Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
I got 1 1/2 inch thick tenderloins from the butcher block. Then I made the recipe exactly per instruction. My family is raving about it.

Quick and Easy Chicken and Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
I've done a bunch of recipes from allrecipes over several years, this one is hands down the best. My wife said it was like a pro dish from Macaroni's Grill. The only thing I did different was adding a bit of onion powder to the chicken, and then adding a 4 oz of tomato sauce to the chicken mixture as it simmered. Thanks for a great dish, Tiffany!

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
This is the definition of easy cooking. It's quicker and more green (energy-wise) than boiling. Plus, the taste is better.

Dumplings done right! Way better than canned biscuits.

Hamburger Mac Skillet

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
I upped the servings to 4 using the auto convert feature here. I found it bland. Like another reviewer, I added chile powder, about a tablespoon. I also added ground cumin, about a teaspoon, and it really helped. Topped it with cheese, so it's kind of like chili with macaroni at this point. My wife and F-I-L liked it.

Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
It took 2 1/2 slices of bread to cover the 8x8 dish. I added an extra egg to bring the total to 4 eggs. I used a pound of sausage, and followed another reviewer's advice and rinsed the sausage after browning it. I used 1 cup of cream instead of milk. I let it set about 15 minutes before serving. My wife loved it. The bread wasn't soggy. 4 stars since I modified the recipes. Will make it again.

Spareribs and Kraut

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I doubled the time for the ribs and the kraut. The ribs were cooked ok, but not falling off the bone tender. Agree with an earlier reviewer, an hour for the ribs and three hours for everything combined. Also, I added 1/4 of a chopped onion to the sauerkraut. It was too crunchy and prominent at the end. Pre-cooking is needed.

Tex-Mex Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
This is pretty good - I'm having it on tortilla chips right now. It needed a bit of tweaking: 1/2 tsp salt and pepper each, and I added another 1/4 cup of sour cream to make it a little more spreadable. I used fat free sour cream for a healthier version.

Kim's Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
Great basic recipe. To make it healthier, I used fat free mayo, cut back to 1/2 cup, and 1/4 cup of fat free plain yogurt.

Mandarin Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I cut back a bit on the oil, and didn't add chicken, to get the fat content down some. Does take a while to cut up the veggies. Overall, a pretty good salad.

Sausage Sauerkraut Supper

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
My only changes were using brats, which I pre-cooked, and used a bottle of Natural Light beer in lieu of the stock. Oh, and I layered it, vegs then kraut, then brats and repeat. My wife went for seconds, and the house company snarfed up the rest.

Cowboy Skillet Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
Quick and pretty good. Used pinto beans, 1/3 cup ketchup, 2 cloves chopped garlic, half can of mexi-corn, and one chopped chipotle pepper in adobe. Didn't have red peppers. I meant to add cheese before applying the cornbread but forgot. It was still good. Next time tryin' cheese . . .

Cheese Steak Subs

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
I wasn't going for a cheesesteak. I did the pepper, onion, and a couple of sliced mushrooms and jalapenoes, all sauteed in 2 tbsp of bacon grease. I also used provolone. It was really simple. The family thought it was great.

Chicken Cacciatore Skillet

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
I was searching for something quick after a long day at work. This was just right. I left out the green pepper (didn't have one), and used spaghetti instead of rice. This gets into the rotation.

Shrimp with Pasta, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Artichokes and Basil Bacon Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
This was very good and very easy. Made it for a Wednesday night dinner for my wife and her Dad. They loved it. I used angel hair pasta and non-oil packed dried tomatoes as it's what I had on hand. Will definitely do this again.

Hamburger Supper

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Pretty good - my wife really liked it. I did this straight from the recipe; I think next time, I'll drop the poultry seasoning and go with minced garlic, a bit of cayenne, and a splash of worchester sauce. Good basic low carb recipe.
