Italian Drunken Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I made this last night for the first time. I didn't have Pappardelle, so I used Fusilli. I think egg noodles would also work pretty well. This was very good, easy, and fast. Great hearty, weeknight meal on a cold, rainy Halloween while watching scary movies. Good comfort food. I didn't have yellow or orange peppers, but the red peppers were fine. I did add more Chardonnay than called for, and found it needed additional salt and pepper. I'll definitely make it again, though.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
Wow! This was so easy, tender, and so delicious! Patience is the key, and resisting the urge to open the oven door. Like others, preheated the oven at 500 degrees for 15-20 minutes, then roasted the seasoned 3.25 lb eye of the round for 7 mins per lb (approx 21 mins). I then turned my gas oven down to 200 degrees for about 1.5 hours. After taking it out, me meat thermometer read just under 145 degrees. I let it sit, covered for 15 minutes, then sliced thinly with my electric knife. It turned out medium rare, and although at first I thought it might be a tad too rare, I received tons of raves. Very, very good!

Awesome! Wow, these were amazing! I topped mine with just a little bit of carmelized onion, and they were amazing. Easy and delicious appetizer...quick prep...impressive presentation, too.

Corn and Zucchini Melody

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
I made this for the first time ever tonight, and it was just wonderful! My husband raved and raved, and my son had seconds. Loved the differnet use for abundant zucchini! Very quick and easy prep with ingredients that I almost always have on hand. The only change we felt it needed was to add some sea salt, which enhanced the flavors to our liking perfectly.

Italian Green Bean Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
We enjoyed this healthy and easy to prepare dish very much. Like others, I doubled the garlic b/c that's what we like. The chicken turned out a little overdone, though, so next time I'll prepare the green beans w/ the garlic and olive oil first, and move them to a plate so I can saute the chicken. I'll add the tomato mixture toward the end, and simmer for just a few minutes before serving. That should keep the chicken from overcooking. Loved this though!

Easy Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
Pretty darned good! I used 3 avacados (recipe calls for 2), though, and that ratio to the other ingredients, seems to suit our taste well. Easy and fast recipe, too.

Zucchini 'Noodles'

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
These were fantastic! My husband and my son even loved them...and they're typically not big fans of zucchini. Great recipe to use up zucchini. Like many others said, I used olive oil instead of butter. Added some red pepper for a little kick, too. Loved the "noodle" effect, and the "al dente" texture/bite. Preparing zucchini this way eliminates the mushy texture you often get with steamed or boiled slices. This made it much more appealing, too. I'd imagine that you could also add long thin strips of carrot (as well as yellow summer squash) to this veggie noodle dish. Thank you for this recipe!

Spinach Pesto Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
We tried this tonight, and enjoyed it. Like many others, I seasoned the chicken breasts with sea salt & pepper. I also followed the advice of many reviewers who suggested adding a few cloves of minced garlic, about a 1/4 cup diced onions, a little white wine, and more pesto than the original recipe called for. It turned out very moist, and flavorful. It was a nice change for boneless chicken breasts. I served it with oven roasted fresh beets and carrots. Thanks!

Cheesy Polenta

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
I made this last night for a groupd of family and friends. Like others, I substituted chicken broth for the water, used 1% milk b/c that's what we buy (and it's healthier), and used a combination of parmesan and low-fat cheddar for the cheese. I kicked up the flavor a bit w/ the addition of some Wildtree Herbs' Onion and Chive seasoning blend but you could use a little diced onion or dehydrated onion and chives. (Everyone raved and raved over this quick and easy side dish which complimented a wonderful meatloaf my sister made! Great alternative to mashed potatoes. Will definitely make again!

Smothered Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Delicious! Everyone enjoyed this dish served over white rice. The ribs and its aromatic and flavorful sauce/gravy was the perfect compliment to the simplicity of the white rice. Like others, I thickened my gravy w/ a little cornstarch & beef broth (rather than water). Perhaps the best part was the aroma in the house as it simmered for all those hours!

The Big Easy Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
I love this Jambalaya mix, and have been using it to make a kickin' version of this recipe for years! I substitute beer and/or wine for the water, though. It gives the dish a greater depth of flavor. I often use what I have on-hand for the protiens, but love when I have diced ham, shrimp, diced chicken, and either andouille sausage, or even kielbasa works well. I have also added black beans. I find this Jambalaya mix to be very versatile. This dish always impresses.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
I am so disappointed, because I expected so much from this pie. I think the butter overwhelmed the flavor, and it was too rich.

Angel Hair with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
This dish was awesome! I followed exactly but added more olive oil, some sliced kalamata olives, black pepper & a bit of sea salt. My family loved this. I'll definitely make this again. It's super fast, too. I think this would be great with some shrimp or chicken to make a main dish.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
Fantastic & really quite easy. Although time consuming to prepare, it's worth every minute. I threw my dough ingredients in the bread machine dough cycle, then went & did other things for the 1 hr., 20 min. cycle. During that time, I also prepared the cinnamon mixture and the cream cheese frosting. Once the dough is done, the rest is easy. I prepared these at night & baked them in the morning before work (for a potluck breakfast at the office). Everyone raved & raved about these, and could not believe I made them from scratch. The only changes I made, were that I used French Vanilla pudding mix as that's what I had in my pantry, and I omitted the pecans because I wasn't sure if anyone had nut allergies at the office. Excellent...just excellent.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
Very easy and sooo delicious. I marinated chicken tenderloins in the sauce, then baked but at 375 degrees and for only 20 mins. so as not to dry them out. Served over rice w/ extra sauce. This would work well w/ larger boneless breasts or bone-in pieces in a crock pot, too, I think. I may have to try that. Might be good w/ pineapple chunks. Love the sauce! Great meal! UPDATE: Made double batch of this amazing sauce...before cooking/thickening, I marinated 8 boneless pork loin chops for 4 hours in 1/2 the sauce, then grilled them. Simmered/thickened remaining sauce on stovetop in small pot. Served sauce over grilled chops...amazing!!
