Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2004
I have eaten brisket made this way since I was a little girl. The only thing my family did was add sliced mushrooms to the rest of the ingrediets. On Jewish holidays Mom would add a kishke to cook in the pot during the last hour or so. YUMMY! Your Cousin's legacy certainly lives on. Also just a note to you not familiar with brisket. Brisket and corned beef are not the same thing, although a corned beef is made out of a brisket of beef. Corned beef has been cured, or "pickled" before it is cooked - and has a very distinct taste all its own. The Guiness rcipe on this site is wonderful for corned beef. However the BRISKET called for here is just the plain cut of beef. I can't imagine what a horrible mess this recipe would be if you used a corned beef............

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2003
Wow Deb and thanks for the easiest dang chili recipe I ever made - and with all the ingredients already in the house! I used 1 lb. ground chuck and 1 lb. ground turkey and added 1 can of pinto beans to the mix. Made a mistake and used the whole pack of the chili seasoning mix, but it came out tasting great. I recommend using either fresh garlic or garlic powder because the taste to me is the best. The nicest thing was that you could spice the recipe up or down depending on the type of salsa you used. I just browned the meat and onions, and threw everything into the crockpot and forgot about it for 8 hours on low. Came home to yummy smells from the kitchen. Next time I will add green and read bell pepper. Chili cheese fries? You all are killing me! LOL -------------------------------------------------------- I originally wrote this review over 7 years ago, and It is still my go to chili recipe because it is so adaptable. Chili season is approaching and I can't wait to make it again. I wish I could give this 10 stars as it is that good........ BTW, I did have to indulge in those chili cheese fries and they were heavenly - as were the chili dogs and chiliburgers, and mexican omletes. LOL Debzdoo, you are my chili queen!

Feta Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 29, 2003
YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY! Who knew usually dry turkey burgers could taste so good? Made the recipe for Memorial Day cookout and everyone raved. Here are some tips for serving. I used fresh spinach leaves, sliced onion and roasted red pepper as a base for the burger in the pita - and topped it all off with a spoon of cucumber sauce. There are now brands of feta that have olives, sun-dried tomato, and basil already incorporated into the cheese - and this makes a wonderful alternative to plain feta. Also, if turkey burgers are a bit dry, use half to 3/4 the amount of turkey and supplement with lean ground beef. This does help make it a bit more juicy. This recipe is definitely a keeper! THANKS, LOl!

Mediterranean Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2004
Looking for a new way to make salmon, and this one turned out well. I omitted cilantro because I do not like it, but added a bit of rosemary and thyme in its place. Friend suggested adding a bit of diced tomato and chopped ripe olives to mixture - which I will do the next time I make this. Served with rice pilaf and steamed spinach for a quick and easy "healthy" dinner. Thanks, Ariel101.

Authentic Thousand Island Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2004
I must concur with all the other reviewers. This dressing is wonderful! I used to love 1000 Islnd, but found that over the years the ready made stuff has bvecome too sweet or cloyingly sour. And what is up with the color. So when I ran out of all other dressings at home and saw I had all of the ingtreds to make this, I decided to see how it came out. Well, I really love this! Mine came out slightly pinkish - from the red peppers I guess, The taste is perfect, and even before I had the salad made I was dipping veggies into it. Only additions were salt. a smidge onion powder (1 tsp.) and black pepper. Thanks, Local 1000 Islander!

Grilled Portobello and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2003
This is such a great recipe! I make what I like to call Portobello Pizza "Burgers" from this. I substitute pizza sauce for the marinara, and place each grilled mushroom filled with the mozzarella and pepper mixture in a foil packet back over the grill for a few minutes until all is melted stem side up inside. I then serve each mushroom on either foccacia bread or Italian roll. I also offer a store bought gardinera relish. This has been a definite hit with young and old - and a "sneeky" way to get kids to eat something besides a regular burger at a cookout. This is a defintie keeper! Thanks, Valerie!

Sesame Udon Noodles

Reviewed: May 30, 2004
YUM! I used peapods instead of snap peas (bought the wrong ones) ,added about 1/3 of a large cucumber cut into thin matchstick pieces and some shredded carrot. Guess you could really use any vegetables that you would put into a stirfry. Next time I will add some leftover chicken or shrimp. Thanks for the recipe, Baja!

