Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
This is the best split pea soup that I have ever made. I substituted chicken broth for the water and added a honey baked ham bone. You can never have too much ham in split pea soup. I layered it and cooked it in the slow cooker. It was so delicious that I never even added the milk. A wonderful effortless recipe! Definitely a keeper.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
This is the best key lime ever - and so easy. I overbaked my a little. I cooked it for 15 minutes because I did not see the little bubbles on the top. The pie was delicious and sliced beautifully, but I think it would have been creamier if I had cooked it a little less.

Quick Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
This is a great quick and easy recipe. If you have a chance, watch the video, it offers some great prep tips. I made it as per the recipe with one exception. I did not want to open a bottle of wine, so I deglazed the pan with chicken broth instead. Delicious!

A Simply Perfect Roast Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Great way to roast a turkey! I have a roasting pan with a lid. I roasted the turkey with the lid on for the first two hours and then removed the lid for the last part of the cooking time. I rubbed the turkey with butter and added chicken broth to the pan as per the directions. I did not bother with basting the turkey while I had the lid on. I did baste about every 30 minutes after I removed the lid. The result was a very moist bird with beautiful crisp skin. One other suggestion, I like to buy a fresh bird whenever possible.

Authentic Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
Fabulose! I will definitely repeat this one. I followed the recipe pretty closely. I did not have the lime leaves, but I did add the zest from an entire lime. I also subed ginger. I used about 1-1/2 teasponns of red curry paste instead of curry powder. The red paste has ginger and lime flavors and adds a nice bit of zip. Can't wait to make this again.

Pennsylvania Coal Region Barbecue

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
Great weeknight dinner. I used 1/2 regular ketchup and 1/2 hot and spicy ketchup because that is what I had on hand. Delicious, easy supper. Served with pickles, fresh corn. Chips would have been nice, but didn't want the calories, so I made a salad.

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
I followed the advice of others and brushed the fish with a bit of mayo instead of the egg white. I also drizzled a bit of olive oil on the bread crumbs to make it more moist. Baked in a convection oven and the end result was excellent. Great family dinner, but you could even serve this for a casual get together.

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
Excellent way to prepare corned beef. Used a Staub pot instead of foil and baked in a 300 oven for about 6 hours. Rubbed some extra pickling spice and added couple cloves of garlic to the pot. Cooked vegetables separate and added a bit of water to the pot. Delicious! Will never boil corned beef again.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
Excellent and moist but not too dense. Added only 3 large, but very ripe bananas. More banana will make the bread denser. This quantity kept the texture of the bread "cake like" and a bit on the lighter side. Definitely a keeper.

Pollo Mediterranean

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
Excellent!!! This is a delicious and easy way to prepare chicken and pasta. I followed the recipe except I subbed veg broth for the wine as I didn't have an open bottle. I served this over 1/2 lb. of farfalle pasta and the ratio of pasta to sauce was just about perfect. Another good thing is that even though this is a creamy pasta dish, the calorie count is reasonable. This is because milk and sour cream are used in the sauce instead of the cream that would typically be used. You won't miss the cream a bit. The sauce is wonderful. This is definitely a keeper.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Thanks to you and your grandmother my search for a delicious corn bread will stop here. It helped to read your clarification on preparation. Thanks to the reviews and other's comments, I mixed the batter in one skillet (only until combined) and then transfered the batter to a preheated cast iron skillet. It was the best!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Thanks for a great recipe. I followed this pretty closely. Cooked country style ribs in beef broth for about 6 hours. At that point the pork was very tender but still had texture. I combined Austin's Own Chipolte and Sweet Baby Rays Sauces for the last step. This was a good combination of sweet and hot. This could be a great prepare ahead meal. My southern hubby thought it was as good as any pulled pork that he has ever had and he has had a lot!

Chicken In Basil Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This is a "company worthy" meal that is easy enough to make for your family on a week night. I made this exactly like the recipe, except, I boiled the chicken stock for about 4 minutes to reduce it. I also simmered the sauce for about 5 minutes after adding the cream to allow the sauce to reduce additionally. Fresh basil really adds to the flavor. Thanks for a fabulous meal!

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
Outstanding. Made this for the hubby and me last night. Restaurant quality meal and definitely company worthy. I cooked it a little longer than stated, but I took it right out of the fridge. Definitely will repeat this one.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
This was very good. I made a few changes based on the suggestions of others. I omitted flouring the chicken breasts. I pounded them flat before cooking so that they would cook more evenly. I used sliced portabello mushrooms and just a little bit less (1 TBS) of the balsamic vinegar. Nice flavor. Great quick and easy recipe for chicken breasts.

Easy Olive Martini Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
This was a great chicken breast recipe. I doubled the sauce as others suggested. The chicken was very flavorful and olives were a wonderful addition. I will definitely repeat this one.

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This is a great quick and easy dinner on a chilly night. I used the entire package of Hot Italian sausage and about twice as much spinach as the recipe called for. The soup was very satisfying with just a little kick. The condensed milk gives it just the right creaminess. Served with a loaf of crusty Italian bread, olive oil and cheese. Wonderful!

Pork Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
It is just wonderful when something so delicious is so quick and easy. I made this with pork tenderloin and marsala. I followed the directions almost exactly. I may have let is simmer a few extra minutes to thicken the sauce. Great dinner, will definitely repeat.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
This was a great meal. I made some modifications. I shredded a store roasted chicken into a bowl. I added some chopped onion, sour cream, canned chilies and cheese. Then I realized that I only had a few tortillas. Ugh! I poured a couple tablespoons of a canned Mexican Enchilada red sauce into the bottom of my casserole. I spread half of the chicken mixture. I topped this with some shredded cheese and additional sauce and then repeated the layers. The top layer was just tortillas with sauce and a little cheese. I may have saved a few calories using fewer tortillas. End result was delicious.
