Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2014
Wonderful! These were great! I was planning a 4 pm dinner time, so I started preparing these about 1 pm. I put them in the crock pot @ 2 pm and stirred them once or twice and by 4 pm when it was time to eat (Thanksgiving Dinner) they were fabulous! The consistency was great, not runny or hard. Even left overs the next day were good. If you're reheating them after they've been cold, and they are hard, just add some milk. They're perfect every time! :-)

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
Very good recipe - perfect for bringing to a potluck as other reviewers have said. The only thing I would say is, like making tuna salad, cool the noodles in the fridge for awhile before assembling the rest of it. I made mine in a hurry and rushed the cooling time, and the dressing just absorbed into the noodles. I added some milk, a lot actually, before serving and it was creamy and tasted just fine. Definitely a keeper! :-)

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
Very good. I feel like this would be too rich and heavy for a morning meal, but I made mine for dinner and it turned out well.

Beef and Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
I really liked this! Ok, I switched it up quite a bit, but that's how good recipes start, with a good base and then you play around a little bit. I didn't have veggie broth so I used beef broth. I thought I had corkscrew noodles, but I didn't so I took fettuccine noodles and broke them up into bite sized pieces. I used about 1/2 of a 16oz box. I also used a 16oz can of diced tomatoes. Seasonings were garlic powder, some sweet basil, a little anise and salt and pepper. But the real twist was that I had some leftover heavy cream and grated parmesan just begging me to dump it in, so I did right at the end. Amazing! A beautiful creamy type sauce, NOT spaghetti saucy at all, with great flavor. Give this recipe a try and play around with it to suit your tastes. I think you'll find a winner for your family that's quick to get on the table. :-)

Hot Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
I couldn't really get into this recipe. It seemed really heavy and a little over the top as far as a dip goes. I love a gooey pizza as much as anybody, but this was just alright for me, nothing more. I made a pie plate amount and 1/2 was left over. And not even my family members went back for more. I won't be making this again.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
Terrific! I used boneless/skinless thighs and they were fantastic in this recipe. I usually make the soy sauce chicken when I have thighs and bake them, but this was so quick and easy and moist and delicious that my old standby recipe just got replaced! I didn't use the onion because my family isn't that fond of them, but even without the onion this recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing :-)

Garlic Mashed Potatoes In The Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Perfect for Thanksgiving. I used yellow potatoes instead of red,and I should not have. Next time I will use the red, or a firmer potato. They came out a little runny because they just weren't firm enough.Overall the dish was really good and a huge stress reliever because I didn't have to boil/mash the potatoes and try to get the turkey out all at the same time. I will make them again for next Thanksgiving.

Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
I used a 9 1/2# spiral honey ham. I put a little brown sugar on the bottom of the crock pot and put the ham in cut side down. I didn't add any liquid. I then put some more brown sugar over the top. I used the low 8 hr setting. After 3 1/2 hours I switched it up to 4 hr high setting. I put the glaze on that came with the ham, and let it go for about a 1/2 hour. I have a large size crock pot so I didn't have to use foil or anything; it fit in perfectly. The end result was a delicious ham that I would make again in a heartbeat. Great flavor, moist. And best of all stress free! :-)

Excellent! I've made this twice in one week it was THAT good. The 1st time I made it on the grill;be sure to keep a close eye on the bread or it will burn quickly. The 2nd time I made it on the stove top,and it made a wonderful sandwich.Thanks for a great recipe!

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
Excellent salad! I took this salad to Easter dinner as my contribution to the meal,and it was a big hit. The dressing was so easy to make-I used Raspberry Champagne vinegar.It gave the dressing a gorgeous red color and the sugar in the dressing really brought out the sweetness in the strawberries. I didn't used the poppy seeds, but instead used sliced almonds,which added crunch and texture.Also, I used 1/2 baby salad greens and 1/2 spinach.I've already made a 2nd batch of the dressing for my family to eat here at home, and its just great. I plan to make this again and again. Thanks for a wonderful,easy and colorful salad thats also good for you! :)

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Very good recipe. I did marinate in the red wine and worchestshire and garlic for a while before browning and that gave the meat wonderful flavor and good texture. I omitted the onion and white wine at the end,since I had used red wine for the marinating. My only issue that I had was adding the flour to the juices. It was probably an error on my part, but it didn't turn out well. I simmered it for about 1 1/2 hrs and it had a decent gravy, but there were still flour-y lumps in it. Again, probably something I did wrong but it didn't work for me. Overall the taste was great and I would make it again, but I would use Wondra flour and mix separtely before adding to the juices.Thanks for a great recipe!

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Great flavor,great combination of seasonings. I was a little unsure of the oregano,but used it anyhow. I baked the thighs in the oven instead of grilling and while they were baking, the oregano made the whole kitchen smell like pizza :) I will try this on the grill next time. Very good.

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2010
Very good sandwich; I didn't have time to slow cook so I did this in the oven for about 3 hrs @ 325,took out the meat,shredded it,placed it on buns and topped them with baby Swiss cheese.I popped the sandwiches back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese started to get soft. I served the au jus for dipping. My family loved it!

Shrimp Scampi V

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
This was a good recipe; I,like other reviewers,"punched it up" a little with some Old Bay and basil,but the flavor still wasn't really outstanding.The sauce was pretty thin near the end,so I added some Wondra flour mixed with water into the sauce,and it thickened up nicely. A good recipe,but don't expect wonderful flavor,other than the taste of the shrimp. I would make it again,but I need to ponder what ingredients would really make it tasty.

Brandied Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
This is a very good recipe. I didn't give it 5 stars because the sauce was not enough for the amount of pasta called for,in my opinion. Next time I will increase liquid amounts and see if I get a little better result. I just came back from the grocery store with a new supply of shrimp,so we'll try it again! :)
