I had high hopes when I tried this recipe for something different. It was truly different alright. I followed the recipe exactly....

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I was unsure about the Parmesan flavor being in this but nothing ventured nothing gained. This was surely worth the risk. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. Not only that but it was a nice quick and simple meal to make. Best part was, I had everything I needed in my cabinet and fridge already so I didn't need to even run to the store. That don't happen often. Loved it!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! This has to be one of the best chicken recipes we've had in a very long time! We actually dipped ours in lemon juice and it was better yet! Thanks for the recipe!

Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Excellent! Anyone who gives this a review of less than 5 stars must have the pallet of a cow's back side. There was so much flavor and you can taste them all. It seemed that when one flavor ended the next one would pop up. I didn't change anything except I had some fresh basil on hand so I used it. Only other thing I did was after I heated the shrimp in the oil I had to drain the excess liquid before I combined it with the rest of the stuff. The shrimp I used were unfortunately previously frozen so they held some water. Other than that, this is an excellent, smashing recipe. Thank you very much for sharing!

Greek Saganaki

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
I haven't had this stuff in years! We used to go to a Greek resteraunt long ago and get this all the time. Only difference was that they would come to the the table, pour Burbon on it, light it on fire and yell "WHOOMPAA!" They would squeeze the lemon over it to put the fire out. This recipe is exactly how I remember it tasting and every bit as good. I did not use the tomato at all because it just didn't seem to add anything more than a garnish. I served mine similar to the resteraunt minus the screaming and was extremely happy with the result. I am also shocked with how easy this is to make. If I would have known, I would have been making it for eons. However, I will now make it frequently to make up for lost time. Thank you for the recipe!

Asian-Style Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
It seemed it was missing something. After reading all the reviews I did as another member had suggested and drizzled honey over it and BAM! that was the flavor this needed. Sounded strange enough to try and I'm glad I did. The honey worked the sesame seeds too. Will make again this way.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
This recipe has been in my box for over two years, I finally made it. I have to say that when I tasted it early in the prep process I was less than thrilled. I felt as though it was a mistake making this. The finished product proved that wrong. All I can say is Wow! I did tweak it to my taste just a bit. First I more than doubled almost tripled the amount of water in it because the flavor was just so strong. I also added a few stalks of celery and two medium size onions. Other than that I stuck to the recipe. Next time I will not add ANY salt due to the content of salt in the sausage and beef broth. The spinach really brought the flavor home for me. The soup wouldn't be the same without it. This is for sure a keeper and this will be in a ton of people's email inbox tomorrow morning.

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
Followed recipe to the exact letter. They were so dry. They were very bland too. won't be making these again. I'll stick to the premade dough in the tube.

Skin-on Savory Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
For mashed potatoes, not bad at all. I did leave out the sour cream as I'm not a big fan. I also used Idaho potatoes.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
All I can say is WOW, I'm actually rating this one before it's even done cooking! It's been in the slow cooker for a few hours now. The smell is alone is making us go crazy. I have been snacking on it here and there to taste the celery and the gravy. I actually had to add more celery to so there would be some left in there by dinner time. I also added a jar of sliced mushrooms to the it as well. Instead of packaged gravy I made my own from bouillon cubes. I added a parsnip I had in the fridge and a few onions quartered. I will be making some fresh mashed potatoes to use the extra gravy on for sure. If I have any issues with this recipe after dinner tonight I will edit the review to reflect it but from what I can tell this one is a sure winner and will only deserve more praise.

Cranberry BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
The smell alone while this was in the oven should be an air freshener. 90 mins don't seem like a long time but when it smells that good it seems like eons. This was awesome chicken! We had it two days in a row and wasted nothing! Even my picky 5 year old thought it was the greatest chicken he ever had. The only chicken he liked prior to this was in nugget form. I followed the recipe exactly as stated. As I said, it smelled great, looked pretty and tasted wonderful. Never thought of using cranberries for anything but cranberry sauce. Served it with corn bread muffins and buttered asparagus. This will be the way I bake chicken from now on. I am really thinking about trying the sauce on ribs. YUMMY!

