Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I soaked the bread crumbs as suggested and added a few dashes of Worcestershire, but other than that -- followed the recipe exactly. My husband and son said it was good, but not great. I think it is probably very good for a turkey meatloaf, but I will probably stick to regular meatloaf. 11/17/09 I made this again tonight and soaked the bread crumbs with the milk and egg and added in the carrot. That suggestion made this so much better that I had to change my rating to reflect that.

Crispy Mashed Potato Pancake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Great post-Thanksgiving way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. I followed the advice of gapch1026 and added scallions and flour as well as chopped garlic. Came out great and was easy as well.

Hot Dog Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Really easy to make so that's a bonus! Had a lot of hot dogs in the freezer and it's the end of the month so I decided to make hot dogs. Saw this recipe and thought I would give it a try. Only had two potatoes so I used some leftover french fries from the night before. Instead of green beans I used peas. Instead of chicken broth I used a bouillon cube (beef, chicken, pork) for a nice rounded out taste. Lastly, instead of tomato sauce, I used what was left of a jar of spaghetti sauce and a jar of salsa to make 8 oz. Those alterations might have resulted in a different soup than the original, but it was well received and I could see a child really enjoying it.

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
An incredibly easy to follow and came out so GOOD! I used chipotle seasoned kielbasa, a purple pepper (that's what I had on hand), salsa instead of the canned tomatoes, and cajun seasoning -- all recommendations from a previous poster and what a great result - see my picture! It took me no time to prepare and it was a hit. This is an easy dish that will have everyone thinking you worked far harder on it than you actually did. Thanks for a great recipe.

Honey Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
Really easy and quite good! I followed the suggestions to NOT add the beef broth and the water and I am so glad that I didn't. After 4 hours on high, my 4.5 lbs. of ribs were almost covered in their juices. I removed them and put them in a 325 degree oven for 40 minutes, basting occasionally as recommended and turned them over halfway. A very good recipe - thanks!

Texas Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Super easy!!! I am so amazed at how incredibly easy this was and it was a huge hit. I didn't do the BBQ sauce because it was sticky and saucy enough. I ended up with extra rub, which I put into a ziploc bag for a later date. My husband and son loved this recipe and I will absolutely use this again. Followed the recipe to the letter except I did double the cayenne pepper, but don't do this unless you can handle the spice. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

Best Chicken Ever

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
This truly was a great recipe! I used low fat sour cream and half a packet of chili seasoning mix and put the chicken breasts in it to marinate in the refrigerator. I didn't have corn flakes so I used a combination of coating mixture that consisted of crushed items: town house crackers, panko, Italian seasoned bread crumbs, and chow mein noodles. I drizzled olive oil on the baking sheet, but did not drizzle butter on top. Halfway through as others suggested, I turned the chicken over. The better the cut of chicken breast that is used, the better they come out. I had two different kinds and they looked completely different. The ones that were butterflied and could lay out flat did well. The ones that didn't and that I didn't butterfly myself, didn't look as good, but still came out good. For looks, I would choose the butterflied breast. They were moist, but you couldn't guess that sour cream was used at all. Definitely a keeper!

A Firefighter's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
This is now the only meatloaf recipe I use! It is such a hit in our house that I won't bother using anything else! The only variation that I make is that I use meatloaf mix: Pork, veal, and beef. It sets up nicely and doesn't fall apart. It makes a nice sized loaf and of course, that makes for nice meatloaf sandwiches. I use my handy Cuisinart Griddler to make meatloaf quesadillas and meatloaf paninis and the guys couldn't be any happier. Really, really good recipe!

Marinated Veggies

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
This is one of the recipes that you look at and think that you'll try it, but you don't have much expectations about it being anything extraordinary. I couldn't have been more wrong! I used red peppers, baby zucchini, and eggplant and marinated them all day long. I then grilled them inside on my Cuisinart Griddler. My husband loved them and said this is the only recipe I should use when I grill vegetables. Well, I will certainly take that into consideration, but as for me -- it was great, easy, and the marinade permeated the veggies. Great recipe!

