Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
This is really good! I didn't have dry gravy mix so I did as a previous reviewer suggested and used an envelope of dry onion soup mix but everything else I added as the recipe was written. Just delicious. I didn't try to thicken up the gravy, and it was kind of runny but it was good over egg noodles. Definitely cook it for the hour that's suggested. The meat is "done" really after you brown it, but it only tenderizes after the hour that it simmers in the broth. Great recipe!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
Didn't make the meatballs but followed the recipe for sauce exactly, just halved it. I always surprise myself when i make something really good because I'm a terrible cook, even with a recipe, I have issues. This was super yummy! I added a splash of balsamic vinegar in at the end (I saw Jamie Oliver do that once), and added in prepared turkey meatballs from Trader Joes about 20 minutes before it was done. Fabulous super easy recipe.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
I made this ahead, just as written, and it turned out great. I didn't double the sauce or anything and it wasn't swimming in sauce but nice and creamy. Great recipe, don't change a thing! Unless you want to put cheese on the top. A little cheese never hurts.

Crab Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
I have to start this review saying I'm only giving the chicken 3 stars it was a little bland a bit heavy for me with the cheese, but I had so much stuffing left over I added an egg, panko crumbs, and old bay seasoning and fried these into crab cakes in some olive oil. Served up with a basic remoulade sauce (ketchup, vinegar, hot sauce, few tblsp mayo, lemon juice), and oh my, they were some tasty crab cakes!!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I omitted the pie crust altogether and spread out reduced fat biscuit dough on the top the last 10 minutes of baking. I also added 2 medium potatoes and used olive oil in place of the butter, just to make it a little more healthy. The chicken turned out a little dry, I may brown it by itself in the future instead of boiling it with the veggies, but other than that, this was an awesome base for chicken pot pie. Add your own flair, this recipe can take it!

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
This is a GREAT recipe. So easy to prepare but tastes like you spent hours. The only change I made was I upped the broth to 1 cup and used roasted garlic infused evoo (maybe 3 tblsp total, 5 tblsp seemed excessive). Oh and I added broccoli and mushrooms to the asparagus sautee. Yum yum!

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
These are amazing for being pretty much guilt free! I added an extra banana per other reviews, a tsp of vanilla, 1/4 cup skim milk, and pulsed in my Ninja. Combined with 1 1/2 cup organic flour, and 1/2 cup wheat, replaced the white sugar with 1/4 cup brown sugar (honestly I could reduce that amount, they're plenty sweet with the bananas) and 1/4 cup mini dark choc chips. Oh my goodness. YUM.

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
This was a mediocre recipe. The meat cooked up tender, but the taste just wasn't a traditional french dip to us. The au jus was downright boring. Sorry, not a winner for this house.

Pizza Without the Red Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This is a great base for anything you want to put on a pizza. I stuck some sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and olive oil in the cuisinart, pulsed to a paste. I added in the herbs the recipe called for and smeared that all over a boboli shell. Added feta, mozzarella, and asiago cheese (we love cheese), mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, more fresh basil, and olives. It was insanely good.

Pork Tenderloin Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
It's hard to rate this recipe because I used it on thin cut pork chops instead of a tenderloin. I'm sure with a tenderloin the flavor would have been different and not so dry. We liked it ok and I'll try it again, but with a tenderloin next time. Thanks for posting!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
This was pretty good! I cooked it in the slow cooker as other reviewers had done. Didn't have a ton of flavor, next time I'll add more garlic powder and maybe some onion powder. For the flavor, I give it a 3, but the ease of the recipe can't be beat, so it gets a 5. I shredded the chicken and put them in corn tortillas with black beans and all the fixings. Couldn't get the 3 year old to touch it but hubby dumped habanero sauce all over his and loved it. I'll try this again for sure with a few tweaks.

Tangy Sirloin Strips

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
This was SO good, I can't rave enough. I didn't change a thing, marinated overnight. I did the bacon thing but in the end I just took them off the pieces of meat and cooked them by themselves. Can't see how that really would affect the taste, but WOW. The glaze is so simple and so good. I made it into a steak chopped salad, yum yum yum!!!

Dave's Low Country Boil

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
How easy can you get?? This was super simple and so totally tasty. We used corn, sausage, potatoes, and shrimp. I didn't measure the Old Bay, just dumped in half a shaker and it seemed to be fine. We're going to the beach in a few weeks and I can't wait to make this again with fresh crab this time.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Pretty good, basic dinner roll recipe. Made exactly as written. Weren't as light and fluffy as I like my dinner rolls but the fam didn't have any problems eating them all up. They were actually better as leftovers the next day microwaved for 10 seconds with a little butter and honey.

Scalloped Potatoes 'n' Franks

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Really good comfort food. I used skim milk, light margarine, half the cheese and turkey dogs and it came out fabulous. My 3 year old went nuts for it.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
Big fat YUM!! I used half tomato sauce and half ketchup to cut back on the sweetness, threw in a glug of worcestershire as others had suggested. I didn't have green peppers but I had these hot banana peppers so I diced some of those and threw them in. Served up on a whole wheat bun with onions and dill pickles. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would, this is just so simple, tasty, and not bad on the calorie count. A winner for sure!

Stir-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
This was pretty good! A nice healthy change from boring old steamed asparagus. Next time I'll add more soy sauce and more garlic. I didn't have almonds, maybe that would have given it the 5 star "it" factor I was looking for.

Spicy Flat Iron Steak Rub

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
I honestly have no idea what kind of steak we used with this rub, but I can't see how any other cut would be different, it was delicious! The brown sugar mellows out the spices, so it's not too spicy or sweet. Hubby and I are trying to alter our diet a little so I went for a rub on our lean steaks instead of a marinade with a bunch of oil. I sprayed both sides of the meat with olive oil cooking spray before putting it on the grill and served over a nice big salad. Wonderful flavor, will definitely make again soon.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
I didn't care much for the glaze,and the pork by itself had no flavor at all so just not a winner for me. Thanks anyway.

Golden Coconut Peach Pie

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
I followed this recipe to a T and was pretty disappointed. There was so much liquid it overflowed, thank goodness I had it baking on a rack in a cookie sheet or my oven would have been a disaster. It looked beautiful coming out of the oven but the flavors of the coconut and peach just don't go together IMO. Hubby scraped off the top and just ate the peaches below and said that was good, so I'm giving it a few stars. Sorry, this one just didn't work for us.
