Sunday Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
This came out pretty good, my wife and father in law liked it a lot. I added a bit of cayenne, and left out the dill weed since I didn't have any. I was asked to make it again next weekend.

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!

Scalloped Cheese Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
This is a pretty good recipe. I made it per instructions and I reduced the servings to 4 instead of 12. I think it may need a little milk to up the creaminess factor, but that's the way we like it.

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.

Rumaki

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
The only changes I made was to nuke the bacon 1 minute first, and then I baked at 400 for 20 minutes, turning them once at 10 minutes. They are great! Thanks, Dot.

Busy Day Barbeque Brisket

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Sweet Lord, this is hands down the best brisket to ever come from anyplace other than a full up pit. Where's that sixth star??? I did not deviate from the recipe. My brisket came from the meat dept at Albertsons, was 3.85 lbs with about 1/4 inch of fat on top, which I left intact, and put that side up in the crock after prepping the meat. I did high temp on the crock for an hour, and went to low. I started at 8 am this morning to 3:25 today, and it's ready to go. Thanks so much, Shannon!

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.

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.

Mmmm Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Pretty good salsa. Had it with smoked salmon today. I would cut back on the olive oil a bit to 1 tablespoon.

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.

Cereal Bowl Egg and Cheese Breakfast Burrito

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Followed the directions as stated. My review is the same as TxCin. The egg took so long to set that the tortilla turned crisp and hard around the bowl and was soft on the bottom. Could eat about a 1/3 of it.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
My modifications. Day before cooking, cut 2 baby back slabs into halfs. Rubbed them with a dry rub of 1/2 cup Gebhardt's chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp ground pepper. Coated the rubbed halfs with yellow prepared mustard. Wrapped each half in foil and refrigerated for 12 hours. Heated the oven to 375, put the foil pack ribs on a lined cookie sheet in the oven for 30 min. Dropped the temp to 255, left the ribs for 3 hours. They were a bit too loose, would cut back time to 2.5 hours. Made a hot direct heat grill, removed the ribs from the foil, and placed them curve side down on the grill. Used one cup of Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce on each slab and cooked 5 min. Flipped them, used one more cup of JDs BBQ sauce, cooked 5 more minutes. Took them off the grill, let'em set under foil ten minutes while I plated up the sides. Very, very good. I never BBQ in the oven, until now. Will do it again.

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.

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.

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.

Chili Barbecue Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
Very, very good. I had six center cut chops, the typical kind from the supermarket. I increased the marinate to 3/4 cup each dressing and BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's), and kept the chili powder at the recipe level. I put the chops and all but 1/2 cup of the marinate in a plastic bag, and refrigerated them for about 6 hours, turning them over 3 times. I used a wok to brown and finish them. Browning was about 4 minutes per side. I stacked them all in the wok after browning, and poured on the extra marinate. It wasn't quite enough, so I make another 3/4 cup, but left out the chili powder this go-round. I let it simmer about 30 minutes. They weren't dry at all, and the sauce was exceptional. Definitely a keeper.

Sarge's EZ Pulled Pork BBQ

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
True to his word, Sarge's bbq pork is great. I had a 5 lb boneless shoulder. Seasoned it with seasoning salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. I upped the coffee to 1 cup, which I added to one cup of beef broth. I put it in the cooker at 8:30am, it's now 3:30 pm, pulled, and back into the crock with 1/2 bottle of Ray's with a cup of the drippings. My wife loves it! Thanks, Sarge.

Spaghetti Skillet

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
Easy one skillet dinner. Didn't deviate from the recipe. Taste is ok. Seemed to be missing something, garlic, onion, basil would be nice. Be sure to use a big skillet, it filled my 12" skillet to the edges. Occasionally stir the mixture during simmering. I needed about 5 extra minutes, for about 20 in total, for the spaghetti to go al dente. The celery was still crunchy, needed maybe 5 more minutes, but I didn't want the spaghetti to would overcook. I might make it again but with ingredient tweaks.
