Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
This recipe was very good! Definately would make again. I recommend cutting the chicken in smaller proportions and maybe even decreasing the amount of cajun seasoning a little because it was a little overwhelming but I will definately make again!

Indian Fish Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This recipe was delicious! I ended up using honey brown mustard and doubling the amount of the marinade (didn't seem like enough for four fillets). I used swai fillets and didn't have cashews but this recipe is full of flavor even without it. Also, I didn't have any tomatos so I used one can diced tomatoes, drained. Finally, I didn't have vegetable broth, so I used chicken broth. The spice level is probably high for many people, but I found it to be a little above what I normally tolerate. Will definately make this again.

Beef Stifado

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Great flavor! I did change some things to simplify the recipe. I browned all the meat together with the garlic and onions in a wok, covered. Then I added the red wine, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Instead of orange zest I added ~1 tsp dried orange flakes. I added the complete can, undrained of diced tomatoes and instead of the water, I added beef stock to add flavor. When I make this again, I think I will omit the pearl onions. They were tasty but they were a lot of work to peel and not essential to the meal. I might replace them with some other vegetable like green beans. I served it over egg noodles and with crescent rolls. Delicious!

Beef with Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
The combination of flavors were good but it wasn't strong enough. I added my own veggies (broccoli, squash, zucchini and carrots) and increased the amount of sauce. I also had to increase the amount of soy sauce and oyster sauce to help the flavor. I also added 1/2-1 teaspoon of fish sauce to try and enhance the flavor as well as hot chili oil to add spice. In the end, there was more flavor, but I didn't completely find the combination to feature the oyster sauce. Would make again with some adjusting in sauce proportions.

Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
This was good but not as amazing as I was expecting. The basil flavor was very overwhelming. The addition of poultry spices as well as rosemary helped a little to create a larger array of flavors. Also, it was way too salty. I would cut down the salt by half. I don't think I will be doing this recipe again.

Chicken Tagine

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
My boyfriend and I liked this. I actually grabbed pork chops by accident, so I made it with pork instead of chicken (and I think it was a good substitution). I think if I were to make it again, I'd add a little less lemon juice and maybe replace the 1 cup of water with apple juice.

Shrimp in Coconut Tomato Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This recipe has a good basis. I changed a few things based on what I had available. I used regular margarine, white onion instead of scallions and ginger spice. I also made it with noodles as a previous reviewer suggested, but based on the amount of liquid present, I'm thinking rice might be better. I had to add a fair amount of sugar to counteract all the salty ingredients. I also added curry powder to add more flavor. Otherwise, it was good.

Singapore Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
This receipe was delicious! The flavor was absolutely spot on! I would recommend to reduce the amount of red pepper unless you have a really high tolerance for spicy food. I made this receipe with a few modifications. I used regular egg noodles instead of chinese egg noodles and vegetable oil instead of peanut oil. I used 1 TBSP of ground ginger and ground red pepper instead of pepper flakes. Instead of carrots, water chestnuts and mushrooms, I used 1/2 a bag of frozen stir-fry vegetables. Will definately make again!

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This recipe was really good. It's not hurting in flavor in anyway. I used canned diced tomatoes (not drained) and reudced that. I agree with some other reviewers that the sauce was really bland. I think next time I will try real coconut milk, not lite. I added sugar and salt to taste in order to enhance the flavor of the sauce. Also, the salt and pepper in the chicken seasoning is very important. I found it too be a little spicy, but definately not intolerable. Will definately make again!

Peanut Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
I read many of the reviews and most of them were very positive, so I was disappointed in the lack of flavor of this dish. I tried adding soy sauce and peanut butter to enhance the flavor but I didn't want to disrupt the balance too much. Not sure if I'll be making this again.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
This recipe was good. I listened to a lot of the reviews. I doubled the sauce recipe to baste the chicken. I only had sodium soy sauce, so I added the amount posted (because I doubled the recipe) and then added more to taste. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar (doing the same thing with the brown sugar as I did the soy sauce). My chicken was partially frozen so I baked for 30 minutes at 375 covered and then 30 minutes at 350 uncovered and turning every 20 minutes. The chicken was a little drier than expected and I think basting every 10 minutes might be excessive. I think you can baste every 20 minutes and be all right. The flavor of the sauce was good even though I'd never heard of using vinegar in a teriyaki sauce. I think if I make this again, I might marinate the chicken in the teriyaki in order to add more flavor.

Trinidad Stewed Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
Really amazing recipe. Normally I find myself tweeking recipes as I make them but this is one you don't really need to. I took some of the reviewers advice and used chicken broth instead of water and I added peas to the mix for a veggie. Fantastic. Will definately make again!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
Out of all the curry recipies I've tried, this is by far the best! I added some extra curry paste and chili oil to make it spicier but the flavor was really good! I also added green beans. Made numerous times and it was always delicious! Definately should allow it to simmer for at least 1 hour.

Cheddar Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
Delicious! Will definately make again! Like many others, I omitted the rice crispies and the flavor was still there. Considering the lack of flavor in rice crispies I'm not sure why it's needed. I might reduce the amount of butter next time just because it wasn't needed and to make it a little more healthy.

Tomato Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
This recipie was great! I ended up substituting the mushrooms and green peppers with an array of frozen veggies. I also cooked the steak with the garlic and onions to add more flavor to the meat. Came out delicious! Definately making this again!

Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This dish was okay. It was seriously lacking in flavor. I tried taking the advice of other reviewers and adding onion powder, garlic powder and italian seasoning, but I still found it quite bland. Not sure I will make this again unless I figure out some better seasonings to go with it.

Mexican Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
This was good, but the flavor wasn't everything I expected. I had to do some alterations because I didn't have everything on hand. I omitted the green, red and jalapeno peppers. I used a can of tomato paste and 1/3 of a can tomato sauce in place of the puree. I also used 1 cup of chicken broth in place of the bouillon granules and water. I added taco seasoning in order to get more flavor as well as added 1 can of corn for more veggies. Also, mexican cheese mix in combination with cheddar cheese was more flavorful. In the end, it turned out pretty good, but had to add a lot of seasoning to get it there.

Chicken and Peas with Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
I followed some of the recommended changes of reviewers. I used skim milk instead of half-and-half, montreal chicken seasoning and garlic salt instead of salt and used 1/4 cup of flour to help thicken the sauce. It turned out quite tasty!
