Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
Excellent recipe! Best spaghetti and meatballs I've ever made. I think not baking the meatballs before putting them in the sauce made them more moist. I altered the recipe as a few others suggested, and substituted one can of whole tomatoes, one can of crushed tomatoes, one small can of sauce, and the tomato paste for the tomato ingredients as listed in the recipe. Another change I made was to cut the salt in half. Even a teaspoon seemed like a lot to me and in the future I'd try a half a teaspoon. Most canned tomatoes have plenty of salt in them, unless you are lucky and can find the low sodium kind. I also think the 1/4 cup of oil could be reduced to a two tablespoons, if desired. I will try that next time. Also, after sauteing the onions and garlic, I put all of the other ingredients together and simmered them for a bit. Then, since I didn't have enough time to simmer on the stove, I just popped everything in the crock pot on low and left it for three hours so I could go out. The meatballs were cooked and everything was delicious. Great recipe!

Herbed Mushrooms with White Wine

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
We enjoyed this recipe. I made a couple of changes because I didn't have all the ingredients in stock. I used red wine instead of white wine and it was still tasty. I added onions to bulk it up since I didn't have enough mushrooms (used baby bella), and I used basil, oregano, and black pepper since I didn't have italian seasoning. I found mine took longer to cook than what was stated on the recipe, but the family liked it. I would make it again.

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
I thought this made an excellent chowder and my husband and two daughters agreed. I made a few changes based on other reviewers' comments. We like a lot of flavor, so I added 1 tsp parsley, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1.5 tsp of the bay seasoning. I think I will try 1tbs of the bay seasoning next time. I also increased the celery to 3 stalks, used a whole small onion (chopped), and put in half a container of baby bella mushrooms (sliced). I used fat free evaporated milk and 2 tbs of olive oil instead of the butter to help cut some calories. Everyone still thought it was rich enough, but it definitely did not have the richness of chowder from a restaurant because of the removed fat, I'm sure. Next time I will probably add even more celery and mushrooms. The amount of potatoes was perfect. The cod worked wonderfully in this recipe. We did sprinkle store bought bacon bits over the top when it was completed and it was a nice touch. I might try a dab of hot sauce added next time right before serving as someone else suggested.

Ziti Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2012
This turned out well. I made a few alterations based on what I had read in other folks' reviews. First, instead of using butter, I sauted the garlic in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Next, instead of using the heavy cream I substituted a can of cream of chicken soup and added 1/2 cup of fat free half and half. I upped the parmesean cheese to 1/2 cup by accident, but I liked the result. Also, instead of using cornstarch, I just put in one tablespoon of flour. I added 1/4 tsp thyme and oregano to the sauce. I also coated the chicken in oregano and pepper and baked it at 400 for about 30 minutes and did not bread it or fry it. Finally, I added diced tomatoes and black olives cut in half. Very tasty!

Pizza Crust for the Bread Machine II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
This recipe was fantastic! I've made a lot of pizza doughs, and this was the best. It must be the dry powdered milk that is making the difference. I did find that it wouldn't double, though, in my bread maker. I ended up having to knead it by hand.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I made some revisions to the recipe and I was very happy. I used 1/2 cup chicken broth instead of water, used a jar of chicken gravy, added celery, carrots, doubled the garlic, sauted the garlic and onion with the chicken, and added 1/2 tsp rosemary, parsely, and oregano, plus I put Mrs. Dash on the chicken/onion/garlic mixture during the sauteing. I also cut the apples into very large pieces so they wouldn't get too mushy. I left out the onion soup mix. Turned out very well.

Bread Machine Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I did not care for this recipe. I make bread in my bread machine all the time, and it is always better than this. Maybe it needs more yeast? The bread was terribly dense and small and tough. Avoid.

Slow Cooker Rosemary and Red Pepper Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
My whole family loved this meal, and we have two very picky eaters. Because when I went to the liquor store I couldn't remember if I needed dry vermouth or sweet vermouth, I ended up buying sweet vermouth on the clerk's recommendation. He said dry vermouth will dry out a recipe, but sweet vermouth will make it moist. It certainly worked! Awesome meal.
