Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2013
Perfectly creamy, thick and rich potatoes. I used red potatoes since that is what I had on hand and left the skin on, I just hate peeling potatoes. Perfect match with our meatloaf, topped with a wonderful mushroom gravy, but boy these taters were good enough to eat plain. Thanks Cheryl, I was licking the pot clean.

Classic Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2013
I would suggest to everyone to watch the video on this recipe since the cooking instructions are different than the printed recipe. The cooking time is stated to reach a temp of 155°, and he states up to 40 more minutes or longer depending on the size of your loaf and pan you use. I heavily rely on a cooking thermometer when it comes to cooking meat in the oven. After the 50 minutes at 325°, my temperature was at 136, so I baked for 15 more minutes, it was then 157°, perfectly done in 1 hour 5 minutes. I always use a casserole dish with room on the sides in lieu of a loaf pan for meatloaf so the juices have some place to go instead of my oven floor. I only gave four stars, because although the flavor was close to excellent and certainly a very nice moist meatloaf, it just wasn't juicy like we're used to more like mushy moist, it had quite a different type of texture. We don't mind little chunks of veggies, and if you're one than needs to hide your veggies, this is your recipe. I think I prefer to very finely chop the veggies and give them a quick saute then add into the meat. The glaze was a bit strong on the mustard flavor even after I added in more ketchup. I left all the hot stuff out. We all liked it, but all three of my guys said they liked mine better.

Chef John's Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2013
Certainly easy, but even after 30 minutes just not as thick as we like our gravy, I had to thicken it with a bit of cornstarch, since I used all my broth, I went ahead and mixed the starch in with some Sherry wine, then it thickened up nicely. I used my own homemade stock so it had a nice flavor, and I liked the wine addition. Great over mashed potatoes.

Garlicky Tortellini Soup With Sausage, Tomatoes and Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
Wonderful delightful refreshing and so easy to make soup. I hope I don't upset, but I've wanted to make this soup for sometime, however I can't eat sausage, but I figured it would still be wonderful with ground beef, and it was just amazing. Other than that one major change I followed the recipe exactly, using my own homemade chicken broth. I had two bowls, and so did the hubs and son. Thanks Christina, this was a big hit tonight.

Touchdown Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
Amazing pizza, the whole family raved about it, especially the boys and their friends. I used regular pizza dough since the grocery had buy one get one free. Used rotisserie chicken to makes things even simpler. For my wing sauce I used Louisiana original wing sauce, which is pretty hot, and then for the second pizza used Louisiana honey mustard, not quite as hot. The blue cheese and mozzarella does give some nice creamy calm to the hot spice, and I was glad I had a thick crust too ;-). This really would make a great dish to take to football parties. My boys said to make this again on Monday night Football...Thanks Saveur for another great recipe.

Spicy Egg Salad English Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Boy Howdy...this cook never ceases to amaze me with her wonderful recipes. I didn't have any bacon, so my review is just for the egg salad on the muffin. I loved the addition of honey giving this egg salad a nice sweet and spicy combo of flavor. I topped with cilantro since I didn't have any scallions. Just add a nice piece of fruit and you have the perfect brunch. I'm surely going to buy some Canadian bacon and make these for the whole family. Thanks Occasional Cooker, another winning recipe.

Perfect Peach Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
Perfectly Peachy. I used a fresh orange instead of juice, and I didn't have soy milk, so used Greek yogurt thinned with fat free milk instead. Added in some nutmeg to give it a fall flavor after tasting it, was good without also. I think a handful of oats would be more filling, I'll try that next time.

Carole's Chili Mac

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
This was a really nice easy quick meal for one of those nights you don't really feel like cooking. I didn't have white kidney beans so used black eyed peas instead and whole wheat rotini noodles. I only had one green pepper so also put in a nice seeded jalapeno pepper. I made it all in one pot, made the noodles first and put in a strainer and then made the rest in the same pot, added the noodles back in. Topped with cheese, sour cream and creamy avocados. Filled our bellies and it is actually pretty healthy to boot.

