"I'm an experienced home chef and I loved this recipe. I'm also a butter and cream sort of guy and this is a great, healthy alternative to a cream sauce. I too do not understand the 1 and 2 star ratings and comments that this is bland. It's very tasty.
I read most of the other comments and started with the recipe as written except used the oil fro"
Reviewed Potato Gratin "Boome-style"
"Who doesn't like cheesy potatoes.... That said, this recipe is pretty basic. I added 1/2 tsp each of onion powder and garlic powder for more flavor. Also added salt to taste. I agree with other reviewers that the 1 cup of cream is too much and makes the dish soupy. I'd suggest you cut that back to 1/2 cup. I increased the recipe by half but stayed"
Reviewed Salmon Baked in Foil
"We really enjoyed this tonight. I read the reviews and made the following adjustments. I added 3 cloves of garlic, 2T capers and some red pepper flakes to the tomato mixture. I salt and peppered both the salmon and the tomato mixture. I reduced the cooking temp to 375 and cooked for 22 minutes. Served over rice with steamed snow peas. Perfect. tas"
"Just had these for the first time this morning and they were great. They were very fluffy and tasty. I used whole milk, a rounded tablespoon of sugar and 2T of melted butter vs oil. Perfect! I, too, won't be buying pancake mix anymore. Prep time was less than 5 minutes. "

Doubled the chicken stock because several people indicated the soup was more like chili w/o increasing the amount of stoc"

"I'm an experienced cook and this recipe took me about 50 minutes to prepare. And, I wish the recipes would include a time for cleanup in addition to prep/cook times. MAN..... My kitchen was a mess with lots of pots and utensils to wash.
The above said, I agree that this was a lot like hamburger helper. It tasted fine but not worth the effort. I t"
Reviewed Salmon Cakes
"We really enjoyed this recipe. The salmon cakes had an almost creamy texture but with a nice brown crunchy outside. I read several reviews before making these and I agree you can cut back on the 1/2 cup mayo that is specified in the recipe to about 1/4 to 1/3 cup. I used panko bread crumbs for the crunchy outside. I also refrigerated the mix befor"
Reviewed Dad's Meatloaf with Tomato Relish
"While we really enjoyed this meatloaf I challenge anyone to do the prep in 20 minutes as indicated. Including the time spent making the tomato relish I spent about an hour total. Just saying..... And judging from all of the favorable reviews, I must be the only one who thought the relish tasted way too much like ketchup. Not surprising since it ha"
Cooking is my hobby and I'm self taught. I lived in Louisiana for approx. 7 years (many years ago) and learned to love/cook many great cajun recipes. My preference is Southern dishes but I cook more contemporary recipes for my more weight conscious friends.
