My Best Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2015
This is an excellent recipe. Close to one I use but mine didn't call for bell pepper. I found the bell pepper really added to the taste. Too, I use a can of diced tomato/chile pepper (Rotel) rather than tomato sauce. Next time I make this I'll go back to that simply because I like the heat. This is a very adaptable recipe where one can add or reduce the ingredient portions depending on their taste. If you don't have a go to salsa recipe this is a very good place to start. Many thanks for a fine recipe, Big Nanc.

Ham Salad with a Schmear

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2015
I'm a big fan of ham salad and had bought a package of diced ham to make some. With the exception of the cream cheese this is the recipe I use to make ham salad. I had a package of cream cheese so I thought "Why not?" (BTW don't forget to soften the cream cheese.) I made this per the recipe with the exception of the relish. When it was processed I split it in half and added sweet relish to one half, dill relish to the other. As I suspected I liked the dill better, but that's merely a matter of taste. Both were delicious. I haven't tried adding any other cheeses. I'm happy with what I have, so I'll leave that to a more adventurous member. Many thanks, badbabybeth, for a new twist (at least for me) on an old standby.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
Nevertheless New England Clam Chowder has always been one of my favorite dishes. Love at first bite. This recipe yielded the best NECC I have ever eaten. And thanks to PIONEERGIRL, I made it myself! (Big grin.) I made it by the recipe with the exception, like others, I cooked bacon to use as a topping and cooked the onions in the bacon grease. Everything else by the recipe. And I do want to echo: The vinegar makes this chowder. Who woudda thunk it? Many, many thanks PIONEERGIRL.

Tender Flank Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
This is a very simple marinade. It's tasty nonetheless. At this time there are only two other reviews. One cited too much soy sauce while the other cited too much Worcestershire sauce. It's simple enough to test. Just mix equal parts of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce, say 1Tsp each and a dash of garlic powder (not garlic salt). That's the flavor it will impart to the meat. But this marinade is for taste only. It will not tenderize as there is no real acidity in it. To tenderize you need to add wine, vinegar or both, or maybe citric acid such as lime or lemon. True it will change the taste a bit, but more complexity just might benefit this recipe. Thanks, Renee Manz.

Easy Chicken and Dumplings with Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
My wife still works the weekends as a baker and cake decorator. So Mondays I cook to give her a rest day. Needless to say, put "easy" in a recipe name and you'll get my attention every time. This recipe is very easy and delicious. I made it exactly by the recipe except we had a bag of frozen dumplings so I used them. (Remember the part about "easy"? :) It rated a compliment from the Boss (read "wife"). And I don't get compliments on my cooking. So it's gotta be 5 stars. Many thanks, LUCYBARRON.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
Made as directed EXCEPT I used low sodium soy sauce and low sodium Worcestershire and cut the recipe in half as it is only "The Boss" (read wife) and I. Outstanding. We're just emerging from a viscous winter and this was the perfect way to kick off the grilling season. You owe it to yourself to try this. Many thanks, JILLYPOOH.

Eggplant Parmesan With Easy Homemade Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Delicious. Thank you, Brenda. Brenda writes: ""The few ingredients in the sauce is far tastier than canned sauce and makes the dish." Truer words were never written. The sauce is incredibly easy and incredibly delicious. Even if you don't like eggplant, make the sauce for anything requiring a tomato based sauce. You will not regret it.

Heather's Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
I love fish, particularly salmon. I cannot count the salmon recipes I have tried. Just when I thought there was nothing new... this. And it is tops. Even my wife who is not big fish fan and certainly not a sweet food fan loved it. I'll be cooking this on the stove this winter, but on the grill.... heaven on earth. Do yourself a favor and try this. And thank you HWaldron.

Uncle Wynn's Bread Machine Rye

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
I know my bread maker, so I followed the recipe except I used a full Tsp of yeast. What a beautiful loaf! What a great taste! TY Uncle Wynn for an outstanding recipe.

