Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
This would probably have been wonderful, but we didn't have sherry on hand, and another reviewer said that you could subsitute 1 tsp of vanilla for 1 tbsp of sherry, and that was a big mistake for us, since the meat came out tasting sweet, which was not good. Next time I will follow the recipe exactly with the sherry. Would have been pretty tasty otherwise!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
I don't know what else to say, other than this is THE BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE in the galaxy- if you don't make this cake your life will never be complete.

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
WONDERFUL recipe! I put in about 1 1/4 cups of sour cream to make it a bit more moist. Also- mix the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture with some melted butter to form a soft crumble. I put some of the crumble in the bottom of a bundt pan, then 1/2 the batter, then more crumble, then the rest of the batter. Baked it for 55 minutes- it came out beautifully and it was a big hit! Thanks for the great recipe!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
Oh my GOODNESS this was sooo good!! Definitely cook the chicken IN the soup. We used tortilla chips- good choice. Sliced avocados on top was the perfect finish. If you have ever had authentic tortilla soup in the southwest, try this soup and you won't be disappointed! My whole family loved it!

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2006
This turned out to be a tasty, rib-stickin' meal! I used an additional tbs of mayo, a bit more cheese, and bread crumbs on top instead of stuffing mix (I was out). Kids loved it!

Cissy's Shrimp Penne

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
This was SUPERB! We used 2-3 times the garlic and shallots that were called for. The reduction took a bit longer since we were being careful not to scorch the garlic- maybe up to 40 minutes total. We also used close to a full pound of pasta. This dish had a wonderful flavor and we all loved it. This was an instant favorite!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2006
This was WONDERFUL- my husband said that it was quite possibly one of the best dishes I have ever made! A few small changes- I used dried basil, about half of the red pepper, and I cubed the chicken, tossed it in the bread crumb mix, and then baked it in the oven at 375 for 30 minutes. I ladled the sauce over the penne pasta, topped it with the baked chicken, and sprinkled shredded italian cheese over all. It was scrumptious! Thanks for the great recipe!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
Wonderful recipe- definitely use a Bundt pan- and put foil or a pan underneath because it will bubble out and over the side of the pan. I left out the walnuts and raisins since my boys don't like them and it was a big hit! Nice presentation and it was fun to make. Thanks for the great recipe!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
It was pretty good- but not a light dish. If you are trying to eat healthy, this is not the recipe for you.

Curried Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
I enjoyed this recipe and am making the following suggestions: use the liquid in the cans of chickpeas instead of the water, and add 1/4 cup of tahini (sesame paste). I also added one small jar of artichoke hearts and a few dashes of black pepper. Great combination of flavors!

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
What a great stew! I used 2lbs of beef stew meat instead of lamb, and added one parsnip (diced). Also- I de-glazed the pan using the 1 cup of white wine. It took the veggies about 45 minutes to soften up in the pot so adjust the time to accommodate. Great with crusty bread on a cold rainy day!

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
Wonderful flavor, great texture- the only thing I will do differently next time is lower the temperature on my oven to 375 since the bottoms of my rolls started to smoke at about 10 minutes into baking. It is critical that you do not heat up the milk mixture or the melted butter too much- this will kill the yeast as other reviewers have said and ruin the batch.

Al's Sufferin' Succotash

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
This was GREAT!!! So simple! So tasty! I am NOT a big lima bean fan, but my husband is, so I tried this recipe for him. He loved it and so did I. I will gladly eat my lima beans from now on if they are prepared like this. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
This was GREAT! My family and I were so pleased with how this turned out! I added Worcestershire to the meat mix and substituted one tbs of brown gravy mix for 1 tbs of flour. I served this with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies and it was a huge hit- thanks for the great recipe!

Almond Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Wow- this was a nice treat- very different from the usual casserole. I did make a few changes- instead of mayonnaise I used one 8oz block of cream cheese and added 1/2 cup of milk. I also sauteed the onion, celery, and chicken in white wine and butter before mixing it in with the rice. I also added peas and carrots to the mix to give it some extra veggies. Had to use a 9x13 pan instead of 8x8- this was a lot of food! The whole family loved it- we will definitely make this again. Thanks!

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
Excellent- I was so happy with the way this turned out! I used 2 cans of tomato sauce, one can of diced tomatoes, 2 cans of beans (non-drained) and one additional can of beans (drained). Don't add the water- let the liquid from the beans and the tomatoes be the broth! I cooked this on the stove in a big pot in about an hour and a half- no problems. Also- wait to add the cabbage until you're about halfway done, and definitely add about a full head of cabbage. This was great and we will be enjoying this again- thanks!
