Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I dont understand the hype over this recipe. It's just NOT that good. I even spiced it up a little with some seasonings, worcestershire and onion. The london broil turned into roast beef... a very DRY roast beef. How can beef become so dry when it's sitting in 3 cans of soup? (Yes, I used an extra can.) It was also WAAAAY too salty. 2 stars for the easy factor - taste wise it was 1 star. I'll try any recipe once, but this will not be making it into my rotation. Thanks anyway, tho'!

Chicken Enchiladas with Creamy Green Chile Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Very good. I doubled the sauce and added jalapenos, garlic and black pepper to it. I seasoned the chicken and added spanish rice, and red peppers to the filling. I used flour tortillas. I did not fry them.... just popped them in the microwave for a few seconds between damp paper towels. Great as a starter recipe and excellent after being tweaked to our preferences. Hubby loved them.. it was his b-day dinner. Thanks so much!

OREO® and Fudge Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
This was easy and everyone loves it. This is the second time for me making this recipe. I double everything and make it in a disposable 9 by 13 pan. The elasticity of the disposable pan really helps the sandwiches to fit the way you want them to. I used extra Oreos by adding a layer of them to the bottom of the 'cake' and a sprinkle of them on top of the cool whip 'frosting'. I also added a little milk to the pudding mixture to thin it out a bit while mixing... it gets way to thick otherwise and is difficult to mix and spread. The idea of adding a layer of raspberry or something of the like is fantastic (see review below) and I think I will try that next time. Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
This was just ok for us. Hubby and I both agreed. The sauce was kind of bland and too heavy... and I really dont see the point of bothering to bread and fry and then smother in sauce that leaves the breading mushy. Giving the rave reviews the benefit of the doubt I tried it anyway... and I was not surprised when I didnt care for it as much as I had hoped. Like I said - it's just ok. Definitely not a 4 or 5 star recipe in my opinion. I really think it would be better with chicken, too. The chops were very dry despite the sauce. In any case, this wont be making it into my rotation. Sorry. It just wasnt for us.

Pepper Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
This was good and it was quick and easy, too. I tripled the 'sauce' because I tossed it with some bow tie pasta. I added some capers and a little white wine to the mix and served it with a nice green salad. Hubby liked it, I liked it. Well done! Thanks!

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I think this might be my first one star review. Sorry - but I didn't like this much at all. Yeah - it was easy. That's about the only positive thing I have to say about this recipe. The tortillas were mush, the flavor of the cheese was lost and canned chili? Ugh. At the very least do yourself a favor and use homemade chili. I'll take a good ole chili dog any day over this. Sorry to be harsh - but this recipe is just not that good. I followed it exactly and I cannot figure out for the life of me why it has gotten such praise. Being a junk food junkie I thought for sure with the high ratings that I would love it. I was very disappointed but I guess I should have known better. It is what it is and it wont be making it into my regular rotation. I wont be making this again.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
Good stuff! Added a few more spices and doubled the breading as I double dip. Marinated the chicken first in buttermilk, too. Pounded the breasts to about a half inch thickness and fried for about 6 minutes on each side in my cast iron skillet. We liked it a lot. Thanks!

Fiesta Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
This was a good, hearty breakfast on a snowed in day for my hubby and I. I didn't have jalapeno so I used a green bell pepper. I added some garlic, grape tomatoes and ham along with everything else & served it over Texas toast. Yummy and filling! Thanks!

Kielbasa Cabbage Skillet

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
This is 4 stars with the modifications I made. Otherwise it was kind of bland. I followed the recipe exactly as written... and then I added garlic, garlic salt, crushed red pepper flakes, sour cream and cooked egg noodles. Those additions made it very good and I will be making it again. Hubby liked it much better with those modifications as well. Thanks for a great start!

Charlotte's Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Charlotte - I don't hand out 5 stars very easily here.... but this is 5 stars plus. I am making this again right now... I've been making it for years and it's a favorite in my family and my friends love it, too. I can't believe I haven't rated it yet and that there is no pic submitted of it. I will take one tonight. For you doubters - ADD THE KETCHUP!! You wont regret it and it really is key to this recipe along with the wine. This is a perfect soup and soups are my favorite thing to cook. Thank you so much for this recipe... I love it! Everyone loves it! OM NOM NOM!

Basil Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
This recipe was just ok. It definitely needs tweaking. Dip the chicken in MILK? Um, no. I skipped that entirely because you dont really need to bread the chicken and then cover it with sauce. It would end up gritty. If I were going to do it I'd dredge the chicken in flour/egg/bread crumbs, tho'. Also - jarred pimentos are pretty much flavorless. They just got mushy in the sauce. I'd suggest a jarred roasted red pepper. What you have here is pretty much skillet fried chicken with a chicken flavored Alfredo sauce. I liked the addition of the fresh basil... but so much more could be done with this recipe. We liked it, we didnt love it. It's kind of run of the mill. I recommend skipping the breading, cube the chicken and fry it up with more seasonings, then make the sauce and toss it in some pasta. It was a good starter recipe.. but it's Alfredo. Been there, done that. Thanks tho'!

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
This was good - not great. It was very bland and needed a lot of extra seasoning, in my opinion. Next time I will cook the rice in broth and just go with my instinct for seasoning, like I should have today. Good starter recipe, tho. Thanks!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
This was excellent.. the hit of the picnic! Here's what I did differently - I used 1 Fuji apple (rubbed with lemon juice so it wouldnt brown) 1 pear, 1 peach, 1 nectarine, 2 kiwi, about a half cup of pineapple, 1 pint each of strawberries and blueberries... all fresh. I added NO sugar, and used 2 teaspoons of raspberry preserves. I diced the strawberries, kiwi, and pineapple the night before.. keeping them in separate containers, of course. I did not use a food chopper if you dice the fruit by hand it will help to avoid a mushy salsa. I made the chips the night before, to save time. For the chips - i used 2 bags of 10 inch tortillas. From that I got 2 big Hefty Zip Lock bags full. I did the butter cooking spray and cinnamon sugar on each side, and cut them with a pizza cutter. I did some flat on a cookie sheet, and some in mini muffin pans.. the cookie sheets are the way to go if you wanna save on time - the muffin pan chips were fun for the scoopable effect. I baked them at 350 for about 10 minutes and then let them cool on the hot cookie sheet which left them with a nice crispness. The chips were a HUGE hit. Everyone raved about them. Yes - this recipe is time consuming. Be prepared for that from the start.It is worth the effort. My father-in-law even asked me for the recipe. He has NEVER asked me for a recipe in 15 years. This recipe is that good. He wasnt the only one - everyone wanted details. It is definitely a keeper... and will become a July 4th staple at our picnics.

Eileen's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I cannot believe I havent reviewed this one yet. This one I've been making since I found this site a long time ago. It made a believer out of my husband, who hates meatloaf... except for THIS meatloaf. It's a staple in my recipe box. So easy, always good. I serve it with brown gravy and mashed potatoes and a vegetable. Yum. I do change one thing - I only use half of the envelope of onion soup mix, otherwise it's too salty for me. Thanks for a great recipe. There is no other way I make meatloaf now.
