Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
This is a great recipe! Some friends gave us a huge bag of apples from their tree and here was the solution for using them up. Very tasty and very simple. Will try this topping with cherry pie filling sometime. I'm sure that would be wonderful too!

Layered Macaroni Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
This was okay - not great. I think my family likes the old fashioned Johnny Marzetti that I have made in the past better. JM was just as much work, but much tastier. I did make one substitution. We didn't have any elbow macaroni in the house so I used wide egg noodles. I'm not sure the outcome would've been much different if I'd used macaroni instead. I wouldn't suggest noodles though - unless you undercook them a little.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
Very good basic pesto recipe! I cut the salt down after reading other reviews. Tossed with pasta and added sun dried tomatoes as another reviewer suggested. Thanks for the recipe! I'm going to try it with sunflower kernels next time to see how that tastes.

Smothered Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
After having "melt in your mouth" beef short ribs at a restaurant, I thought I'd try making some for my family. I can't fault the recipe, but I was so bummed that after all of the effort and time spent, there was not much flavor to what little meat I could get from the ribs. (I think I bought quality meat - from a local specialty market). Mine was mostly fat or fatty meat. The aroma coming from the stovetop was wonderful, but unfortunately, the meal was not. I might try this same recipe with a pot roast and put in my slow cooker.

Marinara Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
This marinara sauce reminded me of what you'd find in an italian restaurant! I had a plum tomatoe that was starting to shrivel up, so I chopped it up and threw that in. An easy sauce recipe that's a keeper.

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
Full of flavor! I used 4 cups of Yin Yang vegetable blend from Market Day in place of the cabbage, red bell pepper and sugar snap peas. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Will make again and again.

Southwest Chicken Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
Tasty! I made the salad dressing the night before. Increased the amount by half so I could marinate the chicken breast tenders overnight before grilling them on the stove in a grill pan. To give the dressing a little more kick, I cut the chili powder in half and added chipolte pepper . Added some corn leftover from corn on the cob and left out the chips and Parmesan b/c I didn't think the salad needed it. All of my guests loved it!

Light Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
My husband and kids thought that there was too much lemon flavor - and I only used 1/4 cup of lemon juice vs. the 1/2 listed in the ingredients list. I thought it was good though!

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Scaled down the recipe for 4 servings. Added 1T of cooking sherry to the sauce and since I had sliced American cheese singles on hand, I cutup 8 slices, adding ALL of the cheese to the sauce mixture. As others recommended, I topped with bread crumbs and parm. cheese during the last 10 minutes of baking. Although my family didn't care for it (they aren't all that into casseroles :( ), I thought it was tasty! Good comfort food!

Italian Sausage and Peppers with Penne

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I've made this recipe twice now (with two variations) and we liked it both times. The first time I used green pepper and all sausage, adding garlic powder and red pepper flakes to the recipe. This week, I used a red pepper instead of green (which I preferred) and since I didn't have enough sausage, I improvised with some lean ground beef. It was great either way. I think the garlic powder and red pepper flakes give it some kick. (Note: I used Target's Market Pantry traditional mariniara sauce b/c it was on sale for $.77! It was just as good as the Name Brand.)

Blue Cheese and Dried Cranberry Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I made this for our family Christmas dinner. The only thing that I omitted was the cucumber - I didn't see how that would enhance the flavor of the salad with the blue cheese and toasted pecans. I used Paul Newman's Light Cranberry Walnut dressing. I think next time I would use a balsamic vinaigrette instead and add a little purple/red onion for a little more kick. Will definately make a again as it was a beautiful salad for the holiday! Thanks for the recipe!
