Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2010
When I made this, I had never had a fish taco in my life, so I had nothing to compare it to, but I gotta say YUMM!! My husband who doesn't like fish loved these, especially the sauce and beer batter. After making it a few times, I've come up with a way we like it best. I've always used tilapia, because that's what I always have on hand. I sprinkle a little seasoning salt on the battered fish right after it comes out of the oil. I didn't have capers the first time I made it, and we loved it, so I've never used them. I usually add more jalapeno and cayenne (depending on who's eating), double the cumin and dill weed, I add bay seasoning, and I put a few cloves of garlic in the sauce. Sour cream is interchangeable with yogurt, I use whatever I have on hand. Pico de gallo is a must for us. I make it from a recipe on this site. I've tried flour tortillas and fried corn tortillas and the fried corn tortillas win every time. I have enjoyed it with flour tortillas and grilled fish (for healthiness) and I like it, but my husband and I far prefer the whole fried deal. A+

Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
I love this salad. The first time I made this, I made as written and it was way too mayo-y too sweet and I really didn't care for the eggs. The second time, I omitted the eggs, added a little bit of red onion, I used a whole large head of broccoli, a large head of cauliflower (it was probably more like 4 cups each) 2 cups of mayo, sugar to taste, a pack of bacon, a 8oz bag of shredded cheddar and a splash of balsamic vinegar in addition to the white wine vinegar. Instead of layering, I mixed it all together. This will be staple at my house. Delish!

My Amish Friend's Caramel Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
The first time I made this, it tasted burnt, maybe because I cut it in half, without changing the boiling time. Yet, it was still strangely addictive. The second time, I also cut in in half (I used 1 bag of microwave popcorn both times) it tasted better. I never had problems with coating the corn and there was tons of caramel. My advice when you put it in a container, seal and and put in on a high shelf or you may eat it all in one sitting. For relatively easy cleanup, put a lot of butter on the cookie sheet (or whatever you use) and get the pans and dishes in hot water as soon as you're done using them. This was great, I'll make this oft. Thanx!

Chewy Red Raspberry Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
I made this exactly as written, except I didn't measure the jam, I just spooned it over the mixture until it covered most of it. Maybe it was because of that, but I found these a tad on the sweet side. I think when I make these again I'll use less sugar. Other than that, these were great.

Mini Cheesecakes III

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
These tasted really yummy, though I didn't have lemon on hand so I just omitted that. However, they were not very attractive, so I don't think I would make them for company.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
These are great. I made exactly as written, except I used homemade raspberry jam that had seeds and it was fine. Delicious.

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
Very Yummy. I tasted this right after I made it and It was not very good, but after hanging out in the fridge for a few hours it was awesome! I usually add crushed red pepper, black pepper, seasoning salt and fresh garlic and I didn't have green onions so I used red. Delish

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Delish! I made these as written, except I did half almond, half vanilla extract and I didn't measure the powdered sugar for rolling them in. I will keep this recipe.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I had a boxed cornbread mix that I knew wouldn't be enough so I used this recipe too. There was no comparison. This was WAY better. It was fluffy and delicious. The only thing I did differently was cut it in half and I used 2 small eggs (instead of 1.5). I will never used the boxed stuff again.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
Great recipe. I make it pretty much as is. I omit the green pepper because I rarely have them, I use diced tomatoes instead of sauce and I don't measure, but I'm sure I use more spices than called for and I add garlic. YUM!

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
The first time I made this (as written) it was way too thick and creamy for my tastes. However, I love this recipe as a base. I agree with some other reviewers that it has too many artificial flavors. The way I like it is with homemade cream of mushroom soup from this site, (though I will use the canned stuff in a pinch) 3 or 4 oz. of cream cheese, maybe 6 or so oz. sour cream (I'm not much for measuring) and I don't usually have brown gravy mix so I use beef soup base and spices. I always use fresh garlic, onions and mushrooms, and more milk to make it the right consistency.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
What a great recipe, I made this to use in a stroganoff recipe and I was impressed how good it was on its own. What a great alternative to the canned stuff. All I had was an 8oz pack of mushrooms, I didn't puree the veggies, I used whole milk and I didn't have Sherry.

Better Than Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
This is awesome! What a great way to use squash. I've made this twice in the last week. The first time I made as-written and it was excellent, the second time, I increased the recipe by half (to make a thicker pie) and upped the spices significantly and I liked it even better. Thanks for a classic recipe!

Minted Mocha Fusion

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
Yummy. This is great because you can control the level of sweetness. I just wanted to make 2 cups and I didn't have instant coffee so I brewed some and added hot cocoa mix, milk and peppermint and heated on the stove. I will definitely make this again.

Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
This was okay as written, it was just a little too bland for us. However, it is a GREAT base recipe. I added a lot of different spices (essence, cajun seasoning, garlic salt, crushed red pepper, to name a few), and that made it delicious. Thank you for the recipe.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I used this recipe for Reuben sandwiches and made homemade Thousand Island dressing and these were better than any restaurant Reuben I've ever had. Excellent and easy!
