Easy Gravy

Reviewed: May 24, 2015
This was quick, easy, and tasted great! I wasn't originally going to make gravy since only my husband and I will eat it (3 boys don't like it), but since I had a few minutes waiting for some carrots to finish steaming, I figured I would give it a try. The texture was wonderful - no lumps at all! The gravy was really good over our mashed potatoes and some roasted chicken. The flavor could be stronger, but that will be something to play around with next time. Oh, and I was still waiting for the carrots to finish steaming when the gravy was finished, so it is really fast to make!

Light Coconut Cream Broccoli and Barley Soup

Reviewed: May 17, 2015
We loved this recipe - 5 out of 5 people ate it at my house! The flavor was great and loved having all of the veggies in this soup. I did add some chicken pieces to the soup, mostly for my husband and oldest son, but I would have liked it without the chicken also. It did take some time chopping up the vegetables, but is well worth it. Two of my sons (ages 3 and 1) eat small servings, so this lasted us much longer than just six servings. I would say probably more like 8 or 9 for us. Great as leftovers since it so easy to warm up, and the flavor develops more that way too. Thanks for the recipes, HAP!

Chicken Veggie Stir Fry

Reviewed: May 4, 2015
I was surprised to see so many low reviews for this recipe because my entire family really liked this one. To me it seems like people are expecting restaurant quality stir-fry, which just looking at the ingredients indicates that won't be the case. It's a great dish that you can load full of veggies, and switch out anything that your family doesn't like. The flavor was good (despite what people say), and was very filling with both the rice and noodles. Thank you for the recipe, ANNIEM!

Chungles Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2015
Overall I thought this recipe was pretty good. I did use black olives instead of kalamata olives because I knew my kids wouldn't eat the kalamatas. There wasn't really much sauce with this pasta, which was fine with us, but I could see some people being surprised by it. The flavor was great, and my kids liked it a lot. My 7 year old said, "Is this like pizza pasta?", which would probably be a pretty good description of it with very similar ingredients to a pizza. This was pretty quick to make also, with it only taking me about 20 minutes or so, and that makes it very nice for a weeknight. Thank you for the recipe, Sarah and Annette!

Southwest Black Bean Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2015
This soup was pretty good. It is definitely one of those recipes that needs the simmer time, so don't try to rush this one. When I tasted the soup after I had all of the ingredients put together it was SPICY, and I was kind of worried about how my kids (7,3, and 1) were going to eat this. As it turned out, the longer the soup cooked the mellower it got, and was perfectly fine for the boys to eat at dinner time. It still had a little bit of a kick to it, but just the right amount. This was an easy recipe to make for a weeknight meal since the crockpot is used all day. Since 4 out of 5 in my family liked this I'm sure I will make this again sometime. Thank you for the recipe, Beth!

Blue Ribbon Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
This recipe was fantastic! Very easy to follow, even with several steps to follow. The flavor was spot on with the spiciness from the curry and cayenne, to the sweetness of the apple. I think the only thing that I would do differently next time would be to add another apple instead of only having one. I felt like I only had a taste of apple every few bites or so and had to kind of look for it. No big deal though, and it's easily fixed. For those that don't want the recipe to be as sweet I'm sure one apple would suffice. My seven year old and three year old really loved it, as did my husband and I. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us, Mark!

Easy Sausage Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2015
Everyone at my house really liked this soup a lot, and all three of my boys ate it up (that doesn't happen real often!). I tasted this after I added the evaporated milk, and thought the broth part tasted a little bland, so I did add a couple of chicken bouillon cubes, and that made the soup more flavorful. That was the only thing that I changed though. This was pretty quick to make, which is nice for a weeknight meal. This made quite a bit, so I have enough for another meal or two for the five of us. Great recipe, thank you for sharing, Suzanne!

Goldenrod Egg

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2015
My family has been making this for years every Easter. We love it and look forward to it every year. The sauce is easy to make and this is definitely more filling than you would think it would be. Thank you for sharing the recipe, Danaferre!

Low-Fat Taco Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2015
Great recipe! Easy to make and very quick, which was nice on a Friday night after work. I highly recommend this recipe, and we will definitely have it again sometime. My husband, six year old, three year old, and I all loved it, so I am sure this will be made again soon. Thank you for the recipe, Food Tourist!

Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2015
This recipe was good and very simple, which makes it a great weeknight meal when you don't have much time to prepare something more elaborate. The flavor was pretty good, but I could see how some people would think that it is bland, and the suggestions that some other reviewers have made would make this soup even better. I might try those next time I make this. My husband, my six year old, one year old, and I all liked it, and the only complaint was from my three year old. He ended up eating it though. Great, quick recipe. Thank you for sharing, Donna!

Persian Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2015
This rice was wonderful! My whole family loved it, which doesn't happen real often. The spices and herbs give this dish a very flavorful and fresh taste. It's labeled as Persian Rice, but the flavor is mellow enough that it could be a side dish to pretty much any entree, and not just Mediterranean food. It sounds like I contradicted myself by saying that it's flavorful and mellow, but somehow, both of those words describe it perfectly. I will make this rice again very soon. Thank you for the recipe, Chef John!

Chili Con Queso Bites

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2015
We thought these were pretty good. Four out of five ate them in my family, so they went over fairly well. I was expecting them to have a little more flavor than they did though, so maybe I will add some cumin or some other spices next time.

Herbed Mushroom Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2015
This was pretty good, but not my favorite sauce that I have made. I'm not sure yet how I feel about the tomato soup in the recipe, because I thought maybe it gave it too much of a tomato taste. At first when I added the tomato soup I was really afraid that it was going to end up too watery, but after simmering for about an hour it was a good consistency. It's definitely not one to make if you need something fast because it does take a while for it to simmer down. I really liked the peppers in this recipe, and the mushrooms I will chop up in larger pieces next time because I didn't even notice that they were in the sauce since they cooked down a lot. I might try this one again in a few weeks and see how I feel about the taste of the soup in the sauce then. My boys all ate this really well, so that was nice. Thank you for the recipe, Anne!

Ultimate Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2015
Great recipe, and something slightly different to do with green beans! My husband, my two oldest sons, and I all liked these really well. My one and a half year old kind of just picked at it, but he did end up trying a couple of bites. Since the majority of us liked the beans I will be making these again. The bacon added a great flavor, and the butter/lemon juice tasted wonderful. Thanks for the recipe, Eric!

Gravy Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2015
This recipe turned out very good for us. It was an easy and inexpensive dish to make, which is always great. All three of my boys ate this without complaint, and that doesn't happen real often so I am sure I will make this again. The only thing that I did different from the original recipe was add chopped green pepper to it since I had some that needed to be used up, but this would not have changed the flavor much at all and it added some nice color. Thank you for the recipe, ANDYATWOOD!
