Bratwurst Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
Fresh green beans were a nice addition to this stew - and I used navy beans instead of great northern. Probably did add more seasoning (not different, just more). I added additional water as I thought the veggies needed more liquid to cook in; then I was afraid the stew would be to liquid-y, but after simmering for at least 20 minutes if not more it was a just-right consistency. It was really good served with cornbread.

Garlic Baked Potato

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
I loved baking the potato this way. But I did pierce the potato several times and then brush on the oil with the garlic powder and salt mixed in, I think the flavor went inside that way instead of just staying on the skin. I also baked them on foil and on a baking sheet to eliminate the drips and make it easier to handle. The extra potatoes I baked made great cubed and fried leftovers!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Even though I doubled the sauce ingredients, I still wanted more sauce to eat over rice. So I added about 1/4 cup chicken broth and 1 tsp cornstarch. That decreased the "stickiness" but made it more "rice-friendly" and did not reduce the delicious flavor. To add a hint more flavor, I included a small amount of Oriental Five Spice.

Eggless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
I have used a similar recipe and it's one of my favorites because it's a moist cake that is easy and quick to put together. Some of the other reviewers said the cake was lacking something in flavor. Try adding about 2 tsps of cider vinegar to the water, oil, and vanilla mixture.

Cocoa Quickies

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Can't beat these for a quick and easy treat to satisfy a chocolate sweet tooth! I guess I was in a hurry and ate some too soon as the oatmeal was dry & chewy and they didn't hold together well. Keeping them in the refrigerator overnight seemed to be the solution to that problem... Instead of coconut I used raisins. mmmm-chocolate covered raisins

Tuna Fish Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
Easy & delicious! I followed the advice to use less mayo (only about a tblsp) and I did not use celery, substituted lime juice for lemon and added fresh cilantro in addition to parsley. Served it on grilled ciabatta bread but I could have eaten it all by itself!

Strawberries in Spiced Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
I've made this several times now - the first time I used it as pancake syrup. I thawed frozen whole strawberries and mashed them with the sugar/water/spice syrup. I made it the same way the second time, except used it as a dessert sauce over purchased pound cake with a spoonful of vanilla yogurt on top.

Sweet Potato Pie VII

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
A co-worker gave me a HUGE sweet potato from her garden that I used to make this delicious pie. I added a tiny bit of nutmeg but I honestly don't think the pie needs any spice to be one of the best I've tasted. I did use 1/2 cup brown sugar as I love anything that has brown sugar in it!

Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
This really is a delicious soup - I enjoyed it with a chicken salad sandwich. I opted to add some finely chopped yellow squash instead of leeks and used a combination of garlic, curry, and white wine for the seasoning. Also added about a tsp of flour to the sauteed veggies just to thicken it up a bit as I did not want to puree and lose the texture.

Authentic Thousand Island Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I skipped the black olives but this was still REALLY REALLY good. I only used about half of the mayo but a bit more egg. (Scaled this to 5 servings and ended up with a recipe that used 7/8 egg. I finely chopped 1 jumbo hard boiled egg.)

Tangy Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I checked out the other pear and blue cheese salad recipes on this site, but decided on this one BECAUSE of the ketchup in the dressing. French/Russian salad dressing is just about my favorite, and other reviewers indicated that this had a bit of that taste. I made the dressing with equal proportions of the vinegar (cider vinegar), sugar, and oil and just added it as needed because it was still too much even though I cut the oil amount in half. I also used gorgonzola cheese. Glad I tried this one!

Seasoned Potato Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
These were great! Maybe not as crispy as I'd hoped, but that was probably because I didn't bake them at as high a temp as the recipe called for because of other food I was preparing in the oven. I used a non-salt garden blend, some paprika for color, and fresh ground pepper. Delicious served with Fry Sauce (recipe on allrecipes.com).

Fry Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I used equal parts of ketchup/mayo and I agree with the reviewer who wrote that this is the "best stuff for fries."

Zucchini and Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
I added sweet Vidalia onion slices to the zucchini saute and seasoned with oregano. Delicious! The ratio I used was one medium zucchini, 1/2 medium onion, and 2 eggs.

Fresh Dill Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Lots of fresh dill really added to the yum factor of this salad :-d Since I didn't have shrimp, I used salad-style imitation lobster.

Monte Cristo Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I made this for lunch today using smoked turkey and baby swiss cheese - no ham. Used dijon mustard for a little extra kick...dipping in strawberry preserves and sprinkling with a small amount of confectioner's sugar made for lots of savory and sweet tastes! Really good.

Cinnamon Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This is a childhood treat for me also and I still like it today! But it seems that I remember my mom making it by sprinkling sugar on the buttered bread and then topping it with a few shakes of cinnamon. Then she broiled it until bubbly.

Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
What made this recipe 5 star for me was that it did NOT taste just like chicken baked in BBQ sauce from a bottle. You could really tell that the sauce was made from scratch. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts which were marinated in the sauce about 15 hours before baking. Moist and delicious.

Easy Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I will never have to buy pizza sauce in a jar again! For the water/tomato paste proportion, I used equal amounts (6 oz). Also added about 1/2 tsp white sugar.

Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
The spice combo makes for a great turkey burger...I used chipotle powder instead of the whole pepper and served with honey BBQ sauce. Grilled the burger (and bun) on my indoor grill pan for a great lunch with baked seasoned fries on the side.
