Cajun Style Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
Theses were delicious. I have a bumper crop of green, red and yellow bell peppers so this was a tasty way to use them. Each had its own flavor. I used more sausage just cause it is better than rice. I used about 1/2 to 3/4 of the rice and adjusted the liquids. We all loved it, even my 10 and 8 year olds. Will definitely make again. Thanks!

Smokey Chipotle Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This was very good! We are not usually meatloafers but I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and gave it try. I did not use a loaf pan but formed a loaf on a foil lined pan. Worked great! It even sat in the oven an extra hour covered with foil (with the oven off) waiting for the DH to get home. Still hot and yummy! Really good flavor. Lots of kick. Served it with some cheesy rice. Can't wait to try it with elk meat.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
This was very yummy! I took it to a church function and everyone raved. Perfect seasonings. I made my own tahini too which was worth it. Now that I can make tahini I am hooked on hummus.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Made this for the fam and doubled it. It took much longer than the 6-8 minutes to thicken up. I won't quite double the broth next time. I used an immersion blender to mash up the lentils. I had to add more spice b/c we like spicy food. I didn't put the salsa in the lentils but served it on the side with fresh guac. It was funny to see all the skeptical faces turn to smiles as they realized how tasty, healthy, and inexpensive this meal is. My DH is planning to take lentils on camping trips. I can't wait to share this recipe with friends who are very budget conscience lately. Thanks! Update: I made this again, doubling it, and used 4 cups of beef broth. It makes sense to use beef if you are trying to make it taste like beef! It was even better! I also put a can of diced green chilis in with the lentils.

Chicken Tortilla Soup IV

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This was very good. I didn't fry tortillas but made my own flour tortilla chips to serve on the side with guacamole. I sauteed a bit of onion and jalapeno pepper at the very beginning b/c I never cook without some onion. :) I had 2 cups shredded chicken to begin with so I had to use more broth. I also subbed Rotel for the salsa and added some cayenne pepper for some more kick. I also subbed an 11oz. can of corn with green and red peppers. This soup was very yummy and will be on permanent rotation.

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
This really is more of a jambalaya because there is no roux and the rice is cooked in it. That said, it is delicious. I halved the recipe using a can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos instead of the 2 cans called for. I also added a 1/2 pound of diced smoked sausage. I cooked it first, removed it from the pan, then proceeded putting the sausage back in with the peas, etc. I also rinsed and drained the peas, ICK! I added some salt to taste and some tabasco. I used white rice only cooking for 20 minutes and it was great! Thanks, this will be a winter staple.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
YUMMY! I used some of the reviews and used 2 T. butter, 2 T. mustard (spicy brown), and the 5 t. honey. I didn't measure the crumbs but used 2 slices of bread and a couple small handfuls of pecans. I didn't have fresh parsley so used dried. I also refrigerated the mustard mix first so it was thick. Very yummy--will be a staple of my salmon repertoire.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This was great. I used 1.25 pounds of shrimp so I basically eyeballed the seasonings but used 2 cloves of garlic since I love it. Easy to make and the whole family loved it. Served with grilled asparagus. YUM!

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This was very good. I had to judge the amount of filling to make. I used probably 8 or 9 slices of bacon and at least 1/4 pound of cheese. My pork chops were about 1.5 inches thick and there was barely enough filling for the 2 pounds I had. I'll make this again and make more. I forgot to put the pepper in the filling but just salted and peppered the chops. I seared the chops in some bacon grease and then put the skillet in the oven at 350 until there was no more pink. I had to keep checking them but don't remember how long it took. The family loved it but wanted MORE FILLING! Thanks for the recipe!

Ratatouille Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
This was very good! I made this with a medium sized eggplant and 2 medium zucchini. I added about 6 mushrooms. I used 6 oz. penne pasta. I had 1 can of the fire roasted tomatoes and added about 1/3 jar of pasta sauce since I didn't have any paste. I stirred the cooked pasta into the veggie mixture and put into 9x13 dish. It filled it up! I put the mozz. cheese on top and some parmesan. Then I took about a 1/2 cup of italian bread crumbs, melted a tablespoon or so margarine in them, stirred and topped the casserole. Watch it so it doesn't burn. If you have other things to prepare just put it in a 350 oven until everything else is ready. Delcious, kids loved it. Serves more like 6 adults or 8 with kids.

Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
I made this for my husband for Valentine's Day. We loved it! However, I feel that a little chocolate is always good so I found a recipe for an Oreo crust and made that instead of the graham crackers. I found some other recipes that put a layer of caramel between the crust and filling and that might be a good addition to this next time. It was delicious and my DH says it is his favorite cheesecake ever! Oh, I did substitute the Splenda/sugar stuff for the sugar cutting it in half, saving a few calories I guess. I also used the water bath method to bake this since I live at 7000 ft. Worked great! The baking time of 65 minutes plus 15 minutes with the oven off and door open was perfect!

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Very, very good! I pretty much stuck to the recipe but probably had closer to 5 cups of chicken so had to use more mayo. I made sandwiches with mini-kaiser rolls from the bakery section. 1/3 cup was the perfect amount and it made 14 sandwiches. I served them at a ladies' board meeting. It was a hit. This will be my standard from now on. Thanks for the recipe.

Kentucky Style Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
I made this a few months ago when I had a ton of green 'maters in my garden. I'd never had nor made Fried Green Tomatoes. We really enjoyed them and I think this recipe probably makes THE best FGT's but it will not be one of our regular things. Maybe once a year to say we did it. The green tomato taste was strange to us.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
The flavors were yummy. I added mushrooms in with the onions and then chopped cooked ham with the spinach. I used 8 oz. of colby jack cheese because I couldn't find Muenster (I probably didn't look hard enough). I saved some of the cheese for the top. I used 5 jumbo eggs but 6 would have been better with the extra stuff I added. Next time I will add some crushed red pepper or use some pepper jack cheese for some kick. The family LOVED it. This is a recipe you can do anything with. Bacon would have been fabulous in it. It is a keeper.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
OMIGOSH! I love this stuff! My kids even love it. It is growing on my husband. I followed the recipe pretty much. I peeled and cut the squash, put the pieces in a plastic bag with olive oil, garlic, and added a little sage and nutmeg and shook it up. Then I poured it onto a foil lined baking sheet and salted and peppered it. I baked it at 400 with no problems. Every 10-15 minutes I took it out and picked up the ends of the foil to help me "stir" it without tearing the foil. It only took about 35 minutes though. I forgot to add the parmesan but I'm not sure it would be better with it. This is awesome with Brussel Sprouts Lardons. It is so nice to have another yellow/orange veggie to serve. You gotta try it.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
This was very, very good. I made it for my in-laws last night. They love cajun food so I was hoping for the best. I made it for 5 people so I used 2 large chicken breasts and a couple tenders plus a pound of medium shrimp. I cut the chicken into thin strips to cook faster. I did not double the peppers but I did double the green onion and seasonings. I kept adding Tony's cajun seasoning so I probably used way more than called-for. We love spicy food. I cooked the chicken, removed it from the pan, cooked the peppers a little longer than called-for cause I don't like them super crunchy. When they were almost the way I like them I threw in the shrimp. When the shrimp was almost done I put the chicken back in and then the cream. I heated it through then threw all that in the big pot with the drained pasta. I used 10 ounces of bowties. I used 1 cup heavy cream and another cup of half and half. It was a little runny but I tossed in a bunch of parmesan at the end which kind of thickened it up. Even after we all had seconds I ended up with some leftovers which is better than not enough. Next time I'm going to experiment with fat-free half and half and maybe not use so much or find some way to thicken it first. I served it with salad and french bread. The sauce was so good we all "sopped" it up with our bread! SUPER DELICIOUS!!

Creolized Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
OMG! This was fabulous! I used Conecuh brand smoked sausage from Alabama. The best! I made up some of the Creole Seasoning Blend from this site to use as the seasoning. Otherwise I kept the recipe as is. Cutting the chicken breasts to stuff was a snap! I used Marie's Chunky Bleu Cheese dressing. I covered the dish with foil lightly for the whole cooking time. The dressing started to look curd-ly so I thought it better to keep it on there so it wouldn't look dry and cracked. You could always slightly warm some dressing and put it on at the end. Fantastic!!

Pecan Snack

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
Oh my gosh, these are so good and so easy! I went with the advice of one reviewer and upped the sugar to 1 cup and the cinnamon to 1 tablespoon and they were fantastic. I can't stop eating them. These will make great gifts for teachers, kids' bus driver, mail person, etc.... Thanks!!!!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Very yummy. I cut my chicken breasts into strips/chunks and browned them very quickly in a pan. I then stirred them into the artichoke mixture, then baked in a casserole dish. I also did 1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream I served it over egg noodles so really could have used more sauce. The fam told me to put it on permanent rotation.
