Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Wow! This is sooooo good :)...I did make a few changes based on past experience and feedback. First I didn't have a ham bone so I bought some smoked pork necks. I put them into the pot with some celery, carrot and onion chunks. I just covered it with about 6 cups of water and added 1 can chicken broth and 2 large chicken bouillion cubes. Then I threw in 3 bay leaves and left it to simmer for about 4 hours. Next I let it cool. Then I took out the pork necks and took off the bit of meat that were there and put them into a container. I strained out the rest of the vegetables and put the stock and ham bits (in another container) into the fridge for the night. In the morning I skimmed off the fat. Then I cut up celery, carrots and onion into fine pieces and placed them in a pan to cook lightly in olive oil before adding to the stock. When they had softened, I added them and the bits of ham to the soup along with the split peas (I did not soak them first). I added 2 more bay leaves and a pinch of marjoram. I let this simmer for about 4 hours stiring now and then and adding water as needed. WOW this was soo good!!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
This was very good. I doubled the sauce as others suggested and I am glad I did. Otherwise I wouldn't have had enought sauce for the noodles I served with it. I sauted the onion for a couple of minutes in olive oil and then added fresh sliced mushrooms and about 2t of minced garlic and sauted for another 3 minutes or so. After placing the pork chops in a baking dish, I put the mushrooms and onions on top and then covered with the mushroom/wine sauce.

Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
This was very good! I followed the recipe except I increased the spices. I like food with a bit more kick. I doubled the cumin and added 3/4 t red pepper instead of 1/4 t. I also added 1/2 c sweet onion to the beef when I was browning the meat.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
This soup was really good. I did make a few changes. First I used 1/2 pound more sausage. I also substituted 2 - 14.5oz cans diced tomatoes for the 4 fresh tomatoes. One can was plain and one can was seasoned with oregano and basil. I also increased the dried oregano to 1 teaspoon and added 1/2 t onion powder.

Cucumber Slices With Dill

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
I have made this salad 3 times now. Each time I made a little change and it was still great. It is good as it is written. I also tried it with 1/4 c rice vinegar and 1/4 cup white vinegar. My husband liked it this way better because it had a milder vinegar taste. I also made it with Splenda as someone suggested and it was good that way too. Something else that makes it even better is to add fresh dill rather than dried.

Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
Yum..YUM!! This was so good :) I made a few changes based on the feedback I read. First of all I used pre-cooked shrimp (med-large size). I soaked them in water with lemon juiced until I was ready to use them. While they were soaking, I melted 1/4 c butter and sauted 1 med size portabella mushroom in the butter. To this I added 2 times the amount of garlic (fresh minced), 3/4 c white wine, 1/4 c lemon juice and 1/4 cup half and half. I then added the cooked shrimp (be careful to not over cook the shrimp). After about 2 minutes, I added a bit of dried parsley and 1/4+ cup parm. cheese. I then mixed it with the pasta. Wow!! I really liked this. The sauce was a little thin, but we used a spoon to make sure we had sauce with every bite.

Throw Together Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
I made a few changes to this recipe based on others' feedback and it came out great. We decided to use it as a filling for whole wheat tortillas rather than a casserole. It was so good. Here are the changes I made. I used black beans rather than kidney. I used rice rather than noodles. (I just didn't think mexican food should be made with noodles.) I used cooked white rice which I made ahead with 3 cups of water and 1 1/2 cups of rice. Instead of the taco sauce and tomato sauce. I used 1 can hot enchilada sauce, 1 can hot rotel and 1-4oz can of mild roasted green chilis. This gave it a nice spicy kick. If you are not a fan of spicy foods, I would use mild Rotel rather than hot. We like things spicy!! I baked this as stated. We then put it into warmed tortilla shells with a Mexican cheese blend and sour cream. YUM!! This recipe makes a lot so I froze some for another meal. I hope it is as good after it as been frozen as it was last night.

Italian Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This was quick and easy to make. The only thing I didn't care for was the amount of red pepper in it. I cut it in half but it was still too much. I use it a lot in my omlets to flavor the eggs and the pepper was too strong. This would probably be fine in a more Italian type dish.

German Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This wasn't bad. It was very different. I liked it more than my husband, but he is not a big sauerkraut fan and I am. I made a couple of changes based on others' feedback. I used 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 cup 2% milk rather than 2 cups of milk. I also used wide noodles rather than lasagna noodles and I used 1/2 swiss cheese and 1/2 mozzerella.

Baked Flounder

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This was good but not quite 5 star. I used flounder. Next time I make this, I think I am going to saute the mushrooms and green onions just a bit. They were too crunchy for my liking. Maybe that will make it a 5 star recipe!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This is wonderful!! Like many of you, I did make a few changes based on others' suggestions. I replaced the tomato juice and 29oz can of tomatoes with 1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes with Jalapeno and 1 14.5 oz can diced with mexican spices. I also added 2-15oz cans tomato sauce. I used 2 cans pinto beans rather than red beans (that is what I had on hand) and I added 1-4oz can fire roasted hot chiles and 1/4 t red pepper (we like our food spicy). Everything else I did the same except I cooked it all in the crockpot while I was at work! Leftovers freeze up GREAT!
