Toasted Almond Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
Very yummy recipe! I tweaked it a bit. I also decreased the amount of oil, I tossed the beans until they were coated well (my guess is I used about 1/4 cup). I steamed the green beans just until they were bright green, were slightly cooked but still had a "snap." Then I added 1 tablespoon of regular balsamic and 1 tablespoon of white balsamic, then seasoned salt (Tastefully Simple Brand) and fresh ground pepper. I also threw in some gorgonzola that I had on hand. I made this for a large group and several are demanding the recipe. Thanks!

Spicy Beef Curry Stew for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
This was really yummy!!! I read some of the other reviews and doubled the curry powder. My hubby's tummy can't take fresh jalapenos, so I got canned tomatoes with green chiles and that added just the right amount of heat. The only thing I will do differently next time is cut the beef cubes in half. To make this more hearty, I added about 3/4 cup of lentils and I served it over cous-cous. If your desire is to make it a bit spicer, put a dollop of yogurt on top. Thanks, for submitting this, we enjoyed it!!

Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Great soup! Much better than the bland ham & bean everyone ususally serves, it has a nice zip to it! I made my own ham stock because my mother made ham for Christmas and was going to throw away the bone. My local store didn't have any decent brats so I used Kielbasa like some other reviewers and I grilled them beforehand. My husband can't do anything too spicy so I didn't use hot pepper sauce and I used the canned tomatoes with the chilies added, they aren't as spicy. Really yummy on a cold day!!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Wow....Fabulous! I followed the directions and I didn't have a candy thermometer, I went by color. I even tasted as I went along and did the ice water test and that worked fine. The only changes I made were adding a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and using pecans instead of almonds. It came out perfect, no separation. If you live in freezing temp area, just stick it outside, it'll be ready in about a half hour. After you break it apart, don't throw away the crumbs. Put it on top of ice cream or throw in a batch of cookie batter (I threw it in my chocolate chip cookie batter, yum!)

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Wow, this was fabulous!!! I did it once following the recipe exactly, and I just did it again with some variations. I only used about 1/4 of the mushrooms, because I had half of a huge zucchini I had to use up. I cooked the mushrooms for a minute, then added the zucchini, and followed the rest of the recipe almost exactly, I just added a bit more cheese. Since parm. cheese is salty, you really don't need to add extra salt.

Slow Cooker Latin Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
YUMMY! I used chicken breasts because I had bought a big pack I had to use up. I didn't brown beforehand and it came out great, very tender. I did what another viewer suggested and decreased the black beans and added a can of corn. It freezes well too. Thank you!

Baked French Swirl Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I really loved this, it was soooo easy and yummy!!! I had it with raisins instead because they are my dad's favorite, and I made it for my family. They didn't have any Pepperidge Farm bread where I went but the store had it's own brand and it was fine. It seems impressive to the people you serve it to but it's not that much work. Thanks for submitting, it's a keeper!

Black-Eyed Pea Salad II

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
Totally great recipe. This is the first one I've tried on this site that I didn't tweak, I made it exactly as written. It was really yummy!! I would suggest to everyone to do it the night before you are serving it because the flavors really come together overnight. Thanks for submitting this!

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
Great muffins! I did as others suggested and added 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead of the white, and 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce. I also added some cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and sprinkled some oats and a little brown sugar on top. I wanted to use whole wheat flower (hubby came home from store with white, oh well) but I will definitely try it next time. Thanks for a great recipe!

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
This is a great recipe. It's always a hit! I had a bunch of leftover Easter Ham in my freezer and I used that instead of the sausage, it was delicious! My dad mentioned that with the ham it would be even better with onions and peppers, I'll try that next time!

Yummy Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
I rated this years ago and I feel the need to rate it again! It's by far my favorite side dish at Thanksgiving. I peel and boil the potatoes, then mash them. Apparently I have to try it with marshmallows this year because we have someone coming with a nut allergy. I happen to prefer it with the nuts so I'm making two batches. Thanks for this great recipe!!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
I really enjoyed this recipe. The beauty of this site, is to take a recipe and make it your own way. I put cracked pepper all over my roast before I put it in to add a little heat. I used Catalina dressing also as a previous reviewer suggested to make more tangy. I also shook some lipton onion soup mix into the liquid. There are several ways to avoid a dry roast. First of all, smear the cranberry/dressing mixture all over the roast before you start cooking. Halfway through the cooking process, flip the roast and spoon more mixture over it. I left the string on my roast and it stayed in tact. You also have to keep an eye on the internal temperature. My roast was completely done in 6 hours after cooking it on low.

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
This was really a great recipe. The only modification I made was a trick my grandmother used to do. I added a little fresh lemon juice to the apples, then coated them with a little extra brown sugar. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
I liked this recipe very much, but it was a bit bland so I made a few changes. I sauteed fresh mushrooms with some garlic in a little butter, and instead of the dried onion I used fresh shallot. I added some basil and cracked pepper. Great served with rice or couscous.

Grilled Oysters with Fennel Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This was really, really yummy. Use a good, meaty oyster. I also recommend using unsalted butter because most oysters themselves are salty enough. A light, crisp slightly dry white wine is divine with this dish.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
Wow, this really was yummy. Read other reviews before you make this for some tips. Like others suggested, I added more broccoli but kept the amount of mayo the same so it didn't taste too mayo-heavy. I used balsamic vinegar because I didn't have the white wine vinegar. I happen to love sunflower seeds so I added a little extra. I also used red grapes instead of raisins and that added to the sweetness. I'm not a big fan of onions but I must say that the red onion was great in this, I just added less. I made a HUGE bowl of this for a luncheon at work and there were NO leftovers.

Easy Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
Loved this recipe!!! My grandmother was Pennsylvania dutch and this tasted just like hers, only less fatty because she would use either a whole roast or bone-in chops. I added garlic also, and the carraway seed as suggested by a previous viewer...delicious!! I would love to try it with the cranberry beer as someone indicated. I like to use a thicker chop, and cook it slow. I love the zing of sauerkraut too, but the hubby doesn't so the apple really helped. He said this recipe is the only way he'll eat sauerkraut. Add a little scallion to your mashed potatoes, and spoon this over them and it's wonderful!

Best Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
Wonderful soup!!! I only made a slight change of eliminating the fetuccini and adding cheese tortellini when ready to serve. My stomach and onions don't get along but dehydrated ones are okay so I threw in an envelope of dry onion soup mix, and used just a bit more zucchini. I used turkey sausage to keep the fat down and no one knew the difference. I also try to watch our sodium so I used low sodium beef broth. The wine adds a wonderful flavor, but a full bodied one is a must! My friend used this recipe with a lighter red like pinot noir and it didn't turn out as good. Thanks for a great recipe!
