Croissant and Salmon Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2014
I made this for a Church breakfast, in between services and I was told that this breakfast casserole was the favorite. I think I might try adding asparagus, as suggested, because that goes well with salmon.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
I made this recipe, for a holiday party last year. I used bought turkey meatballs and I made my own cranberry sauce, otherwise followed the instructions. We have about 70 people for an open house, style party, so these meatballs worked out great, because I could keep them in a crockpot on low. Everyone liked them and we were able to freeze the leftovers and have them for a quick meal with a salad, when we didn't have time to cook. One suggestion, I made the sauce the night before, let it cool and then put the meatballs and sauce in big gallon size bags and let them marinate in the fridge overnight. The meatballs stayed very moist.

Seafood Cioppino

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
This was wonderful! I picked up a bag of seafood from Costco, with everything but the fish, which was fine, because I don't really care for fish stews. I changed very little, but maybe added a little more of something, just for personal taste. I might have added a little more wine. ;-) I made spaghetti to go along with it and some ate it over spaghetti and I chose to eat it like a seafood stew. Fabulous. It definitely needs all that time for the flavors to meld together. Don't try to shorten the time. Once you get the desired flavor, then you know that you're ready to add the seafood. I made it at Christmas and decided to make it again tonight.

Cajun Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
This was super easy to make. I used the cajun seasoning recipe from this site, so it wasn't too salty. I cut down on the oil and used olive oil, plus I used boneless, skinless thighs instead. Otherwise, I used all the same ingredients and it turned out great. Need to add a couple minutes more on the grill, if you use thighs. My family all liked it, but we thought it was a little mild in taste, so I might add some more cajun seasoning or red pepper flakes next time. Great recipe! We had it for our Mardi Gras meal with some black beans and rice.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
This cookie is my new favorite! I've made it for our big Holiday Party for the last two years and it gets rave reviews. The first couple times I made these, I chopped the cranberries by hand, but this time. I used my Pampered Chef chopper and that saved so much time. Another helpful hint, would be to buy large navel oranges. One large one, should be enough to get the zest and juice that you will need. I bought small ones this time and it was a hassle and took longer, because I had to zest and squeeze two oranges. I have even made some without cranberries in them and then just added more frosting for flavor. There are some that see or hear cranberries and don't want to try them. It's silly, because they are excellent. Just took two dozen to church and am taking another dozen to school, plus I'll make more for Christmas.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
I love this recipe! Next, I'm going to try it with garlic seasoning. Very versatile. I had it at a Ladies Nite and everyone loved it! Thanks!

Crab Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I made this recipe, without cooking it and loved it. I just wanted something that I could eat with crackers. Very good!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I never in my wildest dreams did I think I would write a review, saying that I loved the Roasted Brussel Sprouts. I've never liked them. Not even a big fan of cabbage. When roasted this way, they get a crunchy outside, that reminded me of eating an egg roll. Very good. My husband even ate 5 of them and said that he'd eat them, if I made them again. He's always hated Brussels Sprouts. My teen even ate a few, but really isn't interested in having them again. I'm making them again and I think I might try the garlic suggestion, next time.

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
This is basically the same recipe that I use every year. I always make it in a crock pot. So much easier. I don't quite cover it all the way with water. You can, but you may end up with too much broth. One thing I do, is to cut off all the visible fat on the beef. When I buy the ones that are already seasoned, they usually seem too salty to me, so I rinse them, to try and reduce the sodium. Super easy recipe!

Lobster Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
I just made this and it was very good. I omitted the butter, because I didn't see the need for it, since it already has the creamed cheese. I also, increased the onions and horseradish, used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. I really enjoyed this. Had it on crackers and I'm thinking that it I left the lobster in large pieces, it would be great as a lobster roll.

Easy Pudding Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I made these for a Holiday Open House and everyone loved them! I used Double Fudge Jello pudding and white chocolate chips, because I had them. Recipe was super easy to follow and I always use a timer when I'm baking cookies, because one minute too long and you've got a dry cookie. I'm making more today for a church event and I'm sure they will be a hit, once again. I liked the idea of changing it up with different types of jello and chips. I'm going to try that. The vanilla jello with peppermint chips sounds good and would be very festive looking. Thanks!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
The soup itself, turned out fine, but I had problems with the dumplings. I had them in the crock pot for about 35 minutes, before we ate. Some of them seemed too soft on the outside and doughy on the inside, so I put them back in for another 20 minutes. Now, they were basically dissolving into the soup. Next time, I'll make my own homemade dumplings.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
This turned out great. When I cook for my immediate family, I use pork tenderloin, but when I cooked for 25 people, I used a pork shoulder and cut off the fat. Much cheaper! I used Pepsi, instead of Root Beer, because it's what I had on hand. I cooked in a slow cooker the day before the party, and let it cook some more the next day with water in the bottom, to keep it moist. Then pulled it apart and added the barbecue sauce. Let it cook until we were ready to eat and it turned out great. This is a great meal for those on a budget. I paid $25 for a large shoulder roast and it could of fed my immediate family 15 to 20 times. The one thing I would of done differently, is I wish I had separate a third of it out, before adding the sauce, so people that didn't want the sauce on, could have it plain. That would work good, if you wanted to add it to other recipes too! After feeding 25 people one day and another 15 the second day, we were still able to freeze 2 large gallon size bags of pulled pork. Great recipe!

Insalata Caprese II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I made this for a family reunion that I had my home. One tip I would give, is with the mozzarella. Put it in the freezer, before you slice it and you will get much thinner slices. I had many people that put it on a bun and ate it as a veggie sandwich.

Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I loved this recipe! I had bought some little cooked lobster tails, about shrimp size, from Trader Joe's and they worked perfect for this. I used skim milk for half and nonfat half and half for the rest. Who needs to clog their arteries, just for a good soup? I would mince the onions next time, I think. I also added a little more cayenne, which gives a nice touch of heat to the sweet lobster. My family loved it and I will definitely be trying it again. Maybe with crab, next time. Yum!!

Tipsy Peaches

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
My husband could not stop raving about this dish. We didn't have any ice cream, so we just ate the Tipsy peaches. My daughter wanted to turn her nose up at them, but ate all of hers and wanted mine too! Wonderful! I'm going to try it with Brandy next time, as I think peaches and Brandy will go well together. Also, I'm going to try the same recipe with other tree fruit, such as apples, pears and maybe even plums. Yum!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
My husband and daughter loved this! I thought it was good. My dish looked very dark, probably from the onion soup mix I used. I think next time, I'm going to use white wine. We'll definitely make it again. This is the moistest pork tenderloin I've ever had. Quite often, it's dry. Thanks for the recipe! It's so easy! It's a keeper!

Leftover Scalloped Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
I used my own leftover scalloped potato dish, which already had a large amount of sharp cheddar in it, so I didn't add any more cheese to this soup. I even cooled the soup and skimmed off the fat that had formed at the top, to make it a less fattening, but still a tasty soup. The garlic powder is what makes this a terrific soup.
