Roast Beef and Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Very easy. Many complained about the salt, so I bought one regular can of soup & one 25% reduced sodium can. Though, I never had any salt problems, it was perfect & I don't think it mattered what cans I bought. However, I did make modifications, an extra cup of beef broth for more gravy & I added pearl onions, carrots, 3 stalks of celery & some sliced mushrooms about 45 minutes before it was done. It only took 6 hours to cook & I sprinkled a little parsley on top & served with mashed potatoes.

Best Ever Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
My husband always buys the canned mix, but we will no longer! Very good & super easy. I only had to modify the recipe slightly because I didn't have time to go to the store & that was that I didn't have a pepper, so it was omitted & I used a 'hearty' tomato soup, which had some extra spices, not much though. Although, the pepper would have only made it better!

Phyllo Turnovers with Shrimp and Ricotta Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
It was okay, not bad. At first I wasn't sure about the folding methods, then I realized to fold the dough exactly like you would a 'paper football'. If you played that in school. Also, work semi-quickly to get all of the turnovers folded before the dough dries out. I was distracted for the last couple & they didn't turn out so well. You can try damp paper towels to help, but I only had some success with that. Overall, the recipe was very easy to make, the taste was good, but not exciting. It seemed to be missing some flavour, or something. Everyone said they would eat them again, but not their favourites. It did open the door to modifying the recipe with other ingredients or additions though!!!
