Recipe Reviews #22

Flank Steak with Garlic Roasted Potatoes:


My Rating: 5/5 stars
My Review: YUM! This was one of those sheet pan meals so it was easy for boyfriend to make and I didn’t have to wait so long for it to be done! The meat was tender but, just a little bit chewy (just how I like). All of the veggies were all cooked to perfection and I loved the garlic flavor throughout the whole dish.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 2 Pounds of Flank Steak
  • 2 Pounds of Small Red Potatoes
  • 2 Cups of Broccoli
  • 1 Medium Onion, sliced
  • 1 Red Pepper, cut into cubes
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup of Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of ground cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon of dried oregano
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Italian Sausage and Potato Quick Skillet:


My Rating: 2/5 stars
My Review: This was definitely not nasty or anything but, we’ve made quite a few sausage skillets and sheet pans in the past and this one takes last place in the flavor department. It was just really plain and the potatoes weren’t completely done while everything else was becoming overdone.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1lb. package of pre-cooked sausage (Italian or whatever flavor links you like), sliced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 2 small white sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into thin circles
  • 1 zucchini, sliced into thin circles

Chicken Chowder:


My Rating: 3/5 stars
My Review: We’ve also made a few delicious chicken chowders in the past so we know what’s good. This one was just rather plain, there really wasn’t much flavor at all. A lot of salt and pepper needed to be added. It was just a simple, mediocre chicken chowder with a hint of coconut milk that was still detectable in the end.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 4 strips cooked bacon, chopped small
  • 2 Tbsp bacon fat, divided
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and chopped
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound red potatoes (or sweet potatoes) cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • Chives, fresh

    1. The first one was so good, it was better than the restaurants! I know… we love sausage skillets and this one just fell flat. 😦 Thanks for commenting!! ❤


    1. I looked through all of my recipe reviews & saw that I actually haven’t reviewed any other “chowders” lol I’ll try to find more to review so I can tell you which ones I prefer. 🙂
      And oh!!! How did you like the Client List?!

      1. I would love that!! Soup recipes are the hardest to nail (IMHO). They sound really simple, but if that broth doesn’t cure properly and those ingredients go awry, you’ve got a “enough leftovers for three days” mess.

        Well, first of all, Jennifer Love Hewitt is still drop dead gorgeous. She was my girl crush growing up and I found myself getting partially distracted because her boobs were everywhere, lol. 😍😍 But on top of that, she’s an excellent actress! The last few episodes I started to hate Riley because she let her f-boy husband almost ruin her life; I would’ve married his brother and kept it moving (but that’s probably also why I’m single asf). It was really good and definitely was a PG-13 reality of some things that happens in the sex work industry. I’m happy you recommended this title! Thank you! ❤️

        1. Yes, exactly!! If the broth isn’t good… everything is ruined!
          I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed The Client List!!! I was so mad about her f-boy husband, too… I was also mad that she went for his BROTHER. I wish she could have found someone else entirely lol. Jennifer Love Hewitt is amazing, isn’t she?! I love her!! Her boobs are def so huge LOL my boyfriend and I noticed how they were everywhere too hahaha. She is so beautiful though and such a great actress. ❤
