Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
Terrific! My hubby is burnt out on green beans, but he really liked these! I only had cut frozen beans, so I just used all of the ingredients in a saute pan. I am looking forward to making them when I can make them into bundles as the recipe calls for. Thank you for the recipe, Virginia! Now I can eat green beans for dinner again without making a separate side dish for hubby!

Dawn's Kale Side Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
YUM! This is really good! I did add a tiny splash of white wine (less than 1/4 cup), a sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese on top and toasted pecans in lieu of cashews (out of stock). Fantastic! Even our one family member who usually would not even consider this as edible food liked it, and the rest of us loved it! I am anxious to try it with cashews as written! Thank you for the recipe, Dawn!

Home-Style Brown Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Wonderful! I always have trouble with brown rice, so I followed the cooking directions on the rice package, boiling 2 1/2 cups of whole long grain brown rice in 10 cups of water for 30 minutes. Then I drained the rice, returned to the pan and kept the lid on to steam while I followed the rest of the directions for this recipe (except no chickpeas or cashews - I didn't have any). I estimated how much rice to add to the veggies since I had more cooked rice than the recipe calls for. WOW! My family loved this! I served this with baked pork chops and steamed broccoli. I am looked forward to playing with this recipe as jen suggested. Thank you, jen for this terrific recipe!

Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
This recipe is a keeper for sure! I didn't have Yukon Gold potatoes, so I used russets. The pan was so full, I could not easily access the drippings for basting, so I drizzled a tiny bit of melted butter over the top a couple of times during cooking. My family really liked this! (I did not use the syrup, knowing that my DH would not like the sweetness.) Thank you, Debi for this simple and delicious recipe!

Pork and Shrimp Pancit

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Wonderful! I have never used rice noodles, so I did not know which ones to buy. I got the very thin ones, similar in diameter to angel hair pasta. After soaking them they turned into a gummy mess while cooking. I thought dinner was ruined, but I put them in a casserole dish and proceeded with the recipe anyway. I did add snow peas and matchstick carrots, and I doubled the oyster sauce and broth. Despite the noodle problem, this was absolutely delicious! My husband had 3 servings. THREE! I will be making this again for sure. Thank you for the recipe!!

Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I thought this was very good. Apparently my family does not care for cheese fondue, so I had most of the batch leftover. I layered peeled sliced potatoes, onions, chopped leftover ham, 1/2 of the leftover fondue, repeated the layering and baked for about an hour at 350 degrees. It was terrific!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
These are FANTASTIC! When I make them for a crowd, I (at least) triple the batch. To speed up the assembly process, I start with a cookie sheet filled with brown sugar. Then I toss the bacon pieces in the sugar, and press sugar into the bacon as I roll it around the smokie in order to get as much sugar adhesion as possible! (I tried thick cut bacon once, but it didn't work out very well.)

Frijoles II

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Thanks for the great recipe, Brandi! For those who said the beans never softened...if the dried beans are old, they WILL NOT soften. I had 2 bags of beans that had been forgotten in the pantry for a long time. I tried cooking them in a crock pot after soaking overnight, but they never softened. After 18 hours in the crock pot, I gave up and threw them out. I usually use salt pork instead of bacon when cooking my beans. I freeze bacon drippings in 1 tablespoon batches all the time and if I don't have salt pork or bacon, I use the frozen bacon drippings for seasoning. I also add Cumin when cooking my beans. I have read that you should wait until the last minute to add salt, because if you add salt early in the cooking process, the skins of the beans can be tough. :-)

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
Yum! My family and I loved this! As one reviewer suggested, I used 2 T soy sauce + 1T balsamic vinegar, and 1/4 c butter + 1/4 c olive oil. I only needed to cook 3 boneless chicken breasts, so I mixed the leftover marinade mixture with some cream cheese and used it on cracked pepper crackers to munch on while the chicken was cooking. Yum! This is a keeper for sure! Thank you to the author for sharing!
