Rosemary Marinated Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2005
Pretty good, pretty good... Definitely takes longer than 4 minutes per side unless you want your chops still bloody. I had a teetotaler coming over so I omitted the wine and used water as per another reviewer and it came out just fine. My chops were from the arm/shoulder so they were very boney, therefore I'd recommend a different cut. I did not blot the chops dry; not sure what kind of a difference that would have made, but I just didn't have the time! But a great recipe overall.

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2005
This was pretty good... I used steak sandwich bread, cut into cubes, and put it under the broiler for a few minutes. Plus I omitted the water, so I did not have a soggy bread problem that other reviewers did. Though I did think the creamcheese/mayo mixture was a little strong, but doubling the meatballs would cut down on that problem, so I *definitely* recommend doubling the meatballs. It was a bit complicated to put together, and I mostly say that only because we no longer have a dishwasher, so I had a million dishes to clean after it was all done. But it was a good recipe; will add to the rotation, but will space it out to cut down on my dishwashing time ;-)

Blueberry Boy Bait

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2005
This was absolutely delicious! I used a whole 8oz bag of frozen blueberries (defrosted, of course) and added a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar on top and it was just soooooo good! Definitely a crowd-pleaser! :) (p.s. my hubby kept saying that it wasn't cooked all the way, but it's just the egg whites -- they're *supposed* to be kinda gooey) -- UPDATE: 7/24/06 -- I just made this again for my extended family (twice)... the first time I used fresh (dry) blueberries and they didn't sink but I came to the conclusion that I actually liked them to sink. The second time I used fresh (wet) blueberries and it was perfect... er... except for my mistaking the oregano for cinnamon! Yep, that's right, I sprinkled oregano on top. When I realized my mistake (after banging my head on the pantry door a few times) I doubled up on the cinnamon and added a sprinkling of sugar. It was still yummy :)

Ground Beef Mexican Style

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2005
This was overall pretty good; I too added taco seasoning to the ground beef. Omitted the tomatoes since DH doesn't care for them. DH also said to use something other than noodles next time (he's not a noodle fan -- thinks "noodles = Italian" and he's not crazy about Italian; but he doesn't mind noodles in original Hamburger Helper, go figure!), so we'll be trying either Mexican rice or tostadas or something else in place of the noodles. But a great starter recipe that you can customize easily to suit your own tastes, thanks!

Manicotti

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
This was good... I split it up, did half by the recipe and half with browned ground beef (and a sprinkling of italian seasoning while browning). Let's just say it was much easier to fill the manicotti tubes with the ground beef mixture! (I highly recommend a pastry tube if you're not adding any meat; I accidentally split most of the tubes when filling with the meatless mixture) Anyway, a great recipe with or without meat. Thanks!

Biscuit Topped Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
This was excellent! I couldn't find *any* Stouffer's frozen potatoes at my grocery store, so I used two bags (approx 11oz total) of Betty Crockers Potatoes Au Gratin. It was delicious. My only recommendation is to cover it with foil (during the 2nd phase -- when cooking with the biscuits) until the last few minutes because my biscuit tops started browning but the insides were not done yet! Anyway, it was yummy.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2005
Yum! This was great. Almost like lasagna, but a nice change up with the penne pasta and sour cream instead of cottage cheese. As he ate the cold leftovers right out of the casserole dish, my husband said he felt like Tony Soprano, hehe. ;-) My only suggestion: FOLLOW THE LAYERING INSTRUCTIONS! I accidentally ended up with the mozzarella & parmesan cheeses on top, and I think it would have been much better if I'd done it right. It was still good, but the mozzarella wasn't as "cheesy" as it could have been... in fact, it kinda hardened up. So follow those instructions! :)

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2005
This was delicious! A terrific alternative for those of us without a grill. My husband was skeptical, but he even said they were good! I followed other reviewers' suggestions and used 1c ketchup and 1c BBQ sauce. Followed everything else to a T, though I did use boneless ribs. Will definitely be making again!

