Stir-Fried Steak and Veggies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
Wow this was so easy and so good! Even my non-veggie eating child went back for seconds and even thirds. I went looking for a recipe to stretch a small piece of marked down sirloin, and ended up with a gourmet meal. Thanks!

Quick Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Everyone in my family loved this and went back for seconds, quite a rarity due the picky tendencies. I put the zucchini in last and cooked just long enough to maintain the shape. My family, does not like overcooked zucchini!

Ham and Bean Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
I loved this soup. It was SUper easy. I did double the amount of seasoning and added a couple of extra carrots. I also cooked it in the crockpot for about 6 hours. It was perfect for a chilly day and even better the next day.

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Wonderful, easy recipe that makes a lot of food. Provides a lot of flavor without a lot of time. Also, once the initial spice purchase is made, it is a very economical meal. I have made it twice now. I didn't have turmeric the first time around, it's definitely better with it, but not bad without it either. I did throw in 1/2 diced onion to saute along with the meat. Last night, I served it with fresh pita bread and greek style yogurt as an accompaniment. Definitely a keeper.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I loved this recipe! It was especially helpful that I was able throw it together and have it on the table in about 45minutes tops. I believe some had commented about a vinegery taste; Balsamic needs to be cooked long enough to cook off the vinegar part but leaves behind the rich flavor that you find in top restaurants.

Scott's Savory BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
My very hard to please husband, LOVED this sauce. I cut the recipe in half and used Splenda brown sugar blend to cut back on calories a bit. Personally, I would add just a tad less vinegar, but that's probably what hubby liked about it. A very nice mix of sweet and sour.

Walnut Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Delicious and easy! I added about 1 tsp chopped fresh ginger to soy sauce in the beginning. We also had hot sauce on the side for individual preferences. The men in my family are kind of picky but all three of them ate this and enjoyed it.

Chicken Breasts with Lime Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
excellent! Super easy and fast. I used one less T butter than what was called for and I forgot to pound the chicken breast first so I needed to cook a bit longer. It was still delicious and I think I'll double the recipe next time.

Chicken Pasta - Shannon Style

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
This was excellent! I did make some, minor changes. We are usually trying to cut back on carbs and fat thus I wanted to avoid the breaded coating and frying. I used boneless chicken breasts that had been marinating two days in Good Season's Italian salad dressing mix. I cut in small pieces and sauteed in a little olive oil until cooked through. I also used a lower carb, high protein pasta, Barilla. They didn't have bow ties so I used rotini. We all loved this and though I had increased the amount served to 8 for my family of 5 and a guest, there wasn't a bit left.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
I had panko crumbs to use up instead of crackers. Also, I was out of brown sugar so used a little turbinado sugar with a drizzle of molasses. My family was in need of some comfort food, one kid had actually asked for meatloaf. This recipe was the best I've tried.

Okra, Corn and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I really liked this recipe. It was a perfect to use up some okra and also another good use for file powder, which is not used in that many recipes and so hard to find in my town I had to get some in New Orleans. I can tell the file powder is really what made it special though, so try not to skip this.

Grilled Caribbean Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I would say be absolutely sure you have time to marinade this for a lengthy period of time as it was fairly bland. BUT... I also didn't have fresh oregano or ginger on hand; I used a generous amt of ginger powder and about the same amt of dried oregano as called for fresh. It did have a really nice mild flavor and was very moist as cooked on my George Forman grill. I served it with black beans and rice and Okra, Corn and Tomatoes (by TXgirl)from this site. Great home-cooked meal!

Flat Iron Steak with Three Pepper Rub

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
I doubled the recipe and made it twice over a couple of weeks. I rubbed it into the meat early in the day and let kept it in the fridge several hours before cooking. The only problem was that I should have cooked more so my family wouldn't fight over the last bits of meat. What an easy way to dress up an inexpensive cut of meat.

Tarragon-Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
This was so delicious! I was a little worried because I'm usually not crazy about tarragon. I only made it because I had some quick cook barley on hand that I wanted to use up. Wow! the flavors mingled beautifully without any overpowering flavor of tarragon that I have disliked in the past.

White Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
This was excellent and such a change of pace for the Thanksgiving left-over turkey. I had "Fire and Ice" white wine with jalepeno on hand. Yummy! I forgot to add the lime juice but it was awesome just the same.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I rate it 5 stars for its ease of preparation as much as its taste. Also, any "vegetable" dish that has my teenage son and his friends asking for more is an automatic FIVE!
