Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
In the category of "actions speak louder than words" -- I made this for a post-New Year's family gathering. As everyone was standing around talking about their New Year's resolutions to lose weight, eat healthier, etc, they were gobbling this dish down. It was so good (and loved by all), even the resolution-breakers. Made just as written.

Kansas City Steak Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Wow, was this good! My husband assumed that is was stew when he saw a thick, dark meaty/veggie something in a pot. He is the king of hating all things "stew". Once I convinced him that it was soup and not stew, he tried it and loved it. The kids went back 2 and 3 times for more! I made it almost just as written but didn't have any frozen veggies so I used more of the carrots and celery and did throw in a few potatoes.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I have made this recipe a hundred times yet, only found it on the site today. An oldie but a goody. Even though every kid in Home Ec makes it, it's still worth posting and rating. Cheers for the good ol' standbys. :o)

Baked Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
I'm not usually a risk-taker when it comes to cooking and have to admit that this recipe made me very nervous. It's one thing to bomb on spaghetti pie - it's another thing entirely when there are so many high-dollar ingredients. I made it just as written (didn't scale it down) and I do agree that it was bit soupy - thick, but soupy nonetheless. It was still very good though served over rice and I would definitely consider making it again (although my 11 year old said he'd rather have had grilled cheese for dinner).

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
I love to make my own bread so it defies logic that I don't own a breadmaker. But, since I don't, I'm limited with the recipes that I can make. I have to say that this bread was GOOD! I wasn't too dense or too bland. Just good bread without any ingredients that made me wonder "what's that?!!" I will definitely make again!!

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I'm very impressed with these since it took something kind of gross - canned salmon, and turned it into a yummy dinner. I made it just as written except sauted the onions in olive oil instead of butter. They were good and everyone had seconds (except for my 5 year old - which, unless it has a big "M" on it purchased at a drive thru, she won't approve). I served them with the Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties as a previous reviewer suggested and it was a quick-to-fix, moderately healthy, meal. Thanks!!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This was my maiden voyage in bread making (sans a bread maker, no less!) I was a little concerned at times that I had done something wrong (trying to interpret foamy yeast and giving it a little extra time during the initial rise) but in the end, it came out great. I did have to help it rise the second time by sticking it a warm oven since it must've been a little too cool in my house for it to rise on it's own. Because of the pans that I had, 1/2 was baked in a Pampered Chef bread pan, the other 1/2 in a Pyrex dish. I do have to say that the 1/2 baked in the stone seemed to cook more evenly and was a bit better so it you have the choice... Both were good though!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I made this as listed - almost. I did take the advice of others and substituted 1/2 of the water for chicken broth. Also, I didn't have a full bag of Northern Beans so I made up the difference with Pinto Beans. The outcome was surprisingly good. My only complaint was that it was pretty salty so next time I'll be sure to use low sodium chicken broth. Overall, very good recipe deserving of 5 stars since it got my 9, 7, and 5 year olds (not to mention my husband) to eat beans.

Bacon Wrapped Barbeque Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
The family loved it!! I did pre-cook the bacon as others suggested - mainly because I was using leftover shrimp that was already cooked. I didn't have any b-b-q sauce on hand so I used a free sample that I had of KC Masterpiece dry b-b-q rub. It was great!!! My 9 year old could NOT get enough! Yum!!

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
This really was super yummy. I made it just as written plus added some Old Bay Seasoning (had too being from the Eastern Shore of MD). Everyone (husband and 3 kids) all had nothing but compliments. That deserves 6 stars!!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Really good. Light enough for a hot summer day, yet filling. My anti-pasta-must-have-meat-husband even took seconds and thirds. I made it just as written except did double the sauce (definitely the way to go) and went a bit easy on the pepper (a generous 1t vs. the 2t that it called for) and added some heavy cream at the end to thicken it. Yummy.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
I am NOT a fan of pumpkin pie so whatever possessed me to make this is beyond me. Made it just as written (except for adding cinnamon to the icing, as previously suggested). I was all prepared to think these were "okay", but, holy cow, were these good! They were moist, not overly sweet, not overly pumpkin-y (yea, for me!!). Very good cookie and a nice change from our good ol' chocolate chip.

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I gave this 5 stars because my kids loved it! If a recipe can get my 8, 6, and 4 year olds to happily eat tomatoes (and ask for more), that's a keeper-recipe in my book!

Easy and Delicious Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
Really was "easy and delicious". Even my vehemently-opposed-to-anything-from-the-slowcooker" husband loved it and said it tasted like something from Macaroni Grill. Made it just as written with the exception of Cream of Mushroom soup in place of the Cream of Chicken (didn't have any). Served it over linguini. Was very good and will absolutely be made again...soon.

Fun Cookie Suckers

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
What a fun project with the kids on an unexpected snow day. It took a cookie or so to get the technique down (we were making the "snake" too thin) but even the mistakes have their own character. I added the additional 1/3 cup of sugar as others had suggested and we didn't have a problem with bland cookies. They are sugar cookies though, not super sweet like choco chip, etc. Will definitely make again.

Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Really good! I made this because Plan A for dinner didn't work out and I had everything on hand for this. The only change was I substituted fresh jalapeno for dried habanaro reconstituted. Insignificant change. My 8 year old wouldn't stop eating! Even my picky husband admitted that it was good.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
What a yummy recipe! I did double all of the ingredients for the sauce as others had recommended except for the crushed red pepper. Even without doubling the red pepper, it was a little hot for our taste. We had it over rice. Very easy to make and really very good.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
These are yummy. After reading some of the earlier posts, I did increase the flour to a generous 2 1/2 cups and had no problems with sticky dough. I also followed the advice of others and reduced cloves to 1/4 tsp. and used 1/2 cup butter (vs. margarine). On the first batch, I did forget to flatten slightly and my cookies did not get that nice, cracky look to them. All of the other batches did so flattening slightly must be the key. And with the changes that I made, they were nice and puffy, no flat cookies here. Thanks!!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I made this for a Christmas gathering with my in-laws. I was a little nervous about what this combination of ingredients would taste like but the risk was definitely worth taking! Made recipe just as written,using fresh roasted garlic, and the entire block of cream cheese (which was 8 oz. as called for in recipe). I was getting compliments all evening. Gotta love a recipe that's easy to throw together AHEAD OF TIME and just thrown in the oven before guests arrive allowing you to do other things. Definitely a keeper.

Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
It is fast and it is easy and for that, I did rate it 5 stars. It's not super fantastic but pretty darn okay considering just how "fast and easy" it is. Didn't do a lot for my attempt at ridding my household of high-sodium, processed foods but for an occasional quick and easy meal, I'd make it again....in a couple of weeks.
