Puerto Rican Steamed Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2007
I make this often but mix the taco seasoning with the cream cheese and sour cream instead of with the refried beans! Make sure you serve this in a 9x13 and with a serving spoon as this is hard to dip chips into without breaking the chips. You can alter this so many ways and it is always great and easy to prepare.

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
Great potatoes but I doubled the butter. The consistency was perfect! We ate it without gravy, but I think gravy on these would be better because the taste is very simple. Next time I make these without any gravy, I might add some other flavors to it like sour cream or garlic. Will make again and again!

Kielbasa Kale Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
My mom has been making "Kale Soup" for years but with Portuguese sausage, it's delicious, ours also has kidney beans in it. To thicken the broth, slightly mash some of the beans with a potato masher until most of the skins break open.

Washabinaros Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
This is absolutely, postively, by far, without a doubt, the BEST chili I have ever had! The reason I love it is because it does not taste like chili from a can, it is like a gourmet chili stew, so delicious, complex flavor!!! It has a nice heat to it without being too spicy. I always leave out the habanero because I cannot find them, and I do not think it needs it anyway. I use 1 TBSP of wasabi powder that comes in a little can next to the Asian foods because I cannot find paste and it will last forever in the pantry. I also drain the last 2 cans of beans because it has enough liquid at that point. I also take about 1/2 to 3/4 of one of those cans of beans, and mash them with a potato masher, this helps thicken it some more. PEPPERS...According to a book of mine, anaheim peppers offer medium heat, serrano are hot, and habanero have a searing heat.

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Great soup! I forgot to buy sour cream so left it out and it was still terrific! I think it needs a little extra salt than called for. I used Hormel ready to use bacon bits. So easy, fast and wonderful!

Pork Chops with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
This was one of, if not, THE BEST recipe I have ever made!!! I read almost all of the reviews and due to other reviewers I substituted one can of Hunt's diced tomatoes with roasted garlic, drained some of the juice, with a can of tomato paste mixed into it (instead of the tomato sauce). I used a Pinot Noir wine. I cooked for 1 hour and 15 mintues at 350 degrees, they were fork tender! Other reviewers had said theirs were tough so I would cook them as I have described, #1 recipe ever! To think I only made these because I had 2 leftover mild Italian sausage links I didn't know what to do with! Served with white minute rice.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I followed exactly but left out the seasoned salt. DO NOT skip the cooking sherry, it only costs a couple dollars and is located by all the vinegars in the grocery store. Oh, and I made 4 patties out of this because I didn't think my pan could fit 8. Will make again and again!

Easy Sausage Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Fanatastic stuffing! I would follow the directions exactly. When I made it for the first time on Thanksgiving, I took others advice and added extra broth and it was a bit on the wet side. I am making it again for Christmas tomorrow and will not add any extra broth, it is perfect as is. Actually this recipe is also on the back of the bag of the Pepperidge Farm stuffing. Only difference is that it states 1 cup of onion instead of 1 large onion, and 1 cup celery instead of 3 stalks. And cubed stuffing comes in a 14 oz. bag, homestyle comes in a 16 oz. bag so just use the whole 16 oz. bag if you get the homestyle kind. On Thansgiving I doubled the recipe and used 1 bag of each, cubed and homestyle, it was great!

D' Best Chicken N' Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This recipe is fantastic and yes, the dumplings are the flat noodle type, like those served at CrackerBarrel. The ones who rated this so low were obviously looking for a different type of dumpling (they need to try good old Jiffy, the recipe is right on the back of the box). I am a mommy so I don't like to spend all day in the kitchen so this is what I do: I buy a cooked rotisserie chicken, get all the meat off and put it in the pot along with all drippings from the container, and 2- 32 oz. containers of chicken broth (8 cups total) plus 4 cups of water with 4 tsp. of chicken boullion granules. This makes 12 cups. Then add the poultry seasoning, seasoned salt, and pepper. Boil and add dumplings. When the dumplings are about done, thicken with about 1 cup of flour mixed with 3/4 - 1 cup of cold water if you like it thicker (like me)! This recipe is very quick, as long as you have your dumpling dough prepared ahead of time and ready to go! It's a 30 minute meal from start to finish! I don't even use the veggies cooked in margarine and it tastes wonderful, it doesn't need any additional seasoning and it's nice to have it without the bones in it. The dumplings are so tender! ENJOY!!!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
GREAT! For crust I used 1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter, 1/4 cup sugar. I baked with a baking pan with about an inch of water on bottom rack and cheesecake on middle rack. No cracks. Because of other reviews I removed the water bath after baking then closed oven and let sit 2 hours which I thought would be enough. Next time I will NOT remove the water bath because I think it let all the heat escape from the oven. And I will let it sit for the full 5-6 hours because it was just a little softer in the center than it was on the outer edges. Also I used Pam cooking spray, wax paper on the bottom of the pan, and it did not stick to the pan whatsoever.

Tater Tot Hot Dish II

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Surprisingly, we loved it!!! I think it needs some veggies next time, either green beans or Veg-All mixed in with the soups, maybe add some cheddar cheese and sour cream or an extra can of soup??? I served with salad because this is nothing but meat and potatoes. I pretty much made as written except I substitued cream of chicken instead of mushroom and added minced garlic to the meat and onions. I also added the fried onions the last 20 minutes so they wouldn't burn. Like others, some of the meat did get a little dark brown (not burnt) on the bottom but I think it added more flavor to the dish and more texture too. And I like how the soups are poured OVER the tots because they did not completely cover the tots so some were crispy some were not, it was great that way! I wouldn't want ALL the tots to be crispy, it is a casserole after all! It was super easy, will make again soon with the additions and update my review!
