Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
I make this every year and it is a total hit. I had a friend of mine (who happens to be Irish) tell me that her grandmother always added a dark Irish Stout when cooking the beef. SO I decided to use a can of Guinness then water to cover. DELICIOUS! Even if you dont like dark beer the way the flavors mesh are wonderful! JUST TRY IT!! :)

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
Like some others I was hesitant to put raw meat in my sauce...but it turned out fantastic. I made a few changes based on some of the other reviews. I used 2 slices of bread that were soaked in milk then blended them. Sounds weird if you have not made meatballs before but trust me it makes all the difference! I also added a packet of Lawry's seasoning for spaghetti to the sauce. When my boyfriend came home after the sauce had been cooking he said it smelt just like an Italian restaurant. I had to remove the meatballs and add another can of tomato paste (i was afraid of messing up the balls by stirring in the paste) This is time consuming but WELL WORTH IT! Next time I will do the meatballs the night before put the sauce in the crock pot and let it simmer ALL DAY so we can have a wonderful meal on a week night! Do add soggy milk bread to your meatballs, it adds moisture and gives an amazing texture!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
I made this last night and it was a total hit! My fiancée ate half the pie, and my 8 yr old stepdaughter loved it! I made a few changes to cut the cooking time. I coated the pie shell with an egg white and cooked for 5 minutes while I was chopping veggies. I added potatoes that were diced to the veggie mix. I cubed 3 chicken breasts and put them in a pan with 1 can of chicken broth and cooked for about 10 minutes then added celery, potatoes, carrots and onion until the veggies were done. I dumped the entire pan of chicken, veggies, and broth in to a bowl. I added about 1cup of milk and spooned in flower until it thickened with a quarter of a chicken bouillon cube. Once it was thickened up I added everything together it was nice and creamy. I then put it in the pie shell and covered with the top shell and cooked for 10 minutes or until the top crust was browned. This was not dry at all, it turned out perfect. From start to finish it was about an hour. Now that I have made it I will try dicing my veggies (except for the potatoes) and adding broccoli the night before to reduce my cooking time. This will defiantly be part of my rotation!
