Simple Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2005
This recipe was quick and easy to make, but like some of the other reviwers, I thought it was a little on the dry side, and could use some more flavor. I'll probably make this again but next time I will definitely use more mayo, and perhaps put in two packets of soup, instead of one. For the record, I used Barilla's "tubini" pasta, which worked well.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
A very tasty and easy recipe. I agree with the others who suggest only using 15oz of ricotta. This is a great recipe for a beginner cook - it's pretty much foolproof, and I loved how pretty it looked coming out of the oven. I mixed all the ziti with the cheese mixture and would rather not layer, because in my opinion mixing it all together keeps the pasta from drying out in the oven. It was even better the second day! From now on I will make this a day ahead.

Simply the Easiest Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
I made a few changes that were recommended by previous reviewers and I can't believe how great this turned out. It smelled like heaven while it was cooking and the taste didn't disappoint. It was super-tender. The changes I made were: instead of sliced onion I mixed in a packet of dry onion and mushroom soup mix with the beer sauce. I used one room-temperature bottle of Sam Adams agave beer but I think any Sam Adams-type beer would work well. I used 1/2C brown sugar instead of the 3/4 C in the recipe. Finally, after I covered the dish with foil, I let it marinate on the counter for about 20 minutes before I put in in the oven, just to give the acidity in the sauce a chance to start working on the meat. LOVED this and I will be making this recipe all winter. :-)

Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Not sure if it was my fault, but with a three-ingredient recipe, this should be dummy-proof. The cookies simply disintegrated. It looked like sand on my cookie sheet.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2012
I made this recipe just as written and it turned out perfectly and was a HUGE hit. This is something I will make every year, and it makes a lot of candy, so there's plenty to share.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2006
This was terrific. So quick and easy, and the cleanup is a snap too. I suggest having a couple lemon wedges handy to drizzle over the top right before you serve. I only made one alteration - since some folks were saying this turned out a little bland, I stirred in about 1 Tablespoon of Paul Newman's Parmesan and Garlic dressing into the mayo before coating the chicken. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Best Ever Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2002
Excellent! I made the following changes, as recommended by other reviewers: Added 1 C shredded cheddar cheese, used Ritz crackers instead of flakes, and used mushroom soup instead of chicken. Also, I only cooked it for 50 minutes and that was perfect. I thought the soup and onion gave it a lot of flavor. The cheese added a nice texture. Next time I plan to skip the water chestnuts, and add some sliced almond.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
Great recipe. Couple of things you do need to know - gotta be careful unwrapping the ribs when they come out of the oven so the steam doesn't burn your fingers. Also, they do indeed release a lot of juice when they cook, so it's best to put the wrapped ribs in some sort of pan with sides, so when you unwrap them, the juice doesn't run everywhere. Love the fact that this was so easy and yet so good. Like everyone else, my ribs fell right off the bone and were delicious. Will definitely make again.

The Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
This smelled like heaven the minute it went in the oven. Didn't turn out quite perfectly but I take the blame. When I make this again (and I will!) I will chop the onion and pepper smaller. It didn't quite hold together but I think getting the veggie pieces smaller will help. I used A1 Cajun sauce and it was fabulous. Because the sauce is already spicy, I might omit the additional pepper next time. This truly is one of the best smelling dinners I have ever made. The meat I used was a meat loaf blend of ground beef, ground pork and ground veal. O.M.G. Definitely will make this again and went back for a second serving even though it fell apart. YUM.

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2014
I made this recipe exactly as written a few times and also with some add-ins a few times. It turned out great each time. Moist and flavorful.

Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
This sauce is terrific! I dialed back a little on the salt and smoke, and used some garlic paste instead of garlic powder. What I got was a sauce that is bright and tangy - the flavor really pops and you can tell immediately that you're eating something just-made instead of a sauce that had been on the shelf in the grocery store for a long time. Be careful handling the ribs when you unwrap them - the foil will be full of hot juices, so plan ahead. Will make this recipe again, by popular demand!

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
This is excellent! I followed the recipe pretty much to the letter. The only change I made was to add the juice of one whole lemon. It makes a LOT. This is more like 10 servings (at least) not six. But it's yummy and I am sure would be a popular hit at anyone's cookout. YUM!

Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
This was easy and delicious. And what smells better than butter and garlic together? ;-) I grated the garlic to maximize the flavor but used 4 cloves instead of 6. Will definitely make this again and share with others.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I improvised a little on this recipe. We both loved it and this is a definite "make-again." I think one of the cool things about this recipe is that you really can make your own version, based on the outline this recipe provides.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
This recipe is fantastic! I only had 4 medium bananas, so added a large juicy peach, peeled and cut into chunks. I also added 2 handfuls of chopped walnuts but otherwise followed the original recipe. This bread took about 70 minutes to cook but when it was done it was perfect - not burned and no goo in the middle. A really great recipe!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
Easy and delicious! Will definitely make this again - only thing I might add are some capers. I used turkey sausage and it was great without the grease.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
I don't know if I have anything new to add here but I just loved this chicken. Like the others, I quartered half a lemon, and put that in the cavity along with the celery. My chicken was bigger than the one called for in this recipe, but even with a longer time in the oven it still turned out incredibly juicy! I will use this recipe a lot - it's delicious!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
This was excellent. A few things. I think 1 pound of stew meat does not make enough for 4 servings. This was more like a generous 2 servings or a medium 3 servings. So I plan to make this again, but will buy more meat next time so that I have more meat to serve and not so much left over, unused sauce. This is a recipe I plan to make and share because it was easy, delicious and smelled so wonderful while it was cooking. Next time I will throw in some sauteed mushrooms.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
I made this recipe exactly according to the original recipe, except I used fresh parsley instead of dry. It did seem too watery when the time came to fill the tortillas, so I added some more cheese to try to thicken it up - that did help a little. I would definitely omit the water if/when I make it again. The taste is great and you can pretty easily modify it to your tastes. I think next time I would add some corn and maybe try a different taco sauce (I used Chi Chi's). I liked the taste but it was a mess to manage.