Slow Cooker Philly Steak Sandwich Meat

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
It is a pleasure to be the first person to try and rate this recipe. I used a 3 lb. sirloin tip roast that was about 3.5 inches thick so I sliced it across the grain in about 1 Cm thick slices. I used all the spices except omitted the cumin, a personal preference. I didn't have beef bouillon cubes, but did have my own homemade beef broth, so used a cup of that with the beer (Yuengling ®) and whiskey, just enough to cover my meat. My slow cooker is a very old cooker and low for seven hours was perfect for tender moist meat with excellent flavor, you wouldn't even know beer was used. My husband used the au jus for dipping his sandwich in, sort of a french dip Philly steak. Easy to quick cook up the onions and peppers for some really great tasting sandwiches.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
We enjoyed this dish but as others stated the sauce is thin and needs to be thickened....other than that it is a great dish.

Spinach and Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
We enjoyed these enchiladas, like someone else said, Italian and Mexican all rolled up in one. I had fresh spinach so just waited until the end of the cooking and tossed handfuls in and just wilted it. I had to use half green and half red sauce on top since I accidentally picked up two different kinds. Thanks Duboo.

Buttermilk Ranch

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
I made this up after reading about it in Lela's blog. I thinned it down just a bit for our salad. It was great on our BBQ chicken salad. I think I'll try it as a dip for veggies also.

Pork Lo Mein

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
This was wonderful and we loved the sauce. I was leery it wasn't going to make enough for the dish, but with the juices of the vegetables it was perfect. Followed as directed, but used half red and green bell peppers. This would be good with chicken or shrimp also...and was the perfect amount for four of us... Thanks Kendra!

Chili Relleno Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
Wow, this was so very good, I increased mine a bit to accommodate a 10X15 pan since I needed 15 servings. Used three 10 oz. cans of chilies, about a 1 1/2 pounds of Colby-jack cheese(2 pounds is a lot of cheese). Both cans of the canned milk and added enough regular milk to make 2 cups, and increased the flour by one more tablespoon. I did add in some paprika, black pepper, garlic and onion powder shakes for added flavor. Still baked for 30 minutes to a perfectly golden brown fluffy casserole. I know I changed a bit, but wanted to let those that need a larger amount know how easy it is to increase the ingredients a bit and still come out with a great. Every body raved about this one at our party.

Pinto Beans With Mexican-Style Seasonings

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
I needed a double batch for a huge group, but only had a pound of dry black and dry pinto, so used both. I didn't double the bacon since I had homemade chicken broth in place of water. I used a 28oz can of Rotel, and tablespoon and half of the spices, and used fresh garlic cloves, and the flavor was wonderful. I cooked in the crock pot on high for 7 hours warm the last hour. It was a bit soupy still at the five hour mark and I was nervous, but they thickened up to a perfect consistency the last two hours. Everybody at our dinner party loved them, and when I fixed up leftover plates for everyone to take home, they all said to put some of those good beans on it.

Spinach Alfredo Sauce (Better than Olive Garden®)

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
A very quick and easy Alfredo sauce, was a tad thin for my liking, so I added in more cream cheese and a bit more Parmesan to thicken it up. I used fresh spinach and it worked fine, cooked down nicely, you need a lot, I used the whole 9 ounce bag of it. We grilled chicken and cut it into bite sized pieces and served it all over fettuccine noodles. Was a great meal, better than Olive Garden.

The Munroe Melt

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
Made this for the recipe group selection of the week. We had no problem with soggy bread and we had some juicy tomatoes, maybe because we kept them under the meat and cheese. We also added onion slices and avocado wedges, broiled them too. I did sprinkle some oregano on the meat to give the Italian taste the cook was talking about, and of course some ground pepper. A nice quick easy summertime meal, they were very good and I'm sure we'll make them again.

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Everybody loved these delicious potatoes and they are a quick easy recipe. They did turn out just as the recipe stated crispy on the outside, yet creamy on the inside. I used red potatoes and doubled the batch since we had guest for dinner. Perfect side for grilled burgers. Thanks Bellepepper. Update: We tried this on the gas grill over indirect heat, used our rectangle stoneware, baked 40 minutes and didn't even need to turn them over. Keeps from heating the house up on hot days.
