Reuben Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2006
This was delish! My hubby devoured it. I toasted the bread cubes on the advice of previous reviews, and the bread ended up being one of the tastiest parts. I also used 1000 Island dressing, and more than 3/4 Cup -- I gave it a good drizzle over the top to lightly but evenly coat it. The only thing I would do different would be to get the cheese right -- I thought I bought a block of swiss, but noticed while I was grating it that I had picked up sharp cheddar by mistake. It still came out awesome, but the swiss would be even better. Mmmmm. My husband asked me to put this in regular menu rotation. Updated to add: I've made this a couple more times now, and with the swiss cheese, which was better as I expected. This dish is a great hit with our family!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
My husband called this a "weekly winner" and said he can't wait until I make it again. I won't mind either, considering how easy it was to make. I dislike pounding chicken, so I used chicken tenderloin instead and skipped that step. I threw in some Italian seasoning with the flour mixture, some garlic when I threw the chicken in the pan, and I doubled the sauce. Next time I will at double the mushrooms as well. My husband went back for more and there are no leftovers. This was great, especially the sauce. Mmmmm.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
I followed Shannon's suggestion and added bread crumbs (I used roasted garlic, all I had on hand), paprika, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. I also sprinkled the filets with Old Bay on each side as suggested. This was one of the best fish dishes I have ever had, let alone prepared myself. I don't have very many fish dishes in my repertoire that I feel comfortable with, but this was so easy and as long as you watch your times for the broiler, a no-fail dish. This will definitely be added to our regular rotation. I can't wait to make it again!

Rich Mexican Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This was the star of our dinner and really outshone what was probably a really great maindish. I made it exactly as written, with the exception of using 1 can of jalapenos instead of the fresh as my grocer was out. Whew! One whole can may have been much as it was REALLY REALLY REALLY spicy. But the sweetness of the corn and red pepper was so refreshing in contrast. I will definitely make this again and will probably use half a can of jalapenos. Or rather, I'll just double the recipe except for the jalapenos, because my family could have eaten plenty more of this! Mmmmmmmmmm! One of the most surprising and tastiest side dishes I've ever had. Definitely too rich for every day, but it will make any occasional dinner special!

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Fantastic! I have made this several times at the urging of my husband and kids, who love every bite. Other than doubling everything (because there is never enough -- seriously, this is the only thing I make that there are never leftovers, no matter how much I make) I make it exactly to recipe. Delicious and sooooo easy to make!

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
This dish was wonderful, and so easy to prepare. I made it almost exact per the recipe. The only changes I made were I didn't add the last bit of oil when adding the tomatoes and cooked onions and everything back into the pan, and I used a little more balsamic vinegar, maybe another tablespoon or two. My family loved it. I have one pork chop and toppings leftover from last night hidden away for lunch today. I've been thinking about it all morning! I'm sure I'll be making this often.

Orange Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
This was delicious and very light and refreshing. Maybe a bit too light in flavor. We tripled the green onion to really have the flavor come out, otherwise it would have been a bit bland. But with the additional green onion it was wonderful. We have salad every night with dinner, and this will make a nice addition to our repertoire, especially during the spring and summer months. Edited to add: We've since had this several times in the last month. I still recommend lots of green onion. I've started adding a couple TBSP of orange juice and some orange zest to really bring out the flavor of the dressing. With these changes I'd bump up my rating from a 4 to a 5. We also toss on some flavored almond slivers to complete the salad. Yummm!

Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
I love this recipe. My husband wants me to make this every week. I leave out the egg (did it by accident one time and didn't notice a difference, so I don't bother now) and use ~6 oz of tomato and basil feta. I saute the minced garlic (upped to 4 cloves) and spinach a few minutes on the stove before adding to the rest of the mixture. Per other reviewer suggestions, I add worcestershire (few tablespoons maybe) and some basil and paprika (~1 tbsp each). Plus some salt and pepper. I form the patties then stick in the freezer for at least an hour. The batch makes enough for two meals for my family, and when I cook up the second half, I just cook them on the stove straight from the freezer.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I added fresh minced garlic to the oil rather than using garlic salt to season the chicken, otherwise I made this exactly as written and it was wonderful. Even my husband, who is not a fan of balsamic vinegar, was very pleased. I served this with green beans and some mashed potatoes and the whole meal was a hit with everyone. I can't wait to make this chicken again.

