Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
Wow! Fantastic flavors, ingredients are easily adjusted to your taste/availability. I used what I had around the house- dried blk beans, soaked then cooked in broth and spice; sauteed onions & carrots, mixed with brown rice and spice and broth (45 min); about half a lb each ground turkey & turkey bacon with spices; added some corn, and served on a bed of spinach topped with toasted sesame seeds. Since I used the spices in each element seperately, who KNOWS how much I used, lol! Since it received rave reviews from my kids- 4, 8 &10- as well as adults, it must be a keeper!! Thanks so much for a new twist on beans and rice.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
I wanted to make the Fast Chicken Soup Base from this site but I didn't have a roasted chicken laying around. I DID have some chicken leg quarters and half breasts with skin and bone, so I used 2 breasts and one leg with this recipe. Instead of rubbing the outside of the skin with Country Crock, I treated it like a turkey and pulled the skin away from the meat and added spices and butter in the "pockets." When it came out of the oven, I almost changed my mind! The skin was so crisp and flavorful that I couldnt sacrifice it to the soup stock, and that was fine because I added all of the cooking juices and bones instead. I can't wait to try this again, and there is plenty of room to adjust spices for different tastes. Thanks so much!!

Daddy's Popcorn

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
WOW! I have been strictly microwave for years now, but wanted to make our own for the kids to try, and I know I picked the right instructions here! I didn't actually measure the butter(well, country crock) or the salt, but everything came out great. Thanks so much!

Cheesy Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Made this for dinner tonight- a huge hit! Called it "country breakfast in a bowl" and the kids gave it 5 stars and went back for more. I did use turkey bacon (which I removed after frying, diced up and threw back in with the cheese), added garlic and paprika and a mix of cheddar and jack cheeses ( way more than called for, lol). Since turkey bacon doesnt add grease, I used a bit of olive oil and it was not too greasy at all. Wonderful idea! Thanks so much

Mushroom and Swiss Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
i was already making burgandy mushrooms when i found this recipe to go with it. Because of that, i chose to top the chicken with a sprinkling of chopped frozen spinach and swiss, but otherwise, followed the recipe. It was wonderful!! kids (2-9) and hubby have already asked for it again! Thanks so much

Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Made this for Thanksgiving multifamily get together and everyone just loooved them! they didnt have the super gooeyness of a traditional pecan pie, but all the flavor which made it even better to me! One thing I did differently was to not add the pecans to the mixture before pouring- instead I scooped a small amt of pecans in each shell then poured the mix over it. Absolutely wonderful! Thanks

Ellen's Buffalo Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
ok, i intended to make this exactly as written, but- OOPS!- i screwed up! i wasn't paying attention and added a whole can of diced tomatoes. i quickly scrambled and threw in extra breadcrumbs (as i didn't have multigrain bread) and hoped for the best. My hubby and kids ate it all, and begged for more asap! thanks so much for the recipe, and know it is fairly foolproof!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
Can't believe i forgot to rate this b4! Tried this recipe about 6 months back, and hubby announced he wouldn't have them any other way. The burnt/crispy parts are best- i halve them as well. Fresh or frozen work- in Alaska, we take what we can get ;) All 3 kids looove them and ask for them, so what could be better than that?! Thank you so very much!!

I have now had heaven on earth! lol- way less mess then in a pan, and I could do a double batch to feed everyone ( and then some). It was fantastic, esp with the Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Thanks so very much!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I used a variety of frozen berries and let them thaw in advance. I then made both the dip and the chips the day before, and - wow- it was awesome! My hubby had doubts about the apples, but he was its biggest fan. Thanks for the tip about baking in the mini muffin pan- pure genius!

Coq au Vin alla Italiana

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
WOW! kids, adults- we all loved it and it made a great hearty meal. I substituted smoked turkey sausage for the sweet italian (I don't eat pork) and served with egg noodles. Next time I will make mashed potatoes to soak up more of the incredible sauce! Thanks for sharing ;)

We live in Alaska and this has become a favorite during the winter. I substitute ground turkey for the hamburger and throw in whatever veggies we have on hand and the flavor is wonderful. Anything this good and easy that can make 3 kids and adults happy gets 5 stars!!

Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
When I made these the first time, they were very bland and somewhat dry. I ended up freezing most, so I gave the leftovers a makeover when they thawed. I made cuts in each piece then coated them with a vodka sauce and sprinkled mozz cheese and baked until heated thru. It was much better this way.
