Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
LOVE this mixture! I screwed up the first time I made it and used kosher salt - bigger crystals than table salt - which is ok if you are using it in something that will dissolve it, but for just sprinkling on things (like on homemade pizza - yum - or subs) it needed to be table salt. Good recipe.

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
I made this recipe tonight and it was a big hit! I followed amounts exactly, except I needed about double the oil to brown the chops (7 came in the package, so I cooked them all and double dipped them in the egg and the bread crumb mixture, after seasoning both sides with salt and pepper.) They were only about 1/2" thick, and 25 minutes was perfect for that size. After browning them for 2 min on each side, I baked them on a rack on top of a cookie sheet and there was no issue with grease - they were crisp and perfect. Next time I might add some garlic salt to the breading mix for a little extra zing. Finally convinced my husband we don't no stinkin' Shake and Bake!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
I am giving this 5 stars because the salsa is pure GENIUS! I added onions, peppers,celery,and plenty of extra seasonings in addition to the whole packet of chili seasoning (like I always do) and almost a whole jar of Pace salsa (which I have NEVER done.) Then, I won the chili cook-off at our local country club yesterday! Who doesn't love salsa? And, I think the vinegar in the salsa gave it just enough zing to be interesting and stand out a tad, while still being traditional chili. Thanks, Deb!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
This was the best and closest to authentic tasting Mexican food I have ever made! My pork roast was only about 2 1/2 pounds so I didn't use the whole 2 cups of broth, but I will next time, as it is this juice with the awesome seasonings mixed with the shredded meat that gives it such a kick. It was frozen when I started so the seasonings didn't really stick to it, but it didn't matter. I thought the cinnamon would be off-putting, but it wasn't at all. This would have made a good tamale filling, if I were more ambitious, but it made hellacious soft tacos and was SO easy! YUM! Thanks for the recipe!

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
YUM! I was only making enough for myself, so I estimated on amounts...I used a little less sugar than my scaled down version probably called for and added olive oil to cut the salty taste because I used salted butter - this sauce was to die for and I am not ashamed to admit I licked the bowl! Next time I will throw some shallots in the mix. Great way to use up my garden goodies! Thanks, PeanutPutter.

Chocolate Cherry Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
YUM! Got great reviews for this cake. The only change I made was to add one teaspoon of veggie oil to the batter because it seemed a little too thick to me, and other reviewers had mentioned doing so. The frosting, which was delish, was a little gritty, but no one complained because it was so darned good. I will take more time next time to disolve the sugar better, maybe use a double boiler? It was so easy and good, it will be a staple for me. Thanks!

Sauerkraut-Stuffed Slow-Cooked Pork Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
I LOVE pork and sauerkraut AND I love my crockpot, but I won't do this again. The flavor wasn't too bad, but the pork dried out horribly. Now, keep in mind that I didn't turn the pork over because it was stuffed and mounded up so nicely... So, I'm not opposed to taking the blame here. Just wanted to share my experience/mistakes!

Sweet 'N' Tangy Freezer Pickles

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
My niece (13) and I made these together and everyone loves them, especially her because she helped! A very nice flavor and a lot easier than regular pickles. Great for when the kids visit - we froze them in sandwich bags and just pull one out when they come over.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I feel bad only giving this 4 stars since I did not even have the correct ingredients - I didn't have teriyaki basting sauce, so I'm sure this would have been great if I would have. I used soy mixed with pineapple juice and it didn't stick to the chicken enough. If it would have, I think it would have made a better base flavor to help balance the strong taste of the ranch dressing.

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
My husband liked this, and I liked it, too, except for the TWANG from the Stovetop Stuffing I used. It was too strong. I think I would use more tomatoes next time and maybe get a different stuffing mix - maybe the kind that comes in a bag that is not quite so overpowering.

