Easy BBQ Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
This is a great recipe! I used 1 cup of BBQ sauce & removed foil for the last 5 min to thicken sauce as per other reviewers. I also used 6 breast halves and there was still plenty of sauce leftover for a side dish (cheesy mashed potatoes - yum!). Cooked for 45 min - Perfect! Thank you! I'll keep this one forever!

Apple Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2003
WOW! These were delicious! I used stove top prepared instead of bread cubes, added some cooked sausage & used a granny smith apple (great flavor). I also used a brown sugar glaze on top - 1/2c brown sugar mixed with 1/4c melted butter & spread over top of chops (only 4 chops). This recipe is a definite keeper! Thanks alot!

Best Ever Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
This was the first time I've ever made crab cakes and they were the best ones I've ever tasted! I did add old bay, used a little extra crabmeat and rolled them lightly in bread crumbs mixed with parmesan cheese because I wanted to seal in the flavor and wasn't sure if they would stay together properly without. I always had crab cakes with alot of bready type fillers and never really cared for them until I made these. Huge hit with hubby, can't wait to make them again!Thanks!

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Big success! This is the first time I've ever cooked any kind of squash. I took other reviewers advice and roasted it cut in half, meat side down. The skin peeled right off. I made the recipe "as is" with the exception of adding a little cinnamon, ginger, and oops, I had it out, but I forgot to add the brown sugar to the topping. Didn't matter though, Everyone raved over it! I read the reviews and I'm so glad I didn't cut back on the sugar. I don't think I would have liked it so much without the full amount of sugar. It's like a pumpkin type of dessert or a Thanksgiving side dish but I served it on a normal weeknight and it was excellent! I definitely suggest that you try the recipe before cutting back unless you need to watch your sugar intake or for personal preferences. Thanks for a delicious recipe! UPDATE- I used the brown sugar in the topping this time and it was way too sweet. I'll make it again w/o the brown sugar in the topping like the first time.

Breaded Center Cut Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 14, 2002
I used 1/2 inch chops instead and adjusted cooking time to 40 min. They were very tender and moist. Thumbs up from my husband! The water in the bottom definitely makes a big difference! Thanks for sharing!

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
This was great! My husband hates apple pie so I thought this might be too much for him. He LOVED it!! I used only four 1/2 in chops and kept recipe the same - except cook time was only 35-40 min. I wanted to try out an oven bag I bought, (no mess), and it worked unbelievably well with this! I put chops on bottom as another reviewer suggested and added cornstarch to sherry. Excellent!! I knew I would like it but for my husband, (a cooked apple hater), this recipe is a raving success! Thanks!

Turkey Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2005
This was excellent! I also added some peas , carrots and a little spinich. I also tripled the white sauce for the recipe and even made extra after it was finished to pour over top. That may have been because I used more vegetables & turkey than the recipe called for. Thanks for a great new way to use up all of that leftover turkey!

Cola Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2004
Great new way to serve pork chops! I mixed in the brown sugar instead of sprinkling on top & marinaded about an hour. Also, if you want the marinade to stay on top of chops, just put a little bit of marinade on bottom so chops don't burn and pack them tightly together without any extra space on the sides. Then pour marinade over and it will come out thick & almost glazed on top. My hubby loved this! Definite keeper! Thank You!!

Fish Chowder I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2003
I have to review this recipe again because it's just soooo good! This time, I added celery, mushrooms & scallions w/ the bacon & onion sautee, also used half & half instead of milk and chicken broth in place of the water for potatoes. I also added 1 can of corn - again I used leftovers, grilled swordfish steaks in a terriyaki marinade. I have not tried raw fish yet, but this recipe will work with anything - very versitile and absolutely perfect!! I get such great compliments on this dish, you have to try this! Thank you again for an awesome recipe!

Lemony Skillet Chicken and Shallots

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2002
This recipe is excellent! I used thin cutlets instead of breasts (adjusting cooking time for less). I also added fresh garlic w/the shallots & some white wine w/the fresh lemon juice.I will make this dish over & over again, it's become a new favorite!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I realize this recipe is very basic but the timing of the vegetables is what makes it amazing. My family always boiled everything together for the same length of time which makes the veggies and potatoes mushy. My Grandma recently passed away and I have taken over the traditional dinners which I've never really made before. This recipe has given me a whole new take on corned beef and cabbage. The cabbage is perfect after 15-20 min. and the broth is amazing, I like to use the leftover broth for a good soup or stew, just refrigerate overnight and skim the hard fat off, add whatever you like and voila! Thanks Laria!

Green Bean Bundles II

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2005
Excellent! I used fresh string beans instead of canned, and I steamed them slightly first and then marinated. Since they were much longer then canned, I used a whole slice of bacon and wrapped in an upwards fashion around the middle so it looked like two or three wraps. My family loved it! They told me, "If you're inviting over someone you want to impress, make these bundles and they'll think you're a professional! Thanks for a wonderful side dish!

Cranberry Orange Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
This was really good! I made this for fondue (chicken, beef & pork, but sauce was for chicken). It was a big hit! Everyone loved it including myself. I think the roux of OJ & cornstarch was the kicker, I may use a little more next time plus a dash of nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice in addition to the cinnamon. Excellent recipe! Thank You!

Garlic and Rosemary Shrimp

Reviewed: May 5, 2005
This recipe was good, but I thought there was way too much wine taste. I think I'll leave out the white wine vinegar next time & just use the real wine. I also minced the garlic instead of halves and I didn't use the peppers, just the crushed red pepper. To subdue the "too much wine" taste, I added a slight amount of flour & milk which also made the sauce a bit thicker and a touch of sugar. I can only give three stars since it was just too strong as original. Will try again in my own version, Thanks for the idea.

Leftover Chicken a la King

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2004
Excellent! It definitely needs at least 1/2 tsp more of the cornstarch to thicken, I also added some parmesan cheese. My husband raved over it & it was so easy! Thanks!

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
This was pretty good. I made it the day before New Year's and my hangover thanks you so much! Everyone enjoyed it but I thought something was missing. I think I'll try some chopped onions and season the bread cubes next time. I absolutely love the cornflake topping, never used them for anything but cereal! Reminds me of the store-bought vegetable lasagne topping I love so much. This is a 5 star recipe for an easy no-fuss breakfast but I can only give 4 since it really needs a little oompf to make it great. Either way, I looked pretty cool dishing this out while everyone else could barely get off the couch! Thanks so much!

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2003
This was absolutely delicious! It's so moist and the topping really makes it! Thanks! OK, this last review was 9/11/03 and it's now 5/5/05. I must review again because I've been making this for over a year now and I have to say This is the best meatloaf recipe, really! My husband flips over this. He says, " I love the way you make your meatloaf, I've never had better!" This is the best compliment, considering the fact that his Mom is an excellent cook, ( in my opinion as well as his.). That means, my meatloaf is better than Mom's, Thanks to you! Don't change a thing - the recipe is perfect as is!
