Chef John's Creamy Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2014
This has become a staple in my household. Absolutely fantastic. I used baby bella mushrooms from Costco and sliced them in my food processor in a couple of minutes and then chopped the onion in the food processor. That way the whole prep only took a few minutes. Mine browned nicely within 15 minutes. They still had some juice in the pot but I went on to the next step and feel that it does not make much difference. I used 1% milk instead of cream and processed the soup in my vitamix which made it super creamy. I always eat some the next day as left over and it still tastes great. Only minor thing I don't like is the color but for home made super delicious soup that's easy to make it's well worth it.

Kale, Quinoa, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
Delicious! I did not change any of the ingredients, just the amounts of the veggies since I did not want left-over cucumber or red pepper. I used the whole one. Next time I will make the Quinoa a bit more ahead of time so it will have more time to cool (I put it in the fridge to cool but got impatient and mixed it in with the other ingredients while still warm. No harm done.) The dressing is awesome! Definitely a keeper.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
This was my first time making pancakes using this recipe but it won't be my last. Both my husband and I loved them. Fluffy, not heavy, nice taste. Used apple cider vinegar instead of white, not sure if it makes a difference since you can't taste the vinegarin the finished product. Excellent! This made enough for two people with a good appetite. For a family of four I would definitely double the recipe.

Tomato Bisque II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
Very delicious and easy to make! I made it with 1% milk and chickenbroth and it was still very creamy and yummy. I have a good food mill and milling the fresh tomatoes was no problem. Will definitely safe this recipe and make often

Easter Grass Slaw

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Just made this for a potluck tomorrow. This is so good I hope I don't eat it all before then! Highly recommended. (did not have a yellow pepper or green onion but it is still really good) I think the apple gives it a lot of flavor. Yumm!!

Old-Fashioned Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Excellent soup and sooo easy. I used red potatoes which have the advantage of just having to be scrubbed instead of peeled which saved a lot of time. I used Knoor vegetable bouillon granules which have a lot of flavor. I did not have any dried thyme, so I just omitted it but used fresh parsely. I used some of the cookingwater/broth to add to the flour paste (it didn't specify but otherwise the soup would have been too thick for my taste). At the end I mashed the potatoes inside the pot and it turned out like a chowder. Very yummy. Will definitely make again especially since it was quick and easy.

Tuna Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
This was sooo quick and easy. It took only 10 min. (max.) prep time. I did not have egg noodles, so I broke some lasagne noodles in pieces before cooking them in salt water like I would have the egg noodles. It turned out really good! I also did not have cheddar but used slices of american cheese. My teenage son had a huge portion and I couldn't stop eating it either. Great stand-by recipe when there isn't much time to get dinner ready.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
The best chili I've ever had! I had homemade tomatosauce on hand (made from crushed tomatoes) so it had lots of garlic which I think added to the taste. I only had 30 ounces, so I also added some beefbroth and 2 cans of diced tomatoes (no tomato juice at all). Everything else stayed the same as the original recipe. I'm glad I used only 1/8 tsp of Cayenne as written since that was just enough spice for me. Anything more would have been too much. Can hardly wait for the leftover tomorrow.

Bangin' Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Yery yummy and easy. Like another reviewer I cut the amount of butter in half and substituted with applesauce (1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup applesauce). I also added semi-sweet chocolate chips and used walnuts instead of macademia. Mine took the whole 60 min. to bake, I guess ovens differ, so check after 50 min. It took 5 big bananas, so make sure you have enough before starting. My husband and his friend also thought it was great.

Cheater Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Didn't feel like going to the store to get syrup on a rainy Sunday morning and made this one instead. Did not have maple exctract but it was still very good. My husband and son loved it as they have a sweet tooth. It was a bit sweet for me but still very good. Easy, fast and less expensive than store bought. Addendum 1/19. I am storing it in the fridge in a glass jar with lid and so far it has not crystallized.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
My husband said that this was the best chicken I've ever made. I agree. We all had seconds. It had a teriyaki kind of flavor. I reduced the olive oil by half according to most reviews and think I could have reduced it even more (I did remove as much skin from the chicken as possible). Watch the cooking time! I had a 5 pd. chicken (adjusted the ingredients for 10 servings) which was partially immersed in the sauce and it was done after 4 hours. I found sesame oil at Fresh and Easy for only $2.99! Will definitely make again.

Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
WOW! This soup is sooo good. I forgot to add the thyme but it is still awesome. I added some frozen peas at the end, parsely and cooked noodles (I cooked the noodles separately and combined them with the soup as needed for leftovers. This way they won't get too soft. I like my noodles al dente). Definitely will make over and over.

Baked Pasta Primavera Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Very easy to make. The vegetables were a bit too crunchy for me even though they were defrosted. I would add a bit more flavoring e.g. garlic or salt and I cooked the pasta very al dente so it wouldn't get too soft in the casserole. My husband really liked it and I will probably make it again. It was very good but not outstanding.

Chicken and Fresh Tomato Slow Cooker Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This was very easy and tasty. I did not have tomato sauce on hand so I substituted with a can of crushed tomatoes which made it very soupy. I probably should have added some tomato paste to thicken it. I cooked some brown rice with it which was very good. I will definitely make this again.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
WOW, most awesome asparagus. My teenager and my husband loved it, too. I did not change a thing, except browned the butter a bit like suggested. Very very good and easy.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly (did not have much time) and it turned out to be the best beef stew I ever had! Sooo easy and with lots of gravy. I had read somewhere that recipes turn out better in the slow-cooker if you brown the beef first but I think in this case it is not necessary. Definitely a favorite!