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
My father made the world's best pumpkin pie! Our family would salivate at the thought of a big piece at the end of our holiday meal. We all came to find out after he died that all he did was used the Libby "Famous Pumpkin Pie" recipe - with his special touch....... a dash of vanilla. He told people it was an old family recipe he could never divulge. Dad was quite the character, and dearly missed. But somehow when I now make this recipe I feel him standing there with me. Thank you Libby for that oh-so-special memory!

Bachelor's Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2004
WOW, this recipe is great. I was looking for a way to use up some canned pumpkin and thought soup would be an unusual choice. Saw this recipe and thought that it was quick and easy - so I decided to use it. Mind you, I have only had pumpkin soup once and it was from some gourmet recipe that required fresh pumpkin and a long list of ingredients. This simple recipe was much better than that one. I made it exactly as called for and found that it was a wee bit bland, although I could definitely taste the pumkin and only used enough water to get it to the right consistancy. So as several reviewers suggested, I spiced it up. I added onion 1 tsp onion powder, 1 Tbs. sugar, 1 Tbs. curry powder - and 2 tsp of a Morrocan spice blend (cumin, paprika, cinnamon, corriander, ginger) I had left over from another recipe. YUM! This was total perfection! Now we like things savory, so that you may want to adjust the amounts, but this is delicious and definitely a keeper. My cream of potato soup (Campbells) had chunks of potatoes, so I purred it with a stick blender before serving. Thanks, Katherine, for the wonderfully easy recipe. There is a bit left over - and it is MINE.

Balsamic Bleu Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy! This salad is great and has so many possibilities. I have made it with grilled chicken and grilled steak sliced thinly - and both were sensational! Another option is shrimp or crab. Once I was out of bleu cheese and I used feta and it was equally as good. I will make this again and again! 5 big stars.

Yakitori Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2003
This is excellent! I made it just as the recipe said, but cooked it on a grill instead of under the broiler. Came out just great! Served with Peanut Noodles from this site and had a great meal. This definitely is a family favorite. Thanks Dakota!

Chicken Curry Croissants

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
Hey Cookin' Cowgirls! This is a delicious sandwich - just like the one they prepare at the gourmet sandwich shop down the block. You can really make it your own depending on what kind of chutney you use (I like peach or mango), and how hot you want it. Good tip of toasting the curry powder before adding he oil to saute the chicken breast. Makes the flavor even better. All I did was add maybe a clove of minced garlic - but otherwise it was good without any tampering. Now I don't have to spend the big bucks for this sandwich down the street......... LOL

Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2004
Yum! Yum! Yum! This is a great burger - turkey or otherwise. Only change I made was to use worchestershire sauce instead of soy and added a bit more cheese to the mixture. Served on toasted buns with tomato slices and additional bleu cheese dressing for those who wanted more. Have also varied the recipe by adding herbed feta cheese instead of bleu and serving in a pita with cucumber sauce. Thanks so much for the recipe, Trish, It is a big favorite at our house!

Veggie Ranch Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2004
Wow! This is great pizza! Never would have thought it with the ranch dressing. Have made this twice......first time I followed the recipe exactly but used a garlic ranch dressing as sauce. Great! The garlic added a nice flavor. The second time I used Ragu light alfredo sauce as a base cause I was craving the pizza and was out of ranch dressing. This was equally as great! Big hit at my house. Love all the cheese too! Thanks, Darlene - this is definitely a favorite.

Texas Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2003
Although this recipe is in the Appetizer category, I serve mine as a main course for 4 with the original recipe. Easy way to have dinner on the table in minutes. Round it out with a green or avocado salad. Perhaps flan for dessert? MMMMMMMMMMM Thanks, Michelle

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
This recipe is perfect as is for excellent appetizers. My family has been making these exactly this way for many years to great reviews. Nowadays if we have time we make the meatballs - if not we use the frozen variety. No one really knows or cares. And these are not just for appetizers anymore. We also love these with mashed potatoes and boiled cabbage on the side. Thanks, Tammy for a great recipe!

Mexican Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2003
Very quick and easy recipe - nothing gourmet, but very tasty too. I too was looking for a recipe for dinner that would have the things I had in the house already (its getting cold in the Midwest and I was not in a mood to shop), and this fit the bill perfectly. The only change I made was not to ad the green chilies - only because my salsa and Nacho cheese dip were spicy enough (and I didn't have them in the house.) Will definitely make again......... Thanks Pat for the recipe!

Leah's Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
Leah, this soup brings back many wonderful memories of family and holiday gatherings. It is very similar to my mother's except for the Dill - which adds a nice touch. I will be making this for the Holidays tonight with both noodles and matzah balls added, as is our family tradition. Thank you again for such a great recipe.
