Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2014
I had such high hopes for this recipe, as I love both curry and dill and already prefer to use sweet pickle relish for my traditional tuna salad. The addition of parmesan gave me pause, but I soldiered on with the reassurances of hundreds of rave reviews. Oh, how I wish I had trusted my intuition. The flavor is strange at best, with a bold smoky aftertaste that seems like some unholy union of the curry and parmesan. The only alteration I made was to cut back on the mayo for a consistency that seemed more palatable. In the end, however, I am not sure I can actually eat this, which is saying something! I've now added diced celery (which I never normally use in tuna salad) to attempt to add a fresher taste to the smokiness. I'm not sure anything will save it, though, and I likely will mourn the 2 cans of tuna I wasted trying this tonight.

Sausage and Corn Chowder from Hatfield®

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
An exceptionally simple and no-fuss recipe that yields excellent flavor every time! Hearty enough for dinner, with crusty bread on the side, or perfect for a winter potluck or lunch gathering. I made no changes and have been more than pleased with the results every time I've cooked this.

Graham Crusted Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2013
I omitted the rosemary and added ginger. Delicious flavor, but salty. Next time I will salt to taste afterward. Our 2 young kids (both under 6) loved this, as did my very picky husband. Will try apple chutney with it in the future.

Excellent authentic taste! I took others' advice and thickened the soup before adding the egg. Delicious!

Easy Platz (Coffee Cake)

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I gave 4 stars only because of the cook time issues outlined in other reviews. Otherwise, this was a marvelous, moist, simple, delicious coffee cake!

Surimi, Spinach, and Roasted Red Pepper Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Absolutely wonderful, simple recipe and dish that was appreciated by everyone at a dinner potluck. I used minced ham instead of crab and omitted parmesan - it was still delicious! I cooked it for about 35 minutes and then let it sit in the oven for an additional 30. Perfect!

Creamy Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
It was only okay. There simply was not very much flavor, even using some of the other reviewers' suggestions with chicken broth. Could be used as a good base recipe, but nothing I'll try again anytime soon.

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
This was definitely good, but not wonderful. Certainly easy, with very simple ingredients, but it lacked some flavor that I just can't quite identify. Husband suggested ginger could improve it, but I don't think that alone would elevate this recipe from okay/good to super/delicious. I'll probably experiment with it again, because of its simplicity, but it wasn't what I'd hoped.

Grecian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Simple and delicious! Prepared as directed, but cooked in the oven for 20 minutes at 400, then removed from oven and tented with foil on counter for another 10 minutes. Perfect! A wonderful mid-winter's meal, with fresh citrus and garlic taste, with salad and saffron rice on the side.

Slow Cooker Marmalade Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I made this, halving the recipe, with the addition of (lite) coconut milk in the last hour of cooking as others recommended. I had already increased the quantity of both the ginger and the curry powder, and it was still lacking somewhat in flavor. Served with oven roasted carrots, red peppers, onions, over brown rice. Additional salt improved the taste, but overall, we didn't love this dish, despite its simplicity.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
A very simple, delicious stroganoff! Added onion and mushroom soup mix to simmering beef (chuck roast) and broth, plus 1/4 cup red wine. Found the sauce thickened more than I liked and I needed to add water (and more salt and pepper) toward the end of cooking. Otherwise, flavor was magnificent! Served mixed with egg noodles.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Excellent recipe! Definitely be sure you know the power and cooking capability of your slow-cooker, however. I left mine in for 7 hours, and it was very tender, falling apart on the fork, but still just a bit overdone and dry inside. Will probably be fine at 5.5 hours the next time I make it. I added a dash of Zinfandel wine and used low sodium soy sauce. DELICIOUS!

Easy Chicken Posole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
So simple, yet so flavorful and filling! I accidentally bought golden hominy, but the taste didn't seem to suffer, and I didn't use chili powder. Added lime juice and half a can of Mexican Rotel to the cooking broth, simmered as directed, and garnished our bowls with shredded lettuce, chopped cilantro, and lime. It was amazing! We're even thinking of making a huge batch and throwing a Posole Dinner Party for the start of winter!
