Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
What a wonderful dish! I presented it in a cooking class at church and received rave reviews. This recipe makes 7 cups and freezes well for the next go 'round. My modifications: bulk turkey Italian sausage, canned diced tomatoes with basil & garlic, zucchini and summer squash, broccoli, cauliflower & carrot mix, can of mushroom pieces, 1/4 c olive oil, green & red bell peppers and an Italian cheese blend w/ Parmesan, Asiago, Mozzarella and Provolone. This dish was 'tha bomb'!!

Crispy Bacon and Sweet Onion Omelet

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
Wonderful technique. Yielded a nice puffy omelet like one gets in a restaurant. Using what I had on hand, I substituted Parmesan and Sharp Cheddar, sauteed frozen pre-chopped onion and bell pepper blend, real bacon bits and pimiento for more color. I'll use this recipe again soon.

Thirty Minute Cocoa Cake With Quick Cocoa Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
This cake was 'da bomb'! I made two substitutions: I replaced one cup of flour with one cup of whole wheat pastry flour & I replaced one cup of sugar with one cup of Splenda for baking. It baked for 40 minutes and disappeared in about the same amount of time! It was quick and easy; just follow the directions to the letter, baking for 40 minutes.

Traditional Osso Buco

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Ab fab! Easy, common ingredients, excellent flavor. I added a little more garlic and because there were no herbs/spices, I used a can of Italian style diced tomatoes with basil, thyme, etc. I will decrease the butter by half next time because of concern for my mother's heart. But she said, "If I'm gonna have a heart attack, let me have Osso Buco in my mouth!"

Almost Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
One of the easiest, best-tasting quick recipes on this site. I don't trust canned tomatoes (acid interaction) but I do substitute an equal amount of pasta sauce (from a glass jar) thinned with water for the tomatoes and water called for. I like the extra zest that garlic adds to this dish. Also using lean ground turkey for ground beef makes the dish even healthier as well as quick/instant brown rice for more fiber. This is a family favorite!

Asparagus with Sliced Almonds and Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
Very easy instructions, very different result from my usual grilled asparagus with olive oil and garlic. Per others' suggestion, I did boil mine first as well, but drained the water and immediately added butter and 1 T Olive oil to saute on the stovetop. We didn't have almonds on hand so I substituted minced pecans with excellent results. I used Kroger grated Parmesan but merely dusted the spears and let it stay in a warm oven to melt the cheese w/o making a stringy mess. I'll start alternating this dish with my usual garlic broiled spears.

Grilled Scampi

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Another winner and an excellent way to make Scampi quickly. I used the tip for marinating the shrimp (used part of the sauce in a baggie); I also added white pepper, dried parsley, and chives along with a LOT of garlic: chopped, ground, powder, pepper - well actually a little of each. Can't have TOO much garlic in Scampi, right? I used my Geo Forman grill inside. I will prepare this dish again.

Cranberry Gelatin Salad I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
This salad is a wonderful change of pace! It was gobbled up in seconds. I wasn't sure if the cranberry sauce was supposed to melt completely so it was left a little chunky as the gelatin had cooled already. Ditto w/the sour cream. It was more of a glob than a streaming ribbon. The flavor, however, was wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Excellent, quick recipe. I used tomato sauce instead of ketchup since someone said the gravy was too sweet. I had to use oil spray because my beef was lean. Also used onion, garlic & celery in patties rather than have it bland as someone else had stated. I didn't have onion soup so I used real onions in the gravy also. Wonderful meal!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
My mother and I enjoyed this recipe immensely. It was very easy to prepare and the tip about using Honey Mustard dressing for the sauce was an excellent one. I prepared mine at 350 degrees instead of 400 because other things were baking as well. In the end I had to sprinkle on paprika to give the dish some color. I will prepare this dish again very soon at the correct temperature to see the difference. Overall, an excellent, easy-to-prepare, nutritious way to prepare salmon. Can hardly wait to try this on some Copper River Salmon.

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
The taste is wonderful. Even the batter was delicious. I added 1/3 c chopped pecans & a little extra nutmeg. I would have given it 5 stars but I had trouble with the cooking time/temp. At the stated temp, 50 minutes wasn't enough. By the time my toothpick came out clean, the crust of my bread was almost burned. I used the 9.5" loaf pan. Can someone figure out what the correct temp and time are?
