Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Very tasty...I'm already looking forward to having leftovers for lunch today! My husband really, really loved this. I liked it a lot as well, but would probably change up a few things in the future. First, it's called a brown rice casserole, but I didn't think there was nearly enough rice. I'd double the rice amount in the future. The carrot is also lost...not enough for flavor or even really color. I'd either added far more or omit entirely in the future. The swiss was good, but I think I'd like to try this with cheddar instead or in addition. Lastly, I think the chicken could be easily omitted to make this a vegetarian meal if so desired. This recipe is great as written, and I think it'll stand up to customization as well so I'm excited to try it again with my own spin. Thanks!

Crab Stuffed Haddock

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
Good! I used two large haddock fillets (over 1/2 lb a piece) and still used a full stuffing recipe so there was plenty left to put on top. I omitted the celery (personal preference) but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My husband suggested adding some crumbled bacon to this, which would probably be delicious and I'll give that a try next time I make this. Thanks for the recipe!

Sauteed Portobellos and Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
This was good. I would have rated it a 4, but my husband loved it and I always round up so a 5 it is. I thought there was too much spinach and wished there was more mushroom...I used 10 oz of portobellos. I followed the recipe exactly except I subbed parsley for basil. Thanks for the yummy side dish!

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
Fabulous, as titled. I actually liked these even more than I thought I would. My husband was also a fan. I added garlic powder and some parmesan cheese. Yum! We really like zucchini, a necessity for this recipe as it doesn't taste like a meatball sub but rather like really delicious zucchini. If you like zucchini, this recipe's a winner. Thanks!

Baked Paprika-Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
This tasted good, and smelled wonderful. I decreased cooking time to 50 minutes for very thick chicken breasts, so really keep an eye on the cooking time. Thanks for the recipe!

Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
Very good snack! I used salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Next time I'll definitely try the cayenne. These were fabulous right out of the oven, but didn't really stay as yummy, at least not on a humid day like today...they lost their crunch. I made a double batch, thinking they'd be good to snack on for a few days, but they're no where near as good today as they were last night. But fresh out of the oven: awesome! So just make what you think you'll eat right away and enjoy!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
Yum! This had a delightful taste. The pancakes were a little thicker than I'm used to, and maybe didn't come out quite as pretty as some other pancakes as a result. But you can't argue with the taste, which was wonderful. And an easy recipe, too! I threw some fresh blueberries in some, and served with blueberry sauce (from this site). Delicious! Thanks!

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
This was good, but it was a little too orange-y. I saw from other reviews that it gets better if you let it sit overnight, but I wanted this tonight to go with Good Old Fashioned Pancakes (from this site)...yep, breakfast for dinner! This was still quite yummy despite the slightly overpowering orange flavor. I did use fresh blueberries. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

SARA LEE® Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
Very good, a classic (I call it Egg in a Hole, since we all seem to have different names for it). Here's an extra tip: reserve the circle of bread. Once you've cracked the egg into the hole, press the extra bread circle into the white of the egg (both sides of the bread). Then cook the bread circle as you're cooking the "egg in a boat", and serve it with the circle on top of the yolk. Yummy! And PS to Sara Lee's marketing group: you're doing great! I've tried (and enjoyed) a few other Sara Lee recipes, and found myself looking for Sara Lee bread last time I was at the supermarket. My store doesn't carry it, but I'll keep an eye out! Thanks!

Milky Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
Oh dear, this is just not good. It actually made me feel sick. I don't know what went wrong..there are only 3 ingredients, all of which I like. But the quantities were all wrong...way too sweet with all that honey, and the vanilla! Yuck! It was SOOO overpowering. I just went back to check again that it really calls for a full teaspoon because that's just WAY too much. You know what the worst thing is? This smells DELIGHTFUL. Don't believe your nose. I took 4 sips, because I kept thinking it had to taste good when it smelled so good. My husband even came in from the other room to see what I'd made, and tried it despite my warning (he hated it, too). Sorry, but I think next time I'll stick with my own tried and true "recipe": omit the honey and vanilla from this recipe and serve ice cold, preferable with a chocolate chip cookie on the side.

Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
Yum, yum! I used ground chicken rather than ground beef, and if we're being honest, used a lot closer to half a pound of colby jack cheese rather than half a cup. Ummmm, cheese! I also added a diced onion to the meat mixture. This was quite good, and a fun idea. I agree with a previous reviewer: try it with the corn tortillas. I'm not normally a big fan of corn tortillas, but they were absolutely fabulous in this. I served this with sour cream and avocado on the side. Delicious! Thanks!

