Cod Fish Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
Since we like a lot of flavor, I used this as a base recipe and doctored it up a bit. Also, I like to use up what's on hand. Here's what I did and they were delicious! Thanks for the idea. Used red potatoes, added minced red bell pepper, green onion (instead of the minced onion), chopped baby spinach, and of course salt and pepper. I coated the cakes in a mixture on panko and parm cheese and let them sit in the fridge to set up for about 30 minutes. I then sautéed them in about 2 tbsp evoo in a cast iron skillet on the grill. WAY healthier than the amount of oil called for and they were quite crunchy. For a dipping sauce, I whisked sour cream, horseradish, Dijon mustard, and capers. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did..

Bellepepper's Orzo and Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Very interesting salad. We loved The blend if flavors and textures. However, it was much too sweet for our tastes. I'll definitely make again, but halve the sugar. I brought it to a party and got many compliments though. I just thought the sweet dressing along with the dried cranberries (couldn't find currants) was a little much. If you like your dressing on the sweet side, it may be a 5 star for you!

BUSH'S® Black Bean and Mango Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I made a couple minor changes and it was delicious! I added a can of corn, left out the olive oi (NO need), and substituted 1/3 diced red onion for the green onion (thanks to previous reviewers' suggestions). Be sure to make it at least a few hours in advance so the flavors can meld and a little juice can form. I served it as a slasa with chips, and then as a salad or condiment for shrimp fajitas. It was perfect both ways!!!

Honeyed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
If I could give it 3 and a half stars, I would. It was good. but not great. I should have listened to the previous reviewers and doubled the honey; I coudn't taste it. I used 1/2 and onion and that was all I tasted. I also added a minced clove of garlic. They weren't very tender- they weren't tough, but a little chewy. Maybe I'm a little picky because I'm pregnant.... but they could have been better.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Yummy! No salt needed AT ALL! I did not have a gravy packet, so I adjusted the spices accordingly. Cooked for about 1.5 hours. At the end, I mixed Wondra flour with cold water (thoroughly) and whisked in and let simmer until thick and bubbly to thicken the gravy. It was easy and delicious over whole wheat egg noodles served with baby peas.

Philly Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
With a couple changes, these were great. Since it waso n sale, I bought eye of round steak. Very tender. I tool another reviewer's suggestion to rub the steaks with spices, then add a little olive oil and let sit for a hour. I think it deepened the flavor. I spread garlic spread on the split rolls and broiled, the used sharp provolone, which is a personal preference.

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I had to modify it because I did not have mayo. I used ranch dressing instead and added garlic salt and black pepper. I steamed it for only 10 minutes based on prior suggestions. Very, very good! Perfect consistency and I think the ranch substitution added some flavor.

Football Party Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
A great dip for a party! I served it with Fritos Scoops, which worked well because they're so sturdy. I think tortilla chips would fall apart in this thick dip. The changes I made were omitting the celery (sounded weird to me) and the only bbq sauce I had at home was honey flavored. I don't recommend that... it was a little sweet for my taste. Next time the only thing Ill change is using the bbq sauce called for. But there will definately be a next time!

Pleasant Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
I substituted some chicken broth with white wine and added a squeeze of dijon mustard. I cooked the onion & garlic with the chops. The flavor was very tasty but the meat was TOUGH. I should have followed a previous reviewer's advice and checked them sooner. Maybe the sirloin chops I bought were too lean. Either way, they were quite dry.

Oven Baked Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
Very nice flavor, although we like things a little spicier (not HOT, but spicy) so I'll add more next time. I even used spicy andouille sauage too. My main complaint is that the rice became very mushy. This was my first jamablaya attempt, so maybe it's supposed to be like that. Next time, maybe I'll cook the rice separately. Oh- also, I put in ham, but I never actually tasted or noticed it. The chicken & shrimp way overpower it. My finacee said he loved the flavor, but not the texture.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
Very, very tasty and rich. We've made it twice already. Both times, I used canned diced tomatoes,and half hot, half sweet sausage. Once, I used dried basil instead of fresh. Came out delicious both ways. My only complaint is that upon reheating, the tortellini became mushy.

Spicy Chicken-n-Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
An interesting concept- mostly like a biscuit flavored with chicken. I added a little salt, subbed sharp cheddar cheese, and had to add a little milk to prevent crumbling while shaping the balls. Maybe that's because I used reduced fat baking mix. Will certainly make again...maybe add some chopped up bacon green onion.

Baked Brie with Pesto and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2002
I went to 2 stores and could not find the McCormick seasoning. I used a pesto sauce and eliminated the olive oil since it was already in the sauce. Next time I will use more pesto for flavoring but overall it was really goo & really easy!

Totally Groovy Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2002
Served this at a couples' bridal shower and it went over great! It was delicious!! We used Kahlua instead of cheery brandy. I gave it a low easiness rating because it had to be watered down (with Kahlua and more cream) at intervals throughout the party. It also burns easily if the flame is not regularly attended to- although I am willing to blame that on my fondue pot.. Overall- it was fantastic.

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms III

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2002
Not a big fan of this recipie. Soaking them in water and lemon made them extremely watery. They were bursing with water when we ate them. Also, the uncooked onion and celery made for an unpleasant crunchy texture. They were also bland.

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2002
Loved them! Made them for a shower after a trial one with another recipie from this site. THis one won hands down. I added about a third cup of the chopped stems. I also used a parmesean/romano blend. THey were perfectly spiced. To solve the waterety problem, I put the mushrooms on paper towels before putting them on a serving platter. Overall- delicious!
