Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2007
Fabulous appetizer for BBQ. Similar to recipe in "Cook like a Man" cookbook. I add minced garlic and cajun seasoning to my cream cheese.

Crab Rangoon III

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
I'll add to the list of people changing the recipe and then reviewing it. I used a little more than half a can of crab to 8 oz cream cheese, omitted water chestnuts, added chopped scallions, touch of minced garlic, worchestire, and tsp of soy. They take a little time to assemble but it's half the fun! So glad I decided to make these!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
I have tried many recipes on this site and this is by far the best. They do have the true Hooters wings taste which we crave. I have never deep fried anything before and was successful at this (and proud!). I added a bit more garlic powder but other than that followed the directions to a T, frying for 12 minutes and draining the wings on paper towels. Def. don't need to make the sauce until the wings are frying. This recipe is quick and easy and you won't believe the taste. Must use Franks hot sauce! I am going to buy the Franks bottle with a higher heat and add a little of that for dh who likes 'em TMI! Thanks for this recipe thats so easy, tasty, and a $$ saver!

Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
I strongly recommend adding the gorgonzola a little at a time to suit your taste on this one. My cheese was high quality and very pungeont and made the sauce overwelming in taste. Next time I think i will omit the gorgonzola and just add garlic and parmesan for an alfredo that will work on pasta.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: May 10, 2007
This soup was good, although I added a lot of my own seasoning (garlic, dill). The real problem with this recipe, is that even after adding extra milk and almost twice the chicken broth and a little white wine, I still had little more than two bowls worth of soup. If your going to go through all the trouble of making this, wouldn't you like to at least have enough?? I strongly suggest doubling or even tripling the recipe.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
this was excellent and made my house smell excellent for hours. it's all very soft though, so if you like more of a crust on your fish, add breadcrumbs.

Meatloaf that Doesn't Crumble

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
I realize I'm in the minority here. The only thing I left out was the green pepper, however I substituted a couple carrots. The pan FILLED with grease which I had to drain out, and then I waited 5 minutes to cut the loaf and it completely crumbled. Maybe I did something wrong but this definately did not work out for me, and due to the overpowering flavor of the sausage, I am not going to try it again.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
I won't comment on the flavor because I just don't think this dish was for me.My husband devoured it though so thats a good sign. I added sauteed onion and mushroom/garlic/paprika/sour cream. I probably would make this again but I would use BONELESS CHOPS. With all the sauce, it makes it hard to see the bone and it would just be easier if they weren't in there.

Chinese Cabbage Salad II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
This is so easy, healthy, and tasty. I added a couple drops of Sesame oil and soy to help add asian flavor and toast the almonds along with the sesame seeds. This is a great side, or add chicken for a a main dish! I've done it with rice wine and white wine vinegar and i like the rice wine a little better. i also like to add thinly sliced red pepper and/or pineapple.thanks for a great easy recipe.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
Excellent. I modified it a bit (used a slow cooker, increased veggies, increased heat). It was the best chili I've ever made and as much as we loved our old recipe, this is going to be our new one. Thank You!!!

Spinach and Goat Cheese Salad with Beetroot Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
I don't like beets and this dressing was great. It came out too thick but I think I could just add more beet juice/olive oil to thin it out. I sprayed the walnuts with butter spray and the sugar stuck to them better. It needed something else and I've decided golden raisins would be perfect.

Cream of Chicken with Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
Like other reviewers have noticed, this soup does not come out thick enough as written. It's a milky consistancy. I had to thicken it up on my own. I pureed some of the veggies and I let it reduce quite a bit. Like another reviewer, i used the dried porcini mushrooms which without, this soup would not had flavor. I will make this soup again with my modifications.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
I'm changing my review of this. I've finally learned the trick that makes this work. Add a little of the bean liquid. It helps with the consistancy and it's awesome. Add other ingrediants to suit your taste! Put it on a pita with cucumber, sprouts, and chicken. I have this for lunch almost everyday:^) Thanks!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
Need to sautee veggies first or you will have crunchy soup. I sub bacon for ham and sautee my veggies in the bacon fat. I add a minced clove of garlic and sautee for a couple minutes before pouring that pan in with the boiling potatoes. Salt and add a bay leaf to the potato water too. I add a pinch of cayenne pepper. Add half a bag of frozen corn too. Peas would be a good addition. Or skip the corn and peas and add sauteed mushrooms. At the end I put a little bacon in each bowl and a little on top with a dab of sour cream. My husband calls it the best homemade soup ever.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I used half ground beef and half ground pork and put the sauce (with half the sugar)on top in the last 15 minutes. I added a celery stalk, 3 cloves garlic, 1 tsp thyme, 1 tbsp worcestire, and dash of celery salt because I love flavor and knew it wouldn't be enough as is. Next time, I will make extra sauce and put half in the meatloaf and half on top to get more of that great flavor thru out.

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
I've had better at a restaurant but these are the best I've made on my own. I put them in a salad with cinnamon baked apples, bleu cheese, w/cider vinagarette. Also, had them out in a bowl at Thanksgiving and they went fast.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
Left the beer out completely. Nice taste for a meal made from stock pantry items. I will make this again. I like that it's a chili recipe and you can convert the leftovers: nachos/cheese dip/taco filling. Tastes just as great after a few days. I added additional cumin, cayanne pepper, and black pepper, garlic, pickeled jalepenos. Subbed Stewed Tomatos drained.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
Fab. Can't wait for leftovers tonight. Used a tip roast, and cooked it 8 hours on low, 2 hours on warm. I followed everyones advice. Floured the roast(flour, onion powder and fresh minced garlic) and Seared it a few minutes in very hot olive oil. Used beef broth in place of the water *used the broth to scrape the pan and then put it in the crock. Added a sliced onion, dash of worchestire. At the end, I added fresh mushrooms and half a cup red wine which really helped. The only complaint I have would be the salt content of the gravy, I may try next time to use only half the onion soup mix or low sodium broth.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
I read the reviews and modified the recipe to my taste and it was Fabulous. I added some fresh minced garlic, and after cooking it 6 hours, I shredded it (it fell apart) and fried it in a pan with some of the juice and a half packet of Hot taco mix. I scooped out some of the onion and pepper from the crock pot and then threw the meat back in there on "warm" until we were ready to eat (tacos). Going to use the leftovers (not very much) for a nacho dip on Sunday. Can't go wrong with this recipe, do it according to your own taste.