Country Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
Yes, kjr, it is a dry mix. It can usually be found in an area with other dry gravy mixes, dry sauce mixes, dry marinade mixes etc. Usually all you need is water. My personal favorite is Pioneer brand. You can use it on most anything: biscuits, chicken, potatoes. I did try this. It was excellent... but the calories... wow! And the cholesterol... This is a lumberjack's breakfast. But he'd leave the table with a smile on his face. Thank you, Kristin Trostle.

The Best Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Oh wow! I would call this perfection, but why under- rate it? Simply put I love salsa, and this is the best I've ever eaten. I made it with fresh tomatoes, and peppers from our garden. Store bought onions. I made a big batch this morning. It's a little after 3PM and it's all gone. As soon as I finish this I'm going to make some more. Thank you, Cheryl Dressler, for providing such a marvelous recipe, and also for solving the puzzle of what to do with our excess tomatoes. I know where everyone of them are going. Many, many thanks.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I never liked sweet potatoes as a child...my mother always smothered them with marshmallows. This, recipe is fan-tabulous. After trying it the first time, as written, I added cinnamon to taste... for me, perfection. And what's more important, the boss (wife) approved. Many thanks to you SDELATORE for a real keeper.

Squash Casserole II

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Judging by the ratings, this seems to be a hit or miss recipe. Obviously it was a miss with me and the wife, and we both like squash. The squash was fresh from our backyard garden so that wasn't the problem. What put me off was the sour cream. And that's odd because I like sour cream. But it didn't suit me in this recipe. I did like the herbed bread stuffing. I may try this again minus the sour cream (we have three very healthy squash plants that seem determined to take over the planet so I have to do something.) My thanks and appreciation to Ladysmom for the effort.

Poached Fish with Cucumbers

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
I tried this just as written the first time. WOW! No question this is a five star recipe. The only problem I've had with it is getting the texture of the cucum- bers right. That's a matter of practice. But the taste is wonderful and the preparation is simple. I would advise using a dry white wine as a sweet white cooks down and can make the fish too sweet (IMHO). I've tried this as written and tried it adding dill and garlic (per Bethy). I liked it both ways. Either way, I like it better with dill tartar sauce rather than tartar sauce made with sweet relish. Thanks to Bethy for the suggestions and many ,many thanks to Dickie for the recipe. Fantastic.

Jim's Perfect Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
I tried this and liked it very much. I let the steaks marinate almost 24 hrs. Great flavor. BUT NOTE : This recipe makes 34 servings, 4 1/4 cups. That's a lotta marinade. I cut the recipe in half and still had more than enough. Also, next time I'm going to add some liquid smoke. Fine recipe, JimChicago52, many thanks.

Cindy's Jambalaya

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Whoa! This is bang up good! Forget the first two ingredients, (oil and sausage) and the last (shrimp) and you've got the basis for jambalaya. Cindy, her- self said "add anything you like...". But you can use chicken, alone. Or just shrimp. Or crawfish. And here's the killer, it's a heck of a vegetarian dish. The secret to the recipe is (to my way of thinking) is the cajun seasoning. You cannot do better than this recipe for seasoning from this site, Cajun-Spice-Mix-2. Many thanks, Cindy.

Summer Corn Dip

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
I made this according to the recipe, in spite of the facts that I'm not a mint fan and the "Boss" (read "wife") is not a big fan of lime juice. But we both liked this. We're what I call "heater eaters" so I was more than liberal with the peppers. A big THANK YOU, moosie, for a solid repeater recipe.

Meatiest Vegetarian Chili From Your Slow Cooker

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Fab, Simone. My wife is (perpetually) dieting (hope I spelled that correctly, I can 't remember ever using the word before). we both like chili, so I have made this a few times. I make this with a mix of black and pinto beans. And the wife and I being heater eaters, I skip the hot sauce and use serrano peppers. Purr-fection. I also leave out the tofu and don't miss it at all. And I always want a can of mushrooms in it. WOW!! Many thanks, Simone.
