Ham Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
This salad is way too sweet for me. If I make it again, I'll use dill pickles and Miracle Whip for tang.

Ham Bone Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
As is, this is a great soup base. I found it needed more veggies and broth for my taste. I added corn, green beans, and carrots and could have added more. I also added a tbsp. of minced garlic. I used a leftover picnic shoulder roast, which gave it great flavor.

Chrissy's Sweet 'n' Sour Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
A little too sweet for me, so I added an extra splash of vinegar. I also added cucumbers as suggested by others, and I loved it!

Fruit Pizza I

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
I only made the sugar cookie crust from this recipe as I already have my own cream cheese mixture. The crust was a little too crisp on day 1, but great for the subsequent days. Definitely not too sweet.

Caramel Frosting VI

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2005
Although my frosting did not set, I believe it was chef error, not the recipe. I used more milk than called for and definitely did not over-beat it. I did not mind though, as I got to lick up all the frosting that spilled over the sides of the plate!

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2005
I've been making brown/soup beans as my mother and grandmother always have, not adding any spices, just what they refer to as "fatback." I used the "fatback" for this recipe as well, but used the listed spices, and I LOVED it! I will never fix beans the same way again! We always serve it with cornbread, fried potatoes, and pickle lily or homemade sourkraut.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2005
I used a flash frozen salmon fillet for this recipe. It turned out very flavorful and didn't make it as obvious that it had been frozen (usually I can tell a big difference).

Sour Cream Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: May 19, 2005
Delicious & versatile! I can't even explain how much I loved this! I used a Vidalia onion instead of red, no green peppers, 2 cloves garlic, frozen spinach, salt and freshly ground black pepper, and fat-free sour cream (couldn't even tell the difference!!!). I added about a tbsp. of butter to the potato mix as well. Next time, I will leave the parmesan out of the spinach mix, because it stuck all over the bottom of my non-stick pan when I sauteed it with the chicken. You could make this vegetarian, substituing your favorite veggie for the chicken.

New York System Hot Wiener Sauce I

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
I found this too dry to simmer for an hour, so I added a small can of tomato sauce. It made a big difference. I also added some crushed red pepper. We had steak and hot dogs on the grill, and my husband said he would rather have had just hot dogs, because the sauce is so good! We had them the next day, too.

Chicken Riggies II

Reviewed: May 17, 2005
Good, but not great. I used fat free half & half to cut down on calories & fat, added cornstarch to thicken it up, and added crushed red pepper to give it a little kick. It still needed something. The flavors blend well together though, and the sauce is very smooth. It just needs some work.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 7, 2005
I give 5 stars, my husband says 3 1/2. These were simple to make and delicious. I used small new red potatoes that I quartered and baked on the bottom rack for about 30 minutes. They had lots of flavor and were slightly crispy.

Brown Sugar, Mustard-Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
We really like our ham with plain prepared mustard & black pepper, so I compromised. First, I scored the ham and rubbed on my original mustard & black pepper mix. 30 minutes before taking it out, I basted it with the Dijon & brown sugar. We all enjoyed it, and I think I will do this from now on. Also, the best store-bought ham I've ever had is Tavern Ham. I find it most often at Wal-Mart. It's a bit pricier, but well worth it.

Grilled Cabbage II

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
With more garlic, this recipe is 5 stars *****. I only used a quarter of a head of cabbage, but used three cloves of garlic. PERFECT. Nutritious & delicious!

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
Yummy! I could've eaten this for my whole meal! I used coarse Hawaiian Sea Salt and a bit more garlic. You don't have to saute the garlic first. Also, on my stove med-high for 10 minutes was too long. Try 5-6 minutes for thin asparagus; I like mine a little crunchy. Thicker asparagus probably takes longer though.

Pasta e Fagioli II

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
INCREDIBLE!!! It doesn't get better than this! I used leftover (unsweetened) baked ham, chopped, & I added one can of sliced, stewed tomatoes. I also added a Parmesana Reggiana cheese rind. I ate this for every meal for 3 days! I loved it!

Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
I left out the corn & black beans. Served it with Kalua Pork, and it was good. I think it would be delicious on grilled chicken or fish.

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
Awesome! I used 1/2 package dry onion soup mix along with the chicken broth. I only had plain onion on hand, so I used one small one chopped. I loved this rice! My husband like it, too.
