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.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
Good flavor but no sauce to speak of which brought gripes from my boyfriend, we had leftovers plus extra filling so last night I carefully scooped out the filling from the leftover pie into a large sauce pot, added the extra filling I had set aside and stirred in a can of family sized Campbell's cream of chicken soup (w/enough milk to bring the whole lot to the right consistency) heated it through and served it over the warmed pie crust -that did the trick - it was delicious and tasted even better than the pies from the famous Chicken Pie Shop of San Diego. Definitely add the soup - it makes this recipe perfect and earns it that 5th star. I also used the flaky butter crust, it was a perfect compliment and had the best flavor of any crust I've ever made.

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!

Grilled 'Fusion' Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
Didn't have garlic or ginger paste so I used minced fresh garlic & shredded fresh ginger + fresh squeezed lime juice, etc. Good flavor, moist and delicious, will make again.

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.

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.

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.

Roasted Vegetable Ratatouille

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
I read some of the suggestions and here's what I did: Salted the eggplant for 10 minutes before adding to dish (peeled both eggplant and zucchini), added razor thin garlic and crimini mushrooms, marjoram, fresh rosemary from the garden and crushed some whole oregano into the vegetables before tossing them in olive oil. Roasted in a 400 degree oven, poured Prego meat sauce & stirred then sprinkled panko & parmesan over, topped with some mozzarella & a little more of the parmesan mixture and popped back in the oven for about 20. It was delicious!!! Thanks for the recipe!

Steak Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
I didn't know what to do with some round tip cap meat Tony brought home so I tried it with this & it was pretty darned good! Meat came out nice & tender (I made sure to pound it thinner) and the sauce was great over rice.

Cardamom Chicken with Salt and Pepper Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
I've never tried Cardamom before and was shocked at the price (I found it anywhere from $8 to $18 per bottle!) but went ahead & tried it for something new. My boyfriend wasn't nuts about it but did like it and wouldn't mind having it again (hey, at least he tried it!), I thought it was delicious!

Ranch-Style Thighs

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
I've made a similar dish that was much better using mayonaise instead of ranch & just coating with seasoned bread crumbs I'd added some parmesan & white pepper to. I threw it in the rotisserie for 30 minues & voila! With the ranch it was a bit lacking, try it with mayo.

Super Crispy Roasted Goose

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
It might be that I just like duck better, the breast was flavorless & the only thing that my honey liked was the skin which was crispy. The stuffing and gravy were good but I'll pass on the goose next year.

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.

Roasted Green Chile Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
You could get away with using only 1lb of the chilies - I didn't care for this dish very much, my honey liked it but he too thought there were too many chilies even for something called green chile stew... I thought it was bland - go figure.

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.

These ROCKED. The flavor was just right, not too sweet and just the right texture. Everyone went back for thirds ~ this is a keeper!

Irish Stew

Good but not spectacular. Lamb is a bit gamey in this recipe but it was good comfort food overall.

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!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
I gave this 5 stars with the following revisions: I doubled the sauce and added 1/4 tsp ground cloves and used fresh grated nutmeg rather than from a bottle, I used 1TBSP Dark brown sugar & 1 TBSP Golden brown sugar (when doubling recipe). I also put it in my le cruset pot & covered with foil for 25 minutes after I browned chops & saute'd the apples then removed foil, added golden brown sugar & pecans & cooked an additional 10 minutes. It smelled like apple pie while baking. I had to add extra salt to balance out the sweetness and then it was perfect! Delicious!

Savory Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I followed directions exactly. My Tony said it was good but not impressive. I have to agree. The marmalade made it a little too sweet for us and it just had no zing. Sorry, this was disappointing.
