Kosher Salt Encrusted Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
Oh my GOD if I could give this a 10 I would have - Slow cook this puppy and take it out with a meat thermometer reading of 130 degrees for rare, by the time you get the crust off it will be PERFECT, just like in a five star restaurant. It was the best rib roast I've ever made.

Chicken Jalfrezi

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
I make something different for my man every night and he said he wouldn't mind having this one again. I loved it too. I have to admit I did add a bit more garlic - we're big garlic fans. Very flavorful & great over white rice.

Creamy Cilantro Chicken with a Kick

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
As excited as I was to try this I was equally disappointed. After reading the reviews I decided to marinate overnight which did give the chicken an infused cilantro flavor but the sauce - just throw it out, trust me, it was bitter and beyond saving. We did save the chicken (which cooked beautifully under the broiler by the way) by adding a little butter and salt after placing atop white rice. My boyfriend said don't bother trying this one again and I agree, he did eat it but... I've had much better success with Cilantro Lime chicken by just marinating chicken in 1/4c olive oil, 1/4 cup fresh lime juice & cilantro (chopped handful) overnight then grilling. You could always add chopped serranos for a kick.

Portobello Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
I tried to add to this (real garlic & spices) to spice it up a bit as suggested and it was still blah. The only thing I could suggest that might save it is to add a can of cream of mushroom soup. Sorry, it was edible but I won't be making it again.

Granny's Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
Chicken came out soggy. It was very zingy and had interesting flavor but overall I wasn't thrilled with it.

Pork in Olive Oil Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This was delicious. I, being a garlic & cilantro fan did add more than suggested of each. Both my boyfriend and I thought it was awesome. Not a morsel was left. I served it over white rice. This will be a pork staple in my household, easy, quick & delicious!

Eggplant Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
After my boyfriend got through ranting "where's the MEAT???!!!" He told me he really liked these. I thought they were quite delicious as well. I took one of the reviewer's suggestions and used pepper jack, with that & the bite of raw onions they were quite tasty. My honey did say the meal was a bit light for him & should have fries or tots as a side. I would suggest 2 minutes instead of 5 in the microwave.

Mom's 'Sweet 'n' Sours' Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
I was looking for a different flavor for some country style ribs (boneless) I had on hand and thought I'd try this out. I cut up the meat into bite sized pieces, boiled for 1/2 hour, drained and then followed the recipe being sure to brown the meat well. It was absolutely delicious! I used rice vinegar as it didn't specify what type and served over white rice. Both the boyfriend and I just loved it, he would have preferred a bit thinner sauce to mix into the rice but I thought it was fine. Best sweet & sour we've ever had. This is going in the recipe box and will be repeated again and again!!! UPDATE!!! I cut some pork loin chops into bite sized cubes, shook in salted, peppered flour, browned in oil & then added the liquid with one addition, about a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger. WOW! That brought it to an all new level of delicious!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
This was delicious! I did modify a bit - I used butter, oil & 3 cloves minced fresh garlic to brown the chops, I used cooking sherry instead of white wine and added a chopped Portabello mushroom that I had on hand to the sauce. I did use the family sized can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom and it was perfect. I will make this again and again, it was tender, moist and the sherry gave the soup interest - a wonderful blending of flavors. My honey loved it too!

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
The flavor was good but I thought the liquid smoke was a bit overpowering. Don't do what I did and substitute NY steak, that's just what I had on hand, the texture came out something like shark. Overall it was tasty and the bad part was probably my fault. There is no substitute for Rib Eye!!!

Romantic Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
With the following modifications this dish was fabulous! I chopped 6 boneless, skinless thighs into bite sized pieces, added 5 cloves minced garlic and 3 chilies de arbol to the butter & oil, saute'd and then set aside. I used sherry instead of white wine and just to be sure I put a spoonful (just before the final step) in a bowl and tasted it with and without heavy cream - ADD THE CREAM! The cream adds to the presentation as well. After I added the capers I added 1 cup or 1/2 pint of heavy cream and served over white rice. It was fabulous! Even my boyfriend, who isn't a fan of artichokes, LOVED it and scarfed it up like there was no tomorrow.

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2006
The steaks were beautiful but the flavor was a bit peppery and kinda blah. Do watch out for that first flare of the brandy, it can flare as much as 3 feet high initially but then simmers down & extinguishes rather quickly, saw a gal in a Greek restaurant light her hair on fire that way once. The sauce was delicious on the baked potatoes I served with, but lost something on the steak, my honey agreed.

Jenny's Cuban-Style Slow-Cooker Chicken Fricassee

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
I really enjoyed this dish and it's distinctly Cuban flavor but my honey wasn't crazy about it and said he wouldn't mind not having it again. I did boil and cube the potatoes before adding them to the mix and they turned out perfect. The flavor reminded me a great deal of the Garlic Chicken at a local Cuban restaurant, fewer vegetables in theirs but the flavor was very close.

Paprika Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
Absolutely delicious. Don't change anything - you might even want to double the sauce! We both LOVED this recipe! Oh! Almost forgot DO pound thicker chops down or buy thin ones as our super thick Costco chops had to go back into the oven.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
The meatloaf itself was good but the sauce was, well, yucky. My honey thought so as well. I'd make it without the 'glaze' if I did it again.

Carne Con Chilies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
Fantastic and authentic! Since my honey likes 'build your own taco' style I cubed the meat - I also added just a touch of water to the veggies at first and then drained it off later to keep them from burning, they then cooked perfectly. We LOVED it! I used Cisneros tomatillos which are HUGE and even with that variable it still turned out excellent. I served the pork w/help yourself condiments of chopped green onion, chopped tomato, guacamole, cilantro & jack and cheddar cheeses.We will have this one often, it was a big hit!

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Okay, I am updating my previous 4 star review and giving this 5 stars with the following tweaks: Dale's instead of soy sauce and using bone in, skinless chicken thighs in a glass pie plate, baking for about 45 minutes. I also used a cast iron butter melting pot to mix the ingredients (used nearly a head of garlic too) - microwaves alter the properties of even water, I avoid them if at all possible. I turned the thighs once during cooking making sure to spoon some of the garlic chunks on top. This was absolutely DELICIOUS! Served with rice-a-roni chicken flavored rice (yeah, took the easy way out but I did ad slivered almonds) and spooned some of the to die for sauce over that - wow! Unbelievable~! Went from flavorless on the grill to can't beat it in the oven. Do try it!

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
This one is hard to screw up, I'd thought I had overcooked the pork but it was still moist & tender, you could get away with half an onion though as we had lots leftover after the fact. I really enjoyed it and especially liked the Feta. My honey didn't care for the Feta but other than that he liked it and said he would enjoy having it for dinner again.
