Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2012
Excellent! Be sure to watch the video...it helps you understand how you can alter this to your specific tastes. My alterations: I used a mix of Monterey Jack and Sharp Cheddar and put ALL 3 cups in the rue, then sprinkled just a little more MJ on top. I increased the Panko to 3/4 cup, and omitted the Thyme (I'm not a fan of thyme) and Cayenne (only b/c I knew toddlers would be eating it and I wasn't sure if it would be too much, so I just didn't use any at all, to be safe). I also like mine saucier, so I only used about 12-13 oz of the elbow mac. It was a HUGE hit! Thanks Chef John!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Rating this a 5 because of the dressing (though I did cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup). AMAZING. I add all the dressing ingredients to a mason jar, shake, and viola! It's ready to go and ready to travel. I use it on a salad of spinach, dried cranberries, Brie, and pine nuts. DELICIOUS! You can also add chicken. The dressing is so much better than any bottled dressing and super easy to make. This is now my "go to" dressing. Thanks!

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
YUM. I make this a little lower in fat/calories by using reduced fat mayo and sour cream...nobody knows the difference! Also, I double the water chestnuts for extra crunch. Can't find the Leek soup mix around here, so I use the Knorr SPRING Vegetable mix. Closer to the Leek and much better than the plain ol' Vegetable everyone else uses. Always gets rave reviews and is the first thing to be gone!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
I make this OFTEN for my hubs and 10 year old daughter. They both LOVE it. I use reduced fat mayo and Old Bay instead of the other seasonings. A winner!

Buttermilk Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
Good way to use up extra buttermilk. Definitely add more sugar than called for...and I recommend using all mayo, as written. I used some mayo, some sour cream and it just didn't work as well.

Spring Cleaning Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
Fantastic! Used all butter (not a fan of the artificial ingredients in shortening), one cup white/one cup whole wheat flour, and half & half instead of evaporated milk (just b/c I didn't have any EM). For my add-ins, I used what I had in the pantry - coconut, semi-sweet choc chips, white choc chips, rolled oats, and craisins (soaked in warm water for 15 min to plump them up before draining and adding). Hubs says they are addicting! Thanks for a great recipe to use up all the leftovers in the pantry!

Broccoli Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
5 stars with these tweaks: add worcestshire, garlic, season salt & onion powder. Omit mushrooms. DO NOT cook the broccoli--add it frozen so it doesn't get mushy. Add Fried Oinions during the last 5 min. YUM!

Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Growing up, my Grandma made these for us all the time; we called them "Toasted Yolkies." A few tips: 1) butter or spray the griddle/pan. 2) Flip once, just for 30 sec to cook/toast the top. 3) this might sound weird, but it tastes REALLY REALLY good if you spread a very thin layer of grape jelly on the outside toast. 4) don't overbook the egg! It's supposed to be runny so you can soak up all the yolk with that bread! 5) try using Texas toast....works very well.

BREAKSTONE'S Chicken and Sour Cream Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
Giving this 4 stars "as is." Make these changes and it is 5 stars for sure: 1) Boil chicken breasts in chicken broth, garlic & bay leaves. Rough chop/shred. 2) Add garlic powder with the cumin. 3) Use green salsa or verde enchilada sauce instead of red jarred salsa. 4) add chopped jalapeño to the mix (leave it out on a few if you have kids like mine who don't like it spicy) 5) fill the tortillas fuller! 10 isn't necessary for a family of 3-4 anyway. 6) spray the baking dish for easy clean-up 7) serve with avocado on the side, too. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Cabbage and Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
YUM. Made some alterations to try to make it a tiny bit healthier: microwaved ready-cooked bacon & chopped that up. So, sauteed onion (& garlic) in a little olive oil and butter, added a medium head of chopped cabbage and about a 1/4 cup chicken broth. Also only used 1tbsp butter for the noodles. Tasted a little bland, so added 1tsp sugar, sea salt, pepper, garlic POWDER, and Cajun seasoning. With these alterations, it was awesome. Would also be good with ham, procciuto, or spicy chicken sausage. Thanks for a great recipe that the entire family loved!

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
This was great! I doubled the recipe, made in the crock pot, used 98% fat free cream of chicken soup and took a little help from the store and used the meat from a ready-made rotisserie chicken. I think the rotisserie chicken added a ton of flavor! Superb!

Pork and Shrimp Pancit

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Restaurant quality food right here! My tweaks: used chicken & shrimp instead of pork. Didn't have already-cooked chicken, so I marinated the chicken in 2 TBSP soy sauce, 2 TBS Fish Sauce and a pinch of brown sugar about an hour ahead of time. Didn't have oyster sauce, so used the chicken marinade instead, and added about a TBSP more soy to the dish at the end. Used cabbage instead of Bok Choy, as that is what I had on hand. Left out the red pepper to see if my kid would eat it, and she LOVED it (9 years old). Hubs and I added red pepper to our own bowls. Superb!

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
These were great! I accidentally added too many blueberries, so they were a bit soft and heavy, but that was my fault. My 9-year-old LOVES them and I feel great about letting her eat them!

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
My family liked these "OK,", but we found them to not have as much flavor as we hoped. We'll stick with our BBQ Saurkraut Crockpot meatballs.

Been making these for years; they're delicious! I also recommend using the chive-flavored cream cheese - makes them extra special!

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
This was FREAKING AMAZING. Do yourself a favor and make this--exactly as written. Don't change anything. You won't be disappointed. I used a rump roast and served on toasted hoagie buns! We ate this 3 days in a row until it was gone, and STILL wanted more! I used about a quarter of the juice in the jar and it was perfectly spiced for us.

Three Packet Slow Cooker Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Easy and delicious. All I had was bone-in chuck roast, so next time will increase the cooking time by a couple of hours so it falls apart more.
