Russian Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
This was a very unique potato salad and a very nice change from the norm. I'd truly rate it about a 3 1/2. July '07 update: I've made this several more times and we really like it. I would say it is definitely a "4" now. I modified it a bit and we like it better. I don't add the onions (we don't like them.) Also, rather than use all dill pickles, I used about 2 1/2 dill pickles chopped up and the same amount of bread and butter pickles chopped up.

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2005
I made this recipe without the walnuts and it was a big hit. Several people wanted the recipe.

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2001
My family loved this chili, including my father who is a meat and potatoes guy. The first time I made it I had a variety of veggies and mushrooms and it was great. The second time I made it I only used button mushrooms and fewer veggies and it didn't taste as good. Also, there are lots of veggies to clean and chop. I wouldn't call it easy.

Muesli

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2004
I had Muesli for the first time in Switerland. I have been looking for a similar recipe or even a boxed cereal that was similar. I finally found it with this recipe. Enjoy!

Combo of Cinnamon Rolls III & Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I tried the overnight rise with limited success. Because they didn't rise enough, they didn't fit snuggly in the pan which caused the outsides to overbake. Well, I have 6 in the freezer. I'll let them rise normally. Absolutely loved the inside and the frosting. I used 1T of Korintje Indonesia Cinnamon and 1 1/2 T of China Cassia Cinnamon (both from Penzeys).

Blue Cheese Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
This was thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family. We kept the sauce on the side as not everyone liked it. I'll be using the leftover beef and sauce to make a dinner salad.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
We enjoyed this recipe. I used broccoli rather than spinach due to family preference. I used panko bread crumbs and salted it with BVI Caribbean Seasoning rather than croutons. I also used reduced fat cheese and fat free cottage cheese and it tasted great and was healthier.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
We thought this salmon was fine, but nothing special. I will make it again for variety, but it won't be in my regular rotation of salmon recipes.

Grilled Beets in Rosemary Vinegar

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2006
I liked this recipe for beets. My husband, who doesn't even like beets, said he it was okay.

Rainbow Pasta Salad II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
This was easy to make and tasty. I used Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Italian w/ Parmesan dressing. I made only 1/2 a recipe and it was a lot. I plan on adding chicken and freshly grated parmesan cheese to the leftovers for variety.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
We made this recently for a pool party and it was a hit. Everyone enjoyed it. We didn't wait the 2 hours before drinking it and it was still very good. We used Merlot wine and rum (had it on hand). We will make this again and again.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
The kids really liked these. I have other recipes that my husband and I like better, but the kids don't like them at all.

Miracle Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
I found this to just be an average green bean casserole. Perhaps the problem was the broccoli soup (it was Campbells and not low fat). I made half a recipe so the next day I had the other half of the soup (properly diluted) and I thought it didn't taste good. I'll probably try this again, but I'll use a different soup.

Simple Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
This was a really good recipe for my kids. Dh and I have a favorite that includes baked beans, but its not appreciated by the kids. I took this to a potluck and got many positive comments. I used a chopper to make the onions very small and unnoticable to the kids.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
This was so easy to make. I've made it with homemade drop biscuits and the refrig biscuits and we like both. I've also used one can of chicken and a different cream soup. We've liked all the variants. We did find 2 cans to be a lot of dumplings.

Modified Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I think this could be better if either white potatoes weren't used. They were dry and tasteless. The sweets were nearly overcooked. Perhaps try this without cooking anything else in the oven. Flavors melded nicely in the frig.

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Yum, yum, yum. Everyone loved this recipe, including my picky eater. The picky eater did remove the breading though. I had a bit of trouble with the breading sticking, my pork roast was probably too damp. It didn't reheat the best (in the micro), so I think I'd try to make a smaller roast next time or divide my roast in half before cooking. It froze very well and the issue we'd had earlier with the breading in the microwave was forgotten. (I had about a 3# roast and it made enough for 3 meals for my family of 4.)

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Our favored veggies were the red peppers, then the onions. We had a couple problems with this recipe. The Yukon gold potatoes were very dry and not tasty; some of the sweet potatoes were overdone and mushy. I swapped carrots for the squash (only I barely like squash) and they were cooked perfectly. I also added a few leftover mushrooms for the last 10 minutes and they were excellent. I will say that as I've been reheating the veggies, I really believe the flavors of this recipe are a '5'. The Yukon Golds tho still don't seem to have a lot of flavor. I had huge Yukons, so maybe that was part of the problem.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
We found this recipe to just be average. It seemed to be missing something. It was better the next day, but I'd like it to taste that good on the first day and get even better. I made the lasagna with no boil noodles - it may be why we didn't think it was so great. I especially noticed on the next day that it was very, very dry. I will try again with regular noodles.
