Vegetable Pastry Purses

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
I was looking for something to serve for Christmas eve lunch. This was easy to prepare and I had all the ingredients on hand except for the marsala wine. I substituted white for the filling and did not make the optional sauce on the side. I did add a half cup shredded cheese. the whole family enjoyed it. Thanks.

Deep South Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
This recipe is a big hit! I have made it a few times now. I use canola oil instead of Crisco, but other than that, I follow to the letter and it is consistently good!

Louisiana Shrimp Creole II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This was great. I can't eat bell peppers anymore, so I had to leave those out and I also omitted the cornstarch. I seasoned it with a small amount of cayenne and Emeril's essence. I served this with steamed rice and breaded, fried okra. It was the perfect meal for a cold winter night!

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2005
I have made this recipe several times in the past 2 years. It is always a huge hit! I have also done it with ricotta instead of cottage, with equally good responses. I use the plain original Ragu old world style, as my kids don't care for chunky tomato sauce. Serve with a good red table wine, garlic bread, salad.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2004
I have made this twice for Irish friends who detest cinnamon in their pie. It is super easy with my handy dandy apple gadget I got from a certain kitchen gadget party! It really is a great pie, I used ready made pie crust and another gadget, the crinkle cutter, to make the lattice. This pie is a snap to make, and I am finding out that I don't care too much for cinnamon and spice in my pie either. Just apples, crust and buttery caramel!!

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2004
This recipe has made me a star! The removing of the membrane is the best cooking tip I have ever seen! I have even used pork spare ribs with this, once I mastered the skills. I have never had them catch on fire. I heat my grill, prepare the ribs, then, when open the grill to lay out the foil, I reduce the heat, place the ribs on the top grill, and then I do not open it for any reason. I know that some grills don't have a super low setting, and that is what you need to do this recipe. After the hour, I TURN OFF THE GRILL, then I open it. Baby backs are always done, the spare ribs take a little longer, so if they are not done, I remove the old foil, lay in new foil, THEN TURN THE GRILL BACK ON and close. When they are done, I slather them with sauce and just let them sit for a little while, on the unlit grill, the heat usually is enough to finish them off. I swear by this recipe, thank you so much!!

Taste of Home's Creamy Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2003
I have made this salad many, many times over the past few years (I got it when it came out in the magazine). It is always a hit, It is less sweet and more savory. I serve it as a side dish, or on top of pulled pork sandwiches (a pork roast cooked in the crock pot all day with a bottle of bbq sauce) SUPER EASY AND EXCELLENT!!

Famous Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2003
I made this as part of a full course Valentine's day dinner for my hubby. I substituted a little sesame oil for the peanut, and used less overall than called for. It was good, but was missing an element of something, not sure what, maybe salt. Will make again tho.

Old Fashioned Sicilian Succo

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2003
I have to give this recipe 5 stars because it is very, very delicious. I have been having a hard time getting my kids to eat tomato sauce because they hate onions and chunks of cooked tomato.I scaled it to 6 and followed the directions without adding or omitting anything. The secret is in the simmering!!! Italians are very patient that way. It was so nice to make a sauce that everyone loved from a recipe that had no bizarre ingredients (i.e. sugar, baking soda, I have seen it all) and NO dry Herbs- I used Hunt's tomato sauce. It was perfect! no additional salt, pepper, nothing! Thanks so much to Joiamia and her Nana. This sauce is going to be my new secret.

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2003
This was good, I actually served it as a side dish with chicken breast. My kids love rice, and we usually have some form of spinach once a week. It tasted a little like the rice stuffed grape leaves they make at Armenian and Greek restaurants.

Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
I am traumatized from a childhood of eating Bisquick dumplings. This recipe has healed me! I made a simple chicken soup by boiling the chicken and adding carrots, celery and a few potatoes. The dumplings are so tender, flavorful and comforting, they thickened the soup to a perfect consistancy. My kids love it too! It's a great change from noodles or rice.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2002
I have made these a few times and they are a new favorite in my house. I have had tacos a million ways from Sunday, and these are definitely unique. The acidy mixture of vingar and lime almost give the chicken an adobo flavor (adobo actually means marinade, so that makes sense!) anyway, I best like these served with traditional corn tortillas. If you want them spicy, try some chopped jalapenos in the chicken, and/or Tapatio sauce on top.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2002
This was a good recipe, authentic Italian, except for the canned part. I prepared it just as instructed, but I eyeballed the garlic, starting with 2 big cloves, I didn't end up using the whole head, tho. It was a great, simple accompaniment to the Herbed Pork and Apples and Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes. Fresh green beans would work well if making for company, otherwise the canned were just fine!

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2002
This was a great, simple recipe, kindof a no brainer, but I wish I would've thought of it. I served this with Herbed Pork and Apples and it really complimented the meal.

Herbed Pork and Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2002
Everyone in my family enjoyed this. My 11 yr old had 3 servings. I only rubbed the roast w/garlic, salt, pepper and thyme as that was all I had on hand. The best part was the gravy, which I made by adding an envelope of brown gravy mix as suggested by another reviewer. I served this with Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes and Garlic Green Beans all from this site. Will make for company!!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2002
This is one is a regular now at my house. I use beef broth instead of onion soup because my picky daughter doesn't do onions. I have tried for years to find a true salisbury steak recipe with "that gravy", this is the one!

Arroz con Pollo II

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2002
This is a great authentic Cuban recipe. I did add a little water to it and cook it covered so the flavors were not as strong as Cuban arroz con pollo usually is. I also left out the peas and pimenton for the kids who found this to be a huge hit! I served it with fresh bread, a green salad and red wine. Next time I will make the maduros to go with it.

Au Gratin Potatoes II

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2001
This was a good recipe, I made it for Easter dinner w/ leg of lamb. It made much more that 4 servings,though. I would say more like 6-8 as an accompaniment. But I'm not complaining. We stuffed leftovers into corn tortillas, deep fried them, topped w/shredded lettuce, hot sauce etc. (no need for cheese or sour cream, obviously) for some awesome (and naughty) potato tacos!

Smoked Salmon Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2001
My family loved this recipe, including my 3 children (13,9,3). I used a package of smoked salmon bits that cost less than $4.00. I used half and half (because that is what I had in the fridge) and it came out just fine, just remember to reduce it down a little. The basic recipe was plenty for all 5 of us. This is fancy enough to serve to company.
