Whimpies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
Slightly different change from your standard sloppy joe. We enjoyed as a chance of pace. I used apple cider vinegar.

Crispy Mashed Potato Pancake

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
Good use of leftover mashed potatoes. I fried mine in bacon fat in a cast iron skillet. Also I rolled them into balls then dipped in bisquick before putting them into the pan and flattening them. Cooking them on medium high for 7 minutes burnt them on my electric stove though. Medium heat worked for me. I think I like potato pancakes with shredded potatoes more, but it's nice to have a use for leftovers!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
followed recipe exactly, was very moist with nice crumb but next time I would add a full cup of cocoa powder and also swap some coffee for the boiling water. But I will be making it again!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I don't measure anything for sloppy joes but these are the ingredients I use, plus a splash of worcestershire and a squit of bbq sauce. I typically don't simmer for a full half hour, just until the liquids have reduced. Easy peasy weeknight meal and good way to use up hamburger buns.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
These were good but they still taste like brussels sprouts. They taste like any roasted veggie, a little charred, which I like as a change from steamed or sauteed.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I modified based on the most popular reviews. Made it in the crockpot, before leaving for work I put 4 split chicken breasts in along with the spices, a 32 oz container of chicken broth, a jar of salsa, a can of rotel, and a can of tomato soup. When I got home I shredded the chicken and added some sauteed some onion and bell peppers, then frozen corn and a can of black beans and pinto beans. This makes a lot, have lots in the freezer, but it's tasty and seems healthy, until you top with cheese, fritos and sour cream that is!

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
This is always a favorite, but 1 tsp of dill is overkill. I don't use radishes, but whatever I have on hand in terms of veggies-definitely carrots, broccoli, green onions, and a pepper of some kind though. I also like to do 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 mayo.

Steakhouse Wheat Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Good, I don't have a bread machine so I made by hand but it turned out well. I doubled the brown sugar but still felt the molasses taste came through a lot. Didn't notice the coffee flavor but it was pretty weak. Baked on a pizza stone and it makes a very big loaf! I don't know that I'll go through the 5 lb bag of rye flour I bought though! Hopefully it freezes well...

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I cut up a fryer chicken and used that. It wasn't bad but the soy sauce was overpowering. The sauce does get nice and thick but the flavor is a little off.

Butterfinger Chunkies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
I just use one whole egg and also opt for smooth pb. They are crispy and chewy at the same time and don't flatten too much. Sometimes I use about 2 packages of the 10 packs of the snack size candy bars. A keeper for sure!

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
Not that flavorful but crispy, tender and juicy. My boyfriend said he really like the coating and I did too once dipped in ketchup! I dredged in seasoned flour, then egg and coarsely crumbled ritz with Lawry's seasoned salt. I dotted with softened butter (probably only used a tablespoon or two for two chops) Put on Silipat and baked at 400 for ten minutes, flipped, dabbed with more butter on underside and baked 10 minutes more. Broiled each side a couple of minutes to crisp up. Total oven time was 25 minutes. Served with seasoned oven roasted potatoes and asparagus. Also I like to use thin, boneless center cut chops, they turn out tender if you don't overcook the pork. I'll use this method again, I'll just make sure to doctor the breading up a little bit more.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
Very good, simple to prepare and comes together quickly. I always marinate the chickent overnight. For the sauce, I saute a little chopped onion, garlic, and jalapeno along with some grated fresh ginger. I use two cans of tomato sauce (we like lots of sauce to go along with naan). Homemade naan is the best but Trader Joe's makes a decent one that's great for weeknight meals. Sometimes I add a little corriander powder to the sauce as well.

Honey Mustard Chicken with Pretzel Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
I basically just used the concept of this recipe. To save time I coated the chicken in bottled honey mustard mixed with a little mayo. Then I rolled in a mixture of ritz crackers, french's french fried onions, and mini pretzels seasoned with garlic powder, lawry's seasoned salt and pepper (pulsed in a food processor until fairly fine). I pounded the chicken thin and baked on a cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet lined with foil. Baked at 375 for about 1/2 hour. Chicken was moist, the breading was crunchy and flavorful and very addictive when dipped in ketchup. I know I really modified the recipe here but it was such a good and quick weeknight dinner I had to rate it.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
This is a great standard chili recipe that can be adapted based on what you have on hand/need to use up/etc.. I used a can of chili beans and a can of pinto beans, also used all ground beef. I halved the recipe and used beef broth instead of bullion and used a decent amount because I wanted a slightly soupy/less thick chili. I also didn't add the beer (didn't want to waste one for only a 1/4 cup). I ran out to run some errands and just put the pot of chili (in a dutch oven pot) into the oven at 350 for 2 hours. Easy as can be!

Left Bank Apple Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I diced the apples and replaced the walnuts with a fresh peach (skin on). I served this with dinner but I had the leftovers with my breakfast and it was a great way to start the day!

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I wanted to pack my boyfriend something different than his usual lunch sandwiches and this was just the ticket because I had apples and grapes that needed to be used up. Ommitted the walnuts and curry powder. Served with colby-jack cheese lettuce, tomoato and red onion on a bagel (just because that's what what I had on hand) and he really liked it.

Classic American-Style Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I don't eat potato or macaroni salad but this got polished off quickly. I think I used more mayo and celery but kept everything else the same.

Chicken Scarpariello

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I used chicken stock instead of bullion and had to add lots of extra seasoning (including more garlic) after tasting because it seemed a little bland. After adjusting the seasoning I still wasn't thrilled with it. I ended up serving it the next day (slowly reheating while covered on the stove) and it was flavorful and tender.

Jimmy Dean Sausage Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
Update: I made these again, but this time formed them into patties for breakfast sandwiches with eggs on bagels. They turned out well. I halved the recipe and served as part of a huge breakfast, they were the first thing gone! They needed longer than 20 minutes for me. Good use of bisquick. Wonderful dipped in ketchup.

Beef Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I did equal parts oil, lime juice and tequila. Also added a splash of soy sauce. Made for tender beef, the longer you can let it marinate the better.
