Easy Portuguese Kale Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
Giving this 5 stars with my additions. I used "Better than Bouillon" with water instead of chicken broth. I love this product. I used 1-2 cups more water than the recipe called for. At the very end, I added a can of cream of chicken soup to give it some creaminess. I loved it and so did my family.

Pad Se Eew

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Yum! I doubled the sauce and since we didn't have frozen broccoli, I added some fresh veggies we had on hand. I also added 2 eggs & double the garlic. I didn't use all of the rice noodles, as they would have completely overwhelmed the dish. Added about 2/3 of them instead. We loved it the way I prepared it!

Doreen's Ham Slices on the Grill

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
Yummy! I used this marinade and baked the ham while it was sitting in the juice/sauce. I didn't have enough lemon, so I added some orange juice. Very good!

Gooey Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
Yummy! I just made these with a couple of additions & changes and they are delicious! I used some lemon extract instead of vanilla. I added dried cranberries and white chocolate chips and didn't bother chilling or rolling in powdered sugar. I just scooped them onto the baking tray and about a minute before they were done, I opened the oven and flattened a bit with a fork. We loved these & will make again. I think next time I will make the same way, but maybe also add some chopped nuts and roll them in shredded coconut.

Greg's Southern Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
We loved these! The only change I made was to use butter-flavored shortening in place of lard since that's what I had on hand. Everything else I followed exactly as written. Excellent recipe! The first time I've made buttermilk biscuits from scratch and this recipe is wonderful. I am sure they are even better using lard! Thanks, I will make these again.

Squash Stuff

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
After reading all of the reviews, I decided to give this recipe a try and take the reviewers' suggestions of adding some seasoning. I added a medium onion, some garlic and some Italian seasonings. My family enjoyed this recipe. We had some nice crusty bread with it and served it in bowls. It was good, but not our favorite. Nice for a cold evening. Easy clean up since it was all made in one large pot on the stove. Our family of 6 enjoyed it with some left for tomorrow's lunch.

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
I am so disappointed. I followed this recipe exactly and was very excited about it after reading the reviews. My piece of corned beef was 2.79 lbs. I started cooking with plenty of time, even though I figured it wouldn't take the 4 hours recommended for the 5+ lb. piece the recipe calls for. I checked after 2 hours and it was not nearly done, cooked it an hour longer and checked again. After cooking for almost 4 hours, I took it out, sure that it must be done and tender. Everything else was ready, but the meat was tough. I ended up having to put it in my pressure cooker and cook it for more than 30 minutes longer before it was tender. The flavor was good. I liked the subtle hint of orange. I won't use this recipe again though... back to boiling my corned beef.

Pasta With Tuna Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I'm giving this recipe 4 stars, although I didn't really make the exact recipe. I had to use what was on hand tonight. I didn't have any capers and was all out of lemon juice. I started with the garlic (3 cloves crushed) & onion (1 medium sliced.) Simmered them in olive oil, then added some seasonings. I added some Mrs. Dash, some black pepper and some Italian salad dressing. Next I added the can of diced tomatoes (in sauce) and let simmer. I added 1-12 oz can of tuna & continued to simmer. Finally I added some jarred pasta sauce since I only had a small can of tomatoes. I finished with some chopped parsley. Served over bowtie pasta and sprinkled with mozz & parmesan cheese. It was a huge hit with my family & soooo easy! Loved it!

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
Yummy! I used premade meatballs from Ikea. Blended together sauce ingredients into a large pot over med. heat. I didn't have enough brown sugar, so added some white. I added about 2 more Tbsp. of soy sauce and left out the green peppers. I also used crushed pineapple which was very good! Everyone loved it!

Apricot Nectar Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I made this as one of our desserts this Christmas. It's a great non-dairy recipe!It came out so incredibly moist & delicious! Next time I will make the glaze with more of the apricot nectar instead of the lemon juice. I loved the apricot flavor! Keeper!

Green Bean Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
I used this recipe as a springboard and am rating it 5 stars using my changes: doubled the gr. beans, add 1/2 C mushrooms sauteed with onion. I didn't dice the onion, left it in strips and sauteed til transparent. Was out of worcestershire, so I added a little more soy (didn't miss it.) Skipped the salt since soy sauce is salty. Used Wisconsin extra sharp white cheddar. LOVED it!

Spam Musubi

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Pretty good! My husband is from Hawaii and so my family loves spam musubi. I am a haoli, so I had to learn how to make it. :-) This one was pretty good. I was all out of oyster sauce, so I used shoyu & sugar, but I am sure the oyster sauce would have added some great flavor. We didn't like the amount of rice vinegar... I'll have to play with that one. All in all, it was good & we enjoyed it! Thanks!

Greek Souzoukaklia

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Very good! Just a few minor changes. I used dried cranberries instead of raisins b/c I had them on hand. Love them! I shaped these into meatballs & cooked them in a frying pan instead of the grill. Then, I let them sit in a low heat oven for about 30 minutes while I got the rest of the food ready. This allowed for more of the fat to drain out, while the meatballs still remained moist & delicious. I will make these again. Thanks!

Zippy Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
This was good! I didn't have the creole seasoning, but used everything else. It was really good, but nothing I would serve to guests or take to a potluck - thus only 3 stars. I will probably make something like this again for my family as I am trying to eat more fish. Thanks!

Fiesta Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
I made this recipe with a few changes. Didn't have any green chilies, so I sauteed some onion & garlic instead. LOVED this change! I also cut back on the mayo and sour cream a bit. It came out really great. I think it would be good with bacon bits. Everyone in my family enjoyed it!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
YUM! I'd give this 4 1/2 if I could. It was good served in a sandwich with lettuce and very good served as a tuna melt on one slice of bread with a slice of mozzarella cheese melted on top. Delish!

Creamy Pork with Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
I give this recipe 5 stars with my changes. Most importantly, I wait to add the gravy (sour cream sauce) until serving. I served the gravy in a gravy boat and let everyone add their own. This way the pork steaks are not swimming in the gravy. I changed the gravy a bit by using 2 cans of soup - 1 cream of mushroom and 1 cream of chicken. I added extra mushrooms and a small chopped onion to the sauce. I chopped some of the mushrooms fine and left the rest bigger because I like the big chunks. I would also suggest crisping up the pork steaks in the broiler for a couple of minutes after baking and BEFORE adding any sauce. Yum, yum! Serve with mashed potatoes topped with the same gravy. (I added a picture!)

Bowties and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I made a version of this recipe (did not do any measuring) and added some sliced shallots and shredded mozzarella cheese. I also added salt & pepper. Yum!

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
This is a great recipe, but needs a little work. As many others said, the sauce didn't thicken. I think it needs some corn starch (which I didn't have.)I loved the flavors though! I will make this again.

Pork Roast with Thyme

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Just as many reviewers wrote, this was delicious! I added some rosemary & sage, and used a much smaller roast. Even with the smaller roast, I increased the amount of seasonings, as we enjoy lots of flavor. Used garlic powder instead of fresh and it was great! Since I only had about 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar left, I also used a small amount of balsamic. The flavor was so good and the roast, taken out when the internal thermometer read 170 degrees, was moist and juicy!
