Three Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2014
I agree that the sauce needs to be pumped up, but the author of this recipe doesn't mention what type of sauce to use... that, dear cooks is of course left up to you! Since my family loves my homemade sauce with sausage, that it's what I used. I cooked the pasta under al dente to make them easier to handle and piped in the cheese mixture with a pastry bag. A large baggie with a hole cut in the corner works well too. Less mess!

Country-Style Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
Well, photo of this dish looked great... nice looking rich gravy! I baked it at 300, being nervous about 350 for 2 hrs, and although the steak was nice and tender, the gravy was pasty looking, tasting, and had no flavor. We were fighting for the S & P! I was glad I seasoned the meat before I floured them. If I ever make this again, I'll add way less flour to the broth and season it well before pouring over the meat. A bit disappointed after the long bake time.

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
I liked how easy these were to make and surprised I haven't tried home made egg rolls before as much Asian cooking as I do. Because of that, I have plenty of condiments to spruce up the flavor! I used the slaw mix and added a bit more shredded carrots, added a Tbsp. each of soy & Mirin, used a large minced clove of fresh garlic instead of powder, and increased the amount fresh ginger called for. I added a squirt of Sriracha sauce for kick. Hard to stop eating these! (These can be frozen!)

Cranberry Salad III

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
This is a very old recipe that I learned to make from my grandmother. She made it every Christmas dinner and when she passed away my mother took it over and so on...We called it the Christmas salad and the only thing we do differently is add an extra layer of lime (green) jello which has minced celery added. Great combo!

Holiday Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
Last year, I bought a grocery store bakery brownie and just let it sit out over night, worked out fine. What I did differently, was to add a tablespoon of Creme de Cacao (chocolate liquor) along with the rum, & I rolled them lightly in chocolate sprinkles just after the melted chocolate had set. Took them to a Christmas party and they were quite the hit! This year I'm making batches to add to other goodies for gifts. If you make these right, 5 stars is what you should be rating this recipe!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
This has replaced my old stand by recipe. Easy to make and very easy to work with...I didn't even chill it. And best of all it tastes great! Thanks for posting!

Easy Chicken and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
We love soups in the colder months with a hearty loaf of artisan bread! I have been trying to find a corn chowder like my mom's and this came close! I had a bag of frozen yellow corn, and a can of creamed corn in the pantry, so that's what I used. This recipe needed some seasoning though! I like that the recipe calls for nutmeg which is great in creamy soups. I also added a half of small jar of pimento which gives great flavor to creammy soupy and used white pepper.

I too made some changes to the raspberry sauce, but giving 5 stars for the great idea for a nice newer fall recipe for chops! We all enjoyed this and tasty accompanied with Au Gratin potatoes, and candied carrots.

Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I'm giving this 5 stars basically because of "stepperanddaniel's" creativity. I usually make a dinner with a Halloween theme, but couldn't think of a new idea & happy I ran across it. I made these with orange bell peppers for Halloween last night and the grand kids who were visiting loved them & even the hubby got a kick out of them! I did use my mom's recipe that I grew up with because it's tried and true (and love that it has rice in the mix) So...I can't really rate the recipe, but just wanted to say thanks much for sharing the idea!

Chef John's Swedish Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2013
I thought this recipe was really good, although I share the opinion of another reviewer which is to make & cook the meatballs first. I was in a rush so this made the cooking time faster, and took a couple extra shortcuts. I did not saute the onions-I just minced them, and did not chill the meatballs either, I just rolled them & tossed them right in the oven. (came out fine!) I started the gravy (I also added a bit of nutmeg to the sauce)after the meatballs were in the oven for about 10 minutes so both were hot & ready at the same time. I should add that I only made enough meatballs for 3 but kept the gravy amount as written so we would have plenty for the egg noodles we topped this dish with. We loved the flavor, and these will replace the recipe I've used in the past!

Sauce Rosee

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
We really liked this sauce although I started with less olive oil (6 tbls. not necessary). I tossed grilled chicken and penne with the sauce and it came out very nice.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I was in a rush and requested to make gingerbread cookies so this recipe was great for me. This rolled out easily without stickiness and very easy to cut out and position. I did bake them for only 8 minutes on the second tray and liked them a tad softer. I doubled the recipe and glad I did as the yield was much better. I did add clove and nutmeg to the fold for a bit more traditional flavor. I will certainly be making these again to add to our Christmas cookie platter. Thanks for sharing this Kim!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
Better than my mom's which I have been making for eons, and that is saying a lot! The work is worth it, and my family even wanted the leftovers again the following night. I can't believe anyone could say they were disappointed in this recipe, my goodness! Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe John!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
I grew zucchini this summer and had quite a few! I made this bread with my first ripe one and the family devoured it! I spent an afternoon grating a bunch of them at the end of the season and froze the 2 cups needed in individual freezer bags to enjoy this yummy bread throughout the winter. Excellent recipe!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
This is the first time I have made a creamy casserole versus just baking sliced up and sugared sweet potatoes. Everyone at thanksgiving LOVED this casserole and was asked for the recipe by several people. I will be adding it to my holiday menus from now on! I did add a bit cinnamon & nutmeg to the mix, which I felt it needed. I loved this topping...searched to find a recipe without the usual overly sweet marshmallows...and so happy I found this recipe~thanks Tina B!

Corn Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
I thought this was a great find! Looking for a different type of corn side for Thanksgiving and was happy to come across this. I had a half red bell pepper I needed to use up so I diced and replaced it for the green chilies, and when I do make this again I will probably stick with the change as we all loved the flavor it gave. I may use half green and red for Xmas dinner for that festive look! And yes, it did have a souffle quality.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2012
I really like this marinade, but I just had to add a bit of powdered chipotle for a little kick. It rained so I cooked them in the oven on a raised rack and basted a couple times with the marinade. I used boneless thighs...so much more flavor than the every day breast! Turned out great, and nice to have another marinade under the belt, so to speak!

Pot Stickers (Chinese Dumplings)

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
These were OK, but still prefer the pork & ginger version...and before I made these I cut WAY back on the shrimp and beef! I make my own dipping sauce: 1/3 C soy sauce, 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar, (or Mirin if you like a sweeter sauce) 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 1/3 C sliced green onions, & 1 Tbls of Sambal. (An Asian condiment found in Asian or some grocery stores.)

Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
I added pumpkin pie spice instead of just the cinnamon, and added mini chocolate chips. I didn't frost them and they were great. I think just the cinnamon would not have been enough flavor for these cookies.

Traci's Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
I'll give it 5*s since I,m sure it's great without alterations! Was looking for a creamy chicken casserole...and used this base but made it with what I had on hand. Wanted to make right away so I did not refrigerate. I halved the recipe & still had enough to freeze (just 2 of us) I cooked & cooled penne pasta & browned the cubes of chicken. I heated the soup & milk (evaporated) and added 1/2 C of cream cheese & 1/2 C sharp cheddar off the heat. I also added a cup of peas & carrots, used white pepper and a dash of nutmeg and a bit of fresh basil. I topped it with a mixture of panko and grated Parmesan for a little crunch. Came out great and only took about 25 minutes in the oven.
