Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
In addition to the ingredients for this recipe - You need to add 1 - 1 1/2 cups of water, bring to a boil and then let simmer for 40 minutes - add a dash of Worcestershire and this is the perfect dish! It will thicken once removed from the heat in about 5 minutes. It was not too "ketchupy" or "sugary" once you add the water. It had a nice smooth taste. We always use ground turkey and the kids don't even know it!! (to get away from the "pink slime" in most ground beef)

Cuban Picadillo

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Well, I would not add cilantro - maybe they are trying to make a different version of Picadillo - but cilantro is not really a Cuban herb. My best friend is Cuban and her Mom gave me a recipe straight from Cuba and they use Cumin and Oregano. She also told me to add Potatoes.

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
I have been cooking for 35+ years and this was fabulous! My husband and kids (who are very picky) cleared their plates and said I could make this "Anytime"! I made mashed potatoes to go with this dinner - yum! I used 1/2 of the dry onion/mushroom soup mix so it would not be too salty. But it is MUCH BETTER with the CREAM OF CHICKEN then the Cream of Mushroom!!! It may sound strange, but once you add the Dry Au Jus Mix to the Cream of Chicken, it turns it to a beef flavor, not chicken. Instead of water I also added Chicken Broth. Beef broth would make it too "beefy". This gave it a very nice, smooth flavor. I also added a Jar of Mushrooms (drained). This is the 3rd time I've made it in a month!! Very unusual for my household. I also like it because it is so easy. Don't over mix your beef mixture, that will make it tough. If you handle with care, it will not fall apart. I love it when I find recipes that are wonderful and cooked in slow cooker/crock pot. =)

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
I have been cooking for 35+ yrs and I must say, this is the BEST Lasagna recipe I have EVER made. My husband, who loves everything I make, but is of little words.....made the exception tonight by telling me this is the best lasagna I've ever made =) The ONLY thing I did different was the Salt. I added 1 tsp instead of 1 tablespoon of salt and I love garlic, so I added 3 large garlic cloves instead of 2. Other than that, I stayed true to the recipe. I have tried dozens of lasagna recipe's, some have been better than others - but this one is #1, hands down. It did take me from 3pm to 7pm by the time it was finished, but definitely worth the extra time. Reading other reviews, I can't imagine using a jar sauce - what's the point - then you are not making the recipe! The whole point of a "great" lasagna is the SAUCE!! PS I also cooked the onions, garlic and meat in a little Olive Oil - because I like the flavor Olive Oil adds.
