Panzanella Panini

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
So glad I checked my email before lunch! This recipe came in the Daily Dish today, and I had all the ingredients on hand. In less than 10 minutes I was eating this delicious sandwich with fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden. Excellent proof that the best food is fresh and simple!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
This is my new favorite beef stew recipe! I did make a few changes like tossing the beef cubes with flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder before browning them. I omitted the onions and celery because my husband doesn't like them and added a couple more potatoes. I left everything else the same and the combination of seasonings was very good. The only thing I would do differently if I was only going to cook it as long as recommended is cut the amount of liquid. I cooked mine longer than 2 hours and still had to add more cornstarch and cook it without the lid for the last 20 minutes or so to get it to thicken up. I think 3 cups of liquid would have been plenty.

Breakfast Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
This was really good. Following some of the other reviewers suggestions, I made some substitutions for my husband's taste and quicker prep time: 2 potatoes - shredded, 5 lg eggs, 3 Tbs. milk, 8 Tbs Hormel real bacon bits, no onion or peppers, a little hot sauce mixed in the eggs. Baked it all in a greased 7x11 glass baking dish for 23 minutes, and it came out nice and neat when I flipped it.

Venison Pot Roast and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
This was great! I'd only eaten venison in chili and hamburgers so I was looking for a good first recipe to try for a roast we were given, and this was perfect. It makes a wonderful, thick gravy that also was delicious on the roasted potatoes I made as a side dish. I made the grill seasoning using the suggestion in rua's review, and it was great. I will be making this recipe again and also using it for beef. Thanks!

Quinoa Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This is a delicious breakfast for anyone who likes cream of wheat or oatmeal. The only subs I made were 1.5 c of skim milk + .5 c whole milk, honey instead of sugar, and no butter. It was really good topped with chopped pecans. Thanks!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
Very tasty! I usually make extra marinade and simmer it to serve over orzo. Sometimes I simmer the shrimp in the sauce instead of grilling. Delicious either way!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
Delicious! Everyone loved it! The only change I made was using a whole cup of tomato sauce and mashing the diced tomatoes some after the simmering b/c my husband and son don't like too many chunks.

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I have made this dish many times, and it is great! The breading is so good, and the chicken comes out moist.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Easy and so delicious! Thanks so much for the easy weeknight dinner! This makes the whole house smell wonderful while it cooks. 3 hours was a little long on high; 2.5 would have been better for my crock pot. I served the chicken over jasmine rice cooked with some olive oil and Italian herb blend. I spooned some of the sauce from the crock pot on top, and it was so good. The amount of sauce was just right for 3 breasts. Next time I may try doubling it and thickening it to a gravy.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
This is delicious and so easy to make! Made a few changes to lower the calories - used 8 oz. lowfat cottage cheese, light sour cream, and only used 1/2 the bread crumbs & butter for the topping. I also used whole wheat rotelle pasta. This tastes almost exactly like my family's favorite mac-n-cheese recipe but is much easier to make - thanks!

Cheese and Bacon Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
Brought this to a party, and it was a big hit. I just made a few changes. I sliced the potatoes about 1/4" and tossed them in a bowl with salt, pepper, and some garlic powder. Then I poured the melted butter over them and mixed them well. I also used real bacon bits instead of cooking bacon and crumbling it. I served these with a bowl of sour cream for dipping/topping, and they were gone in a flash! Thanks for an easy, tasty appetizer recipe that I'll be making often!

Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2004
This is the first breaded fish recipe I've tried that actually has lots of flavor. My whole family loved it - even my son who is not a big fish fan! I used tilapia and all parmesan since I didn't have any romano on hand. I will use a little less salt next time. 12 minutes baking time was perfect for the 1/2" to 3/4" filets, and the fish turned out moist. I served it over a basmati rice medley cooked in chicken broth and olive oil. I'll be making this for my in-laws next weekend!

How to Make Country Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2014
This is my first time reviewing a recipe I haven't tried yet, but I decided to give this one a 5 to offset the 1 star reviews of those who don't read the description of the recipe (or the title apparently) and decide to review it anyway. This country gravy is also very similar to the one I've always made with an addition I can't wait to try - bacon! The recipe I've been using for years is great so added bacon can only make it better! I usually make mine with hot Italian sausage because we're not huge fans of breakfast sausage, but I've made it with breakfast sausage sometimes, and it's good both ways. I leave out the onions because my husband can't stand them. ;-)

Venison Bacon Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
These burgers have great flavor. The only thing I substituted was a little onion powder for the shallots because I didn't have any on hand. It's too cold to cook outside so I cooked these in a cast iron skillet - 4 min per side, then finished them in a 425 degree oven for another 4 minutes to make sure the centers were done. It was a great meal with sweet potato fries and baked beans. Thanks!

Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2010
This was really good. I just made the chicken without the potatoes this time because I had leftover baked potatoes from the night before. I used all thighs, removed the skin, and layered the bacon on top of the thighs as other reviewers suggested. I sprinkled the seasoning blend over the top, and the chicken was juicy and the bacon crisp after 50 minutes. The juices were delicious with crusty dinner rolls. Can't wait to try it again with the potatoes!

Southern Style Thanksgiving Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Delicious! I made these for our son's graduation party and everyone loved them. I only cooked them for a couple of hours though or they would have been way too soft for our taste.

Quinoa Veggie Salad with Zesty Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
Very light and refreshing. This will become a regular at our house! I cut the quinoa to 3 cups, and I increased all the dressing ingredients by half except the oil because there was a lot of quinoa, and it would have been bland without the extra dressing. I used olive oil because we prefer its flavor, used grapes tomatoes cut in thirds, and added about 1 cup of chopped carrots. The only thing I would do different next time is to cut the quinoa to 2 cups.

Simple Ranchy Breaded Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
This dish was very tasty. The only thing I would do differently next time is use thinner filets. Mine were thick (closer to a steak than a filet), and the flavor was much better on the thinner pieces.
