Kick'N Chicken with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
Excellent! I used Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute for the chicken seasoning. I added a little Anaheim chile to the salsa because it's a mild chile (had to be careful for another eater in my family), but I like heat in my salsa! I made the salsa this morning, and I put the chicken in the marinade about 3 hours before grilling it. I will be making this again because it is a very nice low-cal low-fat meal! Thank you, Mazola!

Easy Watermelon Martini

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2014
What's not to love about this? My watermelon isn't very sweet, so it really needs just a touch of sugar. This is a nice summer drink. Thanks, Genevieve!

Honey Avocado Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
The taste of this is really good. I think I goofed because I cut the recipe down but maybe didn't use the correct correlation of chicken to sauce. It was too saucy, and I ran out of chicken. So my recommendation until I try this again and edit this review is to add the sauce to the chicken until you have it right. I love all these ingredients, and I really love avocado. It could be that there is just too much mayo! I will work on this until I get it right. I'm sure the submitter of this recipe is just cringing right now reading this. But Runs with Scissors, I did like this and will make it again! I promise!

Best Tarragon Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
In Cook's Notes it says it's OK to use chicken breast, so I did and cubed it rather than shredded it. I also did not use the kelp. It has been a long time since I used the boiling method of cooking chicken, so I thought I'd better try it---especially since it included wine and chicken broth! I don't think it produces a very flavorful chicken, so I'll go back to using the breasts with skin and bones, baking them with salt and pepper and maybe a little of Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute before removing just the chicken itself. It's a lot more flavorful, and I much prefer the texture. But the rest of the recipe produced a very nice result. I will make this again, being sure to use a mix of red onion as well as scallions. Thank you, DeanandBettieVintage!

Summer Veggie Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
I cut this down a lot to suit our needs, but I did follow the recipe. Salt and pepper are needed, and if you like heat, you may have to add a little. My jalapeno wasn't very strong today, so when I went to eat it, I added a little Tajin (a new favorite of mine for sure!). Thanks a lot for this, Lisa S!

Cindy's Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2014
How can you not like this? Yum! We had leftovers from a half turkey breast from Trader Joe's last night, and this looked like the perfect way to extend it. I used fresh cilantro rather than dried and Tajin rather than jalapeno. Otherwise, I did follow the recipe. I used the other ingredients but am not sure of the measurements because I made it to suit our tastes. Excellent! Thanks, SYNDI111!

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
I hope it is OK that I used crimini mushrooms, since they are baby portobellas! I fished out blue cheese chunks from my own salad dressing to fill these, and they turned out great! I was looking for something to go with my dinner tonight, and this just fit the bill totally! Blue cheese? Mushrooms? What's not to like about these?! Thanks for the great idea, Anastasia!

Raspberry-Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2014
The only thing I did different was to grill rather than stove cook the chicken. It was good, but I wondered if the flavor would have been more enhanced with maybe fresh ginger or maybe a touch of cayenne. We ate it as a main course rather than as a salad ingredient. I think that if it were for a salad that cooking it stovetop would work best. I will try it that way next time, Injured Mule. Thanks!

Barramundi With Lemon Basil Sauce

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I used this recipe on halibut because I couldn't get the sea bass it calls for. I think I made a mistake by using my own breadcrumbs because they didn't really get very crispy, so I'd think that some like the Progresso would work well. I made my own version of Old Bay seasoning which turned out very similar to the brand name herbs. The sauce was good, but I did want more flavor on it----some fresh garlic would have been very nice in it. This is a good recipe, and I'll try it again. Thanks, Joanne H!

Mara's Blueberry Chutney

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I cut the recipe down but otherwise followed it as written, adding just a little more lemon to it after tasting it while it was warm. This offers a unique taste for sure! I served it alongside some pork tenderloin that we had, and it was a nice accompaniment! Thanks, Raven!

Portobello Mushroom Pasta with Basil

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I used crimini mushrooms (baby bellas) and followed the recipe as written. I would maybe have preferred to have the pasta a little more done, and I did think it lacked a little moisture---maybe water from the pasta. Balsamic vinegar does tend to make pasta look a little weird, but it does make it taste good. You could always use white balsamic vinegar as an alternative. Thanks, thesmiths!

Spicy Pepper and Onion

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
This is full of flavor and is very versatile in its use--as stated by the submitter. I put some of my leftovers on a turkey sandwich that I had for lunch, and it was great! Thank you, brenda!

Pork Tenderloin (Gluten-Free)

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
I had half a tenderloin which is perfect for the two of us. I did not put the bread crumbs in a bag and shake it but rather just packed it on. I believe it could have used more seasoning for that amount of bread crumbs. The meat should be salted and peppered before adding the crumbs. Thanks, Jansafire!

Quick and Easy Mini Salsa Pizzas

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
This made for a really good lunch for me. I wondered how the salsa would work when it's placed on the bottom of the muffin, but it soaked in just perfectly. I did add some bacon (a piece that was already cooked from the day before), but it really wasn't very necessary. The muffin, salsa, and cheese was perfect as it was. Thanks for lunch, SgtSquishy!

Pork Chops with Sweet Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
The only change I made was to grill the pork chops rather than cook them on stovetop. The onions were really good done that way, but I felt that the mustard sauce was missing something---I can't really put my finger on what it was. It could be that the onion wasn't really sharp enough to add the needed flavor that I thought it needed. Maybe I've been eating too many full-flavored foods lately! We did enjoy our dinner tonight, so thanks, Shelbylyn!

Gunnar and Raven's Burgundy Sauce

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
This was excellent! I cut the recipe in half but followed the recipe except for using a Cabernet Sauvignon rather than a burgundy (that's what was on hand). I must admit that while I was heating it for the photo tonight I was distracted and almost ruined it! It was still totally yummy. I would make this again for sure! Great stuff! Yum! Thank you, CRANKYDOLL!

Apple Crisp Muffins

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
I cut this recipe to 4 servings and got 8 muffins. I used bread flour in place of the kamut flour since that is supposed to be a good sub according to sources on the Internet, and I left out the cardamom. When I tasted the batter, I added some salt because it seemed lacking. I was surprised that there was no baking soda added since I'm used to that when using buttermilk; I do realize that the baking powder was upped probably to cover that. I wanted more sweetness--not a lot, but some. They definitely need the crumble on top that was mentioned in the cook's notes.

Malaguena Lemon and Dill Vinaigrette

Reviewed: May 26, 2014
This is excellent! I have used it to brighten up several recipes lately that lacked flavor, and it made a HUGE difference. I love that it is full flavored. That being said, I don't think I want it on my salad every night, but it is perfect to add to pasta, to meat that lacks flavor, to anything that needs flavor! Thank you very much, Don, because I'll use it on many occasions!

Delicious and Easy Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
I thought this was going to be way overcooked by leaving it in the water for that long. It was PERFECT! I really liked this, and it was good without any salt or pepper on it----just some butter. Yum! Yum! Thank you, caquilter!

Quick Creamed Ham and Eggs

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
This is exactly what the recipe is supposed to be! I did add a little Tajin to mine. I could have used a little more flavor, but that's not what this was advertised to be. So in that respect, this fit the bill. I do think that you could use less sauce for the amount of egg and ham. A biscuit would maybe have produced more flavor, too, than my English muffin. I'm thinking one of those biscuits with thyme or rosemary in it. We did enjoy having this, and it served us well tonight for dinner. Thanks, jeffy!
