Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I used turkey sausage, added zucchini, and replaced the parmesan cheese with asiago, along with doubling the basil and adding a sprinkling of oregano. Cooking the penne a couple minutes less then al dente allowed me to cook it in the sauce longer, which in turn made the pasta soak up more juices preventing this from being runny. Fold in fresh spinach at the end and this was a really fast weeknight meal. Different vegetable variations will keep this fresh, making this a perfect recipe to keep in rotation.

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
This was quite good. I cut way back on the salt, and I am glad I did. I also found that the amount of spices was a perfect amount for 2 lbs. of fish. I served over a bed of brown rice with peas. Fish isn't always very good the next day as leftovers, but this was great the next day.

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Like everybody else, I doubled the sauce. I also added fresh grated ginger and halved the sugar. Great dish.

Big Joe's Venison Steak in Chestnut Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I stuck fairly close to the recipe except I braised the venison in a frying pan and used a touch of garlic. It turned out quite well.

Braised Lemon Pheasant

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
This was magnificent. I prepared the full recipe of the liquid (using 1/2 cup lemon juice) but for 1 pheasant. I also added about 1 tsp rosemary and used 2 garlic cloves. The sauce made great gravy once cooked down and thickened with a little corn starch.

Vegetable Lovers' Fried Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
I liked this very much. I added some fresh grated ginger, a little shredded cabbage, and some white pepper. I substituted sesame oil for the vegetable oil. I also finely julienned the carrots instead of shredding them.

Southwestern-Flavored Ground Beef or Turkey for Tacos & Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
I used red onion, venison ground, and doubled the spice amounts. I added a chopped Hungarian Wax pepper and some cayenne to the mix, as well as adding some chopped cilantro at the very end. I must say that this turned out excellent this way!

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Very good, basic hummus. I strayed only slightly from the recipe - a little more garlic and tahini, and added cayenne pepper. I used cumin instead of black pepper.

Grilled Venison Backstrap

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Mmmm! They just melted in the mouth! Marinated in the cider overnight and in the BBQ sauce for about 5 hours. I used regular bacon cut in half, and this was plenty to wrap around the chunks. Being winter, I baked at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes. I served these as an hors d'œuvre at Christmas, and everyone hovered around them until they were gone.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
In making a double batch, I added about 1/2 cup finely diced green pepper to the ingredients listed. I also sprinkled both sides with paprika. For best results, go easy on the oil - it cooks and browns perfectly with just a little.

Sweet Russian Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
Really, really good meal. I doubled the diced tomatoes, used only 1/8 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 cup brown rice, an extra bouillon cube, and only 1/2 tsp salt. I also used 1 lb ground beef and 1/2 lb pork sausage which I browned and drained first. I am going to have to try this with venison, as other reviewers have.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Makes a nice side dish. I used brown rice, chicken broth instead of vegetable broth, 1 sweet and 1 hot pepper sauteed, and I added a can of diced tomatoes. I cut way back on the cayenne pepper because of the addition of a hot pepper.

Venison Bacon Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
This recipe makes a very good burger. I did not have shallots on hand so I used onion, otherwise stuck pretty close to the recipe. It helps to keep the burgers held together if frozen first. Also, a well oiled grate and cooking at a lower temperature for a longer period of time works well. For best results, never cook venison beyond medium rare.

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Wow, these were good! I used home-made regular pesto on whole wheat pitas. Along with the items suggested in the recipe, I also topped with artichoke hearts, fresh oregano leaves and Hungarian wax pepper slices. Oh, and I cooked mine on the grill.

Italian Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Not bad. I added a zucchini and a yellow squash, and I used more garlic. From my herb garden I added some fresh basil, thyme, savory, and oregano. Even with these herbs, the dish tasted lightly seasoned. I cooked the noodles partially before adding to this dish. Some spiciness is called for, I think. Next time I will add a hot pepper to the mix.
