Italian Beef in a Bucket

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Having lived all my life in Chicago until just a few years ago, I can tell you this is pretty darn close to the Italian Beef I grew up eating. I made it exactly as written except I left out the pickled vegetables in oil (I like to serve those on top of my sandwich). If you like your beef sandwiches 'wet' or 'dipped' as we say in Chi-Town, add more beef broth. I also like to use the sliced pepperonici (half a jar) rather than the whole peppers. I serve these on hard rolls and they are always a hit. This recipe is a life saver over the holidays when company drops in or the kids come home from school with their college friends.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
This soup is as delicious as it is simple to make. I added 1 additional can of brown lentils to make it a bit heartier but otherwise stayed true to the original recipe. Wonderful, Gabriella!

Mom's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I am a clean eating foodie but this recipe rescued me in a pinch and no one would ever know it wasn't made from scratch. This dish came out creamy and delicious. I also followed the advice of using 2 cans of soup and some sour cream and it was a big hit. I used a deep casserole that I lightly greased beforehand and finished it under the broiler to lightly brown the top. This is a great recipe when you don't have a lot of time and want to feed a lot of hungry people. Thanks, Courtnay and mom!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
What an exceptional recipe and easy way to have turkey all year round! I added wedged onions and celery to the bottom of the crockpot, mixed the onion soup mix with 1/4 cup of soft butter and rubbed both under and over the skin. I added no liquid and cooked as directed. I took the leftovers along with all the juice and put it in the fridge overnight. It was even better over the next day or two! I am definitely making this at Thanksgiving as 'back up' as I can now roast a smaller bird and have this in addition. Thank you, Ms. Sally!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
These were wonderful! We were at PF Changs the following night and my husband refused to order the lettuce wraps because he said they couldn't possibly compare to the homemade ones. I made only one change and that was to use ground turkey in place of the beef. Great to be able to make these at home!

Cadillac Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
I have tried several recipes for pimento cheese and this is hands down our favorite. I substituted sharp cheddar for the processed American and packed up sandwiches for a long flight from the east coast of the U.S. to the west coast. They were devoured before the plane took off! Simple and straightforward, this is the recipe I will be keeping!

Zucchini Egg Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
This is a delicious way to showcase summer zucchini. After removing from the oven, I topped it with thinly sliced garden tomatoes, a sprinkle of additional cheese and popped it under the broiler for a few moments. It's great for breakfast but equally yummy as a light lunch with a salad. Thanks, Kim! You have a winner!

White Peach Sangria

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
I made this for a Memorial Day weekend cookout and all of us loved it. I served it with appetizers and everyone wanted the fruit after the sangria was gone. I let it chill for 6 hours and it came out perfect. I plan on making it again this weekend!

The Original Potato Salad with Real Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
This is the recipe my mother made most often and is the one I refer back to in a pinch when I am short on time. Sweet pickles can be added to taste. It's creamy, old fashioned flavor is perfect for those summer picnics and backyard parties!

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
My family loved this recipe. My only changes were due to what I had on hand. I subbed a can of Rotel for 1 can of soup and black beans for the kidney beans. I served this with a cornbread souffle, sour cream and shredded cheddar. This is my new go-to healthy chili recipe. Thanks, Laura!

Slow Cooker Maple Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2004
We use boneless country style ribs and add 1/2 bottle of BBQ sauce to this recipe. We don't cook them until they fall apart (more like 4-5 hours on low) and then grill them for a few minutes on our gas grill. They make wonderful sandwiches or just serve like BBQ'd pork chops with your favorite side dishes. This is one of our favorites, and we have never had a problem with lack of taste as other reviewers have.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
This roast was delicious! I doubled the sauce ingredients as suggested and served over rice the first day. Day two, we shredded it and mixed it with BBQ sauce and had it on buns. It was tender and moist and is definitely a keeper.

Mexican Cornbread Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2003
This was a bit of work and was not all that popular with my co-workers at our summer potluck. It was very pretty to look at it, and one or two enjoyed it, but it made a lot and I threw almost half of it away. I will not make again.

Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
This was as delicious as it was easy to prepare! I used 1 cup of fresh salsa and added crushed fresh garlic at the very end of the cooking time. I also added more than one cup of wine (more like 1.5) and seasoned with freshly ground black pepper before serving. We served it over white rice, and my husband had 3 bowls the first night, and ate ALL the leftovers. This makes quite a bit, so it would be great for company.

Roasted Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2003
I used regular cream of potato soup and added seasoned salt for extra flavor. I also doubled the recipe to feed 16 people and there were no leftovers. Easy to assemble and was told by a potluck hostess "This one is a keeper!"

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2002
I have made my share of turkeys, and this was the EASIEST and tastiest bird ever! I made a 25lb stuffed bird, popped it in at 5:00AM, checked it at 8:00 to baste, and then did not baste again until 10:00 AM. By 10:30 it was done and falling off the bone! I cooked it at 350* and my family raved over it. It makes wonderful leftovers and I plan on using this recipe over and over again. Thank you, Robin!

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2002
I am not a 'beef stew' eater by any stretch, but this sounded like something my husband would enjoy. We all raved about this dish! I used half wine and half beef broth instead of all wine, omitted the canned onions and doubled the mushrooms instead. I served it over large egg noodle dumplings, and we could not stop eating it! My husband insisted I make this again, as it was by far the best stew dish he had tasted, and that's saying something as he is an excellent cook, and handles 75% of the 'chefing' in our home! Thank you for sharing this, Teri!

Real N'awlins Muffuletta

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2002
I made this for Superbowl, omitting the capers and mortadella. Delicious! My husband, who was hesitant about the recipe, just loved it. One hint, make sure your olives are well drained and dried off with paper towels if you don't want the salad to taste too briny. This would be great to take on picnics or car trips as it can be made in advance, and keeps well in the fridge otr a cooler. Thanks, Boo!
