Springfield Style Cashew Chicken II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Great recipe! I do have to make one very important suggestion. The sauce seemed to be lacking an important flavor...SESAME OIL! A little drizzle stirred in at the end really made it authentic "Springfield Style". Honestly, it wouldn't have been the same without it. Oh, and I garnished w/ green onion. I'll definitely be making this again...the whole family loved it!

Aw-some Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I too skipped the onion since the hubby doesn't like it. Hands down, the best creamy slaw recipe I've ever made! Thank you!

Squash, Egg, and Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
This is VERY similar to the casserole I came up w/ only I didn't write down the measurements so I'm glad to see this one for next time. I opted to use a little more squash (5 small ones) and add a buttery bread crumb topping. My kiddos and hubby really liked it!I think adding finely diced green pepper would be good too. I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning and it was wonderful! If you add ham, it could make a great brunch dish! Thanks for posting!!

Zucchini Pineapple Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Perfection! When trying out a new recipe, I try to make it exactly as written and make changes the next time. It's great as a breakfast bread (although for my kids, I think I'll use wheat flour and less sugar), or can be made as is for a snack of dessert bread...although as suggested a cinnamon and sugar dusting would be great. I'll be making this bread again tomorrow and using the recipe as listed since the bread is for friends and it's perfect as is...moist and full of flavor.

Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
The only changes I made was that I used a bag of thawed and drained mixed berries (blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries) and also used fresh blackberries as well. This recipe is super easy and my guests loved it! Best served warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream. Next time I'm going to try fresh peaches and blueberries just for something different!

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
I followed the dressing recipe exactly but just added garlic powder and paprika. I used different vegetables since we aren't huge fans of the ones listed. I used garden tomato, sliced black olives, and green onion. I also added 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped. When serving, I add chopped up hard salami and a little bit of fresh dill to make a complete lunch and the kids loved it! As recommended by others, over-night refridgeration is a must and it really does cut down the sweetness, making it a perfect macaroni salad...and I usually don't even like macaroni salad! Thank you for an easy, cheap, and yummy summer dish!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
I just used this recipe this morning for our special Valentine's Day breakfast. The only change I made was to add a little vanilla extract. This recipe is just perfect on it's own and the pancakes are restaurant perfect! To make them extra special I used mini-chocolate chips and added a few drops of red food coloring to make the batter pink, then before serving I used a large heart cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes. We used whipped cream and pink and red sprinkles on top and the kids LOVED them! The pancakes were sweet enough for a dessert...but hey, it's Valentine's Day! Thank you so much, I can't wait to wow my family again with this recipe!

Southwestern Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
I just made this tonight and I thought it was very good, especially for a one pan meal under 30 minutes. There is no reason to ever buy Hamburger Helper when you have recipes like this on hand! I of course made a few changes to fit our lifestyle and it still turned out great! I used ground venison (deer) and browned it in minced garlic. I also added a half a can of chili beans and therefore omitted the chili powder. Also, I used whole wheat spaghetti noodles for added fiber...I just had to cook the noodles a little longer of course. Since mozzerella has less cholesterol, that's what I used, I can imagine that cheddar would be even better! This recipe would be yummy on it's own but is also a great template recipe to use for items already in the fridge! Thanks!

Cake Mix Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
It doesnt get any easier than this unless you are buying pre-packaged! I used a box of devil's food cake mix and rolled the dough into balls and coated them in powdered sugar for a crinkly effect like another reveiwer suggested and they were perfect! I also added 2 Tbls. water like suggested. They were done in exactly 8 minutes! I can't wait to try more variations! Perfect cookies for giving away during the Christmas season due to the low cost and ease! Next, I'm trying the chocolate cake mix with Andes peppermint crunch baking chips!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
What a wonderful soup/stew! Hearty and satisfying without the a lot of fat! I used this recipe for some leftover ham I had and my family loved it. The only changes I made were to add some garlic powder and diced carrots and I also omitted the celery (husband hates it) and butter (less fat). Also, I made this is the crock pot and just had to stir it a few times since it has milk in it (keeps curdling down). This recipe will go in my "lovely leftovers" section in my cookbook...thank you!

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
This is a great ground beef meal; which I'm always looking for new ones! I of course made a few changes or else I don't think there would have been enough flavor for our taste (that's just how I roll). The biggest difference in how I prepared it is that I used a pound of ground beef/deer that was pre-cooked (I pre-cook about 6 lbs of it at a time, portion it and freeze it to save time). I would think that preparing it raw like a meat loaf would leave a lot of grease behind, but maybe that's just me. I added minced garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper and Italian herbs to the mixture. I omitted the sausage since I didn't have any on hand and honestly, there wouldn't have been room for it in the "boats". I also omitted the onions since my husband doesn't like them. I also added a pinch of sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian herbs to the tomato sauce and next time to save me time I'll just use jar speghetti sauce which will probably taste better anyways. I also added a ridiculous amount of mozzerella cheese 30 minutes into baking and baked it until bubbly (about 10-15 min. more). This is a fantastic way to use up zucchini when you have an overabundance of it in the garden! Thank you!

Santa Fe Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Simple, cheap, and yummy! I used only 1 can of beans since I'm nursing and I used some taco seasoning in the meat and omitted the onions. Also, I used Mexican style corn as others have used. We had it as a soup for dinner with crushed up blue corn tortilla chips and sour cream on top. For lunch the next day (this recipe makes a lot) we had it as a dip. Also, I made it for my sister as a freezer meal and used a heavy duty zip-loc and it froze beautifully and she said it tasted great!

Beef Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
I was so surprised that ground beef could be so good in fried rice! I only changed a few things: I used 5 Tbls. soy sauce and I mixed the soy sauce and sugar in a seperate little dish before adding, I omitted the onion and used minced garlic with the ground beef. I had some leftover white rice and just used this recipe again with mushrooms instead of meat for a quick lunch. YUM! I think any meat would work well. NOTE** I think it's very important to know that fried rice works best if you use room temp. rice. Hot rice will only clump together and make a mushy mess. Also, if you omit the oil, then it's just not FRIED rice. The oil that coats each grain keeps the grains from sticking together, otherwise, you would have sticky rice.

Kielbasa Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
I, like most cooks, tweeked it a bit to make it healthier and seasoned to our taste. Instead of ziti, I used whole wheat rotini and nixed the stewed tomatoes since my husband doesnt care for them, although they would have been great I'm sure. Instead I used a whole jar of speghetti sauce. I used turkey brats spiced up with crushed red pepper to make it a bit leaner and it was great! I sauteed some zucchini with the turkey brats (I added the zucchini when brats were half way done) with a bit a EVOO and fresh garlic. I also added some sweet basil with the oregano. After I mixed the meat/veggie sauce with the pasta, I stired in some parmesan cheese. I also used more monterey jack and mozzerella cheese because, well, we just love cheese. I think some sauteed onion would have put it over the top... but the husband doesnt like them :/ I think that this recipe would be delicious on it's own but it works as a great template to whatever you have in the kitchen.

Creamy Bratwurst Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I have used this recipe about a dozen times now and it is always wonderful. Honestly, I have never experienced a grainy texture like another review said. I will say that the type of brats you use do make a bit of a difference. Johnsonville or the grocer's butcher brats always work well. The "off brand" just don't taste the same. I have had many friends ask me for the recipe and people are always so surprised at how good it is. Definitely give this one a try!
