Pork Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
This was awesome! I made a minor change of adding a dash of Worcestershire sauce per another reviewer's recommendation. I used dried chives instead of fresh green onions, because that is what I had available. I used pork shoulder steaks. Fantastic! I'll use this recipe again.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
This was phenomenal! I made it as a last minute dish and I can't believe how good it is. I followed the recipes *almost* exactly. I doubled the sauce (I used one can of cream of mushroom and one can of cream of chicken), half&half instead of milk, and added a dash of Cheyenne pepper to the sauce. The only thing I *sort of* did differently was the sauce. I sautéed some diced green peppers and onions in the pan which I had used to brown the pork chops. So the pork chop seasoning and juice also became part of the sauce/gravy. Next I added the half&half and wine with about a table spoon of flour. I continuously stirred while I let it heat for maybe 3-5 minutes, then added the canned soups. Then I continuously stirred the mixture for maybe 5-7 minutes until it started to simmer. Lastly, I added maybe a tablespoon of Gravy Master and stirred that in. I poured all of the sauce over the pork chops. I cooked the pork chops for 30 minutes (as I was concocting the sauce,) then poured the sauce over them and cooked for another 30 minutes covered. I served with seasoned mashed potatoes topped with the pork gravy and some steamed mixed veggies. AMAZING!

Wild Rice Shrimp Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This was good. I used white rice cooked in chicken broth because it's what I had in the house. I also took the advice of some reviewers and used a tspn of Old Bay seasoning and some fresh cracked pepper corns. I followed everything else. I accidentally used salad croutons instead of stuffing croutons, which was my own error. They would have been better if I smashed them up. haha! I'll probably make this again.

Alaskan Cod and Shrimp with Fresh Tomato

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
Very good. I used haddock, catfish, and pre-cooked shrimp because that's what I had on hand. I used a large can of the diced tomatoes in basil, oregano, and garlic. I chopped up about 6-7 large cloves a garlic, browned them in olive oil in my Wok, added the haddock and catfish. Added the diced tomatoes and an additional small can of tomato sauce and 1tblspn of dried oregano. Then, I sprinkled about a tblspn of fresh cracked pepper into the mix. Once the fish was cooked through, I added a couple handfuls of fresh baby spinach (very exact measurement, I know!) Once that was wilted, I added the shrimp and about 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. I cooked about another 5 minutes to heat up the shrimp. Finally, I served it over spaghetti with fresh baked dinner rolls. Yum!

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
This was fantastic! I changed it a bit so I could use what I had on hand. Instead of scallops, I used diced tilapia. I also substituted shredded mozzarella for the Swiss cheese. And I used all dried herbs...I didn't have anything fresh in the fridge. Even though I adapted the recipe to what was in my house...it was still great! My boyfriend has requested that we make this again...which is unusual for him! Thanks!

Smoked Salmon Tortellini with Bechamel Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I really enjoyed this. I used fresh salmon fillets instead of smoked. I cooked them in the skillet with a tsp of olive oil before I began cooking the veggies. I cooked the salmon, set it aside, then followed the directions for cooking the vegetables in the skillet. I added much more veggies; a whole bag of mixed vegetables with corn, broccoli, red peppers, and cauliflower (it's all I had on hand.) I also substituted onion powder for real onion. I followed the rest of the recipe to a T. Very good!

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
This was AMAZING! I made minmal changes. I used 4 cups of h20 with 5 chicken boulion cubes instead of stock. Only about 1/4 lb of bacon instead of the full lb. I also added a can of sweet corn. Everything else was done perfectly to the recipe. This will definitely be made again!

Kabritu Stoba (Dutch Antilles Goat Stew)

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This was awesome! I followed the directions exactly up to Step 3: I poured all the contents into a crock pot and let it simmer on low for 4 hours. To adapt the recipe to the crock pot, I added 2 additional cups of water and a can of chicken broth. This was my first time trying goat...and I wasn't disappointed!

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
I followed the ingredients to a T. The only change I made was I used a sliced pork loin and "grilled" it on the stove using one of the square grilling pans. Maybe it's due to the way I cooked it, but I felt like the honey over powered the dijon. Next time I make this, I might increase the dijon a bit, or add some more while the meat it cooking. Either way, this was still very good, and it will definitely be served again.

Mom's Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Very flavorful. I doubled the sauce for a 5 lb bird, but still only used a single onion soup packet. I soaked the soup mix in a cup of warm water prior to adding it to the sauce. I also substituted plum jelly for apple jelly because it's what I had convenient in the house. I used Full Circle Tangy BBQ sauce and it was marvelous. I stuffed a half of sweet onion and a few cloves of garlic in the cavity.

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
These were a hit in my house! The only change I made was I used cheesecake instant pudding instead of vanilla (it's just what I had in the house.) Fabulous!

Corn and Cheddar Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Very good. Followed recipe exactly with the exception of not adding the wine because I didn't have any. Plus I used dried chives and parsley because that's all I had in the house.

Oven Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Very tasty. I used 3 eggs, 1/4 cup butter, and whole wheat flour, but followed everything else. I couldn't get mine to puff up though. Maybe I overmixed it? It was like the texture of french toast vs a bread pudding...which is what I liked. Either way, I'll definitely be making this again. The boyfriend enjoyed it too.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Nutmeg Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
These pancakes were wonderful! The only thing I "changed" was I doubled the cinnamon because I love cinnamon. :-D I didn't get to make the whipped cream because I didn't have any whipping cream readily available. I'll due the entire recipes next time. This is definitely a winner! Thank you!

Broccoli Sausage Breakfast Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
I didn't like this at all. I followed the directions exactly and it took over twice as long to bake. Even then, it wasn't very good. It was too quishy for me and needed some type of seasoning.

Chicken Pot Pie VI

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
Very good. I changed the recipe slightly. I made a double batch for 2 pot pies. I cut the chicken into strips then pan fried it in light olive oil and seasoned it with thyme and Italian seasoning before cutting it into cubes. I also don't care for the strong taste of onions, so I sliced up a medium size Leek and sautéed it with a tablespoon of butter and a dash of black pepper in a small sauce pan. For veggies I used potatoes and a can of sweet corn. I used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and 1 can of cream of mushroom. Lastly, I added about ½ cup of Almond Milk (or you could use any type of cow’s milk or even soy, I just has almond milk on hand) to make it a little creamier. I also added an additional teaspoon of thyme into the mixture. I used the 2 pie crusts, one of the bottom of the pan and one covering the mixture, brushed with beaten egg to make it golden brown. I kept the rest of the recipe the same with the cheeses, cooking times, etc. It was excellent.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Very good recipe! I changed it a little. I only did about 1/2 cup of butter. When I added the broth, I also added about 1 1/2 cups of addition hot water along with 1 chicken bouillon cube for extra favoring. I changed the heavy cream to fat-free half&half, and I added a half a bag of fresh spinach to the soup when there was about 15 minutes of cooking time remaining. I finished the recipe by using a potato-smasher to crush the potatoes and spinach. It came out fabulous!

Calamari

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I tried this recipe as described first. It was sub-par at best. I took a reviewer's advice and added some garlic powder to the flour mix. I didn't have any buttermilk on hand, so I used regular 2% milk. I dipped the calamari in milk, then the flour, then repeated again. So the calamari was dipped twice in milk and twice in flour. It gave it a nice thick (but not too thick) coating of batter. It also cooked to a perfect golden brown in the oil. I also changed veggie oil to corn oil because thats what I had on hand. Overall, with a few changes, it came out excellent!
