Philly Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
Wow! The spiced meat was delicious! I used chewy Calabrese buns, because the store was out of hoagies, and (after reading up on the "traditional" Philly Cheesesteak) I did one batch with provolone cheese and another batch with Cheez Whiz. We preferred the provolone. Oh, and I used the garlic mayo from the other allrecipes cheesesteak, which elevated the sandwich to a whole new level. Fabulous! Will definitely add to the regular rotation!

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
I'm not sure I should give this five stars, since I added spices to the panko bread crumbs I used according to some suggestions, but as a "foundation" recipe, it was great, and really allows for experimentation. Sometimes, I just need to know what temp. to cook it and for how long! This is that. Simple, moist and good!

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
Let's say 3-and-a-half stars. While this recipe is certainly inexpensive, simple, fast and filling (four stars for those qualities) it would be nearly flavourless if made as written. As other reviewers suggested, I added garlic, onion, and worcestershire to the ground beef (and halved the cream cheese) and it still remained blah. Better reheated the next day, it's true. But I think I'll stick with "beef strip" stroganoff, using my own spices and broth, instead of processed gravy mix and soup.... On the flip side, I only happened upon this because my brother was going to make Hamburger Helper, and I couldn't stand the thought of him eating sodium and additives and considering it a proper meal! So I foisted this recipe on him and he totally loved it ... Different strokes!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
This was great! Cheap, easy, and I had all the ingredients in the pantry. Served this with Roasted Garlic Cauliflower and Oven Roasted Red Potatoes (both Allrecipes), and doubled gravy per reviewer suggestions. Would it be politically incorrect to call this dish a Man Pleaser? I liked it, sure, but hubbie, brother and dad were drooooling: meat, potatoes, onions, gravy, what's not to like?!?

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
Really liked this! Easy, tasty, and a very nice change from steamed-as-usual.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Meh. Pretty bland. Maybe a different/better brand of pesto would make a difference? Had to add cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Won't make again.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
This was great, and easy, and it will go into regular rotation! Added pack of taco seasoning to the beef, and layered refried beans between two or three tortillas instead of mixing it into the meat . . . wonderful taste, satisfying dinner, super leftovers!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Amazing dish! Everyone at the table enjoyed this one, and I will definitely be making it again. Followed the recipe exactly (but added grated asiago, as well). Yum!

Hearty Harvest and Ham Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
This is really delicious. All those healthy vegetables and a perfect spice combination result in a very satisfying stew that tastes even better the next day. I probably shouldn't have used red cabbage, however, because the entire meal turned an unappetizing shade of purple! My mistake. It's what I had in the fridge, but I'll stick with green cabbage next time : )

Excellent Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
This was indeed excellent soup, tasty and easy to make. I used 1% milk, slightly less butter, 1/3 cup cornstarch instead of flour, and sharp, aged cheddar in lieu of processed cheese. I doubled the broccoli (lightly steamed in the microwave before adding) and sauteed chopped shallots and a couple cloves of crushed garlic into the melting butter, as recommended by some reviewers--and I'm glad I did. Next time, I think I'll even add some steamed cauliflower. My significant other lamented that there was no meat in our soup 'n' salad meal, but two-bites-later he wasn't complaining, and happily took the leftovers for lunch. Yummy dish, and I will make it again!

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
I did not add any meats, because I served this as a side-dish, but I did cook the rice in chicken broth for added flavour. That said, this was very bland, and I will not make it again.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
First of all, I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a free-range, organic chicken raised by neighbours, and this slow-roasting method cooked it to perfection. All four stars are for that! The rub was ... alright. Tasty enough, but the end result was nowhere near "sticky," like you'd get with a marinade/glaze. I followed other reviewers' advice and stuffed the chicken with quartered onions and minced garlic, nicely flavouring the pan juices from which I made gravy. I also set the chicken to roast on a bed of potatoes and carrots, but here's a lesson I learned from this experience: vegetables should be in small chunks, or sliced thin, because they just don't cook through at that low heat when they're large and chunky, which was my mistake. I'd follow this recipe again for the low-and-long cooking style, but I'd try a different preparation method.

Horseradish Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
I made these for my office Christmas potluck this afternoon, and they were the first item off the buffet table. I only managed to get one of them before they were gone! Followed the recipe exactly, and it couldn't be easier--no chopping at all! Squeezed the filling from a sandwich bag with a snipped-off corner, as a few reviewers suggested (great idea, because I brought the filling, stored in the bag, to the office, and then stuffed the eggs before serving). One note: I used "extra hot" horseradish, but it was in no way extreme or unbearably hot with that much mayonnaise to support it. I will definitely make these again!

Pam's Bierocks

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
Wow, these are delicious! The dough makes a soft "hamburger-bun" shell around the tasty filling. So good I burned my mouth trying to steal bites before they were cool enough to eat! I followed the advice of a couple reviewers, adding one clove of mashed garlic, and some celery seed. I also used a ground beef/veal/pork mixture, which turned out nicely. Baked some immediately, and put the rest into the freezer for future baking. Mmmmm! Lots of work, but definitely worth it.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
I ate one bowl of this soup before I stored the rest in the freezer, and at that time I thought it was pretty good. Perhaps if I'd left in the fridge for a couple of days, it would have tasted even better, as soups and casseroles often do. But this is not the case once it's been frozen. Yuck. The potatoes "separated" from the rest of the soup--which was easily fixed with a good whisking--but the mushrooms were chewy and tough, and I suspect they don't respond well to the freezer treatment . . . Feel free to correct me if you've had a different experience.

Meatball Potato Supper

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly. It was incredibly bland. I wish I had made meatballs with my own spices, and real onions, rather than commercial soup mix seasoning. I feel this casserole needs--I don't know--mushrooms, onions, carrots, chili pepper flakes, the colour and flavour of some tasty vegetable, something, anything, to elevate it into a memorable dish.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
With the number of stellar reviews for this dish, I hardly need to add my two cents, but I'm here to assure you that, yes, this is darned tasty soup! Other reviewers suggested adding extra ham, a couple more potatoes, and some diced carrots, which advice I'm glad I followed. Also happy that I used chicken broth and only a couple packets of chicken bouillon, because the saltiness definitely has to be regulated. This recipe is going into the regular rotation!

Breaded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
Like Catthorn, I'm trying to eat seasonally and inexpensively. Plus, cruciferous vegetables are as nutritious as all get-out, so I'm attempting to add them to my diet. This recipe is delicious, buttery, crunchy, and in no way bitter. Confirms that brussels sprouts aren't just for holiday dinners! Can't wait to try the recipe with b. sprouts and mustard sauce....

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
Easy to make, and delicious, especially when reheated the following day. I doubled the quantity of spices, and used chicken broth instead of water, but regardless of how you tweak this recipe the red wine vinegar topper is an absolute must!

Grecian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
There's very little I can add to previous reviews, except to confirm that this is a simple, delicious marinade, guaranteed to please everyone around the dinner table. I'm very glad I used fresh lime juice, because I don't think lemon would have been nearly as good . . . . The next evening, I put thin slices of cold tenderloin on a green salad with feta cheese and red-wine vinegar dressing, which was equally as tasty. Two easy hot-weather meals I'll be making again!
