Salmon and Swiss Chard Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
This is a lovely dish. colorful, flavorful -- perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's more of a frittata, because of the lack of crust. I baked it in a quiche dish. I used leftover grilled salmon, and simmered it in a little more than half the milk called for in the recipe to give it a little more moisture. I served it with some grated parmesan cheese, sour cream and salsa. Yumm!

Swedish meatballs - from a Swede

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Wonderful!! I have to thank Baking Nana for the recommendation. I didn't take a picture of them, and I should have, dogone it. Not to worry - I'll be making them again very soon!

Savory Mango Guacamole

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
I *love* guacamole. I've made the quick and easy guac with mashed avocados and salsa, and I've made it fancy from scratch. So, please believe me when I say that this one is fabulous! I made it exactly as written. We had to stop ourselves from eating all of it and spoiling our appetite for the rest of our Cinco de Mayo meal! Savory, sweet and just plain delicious!

Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
Oh, these were fab!! Just delicious and easy to make. I tweaked only slightly, as I had some green pepper and onion I wanted to use, so cut the chicken into chunks and alternated with the veggies. I also don't have a grill, so I broiled them. My SO raved about them, and today at lunch, my co-workers said that this smelled so good! This will be a staple here!

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Like others, I did not have any wheat germ on hand, so substituted oatmeal. I just rolled them out into little balls and used a fork to mash 'em down like others have done as well. My dogs love them (I'll need to make much bigger batches as they are BIG dogs), and they even taste pretty good to the hoomans!

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
I'm floored! This will be a favorite meal forever! Easy to prepare and oh, so flavorful! I did tweak the recipe a little: I cut up the chicken into small pieces, for easy spooning when serving. I added about 1/2 cup finely chopped onion with the mushrooms and cream cheese mixture. Gave it a nice fresh taste with a little extra texture. The cream cheese was the lower fat neufchatel cheese; the soup was lower sodium Campbell's Healthy Request condensed cream of chicken soup. The mushrooms were 8 oz of sliced fresh crimini mushrooms. Wonderful stuff! My SO raved about it! We will be doubling the mushrooms next time (we love mushrooms)!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
My, oh, MY -- this is the most amazingly juicy and tender chicken I have ever had! I seriously cannot remember eating a breast from a roast chicken that was this succulent (and decadent!). I'm floored! I will never buy another store-bought rotisserie chicken again...EVER!

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
Lovely! I tweaked the recipe just a tad by adding colorful bell peppers, a little garlic and another egg (because the mixture didn't bind well when formed). The recipe also made more patties than called for (I formed seven 3" to 4" diameter patties). That's a bonus. I'm heartily impressed!

I loved this! So simple to make and unadulterated flavor! What else can I say that hasn't already been said? Love Chef John!

Beer Chops II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
I am genuinely surprised! I didn't expect much from this recipe, but I have to admit I really liked it! My SO went crazy for it - and I'm more of a beer person than he is! I will say this, however: Be choosy about your beer. The flavor of the beer is intensified in this recipe, so if you don't like it enough to drink it, you won't like what you cook with it. For the beer-shy, go for a mild lager (Budweiser, Coors, etc.). If you're bold, go for a nice dark ale, porter or stout, but if you don't want that bitter taste magnified (and it will), mix between a teaspoon to a tablespoon of sugar or honey to the brew before you pour it over the chops. Next time, I might sear the chops before I put them in the slow cooker for some color (they came out a little pale), and shorten the cooking time accordingly.

Mushroom Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
This is pretty good, although I discovered that my slow cooker was on the small side--it was difficult to get all of the ingredients layered into the pot and have the lid on tight. So, I placed foil over the top of the pot and snugged the lid down as best I could. In a little over an hour, the volume reduced to the point where the lid fit, so removed the foil. I was a bit disappointed that the soup didn't seem to seep down into the layers as well as I had hoped (which could also have been a result of having a too-small slow cooker), so I will probably divide the soup among the layers next time, as well as reducing the amount of ingredients. Still, it was tasty, and it's a nice comfort food for cold nights. I'll be making this again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
This soup has become a staple in my house. The original recipe came out a bit thick, in my opinion, so I halved the flour and butter called for in the recipe, then add a little cornstarch in cold water to thicken it up a tiny bit more. This also reduces the calories just a little. Reliable old standby!

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
This was very good as written, but in making it again, I made a few tweaks: I used 1/2 the onion called for - it was very strong on the first go-round. I *love* Craisins, so subbed that for the raisins. I also thought the dressing was way too sweet, so used less than half the amount called for this time and used more vinegar to thin the dressing out a bit more. Next time, I may experiment with yogurt instead of mayo for a slimmer result. That said, this will no doubt be a staple, as my coworkers scarfed it up in record time!

Soy Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Very simple, very good! I only changed two things: I removed the skin before cooking to reduce the fat and I doubled the green onion, adding half of it to the chicken while it simmered. This will be on my regular rotation!

Sweet and Tangy Thai Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
This was a nice, easy and refreshing salad. I thought it was too sweet for my taste, so I will reduce the sugar next time. Also next time, I will experiment with adding herbs. I think dill will go with this quite well. A keeper!

Swanson® Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
This was good. An interesting departure from the plain old mashed potatoes. I used Yukon gold potatoes, as I like the texture and flavor better. The broth added just a little more depth. I'll use this again.

Italian Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Simple, easy and delicious! I let the chicken marinade for more than 24 hours, which let the flavors meld well. I broiled rather than grilled the chicken. It was flavorful, tender and juicy. This one is going in my weeknight meal file. :-)

Mango Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
With the exception of cutting up the mango, this was a really easy meal. I halved the recipe, but left the amount of mango intact - that seemed to solve the lack of mango flavor that others mentioned. I didn't want to overcook the chicken in the process of browning it, so erred on the side of not quite browned in favor of allowing the chicken to poach in the delightful orange-mango sauce. I found it delightfully fruity and light-tasting. No rice needed - just added some steamed veggies for an excellent summer meal!

Blackberry Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Very easy and quick. I loved the subtle, sweet herb flavor. The chicken breast was very tender and cooked just right. The sauce (more of a glaze, actually) added a nice depth and looked great drizzled on the chicken. I used 1 tsp of dried lemon thyme in place of fresh, but followed everything else exactly. I didn't need the cornstarch, as I thought the sauce reduced quite nicely. A wonderful blend of flavors, which went very well with a nice salad and herbed potatoes!

Pizza Alfredo with Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
This was great!! The only things I changed were that I cut the meatballs in half, so used only half as much (they were just a bit big for easy eating), and I used sun-dried tomatoes in the packet (not in oil), and soaked them in a little olive oil to infuse the flavor. It took a bit of prep, so I'm not sure just how often this will be made, but this *will* be in my repertoire of out-of-the-ordinary, fun things to make!
