Sweet Bell Pepper Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
I had a yellow pepper, not a red one, on hand and I wanted to use it. I used Penzey's "Pasta Sprinkle" in place of the dried basil & oregano (basically the same thing) and FORGOT about the Parmesan cheese! Still, we loved it! I'll make this again. Thank you.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This was very tasty but it was pretty dry. I kept checking the ingredients to make sure I didn't leave anything out because the dough itself was dry, even before baking. It tasted great, though. I'll have to experiment with the dry/wet ingredient ratio.

Asian Ground Beef and Pepper Saute

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
Very good! I didn't have any green pepper so I used chopped Vidalia onion. I doubled the sauce ingredients and a dash more crushed red pepper. Loved it!!

Curried Scrambled Egg

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Very quick & easy and and assuaged my curry craving. I added a touch of salt as I am NOT on a low salt diet and I cannot eat eggs without it. I didn't have chives; I used parsley. Definitely will be making these again!

Spicy Kielbasa Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Delicious! I made it on Sunday and had it on Monday so the flavors really had time to blend. I used a pound of skinless kielbasa and 2 cans of great northern beans. I used chopped tomatoes, not stewed (based on what I had on hand). I did not have a zucchini so I just omitted it. ALSO I made it on the stovetop, not the crockpot. I will be making this again & again.

Ham Loaf I

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
I've never had ham loaf before but my husband is from southeastern PA (York) and he had it as a lad and young man. So I tried this recipe and said it was right on. So thank you! I also enjoyed it and will be making this again. I only had 1 pound of ground pork so I used that. It was a bit crumbly so maybe that was from using not quite enough ground pork.

Kielbasa Kale Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
This was quite good. I made modifications based on others' reviews. And as I came on to review this, I noticed I left out the butter! Oh well, it was very good anyhow and I DID use a little olive oil as I cut up 1 pound of kielbasa and sauted it a bit with onions and garlic before adding it to the soup. I also used chicken broth rather than water but less, probably 6 cups. I don't think I used that much kale...I used a bag of fresh kale from Trader Joe's that was already chopped. It was my first experience using kale. I will make this again.

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
I used MOST of this recipe, based on what I had on hand. It was great! I only had about 1/4 pound of Italian sausage, no fresh basil (dried), no fresh spinach (frozen), and Parmesan versus Romano. I added a dash of crushed red pepper flakes, some kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Still, it was great with substitutions. I think this is a very forgiving recipe for adjustments!

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
This was my first attempt at Spanakopita and it was very tasty! A few variations: I cooked the spinach separately and then squeezed out some of the moisture. Sauted the onion, garlic and parsley and then added the already wilted spinach to that mixture. I used 12 sheets of phyllo dough and melted butter. Next time I'll use more phyllo on the bottom layer; maybe an 8 bottom/6 top ratio. I also used a 9x13 pan. Three 10 ounce bags of spinach.

Curry-Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This was ok. It needs more BAM! It didn't taste *bad* it just didn't wow us. I left out the red pepper simply because I was all out. I didn't need the cornstarch as the mixture was already thick (fine by me; I don't like adding it if I don't need it). Needs more *something* ... more curry, more coconut, some salt...something. I'll work with it and tweak it, though. It's a good base recipe.

Pasta with Pesto and Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
This was quite tasty and easy enough. I happened to have almost all the ingredients on hand...I used a thin, whole-wheat spaghetti instead of fettucine because that's what I had. I think it enhanced the dish! I will definitely make again.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Wonderful; my first time making cacciatore! A few modifications, based on what I had on hand...chicken broth in place of white wine. Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies. Added some chopped fresh mushrooms. Served over spaghetti. Delightful!

Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
These were tasty and I'll make again. I'll use less rosemary (personal preference); I used fresh rosemary. I used 1/2 cup of soy sauce and made up the difference in liquid with chicken broth. Like others, added some garlic and ginger, too. I also used six thick boneless pork chops.

Tender Breaded Turkey Cutlets

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
These were very good. I added a tablespoon a Dijon mustard to the sour cream (and I used full fat sour cream). I'll definitely make these again; they were quick, easy and tasty. I didn't have much problem with the breading. I coated the turkey cutlets and let them sit for about 30 minutes before putting them into the pan to help the crumbs "settle" on the cutlets.

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
Five stars with the same modifications others made: reduced the Dijon mustard by half and marinated for about 20 minutes (just long enough for the coals to heat up on the grill). Oh this was restaurant quality and definitely will make again this summer!

Turkey Tenderloins

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
Wonderful! I used 3 TBL fresh rosemary from my herb garden. I marinated for about 1.5 hours and then we grilled them. Moist and flavorful. Definitely a keeper!

Rhubarb Raisin Crisp

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
This was tasty and easy. I'll probably make it again. It didn't take 40 to 45 minutes to cook, though; only about 30 minutes and the topping started to get too brown so I pulled it out. Would have been great with some vanilla ice cream but I didn't have any.

Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Wonderful! The only thing I did differently was to use brown sugar instead of white. Will definitely make again (and again!).

Steak Hash

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This was a great way to use up leftovers. We had left over prime rib from a night out (those things are ALWAYS too big for me to finish). I followed the recipe except using sharp cheddar cheese (it's what I had) and I just scrambled the eggs right into the mixture, like an unfolded omelette. We loved it.
