Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
Delicious and so easy! I tweaked slightly for what I had on hand & made it vegitarian: A little less tomato sauce; vegie broth instead of chick broth (no extra water); lots of extra fresh basil. This is a new favorite and I will make again soon.

Spinach Crumb Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
I cut way back on the butter for the bread crumb mix as one reviewer suggested, but it was still too buttery. Other than that, fantastic! We'll be eating spinach much more regularly!

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Toasting nuts before hand is important. you can skip the step, as some recipes do, but it's better if you toast. I substitute water for milk so I can share the nuts with my vegan friends.

Halibut with Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
Forgot the butter but didn't miss it. Added fresh chives because I had it. Baked 400 degrees for about 25 minutes including briefly under the broiler to crisp bread crumbs. Keep thinking about what other recipes could be enhanced with this cream sauce. 4 year old and 2 year old enjoyed it too!

Curried Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
Delicious. I was going to skip the cream sauce, but so glad I didn't. The soup has a good amount of kick. I was surprised my 4 year old and 2 year old didn't complain about the spiciness.

Cream Cheese-Filled Coffeecake With Fruit Preserves and Crumble Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
This turned out great but I had to cook it over 60 minutes. I used vanilla yogurt because that's what I had. I would have added vanilla to the cake batter if I had used plain yogurt. Also, rather than jam, I used frozen raspberries and mashed them a bit (less sugar that way and saves my precious homemade jam for a more worthy use). Oh, and I skipped all the extra work with the foil and served it straight out of the 9x9 pan.

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2014
Used 3/4 cup plain yogurt + 1/4 milk as substitute for buttermilk. Make sure to melt butter as directed - it makes a difference. I always add chopped walnuts (2/3 cup). Made 24 standard size muffins, but I only fill about 2/3 full. Any fuller and the streusel topping spills over and cooks onto the pan edges making removal from the pan difficult. It is good to use foil liners on this one(usually i go without any liners)to make handling and removal easier.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Quite a bit of kick -- seems to come from the black pepper. I had just opened a new container, so maybe the pepper in mine was more powerful than the average cook's.

Absolute Best Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
Very Good! Used a cup of cubed spiral ham out of the freezer (thawed). Also, used mixed cheese: half swiss, half cheddar. Microwaved sliced potatoes with just a splash of water to get them started - then added other ingredients and baked as directed. Didn't even notice the cauliflower. After dinner a guest asked for the recipe, and it wasn't until then that I remembered the cauliflower was even in there!

Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Fabulous. Used leftover ham I had in the freezer. Added a little celery because i could, and went with 4 teaspoons chick bullion along with the 5 cups boiling water. Didn't need milk until i reheated the next day. Might have to make this again this week. 4 hours in the slow cooker was perfect. Yum. *I used don't-need-to-soak peas.* I think others that had undercooked peas may have had a different variety that needed soaking.

Cornish Game Hens with Rice Stuffing

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
Delicious. I was a little nervous two of these little hens would feed 4, but it worked out great. I was also concerned about using only 1/3 cup rice (I used long grain white), but that was plenty too. I had more than enough to stuff the birds and put the rest on the bottom of the pan. I added chopped celery and carrots to my stuffing at the same time as onion, because it's just not stuffing without. I used a thermometer to monitor the hens after an hour in the oven. I didn't quite need the whole cooking time for the hens. I did think the rice was a little too flavored and would go 1/2 on the bullion (if any) next time. Served asparagus with cream sauce as a side. Perfect spring dinner. May have to make again for Resurrection Sunday.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Wonderful! I love how simple this is - I was working with minimal supplies in the house. I ended up making my own salsa - crushed canned pineapple, cilantro, red pepper, onion, tomato. Served chicken on a bed of lettuce with toasted chips and guac. Delicious like restaurant salads. Very tender chicken!

Round Steak and Gravy II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I didn't have onion soup so used 2 cups of water + onion and mushroom dry soup mix along with a can of the cream of mushroom soup. I also used garlic, chopped onions, and green pepper when browning the meat. I covered the roaster with foil and then put the lid on to seal in juices. This was a great fall-off-the-fork meal. I served with mashed potatoes --- to take advantage of the delicious gravy. I didn't have quite as much gravy as I expected, will add more water next time. To compensate, I made gravy with the browned bits in the pan, water from my potatoes, and a little cornstarch. Delicious!
