Easy Weeknight Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
We LOVED this. I also breaded the chicken using the milk, flour, egg and bread crumb combo thanks to the suggestion in a previous review (Colorado Trio); I used chicken breasts but sliced them into three pieces or so before I breaded. We ate this meal without the spaghetti because we stay away from too many carbs. I had plenty of chicken, we had a salad on the side and it was yummy! I didn't add anything extra to the sauce. This is going to be a regular during the school year! Easy and delicious.

The Best Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
I loved these! So much easier to make than I would have guessed. I made sure to drop my apples in boiling water for a bit and dry them off really well, letting them get nice and cool before i dipped them in the caramel. I think I over cooked the caramel just a tad - I did not have a candy thermometer! But I used a knife and cut slices and it was every bit as delicious and not as messy! LOL I used Karo Light Corn Syrup, but I think i would like to try it with Karo Dark syrup.

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!

Green Chile Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
I tried this for the first time at Diana's house (a fellow all recipes member) after I brought back some fresh green chile from New Mexico. It was delicious. When I got home, I made it for my husband, adding a total of 1 1/2 cups of fresh green chile. After reading plenty of reviews, I also added red and orange peppers, onions, bacon, and used half ricotta and half cottage. I also used fresh spinach cooked in some of the grease from the sausage from a local butcher. The butter I used was homemade, and I used it to cook some mushrooms which I also added. I needed to put a lot of substance into it for a healthy, FILLING, main dish. I did not use a crust and the pie came out beautifully as well as the small muffins I made and gave away. My husband LOVED it!

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!

Moist and Savory Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2012
After reading all of the reviews, I decided I would add more broth - and a can of cream of mushroom soup. I threw in a little sage and used onion, celery, AND sausage. We really liked it.

1-Dish Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
We really liked this! I used too much sauce because I accidentally poured it on the dough before. I also breaded the chicken using a milk/egg/flour and bread crumb mixture before I cooked it. And my dog stole some of the chicken - so we didn't have the appropriate ratio of dough to chicken, sauce etc. I am definitely using this recipe again, keeping my dog out of the kitchen and pouring the sauce on LAST!

Caramel Corn Treat Bags

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
I used an air popper with a half cup of popcorn. We thought the caramel corn was really good! Not too crunch but not so chewy that our jaws hurt. . . My husband and I do not eat a lot of sugar, and I really thought I would have to give most of this away at my work place or to my sister in law who lives in our basement. But no, my husband said, as he was finishing off the last of it, "Too bad this caramel corn is so $%*& good!" I am going to use this recipe as my staple caramel corn recipe, but I might use a bit less popcorn than my 1/2 cup - it was a little hard to coat all the popcorn.

Lamb Feta Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Lamb is a bit of a unique taste, but my husband loves it so I tried these peppers. I used double the sausage and less rice. I diced the tops of the peppers and added them to the stuffing. He loved it! He said it was the best meal he has had in a long time. Next time I will take another reviewer's suggestion and use quinoa instead of rice, and will use a can or two of stewed tomatoes instead of the sauce. I had plenty of stuffing - not enough sauce or peppers, due to doubling the sausage. I did cook the peppers for a few minutes first in salt water. We like them a bit softer. This one is a Keeper!

Breakfast Quiches to Go

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
We really loved this. I used fresh kale and have since made it by adding peppers and onions and more meat - sausage and bacon - I even threw in some green chile. As a result, two packages of the rolls are not enough. I have had to make them crust - less before but that has worked too. Easy - and quick. And the filling froze really well and fresh hot quiches quite easily . . . just take the filling out of the freezer the night before!

Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
My husband and I really enjoyed this one - a nice variety from the same old grilled chicken. I also cut the sausage into smaller pieces and doubled the amount in order to make the salad more of a main dish with some substance to it.

Apple-Cranberry Crisp by PAM®

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
I used Honeycrisp apples because they are my favorite. I really love the way it turned out - and I added twice as many cranberries. Turned out really well. We loved it. One of the best crisp recipes I've found. Even without vanilla ice cream.

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.

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.

I made this recipe using Johnsonville Italian Sweet Sausage. My husband and I loved it! I think the 'sausage loaf' is a new favorie.

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!
