Garlicky Summer Squash and Fresh Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This was yummy. I followed the directions with just a few changes. I too subbed fresh basil/oregano at the end for parsley just for a little kick. And added fresh diced tomatoes. I added the butter and the tomatoes at the end, and then put it in a covered dish and let the butter melt on the way to the party, and the tomatoes just warmed, which was perfect. Good flavors here, and colorful to boot.

Kae's Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
My hubby's comment was, "WOW! If chicken pot pie always tasted like this I wouldn't dread it being on the menu! I'd look forward to it!" Guess this is my new go-to pot-pie recipe. I did everything the same except I used chicken instead of turkey and I added a generous handful of frozen pearl onions. YUM! I want to make it again this week!

Texas Caviar with Avocado

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
So easy that when I was done making it I was disappointed, sure it couldn't live up to the rave reviews. Never happier to be so wrong! This was delicious! I'm not a fan of jalepeno or avocado, but even I couldn't stop eating it! I served it Bruchetta-style, and that worked well. Next time I'll do tortilla chips.

Margarita Chicken II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
This was super easy, delicious, and looked great on the plate. And it's healthy to boot! We'll definitely be making this again.

Charlotte's Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
I've been making this recipe for so long and I love it. My only complaint is that the tortellini do absorb too much of the broth. It never occured to me to cook them separately and add them to the bowls. Great tip!

Cabbage Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Made it exactly as is. So very good. Even hubby loved it and he's not a fan of cabbage. The barley totally makes this recipe great, so don't skip it. After we'd all eaten, there wasn't much broth left, so we added more for leftovers the next day. I agree with a previous reviewer that serving it over pasta is unnecessary.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
EASY and fabulous! Served this with a Zuppa Toscana recipe and a goat cheese appetizer. It was delicious. And I couldn't believe how easy it was. We didn't do the mozza step - just put a bowl out and let people spoon it over their bread. We used a homemade pesto bread instead of the baguette. Completely terrific.

Light Cream of Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
This soup is fabulous and couldn't be any easier. Healthy to boot! Eating this, hubby said "Cooknik is a good thing in our lives." My 2 year old is a picky eater, but I managed to get this into her by making it the sauce on her pizza. I modified the mozzarella bread. First I mixed 3 cloves of diced garlic with softened butter, then spread that onto the bread. Covered with the mozzarella cheese and very thin sliced tomatoes and a sprinkle of black pepper.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ricotta Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
WOW! What a standout recipe. I made this for dinner Friday night, and it was so good that I changed my dinner party menu for the next might just so I could include this dish. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I sauteed the sage with the shallots. Even my husband who doesn't like sweet potatoes ate them (though admittedly, he's not raving the way I am, but he liked them well enough). Really terrific.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
Excellent soup. DH forgot to add the carrots, but it was fine without. Next time I may pre-cook some tortellini or orzo and add it to the pot for a variation, but it was quite good as it was.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Didn't change a thing, and they were perfect! I read the reviews, but didn't note any bitterness associated with the cream of tartar.

Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
This was SUPER easy, and really yummy. I made it with leftover turkey meat, and even my 4yo who deplores casseroles gobbled it right up.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
This is delicious. I made it exactly as the recipe said. My notes now that I've vetted the original recipe: 1) The potatoes did not cook in 30 minutes (which I should have known, but was trying to trust), so in future, I'll know that it will take longer, or I'll nuke them a bit before adding them to the soup. 2) I had to add far more flour than the recipe called for to thicken the soup. I lots track, and just kept adding in small batches until the soup thickened properly. All that aside, this soup was restaurant quality. Really fantastic, and I'm planning to make a bunch and freeze, and also to serve a large gathering with this soup soon. :)

Artichoke and Chickpea Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Really delicious soup. And wonderful to have something different. I added a pound of crumbled ground chicken (ground lamb would also be a nice addition, if you like lamb), a 4oz can of sliced black olives, and then served with feta on top. Really dynamic flavors here. This will become a staple in out house. :)

Chicken Marsala Florentine

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
FANTASTIC. Going in my file of recipes that I always fall back on! I was skeptical because of the few naysayers among the reviewers, but I'm so glad I made this. I reminds me in flavor of Chicken Madiera from Cheesecake Factory. My alterations: used margarine instead of butter and only used 1/2 a stick. Added five gloves of minced garlic and 1.5c chicken broth to the sauce. Increased marsala to 2c. Used one entire jar of sundried tomatoes, drained and chopped. Added 3c fresh spinach when I was ready to serve and covered for 1-2 minutes to wilt. Served with cream cheese mashed potatoes and had enough sauce to use as a gravy for them. YUM! Those who say this mean is brown are definitely cooking everything too long. This was bright green and red colorful on my plate. And scrumptious besides!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
I scaled this recipe to serve 4, added three bullion cubes (just sitting on top of the roast). Put baby carrots and fresh green beans in the bottom of the pot with the roast on top. It was soooo good. My sister served me pot roast the first day I came home from the hospital years ago after giving birth. If you've ever given birth, you know that food eaten immediately after is the best food EVER. I've tried to make a pot roast live up to that meal ever since and never have. Finally, this recipe did it. YUM!

Coconut Pumpkin Nut Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
I made this with 2c fresh pumpkin puree. It is just fabulous! I made some with walnuts and some without, and I preferred without, but I'm not a big fan of nuts to begin with.

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
Served this at a dinner party as the starter. Everyone raved so much I was nervous the rest of the meal wouldn't live up to it's standard. I put a scoop of nutmeg into a tea diffuser and set this in a small bowl so people could sprinkle nutmeg over their bowl. That went well.

Gary's Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2002
I just love recipes that I can throw together using ingredients I already have available; that much better when the food tastes so good that everyone wants the recipe. This is one of those recipes. I eliminated the crabmeat since I had none on hand and J_TATUM and LOTHRID both said this did not hamper the success of the recipe. I used one and a half sticks of butter during step five, and a half stick during the preparation of the boxed stuffing, bringing the total butter usage to 1 cup. This was in response to the postings which said too watery or too much butter. It worked fabulously. Served these at a dinner party with much success.
