BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
This recipe works beautifully with a good Carolina barbeque sauce. This site doesn't have a very good authentic recipe for BBQ sauce, so I used my own. A pork shoulder works just fine. Skip the ribs, save some money.

Linguine in Spicy Red Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
This is a wonderful recipe, especially to be so easy. Not quite as spicy as I'd hoped for, though. Just a touch more red pepper, maybe. The sauce takes a while to reduce to a less liquid consistency, but I wouldn't drain the tomatoes like some of the other commenters have. It would detract from the flavor too much. Just be patient and cook it down. Also, I don't put the olives in until near the end, just long enough to warm up. I have no idea what's wrong with the negative reviewers. I absolutely love this!

Delicious Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
This is a fantastic curry. I didn't change a thing, and wouldn't want to.

Fabulous Fajitas

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
This has become a regular around our house. Fantastic and fast! I do change a few things. 2 green peppers is overkill, so I only use 1. I also double the mushrooms and add sour cream and baby spinach as toppings. Yummy stuff! The italian dressing mix is a great trick!

Janet's Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
This is the best chicken casserole I've ever tasted. Definitely will do again. The only change I made was using 2 small cans of mushrooms instead of fresh ones and frozen peas and carrots rather than canned. Delicious!

French Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Not too bad. The family loved it, but it was a little bit too dense for my taste. Makes great french toast! Update: I must have misread the recipe the first time made this wonderful bread. I've made it several times since I first reviewed it, and it has been perfect every time. I'm changing my rating from 3 stars to 5.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
This is a fantastic and simple dish. I'll be doing this again--often! I used half-and-half, because that's what I had on hand. It would definitely be a little bit better with heavy cream. It needs the richness.

Veggie Lasagna Florentine

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2013
We LOVE this recipe. I use ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese, and add a splash of balsamic vinegar to the sauce instead of the brown sugar. You can play with the flavors all you want, and it's still a good dish. I disagree with the no-boil comments, though. Boil the noodles first for the right texture. If you don't, the crunchy parts that stick out that everybody loves to fight over get burnt and chewy.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I have no idea how this recipe actually tastes using green beans. I used asparagus instead. I also skipped the parsley, as it was superfluous. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing. It was a big hit with the family at Easter! You can just trim the asparagus or cut it into bite-sized segments, steam the asparagus for 5 minutes to soften, then saute with the rest of the ingredients. I'll be doing this again and again. Even my 3 year old enjoyed it.

I'll probably never make another lentil soup. Can't get much better than this.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2012
Love this! Do double the sauce, especially if serving with rice. I leave out the garlic, because there's really no benefit from that little bit of garlic anyway, and this is a no-chop meal without it. Lazy. This is a good dish for the lazy. :-)

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Didn't change a thing except to crush some cookies to go on top. Best banana pudding ever!

Naan

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
A few tips: Leave the garlic out. It makes no sense. Use a pizza stone in a 425 oven, turning once for browning on both sides, and drizzle the butter on after the bread is finished. Also, if you have a tortilla press, use it! Save yourself the trouble of rolling the dough. This bread isn't exactly authentic. As my husband's Indian co-worker says, if it has any flavor, you're not doing it right! This is very good bread, though. I've made it several times using both my pizza stone and my Foreman grill. Use a stone if you have one. You get a better texture this way. This recipe has become my go-to for naan, even though it's not remotely what I expected the first time I made it.

Asparagus Ham Fettuccine

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
I'm not normally a big fan of ham and cheese together, but I had a *lot* of ham left over after Christmas, so I needed a new way to serve it. Ham and cheddar are overpowering for me, normally. But this dish was great! The sage added a bright aftertaste to the ham and cheese that mellowed the flavors considerably. My husband loved it, and my 3 year-old was equally impressed. Definitely will make this one again. I subbed pecans for the walnuts, since I didn't have any. This dish would go well over brown rice as well as pasta.
