Fast and Simple Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
Fast and simple is an under statement here. This salsa is awesome. It is the wrong time of the year in St. Louis for home grown tomatoes so I used a can of no salt diced tomatoes and a can of RoTel tomatoes with green chile peppers. Also threw is a few chopped jalapeno peppers. I was worried about the vinegar but not any more. Boy is this spicy. Goes great on top of my black bean veggie burgers, chicken and fish.

Herbed Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
Made this as directed tonight and all everyone said was bland, bland and bland. You could see the spices but you sure couldn't taste them. Paired this with the "ritzy chicken" from this site. I'm glad I made extra sauce for the chicken to put on these noodles.

Ritzy Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I made this tonight using 3 chicken breasts. We like "saucy" recipes because baked chicken can be a little dry, so I used the entire can of FF evaporated milk and increased the parmesan cheese. This tasted like a chicken cutlet with incredible gravy. This recipe uses a few pots, pans and bowls but definitely worth it. Paired this recipe with the herbed noodles (from this site). I'm so glad I made the extra sauce to put over the bland noodles. This will be made again and again in our house!

Traci's Adobo Seasoning

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I made this exactly as written. We mixed this in with some ground beef and grilled as hamburgers. All this tasted like was taco meat. I'm going to use the rest of this the next time we make tacos.

Kitchen Sink Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
This salad dressing is amazing. It tastes like a cross between 1000 island and french. I am very skeptical when a recipe calls for canned tomato soup because it always has a can taste. Made this yesterday as written except used just under 1/2 cup light "real" mayo. There is no fooling, this makes a lot of great dressing. Not too tangy and not too sweet!

Hash Brown Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
I only had enough hash browns to make 2 servings. The only difference with this recipe is that I added minced garlic to the ground beef and topped with 2 slices of American cheese. The cheese got really brown, so next time, I'll add it near the end of baking. This was rather bland but the hash brown crust was awesome. Next time, we will try hot sausage, velveeta cheese and more spices. My hubby smothered his with sriracha (rooster sauce).

Potato Crust Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
I made this just like a regular pizza, pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni. You definitely had to eat this one with a fork. This took a long time to bake with no big bang here.

Essanaye's Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
I cut this down to make enough sauce for 2 pizzas. I actually made this a few days ago and had it sitting in the fridge to meld the flavors. Paired this great sauce with the quick and easy pizza crust and the potato crust pizza both from this site. I'm going to be making a large batch of this and canning it.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
Made with whole wheat flour instead of bread flour. This was thick and spongy. Kinda reminded us of eating a piece of wheat bread with pizza toppings.

!Ole! Party Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
This is not the prettiest salsa I ever made. It is extremely easy and very tasty. We like it "hot" in our house so I added sliced jalapeno peppers to the hot salsa. This would be good in taco salad too.

Hot Mustard Pretzel Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
This is okay and was easy to prepare. It is definitely on the sweet side. It gets very thick as it cools. Not sure we will make this one again.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
I cut this recipe down to 2 servings and made 1 quesadilla in my Santa Fe quesadilla maker. I used zero oil and zero butter. Used sliced green onion because we prefer them over yellow onions any day, 1/4 cup each black beans and corn, 1/2 tsp brown sugar (not really into sweet foods), 1T salsa, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes and 1/8 cup of cheese. Topped with sour cream and more salsa. Didn't even miss the meat. These would be great with some grilled chicken tossed in too.

Sunflower Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
We would rate this a 10 if we could. Served this along side our grilled steaks last night. Used light "real" mayo and 3T sugar. Didn't have any raisins but substituted craisins. The salad was gone before we could even take a picture. This will be my go to side dish!

Asian Chicken with Peanuts

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
This is one easy and quick after work dinner that the whole family enjoyed. I used the grilled & ready chicken breast strips (no need to cook in oil). Used reduced sodium soy sauce. My daughter ate the red pepper so I threw in some sliced carrots. Any veggies will do. It was lacking a little in flavor until I shook in some powdered chicken bouillon granules. Topped with nuts and green onion. My hubby doesn't like nuts in his food and my daughter likes extra in hers (no problem). Served over brown rice. You can even buy the veggies already pre-cut to cut prep time. A keeper for sure!

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
These were good and very easy to make. I used the "dry ranch mix" from this site, a dried dill mix from the Pampered Chef and Mrs. Dash lemon pepper seasoning. Will be making this again for sure. Not too over powering!

Dry Ranch Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
First, I cut this down to 4 servings. I made this to use in the "ranch oyster crackers" from this site. I omitted the saltine crackers, used 1/4 tsp garlic salt and 1/8 tsp onion salt (watching our salt intake). I had a dill mix from the pampered chef. This made a nice and mild flavor to the oyster crackers (wasn't over powering in our soup). I will make this into salad dressing next.

Open Face Mozzarella Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
I just love tomato and cheese sandwiches. Didn't have a whole tomato so I cut up a handful of salad/grape tomatoes to cover a piece of whole wheat bread. Used shredded mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, 1/4 tsp each of EVOO and balsamic vinegar. This is so light and heavenly. These would also be great with a slice of provel cheese. I will be making these again and again for sure!

Beef and Cheddar Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
As written this gets a 1 or 2. Brown the ground beef with onion. Add taco seasoning mix 1 from this site (1/4 cup), then add the salsa and soup mixture. Top the taco with sour cream, tomatoes, cheese and taco sauce. Now you have a winner.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Made this with fat free Greek plain yogurt, dijon mustrd, honey and lemon juice. This was a bit on the tangy/bitter side. I can't wait to try it with light "real" mayo. This is going to be an everyday dressing/sandwich spread/chicken nugget dipping sauce in our home.
