Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Followed suggestions using 1TBS Sesame oil, 1TBS Soy Sauce and Rice Wine Vinegar instead of white wine vinegar. Only 1TBS of sugar too. Toasted noodles with almonds. Next time don't add sesame seeds til almost the end as they sit on the bottom of the pan and brown faster. Okay overall, but needed more dressing.

Baked Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
Made these for a party and they were good. Didn't have the lime juice, but really look forward to adding that next time. Used olive oil. We don't use a lot of salt in our family, but I did feel the spice mix could have use a little more salt. I was doing a lot of tortillas and ran out of the spice, so the last couple batches had season salt, which was nice too if you are in a hurry or find yourself missing spices. Would be fun to mix it up if you wanted to make them to go with an artichoke dip - try Italian seasonings and some Parmesan cheese! Maybe some middle eastern spices for Hummus!

Sunday Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
We really liked this recipe. My parents thought it was a little spicy as did my 2 & 4 year old, who had to eat something else. Used spicy Italian sausage and 3 C okra. Rice took longer than 20 minutes to soften and was all at the bottom of the pot. Would consider cooking the rice on the side and adding at the end or serving the soup over the rice as another reviewer suggested. Very good soup overall!

Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
Light, Fluffy, Yummy home comfort goodness! Added 3 TBS fresh parsley and 1 TBS fresh chives. Increased to 9 servings and used about 3 TBS butter. Cooked on top of Rachel Ray's Chicken and Dumplings recipe, using a left over rotisserie chicken for the meat and to make the broth the night before.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Delicious bread. Cut sugar to heaping 1/2 C of white and 1/2 C packed brown, grated 1 small fresh apple for half of the oil and used 2-3 C zucchini, plus a little nutmeg. Made a crumb topping with 1/2 C flour, sugar and oats, 1 tsp cinnamon and mixed with butter and coconut oil. Though topping was yummy it was messy, and unneeded. This is a keeper for fresh blueberry season - but seriously you can cut the sugar and it's still sweet.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
The pork chops were very flavorful. I added pepper to the seasoning, and not only sprinkled it on the chops, but also seasoned the egg wash. I didn't make the gravy and served with sweet potatoes. This is a keeper.

Fluffy Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
These are good basic biscuits, easy to make. The recipe only made 6 biscuits when rolled to 1.5 inches. My husband said to replace my drop biscuit recipe with this one.

Quick Asian Beef Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
Nice way to use Bok Choy, I also added Tatsoi since it came in my CSA this week. Used 8oz of regular Chinese noodles instead of the ramen - could use less noddles. Since I didn't have a seasoning packet I seasoned the beef with salt and pepper and then used garlic powder plus beef bouillon when I added the veggies.

'Out of Salad Dressing' Salad Dressing

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Took this to a friend's BBQ with a fresh green salad mix and it got rave reviews. They even kept the leftovers. The only change was to use a pressed garlic clove instead of the garlic salt, and I added just a little freshly ground pepper. The flavor blend deepened wonderfully even after sitting only 2 hours. Delicious keeper!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Good soup, even my toddlers liked it. I would have liked it to have a thicker/creamier consistency. I mashed the broccoli and used 2/3 heavy cream. Simmered my parmesan rinds before adding the cream mixture and added grated parmesan at the end. Yum.

Spiced Mini Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Delicious and moist. Used 1/2 C rolled oats, 1/2 C wheat flour and 1 C AP flour, only 1/4 C each brown and white sugar, 1/4 C butter and heaping 1/4 C applesauce for a little healthier version, with 1 C currants instead of raisins and 1/4 tsp each cloves and nutmeg. Still sweet, moist and delicious! Our playgroup friends always love them, and great because one child has egg allergies, but they can still eat these! Have also made with peaches. Haven't glazed them yet, but they certainly don't need the extra sweetness. This is a keeper!!

Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
I was afraid the dressing was going to be too sweet when I first made it, but it turned out terrific. Improvised with lettuce and feta cheese, and toasted the pecans in the oven with a little cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar water coating. YUMMY and so simple.

Turkey Wild Rice Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Good soup. Made 12 servings to match the 3 cups of turkey I had, plus a brown rice, black barley, radish seed mix from Trader Joes. Increased the amount of celery to a cup and included a small chopped zucchini for more veggies. Finished with sliced almonds and 2% milk since I didn't have 1/2 n 1/2 on hand. Nice light soup even though a white cream base.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
One of the best Tilapia recipes we've tried! Cut recipe in half for 1lb of fish. Followed the recipe closely but used 1TBS of butter and then olive oil, celery seed and garlic salt plus the other recommended seasonings, then added about 1/4C Panko bread crumbs which kept the sauce on the fish. Sprayed fish with a little olive oil when I turned them over. Delicious recipe for the regular rotation!

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
I started with 1/2 C each of dry black, navy, kidney and garbanzo beans. Did a quick soak and then cooked in fresh water with an onion, 3 small cloves chopped garlic and some fresh chopped parsley. The black and navy beans cooked in 1/2 hour, kidney in about 45 minutes and took and hour for the garbanzo. Next time I'll know in what order to cook the beans and add the faster cooking ones later. After cooking beans on the stove top I drained, reserving some of the liquid and added them with all the other ingredients to a crock pot to cook on high (used 1 yellow and 1 green pepper). Had to add additional salt because I cooked my own beans, and put some cumin in too.

Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
I used this recipe for a 2lb, bone in chuck roast from a natural, grass fed cow. Fortunately I checked it at 1 hour after the initial 30 minutes and it was just a little over done, but still delicious. I like the fact that this recipe doesn't involve soups, broths, or the addition of vegetables, and just leaves the great flavor of the meat, and drippings for a wonderful gravy. Especially if you want to use the meat for say shredded enchiladas or some other purpose after the initial meal. It's a keeper.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Creamy, tasty, quick and made with ingredients on hand, what more could you ask for! I cut the recipe in half, with 7oz cheddar and 1 oz asiago in addition to the parmigiano cheese, and used small cylinder pastas for my young children. The dijon is quite a strong flavor, so if you don't like it, cut back or omit. I also used homemade turkey broth I'd frozen from Thanksgiving. Served with peas and carrots, this is a keeper.

Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Nice alternative to pot pie or shepherds pie, though all cream casseroles begin to taste the same. Increased to 9 servings to accommodate the 3C turkey I had. Used 1 can each cream of celery and cream of mushroom soup, plus 1/2 can of pasta water and 2C sour cream. Sauteed small onion, then added 8 oz sliced fresh mushrooms, 2 cloves garlic and 1 shallot with salt, pepper, a little garlic salt and some celery seed, which really made the flavors pop. Mixed with 12 oz whole grain thin egg noodles and ~1C french fried onions, then baked for 30 min total at 350, adding ~1.5 C of french fried onions to the top the last 5 minutes - these took the recipe from good to yummy! Will consider baking covered the first 20 minutes next time as the cheese dried out some, but my husband liked the top crunchy. This made 2 8X8 casserole dishes, so I can give one to a friend with a new baby!

Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Tasted like a pot pie without the crust! Didn't use the stuffing, but next time I think I would put stuffing on the bottom like a crust. Added some frozen mixed veggies since I didn't have much leftover, but this was a great way to use up other Thanksgiving leftovers.
