Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Wonderful recipe and not too spicy with my personal modifications! Took the advice of previous reviewers and: cut cayenne in half, added 1Tbsp garlic powder, used olive oil instead of butter. I drizzled oil and seasoned both sides of the salmon. Placed in my broiler @525 degrees for 13 minutes and it was done! I did not flip it over. No muss, no fuss! The longest part of this recipe is mixing the spices which I plan to make a large batch of for future use. Definite addition to the dinner rotation!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Well, this was just ok for my family. I followed the recipe exactly, except I tripled the sauce and added onion pwd and S&P. The sauce tasted like the ketchup mixture I put on top of my meatloaf (ketchup, b.sugar, worchestire...yep!) I had high hopes due to the high ratings and large # of reviews, but I won't make these again.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Great recipe! My review will sound redundant, but here I go: 2-14oz cans of crushed tomato (there is NO way you can do this recipe with 1 can!), 1lb ground turkey, no fresh onion/garlic so I used onion/garlic powder, only had 2 cans blk beans so I used 1 can kidney beans ILO of the 3rd can, used balsamic vinegar b/c I didn't have red wine vinegar, used 1 can corn. I added Montreal seasoning/onion and garlic powders, few dashes of cumin and chili pwd to meat mixture. Added to a large pot and dumped all the cans in. Added the seasoning (easy on the chili pwd b/c of my 3-yr old, easy on the oregano b/c I think it is a potent spice). Simmered for about 40 minutes. Still needed some umph, so added more salt, fresh ground blk pepper, and 3 dashes of ground red pepper. Simmered a little longer and then let set for 20 minutes. My daughter and husband devoured it! Served with Jiffy mix cornbread with 1/2 can creamed corn, 1 tsp of baking powder, and honey squeezed on top. Will definitely move this into my winter dinner rotation!

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
3 hours before my bbq I was desperate for a marinade for chicken breast and I stumbled upon this recipe. Whipped it up and prayed it was "as advertised". This chicken ended up being the "best thing on the menu"! I did not try it until the 3rd person commented on how good it was. I used what I had on hand: apple cider vinegar instead of red wine vinegar, dried parsley flakes instead of fresh, canola instead of vegetable oil, and a tsp of regular mustard instead of dry. Also, I didn't add (and didn't need) salt. It was absolutely delish fresh off the grill! Thanks for the recipe!

Emma's Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
FINALLY! A good belgian waffle from an inexpensive (i.e. cheap) waffle iron. I made several modifications per previous reviewers recommendations (added 1/4 c cornstarch, extra 1/4 c milk, 2&3/4 tsp baking powder, and decreased salt), thus the 4 stars. The true trick (thanks to a previous reviewer) is NOT to spray with Pam if you have non-stick. I really think this helped to make it crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Now, I think my cheap iron has uneven heating, so some parts were "doughy" while most parts were perfect. I will definitely keep this recipe on hand, as well as my cheap waffle iron.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
So darn tasty! I double the sauce as others have suggested and used with ground turkey. My husband (who says ground turkey "tastes weird") raved about these! Even my picky toddler was licking her fingers. I have made this several times and it's always a welcome dinner. Thanks for this recipe.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Great recipe! I used 2 cans chicken broth, 2 cans corn, doubled the cumin, added cilantro, and added one extra can of blk beans. I didn't have stewed tomato so I used crushed tomato with the 1 can of blk beans. My 2yr old and husband loved it! It made a huge pot, so we will have plenty of leftovers.

Chocolate Chex® Caramel Crunch

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
Sooo addicting! I followed the recipe to a T (except we couldn't find white chips, so we deleted it completely). So, so, so, so good. You do NOT need the chocolate. I repeat you don't need the chips! I think it tastes fantastic without it and would make it messy if you had chocolate drizzle (melting on fingers, etc.) I agree with a pp who said nuts would be good with this. As I write this, I am snacking on this mix with some almonds. Perfect combo of sweet and salty. Recipe gets brownie points b/c it is all made in the microwave. WooHoo!!!

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Pretty good. Made this as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. I usually make deviled eggs with just the yolk and miracle whip, but wanted to "spice it up" a little. Only variation I made was Miracle whip instead of mayo and added a little fresh ground pepper. Yum!

Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Great chili! Only revisions I made were a personal preference--no disrespect to the recipe! Only added 1/2 tablspoon of chili pwd (hubby and 20 month old don't "do" spicy) and I added some shredded carrots (for color and nutrition), lastly I thickened with cornstarch and water at the very end. Yummy served over rice. Great leftovers too!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
Good overall flavor. I shredded mine to make it a 'pulled chix sandwich' Next time I will leave the chicken breast whole and serve that way. Good and tender chicken.

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
Awesome recipe! I made this for an election night party and it was a HUGE hit! I took others suggestions and used 1/2c each of hellman's lite mayo and miracle whip lite, 1c lite sour cream, 1/2pkt of Hidden Valley ranch dressing powder, diced 3 roma tomatoes and baked 3/4lb of bacon @ 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Added the bacon and let the mixture sit in the fridge. Just before serving I added the tomatoes. I wanted to lick the bowl clean when everyone left. Again, AWESOME!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Good basic soup, my husband loved it, my 20 month old was neutral. I omitted the bouillon and used 2 14-oz. cans of low sodium chix broth instead. Next time I think I will use just 1 can. Too watery. Added about 1 cup of instant potato flakes to thicken after adding the roux. I added lots of salt b/c the ham and broth didn't add enough (and I am not a salt person). Also added a generous helping of colby/monterey cheese to my serving. Next time I think I will omit the ham and just add bacon and drippings. Maybe try it as a loaded potato-like soup!

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Very creamy and delish! Used 1 cup warm milk, 1/2 stick butter and 2 tbsp I can't believe its not butter. LOTS of salt (very much needed and I am not a salt person). Husband even commented on the creaminess. A definite winner!

Apple Betty

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Can I give it 10 stars? Please!?! Wonderful!!! 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar, about 7 small granny smith apples, added 1 tsp vanilla to orange juice. Turned out wonderful. The crumb topping was nice and crisp and the apples were in a nice thick goo. Will make again and again!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Used 1lb ground turkey and 1lb ground pork. Used 1/8cup brown sugar, few splashes of worchestire, and ketchup. Used 1 packet of beefy onion soup mix. It was a winner with my daughter and I. My husband was on the fence (he prefers beef) but he ate all that was on his plate. 2 out of 3 isn't bad! I loved it and will make again!

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Slices

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Sorry, not impressed! The slices were soggy-like, not what I expected. Overall flavor was good, but wrong texture. Won't make again.

Tender Tomato Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
I put all the ingredients in the crock pot before work. When I came home, the house smelled wonderful! I followed the recipe as written (except I used diced tomatoes pre-seasoned with basil, garlic and oregano). A definite keeper! Tastes great over rice!
