Easy Weeknight Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
I thought this was delicious. I did make a few changes, but nothing drastic. I added tons of garlic powder and onion powder because I do to almost all my dishes. Plus I added like 1/8 a cup of Worcestershire sauce. I wanted a healthier option so I omitted the sour cream and instead added a little milk. I cooked it down to thicken it. Yummy!!

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
My sister had given me a large overstuffed gallon size bag of spinach (they get it in bulk) and I had forgotten about it in my fridge for about a week. I decided I would rather cook something with it and this recipe kept calling to me, so I decided to try it. I found it rather addicting and I ate 2 slices right out of the oven. However, I did make a few changes based upon my likes and others reviews. I added a ton of garlic to the onions as I was cooking it. I also added a can of sliced mushrooms and wilted my spinach in the mixture (instead of in a seperate pot). I also salted and peppered my mixture in the pan on top of the salt for the recipe. I also only added 1/3 cup butter instead of half a cup (only because I already had a stick in use). Other than that, it was simple and delicious!

Juicy Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
This is a pretty good marinade for grilling. I used A1 for the steak sauce and garlic powder instead of garlic salt (only because I love a lot of garlic and not a lot of salt). Also, I used T-Bone steaks because they were on sale at my local supermarket. Plus the root beer gave it a sweet taste in my opinion. Yummy. I will definately be using this recipe again.

Chef John's Grilled Jerk Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2012
Delicious!! I made this in the slow cooker and it came out so tender and yummy!! The only thing different I did was omit the habañero pepper. Those are way too spicy for us. Perfect combo of sweet and spice. Thank you for the new recipe!!

Easy Weeknight Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This was SUPER delicious!! The only thing I did different was add extra garlic (powder form), onion powder, and Italian seasoning. I also added milk in leiu of the cream and just let it cook down to thicken up. Also, I mixed in shredded mozerella at the very end. Super yummy!! Best Alfredo on here yet!!

Lola's Horchata

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I LOVE Horchata, but I had never made it before. I was really excited to come across this recipe! Upon the suggestion of other reviewers, I used 2 cinnamon sticks instead of the ground cinnamon. I love the cinnamon flavor and this adds so much to it. Also, I let mine soak overnight in the fridge instead of a couple of hours before I strained it. Soooooo worth it, because it was soooo good. Needless to say, I did not realize making it from scratch was so easy. I will be making this again.

French Orange Poached Pears (Poire Avec Orange)

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
This was absolutely delicious. I do not know why, but this recipe called to me to be poured over vanilla ice cream a la banana foster. I am so glad that I did. Although I did not change the recipe any, I did use an apple corer to core the pears (easier in my opinion). This also sliced them. One thing I would recommend though is use either less sugar or unsweetened orange juice. Otherwise it will be very sweet. All in all, a wonderful treat.

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
I do believe these were really good, once I added a few changes of course. I felt that these would do better as a crock pot recipe. I was right! Instead of chicken I did a beef roast (as I had one in the freezer and I did not feel like deboning a chicken). I sprinkled salt, pepper, tons of garlic powder, onion powder, and instead of the chili powder I did smoked paprika all over my roast. I literally rubbed the roast in the seasonings. Then I made the sauce according to the recipe and let it cook 8 hours on low. I believe I only added a little bit more salt and it was delish! For me if something seems "plain" or "missing something" it is usually lacking salt, plain and simple. As for garlic and onion, I ALWAYS add that to all my recipes, just because I think all food can use that extra flavor. Also, I should add that while these were delicious on their own, adding the coleslaw brought the flavors to a whole other level. I do believe I will make this again and try some different experiments for some more awesome flavors.

Little Ann's Peach and Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
OMG, the flavor of this pie is out of this world. I told my husband that it was like the sky opened up and angels brought it down to earth. YES, it was THAT good. The only changes I made were adding two dashes of cinnamon and substituting the tapioca for flour, as I didn't have any tapioca on hand. Also, my peaches were very juicy so next time I'll add more flour so it won't come out so runny. My fault though, no reflection on the recipe. The only thing thing bad I could say about this pie is that I haven't made it sooner. Thank you.

Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
I always make my pancakes from scratch and then freeze the leftovers for quick and easy weekday mornings. This recipe is perfect for that! First I triple the recipe, and then add about 2 teaspoons of vanilla. You can also change it up by adding a dash or two of cinnamon, or you can fold in some chocolate chips, blueberries, bananas, etc. for a delicious twist!

