Mexican Beef Supreme

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Hey Melissa! I hope you marry that man, don’t let a cook like that get away! This was a very good and I would say authentic dish. It was very easy to prepare. Reminiscent of Rachael Ray's 30 minute meals! It goes together nicely and inexpensive to make as well. The only think I personally would say I did not like was the spicy factor (I even seeded the pepper as most of the heat is in the seeds). BUT I am a huge wimp when it comes to spice; my husband on the other hand loved it and felt it too be too mild! I will make it again and use half of the jalapeno (he has a cabinet of hot sauce that one of which would compliment this well). The spice really does enhance the flavor so it would be foolish to leave it out. We served this on tortillas, but tastes just as good over the yellow rice we served with it. I served with sour cream as well (A LOT, helped tone down the spice!). ALSO! Please be careful cutting those darn peppers! I got the pepper juice under a few of my nails! OUCH! I was up all night will burning fingers! This was definitely a hit and I am holding on to this one and will make it again. FINALLY I have found a good recipe here again. I have had quite a few misses from here recently. This recipe alone has redeemed all recipes for me!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
I have been looking all over for this recipe. My mother used to make this when we were kids! What a yummy treat. I did however have to throw it out after the first night becasue I ate too much of it and I did not want it around to mess up my diet. It was soooo good I could not control myself!

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
This turned out really good! I enjoyed the flavor and it came out moist, I was worried it would be dry. I made no changes really, only I did forget to put in the bouillon granules & Parsley, but I did not realize that until just now, LOL! I am putting the leftovers in my salad for lunch tomorrow, very yummy! I served with Garlic Cous Cous and corn on the cob. Will make again and will pass on.

Caramelized-Onion, Spinach, and Bacon Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2003
I made this this evening and while it was very tasty, I had a very hard time with the pizza dough resulting in a very chewy crust. Also my amateur attepmt at preparing the dough called for a thick mess that tore and did not fit the pan allowing a good amount of excess liquid to spill on to the counter and drip onto the floor (the dog didn't mind!) I will use the prepared crust (thus negating the light concept) in the future to make this a truely easy quiche. My husband and I both love this and for 5 points per slice, it's a keeper! : )

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2003
This was very good! To lower the fat and calorie content, I subistuted the 3 eggs for 5 egg whites and the cup on oil for unsweetened applesauce (if you do this, do not over stir). Also, my neighbor had given me half a bushel of summer squash, so I used that in lieu of zucchini. It turned out wonderful! This is a keeper!

Thanksgiving Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2003
Lower the fat in this tasty dish by using 3 egg whites and water. Add any extras to give more flavor, I add onions and garlic (a friend of mine adds peppers). This is a great 2 point per serving for those on Weight Watchers when prepared as mentioned above. My picky (and I do mean picky) toddler absolutly adores this! Very easy to make too! Sometimes to give the more tradional meatlaof appearence, I add tomato sauce. Not necessary, but tasty nonetheless!

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
I made this for a dinner party. The flavor was different and it was tasty. I was not really to my personal taste, but my husband and our guests enjoyed it. I doubled the sauce as well. I will pass his on and I may make this again if requested.

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
First, I scaled this to 3 servings and used boneless skinless chicken. I added extra garlic and also threw in a Vidalia onion. I browned the chicken, not fully cooked though. I then added my brown sugar, halving as I tasted my wine, a cabernet, as it was a somewhat sweeter wine. I cooked it as directed for 5 minutes and lowered it and added fresh, sliced Baby Bellas. Covered and finished cooking. Came out moist and delicious! I aroma is just to die for! Served with plain ol' mashed potatoes and green beans. Will make again! Oh, and if you use a bad wine it will turn out bad...it's the golden rule with cooking...never cook with a wine you won't drink, because when the alcohol cooks off, all you are left with is the flavor!

