I made this recipe and added it to tasty planner because I thought it sounded good and easy. I thought it was just okay. I think that it needed more tuna and I think that the directions to leave in the oven for 25 minutes was too long because some of the noodles that were soft became crispy after I took them out of the oven.
It was so so. After a little tweeking it would be a good recipe.
I ended up nixing the cookies, using about 2 1/2 cups of milk, and a whole lot more mozzarella (and squash) than called for. Also, I used frozen squash and it worked out just fine (and took a lot of time out of the preparation). I added some olive oil to the puree because it just seemed too thick even with the added milk... maybe it was just me, but it worked out just fine wither way. Like DELICIOUS just fine. :) 5 stars to this recipe. MAKE IT.
SOOOOOOOOOOOO SWEET. Should be listed as a dessert! Too sweet for my tastes (and my stomach, unfortunately), and the coconut adds a weird and somewhat unpleasant texture to the topping — I'd have preferred an extra cup or two of nuts instead. I probably won't be making this again. I do have a sweet tooth, but I like interesting flavors with my sweet, and prefer things like Red Vines over chocolate and fruit sorbet over ice cream, so I guess I'm not into super rich things. This was too rich for me. However, if you're into super rich desserts, this might be for you! Also, I used canned yams — I think if I'd used fresh, it wouldn't have been as sweet.
Oh. Pet peeve. The orange ones are yams. Not sweet potatoes. Those are white. :)
Nothing special, just good roasted potatoes with a little seasoning. I used regular russet potatoes, btw, and a lot of them. It ended up taking close to two hours to cook properly but I don't know if that's because I used different potatoes or what. I also increased the amount of herbs/butter proportionate to the amount of potatoes I used, but I could barely taste anything but the butter. I'd add lemon juice to the lemon gratings in the future, and maybe some basil or rosemary. Anyways, it's the kind of bare-bones recipe you can play with, which is fun. No big complaints, and if you don't have your own roasted potato recipe this is a good enough place to start.
This was absolutely delicious. It's SUPER spicy though — if you're new to Indian food you might want to start with something a little less hardcore. However, if you enjoy strongly spiced dishes, this is for you! I used ground cinnamon, btw, and had no problems (in case you don't want to buy stick cinnamon special). I pretty much just threw everything in the food processor for like ten seconds and cooked it up and let it simmer until my husband got home. If it does end up too spicy for your taste, try adding a cup or two of water and letting it cook off. :) Anyways, my husband isn't even into spicy dishes and he loved this too! We will definitely be having this again. FYI — depending on your portion preference, this is probably not enough for 4 people — we both had relatively small portions tonight (it's late) and there's only enough left over for 1 more portion. Which we totally just flipped a coin for. :p Recommend highly!
This was like... barely edible. A lot of the proportions seemed off, for starters, and then it was just like... ew. It was creamy and mushy and sicky sweet in a way potatoes should never be. We ate the thing because our food budget is tapped out for the month, but it was pretty gross. I pretty much dumped ridiculous amounts of hot pepper on it in order to be able to eat it at all. :( It was a good idea, it just didn't pan out at all. If you decide to try it, definitely use less honey and less sour cream. Or maybe no honey and no sour cream. It would be better if it were crispy and spicy. Sorry, author. :(
Thanks for your sharing, it's useful.
Thank you Defragmeout! I'm glad you liked it! I think I'll have one myself tonight! =)
The last time I made this, we were out of tomato sauce. My boyfriend suggested using a can of Rotel instead, and it turned out very well. We were kind of "meh" about this recipe before that substitution. Now it will certainly be in our rotation of meals.
Very tasty. I doubled the recipe for each drink, though, as I am a lush.
I added a whole bag of frozen veggies to this and it was epic. Very filling.
I make this nearly every Sunday.
I didn't like the idea of having so much of a slice of bread left over, so I tear the crusts off and use the whole slice to make the toast cup.
Easy to make, delicious to eat and good for you too. What's not to like?
This recipe was SUPER great! And I can't believe how easy it was to prepare. I have to say that due to unforeseen problems, I had to cut the meat in half, the sour cream in half, and the cream of chicken in half. I also doubled the green chilies and the cheese.
I prepared this meal earlier in the day then covered it with foil, stuck it in the fridge, and it was ready to pop into the oven when we got home in the evening. Everyone, RAVED throughout the entire meal. There wasn't a scrap left for the scavengers! Thank you for another great addition to our family favorites.
Add toasted pinenuts
This was as easy as can be and the results were quite nice. I substituted lo mein noodles, added some fresh Thai basil, chopped tomatoes and a twist of lime. We'll definitely have this again.
This is wonderful crowd and family pleasing one dish meal. Add sliced Oranges, Sangria and fresh fruit flan for desert! Skirt Steak also works well!
Also, is there some reason this is tagged with "bowl" like 89786 times?
Ew. Not a fan of "surprise" anything in my food, let alone surprise textures. Just ew.
The family loved it and it was very easy.
This was DELICIOUS. I altered it to include an extra two cups of cooked rice and I cooked the rice WITH the tomatoes (because honey, plain white rice isn't Mexican food) and then drenched the ground beef (I used soy, btw) in enchilada sauce so it would drip down into the rice... yum!!! I also put chopped olives in with the meat, for texture. :)
My whole family enjoyed this meal. We doubled the cheese and the italian packet for more flavor. I would also add more chicken next time as we consumed this meal in one sitting. It is different and delicious!
I used 1 1/2 cups pretzels and like 3 cups hot water, and twice as many strawberries (and sliced them in half) and it seems to have worked well, proportion-wise. We'll find out in 4 hours how it tastes. :p
Doubled the recipe and made my own breadcrumbs from scratch, which was extra yummy. I also cut the tomato sauce with olive oil and used it VERY sparingly as I really hate red sauce. However, for my taste, it turned out WONDERFULLY. One thing — I have no clue how 1/8 tsp of basil is supposed to properly cover the entire top of the dish, so I just put some fresh-picked parsley and basil leaves on each plate as I served it and we ate it that way (plus it looked cool). Family all loved it, and the husband (apparently) took the leftovers to work today. Well done! Don't be afraid to play with the proportions to your liking.
I love this recipe! Especially if you like caraway seed. It's a neat new flavor that can really spice up a traditional meal. Plus red cabbage is so good for you!
