Mom's Dill Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
After making a few minor changes such as adding a little celery seed and increasing the sour cream to 1 cup and decreasing the dillweed to 1-1/2 TBSP, we found this to be a wonderful potato salad.

Shrimp Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
These had a great flavor after some minor adjustments but they seemed incredibly greasy to me. I used less mayo as suggested and added a little cajun seasoning and parsley as well as adding a little Italian breadcrumbs. I did pan-fry (with very little oil) to get them brown and then popped them in the oven to cook through, though I think next time I'll just bake them from the start and try using half the crackers and half breadcrumbs. I might also add an egg to the mix to help bind the ingredients better.

Funnel Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
This was really good. I gave it 4 stars due to the fact that I did make a few changes. I added 1 tsp. of vanilla to the egg/milk mixture and also increased the baking powder to 2 tsp.

Mini Salmon Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
This was pretty good. I doubled the recipe to feed my family of 4. It seemed a little dry to me so next time I'll either leave the liquid from the salmon in it or cut down on the bread crumbs. I will definitely be adding some Cajun seasoning and dill to the loaf next time.

Kitchen Sink Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
Wow this was really good and very, very simple to make. I made it when my family was visiting and I thought my brother was going to make himself sick eating so much. LOL! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Seafood Gumbo Stock

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Wow, this is incredible stock. I omitted the cloves as I didn't have any on hand but you'd never miss them. Used this for my gumbo and want an incredibly nice depth it added. Will definitely be making this one again and again.

Garlic Alfredo Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
What a quick easy meal. This is our 2nd time to eat it and we still love it. I use a little extra garlic to suit our tastes and this time I actually cooked the fish in a skillet versus the oven simply because I didn't want to heat up the kitchen when it's 100+ outside. Excellent both ways.

Blender Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
This is a good recipe when you're in a crunch. I followed the recipe exactly except I did add about 1/4 tsp. more garlic powder to suit our tastes. Though I would cut back to 2/3 cup vinegar especially if you're serving immediately.

Shrimp and Crab Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
This was ok. I found myself adding garlic & creole seasoning to give it some flavor. I still thought it was missing something but it was a good base to start with. My family enjoyed it more than I did so I'll probably be making it again but will find additional seasonings to jazz it up a bit.

Buttermilk Biscuits I

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
These were really easy and delicious. I don't keep self-rising flour around so I made my own (4 cups flour, 2 tsp. salt, 2 Tbsp. baking powder) then followed the directions, though I didn't brush them with buttermilk. The were terrific.

Cranberry Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
I gave it 4 stars since I made several changes. First I increased the berries to 1-1/2 cups and left them whole. Next I added an additional egg and 3 Tbsp. of sour cream as several people commented the bread was dry and/or crumbly. I also increase the sugar by 1/4 cup. I made an orange/powdered sugar drizzle to go on top. Wow, what a wonderful treat, hubby and I had 2 slices for breakfast when it came out of the oven. Definitely a keeper for the holiday season.

Creole Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Though good they still seemed to be lacking something even with the following changes that I made. I cooked the vegetables in the oil prior to browning the chops and added 3 or 4 cloves of minced garlic. I also omitted the salt and used Creole seasoning and a dash of cayenne pepper in the flour to liven up the chops. Added an additional 1 Tbsp. of Creole seasoning and a few dashes of cayenne pepper to the tomato mixture. I think next time I make it I'll go with my gut instinct and add a couple of stalks of celery to my onions and pepper and see if that's what was missing.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
I honestly don't know what all the fuss is about I thought this recipe was ok, though my youngest daughter seemed to like it better than my normal recipe.

Salmon Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
This was good and really easy. To me it needed something but I couldn't figure out what it was. Maybe I'll be able to tell tomorrow after it has had time for all the flavors to blend.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
Well after reading the reviews here, this is what I came up with. I used shredded chicken and added 1 pkg. of taco seasoning and heated thoroughly. Instead of using chile peppers, I used 2 (7 oz.) cans of verde sauce (tomatillo & chiles) along with the Mexican cream of chicken soup that was mentioned in several reviews. I also substituted white onions for the green as I didn't have them on hand and added more cheese. This turned out wonderful although the sauce was quite spicy and hot. Next time I will cut back to 1 can of Verde sauce. I served them with a Mexican Rice recipe I found on here, fresh guacamole and some beans. Everyone was highly impressed and even my picky daughter asked for seconds.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
These were really good. They tasted very much like the stroganoff open sandwich I make. I made these for my teenagers New Years Eve party and though our family members enjoyed them several of the teens didn't....thus the 4 rating. I did think they were a little dry, I think next time I will probably add some sour cream to the meat mixture.

Cranberry Sauce Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
This was pretty good for a change. It had an Asian flair in my opinion. Only change I made was I added some crushed pepper flakes to give it some zing. Next time I think I'll add additional pepper flakes and maybe a dash of soy sauce.

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
This was wonderful. I did add extra Italian seasoning to the bread crumbs along with some garlic powder. Seasoned the pork with salt and pepper before applying crumb mixture. I had 2 pork tenderloin halves. One I added the crumbs as described the other I rubbed with oil and rolled in the crumbs. Both were excellent and I didn't notice a big difference in the end result. I did bake in a foil tent and let it rest for 15 minutes before serving.

Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This was a gppd base to start with. I did make several changes such as I added a small amount of chopped onion and sauted that with the celery in some butter. Then I added the garlic (5 cloves...we love garlic) and the sliced carrots and cooked for about 1 minute. To that I added 2 cans of beef broth and enough water to come to 2 quarts. Then the tomato sauce along with a can of diced tomatoes, the beef bouillon cubes, the recommended spices which I also added 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, dash of cayenne pepper, dash of tabasco sauce and a little Worcestershire sauce. Added the meatballs after about 5 minutes. I used rigatoni noodles as I didn't have any macaroni on hand and added a can of corn (drained) when these were added along with a squirt of ketchup for the sweetness. Everyone in my household loved this soup. The only thing I'll do differently next time is add additional carrots, maybe add some frozen green beans and/or diced zucchini for some extra veggies.
