Drunken Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
The cut of meat is definitely the best part of the recipe but it seemed a shame to fry it as opposed to grilling it. The marinade didn't appear to add any flavour and although it was extremely simple to make, it was rather plain for our liking.

Minted Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
I really enjoyed the mint flavor that came through here. I used a combination of pineapple mint and spearmint that I had growing in the garden.

Greek Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
This is a nice fast recipe that is a good way to use up leftovers in the fridge. I added extra feta and olives and it was pretty good. I like tomato in my Greek salad though so just felt like something was missing.

Cabbage on the Grill

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Fantastic!!! I didn't have a full head of cabbage so the wedges that I cut were smaller than suggested in the recipe. I wrapped each with two slices of bacon and was generous with the butter and garlic powder. This was amazingly good and SO simple to make!

Shrimp and Crab Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
This was quite good. I incorporated suggestions from many of the other reviewers. I sauted uncooked shrimp with a generous amount of garlic and a couple of leeks. I added about a 1/4 cup of cream cheese and some pepper to the mixture. I put a bit of the sauce in the pan first to prevent sticking (although it did still stick somewhat). For the last 15 minutes of baking I also threw some shredded cheddar on top and then broiled for a minute or so at the end. The biggest change was that I could only find red enchilada sauce and it was still good but I can see that the green sauce may be the key. I also generously filled 6 large flour tortillas and it filled my 9X13 ceramic dish nicely. I found that with the amount of crab in this recipe I got a nice crab flavour and didn't need more. I also used the amount of sauce listed and it was fine...not too soggy. Found I didn't need near the amounts of sour cream or green onions listed. Thanks for the recipe and all the other suggestions too!

Cashew Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Followed the recipe pretty closely (used a bit of ground chicken as I didn't have quite enough cooked cubed chicken). I thought it was quite tasty and so did my company. A little runny but that's not a big deal and could be because I used some ground chicken. Love that you pre-make it and just have to stick it in the oven when hectic dinner time comes around!

Roasted Red Onions Stuffed With Mascarpone Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This had potential but didn't turn out well for me. The onions were very raw and basically inedible despite extending the cooking time substantially. I altered the filling at the suggestion of another reviewer by adding extra herbs such as basil, chives and extra thyme and garlic. When I filled the onions I had space leftover so I added some feta that I had on hand. The filling was actually quite good this way had the onions been cooked thoroughly. So...the recipe has potential but you may need to deviate somewhat.

Pumpkin Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This was a great recipe. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice so used 1/2tsp each of allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. I also took the advice of another reviewer and added some garlic powder. Found it had loads of flavour! And what a great way to hide some extra vitamins from the picky eaters!

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
Fantastic! I assumed that the beets would need to be cooked and peeled before I started and did so before reading the recipe. It was way easier to peel this way I think and worked fine when I added them with the potatoes and carrots. I forgot the sugar and I don't think it was needed and I doubled the garlic which I think was awesome! I also didn't shred anything...just chopped. Will surely make this again!

Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
I've always thought of enchiladas as being made with corn tortillas so that's what I did. I'm glad that I took the advice of others and added an envelope of taco seasoning otherwise this would've been low on flavour. Next time I would use a spicier taco seasoning and spicier enchilada sauce as it was still a bit bland for my liking. I had also added WAY more garlic powder than the 1/8 tsp garlic salt suggested here.

Vegetarian Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
This was really good and easy to make! I added about 4 cloves of garlic and was very generous with the spices. I also threw in some red chili flakes. Didn't have quite enough portobello mushroom so threw in some cremini mushrooms to make up the difference and it was really good.

Garlic Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
The best way to do corn for sure! I've made it twice now and it's great using garlic powder or freshly minced garlic.

Mom's 'Sweet 'n' Sours' Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
Really great sauce! I followed the procedure exactly and the ribs turned out really well. I changed the ingredients just a bit. I doubled the garlic and also added pineapple chunks as was suggested by another reviewer. Was great over brown rice!

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
I really liked the flavour in this recipe! I was quite generous with all seasonings and it was really tasty. I took the advice of another rater and rubbed the herbs under the skin with the butter. Served it with the allrecipes.com recipe 'Broccoli in Roast Chicken Drippings' and wild rice and it was great! Will make it again for sure.

Broccoli in Roast Chicken Drippings

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
A good way to cook broccoli. Very easy and practical. I wish allrecipes.com had half-star ratings so my husband and I could split the difference. He gave it a lower rating (3 stars) as it is a bit fatty cooked in the chicken drippings. I would've given it 4 stars but I gave in to his rating. I took the advice of another rater and left the broccoli in the oven longer (about 15 minutes or so) and that was great.

White Pizza with Roasted Garlic and Green Olives

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This makes a really good appetizer! A little bit oily so you could consider using less olive oil. The roasted garlic is fantastic so you don't want to skimp on it!

Baked Tofu Spinach Wrap

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
This was indeed really good! I took the advice of another reviewer and baked my own tofu with a marinade of soy sauce and a bit of sesame oil. I placed damp paper towel under and over the tortillas while microwaving and the pitas stayed nice and soft. A quick and easy weeknight meal! I thought it may also be good with some sauteed mushrooms and/or bell peppers tossed in...might try that next time.