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2003
We really enjoyed this! I used a too thick leftover london broil that rufused to cook (completely raw in the middle) on the grill the night before at was a little over 1.5 lbs and it had been slathered in A-1 and Canadian Seasoning. I leiu of canned I opted for 8 oz fresh Baby Bella (Cimini) Mushrooms, which I added from the start and they held up wonderfully. Also gave it much more garlic than called for (we're garlic lovers) and added Seasoned Salt as per other reviewrs suggestions that it came out under seasoned. I used a fat free sour cream at the end to kick a wee bit of the fat content out and we enjoyed it over egg noodles. The worst part about this recipe is having to smell it and drool until dinner time! : ) Served with a fresh whole wheat bread from the bakery. Will definitly make again!

Award Winning Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
This should have won first place! The overall flavor of this chili is outstanding!!! My husband who is a heat freak, likes a spicer chili but REALLY enjoyed the favor of this chili. I used my slow cooker for this and it turned out fantastic! Even without cilantro this is so very colorful. The only thing I did different was added celery seed rather then the celery. After it was all together I realized I neglected to add the acctual celery, so I added the seed, which I like better since it was already chunky enough with the other veggies. Oh, and I added northern white beans since I hate kidney beans.

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
This deserves 5 stars! I was looking for an easy banana bread recipe and I looked at the more higher rated ones on this site. I saw far too many bad reviews in those and some that required more work than I felt like for a simple bread. The simplicity of this recipe appealed to me and I am glad I used it. It came out wonderful and I am not a big Banana Bread fan! I followed it to the tee just adding a VERY heaping cup full of bananas and some cinnamon. EVEN BETTER the next day. I will note though, it took a full hour in my oven (which is only a year old) and it was still a bit gooey in the center. So I turned the oven off and left it in the oven for about 15 minutes and it yeilded perfect results! I will keep this recipe for good. Thank you for sharing Pat.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

MMMMMMM, this was very tasty, and I too doubled the sauce and used two pork chops, next time I will triple it though because I enjoyed the flavor so much. Nothing really needs to be changed though.

Biscotti Toscani

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
This turned out very well! I admit for some reson mking biscotti was a bit intimidating, but all in all it was quite easy to make. The ingredients were basic. I didn't use oragne zest only becasue I didn't have an orage on hand, but it didn't need it anyhow. I will try it next time, but it still tastes fine without it. These were very tasty amd I will make hem again!

Cranberry Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2002
Okay, I have two reviews...kind of...one, before I prepared this I gave it to my mother who a)cooked it in the oven w/ foil, b)Made it with whole cranberries and c)used 1/4 cup of sugar. She had 6 guests over and they all loved it and begged for the recipe! I made it today in my slow cooker with jellied and a little over a fourth of sugar and it was tender and amazing! I cooked it on low for 5 and a half hours and it was done(meat thermometer registered at 170). I was incredible and very man friendly! So two points here, if you don't have a slow cooker it is still great in the oven and if you don't have jellied, whole will suffice! Oh and also, to skim fat a paper towel does the trick!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
Since there are so many reviews to this recipie, I do not know if this was mentioned. When I made mine and instead of the 4 quart casserole pan, I used two 9 inch cake pans. I am only cooking for two so I froze the other. This was so very good! My husband, a tex/mex food fan, loved it (he added his favorite hot sauce to it since he loves extra extra heat)! No alterations need to be added to this. The ingreidents weren't hard to find and very inexpensive. Preparation was so easy! I served it with tortilla chips, sour cream and salsa. It's a good weekend or Friday night dish.

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2003
Wonderful, Wonderful!!!! This was a great recipe! I have never made this type of dish before and it turned out great! I used a London broil as my meat; it was a very nice cut I might add! I did not use fresh parsley, all I had on had was dried, but it didn't matter, it was still great! I have put this in my personal cookbook! I just want to add to anyone who wants to try this, please remember this and make it a rule of thumb, my mother always told me, never cook with a wine that you wouldn't drink, because when the alcohol cooks off, all you have left is the flavor, so please, make sure you use a good wine. I recommend CK Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a great wine and reasonably priced.
