Yellow Squash and Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
Very good. My changes were to reduce the sugar (eyeballed about a tablespoon), eliminate the parm, used two garlic cloves, one small onion, and two yellow squash. Sauteed onion, squash, and garlic first. Added about 1/3 cup cheddar to the casserole and topped with about 1/4 cup. Also used pancake mix rather than baking mix as it was what I had and didn't feel like mixing up from scratch. Very tasty!

Garlic Parmesan Orange Roughy

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
Very good, easy recipe, but I did alter a bit. I seasoned the fish with salt, pepper, and the lemon squeeze and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Also, I forgot to add mayonnaise and used straight dijon for that ingredient, then used garlic powder instead of garlic b/c I felt lazy. Stirred it up, it seemed lacking so added a splash of white wine. This turned out excellent, although next time I would half the butter because that was the only ingredient which seemed a bit overpowering.

Tzatziki I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
I used the exact ingredients, with the exception of using greek yogurt instead of yogurt, but ignored the directions. I quartered the cukes, deseeded them, then sliced them thinly with a mandolin. Then put them in a colander with salt for a while, but I don't think it did much. When I was ready to put it all together, I put the cucumber slices in a kitchen towel and squeezed hard - that worked. I mixed all the other ingredients first, then stirred the cucumber slices in. Put it in the fridge for a few hours, and upon taste testing it got the "put this in regular rotation" seal of approval from the husband. It was absolutely not runny using this method.

Italian Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
Solid and simple recipe for peas, good but nothing to write home about.

My Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
I hate reviewing a recipe after changing it up so much, but... this recipe is really bland with no seasoning to liven it up. My changes: only had 3 people eating, so slightly reduced amounts of some things (but not onion or garlic, never those!) to wind up with a meal and manageable leftovers. Also used about 1/2 lb of pulled pork (smoked by DH, so quite flavorful) in place of the ham bone and ham. The dish was good, but not flavorful, if that makes sense. A very generous dose of hot sauce made it pretty tasty, though. Will make again, but will also add a Tbsp of cajun seasoning to the pot and work from there.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
I thought for sure there would be leftovers with the amount of salmon we used to make this. There wasn't. Everyone loved it, and had seconds (and thirds).

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
Maybe I bastardized this recipe, but I cooked it on the stove and completely eliminated the bacon. Just dump everything together in a pot, stir well, cover but vent to let reduce, and let it go while you work on a simple main dish. Stir occasionally and in about 20 minutes you'll have some pretty tasty "baked" beans.

Sauerkraut Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
My family LOOOOOVED this recipe, with the modification that I made everything according to the recipe, but as I was pouring the sugar mixture over the salad, realized that the vegetables would literally be swimming in the sugar/oil/vinegar if I used the entire amount called for. So I only used about half of the liquid. I'll probably make slightly less than half the amount next time to go over the vegetables. This was used for a few weeks as a random side dish (it makes a LOT and I prefer to eat it a little at a time).

Spanish Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
I followed this recipe almost exactly...except I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh to save a trip to the store. Granted, fresh, uncooked tomatoes would add a different dimension to this dish, but I still don't think it would save the potatoes, which are supposed to be the main part. They were...bland. The other vegetables tasted good, although I would change the spices on them anyway (just oregano doesn't do it for me), but the flavor didn't transfer to the potatoes as would be hoped in a recipe of this nature. Maybe if the potatoes were par-cooked, then drained and the remainder of ingredients were added and all cooked together. Still, the leftovers were transformed into a tasty pureed soup (with the addition of broccoli, chicken broth, and velveeta).

Split Pea Soup Atu

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
Delicious! We used 4 cups of chicken broth and 6 cups of water. Also used 2 smoked ham hocks, then threw them away as they didn't have any usable meat on them. Halved the amount of dill called for (which was plenty!). Pureed with the stick blender then added 1/2 to 1 cup diced ham. Also subbed 1% milk for whole milk. Everyone, especially my 6 year old son who hates vegetables, raved about this recipe.

Watermelon Sangria

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
This tasty delight is a lovely treat to toast summer. As suggested elsewhere, the simple syrup isn't needed unless you like things to be VERY sweet. The drink is sweet without being overly so without it. There's a discrepancy between the ingredients and the directions; use the directions for the amount of watermelon (12 cups total) and you'll be able to fill a gallon-sized container. We used our kitchenaid juicer attachment on the watermelon and got 8 cups of juice out of 9 cups of watermelon. (Experts are correct that watermelons are mostly water, it seems!)

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
Very good, and super easy. Didn't need to let the dough sit or anything. We actually turned this one recipe into two good-sized (but thin-crusted) pizzas that easily fed our family of four. Then cooked them on a pizza stone on the grill. Yum!

True Bangers and Mash with Onion Gravy

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
Really nice gravy. I already had mashed potatoes, so didn't use that part of the recipe. It does, however, make a TON of gravy - I ended up freezing about half of it. I intend to use it on top of hamburger steaks...

Best-Ever Texas Caviar

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
It's not Texas Caviar without black-eyed peas, so I didn't even consider using black and pinto beans in this. (Not that I don't like both, but they're not for this dish) Used frozen corn and apple cider vinegar in place of rice vinegar. Very, very good, although this amount of sugar definitely means this is a pretty sweet dish. Use less sugar if you want the flavor to be entirely savory.

Hot and Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
Okay, I completely changed this recipe. But it gave me the IDEA for what I did, and that turned out really well, so it gets a good rating for that. I made a huge batch of this site's "Cornbread Muffins I" by Lisa K and added pineapple chunks (from a can, not pineapple season) and diced seeded jalapeno. Corn chunks in the batter, with larger pineapple chunks, with slightly hot jalapeno bits made for some very tasty cornbread rolls.

Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
love Love LOVE these! I made a huge batch of these for a holiday gathering, then used the batter to add jalapeno and pineapple for a few dozen like this site's "Hot and Sweet Cornbread", and cheddar cheese and canned green chiles to another few dozen, and left the last few dozen plain. All were wonderful, and all freeze well.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
Ate this Sunday night. Cooked it on the grill, though, on one of those holey grill-trays lined with parchment. This would have made a big mess otherwise! Used the same amount of ingredients for 3 6 ounce salmon fillets, so was able to slather the honey mustard and cover with the bread mixture pretty thoroughly. Had to substitute dried parsley for the fresh, but it still tasted lovely.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
Quite tasty. I never add so little onion or green pepper to a dish though - it was closer to 3/4 cup bell pepper and 1 cup onion. Didn't change anything else though.

Easy Chicken Taquitos

Reviewed: May 2, 2012
Just okay. In dire need of flavor. My 6 year old son even said he didn't like them, and I gave him cheese dip to dunk them in! I kept it simple, just canned chicken, cheese, hot sauce, and a little onion like the poster mentioned. I'd add cumin and chili powder at the very least. Brush the top of the taquitos with oil before baking as well, to give the tortillas a little oomph.
