Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
Very good! I took the advice on another reviewer and sprinkled cheddar cheese on top. Souper Soup!

Beef and Cabbage Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
Excellent stew! I make this in the crock pot. Just brown the meat, put it in the crock pot and cover with the rest of the ingredients. Cook on low all day and it comes out great! Another great excuse to eat cabbage. Great as-is, but I've also added corn, peas, cauliflower, etc.

Cabbage Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
Excellent! They give the impression that they are difficult to make but they are very easy and quick. They also reheat very well. Great excuse to eat more cabbage!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
Very good recipe and so much less time consuming than stuffed cabbage rolls. I probably will never make cabbage rolls again due to the amount of time saved using this recipe and the similarity of the taste. I always chop up my cabbage rolls before I eat them anyway. I served with mashed potatoes. I definitely agree with other reviewers that the recipe as-is severely lacks seasoning. I added a few cloves of garlic, a teaspoon of pepper and at least triple the salt called for. Taste it after the first hour when you stir and adjust to your liking.

To-Die-For Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
Great recipe. I agree with other reviewers that the filling makes enough for 2 or 3 pies. I saved it to make chicken noodle soup the next day. I did make some changes to lighten it up that probably made it a 4-star; but I'm certain the recipe as written is a 5+ star. I used baked boneless chicken breast and omitted the butter (actually by accident!). I didn't even miss the butter, although I'm sure that would have made a huge difference. Next time I'll probably use half the butter called for. I recommend lining the edges of the crust with aluminum foil to avoid burning.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
You're going to want to add more noodles, don't do it! I made this recipe twice. The first time I added extra noodles because the proportions just didn't seem right to me. I made it a second time exactly as written and it was much, much better. The noodles absorb all the liquid. Do not add more noodles!!

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
Fantastic recipe. I used about half the cayenne because my kids don't like the heat. It still had just enough kick to make me happy. I also used half-and-half in place of the heavy cream to cut the fat down a bit. Even with these changes, I thought this was one of the best Indian dishes I've ever made; and I make a lot!

Wall's T-Bone Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
Very good. One of the better marinades I've tried. I made the recipe as-is and the whole family really enjoyed it. I left it marinade for 4 hours before grilling.

Sesame Seared Tuna

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
I felt like I was eating at a seafood restaurant when I ate this tuna! Very good. I accidentally added the wasabi before reducing the sauce. It didn't seem to matter. I served over a bed of Japanese pickled veggies from the garden and a grilled rice cake on the side. I'll be making this as much as my mercury levels will allow!

Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
I love this recipe. Its a great way to use up zucchini from the garden and makes a healthy meal. I don't change anything except substituting cheddar for the swiss cheese. Fun to make because it gives me a reason to get out the mandolin! I think its the fear of losing my fingertips that makes this tool so much fun. I have made it with canned tomatoes and fresh cilantro for a really nice twist. I've also added red pepper with the onions a few times just for color.

Breakfast Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Way too much meat. I cut the meat down slightly, but should have done more. I would suggest half of what this recipe calls for.

Jambalaya

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Very good recipe. I lightened it up a bit by using turkey sausage and cutting the oil down to 1 tablespoon. The flavor was still very good.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
Very good. I definitely recommend adding beans (black or white or both). Cook breasts in crock and shred 30-60 minutes before soup is finished. Great heated for leftovers. I'll make this again!

Indian Shrimp Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Very good. I cut the fat down to about 14g per serving by using only 1 tbsp oil and substituting light coconut milk. I used fresh ginger and added about a tsp red curry paste for some extra spice. I did have to add some cornstarch to thicken the sauce a bit. Just mix water and cornstarch in a bowl before adding to avoid lumps. Crushed cashews or pistachios would be an excellent thickener as well, but I was trying to keep fat low.

Chicken Primavera with Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Very good. This is the recipe on the back of the tub of cooking creme. I wasn't expecting much from this recipe, but it surprised me and turned out to be very good and was easy and quick to prepare. You can put basically any vegetables you have on hand in this dish. I added a bag of frozen stir-fry vegetables and also went through the fridge and added whatever was available (zucchini, carrot, celery). This recipe is a great way to add veggies to your diet.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
Excellent as written, but definitely room for changes based on personal preference. I personally feel that this recipe screams for 6-8oz fresh, chopped spinach added when the onions/garlic are just about done. I've also added green or red peppers and minced celery. LIGHTER VERSION - for a still very tasty, but significant reduction in fat/calories: -use turkey sausage -omit or reduce olive oil -substitute ff evaporated milk for cream (adds a slightly cooked flavor, but it is concealed by the other flavors of this dish)

3BC (Best Baked Bean Casserole)

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Excellent baked beans. I made bbq ribs, mashed potatoes and these beans. The beans were everyone's favorite. I didn't measure anything, but otherwise didn't make any changes to the recipe

Best of Everything Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I really wanted to like this recipe, but had a difficult time with the mush texture. The flavor was OK, but not great. Like many other reviewers, I had a very difficult time keeping the burgers together while cooking them. I tried putting the patties in the fridge for an hour before cooking, but they still fell apart. I halved the recipe and it still made 6 patties.

Mexican Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Very easy and good base recipe, but definitely needs a few changes to get to 5 star. Chops are very tender using this cooking method. I strongly suggest the following changes: -Season chops with seasoned salt and dip in flower before frying in oil -Add cumin, cayenne, crushed red pepper, fresh cilantro, and sliced green onions to the rice mix -Double rice to 1 cup -bake right in the skillet, no need to dirty a baking dish I would also recommend: -Swap black beans for kidney beans -Add chopped jalapeno peppers
