Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
Very basic and not very flavorful as written. I added Worcestershire sauce, peppers and garlic as some had suggested, and it was still not that flavorful - can't imagine what it would have been like without. I would have liked a little direction as to the quantity of salt and pepper, since you can't taste a raw hamburger mixture to gauge how much to add as you would soup. As for the sauce on top, you can do as well with a good barbecue sauce - or for that matter - dabbing some ketchup on top. I did like the suggestion to add milk, had never heard of that, and it did add some moisture to the recipe. Will continue to look for a meatloaf recipe that's got a little more going for it.

Roasted Herb Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
Delicious taste and aroma from surprisingly simple ingredients. I misread the recipe and dumped all the ingredients on top of the potatoes- before realizing only one TB of the soy sauce mixture needed to be put on the potatoes. No matter- just drained some of the soy sauce mixture out of the pan and brushed it onto and inside the chicken. The only change I made - aside from my mistake - was to leave the garlic out of the sauce, and instead tossed garlic and carrots with the potatoes, and slipped some sliced garlic under the skin of the chicken. Tasty and simple- will definitely make again.

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
Super easy, really great for a large group. Made this for a crowd. The taste was delicious, and it stayed cold all day long without needing ice cubes that would water down the taste. I froze it in gallon freezer bags. Will be using this anytime I need refreshments for a crowd.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Unexpectedly delicious! Could not believe that the combination would create something so tasty and easy. Shared it with a friend, and they love it too. It's pretty forgiving of changes. I added celery, more onions, more water, and quartered potatoes in the last hour of cooking. It's the combo of the gravy mix, Italian & Ranch salad dressing mixes that make this one an easy and delicious choice. Try it!

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
The best lasagna I ever had was from a little Italian restaurant in NYC. One of the things that distinguished it was that it wasn't seasoned in a way that was overwhelming - you could enjoy the separate flavors of tomato, pasta, cheese and herbs. This is very similar to that recipe. It's delicious-not at all like Stouffers, but also not super spicy. I added 1TB of mixed Italian spices- not just oregano- and real minced garlic instead of garlic powder, but those were my only changes. My husband and I both loved this recipe. We both enjoy super spicy foods- but we appreciated the subtler flavors of this lasagna. Update: the one thing I would have to add is that you may find that you need more sauce or you will have a dry lasagna- so adding a little more water, a jar of tomato sauce- or just having some prepared spaghetti sauce on the side when it comes time to layer would be helpful. And maybe its just me, but the layering instructions could be more clear - like sauce, noodles, sauce, cheese, noodles- etcetera.

Grilled Cilantro Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2010
Very flavorful way to make salmon on the grill. I started to make this before I realized that I didn't have enough honey- had to substitute some maple syrup and sugar - and it still worked out well. Must be the combo of sweet, garlic, lime and fresh cilantro. Can't wait to make it again- with the proper amount of honey!

Easy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
OMG- delicious and easy! We will be making again! Because a can of coconut milk is more than 1 1/2 cups, I used the rest of the can in the sauce, and didn't have skewers, so I used a grill pan to cook the chicken. waste not want not! I could see adding a touch of heat, red peppers perhaps, but it's very flavorful as is. We ate it over jasmine rice with chopped salad. Thanks Shannon!

Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Great, tasty dish and fast! I made a few changes by adding chicken and mandarin oranges, and substituting sunflower seeds for cashews, and olive and sesame oils for the vegetable oil. As a few reviewers suggested, I also added half the spice packet from my Oriental-style ramen noodles. This is a very adaptable recipe, and quite good.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Using romaine lettuce instead of iceberg means a little more flavor and crunch- lettuce doesn't wilt and become soggy like iceberg has a tendency too. Adding the taco spice to the beans instead of the sour cream is the difference in this dip. Great if you like the flavor of a dollop of sour cream on your taco. Brought this to a Super Bowl party and the plate was practically licked clean! Great!

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
This is a good dip- and it does give the flavor of buffalo chicken wings. Very fatty, which is not everyone's taste. This could probably serve 32 people instead of 16- because it's very rich.

Broccoli Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Made it absolutely as the recipe stated- delicious. Guests asked for the recipe and gobbled up broccoli like it was candy. Does need to marinate for a while- and maybe one fewer TB's of vinegar would be fine, since there's lots of extra liquid. Thanks!

Cranberry Martini

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Great! I used cranberry vodka and cranberry/pomegranate juice for even better results. Garnished with cranberries and a twist of lime for a red and green holiday look. Very nice-thanks!

Garlic Parmesan Orange Roughy

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
This is a scrumptious way to serve orange roughy - I didn't change a thing. Make sure you have it at least six inches from the broiler, because otherwise it will start smoking like crazy. I give it 5 stars for taste, but took away one star overall for high fat content and calories.

Artichoke and Crabmeat Triangles

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Use mock crab and rye crackers. This was a very delicious appetizer and my husband requests it.
