Italian Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2004
Great recipe! We had a ton of fresh garden tomatoes, so I cut the amount of spaghetti sauce in half, to 16 ounces, and added 16 ounces of fresh juicy chopped tomatoes. I also added some garlic, paprika, oregano, red pepper and basil. Yum! I couldn't stop eating the sauce when I was stirring it. My husband and 3-year-old liked it too.

Chef John's Turkey Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
This is a superb recipe! I followed it closely other than... didn't have garam masala, and the closest market didn't either, so I used some Rogan Josh seasoning. These were wonderful.

Almond-Topped Fish

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
What a great recipe! I used (lots) of fresh dill, subbed sour cream for the mayo, and topped with lots of sliced almonds that I'd browned. Oh, and omitted the parsley. Whole family (DH & girls ages 8 & 9) agreed it was great. Can't wait to make this again! We used cod.

Marshmallow Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
This is just way too sweet for my family -- even my tweens, who love sweets, didn't finish their portion. We love apple crisp but the marshmallows in this variation almost made our teeth hurt.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
This was okay but not all that -- after the rave reviews, I was expecting to have my socks knocked off. Although my family of four liked it, I will keep looking for an outstanding recipe. For one thing, it was just way too sweet.

Brown Rice Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
The Velveeta negates the healthy choice of making brown rice. And why canned mushrooms instead of fresh? This is truly awful!

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Really good with modifications! Needs more salt, lime, cilantro. Followed others' suggestions and drained the watermelon in a colander. With my changes, it's a 5 star!

Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Wow, this is just terrific! We had bok choy in the garden so tried this on a whim. We subbed Splenda for the sugar and doubled the almonds instead of using chow mein noodles. I do suggest cutting the dressing in half -- there was a ton left in the bottom on the bowl. My mouth is watering just thinking about this salad -- I may need to make it again today!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
This really is fabulous & one of the easiest recipes ever! Couldn't find the candy thermometer so I used the water test and judged by the color too. I followed the recipe exactly other than using pecans for the nuts.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
OMG this is absolutely fabulous! We had this recipe on New Year's Day and everyone, from the nine-year-old on up, absolutely loved it. We made a marmalade and honey mustard-based sauce and it was hard not to lick the plate. We did follow the suggestion about pulsing the coconut in the food processor and it worked very well. I would give this 10 stars if I could!

Mound Bars

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
My kids & I (they're 9 & 10) thought this was way too rich with all of the chocolate. We decided that next time we will use more coconut and just drizzle the chocolate over the top -- maybe use half of the recommended amount. We did follow the recommendation to put the coconut down and then pour the sweetened condensed milk on top, and that worked well.

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
This is, hands down, the best grilled chicken I have ever eaten. So moist, juicy and flavorful! I am picky and very seldom do I give five stars -- and usually I have to modify the recipe to suit myself. Not this one though. Try it, you'll like it!

Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This was just OK. I didn't need to cook it for 22 hours -- I think it would have been soup if I had! It was very, very salty, and I like salt.

Apple Spice Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Added some Vindaloo spice and wow -- this was just tremendous! We're fighting over the leftovers :-)

Hamburger Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
This was extremely bland. I reduced the liquid and added thyme, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, a dash of red wine, garlic, celery salt, carrots, a few squeezes of lemon. I'd give it 4 or 4.5 stars with my changes. Family loved it, even picky 9-year-old.

Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
Really bland. I had to add garlic, dijon mustard, worcester sauce and sour cream. This was edible as written but nothing I'd make again.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This is the best recipe I have found on this site and I've found quite a few. We double the mango and avocado, add more lime juice and garlic too. But oh, is it good! We love it plain and so do our guests. It's also good with chicken and fish! Tonight we're having it on fish tacos. YUM. It's pretty labor intensive but we get our whole family involved and it's kind of fun. You will NOT regret making this. The only problem is to stop yourself from making it all the time!

Basil Tomato Soup

Just okay. Not creamy enough, and tasted like something was missing.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I was really disappointed in this -- after all the great reviews, I was expecting to love it! The sauce added absolutely nothing to a great piece of salmon -- in fact, it detracted. We scraped off as much of it as we could.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I made this for my kids, ages 7 & 8, for breakfast this AM. They loved it! We followed the recipe as written, other than buttering the bread instead of using a spray. This will be a nice breakfast when it is cold!
