Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Kielbasa

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
Made this for a 4th of July party--had a few little pieces left. Lots of some of the other appies left tho, so I think this was a hit. Very easy, just put it in the crock pot and let it go. Didn't need to change a thing. Thanks! Will definitely use again.

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
Made this tonight, found it to be just ok. It was easy to prepare, with ingredients I generally have on hand. It lacked something for me....I did add some broccoli which went pretty well....it wasn't very saucy, maybe the canned tomato would help with that. My husband said it was a nice light dinner....I might try again with some other reviewers suggestions. I didn't have parsley, so I used some fresh basil and rosemary which added a nice flavor, and also topped with more feta. It'll get eaten!

Grilled Soy-Sesame Asparagus

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
These were just ok for me....the sesame oil seemed to take over and make them seem a little bitter. I love asparagus on the grill, and don't even mind that the tips get a little crispy. People ate them for sure, but we've had better luck I think with olive oil with salt and pepper and a little splash of lemon juice. Timing suggestion was right on tho....Thanks!

Kabobs

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
We made these kabobs for Memorial Day this week. As the recipe was stated, I'm sure it would be great, which is why I'm giving it a 4 star rating. After reading the many reviews, I decided to make a few adjustments that sounded good to me also, like the addition of shrimp, a few different vegies, and pineapple. Had the meat marinating for about 6 hours, the vegies only about 3, but made the terrible mistake of putting the fresh pineapple in with the meat. DO NOT DO THIS. There was some sort of a reaction, and it must have started 'cooking' the meat while it marinated....the meat was terrible, we had to literally throw it out. It was mushy and mealy, changed the texture entirely. The pineapple and vegies, however, were delicious, and gone in a flash. Luckily we had hotdogs and hamburgers to have with them.....Operator error on this one, will definitely try this again, with no pineapple in the bag while marinating!! Do try it!

Tarragon Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
Made this last night, and was a little dissappointed. Followed others suggestions and used Fat Free Half and Half, cut back a little on the pepper and tarragon--it was bland. Maybe I should have left the spices as stated in the recipe? I did add mushrooms, which was a plus...but still not the rich alfredo-like taste I had maybe expected from reading some reviews. I had a crowd to feed, and there was WAY too much left over. Have to admit, it was easy to prepare, but don't think I'm going to be trying again. Thanks tho!

Best Beef Dip Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
Made this last night for a bunch of hungry guys--they loved it! I also followed others advice and used lower sodium soy, and substituted some of the water with lower sodium beef broth and a can of french onion broth. I left it on low for 9 hours and it was extremely tender. I also shredded it and put it on rolls in the oven with some cheese on top--there was none left! The juice will find it's way in some soup or something, but it was still pretty salty even with the changes I made. Would definitely make again, it was very easy, and tasty. Thanks!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
Made this for company and they couldn't get enough! I also used some fresh shrimp, which turned out great as well. Found it extremely easy to prepare. Wish I had made more-there wasn't any left overs! The fish was very moist and tender, but it did take a little longer to cook than the recipe stated. Thanks for this one, it's a new favorite of ours!

A Jerky Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
This chicken had a wonderful flavor, when your mouth stopped burning! I must have gotten a hold of a seriously hot habanero--holy cow! Only the strong were able to put the sauce over rice, as it was I was glad I only marinated the chicken for an hour. I would totally try this again with a wimpier pepper cause the flavors were great. Very simple to make, took no time at all to prepare. Thanks for all of the suggestions, and I'll certainly try it again.

Herbed White Bean Spread on Garlic Toasted Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2004
I don't know what I did wrong, but this was just so-so. I found it to be dry, and ended up putting some tomato on top for some flavor and color. Not a hit with my guests, would maybe try a variation next time--maybe adding some tomato or basil, plus I didn't have a food processor, it might have helped.

Our family loved this recipe! Each time we make it, people ask for the recipe. It's suprisingly easy, and is now one of our favorites.
