Real Texas Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
This was an ok Chili. Perhaps I just like a more traditional one though. My husband did not like the cubed meat (I didn't mind though). I also really missed beans, I think that I would add them next time for more texture and taste.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Really liked the marinade...our mistake was not having a very good cut of meat. (We bought a half of a cow that was grass fed. The steaks weren't the best this time around) I can't wait to try it again with a really great steak! I know that it will be much more delicious.

Simple Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
I normally don't like the thought of hot mayonnaise and tuna, but I decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised! The combo of balsamic, dijon and dill pickle really made an interesting flavor. I will make it again. Very good.

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Amazing!! Best Quiche I have ever made or eaten with a few alterations! I sauted 2 cloves garlic, 1 medium diced red pepper, and 1 medium diced red onion...I added that to the batter mixture. I used a half a package of frozen Spinach (instead of broccoli), and then I added 1/2 tsp Dry Ground Mustard, 1/2 tsp Onion Powder and 1/2 tsp of Blk Pepper (as others suggested). So many people asked me for the recipe! It was a huge hit!

Never Enough Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
My family loved it! I omitted the can of mushrooms and I didn't miss it at all. I really don't like canned mushrooms very much and didn't want to bother with cooking down some fresh ones. I will definately make it again. The cheese and bacon made it so much better than the traditional cassorole. Thanks!

Dill Pickle Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I thought this was very good!! I did make a few substitutions though. I used a cup of Zesta crackers instead of the bread. I also substituted the pickles and pickle juice for banana pepper rings and juice. I didn't have any pickles in the house and it ended up being a GREAT substition! I will make it again. Even my one year old loved it and I have the hardest time getting him to eat ground beef.

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I made this for my son's birthday party. It was a total hit!!! I made it only with salami, not need for pepperoni too. Added cauliflower for a little crunch and also added a can of chopped artichokes. I also added large chunks of mozzeralla cheese, instead of Asiago, along with some grated parmeson to coat everything. I also added sliced black and green olives. Soo good! I would maybe use white balsamic vinegar next time. Really loved it!!!!

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I thought that this was good. My husband likes the traditional way to make shrimp scampi much better, but I really enjoyed the different flavor (the djion) and it seemed a bit healthier than the versions that the shrimp is sitting in a bath of butter. I used precooked shrimp, which made the shrimp a bit overcooked in the end, next time I would buy raw. (but that is what I had on hand) Overall good recipe.

Lyonnaise Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I really liked this recipe. I used frozen hashbrowns for this recipe, which made is REALLY easy. I thawed the harshbrowns slowly in the microwave first, while I was sweating the onions. (which took closer to 30 minutes) I also baked it for close to an hour so that the top of the hashbrowns started to get crispy. The carmelized onion gave the side dish really good flavor. I would make this again!

Spaghetti Squash Medley

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I made this recipe because I had a spaghetti squash from my garden that I didn't know what to do with. Recipe was pretty good...I added leftover sausage and more seasonings to add flavor. (since those posting said recipe needed it) I used frozen veggies, since that was all I had. I would use fresh if I ever made it again. I also did not microwave at all, I used the top of the stove and then baked at 350 for 20 minutes. It was a good way to use up veggies and leftovers.

Pasta Carcione

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I had leftover goat cheese froma party, that I didn't know what to do with. This recipe was simple and tasty. It was a nice light lunch for me that used up items that I had on hand!

Bacon Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
Good comfort food. I added carrots, celery and peas and garlic, but omitted the corn, since I didn't have any in the house. I also used red potatoes, since that is what I had. I also used cream of mushroom soup instead of the half and half and it turned out really yummy. I also just used Bisquik for the dummplings. Good recipe, I would make it again.

French Onion Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Wasn't the best I have ever had, but was fun to make. We carmelized the onions for a very long time before finishing the soup, not sure if that helped the soup or not. I don't think that I will try this recipe again.

Baked Asian-Style Honey Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
I added extra soy sauce and added Dijon mustard and rice vinegar to the marinade and let it sit overnight. (Otherwise it seemed like there wasn't enough to marinade and baste it.) I seared it quickly on the stove top in my Dutch oven and placed it in the oven at 350 degrees until juices ran clear. It was a hit!

Hamburger Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
I thought that it ended up being a bit too soupy, but it had really good flavor. I added a little garlic, but otherwise followed the recipe. I would maybe add another potato or two, next time.

Pork Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
I really loved this dish!! I have never made anything like it...fun! Quite time consuming (wrapping the wontons), but worth it!! I froze most of them on a cookie sheet and then bagged them, so that I can pull them out as an appetizer any time! My husband asked me to deep fry them next time, but I think I would like it either way. They were a hit at my Asian food themed party!
