Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
A very similar recipe was given to me by my MIL and I have made this numerous times to rave reviews. The one small change in hers is the addition of toasted (in the oven on 350 for 7-10 min) slivered almonds--like a 1/4 cup or so. Super Delicious!

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I also used frozen meatballs--Homestyle not Italian. 2 lb bag so I doubled the sauce which was easy with 1 16 oz can of jellied Cran, 1 12 oz bottle of Chili Sauce (more like ketchup -not the super hot sauce). I also added about 1 tblsp Worcestershire. After tasting it seemed a bit sweet so I added some heat with about 1/2 tsp Siracha Chili Sauce---still wasn't right so I added about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Chipotle sauce....YUMMY! I am heating the meatballs in the sauce in the crockpot and then chilling until tomorrow for the party to really let the sauce soak into the meatballs. Hubby can't wait!

The Best Chicken Salad Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I thought this was just ok---I did not like the miracle whip as much as I like Mayo with this. I made many changes for our tastes: I always poach the chicken breats and add celery--1-2 stalks, 1/4 of a large onion and slivered toasted almonds. I just toast them in the oven on a cookie sheet. Keep them in the freezer and it takes about 12 minutes until they are toasty on 350. Since I didn't like the taste with the miracle whip I added 1 tblsp home-made curry powder and a couple of tblsp mayo. Hubby loved it this way on toasted Oregon Herb bread with lettuce.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
This is now our Thanksgiving Stuffing every year. Dad and my Hubby love it as do I. I follow the recipe fairly faithfully as far as quantities but... 1. I don't usually add the turkey liver 2. I use Pepperidge Farm sage and onion or Herbed (non cube) style stuffing instead of fresh bread. 3. I have used both Turkey Brats and Jimmie Dean Sage sausage or a combo. Lately I have been making it exclusively with the Dean Sage sausage. 4. Use fresh herbs from the garden (double qty) as we are usually in Florida for Thanksgiving with the folks. 5. Never stuff the turkey but make this in a separate casserole--covered for most of the cooking time and remove the lid so we get a nice crust for the last 15-30 minutes depending on how many servings I have made. The fresh apple, Turkey Sausage, fresh parsley and dried cranberries really combine so beautifully flavor-wise. Delicious with Mom's turkey gravy!

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
This turned out great. I used 1 bag 10 oz of shredded cabbage with carrots and one 10 oz bag of shredded carrots as my hubby prefers carrots over cabbage. I made the dressing as stated and let this sit over night in the fridge. I did add a bit of salt and fresh cracked pepper. We served this with Pulled pork to rave reviews. I will definitely make this again.

Octoberfest German Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This was a very good recipe that I had to tweak a bit as I was trying to recreate my Mom's potato salad. I at first did not add the sugar but this resulted in a too tangy taste so I mixed up a couple of tblsp mayo with the 2 tblsp of white sugar and stirred that in. Perfect----I also added sour cream and did not use the oil---seemed like overkill with the mayo, and Mom never used oil in hers. Topped with fresh chopped parsley. Next time I will add some celery and red onion for a bit more kick.

The Perfect Mai Tai

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I made this over the weekend to RAVE reviews---followed the recipe (almost) exactly. I had thought about leaving the 151 out but after taste tests we all decided it needed the extra oompf! Really super yummy. I buy the Orgeat at my local liquor store and, my one change, used Dole Orange Pineapple juice as a Mai Tai does really need that pineapple flavor for me. juicing the 10 limes resulted in about 1 and1/4 cups lime juice--but I have an electric citrus juicer which makes this much easier---might try Nellies Key lime juice in a pinch.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
11/27/14 - go easy on the cheese - like 1 cup. Add chopped water chestnuts - 1 can. ....I just made this for our Easter dinner. I made several changes based on other reviewers comments. Sauteed the finely chopped onions in a tblsp of butter slowly until they were starting to brown nicely--about 10 min. Then added a couple of cloves of finely minced garlic simmered for about 5 minutes. Added in sour cream, sugar 1/2 tsp salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. Stirred in fresh steamed green beans, all the cheese and some french fried onions. Stuffed this into my round casserole dish and topped with more onions. From the quick taste test I did on the sauce this should be spectacular! Also making scalloped potatoes and Alton Brown's Ham with bourbon, gingersnap, mustard and brown sugar crust. Can't wait! Pecan Pie V from Allrecipes for dessert. Mine and hubby's mouth already watering.

Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
This was pretty good but, of course, I changed it for our tastes. I added 1 tblsp ginger paste, 1 tsp red pepper flakes and I forgot to buy fresh garlic at the store so I used 1-2 tsp garlic powder. I did add the 1 tsp salt but would omit that next time as it was just a squeak too salty for us. I topped this over rice noodles with honey roasted peanuts and coconut flakes. Very Good!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I have made this a couple of times now and my Hubby loves it. I usually have frozen bananas in the freezer and use those mashed into the measure. Leaves some nice banana chunks that way. Very good.

