Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
This recipe is incredible! I have made it with spice cake, adding a little extra pumpkin pie spice, raisins and walnuts; lemon cake mix, adding nothing and getting a great light lemon/pumpkin flavored muffin; and chocolate cake mix, adding mini chocolate chips and getting a great, moist chocolate muffin without a hint of pumpkin. I've made 6 large or 12 small muffins from the recipe. If you don't like the lumpy top, smooth out the batter with a wet finger.Thank you CindyCosta for a real keeper!!

Healthful Delicata Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
For a more healthful soup, I sauteed the squash with more onion for more carmelization, before adding the veggie broth. I simmered the broth and squash together for about 45 minutes, removed the bay leaves. pureed the soup, and added about 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. I added a soupcon of heavy cream to eachbowl when I served it. More taste of squash in this version, too.

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
Try roasting the chicken and veggies first and tossing everything from the roasting pan into the crock pot. Also, don't be afraid of bay leaves. Toss in 4 or 5. A turnip also helps the flavor. If you roast a chicken, save the uneaten parts for soup, or if you butcher a whole chicken instead of buying parts, freeze the backs and wings until you have enough for a batch of broth.

Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken Breasts Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
Do precook the bacon to about half-done (still flexible) before wrapping chicken, or wrap with bacon, sear in pan, and finish on cookie sheet. Do pre-saute the aromatics.

Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
For the beans, we use canellini cooked slowly with a with a rind of Parmesano-Reggiano For noodles, we always use broken pappardelle or ditalini. And on pasta fagioli night, the shaker of crushed red pepper was always on the table!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I make this all the time, but I make it the day before, put the crock pot in the frig(side porch in winter) and remove the fat before reheating and serving. I like Penzey's Tuscan seasoning (about 1/4 c.) better than the dressing mix. You can add 1/2 the seasoning an hour before the dish is done to get a brighter flavor.

Cream Cheese Jalapeno Hamburgers

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
For a real treat, try creamy goat cheese (Chevre) in place of the cream cheese.

Korean Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
I used rice wine vinegar and a 1/2 t sugar to make a sweet and hot dish that got rave reviews. I also marinated it for several hours. The white vinegar was too acidic.

Orange Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
Add the zest of an orange, and the flavor really perks up. Marinate overnight. Make the sauce as recommended by several reviewers. To the cook who asked how to keep the chicken from getting dry: Once it's marinated overnight, don't overcook it! The marinade should keep it moist.

Hamburgers and Ketchup Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
We call this Serbian Steak at our house(kind of a joke, we Serbs didn't have money for real steak) and make it with round steak and lots of onions. Takes a few hours of simmering in a slow oven. We serve with fried potatoes and rustic bread. Use organic ketchup to avoid high fructose corn syrup. You really don't need seasoning other than onions. Many people tend to forget that ketchup is quite a complex sauce, which you'll find if you ever make it at home.

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
First, I agree with those who dislike reading reviews of the reviewer's recipe rather than the one one the website. That said, I made this pretty much as written, but used roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup, since chicken and tuna didn't sound like a good combination to me. I liked the garlic soup much better than the regular COM I use in tuna casserole. The canned french fried onions really added a nice kick.

Cheesy Italian Tortellini

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
If you're going to cook a sauce in a crockpot for 7 hours, you may as well save some money and use canned tomatoes instead of prepared pasta sauce and make a sauce to your liking. Also, cheddar is so not Italian. However, cooking the fresh tortellini in the crockpot is a great idea; makes a great tasting tortellini.

Orange Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
Needs a little something. Maybe some orange zest and a longer marinade time. Or frozen juice concentrate instead of orange juice.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This is a standby for me. Everyone loves it. You can also make it with frozen artichoke hearts for a little less sodium. Sprinkle a few capers on top. Top with a little paprika or cayenne. Use boneless chicken thighs for the dark meat lovers.

Saltimbocca alla Pollo

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This is a wonderful, very authentic version of veal saltimbocca, deserving of five stars. I am always amazed when reviewers completely change the recipe and then rate it low, as though they made it as described and it wasn't good. This recipe requires real prosciutto and is better with fresh sage, which can grow outdoors all year in most of the USA. Try it without loading it with cheese -- it's a delicate dish. Maybe a little Parmesan sprinkled on top before serving.
