Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2015
We made a few minor changes but feel we were true to the recipe. We added two cloves of chopped garlic in with the meat and onion. We only had fettucini, so we used that instead of spaghetti. We "bolstered" the cottage cheese with some garlic powder and chopped fresh oregano. We mixed the cooked pasta into the cheese mixture and tossed it thoroughly. Our layers then were (from bottom up) pasta/cheese mixture, sauce/meat mixture and the mozzarella. Repeat. Everyone liked it a lot and asked to have it again soon.

Slow Cooker Pernil Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2015
We didn't care for this. It seemed bland. We thought it would be much more flavorful.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2015
We substituted chocolate pudding for the vanilla. We followed everything else to the last detail. We loved it. I can't wait to make it again.

Fabulous Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2014
We made slight changes. We lightly browned the meat in a Teflon skillet with no oil. We added 4 cloves of chopped garlic to the baking dish. After the liquids were added, I grabbed the pepper mill and put a generous amount of black pepper on top. It was delicious. This is now our official beef tenderloin recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
I browned the chicken two minutes per side and sautéd the veggies two minutes. We enjoyed this recipe. NEXT TIME: lower sodium soup and homemade dumplings.

Best Ever Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
This was a huge hit. My only bit of tweaking was to add 1 clove of garlic, which I am glad I did. Next time I will add two cloves. I made a double batch which filled 30 phyllo cups and still left lots to bake in a dish. The phyllo cups went in the blink of an eye. People then started dipping tortilla chips into the baking dish. The oohing and ahhhing never stopped until some time after the dip was all gone. The consensus was people preferred the tortilla chips to the phyllo cups. The chips added a bit of saltiness that put the dip over the the top. What a wonderful recipe!

Beef, Burgundy Style

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
Excellent dish; The changes I made were small. I used baby bellas for the mushrooms. Merlot replaced burgundy because we had opened a bottle of merlot the night before. Top round sirloin was on sale, so I used that for the beef. We chopped up the herbs and threw them in without botheringing to bundle them. The meat was so tender and the sauce so good. Every year we share a beach house on Cape Hatteras, and we take turns making dinner. This will be what we make on our night to cook!

Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I followed the recipe, and everyone enjoyed the results. It was nice to have pumpkin dessert in something other than a pie.

Swiss Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
This is a very good recipe. We like boneless, skinless chicken thighs as a matter of preference. I used liberal amounts of salt free lemon-pepper seasoning and then browned the thighs. I removed the thighs from the pan and then deglazed the pan with two cans of the chicken soup. I put the thighs in the baking dish and topped them with 8 oz. of shredded swiss and then the soup mixed together with 1/2 cup of milk. I nestled the chopped frozen broccoli on top of the soup. I tossed 3 cups of herb seasoned stuffing mix with a stick of butter and sprinkled this on top of everything. We ended up with delicious chicken and broccoli in a nice cheese (but not too cheesy) sauce. The stuffing provides a great texture contrast. This rates five stars, and I am sure we be putting it into the "regular rotation."

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
We enjoyed this. I replaced the taco sauce with two jars of Newman's mild salsa. The crunch of the tortilla chips is essential.

Fresh Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
This was outstanding. We didn't strain the soup. We used chicken broth instead of water. We picked the peas ourselves, so they couldn't have been any fresher. It was wonderful.

Blondie Caramel Heaven

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
These are wonderful. I followed the recipe to the letter. I baked it in a 10" diameter Corning baking dish, so it took 40 minutes for the brownies to become firm. Because I used a circular baking dish, I served it as pie wedges; again, truly outstanding.

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Excellent recipe; I followed what others said by using 10 eggs. I used 3 cups of shredded cheese. I also added a glob of Dijon mustard to the egg-cheese mixture. We like it better than strata, and it's so much easier.

Upside Down Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
With alterations from other reviewers, we enjoyed this. Double the hamburg, onion and garlic. Add slivers of pepperoni and jalapenos (next time I'll go with bell peppers instead). When the hamburg is browned, remove from heat. After letting it cool slightly, add 1 beaten egg and then a jar plus a little more of pizza sauce. Spread the entire mixture across the 13x9 glass baking dish. Cover with LOTS of shredded mozzarella and grated romano. Covered with the crescent rolls and brush the dough with beaten egg. The finished product still doesn't have a huge wow factor, but everyone liked it, and it gives us one more way to have ground beef.

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
This is an outstanding chicken recipe. I used thighs rather than breasts as we simply prefer thighs. I followed what others have said and marinated the chicken. (1hr). The marinade consisted of no-fat Italian salad dressing, the juice from half a lemon and three smashed up garlic cloves. With the other half of lemon, I put a few splashes of juice into the melted butter and then a few more splashes over everything just before putting the dish in the oven. Wow. We will be making this dish again and again.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This was hearty, satisfying dish when served on rice (cooked in chicken broth and garlic granules rather than water). I could see doing this another time with garam masala rather than cumin and allspice.

Dad's Down Home Cornbread and Jalapeno Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Our only change from the original recipe was replacing the cornbread with cornbread mix. My wife thought this was the best meatlof she ever had. I know we will be making this one again and experimenting with it to get it just so.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
Made it exactly as written and loved it. Caveat - this is not a really dense, New York style cheesecake. It's lighter than that, but wow, it's good.
