Special Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
I am giving this recipe five stars because it is a VERY GOOD recipe that MOST ANYONE would at "least" LIKE. My own recipe seems to still be a favorite in my house so perhaps I'll post that one some day. THIS IS A VERY GOOD RECIPE. Once making it, there are changes anyone could make to suit their individual taste. However, that said, I think this is a "CAN'T GO WRONG TO PLEASE A CROWD" basic start recipe! Thanks!!!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
YUM!!! I had been looking for a recipe like the Deli Broccoli salad I enjoy. THIS IS IT, YAY! My husband said he could have used lighter on the red onions, but I LOVED IT JUST THE WAY IT WAS. I can see how you can change this to your own taste. THIS IS A GREAT RECIPE to start with. LIKE IT as is and LIKE it if you change per your favorite taste! GREAT RECIPE, DO TRY!

Oven-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
We really liked this! I only gave it a 4 because I like others better, like the "roasted Cajun potatoes" on this site, but overall this was SIMPLE, EASY and MUCH BETTER than regular potatoes. This is a great BREAKFAST recipe for company, served with eggs or whatever! I thought the BLEND of spices and cheese was perfect. My husband said HE WOULD HAVE USED A LITTLE LESS CHEESE. This recipe could EASILY be altered to add or take away whatever spices/cheese you prefer. Thats why I like THIS RECIPE! Its a good recipe TO TRY FOR EVERYONES TASTE!

Macaroon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly, except the topping. I am VERY PICKY about cheesecake since my mother makes them for restaurants and is exceptional! I was HOPING to find a recipe to surprise my mother with my skills, something unique. I LOVE the crust idea, the coconut and pecans ARE AWESOME! I WILL USE THIS CRUST AGAIN. The cheesecake itself was a bit more custard like than I care for. I like it more CREAMY than custard like. 3 eggs sounded like a bit much to me, but I always try the recipe as is before rating it and altering it. My HUSBAND SAID IT WAS GOOD, but JUST good. This is lacking the WOW FACTOR I am looking for. Perhaps not putting the topping on changed something? I didn't care for the looks of the topping and another user also said her topping came out looking like onion dip, those were my thoughts just by looking at the main recipe photo. Perhaps someone else will have more luck with this recipe than I did. Overall, GREAT CRUST, "OK" CHEESECAKE TASTE.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
I am giving this a HIGH FIVE because even though I started with the original recipe, and I ended up tweaking it a bit to suit OUR taste, it is an EXCELLENT "as is" recipe. I followed instructions to a tee until the celery. I haven't heard of too many stir fry recipes calling for celery that I liked in the past, so I REPLACED the celery for the same amount of green cabbage. The amount of water it called for, at that point I felt would have been too wet for us (perhaps using the cabbage instead of celery???) I used only 1/4 cup of water and bullion. I also added after tasting it, another full table spoon of soy sauce and a tsp of crushed garlic. this made my husband say, "WOWIE WOW WOW WOW!" (He is usually a ONE WOW guy and THAT is even a good thing!) Thank you for a great recipe that is good AS IS and can be tweaked and probably STILL just as GOOD. THANKS!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
I can see how so many people would like this, WE THOUGHT it was lacking something. I guess we could go through and read every couple thousand of reviews and see how people may have altered this recipe, but I'd rather just find a different one. My husband thought the SOUR CREAM didn't go well in this dish. I liked it ok, I just thought it was missing something that gave it the "WOW-FACTOR". Thank you for a good recipe though; AGAIN, I can understand why it is a good recipe for so many others.

Pollo Bella

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
I would rate this 5 STARS but my husband did not like it so I'm giving it 4 stars. I LOVED THE FLAVOR and I am a fan of creamy/saucy dishes, and I am a huge Gorgonzola fan! I DID LOVE THIS! I think this is a love it or hate it recipe. I SUGGEST READING the ingredients and if you LOVE GORGONZOLA. mushrooms, cream sauces, etc... you'll love it, if not, this isn't for you. Thank you for the great recipe!

