Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Usually the first time I make a recipe I try to follow it to a T but unfortunately I didn't have sweet italian sausage, the italian plum tomatoes or fresh herbs so I used dry herbs (1 T fresh = approx 1 tsp dry), a regular mild italian sausage and 1 (14.5 oz) can of stewed italian style tomotoes & 1 (14.5 oz) can of diced italian style tomatoes instead. Since my sausage already had a little spice to it I scaled back the red pepper flakes a bit (1 tsp instead of 2) & it turned out excellent. Everyone went back for 2nds! This was so quick and easy to prepare & the minor changes worked very well. Will definately be implementing this into my regular rotation!

Broccoli Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
This was just OK for us, nothing to write home about. Added a clove of fresh minced garlic to try to bring up the flavor a bit, but was still lacking something. Maybe next time I'll try a more robust cheese like a sharp white chedder; swiss was just too mild a flavor.

Creamy Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
Made this w/spaghetti dinner last night and the family loved. I followed the recipe exactly (well almost - didn't measure the swiss cheese - just grated off the block till it looked like a good amount) but there are endless possibilities for modifying this to your taste. I've got some fresh garden tomatoes that I think I'll dice and add to the next batch - yummy! Thanks for the great recipe Kim!

Port Huron-Style Coney Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
Not sure what's goin on in Port Huron, but this is definitely not what I was expecting for a Coney sauce. It was OK for what it was but I won't be making it again. Gonna keep searching for the real Detroit Coney sauce.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
One of the best creamy caesar dressings I've tried & super easy! Didn't have Dijon mustard or real anchovies so had to substitute regular mustard and anchovy paste but still excellent!

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Been using this recipe for a couple years and just never got around to rating. This is the best Turkey ever! I was never a Turkey fan before but this recipe rocks; it comes out perfectly golden and crisp outside and unbelievably moist & tender inside. Don't change a thing! Family & friends are always asking for this recipe; thanks for the great submission!

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Followed the recipe exactly which is why I'm only giving 4 stars. This soup is easy to make and pretty tasty but it needs a little something. Next time I'll try carmelizing the onions as suggested by another reviewer and see if that gives it the extra kick it needs to reach the 5 star status.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Great recipe...next time will cut the amount of pecans in half (a bit too nutty for me)...but everyone really enjoyed (several came back for seconds)!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
Used cream of chicken (didn't have any cream of mushroom on hand); was OK but not quite what I was hoping for. Seemed too heavy w/gravy and breading on chops. Maybe next time I'll just avoid the gravy altogether and bake the breaded chops.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
This recipe was OK but not quite what I was looking for; something about the flavor was off for me. The combination of dry mustard, wocestershire sauce and ketchup reminded me of a cross between ranch round steak and meatloaf. I think I will keep looking for the right recipe.

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
I decided to add some canned spinach I had on hand to the alfredo sauce to give it a little kick and it gave it a really great flavor. Also, I did not have any fresh parsley so I substituted w/dry. I will definately make this again but next time I will wait until the last 3-5 minutes of cook time before adding the pre-cooked shrimp so that the sauce reaches its desired thickness first and the shrimp do not get too overdone.

Caesar Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
This dressing was good and better the next day after the flavors had a chance to set up. But I will continue to search for the perfect Ceasar dressing.
