Rueben Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2005
Love this recipe! Its great for one of those days that's a bit chilly, and you have an extra pair of hands to help with the prep work. I used the ham (leftovers) and cheese option, with sauerkraut. Its on my personal list for the future.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
Made this just as posted, except I used shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheese, with a pinch of cayanne pepper. It was great, and my husband asked me to especially make note to serve this again, soon!

Boiled Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
Perfect "starter" recipe for so many chicken dishes. Definitely use a whole chicken, and when the meat has fallen off the bone, keep those bones, vegetables used to season the meat and cartilage, after stripping the cooled meat, to make stock using the water remaining from boiling the chicken. I use the chicken to make chicken mole, and make stock to freeze in cubes or for soup the next night.

Great with grilled beef. You can also use canned kidney or pinto beans. I like to add sliced green onion and a pinch of chili powder just before serving.

Honey Dijon Fettuccine and Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
Superb! I used chicken thighs and boneless chicken breast cut in strips (what was on hand). Blended in a tablespoon of Honey Mustard, made the sauce separately, and browned the chicken a bit before adding the sauce. Otherwise, didn't change a thing. Served with Basmati rice and squash. My family loved it!

Spaghetti with Tomato and Sausage Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
Spectacular! I didn't have plum tomatoes, but used stewed tomatoes I had on hand. Used shiraz, as the previous reviewer had mentioned; mine wound up cooking about 6 hours, as I have the flu. The recipe submitter is right, the longer you simmer, the better it is (I did taste, throughout, using my own spoon)It proved to be wonderful comfort food on a cold winter day for my whle family, and not too spicy for my mother-in-law...

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2005
Great recipe. Found it during an ingredient search of this site. Scaled it to 3 servings. Used Italian turkey/chicken sausage, leftover ham slices, chunks of yellow, red and orange peppers equivalent to a single bell pepper. Added another small chile pepper, another chopped garlic clove and about 1/2 can of rinsed red kidney beans. Took off heat and sprinkled with the juice of 1/2 lime just before serving. Added additional cilantro. Served this with warm tortillas and fresh fruit. I will be doing this one again, whenever I can get mangoes (difficult to get in rural Saskatchewan!)

Seared Scallops with Tropical Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2004
This was fabulous! I used the smaller scallops, as that was all that was available; otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. I will definitely be making this one again! As other reviewers noted, this salsa would be great on many other meat or fish.

Sage Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2004
This was delicious! I did not have sage (unforgiveable, but I live in a small town!) so I used an Italian herb blend and added one half teaspoon additional rosemary. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. It was wonderful! My mother-in-law's reaction is my benchmark, as she is very fussy about meals. She also loved this. She pointed out that this could easily use any plain, canned beans. Good to know. I definitely plan to make this, again. It was easy to fix after work, nutritious, and my family loved it; what more could you want?

HERB-OX® Bouillon Pork Chops with Burgundy Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2004
This was GREAT! I did not have fresh mushrooms, (small town, the store was all out) so used 14 oz. of canned mushrooms. I poured the wine over the drained mushrooms to marinate about a ahlf hour before cooking. I added a bit more wine to the sauce while cooking. I also had to use a grainy mustard, rather than Dijon, but added a sweet onion mustard, to make it more like Dijon mustard. I will definitely be making this easy, delicious recipe again.

Mashed Potato, Rutabaga, And Parsnip Casserole With Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2004
I served this with a thyme and rosemary seasoned pork roast last night. I scaled it to four servings, as we are a small family. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. My husband, who always said he "hates" rutabagas and parsnips, loved this recipe. He went back for thirds! My mother-in-law also loved this, and I will definitely make this again. Peeling all the vegetables was worth the effort.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
We love this recipe, and my husband has asked me to make it for a dinner party. I made this recipe with the following changes: I marinated the chicken breasts in the balsamic vinegar in a plastic bag for 30 minutes. I started the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan ten minutes before the marinating time was up. I accidentally added 1/2 teaspoon thyme, but we love thyme with chicken, and I plan to make this exactly that way, next time. I used the George Foreman grill, grilling the mushrooms first for three minutes, then grilling the chicken breasts for 4 minutes. I added the mushrooms 7 minutes before the sauce and chicken was done. Other than that, I used all the listed ingredients, and it was delicious. I served this with white and wild rice and green beans. My mother in law, who takes a lot of coaxing to get enough protien dishes, loved this!

Pan Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2003
A real family favorite, in my household. A did not have seasoning salt, as we are trying to cut down on sodium intake, so I added 1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash, with dashes of garlic and onion powder. It was delicious!

Rice Noodles with Shiitakes, Choy, and Chiles

Reviewed: May 27, 2004
We loved this!. I cooked the rice noodles first, with a drop or two of sesame oil, then added only about 1/3 to the wok. The rest I set aside for placing the vegetable mixture atop. I used fresh chiles and reconstituted, dried shitakes, but followed the time and cooking instructions, otherwise. I have already alerted our produce manager that I will be ordering the chile peppers frequently, as I plan on making this often.

Onion Pan-Fried Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
Outstanding! I did not have onion soup mix, but using the general recipe, I added dried minced onion, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper. Good extra-virgin olive oil is important, too. My husband asked that we have this again, next week!

Stir-Fried Vegetables with Chicken or Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
I made this the other night for my family. Easy and adaptable recipe. I did not have mushroom soy sauce, so used more oyster sauce while cooking, and added soy sauce at table. I added the kernels of a fresh cob of corn, and used pork. I sprinkled a tablespoon of sake in the pan to keep things from sticking. Served over Thai rice sticks. Yum! Look forward to making this with chicken.

Barbeque Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2005
Wonderful! I have the feeling using fresh lemon juice is key...I bought lemons strictly for this recipe, although I had bottled lemon juice. It was perfect, and the marinade smelled great! Served it with a Greek salad and an eggless potato salad. Heated the marinade next to the chicken, for safety. Made a great basting sauce... Thanks, Ann, for a real keeper.
