Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
I added about 1-2 tbls. of honey to the mustard and let sit on the fish for about 20 minutes. Also for a GREAT crunchy texture I used Panko (japanese) bread crumbs. They can be found at many grocery stores. This got rave reviews for our Salmon Sunday dinner! My son's (age 14) had a friend over for dinner, not a big fish eater. He ate EVERY bite! Will make again.

Blueberry Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
DELICIOUS! I used fresh blueberries from my garden, added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white. Before adding my blueberries, I coated them in a small amount of flour to keep their shape when adding to the batter. I hand stirred in the berries. My batter was very thick! This bread rises high due to the amount of baking powder used, so make sure your oven racks are spaced apart well. I made 3 mini loaf pans and baked for 25-35 minutes. Very moist and flavorful!!! Will make again.

Festival-Style Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
Our family LOVES these sandwiches!!! I used sweet and mild sausage instead of hot. Used green pepper in place of red. I parboiled my sausages for 5 minutes on the stove top. My concern was that the inside would not be cooked in the middle and too brown on the outside. We always top ours with pizza or spaghetti sauce and a slice of mozzarella cheese! These are also great make in the slow cooker with a jar of red sauce.

Strawberry Freezer Jam

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
I've made this once before and it turned out on the runny side. This time I drained my crushed strawberries slightly and cut back on the water by a few tablespoons. While filling the jars it was already beginning to "set up". This recipe filled 11 four ounces jars. Nice way to have strawberries the entire year!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
This recipe was fantastic! I followed the recipe as stated except for scaling down to four servings. I used frozen whole chicken breasts put directly into the crockpot. After cooking on high for 1 1/2 hours, I added the additional can of soup to make more gravy, and continued to cook 1 1/2 more hours. Cut my generic biscuits into 6 triangular pieces and dropped into crock pot the last 30 minutes of cooking. Served over egg noodles. Will make again.

Caramel Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
These was AWESOME!! Rich, oooey and gooey! The only change I made to this recipe was to substitute ground walnuts in place of chopped pecans (for the kids). In my opinion, this recipe was more time consuming than many brownie recipes. Make sure to cool bars completely, cut into small pieces and have LOTS of milk nearby!! The only thing I will do differently next time is to melt the caramel in a glass bowl over pan with boiling water (double broiler effect). The caramel made a mess out of my pot. I had to put water in the pot and heat to get all the caramel out. However, the preparation and clean up was WORTH every bite!

Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
This was VERY good (but not to nice to look at)! I halved the recipe, eliminated the olives, used onion powder in place of minced onion. Since I was making this as an after school snack I decided to heat in the microwave on high for 4 minutes. It was so gooey and stringy! The only thing I noticed was it got cold fast and got very thick. I reheated a few times, but it didn't matter as it disappeared fast!! I served it with focaccia wedges.

Heavenly Hot Dog Sauce

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
My kids wanted hot dogs after school so I made two of the hot dog sauce recipes from the site to try out. It was decided that we liked the taste of this sauce best. The chili powder and a "pinch" of cayenne really add a nice flavor. This also takes great on nachos with melted shredded cheese. Will make again!

Carrie's Bruschetta Appetizer

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! The combination of the cream cheese and feta (I used a garlic/tomato flavored) and the fresh tomatoes really make this flavorful. I did not used to mozzarella cheese and didn't miss it. I ate three pieces myself! I will definitely make this recipe again.

The Best Bacon-Tomato Dip

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
I made this as a quick after school snack for the kids. I used onion powder in place of the chopped onions and added 1 teaspoon of dried ranch dressing mix. I served with crackers, tortilla chips, carrots and celery. It was a hit!

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
My family really liked this with additions!!! After reading the reviews, many stated this was a bit dry. I added 1/2 cup of cheese con queso dip with japelenos and 1/4 cup of sour cream. Will definitely make again.

Taco Salad II

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
I haven't had this dish in a long time and can't remember why! It's easy, a bit time consuming chopping veggies but very tasty. I followed the recipe except instead of putting raw onions in the salad I sauted in pan with meat mixture. I used the Taco Seasoning Mix recipe from this site in this recipe. My family loves ranch dressing so I used the No Mayo Ranch Dressing recipe to top the salad. Finally used a 10" tortilla to make a taco bowl. Sprayed a small glass pyrex bowl with a cooking spray and draped the tortilla over it and baked at 375 for 9 minutes. Nice presentation!

Walnut Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I'm always looking for something different to do with frozen bread dough, and cinnamon rolls was it today! I followed the recipe as stated except for cutting back on the brown sugar. The key to this cinnamon roll recipe is the heavy cream. It keeps the rolls moist and they don't dry out. I cut 1" pieces and was able to fill an 8x8 dish and a 9" pie plate. I let them rise for over 2 hours before baking. My kids ate them all (good thing its a saturday) and didn't even leave any for dad!!

Chrissy's Sweet 'n' Sour Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
I have tried several tomato salads on this site and this one is the best yet. It has the right ratio of oil, vinegar and sugar. I used the full amount of tomatoes but did halve the dressing and it was more than enough to cover the roma tomatoes. I used vidalia onion and added chopped cucumber.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
LOVE this soup! I used sage sausage and cut back on the red pepper flakes. Hubby's allergies were getting the best of him so he even ate a bowl (and he's not a soup eater)!

Potato Soup XI

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
Absolutely DELICIOUS!! I wanted a soup recipe which didn't use a store bought soup and I found this recipe. I followed the recipe as stated except I was out of milk. I subbed a 12 oz can (1 1/2 cup) evaporated milk in its place. To keep my flour from getting lumpy I used a small container and shook the flour and 1/2 cup of the milk together until dissolved. Added the milk to the mixture, then the flour/milk to the pan. Make sure you stir the mixture frequently so it does not burn in the bottom of the pan. The evaporated milk really gave the soup body and additional flavor!! It thickened up a little more than I like so I added an *additional* 1/2 cup of broth. I topped with diced ham instead of bacon.

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
Very GOOD! Easy, quick and healthy! I had to use the "green jarred" parmaesan cheese and it was good, but for sure next time I will use freshly grated parmesan. I served this with Braised Balsamic Chicken recipe. Will make again.
