Perfect Ten Baked Cod

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2014
Cooked this for dinner last night and it was just okay to me. Took others suggestions and omitted the white wine. The dish wasn't bad but wasn't all that it was cracked up to be, either. Just my opinion. My four year old didn't like this. My husband said it was "good" but I could tell he wasn't crazy about it. Probably won't be making this version again.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
I took the suggestions of other reviewers and used a packet of taco seasoning. The taste of the meat mixture was okay but, overall, I didn't like it. The sour cream separated because it was heated, and I didn't like the consistency of the "broken" chips. They almost had a chewy, stale taste. A lot of the chips didn't stick to the casserole. I doubt that I'd make this version, again.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I paired this soup with a turkey and cheese melt and, boy, was this good! So here's what I did: I used the suggestion of a previous reviewer and chopped up the stems and leaves of the broccoli. I sauteed the onion and celery in butter until tender; added in the broccoli and chicken broth; simmered it for about 20-25 minutes; in the meantime, I made the white sauce (butter, flour, half and half instead of whole milk and beat it until it was thick); then, I mashed the broccoli/onion/celery/broth mixture with a potato masher (to leave some texture to it); and added in the white sauce and let everything simmer for a bit. I did add salt to my desired taste (because I like seasoning and the recipe did not call for any).

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
I used all the ingredients listed with the exception of bay leaves because I didn't have any. I really did consider using Corrinne's suggestions but figured I'd stick to the recipe as much as I could. I was worried that this wouldn't turn out. It was just okay. It was definitely nothing to rave about and, in my opinion, is not worthy of the high rating it has. Not as written, at least. I seasoned the stew to my taste because it didn't have enough flavor. I also added garlic powder, onion powder, and diced canned tomatoes. After I added more spices and sampled a spoonful it tasted better. But, I was very disappointed with the finished product because the stew meat was WAY too lean. I mean, it was tender because I let this cook on low for about 10.5 or 11 hours, and the texture of the meat was just plain dry! There was no "richness" to it. Something told me to use the chuck roast instead, because it has fat throughout the meat, which would have provided a juicier, richer, flavor ... but I wanted to follow this recipe for the most part. Big mistake. So, while it was etable and not as bad and other people said it was, it just wasn't desirable and I will never make this again.

Beef and Rice Medley

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
As others have said, this is a good base recipe to build on. As written it seems bland. However, I followed the steps for the most part and tweaked it to my own taste. Here is what I did: Sauteed diced onion and red bell pepper in a little oil until tender (not translucent, but tender ... about three minutes), added in ground turkey (because that is what I had on hand), browned it until done, added the water and three chicken bouillon cubes (you should always use one cube per cup of water, but I added in three cubes since I didn't know how to halve one), added the rice, a can of diced tomatoes, and then black pepper, a little seasoning salt, a tad bit of celery salt, some garlic powder and onion powder, and let it simmer for about 30 minutes (until most of the liquid had soaked into everything). Then I poured everything into a baking dish, covered it with torn up pepperjack cheese slices and put it in the oven on 350 for about 10 minutes (long enough for the cheese to melt). BOY! WAS THIS GOOD. I served it with salad. Again, I think this recipe, as written, would be extremely bland unless you like bland food. For those of us who like full flavor and that "kick", you definitely need to take it up a notch.

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
After reading some of the reviews I decided to alter this recipe as well. I used all the same ingredients, minus the chicken broth and lemon zest. Here is what I did: cubed the chicken breast, seasoned it with seasoning salt, garlic powder and onion powder, sauteed it in oil, added fresh squeezed lemon juice after it was done and let it simmer, meanwhile the noodles were boiling (used bowtie), took meat off the burner to cool down a bit, drained pasta, mixed pasta in with the meat, added the heavy whipping cream, parsley flakes, cayenne pepper, shredded romano and parmesan cheese, and boy was this good!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
This was good but I’ll admit … I made some alternations based on previous reviews. I followed the recipe to a tee except I sauteed the chicken breasts in two fillets to make two and make them a little thinner (didn’t feel like pounding), browned them on each side until they had a slight crust, removed them from the pan, poured in chicken broth and added a little water and some chicken bouillon cubes, and let the chicken simmer in that with a lid on the pan. I served whole kernel corn with fresh cilantro, salt and butter, and a fresh garden salad on the side. Without that chicken broth I don’t think there would be enough “juices”.

Hamburger Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
As written this would be very bland. Where are the seasonings? I took the suggestions of others and used one can of tomato and one can of cream of mushroom soup. I seasoned the meat/soup mixture to my taste, and made the mashed potatoes with a little butter and salt as I normally would. Also, I did not mix in the green beans -- I just cooked them as a side dish. Edit: I thought this dish was great with the modifications I made. Also, I wanted to note that I used ground turkey instead of ground beef.

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
OMG!!! Simply delicious. Creamy, rich and flavorful! Note: I didn't add parmesan cheese because I didn't have any, but this dish was good without it. I also added a couple dashes of red cayenne pepper and a little more sugar than the reciped called for.

Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Mine wasn't as green as Amy's but it was OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. GOOD. Oh, my goodness. This was a big hit at a party I went to. I took the suggestion of other users and didn't add a whole bunch of cilantro. I used maybe half of a bunch (maybe a little more than half) and it was perfect. I served this with tortilla chips and crackers and it was off the chain. I will definitely make this again.

Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Very good. As someone suggested, I soaked the fruit in rum for a while. I took this to a party so I combined all the ingredients in advance and it was really good. Next time, I'll add apples and maybe mangos.

Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
I gave it four stars since the sauce was so good. It was VERY sweet but good. I used rum extract in place of rum (didn't want to waste alcohol if this didn't turn out). I love the bananas foster cheesecake from a local restaurant, so I thought this would be a big hit. Not for me. I am not a banana lover and felt the consistency of the warm bananas was off. I think I may have left them in the hot skillet a little too long. They were still in tact but the inside was mushy. I am planning to try this again but take the bananas out after about a minute.

Simple Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
As written, this recipe was bland in my opinion. I used it as a base and added to it. I only used pinto beans. Not the chili beans. I also did not use the ranch dressing mix. I used a variety of seasonings, including salt, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, dried cilantro flakes, one chicken bouillon cube, fajita seasoning and taco seasoning, and hot sauce. I also chopped some onion and sauteed it while the beef was draining. Note, I also used frozen corn instead of canned. I added everything together and used more water than the recipe called for, adjusting the seasoning so it wouldn't be bland (1.5 cups of water didn't make it look like a soup). Overall, it was good and I would definitely make this again. Next time I will probably use fresh cilantro and put it on top after I put the soup in the bowl. I served the soup with cheese quesadillas on the side. My husband really enjoyed this meal.

Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
This was good but needs some spice. I forgot to add some in the fruit mixture, but did sprinkle cinnamon on the topping before putting it in the oven. Next time I will use cinnamon and nutmeg in the fruit mixture. Maybe even allspice. One question, though? Where can you find rome beauty apples an comice pears? I used gala apples and bartlett pears.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I am sorry. I love broccoli and especially broccoli with lemon and garlic, but this was awful in my opinion. I followed the recipe to a tee and my broccoli seemed a tad bit dry and had a roasted but burnt flavor. I really wanted to like this but cannot describe the disappointment I felt after I realized I'd just wasted my broccoli. Maybe I did something wrong. My husband took one bite and said, "I'm not eating this!"

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I used boneless center cut pork chops and seasoned them as directed minus the sugar. I seared them in my cast iron skilliet, and made the apricot glaze to dip the meat in. OMG! THIS DISH WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD! Next time I will use a pork tenderloin for the "real" experience.
