German Beef Rouladen

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
I grew up on rouladen ... my wonderful nana makes it for special occasions.. I therefore combined this recipe, with her recipe .. her recipe calls for stuffing in the middle (bread crumbs, mixed with a little worcestershire sauce + a egg).. you lay out the steak, opt for a little dijon mustard and onions, lay some bacon on there, then scoop a tbsp of stuffing, and roll it up/tie it ... it tastes delcious! my boyfriend grew up eating rouladen the traditional way, with a pickle in the middle, so I made a few like that, too ... I followed the recipe to a t, minus the additions of stuffing and/or pickles... rouladen to me is one of the best things out there .. it's great to see other variations of a great thing, thanks for the great recipe :))

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
this was delightful! I made this for our dessert when we had some company over for dinner... made that morning so it sat in the fridge all day. I melted the chocolate slowly in a saucepan on the stove on very low heat, stirring constantly. I had my big mixing bowl chilled in the freezer, so I used that for when I whipped the whipping cream. I whipped it on the 'high' setting for at least 8-10 min, not stopping once. I then seperated the egg yolks, and whisked it in a bowl with the sugar and some cold coffee, and a 'dash' of vanilla like others suggested (omitted the water), before adding it to the pot so the yolks didn't turn scrambl-y on me. I whisked it on med-high continuously and it became a frothy mixture (smells goood! with the coffee and the sugar and vanilla). I then added the choc. to it, stirrred well, then put the saucepan in my fridge for 5 min., came back, whisked it some more.. put it back in .. put some laundry in the dryer, came back, whisked it again, then added it to the whipping cream bowl and used the beaters on high for another few minutes... flufffyyy! come dessert time I put the mousse into martini glasses, sprinkled some icing sugar lightly overtop, and put a few raspberries ontop of each glass with some chocolate mint leave things I had in the freezer. my company was super impressed with the mousse, and the presentation. and it was easy!!, just follow some key steps as others mentioned :))))

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
this is one of my favorite salads now.. fruit can easily be mixed in as well. Chunks of pear works very well (paired with pork).. blackberries work well, too... love the candied walnuts! this is one of the few salads my kids actually eat

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
this recipe is a keeper. I followed the recipe exact in regards to the spices/seasonings, but instead of the ground beef chuck I used a 60/40 version of ground beef, ground pork. I also used some chorizo, a package of bacon cut into 2" chunks that I browned lightly in the frying pan then added to the pot .. for the beans I added 2 cans of a '6 bean medley' that I found at the grocery store.. then I pureed some jalapenos with some hot red chili peppers and put that in there with the red hot sauce and omitted the 1/4 C. chili powder.. the spice was perfect. used a 'aged oak ale' that has a real nutty/honey flavor, and monterey jack cheese with the tortilla chips for the finale... did let it sit over night, it thickens and is perfect. makes alot for leftovers/in the freezer..

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Mmm I absolutely adore mexican food, and this recipe hits the spot... my Nana has a authentic enchilada recipe from a old lady in mexico that she brought back to Canada after one of her many travels, and it tastes *exactly* like this... I fry the tortillas, double the sauce, and use cream of chicken soup!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
awesome recipe. make as directed. mine came out sooo soft, just make sure not to overcook them. I set my timer for 10-11 min., but watched them after 9 min. LIKE A HAWK. I used a teaspoon and dropped mounds of it onto my cookie sheet (refridgerated dough, another must-do). Rinse sheet with cool water after each use, that tip helps out alot so that the warm cookie sheet dosn't make your cookie dough balls spread out flat. this cookie recipe, and the 'soft gingersnaps' from Shawn Barto are my fav cookie recipes on this site.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
omg. delicious! however you make the sauce, make sure you double it. first time I made this I doubled the sauce, and there's no way the sauce from the original recipe would be enough... here's how I did my sauce: 2/3c. white sugar. 2/3 c. rice wine vinegar. 2 tbsps orange marmalade (I prefer that to the oj concentrate, it has orange slices/chunks in it) 2 overflowing tbsps of soy sauce, 1 tsp hot pepper sauce (I use Sriracha paste, but franks red hot or anything like that would work), which helps to cut the sweetness a bit... then ONE tbsp grated fresh ginger, I think 3 would be too much.. and then stuck to the 2 tsps of orange zest, and did 3 tbsps minced garlic. for the veggies I used a mix of red pepper, snow peas, water chesnuts, some bean sprouts, and fresh broccoli. The sauce on this is a winner, I made it a week later, same exact recipe, with grilled chicken. it was jsut as tasty... would also go good with sliced pork roast/tenderloin, and I would also like to try this sauce sometime with ribs or deep-fried wings! yummm!

