Venison Bacon Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
This was my first time ever cooking any kind of Venison. After reading the reviews I thought I would give this recipe a try. I was so impressed with the taste, flavor, ingredience used, texture, etc. This is a winner and I will prepare this over and over again. I followed the recipe and didn't change anything.

Marinated Venison Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I followed the recipe ingredients but, marinated the steaks for almost 4 hrs. Even though the taste was wonderful, I think it would only enhance the flavor if I marinated the steak overnight. There will be a next time for this recipe. I did cut the recipe in half because I used one bone in steak and grilled it. The secret is not to overcook the meat.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
This recipe was a hit and I will make it again. Love garlic so, I added a few more cloves, used half & half (all I had) sauted mushrooms in butter, added these. I did thicken the sauce with corn starch but, after cooking awhile I don't think that was necessary. I doubled the recipe after reading reviews and if the portions are kept small there is enough sauce using the original recipe. Even though, this sauce has delicious flavor, and as good as some of my favotite Itilian restaurants I cooked two more chicken breasts as I had plenty of sauce left over(after doubling the recipe) and now have another meal for two. Can't wait to have left overs. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Love this dish. Great for company!

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
The filling has a wonderful taste. The only change I made was to add more turkey, corn, mushrooms, and omited one potatoe. If I had followed the recipe I might have had more sauce. The end results reminded me of a quiche but, still very tasty. I will try this recipe again, this time following the recipe without additions. I made my own crust therefore, spending more time then I wanted in the kitchen. This could be a good company dish. Thank you for the recipe and I will try it again and report my results.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I lived in San Diego for 17 yrs. and fish tacos were found everywhere. Living in Florida now and they arn't as popular here. Most of my family in Florida had never heard of fish tacos. I will have to say that this recipe is the best. The sauce is something to die for. I did cut back on the jalapeno and cayenne pepper (to my taste). I added salt & pepper to the flour before dusting the fish. I didn't change the fish batter at all. Loved it. I used flour tortillas and heated them in a salted hot skillet (no oil). I would put these up against any fish taco in San Diego as being one of the best recipes I have tried. Didn't use cod. I caught and cleaned the fish myself which made the recipe more special. Thank you for the recipe. It will be used often.

Shrimp Etouffee II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I was very excited to try this recipe since shrimp is one of my favorite foods. I didn't do much to change this recipe. The sauce was a bit too thick for me so I added chicken broth until I got the right consistency. I added a little more hot sauce & cayenne pepper to my taste. I cooked the sauce on the stove top instead of the microwave and sauteed the shrimp separate in a skillet then added to the sauce last minute so not to overcook the shrimp. I arranged the sauce on top of angel hair pasta. This would be a good company meal and I will fix it again. Thank you

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I will give this five stars. I followed the recipe and never changed a thing. What an amazing dish. I prepared this for the first time for my son and husband. They both loved it. Toasting the buttered roll is a great idea. I put this together the night before and took it out of the crock pot mid morning. It just fell apart. Thank you...this is a keeper. Can't wait to fix it again. So easy!

Heavenly Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I prepared the dish this morning, put it in the fridge, and heated it for dinner. I halfed the recipe, used a few less potatoes but, followed the recipe. I was amazed at how good it was. Guess what....three of us ate the entire dish. Of course we had seconds. My son recommended that I add Dijon mustard next time. Since I cut the recipe in half I will try 1 tablespoon to give it some jazz. Great dish for a potluck. A keeper.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
I will make this chili again but, change a few things. I added chicken cooking stock (I thought this recipe was too thick) This is the only change I made and after cooking the chili in the slow cooker realized that the longer it cooked the better it tasted. Next time I will not use two cans of tomato soup. Maybe one and then substitute the other with a can of chopped tomatos or tomato sauce. Maybe even omit the allspice. I will also use 1/2 tsp. of red pepper flakes to suit our taste. Other then that not a bad recipe. Thank you and I will try this again.

