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.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
Wow!!! How super easy is this!! I didn't really measure what I was putting in, so it was just the juice of one lime (that seemed to be really, really juicy). Omitted the lime zest. But, it was SOOO easy and VERY good. I didn't add the tablespoon of margarine in with the rice, and I felt the rice was lacking a flavor, and that was it. I will make sure to do that next time (got the wife's permission to do so; normally, she doesn't like that in anything). Will make this again in a heartbeat!!!

Orange Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Quick and easy. I didn't exactly measure out the olive oil, dijon, garlic (used 2 cloves), or honey, but it worked well. Didn't have cilantro, so I didn't use it. But, it was a great, easy dressing that I made in a pinch. Will make it again and again.

Twelve Minute Pasta Toss

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
This was spectacular. Like someone else mentioned, I used sun dried tomatoes that were already in oil, then used the oil as the oil to cook with. Other than that, didn't change anything on the recipe. At first, I was concerned about it being dry, but if it was a tad dry, it still had tons of flavor so that it didn't matter. Everything was flavorful. It was spectacular!!! Will keep this and make it again!!

Pineapple Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
This was super easy and great. I couldn't find Pineapple yogurt, so I used Piña Colada yogurt instead. I also omitted the sugar because I thought it was unnecessary. I'll make it again and again.

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.

Cucumber Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Quick, easy, good. I cut the water down to 1 cup and used kosher salt instead of seasoning salt. But, it was wonderful. Will make it again.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Wonderful recipes. I made this in our Vitamix blender to get the batter done, and it came out wonderful. Instead of the graham cracker crust, I used a cup of almond meal. I probably needed more than a cup (I'll possibly even double it next time to give it a slightly thicker crust), and I needed more than the 2 tbsp of margarine. That needs work. But, the cheesecake itself came out wonderful. I left it in the oven for 5 hours after I baked it, then fridged it overnight. It was wonderful. Will make it again.

Pumpkin Spice Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Quick, simple, easy, spectacular. I did add some pumpkin pie spice to it, too. But, it was so good and so easy. Will keep this one for a long time.

Healthy Garden Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This was a HUGE hit!! This was absolutely wonderful. I loved this salad. I made it exact, but I liked the suggestion of adding red onion. I will do that next time. I might add some more veggies too, like zucchini. But, it was spectacular and I've now added it to my cookbook!!!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
My wife made this for me tonight to put on a carrot cake that she got (that had no frosting on it). She halved the recipe, and said it was super easy. No changes, otherwise, but it did come out great!!!

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
This was excellent!!! The chicken was easy to make and it went extremely well inside of a pita with the tzatziki sauce and veggies. The tzatziki was easy to make as well. I didn't know what greek seasoning was, nor could I find it, so I threw in basil, oregano, onion powder, and garlic powder. Paired this with the "Good For You Greek Salad", and this was a great dinner. All we needed was a rice dish to go with it, and this would had been a perfect dinner. But, this recipe is a keeper and I will DEFINITELY make it again. The author of this recipe, however, needs to edit the servings… This serves WAY more than 4 people, and the nutritional facts are SUPER high because of that. So, hopefully that will change because it makes it show how healthy this actually could be.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
What an unbelievable recipe!!! This was SOOOO easy to make, and it was incredibly good. I didn't have graham cracker crumbs (pre-done). I used my amazing Vitamix and it used about two packages of graham crackers ground up. Each package seemed to make one cup of crumbs. Will make this again and again. This is going in my cookbook, for sure!!! The only thing that confused me on this recipe is the serving of 12… This made WAY more than 12 bars. To get 12 bars, you would have to cut these into enormous bars… I made decent size squares and it came out to be about 42 squares.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Holy Cow. This recipe is super simple, and for how simple it is, it is SOOOOOO good!!! Just like one reviewer said, because I was using salted butter, I saw no need to add more salt. I had Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, so I used it. It didn't do anything to it in subtracting flavor or make it cook weird. So, it came out healthier (Well, as healthy as a cornbread with buttermilk and a stick of butter can be)… ;-) All in all, this recipe is TOTALLY a keeper!!!

The Best Ugly Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
Great way to make a turkey. Super Moist, super delicious. I swear the best way to make a turkey is to make it in a roaster. I bought an electric roaster, and it always makes it great; this made it even better. The name of this fits perfectly because the turkey comes out incredibly ugly; it fell apart during cooking, doesn't stay in tact, and don't even think about carving it like a normal turkey. But, on the flip side, it all just fell apart, fell off the bone, and when I just had the breast fall off, I was able to slice it and it worked perfectly. Will continue to make it this way in the future.

Pineapple Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
This was super easy and great. I couldn't find Pineapple yogurt, so I used Piña Colada yogurt instead. I also omitted the salt and sugar because I thought it was unnecessary. I also didn't soak the raisins. I just let them soak in the salad as it cooled, and it worked just fine. I'll make it again and again.

Lower Fat Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
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).
