Reviewed Portuguese-Style Fish Stew
"Pretty good. I added a few spices since my husband and I like a little kick: some cumin, chipotle chili powder, and oregano. I also used chicken stock instead of water and added a couple teaspoons of corn starch with the fish to thicken the sauce (the hubby believes liquidy soup should only be served when one is sick). Topped each bowl with a little shredded cheese and some diced avocado, yum! Next time I will make sure to dice the veggies; it looked nice with them sliced but they were difficult to eat.
Reviewed Chicken Fajitas
"I only used the recipe for the marinade, so I can't really rate too high, but I loved how wonderful the chicken and veggies tasted. The cilantro was a little strong, but I love cilantro so I didn't mind. I also added a little cumin, and will probably either add more or some cayanne pepper in the future for some more heat. I also made some home made flour tortillas instead. Next time I will definitly try the avacado spread. Great job!
Reviewed Chicken Enchiladas
"These are so yummy! I am so happy that I've finally found an enchilada recipe that packs a ton of flavor. I took the advise of previous reviewers and looked up "Mexican Spice Blend", and it's cumin, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, chili powder, and oregno. I diced the chicken before cooking and coated the chicked with the blend. I also used white onions instead of red, which was a preference call, and layered the ingredients instead of rolling them. This is a recipe that's worth a try!
Reviewed Sloppy Joes with Maui Onion Straws
"Wow, so, so good. I've never even HAD sloppy joes before, much less made them, but I love trying and making new things, so I thought I'd give this a try. We were not disappointed! I only used one pound of very lean ground beef, so I halved all the ingredients except for the garlic and jalapenos since we always like a bit extra. I also used apple cider vinegar since I didn't have red wine vinegar but I thought it added a sweeter taste, and will use again next time. I also was lazy about making the fried onions and just used the canned variety (I know, so bad!), but next time I will make them since it was soooo good! A side note, my husband grew up eating the canned variety of sloppy joes, and he LOVED these so much more! This recipe is a winner!
"Oh wow, so good! I admit, the first time I cooked this it seemed like so much work (even with it being really yummy). The second time was a breeze. I just made sure everything was chopped and measured before I even started cooking, which really helps when making the sauce because you have to be very quick or the roux will burn and ruin the dish. I also added a bit more cheese, plus used 1 part Velveeta to 3 parts Cheddar for the creaminess. My stepdaughter loved the meal as is, and the only thing I do differently is add more Cayenne when she's not with us. The best thing is the leftovers are almost better than the meal!
Reviewed Halibut Veracruz
"Loved it! I've used this on Tilapia and Halibut, and both turned out great! I added just a tablespoon of butter for some more flavor, omitted the olives since neither my husband or I like them, and served the fish with the sauce on top. It turned out so beautiful we actually took pictures of our plates!
"Wow! So yummy and so simple to make. I did have to improvise slightly: I roasted and peeled one red bell pepper myself. My grocery store didn't carry frozen creamed spinach, so I thawed and drained some plain frozen spinach and added cream cheese to the mixture. I also used a small black iron skillet to heat it all in and covered the dip with parmesan cheese, which created a nice melted crust on top. It turned out so wonderful that by the time the last guests arrived to our party, there was almost none left!
Reviewed Chicken Cordon Bleu
"Really good and really easy. I had to bake the chicken for a little longer, and I made a really simple wine and lemon sauce to pour over it, but was really impressed with how easy it all came together. And my husband was actually worried I had slaved over the stove for hours making it when really it's one of the easiest dishes I have ever made!
