Spicy Scarborough Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
I marinated some thin sliced, boneless, skinless chicken breasts in this for about 4 hours. Then I skewered them on kebabs and my husband grilled them. The only things I changed were: I used a jalapeño instead of a habanero because I have so many and I need to use them before they are bad, and I added a splash of Worcestershire sauce. The marinade smelled heavenly and tasted delicious from what I could tell... But mostly what I tasted was charred meat because that's what happens to any food left alone for too long with my husband and a grill... I think it would have been 5 star otherwise. So I'll have to try it again and keep better tabs on the king of the grill. ;)

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
I didn't think my husband would be interested in a veggie burger, he's definitely carnivorous, but he loved this and got excited that we had leftovers and so we ate these twice in one week. I did add some carrots, corn and green beans that I put in the food processor just because I wanted to get some extra veggies in there. Of course the vegetables that I added meant that I had more volume but it still went farther than I thought it would. It made 4 HUGE patties. I seriously think i could have made them half as big. I baked 2 in the oven and froze the other 2. They stayed together better after being frozen. Either way they were tasty!

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
Delicious. I added some red and green bell pepper in it because I had some left over that I needed to use before they went off. Simple recipe that did not disappoint!

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
I browned it before baking but other than that I followed the recipe. I used Franzia Merlot instead of a burgundy (yeah, I'm fancy). I thought it turned out nicely. I like the taste of red wine in my food but I can see how you might not like it if you don't like wine...

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
My husband and I both enjoyed this. It is different than anything I had done before with chicken but now I use this marinade all the time!

Lemony Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
This is so simple and yet every bit as good as what you will pay a lot of money for at a fancy seafood joint. With the right bottle of wine and setup you could really impress a date. My husband doesn't need to know how easy it was to make, right?

Cabbage and Kielbasa

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
I just went ahead and used Boar's Head sauerkraut instead of cabbage and wine/vinegar and of course served it with spicy mustard! My husband was skeptical but he tried it and discovered that he really likes it.

Southern Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
I've made pulled pork in the crock-pot many times in many different ways, some more successful than others. This is up there in my top two favorites. It was a hit with the hubby too. It works really well for when you are serving to people who don't agree on sauce because it is not cooked in any so I can have my spicy southern and my husband can have his mustard based.

Fettuccini Carbonara

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
My husband wanted to try this. It was a little too rich for my personal taste. I remember thinking that I would never put that much bacon into something but I wanted to make it per the recipe. I should have listened to my gut (no pun intended) because it made me physically sick (bad acid reflux because I was very pregnant). I still give it 4 stars because my husband really liked it and it turned out exactly like it was supposed to. It is one of the truest to traditional carbonara recipes I could find... it was my own fault for eating rich, creamy, greasy comfort foods while pregnant.

Quick and Easy Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
I made a big batch of this and split it up into portions for my husband to take to work for lunch. Throw some browned and drained ground beef in it and some okra and he swears it could be his grandma's "secret recipe."

Slow Cooker Chicken Marrakesh

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
My husband and I loved this! Sometimes I find myself in a cooking rut where a lot of the food we eat has similar ingredients and spices, especially if it comes from the crock pot. This recipe breaks that cycle. I pretty much made it true to the recipe except that I really don't measure things out so I probably put more spices in than it called for.
