Chinese Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I've made similar salads but have added soy sauce to the dressing. I like the idea of using the seasoning packet from the ramen noodles because then I don't have to waste it!

Spiced Honey Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
This makes an ordinary snack a bit more special. The shiny glaze that hardens on each individual pretzel is quite attractive. Don't forget to stir the pretzels as they cool! I do think that I would like to try adding some extra spices as other reviewers have suggested.

Tomato Green Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
I used fresh green beans and crushed tomatoes. Just added the tomatoes at the same time as the beans and let all of the ingredients simmer together for at least 30 minutes. Very tasty and nourishing and I would probably always have the ingredients on hand so it's convenient, too. I used Italian Seasoning instead of all basil and added a small amount of sugar.

Half-hour Pudding Cake ( Montreal Pudding)

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Liked the flavor of the sauce, but was disappointed with the texture of the cake. One reviewer indicated it was important to bake this in the proper size dish to avoid "rubbery" texture to the cake, so maybe the end results were my fault. I probably won't try this again unless I'm just really wanting something to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Chicken and Apple Curry

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Wow. Slightly sweet yet spicy (with my additions) and an absolutely great way to use leftover cooked chicken. I simply simmered the chicken pieces in the sauce, but I'd like to try baking it, too. I did add quite a bit more curry, also cumin and coriander as well as some generous shakes of hot pepper sauce. Using red onion in the curry and fresh cilantro as a garnish gave it plenty of color and I thought made for a nice presentation. Nice served over brown rice.

Vikki's Red Bean Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
This has to be one of the tastiest ways to prepare smoked sausage! I halved the recipe as I didn't want 14 servings - only one can of beans (red, not kidney) but a whole can of tomatoes. I skipped the chile peppers and cayenne because the jalapeno flavored smoked sausage I used was enough "hot" as far as I was concerned... Delicious with sweet cornbread and iced tea. mmm mmm

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Just the sweetness and texture that I expect from cornbread. Couldn't resist sneaking a piece before I served it with Vikki's Red Bean Sausage from AR. I think I'll have a piece of the cornbread for dessert, too!

Tomato Bacon Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I'm so glad I found this recipe before I settled on making a BLT sandwich. I used green onion and sauteed briefly with the bell pepper in the bacon drippings just to soften a bit. Using mayo is a wonderful alternative to tomato sauce, and like others I doubled the amount.

Deviled Chicken I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Deliciously moist...I added about a tsp of brown sugar to the spice mix because I like spicy but I like sweet, too. The drippings made a fantastic sauce to spoon over the chicken at eating time! I served this with roasted sweet potatoes & red onions that were in the oven for the same time. (The chicken baked covered with foil for the first half of the cooking but then uncovered after I basted with the sauce.)

Shrimp Durango

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
I'm sorry to say that I was not as impressed with this recipe as I had hoped. I used more lime juice than called for, but the flavor just didn't seem to be there. I thought the sauce was too thin to put over pasta, so just ate the shrimp alone. Will use the leftovers for chipotle shrimp fajitas and hope for a little more flavor that way...

Roasted Vegetable Medley

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
I think roasted vegetables are the best! Here's the variety I used: sweet potato, white potato, red onion, carrot, zucchini. I tossed the first four vegetables in a large bowl until coated with the olive oil and then placed in the baking pan. Roasted them about 20 minutes and then added the zucchini chunks that were marinated in a small amount of balsamic vinegar, s&p and basil. Roasted about 20 minutes more.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
A super-declicious soup! I love mushroom soup and these flavors are great. My fault - I had only 1/2 of the mushrooms called for and with the full amount this would be even better.

Tomato and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
The dressing really compliments the flavor of the avocado and tomato. But the amount is WAY too much, especially for just drizzling. Also thought the balsamic vinegar was too strong in the dressing. I'll make this again with some decreased ingredient amounts. (Obviously, my salad presentation wasn't in the wagon-wheel configuration specified. I just fanned the avocados and scattered the tomato slices on top.)

Simple Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Toasting the bread in the preheating oven is a GREAT idea and the timing was perfect - I used only 2 teaspoons mayo instead of tablespoons and the tuna mixture was still a little softer than I'd like - and I did drain the tuna well!

Mashed Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
A delicious way to use leftover mashed potatoes...I made the soup extra rich by adding some sour cream. No chives now that the summer garden is gone, so I used green onion in the soup and for the garnish. Also french fried onions to add some crunch.

Red, White, and Green Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
With extra seasoning, this is a wonderful change from tomato-sauced pizza. To add the extra flavor, I brushed Kraft Tuscan House Dressing on the crust (I used a pre-baked crust so following the baking directions the package gave) followed with the ricotta mixture, to which I added a generous amount of Italian Seasoning.

Kicky Steak Strips with Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Mmmm...Kicky Steak Strips and Garlic Mashed Potatoes! I eat a lot of rice, and wanted something different. I marinated the steak strips overnight and used Boetje's Stone Ground Mustard instead of yellow. I also sauteed extra onions and added quartered mushrooms. You can't beat a 2-ingredient marinade!

Apple Cranberry Relish

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I already reviewed this, but for some reason can't edit the review. Just wanted to say that it is a MUST to make this a day ahead - it really thickens up and is a very pleasing consistency. I still haven't changed my mind about omitting the celery next time, though :)

Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I only had boneless skinless chicken breasts to use, so was wondering if I would have enough drippings to make the "gravy". I used 3 slices of bacon for each piece of chicken and had plenty...added the mushrooms to the sauce before pouring over the chicken...a delicious and rather impressive entree.

Vegetable Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
I made a small amount of this and ate it with sliced cucumbers as a pre-dinner snack. It's really good because it's different than the usual veggie dip... (I also did not have tarragon vinegar so used dried along with some rice vinegar.)
