Red Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
This is exactly the same salad I have always coveted at the local country club. Now I know how to make it. I'm a little bothered by the idea of adding sugar to a salad, but it tastes good, and it's a heaping serving of veggies, so I can live with it. The club sometimes uses raisins instead of grapes which is also really good. I used regular bacon and it was delicious.

Brazilian White Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
A new staple in my kitchen. Subtle yet tasty. It goes with a variety of entrees which makes it one of the more versatile starches.

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
Excellent. A massive pot of soup. My kids and guest devoured it with a crusty Tuscan Boule loaf. I don't think the average palate could determine that the base was not entirely home made. That makes it a worthy addition to any recipe box.

Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
Fantastic. I won't entirely give up on making my own base from scratch because I don't like to waste left over roast chicken, but this is certainly a delicious time saver. It makes homemade soup a lot more convenient which means we'll have it more often.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
I was skeptical, but I watched the video and thought it looked good. My chicken looked pale and corpse-like, and extremely unappetizing. No one wanted to eat it once they got a good look at it. I had to make a different meal and save the meat for something else. Perhaps there is no substitute for roasting a chicken in the oven. Especially for a family like mine that fights over crispy skin.

Pomegranate Stew with Chicken (Khoresh Fesenjan)

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
Delicious. My children and husband loved it. It could not have been easier. I used a hand blender to puree the nuts which left a few larger pieces, but when the stew was done I used the hand blender directly in the pot, and it worked perfectly. I let my walnuts get a bit too brown which made the dish a darker color, but it tasted divine. This will definitely be in the rotation. I served it with rice (I like the Brazilian white rice recipe on this site).

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
Delicious and easy. I used milk and did not add the optional vanilla and sugar (it was sweet enough without). I used a hand blender in a large measuring cup, so clean up was a snap. This kept me going all morning.

Brenda's Apple and Pomegranate Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Fantastic. I used a store-bought pie crust for the bottom (in a pie dish) and followed the rest of the recipe exactly. It was delicious. The seeds were not crunchy. Everyone from the grandparents to the little children loved it. It was also lovely looking. I will upload a pic. Highly recommend. Especially since poms are at their peak right now!
