Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
This was really great, though my review is based on alterations rather than the original. I sauteed 3 cloves of minced garlic and half a leek in about a tablespoon of butter. Then added sirloin tips and browned them. Added 4 chopped porcini mushrooms (fresh), 1 can of tomato sauce plus filled up the can 1/2 way with water and also poured that in. I added two teaspoons of beef base, oregano, thyme, and a little garlic powder, as well as some salt and pepper. I let it cook for at least 45 minutes in the sauce. It was AMAZING! My husband said it was one of the best things I've made. We ate it with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccolini. It's definitely on the regular rotation now!

Easy A La King Biscuit Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
we had to make some adjustments since my husband is gluten-free (had to make our own gluten-free biscuits and make the soup base from scratch), but this was very tasty! a bit like chicken pot pie. it required a little more effort than I expected, but I assume that if you could follow the recipe as written it would be much easier. Thanks!

Indian Dahl with Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I have made this several times with great success. It requires far more spices than called for in the recipe in order to give it any flavor, and I think using ghee instead of regular butter would really put it over the top. Thanks for a great base!

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
we thought this was only okay. but we had to adjust slightly because of my gluten-free husband. I'm not sure how different this is from the various forms of layer dip. not particularly satisfying...

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
This was good, though it got saltier as it sat. I don't know if this is the result of the type of stock I used or if it was something else. But it was delicious! We used a homemade can of tomatoes rather than chopped fresh. Even my husband who claims not to like kale enjoyed this. great with some crusty bread! Thanks!

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
This was amazing!!! I used russet potatoes simply because that was all I had on hand. And I sauteed some chopped pancetta with the leeks. I also used MUCH less butter than called for, and used half-and-half rather than heavy cream. The smell of leeks and pancetta cooking in butter was HEAVENLY! I used an immersion blender to make it smooth. This is one of the most delicious things I have ever made. And super easy with ingredients that I almost always have on hand to boot. Thank you!

Sandy's Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
It is possible to do this without all of the processed goods--which I think makes it taste MUCH better. I made "cream of chicken soup from scratch" on this website (using half and half). Because my husband has a gluten sensitivity, we used gluten-free quinoa rotini pasta. I chopped fresh mushrooms and carrots, added some frozen green peas, and used chicken pulled off of a leftover roast chicken plus some "mexican" shredded cheese. I only added an extra 1/2 cup of half-and-half. And I covered it and made sure to stir it twice--once at 22 minutes, and again after another 20 minutes. Then I took off the foil and let it cook for another 10 minutes. The noodles were cooked well, and everything was delicious.

Cream of Chicken Soup From Scratch

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
This was an excellent alternative to canned cream of chicken soup. I generally find the canned stuff a little gross, and since my husband has a gluten sensitivity, we can't use it anyway. I used this in a casserole, and it was great! I used half and half only because our milk had expired. And we used gluten-free flour instead of wheat flour. But it thickened up really well and smelled delicious! Thanks so much!

Mushroom Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
admittedly, I changed the marinade here quite a bit, but it was inspired by the original, which I think would be excellent in its own right. I used olive oil instead of butter, added marjoram (but more like 1 tsp), ground pepper, 1 tsp of lemon juice, 1 tblsp of dijon mustard, 1 tbslp of yellow mustard, 1 tblsp of apple butter, and 1 tblsp of soy sauce. I marinated the pork in a plastic bag for 2-3 hours, then added mushrooms to coat in the marinade for a few minutes. Places pork and mushrooms in a square baking dish, covered with aluminum foil, and baked in the oven at 425 for 35 minutes. it came out perfectly and really delicious. we ate it with mashed sweet potatoes (with butter and cinnamon), which was an awesome complement! My husband LOVED it. I think you can really never go wrong with mustard, apples, and pork. I liked the marjoram and lemon juice additions!

Cheddar Broccoli Chicken and Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
This was five stars the way that I did it, but I'm unconvinced that the canned soup would make it better... I cooked pieces of chicken tenderloins in some olive oil in one pot while cooking the cheese sauce in the other. For that, I melted butter and added some flour (gluten-free) to start a roux. Then I added cream and a little milk, some parmesan cheese and some shredded "mexican" cheese", as well as dijon mustard and paprika. I kept adding cream, milk, and cheese until I got the right quantity. added fresh broccoli and baby carrots and allowed to cook. Add the chicken after it was browned and simmered together until potatoes were done. used garlic mashed potatoes rather than regular. delicious!

Magic Cookie Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
I grew up calling these "hello dollies". a good basic recipe. I mix chopped pecans, coconut and chocolate chips together to get even distribution. I melt the butter and mix it in with the graham cracker crust and then press it into the bottom. pour half of the can of evaporated milk on top of the crust, then add the coconut mixture and then add more evaporated milk on top. it is ALWAYS a hit and if you make it for people who have never had it before people will think you are a culinary genius. ;)

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
delicious! i make variations of this all of the time. easy way to get a great side dish. you just have to make sure you coat the potatoes well with the olive oil and use a good (glass) baking dish to avoid burning.
