Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
So good. I hasten the roasting time by boiling my potatoes for about 10-15 minutes. This was a last minute side for the steaks with bleu cheese. I originally was going to make sweet potato fries but they went bad so I decided to make these. I also added a little bit of melted butter just before they were done and tossed them with a tiny bit more of salt. I could easily eat the entire tray . Thanks for sharing.

Banana Praline Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly as it is written. I used mini mini muffin tins. I baked the first batch at 350 degrees because I was afraid my oven would burn them but they didn't rise as nicely as the second batch that I baked at 400 degrees. Very easy to make. My 8 year old helped me put them in the tins and add the praline topping. Delicious. I was hesitant about the 1 tblspn of sour cream but it worked out fine in the end. Thanks for sharing

Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
The best. Hard to believe such an easy recipe can yield such a wonderful dish. I added broccoli as well b/c I didn't have a whole lot of cauliflower. I accidentally overcooked my cauliflower and brocolli and it stil turned out wonderful. I will definetely be making this again and again. Next time I will keep a better eye on the steamer. I also may sprinkle some bread crumbs next time and throw it in the broiler for a little crunch. Thanks for sharing !

Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Love this soup. I used my leftover beef from Marie's Easy Slow cooker pot roast from AR website. I shredded about 2 cups and followed this recipe to an almost T. I used 3/4 of a cup of barley. Not the quick cooking kind. I couldn't find that one. I think I could have gotten away with doing the whole cup of barley but per previous reviewers I was nervous to use the whole cup. Very tasty soup. My Mom who HATES soups ate this. Do not add any additional salt. The beef broth has enough salt. My beef had bits of mushroom in it from the pot roast recipe but it all worked out in the end. You won't be disappointed. Thanks for sharing.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I've made this soup about 5 times and each time except for once I doubled the cheese amount. The one time I forgot to put 2 lbs of cheese the soup turned out awful. I'll never forget to double the cheese again. This is such a great soup. I love the broccoli cheese soup from Panera Bread and this one is just as good if not better. Thanks for sharing

Eggplant Mixed Grill

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Very good combination of flavors. I quadrupled the marinade because I had a ton of veggies to marinade. I used asparagus, eggplant, red onion, red bell pepper and portobello mushrooms (sliced). The only thing I omitted was the fresh basil. Not because I didn't have any but because I was too lazy to walk out to the garden to pick it. LOL ! Absolutely delicious. I marinated my veggies for over 24 hours because I was trying to do as much prep work for Father's Day without having to spend the entire day cooking. The veggies held up really well and the eggplant really absorbed a nice flavor from marinating for so long. Thanks for sharing.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I Doubled the recipe and served the sandwiches with bleu cheese dressing. I used to make sandwich similar to this only I didn't make it in a slow cooker or shred them. This version is much easier. The best part was throwing the chicken in frozen. No need to defrost the breasts. I used a 3lb package which gave me 8 breasts. Thanks Made this again recently. With the leftover I used it to make Buffalo Chicken Dip from this recipe. Thanks again for the recipe !

B.L.A.T. Wraps

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
Delicious. I didn't feel like making these in a wrap so I used seeded italian Bread. I also used Hidden Valley's spicy ranch. Hidden Valley's Spicy Ranch is my new favorite dressing !! I can't say enough good things about this. I plan on using this dressing for taco salad. Thanks for sharing

Crunchy Berry Parfaits

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
These were so good. I made my own granola. My kids helped put the parfaits together and they loved it. There's no need to add any sugar to the berries. These can be assembled and hold up pretty well in the fridge for a couple of hours in the event you are doing a brunch and need to make other things. Will make again !

Beef Steaks With Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Delicious. I grilled my steaks as well and I made the butter/blue cheese mixture the day before and let the flavors marry in the fridge for over 24 hours. I also made homemade garlic croutons (from AR site) as my daughter Abby ate the whole bag I bought to use for this recipe. :)

Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
Very good and easy to make. I followed the advice of previous reviewers and used chicken broth instead of water. I also used heavy cream in place of some of the milk. I pureed about 4 cups in the blender to make it creamier. I added some whole sweet corn to give the chowder more texture. Before serving I garnished with a dollop of sour cream, cheddar cheese and some bacon. Very good. I made about 12 servings so I could have leftovers. Thanks for sharing !

White Bean Fennel Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Super easy and delicious. I sauteed the onions with about 4 small cloves of garlic in some olive oil. I also threw in some finely chopped celery (about 2 of the tender stalks) I chopped the fennel finely and added it to the pot. Added the tomatoes (without draining) and cooked a few more minutes. Added 2 Cans of white beans and then I added the broth (About 6 cups). I pressure cooked it for about 10 minutes and then once it was done I added some frozen spinach (about 2 cups) and 1 can of sliced carrots. This soup was sooo good. Not boring at all. The fennel blended in very well. It did not over power the soup. We are big soup eaters in our home and everyone loved this one, even my 8 year old. I will certainly be making this again. This soup can be topped with a little parmesan or a drizzle of olive oil. You can also add some small pasta such as ditalini to make it a bit heartier. Edit~ I've made this many many more times and have experimented with adding different veggies to this...zucchini, peas and escarole and it is always fabulous ! (4/26/2011)

Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
Very good and super easy. This is a great recipe to make ahead of time and you just pop it in the oven. I used leftover shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken we had the day before. I also added one can of condensed cheddar cheese soup in with 3 cans of enchilada sauce. I dip the tortillas in the enchilada sauce first and then fill and roll up. It makes it easier to roll the corn tortillas, since they tend to crack if you don't do that. I also added one can of black beans to the chicken mixture. It stretched the chicken and made more enchiladas. Next time I will also add a can of corn (drained). We have a big family so stretching our dollar is very important. I topped with the remainin enchilada sauce and cheddar cheese and baked. When they came out of the oven we served with sour cream and hot sauce. You can also garnish with olives and green onion. This is a go to recipe when I need to either make a quick meal or I need to make meals ahead of time in the event we're having a busy week.

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Wow ! This was amazing. I made 2 lbs of asparagus and there was not one left ! The balsamic adds such a nice flavor to the asparagus. I tossed my asparagus with the oil, salt and pepper and cooked in the oven first for a little bit per other reviewers suggestion. After about 8 minutes I added 2 cloves of garlic grated and then I added the grated parmesan cheese. Left in for just a minute or two longer took out and then drizzled the balsamic over all. So good. My mouth is watering as I write this review. Thank you.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Wow, Wow, Wow,...I've been making zucchini bread for about 15 years. This is by far the best recipe I've come across. I followed it to an absolute T. I made 1 loaf with it and the rest of the batter I made into mini mini muffins. My kids devoured the muffins within minutes of making it. This recipe is awesome. Very moist and I will be making this super simple tasty bread again. I did add brown sugar to the tops of the loaf and muffins before throwing it in the oven. Thank You !!!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
This is the first time I've made a pecan pie that didn't require Karo syrup. Guess what? This one is waaaaay better ! Easy and delicious. It reminds me of a pecan pie that my husband and I had many years ago at a restaurant and I could never duplicate it. Until now! Thanks.

Swanson® Ultimate Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
These mashed potatoes were delicious. I was afraid that the potatoes might come out salty but they didn't at all. I also didn't add any bacon because we were having these with baked pork chops. Very delicious. Will definetely use this recipe again. Thanks.
