SparkPeople's Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Added this from the SparkPeople Cookbook so all my recipes are in one place. This is easy to prepare and quick to turn into a meal with tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes and black beans. I like to add cumin, cilantro and a couple of other spices rather than taco seasoning.

Cherry-Pistachio Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
This was so easy to make! I made little bags of Christmas candy for a group outing, and decided at the last minute to make this to add to them. I lined my pan with foil and sprayed it with cooking spray, then put a thin layer of melted white cocolate on it. I sprinkled most of the pistachios and cherry-flavored Craisins on that (I already had them), then drizzled the rest of the white chocolate over it. Then I took the remaining pistachios and fruit and sprinkled it on top, pressing it down lightly. After it was firm, I just lifted it out of the pan, peeled away the foil and gently broke it into small wedge-shaped pieces. It looked beautiful stacked with the fudge and other candies in little clear bags decorated with snowflakes and a red ribbon. Thanks for the recipe!

$2000.00 Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Made this for four pies last night, and it really turned out well. The crusts were light and flaky, not tough or heavy, and had a lovely flavor that complemented the chocolate and pumpkin fillings. I added a tad more moisture to it, but I live in the desert and it is dry, dry here, so nothing unusual there. I will use this again and again, I'm sure! Thanks for sharing!

Superb Cranberry Sauce with Apples and Pears

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I made two different cranberry sauces for Thanksgiving dinner this year - my usual Oranged Cranberry Sauce from this site, and this one. I cut it back to 8 servings, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was a beautiful, flavorful sauce, just a tad sweeter than I like. That could simply be the result of the fruit I used (pears can really vary in sweetness), and is easily fixed by adding a portion of the sugar, then adding more as needed after the fruit has had time to release its juices. I'll definitely make this again!

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
I've been using this recipe for several holidays now, but neglected to review it. It's a lovely sauce, perfect ratio of tart-to-sweet, and the citrus flavor is a great addition. I add a little splash of vanilla, because I think it adds a mellower note, and this year I used my immersion blender, then strained it, to satisfy the "canned" sauce fans in the family. They loved it!

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Tasty comfort food-type soup for a chilly night - great with a chunk of crusty bread. I used all sausage (because I was looking for a recipe to use up a large amount) and didn't miss the beef. It was also quick and easy to get on the table at the end of a long day, which is always a winner at our house.

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I've never been much of a meat loaf fan, so when someone in the family requests it, I always try a different recipe, looking for that perfect one I'll actually enjoy myself. I think I've finally found it. I had Italian-seasoned bread crumbs, so I left out the sage, added a little fresh ground pepper, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. It was nice and moist and flavorful, but simple and classic. I had some organic beef fresh ground at the little corner market, and I know that made it even better, too.

Chicken with Pineapple Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
We really enjoyed this! I'm always looking for easy, healthy, kid-friendly recipes for busy weeknights, and this fit the bill on all fronts. I ended up using a little larger pan, because the 9" square was kind of a tight squeeze, and I wanted all the chicken to have contact with the sauce as it baked. Also, I was pretty lazy about basting, and it was still moist and lovely. Very good served over rice!

Garlic Chicken Fried Brown Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
We really enjoyed this quick dish! This is a great way to reimagine leftovers. I doubled the recipe, added 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and some finely chopped leftover carrots. My green onions were extremely strong, so I only used 1/2 the amount called for and added a little chopped sweet onion that was also leftover from another recipe. I like that this uses brown rice, and we'll definitely be making this again.

Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Really nice salsa/relish to complement our grilled fish. I ate the rest with my favorite blue corn tortilla chips. The only change I made was to add a tiny bit of sea salt, which helps balance and round out the flavors.

Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
This was excellent! I left out the shallots, because the onion was so strong, I was afraid to add anything more along that line, and that turned out to be a good decision. I used about 3 tablespoons of dehydrated potato flakes to thicken the chowder a little (which I keep on hand for this very purpose), because I thought it was a bit too thin. I threw in a couple of whole garlic cloves with the chicken, and added a tiny bit of celery salt to the soup at the end. Easy, tasty comfort food!

Dill Veggie Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Made this without the cucumber (just didn't sound good) and about 1/2-3/4 the dressing called for (personal preference on most salads), and it was very good. Of course, I love dill, so it was to be expected! I also added a little extra pasta to use up the rest of a box. My daughter asked for the leftovers to pack in her school lunch box today, so I'm sure we'll be making this again and again.

Cranberry Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I keep cranberries in the freezer nearly all year. I thought I'd do a practice run for the holidays with this recipe, and I loved it. I will definitely be making this again then. Moist and sweet/tart, it is a lovely winter dessert. The brown sugar sauce finishes it perfectly. It did take less than 40 minutes to bake, but that could just be my oven. BTW, Janet is right, this is a bread pudding type-dessert, not a creamy pudding.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Simple, traditional and lovely! Made two large loaves this afternoon, and it's almost all gone already. This is the kind of bread where you skip making the sandwiches you intended to use it for, slice it warm, slather with butter and eat it right up.

Butter Rich Spritz Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Quick cookies to satisfy a sweet tooth! The dough was a bit thick for the cookie press, so I thinned it with a little milk. They had a nice delicate flavor, perfect with a cup of tea, but they were a tad on the dry side. Still a good cookie, though!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
I almost never make sloppy joes because I hate the pre-made sauce you buy in the store. I've never tried to make my own, but I bought some organic beef on sale, and the kids wanted sloppy joes. Not being a ketchup fan, I almost passed over this recipe, but I'm so glad I didn't. This is much better than pre-made, and the kids really liked it. Super easy, too, for a busy weeknight.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
I made a big batch of this to freeze for school lunches and the kids loved it! I didn't realize I was out of marjoram, so I just used Italian seasoning in place of that and the thyme. I also used a dried country-style noodle, and they were excellent in this. We'll definitely make this again.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Added some mini marshmallows to make "rocky road" blondies for the kids. The only thing I questioned was why there was baking powder and soda if there was no acid to activate the soda. So I subbed buttermilk for the milk. Great after school treat.

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Excellent! My daughter needed cupcakes for school and asked me to make these. All the comments made before me are dead on. Simply lovely! I'm sure I'll be making these many times. Thanks for sharing!
