Chicago Style Roast Duck

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This was definitely a good starter recipe for cooking duck. I didn't care much for the caraway seed.(not sure if it was taste or mostly texture)But the rest of my family loved this recipe. So second time around I made one like this and one minus the caraway. Both were gone quickly. Thank you for sharing!

World's Best Bacon Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I made a few changes to this. I used 1c. mayo, 1 package of cream cheese, 1c. sour cream, a bag of real bacon bits, 1 bunch of green onions, 1.5c. shredded cheddar cheese and a small tomato seeded and chopped. Baked it for 20 mins at 350 and served it with sour dough bread. The rest of the meal wasn't even touched, everyone filled up on this and cleaned the dish completely. Definitely a hit! Thanks for sharing! Definitely a recipe that can be played with to suit your family's taste.

Blueberry and Raspberry Pancake Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
My husband and kids absolutely loved this topping. I found it to be a bit too sweet for my taste though. Next time, I will definitely make two separate batches, one with half the sweetness requested.

Cherry Cobbler I

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
I only gave this a 2 star for now. Normally I read reviews prior to using a recipe, but this time i was in a hurry and skipped that part. That was my mistake. Much like others, mine turned out WAY too mushy. It smelled great while baking though, but to have left it in any longer it would have burned. I will try this recipe again, following some of the other reviews and reducing sugar and liquids. I hope it tastes as good as it smelled baking!!!

Easy Pepper Steak

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
I absolutely love pepper steak but lost my faithful recipe somewhere in the move. I have tried others before this, but this one beat them for flavor by far and came closest to my original recipe! I used leftover bbq'd steaks, cut very thin and into bite size pieces. I used 2 c. water with two packs beef bouillon powder instead of the swansons brand and I added freshly minced garlic cloves. After reading other reviews I tasted the broth and kept adding soy sauce until it had the flavor i was seeking. All in all, i used about 4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce. I used 2 fresh green peppers and 1 red pepper and 1 large onion, all thinly sliced and bite size pieces. Until i find my Grandmother's original recipe, this will definitely be the recipe I use! Thank you for sharing!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
My family loves sloppy joes while i'm not a complete fan. I absolutely despise the canned stuff so decided to try this recipe. I used about 1.5lbs of meat for this and i doubled the green peppers in it. I seasoned the meat while cooking, as i would with any other recipe and i used 3 cloves of fresh minced garlic as well. I pretty much doubled the sauce, using 1.5c ketchup and about 3/4 c bbq sauce. I only used the 3tbsp of brown sugar though as i found doubling that would have made it far too sweet. I didn't simmer near the time it says too as it was thickening quite quickly even on lowest heat. I served these on fresh kaiser buns with freshly diced onions and green pepper and grated cheese for toppers. Will definitely use this recipe again when my family wants sloppy joes. Thanks for sharing!

Ham and Cheese Pasta Bake

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
I tweaked this recipe a bit to use up leftovers. Instead of ham, i used chicken and crumbled bacon. I fried it with minced garlic and onions before adding to the dish. I didn't have rotini, so i used fettucini noodles broken into three. I did read other reviews, so i boiled my noodles for approximately 5 mins before adding to the casserole to get them started. I followed everything else exactly and it turned out perfect! This is a great starter recipe that can be tweaked and turned so many ways! There are endless possibilities with this basic start. Thank you for sharing!

Scottish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: May 11, 2012
It was leftover night so I made two separate dishes to suit everyone's likes. This was one of them! All four of my kids absolutely LOVED this recipe. I did tweak it a little bit..I added freshly minced garlic and onions to the ham and fried it for about ten minutes on high heat before putting in the casserole. The only thing i did find was that there was a bit too much cream corn, as it bubbled up and over the mashed potatoes (although it wasn't too much when eating it, it was actually perfect amount!!). So if using two cans, I recommend putting a pan under your casserole dish to catch the drippings or you will be cleaning your oven! Will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing!

Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
I doubled everything in this recipe except the mushrooms, i used only the two pounds I had, sliced thinly. I used 8 cups of chicken broth and 4 cups beef broth and I added 4 cloves of fresh garlic minced up. I did not add the green onions at the end. This recipe had a wonderful taste to it! Even my 18mth old loved it! For those like my hubby who can't fathom a meal without meat, I took some leftover pork chops, sliced the meat into thin strips, fried it with onions and served it over the soup. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing!!

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
I used about 6 strips of bacon and a fair handful of shredded cheese. I added a bit of extra mayo and I used honey mustard instead of regular mustard. These were good. Even my husband who isn't a big fan of deviled eggs ate 3 or 4 of them. Thank you for sharing!

