Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
Really enjoyed this. Threaded the marinated chicken onto skewers and grilled outside. Served over a bed of basmati rice with the sauce poured over and naan on the side. My 16 month old daughter liked it and it was nice to introduce her to cuisine from around the world. Expand her tastebuds young!

Johnny's Spice Rub

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
This is potent stuff and really packed some flavor into the ribs I cooked low and slow for 6 hours before applying BBQ sauce. The rub and BBQ sauce went rather well together as the spice from the rub complimented the sweet and smoky sauce. Recommendations: there is some mouth tingle. For less mouth tingle, perhaps cut the paprika and black pepper back by half. Oh, I traded a tablespoon of paprika from smoked paprika, yum. Will make again, with a little less paprika and black pepper next time. Good rub, will have to try on steak.

Mexican Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
Wanted to like this one, but after giving it a few bites I decided that was more than enough. I went with my instinct and cut the cayenne in half, but it was quite spicy even halved; I did not find it enjoyable. Also, there is a faint gritty-ness to the mouth feel of this yogurt recipe, which I'm guessing comes from either the high amount of cinnamon and/or the cocoa powder. My husband only had a little taste and exclaimed "blech, it's got too much of something." It definitely does NOT taste anything like chocolate cheesecake, as stated in the description. Sorry, we did not care for this.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2014
Excellent taco filling. I suggest this to anyone who is learning to replace meaty meals with tasty meatless options either for health or to save money...this is not only tasty but extremely cheap to make, and lentils are a good source of fiber and protein too! I added organic frozen corn kernels and some black beans to the filling as well. Just be sure to check your package of lentils: mine called for 40 minutes of covered simmer time. I checked them at 30 minutes and they were still a tad hard so let them go the extra time. I don't think I'll ever make tacos with ground meat again!

Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2014
Ideal vanilla fro-yo. Tastes exactly like you expect it should. Sweet enough yet not too sweet and perfect vanilla flavor. Simple recipe is very easy to make with my Cuisinart ice cream maker and retained a nice soft consistency after many hours in the freezer.

Maria's Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2014
This is a fantastic rice! I went with my instincts and doubled the cumin and halved the salt. It would have been far too salty for us and our toddler especially. The bouillon provides plenty of salt. Skipped the serrano since I hadn't realized mine were no longer fresh enough. With these changes, I think this is the new go-to Mexi-rice recipe for our house! I'll have to try it with the chile next time.

Fajita Seasoning

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2014
Next time I will omit the sugar; my husband didn't like this seasoning blend because it was "too sweet." Other than that, the flavors were fine. I added the mix and cold water to cooked chicken, onions and peppers and it thickened up and coated nicely.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
I'm not sure what I did wrong because I followed the recipe to a "T" but the sauce separated when I added the butter and cream and it wasn't very appealing looking. Also, 1T of basil was WAAAAAY too much. I should've trusted my instinct on that one.

Mom's Texas Hash

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
This is a fantastic base recipe and I admit I tweaked a bit but the results were tasty. Instead of ground beef, I used Johnsonville Italian sausage. And since this recipe is perfect for whatever additions you desire, I added some black beans and corn and served it over mashed potatoes.

Amazing Muffin Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2014
These were pretty good; I'm not much of an egg person and I liked it better than I expected I would. I could not get all of the sausage to fit in the cups though, even cutting down on some of the cheese mixed in. Also, I made them with cupcake liners and I wish I would have skipped the liners. With a great nonstick pan the liners are not necessary and just stick to the food.

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
Rating is for the rub and salsa because I made this with pork chops instead of salmon. Rub was pretty good! Not very spicy, and not sure where the 'sweet' was because the salsa was bitter. we learned we do not like grapefruit salsa; for us it is best served with breakfast. Thanks for the try though.

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
This was very good. I dinged a star because, although good, the salsa was very plain so I ended up adding minced onion and garlic and a squirt of lime juice as well as a pinch of salt. The other reason for not giving 5* is I prefer my carnitas to be shredded pork. The flavor was fine and the cooking method was simple enough though - much faster than my usual crock pot pulled pork.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2014
Absolutely moist...BUT, the sliced bananas are unpleasant both aesthetically and texturally. Next time I will mash them up, which will better distribute the banana flavor as well. Oh, I skipped the nuts and added chocolate chips ;) UPDATE: I made this again! FIVE STARS with the banana mashed before being folded into the batter. I made 3 mini loaves with the intent to give some away but we ate it all, it was sooo good! This will be my go-to banana bread recipe now!

Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
YUMMMM! Good one, Alex! A little tricky dipping the berries as my filling shifted, so next time I will pop them in the fridge so the filling sets a bit before coating with chocolate.

Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
Perfect for chicken wonton tacos! As suggested in the footnotes, I added more sweet chili sauce...a LOT more! I didn't have red onion so I used scallions instead. Also, used a bagged blend of green and purple cabbages and carrot. There was plenty of dressing to coat a little more than 4 cups of slaw. Yum!

Hearty Minestrone

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
Very good! A touch spicy. I added more broth than called for, skipped the potato, and added carrot. Was better the second day, when I pulled it out of the fridge and removed the solid, spicy grease.

Sweet Baked Delicata Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
While the flavors on the glaze over the squash was excellent in flavor, its consistency was extremely viscous and unappealing once cooked. Because of the amount of dry ingredients in the honey, I was unable to drizzle it because it was just a sticky paste in the bowl, so added a little warm water to it. While trying to serve the squash, the glaze could be stretched a foot or longer! If I made this again, the glaze would need some major tweaking.

Roasted Delicata

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
It didn't dawn on me that olive oil wouldn't be the best to use for this until I noticed the smoke in the house...olive oil doesn't have a high enough smoke point to tolerate 400 degrees for 30 minutes. A butter/olive oil blend would work better and add to the flavor too. Also, I should've cooked it longer after flipping the squash because I would've like it a little bit more browned. Other than that-simple and excellent. Delicata has a delicious flavor on its own and a simple recipe like this lets that shine through.

Green Bean Artichoke Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
This was good, but there were too many soggy breadcrumbs and it gave the dish an unpleasant texture for me. The flavors were very good though, similar to stuffed artichoke as others mentioned. Perhaps 4 stars with far less breadcrumbs, and next time I'd use butter not oil.
