Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Per suggestions by other reviewers, I cooked the squash in the microwave and substituted Italian Seasonings for the various spices. I used ground venison instead of beef, and added some fresh mushrooms I had on hand. Delicious and healthy!

Poached Fish with Cucumbers

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Yum, yum, yum! I followed the recipe except for using Dijon mustard instead of plain mustard. I also went a little heavy on the tarragon (dried) based on another review indicating that it was a little bland. We loved the results, and hope you do, too!

Per other reviewer suggestions, I used 1/3 cup port, 1/3 cup water, and 1 TBSP soy sauce. This sauce is a keeper!

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Every single bite was surprisingly delicious. Used ground venison instead of beef; otherwise, didn't change a thing. This is now our favorite hamburger recipe.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This was terrific! We loved the spiciness of the dish. I followed other review advice and added two cubed potatoes into the mix. I also used ground Italian sausage instead of ground beef because that is what I had. I will make this again frequently!

Mom's 'Sweet 'n' Sours' Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This will be my new rib standard recipe! The dish turned out wondefully...moist meat, and yummy flavors. I did make the following adjustments: less soy sauce and water, used brown sugar instead of white, and used rice vinegar. The sauce thickened up nicely with the use of slightly less liquids.

Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts with Shallots

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
This was fabulous! I followed the advice of another reviewer and added celery and mushrooms 5 mins before the end. The crunchiness of the celery with the smooth mushrooms provided a new dimension to this recipe. I also thickened the sauce with a bit of cornstarch. I didn't have shallots and substituted a bit of finely chopped yellow onion. I would still consider it a very easy recipe, and good enough to use for a casual dinner party.

Easy, and delicious. I didn't have an orange, so I substituted with std orange juice, and it turned well. This will be a fall staple at our dinner table.

Beef Mushroom Spaghetti

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
After a few modifications based on previous reviewers' feedback, I added canned mushrooms, sliced black olives, and garlic in the saute. I also used finely-chopped venison instead of ground beef. This dish was delicious!

Christian's Crazy Sherpa Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
Clean eating, simple prep and ingredients. The cheese is a fun topping. Reminds me of Marie Callendar's vegetable cheese dish.

Deer Chop Hurry

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
I used antelope chops, did not brown the meat first as other reviewers indicated it wasn't necessary, and added some fresh mushrooms. It turned into a ragu-type of dish, so I served it over garlic mashed potatoes. Talk about easy and delicious!

Asian Rainbow Trout

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
This is really good. I followed the suggestions of other reviewers and substituted sesame oil and brown sugar for the olive oil and white sugar. I also baked the 1 lb. whole trout in foil in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 mins. It was perfect. I plan to make this often.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
I didn't have fresh mushroom, so I used canned mushrooms, and this was still a great recipe. The chicken breasts came out so moist and tender!

Grilled Montana Trout

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
I felt that the rosemary and lemon flavors melded perfectly with the trout in this recipe. The timing on the grill was also ideal. Easy, tasteful, and a showy presentation. Thanks for a great recipe!
