Panzanella Panini

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
I made this for myself yesterday and it was absolutely fabulous. However, I didn't have a French loaf or Mozzarella cheese. I did have a chabotta roll and some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. It would be great with a nice bowl of soup or even some grilled chicken on the sandwich. I ate it all by itself and just loved it! Thank you for this awesome and very healthy recipe!

Fast and Easy Ricotta Cheese Pizza with Mushrooms, Broccoli, and Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Since I cannot eat broccoli (despite my love for it), I replaced it with sliced onion and bell peppers (green, red and yellow). It made the pizza much more colorful and tasty. This is a fantastic recipe as long as you have a really good pizza crust.

Favorite Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
This was a perfect recipe for homemade peanut butter cookies. Some changes that can be made to it is the use of crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy and I had some extra candy corns from Halloween and I placed one in the center of each cookie prior to baking and the kids absolutely loved them! Another thing for the adults, you can place a pecan half in the center of each cookie as well. A lovely holiday treat, this is!

Frank's Famous Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Wow, if you just add 2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce when you add the meat in and a bay leaf and 1 tbsp. white sugar when you add in the tomato sauce, you have my spaghetti sauce! I use ground beef instead of ground turkey, but I'm sure that the ground turkey is healthier. Also, I'd make sure the olive oil is Extra Virgin as well.

Melody's Spinach & Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
There are so many things you can do to enhance this dish! It has a wonderful taste and goes wonderfully with Blue Cornchips.

Melody's Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
This dish is absolutely wonderful served in a bowl with a spoon of Spanish Rice, a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkling of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and fresh chopped chives.

No Frying Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
This was absolutely perfect! I especially loved the fact that there was no frying involved. No mess and way less fat is always a good thing. The only thing I did differently is that I made my own homemade sauce instead of using jarred or canned. That coupled with the most perfect eggplants made for a delicious supper!

Ragu® No Frying Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
This is a good start, but how can it be called Chicken Parmesan if it doesn't call for Parmesan cheese? I would suggest adding a teaspoon of water to the egg and then beat. The egg will come out fluffier. I would also suggest adding Parmesan cheese to the Italian Seasoned bread crumbs. Also, unless you flatten the breasts with a meat tenderizer, you are going to have to bake them longer than 20 minutes, especially if they're large breasts. Another enhancement I would make would be to use an Olive Oil Fat Free Cooking Spray on the pan before arranging the chicken in it. There is no reason to rush when adding a recipe on here. We should all take the time to make it as detailed as possible.

Simple Cajun Seasoning

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
From a native of New Orleans, this would be perfect if it had garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt and white pepper. Also, replace the oregano with sage. Just a suggestion.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
The only thing that gives this dish any resemblance of a Cajun dish is the two teaspoons of Cajun Seasoning. If you leave that out, this is an Italian dish.

Authentic, No Shortcuts, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
I'd take out the jalapenos and put a bottle of Louisiana hotsause on the table to be used by those who want it hot. Also, I've found that Bay Leaves, instead of Basil makes it all the better. Other than that, it's perfect!

Ann's Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Hallalujah! Somebody that knows how to make dirty rice from scratch without using a dirty rice mix!!! Thank you! I'd add Garlic Powder and Parsley flakes to this recipe to make it a 5 star dish, though.

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
I would replace the butter with olive oil and at the point the potatoes are tossed with the spinach leaves, I would top with Romano, Parmesan or any combination of Italian cheeses.

Melody's Signature Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
The one thing I forgot to mention is that Masa flour can be used to thicken if it is too thin. However, if it is too thick, thin with beef broth for best results. This recipe literally takes three days to make if you make the red beans the first day and enjoy that night, then put up the left overs to use in this recipe. This IS, however, the best chili you will ever eat and well worth the time it takes!

Hamburger Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
Can't seem to bring myself to use chicken broth with beef. Used Beef broth instead, but this recipe is missing a great deal of flavor. Just sayin.

Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2011
what do you do with the shredded cheddar cheese? Eat it while you're cooking? Just kidding, I get that you are supposed to cover it with the cheese before baking. However, 4 cups is an ungodly amount! 2 cups, I've found to be much better. Love this recipe! The only extra thing I added was some chopped chives to the sausage while it was browning. GREAT ADDITION!

Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
I learned how to make this in Home Economics class when I was 12 years old (I'm now 44 going on 45), so I know this is an old recipe, but definitely an old favorite! It's like you just made your own candy! LOVE IT!!!

Classic Goulash

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
This is definitely American style goulash as I remember it as a child. However, we also used Worcestershire sauce instead of Soy, definitely used Green Bell Pepper, and we also added a couple of cans of Veg-All mixed Vegetables to make it a bit heartier. I make this for my son perhaps once a year. Think I'll make it for him this coming week. Great recipe! Thanks!

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
You know what would make this a FIVE STAR recipe? A packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix and some salt, some chopped white, yellow or green onions, and salt and black pepper to taste. Try it! It'll crank this recipe up to TOP NOTCH!
