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
there used to be a sandwich shop in Sacramento (late 80s) called Callahans. They made some really interesting sandwiches. BUT, they made a KILLER veggie similar to this one. they 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. It has been like 26 years and I still haven't had a veggie sandwich come close to that one! Now, I made the above mentioned modifications and it was good, but not Callahan's 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

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
This was a really good dish. I made a few adjustments based on what I had on hand. I used zucchini and yellow squash, added a large diced mushroom, and used canned tomatoes (didn't have fresh on hand). I used 2 cloves of garlic and omitted the garlic salt. Finally, I did not have dried basil so I used Italian season blend. Because it is just Hubby and me, I used my small casserole (1 qt. size) and there was enough left over to put into his lunch tomorrow. I plan to add this into my rotation of sides. Next time, I want to make this with added cooked sausage and use feta and mozzarella. Many thanks for a delicious recpe that can be altered so many ways!

Vegetable Cheese Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
the flavor was good. I'm giving 4 stars because of how easy this is to make. The next time I make this, I'll do everything except use the cheese stuff. I'll make a quick cheese sauce and add that. Also, I'll add just a bit of cayenne--not much just a pinch folks don't bother to rate the recipe if you are going to change everything buy the name! you are rating your own recipe!!!!!

Fully Loaded Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
I use Blue Cheese instead of cheddar. very tasty--hubby even likes this one and he doesn't care for raw cauliflower. If I am making this early in the day, I blanch the cauliflower for about 45 seconds

Rigatoni with Italian Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
OK folks use some common sense--if you are using plain tomatoes--no garlic or herbs than the recipe is probably going to be bland! I used plain, added some Italian seasoning and garlic and this was good and hearty! the next night I added homemade chicken broth and we had a soup!

The Best Caesar Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
I am giving this 5 stars even though I make this 'mock' Caesar dressing a bit different --for the most part it is the same as mine. my recipe doesn't use the egg substitute. unless you want a really eggy dressing it is not necessary as there are eggs in mayo. also, I use canned anchovies sometimes :) my favorite dressing.

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
Awesome recipe! and YES you do need to season this one. I'm so tired of people saying "OH, it was bland" Hello, if you don't see salt or a seasoning salt listed, it will be bland especially if you use a lot of salt in your diet. I always salt a little when no salt is listed...

Chef John's Beef Goulash

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
Very good! my ex in-laws are from Hungary and this is pretty close to Suzie's recipe. I don't remember caraway seeds being in it. I don't like them--I would have remembered those. She also made the same dish with chicken and boneless pork. YUM! and to the person that said this is supposed to be a soup. You are wrong--goulash is a stew like meal

Beef, Green Chili and Tomato Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
Awesome! I doctored just a bit by adding a diced red pepper and poblano that I had to use or toss. market had stew beef at a better price than chuck roast so I used that. It was so good--served it over rice and had veggies on the side. Tomorrow night I'll be using the leftovers in a pulled beef enchilada! THANK YOU for sharing this one -- it is a keeper for us!

A Homemade San Francisco Treat: Chicken Vermicelli Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
I have done this for method of many, many years. I doctor up the spices according to what we having for main entree. My favorite recipe is to make a lemon/kalamata olive/feta chicken dish and when the rice is ready to serve add a bit of lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon--top of each serving with a bit of feta.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
We have really enjoyed this salad. And what's funny is that I really don't like ranch dressing on a tossed salad, but this works well with the pasta. I've made it 5 or 6 times. I did change a few things though. I use the dry ranch dressing from our local natural food store--it is not as salty to me. Also, I did not use tomato because 1) I don't like a salad the next day that has tomato in it--too mushy for me and 2) I was on dialysis and was very limited on tomato products. So, I used a jar of roasted red peppers in place of the tomato. I also added about 5 or 6 chopped green onions. Finally, for any salad that I use mayo I use a combo of mayo and fat free plain greek yogurt of low fat sour cream. This has become a real favorite in our home. Thank you sharing the recipe!

"Pantry Raid" Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
Very tasty dish. I did make minor changes--I had a 1/2 red pepper leftover and about 1 serving of corn so I added those. I also used my own homemade taco seasoning to control the salt. Next time I may omit the cornbread mix and serve over rice. I also added some fresh lime juice and cilantro to each serving.

Baked Mexicali Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
As prepared I giving this 4 stars. Hubby and I both thought it needed more flavor. For ease of preparation, I'd give it 5+. Next time I make this, I'm adding more chili powder and will also add cumin and roasted jalapenos. Definitely a great based recipe. Thanks
