Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2003
I sided with the reviewers who chose to bake the chops raw in a casserole dish rather than browning first. I added the raw mushrooms and onions (in hindsight I recommend sauteeing the onions for a couple of minutes first). I also sprinkled some rosemary, suggested by another reviewer. Next time I may add a touch of sherry. My family rated this one a "keeper". Thanks for such an easy recipe- this one is great when you're busy on a Sunday night getting ready for the work and school week. I doubled the recipe so we could have leftovers.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2003
This was the first time I've made rice pudding. The only type of rice I had in the house was long grain. While the flavor of the pudding was excellent, next time I will use short or medium grain rice as the submitter mentioned in her introductory remarks. While I love the golden raisins and cinnamon, the kids (conditioned by Kozy Shack) asked me to leave it out next time.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
This was scrumptious and is destined to become a family favorite in my house. I would call it "restuarant quality". It is SO easy too. Instead of chopping whole tomatoes, I would either buy the type that are already diced, or do what I do: with very clean hands break up the tomatoes with your fingers right in the skillet. Stand away from the skillet because sometimes the tomatoes will squirt. My 13 year old daughter really liked it, but asked me to use less of the red pepper flakes in the future.

Mom's Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2003
The batter was quite dry- I had to add more milk. I was diappointed by this recipe- I sounded much better than it was. My daughter didn't like it either.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2003
I used fresh chicken breasts diced and sauteed because I've never used canned chicken and was skeptical. I added the other ingredients , along with taco seasoning as others suggested as used Mexican 4 cheese blend (Kraft) instead of cheddar. This was sensational and so simple and fast.

Kapusta

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2003
My husband's grandmoter is Polish and this tastes very similar to a dish she served years ago. This is scrumptious- my teenage daughter ate 3 servings! This recipe is not hard- a little time consuming perhaps. To make Sunday dinner easy, I served this with a ready to serve spiral ham, buttered noodles sprinkled with cracker crumbs and poppy seeds, and a chunky applesauce (storebought). Rye or pumpernickel bread would go well with this.

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2003
We enjoyed this prepared just as the recipe stated. Hubby suggested you could vary by spicing it up with , for example, Emeril's Bayou Blend. This was easy to prepare, and I will definately make again.

Chicken Riggies II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2003
In order to thicken the sauce, I found I had to cook this at a very rapid simmer. We enjoyed this and I think I would like it with shrimp even better. In that case I found make the sauce and then put in already cooked shrimp from the fish market in at the end.

Deb's Scallops Florentine

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2003
I don't think you need to boil the scallops first-I instead baked for about 20-25 minutes at 350 and they came out perfect. I used less Old Bay than called for- I think a tablespoon might make it too salty. Also, I don't think this takes 30 minutes prep time as the recipe says. I cooked the spinach in the micro while I made the sauce. It takes a minute or so to press the water from the spinach and then the recipe goes together quickly. I put the scallops directly in the pie plate instead of boiling. So prep time is less than 15 minutes. I would rather spend less prep time and a little more time in the oven so I can do some other things while it cooks. My husband , who is usually neutral on scallops really liked this, and I did too. Whenever I make scallops I'll use this recipe from now on.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2003
I added a little milk to these while mashing- otherwise I think it would be too dry. Nice, colorful and tasty change to plain mashed. Added nutrition from the carrots is a plus.

Ki See Ming

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
The only change I made was to use a little more soy sauce. My husband, never given to hyperbole, said on the first bite "This is pretty good". I guess his taste buds kicked in a little later and he had to contain himself from eating all of it!Our daughter came in from a late class and although she had already had dinner, she had some of this. I served it over rice. This was very easy and I really like these one pot meals that contain plenty of veggies as well as protein and some pasta. This one's a keeper.

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
Instead of cooking in water, I cook the carrots in orange juice- it gives a more orangy flavor, I think I added a little ginger with the brown sugar and butter. I've made these also with regular carrots- slicing the carrots in thirds on the diagonal. Have made these several times now- my whole family likes it.

Poppy Seed Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2003
I followed the suggestion to use onion dip instead of plain sour cream to add more flavor. I also added a little shredded cheese for flavor. While this was good, and my family ate it, I didn't get the rave reviews I expected based on some of the other reviews.

Simply the Easiest Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2003
Superb! I finally have a brisket recipe that produces a tender meat. Before this I could never understand why people enjoyed brisket. I used Heinekin beer, Heinz chili sauce and dark brown sugar. Followed the directions to the letter- loved the smell in the house all afternoon. Hubby even liked this and is not generally fond of brisket/pot roast meals.I served this with the roasted red potatoes on this site and the orange glazed carrots also on this site.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2003
Gotta love these easy, tasty recipes that use only a few ingredients. I used a little more cheese than called for, and mixed monterey jack with the cheddar. Other cheese combinations could include mozzarella. I also used Fred Imus (mild)salsa, which I think is the best. Even my teenage daughter said this was good and she says she doesn't generally like chicken.

Amber's Devils on Horseback

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2003
I found I did not need 2 tablespoons of lemon pepper- slightly over 1 tbsp gave enough kick. This is SO easy and fast to prepare. Also ,the fat content is neglible- a change from my other scallop recipes with butter and cream. My husband liked this- usually he finds scallops bland.

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2003
I don't think I did this recipe justice by using store bought meatballs (to save time). I'll try again using Lana's full recipe. I made this as a meal over rice- I followed the suggestion to double all ingredients, except for cornstarch (increase only by one TBSP). I also added some maraschino cherries for color as someone suggested. Both suggestions worked well..

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2003
This was a bit salty for my taste, but considering the ingredients, not surprising. The meat came out very tender, and this is so easy to prepare. I would make it again, however, I don't know how anyone gets 8 servings as stated in the recipe, unless they are very light eaters. Four servings seems more realistic with only one pound of meat and 1 can of soup.

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2003
There's an error in the baking time- the summary shows "four hours" while the text shows 3 hours. I don't think this recipe requires even 3 hours. A 1 1/2 pound tenderloin in my area comes in two pieces. I baked for 2 tenderloins (4 pieces, total weight 3.75 pounds) two hours total and it came out fully cooked and juicy. While I didn't make gravy from the cooking juices, I think it would be an excellent base and would be wonderful over mashed potatoes. This recipe is very easy- great when you are busy on a Sunday getting ready for the work week. Will definately make again.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2003
I have made this several times, and depending on what else is cooking in the oven, I've adjusted the cooking time for this recipe so that everything comes out at the same time. It always comes out great ,and is so easy. I spray my casserole dish with Pam first- clean up is not hard.
