Cara's Creamy Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
OK it's not even done cooking and I'm already giving it five stars - of course I added some things to it to make it extra yummy but this would have been good as written. I did omit the eggs because I didn't think they were needed and added a lot of extra calories. I added some hot italian sausage to ground beef to make 1.5lbs, more than enough for a 12 oz box of pasta. I also omitted the garlic salt and added a total of 5tsp garlic instead. I also added three large handfuls of baby spinach torn up into pieces a little, and about 1/4c parmesan to the mix. It was so yummy I'm lucky it made it to the shells at all! Even my 3 yr old thought it was yummy as is. I had enough for two batches so I put one in the freezer and it should be great there! Thanks for a great jumping off point - it made a special meal I am looking forward to serving to guests!!

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
Really fast and yummy, and easy to make with items I have on hand. My son absolutely devoured it, saying he really like the "pasta with bacon and cheese". The wine definitely makes the flavor of the dish pop, so it's not optional for me!! I will say that I cut the recipe in half and two eggs were just a little too rich for me. I will probably make it again with half the eggs and a generous splash of cream (or evap milk since I always have some in the pantry). Otherwise I would have given it a healthy 5 stars!!

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
Um. Don't know where to begin. This soup wasn't good. It tasted like canned chicken noodle soup, and that's not a compliment. I prefer stock or broth, and even canned/boxed is better than boullion cubes!! I also cannot believe the butter (why on earth butter I don't know). Anyway, I was looking for a quick recipe for hubby to make and this was NOT it. not good!!

Feta and Olive Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2005
everyone that eats these loves them. I have used lamb, beef, turkey, and combinations of the above as I have them on hand. All were good. I also used the same recipe to make hamburgers that were to die for, a little lemon-garlic-mayo sauce on top with some sliced onion and lettuce and it's really good. I also second the use of kalamata olives instead of green. Great recipe all around.

My Sister's Favorite Potato Salad...Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
too much dressing for the amount of potatoes. i also added more traditional potato salad stuff like eggs, onion, celery, pickle relish. Otherwise it was very good, very dilly.

Big M's Spicy Lime Grilled Prawns

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2005
These were a huge hit at our last cookout - and I'm about to cook them again. Great flavor with the heat from the chiles and the sweet heat of the ginger. Excellent!

Old Bay® All American Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2005
I needed a good sauce for some ribs we're cooking tonight. I made a single batch and liked it enough to triple it for dinner tonight. I did add 1 tsp lemon juice to add a little tang to a pretty sweet sauce. I also recommend heating the sauce prior to eating to dissolve the sugar. A yummy, sweet sauce with just a little heat. Thanks!
