Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
I had problems with this receipe as is. I doubled the sauce/tomato mixture but left the pasta the same. Problem was, it was a bit bland and I could definitely see where wine might have added the "something missing." Also I'd try something other than angel hair if I made it again (just a personal preference). Husband wasn't crazy about it ... probably won't try again.

Chicken and Apple Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
WOW! This was SO good. I used one can of coconut milk and one can of broth. I used 1 1/2 TBS of curry and could have definitely used more (I ran out). Used 6 breasts which we cut into bite-sized pieces. The proportion of chicken/sauce was just right. Served with mashed potatoes (b/c we had eaten rice the two nights before I served this) and it ROCKED! I will serve w/mashed again for sure. Served with broccoli on side. Wonderful easy dish.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Apparently i'm in the minority here.... I don't see anything special about this fried rice. There aren't even spices in it, except for the soy sauce. Also, BEWARE.... this makes MASSIVE amounts. I could have halved this receipe and still had left over.

Homemade Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Pretty good. Cooked wontons separately and then added to soup. Add at very end otherwise they'll get overcooked. Even better, keep on side and let individuals add to their own broth. Mine got totally overcooked in the hot broth. The 30 min. prep time is a joke! It took FOREVER (for two of us!) to make 60 wontons! Also, wonton meat mixture could have used more spices as it was quite bland .. to the point that my husband complained. Thats why 4 stars instead of 5.

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
These were okay. I didn't have an hour to wait and so I didn't. These were SO fat and weirdly lacking in taste. Maybe some more sugar? Maybe some vanilla? Something seemed to be missing, even with the blueberries. The kids enjoyed them tho, which is why I'm giving 4 stars, not 3.

Tater Tot Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
I had my 12 year old put this meal together and put it in the oven before we got home. The outcome was delicious, however not the healthiest meal in the world! Next time (and there will be a next time) I'll add 1/4C of milk to the soup/sour cream (to start) because the soup/sour cream mixture was quite thick and, once it started cooling down on the table, it started to congeal. My husband LOVED this which is weird b/c he doesn't "love" any food and in particular he's not much of a sour cream fan (he had no idea there was sour cream in this dish). I served w/a fried swiss chard & spinach mixture and I'm glad I did because all the richness needed a counterpoint. A salad would be good to serve with this also... this would also be a good side (except it makes a LOT) to a (healthy) meal. Very good!

Easy Bok Choy

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
I made this with one head of regular (not baby) bok choy and two cloves crushed garlic. It really wasn't enough so I added a bunch of spinich. It was SO simple and delicious, with and without the spinich. Will definitely make again.

Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
I made this with two minor changes: I used slivered almonds instead of cashews (I toasted them) and I added the ramen soup chicken flavor pack to the dressing. I don't really think the chicken flavoring made much of a difference so next time I'll try without. This was GREAT and super fast and easy to make... we will without a doubt make it again and again.

Summer Grilled Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Pretty darn good. Not earth shattering, but worth trying a second time for sure. I had 2 little cabbages; one I quartered and one I cut in eights. I I should have quartered them both.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
I made this receipe using what I had on hand: 2 med. yellow onions, 2 green peppers, 5 sausages, fresh herbs and red wine. The outcome was excellent! I'll use this recipe over and over! Could add another pepper.

Pan Fried Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Very good. Cooked as written except I used a previous reviewer's suggestion and cut up the stems as I would celery, boiled them in water until soft, and then added them to the leaves. Very lemony... next time I'll add the lemon gradually. Great way to use up Chard from the garden! Delicious served with quinoa/rice combination.

Ratatouille Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
I followed this recipe loosely with great results. I doubled the diced tomatoes and left out the paste. I used fresh herbs instead of dried. I let it cook for a while so the flavors would meld. I made an entire pound of pasta and spooned the mixture on top instead of baking it. I topped it with Romano. THE RESULTS WERE DELICIOUS! Thanks for a great starting point!

Pork Roast with Sauerkraut and Kielbasa

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Very good. Used a 5 lb pork roast, 4 lbs sauerkraut (2 bags), and one lb kielbasa. I also added a bottle of beer and I'm glad I did ... it added much-needed liquidity and there was NO beer taste at the time of serving. I might add even another bottle because the juice was to die for but there was not a whole lot of it. My crock pot worked fine for about 2 hours and then stopped working for about an hour before I realized it, so I dumped it all in a large stock pot and simmered it all on the stove for a few hours. Served w/homemade mashed potatoes and applesauce. Really really good. The kielbasa got pretty soft, so if I do it on the stove next time I'll add the kielbasa in halfway through the cooking time.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Good stuff and really easy to make. Used a bottle of dark beer instead of broth, and used Sweet Baby Ray's Spicy BBQ Sauce. Made fabulous sandwiches!!!

Summer Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
We really loved this recipe. I took the advice from another reviewer and used Cr. of Chix instead of Cr of Mush. My husband forgot to cover it so the croutons were crunchy which I actually liked. Maybe next time we'll cover it and uncover for apx 15-20 mins at the end. The croutons were kind of big so I will use seasoned stuffing next time. VERY YUMMY! And, in case you are wondering like I was, this was a meal in it of itself ... I didn't know if I needed to serve some meat with it...but this was definitely an entire meal.

Creamy Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
This was delicious but SO rich! I'll try again but maybe cut the whipped cream in half. The taste was steller, though, and I loved the way the Nilla Wafers (after sitting in the fridge overnight) turned into what tasted like little cakes. YUM.

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
We made this exactly as written (incl. using Cream of Celery) except used fresh broccoli. It was DELICIOUS! Loved loved loved it and will definitely make it again. One warning: this is supposed to feed 6? It fed three of us with no leftovers! THATS how good it was!