Italian Style Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
Delicious and different! I made this because I didn't want to have to live up to a family member's traditional style chili that we all rave about. I figured this would be a great compromise. I've made this a few times now. My husband requests it often. I usually make a double batch, but I use half ground beef & half sweet Italian sausage. I use fresh mushrooms, and add extra, because the mushrooms are really stand-out in this recipe. I've used 1 can kidney and 1 can cannellini beans, but I think I'm switching to all cannellini, because they really are terrific with these flavors. Now my family thinks of this as MY chili and it's not just the other family member whose praises are sung!

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

I really loved this recipe. It's so easy and elegant, my favorite combination! Sooooo delicious! I also added balsamic vinegar and added butter to thicken the sauce and make it glossy and lovely.

Slow Cooker Sausage with Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Excellent. Best sausage and peppers we've ever had. The sausage is so tender. Thicker slices works best with the vegetables -- the first time (of many) that I made this, I chopped the vegetables too thin and I might as well have pureed them. With thicker strips they were still strips.

Lamb Feta Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
This was fantastic and I cannot wait to make it again. I would add more sauce next time. Based on previous reviews, I used more garlic and some red pepper flakes. I browned the lamb, then the onions and garlic, and added the spices at the end. I blanched the bell peppers for about 5 minutes and added some of the sauce to the meat mixture before stuffing my red peppers. That's why I wish I'd had another jar. I just used jarred Prego -- I think it was Roasted red pepper & garlic or something. These were the best stuffed peppers I've ever tasted. My husband devoured them!

Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
I make this all the time. I use Merry Widow's modifications (cut water, sugar, cornstarch, halve the oil, up soy to 4TBSP) and marinate for about 3 hours. I grill it with my stovetop cast iron grill pan. It is the only way my husband wants me to make pork chops anymore.

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Very delicious. I used a 5 pound bottom round roast, one full can of low-sodium beef broth in place of the 1 cup water, the 3 packets italian dressing mix, the jar of pepperoncinis. I lightly misted steak rolls with olive oil and seasoned very lightly with garlic powder and celery salt (I also tried without, and much prefer it with the celery salt, trust me on this). Sprinkled on some shredded provolone and mozzarella cheeses and toasted. Served with some mild horseradish sauce. Mmmm. Leftovers were perhaps even better. My family loves this!

London Broil II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Delicious! I did not use flank steak, but used top round london broil. I doubled the marinade ingredients, except the garlic which I used even more (because we love our garlic). I also added 2 or 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. I let it marinade about 24 hours, then broiled for about 8 minutes per side. I poured the leftover marinade into a small sauce pot, added about a teaspoon of cornstarch while it was still cold, then boiled and reduced it down a bit to a nice thick gravy. Just enough to drizzle a tiny bit across the tops of the sliced meat. It was a huge hit with my family and will definitely be made again.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
Followed MegaG's suggestions. I used a Butt Roast, slow-cooked on low for 6-7 hours, shredded and added BBQ Sauce then slow-cooked for another hour. Served on toaster Kaiser rolls with coleslaw. Mmmmm! Very tasty!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Instead of the dry rub, I made a marinade with some oil and the lime juice in a 3:1 ratio and the herbs added to that. I did not use garlic powder, but added minced garlic to the marinade. I let it marinade about 4 hours. For the sauce, I once again skipped the garlic powder, and instead I added some some chicken broth and about a tablespoon of honey to the lime juice. It was delicious.

Beans, Greens and Garlic Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This was a huge hit with my family. I added a large can of diced tomato, and used chicken stock and mini bowties. I seasoned with some crushed red pepper, italian seasonings, some celery salt and some regular kosher salt, and pepper. I added some fresh grated parmesan to each bowl. This will definitely be in regular rotation during the cooler months.
