Seafood Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
This being my first seafood roll experience, I thought it was pretty good. I added the minced celery and additional Old Bay as well, and a healthy dash of white pepper. I thought it a bit mayo-y, but I would think Miracle Whip would be even sweeter/tangier, so I definitely won't sub that. Maybe subbing a little sour cream for the mayo or just cutting back a bit might work for us. But I've got to give it a 4 star for the simplicity and convenience! Green leaf lettuce a must!

Chicken and Spinach Ravioli

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
This was really great. I think its unfair all the reviews stating this recipe is not worth all the work. ALL homemade ravioli is time consuming, and this recipe's filling is delicious. We were being run out of the garden with so much basil, so we topped this with a pesto cream and it was INCREDIBLE. The filling was so good, I used the leftovers (with a little ricotta mixed in) for lasagna roll-ups a couple days later. Thanks for a really good recipe.

Sour Cream Chicken and Stuffing

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
This recipe is a really good base recipe. We made changes for our family's taste, but it really turns out well. I usually bake my casseroles at 375 for that little bit of extra crispness and a perfectly browned top. We ended up baking this almost a full hour, still, at that temperature to get a nice casserole-y, not soup-y, consistency. We cut our breasts in half, patted dry, seasoned lightly and then pan seared in oil (just to get a nice brown outside and better flavor). Like many reviewers, I reduced the amount of curry (using just a sprinkle) because we're not huge fans unless we're eating a curry - just tastes too Indian. This really does turn out great. Served w/steamed broccoli and a light cheese sauce.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
REALLY good. Perfect for the traditional recipe, but we, too, tweaked it a bit for more flavor which is the ONLY reason I 4-starred instead of 5. (But we're Salt-ies). The recipe is great for that, just taste everything right before you pop in the oven. For us, we added another can tuna, a healthy sprinkling of chicken bouillon granules, a touch more salt, pepper, and dried dill then gave a good stir and baked. My casseroles w/cheese and breadcrumb topping I always do this: heat the butter and breadcrumbs in the microwave, mix well then toss in the cheese w/your fingers to coat well. Broil at the end for crunchiness. ANOTHER NOTE - we didn't use 2 pans. Start everything in a big skillet, then after really getting the veggies tender, I added the flour - stirring to coat everything well - then the additional butter, smoothing the mixture as it melts. Then gradually whisk in your milk. Add noodles, veggies, then fold in tuna. ONE PAN!

Monte Cristo Sandwich - the Real One

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
This recipe has replaced my own personal concoction. Now even my husband, who once thought this sandwich was "weird", loves when these are for dinner. We live very rural, so we use raspberry jam, heated, for the dipping sauce most of the time.

Mom's Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
This is surprisingly INCREDIBLE for how simple the ingredients. The second time we made these we ended up mixing the parm with the butter (less messy) and adding some garlic powder. My husband WOLFED these down. Perfect accompaniment to deli-style tomato soup.

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
WOW. We flipped! Loving lamb, this was just over-the-top for us. We served on Valentine's w/a beefy red wine and mint reduction and we almost couldn't stand the flavor. In a good way. The crust is DIVINE.

Food Processor Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
We thought this was incredible. Has an almost chocolate ice-cream flavor to it with the fluffy cream and the cocoa. We assumed this needed to be refrigerated (recipe may have said it, don't remember), but that added to the "ice cream cake" sort of feel. First chocolate cake we were all fighting to polish off in a long time! Thanks for the simple, wonderful recipe.

Ham Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
This recipe just comes together well. Its so simple and great, yet you can modify it as you like. I did several versions on a platter. Its a great way to serve different pickles you've found or received as gifts, from okra to green beans. We did slivers of the scallions paired w/the pickles. We also flavored the cream cheese (that's a great place to sprinkle in some chopped chives or other fresh herbs.) You just won't believe how tasty this recipe is!

