Marvelous Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
That picture looks more like brownies than stuffed mushrooms but I didn't let that deter me. I fixed this exactly per the recipe, but due to lack of oven space I loaded them into one of my crock pots on low! They were to die for! I had no leftovers whatsoever! Permanent member in my recipe file! Thanks Cathy

Oriental Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
After 106 reviews I don't know what I could add. This was great. Fixed it for potstickers for Christmas Eve buffet & again for potstickers for NYE buffet. My family poured it over everything I fixed from potato skins to fried zucchini to chicken kabobs...they couldn't get enough of it! My only question is how do I reduce the salty taste? I used low sodium soy, but it was a tad bit too salty for me. Less soy, more hoisin? Whatever, this is a staple in my recipe file!

Easy Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I'm not sure Kahlua would have improved this. I made it for Christmas Day dessert. My kids (boys 16 & 19) actually fought over it! Forget the rare prime rib I fixed, this was their choice. How sad, I only got one serving before it disappeared. Thanks for the great recipe.

Cheese Fondue with a Twist

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
The taste was pretty good. The cheese combo is good. But the looks with the basalmic left something to be desired. I used too much corn starch as it thickened up way too much. Not the recipes fault. Gotta watch that! I think it might have been excellent without any cornstarch. And while the basalmic added flavor...it just didn't look right. Can't find white basalmic. Of course, making fondue once a year makes it hit or miss...miss this year...will keep this - interesting flavor, but will look for others. Cathy

Greek Pasta with Tomatoes and White Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Initially this sounded good...but then I read the so-called reviews. There were so many changes/additions/deletions I didn't know where to begin. Ladies, make the recipe as is. If you feel the need to change things & not just tweek...submit your own recipe. Otherwise just submit tweeks, not major changes! Sorry for the rant, but I get so tired of reading about a wonderful recipe only to find out it's only wonderful if you make the following major changes...

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I am about to make this for our Easter dinner. Really sounds good to me. And far better than that cardboard stuff from the box! I'll post later if it was a winner or not with my familiy. But I have a problem with Emily. Granted it was 3 years ago, but jeez, Emily. If you have a better recipe, JUST POST IT!!!! Don't trash another's recipe, just because you do it differently. Your's is a unique recipe, post it. Don't put down or "this is how I do it" type reply! Totally puts me off...if you're so good, post it. If not, shut up! Sorry, but I have a problem with folk who take an original recipe and say it's great EXCEPT...then submit a totally differently recipe. Sorry if I offended, JMHO! Will let you know how this turned out!!

Sweet and Spicy Green Beans

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
My family said never fix green beans any other way again! They loved this recipe. I doubled the sauce because I find most times it's necessary, not with this one! It was too much sauce, but still good. I also added a couple of splashes of seseme oil, which just added to the flavor. I served these with the Asian Lettuce Wraps, also on this site and had a very satisfying dinner...with no leftovers! Thanks for the new green bean recipe!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
Made these exactly like the recipe...whole family loved them! Even the pickled ginger, which took some time to find! I don't know if it's like PF Chang's or not, because we don't eat there, but these are wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Cheap and Yummy Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
This is not a 5 star recipe, but WOW. When I have no time to fix a gourmet meal for my family, this fits the menu. My DH and 2 DS's loved this quick,easy, delicious meal. Again, not something you would find in a 5 star restaurant, but it is quick and easy and yummy!

Baked Fresh Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
I made this with cherries from our local grocery store so I really don't know what kind they are. I made it per the instructions. My family thought it was fine, not to-die-for. They suggested I try another recipe. It was firm, which I loved. So there was no runny filling! But it just didn't have the ??? taste I was looking for! I don't think adding the extra sugar, vanilla extract, and almond extract would have made a difference. It was easy, it tasted OK, it just wasn't there for us.

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
I made this per the recipe, except I doubled the gravy. Hubby thought it was fine, 11 yr old thought it OK, but the 14 yr old, who inhales anything I place in front of him, thought it too salty and wouldn't eat it. I felt it was a little salty for my taste, but I ate it. I think it was the combination of the onion soup mix (which is salty to begin with) and the au jus mix (again salty. Don't think I'll be making this again.

Snake Alley Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I've made this for years...I got the recipe from a Kikkoman cook book. My family, including 2 picky kids, loves it to pieces. The kids even take the leftovers for lunch the next day! BUT you need to use about 1/2# spaghetti and double the sauce!
