Kale Chips with Honey

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2015
A very easy and healthy snack especially when made in the dehydrator at suggested temp, lets you keep all the nutrients. Normally I don't care for kale but these are yummy.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2015
My family, full of picky eaters, gobbled this up. I wasn't thrilled with it (not my thing) but I loved how easy it was to make. Will definitely be making it again.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2015
My family liked this stew. I did shake the meat in flour, garlic powder and onion powder before browning as others suggested, and I used beef broth since that's what I had on hand and I cooked it in the crock pot. The meat was so moist and tender and the flavor was good.

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2015
OMG, these were so good. I thought I had totally messed them up because I wasn't sure if I mixed and folded them too much but they turned out perfect. Wonderful flavor, flaky, easy to make and my entire family gobbled them up! Only thing I did different was to add vinegar to milk since I didn't have any buttermilk on hand and I grated the butter as others suggested.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2015
Reading the recipe I thought 1 cup of sour cream for 4 large potatoes seemed like an awful lot and after adding it realized I should have followed that impression. I like the ingredients and the potential for flavor but next time I will use less sour cream and see how it turns out. It was too much even for the 5 large potatoes I made. From trial and error I found that using a knife to cut around the edge of the potato halves made removing the flesh and keeping the skin in tact much easier.

Chicken Chimichangas with Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2015
This meat mixture gets a 5 star rating, it was delicious even my picky eaters loved it. I forgot to read the recipe before starting and boiled the chicken first in just water so I then shredded it and added all the spices and water (reducing to 1 1/2 cups as others had suggested) and followed the directions for the meat mixture from there and it turned out perfect. I also brushed the chimichangas with oil and baked them at 425 for 15 min. and they turned out perfect and much healthier than frying. I didn't try the cream sauce, as I was feeling lazy, just topped with sour cream and salsa. This is a definite keeper and next time I will try it with the sauce.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
First time I made this I followed the recipe exactly. It was ok but I didn't really like the flavor the alfredo sauce (Bertolli) added. Second time I made it I substituted heavy cream for the alfredo sauce and added a couple pinches of salt and my family devoured it, added benefit is that cream is better for you than jarred sauce.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
So yummy. I used fresh rosemary and followed other reviewers advice only adding 2 1/2 tsp of rosemary, it didn't quite give it enough flavor for my liking. Next time I will use the amount called for. I also used spelt flour, because that was all I had. Brushed the top with oil and sprinkled coarse salt on top and baked it on an oiled cookie sheet at 375 for 30 min. My family loved it.

White Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
Quick and easy recipe, a good base. The bullion cube adds a unique flavor but I wanted a little more so I added a clove of garlic, pinch of salt, little basil, used heavy whipping cream instead of milk and black instead of white pepper and poured it over bow tie pasta. My pickiest eater who never asks for seconds on any kind of pasta loved it and had seconds. I added raw diced yellow bell pepper to my individual serving and thought it added a nice flavor. So many possibilities with this recipe.

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
I followed the recipe and wasn't thrilled with the taste. I refrigerated it, then later decided to try to improve it. I added 4 oz cream cheese, more garlic, more parmesan cheese and a squeeze of lemon, baked it again for 15 minutes and it was much better. The cream cheese really added a lot both in taste and texture. My husband and son both loved it. Next time I think I will add another can of artichokes as there wasn't enough for my liking.

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
I followed another reviewers advice and put a thin layer of cheese on the sandwich rolls before adding the zucchini and other ingredients and the bread still turned out soggy around the edges. I added onion and bell pepper to the zucchini. It was good, healthy and my kids ate it but we weren't crazy about it.

Cherry Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
I followed the recipe exactly. I love that it is so simple and no bake. It was a little too rich for my taste. If I were to make it again I would definitely let it set overnight. I let it set 5 hours and it was still too runny, next day it was much better. And I did use sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
I have made this recipe many times and my whole family, including my picky eater, loves it. Wonderful flavor and so much healthier than beef meat loaf. I usually double the paste that goes on top and I have never added the hot pepper sauce because I don't have any and my little ones don't like it. The last time I made it I didn't have any quinoa on hand so I substituted a 1/4 cup oats and ketchup for the tomato paste. I also was in a hurry and didn't sauté the onion, just chopped it up and threw it in and it still turned out great. I do prefer the original recipe though, especially the nutrients and flavor the quinoa adds.

Chilean Empanada

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
I was so excited to find this recipe. I lived in Chile for a year and have been craving empanadas ever since. These weren't as good as those I had in Chile but pretty close. Since other reviewers were saying the dough was too dry I only added 4 1/4 cups flour and used 2 sticks of butter instead of shortening and the dough was not dry at all and was very easy to work with. I put the dough in the fridge while I made the filling then took it out and rolled it.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
I have made chicken noodle soup before but was looking for another recipe so tried this. I followed another reviewers advice and added a whole rotissori chicken and simmered it for 30 min, then removed and added pieces of chicken. I didn't like the oily taste the butter gave to this so I mixed 1/4c water with 1/3c cornstarch and slowly added it to the broth stirring constantly. It reduced the oily taste a bit and gave the soup a nice consistency that reminded me of Chick-fil-A chicken noodle soup. My kids liked it and it does have a good flavor but I think next time I make it I will leave out the butter and see how it turns out.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2013
Yummm! I followed the recipe exactly. I had several zucchini from my garden and the first one I grated seemed rather dry so I used another that was more moist. After adding the zucchini the batter was sticky and gooey. My son stuck his finger in the batter and tasted it and said that's good. These did not turn out cake like at all but very moist and gooey. The only thing I changed was omitting the nuts since I have a child who is allergic and in place of that I followed another reviewer and added 1/2 c chocolate chips. I won't do that next time as these are very rich and chocolaty. This recipe is a keeper. If it weren't for the sugar these would be extremely good for you. My whole family loved them and my older son didn't believe there was zucchini in them.

Summer Snow Cone Syrup

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
I substituted a very small amount of stevia since a little is all you need to sweeten and it made for a delicious snow cone syrup.

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
Family loved it even my kids who won't normally eat spinach ate it. I didn't have all ingredients so had to improvise but look forward to trying it again as written.

Depression Era Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
My family of Picky eaters loved this. I only used 1 can milk as others suggested and put half the soup in the blender. I also added some corn starch to thicken it up a bit. This made alot more than I expected but my family devoured it.
