Cindy's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
I had never made jambalaya before, but had some leftover cooked cilantro lime shrimp from Costco, and some leftover cooked brown rice, so I fed shrimp and rice into the ingredients search and came up with this. So easy and flexible! I had no green pepper, celery, sausage, or cajun seasoning, but added in some ham, Old Bay seasoning, and chipotle chili pepepr seasoning. Great meal!

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
Easy and delicious! Next time I'll try, as at least one reviewer suggested, to just dump in the bean liquids with the beans. I used 2 Tbsp chili powder and 4 cans of diced tomatoes. (For those skeptical about oregano in chili, oregano is one of the ingredients in chili powder.)

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2012
This is WONDERFUL pudding, but be sure to use a whisk and NEVER STOP WHISKING! That's how to get the right thickness and no burning. I had all my ingredients measured out for a triple batch, when I found my milk was prematurely spoiled! Yuck! So I used a can of evaporated milk and one of sweetened condensed milk, and some water to get enough liquid. Since the triple batch calls for 3 egg yolks, I just used 2 whole eggs instead, and cut out the sugar because of the the sweet milk. I also used olive oil instead of butter, as I am cutting bad fats out of my diet. It was DELICIOUS!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
This was a big hit at our house, especially when I added baking mix dumplings on top. The only other changes were because of what we had on hand: wine instead of beer, no sausage, tomato soup instead of tomato paste, and less spice, because that's what we like, and added chicken broth to make it soupier to accomodate the dumplings. Will definitely be making again.

Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
So delicious! My daughter's Mexican mother-in-law makes something very similar, and I had such a craving for it that I made this with what I had on hand. Used my favorite canned salsa instead of tomatoes and peppers, didn't add olives or avocado, and added a dash of balsamic vinegar. I can't stop eating it!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
I'm going to jump on the bandwagon... yes, this really IS that good and this easy. I made it mostly as presented: just cut the amount of peppers in half, since I am not good with a lot of spices. But even with that cut down, they still give this dip a wonderful flavor. I also mixed some cheddar-jack cheese in with the parmesan on top, and added the Panko crumbs others have suggested. I also sprinkled a little paprika on top for color. Baked it for 20 min. at 450. My young adult son asked me yesterday if I could make some cheese dip just for the family. This is so different than what we usually make, that I wasn't sure it would be what he had a taste for. He took one taste and said, "Oh, yeah! This is exactly what I was after, I mean, it's better than I was after!"

Hawaiian Bread, Rolls, or Cinnamon Swirl

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
This is DELICIOUS! I made 4 batches of it my first week! My only changes are to increase the recipe by 2/3 (my basis is to use 5 cups of flour: 3 of whole wheat and 2 of bread flour), add 2 T vital wheat gluten (for the whole wheat), 1/4 cup flax seed (for extra healthiness), use olive oil instead of margarine, and coconut oil (it stores with a butter texture) instead of coconut flavoring. (See my custom recipe for all amounts). I let the machine do the hard work, then form it into two loaves or 2 1/2 dozen small rolls. My favorite loaf was to turn it into cinnamon swirl bread. Yummy! I used the rolls to make the "Easy Ham and Cheese Appetizer Sandwiches" on this site. SO good!

Chicken Tetrazzini IV

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Love this easy, sure-fire way of preparing the white sauce! I made this at the last minute and thus did not have all of the ingredients, but we all liked it. My husband does NOT like mushrooms, so I substituted broccoli. Made extra sauce by adding more chicken broth, and used milk rather than cream, just to keep it less fattening. Did not have any wine or sherry, but it was still tasty. Needs more salt. And next time I'll probably also add onion and garlic, but this is a great base from which to flex in many directions.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
This was outstanding! The flavor of the sauce it makes is awesome. I had a big bag of frozen sweet potato fries I needed to use up. I made the following substitutions: chicken broth and sherry instead of water, ham & bacon for the meats, a can of ranch beans instead of black (this gave it the little zing that some reviewers missed), I did not use the chili pepper, I simmered it for over an hour. Delicious.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Just finished eating this meal. Wow! Delicious! Because of what we had on hand, I used a bottled honey-mustard marinade and used the real bacon. We don't like to bake chicken in the oven because even in recipes that say, "It's SO moist," it usually tastes dry to us. So I cubed the breasts and simply kept sauteing them until they were cooked. I had already put the sauce together and simmered it in a pan on the stove for about 15 minutes. Put noodles in serving bowl, added the chicken on top, put the sauce over that, and added the bacon and cheese last. Wonderful. I'm anxious to try it again with the teriyaki basting sauce.

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
We're trying to eat healthier and this fits right into my plan: no cheese, cream, or butter. My husband loved it, as did I. Because of what I had on hand I used broken whole wheat linguini instead of orzo, canned tomatoes instead of spinach, yellow bell peppers (because I originally misread "red pepper flakes"), and added some Tabasco sauce.

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
Delicious, but I'll cut down on salt next time, and ours had to cook 2 hours before the rice was soft.

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I had never tried chicken piccata before, but this is abolutely delcious, a wonderful, delicate flavor! I pounded the breasts flat, and double-dipped them (flour, then eggs, then flour again, then let them sit about 10 minutes so the coating would not come off. Wonderful.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Lives up to its awesome name and reputation, absolutely. I took this to a funeral dinner today, and baked a small portion of it for myself last night. Delicious. I made a 9x13 pan, and baked for 90 min. I added sauteed chopped celery, green pepper, and red pepper. I had an envelope of "roasted corn soup" that I mixed in, dry, and I also added a 3/4 cup of divine garlic-gourney cheese that I bought for crackers. Since it came in a 3 pack, I thought it would add a bit of the pizazz that others have said the flavor needs. Oh, and I also added about a cup of grated low fat Mexican cheese. I will definitely be cooking this over many times.
