Charleston Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
This breakfast casserole was fantastic, but I did make just a few changes, based on other reviewers. I replaced the "soggy" croutons with potatoes (I used half a bag of frozen cubed hash browns - nuked for about 1 minute), and since I'm not a big fan of bacon, I used fresh Italian breakfast sausage (out of the casings), which I cooked in a skillet, drained, and crumbled. I used 8 eggs and 2 cups of milk, I only used about 1/3 of a green pepper, and I added a teaspoon of onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. This casserole was SO delicious! I will make it again and again!!

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
Yum! This was a great pasta dish, and very easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly, and it was excellent! It makes WAY more than 4 servings, so you can cut the recipe in half, and still easily serve four hungry people. Especially if you serve it with a salad and some garlic bread. I will making this one again and again! Thanks!! :)

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Well, this one's a keeper folks. It was simple to make, and delicious to eat! Do not use two sticks of butter. One stick is plenty!! Throw in a little white wine too. I sprinkled panko crumbs over the top before I baked. Served it tossed with angel hair pasta. Perfect!

Pasta Peas

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this recipe! I have been eating "pasta with the peas" since I was a little girl. I now make it for my own family, and it is a favorite in our house!! If you want it to taste even more scrumptious, add a teaspoon of sugar to the sauce. That's how us Sicilian's do it! And if you don't like the bits of onion, just use onion powder instead. It's just as delicious! Bon Appetite! :)

Sauce Rosee

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Very tasty and easy to put together. Tasted like we were dining at a fine restaurant. I used half & half instead of cream. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a tee. Will make this again for sure!! :)

Campbell's® Swiss Vegetable Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I made this for Thanksgiving dinner this year as a side dish, and everyone at the table raved about it. I used Cream of Celery instead of Mushroom, and I omitted the french fried onion rings, simply because we don't like them. Instead, I sprinkled buttered bread crumbs over the top, and it was delicious! I added 1/2 tsp. of onion powder and some marjoram, just to give it more flavor. I will be making this dish again and again!

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Made this last night for dinner and it was a big hit! The only change I made was I used onion powder instead of an onion, and I put in 1 extra can of broth, and used only 1 cup of macaroni. It was perfect!! Even better the next day for lunch!! Yum!

Pesto Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This was SO good and easy to make! I simply used one leftover cooked chicken breast that I cut into bite-sized pieces. I didn't have sun-dried tomatoes, so I added a 1/2 cup of frozen peas to give it some color. I used a 6 oz. jar of Trader Joe's pesto. Perfect!! :)

Slow Cooker Barbequed Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Oh My Goodness...This was fantastic! Everyone in the house nearly fell over at how delicious these BBQ'd Pork Sandwiches tasted! The meat was so tender, it just fell apart! The combo of coffee, bourbon, and broth sounded so strange to me, but I decided to go with it. I'm VERY glad I did! Five Big Shiny Delicious Stars!!!

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2008
Wow, this dish was VERY tasty!! I will play around with it, only because I think it was a little heavy on the noodles (but I think I put in more than the recipe called for, so it was my bad). The taste was wonderful, but I might try using canned tomatoes instead of fresh, simply to make it a little less dry. Other than that, this dish really is quite delicious AS IS. I will make it again and again. P.S. I just remembered I used one tsp. of onion powder in place of the onion, just for a matter of preference. It was perfect!

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I made this for a crowd, and everyone LOVED it and wanted the recipe! To make it even easier, I used the precooked bacon from Costco. Simply microwave for 1 minute on a paper towel, and the bacon is ready! I also made one of the casserole's with cooked, crumbled Italian sausage. Excellent!! Will make again and again!!

Potato Skillet

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I used 4 potatoes and sliced them very thin (more like shavings). I also used 8 eggs to make it more "eggy." The spices called for were perfect, and added a wonderful flavor to the dish. I even sprinkled a bit more of all three spices over the whole dish once it was cooked. Delicious! Will make again for sure!!

Toscana Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
The store was out of kale, so I just used spinach. I used low-sodium chicken broth for all the liquid (instead of broth and water) and I also used evaporated milk instead of heavy cream, to keep it healthier. Absolutely deelish!!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
In the summertime, we like to BBQ salmon, but other than that, I really don't know how to cook fish! So, in trying to incorporate fish into our diets for good health, I decided to buy Tilapia. I had no idea how to prepare it, so I looked for the easiest and best-reviewed recipe I could find. And here it was! This Broiled Tilapia Permesan was absolutely DEE-LISH!! I sprinkled a little bit of garlic pepper on the fish before cooking, and it was heavenly. In the creamy topping, I used low-fat sour cream in place of the mayo, and about half the Parmesan cheese. Excellent Tilapia, and it couldn't have been easier to prepare! Served it with fresh-steamed broccoli and whole wheat cous-cous. This one's a keeper!! :)

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
This is THE best Pot Pie I've ever made. I'm throwing away all my other Pot Pie recipe's, 'cause this one's the keeper! I only strayed a little bit from the original recipe...I used a whole wheat pie crust, and I substituted cooked, cubed sweet potato in place of the celery. Also added a teaspoon of garlic pepper to add a little zip. I doubled the saucy part, as per other reviewers suggestion, and cooked it for 45 minutes at 375. I will make this again and again!! :)

Braised Pork Ragu

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Made this tonight...FABULOUS!!!! The only one small change I made was...I used a 14 oz. can of fire-roasted chopped tomatoes, instead of a 28 oz. can of plain chopped tomatoes. It was perfect! Served it over egg noodles with Parm Cheese. The whole family loved...will make this again and again!!!

Pesto Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
This dish was excellent! The only two small changes I made was to cut the amount of butter in half (I used unsalted), and I only used 1/4 cup Romano cheese (instead of 1-and-a-half cups) and substituted a cup of low-fat mozzarella for the remaining cheese. The rest of the recipe I followed as it was written and it was delicious! Using less butter (w/no salt) in no way compromised the flavor, so I recommend this, to keep down the calorie and sodium count. I served this with a side of Italian Kale, also found on this site. It was a wonderful meal that I will be making again!!
