Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Excellent! Using other reviewers suggestions, I added to olive oil and herbs some dijon mustard, worcestershire and some lemon juice. I used all fresh herbs. I marinated the potatoes and chicken for an hour. I set the potatoes in for 30 minutes and added the chicken for 30 more. I'll drain the marinade at about the halfway point for the potatoes next time I make this, so that they crisp up a bit better. The flavor was a hit with my family!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
Followed MegaG's suggestions. I used a Butt Roast, slow-cooked on low for 6-7 hours, shredded and added BBQ Sauce then slow-cooked for another hour. Served on toaster Kaiser rolls with coleslaw. Mmmmm! Very tasty!

Apple Cider Sauce and Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
Fantastic -- my family loved it! I didn't have seasoning salt, so I used a celery salt instead. I couldn't find apple cider concentrate, so I used regular apple juice concentrate, and added some cinnamon and grated nutmeg. I also cooked it entirely on the stovetop. I added the celery salt, pepper, garlic powder and poultry seasoning to some flour in a large zip-top bag, threw in some pork sirloin chops and coated them with the mixture. (The flour probably helped my sauce thicken.) I browned the chops, set them aside, lowered the heat a bit and added thinly sliced onions to the pan. Once the onions were carmelized, I threw in the apple juice concentrate, cinnamon and grated nutmeg to taste, the worcestershire and the sherry and stirred it all. I added the chops back in, covered and simmered for about 25 minutes. When I removed the chops I let the sauce continue to simmer for only a minute or two, that was all that was needed for it to thicken up. This was a big hit!

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Very delicious. I used a 5 pound bottom round roast, one full can of low-sodium beef broth in place of the 1 cup water, the 3 packets italian dressing mix, the jar of pepperoncinis. I lightly misted steak rolls with olive oil and seasoned very lightly with garlic powder and celery salt (I also tried without, and much prefer it with the celery salt, trust me on this). Sprinkled on some shredded provolone and mozzarella cheeses and toasted. Served with some mild horseradish sauce. Mmmm. Leftovers were perhaps even better. My family loves this!

Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Very delicious and couldn't be easier! My family loves this dish. I serve it with a simple rice pilaf and a salad with an orange vinaigrette.

Strawberry Pineapple Chicken Bites

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
So easy and very delicious - one of my family's favorites! I cut down a little on the strawberry preserves so that it is not too sweet, and my family and I like it best when I go heavy on coarse pepper. I serve it with a favorite rice dish for a main dish, and always double the chicken because the leftovers are great, too.

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
I make this all the time. I use Merry Widow's modifications (cut water, sugar, cornstarch, halve the oil, up soy to 4TBSP) and marinate for about 3 hours. I grill it with my stovetop cast iron grill pan. It is the only way my husband wants me to make pork chops anymore.

Lamb Feta Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
This was fantastic and I cannot wait to make it again. I would add more sauce next time. Based on previous reviews, I used more garlic and some red pepper flakes. I browned the lamb, then the onions and garlic, and added the spices at the end. I blanched the bell peppers for about 5 minutes and added some of the sauce to the meat mixture before stuffing my red peppers. That's why I wish I'd had another jar. I just used jarred Prego -- I think it was Roasted red pepper & garlic or something. These were the best stuffed peppers I've ever tasted. My husband devoured them!

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Excellent. Best sausage and peppers we've ever had. The sausage is so tender. Thicker slices works best with the vegetables -- the first time (of many) that I made this, I chopped the vegetables too thin and I might as well have pureed them. With thicker strips they were still strips.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I really loved this recipe. It's so easy and elegant, my favorite combination! Sooooo delicious! I also added balsamic vinegar and added butter to thicken the sauce and make it glossy and lovely.

Italian Style Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
Delicious and different! I made this because I didn't want to have to live up to a family member's traditional style chili that we all rave about. I figured this would be a great compromise. I've made this a few times now. My husband requests it often. I usually make a double batch, but I use half ground beef & half sweet Italian sausage. I use fresh mushrooms, and add extra, because the mushrooms are really stand-out in this recipe. I've used 1 can kidney and 1 can cannellini beans, but I think I'm switching to all cannellini, because they really are terrific with these flavors. Now my family thinks of this as MY chili and it's not just the other family member whose praises are sung!

