Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
I've made this on a couple of occasions and I love it, especially when chilly fall days set in. I've made it as is with great results, I've doubled it with no issues and I've tweeked it to my particular tastes and each time it comes out great! In my most recent version, I changed up the spices a bit and included some smoked paprika and a teeny bit of chili powder and thyme. I also added about a tablespoon of my favorite hot sauce in with the eggs and beat them to mix it all together before adding it to the meat mixture. Rather than adding the onions with the meat to cook, I dice them and add them to the drippings with 8oz. of chopped mushrooms and 1-2 tablespoons of butter. Instead of sherry, I used Madiera wine. Increase the flour by 50% and after adding the broth and wine, I add 1/2-3/4 cups of milk. The little bit of extra richness is wonderful.

Slow Cooker Shredded Beef for Tacos and Burritos

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
I think it's a shame to make this using a taco seasoning mix (hence the 3 rating) and make my own blend of spices to add more than a salty flavor. Also, I shred the beef right in the crock pot, or even in a 9X13 pan, to make prep a lot less messy. You can't beat a crock pot dinner!

Turkey and Yam Spicy Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I really loved these tacos! I made a few modifications: I used a 1 lb. of ground turkey, increased the spices, used 3/4 cups of the salsa verde and served it on corn tortillas that I toasted over an open flame. YUM! I also did a version were I skipped the tortillas altogether and served this with regular salsa in addition to the tomatillo salsa over shredded lettuce as a taco salad. That was also excellent!

Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
I get raves every time I bring this to a function. It's super-easy to make and it is always a hit. I like to have a batch on hand for snacking on at home. This one will stay in my regular rotation!

Margie's Cuban Sofrito (Sauce)

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
Sorry, this NOT Sofrito. I don't know where this recipe came from, but it's missing Cilantro, Culantro and fresh tomato. Also, it has OIL? It's not supposed to be cooked. this make make some tasty type of sauce, but this is NOT Sofrito. Sofrito is a few basic, FRESH ingredients processed until smooth in a food processor. People, enjoy this as a sauce, but if you think this is authentic Sofrito, either Cuban OR Puerto Rican, you are mistaken.

Parmesan Broccoli Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This was my first time trying these, and I'll be making them again for sure, but I'm going to experiment a bit. This time out, I subbed the parmesan for sharp cheddar, which was yummy. My only concern is that they were to "egg-y" Next time, less egg adn butter. I'll also be sauteeing the onion and experimenting with adding various seasonings and possibly, sauteed mushroom. The flavor was OK, it just seemed to be missing something. I think these are a great nibbler, I just want to tweak them to be a bit more flavorful.

Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
Great crabcakes whether made with saltines or Ritz. I make them with a home-made remoulade sauce and they are OUTSTANDING. I'm not willing to try the sauce included with teh recipe, I can tell it has too much oil for my taste. With remoulade the crabcakes are awesome alone or over fettucini pasta. Enjoy!

Au Gratin Potatoes II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2002
I made this dish for my fiance and parents and they LOVED it, there were no leftovers! It's extremely easy to make, and tastes like you fussed. I used frozen, shredded hash brown potatoes instead of doing the shredding myself. I will be making this again soon. Just be sure you put it in a deep enough pan, so it doesn't bubble over. I learned that one the hard way!! :)

Blue Ribbon Overnight Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2002
I made these rolls last year for my first holiday with the future in-laws. They were a BIG success, not one left! Very easy to make, and delicious! I brushed mine with melted butter and a sprinkle of garlic powder on top while baking for a little extra flavor.
