Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
2/26/07 - This recipe was excellent with a few modifications! I scale the recipe to 27 servings (2 cans black beans) and use a 16 oz. pkg. frozen corn, cooked. Add 1 Tbls. cumin, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/8-1/4 c. chopped cilantro and 1/3 c. fresh lime juice with pulp (1-3 limes depending on size.) Make sure you drain all cans before adding to salsa. It tastes best if you let it chill for 2 days. Excellent over rice! 6/20/06 - I have made this three times already. It makes taco salad wonderful! I just can't get enough of it!

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
This is a very good basic recipe to start with. I tweaked it to our taste with the advice of those that went before. I used 1/2 the catsup, doubled the sauce, and omitted the salt. I used 1 pkg. dry onion soup mix, reconstituted, and added a 4 oz. can of mushrooms with juice to the sauce. I made thinner steaks (6 per lb. of beef). I also used 1 egg per lb. of beef and the patties stayed together nicely.

Seafood Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
6/20 This recipe tastes as I expected. It is very good. I used 12 oz. pkg. crab, 8 oz. (3 c.) rotini pasta, and 2 stalks celery. However, I followed the advice of others and made the sauce recipe as originally written. Thanks. 7/9 With lt. mayo, skim milk, and aspartame this has 347 cal., 12g. fat, and 58 carbs per serving.

Can't Miss Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
6/20/06 I thought the flavor was fine when it was first made. However, I did have a problem with the cucumbers weeping after refrigerating. I will try pouring off the extra water and adding the yogurt just before serving next time. 7/4/07 I made this again and omitted any salt. It stayed better in the refrigerator, but I still didn't get very excited about eating it. Too much sauce and too much garlic.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2006
11/19/07 I tried this recipe again with 1/2 the sauce and two broccoli crowns. We enjoyed it much better. This is a delicious recipe if you get the proportions right. 6/20/06 Please define a head of broccoli. I bought a bunch of three and put in two and still had too much sauce which made it very strong. I will attempt this salad again because it tastes like the deli salad I love that is so expensive.

Easy Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
This was very easy and very tasty. I used ground turkey, fat free sour cream, and a little taco seasoning in the meat. The leftovers were better than the original because the flavors had a better chance to blend. I will definitely make this again. Thanks.

Marinated Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
We stuck to the recipe ingredients, marinated it overnight, and cooked it in the crockpot with the marinade the next day for 8-9 hours on low. It was delicious. It would also be good cooked with veggies and/or make the au jus into gravy. We boiled the leftovers in the au jus and they were even better. I would like to try this on the grill as the original recipe states. Thank you for this recipe.

This recipe was good. It had a nice fresh flavor. I added mushrooms and doubled the onions. Next time I might try it with sausage. I will make this again. Thanks.

Chili Dog Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
This recipe was ok, but I think it was more work than chili dogs and about the same taste.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
This was ok, but it needed more flavor. To give ground turkey flavor, you have to really overspice it. Maybe if you double the spices with the turkey or use ground beef. I put a dollop of sour cream in my bowl, which gave it a nice unique flavor.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
This was delicious and so easy! I used only 4 chicken breasts but all of the soup. We had the sauce on egg noodles. Yum! Next time I will add extra mushrooms and serve with grated cheese on top. I had too much sauce with 4 chicken breasts. Maybe leave out the cream of chicken soup.

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2007
I thought this recipe was very good as is. I do agree the cranberries were a bit mild. I would like to try these suggestions given: onions, soy sauce, canned whole cranberries, and brown sugar. These might make it even better. It was very tasty with rice-a-roni original or Italian whole grain.

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2007
5/10 This recipe is good, but the flavors of the mustard and lemon juice do come through as well as I like. (It may depend on the size of your lemon.) I will make this again with more mustard and lemon juice. I will also try some dill.

Dee's Roast Pork for Tacos

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
If you like really spicy mexican, you will have to add some hotter peppers. I cooked it in the crockpot, removed the meat, shredded it, and put it back in its broth. It was delicious.

Taco Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
I thought this was really good. Not like hamburger helper at all. I did not have everything required on hand so I made some substitutions. I used a 14 1/2 oz. can of tomatoes w/green chilis and only an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce. I omitted the water and the can of green chilis. I also used cheese spread in place of chedder (except for the 1/2 c. on top.) I prepared it in the skillet without the cheese, chilled it, reheated it in the crock pot (1 hr. on high) the next day and added the cheese (melted in the microwave) 15 min. before serving at a potluck at work. I would like to try it again sticking to the recipe.

Tomato, Cucumber and Red Onion Salad with Mint

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
7/13/06 I only used 1/2 the salt and 1/3 the oil to make it healthier still. (We will see if the left overs turn out.) I also used cherry tomatoes, quartered with seeds because that is what I have from my garden. It made a more attractive salad. I did not have any fresh mint so I used 1 Tbls. of dried crushed mint. It was wonderful!!P.S. Marinating with the salt draws out the water from the cucumbers, but I think that is the point, to make dressing. Try using 1/2 the salt and it should reduce the water.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
I read a lot of reviewers recommendations on this recipe. Since I incorporated most of them and added one of my own, I am not sure that I am rating this recipe at all. This is what I changed: 2 C frozen corn, 3 T chili powder, 2 T cumin, 1 T cilantro, 2 cans stewed tomatoes (chopped), and some leftover brown rice. However, the coup de gras was the 3 C of smoked pork broth. Serve with extra cilantro and lime wedges for topping. This is great served with simple quesadillas. Very awesome!!! I will try using some chicken broth and zucchini. This recipe is versatile, mix it up.

Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
8/7/08 Only three stars because it needs a little tweaking for our taste. The basil was too strong and the rest of the dressing was too bland. Marinating would improve this, which we did not do. The salad was much better the next day. I would reduce the olive oil (1T?), increase the lime juice (1 lime or 4t?), and eliminate the salt. (It makes the cucumbers weep.) Red or green onion would be good in this. Changing from basil to cilantro, you have a different salad. I will definitely make again and report. 8/24/09 Use juice from 1 lime, 1 T olive oil, 1 T dried basil, 2 sm green onions, and omit salt. Marinate several hours or overnight. Delicious! With these changes it is 5 stars.

Egg Salad I

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
As written this recipe is O.K. I liked the paprika, dill, mustard, and onion flavors. I used 2 green onions, chopped, instead of the red. I did feel it was missing something, however, and it was too dry. I doubled the mayo and dijon, then I added 2 Tbls. yellow mustard. Tweeked just a little it suited my taste better. Thank you for sharing.
