Super Al's Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
Today, in South Florida, I was able to buy 2 dozen Apalachicola oysters for $16. I'm one of those "wastes cocktail sauce from the store, and really dislikes the taste anyhow" kind of people. So, tried this recipe...and O M G!! Hubby and I demolished them all with the help of this deceptively simple, but oh-so-perfect cocktail sauce! Totally sold. Will never buy store-bought again. My only caution is that if you don't use fresh horseradish (cuz I didn't have any on-hand), be SURE the stuff you have is as spicy as you like it. I'm going to be more careful about the horseradish I use next time...but this Sauce is THE BOMB!!!!!

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
What a great idea! Little Cups!! My mom just got out of the hospital after having a heart attack. Her sodium intake is severely limited, and I was looking for easy, healthy options. I make a turkey meatloaf which I found on Food Network, so I modified this a bit for my mom's diet: I deleted the red pepper and dijon mustard, and added shredded carrots, fine diced celery, coupla cloves of minced garlic and mushrooms. I make my own BBQ sauce [ketchup, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire], which has only the sodium from the ketchup (as opposed to 500mg +/- per serving of prepared BBQ sauce). Would give this recipe a 5, if I made it as-is, but I messed with it, so am giving 4 stars.

Broiled Grouper Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Modified the recipe according to other recommendations, so that's why only 4 stars...but it was a HUGE HIT both for me and my husband! The amount of sauce seemed too much, so I only slathered on half of it and topped with bread crumbs before going under the broiler. FABULOUS! A Keeper! Thanks!

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Giving this 5 stars, because the TASTE is PHENOMINAL! And I WILL be making this again! The question for me - because I'm not a baker - is...I live 7000 ft above sea level. How do I modify it to be more solid? Did it in a water bath at 350 for an hour, turned off oven and let'r stay there for 2 hrs. Thinking I could cut back on the sour cream, maybe do a tad more flour and/or corn starch...cook it for 30 minutes more...Any hints would be helpful. Regardless, although it was a tad mushy, the TASTE sold me, and I will figure out how to make it perfect next time. Added defrosted frozen blueberries....YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM!!!!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
I've been making this 10 years, since I first found it on AllRecipes. Buy a pre-cooked roaster chicken (I like BBQ or Sam's Club flavors), remove the meat, rough chop and set aside 'til needed, then cover bones, skin, etc. in water and create broth from it while you're cooking the onion mixture. The seasonings from the roaster chicken give it an added depth of flavor. Fill a discarded bean can with the broth (it's 14.5 oz) twice and add to your mixture. Also, I only use 2 oz jalepenos, and double up on the cheese. Enjoy!

Christmas Morning Frittata

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
YUUUHHHM! I read other reviews, and doctored as follows: replaced tomato w a can of drained Rotel, replaced parsley w a couple Tbsp cilantro, added a leftover diced portobello I had, a couple Tbsp of jarred diced jalapenos, and did half-and-half cheese, using Italian and Mexican shredded. Only had 4 eggs, and y'wouldn't know it. This was AWESOME, and received RAVE reviews from hubby. LOVE the worcestershire and bread crumbs addition! THANK YOU for posting this! Perfect for any time, not just Christmas!!!

Heavenly Halibut

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
It was okay - - but I thought the sauce was a little heavy for such a delicate fish...Not sure how to make it "better", so I'm only giving it 3 stars...

Peanut Butter Balls V

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
O M G ! ! I've been craving peanut butter and chocolate lately, so I made a half-batch of these, just as directed. The only thing I did differently is I made them 1/2" each in diameter. Prolongs the enjoyment by having more. :-) Everyone is right - they're FABULOUS even without the chocolate coating! I'm going out to the grocery store for more peanut butter to make more for family care packages. I bet they'll be cute in little candy cups (get 'em at Michael's) so they don't stick together...THANK YOU Karin, for providing this recipe! Simple, fast and OH SO YUMMY!!!!

Orange Roughy with Citrus Sauce

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
I've never had orange roughy before, so was surprised when hubby brought it home...the fish, as directed, was really yummy and flaky. NOT fishy at all! We LOVE citrus sauces and gravies on salmon and chicken - - but this sauce was WAAY too strong on the tart-side. That being said, the next time we make this (which I WILL!) I'll HALF the lemon and lime, and DOUBLE the orange juice, and let it reduce to half. Hubby also likes things spicy, so we added a few drops of habanero sauce w/ mango (Crazy Jerry's Brain Damage - it's awesome!), which added another yummy layer of flavor...I'm sure your favorite hot sauce will do just fine... Anyhow - only 3 stars, cuz I had to mess w the recipe so much...other than that, a total keeper which I'll be making again!!!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
I wanted to try something other than my tried-and-true, very simple recipe that Mama used to make. I was SO not loving the golden mushroom thing! After the first meal, I did not eat the rest. Maybe this is what others grew up with for Beef Stroganoff, but I did not care for this. Usually I don't write negative reviews...but I don't want others misled like I was. Sorry, Jessica...

Beef Barley Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is the perfect meal to warm you up on a cold winter day! Rather than add the flour at the end, I put it into a ziploc bag, added salt, pepper and garlic powder, then shook the stew beef in it. Threw it all in the pot with the olive oil and browned the beef that way, first, then added the remaining ingredients. Followed other suggestions - 2 cups beef broth and 1 cup wine. Use whatever kind of mushrooms are on sale. Used quick cooking barley - doubled up. Added a can of peas with their juice, which gave it a nice little depth. The longer you cook it, the better it is!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Made this at TxGvg for my sister and her 4 kids (1 is a vegetarian) and it was a HUGE success! Have since made it almost weekly 'cuz it's a "quick, cheap and easy" lunch option for me. Followed other suggestions - doubled the broccoli, added 1/2 lb cheddar jack cheese and reduced cornstarch 'cuz the soup is so thick to begin with...LOVE this stuff!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
Been looking for a twice baked smashed potatoes recipe for a while. This was excellent! The only thing I'd do differently is add the bacon bits into the mixture. They were too tough when just sprinkled on top. Had them for Chirstmas dinner with Prime Rib. Mom and hubby raved! YUM!

Ham and Potatoes Au Gratin

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
Pretty good...but I think I've made it better... 1. Double up on the cheese 2. Use canned sliced potatoes. Eleviates the "potatoes weren't done" dilemma I read from others. 3. Add 2 cups +/- frozen mixed veggies (corn, carrots, green beans) to the ham mixture 4. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top. AND 5. USE IT FOR BRUNCH THE NEXT DAY! a) Coat a skillet with butter or butter cooking spray b) Fill half of the skillet with leftovers, so there's a 1/2" layer c) Cook on Medium heat until golden on the bottom, then flip and do the same on the other side d) I also added chopped sliced jalapenos as it was cooking on the 1st side (to taste - just to give it wang, but my husband likes it with more japs) e) when it's cooking on side b, butter the other side of the skillet and cook an egg or two on that side. f) place mixture onto a plate, then the eggs on top of that oh-my-gosh! :)
