Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Dee-Lish! Even on indoor grill. Used the recommended aioli sauce - Yum! Used multi-grain sandwich "flats" and will try an onion slice next time. Have a treat by using this recipe soon!

Peachy Rice Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
Wonderfully Refreshing; filling yet light. Used brown rice. Had no celery so substituted seeded diced cuke which I added with toasted walnuts at serving time. Used as main course with cottage cheese & cilantro & cowboy caviar. YUM!

Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
Very Cute Presentation; stuffing disappointing - forget the bread (sub w/yellow or brown rice maybe), add some real veggies, and zip up with some speecy-spicy-spoosy (Ro'Tel tomatoes, salsa, corn, etc). As is, tastes and looks like pepper-shaped meat loaf. Will try again next year with changes. Used green, yellow, red & orange peppers - What a grand idea!

Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
This is dee-lish - soooo flavorful. Coarsely cubed chicken, used crushed basil tomatoes (in cupboard), and stirred in fresh baby spinach when adding olives. Thinking petite peas might be nice too. Served over saffron rice. YUM. Thank you, Robyn.

Baked Stuffed Winter Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
This is an excellent recipe - used ground chicken & added cinnamon and s&p - skipped nuts. Will add veggies next time - options are endless. Sprinkled a bit of Texas Pete on mine - Hubby enjoyed as is. Please don't let the photo turn you off! Try It - You'll Like It : )

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
Simply Delicious! Used other reviewers' ideas: added chick peas, substituted olive oil for butter, added 3 shakes cayenne and used 2 1/2 tsp curry. This is a perfect base soup - maybe spinach would be a nice addition? Spiciness sneaks up with a subtle touch - what a treat. Used brown basmati rice. We love it - served with toasted wheat bread strips with cheese. YUM

Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
Would give this ten stars, if possible. Found the perfect-sized bowl, which makes all the diff. Followed one reviewer's suggestion to micro exactly 90 seconds and Voila! Have added veggies - delish no matter the ingredients or just plain egg. The microed egg is VERY HOT - pop out onto toast immediately & add the cheese & no extra micro needed. Don't miss this - you'll be hooked like us. THANKS! KrS for sharing.

Make-Ahead Spinach Manicotti

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
Good basic recipe, but simply too bland - added Italian seasoning to filling and ground spicy turkey sausage, mushrooms and artichoke hearts to sauce, and substituted approx 1/2 cup red wine for water. Not sure what else could spiff this up - maybe I goofed.

Cajun Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
Yum! Made for Fat Tuesday fun & was a big hit. If you lower heat after oil is hot, your roux will not burn, but will take approx 30 minutes. Thanks to reviewer who suggested making roux in advance and all of you who recommended less oil and more Creole seasoning. Topped gumbo with chopped green onion tops; served with yellow rice and 1/2 small sweet potato with butter (traditional) on the side. THE BEST!

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
Thanks! to all the reviewers out there and NIBLETS' excellent recipe, our MVP was a triumph. Doubled turmeric and curry powder, used just a sprinkle of salt, substituted zucchini with cubed calabaza (yum), used chopped figs instead of raisins and carrot juice and fresh-grated ginger (1 tsp). Added ginger to Step 2, eggplant to Step 3. Served with brown rice, oat bran pita bread, and plain Greek yogurt on the side. Nuked the squash and sweet potato on high for one minute each, just for ease in cubing. However you prepare this fragrant dish, you will surely enjoy it. Can't miss and sooooooo healthy!

Blueberry Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
A delish morning comfort treat, but IMHO this should be renamed Bread Pudding. Tweaked with lo-fat & sugar-free ingredients. Thanks everyone for your helpful hints. We all enjoyed, but a lot of prep for the results.

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini Deluxe

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
After many years of different takes on TT (my own and others' and as a kid), have to report this is absolute PERFECTION - flavor-wise, consistency-wise, and comfort-wise. Half the butter called for is more than enough. Added asparagus chopped to 1" pcs, chopped shoestring carrots and fresh baby spinach & sauteed very lightly with mushrooms etc. Used Progresso cream of mushroom soup (no msg), so additional liquid wasn't needed - had chicken broth on hand just in case. No cooking sherry in cupboard so substituted sweet vermouth. For shredded cheese, combined extra sharp cheddar and 4-cheese Mexican. If using spaghetti-type pasta, be sure to break in half or thirds (in my humble opinion, egg noodles would overpower the other ingredients) and please don't forget the parmesan on top - a crunchy treat. This recipe makes a lot & it is great the next day. Will make full recipe next time & freeze more than half. Looking for reasons to roast another turkey (or chicken) breast soon (precooked just wouldn't be the same).

Mom's Breakfast Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
Wow, what a delish treat on Christmas morning. Very flavorful and not too "eggy" - delicate cross between quiche and baked eggs. Used turkey sausage, low fat milk, cheddar/jack cheese and rye bread; added chopped spinach and garlic powder. Next time will try bacon and asparagus. Perfect for winter dinners also.

Red Rooster

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
All the "summertime" comments surprised me when this cocktail was included in the Mardi Gras Drinks list. WELL! made it anyway for Fat Tuesday along with Cajun dinner and King Cake. This yummy and light drink totally complemented our Creole menu - in the dead of winter. Doubled the OJ; used pear-flavored vodka (plain or any flavor would be fine); floated frozen raspberries (any frozen fruit will do) Absolutely Addicting and is now part of our year-round rotating cocktail list.

Cocktail 707

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
Breathtaking Indeed! My first clue should've been only 3 ratings in 3 years. Seemed like too much booze per drink, but made it anyway. Here's the numbers: each person is drinking 3 ounces of hooch to 2 ounces + one tbsp of juice per serving. Why waste the juice - just do shooters. Congrats to all of you out there that were sensible enough to skip this idea.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
Beyond Scrumptious! Used reviewers suggestions for milk: used 1/4 cup. Added 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Slightly mashed taters first to avoid overmixing for lumps. Important to find thick-skinned taters - had a bit of a mess due to too thin skins, but just as delicious. Next time will add fresh baby spinach or diced green or red pepper to mixture before second bake. Served with grilled asparagus with diced mushrooms. Success and sooooo yummy.
