Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2015
A nice, unexpected blend of flavors. My wife really liked it, but I had trouble liking the vegetable oil. Next time I may try coconut oil, instead.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2015
I must add another 5 star rating! This is a tasty cornbread that is easy to spread butter on without crumbling.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2015
Very much like the Stuffed Cabbage offered by the local Eastern Orthodox church every fall. Much easier to make than I thought it would be. Thank you, BJ!

Sawmill Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2015
Simple! That's how a breakfast gravy should be! I was a bad boy and used all of the cooked off fat to make a huge batch of gravy, which did work out very well because I am a dyed- deep biscuits and gravy fan. The smoothness of this gravy made eating a pleasure- even without "corn mill". Thank you, LLoyd!

Purple Beet, Carrot, and Onion Medley

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2015
I AM NOT a beet eater but this recipe looked like it could mask some of the dirt taste that beets mimic so well. The carrots and onions would be a distraction and, when I studied the recipe, I realized a little sweetener would be in order so I added ¼ cup of local Maple Syrup. The best complement a beet hater (like me) could give this recipe would be I found it palatable. My wife, who I made this for, and is a beet lover, thought the recipe was outstanding! As a beet hater, it would be unfair if I rate this recipe so, based on my wife's earthy tastes, I'll give this recipe the highest rating!

Eat Michigan Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2015
This dressing is above- way above- a five star rating. The only problem I have is the chosen name for it but, being Michigan Blue through and through, I have a huge tolerance for verbal abuse especially when great food is presented to dampen any affects the abuse may have incurred. Thank you, not for the abuse, but for a great recipe.

Pasta Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
A great recipe for a cold fall evening! I found it on the bland side si I did add some seasoning but, just as it is written was satisfactory for my wife.

Greek Feta And Olive Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2014
I couldn't believe how so much flavor resulted with a simple recipe! I used this as a tapenade on a veggie sandwich which improved the normal sandwich considerably. The remainder will be used as a spread for crackers or tortilla chips. Wonderful!

Queso Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
Made this recipe as written and gave it a taste test, which it passed very well. If I had been served this in an upscale restaurant, I would have been glad to have it. It did lack a few things that I like in my salsa con queso. I added a few chopped black olives, a chopped Serrano pepper, a teaspoon of granulated garlic and a tsp of dried minced onion that I crushed before adding.

Soy Sauce Substitute

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
A very good choice to replace soy sauce. I expect to use this frequently and, with a few modifications, I could use it in many non-oriental foods! Thank you for this recipe and the inspirations it brings!

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
I've been making efforts to convert myself from meat and taters to someone eating more balanced. This recipe is one of those vegetable dishes that make me wonder why I wanted just meat and taters! This is very tasty and fairly easy to prepare.

Johnsonville Italian Sausage Hot Tub

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2013
It's been windy, cold and wet and I wanted to try this, but couldn't on the outdoor grill. Instead, I browned Johnsonville Pork Chicken Sausage indoors. I then added all of the ingredients into my pressure cooker and let that do the work for me. In 15 minutes, we had and excellent sausage for our sandwiches.

Cajun Spice Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
This is a welcome mix. My wife finds the commercial Cajun blends far too hot. This blend is the perfect level of heat for her and I like the flavor!

Hearty Minestrone

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
The next time I make this, I will omit the wine, beans and potatoes. We thought they were out of place in this recipe.

Valerio's Pulled Pork Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
This is an excellent bbq! I had only a slight adjustment when I believed the sauce to be too acidic. I added three tbs of commercial bbq sauce and all was well! I have no problem recommending this recipe to any bbq aficionado. Thank you, Valerio!

Creamy Pesto Gnocchi with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
This recipe complimented our homemade pesto and our home made gnocchi very well! We used the Johnsonville Pork Chicken Sausage which was a pleasant change from the more fatty choices.
