Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2014
Definitely use fresh mushrooms and add some sliced onion to the garlic. If more liquid is needed use beef broth. Very rich flavor goes well with noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.

Kate's Easy German Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2014
Not a huge fan of German cuisine, but this is very good. Followed instructions for marinade exactly, including juniper berries harvested in my yard, and let it sit for two days. Instead of a slow cooker I put it in a cast iron Dutch oven at 300 deg for about 4 hr. I believe pot roasts cooked this way are far superior to a slow cooker. And during chilly weather the heat and aroma in the kitchen are much appreciated. Served with red cabbage and noodles. Flavorful and falling-apart tender.

Grandma Jeanette's Amazing German Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2014
This red cabbage recipe was ok but I prefer cabbage cooked other ways. Certainly is easy. I added a small amount of sliced onion. Be sure the apple is firm and tart.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
Use grilling planks for easy indirect cooking over a lit burner. Follow directions about soaking. Planks can usually be used more than once and add a nice smoke aroma and flavor. Several wood varieties are available.

Imitation Crab Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
Excellent. Only used four eggs and instead of salt and pepper I seasoned it with Old Bay. Could easily substitute cooked macaroni or small shells for bread.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
This recipe has good flavor and easy but to call it stroganoff is a huge stretch. No mushrooms. No sour cream. No paprika. No onions.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
Easy, uses spices in the pantry, and does the job tastefully. I always buy taco seasoning (and nearly all my seasonings) from a farmers' mkt and it is way cheaper than the prepackaged stuff. This is great when I run out or just want to make my own.

Crisp Marinated Cucumbers

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
An excellent recipe that can be made zippier with just an easy change. In a saucepan on stovetop or glass measuring cup in microwave warm the vinegar, sugar, and salt stirring until everything is dissolved. As it cools, add up to about one teaspoon of mixed pickling spice in an infuser (or leave it loose if desired). When cooled completely dunk the infuser several time to extract flavor and remove. Stir in the celery seed and pour over the cucumbers and onions. Chill and enjoy.

Best Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2013
Excellent. Used on green tomatoes, yellow squash, cucumbers, and mushrooms with great success. Keep the basic process/ingredients but feel free to change up the seasonings - use Cajun, or Old Bay, or Italian, or whatever you like. Nice crunchy breading but not too heavy.

Rita's Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
Lots of substitutions to use what was on hand, but came out very good. Used fresh spinach from the garden which I added to the skillet the last couple of minutes to just barely wilt. Didn't have sauce so I used stewed tomatoes and added onion, garlic, and Italian seasoning. The pasta was rotini and the cheese provolone.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I've used this technique several times, all with success. Brushed with a homemade browning sauce (basically brown sugar heated just to point of melting burning and beef broth cooked down to half), sprinkled with favorite seasoning salt and fresh black pepper. Fat side up and followed the times adjusted for size of roast. I did leave the oven at 500 degress for initial period. Rest for 15-20 minutes. Medium rare, very tender, and juicy. Easy carving.

Dijon Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
Easy and flavorful. Didn't have apple juice so used orange. Could use beer or water as most of the flavor comes from other ingredients. Recipe says use 2/3 cup and save rest to baste, but unless you double it there won't be any extra. As written it is enough for 4-5 nice size chops. If chops are thick, piercing with fork may help infuse flavor. I only marinated for 3 hr but flavor was still great.

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
Just like mom's basic recipe except she didn't use the hotter oven to start. I add chopped onion and black pepper at each layer. Sometimes use seasoning salt. Easy to add cheese if desired. Also easy to scale down for two people.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Similar to a recipe I've used from old Southern Living cookbook. Traditionally made with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Instead of green onions I use chopped spinach or kale - adds the color and nutrition.

Garlic Kale

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I liked this easy kale recipe. At end I added about 1 teaspoon water, covered and let it steam about a minute. Flavor variation: instead of olive oil, brown a couple slices of good quality bacon, chopped. Proceed as in recipe leaving the bacon bits in for flavor and texture.

Stewed Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
Good base that is easy to adapt to things on hand to give more flavor and veggies. For example, I sautéed onion and chopped mushrooms with a strip of diced bacon. Added tomatoes, broth, a few California style frozen veggies, and some snipped spinach. Used whole wheat pasta. Flavorful and colorful side.

The Sarge's Goetta - German Breakfast Treat

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Since I like scrapple, and I'd just bought some steel cut oats, I thought I'd give goetta a try. Cut recipe in half and the slow cooker was filled to the top. Used quality Gunnoe's pork sausage and added a tablespoon of Mrs Dash Table Blend as suggested in on review. I still prefer scrapple, but this was very good along with fried eggs. Next time I'll be careful to not overcook the oats (left them going about two hours), will probably add minced garlic, may increase the sausage to 1 1/2 lb. and decrease the ground beef by 1/2 lb. to ramp up the sausage flavor. I'll also make sure the meat and onions are very well mixed. Recommend that you slice thin and fry in butter (or better yet bacon grease) in medium high skillet until browned and crispy on both sides. Good country eaten'.

Spanish-Style Chicken and Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Had put a couple chicken breasts in Italian dressing to marinate for grilling just before spotting this recipe. Had a half pound of bulk Italian sausage that I needed to use up. Browned and crumbled the sausage. Shook marinate off the chicken and cut into half inch strips. Picked fresh peppers (just a tad hot) that I cut in rings and tomatoes. Yes, broth would be better than bouillon but didn't have any and the bouillon came out fine. Used basmati rice that has been well rinsed and soaked about 10 minutes before adding, brought to boil then removed from heat and let it sit for about 20 minutes covered. Added tomatoes right at the end. Nice dinner. Next time I might add a little dried Italian seasoning.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Very good oatmeal cookie. I added a shake of salt and used salted butter. Used KAF white whole wheat for half the flour and traditional oats which I think gives a bit more texture than quick oats. Soaked raisins. Moist, chewy, flavorful.
