Classic Baked Mostaccioli

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
Really good, especially after fiddling. Stay with me here!: instead of ground beef, I used pork sausage and added an egg, italian-style seasoning and bread crumbs. Make Tbsp-size meatballs and brown in a large pan with some diced onion. When brown, drain the fat, add the sauce ** and a can of diced tomatoes with the juice ** then ignore it for awhile to let it simmer together, then continue with the recipe as above. Sounds like a lot more work, but it's really not - you can even prepare the meatballs in the morning and put them on a plate in the fridge or freezer until you're ready to start dinner (put a long piece of plastic wrap sprayed with Pam on the plate first, then fold it over the meatballs to cover). Besides, you feel so Martha!! Really good with a giant caesar salad and a big hunk of crusty bread.

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
Wow, pretty darn good! Actually, even though I made them with dinner, they remind me of the hearty breakfast potatoes my dad would cook when we went camping when I was little. Easy to prepare ahead of time, then toss on the grill for awhile before starting the meat.

Barbequed Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
Well, I'm not sure what happened, but this wasn't great. It smelled really terrific as it was marinating, but it tasted off - almost like wild game! Very odd. Probably won't try again.

B.L.T. Salad with Basil Mayo Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2002
Very yummy! I did use a full pound of extra thick bacon, and added a tablespoon or so of milk to the very thick dressing (light mayo worked great). One note about the croutons - the amounts listed for salt and pepper were very heavy even though I doubled the bread - start at about 1/3 of the amount listed and go from there. FYI, these are 4 VERY LARGE servings!! For typical side salad servings, it would be closer to 8-10. Such a great salad & it does taste just like a BLT. It even kept well in the fridge overnight, to my delight!

Roast Chicken with Thyme and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2002
This tasted really great and the family liked it, but I had the same problem I always have with roasting chicken - the clean-up in the oven!!! No amount of foil tenting, various roasting pans or any other contraption I come up with makes much difference. Tastes great, but I probably won't make again for that reason.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2002
So good! I use Pace Thick & Chunky - it works perfectly because it has some body to it and it's already kind of "cooked", so putting it in the oven doesn't drastically alter it. Really great with Mexican style corn and spanish rice as another person noted. Easy and good dinner!!

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2002
These are really good, but you have to be very careful not to get too peppery. Also, the first time I cooked these, they took FOREVER! The second time, I cooked them at a little higher temperature, and uncovered them for part of the cooking time; they were faster, but not as tender. Oh well, they taste good enough that I'll try to find the perfect combo of temp and time! Overall very good.

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 22, 2002
I must say I was a little skeptical, as I've married into a family of Texans and have heard stories of all the steps a proper rib cookout should entail - well, these were really great! I actually just used an inexpensive, store-bought (gasp!) BBQ sauce, but next time I'll plan ahead and make some of Bubba's Best BBQ Sauce (here on allrecipes.com) and really knock 'em dead. Great ribs!

Grandma's Sweet Slaw

Reviewed: May 22, 2002
This recipe makes a LOT of slaw! I thought we could enjoy it over the next few days, but it got very watery and limp after just a few hours in the fridge. Okay recipe, but I guess we're just not huge fans at my house.

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: May 22, 2002
Yum! I followed another reviewer's advice and drizzled a tiny amount of butter over the chicken to help brown the crumbs, and then gave it a quick zap under the broiler. Everyone loved this one, including my two-year-old and my meat-and-potatoes husband. I served it with couscous with a little tomato and cucumber, cilantro, lemon juice and some of the leftover feta. It's a hit at my house!

Lemon Pudding Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2002
YUM! My plate hasn't even cooled off yet & I've already e-mailed this recipe to three people!! This is so good, I don't even know how to describe it - it's like the very lightest angel food cake ever, drenched in lemony sauce. My kids LOVED it (12 yrs and 2 yrs), and even the picky husband said it was good! Just be aware that it gets fairly brown - mine was quite dark on top after 38 minutes, but wasn't actually burnt. Trust it! **added later** If you don't have a microplane zester (well, first - get one! Cheap & awesome! 'til then...): before juicing the lemons, use a vegetable peeler to take strips of JUST THE YELLOW part of the peel (no white if you can help it) and whirl those with the sugar in a food processor until they're all blended in. Add that during the sugar step, not the zest step. Works like magic!

Apricot Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2002
Pretty good! This recipe tastes surprisingly homey - I think I expected a very exotic flavor. The effect is somewhere between a very subtle barbeque sauce and a fruity teriyaki or sweet & sour. This went together in a minute, and came out perfect in an hour. My family says they could go for this every couple of weeks or so - I'm going to try on boneless skinless chicken thighs, too. ** I used a light catalina dressing, and it didn't lose any flavor.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2002
I made these cookies based on all the great reviews, and I must agree!! They were very easy and fast to mix. As great as they were, I love really vibrant flavors, so I will probably take the time to find UNsweetened dried cranberries next time, and will probably add a lot more than the recipe calls for. I'm just waiting for an excuse to give this mix to someone in a jar, as intended!

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2002
This is a great recipe for a chilly evening - very comforting & hearty. We ate it over mashed potatoes, and it was gone in a flash. Smells great while it's cooking, too!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2002
This tastes really good, but I found that because I floured and browned the meat (which naturally thickens the sauce) and added fresh mushrooms (which absorb a LOT of moisture), I increased the water to a full cup and still would have been happy with a thinner sauce. I liked the flavor enough to give this another try - this time no mushrooms and with a full soup can of water. I also think I'll use traditional sour cream instead - the cream cheese tasted very good, but I think the texture of the sour cream will suit my tastes better. That's the beauty of this recipe - it's a great place to take off & tinker to your preferences!

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2002
This is very tasty - I would never have thought to put asparagus on a grill. My husband had mesquite chips in the smoker box the day I tried this, and it added a new dimension to the flavor. I am the only person who really likes asparagus in my family, and while this didn't change anyone's mind, I enjoyed it very much!

Lemon-Lime Cream Tart

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2002
This was okay, but not great. The color and flavor were both a little off - slightly grey and quite astringent. Not up to the usual standards of Cooking Light. In all, it seemed like a lot of hassle for a not-so-great result.

Bubba's Best BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2001
OH MY GOSH!! Bubba, you rocked my world. This is sooo yummy, and very easy. Remember to cook slowly, and be patient - it will get thick. I took it to a family BBQ (of native Texans, no less) and everyone raved. Can't wait to cook ribs with it. This is my new favorite sauce!!

Cooking Light magazine's Mexican Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2001
Yummy! My 12-year old and almost-2 year old both really liked it (the adults did too!). I used green enchilada sauce, and it was a better fit for both visual and taste purposes. Will definitely make again.

Roasted Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2001
Who knew this was so easy?? I used my roasted garlic in the "Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe" instead of raw garlic - to die for!! You could definitely get away with alot less oil! Really terrific to know how to do this!