Brenda's Pepperoni Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
Wow! My husband (who is usually leery of my Chicken Surprise dishes developed to clean out the fridge) LOVED this and said it was one of my best! I used turkey pepperoni, but I didn't have enough to use it for pan juices, so I just used it for stuffing and used 1/2 lb. of breakfast sausage instead for the browning and sauce part. I also didn't have mozzarella, so I used monterey jack and you could really taste the cheese flavor. I also used 2 cans of Chef Boyardee pizza sauce and a little can of tomato paste in lieu of spaghetti sauce, reserving some from covering the chicken so I could toss the mostacciolli in it and served the chicken on top (added chopped onions to sauce...yum!) This was great and full of flavor. I did not pound the chicken, but butterflied it like another reviewer suggested and it worked out fine. I added about 5 minutes of baking time because of thickness. Next time, I will take another reviewers suggestion and try to use spaghetti to close these bundles instead of toothpicks, because my husband had a hard time getting them out... Yummo, thanks Brenda!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
This was a hit! I added garlic powder and cumin, used kidney beans instead of chili or black beanss..did not like the beer taste (and I LOVE beer) but it could be because all I had on hand was Miller High Life...I added more tomato sauce and it took care of the beer twang. I used a little more chicken and this made a LOT! Fed it to company and froze a bunch. It was great!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
I made this last night for company, and everyone loved it! I had thawed out a whole 3 lb. bag of chicken breasts, so I doubled the artichoke mixture, put it in a 9 x 12 baking dish and cooked it 10 minutes longer than recipe stated. I didn't have garlic pepper or marinated artichoke hearts like others suggested, so I chopped up regular canned artichoke hearts and mixed in a couple teaspoons of garlic from a jar, some garlic salt, and a good bit of black pepper and let it sit in that for a few hours before I mixed in the other ingredients. I also used 1 cup of mayo and 1/2 cup of sour cream, (both light) and it worked out great. I drained and squeezed the artichokes before chopping so I wouldn't have a watery sauce. Also, I put paprika on top before baking and it was a beautiful color. Will make again and again! Thanks for a different twist on chicken, Amanda!

Yummy Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This is a hit every time - a sure thing. I've tried Triscuits, wheat thins and corn tortilla chips and the tortilla chips seem to go over best. This is one people ask for!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This was a hit even though I didn't have wing sauce on hand. I cut up leftover chicken and made the dip with Tabasco instead of the wing sauce. Since then, I have bought buffalo wing sauce and will make it for my next gathering. YUMMY and different than the norm.

Slow Cooker Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
This got rave reviews from all who tried it and it was so EASY! I kept it in the crockpot with cocktail rye beside it and let people help themselves. After it heated in the crock pot for a while, I did add more thousand island dressing because it needed that extra zing. The only drawback is that some people do not care for Reubens, and for those you must have a few other options available. Those who do love reubens, LOVE LOVE LOVE this dip and want the recipe.

Pizza Salad II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I am giving this 5 stars because I think the flavor would have really popped if I would NOT have used TURKEY PEPPERONI which has much less flavor. Also, FYI, this make a BUNCH of salad. If you only have a few couples eating, you may want to halve this recipe. I served it with meatball subs and it was well received.

Olive-Cucumber Finger Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
Not just a great appetizer -- I love the taste of this, even when I don't go to the trouble to use the olives. I just keep containers of cucumbers in the vinegar/water mix and the cream cheese mixture in the fridge so I can throw together a sandwich anytime. I don't even measure the ingredients, and it still comes out great. Thanks for giving me another way to enjoy my garden cukes!

Teriyaki Tuna

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This was so easy and SO good! I even used frozen (instead of fresh) tuna steaks that were also smaller than what were called for and this STILL turned out great. I didn't measure the olive oil or the teriyaki marinade (I used Game Tame teriyaki marinade). The sauce was great and also was to die for on top of the shredded UNCOOKED carrots, and I was a little skeptical about those - sounded too easy to taste good, but they went perfectly with the fish and sauce. A very nice dish. This was a winner!
