Bolognese Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
A perfect recipe. I made a double batch because I was using up all my bell peppers but they didn't last long. My family loved the smell as they cooked & loved the taste even more.

Monterey Ranch Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
I, too put the cheese on top, at the end. The second time, I made a quick salsa with my peppers & tomatoes. I spooned the salsa on top and covered with monterey jack cheese. Best ever!

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2011
A fool proof way to cook a roast!!! Because of my oven, I set it to 200 after the initial sear. I also rolled it in peppercorn, spices & sea salt before I popped it in the oven. It was perfect and I will be doing it for Easter, too.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Great taste. I served this topped with shredded parmesan and with a mixed greens salad and garlic toast. A house full of teenagers ate it up.

Good burger but a long list of ingredients for just a "good" burger.

BREAKSTONE'S Curried Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I made this at Christmas because my oven went out on Christmas Eve. Wow! I loved the potatoes more than the traditional sweet potatoes with marshmallow on top. One recommendation, use MILD curry powder if you are making this recipe for a gathering. I used my favorite curry and it was too spicy for some.

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was a quick & easy hit with guests. I made this along with other appetizers for a Holiday open-house for family and friends. I kept it warm in a slow cooker and had my rice cooker next to it for any party-hoppers that wanted something more substantial. I will make this again and again.

Frozen Chocolate "Souffles"

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
Very, very sweet and rich--almost too much. It is good for a simple frozen desert but use 5 oz. paper cups because it is so rich.

Creamed Beef for SOS

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
Hamburger Gravy, is what we call it. We have been making this for years with the only difference being using fresh chopped onion and canned Evaporated milk. We sometimes use lean meat and add drippings saved from a roast. The kids love it and their perfect meal is mashed potatoes topped with the hamburger gravy and canned Le seur peas.

Teriyaki Onion Burgers

Good but tasted like artificial, processed food. Some people don't mind that but my family isn't used to it.

Buffalo Chicken Strips II

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Thanks for the dip recipe. It is good but my family could tell it was lowfat. They don't need the fat so they will have to get used to it. I like it and will make it again.

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
It was good but Blah. It was missing something. It needed egg and something else in the filling as it didn't seem substantial enough, especially if you use a heavier sauce. I would make enough changes that it wouldn't be the same recipe. That is just my preference.

Creamy Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Easy to prepare, great taste. It tastes like Greek lemon chicken soup. I read the reviews and made the mistake of doubling the rice (the first time), as many recommended. DO NOT DOUBLE THE RICE; it is a soup. The rice needs to cook longer than the recipe called for and that alone will thicken the soup. Do not use minute rice or precooked rice, it won't turn out the same. I found that it is better to cook the first 6 ingredients a little before adding the rice and cook the rice at least 20-25 minutes. Allowing for the increased cooking time will make all the difference in this recipe. I will continue to make this soup but I do enjoy it as a soup not a thick stew so I will never double the rice again.

Pasta Pancetta

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
After reading reviews, I still wanted to try this one. I rate it 4 of 5 because I , too, altered it but not as much as a lot of people did. I could not find Pancetta and did not want to travel across town to get it, nor did I want to use bacon (bacon makes everything taste like bacon). I did use a MILD, sweeter, thin-sliced country ham and that worked perfectly for the recipe. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly until the end. I didn't think the sauce would adequately cover 12 oz. of pasta so I added a tad more olive oil to the noodles and just before tossing the pasta and sauce, I added a can of Hunt's Diced Fire Roasted tomatoes, drained and straight from the can and mixed the parmesan with the pasta, too. I topped each portion with a little grated parmesan and crushed red pepper flakes. The pepper & tomatoes added more color and the oomph it was missing. I served it with a spinach salad and fried goat cheese and it was a great meal. I will make it again. I do have more advice--cook the noodles less than you would for al dente--do not overcook. This allows the sauce to mix well. Return the mix to the pasta pot (off the heat, of course) to let it rest before serving. Over cooking the pasta may be the reason many of the people are underwhelmed with the results.
