Provincial Tomatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
they were tasty but didn't blow me away either. It was a nice change for a side dish. Though, next time I'll likely try some different herbs/cheese combos to make them more flavorful.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
I left out the onion because i didn't want to take away from the cheese flavor but then it ended up being too bland for me. next time i'll use a sharper cheese.

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
very good sauce. Made this to marinade, baste and dip our ribs in. Got lots of compliments on it. I used prepared mustard instead of powder. Then I added some cayenne for a kick, honey to make it sweeter and some smoked paprika to round it out. Tasty and a snap to make.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
I browned the meat in EVOO. Add the onions the last two minutes to the meat. Move meat and onion to the crock pot and use about 1/2 c. red wine to deglaze the pan. I also added 1/2 tsp dried thyme and oregano for flavor.

Spicy Chicken Curry Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
This soup was ok...but not memorable. The spiciness/pungency of the curry paste you use must vary significantly because 1 tbs did not make mine very flavorful or at all spicy. We were dumping red pepper and soy sauce in our bowls to give it more flavor. I used Thai Kitchen brand which i've enjoyed for other recipes...but if I make this again i'll have to add more than called for even though other reviewers said theirs turned out too spicy. You really have to season to taste with this one. I also added some celery, yellow onion and red bell pepper which was nice. I'll also add less stock so its thicker if there is a next time.

Chicken Fricassee

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
My husband really enjoyed this dish and said I should make it again. I omitted the green onion because I didn't have any on hand and used chicken breast cut into smaller strips because it's what I had as well. Be sure to cook the roux until it is nutty in fragrance and significantly changes color. 30-40 minutes. I used the full amount of Cayenne and it was just right. It needed a bit more salt at the end but otherwise the flavor was delicious. Also, after cooking the roux, meat and veggies I threw it all in the crock pot along with the seasonings to cook for 2-3 on low.

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
awesome! I use turkey or chicken italian sausage. cook the bacon first, remove then cook the onion in the bacon drippings, adding the garlic the last couple of minutes. I also used half and half rather than cream. Yum!!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Very yummy! Great for a football game! I used chicken tenders (breasts pounded out and cut into strips). I added a little onion and garlic powder and seasoning salt to the flour mixutre too. And i shallow fried (browned them) in a skillet rather than deep frying to save on some calories/oil. We made them into buffalo chicken sandwiches. On a hamburger bun with mayo, blue cheese, onion and lettuce. They were a huge hit. We'll do these again for sure - and next time with a little more hot sauce for more kick.

Pasta with Gorgonzola and Sweet Onion

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
This is good...but it's just missing something. You really have to love the pungency of the gorgonzola to like this dish, but even then, it's a little much. The sweetness of the caramelized onions are the star of the show - but it needs more sweet. I'll put it this way, there is a reason I love to put dried cranberries and candied nuts on my salads to compliment the pungent gorgonzola. This dish too needs something bright/tangy/or sweet to help compliment and complete it. I just don't know what that is. But if you're trying it as is I really enjoyed adding mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and spinach to the mix.

Campbell's® Golden Chicken with Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
With the changes I made this recipe was very tasty for a slow-cooker meal. A lot of other reviewers said the lemon was overpowering - however, i liked the amount. I went for more of a piccata type sauce by adding 2 T capers. I also added a good grind of black pepper and some parsley before cooking. Mine cooked about 3 hr 45 min on high when i put the chicken in frozen it was still a bit over cooked. I didn't use the carrots and didn't serve over noodles, but this is a tasty base for a recipe. Try the capers if you like the flavors of a tangy piccata but skip this one if you're looking for a creamy mild chicken recipe.

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
This recipe needs some seasoning - I added 3/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tsp vanilla. I also made some changes based on what i had on hand. I used 1c. whole milk with 1 T white vinegar in place of the buttermilk and all purpose flour in place of the whole wheat flour if you don't have it. I rarely have those ingredients on hand but it worked wonderfully with my substitutions. The all purpose flour lacks the nutrition of the whole wheat but it also makes them light and fluffy. Because my applesauce had no sugar added I added a little extra brown sugar (1 heaping 1/2 c scoop). The were yummy served warm with butter and some honey. Delightful! *Also they only need 20-25 minutes in the oven. Not 30!

Chicken with Stuffing

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Very nice quick and easy way to get dinner on the table on a busy day. My stuffing turned out a bit mushy but I'd still make it again. These are my changes: 1. use chicken thighs - I can see why some reviewers said their chicken was dry if you used breasts. 2. sprinkle seasoning on the chicken before adding sauce - pepper, garlic powder, etc. 3. it did not need 1/4 c. butter. Next time I'd try adding about 1 T instead.

Skewered Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
precooked the potatoes about 10 minutes in the microwave in a casserole dish - completely covered in water. Then tossed with EVOO and seasonings (salt, garlic powder, black pepper, rosemary and thyme is what i used but a host of different flavor combinations would be great). I used the evoo instead of may for health factors and after reading other review that it made it gloppy. Grilled as driected. we loved them!

Super Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
Delicious! The marinade is great. I only let mine sit for about 4 hours and it was tasty. Using the marinade as a sauce is pretty salty. If you think 'steak sauce' it might work. But I added some honey to mine to cut the saltiness. May just cut back initially on the soy sauce in the future.

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
This is a great foundation for a good quiche. You can make adjustments to taste. I should warn that this is definitely a DEEP dish recipe. I used store bought deep dish crusts and still had too much filling. For alternative options you can try mozerella, cheddar, feta, or a combination or cheeses, 1/2 tsp thyme and or basil, sausage, ham, 1 cup frozen thawed spinach, 1/2 c. chopped mushrooms, etc. The options are endless. Also, I should add that I prebaked the crust at 350 for 10 minutes and then for two quiches to set it took closer to 50 mintues at 350. Happy Baking!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
Its impossible to eat only one of these delectable cookies! Absolutely awesome recipe! The ONLY change i made was rolling my dough balls in white sugar before pressing down with a fork on the cookie sheet. They are a moist chewy and a perfect balance between salty sweet peanuty goodness.

Stuffed Shells IV

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
This meal always gets rave reviews at my house. I use sweet italian sausage rather than ground turkey. And I substitute onion and garlic powder for the real deal if i'm short on time and be sure not to over do if you already have a lot of flavor by using sausage. The mushrooms can be left out depending on the tastes of the crowd you're cooking for. Then i prefer ricotta over cottage cheese.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
awesome recipe! I halved this recipe and made it in a 9x9. I used 5 cloves of garlic and a little over a cup of ricotta. I also sauteed my raw chicken in a little evoo and the onion. The sauce was spectacular. There really isn't much you could/should change in this recipe to make it better. Definitely on the 'keeper' list.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Really yummy! SO much better than bottled dressing. We may never go back. It was so fresh and tasty...I'm looking forward to my leftovers for lunch today! The only changes I made was using light mayo and anchovy paste. And to save time i just used store bought croutons, though i'd like to try that part of this recipe too! I served it with grilled steak on top. Yum!
