Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
This recipe is excellent. We were a little concerned because some of the reviews said the egg rolls were bland. We made no modifications to it, and it was outstanding. Our guests were very impressed. We made an extra dozen and froze them.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
Fantastic! I made this with WW pasta, homemade sauce, and I left out the meat. My new favorite pasta dish...just excellent.

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
These were fantastic. A great way to use leftover grilled salmon. I used fresh Parmesan instead of cheddar. I was worried the cakes were going to fall apart, but once they were cooked on one side, the held up great.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
This is a keeper. I just realized I bought half-and-half for this, but forgot to put it in! It was still great. I reserved half the fried leeks, pureed everything with an immersion blender, then added the leeks and bacon. Also, i used turkey bacon.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Excellent! A keeper! I agree that it takes 50-60 minutes to become golden brown.

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
I make a double batch of this about once a month. It's fantastic. But try this: mix this with some warm refried beans and use it as a dip for chips. Awesome.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
Absolutely fantastic. As most people, I made some changes. I added a teaspoon of cornstarch to the flour mixture, and got the perfect coating when fried. Also, only 1/2 c flour is needed for 1 1/2 pounds of chicken. I left out 5-spice because I hate the licorice flavor, and substituted ground ginger. Finally, as almost everybody seems to agree, this needs much more sauce. I used 12 TBS teriyaki and 8 TBS honey, and it was just the right amount. If you want sauce to cover rice as well, you'd need even more. Instead of mixing the sesame seeds in, I sprinkled them on the finished dish so they would stick to the sauce. Also, I left out the crushed red pepper because of the kids, but I put it on my own serving and it was the perfect complement. This will be one of our favorite recipes, and I have a feeling my wife and I are going to fight over the leftovers for lunch.

Pot Roast in Foil

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This is the best use of bottom round I've ever tried. I used 2 cans of soup as suggested, but didn't make any other changes. The meat came out perfect and I overate. Will make this again and again.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
I just made this for the first time, and it will replace my current "favorite" BBQ sauce. It's excellent. I didn't change a thing. I'll be using this a LOT. Thanks Big Al!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Great! I was concerned because it smelled "ketchupy" while cooking, but the flavor was great. I used a ton of red pepper because I like it hot. I doubled the recipe, and even then I consider that to be 1-2 servings, so plan accordingly.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This was so good! Only change was half-and-half instead of heavy cream. Served with basmati rice. This goes into my rotation, such great flavors.

Skyline Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
We've been away from Cinci for 10 years and I still get cravings for Skyline. This is it. It's exactly like I remember. I love the people who say "I left out this, this, this, and this and added this, this this, and this. It was great." Ummm...that's now a different recipe. This chili isn't supposed to have beans or green onions or anything else.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This is our favorite pesto recipe. We tried recipes that used pine nuts and found it to be bitter. This one is perfect. I have basil growing in my Aerogarden, so I can easily grab 3-4 cups of fresh basil at a time.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Another 5-stars from me. Every time I've tried en eye of round or sirloin tip it's a tough, bland failure. This was perfect! I inserted a meat probe before putting in the oven so I wouldn't have to open the oven during cooking. 3.1 pound roast, 22 minutes at 475F, then reduced to 180F. After one hour I turned on the temperature probe and simply waited for the meat to reach 145F. Rested for 20 minutes, and it was a perfect meium throughout. Enough drippings for a rich, delicious gravy. I'm not sure what happened to those who gave a 1-start review. I'm glad mine turned out. Couldn't be easier.

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Excellent flavors, even though I only had chili sauce, not paste. I know it will be even better next time with chili paste. As everyone else said, the quantities for the sauce are unrealistic. 5X is the right amount to be served over rice. I made this along with brown rice and broccoli lo mein and busted my gut.

Chicken Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
Excellent. The whole family loved it. I made some changes. I already had cooked shredded chicken, so instead of onion I used 1/2 tsp onion powder. Also, 1/2 tsp garlic powder. I left out the bread. Finally, I diced fresh carrots, boiled them for 6 minutes, and added frozen peas.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
I've tried many mac and cheese recipes, and haven't liked any of them. This is by far the best. Perfect texture, great flavor. One thing: I wish I'd thought to put a cookie sheet under the casserole. It boiled over, made a mess of the oven, and smoked up the house.
