Apple Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
I love muffins in general, but am always looking for ways to make healthy ones that are still tasty. These are now top of my list! I used coconut oil instead of vegetable, added baking powder as another reviewer suggested, and also added some vanilla. They were awesome! And my toddler loves them as well. :)

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2013
I used mixed veggies instead of just carrots, didn't have celery so added some celery salt. Also added some dry mustard and pickle juice for those extra flavors that I like in my cheeseburger. :) This was great! Perfect on a chilly fall evening.

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
SO. GOOD. My husband and I have a greek restaurant nearby where we love to get gyros, and we also discovered we really like their lentil soup. However, since we don't have a huge budget for endlessly eating out, this recipe solves that problem. It tastes just like the one we love from the restaurant, and it is so easy to make!! We also took Stacy's pita chips, broke them into little pieces, and sprinkled on top, kind of like greek croutons. Yummy. I'm thinking I'll make another batch with my leftover cilantro and freeze it.

Cajun Macaroni

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
I made this exactly as written, and used my own homemade cajun seasoning. My husband and I both loved it and it will give us each a full serving for work lunch leftovers too.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I've tried this recipe multiple times, and I don't know why, but no matter how much I want it to taste amazing, the flavor always manages to come out a little "blah". The most recent try, I followed other reviewers' advice and doubled the sauce, adding it with the chicken broth at the end. I added some chili paste, some brown sugar, and even a dash of worcestershire. I also included minced garlic and cooked it all in sesame oil. Then topped with some peanuts, which was nice. But there was still no real 'pop' of flavor like I hoped for. Does it have anything to do with the fact that all of the chicken coating comes off and adheres itself to the bottom of my wok when cooking? I have to scrape it off or else it burns, so maybe that's my problem... If trying it again, I would add some salt, or more soy sauce, and go really heavy on the stronger seasonings, and add some red pepper flakes. Just not sure whether there will be another try, though.

Anna's Amazing Easy Pleasy Meatballs over Buttered Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Not able to find condensed french onion soup at my grocery store, and discovering at home that I didn't have a dry mix on hand like I thought, I used a substitute mix that I put together - beef bouillon, onion flakes, onion powder, celery salt, lawry's seasoned salt, curry, sugar, parsley, and pepper. I combined this with the one can of cream of celery soup, plus one soup can full of water, and cooked the meatballs in it on high all afternoon, then added the sour cream before serving. I also had to add a bit of corn starch to thicken it up. Oh, and I sauteed some mushrooms/onions/garlic and threw those in, which pretty much made it amazing. Actually I loved the flavor of the sauce with the buttered noodles, and would substitute the sauteed veggies for the meatballs altogether next time. But my husband loves meatballs, so I'll keep making it with those for him - he gave this a definite 5 stars, by the way.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
This was great, and just as great leftover. It makes a very large amount. We took this to our friends who just had a baby, and there were lots of leftovers, even after seconds. But since it's usually just my husband and I, next time I'm going to freeze half of the batch to have on hand for one of those nights when I don't feel like cooking. I used mild italian sausage, which was perfect, and added a little green pepper. Liked the sour cream...never would have guessed it wasn't ricotta.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
My husband isn't usually a fan of cauliflower, and I don't have much experience trying to cook it in ways that aren't boring. But we both thought this was good!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
This didn't have as much flavor as I'd hoped, so my husband and I had to grab some dipping sauces from the fridge (light ranch for me, hot sauce for him). But the chicken itself was very moist, which is definitely a plus.

Browned Butter Vegetables with Almonds

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
I've never been so excited about getting a second helping of vegetables. Absolutely loved these. Didn't have bell pepper on hand, but I'm sure it's just as good with it.

Chicken Papadoris

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
I did need to add more spices to this; increased them by about 50%. Skipped the cornstarch/cold water step at the end, because I wanted more sauce for dipping our naan bread in. Included some green onion I had in the fridge, just to use it up. Added some chili paste for more kick. And I used slivered almonds (toasted) instead of pine nuts, which was just as good as the first time I made it with pine nuts. This will remain a repeat recipe for sure!

Blueberry Turnovers

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
These are amazingly simple and yummy. My husband is a blueberry fanatic, and absolutely loves these little things. They're also perfect for overnight guests because of the minimal preparation and cook time involved. Will be coming back to this recipe again and again.

Dill Pickle Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
I've never met a meatloaf that I really cared for all that much...until now. I tried this recipe because my husband is a dill pickle nut, and we had a jar full of pickle juice in the fridge. Made this exactly to recipe (kinda unusual for me, to not even add garlic to something like this) and it was awesome. We had it with some dilled potatoes on the side and are SO looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. This is going on the repeat list for sure.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
This is great! My husband isn't a fan of broccoli, but he loved it in this dish. I also added lemon pepper/garlic powder/seasoning salt, and some onion flakes when cooking the chicken. Added sour cream and used cream of chicken soup because it's what I had. Doubled the bread crumb/butter mixture, and it was perfect.

Chicken with Peanut Curry Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
This was a yummy, easy meal. I added about a tablespoon of milk to the sauce, which helped. I also included a little ginger and some red pepper flakes to give it more kick. And it needed a good bit of salt and pepper, but after that, it was great. Oh, and I added some extra pine nuts I had sitting around, which I toasted in the pan before sauteing the vegetables. I would definitely make this again.

Cheeseburger Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
I decided while cooking this that I'd tweak a few things to both add flavor and make it more "cheeseburgery". First I added Lawry's seasoning salt to the meat while it was cooking because my mom always added it to her homemade hamburger patties when I was growing up. I threw in some minced garlic with the meat and veggies as well. Since I didn't have celery (and don't eat it on my cheeseburgers anyway), I just added some celery salt for the flavor, as well as chili powder. Used cream o' chicken soup and frozen veggies since it's what I had. Went lighter on the velveeta and milk (about half), but added some shredded mild cheddar (which I also put on top w/ the sour cream/chives for garnish). And since my idea of a really good cheeseburger includes dill pickles, I added 4 teaspoons of PICKLE JUICE for an extra tang. I personally think this was the perfect touch. So yummy - thanks Charlotte for the great idea for a recipe!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
I generally followed the reviews from HOLLY9000 and PRINCESS20NY, and was pleased with the result. Didn't have cream of mushroom soup, so used cream of chicken instead. Added a can of mushroom pieces, some sour cream and extra wine to the sauce. My husband really liked it!
