Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2006
I do know my Mexican food being from South Texas, and this recipe is definately a keeper. I have to agree with a prior comment that it's okay to tweak a recipe, but to revamp the whole thing? Well, just come up with your own idea make it your way I say. I like the fact that there is no sauce on top of these. Honestly, it doesn't need all the extra layers of flavor. The only thing I changed was I used only a couple of tablespoons of filling (instead of 4) for 6 inch tortillas. Otherwise, it's too much to fold. Also, I only baked them for 20 minutes, and the tortillas came out nicely golden brown and the cheese was perfectly melted on top without being dried out. Thanks for the recipe!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

Buffalo Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
These are awesome, and easy! If you love Hooter's, then these are the shrimp for you. Try using Frank's Louisiana Hot Sauce for that perfect zing and water chestnut flour so the sauce doesn't make the coating soggy.

Sassy Chicken Enchilada Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
This was great! Believe it or not, I actually used refried beans instead of cream cheese. It was excellent. Not as spicy as I thought it would be though, so maybe next time I will up the amount of heat.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
I guess I'm just not a big fan of chinese 5 spice. I would cut that in half, and marinate the chicken using the dry spices and some soy sauce before coating it with the flour. Otherwise this was really good and probably would make again.

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
This is really good. Word to the wise - make sure you buy low sodium chicken broth so you can control the salt. I didn't the first time and it was just too salty. Add a little white pepper and this is like the name says, just like the restaurants!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2006
This was really good. The only thing I can say that was not perfect, for me at least, was I would use a tad less butter and lemon next time. After the first few bites, my taste buds adjusted and it was definately an enjoyable, easy meal.

Tasty BBQ Corn on the Cob

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 :)

Caribbean Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
This dish was great, but I kept wondering why my mouth was burning after the first bite? Come to find out, the curry powder I had was RED curry powder. Ooops! I would definately try this recipe again with regular curry. The only thing I left out was the tomato, but that's just personal preference. Thanks

Absolutely The Best Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
This was really good, but not worth going out and buying brandy and white wine (unless it's bottles you keep on hand). I agree with some that the sauce got too absorbed. A little butter would help.

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.

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.

Texas Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
This made for a super easy and fast dinner. I only had 1 can each of ranch beans and rotel on hand but found it was enough. I also added the juice from the beans in with the other liquids so it could cook off. Just personal taste, I don't like my rice dishes mushy. Thanks

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!
