Lentil and Green Collard Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
Delicious! I made a few minor tweaks. For 1/3 of the water I used chicken stock. Added a little celery and leaves. Added turmeric and curry powder. I had scaled for one so I eyeballed the amount. The flavors were great and it was very filling!

Seafood Mocequa

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
I really loved this recipe but did make some adaptations based on previous suggestions and my own taste/availability. I used catfish, shrimp, and clams. I also tripled the liquid. I didn't have fish stock so I used clam juice from the canned clams for half of the liquid and water for the other half. Of course I increased Tabasco because of the added liquid. I also seasoned a bit more with curry powder (I scaled the recipe to 1 and used 1/2 tsp. so I assume 2 tsp. for full recipe). I also didn't have green onions but substituted with chives. I will definitely make this again!

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
This was a great recipe! I never leave a recipe alone and I made some adaptations. I used Italian hot and sweet sausage because that's what I had. I also added a chopped jalapeno and left the seeds in plus a dash or two of Crystal hot sauce for some more heat. I used half wild rice and added earlier and then added half brown rice at the end. This was delicious, I will certainly make it again!

Indian Shrimp Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
YUM! I loved this recipe and will definitely make again. I read some reviews and did make a few additions/changes. First I used coconut oil, I didn't have peanut oil. I added cayenne pepper, about 1/2 tsp. and added a jalapeno that I left the seeds in and diced finely. Added a good amount of heat. I realized at the last minute I didn't have cilantro so I used the same amount of parsley and about 1/2 - 1/4 tsp. dried mint. The flavor was delicious and the recipe is really easy. Thanks!

Baked Apples

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
This recipe is very similar to how my mother used to make it! I used Granny Smith apples and the ingredients as written. I did however add an extra 10 minutes to the cooking time because I like a softer apple. A great treat is pouring cream in the bottom of the bowl when serving. I read other reviews about coring all the way through and I must disagree as this steams from the outside instead of cooking from the inside and provides a different texture than I was looking for at least. I will definitely make this again!

Tilapia Scampi

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I loved this. I wanted something a little different to do with tilapia that wasn't labor-intensive. This was perfect and delicious! I suggest serving with a good roll to sop up extra sauce and some roasted veggies. Thanks, will definitely make this again!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
Loved it! Took the advice from other reviews and used 1/2 cup veg oil and 1/2 cup applesauce as well as cutting sugar to 2 cups, 1 cup white, 1 cup dark brown sugar. I didn't use walnuts but can imagine it would be great with them. My husband hadn't even heard of zucchini bread, he loved it! Delicious!

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012

Chicken Stock Gumbo

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
This was delicious! I didn't have frozen okra but I used a can of sliced okra, I added chopped green chilies, and I used quite a bit more cayenne. I did serve with more rice (we used brown rice instead). My husband and I loved this, we will certainly have again!

Harvest Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
This soup was delicious! I am the type who can never leave well enough alone so I added about 1 tsp. chopped celery leaf, some chopped baby carrots (3-4 larger ones), a clove of garlic chopped, and used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Thanks to previous rater who mentioned this freezes well, I have half a batch in the freezer as we speak. I will absolutely make this again!

Gumbo Style Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Very good, my husband and I loved it! Instead of diced tomatoes with chilies, I used fire roasted diced tomatoes and added 3 chopped jalapenos. I also took the suggestion to add some thyme. Really good and really easy!

Mozechilli Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
This will certainly be a go-to recipe, thank you! I made some adjustments and it was delicious! Instead of using spaghetti sauce I used fire roasted diced tomatoes with chipotle peppers and tri-color rotini. I added garlic, onion, and green peppers while browning the meat and a spice mix of onion salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika, and garlic powder. I took another suggestion to cover for the first 15 minutes of baking. I also included parmesan cheese with the mozzarella. This was really filling and delicious with LOTS of room to adjust for what I have on hand and didn't flavors!

Pork Fried Rice for Two

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I love this recipe, I have made it a few times now and it is the perfect way to use up some leftover pork loin. I just add it at the end to heat through with the other ingredients. The recipe has a very flexible flavor profile that complements any other vegetables you want to use. Thanks!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I loved this recipe! I made revisions as suggested and boiled vegetables in chicken broth, reserving liquid for sauce, and baked at 350 for 30 minutes. I also added frozen broccoli, green beans, and 2 cloves minced garlic to the other vegetables. I altered the spices to 1/4 tsp celery salt, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, and 1/4 tsp garlic powder. I increased the milk to 3/4 cups. I also used leftover smoked chicken that I shredded. Delicious!

Simple Swiss Chard

Deviled Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Thank you so much for this concept! I had some extra roma tomatoes to use up and used those. I made some revisions though and used balsamic vinegar instead of distilled white and I added some basil, panko bread crumbs and shredded mozzarella to the filling plus one small roma diced. I topped it off with some parmesan and baked for 10 minutes at 350. They were delicious! Thank you for providing the jumping off point for a spontaneous side dish!

Cheddar Chicken Spirals

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
This recipe was really good! I made some changes though and added more cheese, substituted sour cream for mayo (thanks for the earlier suggestion) and used chopped chopped fresh vegetables. I didn't have spiral pasta so I used spaghetti broken in half. I also baked in the oven covered at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Delicious!
