Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
These were fantastic. I don't usually care for pancakes but these were amazing. I usually make myself something else while the family has pancakes but I ate three of these with my eggs!! I followed the instructions an used 2 tbsp vinegar for each 3/4 c milk and no one could taste it at all. My husband HATES vinegar and I was worried he'd smell it before I got the cakes in the pan, lol. But he loved them and said they were very buttery. I wonder if the people who can taste the vinegar are either not letting it sit long enough or maybe cooking them too quickly. Keep your temp low to med-low so the vinegar has a chance to mellow. Definitely a keeper recipe.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
We absolutely loved this. The darker it got, the tastier it got. We did some with and some without the parmesan at the end and it was good both ways. If your broiler gets too hot you can toast finely grated parmesan in a non stick pan over med-low heat. Shake or gently stir often so it browns evenly. It's super yummy. A lot of reviews suggest covering the dish - that completely defeats the purpose, it won't be roasting. For this recipe you want the cauliflower to turn dark. The black edges were my favorite part!

Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
This was fantastic. I lightened it up a bit by using boneless skinless breasts and less butter and bread crumbs that recommended. Cooked at 400 for about 40 minutes. The outside was crunchy, the inside was moist. My swaps didn't change flavors and it was delicious. My 4 year old (who hates to waste his time eating) ate an entire chicken breast and asked if he could take leftovers for his school lunch! I served with Dreamfields pasta, spaghetti sauce, and steamed broccoli. Definitely going in our monthly rotation!

Fried Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
This was great! Mine didn't get crispy, probably because the broccoli wasn't dry enough. Next time I'll let it sit out longer or maybe put it in the salad spinner.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
I've started using half whole wheat flour and they are still wonderful. I also use 1 tbsp sugar, apprx 1.5 tsp truvia which I don't think changed the taste. Delicous. The first time I made these they came out quite tall which made the burgers a little difficult to eat. Flatten them quite a bit! Sesame or poppy seeds on top are really good, too!

Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I give this a 3, my husband gives it a 5 which is funny since he usually doesn't care for sauerkraut. I happen to love sauerkraut and I was disappointed that it's flavor mellowed so much in this recipe. The meat was super super tender. If I make it again I would NOT use bone in chops again because we kept find small pieces of bone.

This was good, I thought it was a bit bland but the whole family ate it. I'd make it again.

Fried Rice with Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
Delicious!!!! I usually skip the chicken and make this as a side dish. I like to add diced onion and sometimes a handful of frozen peas. Always a big hit at my house!

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
This is so yummy! I think this is better than any sandwich shop! I've made this several times and my family prefers it when I add a cup of beef broth (to mellow the peppers but I serve extra peppers for those of us who want extra zing) and I use lots of garlic powder instead of whole cloves simply because it's easy and I always have it on hand. I serve this on bakery rolls with swiss cheese melted under the broiler. So so tasty. I've also made quesadillas with this beef. I think it would also be delicious on top of a Greek style salad with feta cheese, black olives, more pepperocinis and a nice vinigrette. Yuuummmmmmm

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
We really like this. I make it milder than written because we have 2 toddlers. I add lots of thinly sliced red onions and carrots to make it more like our favorite restaurant dish. I also make a little extra sauce so there is plenty for all those veggies!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
This was very very good and definitely a keeper. I cut back on the brown sugar and added some hot sauce at the end. My husband HATES celery IF he knows it's in there, LOL. So I sprinkled in a little celery salt instead of chopped celery. For those who are leaving out onions for the kids or other picky eaters, try grating the onion instead of chopping it. Or use onion powder instead. Next time I'll start this a little earlier so it can simmer in the sauce longer. Super duper good. WAY better than anything in a can :)

Taco Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
This was very very good and we'll definitely make it again. I forgot to defrost the beef so I sauteed half a chicken breast with taco seasoning and the onions iinstead. Also, used a store bought thin crust and about half the cheese to cut some calories and fat. One cup of finely shredded cheddar was actually plenty to cover the whole pizza. I served it with PJ's Fresh Corn Salad from this site and a salad of iceberg topped with salsa and sour cream mixed with jarred jalapenos. Very very good meal.

