Zucchini Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Everyone has their own way of making eggplant parm or lasagna but this recipe is a good stepping stone to making it yours. I didn't measure anything but did use all the ingredients listed. With all the zucchini that's growing in the garden this was a delish way to use it. Thank you!

Cabbage and Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
With so much cabbage from the garden, I'm looking for as many recipes as I can. This was very good but I felt it needed a few more seasonings including some caraway. Kielbasa would work in this dish as well or add a bit of sour cream. It's all good and thank you!

Spaghetti a la Philly

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
This recipe has a lot of potential but it really needs a lot of seasoning to get there. Every other Saturday Rob and I have his two young grandchildren and I try and make "kid friendly" dinners for them. Since Philly came out with their cooking cream, I subbed with the Italian version. I browned ground turkey and added diced onions, garlic and green peppers until semi soft. Then came the spaghetti sauce, Philly cooking cream and seasonings. Garlic and onion powders, black pepper, oregano, basil and parsley. Placed everything into a casserole dish, topped with parm and mozzarella and then baked until it was all bubbly and melty. The kids loved it and so did we!!

Sausage Cabbage Skillet

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
This was really good Yvette! I took "Happy In the Kitchen's" advice and added beef broth for everything to simmer in. As always, I added more seasonings including a smoked sea salt which complimented the sausage nicely. We've got lots of cabbage growing in the garden and this was the perfect dish to make good use of it. Thank you!!

No-Noodle Zucchini Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
I picked our very first zucchini from our garden yesterday and then went on a recipe search. I decided to make this vegetarian so I eliminated the ground beef but everything else stayed wonderfully the same with the addition of a few more seasonings and spices. It was terrific! Thank you so much!

Todd's Famous Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Made this last night to serve with a chicken/vegie and pancit noodle stir fry. I was lazy and used peanut butter which eliminated the need for the sugar and oil. I thinned the mixture out with chicken broth and it was absolutely delicious! This one's a keeper and I thank you Lisa!

Sausage Red Beans 'n' Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
YUM! We really loved this dish Thelma! I used smoked turkey sausage, two whole bell peppers, Rotel spicy diced tomatoes, pinto beans and seasoned canned pea beans. I wanted the mixture a little saucier so I threw in a can of tomato sauce. So quick and easy and pretty healthy to boot! Thank you so much!!

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This was a terrific base recipe that my sweetie used for our dinner last night. The few changes he made was using Pepper Jack and Parm cheeses in lieu of the American, added celery to the mix and garnished with green onion. He put this together while I was at work and was concerned that it was going to be too soupy. I assured him that the angel hair pasta would absorb much of the liquid and the cooking process would take care of the rest. That it did and I can honestly say that this was the BEST tetrazzini I'd ever eaten. I had two helpings last night and even had another bowl for lunch today. I can't get enough of this. Thank you so very much Corwynn!! YUM!!!!!!!!

Asian Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
I made this for Rob tonight and he LOVED it! I let the fillet I had marinate for several hours and instead of cooking it in the oven, I heated up my cast iron grill pan and gave the salmon a good sear for four minutes on either side. I brought the sauce to a boil in a separate pan and drizzled it over the fish once on the plate. I'm not a salmon person but I'll definitely be using this recipe the next time I buy myself some cod. Thank you Lynseey!!

Creamed Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
Being that I've been working on the weekends, Rob has been doing the cooking and made this Saturday night. This recipe has good bones but it really needed something else. I found it to be bland which I believe a few more seasonings would have helped that out. Honestly, If I hadn't seen the package of cheese in the fridge, I wouldn't have known it was even in the dish. The topping was good but the spinach itself needed to be creamier and more flavorful. This dish definitely has potential so next time I'll be giving it a shot. Thank you Jane!

Ricotta and Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
Yum! The filling was absolutely delicious Maria! Because I didn't have any tomato sauce in the house I had to go a different route. I made a roux, added a can of low sodium cream of mushroom soup along with a few seasonings and a quarter cup of Marsala wine and let it simmer for a few minutes. As in the recipe I poured it over the chicken and baked. You can be sure that next time I'll certainly try it with the tomato sauce but in a pinch, this was a very nice flavorful alternative. Thank you Maria!

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
This recipe was wonderful! I added garlic and onion powders and left out the carrots due to allergies. This was incredibly refreshing and flavorful and I look forward to using fresh vegies from my garden this summer. Thank you Syneva B!

Easy French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
It honestly doesn't get much better or easier than this. I've tried French dip recipes that calls for slow cooking a roast and honestly, I feel this is much tastier. Like others, I sauteed onions and mushrooms and livened up the rolls with a bit of butter and garlic powder. Because I couldn't find the consomme I used a can of Au Jus which is made just for this type of sandwich so it worked perfectly. Thank you so much writergirl!

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
Before marinating, I made a spice rub with garlic and onion powders, black pepper and paprika and gave the chicken a good massage. I only marinated for four hours but the wonderful flavors came thru beautifully. I used thighs and legs which I cooked on my stove top grill, however, as soon as the weather warms up, you can be sure this will be going on the outdoor grill. It was wonderful Diana and we thank you!

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
What a fantastic recipe! Instead of water, I cooked the beans in low salt chicken broth and added no additional salt as the ham hock has plenty on it's own. As always, garlic and onion powders were added along with plenty of black pepper. My sauce turned out thick and creamy and full of flavor and I can't wait to dig into this delicious bowl full of fiber tonight! Thank you Sabryston!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
With the addition of onion and garlic powders and a bit of cumin, this dish was fabulous Teresa! I marinated the chicken overnight and at the last minute decided to make it even heartier by adding in sauteed potatoes. My S.O. loved this dish and ate three giant sized tortillas! Thank you so much!

Soul Smothered Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Comfort food at it's best Veronica! I cut back on the butter and used more seasonings.......garlic and onion powders and dill and added in a touch of Gravy Master to add more flavor. I served this over mashed potatoes and my S.O. and I thought it was just delicious. Thank you!

Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Altho I cut back on the sugar it was still a very good buttercream frosting coupled with the fact that this recipe is one of the few that did not call for shortening. The thought of eating shortening, sweetened or not, sends me over the edge. I added a bit of red food coloring and made pretty little individual heart shaped pink frosted cakes. The love of my life adored this recipe Diana and we both thank you!

White Mountain Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Made this into a sheet cake so I could use my heart shaped cookie cutter to make individual cakes for my sweethearts and my Valentines Day dessert. He loves white cake and really enjoyed this recipe. Thank you Carol!
