Curry Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
I loved this, but have to admit that I increased the paprika, curry powder by 4-fold and ketchup and salt by 2-fold. I also took another reviewer's advice and used a large clove of fresh garlic. I actually tasted the marinade to get to these approximate increases. I was afraid that otherwise, the vinegar would have overpowered. Made a lot of marinade. UPDATE: Using basalmic vinegar adds so much without the hard acid from regular vinegar. Also,even more fresh garlic. Marinate overnight. If you want the most flavorful standard BBQ chicken ever, brush the chicken with BBQ sauce while cooking. Really some of the best chicken I've had in a long time.

Grilled Pork Tenderloins

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Really good. Kids ended up not having dinner that night so only prepared one of the tenderloins. On the second night (the well-marinated) other tenderloin morphed into pork stir fry. Chopped into bite size pieces, and lightly, very lightly coated with flour before cooking in a TBSP oil. Added a little siracha sauce and brown sugar to the orignal sauce, browned the pork really well, and stirred in the sauce. Simmered for 10 minutes. Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro. Serve with rice.

Javi's Really Real Mexican Ceviche

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
Shrimp were ok, but ahi tuna and halibut are the best. Cut raw fish into little bite size pieces and let sit until they "cook".

Sesame Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
When I first made this, I found myself wanting to make it Italian style, e.g., add basil, tomato, olives ... that sort of thing. So, I pushed and went decidedly Asian in flavor: Cilantro, rather than parsley, added shredded carrot for color, and edamame. Used rice wine vinegar rather than wine vinegar and even a touch of hoisin sauce. To make it pretty, make sure to slice the green onions vertically, then chop. This was really good. I just keep on thinking about that Italian/mediterrean version. I guess that's next (no sesame seeds then, right?)

Apple Brine for Turkey the Night Before Cooking

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
While this made the turkey very nice and moist (plus I used an oven bag), I wasn't crazy about the subtle apple flavor. Since other reviewers said that they couldn't taste the apple, I went ahead and tried it. Actually, the flavor almost felt like apples that had been sitting too long. I was hoping the apple juice would add tenderization and moistness, and no flavor, but I was wrong.

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
Well, I didn't even have all of the ingredients, but I can tell that this is a 5 star. I was missing Apricot preserves so I subbed Honey and it was awesome. I amped up the lime juice a little since I figured I needed more fruit/acid flavor. The other thing I changed was using real garlic rather than powdered garlic in the glaze. That may have saved the flavor, but it was really distinctive and will probably still use real garlic in the glaze next time. Next store run will definitely include apricot preserves. Hopefully tenderloin will be on sale.

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Not in love, but perfectly edible. I had a little over 1.5 lbs. of London Broil (round), and cooked nearly 11 hours. Certainly did NOT fall apart, but wasn't tough either. Don't understand needing more gravy as other reviewers were lamenting, as the meat was swimming in soup/ broth. The aroma of canned tomato soup and mushroom soup, mixed, is a bit tinny and I had concerns from the beginning. Took advice and added thinly sliced onion. I knew it needed more, and added Worchestchire sauce, a TBS vinegar (presumably for tenderness), fresh rosemary, fresh thyme, and fresh sage. Added a few odds/ ends dry stuff like Monterey seasoning and garlic powder, but still wouldn't say I would ever need to have this again... I'd suggest that if you really want a 3 minute recipe next time, drive thru. If you have more time, dutch oven method is superior.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Really good. I didn't have apricot nectar but I did have orange juice and apricot preserves, which I mixed together to get to about the same consistency as nectar. Sorry to those of you who would rather that people follow directions exactly. Better than just salt & pepper!

Hamburgers and Ketchup Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This is similar to what my beloved, late mother-in-law used to make. She didn't write this one down, but I think the essence lives on with this recipe. Added a few finely (finely) minced shallots to the meat mixture and threw in 2 sage leaves, and a few rosemary leaves during the simmering phase. Will make again. Really very comforting. Somehow slightly over-salted this the first time -- something to keep an eye on. since i've added a pinch of ground sausage. Great flavor.

