Asian Marinated Asparagus

Reviewed: May 18, 2015
this is what happened after I made it according to directions and allowing it to marinade @5 hours. my wife had to wolf down 5 just to ,"make sure it's spiced correctly." I loved watching her, lol. I do believe it does need more vinegar and more heat. dang fine recipe as is!

Aunty Sam Lin's Boiled Rocks

Reviewed: May 8, 2015
I changed it somewhat. I put some sand and sea-water in a pressure cooker and stuck 'em both in an acme time machine. I was looking for diamonds and only got really hot mud. maybe slow-cooker?

Oktoberfest Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2015
I made this today for easter tomorrow. I used fresh scallions and backyard wild onion greens. I also used baby Yukon golds and baby red potatos. I doubled the recipe, after hearing from both daughters that they WERE coming. I'm waiting on this to cool off before I put it away for tomorrow...ok, actually I can't keep a fork out of it :)

Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2015
I changed this significantly. I still gave this a 5 star rating. I made this as written 1st time. I've since made this 4-5 times in 3 months. I leave out--cilantro,cumin, salt, bacon and chili powder. yep, this is a totally different recipe now., soak pintos over night. drain strain use low sodium chicken stock , sweet onion, plenty of fresh ground pepper and butter to taste. simmer until you can't wait any longer. drain again. add rotel mild maters and chilis, a small can of hatch chilis, add velvetta Mexican cheese, pepperjack cheese and mozz cheese. use an immersion blender and pulse it to your desire . sour cream and red bell pepper cornbread and cow-juice will fill a hungry stomach with a nice meal.

Pork Loin, Apples, and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2015
i halved the recipe due to the size of the roast. i forgot the brown sugar and didn't have thai seasonings. i discovered i had no apple cider, so after asking on the buzz i got an excellent sub--apple sauce. it cooked @ 2 1/2 hours. it didn't look pretty but it sure did taste good!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Vegetables With Thyme and Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2015
awesome simple recipe. we had never eaten parsnips ( I thought they were albino carrots.) also, I'm not a big fan of maple syrup. we happened to have some the wife had bought up north. I doubled the recipe to have left-overs, dang it...I should have tripled it. no left-overs. seriously thinking of planting parsnips here. thanks for a great dinner with a favorite new (to us) vegetable.

Tomato Zucchini Squash Skillet

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
I didn't have yellow squash, left it out. I used a mixture of olive oil and butter. I added a large clove of minced shallot to the vidilia onion. I added a dusting of panko and parm cheese. even with mostly hot house grown maters and zukes it was very good. served with dill pickle meatloaf and mac and cheese. when our garden comes in, I'll be sure to trot this easy recipe out again.

Crab and Shrimp Delight

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2015
the wife wanted crab and shrimp quiche. I cook, my choice. made this and actually almost followed the recipe. changes-- seriously sharp cheese from cabot, 1/2 and 1/2 for cow juice sub, imitation crab, subbed half low fat mayo and low fat sour cream for the mayo, and added English peas. I did add old bays and green tobacco sauce. I tried this first as written, it was good but bland, these changes suited our taste, I'm sure folks are gonna love this as written! oops, I did break up the angel hair pasta and added it. it was fine. update...I did boil the pasta @ 4 minutes, much better. the wife said this is one of the best things she has ever eaten.

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2015
I had to add more bread crumbs ( the good Italian ones that we all use.) I did not have parm cheese on hand ( oops.) I did his cooking method. I wanted to just throw them in the sauce uncooked. I only made 20 balls . wife loves big balls.......so I saved half the balls for another noodle journey. excellent balls!

Grandma Maggio's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2015
I left the salt out. just a pinch of sugar. I left this, after a quick boil, on a simmer for @7 hours. this was very good. I really should have doubled this. I wanted to use this sauce in lasagna. too many taste testings :) I used chef john's meatball recipe with this. a killer combination!

Mel's Crab Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2015
how can anything this good be this easy? HEY, I'm almost a food snob...ALMOST ok, I used equal amounts sour cream, mayo and ranch dressing. it was difficult to allow this to conjugate all night, but never interrupt a love fest :) I did use all ingredients and then added some Cajun seasonings wrapped in romaine lettuce and added some Italian shredded cheese. my snob card has been officially cancelled. thanks mis7up!

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
hey, I'm a tweaker! I followed the recipe until I decided the reviews had merit and I ventured down that course. I used the suggestion of much less sugar, Italian bread crumbs and some grated parm. cheese. I don't understand why folks get bent out of shape if you can see a recipe has potential and you customize for your family..anyways, I appreciate the recipe as written, but...after reading the reviews this recipe was enhanced. hey, think about it...do you still drive a model T?
