Cream Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
This was great! I used light sour cream and light mayo and it was still great, however I added a little salt and for some reason I threw some dried parsley in too. (And I forgot the green onions until the last minute.) I mixed it up and topped some salmon filets with it, let it chill for 30 minutes and then cooked it. I served a little extra on the side as well and it was great, and there was a lot leftover which came in handy for dipping baby carrots while waiting for the salmon to cook :)

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Yum, this was fantastic! This couldn't have been any easier. I thought the coffee was weird but I didn't taste it. The first time I followed the recipe except I only used 3 1/2 pounds of pork and cooked it for six and a half hours. The second time I did two 2 1/2 pound pork shoulders and used a can of french onion soup and half a beer, left them in for almost ten hours, pulled the fat off, and used a whole 28 oz bottle of Sweet Baby Rays. Served on hamburger buns with cole slaw. Mmmm!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This was really good, but mine was nowhere near done after 40 minutes! Maybe my roasting pan was not big enough, as I used a deep pan and it was fairly full. After the first 40 minutes I added foil and left them in for another 20 minutes without stirring, then took the foil off and left them in another 10 minutes. The vegetables had good flavor but I think I will need some time to perfect this recipe. Only change was that I used garlic infused olive oil for extra flavor. I've also made this with sweet potatoes, yams, parnips, zucchini, brussels sprouts, shallots, and whole cloves of garlic - yum!

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
This is a good base recipe, but I made several modifications so they would taste more Mexican. I substituted sour cream for the mayo and used mild canned green chiles rather than green olives. I also added cilantro, garlic and chili pepper pastes (I just bought the small package of "Mexican" spice pastes in the produce section). With these changes I received some compliments, I took them to a Mexican fiesta at work. I bought the large burrito size tortillas but these still seemed like they came out a bit smaller than what I was expecting.

Easy Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
This is a great recipe for a quick and easy red velvet cake. I decided to make cupcakes last-minute for a friend's birthday and needed something special but not too labor-intensive and this was perfect. I used the whole 1 oz bottle of red food coloring and though the batter looked sort of pinkish, it baked up quite red (not as dark as a true red velvet cake though). I used cream cheese frosting (I use a plastic bag with a corner snipped out as a piping bag and swirl the frosting on; it looks fancy and is actually a lot faster, easier and less messy than frosting with a knife!) and also topped with some red sprinkles. I received a lot of compliments and the cupcakes themselves were soft and moist.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This is a wonderful recipe and relatively easy to make. The only modifications I made were to use 3 large chicken breasts, slice them lengthwise and stuff them with the folded ham and cheese slices. (I also omitted a small amount of the butter, and used Pinot Grigio for the wine.) The chicken cooked very well although some of the cheese did leak into the pan while they simmered, however it just made the cream sauce thicker and cheesier. Steamed broccoli is a perfect side dish topped with a little of the extra sauce :)

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
I am giving this recipe five stars for the cooking technique only since I used bottle barbecue sauce. I used three pounds of ribs and browned according to the instructions, then put in the slow cooker with two bottles of Sweet Baby Rays for about 8 hours. Finished them in the oven for 20 minutes at 375 with a little of the reserved bbq sauce. Super easy and delicious. Thanks for this recipe!

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I made this because my boyfriend said he'd never had it before. He loved it - he took two huge servings of it :) It was so quick - I left work at six and had dinner ready by seven (I love this method because baking is not required). My only modifications were to use canned peas (they were cheaper) and one can of cream of celery soup and one cream of chicken (I hate mushrooms). I think next time I will try it with a can of mixed veggies or cheddar cheese rather than American. This recipe is great as it is, but there is a lot you could do to personalize it and fit your taste. The best thing about this recipe is that it makes a ton - and ALL the ingredients only cost me $6.75. Wow!

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
This is a good recipe and my boyfriend liked it, I marinated at least two hours and double dredged, and cooked it all at once in two skillets. I served it with salad and my favorite side dish (Corn Casserole III on this website). Needs a lot of oil, I didn't use as much as called for (probably 1/3 or 1/2 cup in each pan), but my last batch burned because I used the pan twice and didn't add another couple glugs of oil.

