Red Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
As with other reviewers, I chopped up the veggies before cooking them. In order to "sell" my husband on a salad that contains beets I boiled the beets separately so the red color wouldn't bleed onto the rest of the vegetables in the cooking process. I cooked the beets for 30 mins and the carrots and potatoes for 20.

Simple Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
I've got more swiss chard from my garden than I can eat, and this recipe was a new and delicious way to eat some of it up. I followed the recipe exactly.

2-Bean Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
This is a very easy and delicious chili. Before making this I considered the reviews of other readers and decided to puree half a pickled jalapeno into the tomato sauce and add a splash of worchestire sauce. I also sauted the onion and beef mixture with minced garlic.

Caramel Frosting I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Easy, delicious recipe. I used cream initially, but had to add a little milk to make it thin enough to spread. Yum!

White Bean 'N' Barley Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Soaking the beans overnight ensures that they will be adequately cooked. Use a high quality broth to ensure good flavor - I use homemade vegetable broth as a base and it makes all the difference in the overall flavor.

BUSH'S® Three Bean Confetti Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I doubled the recipe in order to be able to use whole cans of beans instead of just halves, as the recipe calls for. The avocado really made this recipe unique and tasty.

South of the Border Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I make this salad on a regular basis, especially in the winter when other salad fixings are out of season. I often add celery to add extra crunch.

Roasted Spicy Mustard Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
After reading other reviewer comments, I decided to halve the recipe and make it in the microwave. There was no problem with burning and the dish came out fairly moist. I also added sliced green onions.

Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
Awesome recipe! Sauce was easy and quick to make, and the skewers cooked in a flash on the grill. The longest part was waiting for the coals to heat up!

Candy-Coated Milk Chocolate Pieces Cookies II

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
Great recipe. Cookies won't turn out flat if you are careful to not melt the butter - just soften it.

Balsamic Pea Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
I fed this to my fiance who apparently doesn't like peas and he ate the whole thing. I wasn't trying to trick him into liking peas, but he tried it and liked it. As with other reviewers, I used less mayo.

Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
Outstanding! I forgot to buy cotija cheese, so I compensated by simply salting the salad to my taste. I also added some minced garlic - nothing beats the mixture of cilantro, lime and garlic!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Great recipe, I wouldn't change a thing! I've made this recipe twice with the three eggplants listed in the ingredients and both times have ended up filling two 9x13 pans. It doesn't bother me, the leftovers are great too.

BUSH'S® Best Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
This is a great colorful salad that I have made several times. I found myself adding a second can of black beans in order to balance out all the peppers.

I'm a huge fan of the chickpea, but thought this salad lacked flavor.

Garlicky Green Beans with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Delicious! Green beans weren't in season when I made this recipe so I used frozen and it still turned out great.
