Spoiled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Would rate higher, but made a change or two. Did't have cider vinegar so subbed with half & half rice & Balsamic vinegars. Also found it to be a little salty, so toned it down a bit by adding some Tony Romas Carolina Honeys to it. Wife said it came out "Quite tasty". Translation "It's a KEEPER"

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
Had this last night for dinner along with Roasted Balsamic Vegetables from this site. Fantastic. and the sauce went very well with the veggies also. The only change I made was to coat the chops with the coating early and place in the frig. for four hours to absorb the flavors. Will most certainly be makeing these again. Wife says they are keepers.

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Made this last night. Downsized to 3 servings and followed the recipe exactly except baked the potatoes in the oven rather than the microwave. Also forgot to get Bacon bits at the store, so didnot add those. Came out extreemely thick so had to add additional milk. Wife said it was 'alright' but I did not like it at all. Will definitly not be makeing it again.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Can't give it the real worth of five stars, because I made too many changes. First I eliminated the brown Sugar as recommended by some others, then I used Thighs rather then Breasts as we prefer dark meat to white meat, added 1 tsp. Poultry Seasoning,1/2 tsp. ground Sage,1/2 cup diced Onion/Celery mix,1 tsp. Mesquite Liquid Smoke, and 2 tsp. minced Garlic. Cooked for 3.5 hours on high. Paired this up with 'Bush's' Grilling Barbecue Beans and Tomato and Avocado Salad from this site. WONDERFUL. Wife absolutely loved it. Definitaly a KEEPER.

Darn Good Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Made this yesterday, with some modification, and was informed that it is a keeper. First mod. was I added 1/2 lb. of 'hot'Italian sausage (bulk, not link) to the ground beef. Next cut the chili powder down to 1 tsp. and added 1 tsp. of Cumin, in place of the pasta sauce I used an 8-oz. can of tomato sauce. And instead of Kidney beans (we don't like them) i used 2 cans of Bush's Pinto Beans. I browned the beef and sausage together,then sauteed the onion and garlic together, put all the ingredients into the slow cooker and cooked on high for 4 hours. Will definately be makeing this again.

Amish Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Can't give it 5 stars because of the changes I used, but overall a very good recipe. Also I think it needs a little less noodles. For the meat mixture, after browning, I added some chopped onion. Drained the liguid, added the tomato soup plus a drained 10-3/4 oz. can of petite diced tomatoes with peppers and onions and an 8 oz. can of tomato juice, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon onion powder. Also as some others used cream of potato soup and 8 oz. of sour cream in the noodles. Overall came out pretty good and will be making again.

Avocado and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
Have made this several times, but cut it down to one large tomato and one avacado for just the two of us. For the onion I use a small red onion cut in half circumferencialy then julienned and about 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegarette dressing. Absolutely fantastic. Wife loves it. She is a salad type person and wants this one often.

Antipasto Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Wife loves antipasto, and we have been buying it at the deli counter at the market, but they have decided to disontinue it from their offerings. So I went hunting and found this recipe. Decided to try it with a couple of changes. Added 6-oz. of pepperoni juliennedand a 10-oz. jar of peminto stuffed Olives halved lengthwise. Don't use lettuce with it. Wife says it's better than what we were getting at the market. IT HAS TO BE A KEEPER if I want to stay in our happy home.

Iowa Pork Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Excellent. made some minor changes. The markets steaks were too thin, so we subbed with nice inch and a quarter thick boneless pork chops. Used a mixture of Olive oil and Sesame oil rather than vegetable oil. Julianed a medium red onion rather than chopping. Used a mixture of Balsamic vinegar and Sherry in place of the water. Used button mushrooms rather than sliced (So the wife could pick them out as she can't eat them but likes the flavor of them), didn't have any onion soup mix so used a packet of pork flavored Ramen powder mix. Also after browning the chops, Moved them into a crockpot. Sauted the onion in the same oil mixture, then transferred them to thetop of the chops, added the shrooms and the sauce mixture and cooked on high for six and a half hours. Came out extremely moist and fork tender. And the gravy was absolutely perfect. Paired with the Lemon-Butter Red Potatoes from this site. If there was ever a 10 star rateing, this would get it.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
Started by downsizeing to 4 servings. Then used O'Brian Potatoes and Cream of Potatoe Soup, and instead of raw onion, used 3 teaspoons of dried onions. For the topping I used crushed Ritz Crackers sauteed in the butter. It all came out great and the wife loved it with our dinner of meatloaf slices topped with the Provincial Tomatoes (from this site) and the Creamy Pea Salad (also from this site). This is also a definite keeper

Provincial Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
Made this recipe the first time to go with pork chops for dinner, and was realy pleased with it. Made them the next time to go with the Marinated Grilled Shrimp recipe from this site, for a ladies group card party, and they just could not get enough. Every one raved about them. The secret is to make sure you get good solid tomatoes, not over ripe ones. The only way I could find grated Asiago cheese was in a pre-packaged mixture of Asiago, Romano and Parmesan. Worked very well.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
Made this useing frozen shrimp. Made only one change as posted by another reviewer. I used Balsamic rather than red wine vinegar. Marinated in the frig. over night, and cooked under the broiler as I don't have a grill. Came out great, everyone raved about the flavor and couln't seem to get enough. Served with Provincial Tomatoes (from this site), my Cinnamon Carrots, and pasta salad. Try them, you won't be disapointed.

Home-Style Brown Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Made this for dinner last night as an accompanyment to my main dish of Calves' Liver with Sherry ( another great recipe from this site). I was trying to get a brown rice dish for this main coarse and the 'pilaf' caught my eye. Normally I don't use rice as my wife is not a rice fan, but I had made another pilaf a while back ( From Tase of Home )that she really liked, so tried this one (with some changes as others had suggested). I used a 14 oz. can of beef broth and a 10.5 oz. can of Cambells French Onion Soup instead of the water, and extra virgin olive oil instead of butter. I left out the carrots, salt, mushrooms ( wife doesn't like them) and the chickpeas. I added 2 roasted red peppers ( for color )cut up into 3/4" pieces for the mushrooms and used a small can of corn in place of the chickpeas. also did not use soy sauce. Other than that I followed the cooking time exactly, and the rice came out perfect. Wife said it was really good, so you get 5 stars. And it went very well with the Liver dish. It is another keeper.
