Beefy Potato Volcano

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Really tasty and fun! I put a little bit of olive oil on the potato skins before putting them in the oven and they came out nice and crispy. I also used fresh baby carrots and broccoli instead of canned vegetables and shredded cheddar cheese over the top. If you do this with kids (or kids-at-heart like my husband) you can pretend the broccoli are trees!

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I used flake-style crab-flavored fish product (not canned), and added an extra egg. I think Panko is key, they were very crispy and delicious! I wasn't expecting much from my faux-crab, but this recipe made it quite tasty! I will definitely be making this again, because it was a hit with my picky husband.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I can't believe I just made bread! I, too, cut the sugar in half and it tastes great!

Poached Orange Pears

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
Delicious and extremely sweet! I used maraschino cherries as a garnish instead of raspberries, but I bet the tartness of fresh raspberries would set off the sweetness even better.

Pork Chops with Pears

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
Absolutely delicious. I used boneless chops, diced fresh (though extremely ripe) pears, and sweet plum wine instead of the pear juice, and it was amazing!

Pork Chops With Black Cherry Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
These were amazing! Only change I made was to bake them about 5 minutes less because I was using thinly cut pork chops (about 6 oz each instead of 8 oz) and used plum wine instead of red because that's all I had. I served it with roasted brussel sprouts and baked beans, and it was one of the best dinners I've had in awhile!

Cucumbers And Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
To thicken it up, remove the yolks from the eggs before chopping them, and mix the yolk with the mayonnaise. Be sure to remove the seeded part from the cucumbers if using seeded cucumbers and use fewer pickles, or thick chunky pickle relish. I also added some green onions and dill weed for a little extra zip.

Simple Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
Perfect! I turned them over after 10 minutes to soak up more of the liquid, which I also halved like many other reviewers. I also happened to use "Simply Apple" apple juice instead of orange juice, because that's what I had on hand, and I think that made it that much more delicious. (Simply Apple is almost cider, but not quite).

Easy Italian Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Really good! I left out the salt and added honey after reading through other reviews. It had a very nice, strong aroma but a subtle, juicy taste.

Smoky Bacon Wraps

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
My sister makes something like this for the holidays. I never realized her recipe could be so simple because everybody agrees they are amazingly delicious! I tried it tonight using a full-sized sausage cut up into pieces, but you can't beat the pleasant bite-size if the mini sausages. Definitely a treat.

Baked French Fries II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
Delicious! I used olive oil instead of cooking spray and sea salt instead of regular salt. The timing and oven temp on the recipe is perfect.

Garlic Aioli

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I used 1 1/2 TBSP lime juice instead of lemon, and reduced the amount of garlic because my garlic was very strong-smelling. I used it as a dip for crab cakes and fresh vegetables. I think the lime was a very good move... and this was surprisingly delicious, which I didn't expect from a mayonnaise-based sauce!

Little Meat Loaves

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
Tasty little things... followed to the letter except for halving the recipe and making smaller portions (45 minutes was perfect for cooking 1/4 lb loaves) and adding in some Mexican 3-cheese blend instead of all the parmesan. Also tried the suggestion of putting them on a wire rack in a baking pan... no grease! Served with broccoli and biscuits. They were a hit with my hard-to-cook-for husband. We're looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow, even!

Zippy Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Delicious! I'd say this rivals the shepherd's pies I've had in Irish restaurants, and the flavors from the curry reminded me of moussaka that I've had at Greek restaurants. I made my curry powder from scratch, with almost every spice you can find in "curry powder ingredients" if you google it... heavy with turmeric, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, garlic and cumin. Not "spicy" but oh so flavorful.

Beer Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I used milk chocolate, regular milk, and black cherries, and omitted the walnuts (Because that's what I had on hand). I also made them into cupcakes. The tops were a little over-done even at 45 minutes, so I would suggest checking them at 30-40 minutes. The flavors of the beer and cherry juice mixed very well, and the rest of the cake was moist and delicious!

Tater Crisp Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Excellent with Idahoan flavored mashed potatoes. They are less flakey, more powdery, so they give a nice texture. I used loaded baked potato flavor.

Mexicali Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Very tasty! I used fresh tomatoes but added some chili powder and garlic powder... next time I will add some cumin for a great Mexican flavor.

Piadina Romagnola (Italian Flat Bread)

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
To me, it came out a little too salty, and mine were very flat and a little crisp, not quite like a pita as other reviewers have said, but still very good for spreading with cheese. The lack of fluffiness may be because I substituted butter, kefir, and heavy cream for the milk, margarine and greek yogurt. I imagine sticking closer to the listed ingredients and removing some salt would improve it for me next time!

Mansaka

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
The flavors were outstanding, and I replaced canned mushroom with fresh, omitted the tomato sauce and added a layer of fresh spinach and green onions, and topped that with cream of mushroom soup. Added some cheddar in with the swiss cheese, and sprinkled the top with fresh chives when there were about ten minutes left on the clock. Only downside was that about half the potates were still undercooked after over 35 minutes in the oven.

Sushi-Inspired Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Great idea! All I had on hand was wheat bread, and it tasted fine to me. Also I used wasabi paste and pickled ginger paste in tubes I had picked up at an international grocer. The green onion adds a nice crispness... better than tuna salads with celery, in my opinion.
