Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
Awesome recipe! I made my first batch using my garden zucchini and hubby said two loaves were gone in 10 minutes at his job. Requests are coming in for more!

Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
These were awesome! I was making burgers for dinner and didn't have any buns. I made this recipe, poured them on top of the burgers and ate them with a fork and knife. I didn't miss the bun at all and actually enjoyed this much more. I did add a little extra onion but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Good-bye hamburger bun....I don't need you any more! I can't wait to try these on a nice steak! Thanks for the recipe!

Mushroom Cube Steaks

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
Quick and very tasty. My husband and I both enjoyed it. Will definitely make again. I did deglaze the pan with a little red cooking wine as a few reviews suggested.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
This was delicious and so easy to make! Made it just as the recipe said and it was perfect. I am going to try this same thing with asparagus too. I'm betting it's just as good as the broccoli!

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
This was very good. I haven't read the reviews but next time I will add a little more garlic. Both hubby and I enjoyed this dish.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Very disappointed in this recipe. Way too dark and way too much filling for a 9" pan - it grew at least 2" out of the pan and looked like a muffin top. After 1 1/2 hours sitting in the oven it already had 3 massive cracks in it too so I took it out. I will not make this one again.

Peppercorn-Seasoned Steaks with Mustard-Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
We enjoyed this recipe. I prefer seasoning a steak while preparing it like this recipe instead of marinating it. Some marinades I have been trying are so overbearing that you only taste marinade and can't even tell you are eating steak any more! Next time I will probably only use half the mustard but that is just a personal preference. It was delicious.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
This was delicious and easy to make. One of the girls at my husband's job gave him a bag of fresh blueberries. I sent her back some of this after I made it and she immediately asked for the recipe.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I've made this twice now since I have had more peppers coming out of the garden then I know what to do with. The meat filling is so good my husband said I can just make the middle and pour it over more white rice with sauce and he would love it! The only change I made was to add regular tomato sauce over the peppers instead of the tomato soup.

Grilled Rib Eye Steaks

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
This marinade had a nice flavor but was too strong for us. We couldn't even taste the steak any more. I marinated it for 7 hours. Maybe if I marinated it only for an hour we would have liked it better.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
One night I was making sloppy joes and realized I only had one can of mix but needed two. Instead of running to the store I popped on here to see if I had all the ingredients on hand to make it from scratch. We all enjoyed this so much I sent my daughter home with the can I did have. I won't be buying those any more! What a much better flavor and great use for my garden peppers!

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I've made this several times now. It's the first recipe my daughter made when moving out on her own. I usually eat my meatloaf with ketchup so I really love the flavor of the topping.

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
My family loves this soup! I have made it several times and just realized I never rated it. I like changing it up with regular or spicy Italian sausage. I always tend to overcook the potatoes or maybe I slice them to thin but it still tastes delicious!

Herb-Crusted Chuck Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Wow...definitely one of my new favorites. It made a less expensive cut of meat turn into something spectacular. I have only bought chuck roasts a couple of times as I much prefer a nice ribeye, but in these difficult times I have been starting to shop much more carefully and buying only meats on sale. Since finding this site it is so easy to find great ways of preparing foods I haven't really made before. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this dish came out. The horseradish dressing really made this dish spectacular! I hope chuck roasts go on sale again REAL soon! :o)

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
This was delicious! As I read in another review I was looking for a recipe to use my Easter ham bone so I simmered that instead of using the chicken broth. The only complaint from my family was that I didn't make enough!

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
WOW! This was delicious. Our entire family enjoyed it. It was very easy and quick to make. I threw it over thin spaghetti. It was perfect as it was. I will definitely try this one with scallops and veggies for a meatless variety. Thanks for the recipe!

Grilled Scallop Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
WOW...my new favorite salad! I made a few substitutions (because of what was available to me). The store only had bay scallops so I used those and just added a few more to the quantity. Since I was scaling the recipe for one I didn't want to turn on the grill. I just broiled the mushrooms and scallops in the oven for about 10 minutes. I also don't have a toaster oven so I just broiled the walnuts for about 3 minutes and I used a bag of mixed baby lettuces since I had it on hand. I made a balsamic vinaigrette dressing from this site a few days ago and used that. The flavors from all the ingredients blended so nicely together. I should have made more because my daughter's boyfriend smelled it cooking and I ended up having to share it with him. He had already eaten too! :) The olive oil and soy sauce gave the scallops such a nice flavor. The salad looked beautiful too. This is a great choice to make when having a friend over for a light healthy lunch. Thanks for sharing! I might just have to run back out to the store tomorrow for some more scallops!
