Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
I did love it. I only had one orange to juice so I made up the difference using Satsuma's, the difference defintely came through. I also used the zest from all the citrus I juiced. I can see that the variations could be endless... add cinnamon stick, nuts, candied ginger, use different juices or juice combinations, splash in some liqueur, and on, and on, and on... I'm a fan.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Wow! Unbelievably good! Especially considering how cheap and easy the ingredients are! I made it EXACTLY as written. No need to boil bones, make stock, rush around gathering museum-quality ingredients... I used Dollar Store bouillon powder, milk nearing it's pull date, potatoes sprouting eyes, and vegetables no longer salad-worthy. And I'll do it again! After tasting as written I added one can of corn (to a doubled recipe), I might up the white pepper a bit next time. I love it.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Made this to take to the beach for a weekend. LOVED by all! Oh...my...God...it is delicious! I particularly like the velvety-ness of the soup base. It doesn't 'break' or curdle like some recipes. Ohhhh....I need to make some more....!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Oh. My. God. These are soooo good! Following other reviews I added 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 3/4 tsp. cinnamon to muffin batter. Used canola oil instead of butter. Used 1/2 C. white sugar & 1/4 C. brown sugar. Increased cinnamon in crumb topping to 1/4 tsp. Best use of aging bananas yet.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
After reading other reviews I doubled all but the worcestershire, added (too much) garlic, threw it all in the crockpot (no browning), added sauteed mushrooms just before serving. Pulled some sauce and whisked with softened cream cheese before stirring into pot. Will make again with little or no garlic!

Green Chili Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Added 1/2 bag of corn. Ran out of time so skipped the potatoes (would add some Yukon Gold chunks next time). We came home from a movie to this simmering and ready to eat. We really liked this! I added green Tabasco at the table, YUM! Will play with extra spices next time. And there WILL be a next time.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Cut meat into soup-size cubes. Put all but barley straight into crockpot. Used beef broth instead of bouillon. Doubled barley (long-cooking pearl), added for last hour. My family was wild about it! Would add extra broth next time, and possibly a packet of gravy mix as suggested by another reviewer. Will become a regular winter comfort food for us.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Crock pot convenience is a genius idea. I substituted browned sausage for the mushrooms (my family won't eat them), otherwise made exactly as submitted. I chopped and sauteed everything ahead of time, travelled with the wet ingredients separate from the bread, combined it all at Grandma's house. Heeding the advice of another reviewer, I removed the lid for the last hour to reduce the moisture to my liking. Next time I would: make my own bread cubes instead of using packaged, start with less than the 4 C. Chicken Stock I used this time, throw in a handful of walunts, and maybe add some chopped apple. This got a lot of raves. There will definitely be a 'next time' and I'll definitely stick with the crock pot.

Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
I made it with Granny Smith apples and yams (we prefer the flavor and texture of yams over sweet potatoes). Next time I would use a softer apple, like a Golden Delicious, to better match the texture of the yams. My elderly parents thought this was the best flavor on a plate full of great stuff. I liked it a lot too. My husband came away "without getting a sweet potato experience." He prefers savory flavors to sweet, dessert-ish ones like this, and would undoubtedly rate it a few stars lower. Savory lovers would probably do better to move on. Everyone else should try it!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
My elderly parents loved, loved, loved it, just as it is. Dad gives it 7 stars! We all liked it better the next day, after it set up. For my taste I would like to punch up the flavor by adding come diced green chili peppers or or minced garlic or whatever flavor compliments the meal. Will definitely make again and play with variations.

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2005
After reading ALL the reviews I consolidated the good advice into the following: used small curd cottage cheese; upped the garlic powder to 1 full tsp.; added one package frozen chopped spinach (thawed, liquid squeezed out); added 2-3 tbls. fresh parsley and same amount of FRESH basil; added a healty grind of black pepper; blended filling in the cuisinart; used plenty of spaghetti sauce; added extra mozzerella on top. Baked 20 minutes covered to keep from drying out and 20 minutes uncovered to brown. Served with green Tabasco at the table for those who wanted more zip - it was awesome. My die-hard carnivore of a husband liked it a lot but would welcome hamburger or sausage added to the filling or spaghetti sauce. My vegetarian daughters were deliriously happy. I'm great either way. Will definitely make again. In fact, I will make some to freeze for those hectic nights. Real yummy. Oh... one more thing... as recommended by others I boiled the shells 2.5 minutes less than directed, plunged into cold water and let dry. They were easy to handle and didn't tear. I didn't try piping filling in from a zip-loc but it sounds good. **************** U P D A T E ************ Made again and piped from a gallon size zip-loc bag. Loved it, loved it! The whole recipe of filling was too cumbersome to handle in the bag, about 1/3 at a time worked best for me. A hole about the size of a dime works great. Too small a hole is hard work, too large is hard to control.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2005
This was just O.K. for us. It was somewhat bland, needed quite a bit more flavor to win the hearts of this family. As with other reviewers, ours never got past the "slightly underdone" texture either.

Gramma's Apple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2005
Substituted dried cranberries for the raisins, and doubled the vanilla otherwise made exactly to recipe. Used half whole wheat, half white bread. Used Granny Smith apples which I sauteed first in a little butter. Served the first night with vanilla ice cream, made the sauce for the next night. The kids liked ice cream best, grown-ups preferred the sauce (which had to be warmed up to eliminate grainy texture). Will definitely make again but will use raisins (since my kids don't like cooked craisins either), will also add some extra cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Will definitely use half wheat bread again, it really made a nice contribution. Very yummy!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
Used suggestions from other reviews: 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can cream of mushroom, 1 C. sour cream, 4 C. chicken, 1 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. canynne, substitued 1/2 C. enchilada sauce for 1/2 cup milk (after setting aside filling portion), doubled the cheese. We ate it all up, but most of us added green or red tabasco at the table to punch up the flavor. Can't really call this enchiladas, or even a Mexican dish. But as a flour tortilla casserole it just a little too rich and gummy for us. Would eat it again if someone else made it but I'll probably put my own efforts elsewhere. I'm still searching for a great chicken enchilada recipe.

Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
Hubby loved it, loved it, loved it! Made it exactly as written. It made enough sauce for double the amount of shanks (which I wish I'd made and frozen for future dinners). Easy make-ahead recipe for company-quality or special occassion dinners. A winner!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2005
Used suggestions found in other reviews: substituted 2 cans (undiluted) Cream of Chicken soup for one of the cans of broth; Rotel brand "Mexican Festival" diced tomatoes (with lime juice & cilantro); S&W brand "Caribbean" Black Beans (with peppers, chilis, onion & lime juice; and hand-shredded grocery store roasted chicken. Garnished with sour cream, cubed avocado and chopped fresh cilantro. It was "Oh My God!" good. My 10 yr-old daughter had two bowls after having dinner at a friend's house (and then again for breakfast this morning!). Her picky, picky, picky, 13 yr-old sister (who doesn't tolerate spices well) even had seconds - despite being sick with a fever! Astonishingly quick and easy. I already bought supplies for two more batches to keep on hand. I'm going to go reheat the rest of the leftovers right now, these are my kind of flavors!
