German Leek and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2014
I used a ham hock instead of a ham bone. And for my salt, all I had was sea salt. Made this for an Oktoberfest Party and it was a big hit. I left some potato chunks in for texture. I was handing out this recipe after the party. I recommend for a big party to just a cozy evening home with the family.

Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
Couldn't stop tasting sauce before I put on the salmon. So easy and few ingredients, I was a little skeptical, but it was delicious. I also added a little honey, but not much.

I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Served this with Rosemary Ranch Chicken from this site and homemade pita bread. Thanks Chef John, for another 5 star recipe!!!

We doubled this recipe for leftovers, and I regret to report...no leftovers! This is one recipe you don't have to tweak.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2013
I have made this a few times and I can't believe I didn't rate it. It is very easy and delicious. I love this in salad, or with grilled veggies and rice.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2013
My son said the best chicken he's ever had, we were snacking on it all night long. I made the original version, and another version where I added garlic powder and Sriracha chile sauce. I loved both, but I think I'll make with my add ons from now on.

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
I looooove beergaritas. This one is delicious. I also added triple sec because I had it, but it really didn't need it. The drink was 5 stars as is. This will be my official summer drink.

Pina Colada III

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
Liked this recipe better than some others I tested off the internet. By other reviewer recommendations, I used cream of coco. Didn't have pineapple juice onhand so ended up using diced pineapple from can. We really enjoyed this drink!

Ham Tetrazzini 4.5

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
Was not in the mood for another ham sandwich, so I was pleasantly surprised to see this recipe on the main page. With less than $5, i was able to transform leftover ham into a nice pasta dish for four. I did exact recipe and giving it a 4 as is...then later added sauteed mushroom and pepper. Cream of mushroom w/ roasted garlic was on sale, so I used that. Next time I would like to use cream or half and half and maybe parm reggiano, for another twist to this nice base dish. Served with toast spread with homemade roasted garlic butter. In the category for easy peasy and done in a jiffy, this get's a 5.

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
3.25 stars for taste and texture. a little to yeasty for me and a bit dense for hamburgers. I made mine into longer buns for tortas and grilled them with some butter. My boys said they were good. 4 Stars for ease. I'm new to bread making, a total amateur...that could've contributed to texture issues. TFS

Mom's Great Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
The Wrchr sauce was a bit much for me, but my son loved it and ate most of it. I only had frozen french cut beans, so maybe if i had used the canned, the flavor would've been different for me. But great in a pinch.

Easy Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
In terms of ease I say a 4 and flavor i would say 3.5 I was able to make 40 in about 45 mins in two seperate batches. I used other suggestions and added vanilla and popped 3/4 air popped pocorn all together. This way they weren't too sweet or gummy. Also added food coloring to make orange. Made these in the morning before work to pass out to the daycare costume parade and will probably use again for son's Harvest Party. TFS

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
the flavor was good and the texture was almost right. Keeping in mind I've only tried making tortillas once before with no success, so it just may be my technique. My result of this recipe was a little dry and not very pliable. They didn't bubble. but again it could just be me. Hope you have better luck. I'm going to be testing different recipes until I can come as close to my mom's tortillas as I can.

Queenie's Killer Tomato Bagel Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
I'm giving this a 5 because I know it would've been a 5 if I had some fresh basil here at work. I did have cucumber and that was a nice fresh addition. Great for a lite meal with no fuss. Can't wait to try again with a red onion or fresh basil. TFS

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
This worked fine for last minute corn on the grill. i do prefer to soak first, but didnt' have time and it was fine. I grilled first with just husks and then covered with foil the next 20 mins after husks started burning. Mostly on this recipe to get grill time. Thanks for submitting.
