M's Sloppy Joe Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
This was a nice flavor twist for Sloppy Joes, but I prefer the more "traditional" sauce.

Simple Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
Yes, a nice simple and nourishing soup. Instead of getting out my hand blender, I merely used a potato masher to smooth out the cooked vegetables. The broth I had was made from a rotisserie chicken, so that added quite a bit of seasoning. And I added garlic to the soup, cheese and croutons as a garnish.

Lemon Pepper Zucchini

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
I melted the butter in the baking pan, tossed in cubed zucchini to coat, and then sprinkled with lemon pepper. A nice side for teriyaki pork chops.

Asian-Style Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
I used Tate's Teriyaki Ginger Sauce so added no fresh ginger, also used white wine instead of sherry. Marinated a frozen loin chop in the refrigerator overnight (in a Ziploc bag). Enjoyed the citrus flavor. I cut the pork in strips and served over rice with the sauce. For summer when I don't want the oven on to heat up my kitchen, I will try skillet preparation.

Mushroom Barley Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I scaled the recipe to 2 servings, and added more mushrooms and onion than called for. Omitted the carrot and celery, but added some garlic powder and italian seasoning to the veggies as they sauteed & a couple splashes of worcestershire sauce to the broth. I like the chewy texture of barley, and this is a tasty way to use some and a KEEPER recipe.

Olive Spread Snackers

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I made this without the walnuts and spread it on a roast beef sandwich. I chopped the olives and then stirred in the other ingredients by hand for a more chunky spread.

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
This was one of the first recipes I found on AR and I've made it ever since. I've always used light brown sugar, but yesterday made it with dark brown sugar and it was excellent. Aways use ground cinnamon in this sauce, just adding to taste.

French Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I've made this stew recipe quite a few times before seeing it here on AR - I have to say it's just about my favorite. But this time I added mushrooms as others had and since I was only using 1 pound of beef stew meat, I only used 1 can of diced tomatoes - not Italian - I did not want the basil/oregano flavors to compete with the Dijon and thyme. Just added some garlic powder to the flour that coated the meat. And I simmered for probably 2 hours. Made this for guests and it was a hit.

Marinated Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Yes, this marinade is much sweeter than most. But I liked it. Instead of grilling the steak, I cut the marinated (overnight) meat in strips and pan fried in the marinade. Served with rice and a simple salad of baby greens and grape tomatoes for a very delicious meal. (There were a few steak strips left over from the first meal and I sauteed red bell pepper and onions, added some oregano, and the meat for very tasty fajitas.)

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Instead of a bag of dried fruit, I snipped dried apricots and added some dried cranberries; chocolate chips in place of nuts. I only had salted sunflower seeds, but I thought they were fine in the recipe. These are equally good as bars or crumbled as granola... (a tip for making a better bar shape: press on the top of the bars immediately after removing from the oven with the back of a fork or spatula. When they are cool, they will stay together better.)

Paprika Chicken with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Had leftover cooked chicken to use - so just sauteed the onion and mushrooms until caramelized, then added the paprika and garlic powder, s & p, the cooked chicken and some chardonnay. Simmered until the juices reduced a bit to a sauce and then served over angel hair pasta. I would definitely make this again, either following the recipe's directions or my way depending on whether I'm using cooked or uncooked chicken.

Banana Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Had only "regular" bread and noted other reviews that said it was difficult to keep the sliced bananas between the pieces of bread while cooking. So I soaked one piece of bread, placed it on a griddle, spread it with mashed banana, then soaked the other piece of bread and placed on top to cook. Problem solved and the results were delicious.

Robin's Sweet and Spicy Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I would have rated this recipe a "5" for everything except the amount of sweet and spicy... I would never add as much sugar and as much cayenne to this as called for. Simmering uncovered for about half the time was enough to evaporate the liquid and leave a nice thick sauce around the beans. This was delicious served with rice cooked in chicken broth. My favorite black beans and rice recipe...use Rotel tomatoes with cilantro and lime juice!

Easy Honey Mustard Mozzarella Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Because other reviewers indicated there was too much bacon grease in the sauce and the bacon did not crisp up well, I chopped the bacon and fried it partially to render off some of the fat before sprinkling it on top of the chicken. Baked the chicken covered for the first 25 minutes and then uncovered once I added the bacon and cheese. Timing was right on. Used half dijon mustard and half yellow and made extra sauce but don't think I really needed it. Very tasty and good presentation, too.

Barbeque Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This was a tasty initial meal entree, and the ground leftovers made a wonderful sandwich - on toasted bread with lettuce and mayo.

Broccoli Squash Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
Very tasty - reminded me of a crustless vegetable quiche. I had cauliflower to use, so did a combination of broccoli, yellow squash, red onion, and cauliflower. Used mozzarella cheese with parmesan on top. I agree with the other reviewers that salt is needed.

Spinach Whole Wheat Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
I sauteed the spinach, green onion, and seasonings briefly before layering with the cheese on the tortilla. You can be sure I'll be making these again soon!

Ham Spaghetti Skillet

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
I thought this was a super delicious way to use leftover ham. Just increased the amount of the ham since I wasn't using chicken. I used large curd cottage cheese because that's what I had, and found that it "melted" into the sauce with a few minutes of extra simmering.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
No creaming the butter! That makes the recipe extra easy AND delicious. I made it just as the recipe states except I used special dark cocoa powder to make it even more dark and fudgy. About half the cinnamon just because of our personal tastes.

Jayme's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I made the Teriyaki Onion burger recipe from this site and thought this would be a good side. It certainly was...and couldn't be easier to put together...but I did add some grated carrot for a little extra color.
