Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
My daughter eats chicken when I cook it and enjoys it but she's not really a at home chicken person and tonight she said, "I'd even ask for you to make this again". So I'd say it was a big hit! I cut up 3 leg quarters. I used a little less flour than called for and added some corn starch, to make crispier. I double the seasonings but did not use the paprika(didn't have)so I replaced with onion and garlic powder. Even though I only used half the butter called for, I could have cut back more. The skin gave off enough itself. Will make again!

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
These were great. We used grass feed 92/8 ratio, and used light brown sugar, everything else was the same. Made 6 small loaves. I saw people said their sauce was too sweet, I'm not a sweet lover and I thought this was fine, so if your not a sweet lover, use the light brown sugar like I did.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
This is So good. I did convert to 8 servings so I could use the entire package of pasta and sausages and then just had leftovers. I did leave out the crushed red peppers since I had Hot Italian Sausage on hand. Don't forget to drain the cans of tomato....I forgot and I had to simmer for a while to thicken....lol-don't know what got into me???

Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
Had some thawed ground turkey and was looking for something different to do with it and found this. We loved it. I pretty much kept to the recipe, nothing major. I used red onion for the onion, used baby portabella mushrooms for the mushrooms. After cutting up these two I took half and sauteed just a bit, just so I would have different textures in the burger. I also mixed the blue cheese into the meat mix and I pan fried them and didn't have any problems with them falling apart. I did 4 large burgers and cooked 7 mins on each side with out messing with them in between flips. Very juicy and flavorful. It does have a dash more salt flavor than I prefer so next time I will lessen the salt added.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2014
So we're over at the beach and had a LOT of broccoli and was looking for a cold dish to use it with. This one sounded like the Broccoli Salad that I've gotten many times at the deli. I just finished making it and was about to put it in the fridge to cool it before dinner time and my daughter tasted it and loved it. I told her it wasn't ready, since it wasn't cold yet, but she said it was and had to have a bowl now, lol. I only made 2 small changes, only used 1 tsp of pepper(2 seemed like a lot) and I used 2 cups of mild cheddar(what I had on hand). I added more cheddar since its not as strong as the sharp cheddar the recipe called for. To say the least it's a hit and I haven't even served it to the family yet!

Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
I had some extra mushrooms and onions so I sauteed them with the other mushrooms. I also did add an extra can of Cream of Celery and a half can of milk due to some of the other comments and a dash of garlic powder also. If not for the above additions it would have been bland and not as creamy and I would have given a 3. I will say you could really do a lot with this recipe if using as a base and adding your own additions. ******When reheating the leftovers, we added more pepper, garlic salt and some cheese. It really kicked it up a notch!

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
My turkey was only 10lbs so I adjusted the recipe. Only cooked 2 hrs covered and then 30mins uncovered. I've always cooked my turkeys foiled but wanted to try this one with the different seasonings. Very nice. The only reason I gave it a 4 was that I believe the recipe calls for the turkey to be uncovered to long. I was wondering why so many were talking about basting now I know. I would cook longer covered and then just uncover just long enough to brown, no basting required. Having to keep opening the oven door lets too much hot air out. Oh, I also sliced up an onion, put half on the bottom(turkey on top) and the other half inside the turkey.

Squasage (Sausage-stuffed Squash)

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2014
Had this for dinner and it was great, my daughter really loved it. I halved the recipe since there was only 2 of us. I did of coarse use the 1 egg and I did add a dash of salt & pepper to sausage mixture. I'm use to putting water in my pan when cooking these type of squash and only had to cook for 45 mins, then on the last cooking I put at 350 for 30 mins. Cooked perfectly. Wasn't able to really taste the mushrooms so next time I might add just a little more.

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
These chops were so very tender. Not sure why so many sad the dish was bland. We thought it tasted great. I didn't have yukon so I used russet potatoes and I didn't have beef cubes so I use a cup of beef broth and two packets of veg. bouillon(since it called for 3 cubes). It worked well. Must not be as salty as the cubes. I did also salt and pepper the chops before I floured. Will make again, it takes a while but very easy and tasty. The onion flavor was nice.

Zucchini Soup II

Reviewed: May 23, 2014
We loved it, not sure why people felt like they needed to add so many herbs to theirs. I felt like there was lots of flavor by just adding salt and pepper. The vegs really came through with flavor. I did have to make a couple of small changes, I only had half the butter so I finished it with olive oil and I only had 1/4 cup of white wine left to use. I used red onion for the onion. I used my hand blender right in the pot, easier than the big blender. My daughter and I both loved it.

