All American Roast Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2015
this is the way our butcher suggests roasting eye of round. As a matter of fact, this is what he has in the deli for roast beef sandwiches -- no other roast beef, just his that is roasted in the store. to those that say you need water and slow cooking, it depends on the cut of the roast! Different roasts require different methods of cooking. if folks are not sure, check with a butcher!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2015
My best batch was at about 5 and half minutes. But remember each microwave will be different. the last batch was garlic and crumbled rosemary! VERY addicting

Prosciutto Parmesan Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2015
this is so good AS IS with one exception: I used frozen peas and I used low fat half-n-half because that's what I use for coffee. To the lady that said to use turkey bacon--NO! the whole point of the recipe is the prosciutto. Basically, this is a once-in-a-while dish so have a good breakfast, a light lunch and splurge for supper. served with a nice salad and it was delish. If I was interested in making this light I'd look in the low calorie section. PEOPLE please stop making over the recipes and then rating your own %^#&^%* recipe. If you people to try YOUR recipe submit; otherwise, rate and review.

Rhubarb Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2015
This was really good as is. I cut back on the sugar ONLY because neither of us like a real sweet bread/muffin. When I make this again, I'm going to omit the topping and use the amount of sugar in the recipe to see if the topping added that much sweetness. both hubby and I thought it was fine with 1 Cup of brown sugar in the mix and the sugar topping. Thank you for a very good rhubarb recipe.

French Canadian Tourtiere

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2015
I live in Vermont about 15 miles south of Canada and this is very close to what I grew up eating. I think my uncle's mom (from Lacolle) didn't use ground beef. I tried this recipe and it was very good; a little different from Yvette's though (again, I'm thinking it's the ground beef). We have this around Christmas time every year. My husband is from California and had never heard of this. First time I made it he ate 1/2 of the pork pie! I like mine with a some gravy and just veggies on the side.

Spanish Moroccan Fish

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2015
I used only to 2 pounds of fish for 4 people and it was still too much. Also the flavor was bland. Would try this again with major overhaul.

Canja

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2015
very good BUT 3 pounds of chicken for just 6 servings is way toooooo much. that is almost double a normal portion of meat; and this doesn't even include the ham. I used about 1.5 pounds of chicken; when I added this recipe to DietPower using the revised amount of chicken the calories dropped by almost 200. My other change was using cilantro instead of parsley--only because it was what I had.

Soccer Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2015
Loved it. My only changes were I cut back on the oil (just our family preference) and I didn't use as much sugar. To the person that gave "the most helpful review" Um, first people do realize that if they want more veggies they can add them; that is NOT a review. Also, when you make the all the changes you said to make you basically have a different salad. Don't bother reviewing because you are not review the original recipe. We've had this with steak and chicken (grilled both times). I had roasted veggies but wanted some thing cook and crisp too. this fit the bill perfectly. Thanks for sharing

Hungarian Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2015
it was too sweet for us and that was even with cutting back on the ketchup. Also, I'm not sure why the person is calling this Hungarian Pork chops. my In-Laws are Hungarian--like born and raised there--and mother-in-law never made anything like this. Went to several different relatives places for meals and pork was rarely served....maybe this is a 'newer' dish in Hungary. Also, that is not much paprika for a Hungarian dish. I'd say this is more of a Russian dish (or Ukraine etc). JMO

Herbed Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
to reviewer under "MOST HELPFUL" where does it claim these are gourmet chicken nuggets? your comment is not a review! I used everything except for the red chili pepper flakes and I added garlic powder. I had a recipe for a fried chicken salad and I used this recipe in place of the fried chicken and it was really good!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2014
very good! I cut back on the crushed red pepper flakes ONLY because I've not tolerated spicy food lately. Will keep this on the shrimp rotation. and people who put up there own recipe and give the existing recipe low ratings--here's a clue. I DO NOT care what your recipe calls for or that you do this because your 2 year old doesn't like 3/4 of the ingredients! you skew the rating by doing this. If you want people to know about YOUR recipe put it up on the site!

Southern Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Mushrooms, and Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
people quit reviewing when you haven't freaking made the darn recipe! you skew the rating when you do this. frankly, I don't care that YOU think there is too much bacon in the recipe. If I (or anyone else) wants to add a pull pound of bacon I can. My only addition was to add a bit of fresh thyme to the cabbage as it cooked. I like thyme with sauted mushrooms and we both thought it was good with the cabbage. I served mashed red potatoes--reminded me a variation on Colcannon which we love.

Gunline Coffee

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
my friend and I started making this about 25 years ago to put into the goodies baskets we made for the holidays. We each had around 12 baskets we made for people so we'd get a mug that was appropriate for them (one friend loved to be out in her garden so I found a garden themed mug, had a friend that was a dog lover--dog mug for her etc.). We make a couple of different kinds of cookies, some kind of quick bread, and sugar-spiced mixed nuts and some of the coffee mix in a little jar. We'd save the boxes and cut them down and wrap the box with some kind of holiday paper so it would look nice (save a little money on buying a large container to put everything in) and after all the goodies were placed into the box, we'd just wrap with saran wrap and put a ribbon and bow on. Always well received!

Wisconsin Native's Beer Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
it was very good. I used 1/2 sharp and 1/2 extra sharp cheese. I put a few home made croutons on top. To the person that said her vegetables were not soft after a half hour--that doesn't seem possible unless your stove was set at the lowest possible setting the entire time. I cooked the vegetables for about 7 minutes before adding the the other ingredients and they were softened nicely. This is my usual routine for cooking the onion, celery, carrot combo for any soup/stew.

Hummus and Prosciutto Wrap

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
tasty sandwich. will keep in the rotation for sure. BTW, the person who reviewed "Watch the salt" that is not a review! yes, the sandwich comes in a bit high for salt, but if you make your own hummus that helps cut down a bit and if nothing else is salted in the wrap than you know the only salt is coming from the prosciutto. I will add some red onion next time. I used a spring mix of dark lettuces and I used only 2 slices for each wrap; only because I make another sandwich which calls for 3 and we like it better with 2--just a personal preference. And, as we are getting to the point of not getting farm fresh veggies, good tomatoes are harder to come by. I will try this with roasted red peppers!

Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2014
I got a version of this recipe from a friend over 20 years ago. Judy called it "Stuff". I add a medium onion, a zucchini cut into circles about 1/2 inch thick, and 4 medium to large mushrooms (halved). I have used all kinds of the different flavored chicken sausages to make this dish. A very versatile recipe. I make this 2 times a month and hubby and I have leftovers for lunch!

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2014
great recipe. we lived in Japan for 3 years and this reminds me of the recipe a neighbor lady made. someone mentioned on here that if you are looking for a fried chicken recipe that there are other southern friend chicken recipes that are much better. Well, DUH! this is a Japanese style recipe, not southern style.

Zucchini Puffs

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2014
these were good, but definitely needed 'something' which I am not sure what that is YET. Also, if you are deep frying and the food is greasy 1. Oil is not hot enough or 2. you are putting in too many pieces and the the temp of the oil drops down to low.

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
I added toasted sunflower seeds and black olives to the cream cheese along with some garlic and herbs. You could also get roasted red peppers added to it I made the above mentioned modifications and it was good.

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
Hubby and I are not fennel fans, so I make my own sausage using ground pork (90/10 ratio). Other than that change I followed the recipe and it was REALLY good. I followed a few suggestions and eased up a bit on the amount of broth. I also added a diced carrot. I want to make this with brown rice next time. thanks for such a good recipe
