Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
My husband liked this more than I did, but it was nice and easy to make. I did add green pepper and doubled the cheese as others recommended. I think an important thing to remember about this recipe is to use the chicken breast, if you get the canned with the dark meat it is not as good.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
I did not use the canola oil, because the chorizo has enough fat. Also, I added cumin and a lot of paprika, per another reviewer. This is like a chili, perfect for this cold snap we're having.

Texas Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2013
This was really easy to make, that's always a plus. I would recommend cooking the chicken breast whole, then slicing after it is cooled to keep it juicy. Also, I just made the quesadillas in the skillet with a touch of oil. It makes a nice golden brown quesadilla. Heat the skillet with a touch of oil, meanwhile, top half of a tortilla with 1/8 of the chicken filling and it's portion of the cheese. When oil is hot, lay the filled tortilla into the skillet and immediately fold empty half of tortilla over filled half, hold in place with a spatula for about 20 seconds. Brown tortilla on each side for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Also, I noticed some reviewers did not care for the barbecue sauce. I would caution the use of a sweet sauce, because the onions already have a nice sweetness with the honey. Use a more savory sauce. I used Famous Dave's Rich & Sassy.

Russian Vinaigrette Beet Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2013
I have been wanting to make more recipes from my heritage and this sounded really good. However, more seasoning and oil is in order here. Also, I do not like the texture of the marinated mushrooms in this dish. The recipe does make a good amount, and we intend to eat it and not waste it, but this recipe is certainly not my favorite.

Marinated Mushroom and Eggplant with Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
Yummy! I changed a few things, though. I did use white button mushrooms, because there were no crimini available. Also, I did not cook the garlic for the marinade and I marinaded for 1 day. In order for your eggplant to come out perfectly, remember to sweat the eggplant first, then it will shed its water and absorb marinade much better. The peanut sauce is super good. There was a lot left over, so I added a little water to thin out slightly, and mixed the leftover sauce in with some hot cooked egg noodles, and topped with soy sauce and sriracha. You can cut up any leftover eggplant and mushrooms and add to the pasta, too.

Garlic Butter Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
I had smaller squash, so I cut down on the cooking time. I think next time I would use garlic powder instead of fresh so it can spread better.

Broccoli Crawfish Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
Had lots of fresh broccoli from mom and dad's garden to use. I did make this as written (crawfish included). I did use beef broth instead of chicken and cajun spice instead of creole. Really yummy, filling meal.

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
Quite good. I made it exactly as written. Great way to use up extra plain yogurt.

Grandpa Gunn's Raw Veggie Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
The dip was okay. I would skip the curry powder next time, it doesn't make sense to me flavor wise. Served with zucchini and summer squash sticks, baby carrots, and green pepper slices.

Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
Yummy quesadillas! I used sliced baby bella mushrooms. Also, I would skip 2 steps in the directions. It is not necessary to "cook the spinach according to package" and you do not need to melt the cheese in the oven. I served with guacamole and sour cream.

Shannon's Lower Fat Chile Relleno

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
This turned out really well. I would recommend using poblano peppers and also seasoning the chicken with salt and pepper. Oh yeah, I had the pan foiled for 45 minutes and uncovered for 10. Real good and real easy.

Broccoli Cheese Soup VI

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
I added more cheese as per other reviews. Also, I used turkey stock, added a packet of onion soup mix, some english rib rub, more pepper, and 1/2 lb of frozen corn. Turned out well.

Muriel's Turnip Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2013
I like this recipe, but I had to somewhat alter the original. I reduced the 6 tbls butter to 4 tbls, make sure you are using unsalted butter. I did not put butter on the top at the end, didn't seem necessary. Also, I increased the eggs to 3 and doubled the bread crumbs. I did reduce the salt, but I could have reduced it even more. I am wondering if the recipe meant to say 1 teaspoon salt, not tablespoon.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
I used plain yogurt instead of the sour cream and reduced the butter by a couple of tablespoons. Also, I did not use the slow cooker. Came out really delicious.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
Who doesn't love tomato based soups? The only changes I made was to used fresh green beans (from my mom's garden), concentrated stock, a small amount of sugar, and some saurkraut (on another reviewer's advice). Yum! You can serve over linguine, too.

Thyme Green Beans with Almonds

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
This was awesome. Fresh green beans from my mother's garden. You have to use fresh thyme or it just isn't the same.

Stacey's Fabulous Broccoli Fritters

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2013
Just okay. I added some salt and some flour, too, because the cornmeal alone wasn't binding the way I wanted it to. I used frozen broccoli and thawed and strained it first. I served them with spicy ketchup.
