Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
We enjoyed this dish, but we'll try cilantro in place of parsley next time. This was my first experience cooking with quinoa...and had to buy a double mesh strainer to accommodate those tiny little grains!

Garlic Bread Spread

Reviewed: May 11, 2014
Easy to make and tasty...I won't bake it as long next time as it seemed to dry the bread out too much.

Italian Bread II

Reviewed: May 10, 2014
The flavor and texture is very good and easy to make too! But, my dough came out sticky and had to carefully work at getting it into one loaf (that was all I could do with it). Next time I will use a 3:1 flour to water ratio as another commenter suggested.

Easy Chicken Taquitos

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
Very easy to make. I cooked my own chicken though. They were a bit on the bland side. I will add some spices next time to kick it up a notch...but a great base recipe! Thank you~ 5/29/14 Update: After boning out a leftover roasted chicken, I had approx 4 cups chopped chicken. I added about 1/3 cup sour cream, 1 Tbls taco seasoning and increased the hot sauce and cheese accordingly. These were THE best! I froze the leftover taquitos for another meal.

Southern Biscuits with Mayonnaise

Reviewed: May 3, 2014
Used butter instead of oil. Tried not to handle the dough too much, but the still came out a bit hard. I'll try patting them out then doubling them over before cutting next time. Quick and easy recipe.

Turkey Carcass Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
We had a turkey breast and made half of the soup recipe with it and it turned out excellent. I didn't get a lot of turkey flavor from just one hour of simmering, so I added one Knorr concentrated chicken soup stock, and that did the trick to bring up the flavor. Next time I would simmer the carcass longer. But, the husband loved it. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
Yes, it's sort of a strange combination of mixes, but it works wonderfully!! I added quartered, peeled potatoes around the sides of the roast. Love the simplicity of the recipe for busy days. Thank you!

Extreme Veggie Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
I often forget how well veggies go with scrambled eggs. Versatile with whatever you have on hand! Roll it up in a warm tortilla or with an English muffin...easy breakfast!

Old-Fashioned Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
As with most recipes on this site, it takes quite a bit longer to make...3 hours to be exact. But it was delicious, and the husband said it was a keeper. I used a whole chicken that had been smoked with apple pellets which gave it an interesting smoked flavor. This was my first attempt at making noodles, so I didn't know what to expect. I rolled them out on my pastry board and cut into strips with a pizza cutter...simple, but they were a bit sticky, and I had used at least 3 1/2 cups flour. I sprinkled flour over the noodles as I scrapped the strips off of the board and let them dry while I de-boned the chicken. The noodles probably could have been rolled out thinner, but it worked OK. The consistency was more like soup; I will thicken the left overs with cornstarch/water mixture. Will definitely make this again, but allow more time!

Browned Butter Vegetables with Almonds

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
This was easy and delicious...and any combination of your fav veggies will work! I used what I had on hand: celery, cabbage, onion, yellow and green peppers...and I probably used half of the butter the recipe calls for. Will definitely do this again!

Oven Baked Chicken Teriyaki

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
Don't do what I did which was to use regular strength soy sauce! Low-sodium is a MUST! Despite my screw up, the flavor was delicious. I substituted rice wine vinegar with 1/2 tesp sugar for the mirin wine and had to use ground ginger instead of fresh. I will do this again with all the correct ingredients next time...it was an easy recipe.

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
Excellent!! Easy to follow recipe and we really enjoyed it with some home made soup. It came out of the pan nicely without falling apart...very moist. I want to try baking it in a cast iron skillet next time.

Snert (Split Pea Soup)

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
This soup had a very pleasant flavor...even though I didn't have all the right ingredients. I had a VERY meaty ham bone in place of the ham hock, no bacon, no leek and no sausage. But I followed the recipe with everything else. The peas were soaked overnight prior to putting them into the slow cooker. The ham bone was cooked for the first 6 hours after which time I took it out and let it cool to remove the meat...adding the meat back into the cooker. At the very end, I used my immersible blender and gave it a few swirls to thicken the soup up a bit. I never had to add any additional liquid. Served with home made corn bread, and it made a delicious winter meal. I hope to have sausage on hand next time! Thanks for sharing!

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
So simple and very tasty...made as directed, but used bottled lime and lemon juice because that's what I had on hand. Will make it again.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
Excellent and cost effective! Made changes the same as Cindy18Lou. Used 1/3 for a large pizza and froze the remaining 2/3 in equal divided containers. Perfect!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
I made just half recipe for the two of us; froze the half cans of tomato and chilies for another batch! It was very easy to make, but takes longer than an hour to put it on the table. Seems to be a good idea to make a full batch and freeze half for another meal.

Idahoan Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2014
I give it 5 for flavor, but it sure didn't stand up like the photo...mine was VERY soft and smooshy. Maybe needs some cornstarch in the mix. Will play with it.

Great flavor, not too spicy. Saute'd peppers and onions, added 3/4 c water and the seasioning as written. Cooked for 5 minutes covered. Then added thinly sliced left over bbq'd steak and cooked until steak was warmed. Served in warmed flour tortillas and rice on the side.

Green Cabbage Caldo Verde

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
Even though I didn't have quite the right ingredients, it came out very tasty! Used regular paprika, smoked Polish sausage (slightly browned in a cast iron skillet), and added carrots with the potatoes. I used about 3 tsp salt. My submersible blender work wonderfully to puree the soup. I'll definitely make this again!

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
For our personal taste, 1/2 pound of sausage would have been enough. I cooked about 1/4 cup chopped onion with the sausage. Go light on the salt! Increase the egg by one and use one more slice of bread. Cooked in a 7" x 12" pan.
