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!

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!

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
BOOM! This was toooooo good! I seasoned the breasts first with onion and garlic powder, as well as poultry seasoning. I used fresh, smoked swiss from the deli and used a little over an ounce (about a slice and a half) per breast. I used a 1/2 cup of evaporated milk with 1 can of cream of chicken and 1 can of cream of mushroom. I like a lot of "gravy" and this was plenty! For the topping, I used one whole box of stuffing. Now, the stuffing wasn't as "done" as I had expected it to be, but I didn't care that it was a little mushy. The flavor of this dish was outstanding. Perhaps I should I have broiled it for a few minutes at the end? I served with fresh, steamed broccoli. I can't wait to make this again. I will be adding fresh mushrooms next time around!

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.

Broccoli and Cheese Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
I made this for my dad on father's day yesterday. Everyone seemed to enjoy this, including myself! It was very simple to prepare; I prepared it the night before, refrigerated it overnight and popped it into the oven the next morning. I followed the recipe as written, except for that I sprinkled green onion on the top over the tomatoes. The next time I make this, I will be adding sauteed onions and mushrooms to the broccoli/sausage mixture, as well as a little more sausage. I would like more tomatoes on the top, so either I will add more slices or dice a few romas and put them on there instead. Thanks for this great recipe!

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!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
I was very, very, VERY happy with the way this turned out! I had to cut myself off after two bowls! So COMFORTING, quick, easy, and delicious. I didn't change anything about the recipe, but I did *add* 1/3 cup of sliced baby carrots. I see this as a very versatile recipe - the add-ins and substitutions are endless. However, I was so pleased with how the original recipe turned out, I don't know if I want to try it any other way. I will be making this again very soon and will be sure to double the recipe.

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

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!

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!

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.

Eggy Veggie Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
Yum! This gets 5 stars for ease and tastiness! I did everything as directed for the most part, but was sure to drain the water off of the cooked veggies. Oh, and I used 6 eggs instead of egg substitute and added just a bit more cheese to the top. I didn't add the cheese until the very end. I beat the eggs with a little mayo and half and half.

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
So quick and easy as well as very tasty! I was a little short of 2lbs of pork, so I made up for it with chicken breast. Except for that and using more salt, I made as directed. There is no doubt that I will be making this again and double, at that!

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.

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!

Pork Chops in Red Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Will definitely make again! I used boneless pork chops. I sauteed the onions with fresh mushrooms before adding them to the meat. For the sauce, I added dijon mustard and dried basil. Next time I will double the sauce - it was delicious! I will also use another onion and maybe more mushrooms. The chops were ready a little after one hour in the oven. The smell while they were cooking was heavenly. I could NOT wait to take them out and eat!

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
This was very good - definitely tasty, but I wouldn't say the best I have ever had. I cooked everything in crock pot on low for about 10 hours while I was at work. I used baby portabellas and a whole onion in addition to the carrots (which I used about 3/4 bag of baby carrots) and celery. I was a little concerned about lack of liquid, so once everything was in the crock pot, I threw a little splash of water in there. There was lots of "juice" to work with in the end and it was quite flavorful. I added another envelope of brown gravy mix, as I like my gravies super rich and, yes, a little salty. Even so, everyone thought the gravy and veggies were perfect, despite the addition of more gravy mix. I would make this again the same way, but will probably add some peas at the end of cooking.

Mexican Lasagna Lite

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2014
I have made this twice now and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time! It would be really hard to mess it up. Do be sure to spread beans on tortillas before placing in dish and THEN do the sour cream - it's just easier. I doubled the green chiles, which resulted in EXCELLENT flavor.

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.

Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
What a great meal I was able to make! I served this with the Simple Spiced Rice recipe from this site for a Indian-inspired dinner. I used Cacique Beef Chorizo, chicken broth instead of water, added 1 tsp of garam masala and no salt or pepper. I loved the texture, taste and spice! Thanks!
