Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
Delicious! Make ahead tip - make dressing the day before. Seems thick, but works out fine. I substitued "balsamic vinegar" for the white vinegar. Used "candied" pecans and added bits of bacon. Very sweet so not a lot of dressing required.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
I brined my tenderloin first then proceeded w/ dry rub - as others, reduced chipotle powder to 1 Tbsp - go for 1-1/2 Tbsp if you like spicy, and increased brown sugar to 6 Tbsp. Grill on med-high, 5 min per side was perfect!

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
A beautiful salad & tasty too. I prepped the salad the day before (cut salad greens & wrapped in paper towel, then placed in a ziploc - sliced strawberries & placed in separate ziploc - made dressing) so party time, it was easy assembly. Replaced almonds with Trader Joe's Candied Walnuts. Yummy!!

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2012
Add some extra pancetta and to spice it up, use the spicy Italian sausage (I needed to bake them for about 30 minutes) and extra salt at the end. Topped w/ Parmesan - was a meal in itself. No need to puree, if the potatoes are cubed small and cooked until really tender. Delicious!

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
Great spring/summer side dish. I sliced and drained tomatoes in the am, and I did add salt to the tomato layer when assemblying. Did not bother with the onion in the bread crumb mixture. Really good & always gets great reviews. Has anyone prepped this the day before? Wasn't sure if it would get too soggy??

Simple Chicken Brine

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
Say goodbye to dried out chicken! I marinated thighs and breasts for 4 hours, then proceeded with a recipe I had. BBQ'd and the chicken turned out lovely - even the kids said it was good. Do it!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I have numerous salmon recipes, as we eat it a couple of times a week. This is my favorite - followed recipe directions exactly & I thought it was perfect. No need to make any adjustments, maybe cooking time depending on thickness of salmon. A little on the sweet side, just the way I like it!

'Calabacitas Guisada' (Stewed Mexican Zucchini)

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
This turns out so much better than it sounds. Great side dish to Mexican fare or Tex-Mex! Make ahead tip: I made this and then turned the stove off and let it sit in the pot for about an hour. Just simmered for about 8 minutes prior to serving. Also used Mexican-style stewed tomatoes - lovely!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
The simplicity of this is wonderful! I had a 3 lb. roast and cooked on low for 8 hours - came out dry. Should've read the reviews first! Definitely, need to salt & pepper first. Will try again with less cook time.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
There are so many versions of this appetizer - I don't think of these as anything special but they do always go at the parties and there's always compliments, so it must be me! Anyhow, I did use a variety of tortillas for "presentation", did not use the whole ranch dressing mix, used chopped spinach in place of celery, used diced olives instead of sliced and added chopped bacon. People loved them! Made the night before and sliced prior to the party. You can't go wrong with these.

Justin's Hoosier Daddy Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
This is a very "safe" chili w/ lots of potential. I ommited the broth & added garlic w/ the onions - great consistency. I like a little kick & thought this recipe was missing that (did only use 4 Tbsp. chili powder, next time stick w/ 5). Overall, "family-friendly" recipe but not for your die-hard chili fan's.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Really good - I had to scale down as I didn't have enough squash so didn't have measurements down quite right. But really creamy & good flavor.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This is a good mid-week family meal, even being a little on the fancy side. When simmering, I did flip the chicken and total simmer time was about 16 minutes. Came out pretty close to perfectly moist. My 7-year old said he enjoyed it, along with the rest of the family. Keeper!
