Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2003
This was a hit at a christmas potluck. Even my finicky husband who claimed he didn't like them (before he tried them), was caught eating them bundle by bundle. I varied my ingredients a bit...used 2 sticks of unsalted butter, 1.5 lbs bacon, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp Liquid Smoke, 1 tbsp of Tony Cachere's seasoning, and left it uncovered, basting once during cooking. They only took about 20 minutes to roll, and it lined the bottom of a 9"x13" glass dish. Was told to make again, and the guys would by the groceries required!!

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
I called this "slop" and "gruel" while dishing it up for my husband. The consistency was horribly mushy, the rice had broken down and the entire crock pot looked like it was filled with malt-o-meal. It's a good thing I added several spices because that may have been the ONLY thing that saved this was that the tast was acceptable. I added one tsp of garlic, Cavender's, black pepper, rosemary, and minced onions. Will not ever make again.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2004
This soup was wonderful. Well at least to me. I think it was too "veggie" for my carnivorous husband despite the sausage. I did add 1 tsbp dissolved cornstarch to thicken within the last hour of cooking. Closer to the end I removed 2 cups and pureed them in the blender as others did to give it a really thick & hearty consistency. I used approx. 12 oz. smoked sausage instead of a full pound to avoid a strong sausage taste. It reheated well, although the appearance was odd to my co-workers, but they all said it smelled wonderful. I froze the leftovers and intend on finishing it soon as we enter the really cold months!! I'm very fuss-free so I could not give it 5 stars due to the fact that I had to transfer & puree a portion. Other than that, will definitely make again for a more veggie friendly crowd.

Down Home Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2004
I had never ventured outside the well known blue mac n cheese box, so I was skeptical. I thought there was more work to making homemade macaroni & cheese, but this recipe proved otherwise. Dispite the constant stirring to prevent scalding, this turned out great! My husband liked, I liked, it was just plain 'ol good.

Chicken Spaghetti Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2004
We did not like this recipe. It made enough for a crowd, but was very bland and very dry. It needed a whole lot of something to make it better. I ate it a leftovers for lunch the entire week (because my husband would let the enitre pan go to waste despite how bad it was) with the help of plain yogurt & more cheese to attempt to moisten it up. Will not ever make this one again.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2004
This was an easy meal to put together. I used two cans c. of celery instead of mushroom to save a trip to the store. I added baby carrots, celery, and peeled potatoes in the last hour, and it turned out great. The only downfall (my own fault really) is that I didn't begin this until noon so I cooked it on high for 5 hours. Next time I'll plan ahead and cook it on low for the recommended 8 hours, while using one can c. of celery and one mushroom. Other than that, this is definitely a keeper recipe!!

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2004
This was my first attempt at homemade sauce. It turned out well, of course I tweaked it a little to my liking. I omitted the wine (dry county), and placed all the spices (w/a little extra e.v.o.o. to help the spices blend better) and tomatoes into a crock pot on high. Sauted onion, fresh sliced mushrooms, thinly sliced zucchini w/e.v.o.o. & large crushed clove of garlic, transferred (with a pinch of sugar) into crock pot and continued to cook on high for one hour (1.5 hrs total). Served with penne pasta, topped it with a little grated mozzerella, breadsticks, and a salad. My finicky husband picked out the zucchini, but nonetheless, this a good meatless sauce!! It was very easy, the prep time took a little longer b/c I used fresh veggies. (I may add some shredded carrots next time to appease my husband.) I did double the batch because I didn't know how many were coming over, and it made PLENTY!!! I had enough to feed 10 people. I can see freezing the sauce in small batches for quick during the week dinners. It turned out great, and I got good reviews from my friends I served it to.

Easy Chicken in Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2004
This one is a keeper!! I have been looking for a recipe that a "step up" from the ordinary. Healthy too!! As with mosts cooks, I changed it up a bit according to what I had on hand. I used a pkg of boneless, skinless, thighs (7 total). (I think they make a moister chicken.) I also added a layer of provolone cheese to the chicken after placing it in the platter. I added diced onion, and chopped mushrooms to the tomatoes (i used roma tomatoes). The sauce was yummy! I used just a plain white wine for the sauce. I think hubby may actually eat healthy if I continue to find great, easy recipes like this one. May try it on the in-laws this weekend when they come into town!! Thanks a bunch!!

Creamy Potato Pork Chop Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2004
This was an easy recipe with lots of basic ingredients. The dish in a whole was less than I expected. Don't get me wrong, my husband thought it was okay and wouldn't mind having it again, but it needed something to kick it to the next level. Would be a good one to experiment with. Maybe some veggies in the hashbrowns next time??

