Vegetarian Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I found this dish to be a whole lot of work for a mediocre result. My whole family thought it just tasted like odd bread with bbq sauce. Ordinarily I wouldn't post a negative response, but I made this based upon all the stellar reviews, so I just think it's only fair readers see another opinion. It was edible but by no means meatlike.

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I took the advice of others and toasted the tofu first. What a wonderful, satisfying meal! I doubled the 4 servings recipe for the 5 of us thinking of having leftovers for my daughter and I to have for lunch tomorrow--there isn't any left! Fabulous vegetarian fare.

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Heavenly! The aroma while it cooked made my children hover around the kitchen, I kept telling them, "it's just a chicken!" LOL My husband has been requesting it ever since. I'm back here today to get the recipe so I can use it for our Thanksgiving turkey.

Naan

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
I've misplaced my naan recipe so tried this one. My other one was so much better. This was too heavy and tasteless despite my doubling the garlic.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
My family liked this recipe but we didn't 'love' it. I was hoping for restaurant quality as our local Indian restaurant just changed owners and is no longer very good :( I will make this again but it won't become a staple.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
Very easy, smelled fabulous while cooking. The secret to Southern flavor tho is the bbq sauce and I have not found a really good sauce yet. But my family, who did not benefit from a childhood in the South, absolutely devoured it.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
My family LOVED this. My husband called it "restaurant quality." From a slow cooker!! I read all the comments and proceeded like this: I used London broil cuz that's what i always use for stroganoff. I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I used red wine in place of the white wine and water; beef needs red wine, not white. I opted for the suggestion to replace the sour cream with 4 oz. of cream cheese and 8 oz. of sour cream (added 30 minutes before serving). I whisked a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch with some of the sauce and whisked that mixture back into the pot right before the addition of the sour cream/cream cheese. The sauce ended with a perfect consistency and exceptional flavor. I served it with a spinach salad. This is a real keeper!

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This was easy and looked great. The family loved it. I personally didn't care for the beer taste and I prefer a yeastier flavor. I had to add quite a bit of flour to make it work--I doubled the recipe so maybe that is why. I highly recommend it for ease and if you like the beer flavor.

Hearty Garlic Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
A great soup! I added a half can of whole kernel corn; sauteed the sausage/onions in a tblsp. of olive oil and did not drain them; and doubled the garlic. It smelled fabulous while cooking and my family loved it. I can't wait to serve it in a pumpkin for an autumn gathering!
