Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I took the advice of many reviewers and grilled the steaks instead of cooking in the pan since I was afraid to mess up expensive filet! I cooked mushrooms and onions in butter in a skillet and then put them on a plate to make the reduction. After I simmered the vinegar and red wine until it was reduced, I added the mushroom/onion mixture back to the pan and topped the steaks with it when they were done. It was insanely yummy according to my husband!

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Mixed reviews here, it didn't taste as rich as I'm used to with cream of mushroom soup in finer restaurants, but it wasn't bad either. I did finely dice half of the mushrooms and the other half I just chopped and didn't puree because I like texture. I then sauteed the mushrooms and onions in a little butter before simmering in the broth which I think was a great extra step. The recipe said season to taste and since it seemed a little bland, I added freshly ground sea salt, extra thyme, garlic salt and onion powder. I didn't have any sherry (we don't like it) so I stirred in some white wine instead and that added a great depth ot this recipe. I think I'll try some type of mushrooms other than the everyday variety next time, maybe portabello/shitake mix, etc. I'm also planning to try another recipe on this site "Golden State Mushroom Soup" to see if it turns out more to my liking.

Malibu Bay Breeze

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
One of my favorite drinks EVER! I like to enjoy this one when it's going to be a long night out and I don't want to hit up the vodka too early! I probably use 2 T. of cranberry juice to each 1/4 cup of pineapple, but why measure? It's great either way!

Candied Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
This recipe is great! I can't wait to tell my MIL that acorn squash doesn't have to be baked in the oven. I cooked this for 10 minutes with half the butter and brown sugar called for and then when it was done, scooped it out and added Butter Buds and a little more sugar. I cut the calories in half but didn't lose any of the flavor! We both enjoyed this Soo much and I wished I had another one to cook the same night! It's that good :o) Thanks so much for posting this recipe!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I scaled this recipe to serve four because I had one lb. of pork tenderloin. I didn't change anything else and used Montreal steak seasoning for the rub. It made a very moist tenderloin and did take the full hour to cook completely. I think next time I will add minced garlic to the marinade and make sure to only leave it in for two hours as three and a half hours made it a little too vinegary and salty for our taste. A very easy and quick recipe that I will definitely make again, Thank you.

Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I combined these ingredients the night before so the flavors would "mesh" like regular sausage. I doubled the sage and pepper and also added red pepper flakes. Next time, I will use 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper instead of red pepper flakes so it will be more evenly distributed. I browned the sausage in the skillet, added a little butter and turned this into sausage gravy (just used a package with milk since there isn't grease to bornw flour in like with pork sausage) After it simmered for two hours, I served it to my family over biscuits and nobody knew it was turkey instead of pork!! I'll definitely do this again sometime to save all that saturated fat. I recommend it to anyone!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
This is really great and I have to say that by mistake I probably made it even better! LOL I didn't have any quick cook oats so I used two individual serving size maple and brown sugar packets which exactly equalled one cup! The topping with this addition was out of this world! I reduced the white sugar to 1/2 cup to compensate for this addition since I was afraid of it being way too sweet, but it was delicious! Thanks for this perfect recipe :) FYI: I also mixed the white sugar, flour and cinnamon together then tossed the apples in this mixture to ensure even coating instead of sprinkling it over the top.

Fabulous Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
This was simple and delicious with cabbage straight from the garden! It really showcased the sweetness of fresh cabbage vs. cabbage from the grocery store! I took the advice of a previous reviewer and sauteed an onion in 2 Tbs. of butter then added the broth, cabbage, salt and pepper to simmer for an hour. Yummy!

Campbell's® Beef and Mushroom Dijon

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I really liked this recipe and it was perfect for using up leftover pot roast. I actually sauteed the mushrooms and onions, added the soup and dijon mustard and heated it all up then stirred in the bite sized pieces of already cooked chuck roast to serve. Next time, I would use a little less dijon than the recipe called for since the taste is very powerful, but I thought this was great for a potluck at church when served over rice. Thanks so much for an inexpensive and easy recipe!

