Cabbage and Smoked Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
Great recipe! Just made a few changes by adding 3 cans of low sodium chicken broth instead of water (leaving out the boullion cubes); skipped the tomato sauce but added the crushed tomatoes; skipped the rice (can add potato cubes during the last half hour of cooking.... for the consistency of a "stoup".... A meal in itself with 'hard' bread.) Very tasty!

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Great recipe! I'm not a fan of cornbread, but this recipe looked tempting. Also a good recipe for using different veggies. I skipped the zucchini and used frozen broccoli and cauliflower (2 cups cut up into smaller pieces) and about 1/2 cup frozen spinach. I did saute 1/2 chopped vidalia onion with 1/2 chopped green pepper. Mixed the cornbread according to the boxed directions and added all the other ingredients (allowing the onion and green pepper to cool and veggies to defrost before adding). Used 1/2 cheddar cheese and 1/2 colby jack. Kept about 1/3 of the cheese for the top during last 15 minutes of baking. I used my convection oven and baked at 300 degrees for one hour. Came out Perfect! Even ate some 'cold' in the morning and thought it taste just as good or even better 'cold'! Might try adding some ham or Polish kielbasi next time. GREAT recipe as posted and for hiding those 'veggies' from the kids (and the man who doesn't like that 'green' stuff)!

Tangy Sliced Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
With a few changes, I tried this as a glaze for a pork butt. Wow -- DELICIOUSSS! Caramelized onions, and 2 cloves garlic in the butter. Added rest of ingredients using only 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire, 2 tsp. sugar, 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar instead of lemon juice. Added about 1/4 cup chicken broth at the end. Going to try this on top of my meatloaf to give it some PIZZAZ!!!

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This recipe probably deserves 5 stars but since I tweaked it, I had to give it 4 stars. I eliminated the boullion cubes, flour and water. I sauteed the cubed potatoes with the onions, celery, carrots and added sliced white mushrooms (though I would have preferred baby portabellas). I added green beans that were left over from the day before. Added a whole can of cream of mushroom soup with 1/2 can of milk and the diced turkey to the pan of sauteed veggies. I would use less oregano the next time as I'm not too fond of it. I used Pillsbury 'ready-made' pie dough. Browned the bottom pie dough for 15 minutes before adding all the ingredients. One pan for cooking and 'ready-made' dough made this dinner 'easy as pie' and delicious!!!!

Vegetable Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
After a little tweaking to suit the family's taste, it was outstanding.. The dressing is the key!! I left out the ham for my vegetarian daughter and added chopped celery, green and yellow peppers and black olives. To the dressing, I just added more mayo, used balsamic vinegar instead red wine vinegar and added about a teaspoon of sugar. This will always be made for my family get togethers!! Pasta and veggies could be changed, but the dressing is what really makes it scrumptious!!

Pork Chops and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
Made a few adjustments -- used boneless (1 to 1 1/2 inch thick) country ribs; used packaged barrel cured sauerkraut (drained); added 1/2 to 3/4 cup chicken broth; used about 4T brown sugar instead of apple or apple juice. After browning meat, removed from pan and sauteed onions and sauerkraut; added broth and stirred to get all the "good stuff" from bottom of pan; added rest of ingredients and simmered on LOW for 1 1/2 hour (or until pork very tender). Added potatoes and continued cooking until potatoes were tender. WOW! Had for dinner, lunch and dinner the next day! Might be great in a slow cooker also!