Oxtail Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2006
This is a so so recipe at best. Oxtail soup is also called poor man's soup. In the old days because it was made from whatever you had available. Now it's poor man's soup because of what oxtails now cost. Anyway, I think this soup should never be made without parsnips first & foremost. I usually use whole peeled tomatoes & squeeze them into the soup. I would also add some zuchinni but add it last or it will cook away, a can of tomato sauce, ketchup & about a 1/2 cup of sugar. Lastly I would serve it will bow tie noodles. Also, the cabbage is optional. If you really like veggies you can add a bag of frozen soup veggies as well. Cucumbers can only make this taste totally disgusting and disturbing, not sure what the author was thinking about by adding cucumbers and that is the reason for the low rating. The other thing, if your going to use the oxtails and the stew meat there is no reason to add all those beef bouillon cubes. Oxtails should be browned prior to just plopping them into the pot of water. It helps to get rid of some of the fat. If you still feel the soup has too much fat on it, before serving it put it into the fridge for until it is cold. The fat will harden and turn white on the top of the soup and you can merely remove it. Before adding the veggies, the meat should be boiled for at least 45 mins to an hour and the scum removed from the top. This creates your beef broth. I feel as though I just rewrote this recipe, wasn't my intention but I think it needed help

Cream of Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2005
Wow! Easy and by far the best homemade tomato soup I have ever had. I did use garden tomatoes though. I used 3lbs of fresh tomatoes, cored, peeled and then I let them run in the food processor on high for 4 minutes. I used that instead of juice. It had a few seeds that didn't get pulverized but it certainly didn't hurt the soup at all. Also, I added about 1/4 cup of fresh basil chopped up at the point I added the tomato and I let that cook in with it and I used a pinch of baking soda and a tablespoon of sugar to help reduce the acid in the soup. I didn't do it this time but you can also substitute whipping cream for the milk to make it a little more rich. All I can say is awesome Julie! A frozen pizza darn near takes longer to cook than this.

Stuffed Pepper Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
Awesome Awesome Awesome!! This is the best soup ever! Well I did do some things different though. I added 2 onions 1 clove of garlic 4 green peppers. 1/2 cup ketchup 2 tbsp. worchestershire 1 cup water I reduced to 1 cup of rice Also, instead of a can of chopped tomatoes I picked 6 fresh from the garded blanched them and scrunched them into the mixture. I know these seem like alot of changes but they are all pretty small after all. I only changed it to reflect the way I actually make stuffed peppers. Again, this stuff is really awesome!

Cream of Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2005
Hmm..well it wasn't great but it wasn't bad either. However, after trying it and looking at others reviews I tried what "Razhe" another reviewer had suggested by using a bit of red pepper and onions sauteed. That was the ticket, it really brought this recipe home. I give Joyce 4 stars but Razhe 5 stars for perfecting it.

White-Hot Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
Now this stuff is awesome! I have always been a white chocolate fan. I also love cayenne pepper. I never would have dreamed of ever having the two together. I can't say enough good about it. Best hot chocolate I ever had! Beware though! Do not drink too much! This will do to you the same as eating too much candy will do to you. You stomach will not feel well, trust me. You can have too much of a good thing. Still 5 stars for sure! Emailing this one all over the place!

Thin Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
Maybe I expected too much because of the prior reviews but I thought the texture just was too chewy, they were too minty and the chocolate was too sticky. The mint wasn't quite the right flavor or same flavor of mint that the Girl Scouts seem to use. These may be "Thin Mint Cookies" but they certainly aren't close to the Girl Scouts version. I followed the recipe to the letter. Doubt I will ever make these again but may try to see about fixing it somehow.

Tomato Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2005
Hmmm...Well I'm not sure what exactly happened but the day I made this it wasn't too bad. I thought it could have been a bit thicker but it had a nice flavor. The strange thing is, I had the leftovers the next day and it was absolutely disgusting. I don't exactly know what happened in that fridge overnight but something scientific certainly went on with this tomato cocktail. I'm at a loss. Yes, it was refrigerated promptly and in a sealed container in a perfectly working fridge. I guess from now on I will wait a day before I do reviews as I did with this because I guess you just never know. Sorry but it would have gotten a better rating on the first day.

Jalapeno Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
Usually when the first word of a recipe is an ingredient it would seem that it would be the most distinctive flavor in the recipe. To me this was "cinnamon chicken". However it was good but next time I will read the reviews first. If I did I would have halved the cinnamon and probably added at least 5 jalapeno peppers. It would also be much better if it the skin was removed from the chicken first to really bring out the flavor. I will make it again but I will do the above changes next time and use boneless skinless chicken breasts. I give it 4 stars and not 3 because it wasn't a bad combination of ingredients just needed some tweeks.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Tasty and fairly quick. Wife really loves it. I know we sometimes use grilled chicken breasts instead. It has found it's way into our meal rotation.
