Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
my husband doesn't really like salmon;i love it. typically, when I want salmon, i make him tilapia (broiled tilapia parmesan). this recipe may have changed that. he tried my salmon last night (after finishing off his tilapia) & he actually told me the next time I cook this salmon to make him one. that must tell you something about this recipe!!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
This was sooo good that I wanted to have some for breakfast this morning(but I did maintain self control). I added a half pound italian sausage to the ground beef and an extra can of italian style diced tomatoes with a splash of red wine. I also made 3 layers using 3 noodles per layer. And we love cheese so there was lots of it. I refrigerated it for 2 days before cooking. OH SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! Tip: instead of cooking the noodles, soak them in hot faucet water for a while and then layer. They absorb the water and then cook in the oven. Also, put a little sauce on the bottom of the pan, it helps with moisture.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
If you like thin mints, you will love these. They are so much better because they are soft. I made them according to instructions, but I did add 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract to the dough. They baked for exactly 8 minutes and were perfect. I used the Andes mints for the frosting and it left a pretty green swirl on the top.

Double Layer Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I am not sure where I went wrong. I followed the recipe, but this pie was not what I was expecting after reading the reviews. We found it to be edible and that's it. I guess it's just personal preference, but we each ate one piece and the rest has been in the refrigerator for a few days. I guess it's time to get rid of it by now.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
My family came for dinner last night and this was what I served. I previously cooked it in the crock pot for about 8 hours (i had a 7 lb pork shoulder roast). when i took it out, i didn't have much shredding to do because it fell apart when the fork touched it. i put it in the refrigerator with about a cup of the liquid. the next day i mixed it with Grant's Famous Midnight Grill BBq Sauce and put it back in the crock pot for 3 hours. we had fabulous sandwiches and i served it with extra sauce on the side. awesome and easy recipe.

Grant's Famous Midnight Grill BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
i really like what this recipe did for my bbq sauce. i don't like many bbq sauces because i don't care for the liquid smoke flavor. but i started with the jack daniels sauce and after refrigerating for a day, this was really good...it mellowed out the liquid smoke flavor and left a good spicy sauce.

Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
nice change for a salad. after reading the reviews about it being too oily, here are my suggestions. first, mix the vinegar, sugar and oregano in a bowl. i measured a 1/4 cup of olive oil and only drizzled it into the vinegar while whisking. when the consistency looks good to you, taste test it and then add either more oil or a splash or 2 more vinegar. I did not use the full 1/4 cup of oil, but that is my personal preference. then add salt & pepper if you like. also, many reviews talked about there being too much dressing and the salad is just sitting in it. once the tomatoes sit in the refrigerator, they release juices...this causes there to be more liquid in the bottom of the bowl, you will have some liquid even if you use a very small amount of dressing. this recipe really is a 5 star for taste, however, due to the instructions i give it a 4.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
we were very impressed with this recipe. i even added the whole 8oz of cream cheese before I realized I was only supposed to add half. So to compensate, I added a little extra alfredo. I added a little more of the mozzerella and parmesan too. I put the dip in individual ramekins for my guests and served with a basket of sliced french baguettes. I also topped each ramekin with some mozzerella before baking and sprinkled them with some paprika for garnish right before serving.

Wylma's Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
Nice change for breakfast. I didn't have any green onions, so i skipped those. I think it would have been nice with them but I don't think I would add the whole cup. The only other changes I made were to cut some calories. I used reduced fat cream cheese, replaced half of the eggs with egg beaters and used skim milk. It was more egg-like and I was expecting more of a bread consistency, but it was still very good. It makes alot. I made 2 loaves and 9 muffins. (if you make muffins...don't fill it too far, when it rises the egg spills over the top)UPDATE: Because it is titled "bread" I(without thinking) treated it as a bread and stored it in ziplock bags and plastic wrap and put it in the bread box--2 days later it was DISGUSTING!!!(rotton & molded) Store this in the refrigerator.

Deep-Fried Turkey Marinade

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
We loved this recipe. this was our first time to make the turkey for thanksgiving and we have tough critics in my family. the only thing we did different was we brined the turkey for about 14 hours before marinating it with the rub for about 12 hours. My uncle (the self proclaimed king of the turkey) had me write the recipe down before the meal was over.

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! This was such a delicious and easy recipe. I only used half the feta b/c my husband doesn't really care for it, but without knowing what was in it, he agreed it was was good so next time I will use the whole amount of feta. I also used extra spinach and next time will use a little more. I literally threw this together in no time and then added some medium shrimp during the last few minutes. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS MEAL!!!

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
even after reading the reviews, I was still suprised at how easy it was. I have never made a roll-up before and I had no problems with this one. I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted egg beaters for the eggs. I made my icing first and refrigerated it while making, baking and cooling the roll-up. I was looking for a dessert to take for thanksgiving and I believe I will take this one.

Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
I popped a few bags of microwave popcorn and added it to the marshmallow mix until it looked like enough. These were really good. I had some left over melted caramel and chocolate from making caramel apples, so I drizzled the popcorn balls with caramel and chocolate. very good.......

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
this was good. I used mahi-mahi since it was the only fish I had. A good quick, healthy dinner. My husband really liked the dill sauce and I used low fat mayo & sour cream.

Rocky Road Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
These tasted great and get 4.5 stars for that. however, they didn't look pretty. after i dipped my apples in the caramel and got the excess caramel off i rolled it in the nuts but once i sat them down. the caramel and nuts slid to the bottom of the apple. so i ended up with a pile of caramel nut goo around the bottom. I was planning on giving these to co-workers for halloween, but not now.

these were wonderful. The gravy was a good consistency and the blue cheese was a good compliment to the pork.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
Wonderful recipe. I seasoned my chicken with the Taco Season I recipe from this site (way better than the store bought). I poured 1/2 a cup of salsa in the bottom of my crock pot for moisture and then placed 3 frozen seasoned chicken breasts in it. I cooked this on low for 5 hours. I halved the recipe to begin with and I had to make changes but only b/c of what I had on hand. I used lite sour cream and less than called for since it was all I had. I also used low fat soup and I had very little onion,so I used what I had and then added a tsp onion powder. To this I added black beans(no chili beans in the cabinet) and a can of drained mexi-corn. Because so many reviews said the tortillas turned out soggy, I used a couple extra to make sure the strips were layered thick enough. I also mixed 1 cup of cheese and 1 cup 2% cheese together for a few less calories. Baked as directed in an 8x8 pan and it turned out a fantastic meal. Served simply with a side salad. Delisious, filling and no soggy tortillas.
