Chiliville Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
Best Chile EVER! I can say this because I don't like Chile! The sausage was the key ingredient, in my opinion. My husband thought the addition of celery was genius (I just let him think it was my idea!). This is a monthly "must have" for us from now on during winter months. Thanks Johnsonville for great sausage and a great recipe! Love the idea someone gave of adding bow tie pasta!

Maple-Balsamic Marinated Steak with Grilled Pear Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
Great new marinade and flavors for our steaks!! I would never be able to think of these flavor combinations myself. I used a balsamic vinaigrette dressing as suggested in an earlier review, blue cheese, and almonds. Delicious! My husband is convinced that I can cook a better steak than most restaurants now - so he won't order one when we go out. It's very complimentary! Thanks for another great recipe and twist on a "regular" steak dinner.

Beef and Couscous Stuffed Baby Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
We really love our peppers so this was another great way to incorporate them into our weekly meals! I make stuffed peppers regularly but this recipe with couscous and using the mini peppers was a new twist and fun; it gave greater options for how much any of us wanted to eat. They are also great for "snacking". They were easy to grab quickly and pop in your mouth after a few seconds in the microwave.

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2013
Delicious! I have added crushed strawberries to it; one reviewer suggested coffee I will have to do that one of these next times. Very good, simple, vanilla ice cream recipe.

Rosa's Carne con Pappas

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
I added more veggies and took out the potatoes to make it less carbs and healthier. But I loved the original Idea. Because I had Herdez mexican cooking Sauces on hand, and not the salsa, I used the Padilla Chile sauce that gave it a smoky flavor. Added some green chile. VERY GOOD. We loved it and it was easy to make.

Sausage and Vegetable Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
I have never made Risotto before, but I hear it being used in a lot of movies I've watched. For the amount of work involved, because I had to constantly stir the rice, It was not worth the time. I don't know if I can make risotto in my rice maker. That would make this an instant 5 star. We really liked it mainly because it already included our vegetable servings and the sausage/veggie combo was delicious. I think I'll do this again maybe just using basmatti rice or quinoa and see how it turns out. No photo this time. My camera froze and I lost everything during the reset.

Bowties with Italian Sausage in a Cream Basil Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2013
This is the only pasta recipe I usually make. We can't afford to eat pasta very much - so when we do I have to make sure it is a GREAT recipe! The sweet Italian sausage makes it worth all of the carbs!

Coconut Avocado Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
This was good. I used my keifer instead of yogurt. I have made a similar recipe with banana to sweeten and thicken it - like a pudding. I ended up using two avocados, and increased the cream of coconut just a smidge. The first time I went looking for cream of coconut I had a heck of a time. FYI for those of you still to go to the store - it's by the margarita mixes.

Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I don't like the smell of cooked broccoli but I was so pleasantly surprised at how good this was. We left the cheese off to eat it with curry, then added to cheese to use it as a side for left overs during the week. Great both ways!!!

Warm and Limey Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
great salad. thanks! I didn't have golden raisins but used craisins. I used baby spinach instead because I had it on hand. YUMMY salad! I used another dressing for a lime strawberry salad that was poppy seed but I added strawberries to the dressing as well. Basically I took ingredients I had on hand and made this recipe work in conjunction with another one. Worked perfectly.. I am not very creative so I need these recipes to help me get started. Thanks again!

Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
Delicious. this will become a regular with our dinners. We never eat mashed potatoes due to the starch and carbs. But THIS . . . well this is so good! I whipped it until smooth in my vitamix. I also added a bit more cream cheese, maybe another tablespoon, and a bit of cream. I used shaved parmesan as well as grated. The grated really brought out the parmesan flavor, so I'm not sure that using the shaved added anything. I just had some in my refrigerator and thought I'd use it. The grated is much stronger. Bottom line, I am making this regularly from now on!! YAY!! it's like we get mashed potatoes again! NO starches or carbs!

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
great salad! I added strawberries to the dressing. I left out the peas. I added craisins and mandarin oranges. Basically, it was this recipe combined with another recipe I took the parts that looked the best to me. I'm not creative so I need these recipes to get me started!!

Rachel's Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
We loved this soup. I had to use dried basil so I put it in at the very beginning and let it cook with the tomatoes for thirty minutes or so. Following some advice from other reviewers I decided to add the TBSP of brown sugar. I have had better tomato basil - so next time I will pay attention to it's flavor a little bit better so that I can compare. Texture was smooth. I hate tomatoes and tomato soup out of a can. Tomato basil - I LOVE. Good recipe!
