Penne Pasta with Cannellini Beans and Escarole

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Loved this and so did my (hard-to-please) husband. I used only a half-pound of (whole wheat) penne, and I added: one sliced onion, sauteed; two cups of baby spinach; 1/3 cup juice from pepperoncini peppers; a little sea salt and pepper; and a small bit of leftover diced ham. A sprinkle of grated romano cheese made it perfect.

Apricot Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This is delicious with chicken, too, bake at 350 one hour, covered, and another 30 minutes, uncovered. Next time I will try with the from-scratch thousand island dressing from allrecipes.com. Yum.

Delicious Salmon Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
This was very, very good. I was looking for something to make with a can of salmon and pasta and this was perfect. I didn't have broccoli so I sautéed a zucchini instead; I also added a chopped tomato and half a can of chick peas and a bit of chopped onion. I couldn't believe that a cup of olive oil wouldn't be too much so I only used a half but I think next time I will try a cup. This made a huge bowl of pasta salad and the dressing was readily absorbed. It was still good though with half the oil so suit yourself. Nice with a good grated cheese on top. This is a very flexible recipe. Thanks!

Oatmeal and Wheat Flour Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Wow. These are excellent. I made half the recipe and got 15 small/medium pancakes. I only had regular oatmeal so I ground it (3/4 C of oats) into flour in the food processor. I replaced the oil with applesauce and for the liquid, I used 1/2 C kefir and 1/2 C low fat milk. I also added a 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. I made half the batch with fresh blueberries and half with mini chocolate chips. Next time, I'll make the whole recipe and freeze the leftovers.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Very good - you have to try it to believe it. I preheated the oven at 500 for half an hour. I had a 3-pound roast and cooked it at 500 for 20 minutes (forgetting to lower the temp to 475), and then turned off the oven and let it sit for 2-1/2 hours. I used garlic salt, pepper, and thyme as a rub before cooking. Result: nice flavors and a tender roast done to perfection (a bit pink in the center).

Grilled or Fried Skirt Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Fantastic flavor as written. (Only marinated for an hour.) Don't forget to peel away the "silver skin" on back of steak.

Mondi's Super Simple Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
I made this with boneless chicken breasts smothered in herbed butter (softened butter mixed with dried basil and thyme). One hour in 350 oven, covered in foil. Amazingly moist and full of flavor. Have to try it to believe it. Superb.

Southern Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This is SO delicious. Adjust to your taste. I used 1 C milk instead of the condensed milk and cream. Omitted butter. Used 1/2 C brown sugar instead of 1 C white sugar. Also tried it with 1/2 C milk and 1/2 C plain yogurt. I have made it with and without topping - both are good. Once, I also added three eggs and left in the oven too long and ended up with a delicious squash cake! I make this at least once a week!

Bacon Cheddar Chive Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Delicious. These will be great to make ahead and freeze throughout the school year. My modifications: I used 1C whole wheat and 1C white flour, 1 t. garlic powder, 1/4 C fresh chopped chives, 1.5C extra sharp cheddar, and 1/2C Greek yogurt (instead of mushroom soup).

Sunset Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
Absolutely easy and delicious. I used chicken stock and it was fine. I skipped the fresh dill. Next time I may add a green pepper and some basil.

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
Fast, easy, delicious. Modifications: I replaced the evaporated milk with skim milk, and the dried dill with two teaspoons of fresh dill. I also used 1 and 1/2# of wild caught salmon, two cloves of garlic, kernels from 1 ear of corn, reduced-fat cheddar, and 32 oz of chicken stock.

Peanut Butter Cookies IV

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Very good but could have been more peanutty. Still, a nice, mild peanut butter flavor and a good soft cookie.
