Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2004
I didn't follow this exactly, but I did do a number of things from this recipe. Here's what I did: I used a thinly sliced meat that you find in the market instead of the flank steak. I also then didn't use any of the wet ingredients, except using the lime juice at some point during the cooking, and just used the dry ones as a rub on it (basically, the ingredients from salt down to paprika in the first set). I cooked it in a pan on the stove, sliced it small, and put it in corn tortillas and topped it off with white onion, cilantro, and a little hot sauce. It was spectacular. I didn't follow it exactly, but I got something wonderful out of it. Would highly recommend it.

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2004
This was excellent. My Aunt ran into a snag in bringing a vegetable for Thanksgiving, and I found this at the last minute, made it, and it was GONE!!! It was easy to make and some of the easiest recipes are usually the best. Definitely a keeper!!!!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2005
SOOOOO Easy and SOOOOO good. I've made this recipe a number of times. The only thing I added was I added sliced mushrooms and onions to the last time I made it. But, with or without those, it was perfect. Would HIGHLY recommend this one.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
This recipe is spectacular. I made it for a big crowd and tripled the recipe, and aside from the fact that my leftovers the next day were crummy because the idiot behind the stove left the stove on simmer for a number of hours and dried the meat out... it was a keeper that everyone loved!!! ;-) Will make again. It was super simple, especially when using the Chop Wizard to chop the onions and peppers.

Chicken Supreme IV

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
It was excellent. I will try to see if I can change it so it maybe is a little lower in fat (the 3 tablespoons of oil did not cut it for browning the chicken and keeping the bread crumb mixture on it, so we had to use more), but it was excellent. Will make this again

Cajun Skillet Surprise

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
This was excellent. I found that all the meats could be precooked. Pre-cooked sausage (like using Hillshire Farms sausage), precooked shrimp, and cooking the chicken ahead of time all wouldn't have affected this recipe. But, I enjoyed this over rice, and it was spectacular. Will make it again.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
This recipe is absolutely fabulous. I omitted the bacon and the garbanzo beans (since garbanzo beans just don't seem right in baked beans) and doubled the pinto beans to compensate. I've made this a few times. It's wonderful. Moved now to my cookbook.

Coconut Ambrosia Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
This was excellent. I've made it three times now, and it's been great!!! The first time I made it by the book, but the next time, I made it with a small package with banana pudding mix in it, and it added a lot of flavor, as well as adding a can of fruit cocktail to add a better variety of fruit to it. It is a great recipe!!!

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
I've now made this a few times. It's absolutely wonderful!! Quick, easy to prepare, and just let it simmer for 30 minutes, and you have a great sauce. I used it as a pizza sauce, and it was wonderful. Used the leftovers for spaghetti, and it was great there, too.

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
We altered it, too, with the suggestions provided because I knew going in it was going to be bland, and it just was not very good. Sorry.

Tortellini Salad with Grilled Tomato Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
This was excellent. There were a ton of ingredients, but it came out very well, and we all loved it, including my very picky wife. This is DEFINITELY a keeper.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
EASY and REALLY GOOD. Will enjoy trying it with an even better barbecue sauce. I used Bulls Eye with Guinness. It was excellent!!! Super easy to throw together. Update: It was really good the first day, not so much the second. Leftovers the next day didn't taste nearly as good. Gets a star knocked off for that.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
EXCELLENT RECIPE!!!! I didn't follow the directions exactly because I TOTALLY forgot to marinate this for 20 minutes prior to cooking. OOPS!!! Next time I will because I know it will taste even better if I do. I did follow the recipe exact and didn't double anything. I might add a bit more ginger, but it was perfect. I even used the sauce to saute vegetables. It was great!! Will make this again REALLY soon.

Lower Fat Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Absolutely amazing recipe. We made a few minor adjustments, which actually made it healthier. We substituted brown sugar for white sugar, and instead of a cup and 3/4 of flour, we used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup of white flour. It came out spectacular. We added a touch more vanilla, too, and we upped the bananas to 3. It was a great recipe. Will make it again (in fact, we're making a second loaf tomorrow).

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Falafel, not so much. Tzatziki sauce, very good. So, we tried to make the falafel, and it just didn't work. Even though a small part of it not working was us doing it on the George Foreman Grill (as one reviewer suggested) to cook, the taste was what killed it. It wasn't horrible, but it tasted more like a fake Stove Top Stuffing than it did actual falafel. Wasn't our cup of tea. However, we did make the Tzatziki sauce, and it was wonderful. I will use the abundance of leftovers (we made more than just a 6 oz cup of yogurt) with Gyros tomorrow.

Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
This was spectacular and SUPER easy. My wife is vegetarian, and so instead of turkey, I used Morningstar crumbles. Couldn't tell a difference (well, kinda; ground turkey still would have been better) ;-) But, otherwise, didn't change a thing. It was wonderful. My one year old loved it, too. WIll make it again in a heartbeat!!

Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
It was a good recipe, but a little bland. Next time, we need to add seasoning to it to give it some flavor. Otherwise, it was a great recipe. Needs some tweaking.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
would have been even better if I didn't slightly overcook it and burnt the bottom. ;-) Great flavor, easy to make. Will make this again and again.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
Turned out great. As per someone else's suggestion, we added marinated artichokes chopped up and chopped olives, and it added to the flavor. It was spectacular. I might add more veggies to it to make it even healthier, but it was a great salad.

Cinnabun Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
This recipe was good, but one change I made needed me to do lots of tweaking, and I'll have to re-do the recipe. I didn't like the thought of using shortening, let alone butter-flavored shortening. So, I used a half cup of applesauce instead. Well, it added too much liquidity, and after leaving the dough in the fridge for an hour, the dough was WAY too doughy. We had to add a lot more flour to it, and as a result, the dough didn't have as much flavor as it could have. So, with some tweaking, this could be a great recipe.
