Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
My mom made this when I came to visit last week. She had made this for their friends who came to visit & told me how they raved and raved about how good it was, and they were right!! It tastes very similar to KFC or Lee's. She said it was so easy to make and not to be alarmed when you're done mixing it up and it seems too dry. Apparently cabbage releases water and that's why you must let it chill for 2 hours, or overnight as she does. Very good recipe. I look forward to making it myself to take to the next function I'm invited to!

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
It will never taste 100% like the real deal, but this is very close. Skyline is my all-time favorite restaurant. I would suggest using the finely shredded cheese to make it a bit more authentic, and serve the cheese at room temp. So freakin' yummy!!

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
OMG! So good and easy, plus all the ingredients (minus chicken) are things I always have on hand anyway. I used chicken breasts and flattened them out. I diluted the mayo just a slight bit, as others have done. I baked the breasts at 400 for 40 minutes and they were perfect. My husband and I were both really impressed with this recipe. And it's hard to impress him!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2014
Great pizza sauce. I didn't have marjoram, but it was still good. I doubled the recipe, but may not quite double the parmesan cheese next time, and will therefore decrease water a bit too. Can't go wrong with this recipe.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
What a simple and tasty way to make fish. I omitted the celery salt since I didn't have any, and added Old Bay to each side as others have done. Next time I might add some bread crumbs or panko for a little crunch. But, it's wonderful as it is!

Martha's Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
What a wonderful recipe! When I make vegetable soup it usually seems a little bland, but this was not the case tonight. Very flavorful. I doubled the recipe, added a can of kidney beans, and cooked the beef with a whole yellow onion and 3 cloves of garlic. I also subbed beef broth for the water. So easy to make, was inexpensive, and healthy. Will surely make this often all winter long.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Wow. I get so excited when a 5-star recipe actually lives up to what I expect! This was so freakin' good. I took tips from the top two "Most Helpful" reviews, such as using the Pillsbury ready made crusts, baking at 375 for 55 minutes, adding some garlic powder and garlic salt, and I omited the peas and subbed diced potatoes. Also, made about 1.5x the amount of gravy filling and mixed with chicken and veggies before putting into my crust. I love this recipe and will make it again and again.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
Not too bad for what it is, which is a basic recipe. I have gestational diabetes and was looking for a low-carb recipe and this one fit the bill. I need to eat an ounce of meat with my snacks throughout the day, so I just grab a cold meatball outta the fridge. I added some garlic powder, salt and parmesean cheese and baked them for a total of 25 minutes. Were pretty good and my 1-1/2 year old loved them too. I'll surely make these again....at least until the baby comes :-) Edit: I made these again tonight with extra-lean ground beef, used crushed saltines instead of bread crumbs and added some garlic powder, parsley, dried onions, basil and some parmesan cheese. Poured some marina over top and baked a bit longer. YUMMM! My picky daughter even liked these.

Dirt Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
I've never made this but have had it over the years, and it was so easy to make and turned out great. I put it in a flower pot with a fake flower and little garden trowel and everyone thought I was so "crafty"..HA! It went over really well. I will surely make this again. I even used sugar-free french vanilla pudding and whipped topping, and it tasted just as good as the real thing. Can't wait to make this for a summer party using the vanilla sandwich cookies so it looks like sand and I can put it in a pail with a shovel and shells :-)

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
I've never made bruschetta before and this recipe was fairly easy and very good. As other reviewers suggested, I brushed the oil on the bread and broiled for a couple minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. I also used slices of mozzarella instead of shredded so it wouldn't fall off the bread. Next time to save much time I will buy a can of diced tomoatoes instead of chopping all those. Great recipe!

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This recipe is wonderful! I cut the recipe in half and it still made a lot. I followed the recipe for the most part. Only thing I did was used 3/4 C. flour instead of 1 C., tossed the apples in sugar, and baked it for 1 hour. I used 6 Cortland apples, so that was probably a little more than the 4 C. called for....remember I made a half recipe. Very good. I will make this again and again. Served with Walmart's "Homemade Vanilla" ice cream. YUM!

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
I've been making salmon patties for years, and thought I'd try a new recipe. This recipe is basically how I make mine, but I really liked the addition of dry mustard. It gave the flavor a bit more "oomph". I, too, usually use fresh parsley, but didn't have any on hand so I used dry. I think I like it even better since they don't taste so "green". I squeezed a slice of lemon over top when they were done. Super! Thanks for the great recipe. Oh, no need to reserve the liquid. They'll never be cohesive if you do.

Savory Tater Tot Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
Not a bad recipe with some additional ingredients. Tater tot casserole is what it is. It's never going to fabulous! But, this recipe is pretty good. This recipe wouldn't have been as good had I not added some minced garlic, 1/2 packet onion soup mix, a splash of worcestershire, a sprinkling of onion powder, and a handful of shredded cheddar. I cooked my meat with the onion like others did then baked it for 50 minutes. Note that the recipe calls for a 19 ounce can of soup. I'm sure many people overlooked that and bought the usual 10 ounce can like I did. Luckily I had a can of cream of mushroom soup on hand to add. All in all, it was a nice way to get my toddler her beloved tater tots along with some veggies and meat.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Giving this 5 stars for ease and good flavor! I'm on a strict, healthy diet per doctor's orders, so I didn't use the crescent rolls (although I'm sure it would be Delicious!!) and I used Fat-Free Cream Cheese. Instead, I spread the mixture and veggies on whole wheat tortillas. Didn't refrigerate anything, just spread it on and ate it. Was VERY good!! Topped with shredded carrots, chopped green peppers, green onions and avocado slices. Thanks for the great recipe and my new-found way of adding veggies to my diet :))

Kidney Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Very good and simple to make. I always thought bean salad looked awful at family gatherings, but now that I'm pregnant I find it quite tasty!! And to keep calories down I used Hellmans Light, because it is the Best :)

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
5 Stars for Easy & Tasty! I used 3 cans of BB, added some garlic, 2x the cumin, and 1/2 C. frozen corn. Was really good. If you're going to add in a bunch of other ingredients (like chicken, tomatoes, corn, and other stuff) and have more time, you should try the "Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup" from this site. I think I like it just a hair better, but you really can't beat this for how quick and easy it is. I made it and ate it in peace, all while my kids napped :-) Great recipe. Don't eat if you have big plans the following day though, like traveling, errands, client meetings, etc....if you catch my drift!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
I've never eaten egg salad sandwiches before, so I don't have anything to compare this to, but I thought it was very good. It's super easy and diet friendly if made with low-fat mayo. I only made 1 serving for myself, which made 2 sandwiches. Glad to have a new lunchtime recipe to add to the rotation.

Simple Chicken Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
These seriously are so quick and easy to make. Plus my husband and 1 & 2 year old like these. Excellent as-is, or is also a great recipe to build on. I use McCormicks Chicken taco seasoning. It's a MUST. Not nearly as good with regular taco seasoning meant for ground beef. And the Pico de Gallo is simple and delicious. I actually make it often and also use it to dip tortilla chips in.

Stir-Fried Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Really nice flavor. Used flour in place of cornstarch, and broth instead of water. Was WAY better than using a bottle of stir-fry sauce like I usually do.
