Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This is a solid recipe. I combined this with other pork chop recipes and comments to come up with something even better. I didn't have butter crackers, but I had some leftover store-bought breadcrumbs, to which I added flour, cornmeal, garlic powder and Mrs. Dash. Then I browned them in a skillet before transferring them to a baking dish. I continued with the recipe as given, using olive oil instead of butter. Meanwhile, I used the skillet to carmelize some sliced onions and mushrooms.

Satay Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
This dish has lots of potential and some great tastes, but it needs work. The big problem is the peanut sauce on the pita bread. The sauce is too fluid to lay evening on the pita bread. It doesn't soak in. It just runs right off, creating a burned mess on the baking sheet. Also, one slice of Provolone cheese on each pita is not enough. Two slices work better. One bunch of green onions chopped is too much for four mini-pizzas. Half that is all you really need. I would like to try these taste on a regular pizza crust. Also, I would like to combine the peanut sauce with something thicker, although I'm not sure what. That said, the tastes are good.

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Good flavor but arbrio rice is expensive. My first time making risotto and it came out a bit mushy. Also, time estimates are way below actual.

Baked Paprika-Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
I used chicken thighs and it worked pretty good. Not a bad recipe, a nice variation on baked chicken.

Slow-Cooked Tamale Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
I thought after reading other reviews that I had a handle on this thing. But it is now clear to me that the recipe is missing something crucial. I wish I could have figured out what it was. Many have mentioned the heat level, and I found that to be a problem. For me, using a 7-quart slow cooker, the sides burned while the center was mushy. I went ahead and ate it and found the taste to be okay.

Souper Baked Chicken

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
A solid recipe that's fine all but itself. However, I couldn't resist kicking it up a notch. First I browned the chicken in a cast iron skillet, then topped it with 4 potatoes cut into chunks and coated in extra virgin olive oil and a few spices. I added about half a medium onion cut into slices and put the whole thing in the oven. In addition to the soup (I used cream of mushroom) I added a 4 oz. can of sliced mushrooms. It turned out great.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
Too much cornstarch. It made the sauce gummy instead of sticky. It could have been okay, especially if the chicken pieces can be deep fried for a crispier texture. Keep working.

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I really wanted to give this 4-1/2 stars, but there's no button for that. I know real Italian Beef from Chicago and this is pretty close, but not quite there. I made a few modifications and that knocked down my rating. Instead of water, I used a full 2 cups of beef broth. Real Italian Beef is very wet. I also used a rump roast instead of chuck because it was on sale. I don't think there was any difference. I used only half a jar of pepperoncinos and only about half a cup of its juice. I'd rather allow diners to add some heat if they want. Also, I added some garlic and a little oregano and basil. And finally I recommend using hoagie or deli rolls instead of hamburger buns, that would make it more like the real thing. By the way, my favorite place in Chicago is Mr. Beef on Erie. Beats the beter known Al's in my opinion. This is a good version. I look forward to trying it again and adding my favorite extra - an Italian Sausage link.

Spicy Bean with Bacon Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This could have worked well, but all those peppers was way too much for me. One, maybe even a half of one, would have been enough. Needs work.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
This isn't bad, but it's not as good as a real Southern style cornbread recipe that I have and may submit one day. I would recommend cutting the sugar/sweetener to 1/3 of what's in the recipe. That's the biggest problem with most cornbread recipes - too sweet. But for Yankees this would be a good transition to the real thing.

Chop Suey

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
This is a good basic recipe for a good way to deal with leftover meat and vegetables. You can replace the pork with any meat (but not fish) and you can use a lot of different vegetable combinations. Also, I leave out the sugar. Depending on the vegetable combination, you probably don't need it. I serve with both white rice and chow mein noodles. But if you're looking for something that will knock your socks off, this isn't it.

This is a great way to use up left over ground beef. It's quick and easy. While the flavors don't knock my socks off, it's pretty good.

Campbell's® Slow-Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This is better than a lot of slow-cooker chicken & dumplings recipes I've tried, but it still doesn't capture the taste I remember growing up with. This might be a good start, 'though.

Bacon, Potato, and Egg Taco Ole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This didn't turn out quite like how I had pictured, but it did taste pretty good. It didn't knock my socks off. The problem is the recipe doesn't specify thickness of potatoes, which made a big difference in how it turns out. Too thick and they're underdone, too thin and they fall apart before you get the eggs in. I also think it would benefit from a little garlic and finely chopped green pepper. Also, I added some shredded cheddar cheese inside the tortilla. Final verdict: it's okay but not that special.

Aegean Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
The great thing about this is not just that it doesn't use mayo, but that it has an interesting taste. It's not bland but it still goes anywhere the usual chicken salad goes. Thanks, Kelly!
