Apple Cole Slaw

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
What a great refreshing slaw recipe. Instead of chopping my apples and carrot, I julienned them. Like other reviewers, I reduced the amount of sugar. I also added some raisins. I waited to dress the slaw just before serving to reduce that "watery" consistency it sometimes gets. I served this along side Apple/Maple Turkey burgers and Sweet Potato Fries. What a wonderful meal. I will definately make this again.

Candied Yams

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
These were great yams. I have been making sweet potato casseroles for years, but not the candied variety. It was a nice change of pace. I did however make some changes. For those who said or were concerned about them being "watery or soupy", here is a solution. The canned yams need to be dried. You can "dry" them by draining them and putting them on a lightly greased sheet pan. Put them in a 200 degree oven for 1 hour. Now put them in a casserole dish. I sprinkled mine with a light dusting of cinnamon. I then put pea size dots of butter over them. I didn't use the required amount of butter stated...it was too much for my taste. I sprinkled about 1 tbs. of white sugar over the cinnamon and butter. I then spread the brown sugar over it and baked according to directions. It came out great and not too sweet. It had a sticky (not watery) glaze on it like I remembered them to have. I didn't use the marshmallows. I will save those for my sweet potato casserole. I will definately make these again.

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This was a simple economical meal. My dad used to fix this when I was little. He ate it quite a bit when he was in the Army. I, like other reviewers seasoned the meat, and added onion and garlic. I actually made the "creamed gravy" seperate, and then added the meat to it. I served mine over homemade biscuits with a side of steamed peas. Dad usually served ours on toast points and occasionally on biscuits. I had to laugh when I saw the SOS. I wander if it stands for what I think it stands for? Thanks for a simple recipe that takes me back.

Pork Chop and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
This recipe got good reviews. I made it tonight. It didn't turn out like it was supposed to. Other than adding some seasonings, I followed the recipe exactly. After about 45 minutes, my pork chops were done, but the potato/onion mixture was a soupy mess, and the potatoes weren't done (and they were sliced thin). I had to remove the pork chops and return it to the oven for another 20 minutes. I returned the pork chops and added the cheese and put back in the oven to let the cheese melt. This reminded me of a recipe my dad tried years ago from a magazine. It was called Poor Man's Steak. Same concept sliced potatoes, onions, and meat. Except the meat was raw hamburger, and the soup was added without the milk. This dish tasted good enough to try again, but next time, I will not add the milk...just an additional can of soup.

Cheeseburger Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
This was a delicious creamy soup. I had it last night and I am having it again tonight. Soup is my one of my favorite go to meals in the winter. So I am always on the lookout for a good soup recipe. This was like a cheeseburger in a bowl. The only things I changed was, I added some Velveeta shells and cheddar that I had leftover from the night before. This thickened it up a bit, so I had to add a can of evaporated milk to thin it out. This made it even richer. I will definately make this again.

Corn Dog Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
This was great. A corndog without the stick. I used low-fat hotdogs and egg beaters, as it was what I had on hand. I left out the celery...personal taste. It came out great. I was worried about it being dry, but it was moist and delicious. I will definately make this again. Thanks for the post.

Chicken a la King I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
This was hearty and tasty. I did make some changes to suit my families taste. I sauteed garlic and onions with the mushrooms and left out the green pepper and pimento. I used chicken broth instead of water. I cooked it slowly and added some frozen peas and carrots at the end and served it over biscuits. Just a few notes. Once you add the flour, let this mixture cook over med/low heat. This mixture should not get bubbly, but creamy. Cook it for a few minutes. This will make sure the flour is cooked and not leave a raw taste. Make sure all liquids are added at room temperature. After you add the bouillon, water, milk and reserved mushroom liquid do not bring this mixture to a boil. This makes the sauce thicker than it needs to be. Let it cook slowly until it gets to the consistency that you want.

Chocolate Pudding Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This was simple, fast, and cured our chocolate craving. I had some graham crackers on hand, so I made my own crust. I used 2 (1.34 ounce) boxes of instant chocolate pudding and 2 1/4 cups of milk. This made for a thicker, richer "pie" like filling. It yielded enough to fill the whole pie crust. After chilling, I topped it with a layer of whip topping and garnished with chocolate shavings. So simple, but so good.

