Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
Very good base recipe. I sauteed mushrooms, garlic and shallots in olive oil and butter. I added some Worcestershire sauce to the the mixture and brushed with butter and topped with just a bit of panko bread crumbs for crunch. Also the mixture was enough for 22 large stuffing mushrooms. TFS!

Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
This recipe is delicious. I only made a couple very minor changes. I diced up two jalapenos and added them to the onion mixture and added fresh ground pepper. I used brown rice and large shrimp because that's what I had. And I garnished with some fresh flat leaf parsley. **one more thing, the chicken was a bit dry. I think next time, I'd poach it in some chicken stock and throw it in at the end. Make sureyou taste before you add any salt. All the pork products, especially the bacon make it plenty salty...and I love salt. ;)

Eileen's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
This was really good. I used half ground beef and half Jimmy Dean sausage. I also used asiago instead of parm, since that's what I had in the house. It was delicious, and I'm not even a meatloaf lover.

German Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I hate that you have to pay to customize these recipes. Be forewarned, I did change a few things. I halved the recipe and used an 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper. I only used 5 oz of chopped pecans and used a 1/3 cup of coconut. I toasted them for about 5 minutes in the toaster oven. I brought the syrup to 234 degrees (not necessarily 6 mins) and added the syrup to the chocolate and marshmallow and mixed well with a spoon. Then I moved the thermometer to the fudge letting the temp drop to 130 degrees. I mixed the fudge in my KA mixer until the shine is gone, about 3-4 minutes. Then I quickly mixed in the nuts. With the changes, I'd give the recipe 5 stars, but the first time I made it, I cooked only for the 6 minutes and it was a grainy mess.

Cream of Tomato Soup with Pesto

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
I don't even like tomato soup, but I decided to give this a try for the family. It was delicious. I followed the recipe almost exactly. I added a bit more pesto and used zesty seasoned salt to taste instead of salt and pepper. Thanks for sharing. This will be a staple from now on.

Cajun Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I really wanted to like this. I thought it was just ok. I only did the second puree using my immersion blender. If I made it again, I would use more black beans and I would add the corn after the puree. The taste of "corn skins" is not pleasant. Also I preferred this with some cheese and sour cream.

Italian Vegetable Soup with Beans, Spinach & Pesto

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
This was good, but I made some changes. I used turkey broth instead of chicken and escarole instead of spinach just because I had them in the freezer. I also used a mix of red and yellow pepper and omitted the peas. I used a can of pinto and cannellini beans. I found the soup to be a bit bland so I added some dried basil and some red pepper flakes in addition to the salt and pepper. I added a couple of cups of cooked orzo and a sprinkling of grated asiago. I also served it with a side of garlic bread. TFS ETA-Make sure you double or even triple the broth if you are going to add cooked orzo. It will use up all the liquid

Leek Potato Mushroom Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
I've never been a fan of potato soup, but this recipe came out really well. I made some minor changes. I used half and half instead of milk and dijon mustard instead of ground. Also, I always use asiago instead of parm. And I left out the mushrooms, just because I didn't have any on hand. The soup comes out pretty salty with the broth and the cheese and celery salt, so next time I think I will use low salt broth. Additional salt is not necessary at all, and I like salt. ;) **I made this again, this time with the mushrooms. They really add a nice touch. Also, I chopped up some turkey bacon and sauteed with the leeks and potatoes.**

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
This soup was delicious! I made two minor changes. I used red potatoes instead of russets and I cut them smaller. I didn't have any allspice, so I used some jerk seasoning. This soup may be "spiced", but it's certainly not spicy. It just leaves a hint of heat behind. I'll probably add a bit more cayenne next time. Thanks for sharing!!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
This was so good and I haven't even let it set yet. I used black beans and pinto instead of the black-eyed peas. I also used fresh salad dressing jalapenos and tomatoes. I added fresh garlic, lots of cumin and cilantro. Oh, and red onion works great. In the end I drained off about a 1/2 cup of extra liquid. TFS.

Grilled Salmon Kyoto

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
This was the BEST salmon I have ever eaten. It was so incredibly moist. I made some very minor changes. I used salmon filet instead of steaks and grilled it on the Foreman for 5 mins. I used low sodium soy sauce, fresh orange juice (doubled)and sesame oil instead of veggie. Thanks so much for sharing!!!!!

Salsa II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
This recipe is very good. I didn't change much. I only used vidalia onions and I upped the cumin to suit my own tastes. I also used lime instead of lemon because I like the lemon in my guacamole instead. TFS!!

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
I love this recipe. I used shallots instead of green onions. It gave the recipe a lot more depth. I could eat a whole loaf of bread with this sauce. TFS!!!

Easy Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
This recipe was pretty good. I added some garlic salt to the bread crumbs. It still seemed to be lacking something. The cook time seemed to be off too. I followed the cook times as directed and the eggplant was still pretty hard.

Tilapia with Creamy Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
One of the best recipes I have tried. I used sole instead of tilapia. I'm sure any light fish would be great. The only changes I made and I thought it made a huge difference, was change the lemon to 2 tsp and I sauteed some shallots and used them in the sauce. TFS. I can't wait to make it again.

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
Yummy!! My whole family loved this soup. I omitted the shrimp because I didn't have any. I also followed another reviewers tip and precooked the wontons. Don't do that. The pork was a bit dry and the wontons too mushy. It would have been perfect had I not done that. I did add extra soy sauce and some sesame oil to the soup. It was great. TFS!!
