Southwestern Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
This was great and my family LOVED it! I did make a few of the suggested changes. I cut down on the number of corn tortillas to about 10/12 and I put a VERY thin layer of the sauce under the tortillas to keep them moist. I only used the Cream of Mushroom Soup and left out the Cream of Chicken. I used light sour cream. I added a can of Ro-tel (spelling?) tomatoes with chilis, I used more cheese (1/2 of which was Pepper Jack and 1/2 Chedder) and I added a small can of HOT chilis to the mix. I also increased the turkey to about 2 cups. I layered sauce, tortillas, turkey cheese, sauce tortillas, turkey and cheese. WE LOVED THIS!! Great EASY meal and what a great way to use up leftover turkey!

Crusty Potato Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
This bread was the BEST!! My bread machine did great mixing it. I followed the suggestion of "spooning" the flour into the cup rather than scooping and I added 1/4 cup more water. I did make a couple of additional changes. I used 3/4 cup instant mashed potatoes and reduced the bread flour to 3 cups. I wanted a bit more potato flavor. I also added a teaspoon of minced garlic and 2 teaspoons of taragon. I served this with minestrone soup on a cold snowy day! Great light loaf of yummy bread!!

Michelle's Blonde Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
This was a really good chicken chili. My family loved it! I always read reviews and make a few changes based on what I read. Here is what I did: I made this in the crock pot so I used whole chicken breasts. They were easy to shred at the end which gave the chicken the texture I wanted. I also added more garlic, cumin and oregano. I find that any dish with beans often needs more spice when it cookes so long. I added a can of Rotel Tomatos (spiced up chopped tomatoes) to it as well. Before adding the beans, I drained them and rinsed them. I always drain and rinse canned beans before using them. I served this with white rice (my husband and son like chili on rice) and grated cheddar cheese.

Italian Leg of Lamb

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
This was the first time I cooked a Leg of Lamb so I don't know a lot about Lamb. My husband has had lamb a lot and he gave the recipe 4 stars. I thought it was very good :)

Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
This was so good!! Even my teenage son loved it (I know he really liked it when he finished the leftovers the next day.) I made a couple of changes based on some ot the reviews. I added twice as much chili powder to it and I also put in about 1/2t of red pepper flakes. This added a little kick but did not make it too spicy. I also put in 2t of onion powder to kick up the onion flavor a bit. With that many beans the spices can quickly get "sucked up". I followed the suggestion of cooking it for 6 hours on the stove with a cover. I am glad I did. After about 5 hours. I took out the ham hocks and threw them away (I don't like the fatty meat on them). I then added about 1 1/2 cups of leaner chopped ham. This was great and I will make it again.

Italian Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This was quick and easy to make. The only thing I didn't care for was the amount of red pepper in it. I cut it in half but it was still too much. I use it a lot in my omlets to flavor the eggs and the pepper was too strong. This would probably be fine in a more Italian type dish.

German Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This wasn't bad. It was very different. I liked it more than my husband, but he is not a big sauerkraut fan and I am. I made a couple of changes based on others' feedback. I used 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 cup 2% milk rather than 2 cups of milk. I also used wide noodles rather than lasagna noodles and I used 1/2 swiss cheese and 1/2 mozzerella.

Easy Guacamole

This is very good and so easy. The second time I made it I added a few cilantro leaves chopped and a couple of tablespoons of salsa.

Baked Flounder

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This was good but not quite 5 star. I used flounder. Next time I make this, I think I am going to saute the mushrooms and green onions just a bit. They were too crunchy for my liking. Maybe that will make it a 5 star recipe!

Chef Scott's Pico de Gallo

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
This was very good and tasted like the Pico de Gallo we had in Mexico. I halved the recipe so I wouldn't have a "ton". I used red wine vinegar as others had suggested. My husband's only request is that next time I put in less cilantro (he is not a huge fan of cilantro). Update.... I have made this many times now and it always gets great reviews! I have given out the recipe a number of times. I usually try and let it sit overnight and I drain out the extra liquid right before serving! I love this recipe!!!

Shrimp and Feta Cheese Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
This was so good! I increased the wine to about 1/2 a cup using 1/4 C for the shrimp (I used frozen) and 1/4 C for the tomatoes. I also used 3 roma tomatoes and a pound of shrimp. I used about 4oz of feta cheese with herbs. I also added fresh spinach (about a cup of baby) to the tomatoes about 2 minutes before they were done. At the same time I added fresh basil and oragano and minced garlic instead of garlic cloves. This was very good. Next time I will add about twice as much spinach and additional garlic. I had the leftovers the next day and they were awesome as well.

Cheryl's Spinach Cheesy Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
This was really good. I added 1 pound of lean sausage to which I browned 1/2 a large sweet onion when the sausage was about half done. I also added more cheese than the recipe called for - I kind of "eye balled" the amount of cheese. We love cheese. I also added about 1 T Italian seasoning to the egg mixture for a little more flavor and I added 5 large mushrooms. Since there are only 2 of us, I made this in 2 smaller square pans. One of them I cooked and one I lined with plastic wrap before adding the pasta mixture. I put the extra pan in the freezer to cook later. I will then pull this out of the pan and freeze it with my meal sealer for quick dinner my husband can put back in the pan and pop in the oven on a night I work late. I baked this with foil on top for the first 30 minutes, as others suggested, to keep it from drying out. Next time I will add twice as much spinach and even more mushrooms.

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This past salad was awesome. It really held it's flavor overnight. I added a little chopped pepperoni and I substituted clamata olives for the black olives. I also cut down on the olive oil and replaced some of it with the oil from a jar of sundried tomatoes.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
Cooking the ham with the honey glaze was very good. I changed the original recipe based on others' suggestions. I used 2/3 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup honey, and 1 t ground gloves for a 9 pound ham. I based it every 10 - 15 minutes. I raised the temperature to 425 for the last 10 minutes of baking rather than broiling it. I decided to use this ratio because I didn't want the ham to be too sweet. I was afraid if it was too sweet I wouldn't be able to use the leftovers in some of my recipes.

Shrimp Francesca

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was quite good. It was a little rich but good. Changes I made: I used Italian seasoned Panko crumbs (to which I added about 1/2 T additional Italian seasoning) which made it crunchier. I melted the butter and then added the garlic and lemon juice to it rather than sprinkle the lemon juice on the crumbs. I thought it would mix in better this way. I also had no Romano cheese on hand so I used parm.

Cheddar Spirals

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This was good. I made it as written with the addition of about 1 t onion powder. I gave it 4 stars because it was almost too creamy. To make it less creamy, I put it in an 9 by 13 pan and baked it at 350 for 30 minutes before serving. Before baking I sprinkled the top with bread crumbs and a bit of parm. cheese. This was just what it needed.
