Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I enjoyed this recipe and it was amazingly simple and quick to put together. I used bow tie pasta with red and yellow peppers, added some chicken strips, and used fat free sour cream. I took the advice of other members by waiting to add the sour cream and chicken broth at last minute. Sauce was flavorful and creamy. Thanks for the tip! I also did only use half the cayenne the recipe asked for and I found that plenty spicy for me. This re-heated great for lunches. Would make again.

Conh Chowdah (Corn Chowder)

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
This is an excellent starting point recipe. I did mostly substitute the heavy cream for 1 fat free half and half, 1 regular half/half and added only about 1/4 cup of the heavy cream just to thicken it a little bit and cut down some on the fat. I also added potatoes to it. Overall this is a great recipe. Everyone raved about it. It is rich and creamy even using mostly the half/half. Taste great after letting it sit over night. Definite keeper. I use all the time

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
These were good but nothing i would rave about. I read alot of complaints from other members that the soy adds a lot of salt..so i used 50% lower sodium soy sauce and found that the salt flavor was not overwhelming. I only used 3 small boneless porkchops and this recipes barely made enough sauce to cover those in the crockpot... so i added a little water. I browned the chops in olive oil before I cooked in crockpot on low for 3 hours. I found that they were not too dry but think they would have been if I cooked any longer. The sauce is very tasty and I actually enjoyed it more over jasmine rice than on the pork chops themselves. I would make the sauce again in the future but most likely will not use on pork chops again.

Crab Cakes with Red Pepper Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I am rating this on the red pepper sauce alone as I have another crab cake recipe I use. I followed the recipe exact for the sauce and it is the perfect compliment for crab cakes.

Cucumber Sandwiches II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I followed the recipe as written. People did like these, however, I find its one of those appetizers people would eat 1 and that's it. Not something you can really eat a lot of. I think the italian dressing called for was a little overpowering so I will cut down on that if i make them again.

G's Flank Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I followed this recipe exact with no changes and did not care for this much. The marinade itself does not taste bad and the meat was very tender but it completely covers up the taste of the steak. The soy sauce is too much. I don't really enjoy the asian taste when i eat steak. If you enjoy that type of flavor you will most likely enjoy this marinade. I may try this for an oriental steak stir fry but not on a real steak. Thanks for sharing though

Pasta with Peas and Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I made this exact the first time and thought it was just ok..a little bland but not horrible. I made again with some changes and found it had much better flavor. I minced 2-3 garlic cloves and some onions with hot sausage patties instead of sweet cut up. Instead of milk I used 1/2 and 1/2 added some fresh graded romano and parmesan cheese to the cream base (the fresh grated will melt into the cream sauce). I did thicken sauce right before taking it off the stove with cornstarch. I think this is a recipe you can easily change to suit your personal taste quite easily.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

I really enjoyed this. I made sauce exactly as written and was very good. Since then i have made several times to suit my taste. It is excellent if you add chicken strips, peas or asparagus and lots and lots of garlic! YUM

Roast Beef Tenderloin with Cranberry-Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
I made exactly as written....this was very good and very easy to make. I did not care for the sauce by itself but it does compliment the meat well. I used merlot and cranberry juice for the sauce so it has a strong craberry taste...if you do not care for that kind of flavor you may not like the sauce..I may also try a lighter red wine next time. Like others i ended up using a little cornstarch to thicken and it still came out good. Will make again

Bev's Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
This was ok for me. it had good orange flavor to it, but the onion soup mix was a little to much for me. This did not re-heat well either. This is one of the recipes that had ok flavor but i would work with a little if i made again.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
this is a good basic meatloaf recipe. I did the recipe as written BEFORE I TRIED THE SUGGESTIONS OF OTHER REVIEWERS..we all have different taste. I notice people try the suggestions of others before trying the recipe as written.This was not the best meatloaf i've ever had but it was really good for a quick, weekday meal. not everything has to be gourmet...sometimes i personally just want tasty and quick. This is exactly that.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
Ok, like all my other reviews i made this as written before i made any changes. I really enjoy cream with diced tomatoes. I made this with regular pasta, and heavy cream, which was great of course!! i then made it with whole grain pasta, 1/2 and 1/2, and just a little bit of sausage (i think the recipe calls for too much sausage). I still thought it was excellent. Of course it depends on your taste. I think it is a winner either as written or in the lower fat version.
