Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
My horseradish-loving husband thought these were great. My teenager did not. I served them with Asian Style Country Ribs from this site and thought they were a great alternative to rice or noodles.

Italian Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I left out the onion and served the bell peppers on the side for individuals to add. The mixture of Caesar and Italian dressings were a great twist.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
4.5 Stars: This is a good and easy recipe. It took longer for mine to cook and if I use it again, I will add garlic and such.

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2011
This had a good flavor, but I'm not sure it's worth it unless you have a problem with additives. Mine were a light color, as compared to supermarket, and seemed to be a little dry.

Pork Chops Italiano

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
4.5 Stars: I had to leave out the mushrooms and sliced bell peppers for the family. I did add some dehydrated bell pepper to the tomato mixture. I made it ahead and added some water when it was time to add to pork loin chops. We served it over angel hair pasta and I thought it was restaurant quality. I'm not sure what's keeping me from giving it the full 5 stars, perhaps my revisions.

Hot Spiced Cranberry Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
4.5 Stars: This is a delicious cider that I kept in the crock pot when my daughter had strep. She didn't like it, but I think it's great.

Asian Flair Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I marinated overnight and did not get a really strong flavor from the marinade. It was good, but that's a lot of ingredients to not have a prominent flavor. The best piece I had was when I put a couple leftover pieces in the fridge, so this might be really good in a salad.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
This was good, but nothing great. It did not taste as "crock-pot" as most meats, so maybe the root beer helped that. I liked using pork tenderloin because it is so lean.

Crescent Mummy Dogs

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
We love these on Halloween, but my crescents never fully cover the weiner, especially if you get a good brand like Nathan's.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
This took longer, but is very efficient. I used the thick-cut bacon and it tasted a lot like cracklins. I will try it with regular bacon soon.

Honey Roasted Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
I quartered the carrots and thought they were delicious. I lined the pan with foil and there was more liquid than I expected. I could have used more carrots.

Creamy Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
These were good and even my cream cheese and sour cream haters ate them. I did have comments that the consistency is different than regular mashed potatoes.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
This was fine, but we weren't blown away by it. I think it needs more garlic, lemon and salt.

Marinated Spicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
I used pork tenderloin and marinated overnight. It ended up pretty salty and we did not get any real "spicy" flavor.

Famous Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
This was pretty spicy, and we like spicy. I would have enjoyed it more had it been toned down a bit, but that is just personal opinion. I used chicken tenders.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
The broccoli was not cooked long enough and there really just was nothing very flavorful. I added a little extra milk and it turned out very watery, but that's my fault. It definitely needs some garlic, extra cheese, maybe two cans of soup, something.

Hamburger Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I used this as a base recipe and rate it a 5 because I do not believe in poorly rating a recipe you change. I used 2 cans beef broth and 1 vegetable broth instead of water. I used a bag of frozen soup veggies and a bag of frozen okra, one can of diced tomatoes, 4 carrots, 5 potatoes and 1 onion. Instead of buillion I used a packet of brown gravy mix. I did not use basil, but a tiny, tiny amount of thyme with a healthy dose of garlic. Next time I will add extra corn and peas.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
I used the Liption Beefy Onion soup mix and this was probably the best crock pot roast I have made. We really don't care for it out of the crock pot, but it's a great after-work alternative. I do suggest the Beefy Onion mix. I also seared with the Montreal seasoning.

Grilled Chicken with Herbs

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
We were not impressed with this recipe; however, I did not completely ding it because I followed reviews and added the balsamic later in the marinating. I also did not have all of the parsley. I can say it drastically needs salt and pepper.

Polenta with Rosemary and Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
This is a good side. I had cornmeal mix, so I left out the salt and it was perfect. I always forget I have to bake polenta, but it definitely needed it. I served it with the Braised Pork Ragu and enjoyed it.