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
This was ok. My husband made this, so it's always a win if I don't have to cook! He only used red pepper, but otherwise followed the recipe. I'm not sure about the wine. I usually let my sausage coins continue to brown and saute. By adding the white wine, the coins didn't brown (just the outside was browned from the first step). We ate this on sub rolls with provolone cheese. My husband did say that the leftovers he had today for lunch had gotten even better. Thanks for the recipe.

Sour Cream Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
I served these with sweetened sour cream (1/2 c. sour cream, 1 Tbls. sugar, 1/8 teas. vanilla) and warm mixed berries. The flavor of these waffles was good, but it makes a very dense, heavy waffle. Another reviwer described it as sponge-y, and that's exactly right. My husband and I prefer a lighter, crispier waffle, so these weren't really to our taste. But if you like a heavy waffle, I'd highly recommend these. Thanks!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
Zesty-licious!! This was soooo good! I only used 2 chicken breasts, but made a half recipe of sauce. Before I shredded the chicken, it looked too saucy, but it was perfect after I shredded the chicken. I served this over mashed potatoes. I wish we had extra to eat as a sandwich tomorrow. Oh well, next time I'll know to make a full recipe! Thanks for the delightful recipe!

Chicken Melts

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
What a delicious lunch! I used far less mayo (but opted for a full fat version) and used monterey jack cheese. I loved the idea of mixing shredded cheese in instead of using sliced. I grilled these on the stove rather than baking. Even my 11-month-old boys loved it...I made them a half a sandwich before I added the mayo and they gobbled it down! I served this with tomatoes on the side, and I really wished that I'd put it on the sandwich. I think the sandwich could have used a little more zing: a little mustard, maybe some kind of fresh herb (parsley, basil? I'm not sure, I'll have to experiment). I also overstuffed my sandwiches (a half recipe made 2 and a half sandwiches for me) and it did get really goopy and leak out the edges. Good, though! Thanks!

Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
Yummy! I omitted the cilantro (personal preference) and went a little light on the onion. I made this as a side dish for Beef and Bean Chimichangas (from this site), but we ended up just using this as a topping instead. Very tasty, even if it wasn't quite as salad-y as I was expecting by the title of the recipe. It's more like an avocado salsa or chunky guacamole. Whatever you call it, it's good eats! Thanks for the recipe!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
Quite good, although let's just pretend it's called a beef and bean baked burrito. If that's what you're expecting, you won't be disappointed it's not a chimichanga. I fudged the veggie amounts (used 1 onion, 1 red pepper, and 1 can of corn rather than trying to use the exact amounts required in the recipe). Topped these with sour cream and Avocado Salad (from this site). Delicious! Thanks!

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
This was pretty good. I doubled the mushroom, onion, and garlic amounts, and I wish I'd doubled the spinach and feta amounts as well. The taste was good...I just like more of a "stuff" to pasta ratio. Thanks for the recipe!

Ashley's Chicken Katsu with Tonkatsu Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
The chicken Katsu part of this recipe is fabulous...a definite 5 star. But, as many others have noted, the Tonkatsu sauce was practically inedible. I wonder if the worcester sauce and soy sauce amounts were reversed? Despite the negative reviews, I followed the recipe exactly, tasted it, and agreed whole-heartedly with everyone else. So, I doctored it up a bit: added 2 more tablespoons of soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of hoisin sauce, and put it on the stove to simmer and thicken while I was cooking the chicken. It still wasn't great, but it was pretty good even if it didn't really taste like Tonkatsu sauce. So I'll keep looking for a sauce recipe, but thanks for the wonderful chicken katsu recipe! ETA: I made this again (really, really love this chicken katsu) and tweaked the Tonkatsu sauce recipe and loved it: 1/4 c. ketchup, 1/3 c. soy sauce, 1/4 c. worchester sauce, 1 tbsp hoisin sauce, garlic powder and pepper to taste. Hopefully that will help someone because this chicken katsu is really wonderful!

Japanese-Style Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
Quite good! I added about 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to spice it up. In the future, I think I'll cut back slightly on the oil. This wasn't quite as good as the green beans at our favorite Asian buffet, but it was still pretty good! Thanks!
