Tomato Soup I

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
Easy and delicious recipe that should encourage anyone to stop buying those nasty condensed soups at the grocery store. A few comments: I found 2 cups of cream to be too much and I only ended up adding about half of that; it was plenty creamy. Also, I did not add the sugar. America is so over-sugared and I didn't miss a thing by leaving it out. It was sweet enough just from the tomatos. And do yourself a favor and use real butter - bugs won't even eat margarine ;) Although not necessary, I did buzz it with my stick blender so it wasn't quite so chunky. Someone else had commented about tempering the cream to avoid it curdling and that was an excellent tip.

Russian Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Excellent! Spouse can't take raw onions so I had to sub onion powder, unfortunately. He still raved about it!

Mark's Cabbage and Hamburger Delight

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Really enjoyed this! Very easy and delicious. I did sub beef stock for chicken stock, just because it seemed to make more sense. The smoked paprika is key here - I wouldn't make this with regular paprika. I think the folks that ended up with gummy noodles missed the part where it says to add water to make sure the noodles don't get dry. I added about 2/3 of a cup, which may have been a bit too much but it all worked out. Without knowing anything else, my husband tasted it and said, "Yum! It's healthy Hamburger Helper!" I'll definately make this again. Thanks!

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
This is UH-MAZE-ING. I would give it six stars if I could. I used a "pork roast" and a "ham roast" totalling about 5 pounds. I shut it off after about 8.5 hours and it was perfectly done. I made a gravy out of the drippings and that was a nice added layer of flavor, but honestly I was munching while I shredded, sans gravy, and loving it!

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
Great recipe. I did end up doubling the lard because 2 T got lost in all that flour. And agreed - they are way better than store bought! A word to the wise: make sure you shake off all the extra flour before tossing them in the skillet or the excess flour will burn. I didn't and I set off the smoke alarm!

Asian Barbequed Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
This was suprisingly good. I pan fried rather than grilled and it was very tasty, and so easy. I only had about a pound of steak but marinated in the whole marinade recipe - turned out great. Thanks!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Absolutely delicious! Amy's walnuts must be bigger than mine because I ended up with 40 cookies based on the 24 serving recipe (making the dough balls the size of a walnut). I made mine with BUTTER, others may or may not consider this a major change. I would never use margarine.

Aw-some Coleslaw

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Fantastic! And I recommend making it TWO days ahead - it gets even better. Only real change I made it less sugar (1/4 cup instead of 1/3). Also, if you use half red cabbage it turns the dressing pink. Might be kind of fun for kids :)

Tangy Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Not bad! I made it according to the recipe and it was tasty. Then I added a little worcestershire sauce and some liquid smoke - bam! Yum!

Beef Heart Braised in Wine

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
I'm rating this three stars not because I didn't like it, but rather because I think it has a lot of unfulfilled potential. My only change was to add two cloves of garlic, which I'm glad I did. It just seemed to lack a flavor to really marry with the somewhat strong flavor of the beef (which is not unpleasant, just stronger beefy flavor than I'm used to.) It seemed to require a lot of salt and I'm not sure why. Also, the sauce didn't thicken up as much as I expected it to so it was kind of watery. If I get the opportunity to try this again, I'll add more carrots, more garlic, a splash of worcestershire, lots of salt and probably do the braise in a crock pot instead of on the stove and see how it goes from there. I'll probably also hold back some beef stock to add a thickener to to boost the consistency of the sauce. That said, I recommend trying this recipe as is before making too many changes. You really need to see what flavors will work for your family before just going off of my opinion. Lola, thanks for posting a recipe for an unusual cut!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Super easy and delicious! If it's too thin for you, replace the tomato juice with more tomato sauce. That worked for me. Also, next time I'll saute the onions and celery a bit before adding the rest of the ingredients. I halved the recipe because there's just two of us and it was ready just over an hour. YUM!

Sausage Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Fantastic! Very easy, quick and tasty. I didn't bother to peel my potatoes and it was just fine. I sliced mine in the food processor so it made it twice as fast. Mine only took a little over an hour to bake. Thanks for a great recipe!

Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Excellent recipe, easy and delicious. Also works well with a handful of fresh sage tossed in during the puree process instead of using thyme.
