Watermelon Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
Refreshing on a summer day. I read the reviews and decided to cut down the sugar and skip making the syrup. I just pureed the watermelon and mixed it with everything else, then chilled.

Egg and Hash Brown Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This was truly a desperation dinner for me, as I realized I did not have 2 of the 6 ingredients! I subbed cottage cheese and a little water for the milk, and dried minced onion for the green onion. It still turned out great! I read the reviews ahead of time and added salt and pepper. I also didn't have a 7x11 pan so I used a 9x13 and baked for about 35 minutes. Highly recommended.

Vegetable Wild Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
This is really good! I changed it up a little because I wanted to use my rice cooker. I cooked the veggies (plus a carrot) in a pan on the stove, then combined them with the rice (half wild, half brown), spices (doubled), and chicken broth in the rice cooker and let it go. I only used 3 1/2 C chicken broth and no water to adjust for my rice cooker. Turned out great!

Tartar Sauce IV

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
Pretty good. I made it as directed (but cut it down) and thought it could use a little something else. I added a little Dijon mustard and a dash of Tabasco and they really made it delicious!

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
I made this following the original ingredient list, plus all the optionals, except I cut the salt in half per other reviews. It was amazing! Very versatile - would go with brunch, lunch, or dinner. I had to bake at 400 F due to another item in the oven but it was still done in about 15 minutes. Hubby and I actually scraped the pan clean, and he asked if I could figure out a way to bottle the sauce - only half-jokingly! It'll be a good addition to the rotation when asparagus is in season.

Salmon Cakes I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
Yum yum! I do recommend adding seasoning to your liking. One thing I think most people are missing is that the recipe calls for a very large can of salmon (14.75 oz). The usual size is only 5 oz. If you use the large size can then 5 potatoes is probably fine. I used 2 potatoes and 2 5 oz. cans of salmon. That ratio was pretty good. I added parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne. I also added about 1 T milk to help the potatoes stick together, and I used crushed gold fish crackers on the outside instead of flour. I only used 3-4 T oil to fry them. Perfection.

Creamy Tomato-Basil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
Add some goldfish crackers on top and this is pretty close to the perfect tomato soup! It's a versatile recipe and after making it several times here's the slightly healthier version I settled on: use 2T olive oil and skip the butter, use milk instead of cream, add a bit of celery, add red pepper flakes and sherry, and cut the chicken broth in half. I also skip the peeling and straining steps, and replace half of the tomatoes with a quart of home-canned tomatoes when I have them on hand. Also good with cheesy toast or Yummy Garlic Croutons from this site.

Steven's Baked Nachos

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I couldn't find a recipe quite like what I was looking for, so I modified this one. I cooked 1 lb of ground beef with taco seasoning, then layered it in a 9x13 pan with tortilla chips, cheese, pinto beans, tomato, green onion, and sliced jalapenos and baked it all as directed. I skipped the sour cream and served salsa and guac on the side. Perfection! I will hang on to this for gatherings and the occasional tv night dinner.

Chinese Sesame Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
Pretty good, but very salty. Next time I would skip the extra salt and use low-sodium soy sauce. Also, 1 lb of pasta is way too much. I'd recommend more like 1/2 lb.

Famous Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
The flavor is just like that famous Japanese restaurant, Benihana! The only thing that's a little off is the texture. It's a little thin so next time I'd leave out the water and maybe cut down the oil to 1/4 C. Otherwise it's perfect. I look forward to trying this again tomorrow after the flavors have blended in the fridge.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
I had everything ready except the dressing, and that's when I realized I only had about 1/4 C of mayo left. Oops! I went with it and decreased the sugar and vinegar a bit, and it still turned out great. Very light and quite a bit healthier than the original. Next time I might use about 1/2 C mayo for a richer flavor that is still a little healthier than the original recipe. Like others, I used sunflower seeds and skipped the bacon due to personal preference. I also used plain white vinegar. I think shredded carrots would be good in here too.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Comfort food all the way! I followed the recipe exactly and it was creamy and delicious. I did have to bake it about 15 minutes longer. I agree with other reviewers that it was a touch bland, so next time I will add a little dry mustard, nutmeg, and cayenne to the sauce (these are standard additions to my mac n cheese sauce). I might also cut the onions into smaller pieces, and I will definitely use a bigger pan - the size stated was just barely big enough. I might try a 9 x 13 pan, and uncover during the last 15 minutes to get the top browned a little. These are minor tweaks though and this recipe is a great place to start.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
The taste of these can't be beat but they were a little thick and didn't cook all the way through in the middle. We added a bit of water to thin out the batter and the rest were perfect. Next time we make these we'll add 1/4 to 1/2 C water.

