Swanson® Braised Beef with Shallots and Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
This is delicious! My meat and potatoes man and I loved it. I did not add the parsley or lemon zest, but otherwise made the dish as written. I've given this recipe to a few people, and it's always well received.

Gyros Burgers

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
Sorry, we did not care for this at all. Didn't taste much like a gyro. I was so hoping it would!

Kerry's Beany Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
We love this salad. I've been making it for several years now, and we like it since it's healthy and delicious. Perfect for summertime. I just use a whole can each of the kidney and black beans and corn. Also, I use only barley instead of the brown rice, and not as much as it calls for. Yum!

Tropical Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This was fine, but it didn't knock our socks off. The salsa was more work than I had planned on. Like I said, the pork chops were yummy, but I probably won't go to the trouble again for a fairly modest return.

Cheesy Vegetable Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This is a really good, really easy recipe. I cut the butter in half, and just throw in whatever veggies I have on hand. It's great for cleaning out the fridge. Yummy cold weather comfort food.

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
Even though I'm not really a fan of sloppy joes, these are pretty good. I've made these many times, but yesterday I used 1 cup of chopped yellow onion instead of the two different kinds of onions, and I used an 8oz. can of tomato sauce instead of the soup. I couldn't tell the difference - they were still great. I cook them way down so there's no crunch to the veggies. I usually make a double batch and freeze half for an easy dinner on the run.

Honey Mustard Dream Delight Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
Yum. These have become a summer standard at our house. I don't put quite as much spice on the chops as the recipe calls for. In fact, I just mix up a batch of the rub and keep it in jar in my pantry so I always have some on hand. Also, I just use whatever mustards I have on hand, but the honey and horseradish are a must.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
I made this cake for my son's first birthday party. It was delicious! Very moist and great flavor. Just what I wanted - I love yellow cake with a rich, chocolate icing. I was concerned at first because the batter was very thick, and I had to cook it an extra 5 or 10 minutes, but it turned out great. This one is going in the permanent file.

Almond Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Yum! This is fabulous. I usually double the dressing, as I like a lot of sauce. My red meat eating man even loves this. Perfect for a light dinner in the heat of the summer.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Oh, this was wonderful. My boyfriend always orders steak medallions gorgonzola at our favorite fancy restaurant, and this was almost just like that. I made this for Christmas Eve dinner, and everyone thought it was divine.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
I've been looking for my go-to brownie recipe, and this is it! Very rich, very chocolatey. They have perfect brownie texture, with flaky crust on the top, and fudgy interior. They're super easy to make, and I almost always have the ingredients on hand. I've made these a couple of times for brownies a la mode, and my family just raves about them. Yum!

Avocado and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
This was pretty tasty. I've made this a couple of times when I just happen to have all ingredients on hand, and need to use the produce. I probably won't go out of my way to make this again, but it's perfect if you have ripe avocados and tomatoes.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This was just okay. I was hoping it would be great, since it's so easy, but it was really rather bland. Nothing wrong with it, but I probably won't make again.

Heavenly Chipped Chocolate and Hazelnut Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
I have made this cheesecake several times, always to rave reviews. It's the best cheesecake I believe I've ever had. I initially tried the recipe so I could use up a bottle of Frangelico that I had. I always use chocolate grahams for the crust, and I think this makes it better. The hazelnuts are a pain to work with, but oh so good. I don't think I used quite as many as I was supposed to last time, and I just put the chocolate topping on and then sprinkled with chopped nuts to make it a little easier. Magnifique!

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This is one of my favorite soups. During the winter months I make soup every Sunday, and this is in regular rotation. My boyfriend prefers plain, honest food, and I would rather eat something with a little more pizazz and sophistication. This recipe fits the bill on both counts. I love the addition of the curry powder.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This taco soup is awesome! We eat this pretty regularly. So easy, good for you, inexpensive...what else can you ask for? I use ground turkey when I make this, and even BF who (always) prefers beef loves it. I've made in the crock pot and also on top of the stove - great both ways, but don't use as much water as it calls for. I find if I cook it on top of the stove it thickens up a little with time. Love the addition of chips, cheese and sour cream.

Five Star Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I chose this cheesecake recipe because it only calls for 3 pkgs. cream cheese, which I preferred over some of the other recipes that called for 4 or 5! pkgs. I wanted a classic cheesecake, and this fits the bill. Texture is very creamy. I did use another recipe for the crust (1 1/2 C graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 C melted butter, 1/4 C sugar - bake for 10 minutes). I've made other cheesecakes in the past, and have had problems with cracking or sinking in the middle. This one looks perfect, due to the water bath. I did have trouble with water leaking into the springform pan (I ended up making the crust twice because the first one was ruined), but will experiment a bit more with the technique to get it just right. I read online to use a plastic turkey oven bag instead of the foil. No leaks! I served the cheesecake with a seedless raspberry sauce I made from frozen berries and sugar. This made an excellent birthday cake for my BF.

Fresh Asparagus and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
This was just okay. A good way to clean out the fridge, but I'm not keeping this in my permanent file. I did add a splash of white wine, minced garlic, and a can of mushrooms to liven it up a little.
