Chicken and Red Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Great way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken. We loved it. I used a 15 oz can of enchilada sauce (try an authentic brand, not old el paso)simmered with onion and a can of tomatoes. Then threw in some corn too as well as listed ingredients. I also quick-fried the tortillas for a few seconds in a skiller with a bit of oil, but not sure if this is worth the trouble. Gives them a very nice crispy chewy texture but may be lost after dousing in enchilada sauce! Either way we loved it and will be trying again soon.

Easy Vegetarian Red Beans Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Very good, I really enjoyed the simplicity of the recipe. Quick, non fussy, just a few ingredients. I baked it longer to develop a nice browness. I also used parmesan with cheddar, since this is a bechamel sauce any aged cheese works well so don't be afraid to experiment. My son was initially let down as there was no meat in the lasagna, but I told him it was a different type and the flavors were meant to be more subtle. By the end of the meal he seemed to be enjoying it more. Not sure if I would make it exactly like this again, but I do think it's a good idea.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
This is a good basic recipe, and my family enjoyed it a lot. Nice change from regular chili. I had to spice it up a lot to suit our tastes however. I used more seasonings, and added pureed chipotle with a little adobe sauce. Also, instead of the two cans of peppers I used a can of Herdez green salsa. And I added lime juice at the end.

Chop Suey

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I wish I could rate this more than 5, it was so delicious! However, I did make some modifications that others might want to try. Instead of plain hot water, I subbed a hot mix of stock with some white wine and a little water. I sauteed the onions along with the pork. After 5 minutes of this, I also added minced ginger and garlic and sauteed the pork for an additional minute before I added the hot stock mix. All this really deepened the flavors to unreal levels! Then, I had mushrooms, green beans, and carrots I added along with celery just to use them up and add color. Still, it was very quick easy to make and probably the most delicious Chinese dish I have ever made at home. Thanks for the great idea!

Yummylicious Japanese Beef Croquettes

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I didn't think of it as a recipe my family would enjoy, nor that I would make it again. However, when I told my family this over dinner, they balked. They thought it was terrific! I had used some leftover mashed potatoes. My husband had made some a few weeks before, getting creative and adding curry powder, and I thought they tasted weird but saved them in the freezer. Didn't work for American flavors but with this dish, I would recommend adding some to your potatoes! I also added garlic and ginger to the ground beef, extra soy, and left out the flour step. The panko was a delicious crust. Guess we'll be adding this to our rotation!

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Great recipe! Made a bunch, my family loved it and ate well, and I had leftovers for lunch for two days. Crushed chips and sour cream on top are a must. I added a pureed chipotle pepper in adobo sauce for smoky spiciness. I also happened to have a zucchini, so diced it up and added it towards the end. I wouldn't recommend adding the turkey until the very end, as mine was already cooked and didn't want to overcook it. But really this recipe is delicious as is and I wouldn't hesitate to make it again without my additions.

Kickin' Collard Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Pretty standard yet delicious treatment for collard greens. Collards are one thing that Joy of Cooking doesn't cover well, and this is the type of recipe that I prefer. They're even better with smoked ham bone or hocks, but I don't often have those around when I decide to make collards. Thanks!

Oriental Sesame Slaw

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Great! I served with a vietnemese nuoc mam, golden fried tofu and tomato stir fry, and steamed white rice. The flavors and varying textures worked so well and my family really liked it. Even with the mayo, it still tasted wonderfully Asian. Thanks for an easy recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
We had some leftover red pepper that my husband had grilled in the freezer so I added some of that, plus I sauteed the veggies in a bit of olive oil with the ham prior to adding the water (I used canned chicken broth). Otherwise the same. Pretty much one of the most delicious soups I've made! Versatile and easy. Thanks!

Cabbage Casserole Vegetable

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Cabbage in a cheesy sauce sounded good but it didn't work for our family. Maybe I didn't make it right, I sauteed the cabbage instead of boiling it. Someone else below had recommended this and as I had done this before for another recipe with good results, gave it a whirl. My son said it was too creamy for his tastes and my daughter, who eats anything, wouldn't touch this.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Delicious! Easy easy easy. Used herbes de provence since I was out of rosemary. Boil down the juices and wine well to make a light but incredibly flavored "sauce."

Quick Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
Don't steer away from this recipe because it uses convenience foods. I tell you what, I used to make "gourmet" tuna casserole from Joy of Cooking with homemade white cheese sauce. I thought it was special, but I think this was even BETTER. It also took a fraction of the time and was practically free. I also think this is probably lower in fat, since it doesn't use nearly as much milk. I love the Joy of Cooking but have found a new recipe for this one. Thanks!

Broccoli, Leek, and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
So ridiculously delicious! The bacon adds a nice touch. I used beef broth and russet potatoes and it worked great. Someone else suggested using buttermilk, which I happened to have a bit, so I mixed it with regular milk and the results were really fantastic.

Ham and Rice Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
My kids loved this, and so did I. They couldn't inhale it fast enough. It really was tasty! And took only minutes to whip up. We subbed mixed frozen veggies and cream of mushroom soup.

Curried Mustard Greens with Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
This is very good, easy, and versatile. Like others, I subbed coconut milk and added more spice. Used diced tomatoes instead of sauce. Over rice, it is a such a great quick meal that doesn't taste like you rushed it.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
I am re-rating this, as the first time I tried it I was really disappointed. All I could taste was sweet potatoes. Sometimes I like them, here I did not. However, I had made a freezer full of them. The next time I tried the author's suggestion of frying them up like chimichangas, and tried a tangier less tomatoey salsa. It made all the difference and this time my whole family loved it and requested seconds! On second thought, we will keep this recipe!
