Texas Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
Great recipe! For some reason, I never would have thought to bake with ranch dressing! We used cheddar instead of mozzarella, just because I thought it went better with the ranch. Sprinkled the chicken with garlic salt before adding dressing to it. I would suggest baking your chicken for about 30 minutes, and adding the cheese at the last 5 minutes, otherwise it melts too much. Thanks!

Asparagus Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
We loved this quiche! It is very easy to make, bakes quickly, and tastes wonderful. We had some extra shredded Monterey Jack, so I used that instead of the Swiss, and it tasted great. Thanks for the recipe!

Grandma's Hash Browns

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
Thank you for this recipe! It's GREAT! I'm not the best cook, & don't have many things up my sleeve for breakfast, as our breakfasts growing up were mostly frozen waffles & cold cereal. My husband & I have decided to have breakfast every morning together now that we have our first child, & we'll surely be serving these hash browns A LOT! We don't mind prepping them the PM b4 at all - in fact, it helps us in the morning. Our only tip is if you're short on time, dice the potatoes b4 boiling them, & then just throw them in the pan in AM instead of spending time shredding them; we also add some cayenne and parsley while frying the potatoes. YUM!

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
Really yummy! We did cut back on the sugars as one reviewer recommended, used only whole wheat flour, added some cinnamon, and did not make the glaze. They were plenty sweet and I'm not sure if people were concerned about the yams - I just shredded them on a cheese grater and they do disappear into the batter while baking, similar to carrots or zucchini in similar recipes - but even more so. Fun change of pace for snack time or dessert. :)

Touchdown Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
We left out the chiles because I honestly never buy them ... our kids don't care for added spiciness. We sadly have a bean allergy in the family so I need a beanless chili recipe on hand. This one is very yummy. I did substitute pork broth for the beer, and might take the chili powder down to 1/4c next time. Thanks for the recipe - a good one is hard to find without beans as an ingredient!

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
Yummy! I did make a few changes: did a small dice on our ham and potatoes, thinly sliced the cabbage. I cooked the ham with the onions at the beginning, waited on adding the cabbage till last, and subbed broth for water. I did have to add a little more liquid to the pot once I started to cook the potatoes and I did have to cook them for longer than 20 minutes - I think because they were diced and not sliced AND also because we are at a high altitude. I added the cabbage just before we were ready to eat and only let it cook 'just enough.' Really economical and easy dish. Thanks for sharing it!!

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
I used this recipe to make the frosting for my kiddo's birthday cake - SO yummy. I did use unsalted butter versus shortening; we don't use shortening for a whole lot, and I'd have to buy a big tub of it (we'd buy Spectrum's if we did buy some, and that's the only size they sell) - but everyone loved it just the same!

Oven Meatball Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
This is a great recipe! It almost reminds me of Hedgehogs but with more flavor (and veggies LOL). I did make just a couple of changes: I substituted dried onion just b/c that's what I always use when adding onion to ground beef, I added in one teaspoon of garlic powder to the meatball mix, I substituted just a slight sprinkling of black pepper for the chili pepper (three year old doesn't care for spicy things), and ended up leaving out the onions simply because I couldn't fit them without tearing my meatballs apart! I actually made about two dozen or so small meatballs like I do with hedgehogs (using a smaller sized cookie dough scoop) instead of 12 larger ones. I ended up having to add another tablespoon or so of olive oil to the pan, as the first couple went away as I browned the meatballs. I also had to add another tablespoon of olive oil to my flour later, as there wasn't enough left to make a roux. Added in about two tablespoons of red wine vinegar and liberal shakings of garlic salt to the tomato juice mixture. Also salted and peppered my veggies before mixing them into the pot. A great dish for after a long and busy day and wonderful to freeze! Thanks so much for sharing!!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
EXCELLENT! Didn't make any changes (except for using frozen blueberries b/c it's hard to come by fresh organic blueberries in February in CO) and it came out great. May try substituting some applesauce for some of the veggie oil next time to cut back on the fat - but I've tried it before in other recipes with less than tasty results, so we'll have to see. :)

Very Easy Mushroom Barley Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Just great! SO very easy - it actually lives up to its name! We like ours a bit thicker than this has come out at the end of cooking, but I plan on cooking a little longer w/the lid off (we live in CO - it's all about evaporation!) to get it to thicken a bit. Otherwise, might toss a bit in a blender and add it back in to thicken it up that way. **MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING PEARLED BARLEY OR SOAK YOURS ACCORDING TO PACKAGE DIRECTIONS if it's not - barley that is not pearled will take forever to cook otherwise (it looks like this got left out of the ingredient info).

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
SO yummy! A great way to use up extra apples from apple-picking. Had to add couple tablespoons of apple juice to be able to mix the flour into the sugar/egg mix, and it is a bit tricky getting the bake time right (all those reviewers said DO NOT OVERBAKE! so I was a little scared, esp living in a high altitude area) - I would say go with 30 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!

Amazing Greek Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
We really like this and have made it a few times. A nice twist on plain old pasta sauce. We usually cube a chicken breast (raw) and we toss it in with the sauce to cook. Thanks!

Simple Lemon Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Oh my gosh - this is one of our favorite chicken recipes! I pound out the chicken breast so that it's thinner and even so it cooks more quickly (we're ALWAYS in a hurry!). I use bottled lemon juice just because I never remember to grab fresh lemons at the store, and the juice keeps for quite a long time in the fridge. I just drizzle it over the top and let it set while I do some risotto and steam veggies. Then I flip it and drizzle it on the other side, and sprinkle it with salt and pepper and oregano on that side before it goes into the pan. Then that side goes down in the pan, sprinkle the other side the same way, and put the lid on - this helps keep the chicken really moist. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Pear Bread I

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
One of our favorite quick breads! We often use up pears that have gotten a little overripe (by accident) in this recipe and it makes for a really moist bread!

Cabbage Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
Super yummy! Great way to use up extra cabbage! No changes made... that's probably a first!! LOL The only thing I will note is that we use all organic ingredients, therefore our ketchup is sweetened w/sugar instead of HFCS (which is what is used in most conventional ketchups). This may have been why I would not characterize what we made as being too sweet, but you also can't account for everyone's "sloppy joe taste," some like it sweeter and some notsomuch. :) **nope - I did in fact make one change: subbed soy for worshy sauce - can't find an organic one we like.** THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!!

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2010
A great recipe - with or without the chocolate chips. We did half our recipe with them in and half without and all of the muffins were moist and yummy. Easy to make; always a great way to use up extra zukes from our garden. Thanks for the recipe!!
