Gorgonzola Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
This sauce had great flavor, but I had to double the amount of gorgonzola to get a sauce that was creamy rather than oily. Next time I'll start by reducing the amount of butter to 2 tablespoons.

Slovak Stuffed Cabbage

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2002
I gave this recipe a try because of all the positive reviews. It was excellent! Like my grandmother's stuffed cabbage, but even better! I substituted extra ground beef for the pork and used white rice instead of brown because that's what I had on hand, but it was still delicious.

Hearty Meatball Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This makes a pretty tasty soup, but I had to make some adjustments based on what I had on hand. Instead of dried onion soup mix, I used 1 cup each of chopped fresh onions and celery, slowly sauteed over low heat for 10 minutes in 1 T. oil and then added 4 beef bouillon cubes along with the water. I substituted beef broth for the chicken broth, a can of diced tomatoes for the stewed tomatoes, and then left out the canned green beans because I didn't have any. I also added a cup of chopped cabbage to add some more fiber to the soup. I reduced the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in the meatballs to 1/2 cup each (otherwise the meatballs would be all filler) and added 1/2 tasp. of Italian seasoning. I thought it needed more seasoning when it was done, so I added some dried basil and oregano to it. I also added extra beef broth to balance out the extra veggies I put in. This is a good, hearty basic recipe that you can adjust depending on the veggies, broth and seasoning you have on hand.

Alabama Slammer II

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Oh, this is SO good! My drink doesn't look anything like the picture (too much pulp in the orange juice, I guess), but it tastes delicious!

Filet Mignon with Bacon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This sauce was outstanding! It perfectly complimented the beef tenderloin and my family loved it! I substituted chopped pancetta for the bacon to use up some leftover pancetta and added more half-and-half to make the sauce creamier. We also added a steak rub to the tenderloin before grilling it. We'll definitely be making this recipe part of our Christmas tradition!

Simple Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This is a delicious recipe with these changes -- reduce mayo to 1/2 to 3/4 cup, use 1/2 to 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese (not powdered), and add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder. Serve in an 8 x 8 casserole dish or something slightly smaller. I'm not a big mayo fan, so I tend to reduce the mayo and add more cheese, but you can play around a bit with the recipe. I've served this a number of times and have always had a great response to it.

Couscous Salad with Chickpeas, Dates & Cinnamon

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
Wow, this was good! It has an interesting mix of textures and flavors and can be served either cold or at room temperature. It tastes light, but it sticks with you, so that it makes a nice lunchtime salad. Chopping the dates was a nuisance (the only chopped dates I could find had added sugar), but was ultimately worth it for the final result. Next time I'll try making it with whole wheat couscous to make it even healthier.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
We thought this recipe was okay, but I wouldn't call it exceptional. The walnut oil was an expensive ingredient, but didn't seem to add that much extra flavor. I'll probably try the recipe again, though (since I have more walnut oil), but next time I'll add the chopped garlic suggested by the other posters.

Chinese Broccoli Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Delicious! I followed the suggestions of others and toasted the dry ingredients in a frying pan that I'd sprayed with cooking spray. I also substituted 2 tablespoons of sesame oil for some of the vegetable oil, which gave it great flavor. I didn't have oriental-flavored ramen, so I used chicken-flavored ramen and only used one seasoning packet. I used sesame seeds, but I think it would also be good with sunflower seeds. The great thing about this salad is that you can make the dressing and dry ingredients ahead of time and then just open a bag of broccoli slaw and toss it together quickly right before you eat. The ramen noodle/almond/sesame mix makes a lot, easily enough that you could double the amount of broccoli slaw.

Tackee David's Split Pea with Ham

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
This soup was a delicious alternative to my mom's more basic split pea soup. The herbs and garlic gave it great flavor. I didn't have marjoram, so I substituted oregano. I was also out of celery, so I added chopped carrots and a chopped baking potato instead. I'm sure it changed the flavor, but it was still quite good (and I'll try the celery another time). I also added some extra water, but I still ended up with a hearty, satisfying soup.

