Hot Asiago and Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
Scaled this down to about 16 servings and made as directed. This was AWESOME! After my hubby's golf game today he brought back a few friends. This was gone in no time. We will be making this again and again for sure. Oh, one buddy who doesn't even like spinach, ate half of it.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
These were actually quite tasty with just a few ingredients. Our buns were more toasted than steamed (unlike the White Castle burgers). These had the WC flavor so next time, I'm going to sprinkle with a little of water and really cover them with foil and see if that helps. Thanks for the post!

Basic Spicy Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Came home from work tonight in a rush what to make for dinner and came across this recipe in my recipe box. Since I had all the ingredients I thought why not give it a try. My daughter is not a fan of spicy foods so I cut the crushed red pepper in half. I used my "Italian seasoning mix 1" from this site. This turned out quick and had a good flavor. I did let it simmer longer than specified which may have helped to tone down the canned taste from the tomatoes. Will be making this one again for sure.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Made this as written and it's pretty bland. Next time, I'm going to melt velveeta cheese into the sauce and pour over the potatoes. Everyone at our party added garlic powder to their plate. It was just missing 1 little ingredient to make this dish a 5. Paired this with "chicken fried chicken" from this site and "Bruce's hot barbecue sauce" from this site.

Bruce's Hot Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This recipe makes a lot of sauce so I halved the recipe. Made as written and it has a lot of ingredients. Instead of simmering it for an hour, I put in my pressure cooker on high and cooked it for 15 minutes. Put into 4 2 cup canning jars and let cool in the fridge. We had company over today and I opened a jar and "everyone" dipped their "chicken fried chicken" from this site into it and said "where did you buy this sauce, It's AWESOME". I ended up giving 2 jars away and plan to make more this coming weekend.

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
I would rate this 10 stars if I could. We fried up a family pack of chicken legs and I made this as written. The coating stays on the chicken and it is so easy to prepare. Hubby and I couldn't wait to try it before our guests arrived. This tastes better than our favorite chicken restaurant and is a lot cheaper too! The aroma of the chicken frying is just incredible. Definitely a winner! Dipped the legs into "Bruce's hot barbecue sauce" from this site, over the top GREAT!

Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Whenever I buy the sweet king rolls they are gone in the blink of an eye, so I used my favorite "skinny buns". Used shredded cheddar cheese, light "real" mayo and omitted the salt. We love our onion and celery in larger "crunchy" pieces instead of finely chopped. This made a very tasty, crunchy and light lunch. My hubby ate his without any bread and just topped the broiled tomatoes and cheese with the tuna mixture. He loved it!

Italian Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
This recipe make a lot so I cut it down by half. Very easy to put together. I use this to make my homemade salad dressings and also in my homemade sauces. It's great sprinkled over chicken and fish. It's great when I can control the sodium content!

Hamburger Sarah Style

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I halved this recipe to get 2 nice burgers, but what I got was a sticky gooey mess that would not set no matter how I tried. I added flour, more flour and still more flour to no avail. These ended up down the garbage disposal and we had soup for dinner. This was a total waste of good ground beef. It was so bad, I couldn't even take a picture.

Oh So Good Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Our pork chops were a cross between chops and steaks. You could really smell the apple cider vinegar while mixing this all together. After just one bite you will be glad you followed the recipe. Next time, I will double the gravy because it does start to crystalize. Paired this with "garlic and herb mashed potatoes" from this site. Great and easy meal without all the fuss.

Garlic and Herb Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
I used 2 large red potatoes because my daughter is not a fan of mashed potatoes. I did not have any crushed rosemary so I added rosemary leaves to the water as I boiled the potatoes. Only used about 3/4 teaspoon of thyme (you could really taste it). The sour cream gave these a really creamy texture. Paired this with "oh so good pork chops" from this site. Topped with the gravy and enjoyed. My daughter had 2 helpings of these potatoes.

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I was only able to marinate our chicken for about 1 hour. I did use a little less of the reduced-sodium soy sauce because it was all I had. Cooked inside on my George Forman grill for 10 minutes. This was so good. Paired this with "Adrienne's Cucumber Salad" also from this site. Perfect light and awesome dinner!

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Cut this one down to 2 servings. Made exactly as directed. Thought it might be too much sugar but went with it anyway. Glad I did because this was the perfect blend of tart and sweet. Used a dill mix from the pampered chef. Paired this with the "pretty chicken marinade" also from this site. Perfect light and awesome dinner.

Gourmet Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
OMG these are wicked! I used a 2 lb. bag of western style hashbrown potatoes thawed, mixed in the onion and melted butter. Heated the soup, sour cream and Velveeta on the stove top until creamy. Poured over the top, stirred and baked covered for 1 hour. Topped with the cheddar cheese and served. There were no leftovers to be found. Next time I will up the onions just for our personal preference.

French Onion Dip From Scratch

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
I halved this recipe just to try it. Used light sour cream and light "real" mayo. Tried it before our guests arrived on a bavarian pretzel piece. Good thing I did because it was extremely salty. I quickly added in more sour cream. Next time I make this, I will totally eliminate the salt.

Fried Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
I can eat breakfast food for any meal of the day. This was so good and way better than using jelly or jam. Hubby always puts ketchup or hot sauce on his eggs so I thought why not try this one. Big hit at our house!

Bachelor's Hash

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
Even with my modifications this was bland, bland and bland. I added garlic powder and green pepper to the ground beef mixture. I figured this was just going to be dry so I added a can of reduced sodium cream of mushroom soup. This really makes a ton so we have quite a lot left over. I'm going to freeze it and make "garbage soup" from this site for another meal.

Emergency Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
This is a great way to use up old hot dog and hamburger buns. I topped ours with shredded cheddar cheese and shredded asiago cheese. Perfect in a pinch!

Used small red potatoes. Punctured with a knife and put in the microwave for 5 minutes. Wrapped in aluminum foil to keep hot. Topped with our favorite toppings of butter, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.

Spicy Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
We halved this recipe for our 2 filet mignons. This has a really great cajun flavor. Be careful, it can be over powering and take away the flavor of a great cut of meat. This would be great mixed into ground beef or sprinkled on french fries too.
