Bacon Spaghetti

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
It's a decent base recipe but by itself it is, in fact, very dry. The olive oil soaks in quickly. I ended up making a sauce with some butter, a little whole milk, and added about 1/2 cup shredded, sauted raddichio, and 1/2 cup thawed frozen peas. The bacon definately needs to be the last thing you add in, if you want it crunchy.

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
This wasn't a bad recipe....it just ended up tasting like beef stew (without the seasoning) to me. The second time I tried it I used my home canned tomatoes with celery, garlic and onion. A bit better and definately is good served over white rice. A recipe I'll have to play with some more....

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
As written,the dip is good but very, very rich. I toned down the Mayo and I liked it much better. IF you're not a big mayo fan, you'll want to add 1/2 cup and then taste the mixture. Add more if you like. I love the combination of the cream cheese and jalapenoes! It's even better the next day. I had some left over and I used it as a topping for hamburgers. Really good.

Southwestern Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
This was an awesome salad. I love fresh black bean salsa and this has a similar taste. I agree with reviewers that suggested increasing the lime juice. I had to double the dressing amount as I used 1 lb of penne pasta. I only used red bell pepper. When it came to the dressing...I mixed the oil, lime juice and spices in a bowl and whisked them all together. This way, I added the chili powder 1 tbsp at a time and tasted until it was to my liking....which is spicey! Wonderful salad..I am sharing this!

Anne's Homemade Chorizo

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
This is a good chorizo recipe but it lacked the traditional spice of Cumin. I added 1 tsp of ground cumin (comino) and I added a few teaspoons of paprika.I will probably add a little more chili,too, next time. Classic chorizo is made with chile pasilla (dried chili pods that are softened in water and processed until smooth.) I will ommit the wine next time, too. I found the proportion of meat to spice good, though. It's an excellent recipe to start with. Thank you.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
As written, I gave the recipe 4 stars because I found it to be salty with all that Italian dressing mix. If I like a recipe, I'll try it at least twice so I braised the chicken in olive oil first, and then put them in the slower cooker with 2 tbsps homemade Italian Dressing Mix (recipe available on allrecipes.com.) When it came time to add the cream of chicken soup and the cream cheese I, also, added some sliced onions and canned mushrooms. This is wonderful over rice or noodles. I did fix this a 3rd time and, after removing the tender chicken, I added bow tie pasta to the cream of chicken mixture and cooked an addition 30-45 mins. After the pasta cooked, I shredded the cooked chicken and mixed it all together. I'm thinking 1 cup of peas would be good in this, too. All in all, a good recipe. Thanks!!

Cucumber Slices With Dill

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
This is a great way to use those garden cukes. I like adding 1/2 cup red bell pepper to the mixture but it's great as is. I love the taste of fresh dill but the dried dill really works best with this recipe as it's not so overwhelming. Very refreshing. IF you're going to reduce the sugar....reduce the vinegar, too. The cukes make plenty of their own liquid.

Eggplant Rollatini

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
This is a good, handy recipe. I'm trying to eat low carb and eggplant is a great substitute for lasagna noodles. The only thing is you do need to add some salt to the eggplant slices to cut the bitterness. I usually salt my eggplant and let them sit for a few minutes. This draws out the extra liquid and helps with the flavor. I'm a big eggplant fan and I love finding new ways to use this. Thank you!

Spaghetti Pie III

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
My whole family liked this. The cream cheese mixture is wonderful. The only change I made was using Italian Sausage in place of ground beef (I was out of grnd beef.) I think next time I might try adding some chopped black olives, too. The leftovers went quickly, too. This would be awesome fora potluck as it's wonderful hot out of the oven or lukewarm or cold!

Spinach-Cheese Swirls

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
This was good. The filling just needed a bit of adjustment...perhaps because I'm used to Spanakopita. I added some dried dill weed and used feta cheese instead. I love using puff pastry and it's great with the spinach! They're good cold, too.

Kielbasa Cabbage Skillet

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I've tried many Kielbasa and Cabbage recipes and was never fully satisfied with the taste. This recipe is great. I think the difference, for me, was cooking it with the chicken broth. I added some crumbled bacon before serving. Just great! Thanks!

Creamy Vegetable Sandwich Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This is a great recipe. I love it on pita wedges. It's a great filling for wraps. Just cut the filled wraps into spirals. Very yummy.

Spinach Triangles

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
These were good. The filling just needed some tweaking. I made a filling with spinach, dried dill weed, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and feta, parmesean and mozzerella cheeses...a kicked up Spanakopita filling. Simple and fast recipe. Gotta love frozen puff pastry!

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
These are completely addictive. I love to keep them around (not that they last long...I eat them too quickly!!) for snacking and baking. These are wonderful chopped up and mixed into a nice butter cookie dough. This Christmas I made a large batch ( as my uncle, a pecan farmer in Texas, sent me 10 lbs of pecans!) and gave out baggies of them as gifts. Every single gift recipient wanted the recipe.

Different Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This wasn't an awful recipe but it does need some tweaking, I think. I agree that you need to bake the chicken for more than 30 minutes. I tried this recipe twice. The first time I wasn't too thrilled with the taste and texture. The second time I pan seared my chicken breasts first and that helped with the cook time. Also, baked as is, the breasts almost blanche. I think the pan searing helps this. I used low sodium stuffing mix (the recipe really doesn't need the 1 tsp of salt with the salt in the ham, cream of chicken soup and the stuffing mix the recipe calls for.) I, also, tried using a Roasted Garlic Cream of Mushroom soup and it was really good. The concept of this recipe is great. It just needs a little adjustment on the execution.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Great recipe! I keep the mix around for anytime I need to whip up a nice Italian Dressing...actually, I have some in my cupboard right now. I did reduce the salt and I added 2 tablespoons of dried, minced chives. As other reviewers noted, I, also, used garlic powder in place of garlic salt and celery seed in place of celery salt. Also, it's easy to adapt the recipe for use with balsamic vinegar and red wine vinegar. I found using olive oil changed the taste for the worse. Canola oil did give it a better taste (I use Smart Balance which has both olive and canola.) As a dressing, it's great for pasta salad and muffalettas.

Parmesan Cheese Twists

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
This recipe saved me! I needed something quick and yummy for a Christmas party. I had puff pastry on hand and all the other ingredients. I added 1/2 tsp garlic powder to the cheese mixture simply because I love garlic. They were a hit with my family...especially all the little ones. Wonderful!

Merry Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
This is a wonderful, handy recipe. I made a lemon pie and, since no one in my family likes the meringue on the pie, I had leftover egg whites. I remembered printing this recipe for future use and gave it a try. They were a huge hit with my kids! I used Sugar Free Jello and it worked wonderfully.

Sweet and Sour Pork Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
These patties were awesome. I added 1/2 of a red bell pepper, chopped, and a tablespoon of teriyaki sauce. I served these with the Danish Christmas Red Cabbage recipe and some mashed potatoes. Just wonderful and quick!
