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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I, too, took the advice of the "most helpful" reviewers, and was very pleased with the result. I cooked the chicken/veggies in chicken broth, used two cups of frozen mixed veggies (peas, carrots, corn), and increased the liquid/gravy amount by about 50%. Didn't have celery seed, but used celery salt instead, and added some garlic powder. Pre-baked the bottom crust for 5 minutes, and had a wonderful dish that my pot-pie-loving husband raved about. My first pot-pie-making experience was a huge success.

Mexican Baked Fish

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
This was a great way to change things up from the normal dinner routine. I also had the issue of watery-ness in the bottom of my baking dish, so make sure you press out the water really well before cooking the fish. I served it with the "Best Black Beans" and "Mexican Rice II" recipes from this site. My husband and I both devoured it and he told me to put it on the "keeper" list. Thanks ChristyJ!

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. :)

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Best cornbread ever. I made a half recipe for my husband and I (made 6 muffins), but wish I would have made the full batch because there were no leftovers! I didn't have buttermilk, so used a tablespoon of vinegar, placed it in a 1/2 cup measure and filled the rest with milk (since I only did half the recipe). Worked great, and I'm most definitely making 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!

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.

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Absolutely fabulous. My husband and I are buffalo chicken fans, which is why I made it in the first place. I was actually expecting it to have a stronger buffalo flavor, making it very distinct from traditional chili. I'd say it still has a strong tomato flavor for anyone who's worried about how much difference there might be. But you could add more hot sauce if you wanted to as well. I also only had about 1/2 the amount of chili powder it called for, but I still thought the spicy "temperature" was just right. I cooked the chicken and veggies/spices, then mixed it with everything else in my large crock pot and had it on high for two hours while we were at church. (Probably would work better on low - I was going to turn it down before leaving, but forgot...just added a little water when I got home so it wasn't so thick. I'm definitely going to make this again.

Baked Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I used 2 Tbsp olive oil, plenty of minced garlic, 2 Tbsp Frank's hot sauce, and the called for amounts of everything else. Oh, and a tsp of onion powder. I marinated the wings in all of the above for 2 hours, then baked them on my tin-foil-covered cookie sheet for just under an hour. My buffalo-wing-loving husband said he definitely wants me to make them again. (His rating was 4 1/2 stars, because he'd never give anything a "perfect score"...but for him, this is as close as it gets. :) The skin had just the right crispness, but the meat was definitely not dried out. We had ranch, more Frank's hot sauce, and celery on the side.
