Nana's Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
This was really good. I didn't feel like babysitting it on the stove for 2-3 hours so I popped it in the oven in a covered casserole dish for about an hour. I added the white wine and sour cream and put it back in for another 30-ish minutes. Worked great

Margarita Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
Meh.....this was ok in my book. I added a bit more tequila and lime juice and it still didn't have a strong enough flavor for me personally. I'll try something else next time.

Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Different and decent. I thought the original was a little bland....so I added a few things: fresh pineapple instead of canned, dried tropical fruit mix instead of just raisins, & fresh banana slices. (The banana slices are a must!) This isn't a favorite of mine, but I would make it again and it fit in well with my Hawaiian themed dinner tonight. Made with Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker, baked yams, and fresh pineapple with Li Hing Powder.....ahhhh I miss Maui!!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
Great! I LOVE this recipe!! I used iceberg lettuce and immersed it in ice water for about 30 min before serving to get them nice and crisp. No pickled ginger, so just used fresh. The only thing that would have been nice is a little more heat, but that's just me. I should tell you, there must be a lot of sodium in here because I can't stop drinking water tonight! Well worth it though:) Great recipe...I'll definitely make this for company. ( I made the sauce suggested by RedRobyn except I added about 4 T Plum Sauce to it. DEElicious!)

Mango Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
This was great! I was skeptical at first, but it really works. I used a nice balsamic vinegar "Fini" and it turned out perfect. Served with white rice and Asian Lettuce Wraps. I'll make this again.

Cedar Planked Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Wonderful recipe for Salmon! This one is staying in my recipe box. Next time, instead of discarding the marinade, I will brush a bit more on at intervals while it's grilling. The marinade is TO DIE FOR!!

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I followed Elly's idea and also used the pork tenderloin as I hate thick pork chops for some reason. Took and flattened it out, added the seasonings and goodies, then used twine to tie together. The time to roast took WAY longer for me, little over an hour at 400. While it was very good, I think I should have made a cream sauce to pour over as it was a tad dry....probably to my error in the roasting (: Thanks Darla for a nice recipe.

My Mom's Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Just okay for me. Not bad but not something I would be proud to serve to guests. It is handy as the ingredients are easily found in my kitchen nearly anytime.

Maria's Broccoli Rabe

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Silly me! I don't know what "rabe" is. I'm not even sure we have it in TN?? :-)....so I just used regular fresh broccoli. It was DELICIOUS!! My favorite green vege dish! I didn't even use the parm cheese...it doesn't need it.

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I hate giving bad reviews...but this needs one. I love stilton cheese and this sounded good......but I really don't like it at all. I'm in the kitchen now trying to come up with something to make this taste good.

Lemon Pepper Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Yum! What a pleasant surprise!! I'm trying to eat more fresh veges.....and these will stay in my recipe box. I don't really measure anything out...just guess at what I'm throwing in...turned out great. Oh, I did use pecans instead of almonds because that's what is always in the pantry. My 'hon liked these too and he's not really into anything with a lot of spice. **Update***...this is my FAVORITE vege recipe!!! I make these all the time now with the pecans instead of almonds. I can't get enough of these!!

Creamy Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Very good. I too only used 2 cups of pumpkin puree and the flavors turned out just right. I made my own pie crust and baked it for about 10 minutes before adding the pumpkin mix.

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
This was just ok for me. It was dry, maybe some cream cheese in the mixture would have helped....small pat of butter on each chicken roll? I don't know. I'm also a huge bleu cheese fan...but it just didn't seem to have a place here. I made up extra to freeze so I'm going to come up with a sauce to pour over top when I have this again.

Banana Bread VIII

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Oh, this one is a keeper. By far the best banana bread I've eaten...even beats the slice I had in Hawaii! I followed this recipe with the only exception being, I used raw sugar instead of pure white....for health reasons....I'm trying to blot out of my mind the shortening part :) This bread is VERY moist, so I'm not sure what happened to other reviews when it is listed as being too dry. Mine came out to perfection....just had to bake an extra 10 minutes. Love it! Love it!

Mussels Mariniere

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
Reminded me of the mussels I had in Dingle, Ireland. Very good! I did leave out the green stuff because I didn't want to overpower the mussels but I might try them next time. We ate these with simple linguine with parm cheese on the side and then stuffed baby bellas with Maryland Crab cakes and baked. Crusty bread dipped in olive oil......perfect and fun meal!

Texas Ranch Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
This is a keeper!! I did what some others did and used half sour cream and half light mayo. Excellent still warm, and excellent the next day chilled. I can't wait to make this for my next barbeque. Pretty sure this is going to be the end of traditional mustard potato salad for me.

Drunken Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Tasty. I dumped the marinade, asparagus, and all into heavy duty foil shaped like a makeshift square pan...and placed on the grill. I like my asparagus REALLY done, nearly burnt, so I cooked for about 20 minutes.