Spicy Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Ok, so I read the other reviews and can see where they might have not liked this dish, but this is an excellent dish to tweak and make amazing. For starters I cut back on some ingredients. I omitted the cayenne, cut the chunky peanut butter to 1 cup creamy, and cut the chili sauce to only 1 tablespoon. In place of the 2nd cup of peanut butter, I added 1/2 cup of peanuts (this will cut back on the peanut butter flavor and give it a little peanut crunch). I also changed the soy sauce to ¼ cup and added a lot of garlic and onion powder to the sauce. I then added 1 tablespoon of fish sauce. In lieu of the 3 ½ cups water, I added 2 cups of chicken broth. I do not like chow mien noodles, so I kept those out all together. With these changes you will have a creamy (not too thick) sauce with an amazing flavor. Add directly and simmer it with the cooked chicken for about 5 to 10 minutes before tossing with the noodles. Right at serving, I highly suggest chopping up clean fresh cilantro and green onions and topping each plate. The cilantro gives it that extra Thai flavor. With these changes I swear it was very similar to my favorite Pei Wei Thai chicken dish.

Smoky Sausage Penne

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
I thought this was a pretty good recipe. However, it does come out kind of bland and lacking in seasoning. For me though, this is an extremely easy fix. I seasoned mine with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and some of my home made Italian seasoning (crushed sun dried tomatoes, basil, oregano, dried garlic, etc). I didn't have any smoked cheese, so I added a little bit of smoked paprika also. Still, this dish was really good and my family loved it. I suggest to anyone to experiment with it some more and make it their own.

Garlic Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
Delicious. That is all I can say. I found it great with garlic powder, and also delicious with fresh garlic. I ended up wrapping mine in foil and then baking it in the oven at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes, but it came out so delicious, that I will be making it that way over and over again!

Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
This stuffing was excellent! I always love turkey and stuffing, so I am always willing to try new recipes. I marinaded the turkey in my own little marinade, but the stuffing complemented it perfectly. We love "Bobbie" sandwiches, so we made ours into Thanksgiving sandwiches with cranberry sauce and a little bit of mayo. Yum!! Thank you!!

Country Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
This is a pretty decent white bread recipe. What I did to make the recipe easier was use my bread machine to prepare the dough. I put all of my ingredients (only difference was I used 4 cups of flour instead of 5) and set it to dough setting. When the batter was done, I braided it and set it to rise in two seperate loaf pans. I also found that 30 minutes was enough cooking time in my eletric oven. Otherwise it would have over cooked. It came out pretty good and made two loafs. Now I have one to share with a friend! I would recommend eating with fresh butter or homemade jam.

Udon Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
This was actually pretty good. I did not have fresh ginger, so I substituted powdered ginger instead. I also used minced garlic (out of a jar) for a quicker recipe. This was quick, yummy, and delicious. The only thing I will do different next time is use less soy sauce. It came out kind of salty. Only my opinion though. Thanks! :)

Chicken with Chipotle

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I actually learned this recipe while living in Mexico years ago. I change things up a bit by adding garlic and onion though. If you have picky eaters like me though, you can use garlic powder and onion powder so there is no texture to it or blend the onions and garlic into with the sauce in the blender. I also do not add chicken bouillion but I boil my chicken on the stove and use the stock from that. Also, do not forget the salt, or it will be lacking in flavor. All in all, I am extremely happy to see this recipe on her, and I am glad I found it! I hadn't made this in years and I forgot how delicious it was. Thanks!

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I have always loved stuffed bell peppers, and when I was given a large box of produce I jumped at the chance to make them (much to the distain of my poor hubby, lol). I did make my own changes (I did not read the other's reviews beforehand, but noticed a lot of similarities). First off, I never have canned tomato soup on hand. So instead I used 2 8oz cans of tomato sauce. I poured it into a bowl and added a generous amount of garlic powder, salt, pepper, onion powder, basil, and Italian seasoning. I mixed it well and it tasted delicious as my "tomato soup". Then, instead of the canned chopped tomatoes (I had none on hand), I added 2 8oz canned to the browning ground beef. So in my pot was browning ground beef and onions, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, rice, and maybe 3 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce. I did not have any chedder cheese, so I shredded a block of mozzarella cheese instead-which turned out great! After I baked everything in the oven, it was DELICIOUS! My husband was even shocked that his childhood dinner nightmare was so tasty. I say that this recipe is well worth the 5 stars. :) I always add extra seasonings to everything.

Cornflake Waffles with Honey Sauce

These were very good. The whole family loved them. We made them for brinner (breakfast for dinner) and they were excellent. I did not make the sauce though. Next time I will for sure.
