Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

This was very delicious, I used this recipe as a meatless Monday meal. I made the following changes. Instead of 5 cups of water I used 4 cups of veggie stock and 1 cup water, 1-14.5 oz can of tomato sauce, 1-14.5 oz can diced tomatoes and about a 1/4 cup diced carrots .. Served with side salad and sliced watermelon. Will make again

Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
This recipe wars delicious and a definite keeper. I had everything on hand except for the cider vinegar using rice vinegar instead. As with many others suggestions I cooked my over 2bls roast for 2 hours and basted every half hour taking the cover off the last half hour of cooking to get a nice crust on the top. Served with some baby carrots and baby gold potatoes, oven roasted broccoli and salad

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Made this dish for dinner tonight along with some homemade fries. It was a HIT !! even with my picky eater ( what he didn't know didn't hurt him ). Changes I made were this, I used one 15 oz can of black beans ( Drained ) and 1 can of refried beans, strainded the onion and pepper mixture ( using 1/2 yellow pepper instead of green ) and seasoned with Emerils essance instead of the chili powder and cumin. I baked in the oven at 350, but thought it needed more cooking time so I turned up the oven to 375 and cooked another 10 min. Will make again, but may use brown rice instead of bread crumbs to see if they hold together better

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
This was delicious !! I followed the directions, but as with many others I made a few changes. I sauteed the onions and celery together in 2 TBS of butter, I didn't have any poultry seasoning, but did have a " butchers blend " that I seasoned the chicken with, then boiled it with the carrots ( leaving out the peas because I didn't have any and am not a fan of frozen ) in the amount of chicken broth called for. I pre baked the bottom crust in a 425 degree oven for 8 min then set aside to cool while making the filling. I added the broth, milk and because it wasn't thick enough for me, I also added 1 can of cream of chicken soup to the gravy mixture and it made more then enough gravy. Placed everything into the pre baked crust and set the pie plate on a cookie sheet and in the oven baking for 35 min at 425 .. I would say to let it set for more then 10 min to thicken closer to 20 min .. will make again. I thougth about using this for a beef or in my case a lamb potpie using beef broth, gravy mix and some of the left over lamb I have in the freezer from Easter Sunday ... this recipe is a keeper ..

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
Prepared this dish for dinner tonight, but by the time I came across the recipe it was too late to place it in the crock pot, so I baked the dish in the oven and it turned out fine. Everyone enjoyed the dish but think I will cut back on the amount of soy sauce the next time I prepare it and add a bit more brown sugar and tomato sauce. I did make a few changes to the dish. Number 1. As with many other viewers, I used both legs and thighs. 2. I left the skin on the chicken and sesoned with Emeril's Essence ( recipe at foodnetwork.com) | 3. Browned it in some olive oil, then removed from pot to wipe out excess grease. 4. I prepared the sauce according to directions then added approximately 1 TB ketchup, dash of ginger, garlic salt, onion salt and 2 tsp chopped garlic. Placing the chicken back into the pot used to brown it in, I pour sauce over the chicken and then baked in a 375 degree oven for 1 hr 45 min. The chicken fell off the bone. Next time I plan on doublling the recipe for the sauce, leaving out half of the soy sauce called for. Served over brown rice with a side veggie and sliced cucumbers.

True Lancashire Hot Pot

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
Was looking for a recipe to used up some leftover lamb when I came across this particular recipe. Everyone in the family loved it right down to my picky eater. This was easy to prepare and made just enough to have leftovers for lunch the next day. I did the following changes. For the potatoes I used large reds because that was what I happen to have had on hand,sliced them 1/4 inch thick with my mandolin and rather then boil, I steamed them to make it easier to get the correct consistency without the fear of over cooking. I chopped the bacon before frying then once browned and removed from the pan, I proceeded to saute the onions in the bacon fat which I believe added to the flavor of the dish until they were soft. I layed according to the recipe direction, then placed the dish in the oven cooking according to the directions and served with a side salad. This recipe is a keeper.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Made this dish over the weekend and it was a hit. Wanted to try out the new electric grill I had recived as a Christmas gift, and this was the perfect time to put it to the test. I cooked the steaks first, let them rest off to the side for about 10 min while warming hoagie rolls in oven. Sliced steaks thin, and rather then using mozzarella cheese I served with grated cheddar and pepper jack that I already had on hand, placed sandwiches back in oven on low broil til cheese melted. .. will make again.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
As with many other reviewers, I used a lot of the family favorite veggies. I mixed the cornstarch as to the directions, but did not add veggies to the mix as the recipe had stated, instead I waited and put the cornstarch mixture in with the soy sauce and water. Served over brown rice .. plan on making again, but think I will use some of the soy sauce and or water to dissolve the cornstarch and cook garlic in with rest of veggies ..

