Mushroom and Swiss Burger

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
Don't hate me cuz really though I changed it just a bit it was just a recipe misunderstanding. I cooked up the burger and then added everything to it so it was this luscious scoopable goodness. I put it on whole wheat toast with some provolone cheese and wow, is this stuff good!!! Oh and I skipped the MSG-don't have any and it doesn't seem like a good idea.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
I cooked it for only 2.5 hour and it was perfect! The hardest thing about cooking a delicious pot roast is the timing and so I'm glad I got that down. Otherwise the seasoning was spot-on for some excellent gravy!!! I did substitute beef broth for the vermouth and I skipped the butter and just did a once around with the olive oil bottle. YUMMMMMMY!!!

French Onion Soup IV

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
JACKPOT! SIMPLY DELICIOUS!!! I am swooning over the broth right now and impatiently waiting for the next 45 minutes to pass so that I can PIG OUT!!! I know it's going to be sooooo awesome!!! the flavors are perfect and they will just deepen and get richer and when I put on croutons and some provolone cheese...HEAVENLY!!! I could not for the life of me get some beef consomme in stock at the 3 grocery stores I went to so I finally made the decision to put my brain to good use and figure out an alternative...just use more beef broth or...AU JUS GRAVY MIX!!! Yes! I bought 2 of the store brand of Au Jus Gravy Mix that makes 2 cups of Au Jus each. Just added it according to package directions with the other ingredients (minus the water)and lots of pepper! Also I had to add 2 more onions. One just didn't seem right. I TELL YOU THIS STUFF IS GONNA ROCK MY FREEZING COLD MN SOCKS OFF AND I CAN'T WAIT!!!!! Thank you hubby for your oh-so-humble recipe!!!

Jersey Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
WOOOHOOO!!! Score! I am going the vegetarian route and this soup just looked so good I had to try it. I did modify a bit hoping it would turn out and it sure did!!!! I chopped up two large carrots and 1 good-sized onion. I boiled all that in 2 cups of chicken broth for half an hour and then blended it totally in my Vitamix. I then poured it back into my soup pot and added 2 cans (15 oz each) of tomato sauce-a Sams club oops that I've been trying to use for the last 6 months!!! I added 1.5 c of homemade almond milk (not sweet like the store-bought kind) and added the seasonings, leaving out the salt, sugar, butter and flour. WOW!!! I am going to make this again, doubling the batch for freezing (leaving out the almond milk) because it is awesome and will make such a beautiful quick meal when I need it!!!!

Tofu Vindaloo

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
Oh wow, thank you sidnam!!! I was so excited when I saw this recipe and the positive reviews! My daughter and I love Indian food and though I've tried many times to make something delicious at home (with an Indian flavor) I have been seriously unable!!! YOUR RECIPE IS TOTAL SUCCESS!!! I did sautee my mushrooms with the veggies in the beginning and I only used one good sized onion. I also used 6 cloves of garlic as we love, love, love garlic and it's so good for you! And I had to use lite coconut milk cuz...well, healthy eating dictates it!!! Otherwise I followed the recipe to a T!!! I will say that I did end up buying an American-looking curry powder. I believe that success and failure will depend largely on that one ingredient. Some have mentioned that it's bland. I agree if you mean non-spicy-hot! But for me and my simple tastebuds it was just perfect. I figured my hubby who likes spicy food can just add a squirt of sriracha and call it a day! But otherwise this is seriously flavorful goodness! My daughter is at college right now but I can't wait for her to come home so I can show off my new skills...all thanks to sidnam!!!

Beef and Cabbage Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
ok, is it fair to give this 5 stars when I didn't follow the recipe? I just had to because this soup is so delicious and soooooo good for us!!! I used 1 pound of beef, 15 oz tomato sauce, 6 cups of beef broth, 4 large handful of coleslaw mix (Sam's club), 2 large carrots, 1 onion, 1 c each of frozen green beans and corn and salt and pepper...and one tsp of sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes. OH WOW! simple, delicious, hearty, healthy goodness in a bowl. Exactly what I want my family to eat to nourish themselves!!! the twenty minutes of simmering are almost up and the troops are starting to circle!!! I've taste-tested a little bowl already and I can hardly wait for more!!!!

