Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Very quick, easy and good! I had sliced almonds so used those in place of slivered. I also added some chopped green onion and since I had some kohlrabi from my CSA farmer I used that in place of the celery for the crunch. Excellent recipe!

5-Minute Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
Fabulous recipe! I wanted a quick snack and didn't feel like taking the time to make a traditional guacamole recipe, and this was perfect! I used a fork to mash the avacado so it would be chunkier. I also doubled the amount of salsa. (The type/quality of the salsa you choose will make a difference, so use a good chunky salsa with lots of tomato pieces, Green Mountain Gringo is especially good.) I took another short cut and used 1/4 tsp. garlic salt in place of regular salt, then I was able to omit the garlic clove. Tasted great and I was able to whip this up in no time! Thanks for this super quick recipe....it's a keeper!!!

Personal Portobello Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
LOVED these! I scraped the gills out and baked gill side down for about 8 minutes to remove excess moisture. (then skipped the baking for 5 minutes part). I had red & yellow pepper, so I added those to the pizzas along with some fresh baby spinach. I wanted them vegetarian, so I skipped the sausage. What a great recipe and so versatile to whatever veggies you have on hand.....this is going to be the perfect summer recipe for us! Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous Fajitas

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
These were not only super delicious but SO quick & easy! I had leftover steak in the fridge, so I sliced that thin and used in place of the chicken. I added just a touch of chili powder for a bit more spice as well. I served them with cheddar cheese, sour cream & salsa. What a great recipe....this one is a keeper for sure!!!

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
This was delicious! I sautéed fresh mushrooms along with the garlic, and then tossed in a bit of feta cheese along with the parmesan. Both hubby and I loved the flavor! I think this dish would do well with shrimp in place of chicken for a change too. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Carrot Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
I try to have at least one meatless night for dinner each week, so was exited to try these. The only change I made was omit the sugar. I did have a bit of trouble keeping them together when forming the patties. Maybe refrigerating them a bit prior would help?? I loved these but my husband said they were good, but could use a bit more flavor. I like that these are healthy though and would make them again!

Spicy Cajun Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
These were very quick and easy to prepare and were very tasty too. I doubled the amount of the seasoning mix I used, and used 1 lb. of shrimp since I had to feed more people. (And I still have enough leftover seasoning mix to make this recipe again....and I will!) Loved the spiciness and the flavor, except next time I would cut down on the salt, as I thought they were just a bit too salty. Otherwise, a fabulous recipe!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
I was skeptical how a chili recipe this easy could be so good, but it certainly is! I have other recipes that result in a good chili, but this one is just as good if not better, and SO much quicker & easier! I made mine using the "hot" Pace picante sauce, and used fresh garlic. I let mine simmer in the slow cooker all day and what a treat it was! Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, after reading Deb's helpful tips in her review, and it was amazingly fabulous chili.....thanks for sharing Deb! This will definitely be my "go-to recipe" for chili from now on!

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
This was so delicious! I roasted the squash in the oven as others suggested. I sauteed the onion along with minced garlic, shredded carrots and the seasonings to bring out the flavors more, then added the roasted squash to the mixture. I used organic veggie broth and since all I had on hand was evaporated milk, I used that in place of the cream, which worked wonderfully. I served the soup w/toasted ciabatta bread with melted havarti cheese - what a fabulous meal! My hubby and 19-year old son both raved about this soup...I will definitely make again!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Very good meatloaf recipe...DH thought it was fabulous! He started with some ketchup on his serving, then later mentioned he actually liked it better with no ketchup on top! I agree, so one can really taste the flavor of this meatloaf. I used about 2 lbs. of meat, and ended up having to bake for 90 mins. to reach temp. of 160 degrees. Wonderful recipe - thanks for sharing...can't wait to have the leftovers in sandwiches!

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
Very easy & tasty way to fix potatoes! I lined the pan with foil and used a touch of olive oil spray to prevent sticking. I used only 1/2 Tbsp. of kosher salt, otherwise followed exactly and we thought they were great....loved the spicyness! First time I made these I topped with the cheese, next time I skipped cheese just to save some fat/calories. Delicious either way!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
This is fabulous paired with an Asian main dish, a wonderful compliment! I made an Indian curry shrimp dish, and this went perfectly with it. Delicious flavor and a nice change on regular broccoli. Would make this again!

Crispy Eggplant with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This was really a hit...DH who prefers a meal with meat, even said it was good enough as a main dish! I have been making eggplant parmesan for years and love it, but it is a lot of work and time consuming. This was just as good and so much quicker & easier to prepare! Loved the crispy coating and the spicy sauce! I did cover my baking pan with tin foil and sprayed w/ olive oil to prevent sticking. Thanks for sharing this fabulous recipe....will be making this a lot!!!

This dish not only tastes fabulous, but what a beautiful presentation as well! I used my garden fresh tomatoes & zucchini and used fresh mozzerella. I served this with homemade Italian marinara and Ciabatta bread....what a delightful Italian meal!

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
~Even better than going to my favorite Asian restaurant! We like spicy Asian food, so I added some crushed red pepper flakes with the broccoli. I tossed in some sesame seeds with the marinade as well. This recipe is a definite keeper!!!~

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
I have been making smoothies almost every day for breakfast, but had never seen a recipe with oats in it, so I was really looking forward to trying this. I am so glad I did! Filling & delicious! I like that you can change up ingredients to your liking or what you have on hand as well. I used steel cut oats & ground them up a bit in blender first. I also had some plain yogurt so added that along with the soy milk. I had frozen mixed berries that I used in place of the strawberries and also threw in about 2 tablespoons of cocoa and some flaxseed meal. I felt this did not need the sugar, which I was happy about. I loved the addition of oats and this will be my new "daily breakfast smoothie" from now on!!!!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

THE best soft & chewy oatmeal raisin cookies ever! I loved the spices...they smelled and tasted fabulous! I didn't have any shortening, so just used butter. They were so yummy...I brought a batch to my son's college dorm, and they were a total hit! Thanks for sharing this perfect cookie recipe!

Mom's Shredded Elk Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
This sauce is amazing!!! I will use this recipe for ANY type of meat....would be delicious for barbequed beef or pulled pork as well. It really was perfect for elk, one would think they were eating beef! I followed the advice of "FAT~DOG~LANE" and added a tbsp. of vinegar. It did add some even better flavor....if that's possible! Thanks for sharing such a fabulous recipe! It's a keeper!

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
If you like a nice, soft, chewy chocolate chip cookie, these are the ones!!!! My only issue with the recipe is it fails to mention that these are LARGE cookies. I placed them on the cookie sheet as I would regular cookies and they really spread out. Next batch, I placed only 6 cookies on the baking sheet and that was perfect. I used parchment paper and they came out beautifully. Also realize that these do NOT brown on top, so cook them for specified time, and they will finish setting on the baking sheet. (One batch I turned up to 325 degrees as a reviewer suggested, and they came out lightly browned, but also crispy instead of soft & chewy.) So stick with EXACT directions and these are fabulous! A bit more time & effort than the recipe on the chocolate chip package, but well worth it! Thanks Felix....they ARE the best I've ever eaten!
