Ed Zieba's Famous Family Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
These are INSANE! They come out perfect every single time. I can not even imagine how anyone had trouble with dry chops unless you did not follow the instructions. The only extra "tips" that do not change this recipe one bit is that - I use a Dutch Oven to cook them in, dry my chops off with a paper towel before seasoning them, and season them liberally with garlic and onion powder, season salt and pepper. Everyone in my family loves these! Even if you hate pork chops try these!!

Oh So Tender Brisket

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
My family thought this was one of the best meals! I added 2 TBSP of brown sugar to the onion soup mix. Added 1 can of cream of onion soup directly on top of the brisket and topped with cut red potatoes and onions! In 6 hours we had dinner ready! AMAZING!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
We love shepherds pie and the addition of the mashed carrots as a layer was wonderful! I did have a hard time mashing the carrots and I had them boiling for 30 minutes! We also like the meat to have a good gracy so I added a jar of fat free Heinz beef gravy. I also added corn and peas in the the meat as I like to get in as many vegetables as I can Overall this was great and I will make again. I just have to figure out how to boil carrots right!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
WOW! I was so impressed with how easy these were to make and how wonderful they came out. My husband HATES mayo and I was worried he would pick up the taste but he thought they were fantastic too! Don't change a thing! This one is a sure keeper!

Puerto Rican Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
This is a fantastic meal! Whenever I ask my husband what he would like for dinner...this is in his top 5 for sure! I am very liberal with the garlic and spices. I always add just a touch of hot pepper sauce! Highly recommended! I like to serve this with a roasted potatoes and carrots!

Pasta With Spinach Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
First, if you are not a spinach fan don't make this, that has to be why anyone would give it a low star rating. It is AWESOME!!! I didn't use any meat in it. I used a canned spinach (its what I had) and instead of sour cream I used evaporated milk. I also used fat free cream of celery soup. I think this is such a great dish. Don't limit it to pasta. I served it as a side dish to my two girls (2&4) and they loved it! It tasted alot like the cream spinach they serve at Boston Market - one of my favorite things there! This would also be great on top of a chicken breast! Thank you so much for this recipe! A definate keeper!!!

Kielbasa and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2006
Fantastic! My husband and I loved this! I did use real butter instead of the oil for more flavor, only about 1 TBSP. I also used fresh chopped garlic and cooked it with my onion for a bit prior to adding the cabbage. I think it gave the cabbage a bit more flavor. I also only used a touch of cajun spice. If you are a "hunky" like me, try serving it over potato and cheese pierogies! This is a definate keeper!

Italian Sausage and Zucchini

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
WONDERFUL MEAL! I added red, yellow and orange peppers and did use marinara over the diced tomatoes. I also did it ahead of time and fried everything individually (my personal preference) I then put it in a 9 by 11 and baked it later for 30 minutes at 300. This is a definate keeper. Even my two year old loved it. Except for the sausage it is all veggies - so good for her too! Thanks so much!

Angela's Easy Breaded Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2005
AWESOME! Exactly what I was looking for! I needed a quick dinner for my 1 1/2 and 3 1/2 year old daughters and this was perfect! They really gobbled it up! I also think if you cut the chicken breasts into strips it would make a great party appetizer!!! I used balslamic vinegrette and the flavor was terrific and my chicken came out wonderfully moist! This is a definate keeper!

Hot Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2005
This is a GREAT potluck recipe to bring somewhere. I took it to my Mom's Club (about 50 moms) and it was a big success. Everyone was asking for the recipe. I am not sure why anyone wouldn't like it. It tastes exactly like a wonderful warm fruit pie without the crust. It is also actually pretty healthy! (Well, there is some sugar due to the canned fruit). The only thing I added was canned pears because I thought it would make a nice addition the other fruits. I really loved this recipe and would make again! I think it would go great over pancakes! If you are looking for a really unique recipe with great flavor try taking this to your next outing!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2005
AMAZING is the only word that describes how good this recipe is! My husband was a bit skeptical because he is not a Guiness fan and he ate about half of the roast! The only suggestion I have (and this has nothing to do with the recipe really) is that I used a very lean cut of corned beef. You don't need the extra fat because the Guiness and slow cooking makes it incredibly moist!! Thanks so much for this recipe! I made it for St Patty's Day but after looking through my recipes I think I am going to make it this weekend!!!

Uncle Bill's Sweet and Sour Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2005
GREAT! I was leary about trying to make my own sauce but I think it came out wonderfully! Thank you also for the tip of making the corn starch paste first, make the sauce come out very smooth with zero lumps! I can't wait to make this for my next party!

Crab Rangoon I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2003
This was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!! I made them for a Chinese New Year's party -- and they were a HIT! I don't think they were too salty at all. I did make a few changes though. I used green onion instead of cilantro. I used ground ginger instead of fresh. I also added garlic powder because I love garlic. And I used Louis Kemp instead of fresh crab meat. Also, I made these the night before and kept them refridgerated till I was ready to fry them...that worked out very nicely!!! If you like Crab Rangoon..I think you will LOVE this recipe!

Bourbon Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2001
WOW!! At first I was VERY worried because even though I like bourbon -- the original scent was very strong! But it came out PERFECT! It is my husbands new favorite meal (he's pretty picky) - he has been telling everyone about it! I did the suggestion of taking the sauce and adding corn starch for a gravy (yummy!) I then put the chicken over rice with brocolli with the gravy! Fantastic meal! Worth trying it out!

Fruity Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2001
This is such a fantastic lunch!! I love curry and have been looking for some easy recipes! I have found it!! I added grapes, red peppers and crushed almonds in mine....served with Pita bread! I will make this quite often. Light and refreshing! I can't believe their is no mayonaise in this. It tastes better than regular tuna salad! Thanks Sara!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2001
Great crockpot recipe!! I made a few minor changes that I suggest....I boiled my cabbage first. I've found it's always best to do that. I also added a can of diced tomatoes and used spaghetti sauce instead of tomatoe sauce. I also cooked my beef with a packet of onion soup mix and 1 tbsp of minced garlic! My mother still makes the BEST real Houlupkie (Stuffed Cabbage) but as a busy career woman -- this recipe works very well!!

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2001
This really reminds me of the Macaroni and Cheese my mom use to make from scratch!! I was very pleased with how it came out. My husband, who has really only had Kraft Mac & Cheese, couldn't believe how good homemade could be! Thanks for sharing this with us! I would definately make this again!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2001
My husband went CRAZY for this! I used the Pick of the Chicken pack, so I had breasts, wings and legs. I didn't have enough honey -- but it still came out perfect. It got a nice glaze and the skin was crispy and delicious!! I would cut back on the oil next time if I used the skinned chicken, was a bit too much grease but DELICIOUS! Do yourself a favor - get the ingredients and try this one out!!!!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2001
This is FANTASTIC!! The minor changes I made was to use a can of French Onion Soup instead of beef broth. I make slits in my roast and added about 6 cloves of garlic. I also added tons of red and green pepper and onions in the crock pot. (I love vegetables). The other thing I tried is when I pulled the beef out to shred I added 2 cups of cornstarch in the juice to make more of a gravy! My husband went crazy! He loved it!!! This would be great for a get-together. It makes quite a bit and people would love it!!