Strawberry-Pineapple Smoothie

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
oh wow is this good!!! I am a smoothie girl. Smoothies are that rare edible that can be as healthy (and still delicious) as you want or can be just pure sugar and satisfy that craving you have for something "bad for you." This one fits both bills at the same time. I used frozen strawberries, a small can of crushed pineapple, plain unflavored yogurt (and I added a splash of vanilla to compensate), skipped the ice cubes (its the middle of winter and I am tast-testing smoothie recipes to make up a recipe book for all my nieces for Christmas and I actually like thick smoothies and without the ice cubes this was the perfect consistency to me)and added 1 T ground flax seed which makes every smoothie good for me!!! LOVE IT!!!

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
wow!!! SO DELICIOUS! so I always read the reviews. at least a good 25 or so anyways, you get a real feel for the recipe I think. Anyways, these meatballs are ROCKIN!!!! Ok, seriously, yes, it takes 15 minutes more to make your own meatballs than it does to just buy a bag of frozen at the grocery store, but REALLY! if you knew how the food industry has cut corners to bring you the cheapest, unhealthiest possible for your "CONVENIENCE" I think you might change your mind about all that junk! Off of my soapbox though, I just ate one of the best meals we've had in a long time! I diced up three carrots and used a very large green pepper and so mine was heavy on the veggies but that's how I justify ground beef, so whatever. I left out the onions in the meatballs I find they only make the meatballs fall apart and I added a tsp of onion and garlic powder. I also don't add breadcrumbs or oatmeal to meatballs as that really just absorbs the fat from the burger and I'd just rather leave that on the baking pan. Also I did not add sugar to my meatballs...I'm sorry, that just seems gross to me...I like my sugar in the sauce on the outside of the meatball, thank you very much ;) Anyways, make double the meatballs and freeze half because you are going to want this meal again very soon and that part will be done. I can't wait to make this again. I'm going to double up all the prep work and freeze half of the entire so that I can whip this up very quickly midweek. THE WHOLE FAMILY LOVED IT

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
decadent and delicious. hailed as "all-time best-tasting cupcake" by three different family friends from three different families. I have been searching for the perfect cupcakes to serve at a bridal shower and so I wanted non-family reviews for some honesty! I read through a vast amount of reviews and decided to skip crystalized ginger. I increased ginger powder to 1 tsp. I used seasonal Jello pumpkin spice pudding and 3 eggs. They were not light and fluffy for sure. Very moist and somewhat dense. I filled each muffin liner to just below the top and got exactly 24 cupcakes. These are absolutely perfect without any frosting IMHO but per husband's request I used a simple cream cheese frosting of 5 T butter, 8 0z. creamcheese (1/3 less fat), 2 cups of powdered sugar, 2 t. vanilla and 1/2 t. cinnamon. holy buckets...I am still on the search for the other 2 flavors of cupcakes but THESE HAVE MADE THE LIST...for life!!! sorry, one last thing. Baked for 27 minutes and they were perfect!!!

Sweet Cornbread Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I halved this recipe as its just me and hubby now. I have searched and searched for the perfect cornbread muffin and this is it!!! Cake is right! Sooo lovely you're going to want to take the whole pan and a bowl of honey butter and just make it all disappear! I used half cup of Splenda and 1/4 cup reg. sugar. I think I'll go one step further and do 1/4 cup Splenda. I was worried that I had somehow mistranslated the numbers when halving because it was very runny and loose and nothing like what cornbread usually looks like but it baked up perfectly in my toaster oven and now I'm just waiting for hubby to get home so that I don't eat it all! Oh I also used 1 c. cornmeal and 1 c. flour. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Seafood Creole

