Calgary Dinner

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2014
This was great, and my husband loved it! I did have to make a few minor substitutions based on what I had on-hand, though. I used a mixture of sheep sausage and ground bear instead of the ground beef, and cheese slices instead of a blend of shredded cheeses. I otherwise stuck with the recipe as listed, and it was just fantastic. Warm, filling, savory, and delicious paired with a salad.

Puff Pastry Salmon Bundles

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
I was delighted by how easy this fancy-looking and photogenic dish was to make! I substituted crescent roll dough for puff pastry (shortening the bake time to 16 minutes) and only had canned asparagus on hand, but was very pleased with the results. My husband typically refuses salmon outright because of its strong flavor, but enjoyed his piece and didn't make a fuss about leftovers the following night.

Alaskan Halibut Caprese

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
I made this recipe exactly as described and it turned out great. My husband, who is not much of a fish eater, consumed his piece with minimal grumbling.

Hot Dog Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
Sounds crazy, but tastes good, is easy to prepare, and is very forgiving of modifications.

Take-Out Fake-Out Pollo Con Crema

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
So good! My boyfriend eyed the finished product doubtfully, but gobbled up every bite he was served. It even made for good leftovers. I'll be making this again!

Victoria's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
This is good! My father makes a similar dish that uses sour cream instead of mayo, and he adds plenty of thinly-sliced onions to it as well. For this particular dish, I really enjoy the addition of halved grape or cherry tomatoes.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
This is my signature contribution to my family's holiday gatherings! Rich and delicious, it makes for great comfort food, too. I use a little less rosemary than the recipe calls for, though, based on feedback from the relatives.

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
Quick and easy, this dish looks and tastes like it required much more work. It's a good go-to if you need to impress someone in a pinch.

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
I used seasoned cream cheese, as recommended by other reviewers. They were very cute and well-liked by my coworkers at the company Christmas party. My boyfriend was suitably impressed, too.

Red Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
I always hate giving bad reviews, but this was pretty terrible. I made the recipe as listed and my boyfriend and I couldn't eat it. The addition of butternut squash and extra half&half the next day made it somewhat more tolerable.

Creamy Reuben Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
I made this recipe as listed, minus caraway seeds, and it was incredible! My boyfriend gave it rave reviews and didn't tire of it even after a few nights of leftovers. We both agreed that it is going into our regular rotation. I shared some with a friend of mine who can't stand swiss cheese and even she raved over it, asking that I bring some to work for her. Five stars from this satisfied cook!

Cheddar Chicken Spirals

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I used "Normandy blend" vegetables -- with zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli -- and resisted the urge to tinker with it further, and I'm glad I did! This actually exceeded our expectations, and my picky husband couldn't get enough of it. This will definitely become a "comfort food" addition to our regular meal lineup. We didn't find the flavor of the mayo overwhelming at all, but if you absolutely cannot stand the stuff, try substituting sour cream as other reviewers have suggested. Also yummy!

Sweet Mustard Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
I really wanted to like this. The ingredients sounded right, the marinade looked and smelled delicious, and it even smelled great on the grill. The results were tender, but the marinade really didn't add any flavor. It wasn't bad, but it won't be something I'll make again. Sorry!

Bean Salad Medley

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
This was actually my first foray into the world of bean salads. My husband bought an interesting variety of canned beans while on his last shopping trip, and it happened to include everything this recipe called for, so it was perfect. Made everything as described minus green pepper (I subbed paprika for flavor) and it was a hit. Hubby asked that this be added to our "regulars." I look forward to experimenting with it. Thanks for sharing!

Creole Tuna

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
This is good! I followed the advice of one reviewer and was sure to use UNDRAINED tomatoes and the consistency turned out great. I omitted the salt because of the canned ingredients and creole seasoning. The end result didn't have as much kick as I would have liked, so I added another teaspoon of Creole seasoning and a few dashes of hot sauce. Yum!

Vermicelli Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
I jazzed it up with some fresh lemon juice and served with lemon wedges for garnish. I thought it was pretty good. My husband promptly declared this one of his favorite foods of all time -- no small feat!

Chocolate Chip Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I left out the cinnamon and used chocolate caramel chips, and this turned into a sweet (but not overpowering) bread that my husband and his buddies loved. They couldn't stop asking for more! Light, fluffy, and moist. This is a keeper!

Stuffed Baby Yorkies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
This was great! I used leftover pot roast and it worked wonderfully. It did take significantly longer than 12 minutes to brown, though, and I agree with the other reviewer about using a little less oil. Aside from that, four thumbs up -- my husband and I both enjoyed our meal.

Brunch Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
This was pretty good the first day and delicious on the second. I did use low-fat mayo, 2% Velveeta, and turkey bacon; in the future, I think I'll use real bacon because the turkey bacon took on an unpleasant texture. My husband loved the combination of his favorite foods!

Slow-Cooked Steak Fajitas

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
These turned out even better than I expected! I added some corn and lime juice and it really added to the dish. Next time I make it, I'll use a little more cornstarch because it came out on the watery side. The leftovers make a great chili starter, too!
