Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Like others I made only minor adjustments. I added 1/2 lb. of ground veal and one small onion, chopped. I experimented by trying to put some of the mix into large Pop-Over pans and the rest in small 3.5"x6" loaf pans. In both cases I put them on cookie sheets to catch the grease and poured off the excess grease 10 minutes prior to finish. The taste is excellent, but I can understand why the original recipe doesn't call for pans at all. There's alot of grease. For two people the small loaf pan size is perfect. I wouldn't do the pop-over pan again, too small and too much grease.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2013
This is very, very tasty and filling. We're dieting, so we wanted something that was low fat and yet satisfied our craving for pasta. As others have said, all the effort is in the prep work of cutting up the veggies, but once you do that, it's a breeze. We added a spinach salad and we were happy, happy! The only thing we omitted was the cherry tomatoes, since I didn't have any.

King Crab Appetizers

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Took the advice of others and used 2 packages of frozen Phyllo cups (15 to a pkg.) which worked perfectly. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly except I used 8 oz. of immitation crab meat. I took this to an outdoor party where they were gone in a flash! Super easy, very tasty.

Apple Crisp I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I tossed the cored, sliced apples with about 1/4 cup of white sugar, and a teaspoon each of nutmeg and cinnamon. I didn't have packaged oatmeal, so I used about 1/2 cup quick oats instead. I put half the apples in the dish, half the crumble mix, then the rest of the apples topped by the remaining crumble mix and topped w/maple syrup. Turned out great!

Honey Roasted Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
I've made these twice recently and they're not only super tasty...but easy. I shake the pan two - three times while they're cooking to ensure even heat. My carrots were kind of on the thinner side (probably due to buying them in February in Northern Michigan), so they only took about 35 minutes.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
Very easy. I microwaved the olive oil and garlic for 30 seconds or so and followed the recipe exactly. Tasty and very moist. Don't skip any of the ingredients.

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
So easy, you could do in half asleep. We grilled the asparagus half way through grilling lobster tails (recipe also on Allrecipes) and everything came out perfectly. Crisp to the bite, yet lightly flavorful from the olive oil and salt and pepper.

Tender Pheasants

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
I was really pleased with this recipe. I used one smallish pheasant and one large, which fit nicely into my large slow cooker. I only had 8 strips of bacon, only 1/2 cup of sour cream and all the other ingredients and it came out perfectly moist, falling off the bone after 6 hours on medium/high setting (my cooker has 4 settings). Served it with fresh asparagus and wild rice. Yum!

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I took the advice of other cooks and sauteed a small onion and generously coated the chops with garlic salt and freshly ground pepper. While the onions were sauteeing, I threw in a couple tablespoons of Worchestershire sauce and let that saute a few minutes more. I used a 8"x8" ceramic dish and layered the onions, then the browned chops and topped it with the mushroom soup/milk/water mix. I used a lower temp. - 325 degrees for 1.5 hours since my husband was on the golf course and didn't come home exactly as planned. I'm sure that's never happened to anyone else!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
So amazingly easy. I like this better than another version that calls for using cream of chicken soup in the recipe. There's no need for the extra fat and calories and the topping (crackers) stay crisp this way.

Yummy Taco Salad Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
This is an old classic, I only tweak it by buying store made guacamole, using 4 Roma tomatoes, chopped olives and only 8 oz. of shredded Mexican style cheese. I end up serving it with a spoon on the side as well as those teeny little spreaders so people can do their own spreading.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
My husband is a bit of a hash brown snob and he simply went nuts over this recipe. I thought it was pretty simple and followed the recipe to the letter. I think the key is making sure the potatoes are thoroughly rinsed and squeezed as dry as possible, and use a heavy pan. I used a Lodge 10.5 inch cast iron skillet. I used Canola oil for the oil and it really only needed about 5 minutes per side. My husband said they were so good,he didn't want to add ketchup (that's high praise!) Since there's just two of us, we saved half for breakfast tomorrow morning.

Grilled Rock Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
We had teeny, tiny lobster tails, about 4 ounces each and they were perfect after about 3 minutes on the first side and only 2 minutes on the second side. We reduced the olive oil to 1/4 cup. Fabulous!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Fabulous and easy too! I used half a head of cauliflower for just two of us and reduced the other ingredients accordingly. You need to keep an eye on the last few minutes as it can burn quickly.

Ali's Greek Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
Like others I doubled the dressing, but ended up using only a little extra. I tossed 1 cup with the tortellini and refrigerated it, turning it over with a spatula every 30 minutes for about four hours. I also cut way back on the spinach leaves, using about 2/3 bag. Used only four eggs and sliced them thin. Added grape tomatoes, sliced in half. Added a few tablespoons of the dressing at the end, but adding all would have made it swim in dressing. Everyone loved it. We had this as a side dish with crock pot moussaka.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
I was skeptical that this would work, but it was fabulously delicious and so simple. I followed the advice of others and smeared 1 tbl. butter on the inside of the crock pot and 1 tbl. butter on the 6.3 lb. bone-in turkey breast I had. I used slightly less than one onion soup packet and ground it up before smearing it over the buttered breast. One hour on high and 7 hours on low was perfect. I cheated by flipping the breast over during the last hour of cooking. I removed the breast and tented it with foil and returned the crock pot to high and added 2 tbl. cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water to the pot and let it cook another 10-15 minutes and then strained it into a gravy boat. Wonderful flavor, not oniony at all.

Bacon Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This was quick and easy and I just substituted for anything I didn't have on hand. For example, I didn't have whole milk, so I used 1 cup of skim and 1 cup of fat free half/half. I used 2 cups of potatoes and had only 6 oz. of Velveeta slices. Tastes great!

Three Pepper Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
I made the recipe according to the directions with a minor adjustment of less olives, about half, and less mozzarella (4 oz.). It was still excellent and my nephew who normally says he doesn't like pasta salad actually had seconds.
