Seven Ingredient Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2015
Three hours is unnecessarily long for a simple sauce like this. It will be fine in 30-45 minutes. If you cook meat in the sauce, a longer time is justified.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
The best trick with a soup like this is to puree a couple of cups of the soup at the end to make a thicker mixture that still has plenty of whole beans.

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
Simmering pea soup "about one hour" is a laugh. It's done when it's done, and that depends on many factors. Mine is going on two and a half hours and the peas are not yet soft. Just the way it works.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2014
Great recipe. Even easier and tastier if you bake the sweet potatoes at 400 degrees until they are soft. Let them cool, and the skins come right off. Substituted maple syrup for sugar in the potatoes, and substituted 2 tsps. bourbon for the vanilla. Much better.

Sherry Braised Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2014
Really good. Takes longer to reduce the sauce than stated here. You need to put some sort of vegetable (like carrots) in it at the end, or on the side. Served it over polenta.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
Incredibly easy and good. I doubled and made as a loaf and in an 8" round pan. Like so many. I reduced the salt to 1 tsp., the baking powder to 3 tsp., added 1 cup of shredded cheese, and 1 tbl. of honey. I'm sure if you made it as written, it would be great as well

Blueberry Strata

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
This is a 5-star with changes noted by others. Definitely use only one package of cream cheese, add 1 tsp. of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. of salt, and next time I will add some lemon zest. I just topped with (always real) maple syrup, as I am not a big blueberry syrup fan. Just great; everyone who ate it was in love with it. Oh, I took it out of the fridge 2 hours before baking, and it still required one hour 15 minutes to bake properly.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2014
Could not have been easier. Shortening has its uses, but butter is the best here. As someone else suggested, I made 6 large biscuits (for strawberry shortcake), they took 20 minutes to cook that way. Highly recommended.

Dinah's Baked Scallops

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
Perfect. For all the people who are boo-hooing about the butter, that's exactly how much they put in at a restaurant. That's why things taste so good there. You can put half on top, and serve the rest on the side. Definitely add some cayenne or a little hot sauce to the crumbs. Scallops should be seasoned with salt and pepper before rolling in crumbs. In fact, it's a lot easier to put the scallops (naked) in a baking dish, and put the crumb topping over. Also, a minute under the broiler makes it look nicer.

Spicy Chile Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
Came out great. Some suggestions: you can easily forego the white sauce prep by substituting Mexican crema from the grocery store. Definitely "blister" the tortillas (fry on both sides in a few drops of oil) until a little browned and puffed. The flavor and texture of the finished dish will be 100% better. I added 3 tbls. Parmesan cheese to the white sauce. Also make certain to taste the white sauce to ensure that it has enough salt and black pepper. I served with beans and rice.

My Favorite Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
Liquid Smoke, where have you been all my life? I made 5 times the normal amount of this recipe, so it also answered the age-old question of what to do with my honking container of Costco dried onions. Really good as is. I added sauteed onion and bell pepper, so there was something fresh in it. Also some chili powder. I'm sure that it would be just great without any alterations.

Tex-Mex Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
This was really good. I had a whole pork tenderloin left over. I made the sauce in a skillet. Added some green bell pepper, cooked it with a cover for about an hour. Added some garlic as well. Put the pork in at the end just to heat. Turned out great.

Erin's Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
This was easy and great. Use the quantities exactly as is in the recipe, or you won't get that "OMG, this must be 2,000 calories per serving!" reaction you would have in a restaurant. That being said, I added garlic, dried mustard (as was suggested by another reviewer), and used a different sharp cheese. I think that you could use any sharp cheese you have on hand. I pureed it, as I didn't want to waste time making dainty chopped bits of brocolli.

Cranberry Chutney I

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
The anti-vinegar people here are missing the point. This is cranberry chutney, not Ocean Spray canned cranberry jelly. There are most likely other recipes here like the way I make it, but, here I go: Saute 1/2 cup of onion for a while, throw in some garlic when the onion is soft, then proceed with the recipe. You can do without the apples and raisins as far as I'm concerned. I used 3/4 c. packed brown sugar and rice wine vinegar. I like adding orange jest. I just used 1 tsp. of ground ginger, instead of all the other spices. Grated fresh ginger would be very good. In fact, if you want it really orange-y, replace the water with orange juice.

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
My mother used to boil (simmer, really) ribs (and chicken) before barbecuing. It cooked the meat properly and ensured that the barbecuing step was faster and less prone to burning. Oh, and people from Brasil love salt. That's just the way they roll.

Simple Baked Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
Really good recipe. I made it in quantity for a charity. One hint: for whatever reason, we are never told to wash rice first in the US. Every culture that eats rice as a staple washes it first in cool water until the water runs clear. It makes a huge difference in the finished product.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
I did this as directed the first time, which was great. Next time, I made it for a large amount of people for a charity event. In this case, Costco was a huge help. (To avoid spending a lot of time and $200 to make a salad.) They had washed spinach, real crumbled bacon and a mixed fruit, seed and nut product without any additives. Huge savings in time and money. Big hit.

Tommy's Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I made this for a charity food thing I do. Good, basic recipe. I added dried mustard (you could also just squirt in wet), some thyme and chopped broccoli. Turned out good.
