Great-Grandmother Steinbeck's Johnnycake (Cornbread)

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
Just what I was looking for. Changes made: whole wheat flour, yellow corn meal, and milk soured with lemon juice since I had no buttermilk, cooked in iron skillet. Great texture and good flavor. Thanks.

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
Very good and very easy. I cut up 3 chicken breasts and sauteed them in the oil with the garlic. I also doubled the recipe and used 1 red pepper and 1 orange pepper. The sauce was very tasty but a little thinner than I had hoped. I think next time I will cut back on the water. I had no issues needing salt. In fact, next time I will use low sodium soy sauce since I've noticed my fingers are swelling slightly. I will also grate a little ginger in with the cabbage, add some green onion and maybe some shredded carrots, mushrooms, and water chestnuts. I think broccoli would be too strong a flavor to add.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
Super! Also a great, meatless bean recipe to serve with rice or cornbread if you don't cook them quite so long and don't mash them. We loved the flavor and I loved the healthiness of them! I made no changes. Great as is! Thanks!

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
I thought this was really good but no one else in my family was that excited by it. My kids could take it or leave it. My husband didn't like it at all. The only change I made was to use brown rice since that is all we have in our pantry. Thanks!

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
Very, very good. My only concern was the amount of butter/oil on top of each bowl. Next time I will cut the butter in half and see if it ruins the flavor or if it's fine with less. Next time I will also use a little more sherry and a little less thyme. My husband loves french onion soup in restaurants and he gave this one a thumbs up with 4 stars. Thanks! I'll be making this regularly on cold, sleety days like today.

Anthony's Lime Chicken with Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Nice flavor in my opinion. My kids seemed to like it, also. My husband did not like it much. I didn't bread the chicken for fear of sogginess. I felt that there was too much butter/oil. I think if I make it again I will cut WAY back...especially if I'm not breading anything. I liked the lime flavor. I squeezed the juice of 1 lime in and cooked the other lime in the sauce as written. That part turned out just right. I also liked the pasta preparation prior to putting the sauce on. I will remember that every time I serve pasta...not just with this dish. Added a very good layer of flavor and texture. Thanks for a great start...I will probably play with this and get it closer to my own family's tastes.

Refrigerator Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
I gave this 5 stars because I have made it exactly as written and they were very good. However, in trying to make them a bit healthier I made the following changes with a 3 star result: Used whole wheat flour, used splenda instead of sugar, used applesauce instead of oil. The taste is still good but they did not rise like I wanted. All in all, very good, though. Thanks.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Not bad. I like that it is all fresh ingredients rather than canned soups. My husband can't stand warm tuna so I won't make this on a regular basis but my kids seemed to really enjoy it so I'll keep it in mind for nights that hubby is away. The only change I made was I used whole wheat noodles. Thanks for an easy recipe for a nice, quick, fairly healthy dinner option!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
Good, not great, at our house. Everyone at it but no one loved it. May make it again just for a change of pace. However, this review is based on the following changes: used cream of mushroom and brown gravy packet. So the 3 star rating is on my version. If I make again I will try as written since it gets so many great reviews. Thanks.

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
I made this for about 75 women at a weekend conference and had NO complaints. Tons of compliments. Served with a side of Asian stir-fried vegetables. Excellent lunch. Thanks.

Simple Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
Very good. So good my daughter is taking leftovers in her thermos today. That doesn't happen often! Modifications made were only that I used 1 lb ground turkey rather than 2 lb ground beef. I did not add the can of green chilis. I added 1 can of beans with jalapenos. Thanks!

Deer Jerky

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
Excellent and simple! Modifications: I was out of onion salt so I used minced onion instead and skipped the additional salt since there is so much in the sauce anyway. Also, used a dehydrator rather than the oven. Very, very good flavor. Better than any I've purchased anywhere. My son is THRILLED with how we jerkied his first deer! Thanks!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
Excellent. Modifications I made were as follows: I did not add the 1/2 c water to the sauce. I substituted ground turkey for the ground beef. I cut the salt in half. I used no boil lasagna noodles. I was very pleased with the results. Not watery at all and very tasty. I would consider it very simple to make, also, since all I had to serve with it was a salad and french bread. Not so quick but certainly easy! Thanks!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
Very good. I made the following modifications. Used turkey stock from Christmas turkey instead of boiling chicken in bouillon. Reduced amount of chicken to 4 breasts, diced, and sauteed in herbs. Replaced one of the cans of chili beans with a can of black beans. Used frozen rather than canned corn. Cooked it in my slow cooker all day long. It smelled fabulous and everyone who had some seemed to like it. Thanks!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
My entire family loved this! The only mistake I made...and I'm not going to dock a rating for my error...I used too much sausage by incorrectly reading the recipe. Flavors were outstanding and if I hadn't fouled up I know it wouldn't have been greasy but divine. Can't wait to make it again....correctly!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
I thought this was extremely sweet but was a nice change up for a bring-a-snack party. It seemed to get lots of compliments but I brought a LOT home. That combined with my lack of "Wow" over it puts it in the 3 star category for me. I will keep the recipe and make again, for sure. Thanks for sharing it with us.
