Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2002
I am not a salmon fan and I thought this soup was great. My husband really liked it as well.

Red Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Wonderful roast recipe. This is far better than the average pot roast. Off the charts good! The carrots and potatoes were also great and soaked up lots of flavor from the gravy. I made this in the slow cooker. Added the veggies the last two hours of cooking. I REDUCED the liquids and had far more liquid than I needed when the meat and veggies were done. I also had a little bit of hot Asian chili sauce that was also a sweet sauce so I used that up instead of the sugar and chili powder. Threw in a beef boullion cube, too. Very tender and delicious. I didn't add the flour to thicken the gravy. The leftover meat makes great sandwiches. The leftover carrots are delicious cold.

Caramel Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I have never made bread pudding before. I had a stack of leftover waffles in the freezer and used them instead of bread. Delicious. Served the pudding warm with a scoop of ice cream.

Sweet Russian Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
My update: Had leftovers in the freezer and just ate a bowl for lunch. Wow -- so good. original review: This is great soup. Full of flavor. Delicious. I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but didn't veer far. Just minor changes based on what I had on hand. Added a little thyme and marjoram. I did dice a large sweet potato and added it with the cabbage. After reading that some people found it too sweet, I started with about 1/8 of a cup of sugar. I ended up using almost 1/2 cup. My soup was not sweet. The sugar and vinegar just brightened the flavors.

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Thanks for this great idea. I like it better than tuna salad and I love tuna salad. I think it is better to not expect it to taste like tuna. It doesn't. I made it like I would make tuna salad which is very close to this recipe. I used about 3 TBS. mayo and 1 TBS. sweet pickle juice. No mustard. I added 2 short ribs of chopped celery and 2 chopped hard-boiled eggs along with 1 TBS. of chopped sweet pickle. I grated in a bit of onion because I had no green onions. The best addition for me is 1/4 teaspoon of mild curry powder. YUM! Try it in your tuna salad, too. Great little flavor kick. I usually don't use onion or salt in tuna salad, but they were very good in this recipe.

Pauline Werner's Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Just the recipe I needed to make a hearty stew for a cold night. This stew is the kind I grew up loving. Lots of flavor and a nice thick broth. Perfect with cornbread or any good bread. This recipe doesn't need any changes but I like to use a can of beef broth with the water, some thyme, and a can of chopped tomatoes.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Love this recipe. So delicious prepared exactly as posted and yet so perfect for adding whatever I feel like on any given day. Tonight I added green pepper and diced carrots. I topped each bowl of this luscious creamy soup with a little cheddar, some green onion and a sprinkle of chopped bacon. I served this with thick slices of whole wheat bread that I buttered and topped with grated cheddar and then toasted in the oven. Heaven on a cold, icy day!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
After many years of making cornbread, this is now my favorite cornbread recipe. Buttermilk makes all the difference. I do usually reduce the sugar. But with out without the sugar reduction, this is a great cornbread recipe.

A Pad Thai Worth Making

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
delish -- really liked the chili sauce in this. I used pork for the meat. I did add 2 tablespoons of tamarind sauce and a little peanut sauce. I didn't have any oyster sauce. Also used a little sesame oil with the vegetable oil. Served a simple green salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar first and then served the pad thai. Wonderful meal.

White Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
This is what I'm taking to the next potluck I go to. Delish. Everyone will love them and they are so easy. I used yellow cake mix because I had one, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup milk as per other reviewers. Will try as per original recipe next time.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
WOW -- a real jewel of a pizza sauce. I didn't have any tomato paste so I used tomato sauce and a couple of tablespoons of water. I didn't have any anchovy paste, either. Can't wait to try it with that. I zapped the whole concoction in the microwave for about 40 seconds to help the flavors blend and did let the sauce sit. I made a large pizza and had sauce left over. We like our pizza with a thin layer of sauce.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Very good. Easy. My husband could not get enough of these potatoes. I made no changes at all except I baked them at 400 for an hour and turned the oven down to 350 for another 20 minutes. I should have checked at an hour -- I think they were probably done. An update: I decided to make this today and found I had no chicken broth in the house. I used vegetable broth and about 1 1/2 teaspoons of chicken bouillon granules. I omitted adding any more salt. Was very good. I have some mushroom broth I think I may use next time just to see how that works out. But with no chicken bouillon.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Best flavor of any salmon or fish cake. The buttery onions are wonderful in this. I like that there is no dill. I do not like dill. My canned salmon didn't have 3/4 cup of liquid in it - had about 1/2 cup. I had to add more cracker crumbs as it was still too much liquid. I have no intention of changing much about this recipe but will tinker with the liquid a little. I think I will try it with one egg and only one tbsp. of butter when sauteing the onion. I did use oil instead of shortening. If I have time, I like to put fish patty mixtures in the frig for about 30 minutes before I make the patties. Makes it easier to form the patties. I tried the lemon sauce from this site that other reviewers recommend, but for my household we voted that tarter sauce is better with the patties. But try the Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties as it makes a nice change and is so simple to make.

Mustard Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
Loved it. I took some tips from other reviewers. I used Dijon mustard. I had more fish so I doubled the recipe and added 3 TBS. of butter plus 1/4 tsp of dried basil. I also added even more of the cheese, but I won't next time. I used about 1/3 cup fresh bread crumbs and broiled the fish the last couple of minutes. I will try it next time without the butter because the mustard and herbs are what really give this recipe its zing.

Super Al's Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
Perfect cocktail sauce. I love that the recipe is for a small portion. I used creamed horseradish and a tad more lemon juice. I bet it is even better with the fresh grated radish. It was great on the fried shrimp and also great on the french fries.

Fried Rice with Cilantro

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
What a good recipe and exactly what I was hoping to find. I wanted a Thai style fried rice. This was delicious and I took a cue from another reviewer who said the exact amount doesn't matter. I used diced pork and some turkey bacon as well as 3 cups of rice. I added the bacon with the cilantro, onion and basil at the end. I also used a little sesame oil and more soy sauce and fish sauce than the recipe indicated. I threw in some diced carrot when I added the rice. I sliced some cucumbers and quartered some roma tomatoes to serve along side the rice. I will say that, like most ingredients, the quality of the fish sauce makes a difference. I once bought a very cheap brand and it ruined the dish I was making.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
Could not improve on this recipe. Moist, tasty muffins that came out great and were easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly other than that my two bananas made for just a teeny bit less than one cup.

Jackie's Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
Outstanding soup. So flavorful. This is one of the best soups I have ever had. I made only a couple of very minor changes based on what I already had on hand. But nothing that changed the soup. I used a red bell pepper and I also threw in some shredded carrots to use them up. I made this soup yesterday to serve today. I added the pasta and spinach today. I served it with a splash of lemon juice and the Parmesan.

Mini Frittatas with Quinoa

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
I'm so glad I tried this. So easy and delish. Great recipe for lots of variations. I like 1/2 cup of onion or red bell pepper as a substitute for the zucchini.
