Awesome Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
I thought that this was a good but not great recipe. It's good in an ordinary way. No big surprises. The one thing we didn't care for was the subtile sweet taste it took on due to so many carrots. I might make this again but would cut the carrots and celery amounts by half and would use all chicken broth rather than water.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
We've just returned from Kauai and I wanted to try to recreate some of the Luau experience for my family. This recipe is exactly like the pork served at the Luau. My roast was bigger (10 lbs.) so I cooked it on High for 8 hours and it was perfect, moist and falling apart. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
EEEEE-YUM!! I didn't put in the full amount of pepper and I DID double the sauce. Such a wonderful, yummy recipe! This goes into my "favorites" book! Thanks skini.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
Very good. I split the difference with the sugar so I used a total of 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons. Just right. I also added some crumbled Gorgonzola cheese and it was a good contrast with the sweet dressing but it is great without the cheese too. Thanks for this recipe.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
Oh gosh, I really wanted to give this easy to prepare dish 5 stars but I just can't. A baked pasta dish (IMO) MUST NOT have too much sauce in order for it to come out really good. Too much sauce = liquid and too much liquid makes the pasta soggy and drowns it with the sauce flavor. I like my baked pasta to have that kind of chewy texture that comes from being slightly dried, otherwise you may as well make the good ol' wet spaghetti we all love. This dish came out something more like you'd expect from Hamburger Helper or canned Beefaroni not that there's anything wrong with that, (as Seinfeld would say ;)) but that's not what I want when I'm looking for "baked" pasta. If I were to try this again, at the very least I would reduce the sauce to 1 jar and bake it in a bigger pan so it could dry better but I'll probably keep exploring some of the other recipes instead.

Wiener Schnitzel

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
Soooo good! I used Panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs) for a more crispy coating and it was wonderful. I also followed other's advice by squeezing lemon juice over the top before serving. Wow, that is just the thing that really sets the recipe apart from some similar American foods! Forget the gravy on this one and pass around the LEMON! Thanks for this tasty recipe.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
Wonderful!- everyone agreed. I used Monterey Jack cheese instead and added a little whole milk to make them a little smoother but these were so good and a nice change of pace. Thanks for this great recipe.

Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
Let's face it, today's so-called "Muffins" are merely cupcakes without frosting! I have to agree with "Steen71688", below. These are what are truly considered to be "Muffins"! I agree that the recipe is a bit bland but sometimes that's exactly what I'm looking for rather than a dessert. I tried adding 1/2 t. maple flavored extract but I can't really taste it. Next time I may try adding cinnamon.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
Could this BE any easier? YES! Prepare it the day before the feast AND line your pot with a cooking bag! To do this, add all ingredients (in a bowl - not the pot) as directed EXCEPT for the eggs! Cover and chill the mixture until completely cold in the fridge and THEN add the eggs and mix. Spoon the mixture into the lined crock pot. Cover and refrigerate until morning. The next morning put the crock pot on Low heat and let cook all day. The only problem was that personally we found the stuffing too wet. Next time I will reduce the amount of broth to 3 cups. Before serving, I will add more if I feel it's too dry.

Summer Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
I never would have thought that it would be possible for a salad to have this much flavor without a heavy dressing! Ok, so I have not been able to find the yellow tomatoes but that's no problem. Just add extra red. I find that I'm still slightly nervous about the garlic getting distributed evenly so I still juice a few of the tomatoes into a little bowl and stir the garlic into that. Then pour over all. What a pleasure to find a wonderful, wonderful salad that the whole family loves and have it be fat free too! I've had this recipe for about 2 weeks and we've already had it 4 times. Thank you so much for sharing this!

Shrimp Etoufee III

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2007
As far as Etouffee goes, this is probably a good recipe but we thought the flavor of this dish was just ok. I will most likely go ahead and make a Jambalya next time so that the Cajun seasonings can perk it up a bit.

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
I came looking for a healthy flax muffin that would hopefully taste good too. This one is it. It makes a big batch and that's what I wanted so that I can freeze them to have on hand. I used my sweetened soy milk in place of milk and it worked great. I may cut back slightly on the salt next time. I baked 12 of them in my jumbo size silicone baking cups (sprayed with cooking spray) and put a 1/3 cup (measure rounded with batter) into each cup and baked them for 30 minutes. They are a perfect size, not too big or small.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
No need for me to order this in the restaurant anymore! Wonderful! I found that a little goes a long way so I'm careful not to drench the vegetables. I add to it chopped cucumber, raw zucchini, tomato, onion, Kalamata olives and Feta. Heaven in a bowl!

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
From 2 Stars to 4. I thought this soup was a little bland but with a couple of minor changes, it jumped to a 4 star recipe. I used canned chicken broth in place of water (omitting the called-for chicken bouillon). I also wanted a more savory flavor so I added 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning. I'll be making this again.

Very good. Moist and not too sweet. I added a jar of chopped (and rinsed) Green Maraschino Cherries to make it even more festive looking. Beautiful!

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
Very good! I only needed 2 eggs, 3 tablespoons butter, pulled off the foil and broiled the last 10 minutes to slightly crisp. Wonderful! A new family favorite. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Paella

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I used wing drummettes rather than chicken breast. I browned them before the other ingredients, removed them and added them back when the stock and rice were added so they could finish cooking. Also added frozen peas. When ready to serve I squeezed lemon juice over all. Very good!
