Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2005
I am updating my review on 02/23/2008. What I have been doing lately is using the Italian Butter recipe on this site when making these croutons and it is delicious. Use 1 T of Italian butter instead of herbs and garlic. Super! I have made these wonderful croutons several times now and they are always delicious! I use about 3/4 parts olive oil and 1/4 part Smart Balance Margarine. I use garlic powder and dried italian herbs---superb!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
I have made this multiple times and it's always terrific. USE BUTTER. I keep mine in the freezer and chop/slice off what I need with a good knife. I have used vidahlia, green and regular old onion and combos thereof---it's always yummy! today I thought I'd be smart and add some shredded parmesan romano---nope, does not enhance the flavor and I pulled out the lumps of cheese with my whisk. I also use the immersion blender and leave some good chunkiness as well. I have made a vegetarian version by using veggie broth/stock with excellent results as long as you use that butter. fresh and wonderful.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
This was absolutely delicious. The dressing was so fresh. I made this the day before and stored it in the frig in a large ziploc overnite. I used a red and orange pepper because our friends can't eat green pepper. I also omitted the cilantro as hubby doesn't like it but the rest was done as written and got RAVE reviews at our mexican fiesta superbowl party. Served this with the crockpot Carnitas recipe and Mexican Rice II both from Allrecipes. Everyone raved and wanted recipes!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
This is now our Thanksgiving Stuffing every year. Dad and my Hubby love it as do I. I follow the recipe fairly faithfully as far as quantities but... 1. I don't usually add the turkey liver 2. I use Pepperidge Farm sage and onion or Herbed (non cube) style stuffing instead of fresh bread. 3. I have used both Turkey Brats and Jimmie Dean Sage sausage or a combo. Lately I have been making it exclusively with the Dean Sage sausage. 4. Use fresh herbs from the garden (double qty) as we are usually in Florida for Thanksgiving with the folks. 5. Never stuff the turkey but make this in a separate casserole--covered for most of the cooking time and remove the lid so we get a nice crust for the last 15-30 minutes depending on how many servings I have made. The fresh apple, Turkey Sausage, fresh parsley and dried cranberries really combine so beautifully flavor-wise. Delicious with Mom's turkey gravy!

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
Just made this on a chilly winter day and it was delicious. I left out the potato since I didn't have any in the house but I added an acorn squash instead. Also spiced things up with about 1 tblsp each of madras curry powder, garam masala and some curry paste. Just mashed this with the potato masher and thickened with a little wondra flour--richly yummy without all that fat.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
This was delicious! I added some jalapeno's from the jar and only 1/2 teaspoon cayenne and it was spiced right for us. Also used a little Wondra flour to thicken it up a bit. Served this with long grain rice and it was perfect. Can't wait to make this again--YUM!

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2006
Didn't pull out the slow cooker as I only had some pre-grilled frozen chicken breast slices. I put it all in my large dutch oven and added some fresh yellow, red and poblano peppers. Also added a can of chili ready tomato. Served with Shredded white sharp cheddar and minced vidahlia onion--very good!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
I just made this for dinner with leftover pork and beef and it was superb. I did dredge the meat in flour and browned then added onion. Used the white wine to loosen everything from the bottom of the pan then followed the rest of the recipe. We loved it and it's so simple!

Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
The complexity of flavors with the coffee, beer and cocoa is wonderful and rich. I added some chipotle peppers since I didn't have any fresh hot peppers also only added 1/4 cup brown sugar (per other reviewers comments) and it tastes perfect for us.