Mexican Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Just okay in my book. I was cleaning out the pantry so tossed in some corn and cilantro, and used a can of Rotel tomatoes in place of the tomato and jalapeno. Despite the additions it was still missing something. I cooked it in my rice cooker - just threw in everything except the cheese and let it go. Couldn't be simpler, I'll give it that.

Frijoles a la Charra

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I thought the broth was the best thing about this – it is delicious! The beans themselves never got soft enough for my liking, although they are edible. If you are looking for plain refried beans this is not it – the flavor will be too strong (try Refried Beans without the Refry on this site). I have a few tips based on my experience. First, be sure to soak your beans overnight even though the recipe doesn’t say so, otherwise they will never get soft. Cooking time/setting – Cooking time and high/low setting will probably need to be adjusted to your crockpot. The beans need to be at a simmer/low boil for several hours to get soft. My beans weren’t simmering on low so I had to turn up the heat and still cooked for 6+ hours. Also, your beans will cook faster if you use hot water at the beginning, and if your beer is not cold when you add it. Amount of dried beans – I found that 1 lb of dry beans is equal to roughly 2.5 cups. Beer - if you don’t like beer to start out with then just skip it in this recipe. If you are using beer, only use one that you like the taste of.

Pickled Grilled Red Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
Pickled onions never sounded good to me until I had them on a sandwich at a local restaurant. Now I'm hooked! I have been using these to perk up my veggie sandwiches and they are great. I love the new twist. The temp is below zero here in Minnesota and there was no way I was going to get out the grill, so I just simmered the onions in the vinegar solution on the stove until they were soft (about 5-10 min). I cut down the sugar and salt a bit due to personal preference, and added a bit of pickling spice.

Gourmet Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
I haven't tried the microwave technique yet so my rating is just for the olive oil/salt topping. It was a tasty, healthy alternative to butter. I'll use this regularly from now on.

Wild River Bloody Mary Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Pretty good basic recipe but even better with horseradish and lime. I didn't have celery salt so used garlic salt plus a little celery seed. I also doubled the Tabasco. And of course don't forget the olives and celery! I like to make this with low-sodium tomato juice and have it as a healthy virgin drink.

Red Pepper and Corn Relish

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
I only made this to clear out some leftovers but I will hang on to the recipe! It was very good. I cut down the recipe so I could just use one bag of corn (which is about 2C). I also had to make a few subs based on what I had on hand - 1/2 t sugar instead of the syrup, and shallots instead of the green onions. I used jarred peppadew peppers since that's what I had on hand. They have a kick and added a great flavor. I cut the hot pepper sauce (Tabasco) down a little since I was using spicy peppers. I also cut the oil in half since it seemed like too much. Despite all the changes it turned out great.

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
These are awesome, and they make the house smell awesome too! Very hearty and flavorful. I was skeptical about the chili powder but threw it in anyway and I'm glad I did. I didn't have an onion on hand so I subbed 3T dried minced onion, but otherwise I follow the ingredient list exactly. As others have done, I soaked the beans in plain water overnight, then discarded the water and started fresh when I began cooking. I cooked for about 3 hours and it was plenty tasty and thick at that point. I was wondering whether to cover the pot but decided not to - and I think that's key to getting them to thicken up.
