Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
My hubby looked at me like I was crazy when I started making this! LOL We both really liked the finished product. I used butter flavored cooking spray because it seemed easier than spreading the oil around and also used garlic salt which we really liked! The only hint I can offer is to watch this very, very carefully toward the end of the cooking time because I think just thirty seconds past "crispy" is another term..."crumbly" Into tiny pieces that are messy to eat :o)

Spicy Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
To sum it all up, we have eaten two jars of these pickles in only six days!! Yum! I added sliced onions, extra red pepper, used more vinegar than the recipe callled for and used pickling salt instead of regular coarse salt. I also sliced the cucumbers instead of pickling them whole so we could use them on sandwiches too. They stayed SO crispy!!

Rolled Flank Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Wow, this is a great recipe! I was a little worried while it cooked because it smelled like nothing but soy sauce, but once it was done, my DH was using a spoon to get all the juices out of the baking dish! I used a little less EVOO and only marinated for two hours and I think that was plenty. I used about half the cheese called for and no red bell pepper (hate that stuff!) I took other reviewers advice and left out the bacon and secured it with toothpicks instead of twine. I thought all that olive oil kept it moist enough without adding more fat with bacon grease! I cooked it for 50 minutes at 350 degrees and it was a tiny bit on the dry side so watch your oven and don't go over the 145 internal temp recommended by the poster of this recipe. I can't wait to make this again, we loved it!

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
This was yummy! I added worcestershire and lemon juice as another reviewer suggested but I think I would leave out the lemon next time as it didn't seem to add anything to the taste. I would definitely recommend refrigerating the patties for at least an hour after forming to help them stick together. My husband had a heck of a time grilling them, but he said it was worth the trouble! We ate them on buns with mayo, tomato and lettuce for dinner and then again for lunch, Yum! :o)

Curried Quinoa

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
This was my first experience with quinoa and I'm very excited about how it turned out! Such a simple and yummy recipe that we really enjoyed! I followed the directions exactly except for using two tsp of regular chili powder since I didn't have ancho. I will definitely be making this recipe again and again, Thank you!

Pork Chops with Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
Wow, Love this recipe! I had four large chops that completely filled up the 9x13 pan so I used a whole box of stove top stuffing and sauteed onions, celery and portabello mushrooms to mix in. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly and baked for 45 minutes. My hubby couldn't get enough and said it rivaled his grandma's recipe!! Thanks so much for this awesome and easy way to make pork chops!

Tzatziki Sauce (Yogurt and Cucumber Dip)

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
Thanks SO much for this recipe!! I can't believe how authentic it tastes. I couldn't find my cheesecloth anywhere so I took others advice to use three coffee filters and it worked perfectly draining only an hour. I also added garlic salt and onion powder although I'm sure it would be just as good without. I also skipped the cucumber draining and just pressed it between two paper towels, it was perfect! I let it sit in the refrigerator for two hours before dinner and my DH went crazy over this sauce on the turkey gyro recipe from this site!!

Campbell's® Beef and Mushroom Dijon

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I really liked this recipe and it was perfect for using up leftover pot roast. I actually sauteed the mushrooms and onions, added the soup and dijon mustard and heated it all up then stirred in the bite sized pieces of already cooked chuck roast to serve. Next time, I would use a little less dijon than the recipe called for since the taste is very powerful, but I thought this was great for a potluck at church when served over rice. Thanks so much for an inexpensive and easy recipe!

Scalloped Oysters I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
All I can say is WOW! This was so delicious. I used exactly the amount of ritz and bread crumbs specified and only 3/4 one stick of butter instead of a whole stick and it was still plenty buttery. I also used clam juice (with a little more than the recipe called for since a few people said it was dry in their reviews) because we had steamed oysters the night before and I didn't have any oyster juice left. I also cooked it at 400 instead of 450 and it was Perfect at thirty minutes. We are thinking about adding sauteed onions next time for more texture. Try this, you won't be disappointed!!!

Greek-Style Rib Eye Steaks

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
All I can say is WOW! This recipe was super easy and so tasty too! I wanted to cook rib eyes without firing up the grill in winter and this was the perfect recipe for me! I didn't change much, just added garlic salt and onion powder and didn't use the olives because we don't like them. Other than that, everything the same. Don't forget the lemon juice! It really adds something that makes it taste very "Greek" :o)

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 26, 2011
I used fresh rosemary and I was afraid of it being too strong but next time I will know to add more! My hubby is a big fan of lots of flavor so once I realized this is a recipe with subtle flavors, I added garlic salt and greek seasoning to the chops while they were browning. This recipe is great, the wine and rosemary really give the pork chops a nice flavor and if you get thick chops and simmer them 15 to 20 minutes, they are really tender too! I added chopped onions and portabello mushrooms and turned the sauce into a gravy by adding cornstarch after everything was cooked. Next time, I will double the sauce because it was so yummy!! We enjoyed this very much, thanks.

