Easy Weeknight Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
This was much better than I expected after reading the reviews. The sauce was actually pretty good and very easy. I went with half and half and instead of 1/2 cup parm I used 1/4 cup parm and 1/4 cup mozzarella. I used Shirtake noodles instead of pasta to lower the carbs and instead of chicken I sauteed some shrimp coated in Cajun seasoning. Next time I would use the pasta and save the Shirtake for something else. All in all I feel this is a good starter.

Country House Bed and Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I used seasoned croutons, Woebler's Sweet Hot Mustard, sauteed some garlic and onion in the butter before tossing in the croutons. Topped off with some chopped fresh cilantro and grape tomatoes. It was delicious! I'm sure the original is good too but I love my food flavor packed and needed to add the garlic and onion! I made 1 serving and baked it about 20 minutes.

Pumpkin Pie Spice I

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
I made this because I was out of bought Pumpkin Pie spice and I wanted to make the pumpkin fudge on this site today. I didn't have the allspice but I had cloves so subbed those instead. Love it and will never buy the pre-made spice again. This is much more frugal!

Andioulle Chicken Sausage Stuffed Portabellas

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
I made several changes - but mostly with amounts. I used the Andioulle Sausage since that is what I had on hand. I felt it would have more kick to it anyway than the regular sweet sausage. I think the buffalo sausage would be a great switch up too, with a little franks added to the cream cheese mixture. I ended up using only 1 sausage and sauteed some of the mushroom stems with the sausage. I sprinkled the tops with a little panko before baking to give it a little "crunch" They were yummy!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
Used this as a marinade for kebobs over the weekend - was awesome! Grumpy, who is a proclaimed Kebob hater, wanted to know if we had any leftover that evening! I made slight changes (used fresh garlic and reduced the ingredients to make less marinade). The marinade was a great way to flavor the chunks of beef sirloin and this will be kept as one to use over and over again. Thank you!

Parmesan Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
Grumpy makes this but calls it Bachelor's Pasta. Garlic is added to the recipe, a bit more butter than called for here and we always use salted butter - not margarine, preference in taste. No onions here either but we do sprinkle it with parsley to give it a bit of color!

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake in a Glass

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
At first I said I wasn't too crazy about this but the more I drink it the more I like it. ;o) Made it as a martini with vodka whipped cream (almost more potent than the vodka itself!) Still going to try some chocolate cake recipes with it...

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
due to dietary needs I used half sugar and half splenda, lite sour cream and white whole wheat flour. I also halved the recipe since we didn't need 24 in the house for 2 people. I was very happy to find that with the changes I needed to make that the muffins quality did not suffer in the least! This one is a keeper!

Individual Baked Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Great starter recipe - Instead of a whole egg I whipped up mine and added peppers, onion, and some jalapeno pepper cheese diced up into it. I also used the 'pre-cooked" bacon you buy in the box...was very convenient! I will make several of these ahead of time and freeze them for quick morning warm ups at work!

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
I made several changes to this recipe - however as written I am sure Grumpy would have liked it better. I changed up the sauce some and spiced it up with black bean chili sauce. I totally LOVED it. I am big on peppers and spice. I think next time I will have to forgo the spice for Grumpy and go with the amount of peppers in the recipe. I guess this was more for me than him since he's not a pepper fan either but I was craving beef cabbage and peppers and this recipe came up first in my search!

Amish Hash Browns

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
This was a good starter recipe for me. I changed the method some and squeezed the potato shreds dry to get a LOT of the water out. Helped tremendously! I also cut the recipe down to suit 2-3 people. I did not use anywhere near as much oil or onion and added some garlic powder to give more flavor punch.

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Missing some salt - I added 1/2 teaspoon and added the zest of one lime. Dipped in chocolate (dark and white) and decorated with gold and pearl dust along with christmas colored sugars! Pretty cookie and quite fragile!

Crispy Mashed Potato Pancake

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I have made potato cakes before and had them be way too soft. A lot has to do with the condition of your mashed potatoes when you begin. If your potatoes are on the wetter side, then as others have suggested here, its a good idea to add some Italian seasoned bread crumbs. I used 2 cups of mashed - I had made sour cream and chive mashed potatoes. They had sat in the fridge overnight so they were not super moist, but moister than I wanted if I were to add the egg for binding. I added 1/4 cup bread crumbs along with some of the garlic powder and skipped the Italian seasoning since it was in the crumbs. Next time I might add some extra though as it wasn't as flavorful as I would have liked. I made these into potato bites/small plate/appy sized. I used a small cookie scoop and dropped the ball onto a plate coated with Italian bread crumbs. I coated the ball with crumbs and flattened the cake out some. Served with a small dollop of sour cream, some crispy bacon and fresh chopped chives. YUMMY!

Spoiled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I used the cooking method here while I did not use the sauce. I liked the cooking method - it seemed work really well and eliminated a greasy mess. I didn't bother with the sauce however I'm sure its good...I used Sweet Baby Ray's sauce. I give this 4 stars just for the cooking method.

Sweet Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
I made this recipe without reading any of the reviews and wasn't surprised to find that I was not the only one who cut the sugar in the muffin. I went with 3/4 cup (for one batch) and next time I would go with 1/2. That said, they were still delicious, just a little bit sweet. They get 5 stars on their own just because they were not dry!!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Great recipe. I modified it some, I only used 1 tablespoon butter and instead of chicken broth I used vegetable broth, and instead of Parmesan cheese, I used Asiago cheese that I freshly grated using a microplane zester (about 1 cup of cheese). It was DELICIOUS!
