Bistro Veal Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2014
I did whir up 4 white button mushrooms, 3 cloves of garlic and 1/2 cup of Walla Walla sweet onion in a food processor (coarse). Then tossed in a frying pan with a little oil - cooked until tender. Then I followed the rest of the recipe exactly as written, with the addition of the cooled mushroom mixture. I rolled into 8 slider size meatballs and grilled them. No condiments beyond a nice piece of lettuce some homemade aoli (or a little of your favorite mayo). Absolutely a keeper! Will make again and again. BWT, no cheese needed. NOM NOM NOM~ THANKS FOR SHARING!

Kale Salad with Pineapple Dressing

Reviewed: May 21, 2014
I feel like you have to make this a day ahead and let the lemon juice and pineapple enzymes do their work to soften and remove bitterness from the kale. It's decent the first day, but amazing on the next! So if you have time, MAKE AHEAD. Cheap, tasty and sure to please lots of folks. I sub some pepitas (roasted pumpkin seeds) for the sunflowers for variety. Love this recipe!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
My 19 year old son and his girlfriend made this for Thanksgiving - it was incredible - beautiful, firm, different and absolutely perfect! Def. will make again (or have them). Note: Put a pan under it so you don't end up with drippings on the bottom of oven :)

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
I did like it very much. My hubby and son thought they were perfectly sweet with a great texture. HOWEVER - I did do a few things sorta differently due to ingredients and prior scone making experience - 8Tbspn of butter (if salted, reduce the salt in recipe by 1/2) cut into pea size chunks and 'pinched' into the flour mixture by hand. Then I used semi sweet chocolate chopped coarsely instead of chips and used 4Tbspn of OJ AND 3 TBspn of 1/2 & 1/2 or heavy cream. Made a large round circle and cut into triangles and separated before baking. YUM!!!!!!!

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
Super easy and we DIDNT soak the corn - we did exactly as the instructions read and put it on our Weber grill on high - cooked for 30 minutes sweet and simple and tasty and easy.

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
Don't use butter! It is a shortening recipe and that gives it a distinct texture & taste that butter doesn't provide. I always add a smidge extra cream of tartar cause I love the tartness. These are addictive. I agree with other reviewers - don't let them brown at all if you want a really soft cookie. For those who like thinner tougher cookies, squash the walnut sized balls down lightly with your palm or bottom of a sugared glass and bake til slightly brown. Will definitely make again, when my waistline gets over the current batch.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Dang it! Too dang nabbit good for words. And, YES, if you object to a bit of spice (not overwhelming to moi) you may want to tone it down a bit. The only sub I made was 1 can of pinto's, a lil extra hot sauce/cayenne and I had a red pepper and a yellow pepper. Other than that, I used HOT NY style sausage and let it cook a good long time....Five stars - CONGRATS!

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
The best oatmeal cookie ever - if the dough is too crumbly use your hands to squeeze it together into rather large size balls. Press lightly with palm of hand as they don't spread much (at all) during baking. They are bake shop quality - I love that they aren't all mushy. My whole house full loves them - 3 generations and counting.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
Excellent recipe! I sub'd what I had to (based on the contents of my fridge) - used green onion (same qty) instead of onion, no green pepper - 3 sliced mushrooms sub'd, 2 cans tuna albacore, no pimentos. Lots of cheese - cubes - didn't read the part about melting in the soup (came out great anyway). Also, didn't saute the celery onions or mushrooms - just sliced VERY thin, lowered temp by 25 degrees, increased cooking time 15 min. At the end I topped with Panko bread crumbs, 2 tbsp butter melted and parmesan - broiled for a few minutes - FABULOUS!!!! A REAL KEEPER - ADAPTABLE AND SOLID

Wisconsin Bratwurst

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
Delish! Didn't add as much butter as called for (cut it to 1/4 c) and it was still fabulous. I also added a little bit of red pepper flakes, some ground pepper and a some thin slices of red and yellow mini peppers for some color. Boiled and then cooked on my grill pan on the stovetop. Will definitely make it again. Oh, yes, also - for sure serve the onions and beer sauce with the meal - my mouth is watering again just writing this!

Old Italian Meat Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
Absolutely amazing - I couldn't be happier - only thing I did much different was reduced the wine by a cup. It's still very wine'y with 2 cups, so if you prefer a little less, you could cut back to 1 1/2 and still get some of that flavor. WE LOVED IT!!! OUR NEW RED SAUCE!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
It's good, but not great. Need additional flavor (spices, something with some zip - cayenne?). Would not rush to make again without research into what might help this stand out, given the somewhat legnthy prep time for a simple casserole.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Very good, still needed some more punch to the sauce to get a 5 star rating. I would definitely adjust the seasoning and look for other ideas if you want more flavor. Hubby and kids loved it. I am admittedly very picky about my Chicken Marsala.

Didn't make the sauce, but used the recipe for the meatballs - and now I am replacing my old meatball recipe. Now, I want to try the sauce.

Corn and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Excellent just as it the recipe states. I did accidentally puree more than 1 cup of the corn base, but it came out quite lovely, smooth with small bits of corn and (LARGE) bits of fresh. dungeness crab from the Pacific. WHEN I make it again, will try and use something with a bit of color to brighten up the presentation (perhaps microdiced carrots or red pepper)and possibly a dash of sherry to impart some depth of flavor. As it was, the recipe came out creamy, spicy (just right) and a big HIT!! My family loved it!!

German Apple Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Excellent recipe. Add a little extra flour if dough is way too sticky. A recipe that family will request again and AGAIN! Incredible flavor. Made a cream cheese glaze, a little lighter to go with dense cake.

Oyster and Cornbread Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
Sub'd 1 jar fresh oysters, seared and chopped. Extra celery (6 stalks) and more like 1 and 1/2 finely chopped onions (sauteed slowly in butter til tender). Used fresh sage, finely chopped. Taste was superb - kids didn't even know they were having oysters!!
