Hearty Vegetable "Diet" Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Without the cabbage this soup becomes a delicious hearty no guilt tomato based soup. I've never like cabbage, so made this soup today (when I was feeling a bit chubby) without it. Was so good. I also used crushed tomatoes in place of the V8, which really helped to thicken up this soup. A winning recipe.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I'll never buy a little packet of taco seasoning again! This was great and I can't believe how much better it is for you than the sodium packed stuff from the store.

Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly and yes, it was the most moist and crispy fried chicken I've ever had, but it was also the most bland. I should have paidattention to the other reviewers and added some more spices. I'll make this again, but will def kick the spices up a few notches the next time!

Marinated Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly, even added a bit of minced garlic, marinated for 8 hours and while my family all liked it, I thought it had an overpowering soy flavor. I'm going to try this again, but next time will only use half the soy. Other than that, vey moist, and I love a recipe that calls for things I already have on hand!

Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach with Garbanzo Beans)

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I absolutly love this recipe as is. I always use fresh spinach, usually when it's not looking so fresh anymore. Unbelievably good for such few ingredients and such little time and effort put into it. I usually make it as a side dish and then end up eating the leftovers alone for lunch the next day. So good.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
A great healthy hearty soup to serve for dinner. My very picky finance liked it and that's saying alot. Next time I think I'll put the carrots in the blender as Mr. Picky didn't like looking at them, but didn't mind their flavor. A keeper. ****Update**** I was craving this soup and decided I needed it agin for dinner, then realized I didn't have an onion and had only one carrot. I went ahead and made it anyway, omitting the onion and adding two turnips (all I had). After I suateede the catot and turnups, I put them in the blender (so Hubs wouldn't complain about the funny colors) with half the beans and the tomatoes. After I combined all ingredients and let simmer for awhile, soup still looked a little thinner than I wanted, so I added another small can of black beans. Result was wonderful! A thick chili like consistancy that helped me sneak some extra veggies in. A very forgiving recipe that I love even more now!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Was the best cornbread I've ever made, crumbly, buttery and delicious, although next time I will cut the sugar in half, because it was a little sweet for my taste.

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I made this last night for my family and following the advice of others, doubled it and cooked in my crockpot. I also used the taco seasoning I recipe from this site, and not knowing how much to use, started off with one Tablespoon of seasoning for 4 chicken breasts, but upon trying a few hours later, added the rest of the spice from the recipe. I then spooned the burrito filling into large flour soft tortilla, put a little taco cheese on top and placed on a hot griddle to crisp up the tortillas. Served with refried beans and a green salad. Fabulous! Two of my family members had to have some antacid in the night (they are prety wimpy - no one else complained that it was too spicy), but said it was worth it for these great burritos!

Mock Lobster

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This is my new favorite way to grill chicken. I first tried this "lobster" this summer and don't know if it was the marinade, the cooking on low on the grill or the combination of the two, but everyone in my family love, love, loved this chicken! Now ,I don't know if it actually had a lobster taste at all, but that's beside the point, this is a must try recipe!

Parmesan Knots

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Absolutely delicious. I followed some other reviewers advice and used butter instead of oil and fresh garlic instead of powdered, and they were just heavenly! I love the fact they're so small too, doesn't make me feel bad going for seconds or even thirds!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I absolutly love this recipe! Since I've discovered I've made it at least once a week because it is so quick easy and delicious. I took other reviewers advice and dust both sides of the tilapia with Old Bay seasoning and always use the butter / mayo combo and use whatever spices I'm feeling that night, garlic, onion, celery salt, basil, parsley - really whatever I grab first. I've also found that adding just a a teaspoon or so of breadcrubs helps the sauce stay on the fish better. Thanks for such a great and versatle recipe.

Broccoli and Garlic Penne Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
So quick and easy! I used whole wheat pasta to make tad healthier and added 2 diced chicken breasts for a little more protein, but besides that followed the recipe exactly. Even my finicky finace who is alway leery of trying new recipes liked it. His only complaint was that there wasn't enough garlic, so next time I might doulble or even triple the garlic! Thanks for a great simple weeknight meal.

Orange Juice Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I made this for myself for dinner last night and have to admit I didn't love it. I used red onions on top of the chicken and the combination of mustard, brown sugar and orange juice made them tast fabulous, but the chicken itself tasted like a bland chicken with orange juice on top. I used a rather thick chicken breast but now think maybe this recipe might be best with thin chicken cutlets. I don't know if I'll make this again.

Maple Plank-Grilled Italian Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
The stuffing and the pork were awesome, but I had a little trouble grilling on the plank. Never having grilled on a plank before, I bought a 1/4 inch piece of maple and soaked it for 6 hrs in water. Either my plank was way too thin, or didn't soak it long enough (maybe it was a combination) but after about 5 minutes the entire piece of wood was on fire! I prompty removed the pork chops from the fiery plank and put them on the top rack of the grill, where they only 15 more minutes to grill. they were slightly blackened, but still excellent. My family's only complaint was that the stuffing might have been a little too miost. Will definately try again, with a thicker plank, soaked longer and a little less chicken broth in the stufing. Would have been 5 stars if not for the fire!
