Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I probably shouldn't rate this recipe because I made so many changes, but it is a great base recipe to tweak to your own liking. The end result was the best chili I have ever made!! I used 1 lb ground beef and 1 lb sausage to give a little more depth to the flavor. I also followed the advice of others and substituted the tomato juice with tomato sauce and the tomato sauce with diced tomatoes. I didn't realize that I was almost out of chili powder until I had already started the chili, so I only used about 1 T and added hot sauce (tobasco) in place of the rest of the chili powder. I used one can of chili beans (with liquid) and one can kidney beans (rinsed). I followed the rest of the seasonings. It only took about 15 minutes to put together, then I let it simmer for about 2 hours. Served with sour cream, cheese, fresh chopped tomatoes and corn chips. I will make this recipe over and over again. I have never received so many compliments - on anything I have ever made!!

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
YUMMY!!! These were wonderful. Although they did take a long time to make, I was prepared from reading other's reviews. They were totally worth the time they took to make!! Even though they took a lot of time, they were fairly simple to make. I used my hands to stuff the manicotti, which worked great (but a little messy!) I will definately put this on my list to make again. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used beef granules instead of the the chicken because that is all I had. YUM, YUM!!

Southern Living Magazine's Chicken-Fried Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
This was really good! Great comfort food. I wouldn't go as far to say that it is as good as restaurant quality (maybe if I had a deep fryer), but it was quite tasty. The only problem I had was that the coating stuck to the bottom of the pan on the second side. I didn't measure the oil, and maybe I didn't put enough in...that could be my problem. I made the gravy as well, and it took well under 10-12 minutes to thicken up. Probably only 6 or 7.

Asian Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
I put this together to marinate in the morning, planning on cooking it that night. My husband had cravings for something else, so I ended up cooking it the next night. I was worried that it would be over-marinated, but I thought the flavor was perfect. I could still taste the salmon, but the marinade added a nice touch. I followed the recipe except for only doing half the amount of salmon but the full marinade. I did not make the rice, but the salmon was wonderful on it's own!

Soy Ginger Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
This was probably the best salmon I have ever made. I followed the recipe exactly, except for using the salmon filets from Costco. It was my first time broiling salmon, but it came out perfectly and it was so fast to make!! I thought the flavoring was perfect - enough to give it some extra kick, but not too much to over-power the salmon. Served it with the Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes from allreicpes, and it was a wonderful, easy, fast dinner. This one is staying in my recipe box!!

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
I probably would have given this recipe 4 stars, but I left out one (probably important) ingredient. I didn't have any basil, but besides that (and using grape tomatoes instead of cherry) I followed the recipe. I would make these again but I would leave out the sugar. Way too sweet. But it was a wonderful side dish. Very tasty, and if you cut back on the butter, a healthy and tasty way to eat your veggies!

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
It's hard to rate a bread recipe, because a lot depends on how well you, as a cook, can bake bread. I'm not very good at it, but I am practicing, and this was a good recipe for a beginner. I wished I would have cooked mine longer, but that was the only thing wrong with it. It was a little dense for me, but probably because I used all purpose flour instead of bread flour. I will be trying this again to perfect my skills.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
Yummy! This is total comfort food for me. Although it did take some time to make, the end result is fantastic. I followed the recipe exactly, except for doubling the cornstarch/water mixture to make it a bit thicker. I wouldn't change anything else!!!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
So easy and super tasty. It couldn't be any easier. I think the bbq sauce you use could be the big determining factor for this recipe, so make sure to use one that you already know that you like. I put my pork ribs in the slow cooker for about 7 hours on low and it was extremely easy to pull them apart. Served on buns, and was the best pulled pork sandwiches I have ever made at home.

Cheesy Potato Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2006
This was really good and perfect for a cold night. I used velveeta instead of the cheese slices, and used all chicken stock instead of the water. I also doubled the cheese because my husband and I both like it cheesy! Really easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
Delish! This was very simple, and was very tasty. I didn't change a thing, and I thought it was perfect. Many compliments as well.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
Excellent. I didn't use as much hot sauce because my husband doesn't like it really hot, but this was really tasty. I wish I would have read the reviews before I made it and tried the bleu cheese dressing instead of the ranch, but I will do that next time. I wouldn't change a thing besides that!

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
I felt really badly, because I took this to Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws, and no one could stop talking about it!! It stole the attention! I would give this 10 stars if I could. Don't skip out on making the dressing...it's worth the extra 5 minutes it takes to make it. The bottled dressing is not the same. I did cut back on the sugar a tad in the dressing, and I used fresh lemons. But I followed everything else as written. I will be making this salad over and over again!

Sour Cream Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Excellent pie! One of my favorite apple pie recipes. I don't chop the apples, but slice them like a traditional apple pie. I also like to double the crumb topping. My two cents on the crumb topping - I like it to be crumbly, so I do not add any extra butter. When you are combining the ingredients, use a pastry cutter and cut into it until it has turned to fine crumbs. This is more of a crumb topping to me than adding extra butter and leaving it in bigger chunks. Just my opinion, though!

Sour Cream Chive Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
Great bread machine recipe! I used fresh chives, and wished I would have used a lot more because the chive taste was not very strong at all. That is the only thing I would have changed.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
So easy and so tasty! I didn't think these were heavy at all. I didn't knead for 2 minutes - just long enough to incorporate everything together. These are easy enough to make at the last minute. Way better than bisquick, and almost just as fast!

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
This is up in the running for one of my favorite salmon recipes. My husband could not stop talking about it. I followed the recipe exactly except for not using all of the mixture on top of the salmon. I used the extra to serve on the side for dipping as another had suggested. Super easy - the prep time is only about 5 minutes. A perfect meal!

Breadsticks with Parmesan Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
These were excellent. I, too, had to add more flour. I tried to work with it as is, but it was way too sticky to knead. I probably added an extra cup of flour, but they turned out wonderful! Just what I was looking for! I brushed the parmesan butter on the breadsticks as soon as they came out of the oven. The only thing I don't like is that this recipe can't be halved easily. This makes a ton of breadsticks!

Key West Penne

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
YUMM!! This was fantastic. I halved the recipe and still probably got 6 servings out of it - so if you are making the whole recipe, be prepared for a lot! I used half cream and half milk to cut down on the calories, and mixed in a little bit of flour to the milk before adding to make sure it would thicken up. It was very fast and very tasty!
