New Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
Decent potato salad which was enjoyed by all who ate it. I did add a little dried dill and a teaspoon of sugar to the dressing. I would suggest cooking the eggs longer. Mine were not done after 12 minutes.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
Up until last week, I had never eaten or made a flan. I did a lot of reading on this site, other sites and took out several Mexican cooking books from the library. I was invited to a Cinco de Mayo party and was asked to bring dessert. I wanted to bring something authentic. After reading the reviews of this recipe I chose to make a trial flan from one of the books last week. It was wonderful!!! Everyone enjoyed it. So, I made another one for the party yesterday and there was not a bite left. Everyone enjoyed it so much. Since this recipe had such rave reviews I also made this recipe for dinner today. It was a disappointment after the "real" flan. I now understand why so many people said it was not a flan. It is an okay dessert, but it is not a flan and it is not a cheesecake. I have great cheesecake recipes from this site and a great flan recipe. I will not be making this again. It was just okay.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Tasty recipe. I did add more milk because we prefer creamier potatoes than I was getting. Maybe I used larger potatoes than the person who submitted this recipe. I also use a ricer rather than an electric mixer. I feel a ricer gives you much fluffier potatoes. I heated the milk and butter and added the roasted garlic to that mixture. After I riced the potatoes, I added the milk mixture and stirred. I made them about 2 hours before dinner and put them in a crock pot to stay warm. Worked great!!!

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
This was enjoyed by my guests, but no one was ranting at how wonderful the sauce was. After all the reviews I expected a little more positive response. People said it was good, but no one said it was great. I am a vegetarian so I didn't taste it myself. The recipe said 2 lbs would feed 6 people. I had a 5 pound tenderloin and it fed 7 adults. Since our group did not like rare meat, we cooked it to 155 degrees. The narrow end was completely done, the thicker part was a light pink.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
This recipe is almost identical to the Betty Crocker Snickerdoodles Recipe I have been making for 30+ years. This recipe adds vanilla, which is the only differnce. All other ingredients and amounts are identical. I really thought that adding the vanilla would be a nice touch. However, we really don't like the vanilla flavor in these cookies. It takes away from the cinnamon taste. Needless to say, we are very disappointed. This batch will get eaten, but not in the speed the Betty Crocker Recipe does.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
This is your basic recipe for stuffed cabbage that always brings me compliments. I bake this recipe in the oven rather than cooking it stove top. I line my pan with the larger cabbage leaves. I also cover the cabbage rolls wtih additional leaves. This way the actual cabbage rolls stay moist and don't get burned. I do parboil my cabbage, cutting a few leaves off at a time as they cook. I do add 1/2 to 3/4 cup tomato juice to the meat. This is something my Polish mother always did. I do make a different sauce. After all the work of making homemade stuffed cabbage rolls, I find it hard to pour tomato soup on top. For one pound of meat, I mix an 8oz. can of tomato sauce, 1 Tablespoon brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce. I mix well and pour over cabbage rolls. Sometimes I double the sauce if I want a lot extra. I often serve these with noodles, so it is nice to have plenty of sauce to pour on the noodles.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
This a truly wonderful side dish. Per reviews I made few changes, but nothing that would affect the overall rating. I did cut the sugar in half and added 1 tsp. cinnamon to the potato mixture. I doubled the vanilla. One time I baked my potatoes in the microwave, let them cool a bit, peeled them and then diced them. another time I baked them in the oven at 375 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. I put the potatoes and the other ingredients into my Kitchen Aid mixer bowl, and whipped it all up with the whipping attachment. I am not sure how they come out if you don't do that. But my recipe came out light and fluffy...really wonderful!!! Although I liked the topping I would cut the flour amount. I am not sure why it is even needed, but I noticed that similar recipes called for it, so I did do use it. People who generally do not like sweet potatoes, but were willing to try this recipe, did enjoy it. Thanks Tina, this is an amazing recipe!!!

Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
This is a wonderful recipe.I found a packaged brown rice/wild rice combination and used that. Since I am vegetarian, I used vegetable broth. Because I thought the onion amount was vague, I went with 2 medium onions. I increased the mushrooms to 3/4 cup. I used tangerine zest instead of orange, because that is all I had. If you like these ingredients in general, I think you will love this recipe. The flavors come together so nicely. The only changes I will make next time is use less butter and more orange zest. It ended up being a bit too greasy for my tastes. But still worth 5 stars. I can't wait to try this next Thanksgiving or Christmas. UPDATE: I continue to make this dish with great success. I have cut back on the cranberries. I find I prefer it a little less sweet. Also, I do make this a day ahead and reheat. I find that if do not but the almonds in until you are going to reheat it, they will be crunchier. Just love this recipe!!!

