Singapore Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
Great recipe. I added more water and soy sauce, along with snow peas and scallions.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This had a weird consistency for mashed potatoes and no garlic flavor - and I doubled the amount of garlic that the recipe called for!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
The best pot roast, and it keeps getting better each time I make it! I did find it too salty so I didn't season the meat with salt before browning, and I add the vegetables about 1 hour before the meat is done.

Easy Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
I just used cheese tortellini from Trader Joe's and Vidalia onions and skipped the carrots (too lazy to grate them). This was phenomenal. People who claimed not to care for pasta salads loved it. I made the dressing with very high quality oil and vinegar, which brought this over the top. And it really was easy - it was a last minute addition to a party buffet based on things I had on hand.

Chef John's Salt Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: May 30, 2014
This was amazing! The chicken was so moist. The gravy, however, didn't work for us. I took the 'salt generously' to heart and the pan drippings were way too salty. It had a great taste under all the salt so we'll try making the gravy again.

Welsh Rabbit (Rarebit)

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I made this as a fondue (added a little more cheese and some flour to thicken it) and had English muffin pieces as dippers. It's a keeper!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
I'm rating the recipe as written. After considerable time in the oven, the bacon became chewy rather than crispy. To bring this up to 5 stars, use the microwave and roll the wrapped sausages in the brown sugar rather than sprinkle it on top. You have to use toothpicks rather than skewers and rearrange them while cooking to have everything cook evenly, but they come out so much better.

Fried Onion Rings

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
Pay no attention to the nay-sayers of this recipe - it is REALLY good. Only change: salt and pepper to taste, not pinches. Otherwise, crispy and delicious!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
These were SO easy to do and fun to make. My only change: The recipe says to slice the onion rings 1/4" thick. These were too small and were overwhelmed by the batter. When I make them the next time I will slice the onions at least 3/4" thick so they don't get lost.

Pumpkin Brulee

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This makes a great Thanksgiving dessert - not the same old pumpkin pie. Only issue that I had: it took me about twice as long as stated in the recipe to get the brulee to set.

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This was SO good! I made these as mini-quiches fpr a party and they were quite a hit! (FYI: A half-recipe with 2 pie crusts makes about 3 dozen mini-quiches.)

Beef Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
This tasted to us just like a Swanson pot pie. How much you like them will tell how much you will like this.

Department Store Onion Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
This was SO good! I only wish I had made twice as much - we liked it that much,

All American Roast Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
This was the first time I ever made a beef roast and it turned out great! I added a cup of water as suggested by others. It was moist, juicy and tender. (I did make a rookie mistake of bringing the meat straight from the refrigerator to the oven, so it took a little longer to cook.) This got the highest compliment from our house: an enthustiastic "We can have this again!"

Zesty Barbeque Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly. We also did flat iron steaks and they were terrific. The only thing I will do differently is halve or quarter the recipe - this makes a huge amount of marinade!

Valentine Night Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
It's Valentine's night and we just finished our Valentine's Night Strawberries. So good! My husband is diabetic so we need a lower-carb alternative, and we hate artificial sweeteners. This was perfect! I did add vanilla extract as others suggested. I also skipped the nuts (personal preference). It really is like a reverse cheesecake.

Squash-Apple Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This was a hit at Thanksgiving dinner - even with the people who said they don't like squash! I cut the squash pieces to be about the same size as the apple pieces and it cooked within the time given in the recipe. I also used nutmeg and cinnamon rather than mace, and topped with walnuts to make it'fancy'. Yum!

No Sugar Added Cookies

Pizza Sauce and Dough

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I only made the sauce for a stromboli. It was so good! I used canned diced tomatoes and dried spices, but it came out great.
