Heavenly Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
I felt so guilty drinking this until I remember that I didn't have to! It is a wonderful refreshing drink and it was very filling as well. The only thing I did different was use flax seed oil instead of the meal because that is what I had on hand. Great way to get the flax in to my son. Can't wait to try it with other berries.

Salmon Rosemary Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
These were very good. I think I've been trying to turn myself into a fan of rosemary and I'm coming to the conclusion that it is just too strong for me. Next time I think I'll use dill and maybe a little mint which will be more to my taste. The basic burger though is great. Out of all the great reviews two suggestions that are a must are chilling the mixture before you form the patties and then chilling the patties after they are formed and putting them right on the grill chilled. I was also very careful flipping them on the grill. They didn't fall apart at all. Panko bread crumbs are also a nice addition.

Hot Clam Dip II

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I was craving good clam dip and this was great. I didn't do it in a bread bowl, just mixed up the dip ingredients and cooked it in the oven in casserole dish at 300 for about 25 minutes until it was bubbly - it was a hit!

Chicken Scampi I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
My picky family really enjoyed this recipe! As noted in other reviews, I scaled back the lemon juice and worcestershire sauce by 1 T, but then doubled the sauce. It had a great taste. I was a little paranoid about the marinade being properly cooked after having the chicken in it, so I just cooked it along with the chicken in the regular oven - 375 for about 30 minutes. Then served it over rice. Definitely will make again!

Red Wine Flavored Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
This meal was really good. We liked that the flavor was not too overpowering. Looking through all the reviews, I used beef broth instead of water, a whole package of soup, a couple tablespoons of worcestershire, a little bit of brown sugar and some corn starch to thicken it. I will definitely make it again!

Slow Cooker Manly Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
My family thought this was very good. It was a little saltier than I am used to, but no overwhelmingly so. My picky husband said he didn't think it was too salty at all. I did put some potatoes in with it which I think I read somewhere can absorb some of the salt. I also dredged the meat in flour and garlic powder and browned first. I think I may go low sodium next time, but will definitely make again. Great on a cold snowy day!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
This was an excellent use of items I had on hand! I didn't have any beef broth so I used chicken and a little bit of brown gravy. Nice easy recipe.

Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
I did many of the easy changes recommended previously. Sauteed some onions, added some garlic powder and 1/2 can milk, mixed the noodles in with the sauce and lowered the temp to 350. I sprinkled some french fried onions on top and I think that was really what clinched it for my family!

Dill Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2003
This was excellent!! The only change I made was using olive oil, which unfortunately doesn't hold up well to use it a few days later. I did use all the sugar, but I added it gradually so that I could taste it along the way.

Glazed Pork Chop

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2003
These were really good. I read a lot of reviews and the one common complaint was that there was too much mustard, so I cut it down to two tablespoons and added 1 tbsp of honey. My husband who doesn't like mustard said that they were great. In my oven, I had to cook them 30 minutes. I did 25 at the 325 and 5 minutes under the broiler to carmelize them. I'll definitely do them again!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2003
This recipe was great. I used some BBQ sauce, some ketchup and no liquid smoke and it was fine. If there's one piece of previous advice I would definitely say to take is to cut the meat into chunks and get rid of all the fat you can. I did this and my sauce wasn't greasy at all.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2003
Well, this recipe probably doesn't need another review to let you know how good it is, but since my husband is upstairs trying to convince himself not to have a 6th cookie, I decided I'd put my two cents in! This was really easy and I basically followed the recipe to the letter. The only thing that I changed was to use extra brown sugar in place of the white sugar. I had the same concern as another reviewer; I wasn't sure if I was supposed to prepare the pudding or not. Since it didn't say prepared in the recipe, I forged ahead with just the powder and I guess that was right because they turned out great. One thing that I did that may have made the dough less flaky is I (accidently while I was trying to soften it)melted most of the butter. All in all a hit - thanks!!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
This was very good and so easy! I only made two changes: I used Onion Soup Mix in 1 1/2 cups water with a boullion cube and used brown gravy instead of ketchup (a family preference). Served them with garlic mashed potatoes - it was great!

Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2003
After reading just the first page of reviews, it was obvious to see that people either really liked or didn't like this recipe. I read through many reviews and these are the tips that I culled which worked great for me. I replaced the water with apple juice (I think cider would taste the best though!) and replaced the cloves with cinammon. I let the pork chops marinate in the mixture all day. Since I was using small boneless pork chops, I used a smaller baking dish than was called for so that the marinade was almost to the top of the pork chops. I cooked covered for 20 minutes and uncovered for 20 more (probably could have gone 5 minutes less). During the last 5 minutes, I pushed the apples and onions down in the juice to cook. It was a great dish this way. The meat was flavorful and tender and the apples were delicious. I think the onions were something I could do without if I didn't have one. If you're not a huge onion fan, skip these - I think you'll enjoy it more! Thanks for a great recipe!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2003
These were excellent. For once I didn't even make a substitution!! I will next time put in two cups of raisins as one wasn't enough.

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2003
This was just delicious. I was a little nervous about browning the meat since I never have good luck at that, but I used one reviewer's suggestion and used a wok. I will never brown meat in a pan again! It cooked slowly and made a nice crust on the meat - what a great smell!! I put mine in a slow cooker and used a cornstarch mixture to thicken it to my liking at the end. I also added 4 tbsp of worches. sauce and 1/4 cup of red wine - what a great dinner - thanks!!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2002
Oh my goodness!! I made this for Christmas and it was a huge hit. I think if my guests didn't have manners they would have licked the bowl!! It was very easy to make. I followed the recommendations of previous reviewers and only used 16 oz of Cool Whip - that was plenty! Will make again and again!

Angela's Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2002
I was a little skeptical at first but these were excellent - the entire family loved them. I couldn't find processed cheese food except in a spray can so I used cheddar cheese soup and sprinkled some of the new cheddar onions on top - thanks for a new crowd pleaser!

Blueberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
I'm thinking that I must have done something wrong because I didn't really like this!! It tasted just ok. I made it for a group and it did not go over well. I wasn't sure what a tube pan was so I used a bundt pan which was stoneware, that may have taken away from the topping??

Cheese Onion Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2002
This was excellent! I used Italian bread and it worked very well. I was out of mayo (which is a sin in this house), but it still tasted very good. It was easy to make, but watch it under the broiler. 5 minutes was too much in my oven and it was slightly black, but still yummy - thanks!
