Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
Delicious! This is definitely what you call comfort food! I made a few changes: I added plenty of black pepper, about 1/4 tsp. of dry mustard, 1/2 onion, chopped and sauteed, a dash of worsterhire sauce and one large tomato, diced. I substituted Kasseri cheese for the parmesan. My family loved it and i brought leftovers to work and everyone wants the recipe! Thanks a bunch!

Albondigas

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
Really enjoyed this recipe. I made a few changes: used leeks rather than onion, added cajun spice (paprika, cayenne, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, etc), salt and plenty of pepper. I also threw in some zucchini and lentils. Delicious! I made a large pot so my husband took some to work to share with co-workers as did I. I haven't heard what feedback he received yet, but everyone LOVED this soup. I would definitely recommend it. Lovely Mexican soup, though I know the spices I added weren't traditional.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
Like others who tried this recipe, I reduced the butter, used 1/2 and 1/2 rather than cream and added celery. Deliciously comforting. Thanks for the recipe!

Cherry Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Delicious. We served it with vanilla ice cream as suggested. I made it into more of a fruit crisp than a cobbler by omitting the egg milk and baking powder. Also, I used "lite" cherry filling. I would have added some almonds as another reviewer suggested but my stepson is allergic to nuts. However, everyone really enjoyed this and it was so simple to make.

Summer Potato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Fabulous! I used two eggs rather than three, omitted the lemon juice and added about 3 tsp. of Tabasco. Everyone enjoyed it very much. Next time I will keep a closer eye on the potatoes though as they were overcooked for my taste, but that was my fault :(

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Delicious flavor, sweet and smoky. I reduced the Liquid Smoke to about 1/2 and added about a 1 1/2 tsp. of dried mustard. This is now my favorite Easter ham recipe. Thanks!

Creamy Dill Dip II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
This dill dip had a great flavor. I added a dash of worsterhire sauce just because I like worstershire in almost everything. I didn't have cream cheese and used only sour cream and I think it would have turned out much better if I had followed the recipe in that aspect. I will definitly make it again...only next time I will include the cream cheese.

Three Cheese Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2006
Very good. I used green onions (four) and used cheddar rather than American cheese. My husband loved the bread crumb topping but I think that I will reduce the bread crumbs by half. Thanks for the recipe. And yes, it DOES go perfectly with ribs!

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
I did as several other reviewers did and used wheat flour as well as white flour (1 1/2 cups of each). I was disappointed that mine didn't rise as well as other reviewers did (no football-sized pitas in my oven) but most did expand and they had a wonderful flavor and texture. I think that I over-worked the dough so it's probably an error on my part. Thanks for the recipe Sandy!

Irene's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
Thanks to Beverly and her mother-in-law. This barbeque sauce was delicious. I used balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, doubled the cayenne and added an extra tablespoon. Once I let the sauce simmer for the recommended time, I strained the onions, pureed them and then put them back in the sauce. It thickened the sauce slightly and maintained the flavor of the sauce while keeping it smooth. Yum!

Chicken Fried Steak III

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
Very likely the best chicken fried steak I have ever made. I added a dash of Tabasco to the egg and omitted the celery salt in the gravy, substituted onion powder for the garlic salt and sprinkled gravy-laden steaks with paprika. Thanks Gail!

Buffalo Chicken Wings I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
I have tried various wing recipes at home but was always disappointed. Not true with this recipe! As some others, I dusted the wings with flour and added about one tbsp. of flour to the butter to thicken it up a bit. I also used 2 cloves of garlic and doubled the butter and pepper sauce because I was concerned there would not be enough sauce to simmer the chicken in...not like chicken wings are low-fat, anyways, right? I was glad I did so, but will definitely increase the amount of pepper sauce next time, but we like our food SPICY! My husband thought that this deserved five stars but my son and I wavered near four stars, though only because we wanted a little more kick. Thanks for sharing this recipe Ginger!

Orange Blossom Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
The flavor of this recipe is very good, and because of this I regret rating it only at 3 stars, but I had the same problem as Kez. The filling seemed soft so I placed the pie in the freezer and it firmed a little but by the time everyone served themselves (a potluck) and placed their slices on their plates, the slice collapsed into a pool of filling. Maybe someone can suggest a variation?

Cadillac Pimento Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
Scrumptious! I used real cheddar in lieu of processed cheese food and reduced fat cream cheese and mayo. I increased the pimento to 3 oz. and added freshly ground black pepper as well as a dash of worstershire. TIP: try it on bread with juicy tomatoes and crisp lettuce.

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
I'm not much for sweets, and made this for a potluck, but this was very good. Rather than adding 1 tbsp. vanilla, I added 1/2 tbsp. almond extract and 1/2 tbsp. vanilla. I, like others, doubled the pecan mixture. The cooking time for my cake was about 55 minutes. I didn't bother with the foil and the cake came out fine. A co-worker later asked me to make it for her husband's upcoming birthday, so I think that says a lot! Thanks for the recipe!

Yummy Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2006
I wish that I could give this recipe more than five stars. 'Yummy' is right! I changed it a little for our taste: used chopped deli turkey instead of bacon, Havarti instead of monterey jack, tripled the amount of green chile and added about 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper. I didn't have 1/2 and 1/2 so I used 1 c. of cream and 1/2 c. of milk. Also, this recipe made two quiches. Thank you for sharing Pamela!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
We love this recipe and I keep finding new ways to modify it (I feel I have to, since I make it at LEAST once a week)This is how we like it: I use celery seed rather than celery salt and usually have parmesan-romano cheese blend on hand so I use that. I also add 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes. I don't add any lemon juice anymore (I used to just reduce it by half) but now use low-fat mayo that I find to be quite tangy. I also double the amount of pepper and add about 1/2 c. of bread crumbs to the cheese mixture, which creates a nice texture and keeps the topping in place. Seasoning the fish with a bit of Old Bay seasoning, as others have done, really adds to the flavor as well. Thank you for helping us eat fish on a regular basis, Phoebe!

American Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
Sorry, but I give this recipe three stars only hesitantly. For starters, even as a "basic" recipe that can be altered to suit individual tastes, salt and pepper should have been necessary ingredients. However, my husband and son had multiple servings, but that was after my addition of salt, pepper, Worstershire sauce, garlic, carrots and corn. I also topped it off with bread crumbs along with the cheese. We also drizzled Louisiana hot sauce on our servings. In the end, my son (my most honest critic) told me that it needed more vegetables, potatoes and cheese, but as it was, I tripled the amount of vegetables, increased the amount of potatoes to 4 cups and increased the cheese up to 1 1/4 cups. I apologize for being negative, but I wasn't terribly impressed. Nevertheless, thank you for sharing Lisa!

Fajita Marinade II

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
This recipe is pretty good but I altered it a little for our tastes. Added about 1/4 tsp of Liquid Smoke and appx. 1 tsp. Mexican chile powder. My husband really liked it and thought it smelled wonderful even while the steak was marinating. Thanks Juanita!

Marinade for Steak I

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
Great marinade. I thought my steak was a little salty, but my husband and son had only rave reviews. I used 1 tbsp. wasabi in place of the mustard. Next time I will use 2 full tbsp. for more zip. Thanks Kat!
