Lemon Mushroom Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2004
Didn't have any capers, but substituted with fresh mushrooms lightly sauted in the chicken butter. Also, skipped the wine. But, this was delicious. A great cold night comfort food. (Makes lots of delicious gravy).

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2004
Have made this several times now. It's a family favorite. I do think there is a misprint in the recipe. Probably should read 2(14 oz) cans diced tomatoes, which equals 28 oz. total. This is plenty. I always skip the wine, but it's still delicious without.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2004
Very good. Added a whole packet of Ranch dressing. About 2 cups of any fresh veggies will work, but make it colorful. Before chilling, I slightly pushed the veggies into the cream cheese mixture with the back of a flat spatula to hold it into place. Will definitly make again.

Baked Soy Lemon Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2004
This is one of the best marinades. We use low sodium or lite soy sauce as the salty taste could be overpowering. This is not only great on pork but it's also fantastic as a chicken marinade. We're trying beef next. YUM!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: May 3, 2004
Wonderful! Although the recipe looks a bit laborious, it was surprisingly easy to throw together. First time using the dry packaged sun-dried tomatoes - delicious. Made a few minor changes to the recipe...Substituted olive oil for the butter and vegetable oil, used extra garlic, used garlic salt instead of plain salt to season the chicken, added a small can of portabella mushrooms (drained), cubed the chicken and added to the cream sauce after cooking, and served over angel hair pasta. A company-worthy recipe.

Pork Chops a la Slow Cooker

Reviewed: May 6, 2004
I think many of the people who had unfavorable remarks are using the wrong soup. The recipe does not call for a "cream" soup. The chicken w/rice is more of a condensed broth. If you don't like rice, substitute a double dose of Herb-Ox or chicken bouillon cubes in water. I used thick chops in a double dose of Herb-Ox and added a squirt of prepared mustard. It was delicious and not dry at all.

Cheese and Bacon Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
Delicious! -and so easy. To make it even easier, I sliced the potatoes into a bowl, tossed with the melted butter and seasonings. I skipped the regular salt and onions, and seasoned with onion salt and onion powder. Before adding toppings, push the potatoes together (don't have to worry so much about aiming for each potato). I also used Oscar Meyer real bacon bits.

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2006
Found this recipe here 2 yrs ago - love it and am updating my review because we now just make the gravy and serve with grilled pork roast, steak, chicken, baked potatoes, steamed vegys, bread dipping... Heat the heavy cream, pepper and garlic powder in a saucepan. Stir constantly. Add 4 oz. (double) blue cheese and stir constantly until until thickened (about 5 min). Had company recently and made this and brown gravy for a pork roast because most of them said they didn't like blue cheese. The brown gravy didn't get touched. Luckily, I had doubled the blue cheese gravy. It was a hit!

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
Was looking forward to these chops because of the ratings. And, as others suggested, I halved the olive oil and doubled the remaining ingredients -used 5 chops. Made way too much sauce. Cooked on low for about 11 hours (because work day). Pork was very tender, but we didn't care for the flavor. Sorry, but won't be making these again.

New Orleans Barbequed Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
I wouldn't have tried this except for the good ratings. I followed the recipe exactly as stated, except used 2 lbs. shrimp and marinated 1/2 hour before cooking. Didn't double the sauce but there was still lots for bread dipping (as others suggested). Surprisingly, the ingredients work well together and I'll definitely make again. But, as a personal preference next time I'll add some extra garlic. Hubby likes Old Bay on shrimp, so he sprinkled on at the table.

Hot Sweet Onion Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Smelled good while baking, but my husband and I couldn't get past the grease. I drained off what I could, but it still overwhelmed the dip, both visually and taste. Luckly, I tried this before a girls happy hour at my house this coming week. Might try again with fat-free mayo and low fat swiss cheese...but not for girls night.

Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
I thought this was delicious. Husband thought it was okay. Thus the 4 stars. Followed the recipe, except substituted one can diced tomatoes for the fresh, added a small can of drained mushrooms, and simmered on the stove for about 40-45 minutes - so the flavors infused. It was easy to fix and much better than I expected.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly, except baked longer, as others suggested. We thought these were bland and dry.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
My husband is a grill king, so we were a bit afraid of ruining good filets...not to mention, he doesn't care for rosemary. Well, we thought we'd give it a try and followed the recipe exactly. The only thing we'll change next time is to marinate the filets longer and add more toppings. This was delicious! TIP: After filets are cooked, put them on baking tray before adding toppings so you don't loose the toppings.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
Better than frozen store bought, but not as good as the "mall's". Not sure where "buttery" comes in. We "played" with a couple pretzels...skipped the salt on top and added a little cinnamon and sugar to the dough before rolling and made a cinnamon/powdered sugar dip. Definitely a "kid fun" recipe that can be tweaked for taste.

Shrimp Francesca

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
Expected to like/love this based on the reviews. I followed the recipe except substituted canned mushrooms for the artichokes, but that wasn't the problem. I thought it called for too much garlic, but we barely tasted it (we love garlic). It has too much lemon juice and way too much bread crumbs for our taste. Probably won't make this again.

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Don't Give Up! It seemed I was doing something wrong. The loaves didn't rise much and even though I floured the top when letting them "rise", they stuck to everything I covered them with. Because I kept checking on them and changing the covering (plastic wrap, wax paper, finally damp towel worked best), I let it sit for an extra 20-30 minutes, then baked even though they seemed to be "stuck" to the floured non-stick baking sheet. It turned out delicious with a perfect texture and came right off the sheet. So my advice, don't give up on it, no matter...!!

Simple Time Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Easy quick meal to fix. Cut the spices in half, but otherwise followed recipe. Very good and would make again. (I didn't use pepper because it's not in the ingredient list, but noticed in directions after I had it in the oven, suppose you can add at table, if you like)

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Although I think this recipe would be awesome as is, some minor tweaks ensured I'll never buy prepared beef gravy again. I cut back the water to 1-1/4 cup, cut the onion back to about 1/4 of a large onion and stirred in 1/3 cup of sour cream after thickening. Served with pot roast and vegy's. Delicious and very quick and easy!
