Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Can't believe alfredo sauce is this easy! I won't be buying it in a jar again. Tasted great and was super easy. I used 1 cup each of parmesan and half and half and a tbsp of butter and cornstarch. No need to make a roux or anything, with some heat, stirring, and a quarter of an hour gone, it was soon being scarfed down by husband. Thanks!

Texas Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Very good. The first time I made this, I only had one can of black beans and one can of kidney beans on hand. Needless to say, that's the way I make it now. It's almost like a chili. I serve it with tortilla chips, sour cream and shredded cheese and it's amazing. I use regular corn, vegetable broth, and a can of rotel instead of regular diced tomatoes. I also use the green chiles depending on my mood--in other words, they taste of the soup is not contingent on them. We also add ground beef, but both my meatloving husband and my picky, vegetarian sister concur that it's delicious without it. Easy and cheap! Love this recipe.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This one's on my rotation. I crave it, even. It's taken me some finagling to get it just the way I like it, though. I double bread them--barely brown once after dipped, dip again and brown slow to just-crispiness. I use flour, garlic salt, pepper and some chili powder. Then I top them with stuffing and pour the mixture of one can cream of mushroom, another can cream of golden mushroom, and some white wine or white wine vinegar and a tsp of ground mustard. gives it its own unique, addicting zing. not too hard to make or on the budget at all. i always make it with mashed potatoes loaded up with cream cheese, sour cream, butter and milk. this combo is usually my stand-in when i want something dense and luscious. :)

Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
So, so, so good. I stay close to the original recipe, except that I, like many other reviewers, use apple juice instead of water. I also add a tablespoon of maple syrup and a cup of cinnamon apple sauce to the mixture and add a layer of apple sauce to the bottom of the dish. I saute the onion and apples in butter with a dash of cinnamon and then brown the chops in the leftovers. I sprinkle salt and apple cider vinegar on top of them in the pan, and then I just sit them in the pan, spoon out the thickest part of the mix on to the chops, pour the rest in, and sit the onions and apples on top and let it cook for 45 minutes. I usually don't have a problem with the apples searing or charring in the oven. They come out neither too mushy nor too crisp; my husband raved about this meal and he can't stand mushy food. I was worried that it would be too sweet for dinner, or that it would be time consuming, but tis neither. It's become one of our favorite meals. Festive, too!

Skillet Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I was excited for this dish and still don't want to give it a bad review. But it was just a mushy, disaster. I feel like I've wasted so much food. I thought it would be an unusual comfort food staple, but it wasn't even edible. Next time, like other reviewers mentioned, I will not add breadcrumbs or cheese, and I won't put the lid on the pan. In fact, it won't be this recipe at all. Great idea though!

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
An excellent and very easy tuna casserole recipe that I will be using as my stock recipe from now on. If there are others like me who like reading the modifications, and if the author is interested, I basically doubled the recipe and compensated by using both cream of chicken and cream of mushroom and a made a cheese layer on top.
