Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I made this for dinner. I pretty much followed it to a T. I did add about 1 tablespoon of freshly chopped dill into the mayo/cheese mixture and 1/4 tspn of garlic powder. It turned out great. Everyone in my family loved it. This is a super super easy recipe to follow. It's a great fast recipe for those days you don't feel like cooking ! I served this with zucchini boats.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Everyone in my family disliked this meal. I reduced the amount of cooking by alot. I cooked it for only 2.5 hours in the slow cooker and the chicken was still incredibly dry. The oregano overpowered the chicken . Will not make again.

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Super Easy to make. I followed the advice of others and tossed the flour with the cheese before adding it to the wine. I used a Sauvignon Blanc that was nice and dry. Spend the money for the good wine especially if you are using good expensive cheese. We dipped boiled baby potatoes, asparagus, baby carrots (blanched), red potatoes, french bread, grapes, granny smith apples and grape tomatoes. Made this for Fondue Virgins and they loved it ! Will keep this recipe !! I did add the nutmeg which I was hesitant about but it turned out great !

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Loved this meal. I marinated the chicken in a ziploc bag with Italian dressing which I added about 1/4 tspn of Greek seasoning to. I marinated it for about two days. Hadn't planned on marinating it that long but that's how it worked out. The yogurt sauce is delicious. My family loved this one. We ate until we were almost sick.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
This was great. I loved it !! I tweaked the recipe a bit. I used a london broil (all I had). Sliced it very thin and sauteed it in butter. I added about 3 medium onions (sliced). Added 2 cans of low sodium beef broth and 24 ounces of sliced fresh mushrooms. I also put it in the pressure cooker for 25 minutes. It made the meat so tender and it took less time. After I opened the pressure cooker I added 1 tblspoon of cornstarch to 1/2 cup of wine and added a few dashes of Worsceshire sauce. I also added 1/2 package of onion soup mix. At the very end I added about 1/2 cup of sour cream. Served with egg noodles. This recipe is a keeper. I love Beef Stroganoff but it never came out flavorful enough. This was awesome. Thank You !!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
Very tasty and super easy recipe to make. I cooked the onions first before adding the beef. Cooked thoroughly and then added the remaining ingredients and transferred to crock pot. I have also substituted one of the cans with black beans. I added a package of Ranch dressing (the dry mix). It seems to give it a really nice flavor. This recipe is pretty versatile. You can use ground turkey to make it healthier. Great meal to make ahead of time and easy to alter so you can feed a large crowd. Thanks

Seared Tuna with Wasabi-Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Wow. Really yummy sauce. Things I did differently were... I used only 1 stick of butter and substituted onions for the shallots because I didn't have any shallots. I also used white vinegar Instead of white wine vinegar. Didn't have any wasabi powder/paste so I used the wasabi that we had last night with our sushi. Not sure if that is the same thing but it all worked out in the end. I didn't add the soy until the very end because I only had salted butter and I was afraid it was going to be too salty. Turns out it wasn't so I added the soy at the very end. Did Not use the fresh cilantro because almost everyone in my family hates cilantro except for ME. I think the cilantro would add another wonderful dimension. ALL in ALL this sauce is wonderful. I literally could have drank it. It did turn out a bit thin, not sure why but it didn't matter. It was delicious. I would absolutely make this sauce again.

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
Love this dish. It is soooo easy to make it's a sin !! I have made it the night before and baked it the following day. It's always a hit. I make this alot during Thanksgiving. My daughter just made this for us the other night and she's 16 ! Super easy and tasty and fairly cheap to make.

Chicken Crunch

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
Awesome!! I followed previous suggestions from this site: I had 3 chicken breasts (which I cubed). I sauteed 1/2 of a medium onion (chopped) with 2 small garlic cloves (minced) in about 2 tablespoons of good olive oil. I sauteed until the onions were transparent and added the garlic... and then I added the cubed chicken. Cooked pretty thoroughly. I also added 12 ounces of broccoli cuts (still frozen) when all the chicken was cooked I added 1/4 teaspoon of poultry seasoning. In a separate bowl I mixed 2 cans of Cream of MUSHROOM soup, 8 ounces of sour cream and 1/2 cup of white wine. I mixed that in with the cooked chicken, garlic and onions and broccoli. I dumped it all in a casserole dish. I melted 1/2 cup of butter and drizzled that over 2 cups of herb seasoned stuffing and tossed. I sprinkled that over the casserole and then topped with about 1/4 cup of French Fried Onions. Baked at 350 degrees uncovered for about 30 minutes in a 9x10 inch casserole dish. All I can say is WoW !!! The smell in the kitchen was unreal. Everyone in my family loved it and it fed 6 people, 3 adults and 3 kids and I had leftovers. I will be making this again. Not only is it easy to make but it is inexpensive. By the way , I did not use the low sodium soups because I didn't have them. The casserole was not salty at all! We ate it with spinach risotto and leftover Corn Casserole III (found on allrecipes).

