Grandma Elaine's Unstuffed Sweet and Sour Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
I thought my grandma's secret recipe was gone for good, but I swear this is it. Absolutely delicious, and well worth the cooking time. The only changes I made were using regular raisins instead of golden ones, and using white sugar and molasses because I was out of brown sugar.

Hot and Sour Chinese Eggplant

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Yummy, though like other users I added some chopped onion and doubled the sauce. I don't think there would have been enough sauce if I'd stuck with the recipe. And I used a squirt of sriracha instead of the chile pepper.

Jambalaya

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Wonderful. I used kielbasa as the only meat, since it was all I had, but otherwise followed the recipe. I normally end up adding a little extra spice to recipes from this site, but the amounts given here were perfect for me. If you're unsure, probably best start with less red pepper and add more to taste.

Pasta de Sardine

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
I like this meal, even though I don't love it and wouldn't serve it to company. But it's darn tasty for something that cooks up in 20 minutes from inexpensive pantry staples, and it's a good base for whatever leftovers you want to use up. Seriously- almost anything you can imagine eating with pasta works well here. Bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, sausage, it all works.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
I loved the use of curry powder, but 6 tablespoons of mayonnaise was way too much for me- I like to be able to taste the tuna in a tuna salad, and this one was drowning in the mayo. But it was great after I added an extra can of tuna- the other seasonings were yummy and seemed well-balanced, but I'll cut the mayonnaise at least in half next time.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
I would not make this recipe again. I following the instructions except for reducing the oil and adding some frozen peas, and I found it really, really bland. I actually went over the recipe twice because I was convinced I'd forgotten an ingredient, but I hadn't- the recipe is just blah. It doesn't taste like much of anything- it's vaguely sweet and vaguely salty, not actually off-putting but not at all appealing. I love sesame noodles and was hoping for a way to get that taste at home, but this is not it.

Tasty Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
This is an easy, yummy, budget-friendly dish, but I'd suggest one or two little changes. I didn't have MSG, or want to use it, so I added one of the ramen flavor packets to the dressing instead. Also, don't waste your money on bagged coleslaw mix- one small cabbage is about the same as two 16 oz bags of mix, and it only takes a few minutes to chop up.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
It's still cooking, but I stole a taste when I shredded the chicken and it's AMAZING. I don't know if I can wait another 2 hours...

Company Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Like others, I used onion and garlic to make this a little less bland. Salt and pepper are also important- I didn't add any before I baked it, but it needs it. Overall quite tasty, I will definitely make it again with a few modifications.

Apple Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
This is a good recipe for what it is- light, fluffy, and very, very Starbucks. I usually like classic scones, very dense and craggy with a bit of buttermilk tang. This is more like cake than bread- not really what I want in a scone. If that's what you're looking for this is a good recipe. Not very strong apple taste- maybe add a splash of cider?

Coffee Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
I'm quite disappointed by this recipe. They taste decent, but they spread out a lot during baking. The amounts seem to be off too- no way does this recipe make thirty cookies. I wound up with 14. It's a promising start- with more flour and maybe a dash of cinnamon these would be a lot better.

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
This was really good and easy to do- I made a few changes, I used some chopped up turkey kielbasa instead of bacon, and used broccoli and garlic as well as the onions. I've never had a hot potato salad before, but I like it.
