My Mom's Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
Used skinless, boneless breasts, soaked in Ranch dressing for about an hour first. Didn't have seasoned breadcrumbs, so made crumbs from Ranch flavored almond/rice crackers. And, hubby doesn't like wine in the chicken so left that out. What a surprise! Everyone loved it. Nice and juicy, wonderful flavors. Will make this again for sure. Thanks Christy!

Buffy's Refried Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
These are the best homemade refried beans ever! I happened to be cooking bacon for another use, so I used half butter, half bacon grease (no lard on hand). And, I used the liquid from the beans instead of water. Very few dishes in my kitchen escape without garlic, so a good heaping Tbsp. of minced garlic and a small can of diced green chiles sauteed in the bacon grease before adding the beans worked perfectly. And, I topped the beans with grated Pepper Jack cheese. Mmmm.... My family is still shocked that they are getting real refried beans, not out of a can, at home! We even like these better than our favorite Mexican restaurant's. Thank you Buffy.

These are absolutely, hands down, the BEST brownies I have ever made, or eaten! No changes needed to the recipe. Thank you Celeste. :)

Ham Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This was quite good. We are trying to switch to brown rice rather than white, so that is what I did, cooking it in chicken broth in the rice cooker. I didn't use ginger (didn't have any), but I did saute onions, slightly cooked carrot, thinly sliced celery and garlic - and set aside while rice was warming. I had leftover pork chops and so I used thin slices of the meat rather than ham; after sauteing the pork I removed it from skillet and cooked the eggs in the drippings, and set aside. I followed the rest of the recipe, adding some garlic pepper and Sage (healthy dose!) rather than garlic powder. I always add a bit of Sesame Oil when making fried rice, it gives a deeper flavor. And lastly, we always serve our fried rice with chili powder at the table for extra seasoning if desired. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Very good! Great easy recipe for rushed days, simple and down home comfort food. I used spaghetti noodles instead of Ramen (all I had) and seasoned with Johnny's Salt, garlic powder and ground pepper. Also topped with crushed leftover Tim's Cascade Jalapeno Chips before putting in oven. Will make this agian, thanks for the recipe Sue.

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Wonderful recipe! Topped the chops with sauteed mushrooms/garlic, served the Blue Cheese Gravy on the side (daughters not crazy about bleu cheese). I didn't have whipping cream on hand, so I subbed sour cream and a little milk - the gravy was smooth and delicious. Served with Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes from this site, and sauteed brussels sprouts. What a terrific flavor combo. Thank you Toni for a great recipe; it's a keeper for sure!

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Zowie! This was excellent. There is just the right amount of spice (if you like spicy), and the fish comes out moist on the inside, and crispy delicious on the outside. I think it could have used a little cornmeal in the spice mix, to give the coating a bit more substance, and crunch. Nevertheless, paired with my own Mexican brown rice recipe, and a side of spinach; it made a wonderful meal. You gotta try this! Thanks for the recipe.

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Wonderful recipe. Many others did not call for Provolone (we are not Swiss fans), and I only had Sherry on hand (rather than red wine) so I chose this recipe over all the others. Despite the finicky eaters at the table who do not like their bread 'soppy' everyone enjoyed the soup. Other recipes asked for sugar to be added to the onions, which I did out of curiosity. I will not add the sugar in the future. After carmelizing the onions, there is plenty of sugar. The only other thing I did differently is to use my own beef stock from a Crock-potted roast. I believe homemade stock is always better than consomme or boullion cubes. Thank you Lori for a great recipe!

Kielbasa Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This is one of our family's favorite week-night dishes. We like it hot, so we add red pepper flakes while the potatoes are sauteing. Sometimes I will add green chiles as well. Very adaptable to personal seasoning preferences.

Beef Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
This recipe was good; I subbed ground beef because that was what I had on hand, and decided not to use red wine but rather cream sherry, after reading reviews. I also decided to put the sauce together a little differently, making a roux first and adding the sour cream at the end as I am used to doing with stroganoff.

Jack BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
Great flavors! We like it a bit sweeter, so I added 2 Tbsp. honey. Didn't have any Jack Daniels, so used Hieneken beer instead. Thank you Natalie for sharing this recipe.

Double Peanut Butter Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Wonderful! Melt-in-your-mouth cookies. Found these searching for eggless because I was out, and so very glad I did! I was also out of chocolate chips, so had to sub chocolate syrup drops in their place. Otherwise, followed recipe exactly and they were to die for! Thank you Robin.

Roasted Garlic Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Superb! These potatoes were absolutely wonderful, and met my expectations. We enjoyed the combination of the sweetness of the potatoes, and the strong garlic flavor, complimented by the heat and spice of the seasonings. I wasn't sure about trying to peel the potatoes after baking, so I peeled them first, and wrapped each one in foil. This recipe is a definite keeper! Thank you Kelly for introducing me to some unique ideas I never would have thought of!

Classic Red Beans N Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Just realized I had not rated this. It was wonderful - used ham hocks and chorizo instead of ground beef (Emeril says use Andoullie ? sausage, which I did not have). Can't wait to see how it tastes tomorrow. We like it HOT!

Russian Tea Cakes III

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Emma, thank you for the recipe! Made these last night, and they turned out great. I was worried when the dough kept falling apart; but alas after chilling it was very easy to mold into the perfect sized balls. Thanks to all the reviews, we sugared them a second time after cooled off. I expect these will be well received at our cookie exchange later today.
