Creamy Parmesan Sauce for Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
Any time my wife has seconds on anything, I know it was a big success. And that's what she did with this. I followed the recipe almost exactly, the only changes: substituted red onion (didn't have green) and added garlic (because we always include garlic). I had a question about hi or low temp for the broiler. Opted for hi and it turned out just right. Also, next time I make it I will create a little wall with the aluminum foil around the fish to prevent the creamy sauce from spilling.

Banana Smoothie I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
Very easy and simple. Good blend and balance of flavors. The pinch of cinnamon gives it a special flair--both in taste and appearance.

Simple Pork Rib Dry Rub

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2013
Definitely too hot in its original form. I followed the toned down version and felt it was still too much. Also, the outer layer was too tough. But that might be my fault for leaving it on too long. I will try it again with appropriate adjustments: Less cayenne, and shorter time on the grill.

Spaghetti with a Kick

Reviewed: May 30, 2013
We tried this for the first time tonight because I wanted something meatless for a change. My wife rated it 9 out of 10. I thought it could use more flavor. One problem was the recipe calls for 16 oz jar of spaghetti sauce and all I had were 24 oz jars. So I adjusted the cumin and hot sauce accordingly. But it still came out more subdued than I like it. So next time I'll increase both cumin and hot sauce even more. And I'll probably throw in a pinch of cayenne as well. Colorful appearance was great; texture was great. It was just the mild flavor that brought it down for me.

Slow Cooker Cider Pork Roast

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
I prepared this exactly as the recipe says and it came out very bland tasting. Too much water; couldn't taste any effect from the cider or the apple or the garlic or the pork for that matter. I'll try it again, but will definitely take into account some of the suggestions from others: less water, more other things. And why use a processor? It only added time and trouble without contributing to the final product.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
This was incredibly good. So good that I could not stop at just a little taste test. Basically just followed the directions. Next time I'll try the black beans that others mentioned. And the slow cooker angle sounds interesting too.

Chinese Roast Chicken with Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Turned out great: tasty and moist. Other complained about saltiness, but we did not find that to be so. The taste was a good balance. I followed another review and added chopped onion and minced garlic. Also, basted the chicken a couple times during the bake-time. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly.

Tasty Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
excellent taste: not too much, not too little. Easy. I cooked chicken legs. Needed full 50 minutes to cook through. Served with broccoli and steamed, long-grain brown rice.

Cheesy Baked Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
WOW! delicious! I was concerned about cooking that long at that temp. But it worked out just great. Our quantity of salmon was a little less than the recipe calls for. Otherwise the only adjustments we made was to use more garlic (3 cloves instead of 2) and more green onions & more cheese (the latter because others had recommended). Salmon flavor still came through in just the right balance of flavors.

Smoked Salmon Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
I've made this twice now & both times a great hit. Second time halved cream cheese because it's just wife & me. Great blend of flavors. But I prefer a little more of the Worcestershire & hot sauce; so I kept original amount of those with just half of the cream cheese.

Baked Cornish Game Hens

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
Very popular with our dinner guests. So moist and tasty. Recipe doesn't say how long to brown the hens at 500. We tried 10 minutes but they still weren't quite brown. So we switched to broiler for a couple minutes more. Otherwise, I followed recipe exactly. Next time I might try some corn bread stuffing including ingredients in recipe. We will definitely use this again.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
easy and tasty. Our pork roast was 3 1/2 lbs so I figured for a little longer cooking time. Plus I added potatoes, carrots, and celery (in addition to the onion). As a result, I did not taste the hot sauce that gives the dish its name. So next time I'll add more hot sauce, maybe 1/2 tsp or so. And I think I'll pull back on the sugar. All that to say, It's an easy recipe to tweak to your personal preferences. Second time, I used pork loin chops and doubled the sauce. Fortunately I stopped the cooking at 4hours (instead of 6 per recipe) because with the chops, it needs less time. Even so, at 4 hours, it seemed a little dry to me. That was my doing, not the fault of the recipe. NOTE TO SELF: with chops, cook about 3 or 3 1/2 hrs.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Huge success; easy and versatile. We parboiled the chicken and then used the stock from the parboiling in place of the water. This eliminated the need for the chicken bullion. As others have suggested, the amount of water you use would depend on how thick you like your soup. We added to the stock mentioned above until we had 10 cups liquid. This seemed like a happy medium once we added the noodles. But we did add a little salt (but not nearly as much as would have been in the bullion). We used shell noodles instead of the traditional flat noodles. Took to a pot luck at church & it was totally gone in no time.

Alison's Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
This was outstanding: tasty & easy. I followed some of the other suggestions: half the bullion, increased water to 3 cups. Maybe it was the extra water, but 8 hrs was not long enough. The other adjustment: I reduced the pepper slightly. Both my wife & I loved it. Will definitely make it again.

Curried Salmon Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
WOW! excellent combination. I overcooked our salmon the night before. So I was looking for something to redeem it. This salad definitely deserves the high ratings it has received. I'm not sure how much salmon we included, probably more than the 8oz called for. Everything else, I followed the instructions exactly. Everybody has their own preference of the amount of curry. But this made a perfect balance for my wife and I. We will definitely use this again, whether or not I overcook the entree.
