Tomato Mac 'n' Cheese

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
THE KIDS LOOOOVED THIS! (ages 8, 7, 6). Next time I will "hide" some spinach, since they asked for more and more. I didn't have prego; I had Trader Joe's organic tomato and basil marinara, which already had "green spots" in it, so I can up it a notch next time. This should surely make the list in Kid Friendly Recipes!

Honey BBQ-Marinated Chicken Drumsticks

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
I thought this had great flavor! I always try a recipe exactly as written for the first time, unless I don't have the ingredients, and in this case I used orange juice instead of lemon, and tabasco instead of hot chili sauce (what IS hot chili sauce, btw?). Also my grill is outta fuel and my BRAND NEW broiler sucks so I had to crisp the skin on my Foreman. That was a buzz kill, but the flavor was yummmmm.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
HUGE HIT! Loved it, and had all the ingredients (except I used 2 10 oz. frozen, drained and squeezed chopped spinach). STILL getting requests for the recipe. THANK YOU!!! BTW, my 12 yr old girl gobbled these up, and my 10 yr boy old tolerated them.

Broccoli Risotto with Cream and Lemon

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I always try a recipe as is AND THIS WAS DELICIOUS!! Even though I didn't have cream (used whole milk) or chives. My 8 and 10 year olds enjoyed it even though they saw me chopping the onion...husband gobbled it up as well. THANK YOU!

Clam Sauce with Linguine

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Followed the recipe exactly (as I always do first time out) and it was great! Hubby has european roots and when the kids said "gross mom, my bread got soggy!" (because the sauce is more of a thick broth than a sauce) I told them this is how true Italianos eat, so MOP IT UP! That changed everything and plates were cleaned. Didn't even wash 'em. Just put them on the shelves and ready for the next meal.

Tuna Fish Pea Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
PERFECT! I used this recipe to make a tuna melt for the kids and we ALL loved it! Thank you! We used frozen peas (didn't have canned) and let them thaw in the tuna salad while we heated the bread and melted the cheese.

Zucchini Ranch Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
This was soooooo good! The kids (ages 9 and 11) loved it! I ADVERTISE to the kids that in my meals there are hidden veggies and can they identify them? They could not! P.S. we all wanted more of the ketchup/steak sauce blend! Double that for sure. Thanks for the recipe!

Green Beans Amandine

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
YUMMY! And I DO NOT like green beans! Used skinny frozen beans (Trader Joe's) and didn't have any almonds on hand and it was GREAT. Browned the butter a bit before I added the other ingredients. THX for helping me eat my greens!

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
I thought the flavor was fantastic but my meatballs didn't look cooked through so I kept cutting them in half and again and again. So that increased the cooking time by another 30 minutes. I'll absolutely try this again but with cooking or at least browning the balls before I toss them in.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2014
So so good!! I made it with red onions cuz the recipe didn't state a choice. Don't care for dill, so I omitted it. Ate it all right out of the bowl, so I have no idea how much better it would be on a sandwich! :)

Asparagus Chicken Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
This was FANTASTIC! I used thin asparagus, fat-free half-and-half, and a frozen un-thawed pie crust. Delicious and beautiful. The tweens ate it with ZERO complaints (or compliments, to be honest. But who cares, right? They ate it!)

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
Loved 'em. At first bite my 11 year old "No, thank you." Then he started getting hungry watching the rest of us gobble away and he tried one again and ended up eating 4 or 5. The kids dipped them in ketchup and I dipped mine in creamy caeser dressing. Yum! Will make again, just as is. thank you!!

Fabulous Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
Yeah, this really was fantastic. So easy, so flavorful. Our tweens loved it. Ran out of butter, so I used some of my precious burnt butter with garlic stash, along with the soy sauce, and oh my. Amazing. Thank you thank you for such a simple and totally delicious recipe!!!!

Flank Steak Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
This was terrific even though I was only able to marinate for 30 minutes! I also didn't use flank steak (some sort of meat recall) so I used a thinly pounded flat round tip. Again, fantastic, and thanks!

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
I loved this, but my hubs, 13 and 11 year olds didn't. I have no idea why. They must notta been in the mood? As always, I made it without alterations the first time, except, and I know I'm contradicting myself now, but I used half and half instead of whole cream. No biggy, right? I think my crew is getting picky cuz this was great, and would also be awesome with clams instead of shrimp!
