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.

Dilly Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
I've been looking for a recipe just like this for years- a similar one was served, in the dining halls of my college over 30 years ago. Thank you!

Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
I had no problem with "tough" meat as some reviewers did. I used center cut boneless chops and only browned the outside lightly. There's no need to cook in the skillet a long time because there is long oven cooking time and the paprika will supply color. We really enjoyed this recipe; I especially liked the simple ingredients and low cost. I would use less salt though , as the canned chicken broth has a good amount of salt. salt. I served this on an unseasonably cool summer evening with corn on the cob from a local farm. Will make again in fall and winter.

Greek Pasta Salad with Roasted Vegetables and Feta

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
Fabulous. I needed to bake the vegetables longer to brown and somewhat carmelize them. I doubled the feta (personal preference); used dried basil as there was none in the 3 stores I visited. My family loves this.

Jalapeno Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
My teenage daughter made these and they were awesome, even though she forgot to use the entire amount of sour cream (she used half). She made a couple of changes: she added some taco seasoning to the mix and used more tomato sauce. A word of warning about jalapenos: she used all the seeds and the white membrane, so it was very hot! Scrape these out for a milder dish.Will be a regular dish at our house.

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
My family loved these. I followed the tip to pat the roasted peppers with a paper towel. There's no need to prebake the crust, in my opinion. The recipe says can be served at room temp, but these are best served warm.

Allie's Mushroom Pizza

Reviewed: May 17, 2004
This was excellent , even without the sesame oil, which I forgot to buy. Next time I'll try with that. I started with raw dough and guessed on the "prebaking" . I think I would bake at 375 or maybe 400 rather than 350.

Herbed Pork and Apples

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2004
I made this just as written and I thought it was excellent; the pork was juicy and flavorful. I did not find the sauce as sweet as some others said. I wonder if they used real maple syrup- the real stuff isn't terribly sweet; the apple juice I used did not have sugar added. I felt the sauce and tart apples/ onions were a perfect accompaniment to the pork.

Buffalo Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
Terrific! This is a must have recipe for those on a low carb diet ( and for everyone else who loves buffalo chicken) I found I had to cook longer than 5 minutes (about 15) to brown the chicken in the final step, but that could be my oven. The chicken was still moist though. I also used sliced provolone rather than shredded. This is very easy ,takes few ingredients, and has great flavor. My family really liked it and I will be making again soon.

Bacon Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
I used baby spinach and another Kraft dressing similar to Catalina except it also has poppy seeds. I don't care for hard boiled eggs, so I added clementine slices instead(cut in half)because I had them on hand. Mandarin oranges would also work. My family loved this- my daughter tasted it before dinner and asked me to double the quantity. She was right- it disappeared.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mandarin Chicken Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2003
I thought this was unique and creative. My husband liked this, even though the idea of a sandwich for dinner is abhorrent to him (his mother always cooked huge, multi-course meals three times a day)

Chicken Stuffed Buns

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2003
I couldn't find 6 buns, so I bought 3 large bread boules (there was only one sour dough boule, and the other two were marble). There are 3 of us, and as this was so filling we made 2 meals out of it. We thought it this was very tasty (including our 13 year old) and a twist on usual dinner entres. Will definately make again.

Grilled Pizza Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2003
These are great and so easy. I also experimented with various fillings- leftover meat balls, and mushrooms. I even used shrimp as I had some on hand. The whole family enjoys these.

Veal Forestiere

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
Excellent- restaurant quality. I did not have marsala, but used a semi-sweet white table wine. I also could not find crimini mushrooms, so I just used the regular mushrooms.I usually find that liquid reduces more quickly than recipes usually state - in the case of this recipe I just added more stock and wine. I served this with pumpkin risotto.