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
Very good! I've made this several times now, because my husband requests it a lot. The first time I made as written. The next time I omitted the celery and onion as another reviewer suggested, and it's true -- it doesn't affect the flavor all that much and eliminates straining the vegetables out. Very good, great easy meal.

Garlic Asparagus with Lime

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
This was a nice new way to prepare asparagus. It's the perfect time of year and we picked up the most wonderful thin baby stalks that cooked quite nicely. If they were thicker I would have steamed them briefly in the microwave to get the cooking started, but it wasn't necessary the night I prepared them. They were the perfect accompaniament to thinly sliced flank steak with a rub made from chili/lime/brown sugar and paprika and the orange romaine salad from this site. A perfect spring meal!

Orange Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
This was delicious and very light and refreshing. Maybe a bit too light in flavor. We tripled the green onion to really have the flavor come out, otherwise it would have been a bit bland. But with the additional green onion it was wonderful. We have salad every night with dinner, and this will make a nice addition to our repertoire, especially during the spring and summer months. Edited to add: We've since had this several times in the last month. I still recommend lots of green onion. I've started adding a couple TBSP of orange juice and some orange zest to really bring out the flavor of the dressing. With these changes I'd bump up my rating from a 4 to a 5. We also toss on some flavored almond slivers to complete the salad. Yummm!

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
This dish was wonderful, and so easy to prepare. I made it almost exact per the recipe. The only changes I made were I didn't add the last bit of oil when adding the tomatoes and cooked onions and everything back into the pan, and I used a little more balsamic vinegar, maybe another tablespoon or two. My family loved it. I have one pork chop and toppings leftover from last night hidden away for lunch today. I've been thinking about it all morning! I'm sure I'll be making this often.

Garlic-Lime Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
I'm giving this four stars because it didn't quite live up to my expectations given the previous reviews. I prepared it exactly as written. I made it on the same night I made Rich Mexican Corn on this site. The corn dish way outshone and overpowered everything served with it, including this dish. I was disappointed that night and my husband was even less thrilled. However, I heated a couple leftover chops for lunch the next day and served with some salsa on top and they were delicious. I will make again -- without the incredible but overpowering corn dish I paired it with the first time -- and if it lives up to the reviews as I originally expected, then I will revise my review and bump it up to 5 full stars.

Rich Mexican Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This was the star of our dinner and really outshone what was probably a really great maindish. I made it exactly as written, with the exception of using 1 can of jalapenos instead of the fresh as my grocer was out. Whew! One whole can may have been much as it was REALLY REALLY REALLY spicy. But the sweetness of the corn and red pepper was so refreshing in contrast. I will definitely make this again and will probably use half a can of jalapenos. Or rather, I'll just double the recipe except for the jalapenos, because my family could have eaten plenty more of this! Mmmmmmmmmm! One of the most surprising and tastiest side dishes I've ever had. Definitely too rich for every day, but it will make any occasional dinner special!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
I followed Shannon's suggestion and added bread crumbs (I used roasted garlic, all I had on hand), paprika, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. I also sprinkled the filets with Old Bay on each side as suggested. This was one of the best fish dishes I have ever had, let alone prepared myself. I don't have very many fish dishes in my repertoire that I feel comfortable with, but this was so easy and as long as you watch your times for the broiler, a no-fail dish. This will definitely be added to our regular rotation. I can't wait to make it again!

Island Kielbasa in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This was terrific. I used a 3 lb package of kielbasa, but otherwise kept the ingredient amounts the same. I waited until the last 1/2 hour to add the pineapple as suggested. My husband and kids devoured this. I thought I was making enough to have plenty of leftovers the next day for lunch, but my 11 year old picked out the few remaining pieces of meat leaving only the rice and sauce. I can't wait to make it again, only next time I'll probably use at least 4 lbs of kielbasa.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
My husband called this a "weekly winner" and said he can't wait until I make it again. I won't mind either, considering how easy it was to make. I dislike pounding chicken, so I used chicken tenderloin instead and skipped that step. I threw in some Italian seasoning with the flour mixture, some garlic when I threw the chicken in the pan, and I doubled the sauce. Next time I will at double the mushrooms as well. My husband went back for more and there are no leftovers. This was great, especially the sauce. Mmmmm.
