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.

Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
Have made this 2x now. This is a keeper. Nice to have ribs all year around! I am going to use this method to pre-cook my ribs in the summer before grilling. The meat falls right off the bones and I love how lots of the fat cooks off in the crockpot!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
The only adjustment I made was to add an extra package of Italian dressing mix and I threw in one sliced green pepper since I had one on hand. Tastes just like the Italian beef that we get in the restaurant. It was a hit!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
Served at a family New Years Day gathering as an alternative to traditional red chili. Everyone who tried it raved about it. Doubled the recipe with these modifications: used 1 can of jalapeno and 2 cans of green chilis (heat was just right) and 4 cans of white beans vs. 6. Pureed one of the 4 cans of beans to thicken up the consistency. Finally, we added some cilantro. Other than that, every other ingredient was doubled. Prepared the day before in the crockpot and let cook for 5 hours, then reheated on the day of the party. Served with shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped scallions and cilantro.

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.

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!

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!

Sweet Party Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2015
Everyone loves this mix. I didn't have dark corn syrup so I made the following substitutions and it still turned out great - light corn syrup and dark brown sugar instead of dark syrup and light br sugar. I also added the following after reading other reviews: butter pretzels, dry roasted peanuts and M&M's at the very end so they didn't melt.

Tortilla Rollups IV

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I made these to take to a party last night and they were devoured quickly. I added a couple of things based on other reviews. Added 1/2 package of Hidden Valley Ranch mix and a little taco seasoning as well (did not measure). I also added 3 chopped green onions. I served with some salsa for optional dipping, but they were good all by themselves. Will make again for sure!

Balela Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2015
Perfect as is! I do hold the tomatoes out until I am ready to eat the salad. That way it lasts longer in the refrigerator.

Pot Roast with Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2014
Wouldn't change a thing! i had to hurry the meal up a bit so I modified the cook time (and temp). The meat was very tender even cooking at 325 vs. 300. Here's what I did: preheated the oven @ 375, then lowered it to 325 and let it cook for about 3 1/2 hours before adding the carrots. To help the potatoes along, I removed them after about 20 min in the oven and microwaved them for about 4-5 min. just before serving. The kitchen smelled so good!

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
Fast and easy to make. I didn't measure anything. Just used my own judgement with the garlic powder, salt and Parmesean cheese. It turned out great. Wouldn't hesitate to serve this to company.

Won Ton Wrapper Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
This is my husband's absolute favorite appetizer. I can't go to a party without making these - and they always get rave reviews (especially from the pickier men). The recipe I have been using all of these years is a little different. It calls for SHARP cheddar cheese in addition to the Monterey Jack and also adds chopped red pepper. Sometimes I cut down the amount of ranch dressing. The filling mixture does freeze well, so you can make ahead then thaw and bake when needed.

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.)

Fish in Foil

Reviewed: May 15, 2012
I love to hear "You can make this again, Mom"! That is what my 14 year old said. I don't hear that often. Made it with Tilapia and also had some Hake (like Cod) left in the freezer. It was great with both kinds of fish. This is a keeper!

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!
