True Cheeseburger Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
Like most other reviewers, I used homemade pizza crust (cooked at the right temp for the recipe I used) but otherwise followed the recipe as written. The ketchup/mustard sauce was not sufficient when mixed with the ground beef, resulting in a kind of dry pizza. The concept is good, especially for those feeding kids. But for our tastes, the ketchup/mustard sauce was way too sweet. I would make again when the nephews come over but otherwise, will keep looking for different cheeseburger pizza recipe.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
This was a super tasty soup and paired well with Italian Bread from Allrecipes. I had to make a couple of substitutions (red onions instead of leeks, skim milk instead of cream and light butter) based on what I had on hand. We like soup with more broth so I added a cup more of chicken stock. We will have this earthy soup again.

Bill's Seasoned Ketchup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
We'd give this 4.5 stars if we could. I scaled this down to make 1 cup and it has very good flavor. I will keep playing with the spices. This time I added more tabasco sauce (1/4 teaspoon) and decreased the cayenne pepper by 1/4 teaspoon since I wanted more tabasco taste to serve with homemade fish and chips. Would be great on Mexican or tex-mex burgers, especially if you used a Mexican hot sauce.

Healthier Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
I added about 1/4 cup of panko crumbs (to give it a little crunch) to the top before baking and right before removing it from the oven, I added about 1/4 cup of shredded Mexican cheese blend. The jalapeno popper lovers in the family loved this, the rest of us not so much. Very easy to throw together and easy to control the heat level with the type of peppers used.

Simple Sassy Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
Like other reviewers, I left out both the butter and the oil as well as cutting the garlic down to 1 teaspoon. I had two slightly larger pieces of salmon, so used the full amounts of honey mustard (made with honey and regular mustard), Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. I marinated for about 2.5 hours and wish I had gone for at least twice as long before baking at 375 for about 15 minutes. We will have again.

Greek-Style Baked Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2014
This recipe is worth the effort and definitely one I would serve to company. Use fresh topping ingredients, especially basil and ripe tomatoes because all of the flavor comes from the topping. We will definitely have again.

Low-Carb Mashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2014
Interesting recipe. I did not have whipped cream cheese, so I subbed 4 light laughing cow garlic and herb wedges. I slightly undercooked the cauliflower and the mashed blend was a bit grainy which is easily corrected by cooking slightly longer. It paired well with a baked tilapia loin (seasoned with a hint of grated parm. cheese and some of the Lawry's seasoning salt) and a hodgepodge blend of frozen vegetables from Trader Joes. We will have again when we're in the mood for something different.

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
The keys to this recipe are using a good feta cheese and making sure your spinach is as dry as possible (just like when making spinach dip). We used a garlic and herb feta and did not put any minced garlic into the meat mixture. I also used egg beaters instead of eggs and let the patties firm up in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before cooking. We will definitely have again and change the flavors of the feta cheese as mood strikes. Would also make a great meatball for in a spicy tomato sauce.

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This was OK. It was very bland even with the addition of salt, pepper and marinating in lemon juice. If we have again, I will add shallots and garlic o the lemon juice and evoo before baking. Then add both to the mushroom gravy which was very bland.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
I scaled this back for 2 servings but ended up needing to add more panko bread crumbs seasoned with Italian seasonings. Definitely it could do with less butter. Next time I will either mist with EVOO or butter spray. Very tasty with the butter, but no real need for the extra calories/fat. Highly recommend broiling the last minute to crisp up the top. Fast enough for a weeknight but fancy enough for company. Nice change of pace from the normal Asian themed salmon recipes.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
I made half a recipe and it came together very easy and would be great for first time bakers. I followed exactly and unlike some of the reviewers, I did not find the salt to be too heavy. Make sure to mix the flour, salt and baking powder before adding to the wet ingredients. In my oven these took about 11 minutes. The mix of red and green sugar was our favorite. Will definitely go on the cookie trays this year.

Mushroom Cheeseburger Calzones

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
If you like store bought pizza dough, you'd rate this a 10 because it tastes exactly like a cheeseburger. Next time we have this, I'll use homemade wheat pizza dough (we like the wheat rolls on burgers, too). Don't skimp on the pickles, they really make this recipe. We are split on pickles on cheeseburgers, so I made half with and half without. Hands down, the favorite was the one with pickles.

Potato Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2013
If you love sage, this is the recipe for you. This is a very filling recipe and easy to modify for your family's taste if you're not huge sage fans.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
These are very tasty! I only used 1 cup of nuts and thought that was too much. Next time I'll decrease the nuts a bit more and add about a 1/4 cup more cranberries. With these changes, this is definitely a 5 star recipe. Make sure to use the damp hands to shape the loaf and cover with a towel after removing from the oven the first time. I had no trouble with the cookies cracking or breaking.

White Nacho Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
The key to this recipe is using a full flavored cheese you love. The proportions are spot on and even lend themselves to lightening if desired. I used skim milk and light butter (what I had) and the base thickened nicely. Just make sure you cook the butter/flour mixture a bit but don't let it brown (like if you were making gumbo). Make sure to add the cheese slowly and whisk thoroughly before the next addition. I added a fresh minced jalapeño pepper with the cheese and it did add additional flavor. Next time I'll add a bit of the pickled juice from the jalapeno jar for added kick. Would be the perfect base for mac and cheese or cheesy potatoes - just change the cheese.

Spicy Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I changed this up like most reviewers, using hamburger instead of roast and a variety of fresh vegetables instead of frozen, and used a combo of orzo pasta and 1 can of white beans in place of the other pasta. The broth though, I followed the recipe to a T and is why we gave it 5 stars. The combo of the garlic and herbs really is spot on and the resulting broth is out of this world. If you're looking for spicy, this isn't for you but if you like a tasty blend of spices, this one is for you. We will definitely have again throughout the fall/winter.

Pumpkin Spice Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2013
We had this cake tonight and loved it. I always use egg beaters in place of eggs and cut the oil in half, replacing it with unsweetened applesauce. I did not add the nuts and instead replaced them with raisins. I used a bunt pan and baked at 350 for 52 minutes. Very dense and super moist; we will have this again at the holidays.

Quick Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
Great change up on normal drop biscuits. I did add a decent amount of fresh chives (had to use them up) to the mixture before baking. Use a shredded cheddar cheese blend you really like as it is a dominant flavor in the biscuit. Next time I plan on spicing these up with spicy pepper jack cheese and serving with chili. This is a great basic recipe that is super easy to modify to your family's taste.

Basil, Roasted Peppers and Monterey Jack Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
I too used 2 boxes of Jiffy mix and then followed the recipe. The basil really didn't fit in with the pepper jack cheese and corn. They did make a very pretty muffin, though. Thanks for an easy to assemble recipe, though.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2013
We had this last night and we didn't care for it at all. We like meatloaf and this was very tasteless. There is no real seasoning in this recipe and that should have been the clue. However I wanted to try it as is to be fair. We will go back to our old recipe or try something else.
