Turkey Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2004
I've made this a few times now, and have cut down slightly on the bread crumbs. Otherwise, it's very tasty just as it is. Also, my one-year-old loves it!

Broccoli Chicken Roli

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
I made some changes, and thought it was very good. I used about 1/2 the amount of onions and green peppers (personal taste). The biggest change was that I used wonton wrappers instead of the crescent rolls. After stuffing the wontons, I baked them at 400 degrees for about 11 minutes (or until golden brown). I thought the wonton wrappers gave it a nice, light flavor. You could actually taste the filling, and it wasn't too bready.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
These were good, but a little too sweet. I used the pre-made meatballs from BJ's freezer section, so it took just a matter of minutes to put everything together and throw in the crockpot. I warmed it on low for a few hours until our party.

Barley Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
Very good recipe. I did not add any bacon or green pepper since I did not have any, and I used chicken breast instead of dark meat. Also, I did not add mushrooms because of my husband. Next time I will add celery and more carrots to make it even healthier. The only downside is that my 2-year-old did not like all the seasoning and tried to pick it off the barley.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
This was very easy to make and the caramel was better than anything I've ever tasted from the store. Two bags of microwave popcorn work out perfectly for the amount of caramel. So worth the effort!

Ham, Potato and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
I also used hashbrowns instead of french fries to avoid the soggy factor, but it was still too soggy and soupy for my taste. Perhaps frying the hashbrowns first to give them a crunch would be better??

Beefy Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
Very good, but next time I might cut back on the amount of ketchup. It was a little too sweet. I'll definitely make this again!

Chicken Chimi in the Oven

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2005
This was awesome! I didn't put the salsa mixture in the food processor because I was trying to speed up the prep time. Actually, I think I prefer having the salsa whole. Like other reviewers, I cut back on the amount of chili powder used. Also, since I had so much other food in the fridge to eat up, I put these in freezer bags to have handy as quick treats/dinners. I defrosted it in the microwave, then put it in the toaster oven for crispiness. In the last couple of minutes, I added cheese on top. Tasted just as good after being frozen as it was when it was fresh.

Chi Tan T'ang (Egg Drop Soup)

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2004
The good news is that it's very easy to make. However, I should have followed my instincts and pass by this recipe. Instead, I made it based on the reviews, and was disappointed. Sorry. The taste of the soy sauce and vinegar were too strong for my tastes. I had to water it down to make it edible. Amazingly, though, my picky 2-year old ate it. Go figure. I'll stick with my old recipe. Thanks anyway.

Slow Cooker Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2004
I must have a smaller sized crock pot because I was only able to fit about 5 cups of water. It tasted fabulous. The barley is a nice change from using potatoes all the time. By the way, I ended up adding the 6th cup of water after the soup was done in order to make it more liquidy and to cut down on the salty taste.

Amazing Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
The combination of the ingredients makes a nice, smooth taste. I followed other suggestions and cut down on the amount of onions. I thought there were still too many, but my husband loved it and literally ate half of the squash while standing at the stove.

Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
It was good, but I didn't care for the onions. If I make this again I'll simply omit them. Otherwise, very tasty.

Turkey Empanadas Grande

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
So tasty! I didn't have any parsley or cilantro, but the remaining ingredients were perfect. The red pepper flakes gave a bit of a kick to it, and even my picky 1-year old ate it up. It tasted just like the empanadas my Argentine husband makes. I also didn't have any tapas (pastry actually used for empanadas)but it tasted great with some homemade tortilla shells.

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I have made this recipe several times, and each time the turkey comes out juicy and flavorful. Also, there is plenty of juice left over to make a ton of gravy. Delicious!!
