Ham Cake-ettes

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
Not sure if I did something wrong, being that so many other people had such great results. I followed the recipe exactly, but I used CountryCrock garlic mashed potatoes from the refrigerated section of the grocery store. They came out so mushy that they fell apart in the frying pan, and made such a mess. I think I will try these again, only with homemade leftover mashed potatoes.

Cherry Snowballs

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
These were pretty bland. I wanted to add them to my Christmas cookie tray, but I think I'll pass on these.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
I was fooled at 1st. I read the reviews, n decided to try this with some modification. I used 1 can Prgresso onion soup, a carton of beef broth, 12 oz. of Foster beer, a tblsp. of italian seasoning, a half of envelope of onion soup, and a 3 lb. sirloin roast, which I seasoned with granulated garlic, before putting it in the SC. After cooking it on low for 7 hours, I tasted it by cutting a small piece of meat, and was still able to taste the strong beer flavor, and the meat was very tough. I thought to myself "I can't believe I wasted a good sirlion roast on this recipe, I'm gonna leave a 1 star and tell everyone how horrible this recipe is, and what are ppl thinking? Don't they have any taste buds?" Since nobody in my family was home yet, I sliced up the meat with an electric knife (because it was so tough). and threw it back in the SC on the warm setting. Later that night, my teenage son came home, and took a couple of pieces out of the SC, and told me that it was real good. So my curiosity got the best of me, and I tried a piece, and it was so tender, it practically melted in my mouth. So I took all the sliced meat, and the liquid and put it into a container in the refrig. The next day, I toasted some Kaiser rolls with butter and granulated garlic, and added the meat which I nuked w/the juices, just to warm it, some sauted mushrooms and onion, with Mozz. and put it under the broiler. That's where the WOW factor came in. This sandwich litterally melted in my mouth!! OMG!!!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
After trying this recipe for bread, I liked it so much I decided to try it with rolls for a New Year's Eve dinner. I used the dough cycle and increased the sugar to 3 table spoons, when the dough cycle was finished, I rolled out 1 oz. pieces and lined them in a buttered glass baking dish, about one inch apart. I put a cloth towel over it and put them in the microwave with it off for a hour just so they rise again. Then baked them on 375 for 20 minutes. Took them out and brushed melted butter over them, and baked them for 10 more minutes. They were the best rolls I have ever eaten. My guests couldn't stop eating them. All I heard all night was how good the rolls were.

Leave out the mayonaise and the red pepper, and increase the horseradish and it's just like the famous restaurant version! Yummy!

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
I made these tonight for my teenage kids and their friends. My daughter took credit for making them and got a marriage proposal. LOL! The only thing I changed was not adding sun dried tomatoes.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
I changed it a little, but got AWSOME results! I added 1 teaspoon of raspberry extract and made them with butter flavored shortening and milk chocolate chips. I also added another half cup of flour, because the dough was a little too creamy. I rolled them in a ball and lightly flattened the top and they came out perfectly round. I had to bake them a few more minutes as well. The aroma of the raspberry and chocolate filled the house. These cookies flew off the cooling rack and I only got to try one! Now my kids want me to make more!

Grilled-Salmon Lemon Basil Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
This was REAL good. The only changes I made was I added a little more garlic to the sauce, and I also added a pinch of dried dill. I don't have a grill right now, so I coated the salmon with a little olive oil, and sprinkled some chili powder and a little garlic powder on both sides, and broiled it for about 4 minutes per side. Served it with rice and steamed brocolli. The sauce is perfect to put over brocolli. This was a quick and delicious weeknight meal.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
This was good. I tweeked it a little by adding minced garlic to the bacon and leeks, and a lot of cracked pepper. I also mashed up the patatoes in the chicken broth and added a little extra broth. It just kicked it up a notch, and it came out awsome. My kids and their friends loved it on a cold snowy day!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
These were okay. I certainly wouldn't say they were to die for. I followed the recipe to the T. I even added extra fresh blueberries,and my kids said they would rather have toaster muffins. So I did all that work for nothing. I could've slept later and popped some toaster muffins in the toaster and my kids would have been happier. Go figure!

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
This was AWSOME! I rolled out premade pie crusts and cut it with a cookie cutter to fit mini cupcake pan, baked it for 10 minutes and filled the little pastry cups with this lemon curd. They were GREAT! I never made such a quick and easy dessert before!

Bob's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2005
I used gorgonzola cheese and left out the hot sauce and honey. But this turned out excellent! I also mixed in some whole milk to thin it out. That's all I had on hand, and I didn't think it would turn out so good, but it turned out great! I'm not going back to bottled dressing again!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
I really liked these mashed potatoes. I liked the way the oregano flavors them. I don't think I will add as much garlic next time. My son thought they were good, but he says he likes my recipe better. My daughter said they were okay as long as you put ketchup on them. LOL!

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
This should be in the Hall of Fame! The only thing I changed was, instead of using white wine, I used white sherry, and I added italian seasoning and an extra clove of minced galic (we love garlic). Even my 11 yr. old son who HATES any kind of fish, loved this! I would give it 5 stars just for that! I served it with egg noodles instead of rice, I thought it would go a lot better, and it was GREAT. I also served it with an italian herb salad with crusted bread YUM!!

Mocha Ricotta Creme

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
This was okay with some changes. I tripled the recipe, and put vanilla and almond extract in it. I also put 2 tsp. of cocoa powder, and 2 packets of splenda, and blended it in a food processor. Then I put it it custard cups sprinkled it with expresso powder and the chocolate chips. Then I put it in the refrig. so all I have to do is grab one when I want it. My 14 yr. old daughter liked it, but my 11 yr old son didn't. I thought it was good for a diet dessert. Next time I think I will add some slivered almonds too. If anyone is having trouble finding expresso powder, just go to any Italian import store, or Italian gormet store, they should have it.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2004
These were okay. I tried them with canned and then with frozen green beans, and I prefer frozen. I also tried them with and without cheese, and prefer them without cheese. I also tried them with a whole head of garlic and then with just half a head of garlic and prefer just half. This is a pretty good recipe, but with a little changes, it could be awsome!
