Chicken French - Rochester, NY Style
Excellant! Easy! Will make again, and again, and again. I followed this recipe as written, except had regular chicken base on hand. Will have to get the low-sodium chicken base, even though the taste didn't suffer. I usually alter recipes, but not this one!

Fast and Friendly Meatballs
Tasty Meatballs. I doubled the recipe and added a bunch of other stuff, like most people who's reviews I read before selecting this recipe. I used Empire Kosher Ground White Turkey as it's very tasty on it's own. I added two large eggs, cumin, fresh garlic, red onion, salt & fresh ground pepper blend, fresh Italian Parsley, dried Basil, finely chopped fresh carrot, dash of Turmeric, Ian's Panko Whole Wheat Breadcrumbs + Wegman's Italian Classics Seasoned Bread Crumbs, Go Veggy! Grated Parmesan topping & a splash of Cooking Sherry. Of course, you can use real Parmesan cheese, but I needed to keep it dairy-free. Formed and cooked meatballs as specified, then plunked them in pasta sauce to simmer while I made the spaghetti and a salad. Seconds were had!

Old-Fashioned Lemonade
I had a sudden craving for lemonade after a friend asked to borrow a lemon for a recipe she was making. I had been cleaning the garage on a hot day. I didn't want to wait hours for my drink and only had two Meyer lemons, which meant I had to cut the recipe by a third. So this is how I made two glasses of lemonade in about 5 minutes. (One for my husband laboring in the veggie garden.) I used an electric juicer and juiced 2 Meyer lemons. I combined the lemon juice with a bit less than two ounces Sun Crystals All Natural Sweetener in a microwave safe measuring cup and nuked it for 30 seconds. This made a nice syrup and dissolved the sweetener. (I only had the Sun Crystals and Organic Pure Cane Sugar on hand, but no white sugar, so gave it a try.) Next, I combined ice cubes and water to make 2 cups cold water in a container. Then poured in the lemon syrup. Shook it up, and wallah! I had two cold glasses of lemonade. It was perfect! Of course, if you want the amount in the recipe, use the quantities suggested.
