Unstuffing Side Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
I made this for Christmas dinner. I thought it was great! My wife didn't like it, as she prefers the traditional stuffing instead. Still good, though.

Chili Barbecue Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
Very, very good. I had six center cut chops, the typical kind from the supermarket. I increased the marinate to 3/4 cup each dressing and BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's), and kept the chili powder at the recipe level. I put the chops and all but 1/2 cup of the marinate in a plastic bag, and refrigerated them for about 6 hours, turning them over 3 times. I used a wok to brown and finish them. Browning was about 4 minutes per side. I stacked them all in the wok after browning, and poured on the extra marinate. It wasn't quite enough, so I make another 3/4 cup, but left out the chili powder this go-round. I let it simmer about 30 minutes. They weren't dry at all, and the sauce was exceptional. Definitely a keeper.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
This was pretty good. I usually make my C'N D from scratch, but was looking at something quicker. So, no slow cooker. I used a dutch oven, put in the soups, added chicken broth, and leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I rolled out each individual Texas size biscuits from the local IGA (1 can), and put them into the slow boil soup. I covered it for 15 minutes, then let it go 10 minutes uncovered. My wife and FIL could'nt tell it wasn't the scratch version.

Pan-Roasted Steak and Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
I cooked this for my wife and FIL. They thought it pretty good. They don't like onions, so I left them out, and just worked the flank steak. I left the stock at 1/2 cup, since it was sans onions. Way easy, I'll be making this again.

Scalloped Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
This is a pretty good recipe. I made it per instructions and I reduced the servings to 4 instead of 12. I think it may need a little milk to up the creaminess factor, but that's the way we like it.

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
I followed other reviewer's ideas: cut to sugar to 1 cup, and used OJ instead of water. I'll never go back to the canned stuff again.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
The look and plating of the casserole is somewhat loose. But, the taste is great!. I cooked boneless chicken breasts in 16oz of Pace medium picante for a couple of hours on low heat, then shredded the meat. As previously mentioned, I only put in 8oz of sour cream. It didn't need any more than that. We will be making this on a regular basis.

Sunday Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
This came out pretty good, my wife and father in law liked it a lot. I added a bit of cayenne, and left out the dill weed since I didn't have any. I was asked to make it again next weekend.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
True to his word, Sarge's bbq pork is great. I had a 5 lb boneless shoulder. Seasoned it with seasoning salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. I upped the coffee to 1 cup, which I added to one cup of beef broth. I put it in the cooker at 8:30am, it's now 3:30 pm, pulled, and back into the crock with 1/2 bottle of Ray's with a cup of the drippings. My wife loves it! Thanks, Sarge.

Spicy Beef Curry Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
Like some others, I found this was good, but the curry componenet was barely noticeable. It ended up as a basic stew, more or less. It was still good, though.

Easy Beef Strogonoff

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
This was pretty good as a base. My wife loved it. I left out the sour cream, and used onion and garlic powder since she doesn't like onions. I also added a tablespooon of dijon mustard. We'll make it again.

Baked Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
I make spinach stuffed tomatoes occasionally, it's a side dish favorite. I made this for my wife last night. I left out the bell pepper, she don't care for that. But the bacon was a hit! Plus, I mixed in some shredded cheddar, and covered the tomato with a slice of provolone about 3 minutes before taking it out of the oven. She gave it 5 stars.

Chicken Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
I usually do a lighter torilla soup, and thought the amount of tomatoes would not be good. I was wrong. This is great - I added one chopped jalapeno to the cilanto/onion, and it turned out great.

Shrimp and Andouille Sausage with Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
I used hot Italian sausage, spicy brown mustard, half and half, and thawed frozen shrimp. Other than that, followed the recipe pretty close. The sauce was a bit grainy, but it was appearance only. The taste was great. My family says this is a keeper

Grandma's Pear Preserves

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2004
I did this in large part based on the reviews. I must have done something wrong - the liquid, after 2 weeks, is no where close to set - it's of a light syrup consistency. I didn't deviate from the recipe, or so I thought.

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2004
I didn't add the spinach, but otherwise followed the recipe. I will definitely make this one a keeper!
