Grandmas Bogie's Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
Great recipe! I had some leftover Romano cheese, used it instead of Parmesan. Loved it! Also, if you any leftover from the meal, keep it and pour spaghetti sauce on it, piece of cheese, and have wonderful Chicken Parmesan spaghetti!

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!

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!

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."

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
I love shrimp scampi, but never tried to make it. Always bought the frozen stuff in the grocery store. After trying this recipe, I will never buy it in frozen foods again! This was very easy. I didn't grill, instead, I stir fried in electric skillet. Used parsley herb instead of fresh, works just as well, but use less. Tried substituting fresh cilantro for the parsley, EVEN BETTER!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
I am not a fan of roma tomatoes. I used grape tomatoes. VERY GOOD! I don't think cherry tomatoes would work. One time I accidentally forgot the cilantro and I liked it just as well without the cilantro. I also found that it didn't matter between fresh garlic or garlic powder, but fresh is always better. I used my blender, just threw all ingredients in. TRY THIS ON A TRISCUIT CRACKER!!!!!!!!!

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
This recipe is the best I've ever had, and I'm not really a fan of deviled eggs. I'll eat them, but they aren't..... "special" to me. On this recipe, I have made it with the original ingredients YUMMY, and I have also tried it with shredded Romano cheese (I had some left over) instead of cheddar cheese. The cheddar is better, but the Romano will do in a pinch, just a different flavor.

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.

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!

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.

Hot Chocolate Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2013
An addendum to my review. I found that if you use high quality powdered milk, it's better. I bought Carnation, which was very fine powder, and it worked the best with this recipe. Buying cheap generic store brand powdered milk, which tends to be more granular, doesn't work as well.

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!