Asparagus, Chicken, and Pecan Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
My husband said this recipe was "outstanding!" I substituted sun-dried tomatoes for the red bell pepper and pine nuts for the pecans because that's what I had on hand, but it made a really good blend of seasonings. This is a great dish to make if you've got some leftover grilled chicken breasts from another meal. We'll definitely be making this recipe again and again!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
My family liked this recipe, which makes a good, basic lasagna. I substituted a pound of Italian sausage for a pound of the ground beef and doubled the amount of basil and oregano in this recipe. I reduced the salt by one teaspoon and reduced the sugar to 1/2 tablespoon or the sauce would have been too sweet. I also added 6 oz. of water to the sauce to thin it out a bit.

Black Bean and Corn Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2002
Served this at a family gathering and no one cared for it much. It was attractive, but decidedly bland.

Mostaccioli with Spinach and Feta

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I've been making this recipe for years and it really is delicious both hot or cold. We usually have it as a cold salad in the summer when the tomatoes are at their peak. You can easily substitute thawed frozen spinach for fresh -- it still tastes fine although it isn't quite as pretty. Plain feta cheese also works well in place of the tomato basil feta. I usually add another clove of garlic and 1/3 to 1/2 cup of toasted walnuts or pine nuts for a little more texture and flavor.

Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
The dressing for this salad is first rate -- light and flavorful! My husband doesn't like cabbage, so I used mixed salad greens, added sliced, cooked chicken, 1/2 cup of shredded carrots per salad and some mandarin oranges, and left out the onions and the sesame seeds. I've substituted both chow mein noodles and fried rice noodles for the ramen noodles with good results. So you can substantially alter the salad itself but still get good results with this wonderful dressing.

Cheese Crackers

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
So yummy! I tried this recipe to replace a similar recipe that I used to make, but honestly these little cheese crackers are much better! Instead of red pepper flakes, I used cayenne pepper (1/4 tsp. plus a couple of extra shakes) to get the flavor I was looking for. I was surprised what a difference the rice krispies made -- they lighten up the crackers and give them a nice crunch while still letting the cheesy flavor come through. Be sure to cool them on paper towels when they come out of the oven to absorb the excess fat. This recipe also makes a lot which is good because once you taste them, you're going to want more!

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
These appetizers were delicious! Instead of cooking my own bacon, I used half a jar of pre-cooked real bacon pieces to save some time. And I used the little phyllo cups to serve it in, baking the appetizers for about 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven. The recipe filled about 20 phyllo cups (not quite 1.5 boxes). You can make the filling the day before, bake it in the phyllo cups and have a hot tasty appetizer in 15 minutes.

Four Cheese Margherita Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
I love feta cheese, but I wasn't sure how I'd like it on a pizza. This recipe, however, was fabulous! This pizza was far better than any takeout pizza I can get around here. Even my son, who doesn't like feta cheese, thought this pizza rocked! I used a Boboli crust (baked it at 450 degrees per the Boboli instructions) and skipped the fontina because I didn't have any, but it was still a delicious pizza. I'll definitely try the fontina in the future to see if it makes this pizza even better.

Perfect Crab Cakes With Green Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I normally use a adapted recipe from this site (My Crab Cakes by Rod Mowery), but we were at the beach this past week and needed a simpler recipe with fewer ingredients so we tried this one. The results were excellent - a tender meaty crab cake with a nice crispy crust. After reading the suggestions of others, I doubled the hot sauce and Old Bay seasoning in the recipe, chilled the crab cakes for several hours before cooking, and patted them with panko crumbs before frying. This was a great beach recipe (good flavor, simple prep, few ingredients) and one that I'll definitely be using again!

Sesame Tempura Green Beans

Reviewed: May 7, 2005
This was my first time trying tempura -- and it was delicious! The sesame seeds add a nice flavor to the batter and the sauce is excellent. I tried several different vegetables, but the batter was so light that it didn't stick very well. Next time I'll drink some of that beer and use less in the batter!
