Marinated Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
Loved this marinade! I was looking for a creative way to use some of the plum jam that I made last year and this looked interesting. I followed the recipe exactly for the ingredients, but used pork chops instead of a pork tenderloin. Grilled outside . . .perfect spring/summer food! We'll definitely be having this again!

Paleo Oatmeal (Not Really Oatmeal At All)

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2014
My daughter and son-in-law eat Paleo for health reasons. . . Wanting to spoil them a bit, I did most of the cooking during my recent visit. I have been wanting to try this recipe for a month or so. . . . I followed it exactly and used Granny Smith apples. This "oatmeal" took some time to put together, but was well worth the effort. It was a delicious comfort food, perfect for a cold winter morning! Will definitely be making this again.

Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2014
My husband LOVES the zuppa Tuscani soup at Olive Garden, so I was thrilled when I found this recipe! I must say that I never followed it exactly. Instead, I made mine according to the changes recommended by Jobbly Man (thanks!) It was excellent! The second time I made it, my husband suggested we leave out the bacon. It wasn't missed. This is a regular for us now!

Skillet Apples with Cinnamon

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
I wanted something to go with homemade cinnamon ice cream. This fit the bill! It is like apple pie without the crust (perfect for company with gluten issues ) and didn't have to turn on the oven. I used this recipe for inspiration -- 10 Granny Smith apples, 1/8 cup ghee (clarified butter), maple syrup, cinnamon, and apple pie spice to taste. This would also be great in oatmeal.

Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
I had a bag of black beans and used this recipe to prepare them. We enjoyed them as a side dish the first night. I also used them drained over a green salad and in a Bean Bean Chili recipe from this site. Great depth of flavor! Definitely a Keeper!

Sweet Cornbread Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
Yum! I didn't choose this recipe for it's healthy nature, but because my husband likes sweet cornbread. It delivered! Made it for New Year's Day to go with black-eyed peas and cabbage. Neighbors also loved it.

Tuscan White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
Excellent soup! I tweaked a bit . . . Used a pound of dried small white beans (soaked and cooked) and a 12-oz. package of bacon. Left out celery and wine. Did not blend or use the basil topping. This is a soup I will make frequently!

Pumpkin Oatmeal

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
Tweaked this recipe a bit -- used 2% milk instead of soy milk and puréed fresh pumpkin. Sweetened with maple syrup and brown sugar. It was ok.

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
I grew sugar pumpkins in order to make pies for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, they didn't ripen in time. . . So, I now have pumpkin to use for other things. We've never had pumpkin soup before. This is an excellent -- smooth, rich and flavorful . I did change it up a bit (inspired by Craig's a Pumpkin Soup recipe)-- I sauted the onion and garlic in a pat of butter and small amount of olive oil. I added grated carrots and potatoes and sauted about 5 minutes. Added the stock, thyme, salt and pepper and simmered for about 20 minutes. Added cooked/puréed pumpkin and dash of nutmeg until heated through. Blended, simmered, added combo of half & half and 2% milk. Delicious !

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
After a week of quick meals, I was in the mood to cook and to try something new. The email featuring this recipe caught my attention. The only changes I made were to use only lemon juice from a bottle (it was all I had) and substituted 1 t. of Penzey's Spices Ozark Style Seasoning for salt and pepper. This was delicious served with brown rice and sauted zucchini. Keeper!

Best Ever Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
The only reason I even looked for a different meatloaf recipe was that I lacked the tomato sauce needed for my old meatloaf (I've been making the same recipe from a cookbook printed in 1963) for at least 34 years. What a surprise it was to eat THIS meatloaf! Taste, texture and sauce are awesome! I will not be making my old recipe ever again. BTW I used a combination of ground venison, beef and pork. Everything else was as written.

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
I had puréed sugar pumpkin that I wanted to use to make something new. . . I combined this recipe with Lea Ogawa's Pumpkin Soup recipe from this site. I sauted onion, garlic, grated carrots and grated potatoes in a butter/olive oil mixture for about 5 minutes. Added bouillon, pumpkin, fresh thyme and pepper. Simmered about 30 minutes. Used blender (about a cup at a time) til smooth. Returned to pot. Added a combination of half & half and 2% milk (eyeballed it). Heated through. It was delicious!

Zucchini Galore

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013

Garlic Herbed Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
I used fresh tarragon from my garden and boneless chicken thighs. As per another review, I added a touch of wine vinegar (acid) and marinated my chicken for about an hour before grilling. Excellent!

This is a fun, fresh summer salad. I needed some inspiration for a way to use an abundance of leaf lettuce from the garden. My husband even liked it.
