Tater Tot Casserole IV

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
This was really good! I followed others' advice and put in half the meat, and double the veggies. I also (sinfully) added some sour cream when I mixed in the soup, and topped the tots with shredded cheddar the last 5 minutes of baking. My 1 1/2 year old couldn't get enough of it!

Pizzelles III

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2004
These were really good! I haven't really had pizzelles before, but I was given a pizzelle iron recently so I thought I'd make some. We formed the cookies over an upside down bowl while they were really hot and then used them for ice cream bowls/cones. Everyone really liked them. I'm trying the chocolate version tonight.

Juicy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
If you want a fruit salad that tastes purely fresh and fruity, this is a good one. It's all about fruit, no fillers, no frills, just nice, juicy fruit.

Cedar Planked Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
This was some of the most delicious salmon we've ever eaten, and we've eaten our fair share of salmon! I prepared the recipe pretty much as written, except that for the green onion, I didn't chop it, I just took a few stalks, cut it into 4" lengths, bruised it with the back of my knife really well, and then tossed it in the marinade. I wanted the flavor, but I have boys that are picky about green stuff. :) I poured the marinade into a rimmed baking sheet, and then turned my salmon, skin still on, in the marinade a few times to coat, and then finally let it rest, skin side up in the marinade until we were ready to grill. It was only marinating for maybe 30 mins, but the salmon was SO tender and flavorful. This is our new favorite way to cook salmon, provided we have a couple of cedar planks!

Abstinence on the Beach

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
I really liked this mix, but I also really like grapefruit juice. My husband thinks this is a tad tart for him. I used ruby red grapefruit juice and a whole can of coconut milk. I also mixed this with raspberry flavored sparkling water for a yummy punch.

Amish Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2008
After reading a bunch of reviews, I noticed that there were some different measurements being thrown out for the cup equivalent of 18 Tbs. I looked it up, there are 4 Tbs. to a 1/4 cup, so 18 Tbs. = 1 cup + 2 Tbs.

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2001
I followed the advice of the other reviews and added an extra 1/2 c. flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 c. cocoa. For the middle, I tried rolos and also Hershey's chocolate creme filled caramel classics. They pretty much tasted the same to me and my husband, so I opted for the caramel classics, since they were cheaper :) I used an 18/10 gauge cookie dough scoop, which made a lot more than 48 cookies, and made assembly really easy too. If you make the cookies this way, don't refrigerate the dough since it gets too hard, but just take a scoop of dough, press the caramel into the center and seal it in. I didn't add any of the nuts into the dough, I only dipped the top and it seemed like there were plenty of nuts. I did have a bit of a problem with them falling off though, maybe I didn't press them into the top far enough. I also lined my sheets with parchment paper and baked for 10 minutes. Wow, great cookies though!

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
I haven't made this particular recipe yet, though it is very close to one given to me by a Filipino friend. After reading the reviews, I was confused by all the people adding sugar to this recipe. Adobo should have a pleasant salty/vinegary taste. The vinegar gets less intense as it simmers with the chicken. Adobo isn't supposed to have sugar! This isn't a recipe for teriyaki or sweet and sour. If that's the flavor you are after, you're better off trying a different recipe.

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
I did make a few changes, but this punch was great! I just used one can of frozen white grape concentrate and one can of frozen pineapple concentrate and mixed that with 4 liters of ginger ale and ice. Between only seven people, we drank the entire thing!

Chimichurri Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I can't get enough of this stuff. It's great on everything! I don't add as much cumin as it calls for - I like the fresh taste of all the parsley. I think I've been adding about half the amount of cumin, and it is still delicious and flavorful.

Boniet

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
This was awesome! I made it with white vinegar, but I think I might try balsamic next time. I'm not a huge fan of parsley, and I thought 2 bunches seemed like an awful lot, but I put it all in and was not disappointed! If you like dipping your bread in olive oil and vinegar, you will love this!

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I wouldn't change a thing! Everyone loved this satay - from my 18 month old, to my 6 year old who eats nothing, to my satay-snob husband who "only eats the good stuff". I worried that there wasn't enough marinade for my huge bowl of cubed chicken, and I worried that 15 minutes wouldn't be long enough for a good marinade, but I am happy to say my worries were unfounded! I ended up marinating for an hour, and that was more than plenty of time. The chicken was flavorful, tender and moist - even without the peanut sauce, which was awesome too. GREAT recipe, thanks Estherlita!

Slow Cooker Tipsy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2001
I love olives, so I loved this recipe, but my husband is not so big a fan. I only used about half of the olives called for, and the flavor still came through very strongly. Such an easy recipe though, and delicious served over white rice.

Chicken with Couscous

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2001
This recipe was so fast and easy to make. I added sliced green peppers with the zuchinni, and it tasted good. I've had better curry, but this recipe is fine if you are in a hurry.

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Great soup! I've never had bean and ham soup, but thought I'd try it instead of split pea. . . I made the recipe exactly as stated. It was delicious.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I'm not a sweets person, so I really enjoyed these muffins! They are dense and not-too-sweet, with a surprise in every bite. Will it be a carrot? A raisin? Some apple? A nut? What's not to love from a muffin with a little of everything?! It took me a little while to find the coconut, but I finally found the unsweetened kind in the health food/organic aisle.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
Wow, this chili was good! It had a mild, gentle heat, so the kids could eat it too. Like some other reviewers, I cooked my own bacon, and then sauteed the veggies in some of the drippings. I also cut up my own chuck roast instead of using ground, and browned that first too. I put everything in a crock pot (mine is 7 quarts, and it was FULL), and cooked on low for 8 hours. I used one can each of kidney, pinto, and black beans for the "chili beans", and one can of "ranch-style beans" for the beans with chili sauce. I also didn't know I was so low on cumin, so I didn't have very much in there, but with all the other flavors going on, I didn't miss it! I will definitely make this one again.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
This is my new cornbread recipe! It had a unique mixing method, but maybe that's what makes it so good. I doubled the recipe and made 24 good-size corn muffins. I think they only took about 15 minutes in my convection oven. If you're like me and don't have buttermilk on hand very often, you can add 1 Tbs. of white vinegar with enough milk to equal 1 cup. Let it sit for 5 minutes before using. Other than that substitution, I made these as directed, and they were tasty!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
I'd never had brocolli salad before, and I really enjoyed this recipe. I made it without the bacon, but I can imagine it would be that much better with it in. The dressing was a nice balance of sweet and sour.

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2004
I thought this salad was really good. The dressing was quite thick though. I know it's supposed to be low fat, but I ended up adding a little vegetable oil and water to try to thin it out a little. I had a hard time getting the dressing to coat the salad evenly when it was so thick. It tasted great though!
