French Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Perfect. I will never buy this bottled again! My only change was to use chili powder because I was out of paprika. And the only vinegar I had on hand was Balsamic... This is a real dinner saving dressing!!!!

Krystal's Perfect Marinade for BBQ or Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
The aroma was tantalizing! I only marinated for an hour and a half due to time crunch for dinner. Other than that, I didn't change a single thing. I served it with brown rice that I'd minced small bits of pineapple, mango and mint into. I added some aged hard cider to the leftover marinade and made a demi-glaze to pour over the rice and my guests really loved it. I'm saving this marinade recipe. Other reviewers have used it on other meats and I'm going to do that as well. Thank you so much for such a simple and well balanced, elegant marinade!

Kielbasa with Brussels Sprouts in Mustard Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This recipe is excellent! The sauce makes the dish. I followed the sauce recipe exactly but had to tinker with a few other things because of diets in the household. We used fresh Polish kielbasa from the Polish market near our home. I didn't have shallots, but steamed an onion with fresh chopped garlic then ran the mix through my food processor. Then I halved and roasted the brussels sprouts in olive oil. I had to leave out the beans because of my diet, but added a chopped artichoke. I made double sauce and served everything over organic spinach fettucini for my husband and dry scrambled eggs for me since I'm on the Atkins diet. I urge everyone who even remotely likes brussels sprouts to try this recipe. It's going to be a keeper in our household. I'm so thrilled with the way the sauce turned out! I wish I could give more stars.

Stir Fry Tomato and Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
Simplicity is a valuable asset with some dishes and this one isn't any different. I made the dish exactly as the recipe indicated and loved it! I prefer a little more salt with the tomatoes and salted them before adding them to the eggs. It was very surprising to me that a previous reviewer with an 'expert' rating was disappointed that this dish tasted like scrambled eggs with tomatoes since the list of ingredients leaves nothing to the imagination. I loved the taste of the fresh tomatoes with the eggs. I wouldn't change a thing in this recipe. Yum!

White Bean Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
This recipe was fantastic. But I was out of cocoa and substituted instant coffee to taste. I couldn't think of anything else that came close to cocoa flavor that I had on hand. Needless to say, the chili received rave reviews from my dinner guests. Thank you so much for posting it. I plan on making it with cocoa next time to compare. I didn't change anything else.

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
Fantastic. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and added a small can of tomatoes (plain crushed were all I had) and a touch of cinnamon. It was coming out too thick so I added more chicken stock. The original recipe seasonings were a wonderful combination. I added only enough salt to taste and we served it over brown rice topped with chopped peanuts. We will be offering this to my family's table at Christmastime this year.

Grilled Beer Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I think that this recipe is much better than the can in the chicken recipes I've tried simply because I think that the spices with the beer permeates the meat much better. Besides, I like to fuss over my grill... The only change I made was to add a bit of soy sauce to the mix because I'm on a soy sauce kick. I only added a couple of shakes to it, so I don't think I hurt the recipe. My son sprinkled dried hot pepper flakes on his chicken portion during the final 15 minutes or so. There wasn't a piece left after dinner! Thank you.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
An amazingly simple recipe with great results. I didn't have fresh tomatoes, so I used four tablespoons of chopped canned tomatoes. When summer comes, I will be using fresh ones from my garden! I also didn't use cilantro. I don't like cilantro, but in this recipe, I would probably eat it since the base recipe is so well balanced. I will use this as my standard guacamole from now on. Thank you!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
I didn't change a single thing on this recipe. My sons who are grown BOTH ate large helpings of it and asked me if they could save the leftovers. This was a tremendous compliment to the recipe! I served it over whole wheat noodles and found it to be a very satisfactory dish. We will keep this in our stack of favorite recipes! Thank you!

Mushroom Cube Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Excellent. One reviewer suggested to leave out the dijon mustard, but I have to vehemently disagree with that. The combination of dijon mustard with Worchestershire sauce is GREAT. I added a pinch of tarragon and deglazed the mushrooms with a touch of dry sherry. I LOVE this recipe and will share it with my family next time we're all home at the same time!

