Green Chile Frittata

Reviewed: May 4, 2004
This recipe was good and very easy to make but just seemed to be lacking something, like bits of ham or bacon.

Chocolate Oatmeal Pie

Reviewed: May 1, 2004
The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is so incredibly sweet. If you like really sweet chocolate desserts, then this is a 10 star recipe for you. I took a previous reviewer's recommendation of cutting back the corn syrup, which I did to 3/4 of a cup, and it seemed to have the right consistency when cutting. I'm not sure if I'll make this pie again or not, but that's just a personal preference because of the sweetness. The rest of the family seemed to like it.

Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2004
We all liked this pretty well but thought it tasted more like a meatloaf than a cheeseburger. It is very simple to make, especially if you use a store-bought crust.

A Surprise-Inside French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2004
We thought it was pretty good, my very picky 12 yr. old liked it a lot. I used 2 eggs and a little low-fat milk in place of the egg substitute, which is quite expensive. 3 cups would be a lot wasted. I also sprinkled a little cinnamon in with the egg/milk mixture.

Kalamata Olive, Tomato, and Cheese Melt

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2004
This dish was fantastic! I wouldn't change a thing. The kalamata olives are what really makes this dish so I wouldn't recommend substituting them, unless you really dislike them. Be sure to fine chop them so they are well distributed throughout the dish. I would say this dish feeds closer to 8 - 10 people. Thanks for a wonderful recipe, Cindy!

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2004
WOW! This is fabulous and just melts in your mouth. I used good old Stadium brand mustard, because that is what I had on hand, and let the filets marinate for about 6 hrs. Because I am not a fan of blue cheese, I used goat cheese instead and it was wonderful. I cooked the 2" thick filets to about 160º internal temp. and they came out perfectly, with just a slightly pink color inside. GREAT RECIPE, JDVMD!!

Slow Cooker Pork Cacciatore

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2004
This was delicious. Only problem was the chops came out so tender, they were falling apart in pieces and I couldn't lift out whole ones. Also, this makes A LOT of sauce so either add more chops or do like I did which was to serve spaghetti noodles on the side. I still have a lot of sauce left over. Next time, I will probably 1/2 the sauce. Thanks, Teresa!

Oatmeal and Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
Sorry, this recipe just did not work for us at all. It could have been my fault, however. I only had a can of diced tomatoes instead of the stewed kind so I don't know if that would have made a difference or not. Most everyone else really liked it so it must have just been us.

Tuna Pita Melts

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
This recipe was so tasty and a snap to make. I didn't have any dill pickle relish, just sweet relish, and thought it still tasted quite good. Don't bother putting in the 1/4 tsp. salt, there is so much in the tuna and cheddar cheese already.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2004
We all enjoyed this very much and it was easy to make, but there was one flavor I thought was a little overbearing and left a bad aftertaste. The best I could figure, it was the dried minced onion. They just seemed too strong. I will cut those back to about 1/2 - 3/4 tsp. next time. I marinated the tenderloin for about 18 hrs. and took a previous reviewer's recommendation of injecting some of the marinade in the meat. I used a gas grill, set on medium heat, and it took about 35 mins. for the pork to be done. I boiled the marinade down and served with the meat, which it seemed like it needed for more flavor.

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2004
I thought these cookies were just so-so but my family seemed to like them. I thought the cookies were a little bland and were more cake-like than cookie-like. They puffed up instead of spreading and made a very large cookie. The cream filling was overly sweet and didn't firm up well. I have a different sandwich cookie recipe that has an excellent filling. It calls for 3/4 cup shortening, instead of the butter, and no vanilla. It has a firmer texture and isn't overly sweet. I've sometimes used soy milk in place of the regular milk and it gives it a nice flavor.

Easiest BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
I wish I would have read the reviews ahead of time. Although not a bad sauce, it is definitely heavy on the ketchup taste and doesn't taste like bbq sauce at all. The chops were very tender and overall, had a nice flavor, just not quite what I was expecting.

Zucchini Pineapple Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
This was very good and easy to make but I didn't think the pineapple was very noticeable (much to my husband's relief). I think next time I would add some chopped walnuts to the recipe. Thanks, Michele!

Portobello Club Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
This was very good and a snap to make. I used a packet of bouillon powder, a little sprinkled on each mushroom, to greatly reduce the sodium of the recipe. I used low-salt bacon also. I used Pepper Jack cheese, and becaues I didn't have any chipotle peppers, I just sprinkled a little hot sauce in with the mayo. Also, I only used 2 slices of bread per sandwich, instead of 3, and still found it to be quite filling.

Baked Kielbasa and Potatoes in Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
Good recipe, James! I took a previous reviewer's recommendation of adding pineapple to the dish and it made an interesting twist. I wouldn't add any additional salt as there is plenty in the kielbasa and canned tomato sauce. I halved this recipe and it made enough to serve 6 people.

Cream of Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
This soup was fabulous and so easy. I used one chicken bouillon cube and two packets of buillion powder, which cut the sodium down to about 1/3 of the original recipe and it tasted perfect. I think it would be really salty the other way. Also, I would suggest heating the butter and flour on low, then turning it up to medium when you add the milk. Mine nearly burned. Thanks, Joyce!

Chicken Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
I would have given this 4 or 5 stars but we all found it WAY TOO SALTY. I even cut the seasoning salt back to 1/2 tsp. and used low-sodium soy sauce. I would recommend just a light sprinkling of each chicken breast with the seasoning salt. Also, the "gravy" never got very thick so next time I would cut back on some of the water, by at least a 1/2 cup. Otherwise, a very good recipe.

Mom's Potato Puffs

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2004
These were good but we thought the flour taste was a bit overwhelming. I think next time I would cut the flour back to about 1/3 cup. Also, I cut the salt amt. in half and should have added the entire amt. - they were a little bland. I added a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese, which was a nice addition. I will make these again but will tweak the recipe a little.

Carrot Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2004
This is very similar to a recipe my mother always made called "Perfection Salad." She learned it in home ec class in the early '40's. She always used lime jello, and besides the carrots and pineapple, she would sometimes add in some finely chopped celery, or some shredded cabbage. One of my favorites from my childhood! Thanks for sharing it, Asteng.
