Steamed Cabbage with Butter

Steamed Cabbage with Butter

As stated, this is not 100% steamed. Before serving, I drained the cabbage in a colander to get rid of the cooking liquid. The flavor was great. 3/18/2014
Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

This was very, very good. My corned beef piece was 2 lbs, but I followed the recipe as written (and included the spice packet that came with the meat). I didn't cook the cabbage with it as my family won't eat cabbage. I just cooked it separately for myself. — SunnyFLErin 3/18/2014
Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Adding the OJ as suggested by many reviewers helped. Otherwise, it was way oversalted. I did brown the chicken on both sides in multiple batches to get it a bit more 'fried' before adding the sauce. We didn't need more sauce; but there was no sauce left in the pan after the chicken was served. — AnnetteKitchen 2/25/2014
Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff

We really liked this. Next time, I'll add more mushrooms. I didn't have sherry or cognac, but it was yummy without it. — sgrishka 2/25/2014
Bobby Flay's Pizza Dough

Bobby Flay's Pizza Dough

We tried a couple of different dough recipes and this was our fave. — sbjonas 2/12/2014
Frosted Molasses Creams

Frosted Molasses Creams

These are VERY good. I doubled the recipe and ended up making the cookies a bit bigger; rolling them into a ball and then flattening them with the back of a wooden spoon. — sgrishka 12/24/2013
Steve's Mushroom, Spinach and Ground Turkey Lasagna

Steve's Mushroom, Spinach and Ground Turkey Lasagna

Next time, I wont use fat free ricotta, which I felt made the dish a bit dry. Also, I won't drain the tomatoes before adding them to the meat sauce. However, it was a big hit with my family and friends and I know I'll be making it again. — stevemur 11/19/2013
Beef- Mongolian Beef

Beef- Mongolian Beef

It was just ok. Fairly bland for my family. Probably won't make again unless I step up the heat significantly. — katehandel 10/23/2013
Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

This was really tasty. I made it for six servings and used 4t Cajun seasoning instead of the 6 the increased ingredient list called for; only b/c we had a guest with the palette of a child. :) There was only a little left over and I had those mixed w/green peas for lunch the next day. A keeper. — Firebyrd 7/4/2013
Quinoa, Broccoli, & Cheese Casserole

Quinoa, Broccoli, & Cheese Casserole

I liked it; tho my family wasn't crazy about it. I'll try it again without the broccoli (maybe use carrots) and I think they will be fine with it. — burnsma55817 5/5/2013
Irish Style Cottage Pie

Irish Style Cottage Pie

Really good. I used a bit more Guinness simply b/c we like it. Next time I will add peas for color. — rmcmullan 2/4/2013
Muffi's Stuffed Pasta Shells

Muffi's Stuffed Pasta Shells

Pretty good. Next time, I will add mozzarella cheese on top...my kids like a cheesier pasta dish. — MissMuffi 2/4/2013
Aunt Evelyn's Meatloaf

Aunt Evelyn's Meatloaf

This was really good; I even doubled the recipe and it turned out delicious. Don't forget the parchment paper-clean up was rough without it! — sgrishka 1/6/2013
Beef Stew

Beef Stew

This was a winner. Took hardly anytime to put together and came out great. — Kowgirl777 11/29/2012
Oven-Baked Rice

Oven-Baked Rice

I've made this 3 times now and the rice comes out perfect every time. Remember to crimp the foil tightly around the pan before baking and use a clean dish towel to cover the rice once it comes out of the oven. — Thekidsmom1224 10/8/2012
World's Best Macaroni and Cheese

World's Best Macaroni and Cheese

Very rich, very yummy. Hubby bought smoked gruyere instead of regular, but it turned out fine. — brentnhunter 9/19/2012
Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

One of my friends recommended this to me and my kids LOVED it. The taste is all cinnamon rolls, but the added crunchy texture of a freshly made waffle made this a true keeper. — Thekidsmom1224 9/9/2012
Italian Pesto Sauce

Italian Pesto Sauce

Looks like the salt has been corrected to 1 teaspoon ( tho I used about 1/2 that). Otherwise, I made it as listed here and it turned out great. It does thicken in the fridge (if u have leftovers), so I had to remind my family that a little goes a long way once it's warmed on pasta. 8/30/2012
Crispy Kale

Crispy Kale

Excellent! We had to cook in batches, but it was worth it. They don't hold well, so make as many as u can eat at one sitting. — ellie36 8/18/2012

Really, really good..... — TheKitchenWitch 8/18/2012
