Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
Really great soup! Quick and easy ... will be my 'go to' potato soup for sure and I think it'll lend itself to lots of other things as well ... I'll be adding other veggies for an additional twist ... thanks for sharing!

Broccoli Cheese Soup V

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
this soup is fantastic ... I've been making it for years now ... the only change I make is to use FF 1/2 & 1/2 in place of the milk to give it a creamier consistency. Be careful ... don't heat too quickly or the cheese will burn and stick to the bottom of the pan ... heat very gently and it won't burn or curdle!

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
This was very good ... I didn't have any tomatillos, so I skipped them ... used a can of corn, instead of fresh ... added extra cumin and coriander and about a TBSP of red pepper flakes. Will definitely make again, it was a hit!

Italian Chicken and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This was very good ... I added a chopped onion, a handful of chopped mushrooms and a can of diced tomatoes, Italian style. I did cut the cayenne in half, like others suggested ... and next time I'll cut it in half again. It was too spicy and the cayenne overpowered the rest of the flavors. We actually LOVE spicy foods, but this didn't enhance the flavors ... it took over. I will add a zucchini and a yellow squash next time and make it more of a complete meal.

Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
quite bland and needed almost an hour for the apples to get soft ... I recommend more brown sugar and cinnamon to give this some flavor ...

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
followed exactly as written ... pretty darn bland ... good base, but needs help ... not sure exactly what to do to jazz it up but I'll mess with it ...

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
my brother turned me onto this recipe ... he said he added cooked chicken at the end and used it as a complete meal ... I tried it the same way and we loved it. This will make the regular rotation in our house ... I don't buy frozen corn, so I used a can, drained, instead.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
this is the best guacamole I've had ... the balance of flavors is great and I get rave reviews every time I serve it ... this is one of the few recipes that I don't make any changes to, it's great just the way it's written.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I've been making this soup for a while now ... and like most cooks, have made some changes. I cook 2 chopped carrots, a chopped onion and 8 oz of sliced mushrooms ... set those aside until I add the turkey and 1/2 & 1/2 mixture ... I only use half of the butter and flour to save on calories and double the water and chicken broth ... this soup is still thick and creamy ... thanks for a great recipe.

Mexican Sour Cream Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This was fantastic ... I did, like most cooks, make some minor modifications. I added a Knorr chipotle bouillon cube and a packet of Knorr Sazon seasoning packet (found in the international aisle) to the rice before cooking. I sauteed 1/2 an onion and 2 cloves of garlic and added those to the rice mixture before baking. I was out of cilantro, so that got left out. This was some of the best Mexican style rice we've ever had. I WILL be making this again and again. Thanks so much for sharing.

New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I think I cooked too many potatoes because there really wasn't much sauce in the bottom of the bowl ... however, the flavor was great ... I'll be making this again and cutting back on the amount of taters. I added more green onions because we love them but kept everything else the same. Thanks for a great new twist on ordinary taters.

Italian Sausage Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
had some Italian Turkey Sausage to use and chose this recipe ... turned out very good and I'll be making this again ... I think next time I might use Great Northern Beans instead of Kidney Beans though ... I also think that this would be good with some mushrooms in it ... seasonings were perfect as written in the recipe ...

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I made this for Christmas Eve dinner and it got rave reviews. I followed other users suggestions and used brown sugar and balsamic vinegar in the glaze. I doubled the rub and also added thyme and rosemary. I only used a 3 lb pork loin to feed 5 but doubled the glaze ... turned out to be way too much glaze and I have about a pint of it left over. I would double the glaze if I were using a 6 lb pork loin next time ... we will absolutely be having this again as it's a different approach than I normally take (usually a spicy rub and cook on the grill). Thanks for a wonderful pork loin recipe!

Pizza On The Grill I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
If we could give this 7 stars we would! This is THE BEST way to make pizza ever ... tastes like it came from a wood fired oven ... simply amazing ... we used the basic dough recipe but added our own toppings to suit our tastes. I cut the dough in 1/2 and made 2 smaller pizzas from it ... I broiled pepperoni until it was crispy, took that out and put onions and green peppers in the broiler until cooked ... used homemade spaghetti sauce instead of pizza sauce from a jar. The second pizza was BBQ chicken ... I pounded a chicken breast flat and grilled w/ bbq sauce ... broiled red onions and chopped fresh cilantro ... The results of both were simply outstanding ... I can't wait to try more different types of pizza toppings ... I think next I'll do shrimp and pesto pizza! Seriously, stop reading the reviews and make this pizza!

West Coast Cod and Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I'm rating this a 4 because my better half wasn't crazy about it, but I thought it was excellent ... I substituted FF half & half for the heavy cream and eliminated the dill ... I'll be making this again but might use a different fish other than cod (Halibut, perhaps)

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
this is the best Spanish rice I've ever made ... I've tried a lot of the Spanish and Mexican rice recipes from this site, but this one is the clear winner. I followed a few of the other reviews suggestions and made sure to brown the rice, added 3 cloves of minced garlic and also used chicken broth in place of the water. The result was outstanding! Served with a sprinkle of cheese and a dollop of sour cream, it was the prefect compliment to our Mexican dinner ... will be making this again and throwing out the old recipes ... thanks for a winner!

Maple Salmon with Mushroom Couscous

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
Made both the salmon and couscous for dinner tonight and my boyfriend and I just loved them both. The couscous goes really well with the sauce on the salmon. I added a bit of red pepper flakes to give it a bit of a kick to contrast with the sweet maple syrup and that combo worked well. Our favorite salmon recipe is the Baked Dijon Salmon from this site, but we're adding this to the rotation because it was so good.

Cilantro Serrano Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
Outstanding! Used FF 1/2 & 1/2 and low fat mayo ... 4 serranos and 4 cloves of garlic ... 3/4 of a bunch of cilantro. I poured it over Tilapia and baked them. Served with rice and roasted asparagus. We just LOVED this sauce ... next time I'll add at least 1 more serrano pepper. After dinner we were looking for a snack and ate this with tortilla chips ... delicious that way also! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!!

Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
this recipe gets 5 stars for the taste combined with how quick and easy they are to make. I added about 1/2 cup more blueberries because I had some I needed to use up ... great recipe, it's my 3rd time making it!

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
this was pretty good but needed a few minor modifications in order to be a 5 star recipe. First, the seasonings weren't quite enough for me and need to be doubled (otherwise it will be bland). I don't think that sharp cheddar is the way to go either. Next time I make this I'll try mozzarella for a more mild flavor. We love onions and next time I'll add a whole sweet onion to sautee with the zucchini and only cook the green onions for a minute or two before adding to the casserole dish. I also think that fresh sliced mushrooms would be good in this recipe. I will be making it again as it has potential to be out of this world! Thanks for the recipe ...
