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!

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!

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
I was looking for a pot roast recipe I could adjust for my Mom's gluten intolerance and this was it! I used corn starch instead of flour and left out the mushrooms as my hubby doesn't like them. I will make those separately with bacon and onion. Added about 1/4 cup red wine and homemade chicken stock. It smells divine! I will also make mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and boston lettuce with sour cream herb dressing---super YUM for a sunday dinner.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
The carnitas were a huge hit at our superbowl mexican fiesta party. I had an 8 lb pork shoulder that I probably used 5-6 lbs of in the slow cooker--cut into fist size chunks. I tripled the spice rub but lightened up on the cinnamon to just 2.5 times. The smell was divine. I did pull the meat out and toasted it up in the 400 degree oven for a few minutes before serving with burrito shells and tons of veggies, salsa, cheese, guac, etc. Had Mexican Rice II and Mexican Bean Salad from Allrecipes as sides. Everything was just wonderful.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
This was absolutely delicious. The dressing was so fresh. I made this the day before and stored it in the frig in a large ziploc overnite. I used a red and orange pepper because our friends can't eat green pepper. I also omitted the cilantro as hubby doesn't like it but the rest was done as written and got RAVE reviews at our mexican fiesta superbowl party. Served this with the crockpot Carnitas recipe and Mexican Rice II both from Allrecipes. Everyone raved and wanted recipes!

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.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Just made this with 2 huge chicken breasts and it was excellent. Cut the chicken into about 8 pieces since they were so huge and doubled the spice mix. I did not have onion powder so I substituted about 1/4 tsp of seasoned salt for the salt and onion powder. All other seasonings were used as indicated. I also just did on the stove in the pan--did not use the oven. Sprinkled some EVOO in the pan and then sprayed with butter spray during cooking---removed the pan from the heat to spray!!! Hubby loved this. nice and spicy cut up on a green salad. will also use for sandwiches and chix salad. Really nice flavor!!!

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.

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!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
Oh my gosh!! Super yummy, moist delicious-ness. Cut up 3 carrots, 3 celery stalks, a med onion and threw this in the crockpot. Added about 2 tblsp butter. Rubbed the 6.5 - 7 lb breast with low sodium Mrs. Grass onion soup mix. Meant to add more seasoning like Thyme, sage, or Poultry but completely forgot about this part. cooked breast side up for 1 hour on high, turned breast down for 1 hr on high and then about 6 hours on low. Made Mashed Potatoes, and roasted some more carrots, celery, onion and a fennel bulb cut up and tossed with EVOO, sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Served with the Crockpot juice ladled over the top. WOW!

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
YUMMO! Mixed up my own curry powder (tumeric, cumin, coriander, cayenne, ginger, clove, nutmeg) and used about 1 tablespoon of this yellow curry powder mix which is about double what the recipe calls for. Added a small golden delish apple diced, and 1 sm and 1 lrg skinless chicken breast diced to the simmering curry broth. Also added a few garlic cloves and fresh minced ginger root...I have a cold and need the spice!! Smells like a cure---adding some 2% milk to save some Kcals...Hubby is in heaven!!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Must use Williams Original Chili Seasoning. Excellent! Also used Medium Pace Picante and doubled the whole thing. I REALLY liked this chili and I have been making chili for years---many with lots more ingredients and more work and I honestly like this one much better. I did add about a cup of diced poblanos for some nice color as well. So so good!

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
This was wonderful. I used a smoked bone in turkey breast which added a whole dimension to the soup. I didn't have corn so I added diced green pepper. I also added 2 tsps of my homemade chili powder mix and 1 tsp cumin and 1 tsp oregano. My hubby loved it as he had a cold and he could still taste this delicious soup.

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.

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!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I have made this several times now to rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I have been adding the entire 4 oz of chopped jalapeno for a nice, but not overly, spicy-ness. Also, per other reviewers, I have done 1/2 C parmesan and 1/2 C panko bread crumbs for the topping. This also is better in a bit shallower dish so the ratio of topping to spread is more even.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Just made this for dinner and it was proclaimed "Very Good" by all. Since I had bought 1 lb of Laura's Lean beef, I used the whole pound not 3/4 lb as recipe states. I used the mortar and pestle on the spices (I will use WAY less salt next time--like 1/2 or 1/4 as much) as I had whole rosemary and the fennel seeds are whole. I also added a bay leaf to the meat mixture as it browned. Per other user's suggestions I grated a little fresh nutmeg into the ricotta cheese and used fresh basil - about 1/3 cup in the sauce. I used no boil Barilla noodles---it all came together and flavors were very good. Can't wait for the re-heated leftovers!