Onion Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
I got this recipe from my Aunt recently and it really is simple and delicious. I doubled the recipe and I can't even describe what a hit this was with mine AND my hubby's family! The butter (use a real stick of butter not margarine!!) sour cream and parmesan cheese turns into the yummiest sauce you could imagine for vidalia onions! All I added was minced garlic, freshly ground sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Also, make sure to use a few extra crackers in the topping and mix the cracker crumbs with a little butter, Yum!

Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Great and easy recipe! I melted the butter in a glass dish in the oven as it preheated and also added the fresh minced garlic to the butter as well. After the butter was melted, I put the scallops in the dish and rolled them around before adding to a ziploc bag that had the breadcrumb/parmesan mixture in it. This worked out perfectly to evenly cover the scallops and save time too! I followed the recipe exactly except for baking for fifteen minutes then broiling for two more to make sure the top was crispy! This smelled Sooo good while baking and tasted great too! The squeeze of lemon juice on each serving was a perfect way to enhance these scallops. I can't wait to make them again. Thanks so much! Next time, I might add some Old Bay in place of the paprika as another reviewer suggested. I'm sure it will be a great variation too!

Daddy's Guacamole Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I only made a half recipe since there were only four of us eating this, but it disappeared quickly! Since hubby and I don't really like cottage cheese, I knew I'd have to take the suggestion of another reviewer and blend it in the magic bullet first. This was an excellent idea! I blended the cottage cheese and half the avocodo with the lemon juice and added real minced garlic. I then mashed up the other half of the avocado and added the onion and tomato for texture. We really enjoyed this recipe. I too added hot sauce, cumin and juice from the jar of jalapenos for extra flavor.

Piggy Wiggys

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
Ok, who doesn't love these? They are great any time of the year especially football season! Especially good served warm with mustard. Side note: I've found that one crescent can be cut in four strips so that one container of eight can wrap 32 cocktail sausages. Hope this helps! :-)

Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
TEN STARS!! This recipe could easily be served in a fine dining restaurant! I doubled the recipe for hubby and I and it's a very generous serving each. Such simple ingredients turn into an amazing dish that I would eat as a main course not just a side dish. I used half the olive oil and half the cheese called for (grated parmesan romano blend) to save quite a few calories and still get the same flavor. Because I cut out half of the salty cheese, I ground sea salt and fresh pepper to add just before I mixed in the spinach. Do Not leave out the lemon juice! It really sets of the flavors of this dish. Also, I used pine nuts since so many people recommended it and I'm so happy I did. I could eat this once a week for years to come and hubby agrees!

Shrimp Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
Absolutely amazing! Wow, what a simple and flavorful recipe. I used zesty italian and added minced garlic. I also used red bellpeppers rather than green because we Hate green peppers! Threading the vegetables on a separate skewer than the shrimp is a good idea because the vegetables need to cook much longer than the shrimp. All in all, a fantastic summer recipe. Thank you! FYI: the shrimp were fresh off a shrimpboat on the coast of Georgia so that could have had something to do with the outstanding flavor ;o) I love living on the coast!

Quinoa with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly except for leaving out the parmesan cheese since I planned to use this as a rice substitute to serve with portabello mushroom gravy. I figured that since gravy is fattening enough, I should try to make a more nutritious side dish than white rice! We really enjoyed this dish, but next time I will add garlic salt and onion powder for a boost in flavor since quinoa tends to be a little blah sometimes. Thanks for a great recipe, I will definitely make this again!

Apple Pie in a Jar Drink

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Love this! We usually make half a recipe since it's such a large amount. We use sugar to taste, but I believe we come close to the amount called for, maybe a little more! Sugar helps mask the flavor of Everclear. This is so yummy and the apple juice with cinnamon sticks smells awesome while cooking! Don't add the Everclear to the juice until the juice is completely cooled down after cooking.

Cranberry Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I really really liked these muffins! I used diced apples (not shredded) straight from a North Carolina orchard, 1/3 cup less sugar than called for and dried cranberries instead of fresh. I also didn't have any coriander so I left that out. These are so great and pretty healthy too! Don't bake them as long as the recipe says or they will be very dry!! I cooked for twenty minutes at 375. I might bake at 350 next time instead of 375 to see how well they turn out since that's the more standard temp for baking. Give these a try!!
