Strawberry Pretzel Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2003
I would use more pretzels and crush them finer, it seemed like a lot of butter in the crust, and it broke apart somewhat when I spread the cream cheese mixture on top. Also, there's no need to chill the jello mixture, the frozen strawberries cooled it down quickly, and you want to put it on top while it is still pourable, of the top looks like strawberry jam instead of jello. I still tasted wonderful though, everyone at work loved it. I used a bag of mixed berries instead of strawberries and used raspberry jello since that's what I had in the house. GREAT!

Awesomely Easy Sesame Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
Very quick and easy although I did tweek it a bit (of course). I brushed the asparagus with olive oil and then sprinkled it with a little salt, regular (untoasted) sesame seeds (didn't want to take the time to toast them, I know, busy, busy, busy), and a little lemon juice. Then I grilled them in a preheated grill over indirect heat. It took about 4 minutes. Served this with grilled salmon and grilled potato wedges - awesome!

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
I substituted Carb Countdown 2% milk for the soy milk, omitted the sugar and vanilla and added 1 tsp honey instead. I also used 1/2 frozen strawberries and 1/2 frozen peaches and ground the oatmeal first. My husband & I really liked this recipe, and will have this in the AM when time is short. Very filling, and I can see experimenting with the fruit and liquid.

Mongolian Strawberry-Orange Juice Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
Good base smoothie recipe, although I made quite a few changes: I doubled the recipe, using 2C orange juice, 1C each frozen strawberries and peaches (no sugar added), 1T honey instead of the sugar, omitted the ice cubes, and added 1 banana. Blended up easily, and was slightly tart. Think it would be good with yogurt or ice cream added, or with other fruits too (kiwi, blue berries, etc.) Wonderful recipe to experiment with! Thanks!

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
My first attempt at bagels and they came out great! I followed some other reviewers and added 1/4 of a cup more water to the bread machine, replaced 1 cup of bread flour with whole wheat, and let the bagels rise for 30 mins after shaping them. I definitely will not be winning any bagel shaping contests, but they taste great!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
I know this recipe doesn't need any more reviews, but I just HAD to say something! These biscuits were the best I've tried, and so easy. I did end up using an entire cup of milk, but that may be because I live in a dry climate. Also, I used unsalted butter instead of shortening. The dough was easy to handle, I did not roll it out, but patted it and used a juice glass dipped in flour to cut them. I also baked them in a cast iron skillet so they were touching each other. Thank you JP!

Super Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Wonderful recipe to experiment with - I used leftover turkey from Christmas, and 1 15oz can each of chicken broth and water instead of the 4 cups of water. Also, I did not have all of the veggie ingredients, so I used what I had in the freezer: mixed veggies for soup that included okra, corn, green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, and lima beans among other things. I used 1 can each of cream of chicken and cream of celery (to make up for the lack of actualy celery), and also added 1/2 cup of brown rice and some Old Bay Seasoning. I cooked and stirred until the rice was done, adding almost a second can of chicken broth to keep it soup-like. Had the leftovers the next day in homemade turkey pot pie (suggested by another reviewer) Thank you for this really good recipe for me to play with!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
This is THE ABSOLUTE BEST way to prepare brussels sprouts! I used frozen baby sprouts that I steamed in the microwave for 2 minutes first, then sliced in half. I roasted them in a mixture of olive oil and butter in a cast iron skillet. No extra spices, just a little salt and pepper - I will never make them any other way.

Sausage Gravy I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
This was very good and very easy to make - I used only 2 cups of milk and 1/2 lb of sausage to scale it down a bit and it was enough gravy for me and my husband to have it for two breakfasts in a row. Also, I did not have bacon grease so I used 2 tbsp of butter and I did not add any salt (sausage was salty enough for our taste). We made it to go over JP's Big Daddy biscuits (from this site) and it made for a great breakfast. I will never buy the gravy mix from the store again. :)

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I used half of the butter called for and this dish was still very good. I followed others advice and uncovered the dish for the last 15 min of baking and used only 2 eggs. I did rub some pork chop spice on the chops before I coated them in the egg and cracker mix, and also seasoned the chops themselves after they were coated rather then seasoning the cracker mix. I baked them along with the roasted brussels sprouts (also from this site), and they were both ready at the same time. The pork chops were nice and juicy - I can't see why I would make them any other way from now on! **** UPDATE: I made these without eggs completely (I had run out) and they were still great. Since the recipe calls for baking instead of frying, the topping stayed on even without the eggs.

Goat Cheese Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
I combined this recipe and the one listed for Wrapped Salmon. I used squares of puff pastry dough to wrap the salmon fillets after stuffing them with the feta cheese. Used garlic and herb cheese and omitted the mayo topping. Made a quick sauce using: 1/2 c mayo and 1/2 c sour cream and added dill weed, salt and pepper to taste. Thank you for the idea to use feta cheese - its my favorite way to prepare salmon now! :)

Wrapped Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
I really liked this recipe and made it exactly as stated the first time. The second time, I used puff pastry dough and it came out great - without having to mess with phyllo dough (which I hate). I combined this recipe with the Goat Cheese Recipe from the site, stuffed the fillets with garlic and herb feta cheese before wrapping them. Wonderful recipe, and fun to experiment with using different seasonings and spices. Thanks!

Snow on the Mountain Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
This is a great way to prepare green beans - even canned ones. I wanted to try this recipe but didn't have fresh green beans, so I substituted canned beans. Just make sure the butter and oil is really hot in the pan, then add the beans, stirring as you add the seasonings. I used garlic and herb feta cheese, and also added a dash of garlic powder - mmmmm! I can't wait to try this recipe with freash beans! Thank you for a great recipe!

Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I have been looking at this recipe (and others like it) for some time. My biggest fear was that the sauce would taste overwhelmingly like the cream soup that is used. I usually avoid recipes that call for too much cream soup because of this. That being said, this recipe is AWESOME. I sauted the onion and garlic with a can of chopped mushrooms in 1 tbsp of butter - putting the garlic in last and removing from the heat since garlic doesn't need much to soften it. I set it aside and browned the chops (seasoned with a little garlic powder and pepper) in the same pan - just a couple of minutes on each side to brown. I transferred the chops to a glass baking pan, topped with the sauted veggies, then topped that with ONE can of cream of mushroom soup. Covered and baked at the temperature stated. My chops took less time to cook, but my oven may be off. Absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe! I will definately be making these again!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
This is the best way to prepare cauliflower - fresh or frozen. I skipped greasing the pan first, and also putting the ingredients in a bag. I just placed the cauliflower in the pan and drizzled the oil and garlic over top and stirred to coat. I covered and baked for 20 min, then did the broiling step. I also added two strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled with the cheese. Thank you for this recipe!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
Best crustless quiche I've ever made! Thanks for the recipe. UPDATE: This time I used about 3 oz of fresh spinach instead of the frozen, added 1/2 cup of milk to the egg mixture, and used about 2 C of cheese. Even better!

Green Bean and Bacon Saute

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
I made this with canned green beans, and it was still very good. I want to try it with fresh next time. I did make a few changes: I sauted 1 can of mushrooms in 1 tbsp of butter until browned, then I added a few sliced onions and 1 can of beans. I sauted on medium heat until slightly browned, then added the cooked crumbled bacon and 1/2 tsp of fresh garlic. I did not use any bacon grease to cook the beans. Thanks for a very good recipe for me to experiment with. :)

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
Very good flavor, I used slightly different spices-lemon pepper and Old Bay-since that is what I had on hand. I also think I will use less butter next time since there was a lot in the pan when it was done. Notice I said next time though LOL - I will definitely make this again.
