Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
Excellent fried rice. I made as directed, except had to make fresh rice. The flavor was all there and it was easy to make. I probably got a little too much oil in my rice, because that was a little soft, but still excellent. Will definitely make again. Thanks SemiG!

Wild Rice Soup V

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
EXCELLENT soup. This is a very easy to make and thick, luxurious soup. The only changes I made was adding a little pepper and also a cup or two of water, to thin it a little. Very thick as written, of course, maybe was too generous with the carrots and ham? Regardless, very good and we will make it again.

Tex-Mex Migas

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
Excellent recipe for a Tex-Mex breakfast. I added in some diced onions and omitted the chips, because I didn't have any on hand. A definite keeper. Thanks!

Bacon and Caramelized Onion Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
I forgot to add in the cheese before rolling these up, but I did top with a little cheese and these were really good as is. Next time I make these, the cheese will add even more. I added in garlic to my onions and smoked paprika to the flour mixture, because I didn't have smoked cheddar. I was looking for a roll to go with grilled type food and these are the perfect fit. Thanks!

Pork Loin Stuffed with Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
Excellent tasting loin. I followed the recipe as written except that I increased the amount of the stuffing. I also made one vertical cut and then horizontal cuts going out each way from that so that more stuffing would fit. It looked like an inverted capital T when I was done. I did have an issue of this loin being too dry when I served it, but I believe that was my fault by slicing too soon prior to eating. In spite of that, I will make again. I may try a brine prior to stuffing to help with some of the moisture retention. Thanks for a great tasting and nice looking loin.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
Very good and easy to make pita shells. I proofed my yeast and used a stand mixer, but followed the basic recipe as written. Will use again. Thanks.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2013
Very good easy to make buns. Probably a bit heavier than I'm used to, but still very good. I made subs with this recipe.

Creamy Garlic and Onion Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2013
Excellent. I followed the recipe exactly, but did have to simmer longer than the recipe said to get the results I needed. No biggy. We are not "cooking with wine" people, but I try periodically to learn. This recipe helped me learn and I was pleased with the results. This is only my second success story with wine. We will make again. Perhaps we will top it with a grilled chicken or shrimp. Thanks for the great recipe.

Popa's Pickled Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I'm a huge pickled anything fan and I wasn't disappointed in this recipe. Super easy to make and a good use for your eggs that are getting a little long on fresh. I did not vary a bit from the recipe except that I did a dozen eggs and used quart jars, 6 in each. Oh, and I've never ever seen white wine vinegar in my store, so I was forced to use red wine vinegar. The funny part to me was that even though I loved the eggs, I did not like the brine. Usually in these recipes, I love the brine so much that I can drink it. But that will not stop me from making this again. I think next time I will increase the vinegar and decrease the water so that I have an even more intensive pickled flavor in the eggs. Thanks bd for a great recipe!

Roast Beef Cooked In Pasta Sauce.(Italian Style)

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
I had reviewed this earlier, but the review got lost. But as I recall, I loved the flavor and uniqueness of this dish. I used a potato masher to slightly crush the carrots, etc., because even though I like the blended flavors, I also like the flavors on their own. This way I get a bit of both. Thanks Manella for the nice dish.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
Very good and I will definitely make again with a couple of additions. I added about 1/4 cup of onion, 8 or 9 drops of Tabasco sauce and 1/2 teaspoon of Sriracha sauce. I really don't think the roasting of the garlic is a necessary step and could as easily be done by mincing the garlic and adding to the rest of the mixture and baking. I also used the full 8oz block of cream cheese. We served with beer bread and I had about 50/50 comments about those who preferred beer bread with it and those that preferred chips.

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
It was ok. I really does serve a ton of people, but mostly because people try it once or twice, and they are done with it. I think maybe cutting the whipped cream in half and adding cinnamon and vanilla would help, but honestly, I just don't see me making this again.

Hot Italian Giardiniera

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
LOVE this. I'm a huge pickled/vinegar fan. I can eat a jar of pickles in a sitting. This satisfies my cravings, without all the salt that most pickles, etc., have. I upped the vinegar by about 1/4 of a cup and added about 1/2 cup of water to help cover, but decreased the oil by 1/2 cup. After making this, I don't mind the oil in it, but I'm not convinced that it adds a lot, so I will further decrease it to 1/4 cup the next time I make this. I didn't dice, but prepared this as finger food. Load up a bowl and eat this all by itself - yummy. Thanks!

Stuffed Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to give it a shot. I did not follow exactly. My major deviance was that instead of the traditional sweet sauce topping, like this recipe calls for, I went with only the gravy as a topper - meat, taters and gravy. Who can't love this? My taters got a little too loose, but were definitely there and very distinct. I loved the whole dish together. No sides were needed, as they were included. Thanks for a great one SemiG.