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
it's summer and I am on a greek salad craze .. too hot to have the oven on all the time and greek salad goes with any kind of meat ... THIS salad is knock your socks off !! ... I made a *huge* bowl of this with our dinner, expecting to have leftovers for lunches, ect. .. and we ate it *all* .. I went back for thirds, and everyone else did, too .. I followed the recipe as stated, but for the sauce I used Olive Oil (healthier) and I didn't use the whole 1/4 c. I just measured it out and when the salad was done I drizzled it on bit by bit... I like red wine vinegar in my greek salad so I added that .. I just drizzled it on (1tsp?) and lots of lemon juice (1 or 2 tsp). and I love feta...lots of feta! great summer salad

Laura's Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
my new favorite potatoe recipe :) I used 1/4C. Olive Oil, skipped the butter, and it turns out you really don't need any.. and used 3 tbsp's lemon juice instead of the two.. I flipped and tossed my potatoes in the pan every 15/20min. so they browned evenly... they came out perfect!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
this sauce is awesome! I have used it for salad, and as a spread on sandwiches (very good!).. but I usually make it to go with the 'Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings' recipe n this site .. I make the buffalo sauce and dredge the wings in that, Leave a few un-sauced for the kids, just deep-fried, and on the side I make this sauce for them... the sauce (and wings) are gobbled up instantly... also very good with fries topped with cheese, fresh cooked bacon chunks, and green onion! just drizzle it on or do the dipping thing....

Penne with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
This is delicious, quick and easy! I couldn't find any broccoli rabe, so I just used regular broccoli. I followed another reviewers suggestion and only used 2 tsp of the red pepper flakes.. Perfect spicyness factor. For those who don't like spice I would suggest to skip the flakes and just use some diced red or green pepper... I have made this recipe a few times as stated, but when I made it today, I had some Alfredo sauce in the fridge.. I added some of that at the end of cooking (not much, just enough to coat it.. Maybe 1/4 or 1/3cup?) and it didn't change the flavor, but was really good! Just creamier/added to the sauce..any pasta noodle would work well (bowtie, elbow, fettucini, ect) a sprinkle of fresh parm ontop is a must!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Mmm comfort food ... this hit the cheese-y spot. I made as directed, only thing I did different was add 1/2C. chopped onion and 1/2C. chopped red pepper, sauteed them and then mixed into the bowl with everything else.... I would stick to the potato soup, it comes out so creamy and the taste is like scalloped potatoes... I wouldn't change a thing. great alternative for a breakfast, would be great with some bacon and toast on the side.... keeper.

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
this is a awesome sidedish! I have never had german potato salad, so wasn't sure what to expect, but wanted a different potato dish for dinner... I followed the recipe exactly, have made it numerous times now it is a family fav.. I boil the potatoes with the skin on, then let them sit on the counter to cool. when they are cool enough to touch, I peel the skins off.. I definitely use *more* bacon! the vinegar/water ratio is perfect. these also make amazing hashbrowns for breakfast the next day, just throw them in the frying pan with a tsp of coconut oil/olive oil and some ore fresh herbs. a keeper!

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
great recipe! I also, like most people, substituted sausage for the beef...other than that, I followed the recipe exact. I stuffed the shells uncooked, using a ziploc bag w/ the tip cut off. this easily made two 9x13 pans of manicotti, so I made the white sauce twice. not doubled the sauce, but actually made it two times in a row, to pour into each seperate pan. (the other pan I put in my freezer).. I bought fresh spinach, added it by sight (I added it to the frying pan w/ the meat..) didn't even cut up half of a 'bundle', and it seemed adequate. will make again!
