Wake-Up Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
Ahhh...this was so good! I followed others' advice and baked the hash browns for about 15 minutes before topping. I also added ham AND bacon (!) and a couple of extra eggs. The result was an empty casserole dish! Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Potato Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Ok, seriously...like this needs another review, right? Of course it does! We liked the original recipe a LOT. However, it is a little thick. I cut back on the flour to solve that problem. I also just boil my potatoes until tender to speed this up a little. Other than that, the flavors are WONDERFUL!

Linguine with White Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Ehhh. That's about all I have for this recipe. I had to add quite a bit of additional seasonings to get this to an edible point. It was very bland. Also, I had the same problem that others stated with the fact that this really doesn't have a "sauce." It's just kind of an oily coating. I was pretty disappointed here.

Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
Sooo good. I cut the prosciutto in half when wrapping. My entire family loves this...even the asparagus haters!

Simple Country Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
These were awesome! I used Sweet Baby Ray's sauce and apple juice instead of water to cover. My husband was upset that I only made 1 slab, so next time, I have to make 2!

Sausage Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
My family loves this. I used a few of the suggestions of others and added an extra egg, cheddar instead of mozzarella, and bake the crust for about 5 minutes before adding the filling.

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Such a simple, easy, but decadent way to eat asparagus. I have to leave the vinegar on the side for the sake of my 6 year old and toddler who is starting on table food, but it's a must for the adults! If you haven't tried balsamic, don't be afraid! It's not like other vinegars. However, it is a little rich (and it is still vinegar, after all), so use a gentle hand with it if you're not used to it. Great, great recipe!

Stuffed Mushrooms Casino

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
These are great. Use real bacon instead of bits, unless you go for that kind of thing. Otherwise, these were great as written!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This blew my other lasagna recipe away. I used mild instead of sweet sausage, a full pound of ground beef, cut the sugar back to 1 Tbsp., cut the salt back to 1 tsp., and instead of boiling the noodles, placed them in hot tap water for 30 minutes. This was excellent! Will definitely scrap the old recipe for this one with no regrets whatsoever!

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Okay, I'm sure that everyone who reads this and sees the soy sauce knows that these are not authentic. However, that doesn't mean that they are not good. The marinade for the meat, anyway. That's all I used. DH is Mexican/American and I try, on occasion, to make something psuedo-mexican that he will enjoy. Due to health reasons, I can't eat spicy food, so I have to stay away from those things, but decided to make burritos for his birthday. His grown son was here, so he handled the "salsa," and I have no idea how he makes it, so I can't share it. However, I made the beans and used this marinade for the meat. My husband was in heaven. Yes, it's not authentic, but it is good and if MY picky hubby (who swears his Abuela was a food master) liked it, something must be right!

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I took the suggestion of using thick sliced deli roast beef. My husband devoured these! The garlic mayo is an excellent touch. I did use provolone cheese instead of mozzarella because it seems to have more flavor to me. I also left out the dried oregano because of personal preference. These were awesome!

Baked Cheddar Bacon Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This is great...not much to look at and horrible for your waistline, but great nonetheless! I did follow suggestions of garlic powder and pepper. We also tried a variety of "dippers" and found that, instead of crackers, sea salt bagel chips and plain old baguette won out! My mom was even threatening to slather it on a toasted bagel for breakfast if there were any leftovers...there weren't, much to her disappointment.

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
First of all, I cringed when I read bacon bits in this recipe. Change it to real bacon (and more of it!) and this recipe is a HUGE hit! I do bake my potatoes instead of microwaving them, but I suppose that would work if necessary. I also added more cheese than called for (I always do!). This was creamy, rich, and comforting.

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
I've got to say, I've made this many of the suggested ways...breading/not breading, basting/not basting, frying/baking/broiling, wings/legs...the point is, find what version you think your family will like, and make it...they most likely will. The jewel here is the sauce. It is delicious (after cutting back the sugar to 1/2 cup...otherwise it's a little too sweet). We like these in all different versions but mostly for the same reason...the sauce is excellent!

Bacon Cheese Treats

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Don't pass these up just because of a few bad reviews. Follow some of the other reviewer's advice and use real bacon instead of bacon bits (which I refer to as a dirty word), add garlic powder to the cream cheese, and freeze for about 20-30 minutes before slicing. These are great, easy, and affordable. I've also sprinkled some with cheddar cheese, but you couldn't really taste it much because most of it melted out, so I wouldn't recommend that. However, give these a shot, making a few changes, and you'll have happy guests!

Country Fried Steak and Milk Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Loved this. As an admitted non-fryer, even I didn't mess this up! I've experimented with several different techniques and found that seasoning the meat first, then dredging in the seasoned flour makes for a very flavorful bite! I season the meat with my "house seasoning" which is salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Then, season the flour as the recipe states. Also, the reviewer that recommended butter instead of lard was spot on! This is indulgent comfort food at its finest!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This sauce is easy and excellent! I don't know what can be said about it that isn't already said...except maybe that if you like to have extra sauce for your garlic bread (like we do), double the batch! Or double it anyway...it's that good! My mom is an alfredo junkie and I thought she was going to throw all table manners out the window and lick her plate clean! It really is THAT good!

Bacon Cheddar Chive Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
These were great with potato soup...also for breakfast...and for snacking in between! I also figured, if you're going to do it, go all the way, so I added more bacon, used melted butter in place of the oil and added more cheese. Wow, these are awesome!

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
My, oh my! This was awesome! My family devours this each time I make it. I have to wonder if maybe some of the reviewers who stated that it was bland and needed more clam flavor noticed that you cook the veggies in the drained clam juice? We had no problems tasting the flavors. Also, if you cook the flour for about a minute or so before stirring in the cream, you shouldn't be able to taste the flour. I did leave out the carrots just because that's not something that we associate with clam chowder. Also, if you're in a hurry or out of potatoes (like I was), I found that frozen Ore-Ida O'Brien potatoes make a great substitution. Just don't cook them too long or they will turn to mush.
