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!

Ronaldo's Beef Carnitas

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This was good. I made a few changes based on others' feedback. I doubled the oregano and cumin. I added 1/2 t onion powder, 1 can HOT Roel and 1 beef bouillion cube. I put everything in the crock pot and let it cook for about 8 hours.

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This was very good Salisbury Steak. I did make a few changes based on the reviews I read. Here is what I did: In addition to the egg, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning, I added 1 t minced garlic, about 2 T finely chopped sweet onion and 1 t worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture. I replaced the crackers in the meat mixture with 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs (I just didn't have crackers). Then I mixed the meat in my Kitchen Aid mixer before shaping into 6 patties. As for the gravy I made the following changes: First I cooked 1/2 a sweet onion in the butter then I added fresh mushrooms. I used 1/2 of an 8oz pkg of sliced. It really needed more. Next time I will use all 8 ounces. To the mushrooms and onions I stired in 1 t minced garlic and then 3 1/2 T flour. To this I added 1 cup milk, 1 beef bouillion cube, 1 can swanson beef broth and 1 t worcestershire sauce. This was instead of the 3 cups of milk and 3 beef cubes. After this thickened a bit, I added 1 can Heathy Request Cream of Mushroom soup. Not wanting to overcok the gravy, I finished this up in the oven on 350 for 30 minutes. My husband really liked this!

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
YUM! This was very good. As others suggested, I added a little cream to the sauce. I also used the blender to mix the spices, tomatoes and cream. This chopped up the tomatoes and made the sauce smoother. In addition to the shrimp, I added a half pound of small scallopes. To make it just a bit healthier I used whole grain pasta.

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
My husband LOVED these! I thought they were good but a little rich. I made them as written with the exception of using sharp cheddar cheese (maybe that is why they were rich?). I also added a little minced garlic. I agree with those who said they were a bit salty. Next time I will omit the salt. I used extra lean ground beef and I had no problem with the burgers falling apart.

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
This was great!! I actually cooked the beans for about 4 hours before adding the meat. I did a quick soak of the beans (bring to a boil and then let the beans sit for about an hour) rather than soaking them overnight. The only thing my husband said it needed was twice as much meat!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
I made this just as written. My husband really liked it (He would have given it 5 star). I thought it was good but not a 5 star recipe. So, I gave it 4 stars

Crispy Herb Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
This was quite good. I did make a few changes to give it a bit more spice. Instead of dipping the chicken in butter, I dipped it in Ceaser salad dressing and then into the potato flakes to which I had added 1/2 c Italian cheese (instead of just parmesan), 1 t rosemary, 1 t oregano and 1 t granulated garlic.

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Yum!! These are so good and so easy. I doubled the recipe and mixed everything in my Kitchen Aid Mixer. I was out of Cajun seasoning so I used a recipe I found on this site to make my own Cajun seasoning. I also used Italian Bread crums rather than croutons. So fast and so easy. I baked the meat balls at 350 for 20 minutes and then broiled them on "low broil" for 5 minutes on each side. These are yummy even without sauce!

Dad's Hamburger Gravy

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
I rated this a 5 because it is good and it is so inexpensive and quick to make. My husband loves "stuff" with gravy and so he loved this. I made a half recipe using only 1 lb ground beef and halved everything else. I forgot to half the sage but it tasted fine. I added about a teaspoon of minced garlic and I used 2 beef bouillon cubes crushed in place of the chicken bouillon. We ate this over whole grain pasta noodles. Something different on a night I couldn't figure out what to make for dinner.

Korean Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
Yum! This was so good. I marinaded chicken thighs in a ziploc bag. I was planning to marinade it overnight but plans changed and it marinaded for 2 days. I was a bit worried that it might have over marinaded, but it was awesome!!

Wonderful Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
This had too much of a tomato flavor for my liking. It was like spaghetti. I served it with pasta. I like ribs with a barbeque flavor. I don't think I will make this again.

Wake-Up Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This was an easy tasty breakfast. My son and husband really liked it and it was a great way to use up left over ham from Christmas. I used diced frozen hashbrowns on the bottom and cooked them for 10 minutes before adding the cheese, eggs, and ham. I think next time I make it I will use sausage or bacon or maybe both!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
Cooking the ham with the honey glaze was very good. I changed the original recipe based on others' suggestions. I used 2/3 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup honey, and 1 t ground gloves for a 9 pound ham. I based it every 10 - 15 minutes. I raised the temperature to 425 for the last 10 minutes of baking rather than broiling it. I decided to use this ratio because I didn't want the ham to be too sweet. I was afraid if it was too sweet I wouldn't be able to use the leftovers in some of my recipes.

Country Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
My husband and son really liked this casserole. I liked it but thought I have had better breakfast casseroles. I made a couple of changes based on others' suggestions. I added about 1/4 c finely chopped onion and 1 T fresh minced garlic. I also increased the green onions to 3. I use 3/4 cup water and 3/4 cup milk and hashbrowns on the top rather than bread. I baked it as the recipe stated BUT it took nearly twice as long to bake. I think it might have cooked faster if I used a bigger pan making the casserole not as thick. I browned the top under the broiler before serving which added a little crunch to it. I think next time I would cook the potatoes in a fry pan first as someone suggested and then add them to the top about 1/2 way through the cooking.
