Irish-Style Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
I typically make another lamb stew recipe that has red wine, zucchini, tomatoes, fennel, horseradish and chiles. This recipe looks very basic next to it so I was a little skeptical that this would be as satisfying. It was great (the parsley was key for us). This stew has a short ingredient list, was a snap to prep and has a simple flavor that hits the spot. It's a great one to make ahead as the flavor is better the next day. Now I have two great lamb stew recipes!

My Own Famous Stuffed Grape Leaves

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2002
I've made these twice - once with ground veal and once without the veal & olive oil. I like it without the veal and the olive oil. I use jarred grape leaves from a speciality store so I don't have to cook them as long (but they aren't shiny green either). I agree w/ Rick, for a main dish, I like my leaves bigger than the recipe directs. To help keep them closed during the simmering, sqeeze the stuffed leaves w/ your hand before placing in the pot. I crave these, they are so good! Thanks Patti!

Herbed Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
It was a nice change but I prefer salmon with citrus. Add lemon juice and fresh garlic - much better. It was dry but maybe that was the fact our sockeye was flash frozen and not fresh?

Mixed Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
I used this on a mixed green salad with arugula, sorrel, mint, chives & lemon balm. I also added the walnuts (toasted) to the salad after plating. Very bright flavor; excellent with the slightly bitter greens.

Stephan's Broiled Salmon Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2002
A different way to eat salmon. Definitely add the garlic roasted red potatoes, adding a little lemon right before serving. Yum.

Nachos Grande

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This tasted plain. Even with the jalapenos it wasn't the right amount or flavor of spices, and we definitely didn't enjoy the cheese soup flavor. We added tomatoes, sour cream and chives. Maybe with real cheese or, gasp, Velvetta and some seasonings, it would be better.

Tuna Salad With Fresh Dill

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2000
I must say that this is the tastiest tuna recipe I've had in a while! So easy and quick too. Can use dried herbs but the fresh ones are better. Thanks for the great recipe Jessica.

Grandma's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
We all thought this had way too much of a ketchup flavor. All these ingredients are in a typical meatloaf topping (minus cloves) and was definitely missing something - maybe bbq sauce, molasses or some spice?? I did like the clove (used 1/4tsp) but no one else did. We'll make another recipe.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Very good. Easy to put together, quick to marinade and fast to cook. I cut the recipe in half for the sauce and used 10 oz of 30ct shrimp. I also cut the hot sauce by a third since we wanted our 15mo to try it (she liked it). I boiled the remaining marinade and added it to orzo, which we added the shrimp. Served with grilled asparagus, a simple side salad and white wine - yum!

Garden Herb Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2002
Wonderful smelling and tasting. Very good the next day. Next time I will add more herbs since I was expecting more herb flavor.

Chef John's Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
4.5 stars. I wish it was creamier but it was because of my cheese selection. I used leftover blue and havarti dill instead of Gruyere. Even still, this is my new artichoke dip recipe.

Herbed Eggplant Slices

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2001
This is good for something different. It was still tasty without the garlic (food allergy).

Cucumber and Avocado Sushi

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
I had a desperate craving for maki, & this recipe is what I made. Regardless of your comfort level trying homemade maki, this recipe hits the spot - fast, easy, versatile and delicious. I made mine with rinsed Spanish med grain rice, carrot, steamed asparagus and fake crab. This is maki for beginners so it's a simplified version. Once you are comfortable with this one, learn the traditional way to make sushi rice for an even better maki roll. Thanks for the recipe!

Pork Roast with Sauerkraut and Kielbasa

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Simple ingredients, easy to put together and tender results. I used an organic kraut without extra seasonings/salt so I added salt to mine, which it needed. I also used smoked sausage instead of kielbasa. As some noted, the flavor was a little one-dimensional so I would treat this as a base recipe. Next time, I'll add apple juice/cider and caraway...and there will be a next time :) Also, if this turned out dry for you, either your crockpot doesn't have a tight lid, your kraut not enough juice or you're adding veggies that soak up liquid/salt.

Cranberry Orange Wheat Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
I'll definitely make these again. I used fresh cranberries so that made it a little bit tart so next time, I'll add a bit of white sugar with the fresh berries. I used a food processor to mix the shortening to the dry ingredients & then used the processor to rough chop my cranberries. As soon as I pulled them off the baking sheet I had to snag one, add butter and savor with a cup of tea. Wonderful on a cold winter morning.

Aunt Millie's Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2000
This is really cheesy and without too much of a salty taste. I used crackers instead of croutons and it still was excellent. Thanks!

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
The hardest part about this recipe is cleaning the shrimp. Easy and delicious - perfect for a summer meal. I used wild caught shrimp and smoked paprika.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
As far as cabbage rolls go, this was good. Honestly, I'd rather make meatloaf for work involved. Also, neither my husband or I grew up with cabbage rolls so there is no nostalgia factor there either. I doubled the tomato sauce, as suggested by other reviewers. We thought the sauce and rolls were bland and the cabbage flavor was lost-that's probably due to my slow cooker. I think it runs too hot and overcooks items. If you love cabbage rolls, this recipe is probably for you. Also, how can so many 5 star reviews be wrong? :)

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
Wow, what a delicious dressing! Since I love buttermilk, I substituted part of the mayonnaise and sour cream. I will never buy ranch dressing again!

Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
I cooked a 2.5lb roast on low for 6 hours. That was too long so I will adjust next time. Other than that, the flavors were great!
