Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I don't like potato salad and my son doesn't even like potatoes so I just whipped up a batch for my husband... DELICIOUS! Even DS loved it. DH went to work and boasted about it and commited me to making three more batches for his parents and some clients. I had to make another batch as soon as the first one was gone, which was no time at all. Both times I made this, I used less mayo and the second time around, I added small cubes of cheddar cheese which I think did actually make it a little better. So good! Will never, ever need another potato salad recipe.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
I'm pregnant and working and I've been looking for something nutritious that I can make on the weekend and take throughout the week for my lunches. This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. This is delicious and I love how healthy it is. I recommend only using one can of beans. After making it originally, I added an additional cup of quinoa cooked in just water because the beans were too overpowering. Also, I didn't have the spices listed so I've been adding sriracha to taste. For anyone interested in tampering a bit and trying something new, I highly recommend adding avocado, salsa, and some pepper jack cheese and using it as a dip for chips. Amazing!

Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
This recipe is SO good, even my 7 year old loves it. I made a few changes after reading others' advice. I ditched the milk and used chicken broth instead of water. I also doubled the recipe, but had to cook it 9 hours on high to get the right consistency. The only thing I wish I'd done differently is to either have used 1/2 chicken broth & 1/2 water or to ditch the additional salt as it turned out too salty for my preference. Still really yummy!

Mom's Sushi Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
Sushi is my absolute favorite thing in the world! Before, I only was able to enjoy it on special occasions, but with this recipe, now I make it every Saturday. I was amazed at how good this tasted, by itself or in a sushi roll. Delicious. I add toasted sesame seeds and have never used kelp and it's perfect. My sushi fanatic friends loved it as well and were really surprised at how well it turned out. I use imitation crab, nori, cucumber, sriracha sauce, and avocado to make the PERFECT sushi the serve it with soy sauce and wasabi. So good!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I'm reviewing this as a diet soup. As a basic vegetable soup, it's still really good, at least 3.5 stars. I made this soup as stated and divided it up into 10 big tupperware's. This has been my lunch for the last 10 days and that's the only real change I've made to my diet. After 10 days, I've already lost 5 lbs, no exercise or anything else and (the best part) I still think it's good. Normally after eating the same thing over and over, you get sick of it, but this is really tasty and I get stuffed. Really good!

Sushi Roll

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
I wish there were more stars. Sushi is my absolute favorite thing in the whole world. We spend $50.00 for my husband and I each time we go out... or at least we used to. This recipe is seriously just as good as the pricey restaurants and SOOO much cheaper. I made 10 servings of this and fed 4 people till we were all stuffed for $8.00: 1/2 pack Nori $1.00 1/4 5lb bag rice $1.75 1/2 cup sugar $0.40 1/2 cup Rice vinegar $0.80 1 Avocados $1.00 1/2 Cucumber $0.50 1/4 pkg Cream Cheese $0.57 1/4 Lbs Imitation Crab $0.75 1/4 lb Shrimp $1.00 (We don't care for ginger) I got the rice and nori at a local Asian market and the rest at Winco which kept the prices low. You'll need the bamboo mat which is also available at any Asian market and many other stores. Also, soy sauce, sriracha sauce, and wasabi are a must. I put all of the ingredients out buffet style and we just picked out our fillings and had fun sampling the different rolls. I included jalapenos and made a spicy mayo to mix with the crab for a few rolls. I took a roll to work for my boss who also loves sushi and she commented all day about how great it was. I even made a vegi roll for my pregnant friend and she loved it to. I definitely recommend doing a google search and watching a few videos on sushi rolling and making the perfect rice. The rolling is easier than it looks, but making the rice right is the challenge. Have fun and enjoy! I know we will.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I've been making this recipe at least twice a week for over a year. My menu changes regularly as I love to experiment with new foods, but this is one thing my family just won't do without. It is our absolute favorite meal. My husband has had me make it for ALL of his friends and family and I've gotten major good wiffey points. I've tweaked it a little over time to make it cheaper and easier, but it's still just as amazing. I use Franks Red Hot (not the buffalo sauce, but the hot sauce) and I use about 1/3 bottle - 1/2 bottle. This way the chicken isn't so saucy, it makes the bread to soggy to eat. Also, I serve it on hamburger buns, or preferably onion buns. And if you don't have a slow cooker, no problem. Cook the chicken separately, however you prefer, shred it in a pan and add ingredients (I use ranch straight from the bottle, cheaper than the powder). Throw the buns in a warm oven just long enough to get crispy and serve.... YUM! I'd rather stay in and eat this than eat out any day, even if it means doing the dishes.

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
Tonight the only thing my 6 year old wanted for dinner was ramen noodles (a rare delicacy to him) so I made him this with a side of ramen. Much to my surprise, the only thing left on his plate at the end of dinner was the ramen. He then proceeded to tell me how "yummy" the chicken was. He's right. It's very yummy... and I love how easy and quick it is to make. Thanks for the recipe!

Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
This meal is AMAZING. It has become our special Sunday meal, our budget and diet splurge. I prefer to double up on the vegies and seasonings, but either way, this is easily our favorite meal. The only bad thing about it is the smell. Sitting in a house filled with this aroma can make you miserably hungry, but it's worth the wait.
