Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2015
I had a jar of Miracle Whip already opened so I used that. It does give it an extra tang, too. I used dill pickle juice in place of the lemon juice and added a bit of garlic powder and black pepper. It's great when you can pull something like this together with ingredients you have at home, not to mention it's better than the store-bought stuff! Thanks Diane!

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2015
I upped the curry powder by about 2 tsp, and it was still not overpowering. You just have to check it yourself; even more would work. I subbed dried cranberries for the raisins, which would have been fine also. I used a Granny Smith apple, and also added a little sour cream, and a bit of white wine and hot sauce. Tried a little now, and it was delicious! Will be better after flavors have a chance to meld, I'm sure!

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2015
Easy and delicious! I sauteed the onion and added crushed jarred garlic for the last minute. I didn't have Italian tomatoes on hand so I used petite regular (no-salt) tomatoes and added extra spices. Had a few tomatoes that were on the way out, so I chopped and added those also. Per a review I read, I transferred the mixture in a couple of batches to my mini-processor, and then added back to the pot. Also added a few tblsps tomato paste, a little white wine and about a tblsp of grated parmesan cheese. I subbed regular half-&-half for the heavy cream but fat-free would have been healthier! Look forward to having over pasta or ravioli! Seems better than store-bought sauce. Thanks Kimber!

The Best Lemon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2015
I made half a recipe but knew the amounts of lemon juice and Dijon would be way too much for my taste preference. I just cut back considerably on them, and it was very good over a spinach salad. Thanks for the recipe.

Dill Pickle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2015
Delicious and very warming on a cold spring day that feels like winter! I made half a recipe but kept the amounts of pickles and juice as for a whole recipe. I liked the pickle flavor this way, and I think it would have been a little bland if I lowered those amounts, too. Per other reviewers suggestions, I added three small chopped, cooked potatoes at the end, and this was a very good call. I used onion powder and added my own salt. Had some half-n-half that needed to be used so I added that until I got the color and flavor I liked, leaving out about 1/4 cup. Thanks Heather K. for the different and tasty soup recipe!

Fish Taco Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2015
This was great with a fish taco wrap that I constructed. Spread on bottom of a tortilla, then layered shredded cabbage, salsa, chopped onion, pieces of cooked battered cod and more fish taco sauce. Easy and versatile recipe. Thanks kaylee88!

Creamy Cottage Cheese Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
I frequently add cheese to scrambled eggs but never thought to add cottage cheese! I scaled this to 1 egg, and it came out very creamy, with added volume. The chives add a delicate flavor and freshness as well. I also don't believe the cottage cheese is supposed to melt here. Thanks Kitchen Kitty for a simple and different take on scrambled eggs!

Kristi's Corn Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2015
Delicious! I made a half version, using fresh corn that I steamed. I didn't have zucchini on hand so I subbed peeled, chopped cucumber which I really liked. I didn't drain the chopped pimentos (great addition, btw) and used garlic powder. I didn't want to open a can of green chilies for a small amount, so I just added a bit of cayenne pepper in its place. The dressing was very good but just a little tart for my taste so I added a few pinches of sugar and it helped. Avocado on the side would go great with this. Thanks Kristi! This will be a refreshing salad for the summer, as you mentioned.

Barramundi With Lemon Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2015
I enjoyed this. I used buttery round crackers which I prefer over bread crumbs for fish dishes. I reserved some of the crumbs so that when I turned the fillets over after 10 minutes, I had more to add to the top. One stick of butter seemed like a lot for a sauce just to drizzle, so I halved the sauce and it worked fine, and I also added a little garlic powder to it. Nice recipe Joanne H!

Sweet and Oh So Spicy Kielbasa

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
I scaled this way down because I only had a small piece of kielbasa that I wanted to use up and enjoyed this as a light supper with brown rice. For the BBQ sauce, I used 'A Very Popular BBQ Sauce' from this site. I also used one of those individual cups of pineapple tidbits that come in the 4-pk. I opted not to use the cherries at this time. I can see how this would be a hit to serve for a crowd, using a crockpot. Very nice recipe!

