Spanish Potato Omelet

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
My friend from Barcelona taught me how to make this 2 months ago & I've made it for my family 5 times since - my 2 kids & my "meat loving" husband love this & if have it for dinner w/o meat, everyone is happy. My friend taught me a time saving trick for busy moms that does not change the flavor - she cooks the sliced potatoes w/ the onion & olive oil in a glass pyrex dish in the microwave for 7 minutes or so, or until they're tender. I have a newborn baby & less time, and found a great bag of frozen hash browns at Trader Joe's, no ingredients other than potatoes; I throw the bag in the microwave for 5 minutes with the onion, olive oil, salt/pepper (uncovered in a glass pyrex dish). Then cook the omelette with 7 eggs, use plenty of oil for when you flip it. So good at room temp., better than hot. No other additions. YUM!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
Thank you! Wonderful, super moist bread, I followed naples34102 tips. Was looking for a high fiber mini-muffin recipe for my daughter & a way to use very 5 over-ripe bananas. I doubled the recipe, which made 2 trays of mini muffins to freeze & a big loaf of bread. I added reconstituted raisins & shredded 1/2 a bag of baby carrots (tossed those & the walnuts w/ flour so they don't sink) & used white-whole-wheat flour from trader joe's. Also, I had no sour cream & needed to use some ricotta up; fortunately that worked really well! I just added a bit of milk to that & finally some apple sauce, as the mix was a tad think w/ all the crazy additions. VERY DELICIOUS. thanks!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
We had this for the 1st time tonight, so good, thanks! Picky kids ate it up. I used a whole tub of 'fresh' salsa from the store (not a jar); this was the 1st time I cooked w/ that versus the jar & it was way better than my usual "salsa surprise" meal that my husband doesn't exactly rave about. We loved this though & will definitely make again! I made homemade taco seasoning & probably used closer to 6 or 7 teaspoons & added a t. of flour to that, shook it in a bag with the chicken per other reviews. Thanks!

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
Wonderful! Beautiful presentation on rice & much easier than I thought it would be to make...company worthy for sure. Not many baked boneless chicken dishes come out great in my oven, this was perfect though (I'm used to marinating & grilling chicken). My husband hates ham so I marinated large strips of red bell pepper in a balsamic vinaigrette I made for a few hours, rolled that with provolone slices & fresh chopped parsley w/ the chicken. I liked the suggestions to put the crumbs on a plate & roll that way. Thanks.

Chef John's Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
Reminds me of my nana's! Wonderful. I just omitted the cayenne & red pepper flakes, & parboiled the peppers for 5 minutes before stuffing & only had to bake 1/2 hour. Did not use sausage either. Thank you!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
Thank you! I used coconut oil cooking spray; they were better than any diner in our NYC neighborhood! My kids loved them for dinner last night, & heated up for breakfast this morning (microwaved the cooked leftovers):)

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
SO easy & soooo good! Tastes like chipotle's shredded pork. I used 2 pounds of pork loin, the listed amount of seasonings (more salt though, at the end before serving) & 1 cup of broth with 1 T. of lemon juice. Was done in 9 hours. Thank you; my toddlers both love it in cheese quesadillas, with avocados & black beans on the side.

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2014
Easy & Delicious, thank you! I was craving lemon-strawberry bread, so I used those instead of blueberries; no nuts & substituted lemon zest for 4T more lemon juice (bottle) as I had no lemons. I like the glaze a lot, used the regular white sugar the recipe calls for & nuked it for a minute to combine, so it wasn't grainy. The batter was DELICIOUS too:)

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
Thank you! I've made this twice in 1 month. I've always grilled fish but live in a NYC apt. now without a grill, so I was searching for a recipe to do in the oven & followed Elizabeth's review from 11/9/07. My husband & I split 1 pound of fish, so I scale back on the marinade proportions a bit & substitute with olive oil & lemon juice. I've only had time to marinate for 30 min. in a bowl, then put fish & marinade in a roomy foil packet in a casserole dish sprayed with PAM. Baked for 13 min. at 425, then opened the foil (covering the more done portions) & broiled 2 min. to finish.The sauce carmalizes on top & is so good spooned onto the fish at the table.Thank you!

Cilantro Lime Catfish

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
Thanks Cyndi! I was looking for a way to oven bake 1 portion (1/2 pound) of a Turbot Filet; a mild white fish. This was perfect & went GREAT w/ the Zesty Quinoa from this site (though I used cous cous not quinoa); both had cilantro & lime & were a fresh/healthy meal after all the Christmas over-eating:) I scaled the portions to one & then per another reviewer suggestion I mixed the sauce (replacing butter w/ olive oil) & marinated the fish for 15 minutes. Then wrapped it in a foil packet (leaving room for air to cirulate a bit) & baked for 12 minutes, checking it & did another few minutes until it was to my liking. Thanks!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
Thank you MOSHASMAMA & Grandma Ople! I have cooked dinners from allrecipes monthly for years, but have only written a handful of reviews; this recipe is fabulous. My mom has an amazing recipe for a apple pie but I couldn't find it & I was daunted to make bake one (it's kind of a lot of work to prep the apples) but this was so worth it! My family picked apples at an orchard last week & the apples were taunting me to make pie - this recipe makes me feel like a Domestic Goddess for making a literal farm to table dessert (we live in NYC).I LOVE how the sauce is poured over the lattice top, it carmalizes on the crust & is FABULOUS. My husband & I were fighting over the crust from the top & that never happens. When making it I didn't have the talent or time to weave the lattice top, I just laid 4 slices of crust down, then laid 5 on top of those, cross-ways. I had to add 1t cinammon (props to my mom) & per other reviewers I added 1t vanilla, a splash of lemon juice & a good pinch of salt...(it's great in salted caramel) the amount of sauce to apples was wonderful. I had a mix of apples on hand & did 5 cups sliced, baked as directed. THANK YOU!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
Thank you for the recipe, I've never gotten these right before & it's an excellent base recipe. Per reviews I halved the sprouts & blanched for 2 min. in water w/ Lawry's seasoned salt, before roasting added 2 cloves of chopped garlic & a small onion sliced thin, roasted 20 min. I have never seen my 1 year old son eat so many vegetables & am floored that Brussels sprouts are what he finally picked to chow down on!
