Cuban Pork Roast I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
This is a great recipe. The only change I made was to use white wine rather than sherry (didn't have it). I served it with Spicy Mango Salsa and Dirty Rice (both found on this site). The whole family raved about it and even went back for more. This is something I would definitely make for company, everything was easy but the results were impressive!

Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
Oh my gosh, this was so good! The only changes I made was to use cubanelle peppers instead of green (too expensive this time of year), red kidney beans instead of black, and 1 tsp of ground chipotle chili pepper instead of the 2 tsp of annatto - it's what I had on hand. I served it as a side dish to the Cuban Pork Roast and Spicy Mango Salsa recipes also found on this site. Will definitely make again. Thank you, Jen!

Spicy Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
ooooh, so good!!! Like others i used canned peaches because of the time of year. I also used cilantro instead of the basil and jalepano pepper rather than the serrano. I served it as an accompaniment to the Cuban Pork Roast and Dirty Rice - recipes both found on this site. My kids raved about dinner that night and couldn't stop from going back for more! Will be making this again - thanks for sharing!

Honey Lime Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2006
I really liked these wings. The lime gave them a nice tangyness and the honey kept them from being too sour. What a great combination. A nice change from the usual. Thanks!!!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
This was good, I especially liked the fact that the ingredients called for were things I already had in my cupboard. I used this sauce for Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas found on this site.

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
Well, as other people have said, it was very time consuming but worth it in the end. Everyone loved these. I think next time I'll use a stewing hen or chicken legs to cut down on the cost. I made the 10 minute enchilada sauce found on this site. It went with it quite well I thought. For some reason I got double the amount of enchilads even though I followed the recipe, which was great since everyone got their fill. I will definitely make these again.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
I was looking for something quick and easy to go with Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas (from this site). This recipe did the trick. I didn't use the jalpeno but know it would've been a nice addition if I'd had one. I stirred in the cilantro just before serving and squeezed a fresh lime over all at the end. I found it gave it that little extra zing.

B.L.A.T. Wraps

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
I did alter this recipe just a little. Instead of tortillas I used pita (warmed in the microwave 15 sec for easy wrapping and pliability), instead of shredded lettuce I used 1 large lettuce leaf to line the pita so it wouldn't get soggy, and instead of ranch dressing I used my homemade taziki sauce. We absolutely LOVED these! I never would've thought of putting avocados in your basic BLT. Thanks for the inspiation, Christina!

Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
This makes a real nice summer dish. I love how versatile it is...you can really use just about any fish and any combination of vegetables. I was looking for a way to serve up some frozen boxed haddock fillets and used this recipe. I didn't have mushrooms or zucchini but did have yellow and orange bell pepper and asparagus. So with the red tomato, it made a beautiful looking dish. I also had some fresh basil and lemon thyme growing so used that instead of the dried basil. With a side of rice (cooked in chicken stock and some chopped green onions stirred in afterward) it made a complete meal. The only down-side was that I didn't make enough! Everyone liked it and it went fast.

Hot Chicken Liver and Fennel Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
I liked this dish as did my two boys (I had my doubts about them but made it anyway). I too was looking for something different to do with fennel and thought this looked good...and talk about healthy! Liver and spinach in one dish! I didn't have capers but substituted with green olive tapenade that was on hand. I also didn't use as much oil but otherwise stuck to the recipe as written. It was quick and easy to make and definitely will make it again.

