Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2006
This was very good and a nice change of pace from the usual sweet potato recipe. I too was confused by the directions v.s. ingredients so I just sliced the potatoes in half lengthwise and baked them that way. Mother-in-law and I were the only ones who ate these but she liked it too. I think next time I might try brushing the potatoes with an infusion of olive oil and orange juice concentrate just for some extra flavor, and put the spices on top of that. The spices were nice and really good the next day. This is a keeper! Thanks!

Breaded Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
I use this recipe as a good chicken standby. I use boneless skinless breasts and pound them out to make them flatter, more like chicken picatta would be. They cook more evenly and tender that way. The flavor blend in this recipe is excellent even for people who don't like curry - you wouldn't know it's in there, but the flavor is missing something without it. We serve this on top of some angel hair pasta that we've added a drizzle of olive oil and garlic powder to. We serve it also with hot steamed broccoli. It's wonderful and turns out perfect every time. Great for company because it's easy and stress free, yet pretty and very tasty!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2006
230 Reviewers couldn't be wrong on this. I had every single ingredient in my kitchen, I had frozen mahi mahi filets and thawed them. I had some left over cooked jasmine rice and this fish dish was absolutely perfect over the rice. The glaze was awesome! This was a restaurant quality mahi recipe, husband agreed and my boss wants the recipe. Thanks!

Coconut Tilapia with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
I used the sweetened flaked coconut, made my own creole seasoning from a recipe on the net, used apricot preserves because that's what I had on hand,and followed Diane T's recipe exactly except I fried in Enova oil instead of Canola. This was awesome! Even with the sweetened coconut, the horseradish and spicy mustard in the dipping sauce balance it out nicely. It was crispy, tasty, and perfect with the dipping sauce. Served with Jasmine rice and a nice white wine it made a very easy and excellent light dinner! I've been looking for another different tilapia recipe and THIS is it. Husband loved it!

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
This was excellent! I took others' advise and tripled the sauce, it cookes down quickly so I'm glad I did this. I paired this with the Chicken Lo Mein submitted by Michelle on this site and substituted some of the chicken in that with shrimp. These dishes went great together. It was Asian night at our house. Amber's Sesame Chicken was easy to prepare and the flavor was excellent and just as good as leftovers. I served it with the lo mean and some white rice. YUM!

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
I served this with Amber's Sesame Chicken also on this site and just as yummy. I made a slight change because of this pairing. Instead of 5 chicken breasts I used one chicken breast and added shrimp. I also didn't have any shiitake mushrooms so I skipped that part. Like others, I thought there might be too much liquid in the recipe but I left it as is anyway and am very glad I did. The noodles and meat soak up some of that liquid and it keeps the noodles from drying out if you have leftovers the next day. The leftovers, by the way, my husband and I both agree are wonderful the next day. All the flavors seem to intensify and come together. This was restaurant quality!

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
I made this for Superbowl Sunday in a Rye bread bowl (flavor combination was excellent). I used a whole 10 oz. package of frozen spinach instead of a half because it seemed to mayonaisey with just a half a package and spinach is good for you anyway. This was the BEST spinach dip. There was not even a crumb left on the plate, in fact, I think one of our guests LICKED the plate but never admitted to it.

New Year's Day Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I made this experimentally on New Year's Eve. I used my husband and one of our friends as guinea pigs. I used low sodium chicken broth in place of the water and filled the pot to cover the peas plus one inch above them, I used 3-4 crushed garlic cloves instead of powder, and I used three cans (drained) of black-eyed peas instead of dry but did not change the cooking time. I made corn bread to go with this. You can use a slotted spoon if you want more of a pea side dish or use a ladel and ladel the "soup" over your corn bread in a bowl. This was absolutely fantastic either way you serve it! Husband and friend gave rave reviews and insisted I serve the leftovers on New Year's Day. I had quite a bit left over and since today is New Year's day, we'll have it again. It's probably better the day after making it once the flavors really set in. We're having people over for dinner and a football game so this will be GREAT! Thanks Roxanna!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2005
Just look at the number of people who rated/reviewed this recipe. That alone should tell you something. This is one of the easiest, tastiest fish dishes I've ever had. It's great on top of some salad greens, on rice, or just by itself. It's great after work when I don't have a lot of time and it uses ingredients commonly found in the kitchen so there are no last minute special trips to the store. Great stuff! I'm having it tonight!

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
This is about the only salmon recipe that we ever really use. It's fantastic. In fact, I mix the seasoning together in a double batch and keep it in a container in my spice cabinet. You can use it on chicken or steak too. It's just better than any prepared cajun spice from the store. You can lay it on lightly or heavily depending on your taste or mood. You can sprinkle it in soups and stews or chili. But it's especially good on salmon cooked exacly as this recipe says.

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
This was very dry and bland. It was crunchy, but zero flavor. I would add different spices or seasoning, or something to provide a little moisture. With the corn meal in there, I would add maybe some hot sauce or mexican type seasonings, maybe even a packet of taco or fajita seasoning to the dry mix and serve it on top of a pico de gallo with black beans mixed in it. Or maybe use the dry mix but add Old Bay seasoning to it and have it with tartar sauce. It needs something.

Honey Lime Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
My husband and I LOVED these wings. The tang and sweetness of them was just right for a summer wing dish. And they look pretty too. We are making them again tonight and have shared them with friends who've asked for the recipe. Our sons still prefer the buffalo variety, but that's only because they like blue cheese dressing all over them.

Thai-Style Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
This is one of our favorite tilapia recipes. It's easy, fast and I served it with Thai peanut noodles and a spring mix of greens with an oriental salad dressing. It was delish!

Pork Chops with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
This is fantastic! I served it atop whole wheat spaghetti and it got rave reviews! This is another one that my husband brings to work for lunch the next day and has several interested parties at his lunch table. He brought some in the next time for everyone to try. They think we are gormet cooks now!

Chutney Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
This was awesome! I used only 5 thighs and 1 skinless/bonelss breast. I removed the skin from one of the thighs. I still skimmed off some of the fat when it was done. I put the smaller portion in a smaller casserole dish and it made a saucier recipe. I served it with Near East Mediterranean Curry Couscous and the combination of the flavors of chutney, onion soup mix and couscous were incredible. My husband brought some to work to share with a co-worker who is always interested in the food my husband brings from home. He loved it too! This is an easy keeper!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2005
This is a keeper! Yes, it was a little soupy and I drained my canned tomatoes but I think it's the cocoa nut milk that makes it soupy but Jasmine rice soaks it all up. YUM! I also used a hot curry powder because we like it spicy. This is one that we opened the windows and doors for so that we could make our neighbors jealous! I have leftovers for lunch today! It's delicious!

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2005
This is absolutely the best pot roast we've ever had. I used chuck pot roast and followed the recipe but changing the vermouth to a dry white wine because that's what I had available. This makes the most delicious gravy we've ever had with a pot roast. I make redskin mashed potatoes to go with this and it is a hit every time. I made it twice in two weeks because it was so good. Leftovers don't stick around long with this one!

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2005
We've made this recipe several times with great success. Lately I've taken to pounding out the chicken breasts to flatten them out just a bit and render them a little more tender. It works. The flavors in this recipe go with so many other things like citrus salads, couscous, rice. Sometimes for a little extra kick we double the lime juice, it's great. Our whole family loves this, guests have loved it, it's a hit.
