Hot Dog Men

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
This gets 5 stars because they are just TOO FUN. Why had I never heard of this before? I, personally, did not eat the little hot dog man, but my son really got a kick out of it. This was fun to make together, too. Cool idea!!!!!!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
DE. LISH. Wow, what a classy, elegant soup (if you can call soup those things...). I made the recipe as instructed EXCEPT I only had salted butter, beef broth, and dried parsley (used 2 tsp) on hand. I should have left that tsp of salt out at the end, but it was still wonderful, just a tad bit on the salty side. I can't wait to make this again with chicken broth and a less salt. I think that all of the ingredients worked together well; the amount of dill and lemon was fine for me. Next time, I may add a little garlic to the onions and use different mushrooms. Honestly, I could have eaten the whole thing by myself, but I held back. I have some left for tomorrow. I am anxious to see how it tastes the next day. I am glad that no one in my house is a fan on mushrooms!

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Heavenly it is indeed! I had been craving egg salad for a long time and what's a better way to use up all of those Easter eggs??? I didn't have Dijon mustard or a lemon on hand. I substituted spicy brown mustard for the Dijon and 1.5 T of lemon juice for the fresh lemon. I was a little worried about the spicy brown mustard, but all turned out just fine. It was fantastic!! I served on toasted wheat bread with lettuce and had kettle chips and fresh fruit on the side. Next time I will be doubling or tripling the recipe! MMMM MMMM MMMM

Sausage and Sauerkraut Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
This is getting 5 stars for ease, taste and surprise factor - I would have never imagined that this would be as delicious as it was!!! Wow. I basically followed the recipe, but I used a regular roll of breakfast sausage, as that was all I had. Also, I only had colby/jack cheese. In addition to the cheese that gets mixed in, I sprinkled more on top. Served with bread. Next time, if I use breakfast sausage, I will be sure to drain it better and get more of the grease off - it was a tad greasy. I can't wait to have leftovers tonight!

Simple Spiced Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Where has this recipe been all of my life??!?!?! I was so impressed with the way this turned out. I rinsed the rice real good and soaked it for 30 minutes before cooking. I used chicken broth instead of water. OH. MY. GOODNESS. This is the best rice I have ever made and the smell.....oh! My house smelled wonderful! I served this with the Chorizo and Lentil Stew recipe from this site. I highly recommend this combination for an Indian-inspired meal! I will be making this rice over and over again.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I impressed both my family and friends with this one, y'all! I didn't stray toooo much from the recipe. (Well, maybe) For the meat, I marinated chicken overnight, used 1 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of cayenne (did this for the kids and for those non-spicy eaters - it still had a little kick!) and 2 tsp of garam masala. I broiled the chicken instead, flipping the pieces after about 7 minutes. Other than that, as directed. For the sauce, now....I quadrupled it! Yes, I said quadrupled! I LOVE sauce and I love to have plenty for my rice and naan. I sauteed half an onion with the jalapeno and 4 cloves of minced garlic. I used four 8-ounce cans of tomato sauce, a 13.5 oz can of coconut milk and 8 oz of heavy cream. I was a little worried that the tomato sauce would be over-powering, but it wasn't! I used 5 tsp each of cumin, paprika and garam masala and 1 tsp of salt. I served on top of spiced basmati rice and with naan. I wouldn't be surprised if I am asked to make this again next weekend!

Garlic Parmesan Orzo

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This recipe combines a lot of my favorite ingredients, so I had to give it a try! I used arborio rice since I didn't have orzo and I omitted the salt because I cooked the rice in chicken broth. Delicioso!!! I think I probably added a little more milk to make it creamier. It was a filling and comforting side dish.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Best beef stew I have ever had/made! It was snowing and VERY cold in Kansas City this weekend, so this was the perfect thing to make! I changed a few things, which only made this recipe sooooo much better. I used almost 4 lbs of meat, which I marinated in red wine and garlic overnight. In the morning, I threw it all together. I used beef broth instead of water and I sauteed a whole bunch of mushrooms with my onions. I did not have the need to deglaze the skillet. Once everything was in the crock pot, I added an entire can of tomato paste. After the 6 or so hours, I added frozen peas and two envelopes of dry brown gravy mix. It could NOT have been more perfect! This is now THE recipe for beef stew; I will be making this again and again.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
Ridiculously simple and amaaazingly delicious!!!! I am not sure if I will ever want to cook a roast any other way now. This made amaaazing sandwiches and amaaaazing quesadillas the next day. Other than adding a large, sliced onion and minced garlic instead of sliced, I didn't do anything different and don't think I ever will. THANK YOU for this amaazing idea!

