Southern Ham and Brown Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This was SO good! I threw all the ingredients in the crock pot and let it cook all day. I only used 6 cups of water. It was perfect! I served it over fried potatoes, with cornbread muffins. Yummy!

Different Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I made this dinner as a special Valentine's Day treat for my family. My husband, two teenage boys and I, give this recipe 5 big shiny stars! The only thing I added was a few dashes of lemon pepper just to give it a little zip, but honestly this dish would taste great with only the listed ingredients! Not only was the flavor fantastic, but it was SO easy to make. The next time I have guests over for dinner, I will most definitely consider making this dish. Very impressive!

Broccoli Chicken Casserole III

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
My family LOVED this dish. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream, and in place of curry powder (which we don't like) I sprinkled thyme, marjerum, and basil. I added a bit of milk so it wouldn't be dry. I think it's the olives that make this broccoli/chicken casserole unique from all the rest. It added just a dash of 'something different' and even my teenagers who don't like olives, liked this dinner! I will definitely make this again! :)

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Oh My Goodness! Even after reading all of the rave reviews, I still was not expecting this iced coffee to taste THIS good! It is fantastic! I made it for myself and my two teenage boys, and we all agreed that it is as good as Starbucks, if not better! We added a couple tablespoons of vanilla creamer to give it just a bit more flavor and sweetness. I know we will be making this yummy drink all summer long!

Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I made this breakfast pizza today, and my family gobbled it up! The only place in the recipe where I strayed, was instead of using crescent rolls for the crust, I used pizza dough that I bought at a health food store. I followed the other reviews, and forced myself to use only 3 eggs (since I am notorious for using more than the recipe calls for), and I'm really glad I stuck to the recipe! 3 eggs was the perfect amount! Note: Make sure you give your pizza dough an "edge", since the eggs will run over the sides if they're not properly penned in! Buon appetite!! :)

Turkey Ragu with Fontina and Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Delicious!! I used larger noodles, just because I feel like I'm eating Hamburger Helper when I use elbow macaroni. :) I didn't have any Fontina cheese, so I used Mozzarella and it was still very tasty! When everything was bubbling on the stove, I threw in a pinch of fennel, a tsp. of sugar, and a few shakes of red pepper flakes. The whole family really enjoyed this dish, and I will definitely be making it again!

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! :)

Healthy Turkey Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
Extremely yummy and easy! I basically tripled the ingredients because I used one-and-a-half lb's. of ground turkey. I made a nice big meatloaf and fed a family of four, including 1 very hungry hubby, and 2 very hungry teenage boys. There was only 1 sliver leftover! I served it with the "Green Beans with Bread Crumbs" recipe listed on this website, and both dishes were a huge hit with the family!! Will absolutely make this healthy dinner again and again!! :)

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!!

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!!

The Best Meatloaf I've Ever Made

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
I made this tonight for my family and it was great meatloaf!! The only thing I changed on this recipe was I used ground turkey instead of ground beef (huge beef recall happening right now...don't want to chance the Mad Cow thing!). Anyway...this turkey meatloaf was absolutely fantastic!! Oh yeah...one other thing I did was use a cup of seasoned bread crumbs instead of the sliced bread. My whole family said this was "the best meatloaf I have ever made." So I'm thinking you titled this recipe perfectly! :) Will make this again!! Buon Appetite!

Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
Can you say YUMMY? This recipe was simply delicious! Everyone in my house raved!! I used a bag of Trader Joe's french, thin, green beans, which in my opinion are better than "regular" green beans. After steaming them, I coated them with the olive oil first, and then tossed them with everything else! So easy to make, and yet it looked like a fancy dish in a nice restaurant! This would make a wonderful side dish for thanksgiving dinner, or to bring to a potluck.

Three Cheese Baked Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
I made this dish EXACTLY as the recipe stated, and my family of four liked it very much! I'll be making it next week for my Bunko group of 12 women (I had to test it on the family first, to be sure it was a hit). It was! :)

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 Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2012
I made these tonight and they were a big hit with the hubby and sons! I didn't have any cumin, so I substituted 1/2 tsp. chili powder + 1/4 tsp. smoky paprika. I think it worked, because it turned out delicious! I also forgot to buy plain yogurt so I just used sour cream. Tasted perfect! These burritos are a little bit of work, but well worth the effort!!
