Easy Pie Crust

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
I have avoided making pie crusts for many years because I could never get it right. They were too much effort and always turned out tough. But I gave this recipe a try and I am absolutely ecstatic to have found such an easy recipe that turned out so well! It was tender, flaky and flavorful! My crust was for a quiche and I used olive oil as another reviewer here suggested. It turned out fantastic. This is a keeper for sure and I am saying goodbye to Pillsbury crusts! Thank you so much for a great recipe that will definitely save me time and money in the kitchen. An update on my original review - I healthied this recipe up a bit by using 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour plus 1 cup of white flour and it turned out great.

Asparagus, Orange and Endive Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2005
Delicious and refreshing salad. I tweaked it a little bit according to what I had on hand. I used baby spinach instead of endive, green onion instead of red onion, and raspberry balsamic vinegar instead of raspberry vinegar. I also added some sliced, grilled chicken breast to make it a main dish salad and sprinkled sliced almonds over the top. It was a great light supper for a hot summer day.

Cranberry Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
Very easy and a great way to use up that leftover Thanksgiving cranberry sauce that nobody touched! I ad libbed a little (it is in no way a reflection on the original recipe, it's just what I do...). I added about a cup of ground pecans to the dough. On top of the cranberry layer I added a handful of white chocolate chips (would have liked to add a few more but someone had broken into the bag and a handful was all that was left!), and I also added about a cup of shredded coconut before adding the top layer of dough. Delicious and festive cookies that I am looking forward to serving at our Christmas party tomorrow night! Thanks for a great recipe.

Easy Baked Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
This was a great holiday ham recipe. It was moist and tender and had great flavor. I left the leftover ham in the gingerale bath in the fridge and it continued to be delicious. Thanks for sharing!

The Aztec Five-Step

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2006
This was very good, however I scaled down the number as well as the quantity of ingredients and made some major modifications in order to make this a little less time consuming to prepare. Instead of chicken, I used fully-cooked chicken sausage w/spinach and asiago cheese. Since the sausage had spinach in it I omitted this from the ingredient list. I used chicken broth instead of water, and I used diced tomatoes instead of whole. I did not puree the tomatoes in a food processor. I used tortilla chips instead of corn tortillas, and I also added a dollop of sour cream to the finished dish. I served this to 4 picky teens and they all had seconds!

Spicy Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2003
I took a lot of liberties with this recipe, all of which turned out great. I added 1 cup of uncooked long grain rice and 1.5 cups water to the bottom of the casserole dish. I used turkey-smoked sausage to lower the fat content. I omitted the peas and mushrooms and sliced up two small zucchini instead. I used frozen corn instead of canned. And I used a teaspoon of Italian seasoning instead of the bay leaf and thyme. It was GREAT and the whole family loved it. Very hearty!

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
Wonderful recipe! I made this exactly as the recipe called for, except I had two tenderloins in the crockpot, so about 4 lbs. total pork. The meat was very tender and moist and the broth was so flavorful. I served the broth over jasmine rice and it was delicious. Leftovers the next day were even better. Thanks for a great recipe.

Asparagus Supreme

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
Great recipe that is very versatile. I used fresh asparagus, regular diced onion instead of green onion, celery soup instead of mushroom soup and light sour cream instead of mayonnaise. I also used an entire red pepper (diced) and probably two cups of fresh mushrooms. I combined and sauteed all the veggies together with the chicken rather than layering them separately, and piled the whole conglomerate over the rice. Also thinned the sauce down with water. It was yummy!

Nanny's Goulash

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
Very good, and a quick and easy weeknight supper. I added a couple cloves of fresh minced garlic, and also added around 3/4 of a cup of sour cream in the last few minutes. Served it over rice and it was delicious! Thanks for a great recipe.

Leslie's Salty Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
Nice twist on an old familiar. I brushed the foil with olive oil instead of butter. The potato skins were soft and had great flavor.

Greek Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2003
A great salad! Like someone else suggested, I used creamy italian salad dressing instead of regular italian. I also used considerably less olives than what it called for, a 4 ounce can instead of 15 ounces, and increased the feta to probably 2-3 ounces. It turned out great and got a lot of compliments at the cook-out where it was served.

Man's Way Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2004
This was very good, and easy. I added some chopped red and green bell pepper as well as chopped onion. Also added a little half-and-half to the eggs and poured them over the sausage, potatoes and peppers in the 9x13 baking dish, then baked the whole thing for about 30 minutes. Kicked it up a notch with a little cayenne pepper too. My men loved it. :-)

No-Cook Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2004
This was very good, fresh tasting, and a good use for all of the Roma tomatoes from my garden last summer. I plan to make it again this summer!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
Easy and tasty recipe! I pre-cooked and shredded the chicken breasts and added them with the rest of the ingredients at the start, so no need to do it later. I also added a couple tablespoons of chopped, fresh cilantro. Served it over tortilla chips with sour cream and cheese on top. It was a hit with the whole family. Will definitely make this one again.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2005
This is a delicious shrimp marinade. We eat a lot of grilled shrimp during the summer and I have used this recipe numerous times. I usually substitute ketchup for the tomato paste, and sometimes add a little cayenne pepper for extra kick (we like hot & spicy dishes).

Frogmore Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2004
Great recipe. I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and made it for a quick weekday supper. The whole family loved it, and there were no leftovers. The flavor of the sweet corn in the Old Bay Seasoning was terrific.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2003
This is delicious. Makes the lamb "melt-in-your-mouth", and very easy to put together. My only variation on this recipe was to "stuff" the lamb leg with garlic cloves before marinating it. (There is no such thing as too much garlic!)

Thai Pork Satay

Peaches and Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
Oh my goodness, this was DELICIOUS! I think I could have eaten the whole thing myself in one setting... but some how I managed to restrain myself, lol. The crust tastes like a pecan shortbread cookie and is absolutely fantastic. I used two packages of cream cheese in that layer, but that was the only change I made to the original recipe. The whole thing just comes together so well and is absolutely one of the best desserts I have made in a LONG time. Thank you so much for a great recipe!