Caribbean Rum Punch

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
This punch is so much better than the sum of its parts. I had my hubby try it without telling him what was in it and he loved it! He couldn't quite identify the ingredients and mentioned a "peach" flavor, which I didn't taste. I also scaled the recipe for 2 drinks instead of 20 as this was a trial run. YUMMY! 12/10/11 - reviewing this again as I just made a full batch. Used only 1 cup homemade simple syrup and that was PLENTY! added extra bitters and a full tsp of fresh grated nutmeg. also added the juice of one lemon and another cup of pineapple juice. Then it was a bit on the sour side so I added 1/2 cup of Orgeat syrup (almond sweet syrup), a pinch of ground clove and now it is sublime---not too sweet, not too tart, not too boozy (for this crowd). Next time I would add some banana flavor or OJ with Mango or something. Very good just not GREAT.

Blackened Chicken

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
Just made this with 2 huge chicken breasts and it was excellent. Cut the chicken into about 8 pieces since they were so huge and doubled the spice mix. I did not have onion powder so I substituted about 1/4 tsp of seasoned salt for the salt and onion powder. All other seasonings were used as indicated. I also just did on the stove in the pan--did not use the oven. Sprinkled some EVOO in the pan and then sprayed with butter spray during cooking---removed the pan from the heat to spray!!! Hubby loved this. nice and spicy cut up on a green salad. will also use for sandwiches and chix salad. Really nice flavor!!!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
Oh my gosh!! Super yummy, moist delicious-ness. Cut up 3 carrots, 3 celery stalks, a med onion and threw this in the crockpot. Added about 2 tblsp butter. Rubbed the 6.5 - 7 lb breast with low sodium Mrs. Grass onion soup mix. Meant to add more seasoning like Thyme, sage, or Poultry but completely forgot about this part. cooked breast side up for 1 hour on high, turned breast down for 1 hr on high and then about 6 hours on low. Made Mashed Potatoes, and roasted some more carrots, celery, onion and a fennel bulb cut up and tossed with EVOO, sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Served with the Crockpot juice ladled over the top. WOW!

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
YUMMO! Mixed up my own curry powder (tumeric, cumin, coriander, cayenne, ginger, clove, nutmeg) and used about 1 tablespoon of this yellow curry powder mix which is about double what the recipe calls for. Added a small golden delish apple diced, and 1 sm and 1 lrg skinless chicken breast diced to the simmering curry broth. Also added a few garlic cloves and fresh minced ginger root...I have a cold and need the spice!! Smells like a cure---adding some 2% milk to save some Kcals...Hubby is in heaven!!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I have made this several times now to rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I have been adding the entire 4 oz of chopped jalapeno for a nice, but not overly, spicy-ness. Also, per other reviewers, I have done 1/2 C parmesan and 1/2 C panko bread crumbs for the topping. This also is better in a bit shallower dish so the ratio of topping to spread is more even.

Caesar Salad II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I just made this and it does indeed turn out creamy without adding mayo or egg. I crushed about 6 cloves garlic, but started with 3 for a doubled recipe. After taste test I added three more cloves to about 1 cup olive oil, 2 T grey poupon, juice of 1 juicy lemon. By drizzling in a very thin stream when adding the olive oil to the blender, I got a nice creamy dressing. Also didn't have Worchestershire sauce so I used Maggi seasoning. Also added about 12 med sized crushed croutons which really enhanced the whole thing. Very Good!

Egg Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2005
Just made this for a quick lunch and hubby loved it. I added finely diced celery and used low fat mayo--deelish. The dill and paprika did not overpower the egg. Will definitely make this again!

Broccoli Casserole III

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
12/22/12 - Cook then DRAIN the Broccoli Extremely well or it will be runny!!! Re-evaluating on 12/16/09 - did this with frozen broccoli - almost doubled the broccoli to 36 oz, slightly thawed in the microwave. tossed this with the cheese cubes--used 2 % and regular velveeta 12 oz. Added a few cranks of pepper and freshly grated nutmeg over the top of the broccoli before adding cracker, 48 crackers, topping with about 1/4 cup butter and 2-3 tblsp smart balance. It's in the oven now in two pyrex so I can re-heat tomorrow for the office party.---------- Very easy, very yummy and very rich. Everyone loved the flavor especially the buttery ritz topping!
