Roasted Cajun Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I used Russet potatoes instead of red and added an extra clove of garlic. These were SO GOOD! I don't know if I didn't use the full amount of potatoes, but these were perfectly spiced. I suggest others who said it didn't have enough flavor to double the spices or use less potatoes. These were great with a little bit of sour cream on the side! Oh, and I only used a tablespoon of oil. Perfect!

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
This was an excellent sauce, but it really makes a lot! I ended up with more sauce than I needed for a lot of noodles. Next time I'll make it smaller or use more noodles for leftovers. I tossed the sauce with sauteed fresh veggies like onions and peppers. The hot sauce you use makes a difference too. I used Dave's Insanity Sauce, and this was so spicy! So be aware of the hot sauce you use and how much, if you don't like it spicy!

Fatoosh

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
The dressing made the salad, and would make any salad great. I went to three stores yesterday to find the sumac, and not a one had it--so be forewarned! Now I'm tempted to order it online, because I thought for sure the specialty ethnic stores I went to would have it. Anyway, it was great without the sumac but I know it would be better with it. I made the dressing the night before the let the flavors develop. So good!

Texas Caviar I

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
Make this recipe even better by doing the following: Drain the "caviar" mixture before serving. Spread an 8 ounce box of cream cheese on a plate, and gently layer the caviar on top of it. People will eat this up and the cream cheese also mellows a little of the spice even if you go a little crazy with the jalapeno!

Dijon Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I made these with beer instead of apple juice. How many people have apple juice on hand if they don't have kids? It turned out good regardless.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
I doubled this recipe and put about three pounds in each slow cooker. I used someone else's suggestion, and put a bottle of beer in each crock pot. One I did a Black Butte Porter and the other Bud Light. I used two different types of barbecue sauce too, one was Sweet Baby Ray's and the other was a Honey BBQ from Kraft. Both turned out great, but I was concerned they were a bit overcooked. Make sure not to overcook the pork!

Melon Trio with Sherry and Mint

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
I scaled this for 30 and we had it at a work party. I could hardly taste the sherry or mint, so I would use more next time!

Apricot-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
This was pretty good as a sauce, but I prepared it with lamp chops instead. I served the chops over rice, and the sauce was scooped out of the pan to coat the rice and chops.

Shish Tawook Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
I made this almost to the letter except I didn't use Allspice because I didn't have any and I used fat free sour cream instead of the yogurt. Oh, and I added 1/4 teaspoon of paprika to the dipping sauce (as my coworker suggested!) and it turned out great! Next time I make this I will make the dipping sauce when I make the marinade for the chicken so it has more time to develop. It smelled so good cooking and there wasn't a single bite of chicken left! I will also try this with lamb!

Herbed Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
This was a great and quick dish for dinner. I used Muenster cheese with the cheddar, and it smelled so good while it was in the oven. The only thing I missed from my regular macaroni recipe was diced onions. I think I'll add them next time and it'll be even better.

Spinach Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This was extremely easy and tasted great! I always use uncooked manicotti and it's so easy and faster too.

Manicotti with Spicy Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This manicotti was great! Everyone who ate it thought I had bought pre-stuffed manicotti shells! Also, I always fill the shells uncooked. It's so much easier and faster too!

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
These were the first appetizer to disapear at my friend's wedding! I marinated the mozzerella and tomatoes in the sauce, assembled them and served them on a large platter. I will make these again, so easy!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
I made these last night, and served them over a green salad with lettuce, tomato, hard-boiled egg, onion and pine nuts. The asparagus went great with it, I just layed them on the top of the salad.

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
This gave me the idea to mix two different recipes on this site. Instead of cola I used root beer and added 1/2 a teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder and chopped onions. The recipe turned out to be 5 stars, but I changed it so much I feel bad rating this one 5 stars.

Mexican Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
I too, think this probably would have been better in the slow cooker adding the rice an hour before it was done. I just don't think the pork was very flavorful. I would also add either more chilies or maybe jalepenos to the mix too!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
This was very good, but was a little on the dry side for me. I added some more lemon juice (about 1 Tbls.) and kept adding the reserved juice from the garbanzo beans I set aside to get it to the right consistency. I added extra garlic too!

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
This is a great recipe and so easy! I also made the sauce and let that cook in a slow cooker about an hour before I added the kielbasa. Keep it on warm and be careful not to overcook the kielbasa!

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
Excellent. I turned this into "Chocolate Rum Cake" by using chocolate cake mix and used rum from Costa Rica. It was SO good at the bridal shower I hosted yesterday. I made it the night before so it would have more flavor. Let me tell you, the piece I had for breakfast this morning was excellent!

Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
Holy mother of god this is hot if you prepare it as-is. I used two packages of cream cheese instead of one, and only two tablespoons of hot sauce and it was pretty spicy! I think it also depends on what kind of hot sauce you use.
