Tzatziki Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
Good, but next time I will use more yogurt and greek yogurt instead. Straining through the cloth was difficult, but then I'd never done that before. I put more mint in than it called for, and next time I'll do a bit of dill too. I used this on goat meat gyros.

LIZZY217's Lamb Gyros

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
Great recipe. I used goat meat instead of lamb, which was a bit tough but very yummy. Also I used a slightly different tzatziki recipe, and spinach leaves instead of shredded lettuce. The marinade for the meat was just divine!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
Extremely yummy. Added 3 drops of ghost pepper sauce instead of the regular hot sauce, and didn't do the tomato paste because I forgot to buy it. Turned out perfect anyway! Roasted some bell peppers in the same pan as the meatloaf.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
Made for my class - they loved it. Also made a variation w/ roasted red peppers, blending half the peppers into the hummus and chopped the rest up as texture/extra flavor. Also I added more tahini than called for. Warning - do not shake your can of tahini no matter how separated it is. Just get equal parts solid and liquid and add them to your food processor.

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
Awesome recipe. Makes enough butter (way too much actually) to drizzle and enough stuffing for 24-30 good-sized mushrooms. I used less than the whole box of chicken stuffing too. I only made 13 shrooms, so I froze the other half of the butter/garlic drizzle and crab mix. Also, a 1/2 lb of crab claw meat only cost $7 and I'm glad I used that and not imitation!

My Grandma's Shoo-Fly Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
Turned out great! I sprinkled a tiny bit of the topping in the bottom of the shell, but I didn't have to. It wasn't runny. I used just under a cup of molasses. Also substituted butter for the shortening because I ran out.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Used the shoulder cut and came out great. Made the mistake of lidding the first 2 chops and those turned out a bit chewy, but the rest were great. Maybe I reduced my sauce TOO much, but I would make more next time, didn't feel like it was enough. Paired with asparagus and quinoa.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Awesome meatballs. Use the leanest beef you can find, cut the onion by half and make sure to chop it finely. The hot sauce I used was ghost pepper sauce and it only needed a few drops.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
The best! Used fettuccini instead of linguini noodles. Also when you add the whipping cream to all those veggies and chicken there's nowhere in the pan to whip it up into a cream so I added a bit of cornstarch to get it creamy. Really really good recipe. I also used a lot more than 2 tsp of cajun seasoning.

London Broil II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
Buy "london broil" and not flank steak, the price is better and the cut is more accurate. LOVED this recipe but I changed the cooking method. My beef was a little over 1" thick. I put it on foil on a broiler pan, and used the broil setting on the oven, placing the meat 8" below the heat source. The medium-rare cooked 7 minutes on each side. The medium-well cooked 9 mins on each side. Then I wrapped the foil around it for 10 mins to cool and seal in the juices, then sliced. We devoured it, it was so yummy! Paired with asparagus.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
Did it on a GE (like a foreman) grill because I live in an apartment. Turn the heat to medium, or the marinade caramelizes everything. I added pineapples to the marinading mix a few hours before I grilled. Also will cut the onion pieces larger next time--they are hard to skewer. I let everything soak in the marinade for about 22 hours and the chicken was super tender. Also pour extra marinade over cooking skewers when they only have 1-2 mins to go.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
I shredded the chicken at the 3 hour mark and cooked it on low for 10 hours, but the last few hours I wasn't home and my crock pot burnt the sugars in the sauce. The un-burned part was delicious! My photo is pre-burning.

Absolutely The Best Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Excellent flavor, although I had trouble getting the shrimp to sautee up without all the mixture falling off. In the end there was not a lot of sauce to go overtop, and it seemed dry. May try again with more wet ingredients?

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
The sauce and broccoli were good, but the meat cooked tough and chewy. I don't know if it was user error or the recipe, as I've never accidentally done that before? Anyway not that great, probably won't make again.
