Shepherd's Pie III

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
I loved the idea of this recipe, but made my own by altering a few things. I had leftover potatoes and carrots soaking in beef broth from the hideous diasater of a roast I made last week. The beef was too tough, so I gave it to the dogs and saved the rest. I took the potatoes and mashed them for the topping. The carrots were diced and used in the meat mixture. I use 1/3 lb of 95% lean beef, 1/3 lb italian pork sausage, and 1/2 lb of ground turkey. I added garlic salt/pepper, black pepper, more garlic powder, worchester sauce, a small white onion, and some frozen peas. Heat that on the skillet (no oil b/c the beef and pork gives plenty of it). I put it in a 375 preheated oven for 25 mins. It was FABULOUS!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
I took the idea of this recipe and tweaked it to my liking. I used 1 lb of 95% ground beef, 1/2 lb of italian pork sausage, 3 eggs, 3/4 C plain bread crumbs, 6 cloves of garlic finely chopped, a TON of italian seasoning and garlic powder, salt&pepper for the meatballs. For sauce, I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes and 2 cans of tomato paste (along with 2 tomato-paste-cans of water). I sauteed the meatballs in a deep skillet w/ extra virgin olive oil. Then added more garlic and onions. Then diced tomatoes/paste. I seasoned w/ more italian seasoning, dried basil, garlic powder, little bit of sugar, salt&pepper. If you don't like chunky sauce, use crushed tomatoes instead. I let it simmer for about 2.5 hours. It was a huge hit with everyone!

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
I love tofu, and I love lasagna ... I never thought this would taste soooo GOOD. I made some modifications to it based on other users reviews. First I sprayed my pan with PAM. In a large mixing bowl, I added a block of firm tofu (dried off w/ paper towel), 2 eggs, a couple gulgs of organic milk, kosher salt, italian seasoning, garlic powder, basil, nutmeg, blk pepper, mozz cheese, 3 cloves of fresh garlic chopped, and 1/2 a jar of Bertolli olive oil and mushroom sauce. I smashed it all together for the ricotta consistency and then put this tofu mixture as my bottom layer. I had 3 layers of noodles. On my 1st layer, I put some sauce from the jar and some cheese; then the tofu mixture, then sauce/cheese. I never measure my spices. Just pour in a whole bunch cuz it tastes so good (or eyeball it, as Rachel Ray would say)! Next time I may add some Boca ground meat sauteed in EVOO and garlic and add it as one of my layers. Spinach sounds good too. I bet my tofu-phobic husband will never know this lasagna was made with tofu! Thanks for the great recipe! *UPDATE*: I successfully tricked my husband. He LOVED the lasagna so I do not think I will ruin it for him by telling him about the tofu. One thing I would probably try differently next time is to use plain sauce (not the tofu/sauce mixture) for the bottom layer.

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
This is so yummy. Omitted avocado and tomatoes because I didn't have any (will use next time since I love both). Used a whole package of frozen corn, 1 can of black beans, 1/2 a bunch of cilantro, juice of 2 limes, 1 green pepper chopped in tiny pieces, scallions, a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, lots of garlic powder, lots of minced garlic, cayenne pepper. Next time I may add red and yellow peppers, and a small red onion in place of scallions. I like to change my recipes around.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
I used cavatappi pasta (thick, hallow spirals) boiled in water w/ a little bit of olive oil and kosher salt. As others suggested, I used 2 cans of soup- one cream of chicken, one cream of celery (Campbell's Health Request)- and a soup can of organic milk. Two cans of tuna is a must (I'd even consider adding another). I added garlic powder, salt and black pepper for taste, and omitted the cheese. It was delicious. But even with the extra stuff I added, seemed like it still needed an extra umpf. I will probably put fresh, sauteed onions on it next time and maybe broccoli florets inside. Will be making this again. Very fast and easy. Not to mention my hubby told me it's the best tuna casserole he's ever had. Thanks!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
My husband and I love this recipe! He talks about it all the time. I made some modifications. I used one can of cream of chicken and one can of cream of mushroom (Campbell's Low Sodium), an 8 oz 'no fat' sour cream instead of the 16 oz, and seasoned it with a little salt and tons of black pepper and garlic powder. I omitted the ham and the parmesan cheese on top. I may crush potato chips on it next time to give it some extra crunch. I think Hormel's Real Bacon Bits would be good in it too. I am going to try this out for Thanksgiving and Xmas to replace my mashed potatoes.