Swanson® Black Bean, Corn and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: May 17, 2014
This chili has so much flavor and is so easy to make! I was a little short on chili powder so I added some extra salsa and cumin to make up on the flavor. I was tempted to add other things as per the comments from others but I usually like to stick to the recipe the first time around. No need to add anything extra, wonderful. The fact that ground turkey is used is a plus, always so light and less calories than gr beef. Added bonus, I was able to use organic blk beans.

Broccoli in Roast Chicken Drippings

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
I thought this had a Wonderful flavor. I could see if your chicken isn't roasted in something very flavorful then your broccoli may not be flavorful. I didn't have to add anything except the garlic and I used 3 cloves that I sliced up(we love garlic). You do need to adjust the amount of drippings for the amount of broccoli. I had 3 small heads of broccoli in the bunch I got at the store. I cut up and I did use the stalks, I just thinly sliced them. I used about 1/2 cup of great drippings. I cooked mine @ 350 for 20 mins. Could have cooked a little longer. I understand that I added the stalks so that is why I had to cook longer than what the recipe called for. I had cooked the chicken a couple of days ago and remembered this recipe so I just saved the drippings and today I pulled it out and used it, so glad I saved it!

Parmesan Roasted Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 5, 2014
Adjusted recipe for 3 ears. I mixed all the ingredients together except for the parm cheese and put on corn. Then I loosely closed up in foil that I put evoo on, no sticking here. I baked at 350 for 30 mins and then opened up and added the parm cheese and then put back in for 10 mins. I was baking chicken at the same time so the time didn't bother me. It was tasty and nice for a chance to try something different but nothing real special with that WOW. True, you don't taste the mayo.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
Pretty much kept to the recipe and I'm glad I did. It was very flavorful. I didn't have a green pepper so I used an orange one to go with my red one. At the end I did add some salt and pepper and a little garlic powder. Yummy. Tonight we just had it with some garlic cheese toast (no pasta) but I think I'll make some mashed potatoes to go with it next time.

Reuben Sandwich II

Reviewed: May 1, 2014
This was a wonderful sandwich, can't wait for my daughter to try it. I usually make corned beef and cabbage but this time I wanted to use my corned beef a different way. I'm so glad I found this recipe, I will make again!

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
This was amazing. I only had 2 pork chops but they were thick so I opted to keep the rest of the recipe the same. I did simmer for 30, and I flipped the chops and recovered them with mushroom mixture after 15mins. Went great with my spinach and garlic cilantro rice. I used some of the sauce over the rice also. YUMMY

Parmesan Tomatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
These were the Best, my daughter and I both loved them. Since it was only the two of us I halved the recipe. I sliced each tomato into 3 slices, nice and thick. I did not have brown mustard so I doubled the Dijon, I think this was perfect(seeing that some said there was too much mustard taste with the brown). I covered top of tomato with mozzarella(more than called for) and used dried parsley on top. This was a nice addition to the T-bones that we grilled. Oh, one more thing, I did preheat the oven to 350 but then as I put them in I turned it to broil for about 4 mins. Some said the baking made them to soggy, no soggy here. The tomatoes stayed firm and nicely browned. I have two more nice tomatoes, I may just have to make this again tomorrow. :) *****made again and this time I used Mama Prancesca's Parmesan & Garlic grated cheese for the reg parm. Yummy

Pork Chops with Apple Cider Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
Had some apple cider left over from the cold weather and was looking for a recipe to help use it up. This was a nice find. I adjusted the recipe for 4 chops, I had two large bone-in chops. The sauce was very flavorful. It did take me 20 mins to reduce to a glaze, no cornstarch needed as some said they used. Just be patient, it's worth the flavor. When browning the chops, make sure not to over cook and you'll have juicy chops. Worked well with a nice fruity white wine.

Rutabaga Oven Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
I bought a rutabaga for the first time the other day and decided to try cooking one. Found this recipe and decided to try. I love the distinct flavor of the rutabaga and coating with the rosemary and garlic worked well. The only con was that they didn't get as crunchy as I'm use to with fries. I cooked 30 mins and then flipped and cooked another 10 mins. I may have had too many on the pan, because they were close together and maybe that's why they weren't as crunchy or maybe this is just how they are. They were a great snack though, will make again.

Grilled Sea Bass

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
Nice change from the way I usually fix my sea bass. We caught these on our last deep sea fishing trip. I doubled the seasonings that was sprinkled on the fish due to other comments, glad I did, but kept the same measurements with the butter mixture. I had a lot of cilantro on hand so I subbed that for the parsley (just my preference). I then poured the butter mixture over the top and baked at 400 for 13 mins.(The time all depends on your fish thickness, adjust and don't over cook.) I didn't need all the olive oil that was called for, just put enough in the bottom of the pan to coat if baking. Mine weren't thick cuts so I don't think it would have done well on the grill, hence the baking. These came out Wonderful. Thicker cuts would be great on the grill. I feel this would work well on several different types of fish.
