Corn and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
Very tasty and family approved. Changes to recipe: omitted bacon and lettuce (due to kid's preferences) and used about 1/4 cup red wine vinegar instead of red wine and vinegar salad dressing.

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Very yummy! Our family loved it! I used leftover taco meat already seasoned and topped the stuffed shells with chopped up tomatoes before adding the cheese and chips. I served it on a bed of iceberg lettuce. We would definitely make this again! Next time I'd like to try adding chopped up avocado or guacamole at the end.

Beef Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
5 Stars based on a few modifications: Our family loved this stew!!! I made apple-favored pot roast (a recipe from this site) and used the leftover meat and gravy as a substitute for the meat and broth in this recipe. To the gravy and 2 cups of water, I followed the recommendations to add 1/2 cup of red wine, 2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. I added some dried rosemary to the dumpling recipe. In addition, I substituted frozen corn for the green peppers and mushrooms to make it more 1 year old friendly. She loved it! Absolutely delicious and a great way to use leftovers!

Apple Flavored Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
Excellent recipe!!! This is one of our family's favorites and I love how it makes the whole house smell great all day. I follow the recipe with a few exceptions: I add carrots and celery to the pot roast. Then I make red-skinned mashed potatoes on the side and use the left over liquid from the pot roast to make gravy. Thanks Christine for a wonderful recipe! The leftover meat and gravy (if you have any) is a great substitute for the meat and broth in the Beef Stew and Dumplings recipe from this site. Makes another delicious meal without as much work as starting from scratch.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
One of our family's favorites!!! Even our 1 year old loves it! I always make a huge batch-I use a whole 5 lb. bag of butter potatoes and 2 med. sized leeks. After cooking the leeks in 1 cup of butter, I thicken with ~6 tbsp. flour mixed in ~2 cups of broth . Then I added the rest of the 48 oz. can of chicken broth and potatoes. Once they were soft after simmering a while, I blended with a hand-blender until smooth, mixed in about 2-3 cups of whole milk, and seasoned with salt and pepper. Absolutely delicious every time and great to freeze for later! Thanks so much Julie for the great recipe!