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
Very easy and tasty recipe. I broke the cauliflower up into pieces and steamed it. I used Earth Balance margarine in place of butter. I put the steamed cauliflower in a casserole dish, and sprinkled the breadcrumbs on top and tossed everything together. It was a tasty dish and much healthier than one that uses cheese sauce. This will become a frequent way to prepare this dish. Thanks!!!

Salsa Red Beans N Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
This is a tasty recipe. I only made minor changes. I didn't use red onion and I used a full 16 oz. jar of salsa. I would say use salsa to taste. You can make this dish as moist or dry as you like by changing the amount of salsa. Great recipe!!!

Veggie Brown Rice Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
This was a very tasty wrap. Instead of using 3/4 cup salsa and drizzling it onto the rice mixture in the wrap, I added 1 cup salsa along with the rice and other ingredients. I like the salsa to be evenly distributed. The ingredients make for a very colorful dish. (I used the red pepper)I also used a regular frying pan, sprayed it with Pam and cut the oil in half. This is definitely a keeper!!! Healthy and tasty!! What more could you ask for? I think this recipe would also be very good with black beans. For those looking for healthier diets do not even think of substituting white rice.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
My family thought this recipe was okay, but nothing outstanding. We will not likely make it again.

Baked Pineapple Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
After reading reviews I made adjustments, so I found it hard to give it the full 5 stars. This was a very tasty dish that went well with the pork tenderloin I prepared. I also served broccoli along with it. It was a nice presentation. Since so many commented on the sweetness, I cut the sugar in half. I used pineapple in its own juice, NOT the kind that has the sweetened syrup. It turned out fine...not sweet at all. I also cut the butter in half. Next time I would use just two tablespoons. I could still taste a bit of greasiness, although not bad. I followed the directions and used a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg. If you want to taste these, you will have to use more than a pinch. We could not detect either spice in the casserole. Many reviewers said it was too eggy for them. So I used three eggs and 1/4 cup of milk. It turned out well. Cooking time was right on. I used a 2 1/2 quart casserole. It was a nice change from potatoes. Everyone who ate it, enjoyed it.

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
Very good recipe for a stove top rice pudding. I followed it exactly. As far as the cooking time goes, I am surprised the recipe states to simmer for exactly one hour. It may take more or less time. Rather than say a time, just know that you need to cook it until it starts to thicken. Some reviewers stated that it will not set up in the frig. I have not had that experience. I simply cook the pudding until it starts to thicken. It finishes setting in the frig. If you cook it too long, it will not be creamy enough.

Baked Corn I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
This was a very tasty recipe. I used thawed, frozen corn, chopped green onion, red pepper instead of green and skipped the cracker crumb topping. (I didn't want to add more fat to the recipe.) It was quick to make and came out wonderful. This will be a great recipe for a holiday buffet!! Loved it!!! Thanks!!!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
This was my first recipe attempt with Quinoa. It was a great success!!! I used this as a main dish, so I felt the two cans of black beans were definitely needed. I made a few minor changes to the recipes. I used less cumin, dried cilantro (Maybe a half tablespoon) and I ended up adding a little more broth. It seemed to be getting a little too dry. I also chopped up one roma tomato. Next time will add more tomato. This dish tasted so healthy. I loved it and so did my teenage daughter. She chose to add some grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream. She loved it that way.

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
This recipe did not go over very well. It was okay, just not great. For one thing, it was a little too garlicky for us. I decreased the lemon juice in half, but the dip still had too lemony of a taste for us. I am not sure what this recipe needed, but it needed something. Even though many said this was better than restaurant versions, I do not agree. The restaurants I have gone to had much better spinach artichoke dips.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2006
I hate to be the bad guy, but I was not impressed with this recipe. It has its pluses, which is why it got a three. It is a relatively light banana bread. Most banana bread recipes are very heavy and dense. This one cooks up light, which is nice. What I didn't like, was the cinnamon in the batter. I love cinnamon, but it overpowered the banana taste. If I decide to try this recipe again, I will not put any cinnamon in the batter. I will, however, put the cinnamon/sugar mixture on the bottom of the pan and on the top of the batter. That would be all the cinnamon I would want. I guess I am used to banana bread tasting like banana, and I didn't find that the case in this bread.

Erica's Delicious Slow Cooker Beef Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
My husband really enjoyed this recipe. I did make a few changes. I used the Golden Mushroom Soup. I added more garlic, fresh ground pepper and some red cooking wine to the soup. Otherwise I followed it as posted. He said it was very tender and tasty. I am a vegetarian, so I can't vouch for it myself, but he loved it.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
This soup is very mediocre. It tastes healthy, but it is really lacking. I used half vegetable broth and half water. I would definitely recommend all broth. I had even doubled the veggies. I think it needs a lot more spices. I will be looking for another recipe to try. This was not the one for me.
