Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Loved. My daughter loved making these with me- we added an entire bag of Nestle semi-sweet chips. Turned out delicious.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
This was a great basic recipe. I'm a huge white bean fan but had never once made them from dry. It was a cinch! After the 60 minutes of soaking, I returned the beans to a boil, added the remaining ingredients and left in my slow cooker for several hours on low. The carrots were tender, the celery and onions were perfect. Kids and hubby loved. I did add a teaspoon of italian seasoning which gave a nice flavor.

Chef John's Minestrone Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
Wow. What a big soup indeed. Not only did my husband offer the unprovoked, "this is the best soup I've ever had," there were clean bowls at the end of the meal- four of them. The significance? My children ate vegetables- and liked it. First of all, I'm one of these cooks that shamefully can't leave well enough alone and cannot, will not, has not, ever left a recipe as is. It's not in my genes. Graciously, Chef John gives us all creative license in his video to waver from the recipe and I did. So, let me tell you what I changed, mostly due to what I had on hand and wanted to use up, and also because I'm pretty sure I was in the wrong grocery store to find "cranberry beans." I used frozen chopped onions- (I know, but it's what I had) two 14 oz cans diced tomatoes, 1 can small white navy beans in lieu of the cranberries, and a large bunch of romaine lettuce instead of swiss chard and cabbage. I refused to pay $4.99 for the chard and I forgot to buy the cabbage. I did throw in about a half cut of large carrot dices that held up well, and fresh green beans cut into 1/2 in pieces. Lovely. That being said, everything else I left untouched- except- I did cut a bit of the parm rind and throw it in while it simmered- awesome call. It was amazing. We had a beautiful loaf of three cheese garlic bread from our local bakery to dredge up the beautiful sauce between hearty bites. I will be placing this recipe in my PERMANENT collection, and you should too.

Orange Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
This was really good- my entire family liked it. The rosemary and orange were a great pair. I used dried chives, and fresh rosemary because that's what I had on hand. I blended it all in my small food processor and marinated overnight in a plastic bag. It was super tender. When I added cornstarch it really thickened up quickly and I did have to thin a little with orange juice, but turned out great. The sauce got a little dark under the broiler- was tasty. I could see serving this over rice with a little extra sauce. Will be making again.
