Tuna Fish Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
Easy & delicious! I followed the advice to use less mayo (only about a tblsp) and I did not use celery, substituted lime juice for lemon and added fresh cilantro in addition to parsley. Served it on grilled ciabatta bread but I could have eaten it all by itself!

Chicken Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Use chunks of pineapple in this salad instead of celery and it tastes just like sweet and sour chicken cashew salad. Really good.

Grilled Turkey Tenderloins

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Our grocery store's meat counter sells bacon-wrapped turkey tenderloins. I marinated and cooked the turkey with the bacon attached and it seems that gave this recipe an even more delicious flavor!

Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I only had boneless skinless chicken breasts to use, so was wondering if I would have enough drippings to make the "gravy". I used 3 slices of bacon for each piece of chicken and had plenty...added the mushrooms to the sauce before pouring over the chicken...a delicious and rather impressive entree.

Ginger Pork Stir Fry (with Mushroom)

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
Stir Fry sauce with brown sugar HAS to be good! I made twice as much of the soy/vinegar/brown sugar /cornstarch mixture and then tossed the stir fry with ramen noodles (cooked without the seasoning packet) to soak up all the good flavor.

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This 'secret hobo' blend of spices is extremely tasty. It is delicious with Tilapia but I wouldn't hesitate to also use this with other types of fish.

Honey Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
These are delicious! I could have eaten a lot more so I guess that means I'll be fixing them again... I did pre-cook the carrots a bit by boiling them, but roasting to finish cooking yields a much better result, both in taste and in appearance (in my opinion).

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Baby carrots cut in half lengthwise work well and shorten the cooking time s a bit.

Hot and Spicy Tofu

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
I used to think I only liked tofu if it had been marinated prior to cooking, but this recipe changed my mind. The flavor was excellent and I liked the texture of the tofu in the stir-fry because of frying it first before adding the vegetables. I like food spicy but only used crushed red pepper and with the strong vinegar flavor that was enough to satisfy me. The only change I would make was to maybe add a bit more brown sugar next time. Since my initial review, I've made this several times. My favorite vegetable combination is yellow onion and broccoli.

Macaroni and Cheese - Baked

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I intended to make the original recipe minus the bread crumb topping, then discovered the new feature AR just added to view custom recipes, so saved this one to my recipe box to make again. The thing I liked best about this recipe was that it is tasty macaroni and cheese that doesn't use processed cheese. For my future reference - I halved the cheese sauce and used 2 cups of uncooked pasta shells. I also added several Tbsps of parmesan and used Colby Jack instead of cheddar. Some shakes of paprika for a little extra color and zip.

Tangy Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Just as the recipe says - tangy and good! I've made similar recipes before and think this way of making barbecued beef is so much better than using prepared sauce. I enjoyed my beef as an "open-face" style sandwich on potato bread toast. This sauce recipe would be good with shredded leftover roast, too.

Creamy Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
I followed the directions/amounts exactly (with the exception of tempering the eggs before adding them to the hot milk). Even though I dislike separating eggs because I never know what to do with the whites and hate to waste them, using the yolks only made this exceptionally custardy and rich. Delicious. I can visualize this as filling for cream puffs. I filled 3 custard cups with pudding and then ate the rest warm straight from the saucepan!

Strawberries in Spiced Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
I've made this several times now - the first time I used it as pancake syrup. I thawed frozen whole strawberries and mashed them with the sugar/water/spice syrup. I made it the same way the second time, except used it as a dessert sauce over purchased pound cake with a spoonful of vanilla yogurt on top.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I had half of a really nice home-grown sweet potato that I needed to use. Had made sweet potato fries before, but with different seasonings. I added a little garlic powder and salt to the paprika and it was great! Be sure to cut the potatoes in thin sticks and stir several times during baking to make them crispier...

Gel's Green Beans and Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I thought the salty soy sauce and sweet honey combine well for a really easy stir fry sauce. The first time I made this I used more veggies and mixed cooked Ramen noodles into the skillet. The second time I made it with just beef and green beans and served it over rice. Loved it both ways.

Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
The brief marinade of the tomatoes really adds to the flavor and juiciness, but toasting the bread prior to broiling keeps it from absorbing too much juice. I used Roma tomatoes from the grocery store (actually quite good for winter tomatoes) and thick potato bread. I will definitely make this again with garden-ripe tomatoes.

Braised Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I would suggest switching the chicken broth and the water - braising in the broth and mixing the cornstarch with the water. Other than that, I thought this was a perfect mix of seasonings and a fast and delicious way to prepare pork. I also tripled the amount so I'd have lots of tasty gravy.

Orange Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
The red wine vinegar, green onions, and oranges work perfectly together. I did modify the proportions of the dressing a bit, using about equal amounts of vinegar & oil, and slightly more honey. After I sectioned the orange, I squeezed the remaining juice and added it to the dressing.

Veggie Delight on Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
What a great idea... I used zucchini, mushrooms, green onion, tomato, and ripe olives with a splash of balsamic vinegar added as they simmered together. Just like a delicious veggie pizza.

Salsa Beef Skillet

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I used tenderized beef stew meat and it was amazingly tender in about an hour and a half of slowly simmering covered on the stove. If you like to have plenty of tasty sauce to spoon over the rice, I'd suggest doubling the sauce. The lime juice addition at the end of cooking time is a must! This is one of my favorite ways to prepare beef.