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
This is a relatively easy recipe with authentic flavor. I didn't have pickled ginger so I just used a bit of fresh. Tastes like the restaurant down the street. Thanks!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
Yikes! This was hot. I used the Chinese-style chili/garlic sauce and it was on fire. My family likes that kind of stuff and the flavor was absolutely great, but next time, I think I'll cut back a bit. I added green onion and cilantro and cooked until nice and brown before adding the sauce. also good to just let it soak before cooking in these things. Served with jasmine rice and cool cucumber salad. With modifications, this will be a 6 star.

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
For another, different recipe, I had already started marinating or soaking chicken in Salt &Pepper, diced onion, crushed garlic, cilantro, green onions, and cayenne when I stumbled across this recipe. I changed my plans and used this instead. It was awesome. This needs ginger -- if you have fresh, better, but spice rack will do the trick. Add a little red pepper too. Quite honestly, the richness in flavor was just under the mark, but I think with a little more marinating/soaking, this would be a six star. I found a peanut sauce recipe on the site (with fish sauce, chili oil, and vinegar), and it was great. Everyone knew that we were having Satay when they walked in the house. Served with basmati rice with a couple of peas/cilantro/ and green onion thrown in. Muy bueno. If I knew how to say "really good" in Thai, then you get the picture. As an update, strips of pork tenderloin work really well too, and they're low fat!

Lemon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Excellent with modifications. I made a crust out of graham crackers and butter, adding in about a tsp of lemon zest. I used low fat Yoplait lemon yogurt -- it's only 6 oz. so I added about 2 oz. of lemon curd. Also, added about a TBS of lemon zest to the pie itself to make it really lemony. I used regular cream cheese which made it very creamy and two regular eggs. Needs the sour cream topping as suggested by another reviewr. Really good and lemony. A water bath is recommended below the pie to avoid cracking. I've had requests to make this again and will update!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Wow. I only made a half recipe and there was still a lot of food, but really delicious way to make these veggies. It's the right combination of sweet (from the basalmic, squash, and sweet potatoes) and salt. I added minced Garlic to the basalmic and olive oil. I didn't have yukon golds yesterday but used russets. The russets were the best flavor of them all and I'm not sure I'd want the sweeter softer yukons. Made sure to use fresh rosemary and thyme as well. A Keeper.

Alfredo Light

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Wow. I was looking for a quick recipe and feel like I hit the jackpot. Like others, I used 2% milk as I didn't have skim. I squeezed some more garlic into the milk/broth mixture and probably used twice the parm. Browned chicken with garlic, onion, parsley, rosemary and thyme. Added in some sun dried tomatoes. Removed the chicken from the skillet. Added the broth to the skillet to thicken, which it did quite nicely. Added the chicken back and used penne. Reminded us of a local restaurant favorite Penne Al Pollo. Try this one.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
Did anyone find this a little dry? The sauce really needed a bit more moisture. This was my first lasagna ever, but it was almost ok. Also, too salty.

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
The first time I made this, it was a little less than 4 stars. I added chicken, which needed more flavor, and did not add any cilantro. The second time, I just made the noodles and added fresh Cilantro. Also a dash (1/2 tsp) of Chili Oil. Next, the recipe calls for 6 TBS oil -- which makes it a bit greasy, so I reduced and used about 3 1/2 TBS. This made it great. Great with Broccoli Beef I here at the website...

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
No leftovers here. I let the beef set for about 30 minutes (not really marinate) in a little soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, sugar, and a bit of salt and pepper. Serve this with white rice and the Sesame Noodles recipe on this website.

Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
This wasn't very good. It was awful. I even soaked it all nite. Even after doctoring with extra soy, cilantro, curry, garlic, and soy sauce in the marinade, it was truly missing a lot. The usual depth of Thai flavor wasn't there. No good. Not sure where it should go from here..