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
This was so delicious. The crust is a sturdy, flavorful one that melds perfectly w/the filling - just as pecan pie should. I've never had a pecan pie that was so nutty! Wonderful! Its all about the pecans. My family used to make one w/bourbon, so I added a splash of bourbon to the filling along w/ a pinch of FRESHLY grated nutmeg. This just heightened the flavors and gave some complexity. I also used my food processor to make the dough and it still came out PERFECTLY. Thanks so much for sharing such a great recipe!

Great Green Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
Just DELICIOUS. I, too added red pears that I sliced w/the peel on. This salad was so delicious. I even tossed the dressing a little too early (I don't recommend) and it wilted the greens too much, but it was STILL delicious.

Easy Sausage Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
I'LL GIVE 2 STARS because this recipe has the right basic (but bland) ingredients, but amounts and seasonings are way off. BEWARE folks - this recipe is only 1/3 right! A recipe rating is supposed to be for the recipe as IT is written, maybe w/some MINOR personal changes! I should have read the reviews before preparing, but with the four stars, I thought it would be a SOMEWHAT safe bet. WHOA! You reviewers that are changing the recipe SO much, yet giving it 5 stars, should submit your own winners - they are GREAT, those are the recipes that deserve 4-star ratings!!

Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2005
THESE are Belgian waffles! Make these when what you want is BELGIAN WAFFLES! You must have the ability to gently fold in the whites and the patience to let the yeast do its thing and the waffle iron to heat up between waffles. If you can follow this recipe to the letter, you WILL have the best Belgian waffles. Regular waffles are great in a hurry and usually rely on baking powder, as does Bisquick which gets its distinctive flavor from lots of baking powder. I much prefer the softer, old-fashioned flavor of yeast, which was most definitely NOT overpowering in this recipe. The aroma wafting from the waffle iron about drove my husband, me, and our dog crazy! These waffles are incredible and a treat I have personally only had in restaurants before now. I make waffles all the time, but these Belgian waffles are so delicious, a perfect melding of crisp and soft and the flavor is out of this world. So special I think we've found our new Christmas brunch tradition.

Southern Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2005
Wow. I've spent a lot of time in Louisiana around the coastal areas and have eaten more than my fair share of dirty rice without believing it was as simple as this recipe. The flavors seem so complex! When my husband requested dirty rice to be served alongside my shrimp etouffe, I tried this basic recipe, thinking I would later make changes and create my own using this recipe as the structure. Wow. Completely unnecessary! The ONLY thing I added was a 1/4 t of white pepper and 1/2 t of salt. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
Great recipe. I had leftover scrambled eggs and got the idea from a restaurant commercial (happens to be one of my husband's favorite non-pancake breakfasts). I followed the crepe recipe exactly, and meanwhile cooked some chopped bacon and deli smoked turkey together (its what I had), set that to drain and used the grease for a roux based cheese sauce (milk, velveeta and cheddar - again - what I had). I then nuked my eggs and folded in the meat and enough cheese to our liking. I spooned this mix down the middle of these incredible (and unlike other recipes - sturdy) crepes, covered w/grated cheese and nuked just to start the cheese melting. My husband says they're better than restaurant. I love them - seems complex, but was surprisingly fast and easy. This is the only crepe recipe I would use. Others are too delicate or too gummy.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2004
A good recipe, but we prefer a little less of a sweet topping. Definitely brown "sugar" meatloaf as this is the overwhelming flavor. Thanks, though.

Cinnamon Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2004
This is a much easier and different version of the cinnamon toast I grew up with and now serve to my niece. We always buttered and sprinkled the toast with the cinnamon sugar and THEN toasted it in the oven on an oven-safe cooling rack or broiled it. This creates kind of a crunchy caramelized cinnamon-sugar crust that I associate with cinnamon toast. We tried it this way too (you don't have to watch it so carefully!) and my niece loved it. I think both ways are pretty good and very comforting, thanks for the recipe!

Bagel and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2004
Really good. I made this a while back and forgot to review it immediately but I do remember it turned out. It is very similar to many other breakfast casseroles I have made, but I remember thinking the bagel substitution was clever and really tasty. We halved the recipe and switched out some cheeses, including fresh Parm which we had. Good recipe.
