Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2003
I have now been making this soup for six years and still love it. I have played with it a little, but it great just as written. The changes I usually make are to increase the beans to 3 cans. I blend about 1 1/2 cans and leave the other 1 1/2 cans whole. If I have time I will saute some garlic and onion, but most of the time I am making this soup I am in a hurry for a quick and healthy meal, so I don't bother. There have been a few reviewers who comment on the high sodium of this recipe. I buy organic black beans and they are very low in sodium. You can use dried beans to cut it back even further. I use low sodium broth from Trader Joes. You can also look for low sodium salsa. I love this recipe. It is quick to put together, tasty and more importantly healthy if you cut down on the sodium.

Homemade Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
Your basic chicken soup recipe found in most general cook books. It is the old reliable of chicken soup recipes. I appreciated the hint to cut the carrots, celery and onions in half. I had always cut them up in small pieces, and then when I would drain the broth, it was messy to try to retrieve the cut up veggies to put them back in the broth. This is so much easier! When I drain the broth, I place a paper towel in the sieve. It makes for a nice clear broth. I also cook up some noodles to add to the soup. I do not like to add the noodles directly to the pot of soup, because the noodles will aborb too much of the broth.

Vegan Split Pea Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2003
Although this is not as flavorful as pea soup made with a ham bone, it is a tasty recipe. Since so many reviewers recommended adding more water, I used 12 cups of water and doubled the spices. This worked out well. However, next time I will not add the barley. That is what thickens this soup. If you make it without the barley, it will not be so thick. If you do find it needs to be thickened when it is done, you can always add some instant mashed potatoes flakes. That will thicken it up nicely.

Shrimp Delight

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
Excellent!!! Big hit at my party. I used less cheddar cheese, and think that next time I might eliminate it altogether. I used thawed, frozen salad shrimp. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Shrimp Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
This was a big hit!! As others suggested, I spread the cream cheese on the bottom of a nine inch pie pan. I used thawed, frozen salad shrimp. (I am not fond of canned fish or meats.) It was gone in minutes!!! Thanks for sharing.

Strawberry, Kiwi, and Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
A great ladies salad!!! I used bottled raspberry dressing instead of making the one in the recipe. I received many compliments on this salad. It is a nice combination of ingredients.

Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
These were very good. However, I suggest you use between 2-2 1/2 cups apples to get them to really taste like apple muffins. I would also double the cinnamon. I did use a mixture of cinnamon and brown sugar to sprinkle on top as someone else suggested. They turned out great!!

Tortilla Rollups II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
These went over well at a lunch buffet. I increased everything by 1/2 except the onion. I also added a half cup of sour cream. Next time I would add even more salsa for flavor and color. It was a bit bland for my tastes. Next time I will add more salsa and maybe some Mexican spices. Increasing by half, let me have enough filling for the 10 tortillas. I know several people said they ran out of filling.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2002
I think these would be better with almond flavoring. We thought they were VERY bland for our tastes. I guess my family just prefers the egg white type macaroons. I used a small scoop and got 4 dozen. I also put a half of a candied cherry on top of each cookie. They look festive that way. They look pretty on a platter of Christmas cookies. Too bad they taste so blah! Frankly, I just can't imagine how they win prizes at state fairs. Everyone who tried them, just said they were "Okay," but not great. I will not make these again, that is for sure!

Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2002
I have made these for years and they are always a big hit! These can be prepared days ahead and frozen. On the day of your party, just pull them out of the freezer and bake. I freeze them in the aluminum foil type pans, so they are ready to go right in the oven.

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2002
My family enjoyed this recipe a lot. Instead of sprinkling the chops with salt and pepper, I used Morton's Seasoning Salt, which is a nice blend of seasonings. I did mix cinnamon with the sugar and made a little more than what is called for. Next time I would not use the onions. My family did not think the onions blended well with the sweet potatoes and apples. I also did not season the casserole with the 2 tsp. of pepper and the 1 tsp of salt. Somehow I didn't think that would go well with the sugared potatoes and apple slices. I would suggest that if you make this recipe, you microwave the sliced sweet potatoes for a couple minutes to give them a head start in cooking. I found the potatoes were a little hard and the meat a little overdone, following the recipe. I think if you started the potatoes, you could cook this recipe for about 45 minutes and get juicier chops.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2002
Great Recipe! I did not add the water, since I never add water to fruit crisp recipes. I mixed Granny Smith apples with Jonathan apples and the result was a delicious dessert. For those bakers who said the recipe was too sweet, I am guessing that they used eating apples and not baking apples. Rather than sprinkle the sugar, cinnaman and flour on the apples, I mixed the ingredients together and then stirred in the apples.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2002
These potatoes were great and brought rave reviews from the guests I served them too. Next time I make them, I will first roll the potatoes in the olive oil and then sprinkle the spices on. These are quick to prepare and very tasty. They eliminate the need for making a high calorie gravy. This is a definite keeper.

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2002
This recipe was outstanding!! The chicken was so flavorful. My whole family enjoyed the tasty meal. I used a six pound chicken, so I doubled the spices. I put an onion and celery leaves in the cavity before roasting. I cooked it at 350 degrees for about 2 hours. It was wonderful!! Quick to prepare and very delicious!!

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: May 2, 2002
Very tasty, easy to make recipe. I did not use water and I only used an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce. I think it would be like soup if you used the ingredients as called for. I also used diced green chilies instead of green pepper, and enchilada sauce instead of taco sauce. My family loves this recipe. We make it about twice a month.

Elbows and Ground Beef

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2002
This is a very quick and delicious recipe to throw together when time is tight. I did saute 3 large garlic cloves along with the onion. I also added fresh ground pepper to the recipe. Since I was out of green pepper, I used red pepper and celery in its place. It turned out great. I also used less tomato sauce. Some family members sprinkled it with parmesan or cheddar cheese. This recipe was a hit with my family. It is not gourmet, but a nice basic dish.

Yeast Raised Christmas Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2002
This was my first attempt at waffles from scratch. They were by far the best we have had. Next time I would add a bit more sugar for my tastes, but otherwise they were wonderful: very light and fluffy!

Easy Ground Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2001
This is a tasty, quick meal. I made a few changes. I used NO salt at all and reduced the boullion cubes to four. Like someone else, I added a little sour cream before serving. This recipe was well received by my family.
