Wilted Cabbage Salad with Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
For what this is, I gave it five stars. It's not something you'll see everywhere, and it's easy (if you use a processor for shredding the cabbage) and surprisingly delicious. We ate this with fresh grilled brats, pickled eggs, beer, and German potato pancakes (from this site). Since the bacon is crumbled, I used bacon end pieces, which are considerably cheaper than regular bacon. I also used white wine vinegar because that's what I had. With the high fat content of everything on the menu, smaller portions came naturally, were enjoyed and satisfying. For something unusual for your guests, this one is a winner!

Creamy Italian Dressing II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I followed the directions exactly and was so happy with the result! Just plain DELICIOUS. Served it at a dinner party where everyone kept asking me what brand of dressing it was, and then just stared at me when I said I made it. Seems people don't make salad dressing anymore, ha-ha!

Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
The brand of enchilada sauce and tortillas has everything to do with how this turns out. I used a larger sized can of Las Palmas mild enchilada sauce and the thick Mission corn tortillas. I heated some of the sauce to dip the tortillas in until they were soft enough to roll. After filling the pan, I added the remaining the sauce to the top. Because this particular sauce is plenty spicy for me, I used colby-jack cheese and placed most of it on top of the sauce, then sprinkled sliced black olives over that. It ended up making 13 very filling enchiladas, enough for dinner and lunches. My husband said they were excellent...about 10 times!!

My Thai Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
My husband and I loved this. Followed all except the hoisin sauce, which I cannot eat. I added a little more sugar to make up the difference. We used romaine lettuce and the peanut sauce II recipe from this site. Will definitely go back to this for an easy, delicious and healthy dinner. Thanks gztg44!!

Peanut Sauce II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
Delicious. I used sugar instead of honey and chunky peanut butter - because that's all I had. Ate it on Thai Chicken Wraps.

I had no tomatoes and so used basil spaghetti sauce, and melted the cheese into it. VERY good.

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Just AMAZING, incredibly delicious. I could nearly eat it with a spoon. Okay, this is not the most rich chocolate flavored sauce you'll find. It's more a cross between chocolate and caramel...a lighter chocolate. But, who cares! It is easy and delicious and NO CORN SYRUP. Hooray for all that goodness!!! Thanks Lisa for this amazing recipe. You've added that much joy to my life!

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
I tried it as written and it was too much onion for me (depends on how large your onion is). I also added more vinegar. Nice salad that we will try again. Next time I will use half of a small sweet onion and twice the basil.

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
I sliced them about the size of standard French fries, lightly coated with olive oil, some cinnamon and pepper. Baked 30 minutes, turning once. Salted when done cooking. The only thing holding me back from eating all of it myself is the amount. VERY filling, delicious and satisfying.

Orange Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
I used all-fruit orange marmalade, and added coconut milk to cut the sweetness. Cut up the chicken and cooked it all in a skillet. Removed the chicken when done, reduced the sauce, added the chicken back in.

Chicken Zingarella Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
Okay, I made a mistake and used PICKLED sweet peppers (the kind with vinegar but no sugar added) and I have to say it was AMAZING, quite possibly the best tasting sauce I've ever eaten. The flavor will be largely affected by your choice of spaghetti sauce so choose a high quality one. Other than that, I added salt and lots of freshly ground pepper.

World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
I made this nearly as directed, only with half the sugar. Served it at last year's Holiday party and it was a huge hit. Everyone said it was the best potato salad they'd eaten and several people took some home with them. Thank you Kaye Lynn for such a great recipe. Definitely one I'll go back to over and over again!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2007
HUGE SUCCESS – it’s so nice when a recipe works as easily as this. I followed the directions exactly, using JUMBO shrimp, which fit 3 to a bamboo skewer (be sure to soak the skewers in water first so they don’t catch fire). At $20 a pound, I prayed the shrimp would turn out okay… but these are easily the BEST shrimp I’ve ever eaten and I’ve traveled the world! Absolutely, use only FRESH basil. Toss everything into a large ziplock bag, squeeze out excess air; put in refrigerator. I think I marinated it for a couple of hours. Really excellent – all of my guests gave this RAVE REVIEWS! Was served at a birthday dinner with Crustless Spinach Quiche by Susan and Grilled Portobello Mushrooms by Michael (also from this site and 5*****).

Kim's Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
This is such a fun change from lettuce salads. I served it to guests who at first didn't know what to make of it...peas and corn? For this reason, I'd suggest making the servings small, like in a lettuce cup. Not exactly rave reviews, but everyone liked it fine, and it's pretty filling. I make it for myself on occasion, but I only use frozen corn and peas, then microwave them to just thaw out, never cook them. They are a lot sweeter that way. I also used fresh red bell pepper and no cucumbers (my husband is allergic). This is an easy recipe to change to suit your tastes. The point is to keep it simple. Thanks Kim, for this great idea!
