Cajun Crab Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
I have made this several times now and it is just easy and very flavorful. I passed it on to a friend and she forgot the thyme. It really does need to have it. Enjoy.

Dad's Pan-Fried Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
Just made this tonight for supper and everyone loved it. I had to stop my 7 year old daughter from eating it all so my husband could at least taste it. He finished it all. It was very easy to make and i really just eyeballed the amounts and it was fantastic.

Bananas Foster II

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I converted the recipe for a serving of 4 and i will next time cut down on the rum and brown sugar, it was just a little too much for me, but my husband and 7 year old and 4 year old children liked it as is.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
I just made this tonight and it was really good, both my kids, 4 and 7 year old, gave it two thumbs up! The only thing i changed was that i added more curry powder and will probably add 3 tsp next time. I think you could decrease the amount of the butter by 1/2, making it a little bit healthier. The long cooking time keeps this recipe in "my days off" list of supper ideas though.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
This was ok, sort of bland and i added extra garlic and lemon juice. Kids didn't like it and my daughter usually is pretty good about trying new things and she didn't like it either.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
Whole family loved it. It was done quickly on high. My crockpot has the ability to turn it up to 375 degrees, so i browned it first and then slow cooked it on low and it was very moist.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
I really liked this and thought this was easy to make. My husband thought it was not as flavorful as it could be. I did cook the chicken and then removed it to keep warm. Then cooked the mushrooms seperately. I did not have any sherry so i just used white wine along with the marsala.

Broccoli With Lemon Almond Butter

Reviewed: May 31, 2008
I enjoyed this alot. To make it a little more spicy, i would add in some red pepper flakes. I like the crunch of the almonds.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Very tasty, i added half a chopped onion with the garlic. At the end i added 1/4 or less of heavy cream to thicken it up and stick to the pasta. I used preminced jar garlic so i ended up guessing on the amount. Kids were ok on it. Their loss.

Kate's Light n' Fluffy Buttermilk and Chocolate Chip Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
I thought these were pretty good. I didn't have buttermilk powder, so i omitted it. I didn't want the hassle of seperating the egg, so i just put it all together. This batter was thicker than most waffle recipes i tried, but these waffles were crisper than the ones i make, which i liked. Kids loved them simply because they have choc chips in them.

Pickled Red Beet Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
My grandma, who was Pennsylvania Dutch, always used cider vinegar and she didn't add any onions. I am giving it a try. If there wasn't enough juice to fill the jar, she was just add warm water, then shake to mix. Thanks for the recipe, we always had them, but i never had a recipe.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I really really like this recipe, but i did think that it was time intensive. I will follow the advice of others by pan frying in small pieces next time so it will be faster. I also used mushrooms and doubled the sauce as others suggested. It looked like it was missing something, i would add peas for a spash of color next time. My daughter, who is 7, loved it!!! This is a keeper. Thanks.

Byrdhouse Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I made these tonight and they didn't taste good at all. I was looking forward to the sweet with the sugar and the basil, but mine got clumpy and the tomatoes never blistered. Sorry, i won't be making these again. My 7 year daughter states " they're yucky".

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
I liked this, but i made the sauce on the stove seperate from the steak. I grilled the steak to medium on grill with just olive oil, salt and fresh ground pepper. Sauteed the vinegar, wine, and added a little honey until reduced. It thickened up after sitting for a little while. I enjoyed it with a baked potatoe and a glass of wine.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Very tasty. I leave out the onions because the kids aren't much of a fan of those. I also add 1/4 C of cheddar cheese.

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I really liked this and so did my husband and a coworker that dropped by. I didn't have some of the ingredients, so did make substitutions, regular onion, white wine, and fresh spinach which i just slightly wilted at end of cooking. I think i will add some garlic next time too. I also didn't add cream to just the pasta, just a little oil to keep farfella from sticking. I did use less pasta than called for so i did have enough sauce. Very good~!!!!

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2008
I MADE THIS BECAUSE I LEFT OVER SQUASH AND NEEDED A SIDE DISH. MY HUSBAND WRINKLED HIS NOSE AT IT WHILE I WAS COOKING IT BUT HE RATED IT AS A 10!!! MY KIDS THOUGHT IT WAS OK. I ADDED A DASH OF FRESH GRATED NUTMEG AND I THINK THAT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. WE WILL BE HAVING AGAIN AS THE ADULTS LOVED IT. OH, AND I CUBED MY SQUASH AND BOILED IT IN MY STOCK UNTIL SOFT, THEN PUSHED IT THROUGH A RICER AND ADDED TO THE RISOTTO AT THE END OF COOKING.

Baked Orange Roughy with Veggies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
My husband and i liked it, but the kids didn't think too much of it. We didn't have any green peppers, but we both agreed that it wouldn't have helped it. I really seasoned it well with the lemon pepper and salt and it baked up easily in 20 mins. I loved the zest of the tomatoes.
