Shrimp Scampi III

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
The easiest company-worthy dish I've come across. The sauce was the perfect consistency for clinging to the shrimp and lingering on the tongue - and looked glossy like the magazine photos to boot! I gave this 5 stars with slight modifications: left the minced garlic in the dish and added a dash each of Season-All and lemon pepper and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Fabulous! Thanks for the submission.

City Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Almost didn't try this, since I can pan-fry breaded pork chops any time. But this recipe was a real hit; even my picky son ate some! The only change I made was to add some onion and garlic powders to the flour and to the pork as it cooked. Easy and delicious!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
All I can say is, this is IT! We love salmon and have been searching for the perfect recipe. I did the foil packets since we don't have a grill, and it was delicious! Extra stars for ease of preparation too. Thank you!

Pumpkin Walnut Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
NOT for bake sales (too soupy), so I'm having to keep this for myself (oh, poor me!) I mixed some of the cake mix in with the pumpkin, baked it longer than specified and it still wasn't of a consistency that could be cut into bars. I used pecans and it worked well, although I'm sure walnuts would be great. Will definitely pull this out at thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
A big hit with everyone in the house, and that's saying something. My teen would have preferred them fried, but they are so much healthier this way that I wouldn't change a thing. I used two BIG potatoes and cut them in sixths or smaller. I left one unpeeled and used paprika, adding garlic salt and rosemary per others' suggestions. The other potato I peeled (then had to use quickly, as it seemed to want to turn brown), and used brown sugar and a little garlic salt. Some of my family preferred them this way, although I liked the savory ones better. Microwaving them about 3 minutes before slicing made them easier to slice but a bit messy in a couple of places due to being too soft to handle well...will probably skip this next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

Zesty Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I give this recipe 5 stars for the flavor return on your time investment. I was looking for a recipe like the "Chicken Italian" my mom used to make. I only made a few changes: Used chicken breasts b/c that's what I had; marinated the chicken for about 30 in. in Mojo Criollo b/c my husband really enjoys the kick; and used packaged, pre-sliced potates. To save washing a bowl, I also just sprinkled the lemon, lime, and dressing over everything before covering and baking. After 45 minutes, I sprinkled shredded Italian cheese, Italian seasoning, and baked uncovered a few minutes more. Yum yum!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I make this all the time and just realized that I'd never rated it. It's easy, delicious, and quick - mix up the topping before you start the fish under the broiler or you'll end up overcooking it. This is a forgiving recipe - after making it a couple of times, I don't measure the ingredients any more, and I can substitute seasonings depending on what I have on hand or am in the mood for. Thanks for a great weeknight family pleaser!

Different Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Another happy family. I had 3 quite large chicken pieces and pounded them a bit. I was out of stuffing but it was good anyway, and the leftovers were great the next day. Thanks!

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
I loved these! So easy too. I used thawed frozen scallops, and my only mistake was not drying them well after rinsing, as another reader suggested. The topping would be awesome on other seafood as well. Thanks!

Summertime Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Delish and moist tilapia! Couldn't find a shallot, so used onion, and used a tiny bit of cooking wine since I had no tequila, but kept everything else the same. A forgiving recipe and I think it would be good on other fish and maybe poultry? Thanks!

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
My husband, the meat lover, gave this a big thumbs up. The marinade was very flavorful for such a simple ingredient list. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe!

Quinoa and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This was much better than the only other vegetarian chili recipe I've tried. I think the chipotle pepper added depth and warmth. I left out the jalapeno to suit my family's taste. I also had to leave out the red and green peppers, since my hubby can't eat them, so I should have added something else...Mexican chili powder maybe? I also think an 8-oz. can of tomato sauce and a can of sliced carrots would be great, but that's a matter of taste. Despite the quibbles, I'm giving it 5 stars for introducing me to my favorite new product: quinoa! Thanks for the recipe!

Super Simple Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
Have to echo the others...5 stars for easy, elegant, and delicious! My salmon was a thick center cut, so I had to turn down the heat and cook a little longer for doneness. I used sea salt, and a bit less based on recommendations. Also used half olive oil and half butter. I started serving from the thinner side while the thicker side finished, and I had a hard time not wolfing mine down right at the stove. Thanks so much!

Roasted Asparagus with Herbes de Provence

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
I just munched my way through half a bunch of roasted asparagus. It was delicious, and so easy! My favorite kind of recipe. Thanks. P.S. I agree that the bowl wasn't necessary; I just placed the asparagus, drizzled and sprinkled and stuck it in the oven.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
I gave this recipe 5 stars because I think it would be great as written; I was looking for a recipe I could modify to be non-dairy and this was pretty good. I used Almond milk, Smart Balance butter, and added almost 1/4 cup sugar (to our taste). These were fairly easy to handle, although didn't flip too easily, and the taste/texture were ok with our toppings. Maybe less melted butter next time, since I needed plenty in the skillet to prevent sticking. Thanks!

Semi-Homemade Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
I assume this would have been 5 stars if I had followed the recipe exactly! My kids did the shopping for me and got the Stove Top stuffing mix, and I just went with it. Liking softer stuffing, I used about 48 ounces of chicken broth, and it seemed too soft so I left it in the oven at least 20 extra minutes and it ended up with a pretty good texture but a slightly burned flavor. Will try again with the bagged stuffing mix and I'll bet it will be great.

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
Hubby loves this one. Don't overcook! Edited to add: I've made this recipe a dozen times now, and it's my go-to quick dinner. Throw rice in the cooker (or pasta in a pot), start the chicken, and both are done by the time I make the salad and heat the other sides. I typically don't change anything, but if I want extra sauce I increase the wine, with or without some chicken broth. Reliable and quick - what's not to love? Thanks!!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
Made this exactly as written, except for slicing the carrots into fairly thin coins. I didn't have 8 hours to cook it, so I cooked it for 6 hours with a combination of high and low heats, mostly high. Everyone enjoyed it and the veggies were a perfect texture. I wish that I had made the creamy horseradish sauce recommended here by others; I think it would have been great. Thanks for the recipe!

Spaghetti Sauce III

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
My husband isn't Italian, but he always liked it when I made spaghetti with his mom's homemade sauce....until I lost her recipe. He pronounced this version very good. High praise indeed. It's by far the simplest recipe I've found that we like. The only thing I changed was to cut up the stewed tomatoes with kitchen shears...oh, and was out of dried basil so I used fresh from the garden. If you like your sauce meaty, as my hubby does, no other changes are recommended. I personally might add a bit more tomato paste. Thanks for submitting!
