Easy Mexican Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This was a very simple recipe. I used milk only and I used one tablespoon of regular cocoa plus two and a half tablespoons of chocolate milk mix to the recipe. Along with the cinnamon and spices it turned out just great! Thanks for sharing.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I made this yesterday and was pleased with the results. I added minced garlic along with the onions and cooked them with the beef. I used more beef than the recipe called for. I also added Italian spices to the beef. I found the potatos to be extremely dry so I added more butter and milk. My husband loved the dish but overall I found it a bit bland. I will add peas and corn next time and probably some more pepper and salt and most likely other spices. This was overall a good recipe; very easy to make, inexpensive and makes well more than six servings!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
Fantastic recipe! I made a few minor adjustments to the recipe such as, I used garbanzo beans instead of kidney beans. I also used minced beef in. I browned the meat in a bit of olive oil and when partially cooked I added the garlic, followed by the carrots and celery. One minute later I added the onions and let the mixture cook through. I used two veggie cubes and two chicken cubes instead of chicken stock and I also used one small can of tomoto puree. I had to add more water since I used meat and since I also added a bit more vegetables than were called for, but that's due to personal liking. I froze half and will definitely enjoy it in the future!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 15, 2007
I have made this recipe twice now for parties and I never went home with extras! I followed some of the other reviewers comments and added more brown sugar than white sugar. Also, I experimented by cutting up a chocolate candy bar and using it in addition to the chocolate chips; amazing results! For the second batch I used a mixture of cut up chocolate bar and caramel and almond crunch...again a great result. These were the best cookies I have ever made and I have made a lot!

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
I found this recipe when I was searching for something I could make with my old apples. It was great! I followed some suggestions of others and added my own take. Here's what I did: I used 1 cup all-purpose flour and 1 cup whole whear flour plus about 1/2 cup of oats. I added a bit more than the recommended measurments for baking powder and baking soda. I also pureed two apples with some cinnamon. I cut up two more apples (did not peel) and covered in a pinch of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and honey and set them aside until needed. I also used part brown sugar and part white sugar instead of all white sugar. I also added crushed hazlenuts to the batter. I baked part of the batter in a muffin tin and used the rest to make three small bread loaves. For two loaves of bread I added raisins. The results for both versions were more than I could have asked for! My husband loved them, my friends loved them and I didn't feel too guilty for eating them!

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
This is an excellent recipe! I've already cooked it three times. I made a few slight modifications but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as stated. I didn't use so much oil, instead I cooked the pork chops for a few minutes on each side in the same skillet which had been used for the onions. While the meet was cooking I added balsamic vinegar and let it cook until evaporated. Then I proceeded to follow the recipe. I also added Italian powder mix (to taste) and at the end of cooking time, I added the feta cheese and let it cook down a bit before serving. I will definitely be making this again and again!

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This was the first successful pie crust I've ever made! I received so many compliments...no one knew it was my first time! I only made one adjustment, I added a few tablespoons of ice cold water after cutting in the shortening. I kept the dough balls in the fridge overnight and rolled it out the next day. Perfect!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
I decided to cook this for a recent dinner party and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! It was fantastic and people were complimenting me all night! I did make a few modifications based on the suggestions by others. I decreased the amount of salt by half and used only half of the olive oil. I also let the fish marinate all day (about 6 hours). The marinade did not smell very delicious so I had my doubts but the end result was amazing! Thanks for the excellent recipe Norma!

Old-World Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
I loved this recipe and so did my husband. I found this to be similar to Russian borsch; only with a twist..the tomatoes. I did not have celery so I omitted it from the recipe. I also did not have tomato-vegetable juice cocktail so I blended a can of diced tomatoes with two small cans of tomatoe puree. I also used 2 chicken bulion cubes and 2 vegetable cubes because I didn't have the other ingredients. I took the advice of another reviewer and also added bay leaves. Lastly, I cooked it with pork cubes and sauteed the onions and carrots before adding to the soup. It was excellent! Thanks!

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2005
I loved this recipe and will definitely make it again! I made a few substitutions. I hate mayo so I used low-fat plain yogurt instead. I used half of a small red onion because I didn't have any shallots. I also followed the recommendation of others who said to add two cans of tuna. My tuna was canned in water so I drained them and then added nearly one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil to the salad. I served mine on whole-wheat wraps and they were incredible...better than you can get in a sandwich shop!

I made this for my Russian husband. He thought they were excellent; just like his mom makes. It was a little bit messy to prepare but the end result was great.

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2005
I made this soup on a Friday and had enough for the entire weekend! I loved the taste and enjoyed the fact that it was very nutritious! Tastes great with a dollop of sour cream or smetana.

This recipe is excellent! I prepared following the exact recipe. My husband thought I bought it from the Chinese restaurant!! I'll definitely make again but maybe I'll try it with shrimp or chicken.
