German Sausage Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
Wonderful recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe is the first time, and I liked it okay...but the second time, I used shredded cheddar/monteray jack blend cheese instead of swiss, and added a can of rotel tomatoes, and a can of cream of mushroom, believe it or not...really liked it (for me and the family's taste) much better. Thanks for the ideas!

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
I had to substitute extra bread crumbs for croutons, and used cayenne pepper. I also, because I just have always liked the flavor it adds to meatballs, added 2 tbs of brown sugar (adds some sweetness to the spice) It was added to our spaghetti sauce, and it was an H E double hockey sticks of a meal! Thanks for the recipe!

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.

Red Wine Flavored Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was very good...first time I used red wine in cooking anything...white, yes...I always used cream of mushroom soup after the roast has started to fall apart. I thought I would try something new since I had red wine on hand, and no mushroom soup. Nice/pleasant surprise. I added the entire pack of onion soup mix. I also browned the roast in a cast iron pot, after stuffing in w/ garlic, salting and peppering it, and adding a bit of worstershire sauce.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
Great recipe! Great Idea! One suggestion, steam the carrots unstead of boiling them, to keep in the nutrients. But, I would make these, and did it from the 'hard' stage...much better precooked before adding the sugar and butter, in the warmed pot...thanks for recipe..will be using again and again. :)

Grilled Sea Bass

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
I prepared this to go along with white beans and rice. I doubled the ingredients of seasonings~~Did not have on onion powder, used chives (freeze dried) and added two tablespoons of Durkees Grill Creations, Citrus Grill (u can find this at Sam's club-we really like it :) We drzzled the butter, but ony used enough (melted in a mircowave) to lightly drizzle all fillets. I sprayed on a little lemon juice just before removing---did not have lemon/ pepper. It was fantastic, and was a pleasure to smell while grilling. Next time, i will prepare a shrimp pasta dish, think it would mix well together ;)

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... :)

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.

Whiskey-Marinated Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
I am the author of this recipe, but I need reviewers (users) to know that you can combine these same ingredients (minus the steaks) and cook over low medium heat for 10 minutes. Add 1 tablesspoon cornstarch to thicken. Simmer an additional 4 minutes. Use as a sauce to dip steaks in while eating! OR~ I have never done it but it was suggested to me to boil the marinade that is left over for same purpose.

Flatlander Chili

Delicious. Used some of our homegrown tomatoes, diced, added a can of green chiles, and used half turkey (ground) with the lb of ground beef....very good chili, great flavor. This would also make a great slowcooker 'on the go' meal. Thank you.

Savory Vegetable Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
This was really very good! I used italian dry seasoning mix / blended w/ the flour instead of cooking it in italian dressing, and browned meat in olive oil. I really liked finding this recipe because only other way i made stews (being from south louisiana), was with a roux to start. This was much easier and just as delicious! Thanks... oh and i added a bit of cumin to the meat as well as worstershire sauce after it was browned, as well as a bit more salt and a teaspoon of dry cajun seasoning, 2 tablespoons parsley to the stew after adding the vegtables.

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!
