Quick Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2000
Very quick and very easy. I used diced, peeled canned tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes because that's all I had on hand, still quite tasty, and very filling!

Chicken and Bacon Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
This was a very tasty soup that my whole family gobbled up. I absolutely did not add any additional salt since I felt that the bacon and broth provided all the saltiness needed. I also added a bit more chicken broth in order to cover the vegetables better while they cooked. Great hearty soup on a cold winter day - be sure to have some crusty bread on the side to go with it!

Lattice Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
I loved it! However, I must confess that I did not even attempt to create a lattice crust since I was pressed for time- I used one can of buttermilk biscuits that peeled apart in layers and covered the top of the whole pie. I also used a combo of cream of celery soup and cream of chicken soup. My family really enjoyed it and everyone had seconds. The french fried onions definitely supplied the extra flavor and texture. Thanks for the great recipe!

Creamed Turkey with Bow Ties

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
Great recipe for leftover turkey- my family enjoyed this tremendously. I used a bag of mixed veggies instead of the mushrooms and carrots and everyone loved it. Makes a light yet flavorful sauce. Thanks!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
Wonderful recipe- definitely use a Bundt pan- and put foil or a pan underneath because it will bubble out and over the side of the pan. I left out the walnuts and raisins since my boys don't like them and it was a big hit! Nice presentation and it was fun to make. Thanks for the great recipe!

Almond Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Wow- this was a nice treat- very different from the usual casserole. I did make a few changes- instead of mayonnaise I used one 8oz block of cream cheese and added 1/2 cup of milk. I also sauteed the onion, celery, and chicken in white wine and butter before mixing it in with the rice. I also added peas and carrots to the mix to give it some extra veggies. Had to use a 9x13 pan instead of 8x8- this was a lot of food! The whole family loved it- we will definitely make this again. Thanks!

Southwestern Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
Great basic recipe that you can spring from: we added one can of white northern beans, chili powder, one small can of green chiles, oregano, cumin, and one can of diced tomatoes. We omitted the water since the canned stuff provided all the juice necessary. Cooked a pot of rice and mixed everything together into one fragrant stew. It was great and we ate it with tortilla chips- the whole family loved it! Thanks for the great recipe!

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2004
We LOVED this manicotti- all 8 of us wanted more! Some hints: we added merlot to spaghetti sauce and let simmer. Used fresh ground spices (basil, oregano, marjoram, italian parsley). Used a mix of ground beef and sicillian sausage, and a mix of ricotta and cottage cheese. You will LOVE this dish!!!

Ali's Amazing Bruschetta

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2004
Great recipe- however be sure to brush the bread with olive oil first- also I added minced garlic, salt and pepper to the tomato mixture for even more flavor. Very good on focaccia bread! Thanks Ali!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
I added peanut butter chips to the recipe and my husband (a connoisseur of peanut butter cookies) declared these to be the BEST. EVER. I didn't change anything else to the recipe, and they came out just perfectly, with full peanut butter flavor and great texture. Love!

Asparagus Chicken Divan

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
I'm rating this recipe as 5 stars based on the following modifications: sautee chopped onions and mushrooms (added by me), and seasoned chicken (greek seasoning, salt, pepper) in olive oil and white wine, then add soup, worcestercshire, about 1/4 cup mayo, nutmeg, and some garlic powder (no cream!). Mix in the blanched asparagus, then mix in parmesan cheese. Pour the whole thing into a casserole dish, top with a sprinkling of cheese and bake at 375 for about 25 minutes. Serve over rice - it was sooo tasty and my whole family devoured it.

Dump Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
This was surprisingly good, and VERY sweet- I might cut back on the sugar next time. I used a can of strawberry pie filling and extra cinnamon, and it was so moist and sweet it did not need icing. A great recipe to experiment with!

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2006
WONDERFUL recipe! I put in about 1 1/4 cups of sour cream to make it a bit more moist. Also- mix the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture with some melted butter to form a soft crumble. I put some of the crumble in the bottom of a bundt pan, then 1/2 the batter, then more crumble, then the rest of the batter. Baked it for 55 minutes- it came out beautifully and it was a big hit! Thanks for the great recipe!

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
Great recipe! I didn't have sausage on hand so I used diced chicken breasts that I sauteed with the garlic and onion- then added red bell pepper strips and used a bag of frozen california blend veggies instead fresh sicne I was pressed for time. The family enjoyed it very much! The addition of the boullion cubes was right on- gave the flavor extra depth. I will be making this again, thanks!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
Fantastic! Make sure to puree an additional can of beans to thicken up the mixture, and cut out one can of broth. I omitted the jalapenos and it still had a nice, delectable kick to it. Sauteed the chicken with the spices and garlic, onions, and chiles, then combined it with the bean mixture. Served with hot french bread on a cold rainy day- a big hit at my house!

Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
This was very good, although I did alter the recipe a bit to make it healthier. I used 3 cups skim milk and 2 cups of chicken broth, then added my potatoes, corn (a mixture of sweet corn and regular corn), and spices. I sauteed the onion with cut up chicken breasts, then added that to the soup. I also added several dashes of thyme, oregano, and onion powder. If you let this soup simmer for about an hour, the potatoes become mealy and thicken the soup tremendously without having to use heavy cream as the thickener. I felt that it needed quite a bit of pepper, which was nicely offset by the sweet corn. My whole family enjoyed this chowder and I'll gladly make it again.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
Delicious, moist, flavorful! Substituted 1 cup of brown sugar for white sugar, used about 3 cups shredded zucchini. Big hit with the family, so easy to make! Did take a solid hour to bake. Happy I tried it!

Chicken or Turkey Tetrazzini Deluxe

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
This was great! I absolutely did not add the water - it wasn't necessary. Aside from cutting the amounts in half since this recipe serves 12, I followed the rest of the recipe pretty much exactly and we were very happy with the results. Tasty, hearty, and satisfying!

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
Oh my GOSH these cookies are good! You won't be disappointed with this recipe- I got crisp and chewy gingersnaps that were a huge hit with my family. I suggest baking them for a couple of minutes longer and also it helps to butter your hands lightly before handling the dough. Thanks Marie for this family favorite!!! :)
