Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
delicious. i made one batch with butter and one with shortening and they were both good. used triple sec instead of water, and definitely they did not need to be flattened. refrigerated the dough for an hour and used a cookie scoop. they were really easy.

Sloppied Flank Steak Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
this was REALLY good!! About 3/4 way through the cooking time I took the steak out to chop it and almost threw it out, the sauce looked so watery and lacked flavor. but i went ahead and chopped the meat up and let it cook another hour and a half. so glad i did because it ended up being delicious. DH loved it. Only thing I did different was double the tomato paste, because i had a can and didn't want to waste it. also added an extra tablespoon of sugar to balance out the extra paste. Would have rather had it over noodles or rice instead of sandwiches, but that's personal preference and i will make it that way next time. thanks for sharing.

Turkey a la King

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
Gosh I'm sorry but I didn't like this. I made it exactly as written except substituted chicken for the turkey. It reminded me of something from our school cafeteria when i was a kid. Texture and consistency was fine but seasoning was too bland for all that cream.

Throw-Together Short Ribs

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
These are really good and turn out perfect every time. another taste of home recipe i have been making for a while. the only change i make is to double the sauce because my slow cooker is 5 quarts. this is a great recipe to take to someone who you want to make dinner for instead of the usual casserole dish. just be warned that sometimes short ribs can be expensive (altho worth it). i usually make 3 pounds at a time because they shrink up; since i double the sauce anyway.

Sweet Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
I have made this dish many times. It is one of my go-to sides at pot-luck barbecues. I make it exactly as written but I never use the entire amount of dressing. I always get a lot of compliments on it and requests for recipes. One time I made it with store-bought pre-shredded carrots and i will never do that again because it totally changed the texture. I cut this recipe from the taste of home magazine several years ago. definitely a keeper in my family.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
This was REALLY good! I used Jack Daniels bbq sauce and Newman's Italian dressing. I followed the recipe exactly cooking on high for 4-5 hours. After reading the reviews, I was prepared to make a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce but it was not necessary. But I did simmer for the last half hour with the lid halfway on to let it reduce a bit, and my slowcooker is 5-qt which might make a difference. Did want to say that right after I made the sauce, I thought it tasted odd but was delicious after cooking. So I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for the recipe.

Saucy Beef and Vegetable Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I left out the zucchini because it didn't look good at the market and the original poster said it is good with or without. Without thinking I added the entire teaspoon of salt to the meat mixture which was a mistake since there wasn't as much filling. So it was a little salty. I usually don't care for savory recipes with biscuit or pastry topping but I liked this because the topping did not seem soggy at all. And the filling stayed moist without being runny. good addition to my weeknight dinner rotation. thanks for the recipe.

Fried Corn with Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Very good for such an easy, quick, and inexpensive dinner. I served it with some Ore Ida french fries on the side and it was a very filling meal. I think it cost about $5 to prepare the recipe if you have the spices on hand (and they are common ones).

Hearty Hash Brown Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
I wouldn't serve this to company or anything, and the flavor is not very sophisticated. That said, my kids love this dish and I think it's pretty good myself. A great weeknight dinner. Too mushy for my husband, I have made this a couple of times when he won't be home. Good left over, too, but not with the french fried onions.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I wanted to love this recipe, I really did. It might have been the brand of crushed tomatoes I used, because the soup was way too acidic for me. I don't usually like tomato dishes that call for sugar, but in this case I should have listened to the reviewers who added additional sugar.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Sweet...yes. Spicy...yes. Sticky...no Very good flavor but I had the same problem other reviewers mentioned about the sauce not thickening up. I will make it again with the following changes: 1. Dredging the chicken strips in flour before sauteing, which will help them brown better and help thicken the sauce. 2. Saute on med.-high heat instead of medium. The heat called for in the recipe is not enough to sear the chicken. 3. Simmer the sauce while I am preparing the chicken, then add to the chicken as called for. Because, it took much longer than 8-10 minutes to reduce the sauce, and the chicken dried out. I should add my husband loved this recipe. The flavors are good. Thanks.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
This dish was delicious. I wasn't sure how well the spinach would wilt with the method of draining the pasta over it, but it worked well. I would suggest using a lot of spinach because it wilts down to almost nothing. I am not sure how much I actually used (it filled up my colander) but when I got done it sure didn't look like a lot. My husband raved about this dish and ate about 3 big plates full. It's easy and different. I used fire-roasted tomatoes because that's what I had on hand, and it worked well.

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
Do yourself a favor and omit the brown sugar from this recipe. I have a sweet tooth, but the sugar in this cider is unnecessary. It left a film on my teeth I can't get off even after brushing twice! That said, the spices and flavor of the cider were wonderful. I didn't have any problems with my coffee maker, either. Although, I think it would be easier to do as others suggested and make it on the stovetop or slow cooker. I love the orange in it. Will make again with no added sugar.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
Great recipe. If you want it less fatty, use a rump roast instead, and look for one at the store with less fat. Really any roast will work. I liked the gravy, and didn't think it was sweet, just tangy. Delicious with mashed potatoes.

Apricot Brisket

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
I don't think I'll make this recipe again, but if I do I will use 2 packets of onion soup mix. i needed a lot of water so that my brisket would not dry out, and the gravy did not have enough flavor. Just so-so, and DH did not care for the apricots.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
Very good. I did not thicken the sauce, either. Next time, though, I will not put as much yogurt in it. 1/4 cup is not very much but I still felt a very strong yogurt taste, a little too much for my liking. But, delicious nonethless.

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2006
I am surprised something this easy could be so delicious. My husband said it was the best roast beef sandwich he has ever had. I did as the other reviewers suggested and cooked the peppers and juice with the meat. I only used about half the juice and it was wonderful. The beef shredded easily after about 7 hours.

Chicken Jalfrezi

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
Delicious! I made this with the "Peas Rice" recipe also from this site. Very good together. This recipe took a little time to put together but it was worth it. Nothing difficult, but grating the onion did leave my arm pretty tired! Will definitely add this to my recipe collection. Thanks!

Elaine's Sweet and Tangy Loose Beef BBQ

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
Not bad, but not great either. Maybe it's just my personal taste, but I would prefer less tangy and more smoky. Of course, I should have known by the "sweet and tangy"! Still, I thought it tasted a little strange.
