Grilled Garlic Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
This is a terrific recipe! I've made this a few times now for company and people always ask for the recipe and are excited to learn a new way to cook zucchini, especially for the grill. I've taken the advice of some other commenters and used part olive oil, part butter, instead of all butter. I cut the zucchini lengthwise into four pieces; placed the zucchini strips on the grill, curved side up where appropriate. I used a basting brush to coat the top side with the butter/garlic/parsley marinate. After about 5 minutes I flipped the zucchini strips, basted the other side, and sprinkled with parmesan. 4 or 5 minutes later, they’re ready to come off the grill, looking gorgeous and tasting delicious. I highly suggest adding this recipe to your grilling repertoire.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
A.) SO EASY B.) DELICIOUS C.) SO EASY • The husband's reaction when I had him taste it upon walking in the door, "Uhh! Ohh! That's yummy!" And after dinner, he told me that he's looking forward to bragging up my cooking to his parents again this weekend. That's all I can ask for, eh :) • I love all the helpful suggestions, so, in turn, I like to let others know how I've tweaked: I used a cheaper "Pork Loin Boneless Roasting Pork". I rubbed on a bit of salt, black pepper and garlic powder and then, easy peasy, put the pork in the slow cooker, covered with root beer and walked away for 5 hours. After 5 hours, I snagged the pork out of the cooker and into a large bowl. It pulled apart with hardly any effort! I discarded the root beer, returned the (pulled) pork to the slow cooker and added the BBQ sauce (I use Dan the Smokin Man's BBQ Sauce, local Michigan product!). Warmed for an hour or so and then served. I will happily make this dish again.

Simple Grilled Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Delicious!! Prepared as directed, including the poster's additional suggestion of adding cinnamon (I didn't have allspice or garam masala, however.) Marinated for just over an hour. Served with grilled zucchini, insalata caprese, and the onions (grilled) that had been marinating with the lamb. Next time, I'm marinating the zucchini, too! Served to my boyfriend and his parents, and they (we) were duly impressed. Whew. Noor FTW!!!

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
So good! (And I ran the calories, less than 350 a serving!) It's a very versatile recipe, too. I've made it as instructed (except for the mushrooms - yuck) and I've played with the ingredients and it always turns out amazing. This last time, I added a cup of diced acorn squash, plain Greek yogurt in the place of half and half and Mexican blend of shredded cheese in the place of cheddar. It was excellent! I look forward to trying it with breakfast sausage in the place of ham in the future. Ooh, and a gyro themed strata, too. ...such an exciting recipe!!

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
Ooh! We really liked this. Of course, being one with an inability to follow recipes verbatim, I made some (just a few!) modifications; some, per users suggestions; some, to get rid of ingredients I had on hand. I put 3 frozen chicken breasts in a slow cooker, used an 11 oz can of tomato sauce instead of 4oz, added a can of Rotel (diced tomatoes with chilies) and about 3/4 cups of chopped onions, and only added 1/2-3/4 of the packet of taco seasoning. I also added about 3/4 cups of water. Slow cooked on high for 3.5 hours. I was able to break apart the chicken after 2.5 hours. Served with a bit of cheese (Kraft Mexican Blend) and sour cream in a tortilla wrap (Ole Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb keeps the meal in the healthy-zone and still tastes good :). P.S. I cubed sweet potatoes, microwaved for about 9 minutes and added to the slow cooker with about 45 minutes left to go. They made a great healthy side dish when served with some extra sauce. So yummy!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
So good! It's a chili, so of course I didn't measure everything exactly; and, per some suggestions, instead of bacon bits I cooked up some bacon and used the grease to saute the onions, peppers and garlic. The bones of this recipe are so spot on that it's a delicious and fun recipe to play with. Not my first time making this recipe, so I can say that: following the directions exactly or getting creative with it will both lead to a great chili. Enjoy! (We are :)

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2012
A GREAT way to use up leftover meat! I followed the recipe with very few exceptions: I added minced garlic to the sauté and frozen peas, diced pork and diced steak in the place of chicken to the stir fry (since I had leftovers of both meats; largely diced). This turned out terrific and when I asked my husband how it compared to carry-out, he said he liked it better :D • The next time I make this, I will probably spray Pam instead of use butter, sauté some diced zucchini in with the onions and remember, for the love of Pete, to use COLD rice.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
Nice little dish. And it's something new for me to do with tuna that doesn't involve two slices of bread! I followed the recipe pretty much verbatim, but I did take another user's suggestion of using a tsp of olive oil and a tsp of peanut butter in the place of sesame oil, since I had none. I thought the patties turned out moist and delicious ... and I look forward to fiddling with the recipe and making it my own in the future!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
A must have recipe. Delicious and easy! I have yet to make this for company without being asked for the recipe. It's a definite crowd pleaser. As others have indicated, a little green is a nice addition to the dish: chopped green onions or parsley or something, and the cook time will be closer to 55 minutes or an hour.

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Great! I took the advise of other commenters and marinated for at least 2 hours. So delicious. Everyone raved about how this tuna turned out. Like others have mentioned, if it comes out dry, it's been over cooked. We went with medium/medium rare. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
What to do with all that Christmas ham? Take that ham bone and simmer it in half water, half chicken broth for an hour or so before adding the other ingredients. I added some garlic, thyme and bay leaves, per other users suggestions. This makes up a really great soup.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
We made up a roast, which was a lot for the two of us. So we repurposed some of the leftovers into a smaller portion of this stew. It was very tasty, and brought new life to our leftovers.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
Mmmmmm. We have a couple of 12oz ramekins that we served this in. I cut the recipe down to the 1 serving size and was still able to give us each a substantial bowl of deliciousness.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
I use this honey mustard recipe all the time. I'm surprised it took me this long to review it. Per other users suggestions, I use 1/2 yellow mustard and 1/2 Dijon mustard for the "prepared mustard," otherwise, I prepare as indicated. This is very easy to make and very versatile. I've used it on salads (goes great with hard boiled eggs and ham), sandwiches and as a sauce for chicken tenders.

Cinco de Mayo

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
Made pretty much everything ahead of time and on the day of, we just heated everything back up in tins on the grill. Everybody loved the different meats to add to their tacos shells or burrito tortillas and the corn casserole is always a hit.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
We prefer it with less-to-no brown sugar (spicier instead of sweeter), otherwise, this is terrific. Sometimes we'll eat this as suggested, other times we'll add chicken or steak and all the fixins. Lately, we use this instead of refried beans, saving us all those calories and the sodium. Oh the sodium!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
Delicious. I may use this for my meat sauce recipe from now on, too. Terrific for dinner parties, because it can be prepared the day before, and a good lasagna is ALWAYS appreciated.
