Island-Style Fried Rice

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I just made this for a party this last weekend and had to make 2 double batches(I have a big wok)! I was unable to find the chinese sausage and was leery of spam so I cubed 2 raw ham steaks instead. I browned the ham a bit after cubing it and it worked out great. I also added 1/3 cup white sugar, 2 Tblspns honey, 2 tsp ground ginger, 1/4 Cup soy sauce, 2 Tblspns toasted sesame oil and cut 1 fresh pineapple into cubes. Remember, I doubled the recipe, so the amount is not exessive. The dish was such a hit that even the second batch couldn't satisfy everyones appetite for more. Chen, you're an angel. Thanks for making me the hero!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Just made this tonight. It was very good. I took the advice of several reviewers and did not dredge the chicken in flour because of the time that it's covered during cooking. I didn't use enough mushrooms though. I bought an 8 oz. package of sliced mushrooms and thought it would be plenty - I was wrong! Next time I'll get at least a pound! Oh, I also used 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning and left out the bay leaf (I forgot that I didn't have any). Worked out great! Thank you for this recipe.

Red Cabbage Salad II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
This is a GREAT recipe! If you increase the sugar amount to 3 tablespoons and grate (not dice) 1/2 of a large sweet onion instead of onion powder it will be EXACTLY like the salad at the restaurant I go to to get this. As others have noted - this is definitely a make ahead dish. A whole day or two is not too long!

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
Good Lord! This was just awesome! The only thing I did different was delete the salt and to quickly sear my roast before dropping it in my slow cooker. Nobody had ever eaten such a good roast before (including me)! The only thing I'll change next time I make this is to cut down a little on the ranch dressing mix. It seemed to me to be only slightly prominent (just to me though - since nobody else knew what was in the roast). I think just 1/2 or maybe even 2/3 of a package might work out even better. Thank you very much for this incredible recipe!

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
Excellent recipe! I made only a couple of slight changes but basically the same. I used 2 cans diced toms(15 oz. each) instead of crushed toms - I like tomato pieces in my chili. Also, instead of 2 cups water I used 1 can vegetable broth and 1 can chicken broth. The diced onion (must be a SWEET onion!) I softened in the pot before adding turkey meat, and then added the minced garlic (5 large cloves) right after the turkey had cooked to prevent garlic from burning. I then de-glazed the pot with the vegetable stock before adding all the other ingredients. Better than any packaged chili mix by far! Thank you!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
My girlfriend LOVES when I make this for her, says that I'm going to spoil her! This is a great recipe that I only adjusted a bit after reading other reviews that made sense. Adjustments were: (1)squeezing lemon juice onto chicken breasts and then seasoning with (2) garlic pepper and dried dill weed. Then let sit 15 minutes. (3) NOT turning chicken more than twice. (4) De-glazing the pan with 1/2 cup Pinot Grigio and simmer down by one half before adding doubled recipe amounts of sauce ingredients and then letting that reduce a bit - as per directions. The thin consistency complaints I've read should be adressed by REDUCING, NOT ADDING STARCH OR FLOUR. This is a sauce and not a gravy! I like to serve this with an asparagus amandine and a cooked pasta sautéed with EV olive oil, butter, garlic and parmesan. The sauce just gets all over everything and is INcredible! Thank you mommyto2boys for this great recipe! You should let your husband browse for ingredients some more!

M's Sloppy Joe Sauce

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
Great sloppy joe recipe! I made it as directed, only substituted red bell peppers for green and crushed tomatoes for purèed tomatoes. Much better than any canned Sloppy Joe sauce. Thanks for this!

Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
I made this dip back on Super Bowl Sunday for a potluck party and got mixed reviews. I am one who does definitely prefer bleu cheese to ranch on my buffalo style wings, but it seems that not everyone has my good taste! The bleu cheese taste was a bit strong however, but that may be because of the dressing that I use which is Bob's Big Boy® brand. It is a very rich dressing. I may temper it by halving the bleu cheese dressing and adding in some ranch next time. Not sure. Anyway, 5 stars because I loved it and I'm sure that it can be made a little less potent so as to please most everyone.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
I live in SoCal and like to fish the local saltwater. One of the species that we get here in the beginning of summer is California Barracuda. A fun fish to catch, but not always so fun to eat, and you really need to eat it the same day you catch it. They're fairly large fish too, so I need to get as many people fed as I can. This is one of the few recipes I've found that does this fish justice and keeps people from asking too many questions about what kind of fish they're eating! Thanks!

Bacon and Almond Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I submitted this recipe, but somehow the directions were changed. The bacon pieces are supposed to be added to the bowl with the almonds etc.. before adding in the green beans.
