Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2001
What a great recipe, and oh-so-easy too! This was one of the best cream sauces I've ever made. It was a bit runny tho', so you might want to thicken it up w/ some flour or do what we did - we blackened the chicken in a hot skillet and then finished it up with a quick broil in the oven, removed the chix, and then poured the sauce into the skillet to scrape up all the blackened goodness and also thicken it. We also added some Cajun seasoning (abt 1 tsp) to the sauce. If I cld give this more than 5 *'s, I would! :)

Hot and Spicy Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
A wonderful and delicious find! We sliced our tofu into 1 x .5 inch rectangles and about 3 milimeters thick. Instead of just browning, we slightly deep fried it so that it was nice and crispy on the outside - not as healthy, but the texture is so much better! We also added about 1 tbs. of honey to the sauce to give it a bit more sweetness, and a handful of 'frying mushrooms' (my store carries this prepacked variety of shrooms best for frying, but shiitakes would work as well). This is a definite keeper of a recipe!

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Delicious, kid friendly, quick go to recipe. We used our favorite frozen meatballs to make this even simpler. Taste the sauce after it's mixed but before you put the cornstarch in - you should get a good idea of how it will taste when done and you can adjust accordingly. I only say this bec there were other reviews noting the sauce was too salty or sweet. I found it to be about right but did add some of pineapple juice for more flavor (I used fresh pineapple too). Definitely making this again!

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
This reminds me of a similar cucumber dish my Mom makes - this one's is just a bit sweeter. My mom also includes thinly sliced red onion in her's - it adds a nice little variety in texture. A deliciously light side dish.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
Very simple to make indeed and quite delicious! We used the leftover glaze as a sauce to drizzle on top (heated it on the stove until boiling first). We also baked the fish on broiler pan so that the skin would crisp up as well. Definite keeper!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
All I can say is that my eggplant LOATHING husband LOVED it and raved about how he would eat this over and over again! :) I sliced up the eggplant extra thin (2 mm) to get them crispier and used whole grain bread crumbs to keep it a bit healthier, with a dash of salt added for flavor.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Delicious!!! My husband proclaimed this to be his favorite salad to date! We used Danish Bleu cheese instead of Roquefort, and only used a 1/4 cup of olive oil to keep it a bit lighter and it came out divine. A definite keeper!

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
For convenience and taste, you can't beat this recipe! Combined suggestions from multiple other reviews, and made the following tweaks. Used light soy. Salt & peppered the drumsticks. Kept skin on them, but browned them well in some olive oil (so my cooking time in the crockpot is reduced) before transferring to the crockpot. Cooked 1 hour on high. Then 1 hour on low. Added onion, carrots & potatoes. Finished up 1 more hour on low. Served over jasmine rice with green beans for a side. Chicken was every bit as fall-off-the-bone tender and the family gobbled it up! This will be a staple weeknight go-to for sure!

Orange Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
We were out of everything but essentials and pantry items and I was looking for a baked good this morning and decided to give this a go. They were great - super easy and as I said, can be made with what's available on hand. Next time I will 'well' the marmalade bec some of it spilled out making them looking rather messy. I added a bit of orange juice and zest for added flavor. Also, for my 2nd daughter's dairy allergy, I substituted rice milk for milk and omitted the butter from her struesel. I also used white wheat flour instead of regular. Finally, made a couple with plum preserves for my older daughter who's not fond of marmalade. Any preserve would go well with this recipe but I agree w/ the other reviewer that if you like your muffins sweet, serve some jelly on the side as these are not very sweet at all.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
So pleased to have found a versatile recipe for granola bars. Here are a few comments... 1) Done 'as is' the recipe comes out more cereal bar consistency than granola bar. I like mine a little crunchier so with the second batch, I formed them into bars before baking and they came out perfect! I saw a few reviewers doubling up the applesauce, so be aware before you decide to do this. 2) In lieu of the walnuts & fruits, you can substitute the same 1.5 cups of anything. We've tried mango with shredded and diced coconut and choc chip and coconut so far - delicious! 3) Taste before adding egg for sweetness. I actually only put 2 tbs. sugar and less honey bec I was using dried fruit which was already sweet. Plus, the 'raw dough' is delicious bec it has the crunch of the Grape Nuts :)

Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
Fabulous recipe... so flavorful with minimal ingredients and prep/cook time. Pork dries out so easily but this was moist and delicious. I doubled the spices and that was just about enough for 2 lbs of tenderloin. You may want to taste the spice rub and adjust for salt depending on how salty you want it. I may try with thick cut, lower sodium bacon next time around. Try it, you won't be disappointed! Served with roasted potato, carrot, brussel sprouts and mushrooms.

Baked Parmesan-Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Great kid friendly recipe. Season the chicken well with salt, pepper and garlic powder for better flavor. I also used dried herbs so I more than halved the amount added. Finally, pound out your chicken for a much faster cook time.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2004
This is our favorite Indian curry recipe! It's wonderful - so flavorful, easy to prepare and delicious beyond words! If you like Indian food and red curries, try this recipe! We serve it on white rice or with Indian 'naan' bread (you can find this frozen and you can just heat in a pan, in most Asian grocers). Also, we used 'Patak's' brand Ginger Garlic Paste - we found it in just our regular grocery store (though our's has a pretty comprehensive international foods section). *Note: I'd cut down a bit on the garam marsala depending on brand - the one I used was a little bit salty.

Pan-Fried Steak with Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2005
Very good indeed. Our only tip is - if you are not making your own chicken broth, use broth that comes in boxes and not cans. Otherwise, when the sauce reduces, you will be left with a slightly metallic taste using canned broth.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
Delicious! My husband isn't usually very keen on fish but proclaimed that this was the best fish recipe we've ever made. Just get a nice fresh cut of salmon and you can't go wrong. I followed the recipe to a tee (except canola instead of peanut oil) for the marianade, and reserved the leftover marianade to thicken on the stove with a dash of honey to serve on/with the fish.

Aloo Matar

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
Loved this recipe! We used spicy Hungarian paprika, so I reduced it by 1/2 tsp and we added 1/2 cup more peas after reading some of the other reviews. It turned out fantastic! I think a lot of how this turns out has to do with the ginger garlic paste. We used 'Patak's Original' brand 'Spicy Ginger & Garlic Marianade & Grill Sauce Tandoori Mild'. If you are from areas where you have HEB Central Market stores - that is where we found our's. We also use it in the Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken) recipe from this site and it is just fabulous!

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Delectable and so simple to make! These cookies are a keeper. I saw the 'not really a favorite of the kids' description and wonder if that was a typo because I'm not sure what there is not to like - my girls LOVED them! Note: mine were pretty soft and chewy, so you have to be a chewy-not-crispy cookie person.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Excellent, quickie recipe. I used only about 5 chicken breasts and found the marinade to be about right (leaving it for 24h). Added pineapples to the skewers for the kids, and used red instead of white onions. No other modifications were necessary! Served with coconut rice and veggie side. Great weeknight dinner.

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
Tasted fabulous. I would probably add some oil or something to thin the dressing out a little as it was a bit pasty. But delicious nonetheless! I actually made extra of this honey chicken recipe and simply made the salad with leftovers http://allrecipes.com/recipe/yummy-honey-chicken-kabobs/detail.aspx

Blackened Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Fantastic! The amount of butter was a turn off for me, so instead, we just seared with olive oil and then completed with a pat of butter on top right before removing from the pan. I also added garlic powder to the seasoning. Quick and easy weeknight dinner!
