Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
We loved this dish- with some modification. I followed recommendations made by others and doubled the sauce, and added a little water. I upped the seasonings quite a lot, and used 1/2 fresh polish sausage (homemade) and 1/2 lean ground beef. I think this recipe would have been quite bland without those additional seasonings and changes. Will make again. Here's a tip by the way- don't bother to boil the cabbage. Just put the cored cabbage in a pie plate, loosely cover it with plastic wrap and microwave it for 5-6 minutes. It steams perfectly and cuts way down on time and hot boiling water. The leaves just peel right off. If the inner leaves are still too stiff, stick it back in the microwave for an additional 2 minutes or so. Super easy.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: May 23, 2001
The whole family loved this. I used Cream of Chicken soup, lowfat cheese and lite sour cream. It was excellent with those changes.

Quick and Easy Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I was skeptical that this would be a success, however I had almost all the ingredients on hand so I went ahead with it. It is really good. I added more chopped clams, as we really like it clammy, and a couple of small potatoes cut into cubes. I also love dried thyme in my chowder so I added about 1 tsp. This was enjoyed by all, and comments were that it was the best chowder they'd had. :) I will be making this again and again.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
This is a very delicious recipe. After reading the reviews, I also doubled the seasoning mixture and added Chimayo Chile powder. It was so good in tacos, then burritos, and pork enchiladas, tostados. This is a huge new favorite with us.

Simple Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
This is just like Grandma and Mom used to make. The only thing I do differently is use low sodium chicken broth and I throw in large chunks of celery, onion and carrot, sprig of thyme and rosemary to season it up. I strain those out later. The hand made noodles are really what makes this special. I have done it with store-bought but it's not the same. These noodles are easy, even for novices. Growing up we always ate this over mashed potatoes, and that is what I still do! It's delicious comfort food at it's best. Takes me back to childhood. That's what this one is all about for me. :)

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
These are very good. I accidentally doubled the amount of applesauce, they were really moist! Not a bad mistake at all. I might do it that way again! I also added cinnamon, really yum!

Amanda's Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
This is a very good recipe and I am happy I found it. The only change I did was using a Chicken Italian sausage in place of the beef. I also poured some of the marinara around the peppers before baking them. Then I warmed the rest of the sauce and served it over the top as the recipe stated. I also used fresh mozzarella cheese which I think gave it some nice moisture since the chicken sausage may have a tendency to get dried out. I used my meat thermometer to check that it was cooked through. Very nice recipe that could be played with in many variations for fun. I might think of adding sliced olives, etc, or other interesting "pizza topping" type of items to this. Thank you for posting this Amanda.

Ronaldo's Beef Carnitas

Reviewed: May 23, 2001
We really liked this meat. It cooked while I was doing other things, very flavorful and so tender it fell apart. We put this in burritos, I would use it for enchiladas, tacos or any other meat-based mexican dish.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

This was really good, just needed to add about 1.5 - 2 tsp cinnamon to make it perfect!

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I really like this recipe and have made it several times, with variations. The recipe as is is good, I use milk instead of the water. I have also made a variation with pork chops instead of ham. I seasoned and browned the pork chops (4) and layered them in between a couple of layers of the potatoes with the soup mixture mixed right into them. That went about 5 hours and was delicious. I also have made variations with mushrooms, herbs, etc. The recipe is good comfort food as is, not gourmet, just good eating!

Melinda's Porcupine Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
I've been making this recipe since I was a kid! (many years) I've tweaked it over the years with more seasonings, a bit of hot sauce, etc. but this is the basic recipe I have been using. It's always popular with my family even though it is very basic home cooking. I don't always brown the meatballs first if I don't have time, if you get the sauce boiling in the pan, you can just drop the balls in gently and they will hold together. Or, you can brown them in the oven as others have done to cut back on time. I love the nostalgia of this dish. Sometimes we serve them with baked potatoes, or spaghetti squash or on toasted french sandwich rolls.

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: May 23, 2001
I thought this lacked some flavor. It is worth experimenting with, however, I would add chopped fresh herbs, perhaps Feta instead of Cheddar for more flavor, etc. It has potential!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Was just okay, probably won't make again. Can't put my finger on it but it was missing depth of flavor. Still looking for a great Szechwan Shriimp recipe.
