Spicy Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
I made the recipe as is (using fat free sour cream, skim milk with lemon juice for the buttermilk), creamy horseradish sauce, tabasco sauce and lots of pepper. This would rate a 2-3 since it was definitely missing spices. I added garlic powder, onion powder, Mrs. Dash original, a dried dill mix, chilli powder and crushed rep pepper flakes. This made a decent veggie dip and was also good in my chicken salad sandwich. It wasn't runny at all. You just need to play around with this one to adjust to your own liking.

BBQ Feta and Hot Banana Pepper Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I had a 2 pound package of ground turkey from Costco so I doubled the recipe. Took the advise from others and added chopped onion, garlic and dried basil. I added zero salt. Let this sit in the fridge overnight and cooked for lunch. My "I'll never eat diet food" hubby ate 2 and was eye balling a third one. Can't wait to take in my lunch tomorrow.

Spicy Southwestern Cheese Tortellini

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
I made a whole package of frozen tortellini. Made the "tomato and basil pasta sauce" from this site. This had an awesome flavor. If I don't have to buy canned, I will not. This was easy and will be made over and over in our house.

Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
Word of advise. Do NOT use minced onions, they take hours and hours to soften. Otherwise, made as directed, awesome sauce. I put ours in the food processor because my daughter doesn't like chunky tomatoes. Can't wait to can it.

Brown Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This recipe rocks. I used instant brown rice, beef broth, butter, worcestershire sauce, 1tsp dried basil. Didn't have a can of french onion soup so I added 1 cup of water and made the "dry onion soup mix" from this site. Cooked in the microwave stirring every 5 minutes until it was done about 15-20 minutes later. Paired this with the "beer lime grilled chicken" from this site. This is going to be made again and again for sure.

Beer Lime Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This was an excellent marinade for our grilled chicken last night. It was nice, light and refreshing. Didn't waste a good can of Bud-Light on this one. Paired this with the "brown rice" from this site. Our entire family enjoyed this meal.

Ham 'N' Broccoli Hash

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
As written this would be a bit bland. I added in some minced onions, pepper and garlic powder. We omitted the salt. Topped with shredded cheddar cheese and sriracha (hot rooster sauce). This is a great recipe because you can add anything you want.

Dry Onion Soup Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This recipe and the onion soup mix recipe (also from this site) are great substitutions for the store bought pre-packaged high sodium ones. When possible, I will make my own seasoning mixes. I am always looking for reduced sodium recipes that also have flavor for my family.

Meal-in-One Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
We used shredded hash browns in place of the sliced potatoes and this was very bland. Then changes made to our taste were adding a can Rotel tomaotes, ground red pepper, some dried basil, a few squirts of worcestershire sauce and 8 ozs Velveeta cheese. Now it's a 5 star.

M.D.K's Famous Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
I only put a little salad in a bowl just to try this dressing that I made 4 days ago. I'm sure glad I did because this dressing is just awful. I only used 1/4 cup sugar and it still is very sweet. It is so runny that it won't stay on the lettuce and it just puddles in the middle of the bowl. I thought what an easy, fat free dressing, but definitely not for us.

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.
