Award Winning Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2003
Excellent chili! I like it best with the bacon, but the bacon can be left out and it still makes a great chili. I thought having a lot of veggies in it was going to make it taste diluted or take away from the chili taste, but it's very good with the vegetables and still tastes hearty and satisfying and like chili should. I plan on using this recipe in the future!

Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
I really liked this dish. It's great for vegetarians seeking dishes with protein. I added lots of cheese for my kids, but kept the cheese moderate for the adults. I used salsa instead of tomato sauce. Everybody liked it a lot - even my picky kids (they normally hate beans and peppers).

Sunday Best Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
This fruit salad is brilliant! I love adding a few other kinds of fruits to it too. Just use what you like fruit-wise. I thought mangos were pretty awesome. So are mandarin oranges and grapes. This is my favorite way to get fresh fruit now. It can last for a few days in the fridge and makes a wonderful breakfast leftover. It adds a nice glaze without being sickly sweet. I was worried about that, but thankfully it is perfection.

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
Fabulous! I tried fat-free sour cream instead of mayonnaise to make it healthier and it is just delicious. Using the sour cream makes it quite a healthy dish. I took it to a potluck gathering and had requests to bring it again at thanksgiving. It always disappears rather quickly.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
This is a very hearty, heavy soup. Truly thick. Thicker than you think. Restaurant thick. It thickens up A LOT in the fridge if there are leftovers. Add a little milk when you reheat it. It turns out great. This is absolutely delicious. I will definitely be making this again.

Old-Fashioned Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
It's the thyme that makes this recipe so good. I think the chicken broth version tastes a lot better than the vegetarian version using veggie stock. I thought both versions were good though. This is a recipe that is in regular rotation in my household. I love it!

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2004
This is precisely the rich decadent consistency and flavor I was hoping for. I substituted half and half for the milk because I like the extra body it adds, and real pre-cooked bacon bits because I am lazy and didn't feel like cooking bacon (if you wanna be lazy with me they are in the salad aisle - make sure to get REAL bacon bits, not bacon flavored bits). The crust stayed flaky for as long as the quiche lasted. The bacon tasted just right despite being a shortcut. This recipe is a keeper.

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
These are great muffins! I replaced the oil with applesauce because it adds moisture without fat. I have lost several pounds since I started replacing my previous sugary cereals with these muffins for breakfast each day. This recipe has converted me over to healthy muffins for breakfast. They are tasty, fast, and highly portable so that you can replace fattier/sugarier or less satisfying snacks. Best of all if you make a huge batch (4 times the original recipe's worth), they freeze very well. I seperate them into groups of 12 or so to freeze, then when I run out of muffins, I pull a new bag out of the freezer in the evening and by the next morning they thaw out beautifully. I pop them in the toaster-oven and two minutes later I have breakfast! If you keep these around, you don't have to cook anything for breakfast for a LONG time (unless you want to). I'm not a morning person. This is a great option for my usual bleary-eyed quasi-comotose morning condition. Also, my highly finicky 2 year old will eat them, which is always a bonus.

Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
Very good cookies! They are not as moist as some recipes so I am going to keep experimenting, but I would make them again. Make sure to keep an eye on them because they bake fast, and that could be part of the reason they were a little dry for me. They are really great with 1/2 peanut butter chips and 1/2 semisweet chocolate chips!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
These are perfect. I was a little concerned when I saw that there was no salt in the recipe, but it really doesn't need it if you use salted butter. DO NOT USE UNSALTED BUTTER BY MISTAKE! They are rich and choclately and the texture is just perfect (chewy and soft yet not gooey and not flat). They freeze well too!

Eggless Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
I whipped the potatoes with a hand mixer to make the base creamier and added marshmellows on top (when the dish is done cooking, add marshmellows on top and put the sweet potato dish back in the oven for 10 minutes to make the marshmellows golden brown)

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
It baked my first turkey this thanksgiving using this recipe. My husband said I make better turkey than my Mother-in-Law (truly a great compliment), AND asked me to make another one a few weeks later! This is a great, easy way to make savory turkey with an aromatic herb taste. Leftovers make fantasitc sandwiches! I don't think the drippings would make good gravy, so buy gravy packets to compensate if you like gravy. Make sure that the olive oil covers the turkey breast very thoroughly. My first turkey turned out better than my second because I used too thin of a marinade on the second. Make sure the turkey is adequately slippery all over!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2004
This is a great recipe for sugar cookie frosting! It tastes like the frosting that is on the Lofthouse sugar cookies in the store. It's very soft and creamy. It is ONLY good for cookies. Do not use it for anything else! I used it on cake and then realized it was not right at all for any other application besides cookies.

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2003
Very simple. Tasted just like I hoped it would. I left out the sweet potatoes and used season salt instead of normal salt. I will be making this recipe again!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2004
I really liked the lemony/buttery taste of the sauce in combination with the shrimp and pasta. It was easy, (done in about 15 minutes) and relatively healthy too. I used FAR less black pepper than is called for in this recipe. I followed the other reviews that said the pepper was too strong, and just added the pepper near the end of cooking according to my tastes. I also cut down just a bit on the butter. It was very tasty. I will be making this again and again...

Hamburger Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
I was looking for my Grandma's traditional soup, and this is it! It's so easy and you can let it go in a crockpot all day if you feel like it. Highly recommended.
