Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2015
Delish. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable because I'm not a veg broth lover. I used frozen spinach because that's what I had. It was still delicious and I can only imagine that fresh would have been amazing. I added rough-chopped carrots and celery which only added to the yumness. Easy and yummy recipe!!

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2015
This was plain but good. It almost seemed a bit dry with only one can of soup, but I wouldn't put in another because then it would be waaaay too soupy. I did add a handful of craisins and would have added a bit of french fried onions but I didn't have them (I thought I did). A good simple meal, very quick to make, and everyone liked it. Will make again, next time making sure I have those danged french fried onions!!!

Garlic-Herb Roast Pork

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2014
Oh my gosh. SO good. The paste was to die for. It cooked a LOT longer than the recipe said but that may be because I had potatoes roasting in the oven as well. Will DEFINITELY make again, and may use the paste for other things too.

Christmas Morning Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2014
This was quite good! Much easier than my previous breakfast casserole. I used Sara Lee Texas Toast and a couple of extra eggs. I also used shredded chedder instead of American cheese. I only had lunch cut Black Forest Ham which I cut up and still, this was a winner!!!

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2014
Pretty good. Quite easy. Tastes as expected. Maybe adding green onion on top would be good.

Mom's Candied Yams with Caramel

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
SOOO good! Luckily I had extra potatoes in the cabinet because one can did NOT cut it, so I tripled he recipe and everything in it except the pineapple because I only had two cans. I figured it couldn't hurt to cut back on the pineapple because there's a LOT of sweet going on in this recipe and I was right. It turned out PERFECT. Don't be scared ... for whatever reason this was not too sweet ... it was JUST PERFECT and it will be my go-to recipe for now on!

Quick and Easy Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
Wow wow wow!!! This was awesome! I doubled the recipe but didn't double the bacon (I just didn't have it). I substituted chix broth for the water (so used 4 cans broth for a double recipe, and no water). I used low sodium beans. The bacon was unappealingly floating around so I used the immersion blender instead of a masher, and I made it quite smooth. I didn't make the relish but I did serve it with green onions and a big dollop of plain Greek yogurt. I can't believe how delicious this soup was! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!!!!

Easy Pork Chops Dijon

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2014
OMG, this was amazing! Given the limited ingredients I figured it'd be just "okay" but boy was I wrong! SO SO delicious! Next time I will double the sauce/onion because that sauce was SO good that we are all scraping the pan with our fingers for just a bit more. Even my 15 year old, who supposedly doesn't like onions, took more than her share (of onions!).

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2014
This was really good. I only used half of a jalapeno and I used 2 country style pork ribs, cut with fat trimmed off, instead of the ham and bacon. Subbed 2 cans of broth and then used water to make up the 6 cups. No buillion. It turned out still spicy but not too much. SO delicious! Will definitely make again.

Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
Totally yum! I didn't have panko so I used Italian flavored breadcrumbs. The chicken still was delicious and moist! I used Monterey Jack instead of mozzerella (again, that's what I had). The recipe was a good starting point and my lack-of-on-hand ingredients didn't hurt it at all.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
Oh my gosh! This was delicious! Made the recipe exactly as written except that I added one cup of cooked noodles at the end and I used low sodium broth which I will definitely do next time. Next time I'll change the beans ... maybe cannellini ??....... as the great northern beans got mushy. Nevertheless this soup had the BEST flavor and the proportions were dead on (don't be afraid that it won't be soupy enough ... 2 cans of broth ended up to be perfect). Vote BEST SOUP in my house which says a lot since I make some really good soups!!! EDIT. Tried cannellini beans, still were mushy. I didn't like the taste. I will try again with the called for beans, adding the last 5 minutes or so.

Clementine's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
Very good. A LOT of chips ... I might cut down next time. Also, I tried to make "crunchy/crispy" cookies but those were more like "dry." Next time I"ll cook for the minimum time.

Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
This was very good but VERY hot! I added a lot more honey to try to counter the hot .... next time (I will make it again) I will decrease the chili sauce by half and then taste the sauce and add more as needed. I didn't have time to marinade so I made the sauce and basted the chicken throughout the cooking process and then had extra to pour over our rice. Very tasty.

Chap Chee Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
This was good, but not 5-star good. I have no idea what this is "supposed to" taste like. I used chicken instead of beef because that is what I had to use up. I felt that maybe there were too many noodles. I may try again with beef and cutting down on the noodles.

Jimmy's Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2013
Really good. I doubled the recipe but did not double the beans and tomatoes. There were definitely enough beans in one can to make four 8" pizzas. I only had two tomatoes which was fine also since most of the tomato taste comes from the salsa anyway. They tasted great and were very pretty. Thanks Jimmy!

Kielbasa Kale Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2013
I loved this. I used "Better than Bouillon" in the potato cooking water/soup water and was glad I did. Because of that I omitted adding additional salt. I added a can of cannelloni beans and instantly regretted it because they were pretty mushy, right out of the can..... so I used my hand blender and blended the beans and the potatoes so they became smooth and disappeared in the stew.... that made it SO thick and yummy (and I loved the bean taste without actually eating beans) that I think I'll do that next time ... in fact I may leave out the potatoes next time and use two cans of beans, blended, to get the same effect without all the potato calories/carbs. Again, really good.

Hearty Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I really didn't like this too much. I must admit that what I turned out definitely looked different than the photos. I think the potatoes I used were the wrong type (Russet, which is what I had) and on top of that they got overcooked. I got a gluey, starchy, gravy-like consistency. The corn literally saved the meal, adding a bit of crunch. I won't make again.

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
I made this with Cream of Mushroom (didn't have Cream of Chicken on hand) and panko bread crumbs. This was really good! I had massive chicken breasts which, next time if they're so big, I'll cut in half longways. Still, the end result was moist and everybody really liked this.
