noodles. Used green onion instead of green pepper, and seasoned with garlic powder and crushed red pepper. Will make again.

Butter Fried Parsnips

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
Probably not the healthiest way to eat parsnips - but by far the best I have ever tasted. Makes me want to try it with turnips or rutabaga.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
I made it without the raisins. This was more like cake and less like bread. It was very tasty though, and moist, and easy.

Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
My only changes - substituted a bit of canned corn for the mushrooms, did not add carrots, and used water instead of broth. Also used leftover instant brown rice, and cheddar instead of swiss. I really liked this.... it just needed some TANG! So I served with sour cream and it was still missing something. Frank's Red Hot made it so much better. I would make this again.

Paprika Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
I have to say the recipe by itself gets a four, but the way i cooked it gets a three! :) I'm not too good at broiling, so mine were overdone. Also, the topping has a decidedly orange color, which made my husband hope for a spicy dish. This had a good flavor, but be careful and do not use chops that are too thick or too thin (like I did). Also, I used the sauerkraut that has caraway seeds in it, nice touch.

Baked Stuffed Winter Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
This was a lot of work, but worth it. I downsized the recipe for two squashes, and used one orange acorn and one yellow acorn. I also used ground turkey instead of pork, a mix of chopped turnip, carrot and garlic instead of celery. I subbed a small amount of almonds for the pecans, but the recipe would be fine without any nuts at all. I thought the raisins were important. I did not need to mash the squash - after I scooped it, it blended in perfectly . I did add a dash of salt and pepper, and used store-bought Italian breadcrumbs. I topped with cheese for the final bake. This recipe is very forgiving and you could really make lots of substitutions or additions depending on your tastes. My husband and I enjoyed it very much.

Sorta Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
I was very satisfied with how this turned out. I salted and peppered the steaks liberally before flouring. I floured them, chopped an onion and some mushrooms, and then floured a second time. After browning in a large skillet, I removed the steaks and added the onion and some mushroom to the skillet, put the steaks back in, and instead of using beef broth, I used an equal amount of water and a packet of beef/mushroom gravy. This removed the need to make a gravy afterward. My skillet has a lid and the whole thing went into the oven - two hours seemed about right to me - it was great. Hubby wanted more, this is a keeper. Just make sure you season the steaks well and don't be stingy with the worcestershire.