Cheese Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
I scaled this down to 1/4 of the recipe and made it in an 8x8 pan. I used the precooked lasagna noodles and made into three layers. I also added a little mozzarella cheese on top of the ricotta mixture (to which I added some garlic powder). I used the jarred sauce without adding anything else to it. I covered with the pan foil and baked at 350 deg F for about 30 minutes, removed the foil and baked for another 10 min. Very good and easy!

A Very Popular BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
Pretty good for a homemade sauce, with all ingredients you'd probably have at home. I only made 1/4 of the recipe to try with a sweet and spicy recipe I was going to make. Instead of the blender, I just combined all ingredients in a small saucepan, brought it to a boil and let it cook for 1 minute. My taste preference would be to cut back on the red wine vinegar, probably by half. Next time I'll also cut back on the sugar. I used smoky paprika and added a little more. Thanks for the easy and good recipe!

Breakfast Prune Spice Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2015
This is so moist and delicious! I made half a recipe for six (6) jumbo muffins that baked perfectly at 350 deg F for 25 min. I replaced the shortening with a small cup of unsweetened apple sauce and 1 tblsp of coconut oil. I cut back on the sugar (which I normally do) by about 1/4 cup, using a combination of white and brown sugar and used 1 full tsp of vanilla. I also added the optional walnuts, plus 1 tblsp of ground flax seed. I topped the muffins with turbinado sugar and walnuts before baking which gave them a nice crunch. The spice amounts are spot-on for a delicious spice cake taste, but even better knowing there are prunes in this (but you would never know it)! I just had one with a hot cup of tea, and it was excellent! Thanks for a great recipe LauraT!

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2015
Excellent soup! I halved it, using about 1/2 Velveeta and 1/2 cheddar cheese. I first sauteed the onion in olive oil/butter and added some minced jarred garlic. I then added the broth and whole milk, added the cheeses, stirring until melted and also black pepper. I used fresh broccoli that I had on hand, microwaving for ~4 min before adding. I had it with some garlic butter croutons. What a delicious and creamy comfort food type of soup!

BBQ Spice Rub

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2015
I wanted to try this with popcorn, so I scaled it down to 1 serving and still had a little leftover. I popped my corn in coconut oil and also melted some to drizzle over the popped corn before sprinkling with the rub (in two batches). For the paprika, I used half sweet and something new for me, half smoked. I also like the sweet taste from the brown sugar and may increase the next time. Went very light with the cayenne. Look forward to trying this with various meats or even fish. Nice recipe!

Cool Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2015
Even though my outdoor temp gauge now reads 9 deg F and there's 5 ft of snow outside, I still enjoyed this cool and refreshing salad! I halved the recipe and enjoyed it as a dinner salad. I worked with what I had on hand so I had to use bottled lime juice (so no zest). I also topped it with a very light sprinkle of sea salt and cracked black pepper. Great flavors and textures. Will have to keep this in mind for the warmer weather, when it gets here! Thanks javaqueen!

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
This is one of my favorites on this site. It's delicious, healthy and comes together very quickly. To taste, I also added salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. I used stewed tomatoes, chopped kalamata olives and tossed in some capers as well. I've used cod twice, but I can see this with any fish that will hold up well, even shrimp or scallops. It seems Mediterranean to me. No baking or frying involved, one pan and so easy. I had it with some brown rice, but would be good with mashed potatoes or pasta. I highly recommend this! Thanks Bonnie!

The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2015
Delicious meatballs! Just realized I forgot to add the cheese, but I'll have it later with them. I used the ~1 lb meatloaf mix of beef/pork/veal and only 1 egg. Added just enough milk and bread crumbs for the mixture to come together and not be too moist or dry. I added a little onion powder and went extra on garlic powder. I baked them at 375 for 20-25 min and used parchment paper that really helped to absorb a lot of the grease. Great recipe Geanine!

Creamy Italian Dressing I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2015
I loved this dressing! I made a half recipe and didn't feel like taking out my mini processor so I just mixed it all in a small bowl, and chopped the onions finely. So much better than the store-bought stuff and so easy to make. Thanks Cathy...this is a keeper!

Peas and Pancetta

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2015
Nice change from the your ordinary peas. The thyme really works well here, and I also added some garlic. In a pinch, I'm sure bacon would be a good sub for the pancetta.