Fabulous Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
I halved the recipe with the extra cabbage I had on St. Patrick's Day and used Soy Garden instead of butter to make it vegan. I also added some shredded carrot, thick shreds, to give it a bit more color. It was delicious and I can honestly say that I would add this to more than my St. Patrick's Day recipe box.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
Although I used about half of the mayonnaise and no dill (we don't like it), my husband refers to this as "his" tuna salad and not Barbie's. He requests this for lunch and can't seem to figure out what is in it, but doesn't care because it is his favorite. Great recipe! Try it once and you'll keep on eating it!

Lunch-Box "Handwiches"

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
So good! I used a pizza dough recipe for the bread machine to which I added some fresh garlic. I then used the cheese that I had on hand, which was some Colombian white cheese and the ham. Packed these for lunches for both my husband and son and they were a hit. My son said the kids at school asked where he got it and if it was a Hot Pocket. They looked good and traveled well. I can see so many variations of this recipe and it was easy to prepare. Using the homemade dough was also a bonus. The second time making this I used the dough from the "Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls" and made them smaller into empanadas and baked for about 11 minutes in the oven. Came out great -- see the picture for yourself!

Baked Ham with Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
Delicious! I had a small cooked ham that I used for this recipe. It came with a brown sugar packet and I used that as well as some pineapples for the top. In addition, as suggested I substituted bourbon for the vinegar. I have been married for nearly 15 years and I had no idea that my husband liked ham so much. Maybe it is because I never used this recipe! He devoured it at dinner, I used some to make his breakfast, and he was begging for ham sandwiches. How could I have not known he liked ham? :) Thank you for a great recipe and next time I will omit the brown sugar packet and follow it, but still use the bourbon (one of his favorite ingredients).

Insalata Caprese I

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I had some extra fresh basil from another recipe this week and was trying to think of what I could make. I didn't want to slice tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil and lay them out in something time consuming and fancy for just us and so I found this recipe. I had some mozzarella in the fridge, but next time I will definitely use fresh mozzarella. i also used grape tomatoes as they were on sale and the dish was delicious. Never had it with balsamic before and it was great.

Crab and Swiss Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
Really easy and great! I took the advice of others and added an extra egg and some red pepper flakes. I sauteed a few sliced mushrooms up, adding a bit of salt to get the moisture out and added that with some chopped red pepper and scallions to the mix. I used two 6 oz. cans of crabmeat that I had in my pantry and it came out surprisingly good. My husband and son ate it and both asked for seconds. Who says real men don't eat quiche? I made another one with fresh mushrooms that I sauteed with onions, scallions, cheddar curds (from a previous night's snacking), and a little pan fried pancetta. Because of my additions, I cooked it for 45 minutes and let it sit for 5 minutes, but it really should have sat for 10 minutes to set up. Thanks for a great recipe!

Philly Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
This was super easy and devoured by all. I cheated and used Steak-Umms this time, but I can see using steak. The seasonings make this for sure. We used good hoagie rolls and provolone cheese. Instead of onions and peppers, I used my leftover Guinness St. Patrick's Day mushroom and onion gravy and then topped it with the cheese and popped it under the broiler.

Coriander and Cumin Rubbed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
What can you say about a recipe that is fast and easy and you are sure to have all of the ingredients on hand? This is a perfect little recipe! Took less than a minute to get together and another minute to spread on the boneless cutlets. I let them sit while I waited for my husband to arrive and then pan fried them up. He really is not enthusiastic about pork, but he liked this and I will definitely save the recipe.

Chili con Carne II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
Super yum! I just made this and my husband won't stop trying to sneak more before the Super Bowl. I used one can of kidney beans and one can of chickpeas. I also switched the measurements of chili powder and paprika, making the chili have more chili powder. I also used only 1 stick of cinnamon, reducing as per other users' suggestions and no cloves since I had none on hand. For the three cans of tomatoes, two had jalapenos and one mild chiles. Overall, the consistency and appearance are to die for and will make any chili lover drooling waiting to get some. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Baked Omelet Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
Great recipe! I had plenty of leftover egg whites from making eggnog and so I used 16 egg whites and 4 whole eggs to make this. It made more than what the recipe called for, but it was also lighter. I used ham, red peppers, and sliced tomato on top and poured salsa on before baking. My husband and son loved it and they both had seconds. BTW, I forgot to grease the pan and only realized it after I had put the cheese, onions, black olives, ham, and peppers in the pan. So I simply sprayed the pan with all the items in it and it worked -- nothing stuck to the pan. Simple and delicious!
