Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: May 12, 2004
Sorry, butI didn't think this recipe was very good. The meat fell apart while cooking and, imagining how savory this dish was going to be after adding the onion soup, worcestershire sauce, etc., I was disappointed to find it rather flavorless. I will not be making this again.

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 16, 2004
Very good...my teenage son loved these! Add American or Swiss cheese and bacon (I know...not very healthy)and the normal "blah" turkey burger turns out delicious.

Iced Mocha Fusion Shake

Reviewed: May 22, 2004
This drink is scrumptious! Very refreshing...I wasn't sure if it would be OK made with skim milk, but it was great. I cut back to 2 T. sugar and I couldn't even tell the difference. There's only one problem...as someone else said earlier, it's ADDICTIVE!!

Monte Cristo Sandwich - the Real One

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
IT'S DELICIOUS! Do not bother with other Monte Cristo recipes unless they're deep fried like this. (I know it's not the healthiest, but hey, if you want healthy, eat a salad.) The only change I would make is to add a bit more ham & turkey to each sandwich. Also, it's just not complete without a side of seedless red raspberry jam for dipping. YUM!

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2004
I thought I had all my bases covered by following the other reviews and cutting down on the spices. I didn't even bother to serve it to my family as the beans never appeared to get done. I soaked them for 10-12 hours the night before and followed the instructions to a 'T' as far as cooking time. The soup was extremely thin, unlike any other black bean soup I've ever had. Soooo...like others suggested, I pureed 1/2 the soup and mixed it back in.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2005
This recipe is so good, I actually got my stubborn (but sweet) 17 yr. old son to eat meatloaf for the first time in his life! I have several VERY good meatloaf recipes that I've collected over the years, but he won't touch a single one of them. Granted, he had just come home for dinner after running 7 miles in soccer practice and probably would've eaten anything, but it was still a major breakthrough! Next time I make this, I will follow the suggestion to go easy on the powder from the onion soup mix, as it was a bit on the salty side, but not overbearing. Also, I may add a little drizzle of ketchup over the top the last 15 min. of cooking, just because we usually like some sort of gravy or sauce with our meat. Overall, great recipe!

Frozen Summer Slush

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
Great and simple recipe! Didn't have a heavy "liquor" flavor, and was just perfect on a hot, humid Chicago summer day. Will always keep a batch of this in the freezer!

Gramma's Old Fashioned Chili Mac

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2005
The previous reviewer needs to be a bit less negative and read the explanation of the recipe; it is NOT intended to be like regular chili--I take no responsibility for the name "chili mac"---the recipe is over 50 years old, who knows why they called it that?? That's why I explained in the intro that IT'S NOT SPICY! And, by the way, macaroni is the main ingredient in macaroni and cheese, and, I don't know about you, but I would consider that dish to be pretty all-American...not Italian.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2005
Very good! The only things I did were add about 1 T. of flour to thicken gravy and also add 1-2 T. brown sugar to cut the acidity of the tomato sauce and wine (just a personal preference). Too many mushrooms for my family's liking--I only added a 7 oz. jar, and they were still complaining, but that's just THEM!~ anyway, with the changes, it's a definite keeper.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
Excellent recipe--but I don't know that I would've given it 5 stars without the addition of 1 can each of black and garbanzo beans. It needed a little more "body" and the beans were just the thing. Probably a can of corn in place of one of the beans would've worked well also. The spices were perfect--however, I always like a touch of sweetness to tomato based recipes, so I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar....YUM! I would highly recommend this chili recipe---and for anyone that never usually tries ground turkey in place of ground beef, believe me, you'll never miss it.

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
Excellent! I made the recipe exactly as it appeared, except for the fact that I let it marinate for a full 24 hours (as I get older, I think my taste buds are going). The chicken was tender and very flavorful. I served it with Red Beans & Rice (I used Zatarain's. Living in Chicago,we're not exactly experts on Jamaican/Carribean recipes...we thought it tasted just fine) and corn on the cob. Delish!

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
Great burger recipe! The burgers are very moist, and as most everyone else has stated, very flavorful. We add double cheese (American & Swiss), onion, ketchup & mayo. I toast our buns (which have been lightly buttered and seasoned with garlic powder) on the grill, and altogether it's a mouth-watering feast!

Hot or Cold Vegetable Frittata

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
This is a great recipe! I served this with a Caesar's salad last night for dinner and it was a hit (except with my teenage son, who doesn't like anything that's egg-y or mushroom-y, so that kind of leaves this dish out) I upped the garlic a bit, but that's just a personal preference. This would also definitely work as a brunch dish served with bacon or sausage and fresh fruit.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2006
We really did not care for these at all. The fish itself was ok...not exceptionally flavorful though. The sauce was terrible in our opinion. All we tasted was the jalapeno and cayene pepper. We enjoy spicy foods, but this had no flavor other than !!!HOT!!! The fresh lime juice in the sauce was totally overpowered, as was the oregano, cumin and dill weed. Our last two vacations have been to San Diego, and we've loved the fish tacos that we sampled there....but these had a completely different flavor.

Apricot Marinated Eye of Round Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
This is a very good and flavorful recipe that I plan on using again and again.I used my meat tenderizer to poke lots of little holes in the meat ($24.99 @ Bed, Bath & Beyond...it's a great gadget!) and I marinated it for the full 24 hours. While I still didn't consider it to be as tender as I would've liked, it's ok if you slice it thinly. The combination of flavors is different and wonderful with a pile of mashed potatoes drenched in the gravy on the side. I also had to thicken the gravy up somewhat (I used 1/3 c. flour; cornstarch would be fine too), otherwise it would've been like soup on the plate. I think this actually had a better flavor the second night I served it (we always have leftovers now that our son is off at college!); the cider vinegar had less of a "bite" to it. I cooked it to 170 degrees, which was perfect. Thanks for a great recipe that's different from all of those mushroom or onion soup ones!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
I've been making these for the past year and can't believe I never took the time to give my review of them to say how fantastic they are! The only change I made was to add more chocolate; to the 1/2 c. of butter I add 1 c. milk choolate chips and 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips. That seems to balnce it out perfectly. I have to say, this is probably the BEST recipe I have ever gotten off of this site!

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
This was good after changing it up quite a bit. I used 2 lbs. of chicken, 3 BIG garlic cloves, 1 tsp. cumin and added a 15 oz. can of corn. With having to change a recipe that much, I just don't think it warrants 5 stars. I think it still needs a little kick, so next time I will add more hot pepper sauce and salt and pepper, as mentioned by other reviewers. I DO like how easy it is, though.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I LOVE garlic, but these were too garlicky even for me. My husband said that if he had received these in a restaurant, he would've sent them back. HOWEVER, that said, everything else about them was great. Consistency was perfect, and the oregano gave a great flavor that I never would've thought to add. I WILL be making these again, but I'll definitely be easing up on the garlic!

Hot Mexican Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
We thought this was just "average", and not worth all the hype given it. Compared with the consistency of so many other dips, I found the 1 cup of evaporated milk to make it too soupy for our liking. The leftovers did firm up a bit, which made it more appetizing. Good, but not great.

Chunks of Glass

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
Very tasty and light dessert. I totally omitted the whole graham cracker part; it didn't even appeal to me. I cut the recipe in 1/2 since it was just for my husband and myself, and put it in an 8x8" pyrex dish. I cut it into 9 squares, and it turned out perfectly!
