One Pan Orecchiette Pasta

Reviewed: May 27, 2015
First I need to say - we're stuffed from eating this tonight. I'm sure as printed it's fantastic, but we thoroughly enjoyed the version I came up with just playing around a little because of ingredients on hand (so don't be afraid to sub if needed). We didn't need any olive oil, used bow-tie pasta, swapped in 1/4 cup white wine with the initial chicken broth cooking mixture and used spinach instead of arugula. I don't think the whole amount of chicken broth was needed, but I'm here to tell you, this is one good meal. We definitely will have it again and I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to others. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

Amazing Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: May 21, 2015
I didn't have Asian chile paste, so subbed with chili sauce and marinated the shrimp for almost 24 hours. Hubby said it was the best shrimp he'd ever had. Thank you so much for the recipe - we'll do this again and again.

Cowboy Stew I

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2015
Oh so good! I added celery with the onion and instead of tomato sauce had a can of Progressive Hearty Tomato soup that needed to be used. Outside of being a bit more soupy, it's wonderful as is. We put it over some cornbread and will have this again soon, probably with some more hot sauce additions because we like spicy.

'Day Before Payday' Kielbasa and Corn Hash

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
First this recipe gets points for being so easy and filling, second it lends itself well to substitutions. I cooked the seasoned frozen hash brown potatoes to crispy first and removed them - then used the same pan to saute the sausage (Cheddar and Jalapeno flavor) with onions, adding some previously frozen summer corn and red and yellow chopped peppers (I'm not a big fan of green peppers). Another plus with this was that I could do it early in the day, refrigerate the sausage mixture in the pan, and when dinner hour rolled around I just added the potatoes back in while heating. Definitely the sunny side up eggs were a plus! We'll do this again - thanks so much for the recipe.

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2014
Yummy!! I used crushed tomatoes because I wanted it saucy and wouldn't have to pre-cook the ravioli. Then some added mushrooms were also welcomed into the mix. Normally we're meat and potatoes eaters, but this was really, really good. Thanks so much for the recipe - it's a keeper and will be shared with others!

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
I don't care for poppy seeds, so I also used celery and did cut the amount of sugar (Splenda) in half. Any time a recipe calls for either mayo or Miracle Whip, I use half of each to cut down on an overwhelming taste. Both were "light" but the finished product tastes great. Making the dressing early and letting it marry before mixing in the slaw kept it from getting runny. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Quick Hoppin' John Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
I've never had Hoppin' John Soup, but was more than happy to share some of this (since it makes a bunch) with some neighbors who are equally lame. We all loved it. I made some changes, but it doesn't matter what those were, because the basis of the original recipe is strong enough to let us play with it. Don't be afraid to use what you've got on hand. We'll do this again and again - thanks for the recipe!

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
I love Mexican and equally love pasta so I couldn't see why other reviewers had problems mixing them together. I now apologize - for some reason the two of them together just didn't work for us either. The flavor of the meat and tomatoes was very good (hence the 3 stars), but we won't do this again.

Grands!® Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2014
Some day in the future I'll use soup, but I had time today so I made my own sauce using heart healthy butter, skim milk and low sodium chicken flavoring with the flour. My biscuits were low fat and it ended up being a darn good meal with not a whole lot of the "bad" ingredients we have to be so careful to ingest. Thanks for the recipe!!

Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
Very, very good - even with my changes. There are only 2 of us so I cut the amount of potatoes and ham in half. After the casserole was built, I felt like it was actually too saucy (hard for me to imagine!) so I added a really well drained bag of thawed, frozen spinach. It worked but we still ended up with one meal for tonight and one to freeze (YEA!). I only used one pot for the prep - when the potato group was done cooking and draining, I used the same pot to cook the rest of the veggies and ham. Then they were mixed in with the potatoes and the sauce was constructed using the same pot - it worked just fine. Thanks for the recipe - we'll use it often for our left over ham!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
I've just put the sauce together and wanted to say how good it is so far. My can of tomatoes had garlic and basil in it, so I didn't add extra basil, but did add some sauteed onions and mushrooms and left it simmer for quite a while to reduce the liquid before introducing the flour/milk mixture (fat free half and half was used instead of heavy cream). A whole bag of spinach was used which looks like a good amount and I did add a couple wedges of Laughing Cow cream cheese for more cheesy flavor. Oh, and the pink color didn't bother me one bit! Thanks for the recipe - we'll definitely do this again.

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
I did substitute chicken for the shrimp, but there's no way I would try this again with either base. Sorry!

Aunt Kate's Green Beans in Tomatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
Yep, it tasted like beans in spaghetti sauce. I don't know why I thought it wouldn't but it did and we don't like it that way. Back to green bean casseroles.

Scalloped Tomatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
Really good and a great way to use up old bread and ends of tomatoes. I had extra tops and bottoms along with a slice of ciabatta that worked very well without pre-toasting. Parmesan was added at the baking stage and some mozzarella the last 10 minutes which I would definitely do again. The dish was put together early in the day and refrigerated, but baking it uncovered made a great consistency for us. Thanks for the recipe - we'll use it regularly.

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
I made so many changes that I don't want to list them, but the "jist" of my review is that this recipe is so versatile you can play with it all you want and it's still going to be very good. Definitely try it - we're going to have it again and again.

Smoky Mountain Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
I gave this 5 stars even though I made a big change by using dry ranch dressing instead of Italian seasonings (I'll try the correct seasonings next time) and not as much BBQ sauce as suggested. My chicken bakked about 35-40 minutes total, and started out with everything except the ham and cheese which was added the last 5 minutes, but it was so juicy and very, very good at the end. We'll do this again soon - thanks so much for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
I didn't have exactly the right ingredients for this, but luckily it's very flexible - even to the extent of using plain ol' Miller Lite for the beer. I only used 1 can of tomatoes and about 1 pound of "Refried Beans Without The Refry" (recipe from this site) with the black beans. I made it today for dinner tomorrow, but know from my oh, so necessary testing that this is good already - I can hardly wait to heat it up tomorrow. It makes a bunch so we have some frozen for another day. Matching the soup with some sweet Texas cheese cornbread and guacamole and I'll be all that! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us.

Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
I really liked this with minor changes like half the Worcestershire sauce, fresh garlic and a splash of lemon. The only problem was that after 24 hours it was WAY to runny. Luckily, we had most of ours the first day when it had set for about eight hours, which is how I would do it again.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I only needed 2 fat pork chops, but kept the rest of the ingredients and ended up liking the amount of sauce for our meals. When the chops were done browning, I moved them to a greased casserole, deglazed the frying pan with a shot of white wine and added the rest of the ingredients including a sliced onion. After the apple mixture cooked through, they were added to the casserole and baked in a 350 oven for 30 minutes covered, 15 minutes uncovered. My husband isn't a big pork fan, but even he liked these so we'll definitely do them again. Thanks for the recipe.

Shrimply Delicious Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
Very good! I did make sure my shrimp was dry and cut back on the mayo (as a personal preference I mix 1/2 mayonnaise with 1/2 Miracle Whip to alleviate the overwhelming flavor or one or the other) and used Old Bay seasoning instead of salt. After all, what's a seafood recipe without OB? Thanks for sharing the recipe, we'll have it often!
