Basil Pan-Seared Scallops over Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Instead of pasta, I made a bed of wilted spinach and artichoke hearts and placed the scallops on top. This is the same meal that I had at one of Seattle's nicer restaurants that cost $175.00 for two. Although not quite as tasty as the restaurant scallops, it was certainly a close second for a fraction of the price.

Wilted Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
An easy dish to make and very tasty. I used the spinach as a base for some pan seared scallops and added some artichoke hearts. This was the same meal that I had at one of Seattle's nicest restaurants. The meal cost $175.00 for two. This recipe, although not quite as tasty as the restaurant, was certainly close and for a fraction of the cost. Thanks for the recipe!

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I made this without any changes EXCEPT... all this will NOT fit in a 5 qt. slow cooker. I put everything in except the cabbage. After cooking all the other ingreadents, I removed the meat and some of the vegetables then put in the cabbage and cooked untill cabbage was tender... I think that probably worked out better because the cabbage would have been over cooked and mushy if it had cooked for eight or nine hours. As it worked out, the cabbage was perfectly cooked after being in the cooker for an hour.... The finished product of this concoction was delecious.

Mom's Country Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I cut the recipe in half and used butter instead of oil. I used the gravy to make biscuits and gravy. The serving sizes are small. A serving size for three made just the right amount for one person.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
WOAH NELLIE!!!! Talk about a moist and delicious chocolate cake! WOW!!! Now that's some kind of wonderful cake!! First chocolat cake I have made and it came out perfect. I made it just like the recipe said with one exception.... I used 3/4 cup of kahlua instead of 1/2 cup just to finish off the bottle. I filled the cavity with strawberries and dusted the whole thing with powdered sugar. I'm making another cake for Thanksgiving dinner to take to a friends house. It deserves MORE than five stars.... I'll make this again....

My Mother's Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
It was a little too dry for my taste... There are other mac and cheese recipes that I've tried that I like better.

Chili Dog Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I made no changes to the recipe and I loved it. If you don't give this one five stars, you don't love hot dogs.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
If you grow your own tomatoes, October is the time of year to bring in all those green tomatoes that aren't going to have time to ripen before the frost arrives. I had two handfuls of little green one plus a few that were good size. However I used a less butter and instead of the crackers, I used corn meal because that the way my grandmother made them. I'm sure the crackers would be good also. For people that have never had fried green tomatoes, the taste is unique and the first time you have them you may wonder what all the fuss is about... I'm here to tell you that fried green tomatoes are one of my very favorite treats. I've served them with a meal and also as an appetizer. I give this recipe a solid five star rating. This is the way us country folks fix our fried green tomatoes!!

Mom's Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
I added 1/4 of a green pepper and left out the smoke flavor because I like one and not the other. As far as rateing my finished product, it was pretty good but I'm still looking for the perfect recipe for me...

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Cod is my fish of choice and this recipe is excellent. I did opt mayo for the egg white and added some old bay spice as well. It is definately a keeper and I look forward to having this again in a few days!!

Slow Cooker Beef Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I fixed this using all canned vegetables just like the recipe stated. However I did add a few things... I added a can of peas, two celery stalks, seven small green onions, half of a green pepper and finally one medium size jalapeño pepper. THe pepper gave it just a little bit of zip. I thought it came out just perfect for me!!!

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Excellent recipe for pinto beans. I like mine a tad hot so I used two jalapeno peppers. I also added one half of a green pepper just because I like them. I'll make these again.

Shrimp Creole

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
I made this exactly like the recipe stated and I loved it. Every bite contained a tasty shrimp. The only thing I would change would be to about half the cayenne pepper. I know creole is suppose to be hot but the pepper hid the taste of the green peppers, onions, and celery. You have to have the rice with this to really complete the tasty treat.

Honey Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Made this exactly as the recipe stated and the finished product was as good as any I've had at restaurants. Oh... one more thing... they were done after four hours on high. The meat just fell off the bones. Yummmmy.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
This was a darn good soup. I did make a few changes. I added some fresh mushrooms and sauted with the meat. I also added fresh carrots and a small can of mexican style corn. Instead of stew meat, I had a New York steak that I had frozen a week before. I cut up the steak and used it instead of the stew meat. The 8 qt. slow cooker was full to the top! I cooked on high for five hours and it came out EXCELLENT.

Slow Cooker Cream of Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
The soup didn't have a lot of flavor so I added a can of corn and made it into a corn chowder. After that I thought it was a little better.