P.J.'s Fresh Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
I don't usually review recipes when I made changes the first time but this is worth making an exception. The idea alone is worth 5 stars! I've eaten raw corn but only alone. This is my new favorite way to eat sweet summer corn. I had to omit the zucchini because I didn't have any and I forgot to put in the peppers. I didn't add any dressing because it was soooooo tasty without that I was afraid to ruin it. It didn't even need salt or pepper. This is so so so good. This is going to be my go-to dish for picnics and potlucks for the rest of the season.

Easy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This chicken is OMG good!!! I used light coconut milk to cut the calories. I can only imagine how wonderful it would have been with regular! Other than that I made it exactly as written. I thought the peanut sauce was only ok but my husband thought it was wonderful. Next time I will experiment with the marinade recipe to make a dipping sauce from that and servce both. I served this with white rice cooked in fat free chicken broth and cucumber salad dressed lightly with equal parts rice wine vinegar and sugar and just a pinch of dried basil (b/c I didn't have fresh. So so so good. I made 2 lbs of chicken and I think there was enough marinade for at least 4 lbs. I cut the peanut sauce in half and there was still too much for us. Next time I'll make 1/4 recipe or less. I can't wait to make this again!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
This was fantastic! It was such a hit that I actually made it twice this week :) I agree with the reviews that say to use a cheaper cut of meat. The first time I used a 2 lbs. tenderloin b/c that's what I had ($14 worth of meat) and a thick and spicy bbq sauce. The second time I used a 3.5 lbs. roast ($7 on sale) and a hickory sauce. The roast was just as tender and pulled apart just as easily. Once I shredded the meat I added the sauce and put it back in the pot on low until my husband came home. This will be a regular meal and a definite party food from now on!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
These were really good. The best we've had outside of a restaurant. I used a salted butter substitute so I didn't add any extra salt. And after reading the reviews I reduced the baking powder to 3 teaspoons. My husband would have preferred the edges crispier but I think the texture was due to my cooking...I used a nonstick pan without oil. I bet a hot oiled pan would have made good crispy edges. I think calling this recipe 8 servings is a little misleading unless you are really serving one cake per person. I got about 10 small, thick pancakes using a 1/4 c scoop. It was enough for my husband, my two toddlers, and me with 2 leftover.

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
This was my first attempt at tuna noodle casserole and it was very good. It's not something that sounds good to me but my husband requested it so I gave it a shot. I made some substitutions based on the reviews and what I had on hand. I used 2 cans of soup and 1 can-ful of fat free milk. I used about 2 cups of velveeta. I only cooked my noodles for 6 or 7 minutes because I HATE mushy food. They came out perfect after 15 minutes in the oven. I covered half the casserole with potato chips and half with frenches onions. The onions were the house favorite. Will definitely make again.

Ann's Shrimp Etouffee

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
So so yummy and so so healthy and so so low in calories! I scaled this down for 2 people. I added 2 green bell peppers to make it a little more authentic. I also used olive oil instead of butter. I served over brown rice cooked in low sodium chicken stock. Another thing I did was make a quick shrimp stock to use in place of water. I took the shrimp shells and put them in a bowl of water, microwaved for 3 minutes, and let sit until I was ready to add the water. Definitely a keeper recipe.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Ok, these are not better than beef but they are definitely the best ground turkey concoction I have ever had. I don't usually care for ground turkey at all but these are a keeper. If you have trouble with the burgers falling apart your onions might just be too big. They need to be diced pretty small. Or even grated in. I served these on Arnold Sandwich Thins (100 calories for the whole roll!) and topped with lettuce, tomato, raw onion, and buffalo chicken marinade. My husband gobbled them up. Definitely a keeper!
