Apple Dumplings with Rich Cinnamon Sauce

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
This was pretty easy to make even though it looks like it would take you hours. I ran into the same problem as SunnyByrd, I struggled to fit my apples on my pastry dough so I was forced to wrap them a little tighter than I would have wanted to. Mine blew open a little bit while they were baking but nothing major. My kids helped make these with me , so it's kid friendly. I peeled the apples and they stuffed them. I didn't cut the bottoms and they did waddle a little bit. Next time I'll cut the bottoms so that they sit better and I will use 3 apple halves to 1 sheet of pie crust pastry so that they aren't so tightly wrapped. I used Granny Smith apples and I'm so glad I did. They held up really well and the tartness of the apples countered any of the super sweetness of this yummy dessert.

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

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. :)

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.

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
Excellent ! I followed the recipe pretty closely. I made 8 servings but I halved the amount of butter since I knew I was going to drizzle them with olive oil at the end and sprinkle some parmesan. My husband adored these potatoes and they are beautiful with the addition of the spinach. Elegant and delicious. Will absolulety make over and over. Thank You !

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 !

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.

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 !

Lemon String Beans

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I cooked my string beans in some salted boiling water for a few minutes (3-4 minutes), I used frozen string beans. We like our veggies crunchy so I undercook a little bit and then quickly rinse with cold water. I sauteed the garlic in the olive oil. I threw the green beans in a bowl poured garlic and oil over the whole thing and squeezed 1/2 of a fresh lemon and tossed again. Added a tiny bit of salt and it was great. I think 1/4 cup of oil is too much. 2 tablespoons is more than enough. Follow your common sense when cooking and you'll never go wrong. Thanks for sharing.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
Absolutely sensational. I added 2 tablespoons of onion soup mix to the bread crumbs. I had no cream of mushroom soup so I had to used cream of celery. It worked out fine. I used one can of cream of celery and then doubled the milk and wine measurements. I had no pork chops just a tenderloin. So I cut the tenderlion to resemble chops. I didn't have to cook it as long since it was boneless. So yummy. I also added one 14 ounce can of mushrooms on top of the chops before I threw on the soup/milk/wine mixture. Covered and cooked for about 45 minutes. I made sure I sauteed the chops until crispy before putting in the oven. I COVERED my chops. I think that keeps it from drying out. Thanks.

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.

Italian Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I absolutely love this marinade. I use it when I make chicken caesar salad. This last time I used it with the ziti alfredo w/vegetables (from AR). I have also used this marinade when I make chicken souvlaki (also from AR). I even use this marinade for portabello mushrooms when I am grilling them. Sometimes, if I plan properly when I bring home my chicken or steak from the store I place it in a ziploc bag with the marinade and freeze it until I need it. That way it's all ready to go when I'm ready to use it and it's been marinating a long time.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Very very good. My family was somewhat skeptical about this one but it really held up to the good reviews. The 1 cup of lentils made plenty of "meat" for our family of 6. I believe altogether we had 11 tacos and I have some leftover. I tried this with both corn and flour and I prefer the corn tortillas. In place of all the spices I simply used 1 pkg. of low salt taco seasoning. This is a nice inexpensive meal. It works well when you have forgotten to take something out to defrost for dinner. Will definately make again. Thanks !

Cheese and Olive Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Super simple to make. You can even prepare it ahead of time. Throw it in the fridge and then pop it in the oven when you are ready. I personally hate black olives from a can so I was almost tempted to use green olives but I'm glad I stayed true to the recipe. It was delicious. It's just a few ingredients but they compliment each other nicely. It's a very nice looking appetizer if you slice it on the diagonal. Will make again. It's a great compliment to soup or even a salad if you're looking for a lite supper. Thanks. Update 12/2010. Made this again and used some red,green & yellow peppers and it was delicious !! I also used lite mayo and butter alternative to cut back on the grams of fat. Didn't miss the fat one bit. It was great !

Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
These were absolutely delicious ! I only had 12 mushrooms so I adjusted the recipe for 6 servings. I used a small shallot in place of the onion. I didn't have any marinated artichokes so I used the artichoke hearts from a can and seasoned them with a little italian seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil. I didn't have any italian cheese blend so I did as SunnyByrd and used mozzarella cheese and parmesan . Also, I did as Chicago Anita suggested by sauteeing the mushroom caps in a little bit of olive oil before I stuffed them. These mushrooms were soooooo good ! Very easy to make ~ Thanks Chicago Cookie !!