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Made this dish for dinner last night and it was a HIT. As with many others, I used a 16 oz bag of frozen shrimp ( that I had on hand ) which was plenty for a family of 4, ( although I should mention that my youngest is not a seafood lover and had a grilled cheese sandwich instead ) and left out the parsley, I also thought that 15 - 20 min was bit long for cooking shrimp, so I left it in oven for only 7 -8 min. My husband detected somthing in the sauce, but had no idea it was the dijon mustard. Served with whole wheat linguine noodles, lightly browned buttered french bread and steamed broccoli, hubby took leftovers for lunch the next day.. this is a keeper.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Loved this dish and will make again .. a definite keep for our meatless Monday meals. As with all the others, I salted the eggplant and let it set for a good 30 min then rinsed in cold water and dried before coating in the egg and bread crumbs .. as for the bread crumbs themselves I didn't have any on hand so I made my own with saltine and ritz crackers and seasoned with garlic salt, onion salt, dried basil and oregano. I also made my own sauce with 2 cans of tomato sauce, one can of tomato paste and the same herbs and seasonings I used in the bread crumbs. I let the dish set for a few min before serving. Steamed broccoli and garlic toast were served on the side

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This was perfect for a cold evening meal. I made this soup on Halloween night not only because of our long going family tradition of " Meatless Monday" but I needed something quick before sending my little monster out to trick or treat. I used fresh bell peppers and onions rather then the frozen that was recommended and some finely chopped garlic. I didn't have any vegetable broth on hand, but I did have vegetable bullion cubes that I dissolved in hot water and I used one 7oz can of the green chilies instead of the 3- 4oz cans in the recipe. Rather then using store bought chips, I had some tortillas on hand, cut them into strips and fried in canola oil serving them on the side with the diced avocado and some sour cream. Plan on making again in the future, but with other changes, such as canned veggie broth or homemade and will puree some of the soup to make slightly thicker

Tater Tot Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
Like others I have also prepared this dish in the past but a different recipe. I made the following changes that many readers will find was identical to other subscribers, and some that were not. When browning the ground beef with the onion, I also added finely chopped garlic, and some seasonings ( Emeril Lagasse Essance : you can find this recipe online and you will find that those herbs and spices that are in the essance are ones that you will used quite often in your own kiichen. They also sell this premade in stores, but I prefer to make my own because I feel I have more control over just how much sodium to add and it's cheaper to make a larger batch then one small jar ). I combined the soup and milk into a measuring cup with a few drops of hot sauce for added flavor, then added to the ground beef once browned. 1 can of whole kernal corn and shredded sharp cheddar cheese was stirred into the mixture, then placed into the baking dish. I topped evenly with the frozen tater tots and the rest of cheese then baked for over 45 min in a 375 degree oven .. served with side salad .. was delicious will make again

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Made this dish for dinner tonight and it appears to be a hit .. instead of using the combination of spices listed I noticed that they were similar to Emerils Essance recipe .. I sliced the the chicken breast in half lengh wise, seasoned with the essence and pan fried in the olive oil and butter. Rather then using garlic powder in the sauce, I used chopped fresh garlic which I feel brought out more flavor .. served with couscous and a veg .. will make again

Mongolian Beef II

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I had a different Mongolian beef recipe in my box, but my thought was that I had always assumed that this dish was supposed to be spicy. The other dish listed nothing of the kind, so I found this one and have to say it was delicious .. rather then serving with noodles I served with brown rice .. will definitely make again
