Unstuffed Cabbage Roll

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2015
I added 1 tsp. of paprika, 1/4 tsp. of cayenne, and a couple pinches of Italian seasoning to this recipe and we thought it was pretty good. Using savoy cabbage gives it a slightly different flavor profile that we liked as well.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
These are amazing---buttery, rich, and oh-so-chocolate-y! I add 1/2 tsp. of baking powder just to give them the slightest bit of elevation, otherwise I follow the recipe exactly. Highly recommended for brownie lovers!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
The first time we made this we liked the taste, but it was definitely on the salty side. We have since cut the salt in half and it comes out perfect every time!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
I tried this recipe when the wife requested pancakes for dinner and we were out of Bisquick. They were sensational! No more Bisquick pancakes for us!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
I have to pour off some of the liquid each time I make this, but it's still delicious! I use Fuji apples, turbinado sugar, and add a pinch of ground cloves, which really puts it over the top!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Without question one of the best potato soup recipes I've tried. I saute the onions and celery in a little butter until soft before adding the other ingredients as I don't want crunchy bits of celery in the finished soup. Smoked ham works best, and you can certainly add more than 3/4 cup. We like to sprinkle a bit of shredded cheddar on top, but it's by no means required. Very tasty, very filling, and an excellent choice on a cold winter day!

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I'm always skeptical of "label" recipes but this one is very good. I added much more basil than called for, and used Pecorino Romano for extra zing. I served it with a green salad, some crusty garlic bread, and a tasty Australian shiraz. My wife and guests all loved it.

Spaghetti Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
This is pretty good but nothing special, and there are certainly any number of ways it can be tweaked. But my wife loves it, so I make it often.

Stir-Fried Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
As a base recipe that can be adapted to fit individual tastes, this is very good. I use just one green pepper and eliminate the carrots. In their place I add one zucchini and one yellow squash diced. I double the ginger and soy sauce, and even add a little extra soy sauce to the finished dish. Instead of six green onions, I just cut up whatever is in the bunch---the more the better. I replace the water with chicken broth. I use peanut oil as it can be gotten really hot without burning. And I usually add a pinch or two of red pepper flakes to the oil for extra spiciness. I serve it over a pile of good (long-cooking) brown rice and it is absolutely delicious. It's so good you might want the leftovers for breakfast! Highly recommended!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
This is fabulous! A bit garlicky and just the right consistency. I may try sour cream as others have suggested but this recipe is just fine the way it is. My family certainly approves!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Have made this several times and it always comes out great. We use a chocolate stout for the beer as it adds a wonderful flavor. It's definitely best when made a day or two ahead as the flavors continue to develop. Highly recommended!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Outstanding recipe! I use Italian panko instead of regular breadcrumbs and add a tbsp. of half and half to the meatballs to keep them moist, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly. My family loves this and asks for it often!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
Very fluffy and very sweet. I used half-and-half instead of milk for extra richness. We love it!

Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
This has become a favorite in our house. Like others, I use lemon cake mix and add grated lemon zest to the frosting, but otherwise follow the recipe. The result is a light, cool, and refreshing cake. Excellent!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
With some slight modifications, this has become one of my most requested dishes. I sauteed some mushrooms and added to the sauce. I also added a can of golden mushroom soup, extra splashes of milk and wine, and a couple pinches of red pepper flakes. Otherwise followed the recipe and it was tasty, fork-tender, and the sauce is great with mashed potatoes.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
My wife says these are the best cookies I have ever baked. I eliminated the tbsp. water as it is completely unnecessary, and rolled in Sugar In The Raw. Absolutely scrumptious!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
This is an outstanding recipe! As others have stated, it's all about the roux. The darker the roux, the more intense the flavor. I get mine almost black, whisking CONSTANTLY to avoid burning. Be extra careful not to splash it as it could cause a serious burn (I've done this!). I also used andouille sausage, which I cooked in the oven with the chicken, and Tony Chachere's creole seasoning. Serve with Grandma's Buttermilk Cornbread, also on this site, for an exquisite Cajun meal. Yummy!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
Excellent recipe! We start with five strips of bacon, then cook the onions and garlic on low until they're nicely carmelized. We also use more potato than directed which helps thicken it a bit. We've tried using fat-free half-and-half and it comes out quite well. You can definitely impress your dinner guests with this one!
