Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
Nothing exceptional. Very bland, wished I had omitted the lemon juice, perhaps because I froze steak with marinade I lost why it was in the recipe, and doubled the amount of worcetershire (sp).

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
I did everything per the recipe and I personally thought as did my non-fish eating spouse, that the fish was wonderful as stated in the recipe. I did not care for the sauce but my spouse loved it with one exception, she said the lemon slices sucked some of the seasoning and sauce away. So changes for next time: omit the sliced lemon, bump the lemon juice to 1-2TB, switch out mayo and sour cream for greek yogurt, if needed reduced with a little chicken stock.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I love plain hummus, without all the extra flair, and this was it! A traditional, basic hummus! I did go old school and soak dried chickpeas for a day in some salted water, drained, and then brought to a boil in more salted water and left to simmer for about 3 hours. I personally, after the first batch, would drop the tahini to 1/4c and the lemon juice to about 1/8c, would add in some of the juice the chickpeas boiled in and as always, I added more garlic. Absolutly wonderful!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Fantastic! Followed contributors suggestion and really didn't measure any of the dry ingredients; couple of potatoes, skin on, 3-4 stalks of celery, 4 large carrots, small onion, couple handfuls of ham.... hard to screw up! Unless you want soggy mashed potato like soup when you reheat, do add some water, broth, milk, something when microwaving leftovers, this bad boy gets THICK!

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Great! And I even messed up on one thing! I forgot to add the seasoning packet while making the roux so I just tossed it in the whole pot with the roux/cream mixture. Also, did this with fat-free half and half and it was really good, did add a touch of water when reheating but was great with a loaf of homemade sourdough!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
I don't typically make a lot of soups so when I say this was super easy, I'm not lying. I will say I made it per the recipe the first time and the next played, adding more of the veggies listed as well as some leeks I had left over, upped the broth and lentil amount to make it not quite so dense and omitted the tomato paste both times. EXCELLENT base to play around with or as written, thanks!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Ok so I made this with a butter recipe cake mix, vanilla pudding and white chocolate chips, but other than that didn't change a thing. And DON'T! I'm in Florida, so no high elevations to deal with and I found no need to change the oil amount. I cooked in two 9" round pans for 40 mins and they were perfect! Frosted with cream cheese icing, yum!

Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Admittedly, I didn't whip the cream to soft peaks, just whisked into mayo and combined with other. But I made this for 100, 25 pounds of chicken, and it was all gone at my wedding! People, including a local restaurant owner, have been begging me for the recipe! Ok, so here's what I did; boil skinless bone in breast meat with some salt, bay leaf and a pinch of powder chicken bouillon. Boiled the first batch of 12 pounds in that, didn't change just added water for second batch. Deboned and shredded, salted, added whole small red grapes, walnuts and mayo/cream mixture. It was GONE!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Loved this! I'm not great cooking pork and this recipe was easy and great. I'm not sure if the cooking times in the recipe were for thick chops but I followed the suggested cooking times of 20 mins covered and 10 mins uncovered. I also deglazed the pan with the wine and heated the gravy in the pan. Thanks for sharing!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Amazing! I added this to a chocolate peanut butter layer cake as the filling and it lightened the whole thing up so it wasn't so "Death by chocolate/peanut butter" without taking any flavor away. So simple and easy to make up!

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I had never had Corned beef as a kid since my mother can't stand it and hates the smell of cabbage. I LOVE the dish when I can find a good Irish restaurant to have it at and this recipe was amazing! I don't change a thing and even bought a larger slow cooker to cram it all in! I hate cooked carrots but still add it since others like them and they do add a lot to the flavor. I normally won't eat onion any bigger than minced but I was chowing down on the onion wedges because they were so tender and had so much flavor. This is something we have added to our monthly menu and it's always a hit with my partner who normally hates leftovers, fighting me for what's left!

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
My partner loved this. For dietary reasons next time I will change up a bit. First time around I used a whole small box of instant potatoes (felt like cheating) and that was way too much for me personally so here goes for my changes: I would up the meat to 1 1/2-2lbs which I browned with a little garlic and olive oil, salt and pepper and steak seasoning. Not really sure what the canned mushrooms added so next time will only add if I have some already in the pantry. I did a large can of Veg-All but next time I think I'll add just a can or two of corn and 2 cans green beans. I was served this once by an Englishman who layered it with meat, veggies, potatoes, and then cheese. Might try the cheese but not exactly a healthy addition! Lots of juice so it could stand to handle more veggies if using the recipe as stated. Very good and easy when using instant taters so something I will keep around for one of those nights where meal-in-a-bowl is welcomed!

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I gave this 4 stars as it was written. I changed some things and will add some things next time: 3 TB olive oil, we love garlic so a heaping tablespoon of minced jar garlic, 1c onion. Next time will add 1/4 white wine with chicken. Used one lg tomato but next time will use 2 drained cans Italian seasoned diced tomatoes. Will add olives, doubled lemon juice and feta and added more feta as garnish to top. I used a pound of farfalle pasta and with the amount of chicken (4 thin breasts) it was a good amount. I also added some dried basil since I didn't have the parsley. Good as written but when you grew up in Tarpon Springs you want REAL Greek tasting dishes!

Slow Cooker Chicken Creole

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
Very good. I did follow others suggestions and added 1 cup chicken broth, don't know if I needed to unless you want/like more of a Jambalaya consistency over rice. Served with 2 cups dry rice, and it was AWESOME. Added 2 jalepenos and 2 serrano peppers since we like things really hot and it was amazing. Also, made recipe with 2.5 pounds boneless/skinless chicken thighs instead of breasts and was great!