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
I made this pie Thanksgiving of 2006 and just found it in my recipe box! Everyone loved it with a few changes I made based on other reviews. I added 2 T. of flour to the coating and used dried cranberries instead of raisins, Yum!! I also left out the walnuts since I don't like them and nobody was complaining :o)

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I did everything according to this recipe except I deglazed the pan with white wine after browning the chops and sauteeing the mushrooms and onions as another reviewer suggested. I will do that next time too, it was fabulous and made the house smell wonderful! Thanks for an awesome recipe that my hubby now requests frequently! I am definitely going to try the suggestion of baking these chops in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes covered with foil to see if they are even more tender and delicious this way!!

Quinoa with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly except for leaving out the parmesan cheese since I planned to use this as a rice substitute to serve with portabello mushroom gravy. I figured that since gravy is fattening enough, I should try to make a more nutritious side dish than white rice! We really enjoyed this dish, but next time I will add garlic salt and onion powder for a boost in flavor since quinoa tends to be a little blah sometimes. Thanks for a great recipe, I will definitely make this again!

Simple Grilled Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Simple? Yes. Delicious? No. I'm so sorry to leave a bad review, but this was not enjoyable for us. I followed the recipe exactly and even grilled the marinated onions as another reviewer advised. I couldn't finish mine and my hubby forced his down just trying not to hurt my feelings. If you want a simple and yummy lamb recipe from this site, try the Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction!

Lemon Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I used this recipe to prepare salmon for baking instead of pan frying it. I added a little blackening seasoning, cut up the lemons, placed them on top of the salmon and baked it at 350 for 25 minutes. Very good, thank you!

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I love this quiche!! It's great that it works without a crust because of all the calories saved! I sauteed some mushrooms and spinach to add and used no butter and less flour. Yum! Can't wait to make this again. The combo of bacon and swiss is my favorite!

Sauteed Portobellos and Spinach

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
We Loved this side dish with grilled rib eyes!! I didn't change much: less butter, more minced garlic, added onion powder and used white wine instead of red (I highly recommend this change!) Yummy and pretty healthy too :o) We will be having this often with dinner.

Chocolate Cherry Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
This cake is the best! It's been around forever known as "Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake" It was the first dessert to disappear at a church function and nobody believed how easy it is to make! The chocolate icing is amazing and Soo easy. I can't wait to try it on other types of cakes/cookies in the future! I added pecans to the icing just because my dad loves them :o) I'm sure it didn't change the flavor all that much. I'm also planning to try this reviewer's ideas soon... "Used a CLASSIC WHITE mix and BLUEBERRY filling. used VANILLA EXTRACT instead of almond, and added 1/2 of LEMON'S ZEST to batter, as well as a handful of huge frozen blueberries. Baked for 32 min in a bundt pan. For frosting I halved the recipe and used WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS in lieu of the chocolate and added the remaining LEMON ZEST from the lemon....absolute perfection. Due to less surface area, it was perfect to halve the frosting recipe for bundt"

Feta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I served this on toasted wheat english muffins with lettuce and pickles. Mixed reviews here between DH and I. He absolutely loved it, but I think regular chicken salad is better. The only two things I changed was leaving out the red pepper because we both dislike it strongly and adding garlic salt. I will make it again sometime since he liked it so much.

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
This was a quick and very easy recipe. Next time, I will probably use less parmesan as it kinda overpowered the taste of the spinach

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I thought this was Delicious!! I did season the beef as I cooked it with garlic and onion powder and creole seasoning too. I also used a box of garlic and herb mashed potatoes instead of making from scratch. I definitely think the boxed potatoes are the way to go!! Next time I will use lower sodium soups since the processed potatoes have so much salt in them. So easy and no leftovers!
