Homemade Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2012
Too sweet for my liking...I had to add more worcestire and a bunch of hot sauce to tone down the sweetness. Good for a starter recipe.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
I followed this recipe to the 't'. I found it to be just ok. It definitely needs more seasoning. I think next time I will add fresh garlic and maybe some spice. It just needed more. A great starter recipe though and very easy and fast. Thanks!

Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
This was so easy and tasty! I took my time heating the peppercorns (over med-med low heat) and didn't have any smoking issues as some of the other reviewers. My husband called it gourmet and I just smiled because he didn't know how easy it was. Definitely try this one out!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I will be making this again! We did layer some onions and celery bits on the bottom for some extra flavor. Also, freshly minced garlic is a must for this family. This is a very easy recipe and I look forward to some turkey sandwiches tomorrow!

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
The filling was a little bland for my taste. I will be making this again just with some more spice in the cheese blend. Thanks for the recipe.

Grilled Salmon I

Go easy on the salt or lessen the soy sauce a bit. Other than that, very yummy.

Ground Beef N Rice Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
This was pretty good! I was a bit apprehensive because of the other reviews (the texture of the meat), so I baked the ground beef mixture for about 15 minutes before I put the rice on top. Then I covered and baked for an additional 50 minutes. The kids didn't really care for it, I think because it doesn't look very appetizing. The taste was actually very good, but it did need some additional seasoning for my taste. Definitely a recipe to build on though!

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I loved this!! I was looking for a g.b. casserole that didn't require the fried onions (ran out). I thought the stuffing on top was interesting so I gave it a try. It was a hit at Christmas dinner with absolutely no leftovers. I will definitely be making this time and time again.

Swan's Summer Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
This was more like a salsa to me. I would definitely throw in some canned tomato juice as my 10 tomatoes only produced about 1/2 cups of juice. I will probably not be making this again, unless I am making a salsa.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Like many other reviewers, I made this as a corned beef and cabbage dinner. I put my brisket in the crockpot in a hurry and forgot to put in the garlic, bay leaves, and peppercorns. It was still very yummy so don't fret if you do the same thing I did. Having said that, I do look forward to doing the recipe again with all of the ingredients! :-) My crockpot is pretty small. I hardly had enough room for the brisket itself! So when it came time to add the veggies, there was no way to fit them in. I simply took the brisket out and put it in a shallow dish with a few spoonfulls of juices and covered it loosely with aluminum foil. While that was resting, I poured the remaining stock from the crockpot into a big stockpot. I added baby carrots and chunks of red potatoes. Bring these to a boil and cook over medium for 10 to 12 minutes. Then add the cabbage and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. We like our veggies tender-crisp so you may want to up the time if you like your veggies a little more tender. Make sure the veggies have enough liquid as well. You may need to add water or broth to keep them covered. Great recipe!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
I made this for St.Patty's Day this year. It was the best corn beef and cabbage my husband and I ever had. As per other reviews, I used beef broth instead of water. I only had enough to cover half of the roast, so I ended up using some water anyway. I also added lots of minced garlic as my family loves garlic. It was perfect!

Rainbow Trout with Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
Delicious! The only complaint we had was it needed a ton of salt and pepper. Also, unless you like a bowl of sauce with your filet, you could split this recipe in half and be just fine. Other than that, this is definitely one I will add to my recipe book.

Rocky Road Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
I had to make some changes to get the toppings to stay put. I referred to the caramel apple recipe submitted by Suzie. First, use chilled apples. Then melt your caramels with 2 tbsp. milk in the microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through. I let my melted caramels sit for about a minute before dipping the apples. The toppings stayed perfectly in place. I hope this helps!

Asian Ground Beef and Pepper Saute

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2006
I made this as a surprise lunch for my husband. He's been craving Asian food for a while now and he was very pleased! I didn't have the chili paste, so I used tomato paste. I used beef broth instead of the beef stock and I couldn't notice a difference :-) My husband thoroughly enjoyed this meal...and he has leftovers for tomorrow!! :-) Thanks for this delicious recipe!

Tuna Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: May 5, 2006
Very quick recipe. I had to add lots of spices. Also, I layered the top with cheese before baking. All in all, an okay recipe.
