Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
This is the best potato soup I have had! I added 3 cloves of garlic, increased celery to 6 stalks, and added 1/2 of chopped red onion. **This is now in our regular rotation and i've found it's even better if you add in 2 Bay leaves! MMM!

Long Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
This soup was easy to make and pretty good. We added 7 large fresh mushrooms (thinly sliced), 3 serrano peppers (for heat), 3 cloves of garlic, and extra cabbage. Instead of decreasing noodles as other reviewers suggested, we increased the amount of chicken broth and added 1 TBS fish sauce and increased soy sauce to about 4 TBS. This made the soup much more flavorful.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Instead of dried currants/raisins, I made cinnamon scones by adding 1 tsp cinnamon to the dough and then sprinkling cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top of scones right before baking. Also reduced the butter to 4 TBS. My husband doesn't have a sweet tooth and he loved them because they weren't too sweet and were light and moist. We will be making this recipe again with other variations.

Amazing Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Fantastic! We are Americans living in the UK for the next year and they use mayo in EVERYTHING including their shrimp sauce.... When we couldn't find red shrimp sauce anywhere, I decided to make it myself. My husband raves about it and says when we return to the states we will never resort to store bought sauce again. Super easy and very tasty! Added some tabasco since we like the flavor in our shrimp sauce and used to add it back home, but aside from that followed recipe exactly.

Tuna Noodle Casserole III

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Per other reviews, added an additional soup can of milk and 2 TBS sour cream and i'm glad I did because it was just the right consistency. I skipped the butter. Added an extra can of tuna, 1/3 cup red onions, 1 cup of frozen peas, 3 cloves of garlic, sea salt, & course black pepper. Cooked for 10 minutes, stirred, and covered with crushed croutons and parmesan and cooked for an additional 10 minutes. This was pretty good for a basic casserole dish!

French Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Very easy dressing to make. I used this to top a taco salad I had made. I added a couple drops of hot pepper sauce to ours. My husband and I both enjoyed it!

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
MMM...My husband and I both loved this. We added chalula, tobasco, 1 TBS chili powder, and increased the amount of vegetables. We doubled the chicken broth and still would have liked it a little more soupy next time. Next time we will add shrimp.

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
My husband and I agree, this will go into regular rotation. Instead of a rotisserie chicken I boiled 3 large chicken breasts in the broth/water for 20 minutes and then removed and shredded the chicken w/ a fork. Added 2 serano peppers for heat and 3 cloves of garlic. Also reduced the olive oil to 1 TBS to sautee the vegetables along with some spray olive oil (worked great). We didn't have fresh parsley so I used 3 sprigs of fresh basil. Next time I will make more broth as it wasn't soupy enough for our taste. Wonderful recipe!

Country-Style Grilled Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
These ribs are amazing! You have to add water when you are baking them or they will get dry. We increased the amount of hot pepper sauce to 1/2 teaspoon and it was perfect amount of spiciness for us (we like all things hot) but it also didn't overpower the flavor. The sauce is to die for!

Quick and Easy 20-Minute Chicken Posole

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
Very flavorful but rather than slice the olives, next time I will cut them even smaller to spread out the olive flavor.

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
This was good, we made it for 2 though and next time I would make more of the sauce to coat the eggs. Loved the lemon, loved the dijon, and green onions are awesome additions!

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
This is quite tasty. We like to add a serano pepper to add a little heat to it. Love lots of mushrooms, you can't have too many.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
Wow! So tender and delicious! This was my first time making lamb and it was perfect. The only thing I would have changed is to cover it with foil so that the top didn't char. Aside from that-delicous!

Irish Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
I thought this was a tasty stew recipe but my husband wasn't a fan. We added an onion, extra potato, and the leftoever leg of lamb from easter. I would recommend it to most people, i think my husband just doesn't like stew in general.

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
These were quite tasty and moist pork chops, next time I think I will add some extra spice to the cracker mixture though.

Pleasing Potato Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
This recipe was good but next time I will make a few changes. I did bake the potato crust for 20 min. before adding the filling and it still could have baked longer for a crisper bottom crust. I substituted sausage for the ham and added green peppers and some hot sauce and paprika.It tasted really good but I would add some extra spices next time to spice it up for our liking. Thanks for the breakfast recipe-it was a great Easter breakfast for us!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
This recipe was amazing! My husband and I both loved it and it was easy to make. I made a few changes. I added an extra can of chicken broth, 2 cloves of garlic, and a carrot, which I cooked w/ the celery and onion. I boiled the chicken breasts in the broth for 15 minutes and then shredded the chicken and added it back into the soup right before I added the dumplings. We prefer the shredded chicken in a soup. I will definetely make this again.