Iowa Pork Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Wonderful. It made my house smell so good. I sauteed sliced onions and fresh mushrooms in olive oil before adding to the crock pot with the meat. I used a 15 oz can of beef broth instead of the water. The meat was fall-off-the-bone tender and very tasty. Served with butter and parsley egg noodles and green beans. I can't wait to have leftovers tonight!

Lemon Corn and Zucchini

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
This is the perfect quick side dish! I opted to saute veggies in butter (instead of olive oil), as directed. I love butter and it was so worth the extra fat! In fact, I might use more next time! I had some leftover yellow squash and zucchini, so I used them together. Perhaps this was a little more than 1 small zucchini. For my personal taste, I had to add just a small pinch more of dill and probably another whole teaspoon of lemon juice.

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
I will make this again...and again...and again! Like most other reviewers, I added my own flair. I cooked the chicken, onion, and garlic with about 1 tsp of each: curry, turmeric, cinammon, and cumin. I also added a splash of lemon juice. I didn't have any garbanzo beans, so I used a can of great northern beans. I also didn't have any carrots, so that ingredient was left out. Once all ingredients were together in the pot, I added a dash of ground ginger. This was served over couscous and garnished with chopped cilantro. It looked beautiful and very appetizing; I wish I would have snapped a picture! This will be on my stovetop again soon, although I may tweak the recipe and its ingredients once more to make it extra wonderful.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
What is not to like about this recipe? It is easy, quick, and DELICIOUS! Aside from adding a layer of pinto beans and using a little less sour cream, chips, and cheese, I prepared as instructed. This was a total HIT! I wish I would have made double batch. I topped each serving with a simple taco sauce and black olives.

Maria's Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
This turned out great! Only very minor tweaks were made based on personal preference and ingredients on hand. I was a little worried about "runny" rice, so I decreased the water by about 1/4 cup, When measuring my rice, I didn't measure out exactly a cup - it was just a tad over. I used basmati rice since I have 20lbs of it! I didn't have any onion, so I had to do without, unfortunately. I can't wait to make it again WITH onion! I added some minced garlic with the other spices (about one clove). I will add more next time. I didn't have a serrano on hand, but I had a jalapeno, so I used that. I love the hint of flavor it gave to the rice. I was happy with the results and will be using this recipe again. For me, it was perfect! THANKS!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
These were more like baked burritos to me, but tasty nonetheless! I had to make changes based on ingredients on hand - namely the beans (used chili beans with liquid), cream cheese (only had half the amount), and tortillas (Mission jalapeño cheddar as well as Mission herbed spinach - halved them since they are so large; I used a total of 5 tortillas). I added a can of green chiles to the filling mixture. They turned out great! I will make these again. Quick and easy!

Mexican Zucchini Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
Made as directed and it was great! No leftovers! I am not sure that I would change anything about this recipe. Perhaps add some chicken? Again, I loved it AS IS!

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
WONDERFUL! This is now my go-to recipe for lemon bars. I did a little tweaking to the recipe per other users' reviews. The outcome was awesome. Very rich and tart with a buttery crust. I received positive feedback from all who tried them!

Buffalo Chicken and Ranch Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
Fast, fresh and delicious! I sauteed some onions and garlic and took my already cooked chicken (leftovers that had been in the freezer) and stuck in the same pan to warm it up. I used a little more buffalo sauce than called for in the recipe. I used green spinach and herb tortillas. The combination of tomatoes, shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese and ranch really worked well with the meat mixture! Next time I will be adding chopped avocado. They looked beautiful and tasted WONDERFUL!

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
These were fabulous! The actual preparation wasn't as bad as I thought it would be; I just lined everything up on my kitchen table - kind of like an assembly line! I used 20 jalapenos of all different sizes and there was JUST the right amount of filling for all of them. I didn't skimp on the filling either; they were all pretty packed! Once the peppers were breaded, I put them in the freezer until "showtime". They looked awesome uncooked! The poppers fried up nicely and were definitely yummy! Next time, I am going to use more bacon. I had frozen leftovers that didn't make it to the fryer, so they went back into the freezer. The next day, I didn't want to turn the fryer on again, so I just popped them in the oven for about 14-15 minutes at 425. They weren't quite as good as the fried version, but they were still tasty!

Easy Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
This was my first gravy-making attempt and it couldn't have gone any better! All I have to say is: WOW. I used a whole roll of sausage and threw in a healthy-sized glob of butter before flouring. This is now my go-to recipe for gravy! No more envelope mixes for us!
