Stroganoff Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
I was in the mood for a thinner cream soup so I made with only 1 can cream of mushroom soup and used only about 1/4 c sour cream. I also only had 1/2 lb ground beef so I threw in some chopped broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and celery to supplement. I browned the ground beef and veggies with garlic and some cayenne, then drained. Then added 3 cups beef broth instead of water and a splash of red wine. Brought to a boil, then reduce heat and simmered about 10 mins. I used an immersion blender to get the big chunks of veggies smaller. Then added cream of mushroom soup, heated through. Then removed from heat and added sour cream so it wouldn't curdle. Finally, added cooked egg noodles. I would make this again but definitely add fresh mushrooms. This was a good base recipe for me to adjust to my own taste and what I had on hand. I wanted a cream soup but had no milk on hand. The canned soup and sour cream did the trick. I also think fresh parsley would be a great addition. Yummy lunch to make on a day off!

Cheese and Olive Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2015
This was fabulous. I'm not a huge fan of olives but I wanted to try this because it looked different. I didn't have the onion powder so I left it out. Served with Bolognese over angel hair. Will definitely make again.

Mom's Peach Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2015
This was good. I used thawed frozen sliced peaches and I added cinnamon and cornstarch to the peaches as suggested by reviewers. I only used about 1/3 c brown sugar and it was still very sweet. Next time try 1/4 c brown sugar.

Mini Ham And Cheese Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2015
Very good. I've made these a few times now. Turkey works well too if you want a variety. The first time with the butter mixture on the top of bun. Too greasy to hold onto. This last time I buttered the inside only and that worked better but I only did one side of the bun. Next time: try butter mixture on both insides of the buns. Made with 7 layer salad for a nice make ahead dinner. 6 of these are good for the 2 of us with a hearty side for dinner.

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
Great! I used half mayo and sour cream and added a splash of cider vinegar to the dressing. I subbed garbanzos for the peas and hard boiled egg for the cauliflower. I really liked the parm cheese in the dressing. I sprinkled salt and pepper in the salad layers. Next time I will add salt and pepper to dressing as well. Served with mini ham and cheese rolls.

Creamy German Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2015
SO easy! I added a shredded carrot for color. Didn't measure any ingredients. I made the dressing in a large Pyrex dish that has a cover. Then I added the cabbage and carrot and just put the lid on and shook it all up. Served it right in the glass Pyrex dish. red bell pepper or purple cabbage would be great too for more color. Served with BBQ chicken and lemon roasted veggies and potatoes.

Grilled Stuffed Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
My boyfriend made this exactly as written in the oven. I made sugar snap peas with corn and curry rice for sides. Delicious! This chicken would go with almost anything.

Broiled Lobster Tails

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2015
Yum! First time making lobster tails. This was definitely quick and easy. The 1/2 c melted butter was way too much. Since I used a brush on the raw lobster I ended up throwing the remaining butter out. Maybe try 1/4 c melted butter? Other than that, perfect!

Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2015
I used apple cider vinegar as suggested by other reviewers and less than the recipe called for. I also added onion, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper. I tasted it halfway through and it needed salt to bring all the flavors out. I would make again but add the apple further into the cooking process. Served with Dr Pepper BBQ ribs and cheesy potatoes.

Bacon Pea Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2015
Had originally planned on making tuna salad and had already boiled the pasta when I realized-out of tuna. I found this doing an ingredient search for peas and bacon. So I easily adapted it into a pasta salad. I had already chopped some pickles and carrots so I threw those in. I ended up using only 1/2 c of peas. Turned out great. I agree with other reviewers to wait until the end to add the bacon. Quick, easy, and budget friendly. Served with cheeseburgers and potato chips. Looking forward to taking leftovers for lunch tomorrow

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2015
Delicious! I found a great deal on fresh never been frozen shrimp at my local seafood market. I used half butter half olive oil add added a splash of pinot grigio. I had a bunch of shallots so I minced them instead of the sliced garlic. Use a good paprika. I used Hungarian half sharp paprika and it made all the difference. It added a wonderful zip. Served with pasta and a salad.

Cabbage, Potato and Baked Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2014
I wasn't in the mood for a super thick soup so I chose to thin it out. I simmered a very meaty ham bone in much more than 4 c water and eliminated the potatoes. I cooked it for about 2 hours. Then just dumped all the veggies (with the addition of carrots and corn for color) and simmered another 20 mins or so. Added the pork and beans when the veggies were tender. I tried a bowl without apple cider vinegar and it was good. Then I added a splash to another bowl as suggested by another reviewer. I liked the addition very much. I enjoyed it very much and I would like to make it just the same way. Great use of a cheapo can of pork and beans!

Pan-Poached Alaskan Salmon Piccata

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
My sauce was thinner than I would have liked. Maybe I didn't let the liquid reduce enough? Other than that the salmon was cooked perfectly and very tender. I have never poached salmon before. Very good. Served with angel hair, a mushroom spinach red pepper sauté, and cheesy garlic bread.

Old-Fashioned Chicken And Slick Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2014
This was delicious. Didn't have the sweet potatoes so left them out. I had bone in chicken pieces so I covered them with water and simmered with bay leaves, whole peppercorns, and whole garlic cloves for an hour. Then strained the broth into a bowl and returned to pot. Threw the chicken pieces in the freezer so I could pick off the meat. Then I added the veggies and meat and cooked for about 30 mins. For the dumplings I used bacon grease instead of chicken fat. Then garnished with scallions.

Pan-Seared Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2014
This was delicious. I used blackened seasoning instead of salt and pepper and made it in my cast iron skillet. I served it with a marinated tomato and green pepper garden salad and broccoli cheese rice. Everything came together in under 15 minutes. Will probably make this once a month.

Santa Fe Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
I really enjoyed this. I found a spicy ranch dressing mix that worked great for this. I used fresh corn cut off the cob and fresh cubanelle peppers. I used fire roasted canned tomatoes which added wonderful flavor. Garnished with fresh sliced avocado. The fresh corn and avocado really made this dish.

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
I make this about once every 3 months or so. I fill it with different veggies to switch it up. Chicken, spinach, onions, mushrooms, fresh basil, etc...It is always delicious. This last time I forgot to dry my noodles off and they were nearly impossible to roll. Sometimes I make my own Alfredo.
