Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
I have been making a recipe very similar to this for many years and my kids LOVE it. My family doesn't like mushrooms, so I don't add the can of mushrooms. (They don't fuss about the mushroom soup anymore, but when they were younger I would blend the soup to get rid of the chunks.) I usually fill the soup can about 3/4 full of milk instead of using water, and sometimes throw in a chunk of butter just to round everything out. Also, I always make this in the crockpot instead of baking. That way I can use a cheaper cut of beef and it's ready to eat when I walk in the door from work. (I cook it about 8 hours on low using chuck instead of sirloin.)

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
I made this last night for dessert and it was SO good. Reminded me of the apple crisps my Mom used to make. I did add a little fresh nutmeg into the crumble and also on top. Great recipe!

Hot Dog Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2012
I make a sauce very similar to this one. Never thought about putting the meat into a food processor. I use a pastry cutter (like you would use for pie crusts). Easier to wash than all the food processor parts :)

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
Yummy! I used about 2 Tb of butter and a few swirls of EVOO. Also, I used unsalted cashews and low sodium soy sauce and thought it was fine, no extra salt needed. For my one head of broccoli, I could have cut the sauce in half and it would have been fine. It didn't go to waste though. I dipped my steak in the extra sauce which was tasty.

Pork Chops with Delicious Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
I have made this dish 3-4 times before this evening. It has always been good, and my rating is based on the recipe as written. As others have suggested, I also recommend at least doubling the sauce. When I made it tonight, I did a couple things differently. First of all, I generously seasoned both sides of the chop with season salt. On one side I also seasoned with black pepper, then on the other I seasoned with ground chipotle pepper. It gave the dish a subtle little kick. I added a little season salt to the sauce too. Next, I used chicken stock to deglaze the pan. I also added some throughout the simmering to keep the sauce from getting too thick. This was easily the best version of this dish I've made to date.

Peanut Butter Cup Grilled Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
This was good, but I prefer to use Nutella in place of the chocolate chips. I think it's a better flavor. We will often put PB and Nutella on english muffins for a quick breakfast. The kids love to think they are eating peanut butter cups for breakfast :)

Garlic Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
I've been making this for years, just slightly different. I brown butter then add a Tb or 2 of EVOO. Take off the heat and toss in the garlic for a minute or two, then pour over the pasta. Lately, I've been adding a couple handfuls of baby spinach to the mix once I take it off the heat. Once it's wilted, I toss with the pasta. I've gotten my 3 VERY finicky (sp?) kids to eat it .. but not with the spinach. I'm working on it though :)
