Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This is a good salad, but it really needs more ingredients for added texture and interest. I will make this again with water chestnuts and mandarin oranges.

My Country Style Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
I don't usually enjoy the consistency/toughness of cube steaks, but decided to try this recipe because of the many high ratings. This is the first time I have ever made cube steaks at home and I am very glad I tried it. These were surprisingly tender and very tasty! I followed the recipe with two small changes: 1) substituted minced garlic for the garlic salt and 2) omitted the salt (to taste). I will definitely be making this again. Thank you for the first cube steak recipe I actually enjoy!

Turkey Garbanzo Bean and Kale Soup with Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This was very good and easy to make. The one thing I will change is to make only 6 to 8 ounces of pasta; 16 ounces of pasta is WAAAY too much for this recipe!

Ground Beef Zucchini Skillet

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
A good basic recipe, but it was so bland that I had to triple the spices plus add garlic powder, worchestershire, a beef bouillon cube, and a can of tomato paste. Used half a diced onion instead of the dried minced onion, and added fresh garlic. Added a cup of cooked ditalini pasta at the end to round it out. My result was pretty good, but I can't rate this recipe higher than 3 stars due to the extensive additions I had to make in order to give it some flavor.

Foolproof Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
Pretty good. Flavor was good, but I would choose a more tender cut of meat.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
Pretty good, but the balsamic was somewhat overpowering after several bites. Would be good to offset the vinegar flavor by having a bland or creamy side dish to serve with it, such as potatoes.

Pork Picadillo

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
Pretty good. If I make this again I would add some seasonings to the pork. A flavor packet or two from Ramen noodles would really perk it up. I would also eliminate the raisins, as having them in the mix was more of an oddity than a flavor enhancer.

Chicken Nachos

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
A bit bland for my tastes. The cheese would be much better if it were saucy, like regular nachos.

Doreen's Ham Slices on the Grill

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
Delicious way to do ham on the grill. I have made this before without the lemon juice and a bit less horseradish and the sauce stuck to the ham more like a glaze. Yum!

Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
The flavor was pretty good, but the consistency was much too watery. If I make this again I would add more garlic and a lot less water (maybe substitute some other liquid).

Oven-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Easy and good flavor. My suggestions: Leave the skins on and cut into lengthwise potato fingers. Eliminate the oil and just spray a cookie sheet with PAM before placing potato fingers (skin side down) on the cookie sheet.

Easy Pork Chop Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This recipe is easy and tasty. It is very high in sodium though, so not recommended for those on a low-sodium diet. Next time I will reduce the heavy salt flavor by using low-sodium soup and only half the onion soup mix. Also, the title is misleading because this really isn't a casserole.

Warm Greek Pita Sandwiches With Turkey and Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I used diced roasted turkey breast and these came out great. The sauce would have been better if I had *grated* the cucumber as the recipe suggests, instead of finely chopping it. We'll be having this one again.

Bacon, Potato, and Egg Taco Ole

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Quick and easy - just what I needed! I used diced ham instead of bacon and it turned out great.

Albondigas

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
Tasty, but a bit too spicy with medium salsa. Next time I'll try 1/2 mild salsa and 1/2 medium salsa. I substituted beef broth for the water and 1 pound ground bison for the beef. Also used only 1/2 as much onion as called for. Easy, balanced meal to make with items I usually have on hand. We'll be having this one again.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
Easy last-minute entree. Flavor and presentation are sophisticated enough to serve to company. I followed the recipe except that I used Miracle Whip instead of mayo and eliminated the lemon juice. I also added a few other spices as suggested by other reviewers. Served with baked potatoes and frozen peas. My young, somewhat-picky son ate every bite of his fish! I'll be making this one again.

Ground Beef Curly Noodle

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
I wasn't sure about this recipe, but it was easy to make and turned out great. The kids really ate it up, and Mom (that's me) really liked it, too. I changed a couple of things: used ground bison instead of ground beef, and used 2 packages of noodles with 1 flavor packet. Add beef or veg broth if you need more liquid.
