Fresh Salsa I

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
Even better than what the most well-known mexican restaurants serve! Just the right amount of everything an addicting chip salsa needs. You'll get great feedback from a crowd with this one!

Fettuccine Alfredo V

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2005
Very good - would make again. If you don't want too rich of a flavor, cut the garlic, butter, and parsley in half and throw in some shrimp. Perfecto!

Fire Roasted Tomato and Chipotle Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2005
Not the best for snacking, but might be good to give grilled chicken a punch.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2005
Really good! I've found it be better with only 2 tbs of cilantro and the whole 4oz can of green chilis. Add 1 tsp of sugar, and you'll be eating this days!

Authentic Mexican Breakfast Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
These are delicious! Only bad part was I ate a couple before packing them up. Made for the perfect morning snack after camping.

Easy Salsa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Interesting approach to meatloaf, but pretty good none the less. Extremely easy even for the bachelor and better than the frozen section!

Chicken Breasts with Lime Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
This is a great go to dish any day of the week. Next time I think I'll try pounding the chicken and balance the citrus with something sweet.

Chipotle Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
This was tasty, but I have to agree that the chipotle overpowered the dish. Halfway through enjoying it our noses were running! Unless you are one of those people who put tabasco on everything, I think 1 tbsp would do this meal nicely.

Cajun Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
I have to agree with previous comments. The seasoning is not very flavorful and doesn't really compliment the pork. I would leave out the sage and creole seasoning and add in some red pepper flakes, onion powder and thyme.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
Really good, packed with lots of flavor that blends well with the potatoes. Red pepper flake dishes are always a big hit in my house!

Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
Pretty good. Homemade seasonings are definately better than buying those package mixes. As far as the corn flour, it's essential for the flavor, but I did feel the overall taste was a little bland. To answer a previous question, corn flour is like masa used in various latino foods. It's not the same as corn starch. It's found in the mexican food isle of the grocery store and sometimes is called corn masa or masa harina.

Turkey Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
Pretty good, I would probably make this again to my taste with more a little more garlic and use 1 1/2 cups of chicken stock instead.

Noodles Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
This was pretty good. I was looking for something fast and easy to make with leftover egg noodles. I used 3 tbps of fresh parsley instead, and the key to having a smooth sauce is to use freshly grated parmesan, not pre-shredded.

Pork in Olive Oil Marinade

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
Pretty good - next time I think I will try deglazing the pan with the marinade and add just a pinch more cayenne.

Buffalo Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2006
I agree, kind of a bland coating, but it is much healthier and easier than "true" fried buffalo wings or tenders. Next time I will try adding Frank's Hot Sauce to the egg mixture and see how that works.

Mozzarella Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
I agree with using thin sliced chicken fillets instead of messing with pounding out regular breasts. I used half the amount of sauce so the bottom of the chicken wouldn't get soggy in the pan. Next time, I might add a little flour to the sauce to thicken it up. But overall, this was really good and worth the effort!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2006
This was really easy and delicious! Can't wait to taste it the next day cold. Only suggestion I have is to reduce the veg oil and maybe punch it up a bit with a few dashes of hot sesame oil.

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2006
This was really simple and good. One suggestion I have is to warm up the chicken broth separately and allow the saffron threads to soften so the flavor is better distrubuted. This shouldn't necessarily taste like spanish rice so I don't agree with some reviews adding cumin, but I would add a squeeze of fresh lime and substitute the parsley for cilantro.

Shredded Beef for Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
This is super simple and pretty good. I agree with other comments that it's kinda lacking in the flavor department. I used some simple things like beer, lime and cumin for addditional flavor. The best part of the recipe is it introduced me to Mexican tomato sauce. I'm gonna have to start using that in more recipes - it was great!

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2006
This is pretty good and definately fast to put together for those late work nights. The only thing I changed was I used more broth and added a little white wine - and drank the rest :)
