Broccoli Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
I should first forewarn that I made a lot of variations, never even followed this recipe once, so I don't know what it tastes like origianally. It sounded way to bland for my and my family's palate. I made it for serving 8 (I have a family of 4 and we only had one serving left, which I took to work the next day). Instead of water I used beef broth. Added 2 tsp of minced garlic 1T of diced dehydrated onion (don't use fresh, my preferrance) Omitted salt Couple shakes of red pepper flakes Omitted black pepper Omitted nutmeg For the sauce to stir in at the end I... Used 2 cups milk rather than the 2-2/3 that it called for(remember I made the soup to serve 8) I wanted a thicker sauce to stir in, the soup looked thin I added the cheese to the sauce and extra at that, and it turned out just like a rich cheese sauce. Then I poured the cheese sauce into the soup and stirred. My soup turned out FANTASTIC. My whole family loved it, leaving only one serving for left overs. I will make again, and again, and again. We served with bread, it made for a nice warm filling meal.

Beef Stroganoff II

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
This was the best I have ever made. I did not use onion. Instead I sliced up 4 gloves of garlic (it is not over powering or hot) and put them in with the cooking meat. I LOVE GARLIC. I also followed the others and added milk, but did not measure mine, just to what looked good. I did not use fat free sour cream, if you are going to eat good food, EAT GOOD FOOD! There is just something about fat free! Like said, go to the gym the next day and work extra hard. I also did a couple splashes of worchestershire sauce. TASTY!

Cranapana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
My husbands favorite bread was banana bread up until we had this. He said it is his new favorite. We bake them in Pampered Chef's mini loaf stone and add a few Baker's Choco Chunks to the batter. I also grease and sugar the pan. It is definately a SWEET bread, so don't think of it as a breakfast bread or even a healthy bread. It just tastes so good.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
I found this to be pretty tastey. I used turkey bacon and a little less than 3 Tbs of the dressing mix. I also used diced canned tomatoes that were on hand, and only about 2/3 of the can. I did not use the olives, I thought of this salad as some sort of blt, minus the lettuce, so I didn't think the olives sounded so good. Leaving out the olives also cuts down on the salty issue that others were mentioning. As a side dish at a pot luck it isn't too bad. My family is not a big mayo fan so I wouldn't make it JUST for my family, we would never eat all of it.

Healthy Turkey Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
For all the not so positive comments made about turkey loaf I have to say this...I have not made this loaf yet, but like the idea of the salsa so I will be trying it. I do however ALWAYS and ONLY make meat loaf using turkey. I also only use wheat germ to hold it all together (instead of bread crumbs or crackers or something). Just substitute same measuring. Some may not like that texture, but my little family loves it and we usually eat the whole thing in one meal. I also use one pound of turkey, and still one egg. Just play around with it, you will figure it out. Just keep in mind that it is REALLY good for you and can make it just as yummy as your other meat loaf. I also have added lots of garlic or worchestersire sauce.

Pumpkin Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
I followed the recipe exactly. The cake is so soft and moist. I did make a different glaze though. I used apple juice and less powered sugar so it would seap into the cake, then sprinkled it with pecans (next time I will toast the nuts. This glaze was so yummy, even the bottom of the cake soaked up sum of it!

Couscous with Dried Cherries

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
This is a favorite in my house. I cook some garlic in the butter first. I also use dried cranberries and toss in broken toasted pecans at the end. I caught my husband later after dinner standing at the fridge with the leftovers and a spoon! Even my young girls request this for dinner.

Hot Breakfast Couscous

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
I do not care for cooked milk. The texture just didn't do it for me. The taste is great though. So, maybe next time I will try juice or water.
