Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2015
The most awful recipe on this site. I am a seasoned cook and I followed as written and never change a recipe, but this was an exception. After making the sauce and before putting it over the potatoes, I tasted the sauce and realized it was going to need a lot of help because it was so tasteless. Tried much more salt and pepper, garlic powder AND chopped garlic and as a last resort, added a cup or more of chicken broth. Nothing helped -- absolutely tasteless. I put it together and baked it anyway, and as I hate to waste money on food, had a serving with pork chops for dinner tonite. Threw away the rest in the garbage. How it earned five stars and excellent reviews is beyond my comprehension!

Shrimp Egg Foo Young

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
This recipe is better than my local Chinese takeout. I did use diced chicken, beat 5 eggs instead of 4, added a whole can of drained LaChoy chinese vegetables along with the green onions and garlic powder. I found non-stick mini-skillets (the type to fry one egg) to make the patties perfectly round and all one size. I made the sauce as written the first time and did not like the vinegar addition, so omitted it the second time, used less sugar and it was excellent. Couldn't get a thick consistency with the cornstarch, so added more than written. Making again for dinner tonite. Great recipe !

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
Looking for recipe today for leftover turkey breast and had all these ingredients on hand so made it for dinner tonite. AWESOME! I've made other pot pies and none compare to this one. I did scale the recipe down to one pie (six servings), and it was perfect. Omitted the Italian seasoning and substituted a sprinkle of thyme, used thawed mixed veggies, to which I added the celery and chopped onion and sauteed in butter. The other seasonings right on target and consistency of the filling was not runny nor too thick. Definitely making again 'cause its a keeper!

Sweet Russian Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Great recipe ! Didn't change too much except a little more vinegar. I've made this several times and my grandpa would be proud. He was from Lithuania and made a cabbage soup similar to this. He used to serve it with a boiled potato and sometimes a slice of rye bread with butter. A whole meal in itself especially in cold, nasty winter weather.

Donna's Famous Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Very good and very simple to make. I added mini-chocolate chips to the batter before baking since my social group are all chocoholics. This basic recipe would be good with any type of topping too. Definitey making again.
