Creamy German Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
Amazingly good. Just like my most fave slaw from a certain fast food restaurant. I used bagged slaw mix to make it even more simple.

Pecan Crusted Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
So after reading previous reviews I took their advice. I used Dijon mustard and real maple syrup instead of the flour/egg mix. I did fry in butter because there are just some times that using real butter adds a flavor you can't get with olive oil. I also had to "hold" dinner until everyone was here so I fried them and then let them sit, covered, on the stove. Popped into the oven when we were ready. They turned out perfect! So moist and delicious. This one got RAVE reviews from the family. This is going to become a staple in our house.

Overnight French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
Absolute lifesaver sometimes. If we are attending an event the night before I always use this recipe (been in my family for years!), and along with the oven fried bacon...my Saturday/Sunday mornings are that much less intense.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
So easy and SO helpful. My husband and our roommate are bacon FIENDS, so I actually have to cook a pound of bacon on Saturday and half a pound on Sunday. Cooking the bacon in the oven allows me the time to work on the rest of the meal so that everything gets done together. I will sometimes use real maple syrup on the bacon if I am making pancakes or waffles. Not much syrup though because I would have a mutiny, lol.

Pork Tenderloin Diane

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
Wonderful! Simple to prepare, 4 min each side turned out a perfect meat. Let them sit, covered, while I prepared the sauce. Deglazed with sherry and tripled the sauce because I knew my guys would want more of it. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and the peppered corn recipe I found on this website. We were all quite pleased with dinner.

Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Wonderful! It was a cold & rainy night last night and I was looking for a soup recipe. I've had this canned before and loved it so decided to give it a try. Used the Johnsonville Mild sausage (which I ALWAYS have in my freezer!) and increased the cayenne to give it a bit more bite. Used a bit less of the fresh ground fennel seed and added a small amount of chopped fresh fennel bulb with the celery. Right at the very end I added about 1/4 cup of lemon juice to "brighten" the flavors. To serve I placed a serving spoon of the orzo in the bottom of a bowl, topped it with a handful of chopped fresh spinach and then ladled the soup on top of it. It was so good that no one in my family said a word for the longest time. They were too busy eating!!! Definitely added to my recipe box!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
This was really good! I did take the advice to use extra Cajun seasoning since my guys like spicy. I coated the chicken, added extra while cooking it and then tossed in some more while taste testing towards the end. Also, instead of using lemon pepper, I used some lemon peel and fresh ground pepper. For those of you who said it was "soupy" my advice is to let it simmer long enough for it to thicken. When draining the pasta, save a bit of the pasta water. Be sure to follow the rule, "the sauce can simmer, the pasta can't wait." Make the sauce, and while it's "heating through" cook the pasta. This will allow the sauce time to thicken up. Drain your pasta, saving some of the water, then add the pasta directly into the sauce or pour the sauce directly over the pasta. Toss, toss, and toss some more. Then when you think all the pasta is completely covered, toss again. You will find that you may need to add some of that pasta water to thin the sauce, but add it by the tablespoon because you don't want it to go "soupy" again. I really liked GinnyG's suggestion of using some white wine and shrimp but my guys will not allow any kind of seafood to pass their lips, so I sauteed some shrimp in white wine for me and added it to my own portion. If this turned out bland for you, you aren't using enough seasonings. Remember to taste test as you cook and add seasonings until it tastes good to YOU! Play with your food!! ;-)

Easy Tangy Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
Wow! I added a couple of thinly sliced green onions. I thought about using sesame oil but opted for safflower. This was better than it sounded. Glad I tried it.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
I made these because my family asked for some although I don't normally like oatmeal cookies. But these were great! Easy to make. Not necessary to press with the fork, they cook down perfectly. They turn out so flat I was afraid they would be crisp, but they really are nice and soft. The cinnamon flavor is perfect which is what I don't normally like about oatmeal cookies, but it's not overpowering in these. I did add raisins as they were requested. I also used parchment which negated the necessity to grease the pans.

Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Made the sauce out of the romas I picked from the garden that day. Pureed them with a bit of chicken stock and a few dashes of Magi. Roommate asked if I could please make this every Thursday. Tasted just like my ex Polish Mother-In-Law made (and she taught me!) YUM!

Peppercorn Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
Wonderful! Didn't have all the ingredients, so I used minced garlic and some Peppered-Up House Seasoning to make a paste and added extra crushed peppercorns. Followed the instructions from there. My guys raved about it! This one is a keeper, for sure!

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2013
Great recipe! My family loved it. I used Hot Italian sausage to give it a bit of a bite because my family prefers spicy, and I used white potatoes because they are firmer when cubed and cooked. Regular russets have a tendency to turn to mush when cooked. But otherwise it was awesome.

Quick Savory Cranberry Glazed Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
I used my leftover homemade cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving, added a lot more garlic (not overpowering at all!) & used stock to thin. I used it on 2-1 lb center pork loins, basting every 5 minutes. Otherwise, pretty much followed the recipe. My men were happy and that's all that matters.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
This was fantastic! I've never had a Honey Baked from the store so I had no point of reference. But the ham turned out absolutely perfect, my guys positively loved it, and I'm one happy camper.

The Italian Irishman's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
My guys really loved this one! I didn't use the apple because I didn't have any on hand, but will add it next time. I did saute some diced red pepper with the onions, and made the gravy with chicken broth because I didn't have any beef broth. But next time I make this I will be more prepared and make sure I have those items on hand. However... my guys were very happy (husband is Irish, lol) and were excited about taking the left overs for lunch the next day, so a 5 star recipe this is!! Thank you for this one, NikkHoff!

Baked Split Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2014
Perfect chicken! I smoothed a combo of lemon olive oil and a really nice fruity olive oil over the skin, then sprinkled on garlic and onion powders along with Mrs. Dash Salt Alternative. Took the suggestion of others and used a bit of chicken broth in the bottom of the pan. Baked at 475 for 1 hour. The pan I used could not be put under a broiler, but the skin still turned out nice and crispy with the meat fully cooked, juicy and tender! My guys loved it and complimented me on it, which is unusual because they will eat pretty much whatever I put in front of them, so when I get a compliment, I know it was truly great! And so easy it's almost funny. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this wonderful recipe!!!
