Red Snapper Livornese

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
I actually scored this recipe very high because it got the seal of approval from a picky husband as well as an 8 year old and 6 year old. I made the recipe just as written and it was amazingly easy and tasty. It was nice and light although still filling. I made it with rice and a side veggie and - voila, a nice balanced meal that everyone enjoyed.

Aunt Fannie's Dinner

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
This was surprisingly good but I only gave it 4 stars because, like many of the previous reviewers, I had to "spice" it up a bit. In addition to the seasoning that the recipe called for, I also added parsley, cajun seasoning (someone previously had added that and it sounded interesting), as well as a little bit of red pepper. Also, I cooked and added about 1 1/2 cups pasta (the 1/2 c. just didn't seem like enough). My 8 and 6 year olds loved it and even wanted seconds. My 4 year old ate it with minimal complaints (to know my 4 year old, that's a compliment). I love meals where all the food groups are represented all in 1 heaping scoopful.

Succotash

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This was my first venture with lima beans. The recipe was okay (hence the 3 stars) - not spectacular, not offensive. My lima beans got away from me a little bit as they simmered in the butter so some of them were bordering on the well-done side but all things considered, the recipe seemed to come out as it was supposed too. Because of the nutiousness of lima beans, I'll probably try them again, but next time, with a different recipe.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
Other than substituting the chili powder/cumin for taco seasoning and thickening it up with corn starch, I followed this recipe as written. It was very good - everyone, husband, 4, 6, 8 year olds, as well as an 8 year old neighbor, were full of compliments. The only negative is that my husband didn't care for the tortillas under the soup - didn't like the soggy chips. Easily remedied next time. Made a ton so hopefully it freezes well. This would be fantastic on a frigid winter's night. Yum!!

Baked Bar-be-Que Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
I actually did not care for the taste of my chicken but I still gave the recipe 4 stars because I think I used a yucky flavor b-b-q sauce. The recipe deserved the high rating though because the chicken was very juicy and fell off of the bone. Next time, I'll use a run-of-the-mill b-b-q flavor and not the special "gold" variety.

Incredibly Easy Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
True this is incredibly easy and quite tasty. I made it just as written (except for regular egg noodles in place of the frozen). It is comfort food at it's finest. The problem I'm finding with "comfort foods" is that they are very high in all that is bad for you. When you want the occassional nummy-food on that cold winter day, this would surely fit the bill. Not good for the weekly rotation though because of the fat, sodium, etc.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I don't know what possessed me at the farmer's stand to actually buy a yellow squash (not usually on my produce list). After getting it home, and reality set in that now I had to do something with it, I came across this recipe. Although my 6 and 8 year olds wouldn't touch it, my 4 year old (ironically my picky eater) and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Very good - amazingly good considering that it's primary ingredient was (ugh!) squash.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This was okay. I should've cut the potatoes smaller. I ended up doubling the sauce because it just didn't seem like enough while making it. Even with double the sauce, it wasn't quite a flavorful and I had hoped and expected. Maybe with more onion and like mentioned already, smaller potato pieces. Won't be putting it on the dinner rotation.

Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
I expected to like this a lot more than I did. Maybe I did something wrong but I had a difficult time not smashing my potatoes whenever I mixed the potato/sausage mixture while cooking. When done, I found there wasn't enough flavor (and we're not huge spice-people). I had already added onion and garlic as others had suggested, but also had to add garlic powder and seasoned salt. Again, maybe I did something wrong since so many others likes it but I won't be making it again.

Baked Spaghetti I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
Not fancy schmancy but a nice, filling, quick and easy weeknight meal. Everyone (husband, 8, 6, 4 year olds) ate it willingly so that's always a plus. I made it almost just as written (minus the green pepper - didn't have one, and substituted 1/4 cups mayo and sour cream for the cream of mush soup). It wasn't dinner party quality but a definate keeper for the "have-ground-beef-but-don't-know-what-to-do-with-it" night.

