Cherry Limeade II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
Not too bad. Basically another version of a shirley temple. It wasn't anything spectacular, but was definately refeshing.

Smothered Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
This was pretty good. My husband and I were getting tired of Chicken and decided that we hadn't had Talapia in forever so I set to work on finding a recipe that sounded unique. This definately took the cake. When I first looked at the ingrediants, I was surprised to see so many variants in flavoring and it intrigued me. It turned out very nicely. I didn't change anything to the recipe and baked it for about 25 minutes. It was moist and flakey with bold flavors that blended very well and I've got to say, the tomato really makes this dish. My husband raved about it and instructed that I add this to my list of keepers. Thanks for the good eats. ;)

Egyptian Koshari

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
I was really excited when I first found this recipe because I love the Egyptian culture and was ecstatic that I would be able to sample some of the authentic cuisine from Egypt. So I was extremely disappointed when this recipe flopped completely at my house. It was just way too starchy and way too bland. In fact, I've never eaten something this bland before. No amount of extra tomatoes, garlic,onions or salt seemed to make it any more flavorful, it just made it overly salty. I feel bad about the poor review, but I will not be making this again. :(

Mediterranean Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
This was just okay to me. I'll say right away that I actually left out the chicken in this recipe since I was already having a chicken dish with this. Next time, I'll be sure to add some because I don't think it turned out the same without it. The bacon didn't really mix well with the feta, olives and rosemary by itself and would have probably been a lot better if I had put chicken in the mix. (I ended up giving my bacon to my oldest son) The only changes I made was to add some garlic powder to enhance the sauce's other flavors, and left out the artichoke hearts. My boys loved this though, and asked me for seconds, which is rare unless they really like something, so kudos to the recipe. I'll make this again, but like I said, next time, I'll definitely add the chicken.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
This was pretty tasty. The blend between the butter, dill and capers, was simply fantastic! It blended very well with the flavors of the chicken and complemented it almost flawlessly. I only wish that I had made more of the sauce, it was soo delicious! I was a little disappointed in the toughness of my chicken (completely my fault) as I had to reheat it since it hadn't cooked completely through the center. It took away some of the tender juiciness of the meat, which would have made this dish even better. Besides my personal kitchen blunder, this was a very good recipe, so good in fact, that my two boys (5&6) gobbled it right up then asked me for seconds :)

Cranberry Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
This was simply fabulous! When I first saw this recipe, I was really skeptical at first because of the combination of ingredients together and I was worried that it would turn out too sweet as my husband and I don't really like sweeter dishes. However, as a newer cook, I've been trying to broaden our horizons (and palettes) and seeing as how the recipe contained all things we like on a normal basis, I decided to take a leap of faith. (The four and a half stars might have contributed to the equation as well ;) ) WOW!!! Like I said before, flipping amazing. I changed absolutely nothing on this recipe, with exception to using frozen cranberries and not fresh because my local grocers didn't carry them. It's hard to imagine that the frozen cranberries made a single bit of difference in the over all flavor of the roast, it was really just that good. The flavors blended perfectly and it was not a sweet roast at all. It was so tender that fell apart with a fork; we didn't even need steak knives. All around, beyond and above, excellent recipe and I am soo glad that I decided to take a chance on it. I will most certainly be making this again!!

Ground Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
This was pretty good and it went over pretty well (besides the carrots ;) ) with my kids too. I might add a little more tomato flavor to it next time, but all in all it was a good, QUICK recipe (in my household, quick as almost always better) and I will be making this one for my family again.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
This was pretty good. My husband and I really liked the flavors of the soup itself and the dumplings were very delicious (actually, I didn't use the dumpling recipe given, instead, I used croissant rolls broken into pieces) However, we were highly disappointed that not all the potatoes were cooked all the way through, even though I cooked the soup for about three hours all total. I followed the directions and simmered it on a low setting the entire time, which I probably wont do again. Next time, I'll probably increase the heat to medium and add just a few more seasonings because it turned out to be slightly bland. But we did like this recipe enough to definitely try it again so, three stars. (3-22-12)
