Broccoli with Rigatoni

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
I used this recipe based on the "6 Dinners under $100" menu.....perfect vegeterian meal w/ bread and a salad! It was an easy quick main dish to make on a weeknight - we love mac n cheese and alfredo and this fits easily into that category. We will be adding this to our menu regularly!!

One-Dish Beef Stroganoff and Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
So quick and easy!! Tasted just as good as my "usual" recipe - but I liked cooking the noodles in the same pan then tossing it all together.....I will add some more seasonings next time, just needed a little more flavor!

Bacon Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Perfect easy dish! I was looking for something simple to make for lunch - the kids are still home on Christmas break and we're sleeping way past breakfast!! I've made this as is w/ hashbrowns on the side - GREAT!!

Roasted Root Vegetables With Apple Juice

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
YUM! I had no idea that I loved all of these root veggies!! Roasting is the way to go! I've made this several times and this last time, I took it to my husband's fire station during our Thanksgiving meal....here are the changes I made: added fresh brussel sprouts - after cutting the veggies, toss them in olive oil and sprinkle w/ kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper - roast until slightly tender - meanwhile reduce the butter, wine and juice mixture - pour over veggies and continue roasting until thoroughly done - occassionally stirring.....

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I used this recipe for a friend who's just had a baby - they loved it, but I must admit that I tweaked the recipe a bit!!! I had swiss steak on hand and it turned out sooooo tender in this dish. Also used fresh mushrooms and chives...stirred slightly cooked egg noodles in w/ only 8oz sour cream toward the end of the cooking time...and I didn't have fresh parsley to top it off...

Vegan Yogurt Sundae

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
This is similar to another recipe I have - we call it "breakfast sundae" and it is also non-vegan...I use fresh berries and sprinkle unmelted chocolate chips on top - my kids like our original version better and it doesn't include the extra sugar and butter!!! But, I think occassionally, I will like to have the melted chocolate drizzles on - it makes it seem like a real sundae!!

Maple Glazed Chipotle Goat Cheese Lamb Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
This was an experiment for me!! I've never cooked lamb before, but recently found some pre-made patties in the quick sale meat section, so I decided to try them. Since they were already made into patties and wrapped with bacon, I can't give a full 5-star rating because I didn't follow this recipe exactly - I used the salt, pepper, rosemary and some minced garlic as a rub - then brushed them with maple syrup during cooking. I liked the flavor enough, that I will be keeping this recipe to make as directed - I think ground lamb as a burger with the other ingredients mixed in and served with roasted potatoes as a side will be an excellent meal.

Creamy Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Wow - I didn't read the reviews before I made this and I'm glad I didn't, because we loved it!!! My kids all went back for 2nds and my husband, who doesn't really like chicken, said this is a keeper!! The sauce was not as thick as I was expecting, so next time I will try to make it thicker....I served it with garlic toast that was great for mopping up the juices - next time I will add the Ceasar salad that another reviewer suggested!

Lady Linda's Delightful Shrimp and Scallop Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
This is a good recipe, but I did use less red pepper flakes for the kids' sake!! I really like Asian food and love to find new recipes that are easy and I can cook at home!

Pepperoni Pizza Pita

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
This is a great idea!! I needed a QUICK meal the last week of school and this worked great! The kids love the "personal" size and they can put whatever they want on it - I love not making dough!! I sprayed each pita on both sides with cooking spray and put them in the oven to crisp before topping...we used mini pepperoni, veggies and lots of cheese. This will definitely be a staple in our house!!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I have made these for years as an appetizer and never even thought about making them for breakfast!!! What a quick treat and the kids thought they were great with fruit and milk! The only change I made was to use less biscuit mix because they always come out so dry....next time I will use another reviewer's tip about adding sour cream and cream cheese. It's also good to try different sausage and/or cheese to make new flavors.

Cheesy Baked Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
GREAT!!! My kids are not fish lovers, but they all raved over this - I'm sure it is the cheese!!! This is a definite keeper and next time I will bake it over asparagus, as other reviewers suggested!

Hungry Man's Hash Browns

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
We make a recipe similar to this all the time, especially when we want "breakfast for dinner"....usually I add chopped bell pepper in with the onion and when it is done, top it off with LOTS of shredded cheddar....sometimes I plate and add fried or scrambled eggs on too!!!

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
I needed a quick meal (with ingredients I have on hand) for the kids and sitter tonight - put this together in less than 10 minutes....I did make some changes: put uncooked spaghetti on the bottom of crockpot, added chopped chicken and topped w/ slices of American cheese....subbed cottage cheese for cream of chicken, mixed w/ cream of mushroom and rotel - poured over other ingredients! It smells great and I think they will love it with a veggie and some cheese muffins.

I have made this several times for ladies' dinners and I always get RAVE reviews!! It's a great way to use up those small chip pieces leftover in the bag and I also add avocado slices. It's quick and easy to fix and tastes FABULOUS!!

Tater Tot Taco Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
Since I have been working in the evening, it has been up to Dad to feed the kids - so I've been on the lookout for easy recipes that they all will love. This one fits the bill!! The kids like all of the ingredients and the adults were able to add extras like jalapenos, salsa and olives. This recipe will definitely go into Dad's cookbook for future meals!

Emerald Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
What a great new way to get some fruit into a meal!! I did have to use some substitutions: I didn't have yogurt or orange juice, so I used sour cream and lime juice, no orange peel....turned out great!
