Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
Easy. Great to re purpose leftover chicken. Only deviation from written review, is that I used probably a bit more chicken than called for, 1 can Campbell's broccoli cheese, 1 can cream of chicken, a bit more milk to compensate for second can, and bag of mixed veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini). Was delish. I made Brown rice and quinoa for side options. Dev will make again. Thank you

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
Only thing I did different was added one packet Beefy onion soup mix bc I had no onion. perhaps that was the reason for the taste, but still could not see this improving THAT much with just an onion added. (and i added celery, shredded carrots, basil, and oregano as others suggested)

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
We wanted to prep the night before, so to the crock pot bowl, we added diced russet potatoes, a sliced bunch of leeks, and broth to cover completely (along with the evaporated milk that was mistakelny added). Refrigerated it covered overnight (read that this was ok to do) and next morning set it in the base and cooked it for 9 hours on low (added 1 hour to compensate for the refrigeration) We came home from work and it was inedible. The potatoes were firm and did not soften even after simmering on the stovetop for quite some time?! wierd!! I'm giving it afour so as to not taint its results bc i am sure it was something that i did since others did not have this problem.

Fruit Dip I

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
to make ur own fluff: 1 (6- or 7-ounce) jar Marshmallow Creme or Fluff = Gently heat 1 (16-ounce) package marshmallows plus 3 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup. Gently melt in a double boiler, stirring constantly. Great if you don't refrigerate - turns gelatinous

Raspberry Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
To start, it went against my gut to line the pan with aluminum foil. When these were done, I did not know if they were to cool on wire rack directly or in pan...thinking they would cool to the foil, I flipped it onto a wire rack - very carefully, I might add b/c it was cracking and was only about 1/4 inch deep (?) and it still was hard to remove the foi and some adhered... The bakers chocolate either needs to be cut into small pieces before pouring the milk/yolk mixture or to be directly added to the milk yolk mixture while in the pot over low heat b/c it did not fully melt. Third, the topping was impossible to get smooth like some pictures show. This definitely was not presentable like I'd hoped. I topped with chocolate chips scattered to hide the imperfection of the frosting. I did give 4 stars though because the taste was still quite yummy - although none of my guests made any comments either way...

Pasta Primavera Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I used all ingredients listed except tom paste, instead I used tomato sauce and I took another's advice and used broth instead of water. The only modification I made was to saute all the veggies in the olive oil and garlic for about 10 min (gradually- as I chopped each veggie, I added it to the pan) before adding the diced tomatoes and sauce. I tossed this with a corkscrew pasta, added a little grated cheese and YUM. Even my 4 and 2 y/o ate it up!

Potatoes Au Gratin with Fennel and Bacon

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
DELISH! I used smart balance margarine in lieu of butter, reduced the flour to 4T, used 1 12 oz can f/f evaporated milk and additional 8 oz of 1% milk (6 oz initially and the other 2 as the cheese sauce congealed between layering to thin it out), used 4 oz of velveeta 2%, 9 slices (1/2 package) of low sodium bacon, and added a small onion cut into rings and layered with everything. I was skeptical about the basil, and thought parsley would work better, but tried it and it worked! thanks for this recipe.

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
This is the exact recipe that appears on the onion soup mix box. i thought it was "eh" but hubby and kids loved it. I however am not partial to stringy, shredded meat, so hence my bias.

Zucchini Pasta II

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
I followed exaclty except making a few changes to measurement: I used 2 zucchini (one green one yellow) * 3/4 can instead of 3/4 cup chicken broth, added a little at a time to keep it moist and creamy omitted roasted red peppers (only b/c i did not have) I used 3 tablespoons whipped cream cheese and I added 1/2 cup milk with 1 Tbs of flour mixed into it into it. This was definately a keeper. I used someone else's suggestion and cooked my chicken breasts in ICBINB spray along with a tsp of it seasoning. Not bad, but next time I will try marinating in a lemon-based marinade and grilling before adding it to the mix.

Raisin Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
I thought these were delicious, only I would have liked 12 big muffins instead of small ones. Don't yet know how well this doubles, but i will try next time. The only changes I made were that I used 1 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1.5 tsp of cinn, 1/2 cup of Apple juice in place of the milk, 2 Tbs melted butter in place of the canola oil, and a little more than a cup of diced (red delicious) apples The crumb topping is also very tasty! My hubby and 18 month old son loved them!

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
Thank you, Aunt Mary! These were ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! i didn't even have the time to refrigerate them at all, but agree that it would only make for an improvement if i had. i peeled the skin off, because of preference, and mashed them after steaming (you need to stir them every few minutes) and only baked them for twenty minutes because i finshed cooking them in my pot of sauce. My husband and his male friends (sorry to be stereotypical) preferred them to my meatballs! I can't wait to make them into a veggie burger, too!! This recipe will live on in my family.

Beef Stroganoff with Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
This was the first time i ever even ate stroganoff, and I liked it, as well as my hubby and his friends. However, it could have definatly used some carrots, green beans, even potatoes...mmmmm! I followed the recipe exactly, omitting the salt, and found that the bacon took a long time to cook. After simmering for the 1 1/2 hrs, i removed the floating bacon pieces and discarded them...they didn't look to appetizing! But thanks for the recipe we willl use it again!

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
This was a wonderful recipe, and it is so easy to experiment with. The only adjustments i made was adding a chopped italian frying pepper to the onion/sausage/zucchini/tomato combo, and some italian seasoning and parsley. I also diced up the sauasge before putting it in the oven. We will definately make this again! i think i might stuff this mixture inside an eggplant! Yummmy!

S.O.P.P.

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2003
i took the advise of other reviewers and cooked the sausage seperately ( i broiled it, after having marinaded it and the onions in some teriyaki sauce) and added other spices to the potatoes as they were cooking. They took 20 min to soften and even then they weren't as soft as i'd like them.
