Spaghetti Sauce III

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Thanks Angie- We happen to like the "tomatoe-y" taste, I used both sliced and diced tomatoes from jars. Also fresh garlic and mushrooms with a splash of red wine. We didn't feel it needed the extra paste, though. It came out very fresh and Italian tasting. Next time I think I'll try using fresh herbs and see what happens.

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: May 16, 2007
This was great, my husband absolutely loved this. I was afraid it would be too spicy, but it was just perfect, served with Grecian pork tenderloin recipe from this site, as well as Greek green beans.

Sour Cream Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
We pretty much followed the recipe but added some chopped garlic, sliced mushrooms and about 1/4 cup white wine, only used half the chicken stock, increased the flour and butter to 2 tablespoons each. The consistency was perfect! Served over noodles -- excellent!

Sauerbraten Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
Flavor was great, I used leftover sirloin tip roast cut into chunks (it was way too rare, so I marinaded for a couple of hours, and cooked as written), added 1/4 cup red wine and extra vinegar & sugar to make more "sauce" (our preference), I left off the raisins, and served with mashed potatoes and red cabbage. Just about as good as regular sauerbraten that you have to marinade for days, but so easy and quick with leftover meat! Thank you, this is a regular. I'll definitely try with egg noodles next time.

Pita Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
These are GREAT! I added some roasted red pepper, used green olives instead of black, and parm/romano. Perfect late lunch for two on a Saturday afternoon.

Braciola II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
What a wonderful sauce! We used top round instead, and added bread crumbs and parm/romano to the meat roll, but other than that, followed exactly. This just turned out perfectly, and we were going crazy with the good smells throughout the house. This is a great one to impress your friends and family!

Chicken Pasta Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
This was great! How unusual at first bite, but delicious. Didn't have any frozen corn so I thawed out frozen peas. I also used small pasta shells instead. Wonderful leftovers, too.

Boy did we love this! Thanks to spiderfarmer for the topping tip (mushrooms, brandy & shallots), that really made it just perfection. My husband was most impressed.

Amazing Greek Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
This was truly amazing, we loved it. We cooked cubed chicken breast along with the garlic and onion, stirred penne pasta into the skillet. The blend of tomatoes, capers and olives drove us out of our minds. We'll be making this again...and again...

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
This was just perfect for a Saturday afternoon late lunch for two with a bottle of Chardonnay! I managed to scrounge around the house and find most of the ingredients, and had to use a few substitutions. I only had frozen spinach and jarred diced tomatoes (Those DelMonte sliced or diced tomatoes in jars are wonderful). I didn't have any feta cheese, but I had read a similar recipe that used blue cheese, which I served on the side as an optional topping. I also had slivered roasted almonds and sliced kalamata olives(as recommended by others)on the side for toppings. Thank you Suki!

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
We absolutely loved this, cooked on the charcoal grill--outstanding. This satay is a hundred times better than what we've had at a local French-Vietnamese restaurant. I served with the Indonesian Spiced Rice and Asian slaw (both on this site). What a great meal!

Indonesian Spiced Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
Boy did we love this, served with the Indonesian Chicken Satay from this site. I was nervous that my husband wouldn't like the heat from the jalapenos,but he was crazy about it, and he's not even much of a rice fan. Thank you!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
We went crazy for this, I substituted ground chipolte chile pepper for the cumin (husband thinks he dislikes). A very welcome break from Spanish rice or yellow rice! Thank you.

Savory Lemon Limas

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
I'm proud to be the first on this one. What a great way to have plain ole frozen limas, my husband isn't much of a veggie man, but he had seconds, and was eyeballin' my plate, too. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. Cathy, thank you!

Tangy Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This really was THE best- followed the recipe exactly, except we cooked on the charcoal grill, and taking Anna H.'s advice, made my own Italian dressing mix as posted on this site. The result was just wonderful. Thank you!

Dilled Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2007
I used leftover tangy fajita chicken (from this site), penne pasta and dried dill (all I had), and this was just outstanding! LOVE the dressing- I bet it's amazing with tuna pasta salad. Thanks so much! Making this again, I have to say, just add the dressing gradually until it suits your taste, unless you like a really "wet" pasta salad.

Tangy Sliced Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
This was a great alternative to plain old bbq sauce coated pork leftovers. After reading reviews, I decided it was best to just follow the recipe as written, I was glad I did, too. My husband went nuts! Thank you.

So easy, elegant and delicious. Easy to cook to taste for me and my husband (he's a rare man, I'm more on the medium side) Perfect with sour cream & chive mashed potatoes from this site. Thank you.
