Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I only made a few minor changes starting with cutting the recipes down for only 3 lbs of tomatoes. I used herilooms and a dash of onion powder and NO onions. I hate onions. Everything else I left the same. It was a bit runny after simmering for a couple hours but I think it was partly because of how juicy my tomatoes were and the lack of onion. I don't like chunky sauce so I ran it through the blender for a few seconds just to break those up. This was my first attempt making sauce and I loved it!

Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
This is almost exactly how we make macaroni and cheese except instead of putting tomato juice IN the cheese sauce, we add a little milk and then after it's done baking spoon tomato soup on top! I have NO idea how why we started doing this but I won't make mac and cheese unless there is a can of tomato soup also! And people can say what they want about "processed cheeses" but I prefer it to the oily grainy texture of Cheddar cheese anyday!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
This is a really good recipe! I have made them twice, once with ground beef and once with ground turkey and both worked well for me. I have also used every color BUT green for the peppers (I really just don't like green peppers) and it works in anything! I also don't use the extra sauce on top, I just mixed it all in. I've also never covered these while baking them and I think they turned out just fine. I wouldn't eat stuffed peppers as a kid when my mom would make them for herself and now I know what I've been missing!

I also used fresh green beans, halved. Was surprised something so simple would be so good! A definite keeper!

Stuffed Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
It's a good recipe to start from but you definitely need to add your own "touch" to it. I used Italian bread crumbs and added some thyme, rosemary and Parmesan cheese. I also made my own cream sauce to top them with as I do not like mushrooms and fortunately happened to have some cream left over from something else.