Spring Strawberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2004
I LOVED the dressing!!!! I used the tip from another cook and added a couple of strawberries to the vinagrette...it was so good. My husband of course thinks he is allergic to anything healthy and wasn't impressed. Would be good to make for a shower, or an all female get-together.

Catfish Creole

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2004
Not a bad quick meal. I tweaked it by giving some diced onion and celery in some e.v.o.o. a quick saute. Added some chopped garlic instead of powder, a dash of cayenne, a splash of lemon juice, and two boullion cubes. I wouldn't say this would feed a family of four, maybe 3 if you have only one serving each. No fishy taste at all, "used fresh frozen" catfish nuggets instead of fillets. I enjoyed it, let's hope my picky husband does as well.

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2004
Great, easy recipe. Only cooking for myself, because my husband doesn't eat spinach. I bet I could put some bacon in it and he would eat it. I could see me making a few of these in advance and freezing them, since I am home with a newborn! Easy & quick lunch. THANKS!

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2004
I used this sauce to replicate the Angelini di Mare I had at Macaroni Grill the previous night. This sauce was WAY better! I doubled the recipe (omitted the butter), pureed the canned tomatoes, added 3/4 lb. jumbo shrimp (cooked in the sauce), two 3 oz.pkg of Lump Crab meat, 1/2 C. fresh frozen green peas (blanched), and freshly shredded parmesan both in the sauce and as a garnish. It was DELISH!!!! It got rave review from my friends I cooked for. I used 1 1/2 pkg of angel hair pasta, and it was plenty for three to have seconds, and still have 2 hefty servings left over. Suffice to say doubling the recipe feeds 6-8 at $3/person!! Definitely a keeper!

Cheddar Cheese Straws

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
I really tried to get these pencil thin, but the dough kept spreading out when baking. I'm not sure if the dough wasn't thick enough or what. I ended up rolling 1 inch balls and flattening them to make bite size crisps. My toddler daughter seemed pleased with them. Will experiment with the amount of water and put more cayenne next time.

Multigrain Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
These turned out very heavy and dense. I was only able to make 5 pankcakes out of it because the batter was so thick. I really want this recipe to work, because it is so low in fat and calories. I might try adding some more milk and yogurt to thin it out a bit next time. The flavor was okay, but it needed to be spiked a bit. Maybe I'll add some more cinnamon or even nutmeg next time. I topped them with some butter spread and chunky applesuace, and my toddler liked them just fine. Little to heavy for myself, and I know my husband wouldn't eat them. So back to the drawing board to tweak the recipe. Good base recipe to work from though.

Oat-N-Honey Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
This was my first use of the bread machine. Was very skeptical at first. I had it on the regular white bread cycle for 1.5 lg loaf. Two hours later, the smell was great! I didn't have oats on hand, and frankly don't miss them. It's been an hour since it was done, and it has been eaten with butter, and as a GREAT sandwich. My husband was surprised it was wheat, and even LIKED it. Whoa..gotta make this again. Probably tonight! THANKS for a great recipe!

Very Easy Risotto

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
I have made this dish for casual meals and as a side for fancy dinners with salmon, with both situations it has fared well! I love the ease, and the taste is awesome. I've made with both mozzerella and parmesan cheeses, and have spiked it with vegetables from time to time like broccoli. A TIME SAVER!

Shrimp Fondue

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
This brought rave reviews from my dinner party! The differences I made were (1) I didn't have c. of shrimp and couln't find @ store, so I added 1/2 cup heavy cream and 3/4 minced shrimp & crawfish (leftover from the crawfish boil the night before.) (2) I added about a cup of shredded parmesan. (3) I added paprika and cayenne (4) I only added 8 oz. sour cream (got that hint from the previous reviews.) (5) I added about 3-4 tbsp of lea & perrins. Okay so I made several changes, but it turned out fabulous. I baked in oven after heating to give slight crusty top at 375 for 15 mins. It was bubby, shrimp, cheesy goodness! Went EXTRA well with fresh crusty french bread! Great recipe!

Onion Quiche

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
This was a very good, very basic, very quick quiche that could be easily customized. I pretty made as is except I used half & half instead of cream, and on the recommendation of another member I added another egg. I forgot to get swiss at the store so I used 1/4 c. cheddar & 1/4 c. parmesan. NOTE: If you are using a deep dish pie crust this quiche will not be enough to fill the crust.

Cheesy Tuna Melts

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
I forgot to add the celery, but this was still good. I used a pouch of tuna instead of a can and I think it was a few ounces more, so it left the tuna mixture kinda dry, but that was okay the juicy tomato helped with that. Will make again and experiment with seasonings and cheeses!
