How to Make Homemade Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
Absolutely delicious! Well balanced. I made exactly as written with the TINY exception of using anchovy paste in a tube. I got lucky and found 2 cans of San Marzano (Cento) tomatoes in the dent bin last week and they were half off. Perfect way to use them!!

Navy Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Simple and very good. I made a half recipe. Added a russet potato cubed (in lieu of instant potatoes) and about 1 cup of frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, green beans, corn) at the last 30 minutes or so. Just some stuff I needed to use.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
Really good and different from my standard tuna salad recipe. To cut back on sodium, I used a can of really low sodium white tuna. I didn't miss that salt one bit with all the other seasonings. If you don't have sweet pickle relish, like me, try subbing sweet picked peppers, chopped fine. They work and the colors actually look very pretty. I served on fresh sourdough with romaine lettuce. Oh, and mix all ingredients except tuna, then lightly flake/stir tuna into the mix. I overblended my first batch and thought it was just too spreadlike (I don't know how else to write that). Enjoyed this on road trip up to Denali Park Reserve, Sept 2010.

Southern Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Excellent! Made this to take on camping trip to Denali Nat'l Park and so glad I did! There was so much sightseeing going on, who wanted to stop and fix and bunch of food...not me! This spread was awesome and super easy to travel with. The jalapeno gave it just enough oomph, but not overwhelming whatsoever. It makes for a yummy sandwich too. Made mine following ingredients exactly; finely shredded cheese with a kitchenaid fine grater, added all the stuff to the bowl, and then beat everything together on high with a handheld mixer. Perfect.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Real nice recipe! I used Muir Glen fire roast whole tomatoes, removing the stem thingee then crushing them with my hand before adding to the pot. Also used Muir Glen tomato paste. For the meatballs, I did use 3/4 pound fresh ground chuck and 1/4 pound fresh ground pork tenderloin... mixed the cubed meat with the other ingredients and then fed it through the grinder. They were perfectly seasoned and super tender. Served with garlic bread and casesar salad. Yum.

Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Recipes like this shouldn't be allowed on the site. Its sinfully too easy and too delicious. Why on earth would someone buy brand name syrup at the grocery store ($$$) when they can make this for much less, and it taste so much better!! I made this with the unsweeted cocoa (Hershey's), white sugar, a quality vanilla extract, and skim milk. I put a dash of salt in there. Slowly brought to a low boil, waited one minutes, and then let it cool. It did form a skin, but I poured it through a fine strainer and now its perfect. I wonder how long it will last in the fridge? Hmmmm

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
My first time making enchiladas so I followed the recipe exactly (except using 8 smaller tortillas rather than the 5 12-inch tortillas). I loved 'em!! Served with Mexican Rice II, and No Fry Refried Beans (both of this site). A nice way of celebrating Cinco de Mayo! :)

The Best Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
This was my first time making Enchilada Sauce; I had a can in the pantry just in case this didn't work out. Um, I had to resort to the can. I'm going to try to make one more time, with fresh ancho chiles when we get some...will update review.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
Following the recipe exactly will give you a wonderful pot of beans! I will reduce the amount of salt, however, next time I make them. Five teaspoons was just too much for me; I'll start with two teaspoons next batch. UPDATE: That was yesterday. I pitched that batch and made another with 2 tsp kosher salt, and think they came out perfect. Used about 3-1/2 cups beans the 2nd batch (end of the bag).

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
I loved every bite! Used a 1 pound eggplant, sliced 1/4 inch thick with a mandolin (forgot to peel them, but glad I didn't). Placed on cooling rack, sprinkled with sea salt, waited 30 minutes, rinsed and dried them between two clean towels, pressing gently. I put my bread crumbs in a small 1-cup dish to help minimize wasting any crumbs. After egg wash and dip, I placed them on a cooling rack/cookie sheet to bake...450F oven and 7 minutes each side. PERFECT! Placed in layers with sauce and cheese as recipe instructed; after first layer, I sprinkled with the basil and just a pinch of cayenne pepper, and then baked until just beginning to bubble and cheese ever so slightly brown. Just fabulous. I'll be making this one again!! Served with cucumber/sour cream dressing, this site... nice dinner. :)

Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
Simple and tasty! I sliced one very large english cucumber using the crinkle slicer on the mandolin, placed the slices in a single layer on a clean towel, sprinkled very lightly with table salt. While they were 'drying' I assembled the other ingredients. Used paper towel and patted the slices before adding them to the bowel (with everything already mixed and well blended), then lightly tossed the slices. The crinkles help hold that dressing SO nicely!! Very good eats, for sure. Also, I just happened to have made bacon bits, and had been nibbling on them as they were draining...then had a nibble of the cucumber salad. That combo was rather tasty...

Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
Absolutely delicious with the fresh wild caught (Alaska) shrimp I just got today. I made only a single serving and added a generous pinch of red pepper flakes to the garlic and shrimp as they were sauteeing. Just...lovely. The calories are awful though!! And still, I enjoyed every bite of pure decadence.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Followed the recipe using medium grain rice that I had cooked in the rice cooker; then added the liquids to the rice cooked and finished making it there... At one point it bubbled over. Will make again but will pay closer attention. Creaminess achieved! (The arb. rice in canister with twist on lid was horribly expensive, then I saw a bag of 'cheap' medium grain rice for 1/4th the cost...worked great!)

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Delicious indeed!!! Followed the recipe using skim milk (works great). Sauteed onion and celery in 1 Tblsp of the 5 Tblsps butter. Still added the 5 Tblsp of flour into the remaining 4 Tblsps butter, and then the milk. Tossed in a half cup frozen peas at the very end for color... (NO salt added, the ham and chicken base was plenty for my taste). Perfect with a tossed green salad.
