Macaroni and Cheese V

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I have always used Martha Stewart's recipe for mac and cheese until I found this one. Sorry Martha. This is much better. Before putting it in the oven I top with a cooked crumbled bacon. YUM! Other reviewers complained about the cheese sauce. I think that it's important to use a very good quality of chedder cheese. It makes all the difference in whether you have a creamy sauce or a lumpy sauce.

Easy Asparagus

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Good way to prepare asparagus. I didn't have lemon pepper so I used fresh lemon juice. I too omitted the whole wheat crackers.

Across the Border Tequila Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Easy to prepare and very, very tastey. Didn't have any chili powder so used red pepper flakes instead which gave it a nice kick. Best to use a clear tequila.

Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2005
Fantastic pesto! I used cashews since I didn't have pine nuts and 2 cloves of garlic instead of 4. I also added the parsley, and a bit of sea salt. I tossed the pesto with penne pasta, sun dried tomoatoes, and grilled chicken. All I can say is YUM! Thanks Valerie!

Sesame Crusted Mahi Mahi with Soy Shiso Ginger Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
If there were more stars offered, this recipe would get them. It is FANTASTIC! The sauce is out of this world good! I didn't use mahi mahi becuase it wasn't fresh, so I used orange roughy. I too was unable to find shiso leaves. I served the fish on a bed of jasmine rice (Allrecipe.com recipe) for a dinner party and everyone raved about it. This is my new favorite fish recipe.

Kiki's Borracho (Drunken) Beans

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
Awesome Beans! I made a double batch for a Tex-Mex party and everyone raved about them. I left the beer out because I didn't have one and the beans were great. I think that it is very important to use a good quality chicken stock. It adds so much flavor. I paired these beans with Spanish Rice Original (recipe on this site) and all I can say is YUM!

Batman's Best Caesar Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
The first time I made this dressing I didn't have the anchovy paste and thought it was very good. The second time I made it I used anchovy paste and WOW what a difference. I love this dressing!

No Name Orange Roughy

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Great recipe. I added a couple of cloves of fresh garlic with the green onions, then added the wine and tomotoes and allowed the liquid to reduce by half before adding the fish. I only had two fillets so I added some fresh shrimp, amd boy did they come out good. I too substituted the olives for capers and ommitted the feta - only becuase I didn't have any. This really made a great meal. The kids loved it too. Can't wait to make this dish for my next dinner party.

Pecan Salmon Roll

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
I found this recipe to be okay - nothing too exciting. I used a high-end can salmon in the hopes that the taste would be great, but like someone else commented "it tasted like tuna fish. I won't waste $8.00 on salmon to make this again. Sorry.

Parmesan Chicken II

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
Good recipe. I too reduced the amount of cheese and added garlic powder, fresh rosemary and thyme. I also baked the legs on a rack to prevent the bottom of them from getting soggy.

Quick and Easy Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2005
Pretty good for a quick and easy bread. My husband and kids liked it as well. To prevent crumbling, cut the bread in thick slices while it is still hot. Leftovers are good toasted.

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2005
Very tastey recipe. I also reduced the amount of honey and butter to 1/4 cup. Other people commented that 4 teaspoons of curry seemed too much. I think that it depends on the type of curry powder you use. I use red curry powder which is a little stronger than yellow curry powder and used 2 1/2 teaspoons. I also took other's suggestions and added a pinch of cumin. Nice touch. I paired the chicken with Jeera Fried Rice (recipe on this site) and it was very good. This recipe is a keeper.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
I have made this recipe many times and it has become a favorite in my house. To make the sauce more saucey I double the amount of chicken stock and wine. I also reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water and add it if needed.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
Great Recipe! I have made this several times and have not used boneless chicken breasts. I sautee chicken pieces (dark) then mix the remaining incredients in a bowl and add to the chicken and simmer until chicken is done. The meat is so tender that it practically falls off the bone. I recently made this dish for a dinner party and had three requests for the recipe.

Easy Focaccia

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2005
This is a 10-star recipe. I too added the rosemary and cheese to the dry ingredients and sprinkled additional cheese on top. I couldn't believe how big the loaf turned out and thought that we would never be able to finish it all. Between 6 people and a bowl of infused olive oil, the loaf was gone.

Coq au Vin alla Italiana

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
Oh So Good! I followed the recipe to the letter and it is fantastic. My husband and kids loved it. They ate several slices of bread just to sop up the gravy. This is a keeper and will be a regular meal for my family.

Spanish Rice Original

Cheese Straws

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
Very good as a party appetizer with cocktails or everyday snack. My kids love having "homemade Goldfish. for thier snack" Very important that the cheese is at room temperature for it to cream easily. I tried using a piping bag and star tip, but dough was too thick and wouldn't come out. Will try using a cookie press next time.
