Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2015
LOVED it. Tweaked it a little for more spice, and since I don't like thick, sticky sauce I reduced the cornstarch like others suggested. Forgot to get peanuts at the store so used some almonds I had and it was fantastic! I threw in a bag of stir fry veggies. Made some fried rice with the Kikkoman flavor packet for a side. Empty plates!

Chili-Roasted Kale

Reviewed: May 9, 2015
Delicious just as written. My "I don't eat kale"ers loved it. 4 cups becomes a pretty small amount. I'd call it two servings. Good with chili flakes, too.

Beef Tips and Merlot Gravy with Beef and Onion Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2015
Ok, had to alter a bit, so bear with me. The recipe is great! I subbed Marsala for merlot, and think any red wine would be great. I didn't realize I was low on Worcestershire so in step 1, I added some olive oil and wine to make a thick coating liquid. Then followed the recipe, except I simmered on the stove instead of slow cooker. Took a couple of hours then made rice. No browning sauce here, so just browned per recipe then added ingredients as written. Love how the rice came out and there was plenty of gravy. I always add garlic powder, onion powder and heat (like red pepper flakes) to everything to our taste. Wow! this is a winner!!!! Oh, and had to use sirloin tip steaks that we cut into tips because that's what the grocery store had.

Tuna Piccata Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2015
Really good! I made with rotini. Personally added a little more mayo and a hit of olive oil to juice it up because I also added some fresh finely diced peppers and red onion. Love that it doesn't kill the tuna flavor like some super creamy dishes. LOVE capers so increased a bit. I think black olives would be great here, or some feta cheese. GREAT recipe. Can easily adapt to taste and pantry/fridge ingredients. Tarragon was a nice hit, too. Had a craving but couldn't create a dish until I read this. Great lunch!

Sriracha Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2015
Really good! Added some cooked onion and garlic. Threw some fresh herbs in at the end. I love spice so I doubled the sriracha.

Nacho Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2015
Super clever! Kiddo loves plain old cheese sauce on nacho chips. She loves this! I cut some tortillas into triangles, fried in 350 degree oil, lightly salted and drained them. She had a great snack without having to go to the local fast food taco place. I bet it would be good and kid friendly over veggies, too. As promised, not fancy, just tasty and quick.

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2015
This worked great with breasts cut into strips (I was pushed for time). Strips cooked in 25 minutes at 350. Kids and adults loved it! Followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Crispy and juicy.

Zaxby's Chicken Fingers Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2015
Yummy! Love Zaxby's, love this sauce! All four picky kids devoured it with Parmesean chicken strips. Easy to make and easy to love! The "ready" time is wrong. This takes two minutes to whisk up. Great quick dipping sauce.

The Best Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
Christine, this was AMAZING! I knew I was doing something right when the sweet lady at the Mexican Market asked what I was making with the chilis, and when I told her enchiladas, she smiled brightly and told me that was the best way to go. I had a small dinner party so I made it ahead and refrigerated until I was ready to cook. Doubled the recipe for 18 enchiladas and had enough to serve on the side. Not a single drop left! Thanks for the tips. Was nervous about burning the chilis, but they were perfect. Mine took 2-1/2 minutes. Not sure why folks are concerned about the oregano, I did exactly what you wrote and my folks raved as they gobbled! I could hug you!!!!!!

Best Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
Ok, prepare yourself. If you don't like reviews from people who alter the recipe, don't read this. I used a differnt meat and method (stewed beef roast). But I followed the recipe exactly to make the filling and the enchiladas. Oh, wait, another mod: I made my own sauce from the site, "the best red enchilada sauce." So, still felt like I needed to share how great the components of this recipe are. Really made a delicious enchilada. I'm sure ground beef would've been great also, but I had a small party to feed. No leftovers!!!!!

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2015
If you hate tweaks, skip this review. I only used the recipe and method for cooking a roast which I used for a different dish. It was delicious and perfectly cooked. Just wanted to thank Christy. Helped me with an dinner party.

Jerk Pork with Peach Relish

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2015
This was extremely good! My only change was to use a single, one lb. tenderloin, but I used the ingredients exactly as written. I used the oven cook method at the bottom of the recipe. Took about 30 minutes to reach temperature. The relish sounds odd, but it makes the dish. We ate every bite!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
This is a great basic recipe! Not sure what all the back and forth about boiling, covering, etc. in the reviews is about. I followed the prep/cooking instructions, and I highly recommend you season to your personal taste. The instructions are clear and make a really good finished product. I had fun reading all the Reviews while they were in the oven. I changed the spices up, added a little heat, but that's a normal part of being a home cook. If you don't already know, the easiest way to remove ribs is to scrape with a spoon. Oh, and I had six large green bell peppers and this was sufficient to fill. They aren't super saucy, but they're moist and meaty as written. BDEGER, thanks for sharing! Looks like a lot of people have tried and enjoyed these. Also a very budget friendly meal. There are some good reviewer tips about preparing ahead to make prep even easier. Try and enjoy!

Broiled Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
Easy and great! Check em every few minutes (after the initial 5) and you can clearly see them go opaque. I use real butter, if available, and sprinkle with a little old bay. I cut the shell and the meat to season through and so I can check for temperature. Recipe is easily adaptable to any size tail, just check them! The shell might get a bit dark, but that's o.k! Thanks, Skygretch!

Japanese Onion Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
Great soup! Very similar to Japanese restaurant style. I used better than boullion and sliced button mushrooms. I think the pre-made fried onion rings are great in this as well. Important to allow the veggies to simmer and flavor the broth. You can also add dried noodles to the simmering broth for a heartier soup, but the beauty of this is the simplicity of clear soup. Loved it!!!!!

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: May 6, 2014
Oh my goodness...this is delicious as written. Fun to prepare and you can then stick em in the fridge and go to the pool/beach/mall until you're ready to cook em. When you FEBruary (flour egg breadcrumbs, I.e. Coconut FEC), I suggest pressing in coconut to make it adhere. Don't fear the coconut. I'm not a huge fan of the stuff but I put a lot on and these were fab. I sprinkled the finished product with a SMALL amount of salt. Fam loved it with out sauce.I loved it with some balsamic fig preserves sitting in the fridge, but also loved it without sauce. Trust a southern girl; fry at 350 and you will be loved.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
This was great! I didn't follow exactly, as my tomatoes were small and I had limited ingredients. I mixed herbed goat cheese with bread crumbs, jarred roasted peppers (diced), olive oil and some dried basil and stuffed the tomatoes. Topped with some grated asiago, but I think parm would have been better. Anyway, a delish basic recipe! You could add protein as others have suggested and have an entire meal. It is super quick and easy! I think fresh basil would have made it a knockout, I just didn't have any.

World's Best Potato Salad

Good, but too sweet for our taste. The basic recipe was good, but will try again without sugar.

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
LOVED this! Hearty and makes the house smell great. I halved the recipe and used a little extra stock to make it more soupy (just a personal preference). The spinach in it is fabulous, but I would imagine if you don't have any it would still be fantastic without. I was not sure about "cooking the pasta until done" with the heat set on low, so I boiled my pasta separately and added right before the spinach. Oh, and I only had bowties on hand. A little red pepper flakes for my taste was great, too! YUM!
