Cube Steak Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I like trying new recipes with the freezer full of venison I have each fall. This recipe looked good enough to gamble making a double recipe...and it was delicious! I'm giving it five stars even though, like many other reviewers, I think using the tomato sauce originally recommended is too bland and flavorless (I tried the sauce before putting on the cutlets). Either make your own marinara or use a store bought sauce and you'll have a restaurant worthy dish. I used a combination of italian breadcrumbs and panko for breading. I like that this dish would be good with whatever sauce you have on hand as well as whatever breading and cheese you have on hand. I did cook a bit longer than specified; 30 minutes and 10 minutes and the cutlets were fork tender perfect.

Mexican Potato Nachos

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
What a wonderful, versatile recipe! Have enjoyed the recipe made per directions (other than slicing potatoes 1/3" with mandolin for nice thin slices that cook well). I have also made great "nachos" by throwing together bits and pieces of flavorful leftovers (carnitas and chili beans once, leftover texas cavier and avocado slices another, veggie chili was good as well). I like that the potatoes are hearty and filling and make the dish go a long way on a budget. One big baking potato filled my full size baking sheet with 20 nice uniform slices.

Tuna and Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
The BEST tuna salad EVER. This should be renamed "Tuscan Tuna Salad." I made a double batch the first time I tried this (used 3 cans tuna). Added a full 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (3 lemons). Added 1 c. chopped artichoke hearts (they were oil packed and even drained added enough oil to my tuna canned in water to achieve moistness and good flavor). Don't eat this salad until it has melded for a day. Absolutely unbelievably bright, fresh, satisfying...all who tried consumed huge quantities. Excellent to use for stuffing in a vine ripened tomato. I would not delete any of the ingredient...especially the fresh parsley and in the full amount called for. This particular combination of zingy red onion, salty black olives (used kalamata for a total tuscan treat), fresh zesty parsley, zippy fresh lemons, robust chickpeas and good old tuna absolutely LOVE each other. The feta is just the crown jewel. GO Krissy G!

Butternut Squash Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
This is the best butternut squash dish I have ever had, and I love butternut squash. I substituted feta for blue cheese. Made a double batch and was sorely tempted to eat the entire pan. This was absolutely amazing. I honestly can't imagine anyone not liking this. The dish was savory and fragrant and satisfying. Bonus points for making my house smell heavenly. I am going to make one small variation next time and add toasted pine nuts to the dish as I am using this as an entree.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
An excellent recipe for a stew that doesn't require browning the meat prior to cooking. That said, I still prefer a slow cooker stew where the meat has been browned first. This will be my "go-to" recipe for when I'm in a hurry.

Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Tried this on a whim for Thanksgiving dessert. What a delicious dessert...an unusual bundt cake in that it is light, moist and fluffy as opposed to rich and dense (which is also good). I don't like drinks made with Bailey's but I LOVED the subtle taste of the liquor in this cake. p.s. EVERYONE had seconds!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
Four stars as made per recipe. Five stars with some simple changes. The tomato sauce is too overpowering for all these great veggies (we use fresh, not canned or frozen). Use San Marzanos, crushed instead of the sauce or fresh if handy.

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
A winner with everyone who has tried it. A versatile, easy, make ahead brunch dish that tastes great in every variation I've made...use almost any bread, any cheese, throw in some leftover veggies...it is all good!

Pecan Pie Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
YUM!!! Love pecan pie but not the overly thick filling layer. I love this shortbread crust (made with brown sugar and butter) and the thin layer of filling and lots and lots of pecans. Awesome dessert...and easy on the budget and time.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
I reduced the sugar per other comments and this was still so overly sweet that it was inedible. We scraped off all of the topping and mixed the apples in with unsweetened apples to salvage this.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
yummy simple budget friendly recipe that yields a lot of food. I do as many others and cut the roast into chunks and triple the seasonings so that more of the meat has a full flavor. For those looking to include a "side dish" give this a try: Double the broth to 32 oz. Put 1 lb of dried pinto beans in the bottom of the crock pot with the broth and bay leaves. Put the seasoned roast on top of the bean/broth mix and cook per original recipe. The seasonings on the meat and the long cook time make for some very yummy beans. Add them to your burritos, nachos, or serve as a side dish with or without rice. You can also give the beans a little more zip by adding a can of rotel with the broth...good either way.
