Italian Chicken Sausage Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I've seen risotto made on TV many times but had never made it or eaten it. I love rice. But this recipe did nothing for me. I'm not sure what all the excitement is all about. I won't be making this again. I did not alter the recipe at all except to cut it in half.

Italian Chicken Sausage Stuffed Portabellas

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I am a fan of stuffed mushrooms but did not care for these. I wish I had done what others did and just stuffed white button mushrooms, I think they would have turned out better. The portobellos did not stand up to the stuffing and it went all over the pan. The stuffing was not special. I added a handful of chopped fresh spinach but that did not even liven it up. I won't be making these again.

Cheesy Southwest Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
I really have to admit I went into this recipe not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised! Of course I tweaked it to my tastes. I didn't have any cooked chicken so I used chicken tenderloins and pan fried them with taco seasoning. I then added the Progresso Starter and the 2 T of chopped green chilies (didn't want to use a whole can!) and boiled it a bit to thicken the sauce. I was really afraid of it being more like soup so I only added about 2/3 of the can of Starter. Then added the cooked mini penne. Stirred that up and grated some colby cheese on top, topped with chopped tomatoes. I am pleased with this recipe and may be making it again.

Pasta Fazoolander

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
I was wanting white bean soup and came upon this recipe. It was perfect because I had some frozen tortellini to use up (although they were spinach) and I had fresh spinach. The soup fit the bill as a quick dinner but I don't think I'll make it again. I'm not a fan of oregano but wanted to make the recipe as stated. I'm not downgrading it for that. I feel like the soup as is is just missing something.

Sausage and Vegetable Calzones

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
I made these today for lunch because I had the cooking cream and refrigerated pizza dough to use up. I used homemade Italian sausage, onion instead of red pepper, Parmesan instead of mozzarella and added Pepperoni. I only used about two Tablespoons of cream. I think more than that would have made it too juicy. These were very good and can be altered to personal preferences.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
I halved the recipe because I was using a 1 pound package of colossal shrimp from Trader Joes. I used unsalted butter which means the sauce needed salt. I added a pinch of red pepper flakes (which actually wasn't enough) and subbed white wine for the lemon juice. Next time I may use wine and lemon juice. Overall it was excellent and disappeared with great raves. Thanks!

Mellissa's Grandma's Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
I think this was overly sweet and I cut down the sugar in the berries. Maybe that would be a function of the berries. This isn't my favorite blackberry cobbler but not the worst. I think using juice instead of water and cutting down the sugar would help tremendously.

Mama's Summer Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
I had only 3 summer squash to use up so I halved the recipe. But I still used an entire onion, which I carmelized in olive oil instead of steaming. I highly recommend carmelizing the onion and also leaving the squash al dente instead of mushy. I also used the whole egg. I didn't have a "sleeve" of Ritz crackers so I had to estimate with club crackers. Since I had used a whole egg, I used enough cracker crumbs to make the whole thing come together. I also used Cheddar cheese with black pepper which made the whole thing spicier. I really enjoyed this recipe and will make again. Thanks!

Moist Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
Since the only other review mentioned how the cake stuck to the pans, I used parchment paper in mine. The loaves slid right out! After 65 minutes of baking the centers seemed to be still liquidy so I turned off the oven and left them in for about another hour. I used a quart of home canned spiced peaches instead of commerical peaches. I always sprinkle Turbinado sugar on top of sweet baked goods and I did with this too. When baking, after 35 minutes, the tops seemed to be getting too brown so I covered with foil. Upon first taste, it tasted like plain pound cake and it was very moist. We'll see how it is after it cools completely and sits for a day. Thanks!

Spicy Bean and Corn Salsa Side

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I agree with a previous reviewer in that I think this is better served room temperature. I used peach salsa and fresh frozen corn and no bell pepper (not a fan). I added some fresh cilantro. This is a good side dish! Thanks.

Bow Ties in Beef Blush Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
I followed the recipe but used what I had on hand which was a can of Rotel instead of salsa and Philadelphia Cooking Creme Roasted Garlic flavor instead of the regular cream cheese. I halved the recipe using 1/2 pound of ground beef. It was good and a quick lunch. Thanks!

Grilled Chicken with Peach Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
This was really good and I fully intended to take a picture but it got gobbled up first. Oh well, I'll just have to make it again. I couldn't use the grill as we were having a major thunderstorm so I lightly sauteed the chicken in a frypan and then just added the sauce and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. I used some homemade peach jam that didn't set up which was perfect. I also couldn't grill a peach for the side but definitely will next time. Thanks! Everybody that ate it, loved it!

Onion Pepper Relish

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
I needed to use up some jalapeno peppers and was glad to find this recipe that didn't require bell peppers (not a fan). However that seems like an awful lot of black pepper. It is canned and we'll see how it tastes in a few weeks. I got 5 1/2 pints out of the batch.

Dad's Peach Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
I am about to make my second batch of this recipe (scaled down to 6 servings). The only downfall is having to make the base ahead and let it chill. I have impatient ice cream eaters here! This is a great ice cream and will be made repeatedly. I used 1% milk and half and half instead of the heavy cream. Thanks! Update: This recipe makes an outstanding base for any fruit ice cream. I made my second batch with some sweet cherries that needed to be used up and it is AWESOME! Even my cherry hating DD is gobbling it up.

Dijon Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
I used poached chicken breasts instead of canned and ran it through the food processor with 3/4 of a vidalia onion to mince fine. I really didn't measure anything. I used green grapes and added some chopped cilantro. No cranberries or celery. I used Hellman's Olive Oil Mayonnaise with Black Pepper. My darling husband can't stop talking about this salad. Next time I will add some chopped nuts. Thanks!

Bread and Butter Pickles II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
I halved the recipe because I only had 6 cucumbers (about 6-8" long and 2" diameter). I only used cucumbers and onions not the bell peppers and garlic. I did not have celery seed so left it out. I let them stand in the salt mixture with ice on top for about 3 hours, then drained and rinsed. I had just enough for 4 pints which are currently in the water bath to be processed for 15 minutes. I look forward to tasting these in the cold winter months! UPDATE: About 10 weeks later, we opened a jar. These are really good but maybe a tad sweet. The most exciting part is that the cucumbers and onions are still crisp. I will make these again.

Jalapeno Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Darling husband brought home a bag of homegrown jalapeno peppers from work - God Bless people who shared their homegrown goods! I had a bunch of strawberries in the refrigerator that were past their prime so this recipe was perfect! I didn't quite have 4 cups of crushed strawberries so I added two pulverized peaches. I guesstimated the amount of peppers. I ended up with 10 half pints of jam and just a little left over to test. This stuff is awesome on crackers with cream cheese. Thanks!

Homemade Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
Easy recipe. I needed some egg noodles quick and this worked great! You need to beat the egg and add the flour gradually until combined. I did not require the full cup even though I had an extra large egg. It will depend on the humidity of your day. Thanks!
