Garlicky Fried Pork chops

Garlicky Fried Pork chops

Instead of frying I grilled my pork chops to a nice sear, then removed and baked at 300 F until cooked through (they were VERY thick pork chops). Delicious! A big hit - will be trying again! — fridays_888 11/4/2011
Beef Casserole with Creamy Cheese Pasta

Beef Casserole with Creamy Cheese Pasta

It turned out a little on the greasy side for us - possibly because of the ground beef we used. The cheese sauce also didn't seem to have much flavor. 10/20/2011

Chicken Enchiladas

I was skeptical, but the beans really add a lot of flavor and depth to the dish. For more variety you can use cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken. Also great with olives and/or mushrooms! — asasser 10/20/2011
Honey-Glazed Pork Chops

Honey-Glazed Pork Chops

Excellent flavor! This was very simple to make and will probably become a family favorite. You can add a dash of red pepper flakes for extra flavor and a little kick. — tyson 9/2/2011
Simple Spinach and Red Bell Pepper Pasta

Simple Spinach and Red Bell Pepper Pasta

The flavor was quite weak. This may be due in part to not finding until the last minute that we were out of fresh garlic, but I don't think that alone would fix it. I ended up drizzling a vinegar-wine sauce over the top (1/2c white vinegar 1/2c marsala wine, reduced to 1/2c, thickened with a pinch of flour). If we made this again I would plan to grill some portobellos and serve them sliced over the top as a protein. — lizmari 9/2/2011
BJ's Chicken Marsala

BJ's Chicken Marsala

Excellent dish (although I used a slightly different recipe)! The Marsala sauce can also be made by whisking in a beurre manie (combine 2T flour, 1T butter and mix, sort of like a pastry dough) a little at a time after letting the sauce reduce. This adds a tiny bit of fat to the recipe but allows the sauce to thicken and better cling to the chicken. I also added 1c of mushroom broth to the marsala wine prior to reducing. It helps accentuate the earthy tones of the rest of the dish and contributes a lot to the overall flavor. — 1MoreCreative 9/2/2011
