Baked Ziti Plus

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2013
Excellent dish. It was way too much food, I cut the ingredients in half and put in a 9 x 13 pan, still had some leftover to freeze for an individual dinner. I used shredded mozzarella cheese instead of slices and/or cubes, and cooked the garlic with the meat to eliminate a step. Added 1 1/2 tsp salt, 4 tsp sugar, 1 tsp italian seasoning, and 1/4 tsp pepper to the sauce. I didn't have tomato puree so substituted a small can of tomato paste and 1 cup of water. I had red peppers instead of the green. I used 1# top quality Italian sausage from our local butcher shop, it made a difference since it features prominently in the overall flavor. This was delicious. You can taste the long simmering of the sauce in the overall product. This is definitely being added to our family recipe repertoire, everyone loved it and you can feed an army!

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
Absolutely delicious! I could not believe how tasty this simple recipe was. Please don't stir during cooking, let the vegetables get charred edges...heaven. I did cut the oil down to 2 T and that was plenty.

Honey Baked Lentils

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
Excellent! This was really really good. The amount of liquid does seem like a lot but it gets absorbed. I used less salt and put in carmelized onions instead of the chopped onion it called for and that worked out well. Another reviewer said it was kind of like baked beans...yes, it does resemble that but not quite so sweet. I'll definitely make this again.

Gumbo Style Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Absolutely delicious! I honestly don't know why it turned out so well, it seems like more than the sum of its ingredients. I added a can of chicken broth to the roux to make it more soup like and served it over rice. I ended up having thirds. It's fast and easy. After browning the flour and adding the broth, I just threw in all the other ingredients and cooked for 20 min and that was it. Best recipe I've ever had from this site and that's saying a lot.

Curry Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
An awesomely different soup, I really enjoyed it. A couple of things...first of all it's very salty- don't add the total amount of salt suggested, 1 T, if any additional at all. I added half that amount and it was too much. I also cut every spice in half and that was enough for me. I thought it tasted highly spiced and very complex with half the spices. I'd suggest starting with half and then adding more if you think it needs it and with the salt just leaving it out till you taste it. I used yellow split peas, I thought the color would be a bit more appetizing. I also presoaked the peas and still ended up cooking the soup over twice as long as the recipe called for to get the peas to be tender enough. This recipe sounds a bit farfetched but really, if you have adventurous tastebuds try it, it's worth the effort.

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
This lasagne was phenomenal. I have 3 older boys and usually a house full of their friends...they all absolutely loved it. The friends said it was the best lasagne they had ever had. It's become one of my favorite dinners to make plus having the leftovers is wonderful. You could use the meat sauce alone over pasta for a tasty Bolognese sauce. Before putting the lasagne pan in the oven, place it on a cookie tray so any spill-over will be easy to clean up.

Blueberry Breakfast Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
Excellent and easy recipe. I made this with half the sugar as a sauce for salmon to replicate a dish I had at a restaurant. It was delicious. My son and I ate the leftover sauce right out of the pan for dessert :)

White Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
This sauce can be used as the base for many dinners. I double the sauce recipe and add cut up cooked chicken or turkey. Serve over rice or toast, it's one of my kids' favorite meals.

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
This is a good, basic casserole. I followed the lead of many of the reviewers and added some onion, garlic, basil, and oregano when cooking the turkey. I added a can of diced tomatoes and I also mixed everything together except for the cheese on top when cooking the casserole. I didn't have egg noodles so I used rotini. It's good, nothing too fancy and everyone enjoyed it.

Bromley Coleslaw

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Excellent coleslaw recipe. The green onions and honey both add a good flavor. I'm on a diet so I used half the dressing recipe and it was enough. I also used light mayonnaise.

Bean Burrito Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
I'll admit I was very skeptical about the ingredients in this casserole. I just wasn't sure how it would taste. I am happy to report that it is actually quite good...most importantly my teenage boys every scrap of it whenever I make it. It's been a big hit in my house and is the perfect thing to make when I'm short on time.

Skin-on Savory Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
Excellent recipe. I used redskin potatoes and the slightly sweet taste and smooth texture they have worked well in this recipe. I also added a few whole cloves of garlic to the potatoes when they were boiling and mashed them up with the potatoes. I did not add the butter since my family does that at the table. Very good, my kids loved it as well. I will never want to peel potatoes again and why should I? This is more nutritious, easier and tasty.

Polish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
This was good overall. I did not care for the dumplings too much. I realize that they are supposed to be heavy and dense but for my taste I will substitute buttermilk baking mix dumplings next time. I also added some carrots and potatoes. My kids and husband liked it.