Daddy's Sausage and Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Where is the mention of PASTA in this recipe? My husband and I did like this. We tried it with Pasta and without. With pasta;I thought it was average, MY HUSBAND LIKED IT A LOT! My husband likes sausage and peppers more than I do though. My husband suggested cutting the ITALIAN SEASONING BY HALF! He also used mild sausage but will try it with Spicy/HOT sausage next time. WE ALSO MADE THIS AND ATE IT ON ROLLS, WITHOUT PASTA, as a sandwich and it was pretty decent. My husband will make this again. It's a great starter recipe. ~Thanks

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
This is a very good "as is" recipe. Though we really liked it and would recommend it, it still isn't our all time favorite. The best yet is also on this site called "BBQ NY Strip". Check that one out also!

Grilled Asian Ginger Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
I gave this a 5 stars because it was VERY EASY AND VERY FLAVORFUL! I followed the recipe EXACTLY and for us it was a bit too much ginger, but its called Asian GINGER pork chops right? These pork chops grilled to a very NICE COLOR and I would try them again. Next time just for our taste I would cut the ginger to half the amount. But it is very good as is, ESPECIALLY to those ginger lovers out there! Thanks for a great and easy recipe.

Napa Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
Hearing people rate this recipe, but switching everything only makes it sound confusing to me. My husband made this for me and he FOLLOWED the RECIPE EXACTLY! WE BOTH LOVED IT! We were both pleasantly surprised how well the ingredients blended together. WE WILL MAKE AGAIN, JUST AS IS! ~Thanks.

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
Once again, so many people changing the original recipe then rating the original! I made this EXACTLY AS IS....what a YUMMY and EXCELLENT DISH!! The second time I made it I did add extra garlic only because I love "extra garlic", it was STILL GREAT! Timing was perfect! It was one of the TASTIEST potato dishes we EVER TASTED. The teenagers loved it too. The first time I made it, I kept having to look at the recipe, but now it's EASY TO MAKE. IF you have left-overs, they are JUST AS YUMMY! Thanks for the FLAVORFUL "AS IS" RECIPE!

Summer Pasta Salad II

It drives me crazy when people change the recipe then rate the original recipe! I followed RECIPE EXACTLY...it WAS GREAT! I love pasta salad but never really made my own until this recipe.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
I hate reviews that change the recipe then rate the original one, TRY the original one and let us know. SO..I FOLLOWED THE RECIPE EXACTLY..AWESOME! My husband is not a stir-fry fan, HE IS NOW! "Since trying" the original recipe I have played with it, added zucchini, carrots, etc.. No matter what I add to it, it is ALWAYS A WINNER. This is MUST TRY. THIS is going into my KEEPER RECIPE file! Thanks for a GREAT "AS IS" RECIPE!!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
I line in Arizona and my husband and I both love guacamole. We've eaten guacamole too many times to count and have made it countless times before. WE BOTH LOOOOVED THIS RECIPE! I followed the recipe exactly and it was THE BEST GUACAMOLE I EVER MADE! My husband is picky about salsa and guacamole, due to his grandmother who makes everything so awesome, but he even said this was the BEST ONE YET! MUST TRY!!! I WILL ONLY MAKE THIS GUACAMOLE FROM NOW ON! Thanks!

Cajun Buttered Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
I Have made this 20 times by now. EVERYBODY LOVES THIS! I've doubled the recipe for a crowd. My husband doesn't like regular corn now. Even if I make canned corn, I make the Cajun butter and add the canned corn directly into it (two cans). THIS IS AN ADDICTIVE RECIPE, IT IS SOOOOO GOOD!Try it, you wont regret it. I don't even need to look at the recipe anymore, I know it by heart. It's very yummy, A MUST TRY!

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
I'd give TEN STARS if I could! My husband likes smoked Gouda, we tried this as per the directions. SO EASY to make, SO SIMPLE and yet it TASTE GOURMET!!! Can PLEASE AND IMPRESS anyone you cook it for. Easy to grill! I bet you could switch whichever cheese you prefer and it would still be great! Why did I have to dig for this recipe, this should be the very first one that comes up when you ask for PORK CHOP RECIPES!! YEAH, THIS IS THE BEST!

BBQ NY Strip

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2007
My husband is very picky about his steaks...we both LOVED THIS MARINADE just as it is instructed to make! I was confused by the ingredient "steak seasoning" I used a dry steak seasoning similar to Montreal steak seasoning. I think whatever you use, dry or wet it will work just fine. I have now made this marinade about 5 times on different types of steaks, it is ALWAYS VERY GOOD. We like the fact that it enhances the steaks without overpowering the natural yummy flavor. This is an awesome exact as is recipe! DO TRY!