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2003
YUM! This was so good! And it did not take 4 hours to make, even though I squeezed all the lemons by hand since I didn't have a juicer. The trick is to soak the lemons in hot water for 10 mins and roll each lemon on the counter before you cut and squeeze. I only used 1 1/4 C of sugar and added a little more water. Very good recipe! Thanks Jo!

Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2003
This was so yummy! However, tt was really greasy so next time I will use 1/2 the butter or none at all. I did not use any salt like the other reviewers suggested since the cream of chicken is already salted. I also eyed how much cheese I put in. Garlic powder and dried basil give it a nice kick. Next time I might use double the potatoes.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2002
This is definitely a fabulous comfort food! My fiance loved this. Make it only when you have a lot of time on your hands. The longer you cook this, the better it tastes. I made some modifications to this recipe. I used a "can" more water than the recipe called for. I didn't have any poultry seasoning so I used garlic powder and Mrs. Dash. I also added tons of salt and pepper gradually. My fiance LOVES chicken so used a bunch of those frozen boneless chicken tenderloins from the wholesale club (Tyson). I did cut it in chunks like the other reviewers suggested. I am not sure how much I used. With the tenderloins you only have to do step 1 for 30 mins instead of the 1 hr 1/2. Along with the frozen peas, I added other mixed veggies (carrots, corn, green beans mixture). Lastly, for the dumplings ... I used the dumplings recipe on the Bisquick box. It's 2 cups of Bisquick and 2/3 cups of milk. Yum Yum!

Peter's Pasta al' Tonno

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
I haven't tried Peter's recipe, but I make a great tuna pasta which is pretty similar. First, I would not use spaghetti, fettucine, or linguini. Try to stick with penne or rotini. Do not overcook the pasta! Second, while the pasta is cooking prepare 2 cans (6 oz each) of drained albacore tuna (flaked) in a large bowl. Use the tuna can to measure the olive oil. I usually fill it up half way. Add olive oil to tuna, then salt and pepper to taste. Mince 4 cloves of garlic in bowl and stir. When the pasta is done, drain and run under cold water. Then add pasta to tuna mixture. Add more salt and pepper. And 2 more cloves of garlic. You can eat this cold, or nuke it in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
This recipe was pretty good :). I would use fresh green beans and leave out the butter next time. I ALWAYS cook with garlic and olive oil so this recipe wasn't too exciting to me. Everyone should try it though.

Snickerdoodle Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
Thanks for the great recipe. I added a tsp of vanilla extract as others suggested. I also used organic eggs and milk. This tasted like delicious pound cake. Would be pretty tasty with fresh strawberries and whipped cream!

Breaded Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
Pretty good overall except that breading is a little soggy. The first time I made it I slightly covered it w/ foil. The second time I made it I didn't cover it at all, but it still came out a little soggy. Next time I won't line the pan with foil to see what happens. Also, I would suggest more salt, and some garlic cloves for better flavor.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
I don't like bananas at all, but I used this recipe to make banana bread for my fiance. He loved it and said it was the best BB he has ever tasted. I have to admit, it did smell realllllllly good when I took it out of the oven. I know I would probably enjoy this if I liked bananas.

Super Easy Chicken Fingers

Not bad, but not super either. I prefer my chicken drenched in eggs over margarine.

Chicken Curry III

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2002
I'm sorry to say, but this recipe was not very good. It was bland with a weird coconut taste. It also took forever to make. My family did not like this at all.

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2002
These burgers were pretty good. My family really enjoyed them. I omitted the red bell peppers and celery because I didn't have any, but still tasted fine. Oh, I didn't really care for the dill weed so next time I make these I will not use it.