Fried Okra

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Fried okra is the best. I am from the south, and it was a staple for Sunday dinner in the summer. There wasn't any nice looking fresh okra available, so I used frozen. I too used half cornmeal and half flour, and used a buttermilk/egg mixture. I dusted the okra in flour prior to putting it in the egg mixture. This ensured that the coating would stick. I didn't add any extra seasonings, as simple is best for this dish. This isn't the healthiest way to eat okra, but as an occasional treat, it is fine.

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
This was just ok for me. The flavor was rather bland. All I could taste was the cayenne pepper, and I didn't even use the amount stated. Maybe if I play around with more spices, I might get better results. It sounded good, but was very disappointing.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Wow! This is my first time roasting a chicken, and it tuned out perfect. It was so juicy and flavorful. The only thing I did different was rubbing the outside of the bird with margarine. Now that I can roast a perfect bird, I am going to try it with different seasonings and herbs. Thanks for a great fool-proof recipe.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
These peppers were great with some modifications. First I sauteed an onion and added 2 cloves of minced galic. I added the ground turkey and cooked until it was 3/4 of the way done. I added fresh oregeno, the rice and a 15 oz can of tomato sauce. I cooked this mixture for about 15 minutes until most of the water was absorbed. The rice wasn't completely done, but cooked the rest of the way in the oven. I did not discard the tops. These help with moisture as well as makes a nice presentation. I did not baste with sauce. I put 2 cups of water in the dish. This "steamed" the peppers and kept them moist.

Campbell's® Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
I made this tonight for dinner. I used crushed Ritz crackers mixed with butter for the topping. I made a couple of modifications. I added some sour cream and green onion. My grandmother added these to hers and I loved her Tuna Noodle Casserole. A great comfort food!

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
The taste was just ok for us. I followed the recipe exactly. I followed other reviewer's and baked them on a wire rack. These nuggets took way longer than the specified time to cook. They were anything but crispy, and didn't turn brown. I had to broil them to get a good color on them. A total disappointment. I will keep looking for a suitable nugget recipe.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
My husband made this last night. It was wonderful. I am not a fan of flans "eggy" texture, but this was creamy and delicious with a cheesecake flavor. We both love cheesecake and he loves flan. The best of both in an easy to prepare dessert. We will definately be making this often. Thanks for the post!

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
This made for a light refreshing dinner. I did add extra jalapeno. I served with herbed rice and steamed asparagus. I almost didn't make it when I saw the calorie and fat content. This must be a typo. A 6oz piece of talipia has roughly 140 calories. The mango has roughly 110 for 1 cup which is what my mango chopped up came out to. That is of course divided into for 2 people. The olive oil is high caloric and fat, but it is in the marinade. Most stays behind in the bag. The calories in the rest of the ingredients is small. Nutrition facts on the website need to be more accurate. Great dish. Thanks for posting.

Creamy Herbed Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
I don't know why more people hasn't tried this recipe. It was a great last minute meal option. I made the meatballs with turkey and baked them. I made the sauce with a couple of changes. I used skim milk instead of water and stired in some low fat sour cream at the end. This was really good over egg noodles and a side salad. Thanks for the post.

Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
These burgers were great with some adjustments. First I didn't use the feta. I know the recipe said Mediterranean-Style burger. I make Mediterranean burgers. They are made with feta cheese, olives, and tzatziki sauce. These are Pesto burgers. After they were done, I put on Provolone cheese and smeared pesto on a toasted bun. Garnished with boston lettuce and tomatoes. Wonderful.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
With the good reviews and the simplicity of the dish, I decided to make it for dinner tonight. Wow, this is possibly my least favorite dish I have made from this site. It has almost no flavor. I think the bouillon ruined it as it was all I could taste. The only substitution I made was using frozen stir fry vegetables. I can't believe so many people loved this dish.

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
This was an easy and delicious twist on lasagna. I made this awhile back and enjoyed it. I made it again last night and made some changes. I made my own alfredo sauce and added prosciutto to the filling and added both mozzarella and fresh grated parmesan near the end. Thanks for a great recipe.