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
Holy buckets, this stuff is SOOO GOOD!!! I am from the landlocked Midwest and really only get seafood occasionally at Red Lobster-so tragic I know! This was only my second attempt at cooking with seafood but somehow I stumbled across this recipe...oh that's right my Joe's Crabshack closed and I really wanted crawfish etouffee...anyways, once I read the ingredient list and the reviews I was craving this dish. I was so excited and unsure and hungry...LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! To think that I bought frozen uncooked medium shrimp, uncooked baby scallops and frozen tilapia fillets and it tastes phenomenal!!! FROM WALMART!!! I also used a can of mild rotel diced tomatoes in place of fresh tomatoes and cut the heat in half. I simmered without a lid for 25 minutes to reduce the liquid and added the thawed seafood for 10 minutes. I just threw in the whole fish fillets and after ten minutes they fell apart. Hubby exclaimed that the shrimp were cooked to perfection and he wished he had a whole bowl of just shrimp...I told him we can work it out. In the end I used about a pound and a half of seafood and we had something in every lovin' spoonful! Hubby has requested that we add the whole 3 pounds next time. He is not a tomato-y, brothy, soupy, rice kind of guy but he's already informed me that he's taking the leftovers to work tomorrow...good thing I already have a lunch date or we woulda had to wrestle for it ;)!!!! This will be on our regular menu rotation from here on out!!!

I used beef and left out the spices and seasonings I think were meant to go with lamb. I also just topped with mashed potatoes. Delish.

Refreshing Peach Sangria

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
Wow! I'm glad I've tried several sangria recipes so I can give a comparative review. I love this stuff! I've made heavy, boozy delicious sangrias appropriate for summertime weekend PAR-TAYS!!!! and I've made light, boozy delicious peachy sangrias appropriate for a girls night in of party-planning and now I have this 3rd option in my back pocket ;) This stuff is perfect for a lunch date with the girls when you still have to be able to drive home and get dinner on the table for your crew. It's light, refreshing and won't get anyone smashed! Exactly like what you get from the restaurant chains on their 2-fer-1s! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! (UPDATE: I asked a friend to bring the OJ and she brought blueberry juice instead-guess what! still delish, different but sooooo good and SO SO SO PRETTY!!! just can't go wrong)

Brunch Egg Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
REALLY FABULOUS! I have a thing about cheese...it should be optional in all things in my opinion and so my little family has had to learn to just add some to whatever they want. so...I didn't add any cheese. also I didn't sautee the veggies first, I just chopped up fresh mushrooms, green onions, green peppers and deli turkey. I whipped up the egg part, poured it in the pan threw the vegetables and turkey over the top, added some ground pepper and baked it. REALLY FABULOUS! it was just one of those nights where I seem to get everything backwards but fortunately this egg bake with some toast and a glass of milk made a really, really REALLY FABULOUS dinner!

Pub-Style Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
woohoo!!! homerun! my family has just started the vegetarian journey and when I heard "you know what would be really good? chili!" I came here, selected this recipe and wow, it is fabulous!!! followed along pretty well-added TVP rehydrated in beef broth and used beef broth instead of water (only 1 cup instead of 2), skipped the wine and rinsed my beans. I also used one can of tomato sauce (15 oz) instead of the whole tomatoes. IT SMELLS AWESOME AND TASTES EVEN BETTER!!! so thankful for good food that's really, really good for our bodies! it's been almost a month and I DON'T MISS MEAT AT ALL!!!

Cranberry Orange Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I considered lessening the stars because there should really be mention that the orange juice should be warmed to help the yeast but oh well...read your breadmachine manual and you will find that information out for yourself. It makes a dense, delicious loaf and I've since modified it by trading one cup of bread flour for whole wheat, adding 1/4 c ground flax seed and 1 T vital wheat gluten. It is a real treat!!!
