Macaroni and Cheese with Ground Beef, Salsa and Green Chiles

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I used a box of mac and cheese and added some shredded cheese to make it creamier. Also added some sweet bell peppers, fresh garlic, and a can of hominy because I had them on hand. The BF really liked this and it was super easy so I would make it again. If you use a box of mac and cheese this only feeds 3 or 4. We barely had leftovers but I didn't fix any sides. I prefer the cajun macaroni recipe from this site.

Easy Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
I cut the chicken into smaller pieces so it would be cooked through. I also added some fresh basil, garlic, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper. Served with a green salad and angel hair pasta. Will definitely make this again. So easy!

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Great recipe and very easy. I was pressed for prep time so I cheated and used a bottled sauce. I will make again and try the recipe for the sauce as I am sure it is delicious. Served with sausage and sauerkraut in the slow cooker, succotash, mashed potatoes, and a green salad for a Labor Day BBQ.

Slow Cooker Sauerkraut and Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Delicious. Used beef smoked sausages sliced on the bias. Only change I made was to rinse off the sauerkraut first. So easy. Served as a side for Labor Day BBQ with grilled ribs, mashed potatoes, succotash and a salad. Will make again!

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
Mixed reviews here. Boyfriend liked it. I wasn't a fan. I added red wine, crushed red pepper, and balsamic vinegar for more flavor as suggested by reviewers. The flavors of the stuffing mix didn't blend well with the canned tomatoes. To me it almost tasted like they were just heated up and thrown together. I am glad I tried it since the BF liked it. I won't be making this again. I wonder if fresh diced tomatoes with chicken broth would improve this dish.

Beef Taco Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
Simple, easy, inexpensive, and tasty. I added garlic, onion, red bell pepper, taco seasoning, and some hot sauce to the meat. Then added sliced black olives on top of the cheese. Was requested to make it again. Served with a green salad. Next time will use half the meat and add some beans.

Pork Chops Paprikash

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
I thought this was very good. I had a can of tomato soup that I wanted to use up so it was perfect for that. The chops were very juicy. Some of the reviewers said it was bland so I seasoned the chops first with seasoned salt and subbed white wine for the water. I added sliced mushrooms, green pepper, and garlic when I was cooking the onions. I used a very high quality Hungarian sharp paprika. This made all the difference. It adds a nice kick to any dish that calls for paprika. I served this with steamed broccoli and cauliflower for an easy weeknight meal. I would make this again. The boyfriend LOVED it.

Mushroom Swiss Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
I subbed 1 can of shrooms and used ground turkey instead of beef and they were still fabulous. The mushrooms gave the burgers a very rich flavor. Will definitely make them again. Great with dijon mustard and sliced red onion. Served with grilled veggies and pasta salad.

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
Very good! I used broccoli stalks shredded in the food processor instead of the green cabbage. I also used half fresh basil and cilantro and subbed out half of the veg oil for sesame oil. I have made many variations of asian coleslaw but this was the first one with peanut butter. I liked it a lot. Some toasted sesame seeds would be a great addition. Served as a side for Asian Spicy Tuna Salad sandwiches also from this site.

Asian Spicy Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
I liked this. I used the optional curry powder. It wasn't really spicy, though.I had some leftover hamburger buns so I buttered and toasted them in the toaster oven. Served with Asian coleslaw also from this site for a quick and easy late Sunday lunch/early dinner. Perfect for a hot day and something a little different than the usual tuna salad.

Basic Broiled Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
This was delicious, simple, fast, inexpensive, and healthy. What more can you ask for? I also used BLSL chicken breasts and broiled 3 mins each side as reviewers suggested. Served with broccoli cheddar rice and a fully loaded green salad. I will make this regularly from now on.

Summer Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
This was very good. A nice use of dill from the garden. I added a little sugar and next time would add onion because I love onions. Very good side to go with curry rice and grilled sausages.

Bell Peppers and Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
A little bland for my taste as written but a great base recipe. Added some lemon juice, mushrooms, parmesan, fresh herbs (basil, lovage, and dill). I used the pasta water after boiling it. I also added some cooked shrimp to fill up my man :) I would have added white wine if I had any on hand. A very nice use for those cute little sweet peppers that come in a bag.

tuna stuffing patties

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
Very good. Left out the cheese and carrot. Subbed with chopped onion and celery. Had to use miracle whip for mayo and it worked great. Greased a baking dish and baked at 400 degrees 10 mins each side. Served with tater tots and a cuke tom salad with lemon dill dressing drizzled over everything. Will make again.

Jenny's Cuban-Style Slow-Cooker Chicken Fricassee

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
This was very easy and good. Changes I made per reviews- cut potatoes into large chunks, added a ton more spices (cumin, ground coriander, onion powder, garlic powder, seasoning salt), and skinned the chicken pieces. I had planned on sprinkling with cilantro but mine had gone bad. Would have been a nice addition. I also added a cornstarch paste towards the end to help thicken the sauce a bit. I really liked the flavor the wine added. I served with cheese quesadillas and black beans and rice. A great base recipe to play around with to suit your taste! Will make again.

Cucumber-Carrot Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
East and very pretty. Served with Marinated Wild Salmon also from this site and brown rice. I had to use cilantro as I was out of green onions. A nice sub or addition if you have any on hand. I liked the vinegar but definitely reduce the quantity if you are sensitive to its strength.

Horseradish Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 25, 2012
I greased a broiling pan and used that instead of the baking dish. I also baked at 350 for 35 mins then broiled as suggested. The top crisped up nicely but the bottom was soggy. I want to try these again because of ease of preparation. Think next time I will only spread half the topping on top side, bake, flip and spread the other side with remaining topping and continue baking. Then broil each side a few mins. I bet crushed up stuffing mix would add even more flavor. Served with baked mac and cheese and green beans with corn and dill butter. Great use of some homemade breadcrumbs from the freezer.

Smothered Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
This was easy and economical. A great base recipe to make your own. I seasoned my chops well and browned them, placed in bottom of slow cooker, mixed 1 can cream of mushroom, minced garlic, 1/2 an envelope of dried onion soup mix, about 1/4 c white wine, and 1 can of mushrooms. Then poured over the chops. I cooked this on low 6 hours and it was perfect. Finished it off with a little sour cream to help cut the salt. Served with pasta. Definitely not gourmet but a good pantry/ freezer meal when you don't feel much like cooking and are low on groceries.
