Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
I made this soup last night. My family couldn't stop raving about how good it tasted. I did do some changes after reading some of the reviews. I made the thickening mixture and added it to the pot at the end. I used creamer rather than the light cream. In addition to the cheddar cheese, I added 4-5 ounces of velveta cheese. Also, I added the garlic powder, chopped onions and cut back the butter to about half. Instead of using fresh broccoli, I only had frozen (thawed). Still turned out great.I added the broccoli for the last 5 minutes to prevent it from over cooking. Between bites, I asked my family if I should perhaps try adding potato chunks next time.......My husband told me not to mess with how I made it. He is quite a cook himself, so that was a compliment! The broth was a bit thin at first,and I had hoped there would be some left over to see if it would get thicker the next day.....but no such luck! I would highly recommend this one! One note.......I think it might be good served in a bread bowl!

Penne with Pancetta, Tuna, and White Wine

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
I enjoyed this, but would suggest using chicken or steak rather than tuna. I might try using other vegetables rather than peas for a change of flavor. It was a bit dry for our taste. I suggest using some chicken, beef or vegetable broth to the mixture.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2004
We LOVED this soup...even my teenage son said it was a keeper. I made some changes. Instead of canned tomatoes, I used canned tomato sauce. I didn't put any zuccini in it either. During the last 8 minutes or so, I added frozen cheese tortilli vs the fresh tortilli. The leftovers didn't last past the next day.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2004
"WOW! This is REALLY good!" That was the response my 16 year old son gave as he took the first bite of this chicken dish. I have to say, it is soooo easy and delicious, but looks like you've worked more than the 5 minutes it takes to make it. I used the idea of putting the chicken and taco seasonings into a plastic bag to coat the chicken. Much easier and neater. I used Pace medium salsa and pepper jack cheese vs cheddar cheese. I added a little more than the recommended amount of salsa for enough to put it over the white rice. Your choice. I highly recommend this one to everyone!

Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2001
I decided to make this for the teachers' lounge at the school where I work. The container was half gone before I got to the lounge! Next time I'll have to make a double batch! I had several requests for the recipe. I'll make this one many more times! YUMMY! I'd rate this a 10+

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2001
I needed someing "different" for a school gathering. I found this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. Boy! Was it a BIG hit! I have had several requests for the recipe, but I think I will need more printer paper for the next time I make these to fill the requests I know I'll receive!
