Cod au Gratin

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
I will give this recipe five stars it was excellent! Had all the qualities of a good meal for a busy mom. Quick and easy to prepare, kid friendly, and it was essentially a two pan dish! Now it would have been a bit bland as given so I doctored it up some with season salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and dry mustard. I also skipped the boiling step by using pre-cooked and breaded fish filets from the store. I did not remove the breading because it's no different than bread crumbs! I also felt the cheese needed some play so I used mild cheddar, aged swiss and mozzarella and sprinkled it in between layers as well as on top. My three year old who has not cleaned her plate in eight mos had three helpings of this! My one year old (who eats everything) attacked it! My husband ate it happily and I loved it. A great easy main course. DELICIOUS!

Crispy Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
My family loves these hands down!! Our picky two and a half year old devoured her plate and actually asked for seconds (this NEVER happens!!). I did use plain bread crumbs and real eggs but that's only because that's what I had on hand. A delicious recipe all in all!!

Porcupine Meatballs II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
These were awesome! I spiced them up a bit with a pinch of each rosemary, thyme, cilantro, pepper, italian seasoning, some minced onion, garlic, and seasoned salt. I also precooked longrain brown rice before making the meat balls. For the tomato soup, I used one 10 oz can tomato soup, filled that can with milk and added it to a bowl, then added one can of tomato sauce and added thyme, rosemary, ground parsley, and about two tablespoons of brown sugar. I cooked it all in the oven together for an hour at 350. It was definitely a hit!! Wonderful foundation recipe.

Taco Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This is good, but I think we'll stick to my version because my two year old thought it spicy.

Spanish Taco Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This recipe was alright, but I think I'll stick to my version of Spanish rice. I use enough rice to match the number of people I'm serving (usually two to four) and cook it according to directions. Then drain all water off just before fully cooked. Pour in one can of your favorite enchilada sauce. Then once fully cooked, let stand five minutes so rice absorbs most liquid. Once it's absorbed, add about 1 cup of shredded mozzarella or taco cheese. I also add corn and black beans. Stir, serve and enjoy! If not spicy enough either add 1 tsp Tapatio sauce or 1/2 tsp cayenne and chili pepper. Enjoy!