Cheesy Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
I think what I did wrong was make this salad a day ahead. It was pretty dry. I even mixed another mayo/sour cream mixture before serving it but it wasn't as good as when I first had mixed it the day before. I omitted the sugar all together per the previous reviewers. I also used red onion instead of green b/c I didn't have any. My daughter also like the salad when it was still warm and not refrigerated. I will try this again but I won't make it ahead of time. I also added a ton of bacon bit far more than what it called for. Next time I also might add a dry ranch dressing mix to the mayo/sour cream mixture. That'll give it another kick.

London Broil Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
This was pretty salty for me. I guess it's the brown gravy and dry onion soup mixture. Wasn't too crazy about this one. Probably will try a different one next time.

Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
This is a really good salsa. I made it this past weekend and it was delicious. Things I did differently were : I used Fresh tomatoes not canned. About 2 medium ones that I chopped and took the pulp out of. I also added 2 tablespoons of TACO seasoning mix. This gave it a nice flavor. You can also substitute with cumin if you'd like. I omitted the oil and the avocado. I added about 1/4 cup of chopped jalapeno in. I let it sit over night so the flavors could marinate really well. With the leftovers I made black bean quesadillas the next day adding cheddar cheese to the tortillas. Will make again !!

White Bean Spread With Garlic & Rosemary

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
This recipe is really good and super easy. Things I did... I sauteed the garlic in about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. I added the drained beans and sauteed them a little bit. I added a 1/4 cup of white wine. Warm through and then added to the food processor and pulsed. I also added about 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese in the processor. Used this on crusty Italian bread. I topped some with hot peppers to add a little heat and those were the best ones!!! Very easy recipe to make and different from the usual appetizers you put out. Thanks

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
Wow. Very delicious. I could eat the whole bowl. I followed Auntie June's recommendations and added some chili powder. I also added a teensy bit of cumin powder. What I did... drained 2 cans of Mexican Stewed tomatoes added the garlic , put in a small onion chopped in large pieces. I added alot of cilantro since I love it. A bit more than it called for. Added the lime juice, salt, cumin and chili powder and jalapeno wheels. I pulsed a few times and found Salsa Heaven. Thanks !!!

Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
Really easy and tasty dressing. Here is what I did...I substituted the sour cream with plain fat free yogurt and I doubled the crumbled bleu cheese. We used this for dip for our Buffalo Wings. I also Did Not use a blender. I wanted it a bit chunky and it turned out really well. I also only made enough for 10 servings and it was plenty for what I needed it for. Will use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing !!!

Shrimp Scampi III

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Very good scampi recipe. I've made scampi before but not very well. What I did was add alot of garlic in the butter... sauteed and kept the garlic in. I used at least 6 cloves. Sauteed the shrimp added the white wine and then added some chicken broth because we like our pasta a little bit soupier as opposed to dry. Added a little less bread crumbs and also added some lemon juice. Used spaghetti because I didn't have any angel hair. Also added red pepper seeds to my own individual plate b/c I like it a little bit spicy. The key is to cook the shrimp for only a few minutes. The longer you cook it the toughter it gets. You can even under cook it a bit and it will continue to cook after you add it to the hot pasta. Sprinkle the whole thing with parmesan and it'll be perfect. My Mom puts her scampi in the broiler and then tosses it with the pasta. I didn't do that.

Reuben Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
Followed the recipe almost to a T. It was pretty good although my kids weren't too thrilled with it. My husband really liked it but thought it needed some mustard. I toasted some rye bread cubes and topped the casserole with them so it wouldn't be so soggy. Turn out good. Super simple to make. Not sure I would make it again since the kids wouldn't eat it. I did find it a tiny bit salty. Not sure why. I forgot to rinse the sauerkraut. Not sure if that had anything to do with it.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
I only gave this a 3 because it was somewhat soggy. I halved the recipe and made muffins with the batter. I added pecans to the mix. The muffins were very tasty but too moist. If that's possible. The tops of the muffins were some what doughy. Not sure why. Maybe It was something I did. I did check them with a toothpick before getting them out of the oven.

Chicken Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Good recipe. Instead of the spices I just used 1 1/2 packages of taco seasoning. I also used 1 14 oz can of Rotel tomatoes with chiles. I also used leftover chicken I had from some chicken soup I made. I saute'd an onion , added tortillas, chicken, taco seasoning, tomatoes, broth. I added a can of corn and a can of beans to make the soup a little bit thicker. This is a good base but could be great with some additions. I would give it 3 without my tweaking. With my tweaking I'd say it's a 5.

Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Very good and easy recipe but I felt it wasn't sweet enough. I added only 3 bananas and maybe that had something to do with it. It's a very good recipe and I will make it again but next time I will add a little bit of white sugar to the mix. I also took the suggestion from someone else and added 1/4 cup of sour cream. Added brown sugar to the top and some oats to give it a little crunch.
