False Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
I made this today, and loved it. I'm counting points and this is a great low-fat recipe. I used 93% lean, added italian seasoning, used a 15 oz can of tomato sauce, one can of soup and substituted the sour cream for non-fat yogurt. Again, this turned out great, but it does take at least an hour to soften the cabbage. Served over rice.

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2003
The flavor of the bisque is outstanding. I served it on Thankgiving as the appetizer with yam muffins. I think I could stopped serving there! My mistake was over thinning it with broth which I will correct the next 1000 times I make it. Thin slowly to your preference. I learned, but it was still great. Thanks.

Favorite Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
Mine came out very soupy. I'm not sure how I could goof up a green bean casserole, but I did. I'll try it again, someday, when the pain wears off.

Blooming Onion and Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
This is awesome. So much fun to serve. The sauce is perfect. It's definitely not an appetizer because once you start eating them, you can't stop! Then, there's no room left for a meal! Great for football season. Go Pats! I bought this little device from one of those magazines of wierd home things that come in the mail. I think that's the reason mine come out so well. It's idiot proof. It has slots that tell you where to slice, a corer, and it stops the knife before you get to the bottom of the onion. If you like the bloom, look into it. Thanks for sharing.

Onions in Raisin Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
I served this today to a crowd of 12 tough critics. I liked it because I didn't want a "creamed" onion recipe, and I needed a sugar-free side dish. This was perfect. No leftovers. I used small boiling onions and steamed them to tender. I sauteed them the night before, and added all the remaining ingredients. I put it all into a container to marinade overnight (for convenience). The next day, I put them in a pan over high heat and it thickened beautifully. I was very pleased with the result. I will definitely make this again and again. Thanks!

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
This was the best turkey I've ever served, and I've served many. Believe me, getting under the skin of a turkey at 8:00 a.m. on a holiday morning after his bath was not my idea of fun, but I did it - for the first time. I couldn't believe how tough the skin is as I stretched it "out of my way" with a handful of herbs, spices and butter, but it never tore. I always thought the sides were this meal's crowning glory and turkey was just, well, turkey, but this turkey turned out way too well to throw into a soup. It was the most flavorful, juciest Tom I ever served, and I will never do it differently again. Many thanks.

Yummy Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
I served this today to 12. It's tough to make a sweet potato casserole that doesn't "have legs", but I really like this one, and it went fast. It's a perfect combination of spices, easy to prepare, and you can easily cut the sugar and butter by a third and still have great results. I was very pleased with my guests' reaction. Thanks LL.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2003
I made this last night for today's Thanksgiving feast. I have always made my own cranberry sauce, usually with walnuts, red wine, etc. I really liked this as did my 12 guests. I doubled the recipe and made a tubful! I bought dried apricots, mangos, and pineapples in the bulk section of the product dept. Dicing them small enough took some time. The spices were perfect. The color was fine. I simmered it for at least 3 hours, stirring often. I froze the leftovers. I'm sure they'll come in handy in the weeks to come! Yes, I will make this again. Thanks for sharing Leeza.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2003
This does make lot, which I like a lot! It freezes well and it's great to have on hand in the freezer. I've made this a few times. Yesterday, I followed the recipe exactly, give or take veggie amounts. I had been using more chicken broth and less tomato sauce. I find that using tomato sauce with the chicken broth in these amounts makes this soup more filling and satisfying as a complete meal. Also, I see no need to saute veggies, or add olive oil (or salt) to this recipe. I've done it both ways and there was no difference in taste. I love this soup, and the parmesean really seals it as a five star. Thanks Jamie.

All Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2003
5 stars would have been difficult to give had I not read all the reviews suggesting to cut the sugar down to two cups, but I was very happy with the end result. A great way to use the abundance of apples Fall brings. I crocked it for 24 hours, then put the handmixer in the crockpot to "cream" it. Not a lot of work. I yielded 4 1-cup (margerine) containers which is in my freezer waiting to be used on the Apple Butter Pork Loin (this site) for a holiday gathering. Nice to have on hand. I wish I had doubled the recipe!

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2003
I thought this was okay, but even baked for an hour and a half, the potatoes were still hard. This meals is a homemade version of hamburger helper, only Helper is much quicker. If you do try it, the baby carrots suggested by one reviewer is a good one.

Tuna Noodle Casserole IV

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
This came out great and it's a recipe that lets you fine-tune to your liking. I used two cans of tuna, 1/2 cup diced onion, and peas. I had the "casserole" sized elbos and they were great. I used the cheddar and croutons and no extra seasonings. To classy this up, I would use fresh mushrooms and lose the peas. I don't do tuna casseroles often, but when I do, this is the one.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2003
This is a great recipe. As usual, I read the reviews (thanks) and took a few suggestions. I used 8 boneless breasts (always my preference), verly lightly floured them (less than 1/2 cup of flour), and I used a touch of olive oil for browning. I doubled the peppers and onions, but cut them into 1-inch pieces. I used a cup of red wine, twice the garlic, and a small can of tomato sauce at the end when I thought it was a little too liquidy. I love this. It's lowfat, very tasty and even easier to make. Thanks!

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
This was great. I had a 14-pounder in my freezer and it was time to cook it. After deboning, it yielded 10 cups of juicy turkey. I tripled this recipe (for freezing) and used 3+ cups of turkey in each. Oherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. It was perfect. The only thing I would try for a change is to add a packet of turkey gravy and an additional cup of water to the pie filling (per pie). I like the taste of turkey gravy and I like it to taste like turkey, not chicken. If you're going to make turkey pot pie, this is the one to try. Thanks.

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
I used 4 london broil steaks (about 2.5 lbs)and trimmed them well before layering them at the bottom of the crock. I quartered 4 unpeeled russet potatoes to top the meat. Added a can of musrooms, 1/2 cup of red wine and used cream of celery because that's what I had. Mixed the 3 soups together before pouring on top. I cooked for 8 hours on low. The meat turned out perfect, the potatoes were still a little hard. Plenty of great gravy and the flavor was very good. I'm sure I will choose low-sodium soups in the future, not so much for the taste difference, but let's face it: that's a lot of salt! If easy, comfort food is your goal, and you can spare 5-10 minutes in the morning (or the night before), this is a great recipe. There is plenty of gravy to add veggies too, if you like. I will make this again. Thanks.

French Stuffing

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
The seasonings are perfect for this recipe and that's the trick. I prefer to add mashed potatoes to the mixture for use as a stuffing so when I finished the saute, I used a potato masher to further crumble the meat and that brought it to the right stuffing consistency. Thanks Loretta.

Tourtiere (Meat Pie)

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2003
An outstanding recipe that always goes over well. Lots of chopping (thank goodness for food processors), but the end result is always great. Use the leanest meat you can find! Thanks!

Brian's Favorite Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2003
Brian, you done good. I read all the reviews for this recipe and made it yesterday in a crockpot. As with any recipe, we modify it to suit our own tastes. The result: the best I've ever made. I didn't want the fat from the meat so I made a meatless sauce. Taking others' suggestions, I doubled all the seasonings. I added 1/2+ cup of red wine, a can of tomato paste and I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes and 4 cans of tomato sauce vs. the opposite. It's the best consistency and flavor ever! Thanks. It's a keeper.

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2003
Very good response from family. One can of pineapples yields the cup of juice you need, and the pineapples on the skewer are just the right combo. I added garlic and ground ginger as others' suggested, and marinated the chicken for 24 hours. They came out great! Thanks!
