Imitation Crabmeat Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
Just as most other reviewers advised ; cut down the Italian dressing to 1/3 cup to avoid too much liquid. I also added 1 LB diced cooked shrimp & served in Pita pockets. Top with lettuce , tomato , pickles, shredded cheese or whatever you want to stuff in those pockets with this & you have a great meal.

Baked Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
This is it ! I've been trying different ways to cook some lamb shoulder chops that went on sale recently. As others have suggested, I used Italian bread crumbs + some grated Parmesan cheese & rosemary in the breading. Also added some honey to the Worcestershire-egg wash. My chops were kind of thin, so only cooked 15 minutes each side, they came out perfect.

Berry Barbecued Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
It cracks me up on this site when I see reviewers substitute main ingredients for something not even close. Pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, and apple sauce are no way even close to fresh cranberries. When you substitute the main ingredient - You are NOT reviewing the same recipe. I made this exactly as written, and thank you Doris - this recipe was delicious ! I really got a kick out of hearing the cranberries "pop" in the sauce - I never knew they did that when cooked. The sweetness of the orange juice, sugar, and BBQ sauce was countered very nice by the tartness of the cooked berries, and when the pork juices mixed in....... oh boy was that nice.

Pineapple Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
Just happened to pick up some reduced price beef round steak (already thinly sliced-perfect for stir fry) at my local grocery store & gave this recipe a try. It came out absolutely delicious. I tend to try and stay true to the original posters' recipes, but took MayGanB's advice and substituted sugar snap peas for the green beans, and water chestnuts for the chilies (used what I had on hand). I did stick to the original marinade/sauce however - thanks Helen - an excellent blend of flavors. *Note to others*- some are saying to double the sauce; you will need an extra can of pineapple for the juice, because one 20 oz. can works out just right for the juice needed for the marinade/sauce - as listed above. I also marinated for about 2 hours - the beef was extremely tender.

Easy Seafood Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
Simple to make with excellent results. I have to agree with CurtisLee though- 3-4 stalks of chopped celery is fine, not a whole bunch. I also advise making this the day or night before serving, the cabbage needs a bit more time to soften. I've made it several times now and took Jen K.'s advice and tried it with shredded carrots. I also add about 1/4 cup vinegar to the mayo/sugar mix to help soften the cabbage. Serve as is, or in Pita bread pockets.

Orange-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
This glaze rocks ! I've made it several times recently, only changes I've done is use sliced oranges on top of meat instead of limes. And as others who have suggested - this is great on thick cut pork loin (boneless chops) and yes - chicken breasts. I suggest not skipping any ingredient, once you have them at home - this recipe uses such small amounts, you can make it many times.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I had a craving for Chinese restaurant-style Lo Mein, and after reading the 12 or so different variations on here, this one is as good as any (the process is mostly the same for all). I followed this recipe, but with these changes: I marinated the chicken overnight, used real Oriental Lo Mein noodles, and since I don't like mushrooms; I substituted other veggies- sliced onion, carrots, green peppers, water chestnuts, spring sprouts, and snow peas. (Hey) add what you like. Sure it was a combo of chicken & veggie Lo Mein , but wow, was it good. Used the base sauce here, and as others suggested- skipped the cup of water, and added a TBL of both Hoisin sauce & Oyster sauce (again- make it to your taste). All those Oriental flavors of sesame, ginger, garlic, Hoisin & Oyster sauce + the flavorful chicken & crisp veggies is like a party in your mouth. Don't be afraid to make a variation that suits you or your family's likes or dislikes.
