Zucchini Skins

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
This was absolutely delicious. My guess is the poor reviews come from reviewers overcooking the zucchini during the boiling process - which would cause it to taste soggy as they report. I pre-boiled the water, dropped the zucchini in, boiled them steady for 2 minutes, then turned off the heat and let them sit in the water for the remaining 3. They were perfect!... flexible, yet still firm. Then, I brushed with oil, sprinkled with pepper and put under the broiler 5 minutes. I stuffed each zucchini generously per the directions, and put under the broiler one minute. The topping was browned, the cheese melted, and it was crispy on top, perfectly warm in the middle and the zucchini was perfect. No soggy-ness whatsoever. Fanstastic. What we loved most was that they were a refreshing take on stuffed potato skins without the heaviness of the starch and gritty-ness of potatoes and skins! We gave this a 5 out of 5. This is a definite keeper. Love it, and thanks for the recipe!

Cioppino

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
There is only one way to say it... phe·nom·e·nal!!! I loved this. Made a few modifications, and it was still DELICIOUS! I used Halibut instead of Cod, substituted clams for mussels (not a fan), and added a lot of extra spices - including seasalt and heavy cracked pepper. Served with a crusty green olive loaf of bread, and it was a 10+++. No kidding - try this - we will definitely make this again! :-)

Stuffed Filet Mignon Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
DELICIOUS!!! We *LOVED* these! For me, they were a little tough to cook appropriately on the BBQ, but I'm BBQ challenged. I think I'll broil them next time - I had trouble cooking them evenly, but it was entirely user error. Absolutely phenomenal recipe. Fantastic taste, and pretty presentation! YUM!!!

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Delicious and SIMPLE. I used Spicy Sausage (as opposed to sweet), and it was very spicy and delicious. Definitely will make it again - it's going in my favorite recipes book!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Fabulous! Did it exactly as the recipe stated. When I made the sandwiches, I spread the bread with a combo horseradish/sour cream mix, added fresh (raw) onions, topped with whole green chilies, then smoked gouda cheese and put them under the broiler to melt. They were phenomenal. Best french dip sandwiches we'd ever had. The sauce makes wonderful au jus! The smoked gouda, raw onions and green chilies topped it off for a fabulous lunch-time meal! Definitely a keeper.

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Wow! Phenomenal cookies - delicious peanut butter flavor. Definitely a keeper. Its much easier to make these cookies if the dough is chilled. I kept mine in the refridge between preparing each cookie sheet.

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Yum! Both my husband and I loved this recipe. Super simple to make, cooks perfectly, and has beautiful presentation on the plate. The taste was fantastic, although we may cut down on the parsley a little next time. We did it exactly per the instructions, and the recipe was perfect. Definitely a keeper - thanks!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
YUM! These are fantastic cookies! I made these cookies for my husband (as I'm not a sweet fan), but these cookies were SSSOOO good - I'm now a huge fan, and have eaten several of them! Perfect in every way. The only thing I did was add a little nutmeg and chopped pecans. NUM - and they cooked perfectly. Definitely a 5* keeper in our house!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
FANTASTIC! I altered the recipe for our tastes (used cooked bacon, one finely chopped jalapeno, and chopped mushrooms). I also used a mixture of feta and gouda cheese (which is what I had on hand), and it was absolutely delicious. I loved other reviewers idea of using a muffin pan and it worked GREAT for my husband and I (there are only two of us), which made packaging them for leftovers a breeze. Thanks reviewers - what a great idea, and thanks to the submitter for a total keeper of a recipe! Love it! A+++

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Woohoo! This chili helped me win the coveted Hottest Chili award at our chili cook-off! Everyone loved it. It has a great balance of flavors, has complexity and appealed to a wide variety of tastes. I didn't change a thing - I only added extra jalapenos for my personal taste. A+

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Holy Schmacks! I'm a harsh critic and was certain I wouldn't rate this 5*, but there was no way I could not. This recipe is phenomenal! Absolutely a hit - both of us had seconds, and ate too much. Just because I had it on hand, I added a cup of barley (the recipe did not need it), I just need to use it - it added a nice texture and didn't harm the flavor at all. Next time, I will add more ham (again, not because the recipe needs it), but who doesn't love more ham? ;-) Absolutely a 100% keeper - we're putting it in our all time favorite soup collection. Thanks for the GREAT recipe.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
OMG - YUM! This is JUST like Kentucky Fried Chicken coleslaw. I will never buy coleslaw from our grocery store deli again - because this recipe is SIMPLE to make and phenomenal in taste! The ONLY modifications I made is to the split the 2/3 C. of creamy salad dressing with half Mayo and half Salad Dressing (Miracle Whip), and added 1/2 tsp. of celery seed, in addition to the poppy seed it called for. Oh, also I only used 1/4 C. of sugar - figured I could add more later - but I didn't need too - 1/4 C. was MORE than enough. Just right!!! Unless you like super sweet cole slaw, I recommend cutting down the sugar! Well worth time/effort and great for any occassion! Thanks for the great recipe!

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Delicious! This is extremely flavorful and a great option for breakfast. I used frozen obrien potatoes with green/red peppers and onions, and Italian sausage. The only thing I would do next time is reduce the amount of butter by half. Other than that, a really delicious dish.

Coconut Tilapia with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
YUM! This is a great recipe for Tilapia, which tends to be a very mild and somewhat bland fish. My family is not a fan of main dishes that are sweet, but the coconut on the fish and the spicy/sweet of the side sauce is the perfect compliment to this recipe. We will definitely be keeping this in our 5* recipes for Tilapia!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Planned to take this to a St. Patricks Day party at work, and everyone loved it - said it was the best Corned Beef they'd ever had! I did make one modification to the recipe - I used 1/2 c. of brown sugar instead of a full cup because I really don't care for sweet meat. The 1/2 c. turned out to be perfect, and the Guinness taste was more prominent! LOVED IT!!!

Boston Iced Tea

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Very good iced tea! Nice change to plain iced tea, this recipe gives just enough sweetness without being over-powering. I agree with other reviewers, you can experiment with this recipe and try other juices. It's still outstanding! Thanks for a great recipe!

Clams Italiano

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
FABULOUS. Absolutely loved it. I also used 1 tablespoon of red pepper flakes, and it was PERFECT. I usually use Scott Ure's Clams from this site, but I think this recipe is definitely better. The only change I made was to add 2 tablespoons of chopped garlic. Unlike other reviewers, I think the red pepper flakes and 2 cups of white wine is perfect for this recipe - it makes a GREAT dipping sauce for crispy bread like Pugliese, Olive bread or Rosemary bread! Bon appetit - this is phenomenal... thanks for the recipe!
