Oven Baked Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
I had made this once before following recipe to a T and it turned out great. Today I decided to try it again. I did a couple of changes due to availability of certain items, and a couple of tweaks of my own. I sauteed the veggies in a little bit of butter, but no way near 1/2 c., I think that is excessive. I also added a pinch of the Creole Seasoning Blend (made according to the recipe and I highly recommend you use this rather than store bought) to the sauteeing veggies and it added just the right hint of taste to them. Used 2 cans of diced tomatoes (easier than breaking up whole ones), followed the rest of the recipe. But as far as meats go, I used a rotisserie chicken bought at our grocery's deli, used fully cooked chicken sausage with garlic and herbs (can't find andouille in these parts), 3 large ham steaks, fully cooked already, just sliced them up, and kept the frozen shrimp. I put some of the recipe w/o the shrimp (son-in-law allergic) in a separate casserole dish, and the rest fit into a large roasting pan (an All Clad turkey roasting pan without the rack) However I found out while cooking the roasting pan jambalaya was no where near as hot (temp wise) as the smaller casserole I'm presuming due to the thickness of the pan. It worked better with a tin foil roaster I bought in the grocery store. The rice cooked up beautifully, I did not have a problem with it at all. I did put the shrimp in right at the beginning as they were still partially frozen, they tasted fine, n

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
This was awesome. I have used other chili recipes, but this will become my main one. Left out the sausage (preference), used 3 lbs of ground beef and adjusted the tomatoes and paste and beans accordingly. I used kidney beans and black beans. Left out the bacon (again preference). Used O'Doul's beer as that is all I had, couldn't tell the difference. I eyeballed the spices thought that as written it sounded a little too hot for our taste, so I went easy on the hot sauce and cayenne, and I only used one hot pepper. It was perfect. After about an hour, I found I did need to add a little more cayenne. The taste does get better the longer it simmers. Enjoy!!!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I have to say this is the best lasagna recipe I've ever made. I usually alter this by adding an extra can of crushed tomatoes and tomato paste. also, I add 1/2 red wine, 1/2 water, my preference and it gives it a zip. A little extra of the spices, but not too much. I just throw them in, don't measure. I always make 2 of them and a word to the wise, use one of the large lasagna pans you find in the supermarket, a regular 9x13 won't cut it, it will bubble over. I always put it on tin foil or a cookie sheet to prevent spills, but if i use a large extra deep lasagna pan, no problem!!! Great recipe, thanks so much. also i sometimes make it with 1/2 hot spicy sausage and 1/2 sweet italian sausage, just for a zip! Edit: I've made this dozens of times since my orig. review, and usually double the sauce, saving the extras for our "regular" pasta! Great stuff!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Didn't make this "as is" (I seem to never do!!). Used just minced garlic in a 1/2 can of beer. For the outside, I rubbed the chicken with a little olive oil. Then rubbed on some of Emeril's Essence (recipe found on Foodnetwork, sorry allrecipes... and the result was outstanding. I had a 7-8 pound chicken, cooked it on the grill for 2 hours at a temp of 400, cooked internally to 180. Very good. Thanks!!!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I have simplified this recipe as follows: a couple to three TBSP of olive oil, some herbes de provence (eyeball it) and some salt and pepper. Bake 350 (convection oven) for about an hour give or take. Depends on how crispy you like it. I was also cooking rempels meatloaf and asparagus and garlic (can't remember the exact recipe ) at the same time.... These are the best oven roasted potatoes I've ever eaten,, so good.

Mussels Mariniere

Very good! The only mussels recipe I use. The only thing I didn't have was the bay leaf! I think the thyme was the key ingredient!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
My husband and I cook salmon alot during the warm months on the grill, but I was looking for a different recipe...and voila!! This was it. I wasn't sure of the soy sauce in the recipe and how it would compliment the fish, but I tried this, just eyeballing the ingredients (I hardly ever measure anymore!!) and used every ingredient listed. I had to bake it about 5 - 8 minutes longer than stated, but that was the only difference. We both said it was even better than the recipe we use to cook it on the grill. This will become our main salmon recipe from here on in. Thanks for a great tasting recipe!!

Busy Day Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
used minced garlic instead of powder; used white wine instead of water. Mixed all together (sauce ingredients) and poured over chopped asparagus in a baking dish. Saved some sauce to place over the chicken, then added the dry soup. Was good, but asparagus not cooked well even after 1 1/2 hours. Will try this with green beans next time. White wine was definitely the key addition here!!

Pork Chops Deluxe

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
I did change around the recipe based on other's reviews.....I omitted the mushrooms, added white wine instead of the water to scrape up the brown bits, it gave it more flavor... Added more onion, seasoned the chops with the salt before browning... I didn't have dijon mustard, but spicy brown mustard which was just as good... Added a touch more white wine to the cooking...everyone thought it was good, but son-in-law thought it was so-so, he's very picky.... But it was excellent in all the rest of our opinions.. Thanks for a great recipe!!!!

Wild Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
WOW this is scrumptious, according to my DH. He LOVED it!!!! I added 2 packages of rice to it, as other other readers suggested, and left out the almonds. but other than that, it is great. I cooked it for 1 1/2 hours and it was perfect!!! Soooo good... thanks for the recipe... Updated 3/31/08, just to add, this was salty, probably too much so, but I think that could be taken care of by adding just one of the packets of the seasoning mixes that comes with the rice, instead of adding two. Just a thought - I will do that next time I make this, and there WILL be a next time!!!

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
I haven't made this version with the ketchup, but make my own fried eggs to medium doneness, throw on a slice of American cheese to the cooked egg; use MW bacon (4 slices to 2 sandwiches) and toast English Muffins (whole grain), butter them and assemble. Sooo much better than McD's bacon egg and cheese sandwiches, and quick and easy.

Marinade for Steak I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
Awesome marinade for our ribeyes that we cooked on the grill. I didn't change a single ingredient. I only marinated them for about an hour and a half, next time I plan to try it overnight to see how they come out. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

Foil Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
These were very good, moist and flavorful. Whole family said they were the best baked potato I had ever made. The only thing I did was leave off the salt, as I usually don't cook with it anyway. I put about one tsp of butter between the two halves of potatoe and sprinkled with garlic powder. 40 min was plenty of time, but I do have a convection oven, so I don't know if that makes a difference. They taste great reheated too!! :)

American Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
I have made my own version of shepherds pie for years. I did like the idea of this recipe, but didn't have the vegetable soup. So I used cream of mushroom. Also, I used ground moose meat for this shepherds pie - delicious, and much less greasy. I also added a can of corn to the meat mixture - family preference. Omitted the cheese as the family doesn't like it.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Very good. I think the 4 c. of sugar would have made this a little too sweet. I used only 3 and it was perfect and made plenty for my purpose (Best Carrot Cake Ever, also from this site - I made muffins and there was PLENTY of frosting with a bit of leftover!!!!!) I added for extra flavor 1/8 tsp of allspice to the frosting and it gave the frosting such a nice taste to go along with the muffins. Thanks for a great recipe!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
I followed this recipe to the letter and it turned out fantastic. I had a carrot cake recipe (which I lost) that the family always loved, but they like this one better, this is not as oily as my last one. Instead of making a cake with this recipe. I made muffins - baked @ 325 in my convection oven for 23 minutes. It made about 30 muffins and they were awesome with the cream cheese frosting also from this site.

Grilled Swordfish with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
This is our family's favorite swordfish recipe, but you do have to marinate longer than what recipe calls for to get the flavor of the marinade. Excellent recipe!!!
