Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
So of course I totally changed it based on what I had at home. Sauteed onions, garlic, cherry tomatoes cut in half and asparagus cut into small pieces. Added dried oregano, dried thyme and fresh sage as well as salt and pepper all to taste. Then browned the turkey, added in the veggie mixture and a can of organic diced tomatoes with jus. Added a little sugar and then let this simmer slowly while I cooked one pound of penne rigate. Mixed the two, put into a 9X13 glass baking pan, mixed some sour cream with cream cheese in the carton and spread it out over the pasta mixture, then put a generous helping of shredded mixed italian cheeses (did not bother using the real parmegiano reggiano or provolone since this is an American dish in my opinion) and then baked for 25 mins at 350F. I enjoy casseroles and the creativity you can have with them. My husband doesn't care for baked pasta. I'd make it again because the combinations and options are limitless - all veggie, or using beef or pork or a mixture. Easy to make and you can get creative. I never measure seasonings or much of anything, just do it by eye/taste and it comes out well.

Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2014
I used the parmesan grated into seasoned breadcrumbs since that is all I had at home. It was dark golden brown, finished in oven, used pesto on 2 of the breasts,and my quick homemade sauce with crushed tomatoes, onions, garlic, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper. The sauce was simple but flavorful enough, added the cheese and pesto, and more freshly grated provolone and parmegiano reggiano on top. baked at 450 degrees for about 10 mins, until the cheese was slightly golden. the chicken was juicy, moist and crust was crunchy. my husband loved it. we did not serve any sides as the breast was very large to begin with. would make again with more changes/tweaks next time. but nothing beats a homemade sauce! i think that and the fresh italian cheeses are what make the difference. oh and not to waste the leftover breadcrumbs i just added one egg to it and made a large flat patty and fried it like my grandmother used to because i was so hungry so i'd have something to eat while waiting for the chicken to cook. it's a tradition in my family and new for my husband and he absolutely loved it!try it you'll love it too!

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
Followed the recipe except for these changes: heaping measurements of spices; added extra beer and liquid smoke and worcestershire sauce; used nesquick "less sugar" variety chocolate milk powder to taste instead of instant hot cocoa since that's all I had at home; used less red chili pepper flakes; omitted hot sauce at the end. Love the ratio of turkey meat to beans. Enjoyed the sweetness of the corn in there. The flavors are complex and layered. The cheese, sour cream and scallions juxtapose the heat from the chili. My husband does not love super spicy foods like I do, but he thoroughly enjoyed it as well. A hearty, relatively healthy chili that will remain in my rotation. I can't wait to taste it tomorrow again!

Green Bean "Almondine" with Garlic and Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
I changed the recipe as I did not have almonds or blue cheese. I just substituted roughly chopped walnuts and goat cheese. Turned out delicious! I think even without the cheese or nuts this dish would be tasty on it's own because of the roasted garlic - well worth the time. I roasted the garlic while marinating my chicken, and prepping couscous as a starch. This way the oven was hot and ready to go for my chicken to bake!

Creamy Cabbage with Apples and Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
this dish was excellent....almost as i remember it back in europe. only the american bacon is not quite like in europe (the smoky, fatty version is better). i did not have coriander (which is the key) and used fennel seed instead. was delicious with a hint of fennel as well. i like that sour cream is used instead of heavy cream or butter...was just as rich!
