Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
This was good and incredibly easy to make. I had to add more dill to suit my tastes but overall we enjoyed it. I think next time I make it I won't bother with the added expense of fresh dill as I think dried would work just fine for this dish.

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
These were really good. The only change I made was I added a little garlic powder to the breadcrumbs. I didn't need nearly as much egg wash or breadcrumb mixture as it called for so I'll be cutting back on both of these next time.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
This is excellent though I did add quite a lot more than a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
This was good though I did add a little sour cream to it as my daughter likes it that way.

Thighs on Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I made a few changes such as cutting back to one cube of bouillon and using 2 cups of chicken broth in place of the water. I also omitted the Italian seasoning and used poultry seasoning both in the rice as well as on the chicken. It turned out great and was definitely a change from the ordinary.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
After reading all the reviews I came up with this - I browned the ground beef with the chopped onion then added 1 jar of beef gravy and stirred in about a handful of each: frozen corn, green beans, green peas & carrots. I topped with homemade mashed potatoes with very little milk added so they were thick. Then baked as directed. My family really enjoyed it, especially my teenage daughter who hates everything these days.

Simple Sicilian Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I don't know if my balsamic vinegar was bad or what but this just didn't turn out as I expected. Maybe I'll purchase a new bottle and try it again sometime as I can't believe what I had was what got all the rave reviews.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
These were a big hit around my house. Although a little messy and I used a ton more coconut than called for it was well worth the work and mess. Only thing I'll change next time is I'll gently salt the shrimp before dredging in the flour as I thought they needed it.

Deep Fried Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I have to agree with everyone else, it was very bland and had way too much egg for my taste. I downsized the recipe by 1/2. After the first batch came out I added more flour and about 1/4 cup cornmeal to cut down on the egg, I also added cajun seasoning to the batter to add some flavor. They were eaten but I think I'll keep searching for something that suits our tastes better.

Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This was a gppd base to start with. I did make several changes such as I added a small amount of chopped onion and sauted that with the celery in some butter. Then I added the garlic (5 cloves...we love garlic) and the sliced carrots and cooked for about 1 minute. To that I added 2 cans of beef broth and enough water to come to 2 quarts. Then the tomato sauce along with a can of diced tomatoes, the beef bouillon cubes, the recommended spices which I also added 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, dash of cayenne pepper, dash of tabasco sauce and a little Worcestershire sauce. Added the meatballs after about 5 minutes. I used rigatoni noodles as I didn't have any macaroni on hand and added a can of corn (drained) when these were added along with a squirt of ketchup for the sweetness. Everyone in my household loved this soup. The only thing I'll do differently next time is add additional carrots, maybe add some frozen green beans and/or diced zucchini for some extra veggies.

Spicy Spaghetti Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
This was pretty good though I think next time I'll cut back on the green olives a bit and maybe add some chopped green bell pepper.

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I really liked this recipe though I used dill relish instead of sweet to suit our tastes. I also cut back on the lemon juice because of the dill.

Migas II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
This was really good to be so simple. I added just a little chopped onion (wish I had added more)when cooking the tortillas. I also scrambled the eggs before putting them in the pan and added a couple of dashes of hot sauce to them. Served them with a spinkle of grated cheese and more hot sauce. My husband really enjoyed them. Next time I'll experiment with a few other items. Maybe some bell pepper, more onions, sausage or chorizo.

Rice 'n' Egg Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
This was ok. No one in my household really liked it but me. If I make it again I will have to play with it to suit my taste.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
This was pretty good. Nothing spectacular but much better than steamed. Of course, I had to bake mine at 350 degrees and about 45 min. because of another dish I was cooking at the time.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
This was good although it came out a little dry/tough. Of course this could have been the cut of meat (it was cleanly trimmed). Next time I will definitely take the suggestions made by others and sear it before roasting. The potatoes were fabulous! I did make a couple of alterations to the potatoes - instead of using garlic powder I used 3 cloves of fresh minced garlic, substituted finely chopped green onions in place of the chives and added some parsley flakes to give it some color.

Blender Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
This is a good recipe when you're in a crunch. I followed the recipe exactly except I did add about 1/4 tsp. more garlic powder to suit our tastes. Though I would cut back to 2/3 cup vinegar especially if you're serving immediately.