Watermelon Daiquiri

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
I make these all the time and they are absolutely delicious. I don't see how there could be a bitter taste as the other reviewer noted. If you follow the directions you will have a marvelous cocktail. I cut the watermelon into ice cube size chunks and freeze it and then use that in the blender with other ingredients. I have also used Nellie's key Lime Juice instead of fresh but fresh juice is better. Very YUMMY!

Caesar Salad II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I just made this and it does indeed turn out creamy without adding mayo or egg. I crushed about 6 cloves garlic, but started with 3 for a doubled recipe. After taste test I added three more cloves to about 1 cup olive oil, 2 T grey poupon, juice of 1 juicy lemon. By drizzling in a very thin stream when adding the olive oil to the blender, I got a nice creamy dressing. Also didn't have Worchestershire sauce so I used Maggi seasoning. Also added about 12 med sized crushed croutons which really enhanced the whole thing. Very Good!

Broccoli Casserole III

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
12/22/12 - Cook then DRAIN the Broccoli Extremely well or it will be runny!!! Re-evaluating on 12/16/09 - did this with frozen broccoli - almost doubled the broccoli to 36 oz, slightly thawed in the microwave. tossed this with the cheese cubes--used 2 % and regular velveeta 12 oz. Added a few cranks of pepper and freshly grated nutmeg over the top of the broccoli before adding cracker, 48 crackers, topping with about 1/4 cup butter and 2-3 tblsp smart balance. It's in the oven now in two pyrex so I can re-heat tomorrow for the office party.---------- Very easy, very yummy and very rich. Everyone loved the flavor especially the buttery ritz topping!

Chicken Andouille Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
This was delicious! I did make a few changes. I started out with maybe one to two strips of bacon that I chopped up in the pan. Added one med onion (we love onion) and the okra once the bacon had browned a bit. Made the oil and flour in a separate pan and added the stock to that pan then poured it all into my big dutch oven with the bacon, onion, okra mix. then added the rest of the ingredients as listed. I did use orange pepper instead of green and I also added about 1/2 head of green cabbage that I chopped up since I am always trying to get in more veggies. Did not use the File Powder as I didn't have any but did sprinkle in some Wondra Flour towards the end. Also didn't add the tsp of Cayenne, just a sprinkling as the Andouille was spicy and I didn't want to over do the heat. Served over long grain brown rice which I cooked in the remaining chicken stock. Very Good and got rave reviews from guests and hubby.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I also used pre-cooked meatballs and just made the sauce recipe. I did saute some fresh minced onion and fresh minced garlic in some bacon fat until slightly browned. In that same pan I added about 1-2 tsp of chili powder and toasted that for about 30 seconds. I then added the water, ketchup, vinegar (rice wine), brown sugar, worchestshire, mustard powder and tabasco (I added quite a bit more than the recipe called for but we like it spicy!) to the pan but had the burner off. Mixed it all up and poured over the meatballs in the crockpot. My husband came running just from the wonderful smell.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
We are trying to get more veggies in so I added 3/4 cup each of chopped carrots and celery. Added a pkg of chopped spinach as well. Would do 1/2 the Garam Masala next time and add 2 tlbsp curry powder as well because we like it spicier. Serving this with shredded coconut, oven-toasted almond slivers and raisins over brown rice. Also made some sour cream cucumber salad.

Italian Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
I have made this many times for parties and such and it is always a big hit served with a crusty italian bread for dipping. Spicy goodness! I sometimes serve with parmesan and asiago cheeses to mix in! We love it. I have also used this for italian salad dressing starter or even meat rub.

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: May 26, 2007
I, of course, did not follow this recipe 100%. I sauteed onions until browned then added sweet italian turkey sausage and sauteed until all the pink was gone. Then added a spicy italian pre-cooked sausage and a few fresh minced garlic cloves. Let that simmer a bit until all the liquid was simmered out. Added a little stock (I used veggie but I would use whatever is open in the fridge) to get up all the browned pan bits and threw a bag of fresh spinach with slivered carrots on top then covered to steam the spinach--about 5-7 minutes. Cooked over low heat until the moisture was gone--again. I added organic Bertolli "olive oil, basil and garlic" flavored jarred sauce to the mix. Used no cook lasagna noodles and fresh mozzarella--not shredded so I just sliced it. I also did not have an egg so just mixed the ricotta with half asiago and half parmesan. Wonderful!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
I used this recipe as a guideline and it turned out great! I had leftover mashed potatoes to which I had added fresh parsley and green onion for our Easter Dinner. Also had lefover smothered green beans (with bacon and onion) which I threw in the pot. Used half chicken stock and half water. Also used non-fat dry milk since I didn't have any in the house. It turned out yummy and hearty.

Slow Cooker Lancaster County Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I have made this several times now but do a few things differently. I usually brown some chopped proscuitto (or bacon) with onions in a fry pan (really let the onions brown!) and add that to the kraut. Also grate an apple and a potato into the kraut to thicken the kraut juice and temper the sour a bit. Throw it all in the crock pot and serve with mashed potatoes--YUM!
