Sloppy Joe Biscuit Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
Lots of modifications: Due to what i had on hand, and knowing what I do and do not like... I used a large jar of sloppy joe prepared sauce, one teaspoon of minced garlic, one half chopped bell pepper, and I poured prepared bisquick (made with milk and 2 eggs) on top of the cheese mixture, instead of using prepared biscuits. Good recipe for the young ones :) thanx.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I followed recipe with the following changes after sampling while preparing, to suit my tastes. I didn't use flour, or ketchup. I made two cups of gravy and mixed it with the ground beef and the carrots before putting it in the casserole dish. IT went FAST. Inlaws, husband and babies ate it up. Great wholesome meal with everything right there in one dish. Thanks.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
Used what i had on hand, substituted chicken~jalepeno sausage for chicken, and regular cream of mushroom soup (1/2 of the can)~added a teaspoon of cajun seasoning, and some sliced black olives. I used bowtie pasta instead. To give it a little more of an italian flare, I added one can of diced italian tomatoes, and it was fantastic :)>

Roasted Cajun Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This was very, very good, and very, very easy! Only change I made was adding more salt after they were done, and out of the oven. Thanks! OH, and I didn't have green onions, so I used some basil instead...great flavor.

Merwin's Shrimp Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
I am from, born and raised, south louisiana. So, I grew up on things like gumbo and stews. This was a very, very good gumbo recipe with the following modifications to suit our tastes and from what I had on hand. Instead of smoked sausage, I ALWAYS use andouille sausage (enhances gumbo flavor), did not use chicken or green onions. I added one teaspoon of seafood boil (crab boil), and two teaspoons of tigers sauce. I do not put thyme in our gumbo, and do not add file to the pot....I allow those who like file to add it to their bowls...Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Excellent recipe just as is. Very kid friendly and husband loved it too :)...said he was eating it slow so he didn't eat too much :). If you are entertaining and not worrying about fat, I suggest using 2 packs of cream cheese ( can use lower fat version) for a more rich, creamy dessert.

Crispy Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
GREAT. My dish was made with flounder filets. I get them from Sam's Club, and they are nice if you have never got them there. I did as other's said. I used a little flour before dipping in egg mixture (in which I used spicey mustard). I added parmesean cheese (1/2 cup) and two tablespoons of cajun seasonning to the instant garlic mashed potatoes....excellent, and will be making again.

Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
This was great...I did use Tiger sauce, as the hot sauce, has good flavor and not just 'hot.' Also, being a cajun gal, I added 1 teaspoon of tony's cajun seasoning to the shrimp when cooking them. I used fresh mushrooms instead of brocolli, and whipping cream instead of half and half...GREAT!

Shrimp Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
This was good but can be made better by tweaking it some...sorry. Here are some adjustments I made to suit our tastes, and the end result was delicious. First of all, to save time and stove space, I cooked rice in microwave while preparing other foods. (used one cup uncooked rice) I didn't use celery, used 1/2 yellow onion, one half red, and 1 bell pepper. I added a little teriyaki sauce and a teaspoon of soy sauce to sesame oil when I stirfried my shirmp. When putting all of them together at end of cooking, the vegetables, shrimp, and rice...I used 1/4 cup of soysauce and 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, and mixed well...hope this helps.

Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
We made this last night for Christmas guests. Everyone who tasted it loved it. I did not have or use peanuts, used pecans instead (which I like), and used sesame ginger dressing instead of olive oil. I can guarantee that we will be making this again soon...healthy and tasty! thanks!OH, and to add more for the kiddos, I suggest added some craisens or raisens... :)

Parmesan Orange Roughy

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I thought this was very simple, and very good...but I added some cajun seasoning to the cheese and crumb mixture to give it some zing, and a little yellow mustard and a bit of salt to the egg/milk mixture. I used white fish, lemon fish for this since that is what i had on hand...I suggest broiling the fist for the last 3 minutes or so, to nicely brown the top.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
How someone can find fault with this recipe, I don't know...I thought it was fantastic. I browned the beef and then added it with all the other ingredients to the slowcooker,with a setting of 3 hours. IT was really very good. Thanx.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
WEll, I was very surprised how much I liked this salad! I wanted to try something different, and though "cranberries and pecans in a chicken salad? That is different." Well, I really liked the change and I will be making his over the holidays, and in between. I have twin toddlers, and they liked it too~ good, healthy salad for them :)>

Pasta Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
This was a good recipe~ was looking for a "lasagna" recipe,but wanted to use penne pasta instead, since it is what I had on hand. These are the additions and changes that I made (only to suit our taste on experience/ not because of any possible flawsn seen in your recipe). I added 2 tablespoons of the zesty dry italian seasoning to the meat, as well as fresh sliced mushrooms, while it browned.... and then fresh sliced zucchini. I mixed some of the pasta sauce with the noodles (3/4 lb) of penne, laid it at bottom of baking pan. I then spread the ricotta mixture on top of that, put remaining meat sauce as next layer, and lastly the mozzarella with a few shakes of parmesean .

Cucumber Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This was great! First time I use avacados other than in quacamole salad, or garnish. Nice sweet/tangy flavor. I didn't have red wine vinegar, so I used an italian vinagarette, and used 2 full teaspoons of dill weed in place of fresh dill.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
I thought that this was a good recipe~like the flavor comes from the spices and not fat (healthy ;) ) It was easy to make. for sure. I was surprised, though, thought that it would have been a bit more tasty, from the reviews that I have read. Mine came out to be more of a soup. I didn't have the tomatillos?(substitued more diced tomatoes) and wonder if that would have made it even better...??? I added two chicken boullion cubes and 1/4 cup of worstershire sauce....Will be making this again.
