Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2014
My family raved about this one. For 6 chicken breasts, I doubled the recipe. For the ginger, I used 3 Tbsp of jarred minced ginger and 2 tsp of jarred minced garlic. I didn't cook anything; I just mixed the ingredients well and poured over the chicken in a ziplock bag and let sit for about 20 hours.

Eggplant Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
Made this for my mom because she LOVES eggplant and it was on sale for $1.79/lb. I made the following changes per other suggestions: I salted the cut eggplant and let it sweat for about 45 minutes, then dried very well on paper towels. In the eggs, I added about 1/3 cup Italian dressing, just to give the eggplant some added flavor. Dredged in seasoned breadcrumbs and baked 12 minutes per side. While eggplant baked, I sautéed the onions and about a tsp of minced garlic. I used a vidalia onion. Used a 9 x 13 glass baking dish and since I had a small eggplant, I had just 1 layer. I layered the eggplant, then the sautéed mixture, and finally 1/2 a container of halved cherry tomatoes. Sprinkled with grated parm, basil, oregano, salt, and freshly ground pepper. Baked at 350° for 20 minutes, covered. Removed foil, add 2 handfuls of shredded provolone and baked 5 minutes longer. Next time, I'll slice the eggplant thicker but that was my fault. I will also try this with zucchini and summer squash mixed with the eggplant. All in all, 2 thumbs up!!

Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
Excellent and easy- I've made this salad quite a few times. After marinating the tomatoes, I like to serve it on a platter of romaine leaves and sprinkle with grated parm. Everyone loves it and it's healthy!

Steak Fajitas

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
I bought a strip steak on sale and since I made this before and everyone loved it, I did it again. Here's what I do - 1st pound out steak to tenderize (usually doubles the size) and season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Then I whisk together the lime juice and cilantro. I then rub that mixture into the meat and let it marinade in the refrigerator. I then cut the steak in 2 and cook them with the veggies and lemon juice, with a little extra sea salt and pepper. Once the steak is done and is resting, I make sure the veggies cook down and the onion caramelizes. I put a strip of sour cream in the tortilla first, add the steak (now cut on the bias), veggies, cold lettuce, a little taco sauce and cheddar or colby jack shredded cheese. With the leftover steak, I make a steak salad. Very good!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
I had frozen haddock filets so I defrosted them first. I took the advice of one of the reviews and sautéed the garlic in the melted butter for just a couple of minutes and then spread on the fish. Added the parsley and baked at 375 for about 22 minutes (watched carefully and checked flaking with fork). Very, very good!

Parmesan Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
Drizzled with olive oil and then seasoned with salt and pepper. Since I had the oven set to 375 for another dish, I increased the cooking time to a total of 14 minutes. When finished baking, I used a microplane with a block of parmesan for an added flavor. Everyone loved this. So easy!

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
My mom isn't big on spicy chili or a lot of beans so this is perfect for us. I used ground pork today since it was on sale and it came out as delicious as usual.

Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
This is our absolutely favorite recipe for hamburgers. I do always leave out the cayenne, simply because my mom doesn't like it at all. Depending on the day, I also take shredded cheddar and mix that in with the burgers. Either way, these are excellent!

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Made these with some fresh green beans. I only made one change and that was to boil the green in low sodium chicken broth. After cooking, I drizzled them with olive oil and tossed. I then tossed with all the remaining ingredients which I combined earlier. My dinner guests loved these. Recommended!

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2012
Had a lot of produce so I customized this a bit. I had a bunch of cherry tomatoes so I quartered them. I also used 1 zucchini and 1 yellow squash. I added thinly sliced mushrooms and green onions to the layers. On the top, I spread some panko bread crumbs and drizzled with EVOO instead of the onion/butter mixture. People had seconds so it's a keeper.

Creamy Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
I use a french vanilla cake and add a few drops of coconut flavoring. Also, I do not use the condensed milk. I usually use food coloring in the coconut - just for some fun - and today I added some fresh blueberries to the top. My dad says this is the moistest, most delicious coconut cake he's ever had. Making it again today for Father's Day!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
This recipe was so easy and yet it turned out to be better than restaurant quality! I'm so pleased. Used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Doubled the sauce, as everyone else mentioned. Used 1/4 c. white sugar and 1/2 c. brown sugar. Lined dish with foil and cooking spray. Put 1/2 of sauce on to the chicken, covered with foil, and cooked at 375 for 30 minutes. Took out of oven, turned pieces over, drained some of the extra liquid, and added rest of sauce. Baked, uncovered, at 350 for 20 minutes. Chicken was so moist and tender, it was falling apart! Will definitely make again!

Garlic Chicken Fried Brown Rice

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
Wonderful side dish! I made a couple changes but it turned out excellent. I cooked teriyaki chicken separately and had this on the side. Used white rice and substituted french cut green beans instead of peas. Also added a couple drops of sesame oil. This will be in the "go to" recipes!

Scottish Shortbread III

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
WOW!!! This is fantastic authentic shortbread. You do need to work the flour in with your hands and make sure you sift it before adding. These are worth the trouble!

Easy Slow Cooker Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
This is my "go to" recipe when asked to bring a dish. My mom also has me make a batch and then freezes them (after cooked in sauce) in packs of 10 or so. One thing I do is puree the onion so you get the flavor and no chunks. I also started using 3/4 lb. pork and 3/4 lb. beef. EXCELLENT!!!
