Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
Very tasty. The only thing I changed was to add blackening seasoning to the chicken instead of Italian seasoning and I threw a bag of frozen broccoli in to boil with the noodles. Delicious!

Parmesan Knots

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
My kids thought I'd found the secret recipe to the breadsticks at Olive Garden. They were delicious but I am sad that we filled up on the bread instead of our supper. ;)

Not so Sloppy Joe Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
This casserole was delicious! Instead of the usual (robotic) "thank you Mom, this is good" I got "Wow! This is really good!" Hearing that usually makes my day and makes all the hard work worth it. I didn't change a thing. Thanks. :) **update** I've made this 3x now and we prefer the DelMonte brand sauce. It's got a little more "zing" I guess than the Manwich brand. Manwich seems a little bitter or something.

White Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
I made this for dinner and it got rave reviews (I used the Velveeta brand cheese). I made it again the next week for a work potluck and the kids were mad that I didn't bring home leftovers. There weren't any. :) **Update: instead of cheddar use a block of the Mexican velveeta, it melts very smoothly and gives is a very creamy spicy kick**

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
I have made this three times now, it is definitely my favorite soup. The curry and apples makes for such a nice, warming sensation. It is absolultely delicious and I didn't change a bit of the recipe. Thanks!

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
Hmm, let's see, I used a jar of alfredo and a "few" :) tablespoons of pesto w/basil. I doubled the amount of pasta and put in 2 bags of baby spinach leaves from the produce section. YUM! This was incredible. I think next time I'll try to add a bit of curry powder to give it the "florentine" flavor I'm used to eating. Thanks for the recipe!

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
This has become a staple in our home, we have it every 2-3 weeks. I typically try and use brown rice because it's healthier and sometimes use the Asian style chili sauce for its sweetness (to suit the kids' taste). We love this, thank you! **updated comments: why dirty 3 pans? Make it in a dutch oven or similar cast iron pan, brown the meat in it, throw all the other ingredients in, let it cook and then throw the whole thing in the oven. 1 dish to wash!**

Quick and Easy Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
I tried these tonight and they were really tasty! At the end of the grilling time I put a handful of shredded cheese on top and closed the grill for a few minutes. Just like a loaded baked potato!

Mexican-Style Goulash

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
This was very tasty and so easy to prepare. I added a bit more chili powder (I don't measure stuff, just eyeball it) and a 16 oz box of elbow noodles. I put in extra water to compensate and also added a 4 oz can of diced chilies and 1 can of the diced tomatoes/chilies. Simple and filling.

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
This was really, really good. I cook a lot of pasta dishes so I decided to serve it over brown rice, cooked separately. Otherwise I didn't change a thing. I had enough left over to serve the neighbors and they loved it too!

Easy, Cheesy Tortellini Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
My boys LOVED this recipe and have asked for it more than once. I do agree with other reviewers, though, it needs more pasta. I have made it with italian sausage and without, and it doesn't add much to the meal so I'll skip it for the future to save on calories. Thanks!

This recipe is so simple to make, though you wouldn't know by tasting it. We really enjoy this dish! I didn't change a thing.

Rory's Most Wonderful Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I'm not sure what I can say that others haven't already but YUM! I love this stuff. Cornbread is a staple down here in the South and I love this version. :-)

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
This stuff is amazing! The sour cream sounded strange but I never alter the recipe the first time I cook it. I can't wait to make this again (and neither can my co-workers that I shared it with) ;-) **Updated: I made this again for a large group of folks and everyone really enjoyed it. I also add some chopped spinach to the sauce for more nutrition. My 16 yo is learning to cook and needs simple recipes to get started. So thank you to the original submitter.**

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I thought the sauce would be a bit too tangy for the kids but they loved them! And these kids are salisbury steak fanatics. They said it was better than the frozen junk I had been feeding them. Ha!

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
Based on other's reviews I modified this recipe slightly to suit my individual tastes. I cut the chicken into smaller chunks and sauteed it on the stove in olive oil with some garlic (probably 3 grated cloves). I set it in the casserole dish when it was nearly cooked through and then started the sauce using the butter and browned bits in the same skillet. I doubled the wine to 1 cup and the cream cheese (mine had chives and onions) to 8 ounces (all the other ingredients remained the same). When it was heated through I poured over the chicken and baked for about 15-20 minutes. WOW. This was absolutely delicious and I already can't wait to make it again. I think next time I will add some veggies - zucchini, squash, spinach. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

Jambalaya Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
I had never baked jambalaya before today. I'm a fan of the traditional style (cook all day, debone a chicken, etc) jambalaya but this was really good! Mine came out a bit on the salty side but I think that's my fault - I'm not good with measuring, I typically just eyeball stuff. I also sprinkled in a bit of cayenne and some cajun seasoning. My kids loved this & it's so much better for a quick meal than the stuff you buy in a box. A keeper!

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This really is a delicious and versatile recipe. This is the 3rd time I've made it now and this is how we've decided we like it best: 2 10 inch tortillas & then 1 halved tortilla on each side (straight side to the edge of the pan). Half the meat mixture (2 lb ground turkey, diced yellow onion, taco seasoning, 1 14.5 can diced tomatoes & 1 can rotele), 2 cups shredded monterey/colby. Another layer of tortillas. Next is the ricotta with 1 egg and 1 4 oz can chilies whipped together and a can of corn over the top. Another layer of tortillas. Rest of meat with 2 small cans sliced black olives. Another layer of tortillas. 8 oz sour cream + 8 oz salsa mixed over the top of that, topped with 2 cups of mexi-cheese and sliced green onions on top. Bake as directed. This makes enough to feed myself and 3 growing boys with plenty to take into work to share. Thanks so much for the ideas and the recipe!
