Flank Steak with Garlic Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2002
Yum, yum, yum! We all LOVED this. I didn't find it tough at all. It's important to slice thinly against the grain. Very easy too.

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2002
These are a great timesaver. They tasted good, however a little dry in my opinion . . . in spite of my addition of about 1/2 cup of milk. I used Idaho potatoes. Will try again with red or yukon gold tators. I might try less sour cream and more butter as well.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2002
Definately a dish you can be creative with. No fresh basil so used dry basil and added fresh Italian parsley. Oregano or sage would be good too. Used olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Great fall side dish. Can be made ahead. Reheat in microwave then add cheese, olives and herbs.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2002
Not my type of recipe for ribs. For some reason I can't seem to perfect a recipe for ribs so I tried this. It's getting too cold to hang out by the grill all day! Smelled great, good flavor, but too much like pot roast. I did rub the ribs with a bbq rub first. We like ribs that are a litte crisp on the outside and moist inside. Maybe if we finished cooking them on the grill?

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2002
Very easy and good. I used white beans (2 cans) instead of potatoes. I also added parm cheese. Would be good with a little grated carrots and/or minced celery.

Lemon Pepper Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2002
Very easy, quick, and tasty addition to veggies. My 17-year old said "awesome". I used a little less lemon pepper then called for and added regular pepper and salt. Would be good with a number of veggies. Next time I'm trying broccoli.

Pork Chops a la Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2002
My husband said the same exact thing and I made notes on the recipe card . . . it melted in his mouth. I first made this last winter and also used cream of chicken soup. Saved some of the seaonings and added it to the soup. Served over rice. Great busy day meal.

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2002
Big hit. Cut the regular salt in half and used garlic instead of garlic salt. Nice change from the plain butter, salt and pepper routine. Would be a great company dish.

Barbecue Beef Cups

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2002
Easy and fun for kids to help make. My Mom gave me this recipe after she made it for my kids years ago, to their rave reviews. They loved it then, and now at 17 and 19 they still ask for it. We put 1 Tablespoon brown sugar in the meat mixture. To make them a little more meaty use a full lb. ground beef. If the mixture seems dry I often add more BBQ, we always use regular refrigerated flaky biscuits, fresh onions and maybe a little more cheese.

Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Rice)

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2002
Family liked it. Smelled great. Kept thinking it would be good with ham or sausage, or even cooked ground beef instead. Wouldn't be as healthy but, oh well.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2002
These were great. I made my own ground beef filling(a piccadillo type). I loved the idea of oven baked chimi's. Haven't had a chimi in years cuz I'm aways trying to cut fat grams. Excellent compromise. Topped with lower fat sour cream, red onions,and my homemade salsa. Also excellent using the "Charley's slow cooker Mexican style meat" found on this site. Great to freeze (assemble and freeze individually b4 brushing on butter) to have on hand for busy days.

Grilled Chicken with Herbs

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2002
Great light tasting summer meal. Always looking for ways to utilize all the herbs in my garden. Used less vinagar (I used sherry vinegar) and more olive oil). Will do again.

Cooking Light magazine's Indian Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2002
Sorry but we did not enjoy at all. I decreased the potatoes by about a pound, added more chicken, doubled the spices(and my spices are fresh) . . . and still my family was commenting on not enough chicken, too much potatoes and not enough seasoning - in spite of my endless tweaking. I LOVE to cook, and have been experimenting with Indian recipes for a few years. I should of known, 2 1/2 pounds of potatoes and rice? I guess I liked the idea of the seasoning mix. Won't be making this again!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2002
Yummy. The secret is to not use too hot of a hot sauce. Louisiana style hot sauce is great. I was lucky enough to just have been south and while there picked up some "Crystal" hot sauce which worked perfect.

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2002
My family LOVED this. I, of course, tweaked the recipe because I always do. Added some white wine, chicken broth, celery, onions and garlic to the poaching liquid. Instead of reserving 3 cups of that liquid, I strained it and then reduced it to 3 cups. Added peas and extra seasoning (pepper, chicken broth granules, bay leaf, marjoram) to the dish after I added the canned soup (1 can cream of celery, 1 can cream of chicken - both reduced fat). Delicious!!!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2002
I love to cook and find it difficult to find slow cooker recipes that I like. This was excellent. I added a pinch of salt, plenty of pepper and probably doubled the amount of Worcestershire, and doubled the amount of meat. Plenty of tasty sauce with a perfect consistency. My teenage daughter said it was one of her favorite meals that I have made. I might try browning the meat next time to add the pan juices and carmelized flavor to the dish.

Skyline Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2002
Definately add the chocolate. I also cut the amount of cinnamon in half. No need to put in blender. The authentic way to make Cincinnati chili is to get the leanest ground meat possible and simmer it till brown (trust me!) in the water stirring occasionally. This will break down the meat into the fine texture desired. After the meat is browned add the rest of the ingredients. I leave out the steak sauce and add a pinch of powdered clove. If it's not thick enough just boil it down more or do as we do in Cincinnati and add oyster crackers to soak it up!
