Slow Cooker Cassoulet

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
I followed this recipe exactly, except for omiting the salt and for adding 1 chicken bullion cube into it. It disolved nicely and it added the salt the recipe called for. I served it with honey brandied baby carrots and homemade fruit cocktail along with french bread and honey butter. My girlfriend's family loved it, and it was a easy menu to do buffet style, informal, yet understated elegance.

Pork Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
It is a great versitle recipe. However for hunters and families of hunters, many of these recipes can easily be adapted to game.They also can be tasty. I made it with venision chops. The sauce complimented any game flavor. I served it with a barley pilaf and a honey tossed fruit and berry salad. The presentation was great.

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
The stuffing goes great with a deepfried turkey, if you bake the stuffing on the side. The stuffing and fried turkey are a new "football" tradition for when we have a few family and friends over

Honey Mustard Beer Brats

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
Because of my work schedule, I grill marked the brats on my grill the day before, for just a few minutes. I did make the recipe the following day, per directions and it turned out great. I did use more beer than required, but beer can be good. I will absolutly prepare this again, in the fall for Monday night football, so it is ready when I come home from work and the game is about to start. (side note: for all of you bear and packer fans out there, GO VIKINGS!!)

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I modified this recipe for venision. Follow the directions of the recipe, except do not brown the venision chops. top the chops with bacon(4-6 pieces)cover and bake. Uncover the last 5 to 8 minutes, to brown bacon and chops. Remove Chops and Bacon. Dice bacon and mix into potato mixture. It turns out great! Home made bread, and roasted vegetables, (onion, carrot, celery, button mushrooms, red and green peppers, mixed together) make this an awesome autumn and winter meal.

Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
This recipe works well with wild game such as duck, goose, and awesome as a sauce over slow cooked, then sliced elk and venision roasts. I don't eat my wild game any other way.

Roasted Red Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
This makes a great presentation, and its taste isn't just generic. I substituted Bleu Cheese for the Feta cheese, I used the bleu cheese in both the stuffing with the red peppers and the sauce. I also garnished it with freshly chopped cilantro.

Crab Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
I modified this recipe, and added california blend vegetbles and shredded colby-jack cheese. It went really well with (Villa Mt. Edan Pinot Noir), Crusty Italian bread with honey butter, and a salad of mixed greens tossed with fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries and blueberries) with a rasberry vingerette. My girlfriend loved it!

Tortellini Pesto Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
This is a good recipe, that is not so generic, like so many of your other pasta salad recipes. I followed the recipe completly, except I used roasted red peppers (from a jar) instead of the fresh ones, and I ommited the olives. It was tasty and I received compliments on it from some very picky and not so darring diners. Thanks for the recipe and everyone else who submits recipes, reviews and hints.

Pepperoni Caesar Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
Great Recipe: I did make a few changes, I increased the caesar dressing to 3/4 cup. After the pasta was cooked, and still warm, I tossed it with 1/4 cup dressing and let it cool in the refrigerator tossing it occasionally. The pasta absorbed the dressing as it was cooling. I also added 1/4 cup Shredded parmesan Cheese. Before serving I tossed the broccoli, pepperoni, cheese and dressing with the pasta and sprinked Italian Seasoning on top as a garnish. It came out great, and I was told that I have to bring it to all of our other family functions. Thanks for a simple, uniqe and tasty recipe.

Chilled Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
This is a great recipe. I sprinkled (store bought) real bacon bits on top also. It was definatly an impressive salad, and a keeper. I suggest that you try it. I would think that it may work with Broccoli Spears also.

Sunday Gumbo

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
Great recipe for potlucks, as it is good, but something different. For at home for the family or with guests, I serve it with corn and/or ginger breads with honey butter. Nothing else is needed for a great meal.

Mexican Chicken I

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
I tried this recipe and all enjoyed it. I however like colorfull foods so I substituted one of the cans of blackbeans for pinto beans. It added nice color and texture. I also did like others and mixed the beans with the salsa and added 1/4 cup of water. It kept everything moist and by the time it was done baking, the beans had abborbed the water, so that they were tender and not dry. I served it with jicima sticks, and a rice pilaf of lime,diced jalapeno, green onion and fresh cilantro. One of my guests asked for the recipe and wants to try this dish on top of a bed of lettuce greens with vegetables for a "type of a taco salad" Thanks, hope this review is helpfull to you as other reveiws have been have been for me.

Easy Cheesy Chicken Bake

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
I used 1/2 can of milk with the soup (instead of the water) and I used Frozen Southern Style Diced Hashbrowns (not the shredded ones) for the potatoes and it came out great. I also added 1 diced roasted red pepper for color. I would recomend this for a quick and easy winter dinner, especially after a day of cross country sking, sledding etc.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
It is a good recipe, especially for those with busy schedules...I placed chopped garlic, finely sliced green onion (2) with basil and paprika under the skin and it really flavored it, nicely. It is worth trying and experimenting with until you get your own taste preference.

Ranch Bean Dip

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I served in a chaffing dish. For a garnish, I sprinkled shredded provolone cheese, a bit more chedder (to give it that multi colored melted cheese look) and finely diced green onions and let them all "float" on the top. It made a nice presentation. As the day went on, it was also easy to "re-garnish" the dish.
