Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
OK... I am not a big fan of dishes with "mushroom soup".. but this one was really good.. a little more time consuming than I expected (watch out you don't burn the chops.. I think frying them for 5 mins each side may be a bit too long!) I used Campbell's "Golden Mushroom" which was all I had.. and added some fresh mushrooms to the mixture (after chops had baked for an hour)and poured it over the baked pork chops. Served with another All recipes favorite "Garlic Asparagus with Lime" and a baked potato... and even my 7 year old was happy!

Garlic Asparagus with Lime

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I was looking for a new way to cook asparagus.. and this is it!! I stuck with the lime and it gave it, along with the butter, a nice, rich flavor. And the 7 year old ate it (enough said!)

Baked Flan

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Excellent! I tried 3 of the other Flan recipes listed in this website and by far, this is my favorite one (so far). Didn't taste "eggy", the texture was good and the method with the water "bath" yielded a much nicer flan all around. It wasn't too sweet either. Where it calls for 1 cup of milk, since I only had fat free, I used a cup of "evaporated" milk.. I think next time I'll use 3 cups all together of the heavy cream. Nice recipe.. thanks!

Flan I

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Made this one last night. I am from Panama and my mother used to make her flan like this, but she would add a "splash" of rum (or any liquor for that matter) to get rid of the "egg-y" taste. I didn't do that and though it was nice, it did have that eggy flavor to it. I still think it was very nice. After cooling last night, it was still hard to serve. But today, it's just the perfect texture and very easy to slice and serve!

Slow Cook Thai Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I have to say, that for someone who does NOT like peanut butter, this was pretty darn good! I already had leftover chicken so I used that instead and follow the recipe (except for the 5 hours on the crockpot. Will do that next time because I LOVE my crockpot.. For my own taste, I added more lime juice (about another 1/4 cup) and 1/2 cup more chicken broth. I used Sesame seed oil to warm up the chicken (remember, I didn't do the crockpot part this time). Next time, I will reduce the peanut butter down to 1/2 cup as someone suggested (again, just MY personal preference), to save calories and to make the pb taste a little lighter. It definitely needs enough pepper flakes, but I added that at the end so my 7 year old could eat it and...she loved it! Served it with sesame green beans (green beans cooked with sesame oil, soy sauce and garlic) and coconut rice (rice cooked using 1/2 coconut milk + 1/2 water) and it was a total hit! Authentic or not, this is a keeper!!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I truly enjoyed this recipe, especially how easy it was to make.. set it and forget it!! I came home to a wonderful smell!! I chose to add some fresh, sliced mushrooms (which made it taste more home made and fresh) and a 1/2 cup of white wine which added a little bit of a "tang". Will definitely make again!

Seared Scallops with Spicy Papaya Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2006
I loved this recipe for how easy it was to make. I kept the salsa at room temp so it wouldn't "cool" the scallops too fast. I followed the suggestion of not using "flour" for the scallops.. I bought the big, Japanese jumbo scallops. Careful not to overcook.. they were sweet and a perfect combo with the salsa. To spice it up I changed the pepper to habanero, used regular sweet yellow onions (Walla Walla). I made some rice cooked in coconut milk.. and voila!! It even looked pretty on the plate! Great choice!

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2006
My family enjoyed this recipe very much! I followed the previous suggestions: 1)Buying a roasted chicken & using that meat (2 chicken breasts not enough meat in my house!)2)Blended the cottage cheese and sour cream but added a little bit of canned chiles (about 1 tbsp) to give it a little flavor. You can also use the "cotija" cheese instead of cottage to add more authentic flavor (I did and it was great too) 3)I do agree with another reviewer that it needs a lot more sauce, so I used 2 (10z) cans. 4) Brush the tortillas with the sauce and then put the filling in..and brush the sauce OVER every spot and THEN pour the rest of the sauce over it!Delicious!!

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
First time making pancit and this was easy!The noodles soften in warm water while I chopped the onions and garlic. I used sesame oil , added 2 tbsps of Fish sauce and an extra tbsp of soy sauce to give the noodles a little more flavor. Added some pepper flakes and slices of fried egg for presentation(per my Phillipina friend's suggestion!)and voila! I will make this again!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
I love curry.. and I have never been able to make a dish that tasted like the "real thing".. This was it! I used red curry and it worked great. Someone had mentioned that it was soupy.. A lot of thin sauce, but I pulled the chiken out and reduced the sauce for a few minutes so the chicken wouldn't overcook. I added red bell peppers and used a can of diced tomatoes with chiles (that was the only one I had)which gave it a bit more of a kick. I still added a little bit of red pepper flakes, served it over jazmine rice and it was a hit! Thank you!

Jenny's Jambalaya

Reviewed: May 20, 2006
What a great recipe to "rekindle" my love for Jambalaya! I had to do some adjustments to use my dutch oven instead of the electric skillet. For my own taste, it needed a little more of a kick so I used some "old bay seasoning" and little extra cayenne pepper. Instead of the garlic powder I used fresh garlic cloves instead

Puttanesca or Kalamata Kwik Sauce

Reviewed: May 17, 2006
It's truly delicious! I added a jar of roasted red bell peppers and some extra capers.. The pecorino cheese is the best choice. Using whole wheat penne pasta is a great choice for this hearty sauce
