Cranberry Brisket

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
I've made this several times in the crockpot, and it's always a winner. This same sauce is also good baked on chicken. I bet it would even be good with pork. Very versatile and delicious!

Simple Ranchy Breaded Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Pretty good! I used a few changes as per some other reviews - dredged in flour, then dipped in egg, and then into the breadcrumb/ranch dressing mix mixture, and then fried in olive oil just because it was quickest. Next time I'll try baking it in the oven. We didn't find it overly salty, and my husband is usually very salt sensitive.

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Delicious!! My 15 year old called this "brilliant". (My 8 year old had to be bribed to eat 3 small pieces.....) I did the bamboo skewer thing, and added a quick sprinkle of granulated garlic along with the kosher salt, pepper and olive oil. Fresh garlic would've been even better. Gave it right around 5 minutes, and think possibly another 30 to 45 seconds would've been perfect. Still.... YUM!!

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I really did change this up quite a lot, but I'm sure it would've been very good as written. I used bone-in chicken parts, made the coating with extra seasonings (garlic powder, parsley, paprika and more Lawry's), and did the 3 step technique so many other reviewers recommended (flour, egg, cracker mixture). Then, arteries be damned, I did the rest of as a traditional fried chicken since they were bone-in pieces - about a cup of Crisco, browned it on both sides, then cooked covered for about a half hour on med-low heat. Removed the cover and back up to higher heat to crisp up at the end. Very good!

Quick and Easy Mexican Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Very good, quick and easy - and flavorful. I used granulated garlic instead of minced, and upped the spice rub considerably. A pinch would not have done it - I probably had over 1 tbsp. of seasonings altogether. Otherwise, made just as written.

Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Very good and fairly easy! I used leftovers from a store-bough rotisserie chicken, sauteed the onion with some sliced sweet red peppers in a little olive oil, and used both cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese. I served them with salsa and sour cream and 3 out of the 4 of us loved them.... My 8 year old loves nothing, so no big surprise!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
Necessity/mother of invention and all that! I've made this recipe before (must've forgotten to rate it), and followed Corrine's changes - excellent! Yesterday, with a sick child at home and a package of stew meat to use up, I had to be inventive... and it was excellent again. I had no beef broth, but did have an open box of vegetable broth to use up. I added about 1 1/2 packets of beef seasoning from Ramen packages, which I was afraid would only add salt, but did seem to add some beefiness. I also didn't have the McCormick Beef Stew packet (have never bought that) so I added in a package of Lipton's Onion Soup Mix. No red wine, so I used white. More garlic, full TBSP of worcestshire, and all the other changes as per Corinne (browning the beef, etc.), and it was so darn good that my family polished off 2 pounds of meat! It was not overly salty as I had worried with all those soup/seasoning packets. I did thicken the sauce a bit at the end as I had added a bit of extra broth and it was very thin. I had a LOT of veggies and sauce leftover with no meat... so guess what's in the crockpot this morning? :-) I'm cooking more meat to add in, and I think I'll throw in some peas today as well. Very forgiving recipe/technique, and with a bit more garlic and onion, extremely flavorful. I'd also like to say that I really do appreciate all the comments that add in changes - I rarely have exactly the ingredients on hand, and love the input of possible changes.

Drumsticks with Peach and Honey

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Taste was not what I was expecting - somewhat bland. The chicken did come out moist. I don't think I'll be making this again any time soon.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Delicious, but I do agree with the reviews that said 475 is way too high. I used small red potatoes, quartered, and set the oven to 425. I thought they would take about 35 minutes, but they were thoroughly cooked before 25 minutes were up. I shut the oven off and just let them sit in there until the rest of dinner was ready. I used granulated garlic, dill, oregano, basil, parsley, salt & pepper, and thought the taste was wonderful. I may try 400 degrees next time.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I did change this quite a bit as per other reviewers' suggestions, but it's a good base as written. I added sour cream, onion powder, granulated garlic, lemon pepper, used leftover rotisserie chicken (which already has good seasoned flavor), more chicken, more soup (1/2 can of roasted garlic cream of mushroom in addition to the cream of broccoli), more milk to thin it a bit, and the biggest change of all - cooked egg noodles, so it became a one-dish meal. For the topping I used the butter/seasoned bread crumb topping and added grated parmesan, as I do for mac-n-cheese. Makes a much tastier topping. My 8 year old ate this with much less prodding than I usually have to do!

Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
"Holy cow, that's good" - my husband. I made it almost exactly as written, with the addition of some sliced onion while browning the meat, and sour cream at the end. I did brown on the stovetop, and then finish it in the oven, just for convenience. Will definitely make this again!

Sparkling Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
Delicious! The amount of fruit overwhelmed my punch bowl a bit, but we still guzzled down all the punch - and then ate the fruit after the company was gone. Will definitely make again. My FIL said it would be wonderful with vodka or gin added (I don't see the need!).

Crab and Shrimp Delight

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
Delicious with a few of the changes other reviewers noted: about 1 3/4 c. milk, 3/4 c. mayonnaise, Old Bay, garlic powder and freshly ground pepper. I didn't have shrimp on hand (usually do), but I did happen to have a whole pound of crab meat, so I used that. I also used orzo rather than angel hair, and while it was good, I wasn't satisfied with the texture - too much 'small' stuff! I think it would've seemed like a more substantial casserole with shrimp and larger pasta to contrast with the crab. I also left off the fried onions. I wonder if it would taste good with some spinach to break up the monochromatic look - it was all one color! Otherwise, very good!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Pretty good - maybe a little bland if I hadn't increased the garlic (but I increase the garlic on everything.... keeps the vampires away). I'm sure I'll make this again.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
Delicious! We love fish, but tilapia has usually left me cold - it's a little too mild-flavored. This topping adds a lot of flavor. I took the suggestions of adding onion and garlic powder, also panko (less than 1/2 cup), and sprinkled on a little bit of Old Bay while broiling the fish before putting on the topping. We'll be having this again!

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
My family really liked this, though I didn't expect to - recipes with canned soup usually wind up all tasting very similar to me. I tweaked this a little bit and it came out pretty good. I used raw chicken breasts, cubed, as I didn't have any cooked chicken on hand. I sauteed chopped onion and garlic in butter and added to step 1. I also mixed in some of the cheddar cheese with the chicken/soup mixture (and definitely used more than 1 cup total in the recipe - my older daughter loves cheese) and garlic powder. I don't use canned veggies, so I partially micro-cooked frozen green beans before adding them. I used StoveTop stuffing rather than an unseasoned stuffing mix - again, what I had on hand. I baked at 375 for about 50 - 55 minutes and then uncovered to brown the top. I will make this again, as even my picky 9 year old ate it.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
I've made sausage & peppers before, but never added wine or garlic - much better! I used cubanelle (frying) peppers, and only had sweet onions, and it was still delicious. We had this as sandwiches.

Syracuse Salt Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Yum - and really not salty at all. I didn't get as much of a salt crust as other people said (maybe too much water?), but they were good anyway. My 15 year old (who doesn't like potatoes at all) really liked these. Used up all the salt in the house, though!