Aunt Millie's Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
I brought this to a picnic and my friend's mother said that she liked it and didn't even like broccoli - always the sign of a winning recipe. I made this incorporating other's suggestions like using cheddar instead of American Cheese, reduced pepper to 1T, omited salt, used Ritz crackers instead of croutons, and I used cream of potato soup just because it's what I had. Also, I too chopped the broccoli - and important step if kids (at least my kids) are going to be eating it. This was good and I will make it again.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: May 27, 2007
I made this tonight out of desperation - our freezer died and I needed to use thawed chicken, thawed diced ham (which I ended up chopping fairly fine) and happened to also have shredded Swiss in there. Kind of heavy for a hot summer day (not the recipe's fault) but nonetheless, delicious. My 8, 6,and 4 year olds kept asking when dinner was ready because it smelled so good. I made it just as written (short of the diced ham and shredded swiss instead of whole slices). Very, very good.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: May 8, 2007
Very good recipe. Nice change from the old standard no-frills tuna salad. I made it just as written, doubling the recipe, except went a little easier on the mayo (doubling it, it was starting to look *very* mayonnaise-y at 8T and had to actually add a third can of tuna to thin it out). Except for my family's preference on the mayo, this was really good.

White Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
This recipe break my cardinal rule of only making recipes with LOTS of 4/5 stars. I needed a simple white sauce recipe that I had all of the ingredient on hand for (ruling out almost all of the others since I didn't have cream or half and half) so I gave this a shot. I have to say it was pretty good. I did not have any butter-flavored granules so I did add a smidge more butter but I didn't feel it was missing anything. I did add a little extra flour than stated since I was having thickening problems but, in the end, with a little bit of salt and pepper, it was a nice, simple white sauce that is very good as is or could be gussied up if being served over more than just pasta. Sometimes risks do pay off.

Mint Juleps

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
I'm not sure if I'm fairly rating this recipe because it may well be fantastic considering what it's supposed to be but....wowsa was this strong!!! No matter how much I tried to dilute it, I kept flashing back to my college days. I just couldn't drink this, nor could my husband who has a WAY WAY higher tolerance than me for alcohol. Too strong!!!!!!!!

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
This is a revised review....originally I gave this 2 stars because I found it somewhat greasy which just made the whole texture/consistency kind of unappealing. It wasn't creamy at all. The cheesey mixture just sat in a pool of grease that wouldn't mix in with the other liquid no matter how much I stirred. In all fairness....today is day 2. I just went to have some and had to skim the top of all of the chicken fat that had congealed. After I did that, I heated it up and it was 1000% better. Apparently in my attempt to be a "real" cook (which obviously does not come naturally) I used actual chicken stock (as opposed to a can - my norm). Stick with the canned stock, there's too much fat in the real deal.

Gob Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
I'm not sure that I'm entitled to rate this recipe because of the extensive changes that I made. I was originally going for a whoopie pie recipe which led me to gob cakes (a name apparently limited to PA borders since I'm in MD and have never heard it called by that name). This recipe sounded the best of the gob cake/whoopie pie selection. One thing I didn't take into account was that this was a "cake" so after mixing it, it was way too runny to be used for individual whoopie pies. I added an additional 1 - 1 1/2 cups of flour (I didn't measure, I just kept adding until the consistency was right). For the icing, I used a previous reviewers recipe of 3c powdered sugar, 1/3c butter, 1t vanilla, and 1-2T milk just because the butter and shortening in icing sounded too greasy for me. Overall, the whoopie/gob pies were very good and snack time after school for my 3 children was silent (they were too busy devouring the pies to talk).

Amish Yumazuti

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2007
Not eye-popping spectacular but an excellent stand-by when you have ground beef that needs to be used. I didn't even tell my husband about the earlier reviewer's comparisons to Hamburger Helper and it was the first thing that he said that it was like. In it's defense, it is like Hamburger Helper in that it is ground beef and egg noodles mixed but it is much tastier and a mere fraction of the sodium (not to mention the preservatives and whatever else is lurking in Hamburger Helper). I made the recipe as it is written (minus the celery because I didn't have any) and 2cups of cheddar (we may have a cheese addiction in my home). Good comfort food and like I mentioned earlier, a nice reliable, stand-by meal when you have the ingredients.

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
This wasn't bad. If I could have, I would have given this a solid 3.5 stars. I didn't have a problem with the burgers being mushy inside (I did take earlier advice and made the patties on the thinnish side). The taste wasn't bad but I don't think it makes the regular rotation. I'll keep the recipe but will only use it on occasion when I'm in the mood for tuna but not a tuna salad or casserole. Can't rave about it but can't complain.

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
Not bad but far from spectacular. Followed recipe exactly. Wanted to like it and expected too since it was so highly rated but I think I'll keep looking for a better tilapia recipe.
