Spicy Tofu Salad Bowl

Reviewed: May 29, 2015
I am the submitter of this recipe. The amount of tofu is one package/box of tofu. I use a box of Mori-nu Tofu which is 12.3 oz. And I use half of romaine lettuce "heart," not the whole romaine lettuce itself. You can definitely use any lettuce you like, but still, I think 1/2 head of it will be too much for one serving, especially to make a rice bowl. I also noticed that you can't see the footnotes when you use your mobile app. I don't recommend to substitute the Korean chili powder with any other chili powders. It will be too spicy and alter the taste drastically. But if you must, make sure to add small amount at a time and taste it. Hope you enjoy!

Authentic Pad Thai

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2015
It was too vinegary, and it didn't taste like the typical Pad Thai

Cajun Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2015
I used the chicken tenders and marinated overnight. I followed the recipe exactly. I didn't love or hate as is, but it will be good with salad or sandwich because you'll add dressing and other stuff. It was definitely super easy to make and maybe using more expensive spices might help the flavor (I used those cheapy kinds).

Pineapple Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2015
This didn't wow me but it was very easy to make. I marinated the meat overnight. I simmered and reduced the marinate to make it as the sauce for over 30 min but it was still watery. I think it'll be better with a bit of tweaking.

Crispy Pork Cutlets

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2015
This was pretty simple and easy to make. The meat was definitely tender and crispy! I was hoping to taste more jalapenos and pickles. I guess I was imagining the Tartar sauce with jalapeno but it was not, so I ended up putting more pickles and jalapenos. The next time I might just going to make my own usual Tartar sauce and add jalapenos. Now the pork was just like the Japanese pork cutlet, Tonkatsu, and I didn't even have to deep fry it. I give 10 stars for that. I've been making just the crispy pork since and enjoying many tonkatsu recipes. Thank you, Chef!

Wisconsin Bratwurst

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2015
Since one of our church members served us her beer brats at a church BBQ, I've been looking for the recipe because she passed away before I could ask her the recipe. This was not her beer brat recipe but it was tasty and so much better than the other recipes with dark beer. The dark beer flavor was just too strong and I couldn't even eat the onions, but this one was so delicious and I wished I put more onions. It seems like people are divided whether they should grill the brats before or after and I never had a beer brat before the church BBQ, so I did both. I grilled first, put in the beer mixture and grilled again right before I put it on a hot dog bun. My remote town did not have any fancy bread except a regular… And no, I did not break the brats. I will definitely make this again.

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2015
I wanted to try this because I had a frozen pie crust to use and this recipe only required a very few ingredients. It's not going to blow your mind but it's super easy and basic. I didn't use frozen vegetables or precooked chicken so I sautéed them with thyme, garlic, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. I didn't measure the meat and vegetables and so I ended up using whole two cans of soup. I'd never used Cream up celery or potato soup cans before and I was imagining to taste celery but I didn't taste it at all. I like celery so the next time I'll add some celery seeds. I'll also try it with cream of chicken and mushroom soups next time.

Jalapeno Margaritas

The cocktail itself tasted okay but I didn't taste the jalapeno.

Jalapeno and Cucumber Margarita

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2015
I used more cucumber slices and muddled them. I could taste the cucumber but didn't taste the jalapenos. Still, this gave me an idea of much spicier cocktail using jalapenos, so thank you for sharing!

Chip Truck Fries

I LOVE french fries but I HATE frying. This is my solution now. I cut them 1/4" as the recipe stated but they're done in 35 min. Thank you for sharing!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2015
I can't really rate the taste because I accidentally put too much cayenne. But it was definitely easy and quick.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: May 9, 2014
It definitely was delicious and spicy (not for those who can't take the heat). I didn't change a thing but I don't grill so I baked my salmon in the 400 degree oven for 20 min. I'll make it again. Thanks!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
It was delicious and very satisfying. I usually give 4 stars for my “favorite” recipes but this one got my 5 stars because it was also so simple and easy to make. I used non-stick pan so didn’t use olive oil at all. Because the sausage was browned with red pepper, it was pretty spicy. I will reduce the pepper when I make this one for my family. I understand if you have kids, you need to sneak many veggies in their favorite dish but the beauty of this dish was this amazingly simple combination of sausage, tomato and cream. I won’t change the flavor by adding bell peppers. Adding a simple veggie side dish like steamed asparagus might compliment this hearty dish better. Thanks for sharing!

Cauliflower Lettuce Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
I don't think I've ever had a layered salad so it was very interesting. I combined all the dressing ingredients plus onion and bacon in a container a night before. I was worried about the amount of sugar but I made it as it's said. It was pretty sweet but surprisingly it didn't bother me too much. I only used a half amount of sugar the second time I made it and it was great.

White Peach Sangria

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
I love sangria and I was so looking forward to try this recipe and finally made it. I was very disappointed! I used peach schnapps and omitted grapes since a local store didn't have any but many reviewers said they also used peach schnapps instead of vodka and used only peach and/or add other fruits and everyone seemed to love it anyways. I brought it to my friend who lives next door, thinking maybe it's just me who didn't care for the taste and he said it tasted like a cheap wine cooler. Perfect description, except all these ingredients weren't cheap at all...

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I made it as it's written first and it came out so moist and oh so easy! The second time I made this, I used chicken tenders and panko (no seasonings). It came out just like chicken katsu and I served it with some tonkatsu sauce. Now I can have my chicken katsu without a hassle of deep frying on a hot summer day. It was awesome! ... I mean, "amazing"!

Cucumber Sandwiches III

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
Super easy and very good, just like those little tea sandwiches I had at a high end tea place in Pasadena. I did add 2 teaspoons dried dill in the mix and didn't touch it until the next day. I used white bread and it did taste great but cutting the soft bread was not easy without a bread knife. Also I tried both dill and lemon pepper sprinkles on top and thought lemon pepper overpowered the taste of sandwiches. Sprinkle bit of dill on top also looked nicer and elegant.
