Easy Chicken Gyro

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
My rating is for the chicken only as I did not make the rest. I made the marinade as written except I marinated the chicken in a resealable plastic bag for probably 4 hours and then grilled on a grill pan on top of the stove. It had a pretty good flavor. Since my husband and I like spicy, bold flavors I might add some cayenne or other seasoning next time as it was a little bland for our tastes.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
I threw the chicken in the crockpot when I found out in the afternoon that someone was coming to our house for dinner that night. I found this recipe and it was so easy and delicious. It worked out perfectly. i will be making it again. I can't believe I waited this long to try it.

Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
This was ok for me. It was not bad but not great. It did not have as much flavor as I expected. It could be tweaked but I would probably look for another recipe first.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
Yum! Excellent salad. It tasted great with lighter ingredients including whole wheat pasta, light mayonnaise, light ranch dressing (used instead of dry mix) and center cut bacon. Instead of black olives I added chopped green onions. I did add a generous amount of black pepper and a couple of sprinkles of cayenne and it was just enough to give it that extra spice to make it just right for us. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Wonnie Burgers!

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
These were good, moist, juicy burgers but just very oniony. So you need to like onions if you want to try this burger. I scaled this down to use 1 lb of 80/20 ground beef and left out the pork sausage. I made a copycat recipe of the onion soup mix using a recipe from this site except I left out the salt and followed the rest of the recipe as written. It was good but oniony with both the dry onion soup as well as the additional chopped onion. Luckily for us we like onions and liked the burgers. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Light and Easy Greek Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
This was very light and easy and great to take to a picnic or potluck since it has no mayonnaise. I scaled it down to 3 servings and made it as written and it was great. Thank you are sharing your recipe.

Chicken Surprise

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This recipe is named correctly because it was a pleasant surprise. Like other reviewers, I added seasoning because I was afraid it would be too bland for us. So before sautéing the chicken with a little olive oil in the skillet, I sprinkled it with black pepper, seasoned salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and poultry seasoning. In addition, I used canned tomatoes with basil, oregano, and garlic. With these tweaks the recipe tasted great. It is so easy and is a keeper.

Sauce Rosee

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This sauce is addictive! I need a 12-step program for it. Excuse me as I lick the bowl so I do not miss a drop of this sauce. Did I mention I really like this sauce? I just added this to my family favorites folder. I followed the directions until the tomato sauce. I substituted spaghetti sauce for that, and then substituted a light alfredo sauce for the heavy cream. I served it with tortellini. Excuse me while I go into my Sauce Rosee coma now.

Sweet and Tangy Slow Cooker Bar-B-Q Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
My husband raved about these ribs and what I good cook I was (thanks to this recipe). I followed the recipe except I only had about a half coup of ketchups left so I used spaghetti sauce for the other 1/2 cup. Followed the recipe as written otherwise. Thanks for sharing this recipe. We will be making it again. UPDATE: After pulling leftovers out of the freezer and reheating, they still taste great. The sauce is really good.

Picnic Marinated Summer Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
This is an easy, light summer slaw. I followed the recipe except left out the cucumbers just because I don't care for them. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
This was very good meatloaf. The texture was perfect and it was nicely spiced. I followed the recipe with the exception of subbing ketchup for the tomato paste (because I didn't want to open a can of tomato paste for only 1 TBL) and I used Montreal Steak Seasoning instead of salt and pepper. As we like spicy bold flavors next time I will probably follow other reviewers recommendations to add bbq sauce to give it a little bolder flavor.

Big Smokey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
These were good burgers but were too wet. I had to add bread crumbs to them. I think I will try these again and tweak them slightly.

Summer Anytime Crisp Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
This salad is very good. I enjoyed it. I thought the dressing went well with this. I did add jalapeños instead of green bell peppers to give it a little more kick. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Chicken Mango Salsa Salad with Chipotle Lime Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
I am the submitter of this recipe. It is one of my all-time favorite recipes. I created this the day after a fajita dinner with mango salsa. So the salsa was pre made and the bell peppers were already chopped. So it was only a matter of assembly. It is a great way to use leftovers. It tastes great with leftover rotisserie chicken, fajita chicken or blackened chicken. In Texas there is a chain of grocery stores that makes a great mango salsa and also sells a package of pre-chopped three color peppers that can be used as a short-cut. Either from scratch or using short-cuts the salad is delicious.

Honey-Soy Pork Chops from the Bradshaw Family

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
These were good and I did not even marinade them since I did not have time. I just sprinkled some crushed red pepper into the marinade and basted the boneless chops while they cooked. Next time I will marinade them. Definitely with trying.

Healthier Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
These were not bad but they didn't taste like the regular oatmeal cookie either. I could tell that it had less sugar. I often use reduced fat ingredients in many recipes but when it comes to cookies, I prefer to use the standard recipe. I will probably stick with the original recipe instead of making this one.

Green Bean Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I made this for our Memorial Day get together and it was a hit. I sauteed a sliced Vidalia Onion insteead of the red onion so it would not have too strong a raw onion taste. Also, I used white balsamic vinegar so it would not change the color of the green beans, added sliced cherry tomatoes, and served the blue cheese on the side since some in our group don't like it. I will definitely make this again.

"Pantry Raid" Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
This was awesome. I would give it 10 stars if I could. For me this is pure comfort food; and it is so easy. I cheated and used shredded rotisserie chicken, light cream cheese and substituted my customized Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread recipe with corn and jalapeños from this site instead of the cornbread mix. So it was a super fast dinner. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
