Slow Cooker Barbecue Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
Only a couple small changes....1TB of salt as listed is too much sodium/used 1 tsp and as other posters noted it needs brown sugar and added 1/3 of a cup. 5 stars with less salt/add brown sugar.

Grilled Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I marinated overnight/enough flavor was not an issue but I also found the marinade to be watery and the chicken was dry when grilled.

Spicy Flat Iron Steak Rub

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I liked it a lot but gave it 4 as I did change it a little. 1 TB of chili I used as directed but adding another 1 to 1 1/2 tsp each of ancho and chipolte peppers sounded like it was going to be a bit TOO spicy for my "moderately spicy" taste. I used what I had on hand (red pepper flakes and cayenne as "other peppers") and only used a 1/4 tsp...this was plenty spicy for me. I also added 1/4 tsp of cumin....it just seemed a natural pair with chili poweder and isn't too much on the "heat" like the hot peppers. This is probably one you won't make everyone happy as different folks have different likes on how hot they like things.

Flat Iron Steak with Three Pepper Rub

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
Second review added because I did something else with the leftovers.....which was even better I liked it/didn't LOVE it as a hot dish. We had leftover meat so a couple days later I sliced it very thin and served it over greens as a cold salad. The spices were a little potent for me as a hot dish but shaved and served over salad the kick was diffused a bit and it was awesome!!!

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
I made a couple changes based on what I had around the house...still came out great/my husband said I have to make a big batch for when we have our 4th of July party next weekend. I left out the triple sec (did not have nay on hand/had plenty of booze without it/never noticed it was missing) and we had powdered lemonade mix around for the kids but not lemonade concentrate...so I subsituted the powdered lemonade mix. For the soda I used Sprite.Big hit!!

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
4 stars as is...to make it 5 I made basically the same minor changes as many of the previous posters: 1) You DO want to brown/carmelize the onions for better flavor. (I used the onions I had on hand: Vidalias) 2) since I was using bullion broth I omitted the salt....bullion is salty enough on it's own and I hate overly salted onion soup. I only use Knorr brand bullion.....using the best broth/bullion is really important. For the pepper "to taste" I used 1/4 tsp. 3) I doubled the Sherry...I DO like to taste the wine in the soup for added body/flavor. As one poster noted....some folks have changed it so much it is no longer close to the same recipe!!!

Summerly Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
My hubby that is not all that fond of summer squash found it to be a keeper. He likes his food a tad blander than I do....he likes it as is. I would like it better (and I am doing the rating!) a bit more with a bit of garlic an parm cheese as another poster suggested.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
This was excellent. The only thing I changed was adding one clove of garlic...it was a just a tad bland as written and the garlic made it "five stars". I only give 5 stars if the changes are small otherwise you don't have the original recipe anymore. Both hubby (does not like most Chinese food) and daughter (the Lo Mein snob) gave it a thumbs up.....we will be seeing this one again soon........ Added note: I only use GOOD soy sauce for things like this. Cheapo grocery store soy sauce (kikkoman etc) does not cut it. I use Shoyu sauce or top shelf soy from gourmet shops. I often take shortcuts but that is not one of them/soy is the basis of the flavor. Bad soy sauce will make a bad dish!

Nettles Dried Beef Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
As other posters noted, this is a tad bland for my tastes so added 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce for a bit more robust flavor.

Basic Mexican Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
Excellent.....not mostly sour cream like many guac recipies are. I tossed in extra lime (squeezed half a lime into it which is probably closer to a TB of lime juice) and onion (more like 2TB) for my tastes.

Perfect Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Very good. The only thing I changed was I used 2 tsp and not 1/4c of dry mustard powder as I only had 2 tsp left in the bottle on hand. But, even if I had more....I would be afraid to use 1/4 of mustard powder in a small batch of marinade. It sounds like an awful lot...

Turkey Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This is a good "start" but needs more spices to suit me. Overall....too bland and boring for us. I added for spices: 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper and 1 tsp poulty seasoning.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Like the poster below...I lost my aunts zucchini bread recipe and was looking for something close....all I did to make it like my "old" one was add 8 oz of pineapple.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
I made them pretty much as listed. Since a number of posters commented they were a tad lacking in flavor I just added 1/4 tsp each of fresh ginger and cinnamon. Hubbby (who is not a sweet potato fan) and daughter (who likes her gnocci the "normal and plain" way) were not at all sure about this.....but both ended up liking it/would ask that I make it again. Gnocci is tricky...the important thing is consistency. I used the 2c of flour as mentioned which was just right. I was careful to add slowly/stir it in evenly and even went to the extra effort of using a flour sifter on the flour to avoid making it lumpy at all costs. I hand rolled them....no need for them to be sooo sticky you need to squirt them out of a bag like frosting.......but you do stop adding flour just at the point the dough is rollable and it will not be a "dry dough" or they will turn out tough. Gnocci is kinda like bread...you have to do it a few times to get the "feel" of what is just the right amount of flour for the right texure. Good gnocci is wonderful/bad gnocci is tough and hideous. Most restauraurant gnocci is sadly the latter.

Poor Man's Beer Batter Fish

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
I used tilapia as I am not a trout fan/it was a hit at home. My version was a 5 for us....I gave the version "as is" a 4 because it is a bit bland and I did make some minor changes. I added 1 tsp of baking powder and 1 TB of lemon juice....I do the same thing to the pancake batter at home for pancakes because it makes it lighter/fluffier...just a personal preferance.....so since I make my pancakes that way I did the same with a pancake based recipe. The thing that was more of an issue is this batter is a great base but totally lacks seasoning. I added 1/4 tsp each of salt, pepper, paprika, garlic and Cajun seasoning. To the person that it came out oily: sounds like your oil was not hot enough.

Noodles Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
there are all kinds of alfredo sauces here on allrecipes...with all kinds of fancy stuff added....but sometimes (as in this case) "less is more" or "simpler is better". Loved it. Flavor wise the only change was to add a pinch of garlic...but even without it tasted great since I DO spring for high quality parm cheese. The only other thing I changed in the name of *trying* to make alfredo saucue a tad less unhealthy was to use 1c of half and half in place of the heavy cream and butter. It came out just fine.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
simple stuff is somtimes best!! My daughter prefers "pink" applesauce (with berries added) and I could not find a pink applesauce recipe here so I just modified this one: I subsituted 1/4c of strawberry jam for the 1/4 c of sugar and it was a big hit. (I also cut the cinnamon back to 1/4 tsp with the berries in it).

Parmesan Artichoke Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
The flavor was great though the previous reviewers are correct that the consistency is more like a dip. For more of a side dish texture I would add more veggies. For a great artichoke dip just make it as it and mash is up a little!

Sweet Baby Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
Great flavor. As some other posters noted, this does make a lot of sauce for the amount of carrots. Next time I will halve the amount of sauce so less butter is wasted in the bottom of the pot at the end.
