Chicken Meatballs and Spaghetti

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
This was really good! The sauce was very light and enjoyable. I used the ground chicken in the meatballs and they were fantastic! I did bake them on 350 for about 20 minutes, per the suggestion of another reviewer. I prefer this to browning them in a skillet because it's easier. =) The chicken made such nice meatballs. They were very filling and much better than beef meatballs! The only change I have made (after making this several times, it's such a hit!) was adding sauteed onion, green pepper, and garlic, and putting more seasoning in the sauce. A+!

Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
The potatoes alone get 5 stars. I wanted to eat them all out of the bowl before they made it to the oven! I followed the recipe as written except I added cheese to the potatoes. I used Daiya cheddar substitute because it's soy and gluten free. Yum!! I followed the bottom layer recipe almost exactly, though I used green beans and broccoli instead of tomatoes and peas (don't like them), and added mushrooms. For the meat substitute I used Boca crumbles. This is definitely going on rotation in my house!! Thank you.

A Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
This was simple and tasty. We skipped the barbeque because it just didn't seemed to suit and seasoned to taste. We'll make this again, thanks.

No Skill Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
This is outstanding and amazingly easy. I made it with peaches, strawberries, and plums. The crust was perfect (thanks especially to my stand mixer)! It was a big hit at home and I will definitely keep this one on file. If you're looking for a quick, yummy dessert, this is a great one. This crust is so good I've also used it for pie. I've gotten a ton of compliments on the crust and requests for the recipe. It's the best pie crust I've made.)

Southern Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
Very good. I subbed white onion for red because it's what I had on hand, skipped the vinegar, and used turkey bacon instead of "real" bacon because I don't eat pork. I also used veggie broth in place of chicken broth. I think it needed way more broth than called for. I'll make my own little version of this again. It was a great side dish for barbecue!

Cajun Appetizer Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
I made these for a Mardi Gras get together and they were gone in no time! I thought I'd made too many but it turns out I didn't make enough! I made one batch with ground turkey (the other with beef, which I don't eat) and they were excellent. As a side note - if you use turkey you'll need to throw in some extra bread crumbs to help it form a better meatball. I followed the recipe exactly, though instead of putting the sauce on top I just tossed it in the crock pot. Delicious! For the seasoning I used the "Creole seasoning blend" from this site. It's an excellent seasoning and not at all salty, which seems to be the bulk of complaints about this recipe. It was so good I'm making more for dinner tonight. I think I'll toss them with some rice. Yum! Thanks for sharing.

Spicy Cajun Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
The first time I made this I really didn't care for it. I did not like the flavor of the thyme or oregano at all. I made it again without those 2 ingredients, lessened the salt to 1 tbsp, and added a pinch of chipotle and some Emeril seasoning. Much better! I also added a little extra oil to the seasoned mix because I thought the shrimp were too saturated with seasoning the first time. That helped a lot.

Easy Deviled Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This was very good. I used spicy mustard, fat free mayo, fat free spread, and splashed a little worcestershire. Didn't have stuffing mix but bread crumbs and some herb panko subbed just fine. The cooking time listed is too long. We left it in for about 45 minutes and it could have come out sooner. I will make this again, but adjust the cook time. It has a lot of potential. Thanks.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I feel so dumb for ever buying chocolate covered strawberries! I never realized they were SO easy! I melted my chocolate/shortening in a mini-crockpot since I don't own a double boiler. I used store brand chocolate chips and they taste like they came from a chocolate store. I can't wait to serve these to my family and friends. Oh, and I had extra chocolate so I covered some banana chunks. Mmmm...

Tres Leches III

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Whoever said you have to use a stand mixer was right. I used mine to make the batter, transfered it to a different bowl, then used the mixer to make the egg whites peak. I followed the directions exactly. This cake is so delicious! If I ordered it for dessert at a restaurant I would not be disappointed. Thanks!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
I thought this was really good. No, it's not super authentic but that doesn't mean it wasn't tasty! It did need two cups of broth instead of 1.5 (as christina b said you need twice as much liquid as rice...) but otherwise I made this as written and the flavors were very nice. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Sorry but these just weren't good. The cooking time listed isn't accurate. They were super mushy. I won't make them again.

