Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
Let's see...school cancellations and dangerous roads due to a snow storm...what to do, what to do? Make this soup, of course! The whole family is chowing down as I type. My only change was adding some frozen corn. Thick and hardy, just the way we like it, and no floury taste as one reviewer commented. Simple and DELICIOUS! Now I have to make another batch (better make it a double or triple!)to share with my coworkers tomorrow...that is, if we have school!

Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Just made this tonight. Absolutely divine! Cut wine in half, left out chicken stock, and used only beef stock. Didn't have tomatoes but used 3/4 can of tomato paste. I did strain a lot of fat out of the gravy before serving, and added a bit of cornstarch/water mixture to thicken for mashed potatoes. It was rich, delicious, and restaurant quality!

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
I've loved this sandwich since childhood! The only difference is that I add a touch of garlic salt and pepper. Yum! Yum! My garden cucumbers are now ready! When I'm on the go, I buy the Veggie Sandwich at Jimmy John's. Hold the mayo and provolone if you like and add vinegar & oil and hot peppers. Similar!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
This was very good and easy! I did not need to use the oil to brown the meat, which I browned very lightly. This dish was actually ready in 4 hours on the slow setting. I mixed the meat with lots of fresh garlic and some kosher salt before browning. I used a variety of peppers, including some hot banana peppers, added them later, and actually just kept them on top of the meat until right before serving. I also used Italian stewed tomatoes and served over egg noodles. Great flavor. My family says it's a keeper; success!

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I also make it with broccoli slaw. I'm out to the store for more ingredients right now! Oh...I toast my ramen, too. YUM!

Crab-Stuffed Filet Mignon with Whiskey Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I thought this was very good, but my husband who loves surf 'n' turf said he did not care for the two to be wed, if you know what I mean!

Broccoli Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
5 stars for simplicity, but I needed to zip it up a bit. First, I cook the chicken in olive oil rather than butter and add fresh garlic, pepper, and a touch of salt. I double the recipe and now use 1 can of Cream of Broccoli Soup and 1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup. I mix them with the milk and fresh Parmesan before adding to the pasta. I steam broccoli and cauliflower to crisp tender rather than adding to the pasta water (personal preference). I also add some sliced red pepper for color. My kids love it, and that's what matters to me! Thanks!

Mom's Sushi Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Perfect! Thanks (Mom!)! There's no need to go anywhere else for a sushi rice recipe. Easy and works great for my sushi and maki rolls.

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
My daughter and I just made these cookies and are having a hard time leaving them alone! Totally delicious! Since we didn't have any whole flour on hand, we just used all-purpose flour. Still turned out awesome. Will try with the WW flour next time!! :)

Chicken Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
Yum! I had to pull myself away from tasting the marinade in order to get the chicken into it! Doubled up on all spices and added freshly grated pepper. I couldn't help poking a fork gently throughout each chicken breast. I wanted to MAKE SURE this marinade got soaked up! I also used the marinade while grilling the chicken. Thanks!

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was so delicious! I left out the dill and used two egg whites rather than a whole egg. I have enough left over to have another one for lunch tomorrow! I can't wait! Great recipe!

Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Great idea, but it just didn't work for me or my husband! Way too salty even though I cut down on the prosciutto and added the cream cheese. Maybe my prosciutto is to blame (?). I'm not picky; I love the idea, and I'm not done with this concept yet!

Rabbit Stew with Coconut Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
I love rabbit more than chicken, so I was excited to find a new and different recipe. My husband is a traditional rabbit cooker (you know, hunter style or cream style), which is fine, but I was ready to get out of the box. My kids and I loved this recipe! I did tone down the sweetness by correcting it with more chicken stock and boiling it back down (for my husband). I also cooked everything in a big dutch oven and just pulled out the rabbit to saute the veggies and drain the oil. I did remove the bones from the rabbit while the veggies cooked; that allowed me to eat my dinner rather than cut up my children's! AND no child felt badly about cutting up Bugs Bunny :). I think it helped! 5 stars from me and the kids and 4 from the traditional American hunter (whatever! I'll be making this again!) YUM! Oh...I couldn't help but add a touch of saffron. Just couldn't help myself! It was beautiful and delicious! I would have taken a picture, but I was too excited to eat! Even the next day, I had to say to a friend who was over, "Here, you have to try this!!" I know I'm blabbing, but it really rocked!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Easy enough, although I did add some fresh thyme and garlic to the sauce. I found it a little bland, but ya' know what? No one complained and the husband was happy :). 3 stars for me, but a peaceful dinner without complaints from the picky kids gives it a 4. So in my book, success! 45 minutes total for chops and sauce was all it took for a juicy meal.

Traditional Osso Buco

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I followed Coverdale's advice about browning in pancetta and was very happy with that. No veal shanks at the market, so I had to use chops. We loved the recipe and will use again! YUM!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
We love Sloppy Joes, but this recipe just didn't work for my family. I followed the recipe exactly to be fair. Maybe it's all the ketchup and powdered spices. We found it blah. Sorry :(.

Tanning Bed Drink

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I forgot how much I love these! Even my husband has been asking for this tooty-fruity drink. I must admit, however, that I add more rum than pineapple juice and a splash of Collins Cherry Cocktail Syrup! Thanks for the reminder!

Flank Steak with Garlic Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
My family loves flank steak. I slather on crushed garlic, fresh pepper, and some kosher salt then grill or broil until barely medium rare. A reviewer mentioned that it is hard to keep the meat warm. I have found that if I put it on the lowest rack of my oven, have broil on low, and keep the door slightly ajar, the meat rests wonderfully and still stays warm (since I cook it slightly less than medium rare) while I complete any finishing touches to the meal. I slice it at the last minute before serving. Really, I was going for something a little different by adding this sauce recipe, so I can't rate the steak portion of the recipe. My whole family loved the sauce! Thanks!

Matthew's Bearnaise Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
The easiest Bearnaise Sauce yet! For my family's taste, I did add a little fresh lemon juice, a touch more tarragon and salt, and a good dash of cayenne pepper. I poured the sauce over grilled beef filet mignon which was topped with an artichoke heart. I loved the ease of this recipe; super creamy too! This will replace the recipe that I grew up with and use with beef fondue. Thanks!
