Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
OK, I was sucked in by the gorgeous photo and the fact that my family loves bacon. However, we were disappointed by this recipe. The bacon takes so long to cook on the grill that the corn is then overdone. The bacon does not stay on the corn as you're eating it and just gets in the way, so I pulled mine off - which kind of defeats the whole purpose. Finally, we just didn't care for the flavor combo. We'll stick with bacon on our burgers and in our baked beans.

Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
Unfortunately, I am one of the few in the minority with this recipe. Although the cheesecake tasted good, after 45 minutes in the oven, it still jiggled - a lot - but I followed the directions, turned off the heat, and left the oven door open. It did firm up somewhat in the fridge but was very mushy. I was never able to get it off the bottom of the springform pan and thus just served it on the pan. Could not get a good "slice," of course. Oh, and during baking, oil from the butter and cream cheese oozed all over the bottom of my oven and smoked up the entire house.

Turkey Tetrazzini a la Stouffers®

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
I made this recipe to use up leftovers, so mine contained chicken instead of turkey. I have never eaten Stouffer's Turkey Tetrazzini and thus had no way to compare, but I was very surprised to see a tetrazzini recipe without parmesan cheese. The flavor was OK, but the dry bread crumbs on top were a flop. I would recommend using buttered bread crumbs or - even better - parmesan cheese.

Tilapia Scampi

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
I liked the recipe and will make it again, but I would recommend two changes. First, I thought it needed a little salt. Second, make sure to check the fish carefully because mine was done in only 20 minutes.

Rita's Roasted Peach Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
I thought this salsa was tasty, but it turned out too mushy/runny with cooked tomatoes. I would make it again but would not roast the tomatoes - only the other veggies and the peach.

Roast Adobo Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
Very quick, easy, and delicious! I used another reviewer's suggestion to use 1 T. of chili powder and 1 T. of paprika, and that was plenty spicy for our family. We poured the juices over the meat and mashed potatoes. Will definitely make again!

Buffalo Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
Excellent! I used a combo of water and chicken broth and added more buffalo wing sauce. I then topped the soup with bleu cheese sprinkles. Delish!

Simple Savory Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
I used a 3-lb. pork roast but doubled the spices and mixed them with two cans of cream of chicken soup. I wrapped the roast in foil with carrots, onion, and celery, and topped the meat & veggies with the soup mix. The meat took two hours this way rather than one, but the whole house smelled wonderful, and the end result was a tender, tasty meal that I served with mashed potatoes. Voila! Instant gravy!

'Chinese Buffet' Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
Wow - I love any recipe that makes my entire family happy, and this one fit the bill! We tend to like our green beans a little softer than the ones you get in Chinese restaurants, so I boiled them for a bit before sautéing them. I also omitted the soy sauce since some reviewers complained about the saltiness. They beans turned out perfectly for us!

Zesty Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
This dish had a very nice flavor but was a tad too oily - would agree with the previous reviewer who suggested halving the olive oil. Since I served this dish during colder weather, my kids said they would have preferred it warm, so next time I may substitute canned, diced tomatoes for the grape tomatoes and serve it warm.

Wine and Dijon Marinated Pork Loin

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I wish I could give this recipe more stars because I had high hopes for it and thought the flavor showed promise. However, my family did not like it at all - thought the marinade was way too salty and overpowered the pork. I think the bouillon, wine, and lemon juice would be adequate; no need to add salt. Although I would be willing to try the recipe again with this adjustment, my family is adamantly opposed, so I guess the recipe is a one-timer for us.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Previous reviewers mentioned two main complaints with this recipe: (1) too bland, and (2) too cheesy, so I made some modifications. I cooked six slices of bacon and then used a little of the grease to saute the onions, a couple cloves of garlic (new addition), and a bag of fresh spinach. I salted and peppered to taste rather than measuring and added the crumbled bacon to the quiche. I also used cheese that I had on hand - a combo of white cheddar and mozzarella - and although I did not measure, it probably came to less than three cups. My vegetarian daughter refused to eat the quiche because of the bacon, but the rest of us enjoyed it.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This recipe was so easy, tasty, and tender! Since some reviewers complained about the sweetness, I eliminated the sugar altogether (kept the ketchup). Others suggested doubling the spices and flavorings, so I decided to just add everything to taste. The family loved the results!

Becel® Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
This was a good, solid recipe. I used real butter because I am a butter snob and probably 1/2 t. of rosemary instead of 1 t. (did not measure). I also added a little salt. The cooking time was longer for me - probably a full hour - even though I used a food processor to slice the potatoes thinly. My family enjoyed the dish.

Mexican Baked Fish

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
Quick and easy recipe, and everyone in the family ate it! I didn't have salsa, so I substituted enchilada sauce. Did not measure ingredients - just poured on the sauce, sprinkled with cheese, and tossed some crushed corn chips on top. Yum!

Mema's Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
I have tried out various corn fritter recipes this summer, and this is far and away the best! I substituted the kernels from two ears of leftover corn on the cob and gluten-free Bisquick but otherwise made as directed. Delicious, and the fritters held together really well!

Smokin' Jack BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
Excellent, smoky-sweet flavor! I halved the recipe and used some with a pork roast in the slow cooker. I served the additional sauce on the side but still have plenty left for another recipe.

Shrimp, Sausage, and Fish Jambalaya

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
My husband is a big jambalaya fan, and this recipe turned out perfectly. I often have problems getting the rice to cook correctly in my usual recipe, but I agree with the reviewer who described this dish as "creamy." I did not have shrimp on hand, so I used 1-1/2 lb. of cod instead of 3/4 lb. My husband didn't care, as long as he got his andouille sausage! The spice level was perfect for my kids, but if you like it hot, you may want to kick it up a notch.

Chef John's Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
My family has been trying a lot of different salmon recipes recently - and liking them - but unfortunately, this was a thumbs down from all. We just didn't care for the flavor combo. The texture of the fish was perfect, though.

Skillet Picante Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
My family enjoyed this dish enough for me to make it again. I omitted the mushrooms and subbed ground turkey for ground beef. I also subbed salsa for the picante sauce since that's what I had on hand and topped the dish with shredded cheddar. Not very stroganoff-y, but tasty nonetheless.
