Dee's Roast Pork for Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
I am amending my review. When you read the recipe on here, it does say to include the green chilies. However, when I changed the recipe to 4 servings and printed it out, somehow the green chilies got omitted even though they are listed in "ingredients." This recipe works great in crock pot.

Baked Trout Saratoga

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
If you happen to have leftovers, this recipe tastes even better reheated in the microwave the next day! Be sure to reheat 5 minutes at 50% power for best results.

Super Scrambled Eggs Number One

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
I recommend holding off on the grated cheese until it's almost cooked in the skillet. When you add grated cheese to a beaten egg mixture, then try to "scramble" it, the cheese melts while cooking and prevents the eggs from "scrambling" nicely. I added chunks of compari tomatoes (Costco has these) and liked this combination. Also, the picture for this recipe is somewhat misleading. The picture looks like a layered "egg lasagne." The cooking process used in this recipe won't give you a layered "egg lasagne."

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I put all in a crock pot all day. Then, near serving time, I dumped all into an electric skillet and boiled out the water, and browned. YUMMY!

Flat Iron Steak with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I used dried parsley, I added it during the "vinegar reduction" phase. It works if you don't have fresh parsley. Also, I added onion slices. Cook them at the very last with the "vinegar reduction."

Wonderful Short Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
Instead of using tomato sauce, I used fresh tomatoes. I roasted the tomatoes (I used 5) at 350 for 30 minutes, this will put some "flavor" in the tomatoes. Then, you put the tomatoes in the blender and add a splash of Worcestershire sauce (in addition to what is already in the recipe). This was delicious! Of course, this greatly increases the "prep" time.

Dannon BLT Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
Instead of croutons, I used boiled egg. Then, I added dill weed to yogurt dressing. FANTASTIC! In another version, I took croutons out, and added cumin, chili powder, and Old Bay to the Yogurt. FANTASTIC!

Marinated Chuck Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I took a different approach. I did not marinate. Instead, I mixed the ingredients for the marinade, put it in a crock pot, put a chuck roast in the crock pot, and cooked for 5 hours. It was OUT OF THIS WORLD! Use a little flour to thicken the drippings to a gravy that will light up your tongue!

Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I had a bunch of red potatoes to use up, so I was interested in this recipe I had to make due with what I had. Didn't have any chives, but I put dried parsley and dried dill weed, GREAT! Also, I didn't have red onion, just used regular onion. Didn't have cheddar cheese, used shredded parmesean cheese. GREAT! I made it one other time with Cheddar cheese and it's much better. So, use cheddar cheese if you have it, but can use parmesan in a pinch. Oh, definitely use MORE bacon! I used three pieces.

Fried Steak with Peppercorn Gravy Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
If you don't have any gravy mix, you can make some with the following: 1/4 cup corn starch 1 Tablespoon Beef Boullion granules Pepper to taste garlic powder to taste Mix this all together, then follow the rest of the recipe. The gravy is TO DIE FOR! The small splash of white vinegar just makes it!

Alice's Sour Cream Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
Another review. I had some leftover cilantro. Chopped it up and added it to the sauce before cooking. WONDERFUL! And I agreee with cooking it in a pot or skillet as opposed to microwaving it.

Italian Peas

I do not like peas. But this recipe, using frozen peas, is making me eat a lot of peas, and I loved this recipe.

I omitted the shrimp. At the end of the baking, I poured a small amount of cream and stirred it in. GOOD!

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
I suck at making meatballs, and this recipe was so wonderful you can smell the garlic in the meatballs even after they are frozen! Can either bake them or fry them after making.

Salmon with Dill

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2013
Absolutely easy to make! I didn't have onion powder, I used garlic powder, a generous sprinkling on both sides. I also used a generous sprinkling of dill weed, both sides. Also, lots of butter. I went sparingly on the pepper, and I used ground pepper. I didn't use any salt at all, trying to cut down on salt. This is now my number 1 salmon recipe. Great with steamed asparagus. This recipe will encourage me to eat more salmon.

Crumbed Avocado Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
I felt that 2 eggs plus 3 egg yolks was a waste. So, instead of dipping the steak into a beaten "whole" egg, I used the three egg whites from the three egg yolks. Worked fine! I didn't have Dijon mustard, used Spicy Brown, it worked. I would love to try it with Dijon. This recipe is good, but a bit of a pain to make.

Moist Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
I suck at making bread. This recipe worked wonders in a bread machine. Just make the dough and let it rise in the bread machine. Then take it out and make the cinnamon rolls.

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
easy to make and good way to use up leftover rice. I tried a couple of modifications. I added frozen brocoli and some sliced fresh carrots. Also added a few shakes to taste of crushed red pepper seasoning. Also tried it with sesame oil instead of vegetable oil. Does give a slightly different flavor.
