Eggplant Rollatini

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
This was great. I don't see the point though in rolling up -- unless you are having company or a nice dinner, and then it's a great touch. Otherwise, save yourself some time on a weeknight dinner and do as others have suggested and layer. I followed some other hints and sweated the eggplant and also broiled the breaded slices to avoid frying them. I did this for five mintues per side. Then I layered this way in a glass baking dish: eggplant, ricotta, spinach (another addition that caught my eye in someone else's review), prosciutto, tomato sauce, and mozarella cheese. Baked at 350 for about 20 minutes or so, until the cheese was melted and starting to brown. We loved this and will make it again.

Cilantro and Garlic Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
You do NOT have to deep fry these! Slice your potatoes very thin and sautee in a pan with some olive oil. We didn't have lemon juice on hand so we left it out, but these were AWESOME! I'm rating it a four only because I changed the cooking method.

Squash Casserole II

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
My family and I have been making this exact recipe for years at Thanksgiving, so I know it is amazing! This recipe is the reason I don't like to try other squash casseroles -- honestly, the other ones I have tried NEVER stack up! Things I do differently: I don't peel or seed my squash. I cut the squash instead into about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick slices before boiling, and I do not mash them after boiling -- I just put the slices in the casserole. It tastes delicious this way, although I imagine mashing is good for tricking picky eaters. Another good tip -- you can swap out yellow squash for zucchini in this recipe, or do half and half for some variety and color -- the taste is about the same. Delicious!

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
I thought these were pretty good. In our condo building we can't grill out, so we were looking for a baked ribs recipe. I think this is as good as any without making your own sauce (convenience can be a huge plus!) The meat didn't fall off the bone and required a knife to remove it, but it was still really good.

G's Flank Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
This was by far the best flank steak marinade I've ever had. The steak was so tender and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as is. We used the leftovers on a pizza with tomato and onion and it was delicious.

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
This was great. I made exactly as described in the recipe. I think this would be good without cheese, too. We served over whole grain couscous.

Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
This was really good. I changed the recipe a bit, but I'm still rating it five stars because it was so awesome. I eyeballed almost all the ingredients and amounts. Used three cups of water. Only cooked shrimp 'til they were cooked -- this will only take literally a couple minutes if you've got a good simmer going before you add them -- just make sure they're opaque. I added some Cajun-spiced sausage -- yum. Added some "random" spices. Also didn't put green onions in because I didn't want to buy them and have a bunch leftover that I wouldn't use in something else. Delicious!

Roasted Potato Cauliflower Pasta

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
This was really good. I would probably not use quite so much olive oil next time -- just a taaad less. I only made the cauliflower and potato portion of this, and didn't have onion or rosemary, so it was modified slightly out of necessity. But I would definitely recommend.

Perfectly Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
This was really good. I used an organic Italian dressing instead of Caesar, just due to personal preference. Otherwise pretty much followed the recipe to a T. Thanks for sharing!

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
This was really good. Used chicken breasts only and cut into tender-sized pieces. Used some alternate cooking times. Brushed on mayo so as to use very little, just enough to let bread crumbs stick. Flipped halfway through cooking time. Very yummy!

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was really good. I read some other reviewers' comments and included some garlic at the end of sauteeing the mushrooms and onions, and also added some worcestershire sauce while cooking the ground beef. I eyeballed the flour and beef broth amounts, and added more of both as I felt was needed. I used low fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream. The sauce had a nice, thick consistency and was really yummy.

Stuffed Eggplant with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
This was pretty good. I really enjoyed the 'stuffing' part -- the shell of the eggplant wasn't very good to me, but maybe I don't like eggplant as much as I thought. I added mushrooms, onion, and red pepper to the stuffing mixture, and used a little less bread crumbs. That part was really good.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I made this for dinner (and dinners all week!) last night, and I couldn't think of a reason to rate it less than five stars. Here are some things I did a tiny bit differently: -A tiny bit of EVOO (instead of Canola) -I bought Habanero and Green chile turkey sausage -Did not use ham -Used fresh roma tomatoes from a friend's garden, instead of canned (tried to reserve as much juice as possible) -Added a diced, seeded habanero and red chile pepper (it actually didn't end up too spicy, although my nose was running a bit!) The stew was so yummy, and so colorful and pretty to look at! I noticed someone had trouble with the sweet potatoes softening fast enough -- just make sure you dice everything in small, bite-sized pieces and you won't have a problem with that. This was SO GOOD. One of the all-time best recipes I've made from this site.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
This was REALLY easy to make and really yummy. I'd never made a pie before and it was so easy. The pre-made pie crusts really help.

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
Maybe I ruined the recipe by adding an extra jalapeno and another fresh hot pepper from my friend's garden, but it was way too spicy and strange-tasting, and I love spicy food. No one really got into it at our fourth of July get together. I think it might have been better, however, on fish or chicken than with chips. (And really it's my fault for making it too spicy.)

Bacon-Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
This was pretty good. I don't LOVE bacon so it wasn't my thing (four strips may be a little much). However some other people at our fourth of July get together thought they were great, so if you love the ingredients I say it's worth a shot. I used spicy mustard instead of honey, based on what I had, and added green onions because I had some leftover from another recipe. Overall just okay. Too bacon-y for me.

Fiesta Pinwheels

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
I made these for a baby shower we had for someone at work. They were a big hit! My boss had some and told me later "whoever made those cheese roll-up things did a great job!" I used diced red pepper instead of green onion because the onions at the store were awful looking. Delicious!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
This was pretty good. I would add sea salt next time. I'm not normally a big salt person, but this was almost too 'simple' of a taste for me.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
These were really good. I forgot to put the cheddar cheese in, but still delicious. I do think that the amount of cream cheese was too much for four large tortillas -- I would have preferred it spread a little more thinly on maybe five.
