Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2005
This is a great recipe. I do make some changes when I make it though. I cut the garlic in half, use twice as much broccoli (usually fresh) and cheese, and use cream in place of the milk if I have it on hand. Makes for a very rich soup but it's a wonderful treat. I usually serve it with a garden salad, and hot crusty bread.

Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
My family really enjoyed this with a few changes that I made. I cooked the macaroni first, substituted cream of mushroom for the cream of chicken as that's what I had on hand, added some garlic powder and cayenne pepper, and sprinkled french fried onion rings on top. The only other change I'll make in the future is to saute some onions to mix in to give it a little more taste.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
Although I didn't follow the recipe to a tee, it turned out wonderful. I left out the jalapeno (didn't have one) and the cilantro (don't like it) and I was a little concerned it wouldn't taste as good as everyone here had mentioned but not to worry! My entire family enjoyed this side dish and told me to hold on to the recipe.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
This was terrific! Very moist, unlike most of the coffee cakes I've had but absolutely a treat. I've made this twice now for potlucks and both times I received rave reviews. Thanks for sharing it.

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.

Charleston Shrimp 'n' Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
This was really good, as I had 2 lbs. of shrimp I increased the bacon to 5 slices and added 2 ribs of celery to the veggies. I also used Tony's in place of the seasoned salt as we like the heat of it. Those were the only changes I made and those were based on personal tastes. Served over cheesy grits and the entire family enjoyed it.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I really liked this recipe though I used dill relish instead of sweet to suit our tastes. I also cut back on the lemon juice because of the dill.

Christmas Morning Frittata

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This was really good and so easy to make and is an excellent base recipe that is easily adjusted to suit your own tastes. I made several additions to mine such as adding bacon, diced ham, substituted 1 cup of cheddar cheese for 1 cup of mozzarella and added a little freshly grated parmesan as I happened to have it on hand. My husband thought it would be even better with some chopped jalapenos so next time I'll add some when cooking the veggies.

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.

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
My family really enjoyed this, even my daughter who doesn't care for spicy foods. I did follow the suggestions of others and cut the red pepper to 1 tsp. and the salt to 1-1/2 tsp. I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic. The only other change I made was I used chopped fresh chives (2/3 cup) instead of green onions because I couldn't find any that looked good at the store. It was terrific and if I didn't have the kiddos to think about I'd make it full force with the spices to heat it up a little.

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.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I followed the directions exactly with the exception of doubling the sauce recipe. I thought they were really good but I think next time I will only brown the pork chops then place them in a casserole dish, pour the sauce and apples on top and bake covered for 20-25 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken around the chops. Loved how fast and easy this recipe was. Great change from the ordinary.

Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
These were really good but next time I make them I'm going to cut down on the Cajun seasoning by at least half and add cayenne pepper as we found them way too salty for our tastes.

Squash Casserole II

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
I made this for a family gathering and even though I had to substitute wheat club crackers for the butter rounds it turned out really good. Even my teenage daughter who hates squash asked for seconds. Can't wait until my next visit to the farmers market to get more squash.

Chicken In Sour Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
We really enjoyed this recipe. I did make a few adjustments as we like lots of gravy. I subbed 2 cans of cream of chicken soup in place of the 1 can of cream of mushroom (husband is allergic to mushrooms) and added a little milk to thin the gravy out some. The dill and lemon juice added just enough bite to make it a very pleasant treat.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
I'm the worst pie crust maker and this is the first recipe that I have tried that I didn't make a mess of. Was easy to roll out without tearing and transferred to the dish beautifully. Thanks for sharing.