Mashed Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
This is a great no fail, basic recipe. I started out following the recipe exactly and then just kept tasting it and adding things to it. I doubled the recipe and omitted the onions, using onion powder instead. then i added about half a pound of cooked and crumbled bacon, a cup of green onions chopped and roughly a cup of shredded cheese. I cooked most of them in the oven, but my husband wanted his fried so i did a few that way as well. I brushed all with egg but the ones fried in the pan the egg flavor was stronger and the insides stayed a bit more moist. The oven baked ones crisped up much nicer. Will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing!

Creamy Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
My family was a little put off by the look of this recipe but loved it and even came back for seconds. I used a bag of Uncle Ben's Natural Select roast chicken flavored rice and did what other reviewers suggested and added 1c sour cream and 1 can mushroom soup. I used a rotisserie chicken that was leftover from another meal and i added onions, carrots and peas to this recipe. For the topping i omitted the chow mein noodles and used french fried onions and about 1c of shredded cheese. Will definitely make this again! Thank you for sharing!

Barbecue Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
This was a big hit with my family. I used leftover homemade spicy bbq pulled pork that I had on hand, and added the veggies i would to any lasagna (grated carrot, peppers, onions, garlic and mushrooms) and omitted the ricotta cheese, and used only cheddar and mozza cheeses instead. My family liked it so much that i've now made this three times and it's always all gone! Thank you for sharing!

Classic Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I am rating this based only on my family's reviews as I don't like molasses cookies. They LOVED them! Of all the baking I did over the holidays, this was the first to go and i ended up having to make more. Thank you for the recipe!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
My very picky family really enjoyed this recipe. They even went back for seconds! I gave this 4 stars because i did find it a bit bland and needing extra spice to kick it up. It's a great starter recipe though! I made a few changes based on what i had on hand. I used a can of stewed tomatoes that i mixed italian spices into, and instead of removing the casings and crumbling the sausage, i just cut it into bite size links. I didn't add oil when cooking the sausage as i felt that was a little too much grease, and I used penne instead of bowtie pasta. Before serving I used a lite sprinkle of grated parmesan on top. Next time, i will spice it up a bit more with seasonings and i will use extra tomatoes as I feel they add a great flavour to this recipe. Thank you for sharing!

Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
I loved this recipe! but my very picky family only thought it was "okay". The only change i made in this was the balsamic vinegar - i didn't have any on hand so i used a mix of red wine vinegar & sugar (yes this is a valid substitution). Other than that, i kept to the recipe exactly. Would definitely make this again! thank you for sharing!

Seasoned Fan Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
I normally try to follow an exact recipe when i first try it. These were okay but i found them to be quite bland. The second time i made them i added quite a variety of spices including, garlic, onion, seasoning salt..and i tried to get the spices more in between each slice so the flavour was throughout the potato and not just on top. Next time.. i'm going to try skipping some of the dried spices and try using minced fresh garlic, onions, etc.

Pork-Potato Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
Not a big fan of ground pork, but these were fairly good. I added shredded carrot and minced garlic to mine, but otherwise kept to the recipe. My family really liked the meatballs, but none of us cared for the gravy. I think next time, i'll omit the gravy or use my own gravy recipe for these. Would probably taste really good with a sweet and sour sauce as well.

Ham and Cheese Bowties

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
my kids LOVED this recipe. I'm not a large fan of ham or cheese, but even i have to admit this was fairly good. I did change a couple of things. I used marble cheese instead of colby as that is what i had on hand, i added extra ham and more pasta. I actually ended up almost doubling the whole recipe to feed everyone. Instead of just the grated parmesan on top, i melted 2 tbsp of butter, added about 2 cups of coarse bread crumbs, 1 cup shredded marble and 1/2 cup parmesan and spread it over the top to bake. It gave it a nice crunchy topping that my kids were fighting over. My very picky kids loved this so much, they even ate it as leftovers (a rarity in my home), so this is a definite keeper and a 5 stars from me! Thank you for sharing!

Stewed Vegetables and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
This is the first time i have ever made or had ham soup. I had quite a bit of leftover ham and decided to try this. i modified this quite a bit to accomodate my big family. I double the amount of tomatoes and added 2 cans of tomato soup. I basically tripled the amount of broth, used 1 cup carrots, 1 cut celery, 1 cup peas, 1 cup corn and 1 can green beans. I used 2 cups of noodles and about 2 cups of cubed ham. I felt this was an okay recipe, but lacked a bit in flavour. I added seasoning such as garlic, onion powder, seasoning salt, salt, pepper, italian seasoning..and i also added a bay leaf for a short amount of the cooking time. this is a great basic ham soup recipe that can be tweaked and altered to fit anyones tastes. this would be good to make after a holiday as it can use up a lot of the leftover veggies and ham. You can almost add anything you want to this recipe. Thank you for sharing!
