Portuguese Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
These were delicious, easy, and extremely popular. Just an idea, but next time I would bake them on a baking rack on a foil lined cookie sheet. That way, any bacon grease will drip down rather than cook into the food and clean-up will be easier. These we so good and they went fast. Those who asked for the recipe were suprised at how simple they were to make. These will be regulars when I serve appetizers. Thanks!

Fajita Marinade I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
This is a GREAT marinade! I used it with chicken. The first time I made it as written and the family loved it. The next time I tweaked it a bit to my family's preferences and added 2 T more of lime, a handful of fresh chopped cilantro, and 1 1/2 t of cumin. I added red and yellow peppers and an onion to the marinade and let it sit for 12 hours. My mouth is watering while I type this. It is now a family fave and will be in the weekly rotation. Thanks, Robbie! *NOTE*: The last time I made this recipe I was in a hurry and threw everything together in a matter of minutes. I didn't have Liquid Smoke, so I used Tabasco Brand Chipolte sauce for the smoky flavor. I didn't really have time to accurately measure the ingredients, and poured straight from the bottle into the marinade. I was a little nervous about how it was going to turn out. I marinaded the chicken and held out a little marinade to use for the onions and red, orange, and yellow peppers. It turned out to be fantastic! I don't think you can go wrong with this marinade!

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!

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.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
This recipe is a keeper! I'm anxious to try it again using all of the ingredients listed in the recipe. I made this on the fly and had to improvise with what I had on hand. I also made some changes based on the reviews. My whole family loved this - even my youngest who adamantly HATES alfredo. I was expecting to give him leftover meatloaf, but everyone else was raving about the alfredo so he took a small taste and then filled up his plate! Here are my changes: added 2 cloves of minced garlic, only used pecorino romano as I had no parmesan, used half-and-half in place of heavy cream. I let the half-an-half and cheese cook a while so it would thicken as it was very thin, then spooned some of that into the egg so the egg would not cook. I also added some fresh chopped parsley. The sauce thickened very nicely, so I would hesitate to use heavy cream due to the added calories. We loved this!

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.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This was a simple and tasty dish! Toasting the walnuts is key. You can toast them in the oven or they can be toasted in a non-stick pan, tossing frequently.

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!

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!

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.

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!

Great Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
We LOVED this. I followed some suggestions and used spice cake mix, pecans, and 1 c melted butter. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, but made my own using: 2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp nutmeg. Will definitely put this on the fall rotation, as it was a real winner. Thanks!

Orange Roughy with Citrus Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
This was a real hit with my family. I took the advice of other reviewers, and used more orange juice than lime juice. The proportions I used were: 3 T orange juice, 2 T lime juice, 1 T lemon juice. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. This was good with couscous and the Green Beans with Walnuts recipe from this site. Definitely a keeper!

Blueberry Dump Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
Super quick and easy and very good. Next time I may try this recipe using a lemon cake mix. I took another reviewer's advice and instead of using melted butter I shaved thin slices and placed it on the top of the cake mix. We will definitely have this again!

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
I really wasn't expecting too much given the list of ingredients, but I was wrong. My family LOVED this recipe and we have since had it for guests who raved about it as well. It's moist and has great flavor. I used leftovers in a salad the next day for lunch and then in a pasta salad for dinner. Thanks!

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!

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!
