Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
This is really good - made it with pork once and once with beef and liked both - also added grated carrots like other reviewers had. Found Pickled Ginger (and other tricky ingredients) at my super Target, but think regular ginger would work just fine too. Will add this recipe to my regular rotation.

The Best Chicken Fried Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Great recipe. My husband raved about it hours after eating it. I added about 5 dashes of Tabasco to the gravy to give it the extra kick that it needed.. and it says season to taste with salt and pepper.. so if yours was bland add more seasonings.. I used about 2 - 3 tsp salt and added about 1 tsp of pepper in addition to the tabasco in the gravy. It turned out great !! The cast iron skillet is a great tool for this -- Lodge makes a great one around 35 (for large 12 inch size) Another tip: I used the buttermilk -- the coating got gloppy and next time I will layer the steaks with sheets of wax paper between so the coating does not stick to other steaks as you stack them before frying! Thanks for the great recipe.

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I used red onions instead of yellow ones - I find if the onions are raw I like the red onions best. Followed the recipe as is though otherwise. Will make it again.

BREAKSTONE'S and KNUDSEN Cheesy Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
Great Brunch Recipe! I have used this recipe for roughly 10 years and have taken it to my local Mom's Club (MOPS). Everyone loves it. And as a busy mom,it is easy to put together and make. It travels well. You can also use cornflakes as a topping if your children ate all your ritz crackers! Great recipe. I have used as much as 16 oz of sour cream with it to make it creamier, and have also increased the cheese to 16 ounces just so it makes it into the "double by-pass" category of food! The addition of bacon bits also makes it even better... ahh the possibilities are endless!

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Very good. I also added about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup soy sauce to the water to boil the pork. It turned out great! Thanks for posting the recipe. I used Cattlemen's Honey BBQ sauce and it was tasty! Will make again.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
I was not in love with the herbs on the roast (but didn't think it was bad either), but the glaze! mmm made up for it. I will be making the glaze again (doubling the recipe) to serve with pork again. Very tasty! Thank you for sharing. The pork is also great in a crock pot.

Knodel

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
I grew up in Austria and this is very close to the real thing (I have a recipe from there) -- For added flavor: fry bacon crisp (in small slices) and toss the bread in the bacon fat to give it more smokey flavor. With bacon they are often called Tiroler Knoedel (from Tyrol). Very good thanks for sharing. The only thing is that Knodel are Bread dumplings and are formed into balls. For an authenic recipe google "goodcookbecky" and "Austrian Bread Dumplings" I have a very similar recipe on my blog there.

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
This was excellent!! I made it tonight for dinner with full intent to move on to the main entre that I had prepared. I found this filling and satisfying. My husband who is not a fan of onion soups liked it! What I changed: I used sweet onions and carmelized them. I was a little short on the beef broth, so I added a can of campbells Onion soup straight from the can. I also toasted the french bread before I topped the soup with them and the cheese -- My dinner dishes were broiler proof, so I used the soup bowls I had. Excellent! Thanks for sharing.

Special Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
These were good. I would not call them the best I have ever had, but they were good. I will probably make them again. I may add chives next time to see what that does for the recipe. I used a hand held emersion blender to mix the eggs.. boy did that make it easier than mashing the yolks iwth a fork! If you have one.. use it!

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
This was terrific! Like others, I first melted the cheese onto the fresh baguette bread (350F for about 7-10 minutes) and then added the topping at the event. I added about 1 cup of shredded asiago cheese to the tomato mixture. I really love the taste of garlic, so I increased that to about 6 tsp of chopped garlic in a double recipe! Everyone said it was a winner. A double recipe covers 4 baguettes for a crowd with a little to spare. Yummy. Will certainly repeat again!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
Good soup! Hold off on the Cilantro for individuals to decide if they want to add it those picky eaters. Avocado, cheese, sour cream and fried tortilla strips make this a five star! Also I added a can of black beans which thickened this soup. It was even better day two!

Bavarian Style Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
I could not believe something good would come from that combination of ingredients -- chili sauce? Sauerkraut? Whole cranberries? Well, I tried it anyway because it had such a high rating and boy was it yummy!!! Friends requested the recipe too - they liked it so much! Will make again and maybe for dinner instead of appetizers!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This was so easy to make (and easy to eat) I made 101 strawberries and stuck them on bamboo skewers. I displayed them in a styrofoam - they looked like chocolate long stem roses! Very cute display and I got rave reviews from other choir members! :) I will definately make again

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
I liked this one: I used half the amount of pasta like others had recommended and added the parmesan cheese just before serving - I added spinach to this and cut up some kiebasa since I did not have sausage. My 3 yr old boy loved it! My 7 yr old was less impressed, but I cannot please everyone in my house! The pasta did absorb a lot of the moisture. I had cooked it seperately and added it the last few minutes of cooking. It needs something else.. maybe worcestershire? But overall I liked this one.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
Great recipe. I did think it needed something extra. The second time I made it I used both canned French Onion Soup and the dry Onion Soup Mix by Lipton. Had more flavor. Great recipe though, thank you for sharing. Our choir gobbled it up (without the bread!) Thanks again

Chocolate Rum Balls I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
I love this recipe. I've made it two years now. THis time I crushed the crackers in a ziplock and then added all the remaining ingredients in the same bag and mixed it that way. After letting it sit for 30 minutes I formed them into balls and rolled them in powdered sugar -- it's sticky process but well worth it. They just get better with time.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
This is a good one. I omited the celery, and tabasco (figured if it needed more spice I could always add it later. On day one was very good. Day too almost too spicey to eat. On day three the flavors had mellowed and it was quite tasty! I entered it in a chili cookoff and won the "best chili" category -- it was a small gathering of friends and there were 5 chilis to compete with. Will make again. It is similar to my old chili recipe with the bacon (which by the way I made with real bacon) Very good! Thank you for sharing!
