No Fuss Shredded Beef Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Great recipe! I followed the recipe but took the advice of others. I did not use the beef broth at all. There was plenty of liquid. Could have drained the tomatoes and use the broth instead. But no need for both. Oh, darn! I did do something different. I used a chipotle in adobo sauce instead of fresh jalapeños. And jarred roasted pablanos instead of green chiles. Love the coffee idea! Great recipe thank you for sharing.

Chocolate Shell Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This was the perfect "sauce" for what I needed. I made a bowling ball cake and iced it with the chocolate shell. Easy to work with and way tastier than fondant.

Yummy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Great basic meatloaf! I too used less crackers (about 3/4). But the same amount of water. I agree that a bigger pan makes all the difference here. I added some Mexican oregano (because I had it on hand) and topped with homemade Cranberry Ketchup. Yummy.

Slow Cooker Southern Lima Beans and Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Simple, yummy and a little addicting. I made these beans exactly as written. The only thing is my beans were almost done after 3 hours on high. I added the spices, stirred and left them on high for almost one hour more. Perfect! Will be making these again and again.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
This is the only way I cook my bacon! I learned from a restaurant as well. I don't use foil, however. I use parchment paper - 375 - 20 to 25 mins. Thin sliced bacon only for me. (just my preference) Thanks for posting!

Crispy Fried Fish

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
I found NOTHING wrong with this recipe. Yes, it did make a lot of batter but I didn't mind. I did use 1.5# of fish because there are 5 of us in the family. It was so easy! My 8yo son helped me make dinner last night and I really didn't have to help HIM too much. He did most of the work - it's that easy. Try it! You won't be disappointed.

Chicken in Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
I've made this several times. It's part of our rotation. Changes? I don't like cream of chicken soup so I use cream of mushroom (sometimes homemade) but do have to add a few herbs to make up for the lack from the soup. I also don't like olives. I just leave them out. Oh and I use chicken thighs - only because my family likes them better. As to others that have rated this very poorly ("Too salty" "Too briny") Don't use artichokes from a can - use either frozen or jarred packed in water. Olives are very briny - choose some milder ones. Don't like the wine? Leave it out.

Garlicky Beet Delight

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Fabulous! I followed the recipe exactly. My hubby loves beets and he ate everything. My kids had never had beets before and really liked the result. I will be making again and again. Thank you for posting.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
I am giving it 5 stars because the flavor was really great! It truly only feeds 4 people, though. Not a big issue I will just add more meat next time. I can see how some people had problems with the potatoes not being tasty. I seasoned every layer with s&p and paprika. I then dotted the potatoes with duck fat and cooked uncovered. The potatoes came out slightly crisp and oh so good! Oh and I took one reviewers idea and didn't remove the beef to cook the veg. I just undercooked the beef before putting all the veg in to cook. Easy peasy. Thanks for sharing!

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
Well, I actually managed to add too much liquid! So I simmered the sauce until half gone and added some cornstarch slurry. Perfect! Love this recipe!

Creamy Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
Fabulous! I read the other reviews and decided to make it as is. Beautiful! Yes, you could cut the calories down with little butter and no cream if you want. Just make sure to add more stock/broth for a soup consistency. The only thing I did different was I added some crumbles of crispy bacon on top. This could EASILY be a vegetarian dish by just subbing veggie stock for the chicken stock

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I served this Christmas dinner and it was amazing! Followed the recipe to the letter. Really wouldn't change a thing. I do like the idea of roasting the shallots and reducing the port/stock beforehand. Nice time saver. Thank you so much for sharing!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
This is a really great, easy recipe. I took one reviewers idea and made the chicken in a crock pot. I even used frozen chicken breasts! Cooked low for 6 hours. Perfect! I used Mexican oregano which has a totally different taste from the Italian herb. And added cilantro which made it perfect! Thanks for sharing this recipe! Oh and yes! Do double the lime.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
Ok, caveat: I'm not a big fan of ricotta cheese. And I add sour cream quite often to my pasta dishes. I'm not going for "authentic" Italian, here. I'm feeding my family good food. Having said all of that - I really liked the recipe! I gave it 4 stars because the ground beef needed something. I did sauté' it with onions and garlic, s&P. I think next time (and yes there will be a next time) I'll use Italian sausage. OH! And the jar sauce really matters. Use what you would use plain on pasta. If the sauce is bland this too will be bland. Thank you for a really nice recipe!

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
As another reviewer said I, too, don't like to give 5 stars when I change the recipe. But this is great the way it is. (Albeit possibly too salty). What did I change? Chicken stock - no bullion. Ham hock - no diced ham. Omitted the salt & the bell pepper. I'm from Texas & have been growing then cooking my own peas for years. This is an easy almost dead on Southern New Year's Eve/Day staple. Will make again & again. Thanks!

Bacon Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
Fabulous! I didn't modify the recipe. I did however add frozen peas and some sauted mushrooms. Made me feel a little healthier. Ha! Try this recipe! You won't be disappointed.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
I have been on the search for a good banana bread and I have found it! Just like other reviewers have said: don't over mix the batter. I barely got mine "wet". Some of the flour was still visible - it came out perfectly! Note: The batter is very thick. Don't let that worry you. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Restaurant Style Beef and Green Veg

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
I am giving 4 stars only because I substituted so I can't review the recipe as written. What I made was delicious! The differences were: green beans, sautéed onion, grape seed oil, chili flakes, ginger paste - I think that's all. I marinated the meat with everything and minced garlic and the ginger. What I wish I had done was pull the meat out of the marinade and brown/sautéed then add it back in. I will be using this simple tasty recipe again! Thank you for sharing.
