Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
This is GREAT and my 1st attempt at making cabbage rolls!!! My boyfriend had to have them the next night as leftovers and he NEVER wants the same thing 2 nights in a row!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe which completely filled a 13x9 Pyrex dish, topped with sauce and baked for about 2hrs at 350 covered with foil so I wouldn't have to worry about the rolls breaking apart in the pot. PERFECT!

Fast Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
Top of the food chain! Boyfriend said this was the best Chicken Divan I've ever made (I used a different recipe about 6 times)! My changes include only 1 can of crm of Chicken soup, Olive Oil Mayo mixed with a cup or "can full" of chicken broth reserved from boiling the chicken tenders. This gave is a much richer and chunkier texture. I omitted the lemon juice (im allergic) and cheese but mixed the butter and bread crumbs together in microwave for about 15 seconds then topped the casserole. Absolutely Fabulicious!!

PHILADELPHIA Summer Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
This is an interesting combination. I used 3T red-wine vinegar instead of dressing, half of the container of Savory Garlic flavor, because my grocery store didn't have low fat or cheese&herb version (I don't care for cheesy flavors anyway), and halved the recipe because I didn't want to waste the vegies if I didn't like it. I think by adding 1c of broccoli florets it would tame the thickness and richness of the cooking creme. I agree with the other review that it needs more of something to cut the overwhelming taste of the cooking creme. According to my boyfriend, keep making "my" original potato salad, don't mess with a good thing.

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
These were super easy and complimentary to a simple pasta sauce. I LOVE that these are baked instead of fried! I preferred to bake the balls longer and at a higher temperature to get the desired crispiness. I raised to 450 after 15min and baked another 10 minutes. Next time, and there WILL be a "next time", I will make my balls flatter and shaped like patties. This allows for a dish that strongly resembles a VERY EASY eggplant parmesan and cuts out several steps. Served over wheat penne topped with homemade sauce and Parmesan. Great meatless meal and very filling. Thanks for this uncomplicated easy recipe for eggplant!

Easy Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: May 31, 2012

Crispy Chinese Noodles (Restaurant Style)

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
Exactly like the crispy noodles you get at the restaurants! You must be careful not to cook them too long, these noodles brown very fast and must be watched continuously. The perfect addition to soups or salads!

Simple Sassy Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
OMGoodness this was a HUGE hit! A friend was "home alone" and we decided to prepare dinner to cook at his house. We invited another friend who is very leery of seafood and "didn't like salmon", He said this was the best salmon he's ever had and LOVED IT!! Of course all of us loved it, not a flake was left, according to all-PERFECT! I stumped my toe on ingredients due to large pieces of fish and wanted to have plenty for basting, I didn't flip the fillets, just let them cook, skin side down, in a coated Pyrex dish. We've already decided to get more salmon to have this again SOON!!

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
Wonderful and full of flavor! I added 1 sprig of chopped fresh rosemary which brought out the essence of oregano and basil. I also added about 1/3lb of browned, lite, pork sausage to the middle layer, which made it a little heartier. Because I made a large (9x13) PYREX casserole I also used 2 yellow squash mixed with the 2 zucchini in the layers. This is fabulous and I WILL be making it again soon!!!

Stuffed Mexican Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
I was out of taco seasoning so I used ground cumino, extra garlic powder, chili powder, and 1/2 chipped onion, mixed into the ground sirloin. These are fabulous! I didn't have to pre-steam or blanch the peppers and they came out marvelous, full of flavor! My boyfriend raved about them and wouldn't let me share with friends, saying to "stop giving MY left-overs away".

Best Ever Cilantro Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
Wonderful recipe for leftover corn on the cob! I always have cilantro, onion, and tomatoes. I served this for 3 days straight, 1st as appetizer, 2nd afternoon as snack, then to finish it up-as a side dish with Mexican stuffed Peppers (another recipe on this site) with tortilla chips, the perfect compliment to a spicy dish. Cool and refreshing on these hot summer nights!

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
These were alright. I was a little disappointed because the reviews said they taste so authentic, but not similar to the ones I have at our favorite, local, Chinese restaurant. There was something missing and I will try to find the ingredient that makes the difference. Satisfying but not extraordinary.

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
This was an easy recipe with lots of flavor, but since I modified it to have bar-b-q sauce instead of ketchup, it changed the dynamic enough to not be fantastic. I marinated the boneless chops for about 2 hours before baking. I will try this again but use it exactly as written to see if that makes a difference. They were very tender and the boyfriend ate every last bite, however he didn't say I had to make this again (usually his way to say its wonderful).

Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
Loved it! I omitted the lemon juice (I'm allergic) and added extra vinegar...the trick IS cooking the marinade/sauce! Since the breasts were huge skin-on, bone-in breasts I cooked them a little longer for tenderness. I LOVE the flavor of the little crisped onions with the sweet and tangy sauce, this is going in my recipe box and WILL be used again.

Sweet Sausage 'n' Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
OMGoodness this is GREAT!!! Wonderful flavor and perfectly tangy. I browned the sausage first, then sliced into 1/4 inch, i drained most of the juice off of the canned baked beans, and added 1/4 cup of wine vinegar, 1/4 cup ketchup, 1/3 cup brown sugar, bout T of brown mustard with 2 sliced carrots. No lima beans or green beans (we were out) Boyfriend says he wants this again or ALL the time.

That Addicting Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
UNBELIEVABLE!!! My man-friend said this was THE BEST salad he's ever had! he actually wanted to have his ice cream as his appetizer and finish off with the salad...so easy and just perfect for the homemade spaghetti with Italian sausage and garlic bread. I'm glad I purchased extra parmesan so we can have this again later in the week!

Greek Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2012
Very flavorful, juicy and tender! I did like so many others recommended and used Cavenders Greek Seasoning because I keep it on hand, it is the perfect all around spice combination. I added extra garlic because we love it, and this was a wonderful dish! Just the right thing for my "meat & potatoes" kind of guy...Thanks reviewers for the hints!
