Nana's Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
This was very good. I made it the night before (except for the sour cream and wine). The next day, I heated through with any extra 1/4 to 1/2 cup water. Then I added the wine. We just added a couple of dollops of sour cream on top once plated. I will defintiely make again! I followed the recipe except for adding a little extra meat and adding sour cream to plate. The sirloin steak strips were tender in about 2 to 2 1/4 hours. I used No Yolk egg noodles; the next time I will use regular egg noodles - this recipe deserves it. Best of all, no canned soup involved!

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
My husband called it "Excellent" - more than once!! I loved it too. I basically followed the recipe but halved the recipe. Floured meat before browning. Used low sodium soy sauce and jarred minced garlic. Omitted salt. Added 1/3 cup of 2% milk toward the end of cooking time. NO corn starch needed. The amount of cooking time really depends on the quality of the beef. I had to cook mine longer than called for; I guess the stew meat from my grocery was not from the most tender cuts. These are really minor personal preferrance changes; this is a 5-star recipe! No canned soup involved! Served over Mahatma yellow rice with a salad, and white bread to sop up the gravy. Next time, I will make biscuits to go with it. Superb!

Turkey Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
I made this last night. I gave it 5 stars because my picky husband loved it, as did I. I doubled the turkey, used cream of potato, cream of chicken and cream of mushroom, veg-all and a can of sliced potatoes that I diced. I added seasoning of garlic, poultry season, minced dry onion, splash of worchestershire sauce, chopped parsley, season salt, pepper blend. I used about 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cheddar cheese and about 1/3 cup of leftover turkey brown gravy. I baked in large casserole dish with only the top crust. My oven is old and finicky so the next time I make this, I will place a ring of foil over the outer edge of the crust to prevent over-browning while the center of the crust browns more. My mixture made a large casserole. The next time I make this, I will not add extra cans, I will bake in pie plate and use the top and bottom crust - at my husband's request.

Oven-Roasted Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
I made this tonight. Without any prompting, my husband said he really liked it. Huge! I followed the recipe exactly. The gravy was great too! I would like to say that if you have the 3 lb turkey breast (Mine was Butterball brand) that comes with the netting wrapped around it, if you take the netting off, the breast loses shape. I had to re-tie with string and while it did not look as good as the turkey breast usually looks, it cooked great. It was very moist and tender and tasted wonderful too. Next time, I will not remove the netting and will just rub the outside and maybe inject the butter mix inside under the skin with my injecter set. My injecter needle is large, so I don't think it will be clogged using my jarred minced garlic. Since it is only the 2 of us eating, I will use the lefover turkey and gravy to make a turkey pot pie this week. I saw several good recipes on this site for that. (I served with rice and salad. The gravy was great on the rice too!) Thanks for giving us a recipe that adds flavor to an old favorite!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Thought I had Sloppy Joe mix in the cabinet. When I found out I did not, I found this recipe. My husband likes it and said he like to have it again. That's a winner for me; he is very picky. Also, it is very easy to put together.

Dried Beef Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Very good! I made this yesterday for a small Christmas gaqthering. Everyone loved it. I used 2 (2oz) packs of shaved beef inside the ball because I could not find dried beef; then I used 1 (2oz) pack of shaved beef on the outside. I doubled the Worchestershire Sauce. It makes a large ball (about 5-6 inches in diameter). For a small gathering of 5-6 people, you could half the recipe. We had about 1/2 of the ball left over with 5 people enjoying it; eveyone was trying to prevent getting full on this because we were following it with a large meal. I will try rolling in crushed pecan bits the next time.

Ed Zieba's Famous Family Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I loved this recipe. The chops were so tender. My hubby did not make it home for dinner, so he ate his for lunch the next day. Left overs were good too, but not as good as fresh out of the oven in my opinion. I had 4 boneless chops about ½ - ¾ in thick. Baked the covered chops about 30 minutes at 400 degrees then turned it down to 350 (my oven cooks a little hot) for 10 minutes. Then I decreased oven to 300 for 35 minutes. I used 2 Vidalia onions sliced into rings. Didn’t change the actual recipe except for proportion needs. Served with Grilling Beans; marinated cucumber, onion and tomato in low fat Italian dressing. Will make again. Company quality, lighter-side dish.

Kevin's Sea Shells

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This dish had great flavor even though I had a hard time getting the pasta to look picture perfect. Perhaps I over cooked the pasta a tad?

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Restaurant-Style Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I cooked a 5 lb prime roast without ribs. The roast was excellent. I have to admit that I took it out a few minutes early fearing that it would be over cooked for our tastes... it was actually slightly redder than I wanted. Next time I wont cheat...I will follow the recipe exactly.

Pat's Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
These are perfect dumplings! I cooked the dumplings exactly like the recipe except I added 2 tablespoons of milk to soften my dough a little more. For those who have not cooked dumplings before: I cooked two large chicken breasts in about 5-6 cups of water with a dash of thyme, 2 teaspoons dried parsley, and large chunks of 1/4 onion & 1 stalk celery, and a touch of black pepper. When chicken was done, I removed the chicken (allowed to cool) and discarded the onion and celery chunks. I added 4 cups of store bought chicken broth to the pot (you want at least 6 cups of liquid as some of it gets absorbed), lightly stirred in the dumplings a few at a time. I shredded the chicken and added to pot. Salted and peppered to taste and added a pinch more parsley and a little garlic powder. Served up with cornbread; it was an awesome meal! Thanks for posting a dumpling recipe like my grandmother and mother used to make!

Mom's Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I added salt, pepper, garlic powder and used seasoned bread crumbs because I did not have seasoned croutons. Excellent. Will make again and again. Thanks.

Weeknight Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
5 stars for quick, easy and good taste. Paired this with Lemon parsley potatoes from this site. Nice complimenting flavors in our opinions. Not a real fancy looking dish, but makes a good family night meal.

Lemon Parsley Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
We loved the sauce on these potatoes. My fiance asked if I would fix them again. He is a meat and potatoes man and we are always looking for new ideas on potatoes. This is a keeper for us.