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2005
This was delicious -- I skipped the salt/pepper and the cheese, opted for the french fried onions instead. What a hit! The amazing thing is that my husband actually ate some of it the next day and the next and he VERY RARELY eats leftovers! And what made it even easier was that I used canned chicken... will definitely be making this again! (p.s. I planned on adding chicken broth to the stuffing, but I forgot and it turned out just fine -- nice and moist) Thanks for the recipe!

Hot Shredded Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2005
I thought this was pretty good, not bad. Definitely easy to make, but the hubby said not to add it to the list of meals which is why I'm only giving it a 3. (side note: I used canned chicken)

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: May 26, 2005
This was absolutely delicious! The only thing I didn't have was the basil. I followed everything else to the T (except I used "hot" italian sausage, not sweet). But it was a delicious dish, smelled great while cooking, and was fast and easy! Couldn't have been more pleased!

Monte Cristo Sandwich - the Real One

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2005
This was FANTASTIC! I thought it was almost exactly like Bennigan's famous Monte Cristo, although the hubby thought there was "something different" (I think it was the brand of ham/turkey that I used). I followed the recipe to a T, deep fried it, and served it up with some powdered sugar and raspberry jam/preserves. Talk about good! My only problem was that by the third sandwich, I was scraping the bottom of the bowl for the batter, so I would probably double the batter mixture next time (luckily, I was only making three sandwiches).

Beef Tips and Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2005
This was very very good! (and so easy to make) Hubby even gave compliments and he doesn't give those too easily! Like the previous reviewer, I too would cover it for a while or stir in the middle because the tops of the beef tips got a bit dark (not really burnt, though). And I personally like a bit more gravy so I might add a tad more water. But on the whole this was yummy! Thanks for the new meal in our rotation!

Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2005
delicious! I don't have a pressure cooker, so I eliminated step one and threw the meat (still frozen) into the slow cooker on low for 10 hours with all the ingredients plus a cup of water. At the end of cooking, the sauce was a little thin so I thickened it up with some cornstarch and voila! Dinner was served...and it was delicious at that! Thanks for the recipe!

Kabob Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
This was fantastic! We marinated the meat for our kabobs with this... changes I made were to use 1/2c veggie oil, a little less than 1/2 c soy sauce, a little less than 1/2c lemon juice, and used Dijon mustard instead of regular. The meat was delicious! I just wish I could have convinced the hubby to let me marinate the veggies too!

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
For my first time frying chicken, this was pretty good. I added extra cajun seasoning, extra black pepper, and garlic powder, and everyone said they liked it, but the hubby said it needed some more seasoning. Oh, I ran out of the cracker mixture before I ran out of meat because I'd chopped up the six breasts to chicken tender size, so if you're going to do that as well I'd recommend upping it by half (i.e. 45 crackers, 3 tbsp flour, etc.). The hubby also said it would be interesting to try Ritz crackers next time, so we'll probably do that.

Lemon-Pepper Salmon II

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
My husband's exact words were... "Baby, this fish is excellent!!" Yay! I too thought it was very good and very simple. Only thing I did differently was to bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
This was pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of bell peppers in particular, but overall I'd give it two thumbs up. I didn't have a can of whole peeled tomatoes so I used a can of stewed tomatoes. I also added some shredded cheese to the top just about 5 minutes before pulling them out of the oven. The hubby said "very good, but less tomato sauce next time" (little did he know it was tomato soup!), but he's not a big fan of anything tomato. Regardless, I'll probably use just one can of tomato soup next time.

Best Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
I don't know if I should really be rating this as I made major changes, but I kept the same basic idea and it was delicious, so here goes... I thought this was really good. The changes I made were to put the round steak (whole, not sliced) into the slowcooker along with the cream of broccoli soup, water, and soy sauce. Cooked it on low for 10hrs and when I got home from work, added the chopped broccoli florets into the pot... let those cook for about 45 minutes, and voila! Dinner was served (and it was yummy too!). I would have followed the recipe, but I was just too lazy and afraid that the steak would take too long to get tender (DH and I are starving by the time I get home from work and an hour to an hour and a half is an eternity on an empty stomach!). But anyway, thanks Linda for the inspiration for a new meal in our rotation!

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2005
DH and I thought this was *okay* ... nothing particularly WOW!-ed us about it. Somewhat similar to the Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast recipe found on here, but we liked that one better.
