Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
This was good. Nice flavor. Our chops were much too thick, so the time was off, but with a regular chop I think this recipe would be perfect!

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
Folkeat their lwed the recipe exactly, and my family loved this! I didn't peel the potatoes, and used the jalapeno despite my apprehension about it being too 'hot'. I'm glad I didn't alter the recipe. It had great flavor with the skins, garlic, butter, and veggies. It's a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies. A keeper! Thanks, Steve!

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
We liked this a lot! I followed the recipe as written, except for two things: I used crushed Ritz Crackers, as I didn't have chips on hand, and I baked it at 400 for about 10 minutes and then finished it up under the broiler at the end. It was flakey, moist, and had good flavor. Thanks! This is a keeper!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
Very good. This gets thick and sticky if you don't keep it warmed. I subbed brown sugar for the karo b/c that's what I had on hand. I microwaved the mixture just before each basting and basted a LOT. Tasted like the store bought, more expensive ham. Thanks, Colleen!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
A huge hit. I wasn't sure if the recipe called for the shredded or cubed hash browns, and I had the shredded on hand so that's what I used. Followed the recipe exactly, except for the addition of a little black pepper and reducing the amount of grated Parm on top. My husband and sons LOVED this and it's going into the rotation. Good served with a green salad and some fruit.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
I found this recipe b/c I was trying to use up leftover Christmas ham. I didn't know if my family would like black-eyed peas, as I had never served them before. It was a hit. I followed the recipe exactly, and served it with Trader Joe's corn bread (THE BEST!). This was a good cold weather comfort meal!

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
A good recipe. I used crushed graham crackers for the crust, as that's all I had on hand. It made the bottom very crumbly and a tad messy, so next time I think I'll try another reviewer's suggestion of using a whole Nilla wafer/cookie on the bottom. I used the cherry pie filling for some and then for a little variety I topped some with RediWhip and then topped that with mini chocolate chips. A huge hit with kids and adults.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
My family LOVED this recipe! I followed it exactly, except for the following changes: only 2 onions (all I had), added about 1/4 lb chopped baby bella mushrooms when sauteeing vegetables, and added fresh thyme. A nice creamy and hearty soup. A keeper!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This was restaurant-quality. I followed the recipe exactly as written and we loved it. In the future I might try with fresh spinach and/or cannellini beans, NOT that it needs and sprucing-up.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This was great! My only changes: yellow onion instead of green onions; fresh mushrooms instead of canned, marinated the beef in red wine and omitted from additional wine to recipe, and added 1/3 c of cream cheese. Everyone loved it! Thanks, Donna!

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
The first time I made this I liked it, but the spices didn't dissolve. The next time I made this I doubled the spices and added it to the beans in the grinder portion of my coffee maker. If you don't have a grinder, you could add the spices to the grounds when brewing the coffee. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a T. Great recipe!

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
I made this tonight and followed the recipe exactly. Marinated about 5 hours and my husband grilled it... to perfection. The trick is to remove it as soon as it's done and then cover it with foil and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, so it's nice and juicy. Great flavor! A keeper!

Tomato Brie Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
We loved this, however I made the following modifications just because I had the items on hand and wanted to use them. Turned out great and will go into our rotation. Changes: Combined brie, some pesto, fresh basil, cherry tomatoes (cut in half) and freshly grated parmesan - let sit on counter for 3-4 hours. Add to freshly cooked bowtie pasta. serve immediately with fresh parm.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
This was great! I followed suggestions of other reviewers and sweated the eggplant using sea salt for 30 minutes, and then rinsing and patting dry. I only used one very large eggplant. I also upped the oven temp to 400 degrees, and baked it for 5 minutes per side. Then, because of time, I asslembled it as instructed and then microwaved it for 12 minutes on high, turning halfway through. Served it with pasta and it was a huge hit!

Apple Maple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
This was quick, easy, and very tasty! I doubled the recipe in a 9x13 and sprinkled cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg over the apples before adding the topping. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. Served it warm with vanilla ice cream. Everyone had seconds! I'd love to try it with cranberries along with the apples next time. Definitely a keeper.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
I tried this with great success after reading the reviews and making the following changes: 1 1/3 cups of milk, 1/3 C butter, 1 clove of garlic, minced. I added oregano and a couple grates of nutmeg at the very end. Make sure you add the milk in small increments and whisk it as you go. Great recipe, Dawn! Thanks!

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
We LOVED this recipe, and it will go into our rotation. I read reviews and made the following changes to the original recipe: Used OJ in place of water for the sauce. Changed quantities to: 1 1/2 Tbsp orange zest, 1 tsp minced fresh ginger root, 1 tsp minced garlic, 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes. I used OJ with the cornstarch instead of water, and browned the chicken completely on both sides in equal amounts of vegetable oil and sesame oil. I placed the cooked chicken in a glass baking dish in a 250 degree oven while cooking the rest of the chicken. I cooked the sauce, but did not add the chicken back to the pan. Instead, I drizzled the sauce over the chicken and then gently mixed it and immediately served it over some fluffy basmati rice. We can't wait for the leftovers! Delish!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I have made this several times, several different ways, and gotten rave reviews. The original recipe as-is is very sweet and rich. It is time consuming to sift the sugar/cocoa mixture, but well worth it if you have the time. Also, be sure to fully whip the butter before adding the sugar/cocoa mixture, and then mix until smooth in order to get a creamy frosting that isn't 'grainy'. I have also made this recipe with about half the butter and without sifting the sugar/cocoa, and with 2% milk rather than the evaporated milk. It was still very good and I don't think the taste suffered at all. With either recipe, you may have to add a little more of the milk (in small increments) to reach the right consistency. Next time I am going to try using coffee in place of milk for a mocha flavor. This is a recipe you can do a lot with and you can't go wrong!

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
So far, this recipe is the closest I have found to a good restaurant-quality Caesar salad. The first round, I followed the recipe as written. My family found it to be a touch too garlicky and anchovy-ish, so the next time I used 2 large heads of garlic and 3 anchovies. Perfection! I grated fresh parm on top of the salads and served them on chilled plates with lemon wedges. The whole family loved it. Just play around with the garlic and anchovy quantities until you find your liking. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks!
