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.

Cool Summer Cucumber and Tomato Toss

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
The simplicity of this recipe makes it an easy accompaniment for most recipes. It is easy to add ingredients to suit the entrée. I made this to be with stuffed peppers and I only added scallions.

Savory Butternut Squash Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
This recipe is well received in this house. The only problem I had was the darkening of the outer crust, probably due to the sugar content of the squash. Aside from that, it is a very good recipe for us sugar sensitive people or thiose that just want something a little different for breakfast. I ate two 1/4 cup servings and felt satisfied with the ammount as opposed to eating two same size pancakes that give me an over stuffed feeling. This recipe is five stars for flavor.

Hot Dog Relish

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
Easy to make and a nice blend of flavor. I am taken by the ammount of sugar, though. Next time I wil cut back considerably.

Spinach-Gorganzola Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
This is a simple yet flavorful salad. The next time I will use white balsamic vinegar for the sake of appearance. I wasn't fond of the darkness of the dressing.

The Best Dang Rib Sauce, Period

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2013
I agree that it is nice to have a bbq suce that does not require ketchup. This is a good stand alone sauce but has me wondering what I can do to satisfy whatever it is I think I'm missing.

Smoothie Pops

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
I made this recipe because of it's use of Stevia. The flavor is excellent and prep is not difficult, at all.

Tuna Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
Good flavor and easy to prepare. This had enough variety of flavor that a non-fish eater, as I am, had no trouble eating three of these sandwiches.

Grandmother's Mustard Pickles

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I agree that this recipe needs rinsing however I did not find the pickles to be inedible. I believe this would be a five star recipe if careful rinsing was included in the directions.

Muffin Frittatas

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
This is an excellent recipe. I used exactly the ingredients called for and was very surprised how different the taste was from an omlet with the same ingredients. I did differ in the preparation, though in that I blended the eggs with an immersible blender and used a coated muffin pan that I had sprayed with canola oil. I served this with "Emily's Famous Hash Browns" from this site and a fruit bowl of tropical fruit mix topped with vanilla yogurt. I received five star compliments. 01/13/2003: I have been making these in a large muffin pan. It is the same recipe except for increasing the cooking time to 30-35 minutes. All this does is satisfy my male ego for a hearty portion on my plate. I have found it is very important to allow about 5 minutes of cooling time before removing the frittatas from the pan
