Buffalo Chex® Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Sorry, but this was very bland. If you want spicy chex mix, add some Frank's to the original recipe, along with extra Worchestershire. I definitely won't be making this again.

Coney Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
A great recipe. I cooked the onion and garlic with the beef, added beef bouillion to the water and nixed the MSG. Also, I increased the amounts of both garlic and chili powder. I needed to add a bit of white sugar to balance the acidity, but it was probably due to the tomato sauce I used. Thanks much, though. It was just what I was looking for. (This sauce also makes for fabulous garbage fries - pour onto hot cooked french fries and add sour cream or ranch dressing, cheese, peppers, etc. Yum!)

Steaks With Roquefort Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
Fantastic! I also cooked some sliced mushrooms in the pan before adding the sauce ingredients. The mushrooms add a lot to the flavor and the texture. A splash of red wine is nice, too! Thanks!

Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
An absolutely delicious recipe. I used Italian sausage (cooked and sliced) instead of kielbasa, added some chopped onion and a few cloves of garlic while I browned the sausage, upped the carrots, tossed in two diced potatoes and added bouillion to the water. It cooked MUCH faster than the recipe stated - the lentils were tender after about 4 hours on low (when I added tomato sauce instead of tomatoes).

Potato and Shiitake Mushroom Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
Delightful! The only things I changed were to use 2 cups of half & half instead of 1 cup of cream and 1 half & half and to toss in a handful of chopped green onions. A great recipe, and I can't wait to try it again!

Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
So, so, so delicious!!! I used four cups of chicken stock and two cups of vegetable stock, and I don't care for thyme, so I used marjoram and basil. Spun the immersion blender through it (lightly) so it still retained some texture. I can't wait to try it with several different types of mushrooms!

Cool Whipped Frosting

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
OK, so it's not the most gourmet cake topping out there, but it's pretty darn good (I love it on spice cake).

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
So delicious! I used a bottle of clam juice (in addition to the liquid from the canned clams) and also added an extra can of clams. Other than that (and nixing the carrots), the recipe was solid as is. Amazing. Thank you!

Hot Bean Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
This was a great dip to serve with "scoop"-style tortilla chips. I used about half as much cheese as the recipe called for (a shredded Mexican blend) and mixed it into the dip before baking. Also, I thought it needed a bit more hot sauce (try Frank's Red Hot) and used about 2 teaspoons. My husband and father-in-law loved it!

Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
Delish! Definitely needed a bit more garlic and more broth, though. I rinsed the sausage and blotted the bacon (which I microwaved). Also, crushed red pepper makes it legit. Great recipe!

Cream Soup Base

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
Although I cook often and love making soups, this was my first try at a cream soup. Wow. It was so easy to prepare and took no time at all! I added steamed broccoli and some shredded cheese, and my family offered rave reviews. I can't wait to try it with potatoes.

Deer Poppers

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
Yum. I had been meaning to try this for awhile and finally got around to it last night. I used beef (we had just gotten a home-raised one "taken care of" and, as usual, my husband and I wanted to try it ASAP), marinated in Wishbone House Italian dressing (absolutely amazing, by the way) and nixed the seasonings in favor of a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash. Per another reviewer, I put them in the (convection) oven at 400 for 10 minutes, then under the broiler. We will definitely be using this one again. Thanks so much!

Chicken and Sausage with Bowties

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
Very good! As suggested, I added a package of frozen broccoli florets. I forgot to add the wine, but it was still delicious. Thanks!

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
What a great, easy recipe. I seasoned the chicken with garlic, garlic salt, Mexican blend chili powder and onion powder and used my homemade salsa. Added some sour cream on the side and served it with steamed summer squash and black beans with rice. We'll definitely make this one again. Thanks!

The ONLY chocolate chip cookie recipe I'll use from now on. That's all I have to say.

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Thanks for the great idea! Had to sub worcestershire sauce for the horseradish (my family isn't big on it), but I'll definitely leave the recipe as is when I'm just cooking for me and the hubby. Oh yeah - definitely use a sharp cheddar in this recipe. Delish take on burgers!

Hot 'n' Spicy Buffalo Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
This was great! My personal tastes lean toward Frank's Red Hot, so I used it, but this was a seriously good meal. I also added some grape tomatoes and hard cooked eggs. Thanks for the recipe - it's now my go-to chicken salad.
