Savory Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2005
These are excellent!!! Mine turned out great--not too dry at all. The only deviation from the original recipe was that I didn't have any wheat germ to add. I just substituted extra flour for it. I also added a handful of shredded Italian blend cheese (though I don't think this would effect the moistness any). I baked mine in a mini-muffin pan (for the same amount of time) for our church's after-service Easter Brunch--I can't wait to share them!!! (of course, I had to test 1 or 2--OK, maybe 3, first!)

Kielbasa Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2005
This recipe is awesome!!!!! Even my kids (ages 5 and 3) loved it, cabbage and all. Since my husband likes stews with tomato chunks, I also added a can of stewed tomatoes to the recipe. The sour cream adds just the right finishing touch (I added about 1/2 cup, though).

Cinnamon Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This was the perfect fall supper! I did take some of the other reviewers' advice and it turned out perfect: I cut the potatoes/sweet potatoes in large wedges instead of slicing them and they held together nicely without falling apart. I also used 2 apples instead of 1. I combined some brown sugar with the cinnamon and instead of doing the bag thing, I just sprinkled some of the mixture lightly over the top of all the potatoes/apples so that it wouldn't be overwhelmed with the cinnamon taste. As for the gravy, I just mixed some of the pan juices with water/cornstarch and heated until thickened. The smell in my whole house while this baked was better than any candle on the market! And the mix of tastes was really great. Will definitely make again!

Crab Quiche I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
I loved this! I used 4 eggs like some of the other reviewers suggested, and substituted chedder cheese because I didn't have any swiss on hand. It was excellent! It would be good with bacon or even finely minced green and red peppers.

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
My family loves Mexican and Indian recipes and this was a very good alternative--kind of a combination of the best of both cuisines. I agree with another reviewer--it really is more of a curry, but with it's own unique blend of spices. The only substitution I made was instead of the jalapeno pepper and tomatoes, I used a can of Rotel diced tomatoes with jalepenos. Even the kids enjoyed this one!!!

Corn, Sausage and Pepper Chowder

Reviewed: May 26, 2005
The whole family loved this!!! I stuck to the basic recipe, with just a couple changes. I didn't have any green bell peppers in the fridge, so I substituted a poblano pepper. The slightly spicy flavor of the poblano mixed nicely with the cumin, corn, and garlic. I also used frozen diced hash brown potatoes instead of the red potatoes to save some prep/cooking time (something I do with most recipes that call for potatoes). The biggest change I made, though, was substituting evaporated skim milk instead of the milk and cream so that it's much lower in fat. It was still thick and creamy, thanks to the pureed corn. Oh, and (recipe author, please correct me if I'm wrong), I think there was a typo on the amount of sausage--I think it's supposed to be 14 oz, not 4 oz. The packs of kielbasa from the store only come in 14 oz packs, so 4 oz would be just a tiny bit. I used the whole 14 oz and it seemed to be the perfect amount of sausage for the recipe.

Bob's Habanero Hot Sauce - Liquid Fire

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
I have an overabundance of habaneros in my garden this year, and I was searching the web for a good hot sauce to make when I stumbled upon this one. This by far beats any hot sauce I've ever made in the past! I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical after reading the ingredient list, but with all the good reviews I decided to try it. The flavors really come together nicely, though I took some of the other reviewers' advice and decreased the mustard down to 1/4 cup and left the seeds in about half the habaneros. Very nice blend of sweet and hot!

Zippy Ground Beef Skillet

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
This was really good...the whole family loved it! I added a minced garlic clove, a can of rinsed and drained black beans for extra nutrition and a couple handfuls of frozen corn for color and texture. I also melted Mexican shredded cheese over all of it at the end. Will definitely make again!

Tangy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
very yummy! I used chipotle chili powder instead of regular chili powder to raise the spice level. Also added some garlic powder. The pork was very juicy and had a very nice taste (the people who said it was dry maybe grilled it directly instead of using indirect heat? ) I took the advice of some of the reviewers and heated the leftover marinade to a boil and added some white wine to thin it out and served this over the sliced pork--very good!

Bierox Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
We thought that this was pretty good. I have no idea what "real" Bierox is supposed to taste like, so I'm not sure how this compares. My 3yr old and 5 yr old even ate this, cabbage and all, and wanted seconds. It's very cheesy (a plus for my kids!) and the crescent rolls make it really yummy. The only negative thing was it was a bit bland. Next time I might add some peppers or a can of tomatoes.

DASH Diet Mexican Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2005
Overall, this was a very good recipe. I didn't drain the tomatoes and it got a bit watery. Next time, I might mix some shredded cheese in with the tomato mixture to thicken it up a bit. It tasted good, though. My 3 yr old loved it, but my 5 yr old just picked the chicken out of it and wouldn't eat anything else :p

Easy Turkey Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
This was pretty good--everyone liked it. I did double up on the curry powder like many other reviewers suggested. Also added a few handfuls of frozen peas.
