Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2000
I found the trick to getting the sauce to caramelize. Lay a piece of foil just on the top of your baking dish during baking. Turn the chicken about every 20 to 30 minutes to coat with sauce. This dish requires 1 hour & 45 minutes to 2 hours baking time to complete the caramelization process.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2000
My family loves their roast this way! I shake a little worcestershire and pepper on the roast before I add the can(s) of mushroom soup....I also throw in a few cloves of garlic. I've never added water though because it makes the gravy watery. This is a great dish to serve company.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2001
I love this sweet/tangy salad. I substituted sunflower seeds for the almonds, and used golden raisins. I'm taking this to our family's Labor Day cookout. It will be a perfect accompanyment to the ribeye's and garlic bread.

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2002
OUTSTANDING!!! My DH and kids were in utter heaven eating this meal! I, too, doubled the recipe, & doubled the marinade. Then cooked the meat quickly, removed it to large bowl while I stir fried fresh broccoli, julienned carrots and onion to tender-crisp, then added the beef back to the skillet and simmered it a little longer in the sauce, thickenening it with a small amount of cornstarch. This was a fantasic one-dish meal! THANKS!!!

Baked Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2002
This was really good. It was a breeze to throw together, and was a great side dish to add to our Thanksgiving table. It paired up wonderfully with the turnip greens, and overall, everyone raved over it. Very good, simple dish. I gave it a 5-star rating.

Shrimp Linguine Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2003
After reading reviews, I decided to remove the shrimp after 1 minute of cooking. I felt this sauce recipe was a good base, but after reading other reviews, I decided to increase the amount of butter and half and half. I also added sherry and cornstarch to the sauce near the end of cooking once I saw for myself that it would not thicken on it's own. I added salt too. I returned the shrimp to the sauce and simmered it a minute or two longer at the end. It turned out really nice, but only after I played with it to get it just right.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2003
"I'm in heaven...."(singing)! I must say, this is some **GOOD STUFF!!** It tastes so much like Dairy Queen's lemonade. It's chilling in the fridge and I'm just about to treat my children to their first homemade lemonade on this hot, Southern spring day. Fantastic, delicious, 5*****stars!!!

Ham Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
This was exactly what I was looking for to use up the Easter ham leftovers. I doubled the recipe to make 8 servings, and I used 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup to cut the calories. It had a great creamy cheesy mild taste, and the combination of ham, cheese and cream of mushroom made it plenty salty without having to add salt. I added just a little black pepper and garlic, and it was perfect. This was also a very quick dish to prepare on a school night. Thanks! 5*****Stars!

Smothered Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2003
I used this recipe only for the meatballs (not the sauce) because I was looking for a good basic meatball recipe. The results were just what I wanted. The meatballs were perfect, and my spaghetti dinner was a hit. Now, I will make them again so I can try out this mushroom sauce! Thanks:)

Restaurant-Style Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2003
I'll be the first to say right off that I've never been a fan of potato salad.....it has to have a certain taste/texture for me to take even a second bite. But after I read all of the ratings/reviews for this recipe, I had to give it a try for our big July 4th family cookout. I was nervous about making it because my husband first of all normally hates the stuff, and second, I've never been what you would call a very good potato salad maker. Not only did my husband devour this potato salad, but so did all the rest of our family and guests, even a 15mo. old! Everyone was helping themselves to seconds, even thirds until the serving dish was empty. I didn't have pimento or fresh white onion on hand, so I used dehydrated minced onions, and omitted the pimento. The flavors and textures mingled together to make the perfect taste. This was so much better than I've had in a restaurant. This was some good stuff :)

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2003
I found this to be quick, easy, convenient and tasty. Although it seemed to turn out a little too runny for my liking, the juices, nevertheless were quite tasty and were great served over a bed of hot rice. I used On The Border Mild Salsa. My kids said they really liked this dish, so I may make it again in the future simply because it is a fast and very healthy, hot meal to prepare amongst our busy schedules.

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
What an easy, delicious, low cost/LOW CARB pork chop dish! I scaled my recipe to 6 for my slightly larger family and it worked out great. I also added a little of both chicken & beef boullion granules to my water (as suggested by others), otherwise following the recipe to the "T." My family is very pleased! As a side, I also prepared the "Baked Whole Cauliflower" recipe from this site..... it was the perfect accompanyment! Thanks!

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2004
Lol.. my kids walked into the kitchen and saw this big thing I had just pulled from the oven and said "Mom, What's THAT???" They love their cauliflower, and boy did they inhale it. After they finished, they all ran up to the stove to see if there were any "seconds"... but it was already gone. I steamed mine in the microwave, and it turned out great. Had a little trouble getting the crumb mixture to stick to the surface, just had to work with it a little. I served it as a side to the "Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops" recipe on this site. It made a very nice family meal.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

That WAS some dang fine gravy! Next time I'll double the recipe and up the size of the meat patties. I might also try using ground sirloin. Thank YOU! My family is very happy!

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2005
This is a very delicious shrimp recipe, and I rated it a 5 even though I kinda messed it up (I will make again). What I did wrong: After marinating, I skewered alternating shrimp with onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Adding veggies to the kabobs is where I messed up because it caused the shrimp not to lay flat on the surface of the grill and it cooked unevenly. As a result, I had to cook the kabobs longer for total doneness, so some of the shrimp were tough and overcooked, whereas others were undercooked. Next time, I will skewer shrimp on their own skewers. The veggies were a hit, so they'll get their own skewers, too.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2005
It was pretty good. My party guests enjoyed it with chicken flavored crackers and tortilla chips. It was a quite oily on top just coming out of the oven, but I blame the amount of mayonnaise for that. The dominant flavors in this dip were by far the garlic and parmesan - could hardly tell the crab meat was present. I'll probably try this recipe again in the future, so I'll make sure to use 4 smaller-sized cloves of garlic (or just cut back) because the garlic compliments it, but not in overpowering amounts. I'll definitely cut back on the mayo and double or possibly triple the amount of crab meat.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
Delicious! The whole family enjoyed. I divided the mozzarella into 3 parts so there would be some left for the topping. The lasagna was just a little dry. I must have simmered my sauce too long and lost the moisture it needed. I should have replaced the liquid that evaporated or added extra to it. This was a sweet sauce, but for those who like a more robust flavor, try stirring in about 1/4 teaspoon (or just a small squirt) prepared mustard to your sauce at the end. It will blend with the brown sugar and give the sauce a tangy kick. I will make this again. It was very good.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2005
This was way too rich and thick. My husband and kids claimed they liked it, but it was so rich that it made me ill. I won't make this again.
