Cool Cucumber Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
good base salad! I used 16 oz pasta cooked. NO water in the dressing- I used some olive oil instead, about 1/4 cup. Used dill instead of parsel, and put the vinegar, spices/herbs, sugar in a cup and used an immersion blender to mix it up as I drizzled in the oil. I used scallion instead of onion, and added some freshly grated carrot for color and some thinly sliced celery for additional crunch. really good, and the MUCH MUCH MUCH needed break from mayo based and italian dressing based pasta salads.

Herbed Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This was fantastic. I made 2 changes.. first i used brown sugar, and second.. i doubled the amount of the rub for the same sized roast(about 5 lbs). I stabbed the loin roast w/a fork all over.. drizzled w/olive oil as others suggested, and rubbed the roast down w/the spices. I 'marinated' mine for almost 2 days.. as I got called out the night i wanted to cook it. OH MY!! The flavor was divine!! A little sweet, a little salty, a little tangy.. just wonderful!!! I can't wait to try different blends of spices in the future.. perhaps more of an asian blend, then maybe more greek, then maybe more BBQ...

USMC SOS

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Really good! I made a few alterations. first, I used onion and garlic in browning the meat. worchesteshire sauce as others added too. the ratio of fat to flour in the roux didnt' work for me. I had globs of flour, not a smooth paste. tossed that and made it one to one ratio. that worked great. I used about 3/4 of the can of evap milk to the 1 cup beef broth, added some dill to the whole thing, and served over pasta. the kiddos gobbled it up! the hub raved.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I will NEVER use canned crud again!!! I've made this twice now.. once exactly as written w/ground beef, and it was huge huge hit! my picky 5yr old raved.. and ate an entire sandwhich! that's HUGE for her!! the second time I made it, I used the sauce recipe as is(except doubled the recipe), and put it over shredded cooked turkey breast meat that I had leftover. Put the sauce, the turkey meat and some diced onions in a crock pot, mixed it all up well, and set to low until it just started to bubble. Turned it to warm until I was ready to serve. Again.. a huge huge hit!!! This will be put into regular rotation in my house now.. be it w/ground beef as tradtional sloppy joes, or shredded beef, pork, chicken or turkey as a sort of pulled meat bbq sandwhich. YUM!!

Cloggers' Delight Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
used prepacked slaw mix. also put the seasoning packets in the dressing. I didn't use all the oil called for either.. i just add oil as I whisked the other ingredients, stopping to taste.. I can't say how much I did use in the end. NOTE: the green onions are the KEY in this recipe if you ask me.. I made it the first time w/out any, as i didn't have any and needed to use the pkg'd slaw up fast.. it was ok, but missing that certain zing. Next time, i made sure i had green onions, and that made all the difference!!! ps- oriental flavored spice packets made the best tasting dressing...

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
the taste was 5 Star all the way.. but even after following all the suggestions for rolling, my cake still split, didn't roll very tight, etc. again though.. the taste was FABULOUS and far outweighed the looks! I'm sure it's all in my technique, and not the fault of the recipe.

Pasta e Fagioli III

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
i made this in the crock pot. and used kidney and navy beans from a can, as that's all I had in the cupboard and needed to do something w/the ham bone! This is very very good.. I undercooked the macaroni just a titch.. knowing that I was going to freeze and reheat individual servings. This way the pasta comes out ok. I always add more garlic and herbs then most recipes call for.. same here. I also added just a dash of red pepper flakes for a little zippy heat. very very good soup base recipe!!!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
this is a very good sugar cookie base. i don't think i've ever eaten a snickerdoodle before, so I can't rate this against any other.. I just know that w/out the adjustments i made, this would have been a great sugar cookie rolled in cinn/sugar.. but rather bland. I used all butter, baked for 8mins as suggested, and added a bag of cinnammon chips that i had on hand. these came out very good, hubby loves em. I'm going to try the recipe and add M&M's, sans cinn/sugar, just like bakeries do.

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2008
I made it following the suggestions of cutting in the cream cheese and butter into the cake mix. the topping was to die for that way!! however, i scaled down the recipe a bunch, and the peaches/sauce was very very watery. Next time i make it, even full sized, i don't think i'll use all that much water. i also didnt measure the cinnamon. I like cinnamon, so i just plopped a bunch in. I also added double strength vanilla to the peaches. Very easy to do, even w/fresh peaches! Mine weren't all that ripe, so they held up very well in the baking process and weren't turned to mush.

Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Gal-Bi)

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
this was really good. my husband loved it! I didnt have time to marinate the ribs as indicated, and it still came out great! i also ran out of brown sugar, so i substitued some molasses. I can't wait to make this again so i can marinate the meat for more flavor. I also crock potted it for about 6-7 hours on low. easy and yummy! I've also used this marinade on pork roast in the crock pot.. melt in your mouth goodness!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
Great recipe! I've made it with ground beef, shredded left over pot roast and just made it w/leftover shredded pork roast. I've also used enchilada sauce instead of the taco sauce..always a family pleaser!!!

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
The fam loved it!! i used a boston butt roast instead of a loin roast and it came out falling apart tender. the flavor was fabulous. I doubled the sauce recipe, to make sure to cover the roast in the crock pot. I also used balsamic vinegar in place of redwine vinegar. this will become a regular at my house! i've used this sauce on short ribs as well.. very very good!!

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
very good, w/a few tweaks. I added several shakes of tarragon and pepper. added extra chicken base(bouillion paste) to the water for the noodles as others did. I skipped over the cracker top, as my family loves crunchy tops to noodle casseroles. this is going into fairly regular rotation at my house!
