Asian Roll Lettuce Wrap

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
My husband and I have always loved eating the lettuce wraps at Pei Wei. We thought these were even beter than the ones there. I didn't think it was a lot of prep time considering it's a whole meal. I would have doen just as much if I needed to do sides as well. Low cost and low fat; with loads of good flavor. As far as other reviews saying messy; lettuce wraps are supposed to be. I suggest two heads of lettuce just to get enough of the big leaves.

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole

Reviewed: May 29, 2006
This recipe was good and added some variety to the usual speghetti and meatballs. I used regular onion for the meatballs b/c I don't think green onions cook as well. Instead of cutting the bread in cubes I figured I would keep it more like a sandwhich and cut the bread in thick slices and layered the bottom of the baking dish with the slices. I got the bread good in toasted in the oven beforehand for about ten minutes. Then I placed the meatballs on the bread and poured room temp sauce on the top. I kept in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese. I think this kept the bread from getting soggy (slicing, and toasting). I also topped the whole thing with fresh minced garlic. This was really good!

Peach-Basil Sangria

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I was looking for a light/refreshing/fruity cocktail to serve at a party and I found this one. The basil is not overpowering, but a very nice complement to the fruit in this drink. Sometimes it is hard to find peach nectar, or somtimes it is bland or kind of metallic tasting when you buy it in a can, so we used half mango nectar and half peach. I served it with cheap magnum sized bottles of chardonnay (nothing too sweet) and it was great. Everyone loved it and asked me for the recipe. Nicest thing about it, was we had leftover syrup from this recipe, and I put it in a mason jar in the fridge and continued to make it a glass at a time after the party. So yummy!

Tomato Sausage Tart

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This was very yummy. The only thing I would do differently, is to blanch the tomatoes before and peel them. The skins don't bake so well in the oven.

Four Seasons Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
My husband absolutely loves these. I buy ground turkey and brown it instead of cooked sliced turkey. I like this recipe because most all of the ingredients are from a can, which makes it so easy to prepare. The flour tortillas often can get dry when baking, but not with this recipe since you cover it with salsa and cheese. It is very yummy and I have cooked it several times.

Greek Bifteki

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
It was very good. I am not a fan much of thyme or as others suggested, oregano. I substituted Greek seasoning and served it over those really thin whole grain hamburger buns with lettuce and tomatoes. It was very good and a nice change to the regular burger. I get tired of regular burgers sometimes.

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This is such an afforadable dish that will keep well if your family doesn't mind leftovers (and I like to have them for my lunches at work). Very yummy, quick economical dinner on those worknights when you want a quick meal.

Porcupines

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
I followed the recipe but my rice did not cook. It says uncooked and nowhere does it say to cook. I would also use something other than tomato sauce to cover it.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Sometimes I buy tilapia frozen and in a bag, and when bought this way, it can be a little bland, so this sauce is an excellent way to make extra delicious those frozen, mild fish filets you keep in the freezer. So easy and the family enjoys it.

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This is way better than the chicken salad my family loves to get at a local restaurant. I actually did the sauce in triplicate because my Dad loves to put extra on his salad. I poached the chicken in broth so that it would be very moist and tender and have some good flavor (for about 15 mins on med heat, halfway covered in broth or stock). I also added julien sliced red and orange bell pepper for flavor. I didn't want to turn on my oven in the heat, so I sprinkled the top with chow mein noodles after tossing and served with them on the side so ppl could add as they choose. Next time, instead of tossing the salad ahead of time with dressing, I will serve it with the dressing on the side. It caused my romaine lettuce to wilt a little too much. I was unable to find chili paste at my grocery store, so I substituted Hot Garlic Chili sauce, and it added a nice flavor without too much heat. I will def. continue to cook this as a meal in the summer since I love a one dish meal. Delicious!!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

This was so yummy. I love Asian infused food like this. I did add fresh steamed peas for that little bit of color and more variety.

Barbecued Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
My husband loved this. Such a nice change from the old-fashioned chicken salad, and I can make a lot of it ahead of time. I used pre-cooked sliced chicken fajita meat as a time saver.

B.L.A.T. Wraps

Such a quick meal and very yummy. We ate these for dinner with nothing else. I don't like HIdden Valley Ranch so much, so next time I'll serve it with homemade ranch.

Pastitsio II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This is delicious. A little time consuming, but well worth it when cooking for company since so much of it can be prepared at a time. It also keeps well and makes a lovely lunch for me to bring to work the next day. My Dad ate thirds and fourths the last time I made this. It is now one of my most impressive meals served with Greek Salad and Baklava as dessert. A good winter time meal, and cheaper than moasaka since you need to buy eggplant, and I can't always find eggplant at my grocery store. This is def. a recipe I have made more than once. Thank you!
