Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
I really liked the flavor of this recipe! Next time I would double the sauce ingredients. I added onion and a bit of red bell pepper. I might add water chestnuts and mushrooms for a little pzazz.

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Definately better the second day. Hubby and I both thought there was something missing. I used generic label onion soup mix. Maybe that was an issue. When I make it again, I will use brand name soup mix, beef broth instead of chicken and I will add garlic. All said, it's a keeper!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I've been sick and asked my daughter to make this for the family. She has followed a recipe only one other time with more than 4 ingredients. AWESOME! The soup was awesome. Since I didn't want to waste the other part of the fresh spinach, I asked her to put the whole bunch in. It was not overwhelming. This is delicious and I would serve it to my guests at a dinner party. A KEEPER

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2002
Yep, yep, yep. I started with a pretty expensive cut of beef. We like our meats browned so I used the BBQ outside to give it a nice color. It really added to the flavor. I used an expensive dark beer that my husband has on hand and the beer flavor was only a bit too strong for me. I don't like beer at all as a beverage. I'm definately going to make this again and do everything like before but just add a lighter flavored beer. It's great to have so much AuJu when the meat is done cooking.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
I enjoyed making this recipe. I diced up my potatoes to the same size as green peas, which I added for color. I made my pot pies in individual casserole dishes too. My family really liked this recipe. Of course, my husband liked it even better the second day. I tend to prefer saucey pot pies and would be apt to add a can of cream of chicken soup for more gravy. I will make this again.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
I over cooked the first time I made the batch. They were more cake-like that way. The second time I baked them for the recipes' suggested time and had more of a soft, chewy cookie that everyone preferred more. I'm going to try them with white chips and macadamia nuts next!

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2002
Texture was grainy. I had hoped for a smooth and creamy texture. The flavor was fine and those that tried it at our Christmas party had the same comments. We had leftovers because the texture was not appealing to most. I spent good money for the best cheeses too, so I don't think it was quality of ingredients. bummer!

Roasted Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2001
Great for a prime rib dinner. I used this recipe for my Christmas Eve dinner. I couldn't find the potato and garlic soup so I had to use Mushroom and garlic soup. The mushroom soup was brown so it changed the appearance of the dish I'm sure. I tripled this recipe for 20 dinnner guests. We had leftovers that were later devoured before the night was over. I had to cover the dish with foil because it was browning too quickly. That may be because I made such a large pan of the potatoes. I think this dish tastes best if it has a chance to "rest" after coming out of the oven. The potatoes firm up a bit. Will seek out the cream of potato and garlic soup and make this again. A Keeper.

Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2001
My ten year old daughter thinks it's not Christmas without Spinach Balls. My original recipe called for a dash of fresh cayanne pepper which is very tasty with the combination of flavors. I always have to double this recipe and this year I should have tripled it. I had a lot of visitors this holiday season and even those that don't care for spinach tried and liked this appetizer. I baked these for 13 minutes; cooled completely; stored in an air tight container and refrigerated. When I wanted to serve, I baked spinach balls on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes at 350 and served warm. Perfect!

Bacon and Date Appetizer

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2001
Amazing! I collected recipes during the year to make for Christmas 2001. I had an open house for several days and needed prepare-ahead recipes that I could pop in the oven or in the fryer as my guests arrived. My first batch of dates I tried as the recipe called for, in the oven. Cooking by this method made the bacon unevenly cooked. My husbad tried one and didn't care for the sweetness of the date. I almost chucked the whole heap of bacon wrapped dates and called it "a lesson learned". The next day I had the wok with hot oil cooking crab puffs and I decided to try deep frying a batch of the dates. It made a HUGE difference in the flavor and texture of the dates! My husband thought they were delicious now! They were no longer super sweet and the bacon was cooked evenly. I asked my closest friends to rate the appetizers from most favorite to least (I had at least a dozen to choose from) and these were number one with most of my fussy eaters. They're one of the best for making ahead and keeping in the fridge until ready to cook. I used a can of Diamond-A toasted and salted almonds. Because the almonds were so small, I was able to stuff two into each date. I will keep this recipe and make again. They're wonderful.

Crab Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2001
I have made this recipe several times. I tried making them ahead for my Christmas appetizer menu. I wouldn't suggest making the formed puffs more than 24 hours ahead. It happened that I prepped more than I needed and cooked what remained on the second day. The won ton skins were a bit soggy and when cooked, were a bit chewy. They were still devoured.

Feta Cheese Foldovers

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2001
These were a BIG HIT at my holiday party this Christmas (2001). I made them a day ahead of time and baked as needed. To the recipe, I added finely chopped sun dried tomatoes and black olives. My cousin thought some pine nuts would have made this recipe remarkable. I will keep and use this recipe from now on. I had folks who dislike feta cheese like this appetizer (I am one of them!)

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: May 14, 2000
I will double this recipe from now on! I didn't bake sauce and chicken togehter. I baked the boneless chicken in a hot 425 degree oven for 25 minutes and just prepared the sauce in a pan. I wanted to guaratee tender and moist meat. My nine year old went wild for this dish. Took leftovers to work the next day and shared with five other people. All five asked for the recipe and said it was awesome! I'd like to have more quick-easy-impressive recipes like this. TRY THIS ONE FOR SURE!
