Wisconsin Native's Beer Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
I am a former Wisconsin native, too, and really love a good beer cheese soup. This recipe was excellent. I was worried, however, that the carrots & celery would be undercooked and make the soup too chunky, so I boiled them until about three-quarters-soft. I also sauteed the onions in butter & olive oil along with some bacon until they were tender. Cooled all the veggies then put them in a food processor until they were "bits and pieces". (I had also added the hot pepper sauce, cayenne, Worcestershire, dry mustard, salt and pepper into the food processor.) I added the seasoned vegetable mixture to a saucepan along with the beer (Miller Lite, of course - it's either that or Leine's!) and reduced sodium chicken broth. Boiled that mixture up while working on the flour/butter/half & half. It seemed to be easier to make each of these components separately, and the soup turned out brilliantly. I let it simmer a lot longer, probably about 30 minutes, to thicken and let that delicious aroma permeate my kitchen. Delicious!

Crabless Chicken Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
These were awesome! My husband had made chicken on the grill and we had 2 bone-in breasts left over the next day. Not about to waste those, so I looked up "leftover chicken recipes" and stumbled upon this recipe. I took the advice from some of the previous reviews and I used a processor to get the chicken as broken down as possible. This turned out perfectly since then I didn't need to use an egg to hold it together. The mayonnaise does a good job of that. I didn't have hot sauce so just used a tablespoon of hot Pace Picante sauce. I also substituted spicy mustard in place of the tartar sauce. For the breading, I used panko bread crumbs and I baked the cakes in the oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes each side on a parchment-lined baking sheet. They ended up perfect with a fantastic crunch! I ate them plain, while my husband had his on hamburger buns with a bit of bbq sauce topping. Definitely will make these again!

Moussaka

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
SO worth the time and dirtying up some dishes (that's what a dish washer is for, people!). Athens is our favorite city and this recipe brings us back to our fond memories of Greece. Will make this often!

Nana's Slow Cooked Meaty Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
My husband usually dreads it when I make pasta because the sauce is always so lacking. THIS he absolutely loved. He said "You can make this almost every day of the week!" And I only used beef, no sausage - so next time I'll try using the sausage as well. Thanks, Lora, it was a big hit!

Teriyaki Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
Excellent! Both my husband and I loved it. Only thing I did was put a tent of aluminum foil over the turkey to try to preserve moisture. Will most definitely make this again. Yum, yum, yum!

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
While very tasty, this didn't turn out as crunchy as I expected. I threw in a few crushed almonds with the coconut flakes thinking that would complement the flavor, but perhaps the nuts ended up taking away from the coconut's ability to toast properly. I made a pretty good dipping sauce of store-bought sweet & sour sauce, fresh cut pineapple and crushed red pepper blended in a food processor.

Lasagna Helper

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I didn't have all these ingredients on hand, so I used 1 cup chicken stock and 3 cups water instead of the beef bouillon, and a can of tomato paste instead of tomato soup. I also added a quick bechamel sauce (butter, sour cream, flour, garlic powder, fresh ground pepper) to top it off. Then sprinkled a bit of mozzarella. Was very good, passed hubby's test, will make it again!

Twice-Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
I wanted some "crunch" on top of the potatoes, so I crushed some Funyuns and sprinkled them over the top. That was a big hit with my husband! I also added a dash of cayenne pepper into the mixture, then sprinkled the tops with a bit of paprika.

Hawaiian Ham Skillet

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
This was super-easy. I made a couple of tweaks - instead of green pepper, I used 1/2 a finely chopped jalapeno, de-seeded. I also stir-fried the pineapple to char it a bit before adding the sauce. I used white wine instead of vinegar, and a bit of apple juice instead of water. I made Arborio rice on the side. All in all, it's a winner!
