Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
This meat loaf recipe was absolutely scrumptious! If you’re looking for a traditional tasting meat loaf that’s quick and easy, this is the recipe you need. It’s very flavorful and moist, yet not overpowering to the palate – giving it a real home-cooked taste. Since I did not have on hand “buttery crackers,” or onion soup mix, I substituted with round wheat crackers and used about ¼ cup of Frenchy’s French Fried Onions (crushed) with 2 tsp of onion powder. I served it with mashed potatoes & gravy, broccoli spears and carrots with a Monterey Jack cheese sauce. My husband & I loved it. Thank you for sharing!

Great Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2005
Unfortunately, I did not like the cheese sauce. It was bland, pasty and gritty. All my ingredients were fresh, though. I just don't understand what happened? I agree with another reviewer that perhaps omitting the flour might change the texture for the better. It also made more sauce than needed. For what is worth my husband had seconds. Thank you anyway George for sharing.

Caution! This recipie is spicy!!! I only used 2 jalapenos. So if you like things hot this is the one. I added cilantro to add a little color and authentic flavor. Thanks for sharing.

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2005
This was pretty good. It reminds me of a fresh version of sweet pickles. This is good as a side salad. I used red onions just to live-up the dish with color.

Chiles en Nogada (Stuffed Poblano Chile Peppers)

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
This recipe is just out of this world! It really is an extraordinary blend of flavors. I've had a similar dish at San Angel Inn at Walt Disney World Epcot Resort. It was made with pork instead of chicken. I was told that this dish is normally served warm or at room temperature and pomegranate seeds are added for garnish. Next time I make it, I will add the pomegranate seeds - it really adds to the texture.

Mango Tango Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
This is a refreshing change from the typical salsa. I particularily enjoyed the combination of the mango taste with the garlic seasoning. VERY Nice! Thanks for sharing.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
Loved this! Awesome but good thing I took the advice of other reviewers and used half & half cream and cut the butter in 1/2 'cause it was still pretty rich. I also added sliced black olives, capers, quartered artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and a little fresh lemon juice. My husband requested I make this one a week. Yeah Right!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
I only rated this recipe two star because the flavor was very bland. I took other reviews suggestions of adding mustard (1 heaping tbsp) and about equal amount of vinegar. This definatevely made it more tasty. I will definitevely make again, but with mustard and vinegar. Chopped pickles might even make it more flavorful.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
This was very delicious and simple to make. I gave it 4 stars only because I did not think it has an authentic "Mexican" taste. Perhaps adding a little cilantro near the end of cooking time would make it more authentic tasting. Next time I will do this. Thanks for the recipie!

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
Wow, both hearty with a hint of sweetness – just delicious and healthy. I wouldn’t change a thing. To peel the tomatoes easier, I cut a shallow X in the bottom end of each tomato (opposite side of core) and dropped them in a pan of boiling water for 15 seconds and then transferred the tomatoes into a bowl of ice water. I then immediately peeled the tomatoes with a paring knife and the skin just came right off.

Outstanding! Don’t underestimate the plain look of this most delicious dessert with a crisp top layer and a flan-like inside. It was very easy and quick to make.

Crispy Chipotle Lime Tilapia with Cool Avocado Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
Very tasty dish. Enjoyed the avocado sauce as it helped to cool down the spiciness of the fish. I did however, add as suggested by other reviewers, some cilantro to the avocado sauce; giving it just a tad more favor. I also liked that the dish was light and not fishy tasting.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Excellent frosting. Sure beats the store ought ones. Has just the right sweetness. If you reduce the recipe in half (16 servings) it gives you plenty to frost a two layer cake with frosting in the middle. I quartered the recipe (8 servings) and spread cherry pie filling between lays to cut back on the sweetness.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Excellent cake! The coffee is not over powering, it gives it a nice mocha taste. It was very moist, and as another reviewer mentioned, the batter was very thin or "liquidy," which made me a little nervous, but it baked beautifully in exactly 30 minutes. I avoid spraying the edges of the pan so the center doesn't sink and let it cool in pan before removing from pan. Then put in freezer for 20 minutes before frosting.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
OMG! This dish was absolutely scrumptious and so quick and easy to make. I reserved some of the sauce for dipping and used the rest to marinate the chicken for about 30 minutes at room temperature before grilling on George Foreman grill for 6 minutes. Served chicken with steamed broccoli and a side mix green salad with walnuts, sun dried tomatoes and Gorgonzola.

Hot and Sour Tofu Soup (Suan La Dofu Tang)

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
Wow! This was very good. I rate this a 4 star because of its simplicity. I liked how the cabbage was still "crunchy" and not overdone. I was looking for a low calorie low fat soup and this did the trick. I used low fat firm tofu and fat free chicken stock b/c I didn't have vegetable broth on hand and turned out great!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I'm giving this recipe 3 star or 6/10 because the chicken, although was very tender did not absorb any of the flavor from the sauce. The chicken was actually pretty bland. Not something I will make again.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
"This is just out of this world!," remarks from my husband. Not sure if it's because I substituted the parmesan cheese with Tête de Moine (Monk Head) cheese, but this was awesome.
