Fried Cinnamon Strips

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Mmmm...these were so easy and tasty! Such a nice light treat (if you don't count the fact that they are fried and coated in sugar...lol). Will definitely make again, they were a hit with kids AND adults.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was fantastic! I had never made corned beef before so I was nervous about how it may turn out but was very pleasantly surprised! I toasted some slices of marble rye with swiss, piled on the meat (sliced easily after sitting on the cutting board for about 15 minutes) and added some 1000-Island dressing. Even the picky younger boys enjoyed. Made me wish I was Irish! ;)

Spinach Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This was fantastic. I borrowed a couple other posters' ideas and added a generous scoop of pesto and garlic to the cheese mixture and spooned a little alfredo on the top as I was serving. Even my meat eating boys didn't miss the meat in this dish. Delicious.

BBQ Chicken Calzones

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
My boys loved, loved this! A little too sweet for me so next time I won't use honey BBQ sauce. I also stuffed in some gargonzola cheese. Yummmmm. So easy to put together, very filling and quite economic! We'll definitely use this one again!

Blue Cheese Waldorf Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
This was SO good. I winged the measurements of everything and left the cayenne out due to personal tastes. It was very light and refreshing but packed big flavors! Will definitely make again, and soon.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
this was delicious. I borrowed other reviewers suggestions. I marinated a couple packs of lean beef stew (already cut in large pieces) in red wine for a couple hours. [Here's a tip for cutting larger cuts of meat, put it in the freezer for about an hour prior to cutting. It's much eaiser!] I then used some garlic in the sauce and fresh mushrooms. A small palmful of rosemary was added as well. I served over rice with some peas and had a very happy family!

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
Yummmmmm. This was heavenly. I didn't change a thing (I don't think...I'm bad at measuring). It was very rich but paired with some simple basil orzo and corn it was a very satisfying meal. Mmmm.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
YES!!! Finally!! I have been cooking forever but have NEVER been able to cook a good pork chop until now. These were outstanding, and besides doubling the "gravy" I didn't change a thing. Yummmmmm.

Baked Hash Browns

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Oh my...I have to be honest up front and say I had little expectations for this, but it was excellent! I wasn't sure what to expect but what I got was a creamy, rich side dish that really complimented some mild grilled fish. So easy and I'll definitely keep this one handy. Thank you!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Yum! I didn't follow the instructions 100%, instead I marinated in the lime, sugar, vinegar mixture with some fresh cilantro. Then I followed the recipe when it was time to cook (discarding the marinade and making fresh sauce). I subbed more cilantro for the oregano. Served in warm tortillas with guac, monterey jack, sour cream and fresh salsa. Mexi rice and black beans on the side. Two of my boys at three tacos! So fresh and delicious. Will definintely make again soon. Such a nice break from heavy ground beef tacos. :-)

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
The title is correct, this is delicious. I didn't measure the potatoes (also did not peel them) or ham and used broth instead of water. About a box and a half. It smelled so good while it was cooking and tasted even better. Very hearty and VERY inexpensive. Will definitely keep in the rotation. Yum Yum!

Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Very tasty! I added a couple hard boiled eggs and used green onions (scallions) instead of chives, just because that's what I had handy. Will definitely make again.

Sweet Grilled Corn

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
Wow these were soo yummy! I skipped soaking the corn (we like ours crispy) and forgot to cut slits in the foil, they did fine and didn't burn. A good alternative to regular butter/salt/pepper.

White Pizza a la Chick Lit

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
So easy and tasty. Great to cut into thin strips and serve like breadsticks. Also delicious to serve with pasta. Will definitely reuse this recipe!

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Very tasty! I decided to just get messy and spread the mayo with my hands. I then sprinkled them generously with McCormick's Montreal Chicken seasoning and then the breadcrumbs. I did broil them for a couple minutes at the end to crisp them up a bit more. Yum!

Pork Chops to Live For

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
Ooh these were really good! I skipped the breading and browned in leftover bacon grease from breakfast (I'm sure that didn't hurt the flavor at all!) I also added some white wine to the 'gravy' - cooked on low so long they literally fell off the bone. Will def make again.

Paprika Chicken with Sour Cream Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
I wasn't sure how this would turn out but we were very impressed with the chicken! I followed other's advice and doubled the spices in the coating. Also added a few splashes of broth to thin the sauce. Will definitely keep this in the rotation. Thanks!

Slow-Cooked Ham 'N' Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This was SO easy and quite good! I didn't want to go to the store, so I had to leave out the celery and water chestnuts. Also, I was using a 16 oz jar of Ragu cheese sauce so I doubled the other ingredients, including a 32 oz bag of (still) frozen broccoli. It was probably finished in about 3 hours but I just kept it warm for the rest of the day, occassionally adding some broth to thin it out. Thank you for the simple supper that we ALL enjoyed!

Rainbow Pasta Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
Have made this twice now and it has been a hit at both cookouts. I cheat and use canned petite diced tomatoes and also added in some black olives. Will definitely be used many more times. Thanks!

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Couldn't find peppered bacon either so just used pepper. I let my 16 year old son make it, the recipe was easy for him. We also used about a half-box of broth and then about a cup of fat free half&half for more sauce. Oh and a 28 oz can of tomatoes. Yum yum!
