Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
These turned out just as advertised except that they didn't raise as high as the pictures. This only tells me it's time to throw out the huge container of baking powder that's older than the hills! These were perfect, fantastic with our soup last night --so much so, that I brought out a tub of creamy strawberry fruit spread (with "real strawberries and natural yogurt") and we had them for dessert, too. Highly recommended that way as well! Yum, yum, yum. The only recipe I'll use from now on. Thanks so much!!!

Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Used 6 boneless skinless thighs. Didn't have a lemon so also used the 2 T. lemon juice. Quick, simple, no fail, no fuss recipe. Came out tender and delicious. Next time I'll put the sauce over pasta. Thanks!

Roasted Cajun Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
I didn't have a great recipe for roasted potatoes. Now I do! I didn't have shallots, fresh garlic or parsley so I used 3 green onions, 1 t. garlic powder and 1 T. parsley flakes (and added it right in the mixture). Added 15 minutes for extra crunch. Really good, just right potato dish for so many recipes. Thanks!

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
Read lots of reviews and sprayed the whole cauliflower with cooking spray but it didn't help keep the mixture on very much. For our taste, used 1/4 t. each of garlic powder and oregano and 1/8 t. red pepper (didn't have flakes). Very nice mixture of flavors but like others, will break apart cauliflower next time. Great, different recipe. The hub isn't a big fan of this veggie but also really liked it this way. A keeper!

Super Sausage Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
The hub who never made or understood white gravy and always thought it was yucky-looking cooked this up. To make it palatable to himself, he turned it brown. He achieved this by adding a 1/4 t. Kitchen Bouquet and a 1 t. Worcestershire Sauce. He then added 2 T. chives and 1/2 t. prepared minced garlic. He baked up Grands biscuits and he is now a convert and forever hooked. He had the Tabasco out at his plate (yuck!) but I noticed he didn't use it. VERY easy recipe and the bonus is, he's showed "ownership" of it so I have some kitchen time off. Thanks for the recipe, Mr. Evan's, but I have to admit it was his own spicy elk sausage that he used, naturally.

Pizza Salad II

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
I can't believe all the great compliments I received on this dish! I've been cooking for a long, long time and this one is right up there with my other "bests". I upped some of the quantities but that was it: Used 10 green onions, 8 oz. fresh sliced mushrooms, 8 oz. pepperoni, 15 oz. black olives, 2 T. garlic powder, 3/4 t. pepper, 16 oz. bottle Zesty Italian dressing (or Robusto Italian), 2 c. Mozzarella and 1/2 c. Parmesan. I had people asking to take some home for work the next day. Raves, raves, raves! (If our daughter wasn't coming to dinner, I would've used spicy pepperoni but I knew she would've just picked them all out). Thanks for a true keeper!

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
I used a 2# roast, doubled the pepper (personal pref.). Didn't have fresh garlic so used 1 t. garlic powder. For a 5# roast, I might double all the spices. As another suggested, rolled the roast in the mixture right in the glass dish I used. I did double the sauce using brown sugar and cider vinegar. I only had 3 T. soy sauce so used 1 T. fish sauce (I know that maybe doesn't sound good but it was!) We just kept going back for more. Had to stop so we'd get a second meal out of it! The sauce is to die for!!! I was afraid it would be too sweet but it was slightly, perfectly sweet with a great tang to it. Served over rice. A very easy, fantastic keeper! Thank you!

Super Short Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
Didn't have any chili sauce so took ketchup and added a couple T. of Tiger Sauce and 1 T. Chili Paste Sauce. As others suggested, thickened with cornstarch/water. Made a nice sauce to put over rice. Used boneless ribs. Forgot about taking the cover off halfway through cook time, just cooked covered the whole 2 hrs. and they just fell apart. Really good no-fail recipe. Thank you!

Camper's Breakfast Hash

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
This is nice and easy and a one-pot meal which is always appreciated when camping, especially first thing in the morning. That is the reason hub usually makes this (the "first thing in the morning part". I worked graves for too long and night is day).

