Corn Chip Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
We enjoyed this salad (but I used Catalina dressing and Fritos). Light and filling at the same time. I've made it with meat and without. It's great either way. You'd never think Catalina would go well with the different flavors but it goes great.

Swedish Meatballs (Svenska Kottbullar)

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
I doubled this recipe for Christmas dinner and kids and adults, enjoyed it alike. I varied from the recipe only slightly, choosing not to add nutmeg or brown sugar and added only a dash of ginger. The flavor from the spices is so slight, you would never know it was in there, if you hadn't read the recipe. Maybe adding all the spices along with the brown sugar makes for the odd sweetness other reviewers have posted about? If you're concerned with those flavors, leave them out all together or go conservative. I don't think it would take away from the dish. In the description of this recipe, the author mentions putting this in the crock pot but gives no further instructions. So, I winged it. I prepared as above, placed meatballs in the crock pot, covered with gravy, and placed in the refrigerator overnight. Christmas morning, I put it on low for 4 hours. I didn't add the sour cream until about 15 minutes before serving just because I forgot to add it... and I served it over egg noodles.

Bacon Cheddar Patty Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
I did a search for recipes with bacon and cheddar and this recipe came up. I needed something I could alter to my low carb diet and so I decided to give this one a try. I replaced the mashed potatoes with steamed cauliflower but left everything else the same. They were good but there wasn't much flavor for our tastes. Next time, I'd add garlic, onions, maybe some parmesan cheese. These were good and easy to make.

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I did not enjoy this recipe simply because I don't care for cinnamon with any kind of protein. I've had cinnamon in chili, soups, and now chicken, and well, I don't care for the flavor it imparts, nor did my family. Having said that, if I had left that out, this would have been a great recipe and I will make again, just without the spices. If you think you might not or don't care for that flavor, leave it out and just try the chicken with the garlic and salt.

Stephanie's Freezer Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I make this every few months and it is so worth it! You can't find a jarred sauce at the store that can beat this. Depending on my mood, I will add mushrooms, more garlic, port wine, etc... Sometimes I leave out the meat, whatever our tastes are at the time. It's a very versatile recipe and freezes very well.

Mustard Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
We wanted a new taste to go with broccoli and decided to give this a try. I didn't have Dijon on hand so used plain mustard instead. Followed the recipe except as above and it was great! Just enough kick to liven up the broccoli.