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This is sure to be a keeper. I didn't have Italian sausage but, did have a small amount of breakfast sausage (Jimmy Dean) and turkey kielbasa. In my pantry I had small egg noodles and substituted this for the potatoes. Other then this I followed the recipe and all I can say is m-m-m-m-m. I got rid of leftovers but, next time will use the spicy Italian sausage. Thank you for the recipe!

Coriander Tabbouleh Salad with Shrimp

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I could not wait to write a review for this tabbouleh salad. This is the first time I have even tried to make this salad. I followed the receipe only adding a little more lemon juice to my taste. Instead of shrimp I cooked salmon on the grill and layed it on top of the tabbouleh. Warm French bread and you have a fantastic meal. Wow! Sensational! The combination of flavors is outstanding. This is a keeper and I can't wait for my friends to try it. THANK YOU!!!

Garlic and Ranch Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
I often look for turkey burgers when eating out and have had my share...some good, some bad. Duffy's in Florida is good. Anyhow, this recipe is the best. When all the ingredients were added the texture was hard to form a burger so, I added Italian bread crumbs just so the burgers held together. Wonderful flavor. A great recipe for someone watching their calories. Next time I will use a bun and all the trimmings. Thank you for the recipe. This will go in my recipe box.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Followed the recipe and loved it. The chicken was tender and the flavor was great. I marinated it a little longer then 30 min. only because I got busy and forgot the time. Will prepare again. Easy! Thank You for the recipe.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
After preparing this dish you wouldn't even know that I used ground venison instead of ground beef. This recipe is outstanding and I will prepare this again. I halfed the recipe again to have more sauce and added worcestershire sauce and hot sauce to taste. WOW!! Can't wait to fix these sloppy joes again. Thank you Tamara for the recipe. I bet ground turkey would be good also.

Creamy Spinach Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
I had two servings, this recipe was so good!!! I usually don't prepare recipes that call for heavy cream but, I thought I would give this a try and the flavor was outstanding. If only I had some French bread to soak up the sauce. I added shrimp to this recipe which I sauteed earlier in a small amount of butter & olive oil and a dash of salt. This made it a complete meal. Next time I will try cooked chicken breast (prepared ahead of time) Cover it with some of the sauce and accompany the chicken with the rest of the sauce and tortellini. M-M-M-M

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I had all the ingredients on hand except the tenderloin, which made this recipe easy and inexpensive. Next time I will put slits in the meat and stuff with garlic cloves. Maybe add some more hot sauce. I cooked the tenderloin two hrs. longer which made the meat soooo tender. I transformed this dish into pulled pork by shredding it and added barbeque sauce and had yummy pork on rolls. Thank you for the recipe.

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I cut this recipe in half and only made a few changes. I used butter instead of margarine, orzo instead of rice, and turkey instead of chicken. May not be necessary but, I sauted the onion and celery to get rid of the crunch before adding to the soup base. Absolutely loved this recipe. The blending of flavors is perfect. This will be added to my recipe box as a favorite. Thank You!

I halfed this recipe. I used venison stew meat and added mushrooms and two garlic cloves minced. Had to add more liqued from another can of diced tomatoes. (next time I will try red wine)Other then that I followed the recipe. Cooked this in a crock pot as recommended and the meat was very tender and the house smelled soooo good while this cooked. Served over egg noodles.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I didn't change anything with these cake-like cookies. Next time I make them I will add chopped pecans to the batter and maybe add some flavoring to the iceing or try another iceing, as it was too sweet for my taste. The kitchen smelled delicious when the cookies were cooking. I'm freezing some so they don't get eaten up in one night. Hope they freeze well.

Venison Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
My family said this was the best pot roast they have ever eaten. I had a venison roast on hand and had all the ingredients in the pantry and refrigerator. I followed the recipe and cooked the roast a little longer before adding the vegetables which made it even more tender. Will make this again.
