Last Minute Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
Good with some extra seasoning. I added no-salt spice mix to the potatoes and to the soup mixture. I used veggies I had on hand (frozen broccoli, peas/carrot mixture. Next time might switch to cheddar cheese soup and or add some cheddar on top. Tasty, easy, and very adaptable!

Cheese Stuffed Turkey Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
Easy to make with on-hand ingredients. I spiced it up with some garlic and onion powder, sazon from Goya, and Spike rather than salt. Nice change of pace!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Quick and easy to prepare. I followed the recipe very closely, except made things even easier by shaking up all dry ingredients with meat in plastic bag, and then combining the "wet" ingredients and pouring over the veggies and meat in pot. Might add additional spices next time for a bit more flavor, but fine as is... Great for a cool fall evening!!

Corn Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Just the comfort food we were looking for on a cool fall night! Used mexi-corn for a bit of color, smart balance light instead of butter, and fat free sour cream, with (I believe...) equally yummy results. Didn't have cheddar, so mixed in a bit of mozzarella, but I think this might be just as good without the cheese. Yum!!!

Lime Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Great flavors! Used olive oil with 1+ tbs. minced garlic, but otherwise kept to recipe. Might try it baked vs. fried next time. Nice new taste for chicken!!

Teriyaki Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
Mmmmmmm!!! Since it's called Teriyaki Turkey Breast, I figured I'd try it w/ teriyaki sauce instead of soy. Used 1/2 the amount of sugar, and a boneless breast (turned upside down), AND made it in the slow cooker (low, 8 hrs.) instead of the oven. All in all, great tasting, if a bit dry. Next time I'll cook it less time and/or start it still semi-frozen, but not bad at all!! Great recipe!!!

Kitchen Sink Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
Great combination of flavors! I added a bit more bread crumbs than called for, and ground sirloin helped to make texture a bit more firm, but still less "loafy" than other recipes. Not a problem though. Will probably try it again soon, possibly w/ some more veggies, such as green peppers, corn, etc...

Mom's Red Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Not the best nor worst scalloped potato recipe here. Used low sodium cream of celery and broccoli cheddar soups. Might exchange cream of mushroom with the cream of celery if I make it again. Switched oven to broil for 5 or so minutes when done to brown the cheese; and let it "settle" for at least 10 min. or so after baking, to solidify.

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Excellent marinade! Only change was to use black vs. white pepper as that's what I had on hand. I marinated cubed beef and veggies all day and grilled up kebabs on the grill. Really well blended flavors-- Brought out the best of the meat and veggies! Mmmmmmm!!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Not bad, unlike others, used the cheapo bbq sauce and Italian dressing I had on hand, and it was quite tasty... Will try again with other varieties of sauce and dressings. Will also cut back on sugar next time... Maybe substitute honey?

Impossibly Easy Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Impossibly easy, but not impossibly good. With some substitutions/additions, such as added spices (garlic, oregano...) and maybe different soup (mushroom, cheddar broccoli) it might be better, but there's better, and equally easy recipes for chicken pot pie on this site.

Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Quick, easy, and very adaptable. I used ground turkey and browned it with a half package of onion soup mix, along with the onions. I also mixed cheddar and mozzarella cheeses. Great for a last minute rush meal! **UPDATE** Just for the heck of it, I tried this again tonight w/ sloppy joe mix in the meat... Mmmmm, an equally delish. variety!!!

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Interesting mix of flavors. I also used double the potatoes, and added a bit more cinnamon and cloves than called for. It reminded me of a similar dish (don't remember the name...) which has raisins, so I added them as well, which added to the spicy/sweet flavor.

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
Quick and easy comfort food. Okay as is, might try again with cheddar cheese soup, as suggested, possibly add diced tomatoes to the ground beef, and add a layer of veggies.

Slow Cooker Moroccan-Style Chicken and Potato Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Zesty, aromatic, surprising taste blend! I diced potatoes and onions rather than use the packaged mix, and removed skin on drumsticks to cut fat, but otherwise kept to the recipe. Might cut back on red pepper for less spicy palates. A great choice for a cool evening meal!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
Added double the garlic (no vampires here!!) and tried parmesan/romano mix with the seasoned breadcrumbs for an extra tasty treat. Thanks for a quick, easy chicken recipe!

Cheesy Potato Kugel

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I halved the recipe, used frozen shredded hash browns, and used salt free Spike rather than salt, but otherwise kept to the recipe. Good taste, but next time I think I'll do more to spice it up a bit. Looking forward to some leftovers tomorrow for breakfast...! Thanks for a good potato side-dish!!

Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Looking for meatballs to take to a potluck. Great choice, with a few changes. I doubled the sauce (will triple next time) and added more honey as suggested by others. Also added a mix of teriyaki and soy sauces. Nice tangy-sweet taste, stayed together well in the crockpot... Let's see how the folks in the office like them!!

Salmon Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Wanted to like this recipe more than I actually did. I too added some extra flavors to spice it up (salt-free Spike, lemon pepper, onion...) but the problem was the consistency. Perhaps doubling the recipe would make a better loaf (?) I wanted to give the loaf a try, but found myself wishing that I had made patties instead... Not bad, but not great.
