Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
This dish was very good. Its a quick and easy recipe to make for dinner. Yet I have to agree with other reviewers that the pork was bit too salty, even if you omit the salt from the Parmesan cheese mixture. I used chicken bouillon because I didn't have beef but I don't know if that makes a difference. In the future, I plan to replace it with low-sodium bouillon. Other than that, thumbs up on this one!

Fourth of July Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I made this potato salad last weekend for a family gathering and it was a huge hit. I had never thought to marinate the potatoes before but it really adds a great dimension to them. I followed some of the suggestions other reviewers had and halved the vinegar and added a touch more mustard. I also added some sweet dill to balance out the vinegar. I used white vinegar and regular mustard since I didn't have cider vinegar or dry mustard on hand. My family doesn't like raw onions so I replaced that with onion powder. The longer you chill the dish before serving, the more the vinegar flavor mellows. This is a great basic recipe to add some custom touches to!

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
Maybe I cooked the beans incorrectly. I followed the recipe except for the jalapeno and red bell peppers and it was just too bland for me.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I tried this recipe tonight for my husband and myself. It was so delicious! To me this dish has all the elements I look for in a top-rate recipe: its budget-friendly, easy to prep, oh so good to eat, and plenty leftover to freeze. We had enough leftovers for at least 2 more meals. Thank you!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
This is a great recipe. I made a few adjustments based on other reviewers' suggestions. I used a packet of brown gravy with 1 cup of water instead of the beef broth and also added 1/4 cup of worcestershire sauce. My suggestion is to cut the worcestershire in half because 1/4 cup was too strong for us. In place of the onion, I used garlic powder in the mashed potatoes. And I also used instant mashed potatoes. Next time, I'm going to use real potatoes because the instant ended up being too gooey once it was cooked. I also used a cup of frozen peas and carrots in place of the mashed carrots. This is a great dish to make prepare ahead of time and put into the oven later. Update: I used red potatoes to make the mashed potatoes and added 1tbs each of worchestershire, A1 and ketchup. Perfect!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
Absolutely the best chicken pot pie I've ever had or made! I've now made this at least 10 times and have tweaked it to be perfect for us. I like to to make my pie two-crusted. I cook the veggies and chicken in chicken broth. Instead of celery I add a couple of chopped red potatoes or extra veggies (I use frozen mixed veggies, its so much easier than chopping them up). I make about 1.5x more of the liquid mixture and I add 1 can of 99% fat free cream of chicken along with two chicken bouillon cubes. I omit the salt because of all the sodium in the bouillon. I also add the veggies and chicken back into the liquid mixture and let it simmer on low for about half an hour to get the flavor to really develop. I use a deep pie dish or a 9 inch pie plate because there's no way all that stuff would have fit in a regular pie dish. I had to roll out the pie crust a little thinner in order for it to cover the bottom of the pie dish. I cooked the whole thing at 375 for about 45 minutes. Thank you for this recipe!

Bangers and Mash

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
I've had delicious bangers and mash at my fav Irish pub so when I saw these bangers in a local UK grocery store, I was super excited. This recipe is great and the dish I made tasted just like the one I had in the restaurant. I butterflied my sausage to get more flavor into the sausage.

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
Good recipe with quick prep for a family dinner. I omitted the basil because I was out and used plain bread crumbs. I think next time I'm going to add another tsp salt because they were a little bland and replace the butter with an egg wash.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
This was a big hit for dinner! The key is to not to open the lid on that pot for the entire 20 minutes. My few changes were that I omitted the jalapeno and cilantro, used 2 cups of broth instead of 1 1/2 cups and replaced green pepper with diced carrots. I also sauteed the rice with the onion and garlic before adding the broth. I think I'm going to try adding a can of tomato sauce next time.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
This is a great-tasting recipe. After reading some reviews, I made a few changes to give it some more flavor. I first mix the beef in a ziplock gallon bag with 1/2 cup flour and 1 tbs each of garlic powder, onion powder and pepper. I then brown the meat and deglaze the pot with 1/2 cup of wine. I add it all to a crock pot where I had dissolved 2 cubes of beef bouillon with 32oz beef broth instead of water. I also add 1 tbs each of ketchup, A1, and worcestershire sauce. I also add my spices, rosemary, parsley, and celery seed. When it was time to add the veggies, I add whatever I have, red potatoes, carrots, sweetcorn, etc. If I want a thicker gravy I add cornstarch dissolved in a bit of water to the stew. I've made this recipe for years now its always a hit.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
A huge hit with us! My husband and I loved it. The only change I made was I substituted whole cloves and cinnamon with their ground counterparts. I also added 8 oz of tomato sauce just to give it another layer. I might add potatoes next time. Delicious!!
