Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
Quite good, but the meat was not as tender as it would have been had it marinated properly. I made it once and haven't made it since, so it didn't make much of in impression on me.

Bacon and Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
I made this salad as a main course for dinner with a few chicken strips served over lettuce. It was PERFECT. My family said it's the best pasta salad they've ever had, and it was easy to make to boot. Since it was my main course, I used big noodles (ziti) instead of the elbows. Also just a few changes due to personal preference: 86'd the olives and tomatoes, added one medium chopped onion. No sour cream, since I didn't have any in the house, so I used some extra mayo and some ranch to make up for it. Also added some dill, because I love dill. It makes a TON, but it's so good we will surely have it finished off by the end of the week!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Delicious! Easy to make, too. Took barely 30 minutes to do everything from mixing the batter to making the frosting to baking. The only change I did was adding less cherry juice to the frosting, after about two teaspoons the frosting seemed quite thin and I didn't want ti to run off the cookies. I also made my cookies a bit large, they ended up about 2" in diameter, because I wanted to bake them all at once and not have to do batches. Came out to 18 cookies total at the size I made them. I will definitely make these again, they were winners.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
This was pretty delicious for a quick and easy mid-week meal. I used much less parsley and paprika, as other reviewers suggested, and the flavors of the sauce came out perfect. My family tends to get bored with chicken very easily, but this meal was a hit. Will definitely make it again.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Very good and very easy! I added a can of hot ro-tel and left out the cilantro (my family doesn't like it much) and it was awesome and deliciously spicy. Perfect.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Found the recipe this morning and 30 minutes later my family was eating delicious hot pancakes. Only change I made was added about 1/4 c more flour because the batter seemed thin and added 1 tsp. vanilla extract. First time I've made pancakes without Bisquick and they tasted 100x better.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
As written, I give this four stars. Five with my changes: as other reviewers have stated, core and steam the whole head of cabbage. The sauce should be at least tripled, and I didn't add brown sugar (we don't really like sweet sauces). The biggest thing, though, is my Polish grandma's trick: once the rolls are in the pan, cover the whole thing with either the remainder of the steamed cabbage (chopped) or sauerkraut. This gives you that awesome cabbage-y juice that you can dump all over your mashed potatoes.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Absolutely the best baked ziti I have ever eaten. The sour cream and provolone add so much more flavor and moisture than the traditional ricotta. I used ground sausage instead of ground beef, and added in three cloves of minced garlic with the onion and meat. Also, after reading some other reviews, I mixed the sauce with the ziti for the bottom layer, then provolone, sour cream, sauce/ziti, and topped with mozzarella and parmesan. Wonderful.