Fat Free Tartar Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
I was looking for a quick tartar sauce recipe since ours had expired (oops!) and we had leftover fish. I didn't have green onion on hand, and I didn't measure the mayo, relish, and red wine vinegar, but this was still so tasty! I look forward to actually measuring my ingredients. Thanks! You saved my leftovers.

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Excellent! The only "change" I made was adding more garlic. My husband said these are the best mashed potatoes he's ever had! The consistency was absolutely perfect. With a little more garlic, these will rival the garlic mashed potatoes at my favorite restaurant. This one is definitely a keeper!!! (Addition: I made these again this week and used 6 large cloves of garlic. Perfect!) (Addition 2: I made the Shepherd's Pie VI recipe on this site and topped the dish with these potatoes...yum!)

Baked Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
This was great! I brown the meat with red wine. I also took the advice of a reviewer and made a broth with 4 bullion cubes and a cup of water and added some cold water whisked with cornstarch. It made a really yummy gravy and gave some good flavor. Otherwise, I follow the recipe exactly. My husband asks for it at least once a month.

Baked Vegetables I

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I made this recipe as written with the exception of boiling my potato chunks for a few minutes before they went into the oven. Even with the boiling they still needed more baking time. Unfortunately the broccoli and zucchini were done, so I pulled the dish out to salvage those (plus my main dish was done). The carrots were also way undercooked. I think the soup mix was too dry so I added some veggie broth just for moisture and I'm glad I at least did that. This has potential but needs some adjustment. I notice that many of the 5 star ratings are based on adjustments and not the original recipe. Maybe I'll make it again combining the reviews and some adjustments.

Brilliant Sauteed Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
This recipe easily gets 5 stars as written (it's very frustrating when people make a bunch of changes and give a recipe 5 stars). This was very easy and delicious. I would not be disappointed if I ordered it in a restaurant. The brown sugar and red pepper flakes were a fantastic balance of sweet and spicy. This is a keeper.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
I originally rated this 3 stars but after reheating it and trying some a few hours after it baked, I have to adjust that rating. I made it as stated, and it's just not good. It's got a weird taste. Definitely read the reviews on this one. It seems like a lot of the people who gave it 5 stars were rating their own version of the recipe. The Spinach & Artichoke Dip Restaurant Style recipe on this site is much better.

Shrimp and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
I made this because it had such great reviews but I really didn't care for it at all. I followed the recipe almost exactly - except I followed a reviewer's suggestion of adding extra seasoning and sherry instead of white wine. It tasted way too sweet, like a bowl full of cream. We ate the shrimp... I'm so glad I've had good seafood bisque before. If this had been my first bowl I never would have eaten it again.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This was so delicious! My husband raves about it and swears it's the best lasagna he's ever had! Even my in-laws and my husband's super picky grandmother agree. That's pretty impressive! I followed the recipe almost exactly. Though I've made minor alterations over time. I use ground turkey instead of beef because I don't eat beef. I also use hot Italian sausage in place of mild. I use extra garlic and seasoning, and add a little green pepper, but that's a taste preference. I did add a pinch of nutmeg to the ricotta mixture like someone recommended - not that I know if it makes a difference - ha. I also used wheat lasagna noodles and fat free (store bought) ricotta; it didn't negatively affect the taste at all. This is a staple in our house, and I get requests from friends and family quite often. Thanks for making me look like a great cook! =) Addition - I've had to adjust my diet since originally making this recipe. Last night I made this recipe but subbed gluten-free noodles for regular, and tofu for meat. I also added loads of veggies to the sauce. Still outstanding!
