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.

Salmon and Shrimp Cakes from Chef Bubba

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
Not sure who the Chef Bubba is that submitted this recipe, but the recipe in Ladies Home Journal, June 2007, for Uncle Bubba's Crab Cakes shared by Earl "Bubba" Heirs, co-owner and chef of Uncle Bubba's Oyster House sounds much better. I say that only because they are fried in oil and butter. I think this recipe would be much better if fried in a pan instead of baked. Healthier baked, but they were to dry for me. As another reviewer said, 450 maybe is to hot.

French Spring Soup

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
Wanted to use some fresh asparagus that was given to me by a friend. Asparagus is not on my husband's favorite list. Coming across this recipe in my search, I thought it might work. It did. My husband thought it was very good. Of course I didn't have all of the ingredients. I didn't have leeks or spinach. I added fresh chives from the garden with the cream. I happen to have cream, but next time I think I will try EVAPORATED MILK as another reviewer said. I think the CREAM OF ASPARAGUS SOUP idea also sounds good, but that might be pushing it with my husband. If you like your soup thicker, there is a Reduced Fat Potato Soup found on this site that uses a package of orignal COUNTRY STYLE GRAVY MIX. It thickens potato soup real well that you may even have to add either a little milk or water to desired consistency. I do like creamed soups. I may try adding CHEESE also. There are so many possiblities. I also had to use instant brown rice. Ten minutes is long enough to cook the vegetables in this recipe as long as they are diced small, and it isn't going to hurt the rice if it is cooked longer than ten minutes. I agree that more rice could be used if desired as other reviewers stated. Very good recipe Luanne.

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.

Tuna Broccoli Roll Up Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I have a feeling that this recipe would be great following the recipe, but I used what was on hand. I substituted cooked flaked walleye for the tuna, fresh cooked broccoli for the frozen, wheat tortillas instead of flour, and mild salsa for the tomato. I see this as a very versatile recipe. Thanks PIDGE! It's a keeper.

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.

Octoberfest Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Crisp coating without the oil. Breaded all 4 pork chops but only made one for myself. I placed the remaining chops on a pan and put in the freezer. After they were froze I put in individual bags to freeze for a future meal. I could have baked all 4 and then froze them, but microwaves always seem to make coatings soggy.

Easy Sweet Potatoes with Kahlua

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
Made the recipe for 3 servings instead of 6. Called for 1/4 cup butter - used 3 tsps Butter Buds to cut fat and calories, 2 tsps water and 1 Tbsp butter. Next time I will use just Butter Buds and water. Called for 1/3 cup brown sugar - used only 2 Tbsp. It was more than sweet enough for me. To cut calories I will use only 1 Tbsp. next time. I liked the addition of Kahlua. Very tasty and would make again. My changes are only because I prefer to try and cut calories for myself. Didn't add raisins or pecans. Boyfriend also liked.

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.

Garlic-Cilantro Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
Considering the fact that I used Egg Beaters, fat free sour cream, no added salt, and no butter (used spray in pan), it helped put some flavor into those Egg Beaters. I still would prefer to have eggs with mushrooms, onions, red peppers and a little bacon, so for that reason I have to give this 4****.

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.

Pierogies and Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
Very good. Not sure what a Pierogie is. I used what I had on hand, Torteiloni filled with Ricotta & Spinach. Will make again.

Cheesy Fish Fillets with Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Followed recipe except I used walleye. Sauce is to thick and it lacked flavor. I hate to see food go to waste so I layered cooked brown rice in a casserole dish, put the leftovers on top. I sprinkled some Old Bay, Seasoned Salt,Onion Powder,dried oregano & cornflake crumbs. Better, but not wonderful.

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
Loved it!! Couldn't find creamy Italian dressing so I used Kraft Fat Free Peppercorn Ranch. I don't buy potato chips or dip because I am one that could sit down and eat the whole bag. I found some 1 oz. bags of Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper kettle cooked potato chips. I used one bag per filet (3 fillets) but didn't decrease the cheese. Bags crushed to 1/4 cup after eating one chip out of each bag. Using a rolling pin I crushed the chips right in the bag. I also put tin foil in the 9 x 13 pan for easy cleanup. Recipe is delicious as is, but I would like to try sprinkling a little garlic or onion powder on the filets. Thanks for the recipe Karena.

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.

Corned Beef Hash Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Have been making for years. Mom made these when I was a little kid. We use left over beef roast instead of corned beef. Today I used left over venison roast. I really don't measure since we have been making for years. The difference is that we grind the meat with a meat grinder and we use a egg. It is easier to shred, but I feel you get a more even texture and taste by grinding. If you don't want to mess your hands up by patting, use a measuring cup, put in fry pan and squash with a spatula. I prefer to use olive oil. If you want to freeze, spray a pan with cooking spray, make the patties by using the measuring cup, spatula method. When froze put into freeze bags. It also is a must with me that I use ketchup on top of the patty. I also put ketchup on top of corned beef hash and fried potatoes.

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.

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 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.
