Roasted Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
Love this salad! As noted in the recipe, the key is to properly roast the carrots. Under-roasting them makes for a soggy salad. I like to roast the carrots and almonds separately (or at least on separate ends of the pan) as they almonds usually are done before the carrots.

Sloppy Sams

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
You know it's a good recipe when you make it for meat-eaters and they are having 2nds and 3rds and asking to take left-overs home. This is one of those recipes! Absolutely delicious, not to mention easy and inexpensive. I sprayed a non-stick pan with olive oil instead of using the oil called for and it worked fine and cut fat and calories. I also used Italian-style canned diced tomatoes since I didn't have fresh ones on hand, and cooked the lentils in the juice I drained off the tomatoes along with enough water to make the 3 cups of liquid. I made sure not to overcook the lentils so they weren't mushy. This recipe is a keeper!

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
My son was craving the baked ziti he had while living in an Italian neighborhood in New Jersey. He gave this recipe two thumbs up! It's so quick and easy, with few ingredients but it's a really good comfort food dish. I've prepared this recipe many times, often when I have dinner guests on short notice, and it always gets rave reviews. We like it best with spicy Italian sausage and fresh basil in the layers with the dried basil on top.

Chile Verde II

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
This is better than any chile verde I've had in a restaurant. Absolutely delicious. I steamed the tomatillos for a couple of minutes and let cool before blending. I also added the seeds from one of the jalapenos as otherwise, it is a bit bland. I roasted the chiles, peeled, then blended half of them with the tomatillos and chopped the other half. This recipe make A LOT but the leftovers freeze well.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
The muffin itself was mediocre. The topping is good. Will use the topping again but with a better muffin recipe.

Glazed Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
This is our favorite corned beef recipe. It does need to be cooked longer than indicated in the recipe if you want it to be tender. I cook in my crockpot with the corned beef seasonings for at least 12 hours & then remove, coat with apricot glaze and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes. The 20-30 minutes recommended in the recipe tends to cause the sauce to burn.

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
This recipe is versitile and the sauce is wonderful! I sometimes omit the chicken for a veggie fettuccini. I use different veggie combinations: spinach, onion, mushroom with some crumbled bacon thrown in; brocolli & red bell pepper; asparagus & mushrooms. I find the sauce to be a bit thicker than I like with 1/3 c flour so I usually cut it down to 1/4 c & am carefull not to overcook.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
This is a quick and easy meal. I used Italian-style canned tomatos that were already seasoned with basil, onion, and garlic. I only used 1/2 lb of bacon and also added parmesan and cherry tomatos.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2008
Super easy but only as good as the BBQ sauce you use. Got rave reviews when I used KC Masterpiece Honey BBQ. Also, don't shred too fine as it's a little too "mushy." Leave some chunks.

Chicken and Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
I was looking for a bow tie chicken pasta recipe that tasted like one of my family's favorites from one of the places where you make a batch of meals for the freezer. This was it except petite green peas are used in place of the brocolli.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
Loved this dish, as did my teenage vegetarian daughter. Took it to work for a potluck lunch and everyone wanted the recipe. It's quick, delicious and inexpensive. I made a healthier version by using a non-stick pan & 1/2 t oil to sautee the onion & garlic, eliminating the salt, and using reduced sodium beans. The 2nd time I made it, I added a small can of green chilies and used it as the filling for vegetarian enchiladas.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
By themselves, these pancakes might only be 3-star but topped with coconut ice cream (recipe from this website), they are really good!

Coconut Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
This recipe is simple but incredibly good. I left out the flaked coconut and sprinkled on toasted coconut after the ice cream was frozen. I served it atop banana pancakes and it was a huge hit.
