Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2004
Very good, great to skip the crust. However I think it could be made with a little less cheese, and I added 2 more eggs.

Easy Cajun Grilled Veggies

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
This is very good for those who like spice. I grill them well, since I hate squash & zucchini "steamed." A nice way to add zip to the usual veggies.

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
This was good but fairly time-consuming with all the ingredients. I think it can easily be customized to suit one's taste. I made it with cherry tomatoes which were the best part! I lookj forward to making it again when my cherry tomato plant produces this year!

Dill Sauce for Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
This is a great idea for a different sauce. I did it using my own proportions, "to taste," and I thought it was much better than plain mayo.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2003
This is a good recipe if you don't know how to cook. Otherwise, it's just easy but not that great.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2003
These were actually pretty good, but I only give this recipe 3 stars since the time & temp are way off! Too hot & too long. I had to play with it a lot to save them from burning. Next time I will try them at 400 degrees for a half hour, and turn them halfway through.

Carrots in Dill Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2003
I made this a little differently than the recipe directs. I omitted the sugar & used dried dill weed instead of dill seed. Carrots & dill are a good combo - I am curious how the dill seed would taste so maybe I'll buy some & try it.

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2003
Although not jambalaya fans, this recipe was pretty good for us. We skipped the green pepper & celery, but added some ground thyme, as well as increasing amounts of worcestershire & hot sauce. This is very much a rice dish, so as long as you like rice you should be fine. When reheating you definitely need to add more chicken broth or it would be too pasty.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2003
Although easy to prepare, this recipe isn't worth the time involved. The flavor of the tips ends up being rather plain, and there is just too much "sauce" - which is actually more like just beef broth. It definitely needs to be thickened more than the recipe directs.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2003
The reviews are right! It is too salty, even for a salt fan like me. And the ranch dressing does cook off. All in all not a good combination.

Garlic Top Sirloin Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
Although this came out pretty good for pot roast, it was to much work in my opinion. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and browned the meat first, which I do think helped. I also added more spices: thyme, onion powder, etc, and beef broth instead of water. I cooked on low 8 hours & everything was done perfectly. I guess if you have lots of time in the morning to prepare this, then you'll like this recipe.

Marinated Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
This is quite easy and results in a "different" flavor as advertised. I wouldn't really call it barbecue because of the lack of spices, but definitely a nice tangy sauce.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2003
This was a fair amount of work to prepare without much of a result. I don't know, the garlic tasted terrible cooked this way - it got that "funny" taste. I probably wouldn't go to the trouble of making this dish again, but if I did I would omit the garlic entirely. Maybe different spices could be used in its place, along with the parmesan.

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
My husband normally hates kielbasa, but he LOVED this! I do have to mention I made some changes: I used 1 pound turkey kielbasa, cut the sugar way down to 1/4 cup at most, and added worcestershire & a little onion salt. My husband was glad it wasn't spicy - the horseradish does not stand out, but it subtly flavors. I cooked it for about 6 hours on low in my slow cooker, and the kielbasa came out perfectly cooked, and the sauce was thick enough for us. I will say that the way I made it you wouldn't call it "candied" since I cut down so much on the sugar, so it came out differently than the original recipe intends, but much better for those who aren't big on sweet!

Lemon Horseradish New Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
When I started by making the sauce, I was very optimistic as it smelled so good! I used cubed yukon golds & baked according to directions. Unfortunately, they didn't taste as good as I'd hoped. My husband even tried to ask politely, "What are these potatoes flavored with??" Maybe it would be better to roast potatoes normally & then mix with this sauce at the end?

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2003
This turned out good with a few enhancements as suggested by other reviewers. Using chicken broth instead of water helped alot, along with frying the potatoes beforehand with additional seasonings. My husband does not like cabbage but he ate around it & seemed to like the rest. I thought the cabbage was very good! (Although I bought the smallest head they had at the store, and I could barely use half of it - any more would not have fit in my large skillet.) You could easily use kielbasa in this recipe also.

Orange Spiced Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
I used 1/4 cup soy sauce & 1/4 cup O.J. for the marinade, and it came out good, yet the soy sauce flavor was definitely more pronounced than the O.J. I marinated about 5 hours and it was very flavorful. I did add some red pepper flakes, and I think I'll add even more next time.

Coq au Vin

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2003
This was surprisingly bland! I even added more boullion than called for, and it still needed a LOT of salt. The veggies were the tastiest part, the chicken & sauce were blah. I guess if you make it using real bacon it would improve the salt level & taste better. Apparently there is no good shortcut for Coq au Vin.

Bilo Walter's Easy Herb Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2003
I didn't have any carrots onhand, so I made this without. A pretty good side dish.

Toasted Party Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
I made it with Wheat Chex, Cheerios, pretzels & peanuts. I poured the melted butter & worcestershire mixture over & then shook seasoned salt, celery salt, garlic powder & onion powder over all, each time I stirred. It had just the right amount of flavor.
