Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I really must say I enjoyed this soup. I mostly followed the recipe, but added a few spices to the onion/garlic/celery mixture. I baked two chicken breasts which I had seasoned with seasoned salt, a little poultry seasoning and a bit of bouillon, and after the chicken cooled, cut them up. Also, instead of thickening everything with flour or corn starch, I added a small can of condensed fat-free, sodium-free cream of mushroom soup and condensed fat-free, sodium free cream of chicken. In addition, I added a splash of white wine. Stirred everything up and let it simmer for 20--25 minutes or so. My oh my, a great meal on a cold evening.

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
I made this recently for a barbeque. I used frozen corn, uncooked, for ease of use, cherry tomatoes, halved, and red wine vinegar instead of white vinegar. Mixed everything and let sit overnite in fridge, which allowed the flavors to meld. We really enjoyed it and will definitely make this again.

Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Excellent flavor; very easy to prepare. I made it with frozen green beans as well as fresh. I prefer the fresh because I like the beans a bit on the crispy side. This dish is a winner.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I have never made, let alone eaten, lentil soup, but this recipe intrigued me, so one cold rainy day, I decided to make it. Both my husband and I loved it! After reading other reviews, I changed it up a bit - instead of water, I used a carton of College Inn Chicken Broth and a carton of College Inn White Wine & Herb Culinary Broth; I also added a 14.5 oz can of Italian style stewed tomatoes and a 14.5 oz can of crushed tomatoes; I added a packet of instant brown rice, and I doubled the seasonings; in addition, I used 4 medium sized carrots instead of 2; I also used frozen spinach instead of fresh and added it the soup during the last few minutes of cooking time. This is an excellent soup. You won't be disappointed with this one.

Soba with Toasted Sesame Seed Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
I loved this; I took others' advice and added some rice wine and rice vinegar. I also steamed the broccoli for a minute or two with a splash of soy sauce and sesame oil. In addition, I added some diced red pepper, which I also steamed for a minute. Instead of a large pot of water, I substituted vegetable broth for half of the water, and cooked the noodles in that. It was delicious.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
I made this recently for a barbecue and I'm glad to say that everyone loved it. The modifications I made were this: I used turkey london broil instead of pork; I also cut up an onion, put Chicken Rub on both sides of turkey, stabbed it a few times with a knife, and sealed it in a plastic bag overnight. Like another reviewer, I also added some b-b-q sauce to the root beer. At the end of the cooking time, after draining the meat, I added the rest of the b-b-q sauce and continued cooking in the crock pot on low for at least another hour. The shredded turkey meat turned out very flavorful and very tender, and I definitely plan to make this again and again.

Grilled Pineapple Slices

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
Made these at a b-b-q and they were delicious. I did not dip the pineapple slices in the cinnamon sugar; I just sprinkled it on the slices as I was grilling them. The whole crowd loved them. I will definitely make them again.

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2007
This was delicious. I served this with a side of chicken fried rice and a cabbage salad, which I made using a bag of cole slaw mix and used the dressing from the Asian Chicken Salad recipe on this site to pour over the cole slaw. I also used another reviewer's tonkatsu sauce recipe, to dip the chicken. This meal will become a part of my dinner rotation, for sure.

Quick Chicken with Asparagus and Provolone

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
I made this dish for my husband and me for dinner this evening; we both really enjoyed it. I had a few modifications, which are: I used fresh asparagus, which I quickly sauteed in a little garlic and olive oil; after browning the chicken, I deglazed the pan with a little white wine, and like others, used only half a can of broth. I also took the recommendation of another reviewer and placed a slice of cheese on the chicken, then the asparagus, and then topped with another slice of cheese (I waited until almost the last minute, so as not to completely melt the top piece of cheese). This meal will definitely become part of my dinner rotation.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
This was a big hit at Thanksgiving dinner. I modified the recipie a little bit - I baked 4 large sweet potatoes at 350, each individually wrapped in aluminum foil, until they were very soft, at least an hour or so, and then peeled and mashed them; I used only 1/2 of sugar (not the 1 cup of white sugar called for),but split it up by using 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar; I used half-n-half instead of milk, less butter than called for and used the "lite" variety, and added cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, both to the potato mixture, and to the pecan mixture. Hardly anyone touched the regular mashed potatoes! This dish is a keeper.

Asian Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2006
My husband and I loved this salad. I did not have left-over chicken, so I doubled the dressing and used that to marinate chicken tenderloins, about 30 minutes or so, and then quickly stir-fried them in a bit of canola oil. Like another reviewer, I also added shredded carrots and chopped red pepper to the salad mix. I also used Romaine lettuce and Napa cabbage in place of iceberg lettuce. Although we really enjoyed the crispness of the rice noodles, I hate to admit that they were too much trouble for me -- I found preparing them to be a bit messy. So next time I will use some other type of noodle, unless I can find rice noodles which are already prepared. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Jill.

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2005
Excellent way to cook cod; both my husband and I enjoyed it, and he's not much of a fish eater. I did a few things differently: I used sliced black olives, a bit more garlic, but that is because I really love garlic, and since I did not have fresh cod fillets, I defrosted some frozen ones I had on hand. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly, and the cod was perfectly cooked. There were no leftovers!

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
I made this for dinner one night when my two in-laws were visiting. We all absolutely loved it. I did a few things differently, such as, I used Campbells Cream of Mushroom With Roasted Garlic soup; added one cup of chicken broth to crock pot; I used 7 chicken thighs (skin removed) and browned them in some olive oil and garlic before placing them in the crock pot, and when I placed the chicken in the crock pot, I put thin slices of onion atop each of them. I also added about 1/4 cup of cooking sherry. I cooked it on "low" for 7 hours, but for the last half hour or so, I removed the cover and turned setting to "high". I served the chicken and gravy over noodles. The chicken was falling off the bone! A truly excellent dish.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2004
Wonderful recipe; husband and I both loved it. Like other reviewers, I added a bit more marsala and sherry and also sauted a garlic clove in the oil and butter; husband raved about the dish to friends. Very easy to prepare, too.