Classic Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I should have read the review by 'Eostar' before preparing this recipe. The salt and pepper should definitely be added after cooking. This is a great starting recipe for Hollandaise. I ended up whipping up a few more yolks and adding them to the mixture to cool down the salt. A few more drops of lemon juice and 1/2 tsp water and I had Hollandaise... still a little salty, but tasty enough to pull off on my fiance. We had it over Eggs Sardou and enjoyed it very much. Next time I will use unsalted butter and hold off on the salt and pepper. Perhaps I'll use white pepper... Thank you!

Cube Steak Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
The only changes I made to this recipe were to use rosemary flavored cocktail/canape crackers instead of saltines and I used canned & diced tomatoes ss I was out of tomato sauce. I pounded the cube steak and followed the rest of the recipe accordingly. The result was tender cube steak and a great sauce that I will make again. It was light and fresh tasting = perfectly complimentary to the cube steak. I served it over spaghetti with a side of steamed spinach with garlic and almonds. We preferred to serve this with an amber lager beer. Wonderful tastes and textures. I will definitely make this again. I have no difficulty giving this recipe 5 stars.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Very good. I accidentally gave the incorrect rating for this recipe in place of the one for a different brussels sprouts dish. This is a WONDERFUL recipe and one that I followed exactly. It met with raves and a demand to go back to the kitchen and make some more! It is a good meal on its own as well as being an unusual way to present a side dish. I recommend it to anyone who likes sprouts and bleu cheese!

Baked Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I liked the idea of charring the brussels sprouts, so this recipe appealed to me. I love brussels sprouts and looked forward to preparing this dish. Unfortunately, I found the sprouts to be too salty and not as tasty as other reviewers had concluded. Since I rely on the reviews for my judgement on whether or not to prepare a recipe, I will try this recipe again. Perhaps I didn't get fresh enough sprouts... it's still an intriguing recipe and I'm sure that I just haven't gotten something correct in the preparation.

Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This is a poor people's dish. It was supposedly brought to America by slaves and adopted by white owners of plantations. It is simple and meant to be that way. I followed this recipe with the exception of adding some some simple sliced breakfast sausage along with the ham because while looking up the history of the recipe, I found references of adding that and I received RAVES from friends and family. When I served the leftovers, I poured a jar of home canned tomatoes over the top of the heated up John. Again, it was a great hit. This is a good and simple recipe. I wouldn't change it. Thank you!

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
I had two small cans of pumpkin and a lot of dark meat left over from Thanksgiving. I followed the recipe, except that I roasted my canned pumpkin puree with the oil and a little dried onion as I was out of fresh. Since I'd used two cans of pumpkin, the soup turned out a little too thick and I added 2% milk - about 2 cups - to reach a veloute consistency. Then I added about two cups of minced leftover turkey and about 1 tsp garlic salt and a touch of white pepper. The flavor of the soup held up admirably in spite of what must have been extra pumpkin on my part and I fell in love with this recipe. It's a keeper and worthy to pass on to friends and relatives. Kudos.

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
My father was a cook for the Army during the Korean war. He raised me and my brothers on this recipe, except that he used Spam in place of the ham. If we ever show up at his house and it's on the stove, we all fight for it! Thank you for sharing this recipe. It's great the way it is. I also have made it with chicken broth, but it's also great when made with spring water.

Tomato and Basil Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
This was a GREAT recipe! I had to double it for a party which was no problem. I did as others had suggested by using heavy cream and nutmeg. I also added minced sundried tomatoes, steamed asparagus, spinach, fresh basil and mushrooms. I also chopped the onions and tomatoes as suggested. I put sliced heirloom tomatoes on top for decoration. I also sprayed my cake pan with olive oil and baked it without any crust. I received many compliments and no quiche was left over after the party! I will definitely be making this again for dinner very soon.

The Best Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
Too bad that one of the three star ratings pulled this recipe down 1/2 star because it definitely didn't deserve it! I made it with smoked gouda because it was all I had on hand and after the first sandwich, I sliced hard-boiled egg on the second. Either way, the sandwich was great. Thank you for sending it in. I will definitely continue with this recipe! Everyone at work loved it!

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
Fantastic! I added a little more salt, but the whole recipe was good to begin with. My little grandson could not leave them alone. This is now a family favourite and we don't plan on eating them the 'old' way anymore.
