Creamed Ham on Corn Bread

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
This recipe is a quick fast meal for a person that wants a fast meal on the table after a days work. Was it bad? No. Is it something I would serve company? No. Will I make it again? No. I would rather have Johnny cake; corn bread with maple syrup. It has got to be a really good recipe to give up Johnny cake for. That is only my opinion. Try it. You may like it for an easy fast meal to prepare.

Halibut with Cream Sauce

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
I thought it was very good. I liked the sauce. The only two things I did different was to add fresh chives from the garden, and I baked it in the oven at 400 for 23 minutes because our grill went kaput. While I thought it was good, my husband wasn't crazy about it. That's because he isn't a fan of any kind of baked fish. He likes more crunch. The next time I think I will put the sauce on the bottom, sprinkle with the cheese, dip the fish with an egg milk mixture, lay the fish on top of the sauce/cheese mixture, sprinkle or press bread crumbs mixed with Panko (Japanese style breading) into the fish. Bake. The last five minutes I will add French Fried Onions to the top. Maybe then it will be crunchy enough. I guess that means my husband is going to have to try it at least one more time. Thank you for the recipe Ginny.

Phyllo-Wrapped Halibut Fillets with Lemon Scallion Sauce

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
Excellent!!! Followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I will do next time is use more phyllo sheets and a smaller piece of of halibut (maybe about 3 oz). The recipe was excellent as is, but I can see myself experimenting with different spices and herbs. Thanks for the recipe JAYDA.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
I have to disagree with the majority. Husband went fishing so I thought I would try one for breakfast since I bought a package of three mushrooms. Good thing I did. I didn't like it at all, and I'm sure my husband of 36 years of wedded bliss would not have been very happy if I served one of these to him. I had not read any reviews and followed the recipe exactly. The vinegar taste did it in for me. Sorry Bob, not everybody likes the same thing.

Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
The flavor in this sandwich reminded me of the Four Cheese and Tomato Panini served at a local food chain restuarant. I prefer to use a crispy bun. I don't need to use the butter. If the bun isn't crispy enough I crisp it under the broiler first. The best bun I used was a tomato basil bun. It added flavor. I spread mayo on first and sprinkled garlic, oregano and basil. Italian seasoning would also work. On top of that I put roasted red peppers. I would have put a thin slice of tomato on next except I kept forgetting to buy one at the store. On the other half of the bun I use a mixture of white cheese such as provalone, mozzarella, and swiss, depending what I have on hand. I broil this and it turns out very tasty. Sometime I'm going to try sauteing mushrooms, onions, green peppers or red peppers with seasoned salt and adding that to the sandwich. Sounds good to me. Thanks for the recipe.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
Perfect!!! This is the taste I have been trying to find for years. I'm throwing out most of the coleslaw recipes that are cluttering my recipe box except for a few that are a little different, such as adding pineapple, apple, cheese, broccoli, bacon, etc. This is the one I will be making most of the time from now on. I buy the 16 oz. bag of coleslaw mix and make the full recipe for the 16 oz. bag. Since there is only two of us, I only make as much as we need for a meal, storing the sauce in a seperate container for future meals.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
My husband rated these burgers 3 stars and said, "Next time just make me a regular hamburger." I have to admit that these burgers were very moist (maybe to moist)and the taste was O.K., but it was the texture I didn't like. It's back to regular hamburgers for us, sprinkled with steak rub.

Leftover Scalloped Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
I love soup and this was a good way to use up leftover scalloped potatoes. Looking the recipe over again before I submitted my review I saw where CANUCKLEHEADMOM suggested using "Really Good Scalloped Potatoes." My suggestion was going to be that the next time I try this soup I was going to add Cheddar Cheese Soup instead of the Cheddar cheese, but after looking up the recipe I see that cheese soup was used in the original recipe of "Really Good Scalloped Potatoes." I think it would make good soup with any scalloped potatoes using a can of Cheddar Cheese Soup, and chicken broth. I would only use garlic powder to taste. As it says, "add, omit, experiment!" Thank you CANUCKLEHEADMOM for the idea of making soup out of leftover scalloped potatoes.

Broccoli and Cheese Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
Very good!!! I got this recipe out of the newspaper many years ago. It is one of my favorites. The calories listed on the recipe I have says 123 using fat free dressing. I have used the fat free, but I'm not sure if they make the fat free version or not any more. I have low fat in my refrigerator because the store I have been going to doesn't have fat free on the shelf. I like to add 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and use a red onion to give it more color. Thanks Marzetti for the great recipe.

Reduced Fat Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
***** + more. I followed the recipe exactly the first time. Very good. Thick soup. Want a thinner soup; add milk. If you don't have time and want a very fast potato soup, this is the recipe. Have more time and want a better tasting soup, use fresh potatoes. The second time I used fresh cubed potatoes, sliced baby carrots, one stalk celery and a little parsley. Excellent. This soup would be very good served in a bread bowl. It is a very good tasting basic recipe that you can make your own. The secret ingredient is the country gravy mix. If you don't like onion and red pepper for the original recipe, use hash browns without the onion and pepper for the fast version. Don't like carrots or celery for the fresh potato version, don't add. You could also add ham or cooked crumbled bacon at the end and warm through. I have been looking for a good potato soup without cheese for quite some time. I finally found it. If you want, you could add cheese to this soup also and it would be very good. Like I said, this is a very good basic soup that you can tweak to your own liking. Thank you Stephanie.

Quick Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
I asked my husband to rate this recipe. He rated it 3-1/2. I followed the recipe exactly except I baked it in the oven as others suggested. I wanted the coating to be crispy. I remember I once tried either a fish or pork chop recipe using mayo. Mayo is messy and I think that is why it doesn't get crispy. The sauce was good. The recipe does have possibilities of tweaking it more to my liking.

Bacon Wrapped Duck Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
My husband and I thought this recipe was only O.K. From other reviews, it sounded like the recipe was too salty. I didn't soak in salt water because of trying to cut down on salt, but soaked it in milk. Maybe the salt is needed for this recipe. I didn't find the Italian dressing to add much flavor. Maybe it needs to be marinated longer than 8 hours, or maybe a different brand of Italian dressing than the one I used is needed. We rather have beef, pork, chicken or seafood than duck or venison, but we have to eat it because my husband hunts. For someone that really likes wild duck this could be the recipe for them, but not for us. I rather fry or grill our duck breasts. Thank you anyways for the recipe.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
My husband and I love Spiced Chai, but only drink it occasionally because the brand I buy has 140 calories. With this recipe I was able to use Decaf tea, fat free creamer, sugar free French vanilla creamer, and substituted Splenda for the sugar. Very good. We will be drinking more spiced chai and less coffee. Thanks for the recipe.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
Very good!! Since there is only two of us, I canned the leftovers. I processed 4 quarts for 90 minutes at 10 pounds. Pints are 75 minutes at 10 pounds. Yesterday we had one of the canned quarts. We eat chili with out noodles, and we eat chili with noodles. Yesterday I added a little water to liquify it a bit and added noodles. Excellent both ways.
