Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
I would rate this higher if I could! We went to PF Chang's after friends talked about it and we had their lettuce wraps. I was hooked. I searched for a recipe for something similar. When I found this, I ran to store and made for dinner that night! The only change I made - I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and did not used pickled ginger, just fresh chopped ginger. My family loved it! I am making again tonight and I need to double the recipe! Thanks for sharing!

The Humble Shepherd

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
Very good! I usually make shepard's pie with ground beef and beef broth mixed with tomato paste, but tonight I had ground turkey thawing. I saw this recipe, thought I would try it. Excellent with the chicken gravy and ground turkey! I left the cheese off (dairy -free). I have made it with a light sprinkling of parmesan cheese on top during the last few minutes.

Cabbage Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
I had a left over ham bone. I simmered broth with ham bone for over an hour before adding anything else. I sauted the veggies with garlic in a little olive oil. Added one cup of barley. Also added cabbage towards the end. Yummy!

Consomme Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I hate it when people change the recipe then rate it! But that's what I'm doing...I used the same basis, but did not fry. I just threw all in 9 X 13 in dish with a can of french onion soup and long grain brown rice (all I had) and started for one hour at 350, but nothing happened! So I upped the temp to 400 and was done in another 45 minutes. I must say because of all the reviews, and what it takes to make the rice...I used one can soup and added two cups of water. Came out perfect and the french onion soup added a great flavor and the house had a wonderful smell!

Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
These were very good! I did follow the advice of others and cut sugar in half. Not too sweet and not too vinegary. Also, I did not cut paper thin, I cut a little thicker. Perfect! Thanks!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
I brought this to work for an office pot luck. I doubled the recipe, added cucumber, and I doubled up on the dressing as one suggested. The combination of red wine vingegar, lime juice, cumin and cilatro made a nice southwestern tatse. We have many people watching their weight, so this dish was a hit! Thanks!

New Orleans Barbequed Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Oh my gosh! This was delish! Tasted alot like shrimp scampi. I followed directions exactly, except I used olive oil in place of butter (lactose intolerance). Also as somone suggested and I threw some mushroom in. I served as a main dish over rice. But can also be served over noodles/ pasta. Very good! will make again.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
I brought this recipe in for our office chili cookoff contest on halloween. I won! Thank you so much! Everyone was skeptical at first, not the typical chili, but once they tried it they were hooked! I did follow other suggestions: using a jar of salsa verde, 2 cans northern beans, one can corn and one more cup of chicken broth. Also, I used the entire rotissere chicken. I had to stretch out to feed 15. Using lime made a big difference too, but add to your bowl not to entire recipe.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
I had family in from out of town on a weekday. I saw this recipe and gave it a try. Crockpot meals while I was at work was an excellent idea. I purchased a 4 pound sirloin, because I was cooking for ten. I did the prep work the night before, cut up beef (I did chunks) and peppers and kept separately. In the morning, I threw together. I noticed the recipe only called for 1/4 cup of water - I added 2 cups and blended with a good tablespoon of beef base. I also followed other suggestion of adding peppers in the last hour. When I got home, my kids thought it was soup! I turned crockpot on high, added pepers. When broth simmered, I added the cornstarch and water. Turned into a nice thick gravy within minutes. Served with rice, salad and fresh bread from market. Excellent! I did not have any leftovers (darn!). I will definitely make again!

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I made these last summer when the family and I went camping and I made over an indirect camp fire. They turned out delish! I bet you can do them in the BBQ for a hot summer night's dinner.

Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
This was excellant! I followed a suggestion by another reader and let the strawberries sit for a while after adding a little sugar. I used about 1 1/2 pounds of strawberries. Also, I used only a 3 ounce box of jello, all that I had. Still turned out very good. My husband loved it! The kids devoured it! Thanks for a great recipe!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
At first, I thought that fish tacos would not be very good (did not sound appealing). But we went to a little hole in the wall place in Fort Collins were they had this exact dish. I tried it and it has become a family favorite. I was so glad when I found this recipe. Thanks!

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
My family and I thought this was very good! For those who are concerned with the sodium content try switching to low sodium soy sauce. That's what I used and it turned out perfectly!

Baked Haddock

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Excellent! The only things I added were - a good dash of old bay seasoning with bread crumbs and a squeeze of lemon in with the melted butter before drizzling. Husband and two teenagers loved it.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
I was looking for a recipe to use leftover roast from Sunday dinner. I used my roast, but I shredded the meat and threw everything in the crock pot in the morning before work. 8 hours later had yummy soup! Thanks for the recipe!

Amatriciana

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I tried this a couple of times and loved it. Last night, I had some red wine while cooking. I added a good splash (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup) of wine to cooked chopped bacon and onion and let simmer for 10 minutes till it reduced then added the tomatoes. Oh my god, perfection!

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
I had to add some meat to it for my family, so I added mediteranian seasoned turkey sausage and a package of spinach instead of the escarole. Excellent!