Corn Casserole III

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
A wonderful recipe! I have been making this as a side dish for a few years and it is a family favorite. Always present at holiday dinners, a nice change from the same old stuffing. For an easy main dish add a small can of peas and diced carrots and some ground pork sausage. Yum!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Yum, I made this for the second time tonight and my date loved it! I did tweak it as follows: added a little chopped onion to the garlic and sausage, substituted raw pork breakfast sausage since I do not like Italian sausage, and I didn't have a can of crushed tomatoes so I used a jar of spaghetti sauce. Also used half and half in place of the heavy cream. And I probably used at least 2 to 3 tablespoons of the red pepper flakes -- it's supposed to be spicy!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I only gave this recipe 3 stars because I hard sort of a hard time with it. My only modification was to chop the onion. My potatoes came out pretty dry, but it may have been my fault. They just didn't seem very cheesy to me. If you want a delicious cheesy potato recipe that is simpler, try the Baked Potato Salad I recipe on this site.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
This truly is the best spanish rice, delicious AND easy! I don't think I will try any other recipes. The next day I went to Chevy's for lunch and I thought their spanish rice was salty and tasteless in comparison!

Baked Potato Salad I

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
A great recipe, however I did make a few modifications based on other reviews, and substituted green onions, cheddar cheese, and used 1/2c sour cream and 1/2c mayo. I over-boiled my potatoes though(or maybe I sliced them too thin) and they all fell apart, so rather than stir all the ingredients together, I combined all the wet ingredients, then layered half the broken potatoes in the pan and covered with half the cheese mixture, then did a second layer of potatoes and cheese mixture. The only thing I would change next time is double the sour cream and mayo (maybe because I used grated cheddar cheese, my mixture came out drier. I added an extra dollop of each but it was still not quite enough). The next morning I took some of the leftovers and fried them in oil and had some nice crispy, cheesy hash browns! This is a wonderful and simple recipe. I will definitely make this again. Much less difficult than potatoes au gratin and just as good!

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
Fantastic! I did tweak the recipe a bit after reading the other reviews. I doubled the crab and used a little less than one cup each of parmesan (as the recipe's author suggested) and mayo (I ran out). I used canned crab and it was perfect. I took it to Christmas and everyone loved it - even the kids. My boyfriend (who normally does not care for crab) asked why I never make this for dinner! Thanks for this recipe.

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
These were wonderful - although it was a little harder to tell when they were done, as they are already brown! I made them for a cookie donation my office participated in for Christmas and I love that these really stood out in a sea of plain old chocolate chip cookies. Thanks!

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
This was very good. The only modifications I made were to add more spices - I put in a little of everything, but mine needed salt (I didn't measure salt and pepper, so I might not have used a full tsp). I used thin-sliced chicken breasts and the meal was very fast and very simple. I will make this again, maybe with chicken fingers. One note: next time I might try dipping and dredging a few times to get a thicker breading.

Dan's Favorite Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This is a great recipe - we made it for dinner and it was very good! The only modifications we made were to use mozzarella rather than Swiss, only because we had it on hand (I imagine it would be even better with Swiss). We cooked the chicken on the Foreman grill and bought fully cooked bacon. Next time I will definitely not skimp on the condiments. All in all it was a fast and easy delicious meal!

Amazing Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Came out ok, but I made a few mistakes - purchased the ingredients from memory and ended up with half and half instead of heavy cream, so my sauce came out a bit gloppy once I added the cheese. Great flavor though, I omitted the pine nuts which I think was another mistake. I would definitely make this recipe again and try to get it right.

Shrimp with Pasta, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Artichokes and Basil Bacon Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
I thought this was great but my boyfriend gave it a two or three. I thought it was very satisfying and not too fattening, but his exact words were "not something I'd want again." Personally, I would recommend it, as I think this is a great way to enjoy whole wheat pasta.
