Ohio Sausage and Kale Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
This is a keeper! Even my skeptical hubby liked it. I did change it up a bit to use up what I had on hand. I only had 2 spicy chicken sausage links, so I supplemented with some diced ham. I substituted rutabaga for potatoes because we're low-carbing. Besides the kale, I also added some shredded cabbage, diced carrots, and Italian seasoning. I threw everything in the slow-cooker for about 5 hrs (high). Delicious!

Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
Very tasty! This will be my go-to recipe for split pea soup from now on. I used 4 cups chicken broth and 2 cups water (with 1 chicken bullion cube). I did add milk (cold) about an hour before serving, which I think added to the creaminess of the soup. I didn't add any additional salt. I cooked it on low for about 10 hours. The consistency was perfect - mostly creamy but still had a little chewy pea bits.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
The best part about this soup is the ease of preparation, with everyday ingredients found in the fridge and pantry. The only alterations I made were to substitute 1/2 cup of salsa for the tomato sauce, couple of bay leaves, and red pepper flakes for some heat. I used a bottle of dark stout, which I thought added that extra richness and color to the soup. We enjoyed it very much!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
I’ve made this twice in the last couple of weeks. The first time, I pretty much followed the recipe as is (except for reducing the butter by half), and it was delicious. Tonight, I changed it up a bit, and before serving, added couple drizzles of sesame oil and topped it off with some roasted sesame seeds, tossed it all together, and it was delicious!

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
I couldn't pass up the 3 for $1 sale on cilantro, so this was the perfect recipe to use it up. I followed the recipe pretty much as written, except substituting lemon juice for wine vinegar, and adding a jalapeño pepper for that extra heat. It was delicious on top of grilled chicken breast.

Sweet Russian Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2011
Wow, what a great tasting soup! Really hearty and satisfying. As recommended by others, I reduced the sugar and increased the vinegar – used apple cider vinegar. Also added couple of bay leaves, Italian seasoning, and two small zucchinis that needed to be used. Will definitely make it again.

Linguine with Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
This is such an easy but elegant dish - - totally company worthy. I halved the butter and oil. I also added some sliced onions, red pepper strips, and much more garlic than called for (the more the better). Some white wine, bay seasoning, and juice of 1/2 lemon, also added more depth to the dish. Good stuff!

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
These meatballs are even better than those at my favorite Italian restaurant. No need to go out for my spaghetti and meatball dinner anymore, haha. I pretty much followed the recipe as written, except for substituting with dried flaked onions, and used fresh minced garlic. Loved the extra kick from the pepper flakes. It’s also extremely easy to prepare, which makes this recipe a real winner!

Korean Salad with Sesame Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
I doubled the recipe so I can use it as my go-to salad dressing for the next couple weeks. I also added some roasted sesame seed and diced garlic - - a great addition! My lunch tomorrow will be the dressing over soba noodles, sliced leftover chicken breast, shredded carrots, and diced green onions - - can’t wait to try.

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Oops, I mistakenly grabbed the bottle of Marsala wine instead of Sherry, so we ended up with “Marsala Apple Pork Chops” instead. It still turned out delicious. I added some chopped pecans over the apples before popping it into the oven. Very nice!

Passion Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
I made this yesterday afternoon and half the batch is eaten already! Needless to say, we’re enjoying the heck out of it. I followed the recipe exactly (which is a rarity for me), and it was so easy to assemble and came out perfectly with 30 min. baking time. As someone else here recommended, microwave the evaporated milk/peanut butter mixture for about 20 seconds to make it easier to spread onto the oatmeal crust.

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Due to time constraints, I had to improvise according to what I had on hand. I only had 2 russet potatoes, so I supplemented with a bag of Trader Joe’s cubed acorn squash, and it was delicious! I also simplified the assembly, by first sautéing cubed potatoes and squash for 4 minutes in a large deep skillet. I then added 1 cubed green pepper, 1 cubed red pepper, 1 chopped onion, and 4 minced garlic cloves, and sautéed everything for another 4 minutes. I then added 6 pre-cooked “chicken sausage with jalapeno” sliced diagonally, Italian seasoning, some pepper flakes, Lowrey’s Seasoned Salt, and white wine and chicken broth. I stirred all for another 2 minutes, then spooned all into a 9 X 13 baking dish. I baked it covered in aluminum foil for 30 minutes, then uncovered for 12 minutes. It came out perfectly cooked - - so yummy!

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
The dressing was a bit too sweet for my taste. Next time I'll cut the honey down to 1/4 cup. I didn't have fresh ginger root, so I used 1/2 tsp powdered ginger. Juice from 2 large limes did the job too. Overall, a nice, light dressing. Would make a good marinade too. Thank you Lin!

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This was soooo yummy! I used drumsticks and doubled the sauce ingredients, except for the butter. I wanted extra sauce to spoon over the brown rice I also made. Basting the last 30 minutes is definitely a must to get the meat nice and browned. This is a keeper!!

Blueberry Dump Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
This was a bit too sweet for me - tho eating with whip cream helped tone it down. Next time I'll use only 1/4 cup sugar to the berry mix. I used frozen blueberries and baked it for about 45 minutes. Very tasty, overall!

Savory Vegetable Beef Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Very flavorful stew. I used a slow cooker set on low for 10 hours. For more intense flavor, I made some adjustments - in addition to oregano, I added 1 tsp italian seasoning, 3 bay leaves, and extra garlic. Also added 1 beef bouillon cube, and 1 TBSP soy sauce. It was a big hit - everyone asked for seconds!

Korean Spicy Marinated Pork (Dae Ji Bool Gogi)

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
This is my husband’s favorite when we dine at a Korean restaurant. Overall, the recipe is close to what we’ve had, but a bit sweet for our taste, so I would cut down the sugar to 1.5 Tbsp. next time. We made two meals out of this; the first night we had the pork over rice, with Korean kimchi and stir-fried veggies on the side. The next day, we made tortilla wraps with the left-over pork, with dollop of sour cream, sliced avocado, and shredded lettuce – wow, it was da bomb! By the way, Kochuchang (Korean hot pepper paste) can be found in any Asian grocery store, usually in the same refrigerated section as miso (soybean paste) and such. Thank you funinthesun for a great recipe!

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This really is a nice and hearty side dish. It was a nice way to use up left over cabbage and carrots in my fridge. I didn’t have any onions left so I used couple of shallots and couple cloves of garlic instead. I only used 2 potatoes because that’s all I had. I doubled the cumin and didn’t use turmeric because I didn’t have any. I sprinkled a little bit of celery seed. Also cut the oil down to about 2 tbsp. Hubby and I both loved it!

Eggplant Parmesan I

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Wonderful recipe! I followed the recipe pretty much as written. The only changes made were: 1) sliced the eggplant thinner, more like ¼ inch slices 2) made sure to press the extra water out of the eggplant slices with paper towel after sweating them 3) cut a lot of calories by using Pam to fry the eggplant slices. Will definitely make this again!

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
I made this for an impromptu get-together with some friends. Everyone enjoyed it immensely and thought it was better than restaurant enchiladas. The only change I made was to use chicken tenders instead of breasts, because that’s all I had. I also topped the enchiladas with black olives and chopped green onions for a nicer presentation. I’ll definitely make this again!
