Meatloaf California

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
it was good but very spicy and the taste of all those dried herbs was overpowering. I won't make it again this way.

Potato Soup VII

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Delicious, but labor intensive so do yourself a favor and use bacon bits from a bag. The quantities might be a little off, because I halved everything and still had a LOT more than 4 servings. I don't think I'll make it again just because it takes too long, but the taste is perfect! Enjoy :)

Tropical Turkey Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Tastes ok and is definitely simple enough to make, but I am only giving it 4 stars because it's plain. Tastes the same as turkey loaf without the pineapple and all the other spices. The sauce is more like a relish and it doesn't complement the meatloaf very well.

Chicken Scampi

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I didn't make this with pasta, but a barley dish. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken and lime juice instead of lemon. It was very good and even the kids liked it. My trick is that I brown the garlic separately and only add it at the end, so it keeps its flavor.

Sweet 'n' Tangy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
I LOVE recipes with few ingredients such as this, preferably that do not need a ton of washing, peeling, chopping etc :) It was absolutely delicious, didn't change a thing but I did cook it for a lot longer in order to get the pork tender and easily cut with a fork. Then I mixed the rice in the sauce. Yummy!

Eggplant Omelet Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This was as good as it gets. The I used 2 eggs instead of 3 because that is all I had on hand, and the taste was not overpowering and it blended in well with the eggplant. The egg did not look like omelet and incorporated perfectly in the dip. The only thing I would add is more spices for an extra zing. Will make again and again!

Pot Roast Caribe

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This was very good, even though from the large number of ingredients that went in, only a few came through... but I am sure the flavor was a combination of them all. I tend to prefer easier slow cooker dishes where you don't have to use 2 separate pots on the stovetop and it can all be done in the crockpot, but other than that, this was great.

Barley Waldorf Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
This was yummy if the cream and mayo in your salad doesn't bother you. Kids were not crazy about it but we liked it.

Veggie Delight on Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Delicious as is. I did not change anything, nor do you need to, it works out perfectly well and the little suggestions in the directions are very helpful.

Coconut Curry Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This was very good and I actually toned down the amount of curry so the kids would eat it and they did. Very yummy way to incorporate cabbage into the menu.

Okra Gumbo

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I loved this BUT I used peas instead of okra, so I am pretty sure that disqualifies this from being an accurate review. It was yummy though, quanities were perfect and all ingredients blended well together.

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
Delicious. Since I only have a 5/13 inch baking dish and I used the quantities given, I made two and only had enough apple for one of them. I wonder had I made just one dish, would the apple be enough? I melted the cream cheese and mixed it up with the other ingredients, instead of putting it in in dollops. I also increased the cooking time as per a reviewer's advice, but it came out a bit overcooked, so the 45 min in the oven should be enough.

Peggy's Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
I am giving it 4 stars because my family loved it, but I didn't care much for it. I thought it was too greasy and not as light as a broccoli dish should be. Maybe it was something I did, because I did make some substitutions but nothing major and actually skipped the cream of chicken and butter.

Chicken in Savory Lemon Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
This did not taste all that much like lemon, as 1 tablespool of lemon juice can only go so far, but other than that was amazing! very rich and comforting taste. My family dipped break in the sauce and wiped their plates clean!

Broccoli Bean Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Not sure the flavors went well together - the garbanzo beans felt a bit out of place - but everybody ate up so it couldn't have been that bad :) I added some american cheese (kept the parm) and didn't have any cornstarch but the sauce was thick nonetheless so I doubt you even need it. A nice variation on mac and cheese.

Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
I agree with the contributor who said this was a little bland, but when you have kids that is not necessarily a bad thing. I had mine with salsa. Everybody had seconds and there were no leftovers. I replaced both the mozarella and cheddar with mexican cheese mix.

Greek Spaghetti

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I made some changes suggested by someone here, plus some of my own, and this turned out excellent! The children didn't guess it had spinach in it. I used fresh spinach, I caramelized the onions then slightly cooked the celery and green pepper too, I skipped the mayo and doubled the sour cream, I omitted the bread crumbs. I didn't have lemon pepper so I used pepper, garlic salt and creole seasoning. The parm topping was delicious!

Potato and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
This was horrible! My own fault, because I should have known potatoes and eggs with sour cream poured on top can not be good, but I did not expect flavors to not go at all and the runny appearance. Nobody touched it! What a waste.

Sauerkraut Hot Dish

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
I was fooled by the other reviews and the fact that I like all the ingredients separately, but I gave it 2 points because our toddler liked it, but she might have been just very hungry.

Garlic Caesar Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
This was ok, but nothing to write home about. I used top quality Caesar-style dressing, but I had to almost DOUBLE THE COOKING TIME! It turned out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, but I did not like the taste. Very artificial - if you'd like plain chicken dipped in salad dressing, go for this one. It was easy to make, I'll give it that...
