French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
Loved it, then modified it according to what I had on hand. Used all yellow onions, and all turkey stock that I had just made and needed to use. Also I used sherry- personal preference for this soup. Will make again and double for the hubsters ton take to work. Baddabing delicious.

Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
Delicious... Never want to buy dressing again! This is a very forgiving recipe for substitutions. We didn't have sour cream or plain yogurt, so we used all mayo.

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
A great recipe for family gatherings. Be careful to keep the temp. And simmer time down just before and after adding the cream to avoid curdling.

Slow Cooker Venison Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
This dish was a great way to use a tough venison roast we had in the oven. It does not highlight the gamey flavor of venison- one user complained about that... but Sloppy Joes aren't a dish I would choose to bring out the flavor of meat. My 2 year old helped me pull it apart after 8 hours of cooking (he ate most of what he got his hands on), Made some homemade buns, and enjoyed this thoroughly. Mega yummy.

Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
I used the recommendation to omit the cheese and bullion and add one cup of peanut butter instead. I recommend mixing in an electric mixer since it's a thick dough. I used pie crust decorator cut-outs (stars, chickens, mini ginger bread man...) I rated this recipe 4 stars because they're not super healthy for a dog's natural diet. They came out as a great consistency and held together beautifully. I gifted them to friends with dogs for Christmas.

Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Tasted just like a Reuben, but I highly recommend keeping in a small crock pot or other heated serving tray. The cheese hardened and turned my dip into a brick within 15 minutes of coming out of the oven.

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I doubled this recipe for leftovers. I used homemade turkey stock instead of bullion/water, and I also used turkey sausage. The kale came out of my garden and I used two different kinds- curly leaf and flat leaf that had lots of purple in it. It added nice variation of texture and color; I recommend it if you have different kinds available. One modification I would recommend is adding the cream once the soup is removed from the heat. Mine curdled a little from the high heat, and it was only at a gentle simmer. I also cooked the sausages in a pan over the stove- but that's not a real biggie as far as modifications go.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I thought this recipe did a slight injustice to sweet potatoes; they're so naturally sweet and wholesome, and the recipe detracted from their natural deliciousness rather than added to it. The recipe went over very well with the majority of my Easter guests, but from several different people I was told that it got sickish sweet after too many bites. I will definitely use this recipe as a base for any sweet potato casserole in the future. I will cut the white sugar and the butter in half. For the topping, I'll use less brown sugar, more nuts, and a more flour based struesel topping.

Venison and Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
My husband said this is reminiscent of sloppy-Joes. Our whole family, including our 15 mo. son, LOVED it. I didn't have pork and beans, so I substituted a 16 oz can of off-brand baked beans instead, and I also substituted a 15.5 oz can of black beans since I didn't have the great Northern beans. It is a little sweet, but it's a very rich and satisfying main dish. This recipe is very forgiving with substitutions, and the sugar could definitely be reduced for the more carb conscious individuals without any flavor sacrifice. If the gamey flavor bothers someone in your household, have them try this recipe- it covers up a lot of that strong game flavor.

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
The recipe turned out to be much more moist than I originally anticipated- which was GOOD thing! I mixed it all up ahead of time, and put it in a casserole dish to bake at our cabin. I fed it to some picky eaters, and they seemed to really enjoy it. I would make this my go-to recipe for artichoke spinach dip.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
This was a very cozy meal for a cold weeknight! I used about 4 cups of chicken leftover from a roasted chicken 2 nights before which added a lot of rich flavor. I'm always looking for ways to make my recipes healthier since my husband has high cholesterol, so I cut out the cheese entirely in the layers, adding only a sprinkle on top for aesthetics. General consensus was that it did not detract from the meal ONE BIT. I also used half-fat sour cream to bring down the saturated fat a notch. Next time I make this recipe (it has already been requested that I do!!) I'm going to use fat-free Greek yogurt, and a reduced fat/sodium soup. It can still be delicious while being more kind to your heart!!
