Cherry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This was the first recipe I tried in my new ice cream maker! It came out good. I made some substitutions to make it semi-lowfat. I used sugar substitute, fat free milk with butter instead of heavy cream (I didn't have any) and fat free greek yogurt. I used fresh cherries and boiled down cherry juice to a quarter cup. Then I used my immersion blender to mix it all up before pouring it into the ice cream maker. I kept some big chunks of cherries in there. It turns a pretty pink color and was not quite as creamy as ice cream, but with my substitutions I didn't expect it to be. I added chocolate chips based on others suggestions, but it didn't need them at all. This has an excellent flavor as is. Good recipe, thanks!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
This was a great meal! I didn't use beer, we're not really drinkers and I don't like the seasoning packet. I just threw in 4 beef bullion cubes, onion, carrots, potatoes & the meat. I came home from work and it was all perfectly cooked and the meat was moist. I ended up throwing the cabbage in the microwave with some of the juices because I couldn't wait the hour for it to cook! I will definitely make this again.

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
This was my first time trying quinoa. I thought the dish was on the plain side, but good. My husband said that it tasted too much like Italian dressing. I don't think I'll make this again.

Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
This was very good. I did cook the rice separately in the 2 cups of broth. I used olive oil instead of bacon & drippings. I didn't have celery or pepper and left out the ham. Still excellent as is. I used medium sized shrimp.

Fruit Sherbet

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Yummy! I was so anxious to make this last night even though I didn't have the orange or pineapple juices & it still was great. I had some over ripe peaches & juiced them making a 1/2 cup & added the lemon juice. I only used 1 cup of sugar. It is very tangy & refreshing. I'm looking forward to trying different juice combinations.

California Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Loved it! I love avocado and this was an awesome way to change up chicken. I marinated the chicken in Italian dressing for about an hour before hand. My husband isn't an avocado fan, so I put some bacon on his instead. He enjoyed that equally well. I didn't bother putting it in the oven, just assembled and covered the pan for a few minutes to let the cheese melt. Turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Great Recipe! Easy to follow. I scaled it down for 2. This was my first time cooking fish and it came out wonderful. I did add some garlic powder, salt and peppered to the fillets when I first put them in. I added some breadcrumbs to the topping as someone suggested. I'll definitely be making this often. Thanks for the recipe!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
These were pretty good. I agree with another reviewer who said to skip the onions. I had chopped them and sprinkled throughout, but still wish I had skipped them.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
This is a good black bean soup that has potential to be great! It could rival the soup of a local Mexican restaurant that I love with a few changes. I love veggies and added green pepper, celery and mushrooms as well. Don't skip sauteing, it adds to the flavor. I also used soaked, dried black beans, chicken stock and diced tomatoes, not stewed because that's what I had. I didn't puree the soup, but I used a potato masher to thicken it up a bit at the end. I added some hot sauce, but diced up jalapenos would also bring some good heat. I added some Worcestershire sauce too. The soup definitely needs to cook longer than 10-15 min. I just let it cook, stirring occasionally, until it was the nice thick consistency I was looking for. No need for cheese & sour cream if you let it cook and let the flavors meld. It is soooo yummy!

Hearty Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
This was an awesome recipe, perfect for a -14 degree night here in Central NY! I added a package of andouille sausage in addition to the kielbasa for a more traditional taste. I also added chicken bouillon as others suggested. It has excellent flavor. I served it over brown rice.

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I LOVE Buffalo Chicken, but I did not care for these burgers at all. They fell apart on the George Foreman even after adding breadcrumbs. I'll stick to regular turkey burgers and buffalo chicken.

Salsa Cube Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I thought it was a good easy recipe, but my husband wasn't crazy about it. It definitely benefits from cheddar cheese on top. I'll probably stick with my usual cube steak recipe.

3-Cheese Stromboli

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
Awesome! You can't screw this up, it's very easy and versatile. I just used my best judgment with the sauce, added pepperoni, onions and mushrooms. I didn't have provolone, so I skipped it. Turned out great. Sliced up and dipped in sauce. Will make again soon.

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
This was really good, quick, tasty and easy. 1/2 tsp. red pepper was definitely enough. I added spinach and served over pasta. Will make again.

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
This is an awesome recipe for blue cheese lovers. I'm not a big fan of pork chops, but the hubby likes them. I saute some onions in the butter before putting well seasoned chops in the pan. Deglaze those good bits. I don't use the heavy whipping cream, but use nonfat sour cream, a container of stella blue cheese crumbles, some bottled blue cheese dressing and sliced mushrooms. I serve it with rice and broccoli. Watch the family clean their plates!

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Great recipe! Spareribs were on sale, but hubby isn't a big fan of bbq sauce, but I remembered seeing this recipe, so I tried it. I am sooo glad that I did! The ribs had such great flavor and they fell right off the bone they were so tender. There was still a lot of liquid after an hour, so I strained out some of it and used it to cook up some rice. The rice was amazing as well! I can't wait to try this with other meats. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Good stew! It was really easy. I just threw my favorite veggies in the pot, sliced up some italian bread and it was ready when I got home. I even used new potatoes so I didn't have to peel. I threw in baby carrots, corn, mushrooms and stewed tomatoes. Thanks for the recipe, I'll definately make this again!