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2007
I can't say anything original about this. It's a guaranteed no-brainer. I was a little hesitant about all that salt but it was perfect (not too salty). Did 1 hour, covered, at a slow/medium boil and 1 hour covered in a pan on the grill set at 325 (we were cooking other stuff on it so used it as our oven). It just fell apart, even the bones. We didn't mind but maybe others would not cook it to that point. We read once not to ever boil your ribs as the marinade won't be absorbed. Maybe by following it with the baking eliminates that rule? These were just wonderful! Totally fell apart like we like them to. Thanks for such an easy, easy recipe!

Ten Clove Garlic Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
I marinated beef in this for several days and we made shish kabob with it, basting all of the skewers (onion, green pepper, tomato, pineapple) with the leftover marinade. As suggested, I went down to 1/3 c. canola oil, used 50% sodium (lite) soy sauce, no salt, 1 t. pepper (we like it peppery). I was in a hurry so I used 2 T. garlic powder. WOW! This stuff rules!

Bronco Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
We made these last night (I put them together/he grilled). They were as great as all the rave reviews said they were. This will be "the" burgers from now on. Had to knock the quantities down as I only had 1 1/2#'s of meat. Next time I'll make the full amount and freeze them all made up and ready to go. Thanks for a burger we will be anxious to serve. Oh, hubby did agree with your flipping method!

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
We had this last night and everyone just raved about it. I did steam the broccoli first. As suggested, I used 1/2 t. salt and 1/4 c. of oil (canola, our preference, but will try olive next time). Was pressed for time so used 1 T. garlic powder. WOW, was this ever good! Husband, daughter, son-in-law and I ate only that until it was gone! I didn't even have Parmesan so I can only imagine how fantastic next time with it.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
Very simple and very good. I omitted the salt. The mixture was enough for 4 chops. I had to cook them longer and so ran out of liquid. I added a can of beer I had on hand to finish the cooking and made a nice gravy out of it. I guess that doesn't sound too good but you couldn't taste the beer at all and was wonderful over mashed potatoes. A fast and easy meal for such great taste. Thanks!

Easy Shepherd's Pie with Garlic Romano Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
This was always my husband's favorite comfort food. I didn't quite get it (bland, blah) but after trying MANY recipes, I'm a believer after this one. I had to change a few things as to what I had on hand. I was trying to use up mashed potatoes so I added 1 T. of garlic powder and the 1 t. oregano to the meat mixture. Only had 12 oz. frozen corn and the tomato sauce had jalapenos in it. Had 6oz. Feta that I sprinkled over the meat mixture then frosted it all in a 9x13 dish with about an inch of mashed potatoes (at room temp. to ease spreading). Next time, I'll add chives or parsley for color and sprinkle paprika on top. This was SO tasty. I know it is my husband's favorite but he ate almost half of the whole dish himself. This will be the only recipe we use now. Thank you!!!

Sauerkraut Hot Dog Topping

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Ditto what Molle said! We are kraut eaters but I would think if you had some that weren't, the sweetness in this mixture just might change their mind. Thanks!

Seattle Cream Cheese Dogs

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
I used brats but I can see this would be great with kielbasi, too (and hot dogs!) The cream cheese really made it. I nuked it in a cup for 30 seconds or so to soften. Per Molle's review, I used the Sauerkraut Hot Dog Topping, also. This is the way to go serving dogs of any variety! Thanks!

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
This was absolutely wonderful!!! Salmon has a strong taste but if you want to "mild it down", this is the recipe. I had a nice chunk but it was only .86 ounces, about 1 1/2" tapering down to 1/16". I scaled the whole recipe down to "one serving" to get the quantity of ingredients right (even though the amount of salmon was just right for two). I used dried herbs for everything but the same quantity and added pepper, the same quantity. I added 1 t. garlic powder and then didn't measure, just sprinkled the dill over it to finish. I did go to the 40 minutes for baking. It was PERFECT from end to end! It was moist and flaky. Soooo easy yet could be part of an elegant meal. Thanks for a terrific recipe!

Baby Carrots with Dill Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2007
My husband thinks that dill is only for pickles but I snuck this one in on him and we both liked it. Looks so nice, too. Thanks!
