Navy Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2015
I made this yesterday - according to directions with the exception of adding carrot slices at the end for color. While it was cooking, I wasn't sure how I felt about the Worchester Sauce but as the beans softened and opened they seemed to absorb some of the sauce taste and by the end of cooking, it was perfect! My son & granddaughters stopped by and loved it as did my sister. In the end, by the time I divided some off for the others, I ended up with only a few bowls for myself! I will definitely use this recipe from here on. I've made bean soup for years but this version is even better. I hate when people use a recipe and change half the ingredients - then they rate what is essentially not the same thing at all. I don't think I really "changed" much by adding the carrots - they're just a part of almost every soup made around here!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
I made this as instructed by the recipe - no changes, no substitutions - and it was the best banana bread I've ever made (and that's quite a few considering I'm a senior citizen). I served it with Thanksgiving dinner and it was a hit with everyone. I'll definitely make this again!!

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2014
I made this exactly as outlined in the recipe (why rate things when you basically change the entire recipe by adding and subtracting ingredients?). It was tasty and I'll make it again. Left to my own devices, my chicken noodle soup is often rather bland; this recipe solves that problem.

Guacamole

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
I made this exactly per the recipe and it was marvelous! I've never made Guacamole before - actually I've only tasted it once or twice - but this was delicious and my company went through it in a very short time! I will be making this again - many times - a sure-fire hit!!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
I'm really pleased with the recipe - tastes great as is but I do think that the next time I'll thicken the sauce a little. I doubled the mushrooms this time - but will triple them the next time.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
This is a great recipe. I did end up adding some salt, chili powder & chipolte - but that's to my taste. I also didn't read it correctly and only had one can of tomatoes w/chilies so I added another can of diced tomatoes and chopped up a canned green chili to add. I hate reading where people "added this and lessened that" to the point where it's no longer the same recipe but what I changed was just tweaking to my own taste buds. The soup is very tasty - especially with some freshly grated cheddar on top!

Sauteed Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
I made this the other day for the Sunday dinner and used fresh and also a package of steamed green beans with a few extra almonds - it was wonderful. My family devoured the entire bowl. This will be a staple in our family's meal plans!

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I thought I'd give this a try because of the rating but must admit it looked rather "simple" to be much of anything. Surprise! This is really good and very flavorful. I cut back a tad on the chili powder because I use Penzey spices - still has a nice kick to it. I'll be keeping this recipe close by for future use.
