Grilled Sausage with Potatoes and Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
An easy and awesome meal. I was fortunate to have a nice smoked sausage from the meat market, but I'm sure a Johnsonville smoke sausage would be just as good. Everything else I used were basic ingredients, red potatoes and fresh beans from the garden; I don't measure but use judgement according to how my family prefers things. This was a hit and I do plan to use it again.

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
A repeat recipe in our home. Easy and very nice for something special or just because you enjoy coconut shrimp.I didn't have cornstarch so used flour, worked fine. I didn't do the full pound as we wouldn't have 'enjoyed' the rest of the evening tomorrow may be an encore it was that SIMPLE. Used the whole egg rather then just the whites worked well.

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2013
Excellent alternative to regular BBQ out of a bottle, much lighter and ours was juicy & moist. I did reduce the syrup to 1/4 cup as others recommended, that goes without saying for my family since we prefer savory with a kick of heat. I prepared just over 3lbs of chicken tenders and increased sauce by an additional half and used one full onion. My measurements were liberal in the season salts as we do like a little heat and it was a perfect subtle after heat flavor.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
This wasn't bad really I just like my normal way of preparing sweet potatoes better. I was looking for a change so tried this. Mixed reviews from our guest, but most felt it had a desert taste over our savory version. I did eliminate the sugar in the potato mixture and did eliminate the eggs because it was looking like pumpkin pie rather than sweet potato's and I was already serving pie. The topping was very tasty but did add a little more sweetness than I was looking for.

Black Bean and Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Wonderful alternative for a cold salad. I made adjustments due to what I had on hand. Used bottled OJ with pulp, apple cider vinegar & a tsp of tarragon leaf, 1/2 tsp of cumin because I like it. I had pecans rather than cashews and dried cherries rather than cranberries. All substitutions seemed to work fine, the dish earned good reviews and requests for the recipe. I will use it again.

Wild Rice and Pepper Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Awesome, easy and has a great light flavor with the lemon zest which I added a little more than called for. Simple and well worth the effort. Oh, we didn't have the long grain wild rice so we used white minute rice and wild rice in a nice combination.

Mini Blue Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
I've used this twice now, its a hit and will be used again. I've used it as an accompaniment to fall soups (squash, pumpkin), it's great for that. Eaten and raved about. Once I cut into the bits, that was nice but the second time I didn't have the time. The bread sticks were big so I cut them in half, twisted them that worked fine. with the bits I tossed them in with the melted butter and blue cheese rather than pouring over, the sticks I did pour over and basted to cover completely. Cooked as directed on bread container and to my desire. I also reduced the amount of butter used and saw no issue in doing that, I don't measure, but would say maybe 3 Tbls rather that 4, basically under a half a stick. Love them, try it if you like blue cheese!!

Taco Dip I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
A little bland for my liking. I don't undertrstand the green pepper considering the taco seasoning but we added it and it wasn't bad, we also added onion. all in all its a good start but needs a little more spice. We served with jalapeno's and taco sauce.

Cabbage and Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Great start and I say that only because I made so many modifications because of what I had in the house. THANK YOU for the ideas. To begin I don't measure anything, I go by tastes we like and what how many I need to feed. For meat we use a spicey turkey kielbasa & pasta (we had left) we used stuffed pasta w/butternut squash (prepared as directed). We sauted red onion & 2 garlic cloves in bacon grease, tossed in cabbage (we could have used more) it always cooks down more than we expect, sauted until soft crunchy, put in pasta heated through. Ground pepper & Salt to taste and ENJOYED!!! The pasta gave a sweat offset to the spicey meat. What a nice alternative for kielbasa.

Orange Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
This recipe didn't go over as well as we'd hoped. It was easy to prepar, but not the right flavor for us with pork, the OJ was too sweet, and the taste of soy sauce wasn't right either. Over all it was fine if the taste meets your preferences

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
Not bad and was easy. I don't think I used all the butter nor the bread crumbs called for. I didn't need the fat in the butter and didn't want to waste bread crumbs not used. I added seasoning to taste on my bread crumbs and added a small amount of corn meal as I'm trying to use it up. The corn meal added a nice texture. Chicken was moist and very flavorful. I'll make it again, I never rate things a full five star, same as I never make EXACTLY as stated. There is always room for someone to improvise or make improvements. Good recipe and worth trying adding your own twists.

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
Made the sauce as directed with a little less chicken & I used chicken tenders. It was EASY & delicious. I would make a great crock pot dinner its great coming home to the bulk of dinner cooked already!! Whip up & a yummy steamed veggie & the family will think you slaved all day. I would double sauce if I used more chicken or I suppose I could season the rice with something yummy too.

Company Chicken Pasta Salad with Grapes

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
This was a tasty variation with the cummin and curry. Loved that with the grapes. I did add more dressing, onion, garlic salt & s/p. I used bow tie pasta and would change that next time. Every one liked the change to a standard chick pasta, it's worth a try if your audience like curry and cummin.

Kielbasa and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
This was excellent as directed. I initially thought the sugar would not be needed but while tasting before serving it was necessary that with the red pepper flake was perfect. I did go over on red pepper a little, but that wasn't necessary. Great as written, we'll make again. thanks

Easy Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
It was just alright to me. A full lime juiced seemed a little strong on citris and I did not add water non was needed. I added cumin as others suggested. I liked the touch of red provided by the pepper, I didn't have a ful pepper, but 2/3 and it was perfectly fine. Will try again but reduce lime juice.
