Baked Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2006
I like making fried eggplant slices as a snack to nibble on, and I was looking for a healthier alternative to frying them. I tried this recipe and I was really pleased with it! The only thing I did different was instead of sour cream, I used fat free plain yogurt since that's what I had in the fridge. Thanks for the recipe!

Fried Zucchini

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
I've tried frying zucchini with a bread crumb coating (like with eggplant) and was never pleased with it, I hadn't thought of using cornmeal but thanks for this recipe because it turned out great! Makes a great snack.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
This was great because it was so easy to make, and the chicken was perfectly moist and tender. The only changes I made were that I added a little garlic powder and onion powder to the flour coating and I used baby bella mushrooms instead of white ones. However, I wouldn't receommend making those changes because there's no need to add spice, and bellas have a robust flavor that doesn't need to be added to this already flavorful sauce. I too added some flour to thicken the sauce, and it was delicious! I'll definitely make this again soon.

Stuffed Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
I made this a couple years ago at Thanksgiving and ever since, I get relatives making me assure them I'll be making "those stuffed mushrooms of yours" at every event. Everyone loves them so much and I almost feel guilty because they are so easy to make! I have family members that are allergic to seafood so that's why I first made these instead of crab stuffed ones, and there sure aren't ever any complaints. The ingredients are cheap too! I'm sure I'll be making them for Christmas this year too, thanks for the recipe :)

Awesome Roast Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
I liked how this came out! I seasoned the meat with a little garlic powder (poked the meat and moistened it a bit). I halved some red potatoes and placed them in the pot with some baby carrots and added a little onion soup mix to the sauce to pour over the roast, as others suggested. I had some sliced baby bellas that I wanted to use up so I added them in about halfway through before flipping the roast at that time, and for those of you who are mushroom lovers, I definitely suggest adding more mushrooms! I shredded the leftover meat for sandwiches for the week, as well as the vegetables for snacking, and took another reviewer's advice and boiled the remaining liquid with flour to produce an awesome gravy. What a great and easy meal that lasts for days! This was my first crock pot beef roast and my boyfriend and I were both thrilled with it, thank you!

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2005
Overall this was really good, but I don't think the extra salt is necessary (and i love salt). I added about half a can of pureed tomato, and used mexican cheese cheddar jack cheese. I think that with the spices adds all the flavor you need. I've had this soup before in Arizona and other mexican joints here and there, and I find this recipe to be right up there. I'll be making it again, adjusting the salt content. Thanks!

Rosemary Sherry Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
I have made this recipe several times and I've affectionately labelled it "Rockin' Chops". I hated onions all my life but wanted to test myself and this was the first recipe that made me suddenly love them. I just wanted to thank you Stacey for the recipe, it's so easy and one of my definite favorites.

Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
I have made this several times, it is so easy and satisfying. The only thing I do different is that I don't add very much grated cheese to the bread crumbs. Instead, I sprinkle some fresh shredded parmesan on the fillets about halfway through baking. The cheese is melted but also kinda of crunchy, adding a nice taste and texture. I'll be trying this one on my boyfriend who hates seafood but wants to start eating it for health reasons, I bet he'll be pleasantly surprised.

London Broil I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
This was PERFECT. The marinade was just right (I added a little sweet bbq sauce) and the steak came out so juicy and flavorful. I only marinated it for about 5 hours, and it was excellent, so next time I will try marinading overnight and I bet it will be heavenly. I'll make this over and over for sure, thank you!

Busy Day Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
This came out very good, this is what I did: I only had two people to cook for so I used 3 bone-in chicken breasts with ribs. I removed most of the skin, seasoned the breasts with salt and pepper, and balled up some foil in the bottom of the crock pot and put the meat in the pot. I covered it all with the bbq sauce I had on hand, 1 bottle Bullseye Sweet Hickory and 1/2 bottle Bullseye Sweet Homestyle. I set it on low for 5 hours and about halfway into it, I poked the meat with a fork, re-arranged the pieces (my pot is small) and added more sauce. When it was done I let it sit, then shredded the meat a little and added a little bit more sauce. Needless to say, my bbq sauce supply was almost gone after this but it is a great and easy way to make really tasty bbq chicken meat for sandwiches. Ps: It also helps if you happened to have found bbq sauce on sale for "2 for 1" ;) I'm sure I'll be making this again, thank you!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
Incredibly delicious! I used what I had on hand, but the basic recipe is what I followed and it was SO wonderful. I scaled the recipe in half but used 3/4 package broccoli florets, since so many others suggested using extra broccoli. I used about 1 cup mexican style shredded cheese and 1/2 cup italian style mix shredded cheese, and 1/4 cup broken up american cheese pieces, since that's what I had on hand. I used fat free milk and added a teaspoon of mustard powder and chopped the broc up with my spatula while it was simmering, and used flour instead of cornstarch. I can't believe frozen broccoli and random cheeses came out so great! Thanks!

Grilled Pork Steaks with Lemon Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
I would have liked the marinade to get into the meat a little more, so maybe poking it with a fork before marinating is a good idea. I marinated them for a few hours, adding some black pepper and Adobo seasoning to the marinade, and grilled them on my mini indoor grill. I just seared each side on high heat every other minute while basting the other side as recommended, and kept a very close eye on it - you definitely have to do that on an indoor grill, especially if you use tender boneless chops like I did. The boyfriend and I really liked the flavor; we're always looking for healthy and tasty recipes. I'll make it again, thanks!

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
This was pretty good, the meat fell off the bone (I used bone-in breasts) and there was plenty of flavor, but I agree that the liquid amounts need to be adjusted so that the meat is covered in the pot. I threw some sliced onion and baby carrots in the bottom and cooked on low for 6 hours; I think 5 would have been a little better. It tasted just like mom's homemade chicken soup - nothing wrong with that! - but if you're looking for something fancier, you might be a little let down by this one. Adding white wine really gives it a nice touch. I'll be making it again soon, thanks for the recipe!

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
I marinated the shrimp for a couple of hours and used an indoor grill. They came out great! I served them with rice pilaf and broccoli. A really delicious, light, healthy meal. Thanks!

California Sherry Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I LOVE this recipe. I used to do a variation of it which adds egg to the breading step and cutting up the chicken at the end and tossing with bowtie pasta. I have switched to this one because it is healthier and just as tasty. I add a little more garlic because I like it so much. I also like to add some chopped fresh basil leaves during the last minute or so of simmer time, it's a really complimentary flavor to the recipe and adds some flare to presentation if you are serving to guests. I like to sprinkle some black pepper over the chicken at the end and, if serving with pasta, a little parmesan cheese. Beautiful!

New England Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
This is a very good recipe. I used immitation crab meat, which I knew was probably not a good idea but I tried it anyway. Sure enough it was pretty dry, but I bet with canned or real crabmeat the cakes will be just right, so next time I will use that. I also added a little more dijon and a pinch more Old Bay to the mix and broiled them. Very tasty!

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
This is my first review for anything on this site, which I have been using for a couple of years. This was absolutely fantastic! The sauce was perfect. I used the shallots, garlic, and baby bella mushrooms. The loin took some babying because mine was only about 1 lb. and I had to adjust cooking time. I had some leftovers of both the meat and the sauce and it was just as good re-heated. My boyfriend loved it as well. Definitely one of my new favorites, thanks!