Dee's Roast Pork for Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
I also threw this in the slow cooker (since its a perfect way to make succulent meats).I didn't add any liquid and there was just the right amount of juice to add back into to the pork once I shredded it. I used a 3 lb. roast so only used 1 can of green chilies. I only had a couple of tbsp of chili powder and no taco seasoning so I improvised by throwing in a bunch of stuff I had on hand: the chili powder, cumin,paprika,seasoning salt,chipotle powder,oregano and even a pinch of cloves and of course plenty of minced garlic. Sorry, I don't know the exact amounts, I rarely measure anything - just add what I think is right, but it was a lot of spice if that's any help.(probably equivilent to a package & a half of taco seasoning though.) I also added a minced onion. Since I got late starting it I cooked it on high for about 5 hrs. I combined this recipe with another on this site (Mexican Style Shredded Pork) and served it on top of rice and black beans (with lime juice and cilantro stirred in after it was cooked). It turned out GREAT...just the right amount of spiciness with a lot of flavor. Will definitely be making this many, many times! It was so easy AND inexpensive. Thanks for sharing.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I made these for Thanksgiving dinner - potatoes are always my contribution and I usually whip them with garlic added in but I thought that since thankgiving is really about the harvest, this recipe seemed fitting and worth a try. I didn't add the cheese since it wouldn't be a great mix with gravy but would definetly use it another time for a regular supper. The only thing I could find fault with is that I didn't taste the jalepenos at all. I think next time I'll add it at the end when mashing (along with the garlic as well). I also added a couple of thinly sliced green onions and used garlic butter. It was a real hit with the family... at first they were dissapointed that it wasn't the whipped, but once they took their first bites they really liked it - got a lot of compliments and no complaints.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
This is a great base recipe and for that I give it 4 stars. You can really add whatever seasoning and beans you want....there's a lot of room for play. I added some garlic, chili powder, a little salt, cilantro and lime juice. Instead of the tomato with chilis I used a little can of salsa verde. With those additions I would rate at 5 stars. I haven't tried freezing them yet but I really hope they come out well as that would be a BIG help with lunches. Thanks Melissa....and I'll be passing this on to my step-mother since she's vegetarian now. (You'll never miss the meat with this recipe).

Marinated Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
This was ok, I followed the recipe exactly (rare for me) and found the flavours to be very subtle, which is okay for someone who likes that, but I like flavours that make you sit up and take notice. I might play with it a little next time, maybe add some fresh rosemary and lemon thyme.

Kielbasa Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
This was a great recipe to use up the leftovers I had from previous nights dinners. I didn't use the sausage this time since I used leftover turkey breast instead. I also didn't need the eggs because the rice I used was the sticky calrose I had leftover from making sushi (which is also where the shredded carrots came from). It reminds me of the fried rice from the vietnamese restaurant with the chinese sausage and shrimps (instead of kiebasa). My kids absolutely loved it, so I will definitely be making this again. (And I won't wait for leftovers from other meals either).

Roasted Curried Chicken with Couscous

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
I really liked this, it reminds me very much of the chicken at the ethiopian restaurant that I love. I liked the couscous but my kids didn't very much, maybe it's the texture. So next time I'll substitute it for basmati rice instead (like the restaurant). The spices are just right, flavour-wise. As for the amount of spices this recipe makes, SunnyByrd is right, this will stretch easily to accomodate more chicken. Oh ya, I used whole chicken legs instead of the whole chicken and baked them for an hour at the recommended temperature. I also didn't have lemon so used lime instead. Very good, I'll most definitely be making this again!

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I had to make a few changes due to time constrains and lack of ingredients but nothing that would have altered the taste very much, so I can confidently give this recipe the 5 stars I think it deserves. I cooked it on top of the stove in a cast iron pot on slow heat for a couple of hours. The beans softened up just fine. I didn't have the ham or bacon, but used a one and a half pound pork loin roast, cubed, and added a little liquid smoke. I didn't have a fresh jalapeno, so substituted a can of salsa verde. I only used about 4 cups of water though so that it would be thicker, like a stew. Served over basmati rice...made a very nice meal.

Belle's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
These were very good. I agree with most of the other reviewers though...I think the white sugar would have just made it way too sweet (which is the only reason I gave this recipe 4 stars). I did add the 1/2 cup of brown sugar though, and I think it has just the right amount of sweetness. I also added some fresh minced garlic and used spicy Italian sausage. I liked the combo of sweet with the heat. Thanks for the recipe...very good.

Moroccan Salmon Cakes with Garlic Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I love this recipe and have made these cakes quite a few times. And nutritionally, I think they're a good choice, although the fat content appears to be quite high, but that's probably due to the mayonnaise, so maybe using light mayo would cut down considerably with that. But if you click on 'view detailed nutrition' you'll see just how good for you these are. I don't change a thing except to add the eggs as a whole (not just the yolks) and I've had no problem with the patties falling apart. The mayonnaise sauce really makes it special so for anyone who decides to skip it, I think you're missing out. For a change, tzatziki would also be a great choice. Very good!

Steamed Zucchini

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Wow, this surprised me. I needed something really quick and easy since dinner was basically ready but I had no side dish prepared yet. This couldn't have been simpler! Just added a little S & P to top it off. Love the garlic. Thanks for the recipe!
