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!!

Yellow Squash and Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Light, flavorful, great fall side-dish recipe! I went 50-50 yellow squash and zucchini to add some color, but otherwise followed recipe exactly. It might just be my oven, but it needed at least 10 min. more time than recipe suggested. Thanks for a keeper!!

Plum-Glazed Cornish Game Hens

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
First time cooking Cornish Game Hens. Reduced the recipe down to just two birds, but thankfully kept the sauce the same. Mmmmmmm! To reduce fat, I skinned the hens before putting them in the crockpot and put them in breast down to make them extra juicy. Fancy Valentine's Day dinner with little or no extra work! Thanks!!

Beer Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
Quick, easy and wonderfully flexible recipe! I followed advice of previous reviewers and cut amounts on both broth and beer, and the consistency came out just right. Also added flour (cut out salt, plenty in broth and tomato sauce/paste) and spice (added curry, my favorite-- See spicy slow-cooker beef stew w/ curry...Mmmm!!) all together in plastic bag and shook to coat. Might leave out the cabbage next time, but it was fine. Thanks for a cold weather keeper!!

Pear Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Had a wonderful crop of pears this summer, so I've been searching for interesting pear recipes. This is an easy, adaptable recipe with great results! I cut back on the sugar, added honey, cinnamon and cloves. Make sure that the pears are well ripened to give full flavor! Thanks!!

Honey Soy Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
Just so easy and flavorful!! I used rice wine vinegar instead of balsamic but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Marinated about 6 hrs. in the fridges and the flavors blended together so well... What a wonderful light, easy way to enjoy fish!

Bowler Beef Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Tasty marinade!! Easy to find ingredients, moments to put together, YUM!! Mixed it all up, poured it in a ziploc bag, and placed london broil cut in the the marinade before leaving for work. 10+ hrs. later, I broiled it in the oven for about 15 min. each side, and served with baked potato and a salad. Great flavor, super tender meat!! Might marinate over night next time... Thanks!!

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.

Mexican Cucumber and Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Experimenting with some new cuke recipes with the TONS of fresh from the garden beauties we've gotten so far this summer... This was an interesting mix of flavors, not the best but not the worst either. Only change I made was regular vs. baby carrots. Wondering how it might be different/better with lemon juice instead....

Apple and Brown Sugar Corned Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Mmmmmmmmmmmm!! Not a big fan of "traditional" corned beef and cabbage, so this was an interesting idea to try. I halved the recipe, changed apple cider for juice, added three cut apples, left out the onions and used the regular potatoes I had on hand vs. red. Reading other reviews, I decided to wait 'til the last hr. to add the chopped cabbage, so it still had good taste/texture. The sweet/salty flavor mix was wonderful, and this is how we're eating corned beef and cabbage from now on!!

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!

Best Ever Kabob Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Simple, easy and flavorful blend! Marinated chicken breast, sirloin, and veggies for approx. 6 hrs. Left proportions as is, but might add more chili sauce next time for added flavor.

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...

Foil-Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
Good flavor, but I think the recipe might have called for too much cornstarch, as the sauce came out sort of clumpy! I'll use half the amount next time. Otherwise, a good mix of flavors. I used diced chicken breast rather than thighs, but otherwise stuck to the recipe exactly. Served over white rice... The Hoisin sauce makes all the difference-- Don't leave it out!!

Wildfire BBQ Beef on Buns

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Quick, easy, and honestly, just about as full of flavor as most beef barbeque with double or triple the ingredients/prep time! I used a smoke-flavored barbeque sauce and added red and green peppers the last hour. Cooked on low for 8 hrs. Leave the lid open to absorb extra liquid the last half hour. Leftovers should be just as good tomorrow!!

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Loved it!! No changes, except switched feta for parmesan cheese, and left out the salt. The pinch of nutmeg was an interesting addition!! Great breakfast!

Spinach and Spaghetti Squash Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Decided to use the whole squash, so I doubled the recipe, except kept it a just 3 whole eggs, and 1 can (12 oz.) plus just a splash more reg. (skim) milk, as the mixture seemed kind of runny. For extra flavor, I added onion and garlic powder, Mrs. Dash, some parmesan cheese and a bit of nutmeg. Two deeelish. quiches! Will make again, possibly in just one casserole dish...

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!

Carrot Casserole

Reviewed: May 24, 2008
Good basic recipe! I didn't have cream of celery soup, so used (low sodium) cream of mushroom, and added no salt Spike rather than the salt and pepper, but otherwise stayed with the original recipe. I could see myself making it again, perhaps adding a mix of veggies and/or mushrooms... Great comfort food! Thanks!!
