Sundried Tomato Tapenade

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
Made as directed except for substituting fresh basil. The taste was too sweet for me so I added a can of chopped black olives. My husband and family loved it as prepared, but next time I will add kalmata olives.

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
I made this exactly as written but will change it up the next time I make it, which will be soon. It had a great flavor but was too sweet for me. I had never used oyster sauce before & discovered (too late) that the second ingredient listed after oyster extract, is sugar. I will eliminate the white sugar, substitute a dry white wine (less sweet than sherry), add toasted sesame seeds & more cornstarch as my sauce was too soupy.

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
These were good, but even with the sauce I made for dipping, it was hard to eat very many. I won't try them again.

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I used fresh lime juice because that is what I had on hand. I also used 1/2 spicy brown mustard & 1/2 Dijon mustard, based on other reviews that mentioned Dijon. The smoke flavoring smell was overpowering to me as the chicken was marinading and I was worried about how it would taste, but was happily surprised to find it delicious after cooking on the grill. Glad I tried this recipe.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
This is a great recipe. I made a few changes to accommodate my limited pantry selection. I used red wine vinegar instead of white, substituted boysenberry jam and used fresh minced sage. Delicious!

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
Great recipe! I changed up the veggies based on what I had on hand, added more sesame oil and soy sauce and used asian noodles. I would definitely make this again.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Made this for a family dinner and it got rave reviews. I doubled the recipe, left out the corn and hot pepper sauce. It came out a little too hot for our tastes so I added three times the beans to counteract. I will certainly make this again but I will cut back a bit on the smoke flavoring. Thanks for sharing!

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I used this recipe as a sauce base for chicken, not tofu and it was delicious. I made many substitutions because of my limited pantry: I used chile in oil instead of chile paste, I substituted broccoli for mushrooms, ground ginger for fresh and I upped the curry powder by another teaspoon. Next time I will definitely use fresh ginger for added zip. This is a keeper - thanks for sharing!

Raspberry Balsamic Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Doubled this recipe and it is delish! The only change I made was to add dried onion flakes. Goodbye store bought dressings!

Bloody Mary Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Delicious! The only changes I made were to add a dash of lime juice, add hotshot pepper and double the horseradish. For added flavor - definitely let the mix set for a few hours before drinking.

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Fantastic! Instead of ground beef I used leftover Shrimp from this recipe "Chipolte Shrimp Tacos" found on this site. I omitted bell pepper but added chopped black olives. I went a little heavier on the cheese & cumin. Would absolutely make again.

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I loved this recipe! I got a little carried away with the chilis and added 4.5 instead of 3 and boy was it hot. I only used half the bacon to reduce fat but found this very tasty!

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
I did follow the recipe as written and while I thought it was good, I didn’t think it was spectacular. Perhaps chunky peanut butter would have made it better, but after a bite or two it lost it’s appeal. I made it for adults but I have the feeling kids would really love it!

Tortellini, Steak, and Caesar

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Yummy! I substituted shrimp for the steak, used Ken’s light Caesar dressing, and fresh grated parmesan. I let the tortellini chill in the refrigerator in some dressing. This was a delicious summer salad!

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I made this for a family dinner and they ate it up in no time! Here are the changes I made: I used red wine vinegar and upped the oil to almost ¼ cup. Next time I make this I’ll scale back on the oil, but I can’t imagine 2 tablespoons being enough. I added a bit of sesame oil too. I only had Blue Diamond Smokehouse almonds so I just chopped about 1/3 cup of those up instead. Delicious! I mixed the sesame seeds in when adding the dressing, but held off on adding the ramen and almonds until just prior to serving. They couldn’t get enough!

Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Oh so good! I mixed the leftover sauce with the pasta and it was even better the next day! Here are the changes I made: used more onion, closer to 1 cup instead of ½. I substituted fresh basil and used about 4 times the required amount. I used a can of inexpensive Hunts spaghetti sauce and froze the rest so it’ll be handy the next time I make this recipe! I used a pre-packaged Farmer John ham steak which made for plenty of meat and a good smoky flavor. I wanted larger mushroom chunks so I cut each one into thirds. Finally, I used small shells instead of linguine. The recipe made plenty and two of us hardly put a dent into the sauce. My only problem is that it took forever for the sauce to cook down. We finally ended up eating it before it had reduced to 2/3. Even though the sauce was a bit thin, it was delicious and I plan to make it again. The only thing I’ll do different is add more red pepper flakes since I like it spicier!

Poppy Seed Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2006
This is an excellent dish and so easy to make. In my opinion, one teaspoon of poppy seeds hardly qualifies that ingredient to make it in the dish's title... so I used about 4 tablespoons! Simply wonderful.

Baked Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
Excellent! I loved how easy it was to make! I used boneless/skinless chicken breast tenders and they came out surprisingly moist. I used deli mustard because that is all I had, but the flavor came out great! My teenager wasn’t hungry the following night until she heard we had left over Dijon chicken! Will defiantly make this again.

Baked Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
I’ve never had anything like this but was looking for something to go with chili beans. I’m not sure what the consistency was supposed to be, but the flavor was delicious! Mine came out mushy in the middle, so I’m not sure if I cooked it long enough.

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2006
Exceptional! My husband and I enjoyed this soup so much I can’t wait to make it again. As other raters suggested, I added white beans, parsley, Italian spices and garlic powder. Instead of potatoes, I used mushrooms, which added to the flavor, but probably made the soup thinner than it would have been otherwise. Yummy!
