Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
Made this for dinner tonight. Took the advice of others and used brown sugar instead of white. Good enough there was a debate between hubby and little man about who was going to take the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! LOL

Saffron Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I made this for dinner as a side dish, except instead of using "3 drops yellow food coloring", I used a smidgen pinch of turmeric for added color. Would've used more saffron except at $19 for .01 oz (on sale, I might add) that's pretty spendy for a spice! (Good thing I'm growing my own this year!!) I also used homemade chicken stock instead of water. Very delicious! Thank you for sharing. Will definitely make again.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2013
Very simple. Very delicious! Great for a chilly night such as tonight. No major varying from the original recipe. Used a leftover homemade roasted chicken from the night before. I did double the veggies listed 'cuz we like good 'n' chunky soup, and I also used homemade chicken bone broth instead of water and bouillon cubes. Bone broth adds loads more nutrients to the mix and far less sodium than bouillon or store bought broths. I just had to add some garlic tho' 'cuz we're garlic lovers and can't get enough of it.

Meatloaf that Doesn't Crumble

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Not a meatloaf kinda family, but have made this recipe more thane once because we really like it! Decided to make it this evening, but discovered I was out of celery right in the middle of prepping. BUMMER! However, I had fresh broccoli with stems, so I cut the florets off and peeled the stalks, cut them up as I would have the celery and put them in the blender. Nobody noticed the change!

Basil Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
The only thing I changed was the oil. We don't use vegetable oil because it's "soybean". We use either coconut or EVOO. I used coconut oil this evening. Other than that, I made as directed. It's a definite keeper for our family! Thanks!

Smoked Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Loved this! Recipe as shown definitely makes far more than 6 servings tho'. Filled my 5qt dutch oven to the brim. Didn't have fish stock, so used chicken stock. Next time will plan to have fish stock and am betting it will be even better yet. Used the white wine - tasted it without, it was still good but... added it in? Huge difference, for the better!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I made this just last week for the first time! All I can say is YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY and triply so on the encore (leftovers) a couple of days later when the beef had a chance to soak up more flavor from the sauce!!!! It was a huge hit in our house. So much so that my (mostly vegetarian) son asked me to make this for an upcoming Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet!! I also made some changes based upon reviews: dash of worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, dash of hot sauce. This second time around, I'm going to add some Better Than Bouillon Beef Base for a bit more beefy punch. Oh so delish and hitting the top 10 of meals to make!!

Irish Roast Beef with Guinness Au Jus

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Made this recipe mostly as directed - only exceptions being I added the potatoes from the beginning of the oven time as well as tossed in some carrots to the mix. Smelled mouthwatering while roasting and we really enjoyed it, but I think I'll add a tad more garlic and maybe some rosemary the next time.

Chicken Paprikash

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Very delicious! and a definite keeper!! I messed up my dumplings cooking them too long due to a distraction (too tough), so I made some egg noodles to substitute. The chicken was so tender it was melting off the bone. Next time, I'm going to try this with boneless breast and thigh cuts since we prefer our meat boneless anyway.

Ham and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
Made this with leftover Thanksgiving ham and it was delicious! I discovered as I was putting it together that I didn't have any swiss cheese (sliced or otherwise and I almost always have it!), but I did have a shredded Mexican 4 cheese and used it as a substitute. Worked great! It was a huge hit for hubby and 7yr old son!! One slice for leftovers and hubby took it for lunch the next day!

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Making this for dinner tonight in the crock pot! The only ingredient I didn't have in stock was the tomato juice, so I used canned diced tomatoes instead. I've done a taste test or two in the past hour and OMGosh it is so yummy!! Might be a tad too spicy for my 7.5yr old tho' since he's not fond of spicy, so next time I might tone it down a bit.

Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
New family fav! My 6yr old and hubby went for seconds!! I had bought several fresh-made flavors of smoked salmon from a fish market the other day. Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, so I surfed in here and found this recipe. Instead of the "lighter" version, I had heavy cream on hand that needed to be used up. Also I used minced garlic instead of powder... and I thought I had frozen peas on hand, but didn't - which was a bummer! However, I did have fresh spinach and to add color contrast, I chopped that up to toss in it. YUMMY!

White Chicken Enchilada Slow-Cooker Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
YUMMY!!! New family fav. Made this last week, only change I made was using white corn tortillas as opposed to the flour. Now, I boo-booed and forgot to plug in my slow-cooker. By the time I realized my mistake, it was too late to expect it for dinner that evening, so I put in the fridge for the next evening's meal. Held over well. Would most definitely recommend!!

Amish Friendship Bread Starter

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
Thanks for the starter recipe! Had made this years ago and someone just gave me one that I just whipped up, but my hubby accidentally took them all to work to give away. Also, I wasn't sure how to extend this past the 10-day marker and we were gearing up to go on vacation. Now I can make it any time! I've used all different flavors of instant pudding in our recipes - ranging from chocolate, banana (our fav), vanilla, butterscotch, etc. You're only limited by your imagination!

Sweet and Sour Pork I

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
We really liked this recipe. Even my picky teenager came back for seconds! I totally skipped dipping the pork in the egg and dredging it - still turned out fantastic and crip! Not big on green peppers, so I chopped them up fine. Except for the flavor they added, no one really noticed they were there... For those of you who looked for "Tapioca Starch" and failed - look for "Tapioca Flour" instead. It is actually one and the same! Bob's Red Mill is the brand I came up with and it is found in most of your health food aisle of your grocery store. The Tapioca Starch/Flour adds an additional slight sweetness to the recipe. You can substitute corn starch for this tho'. Use 1-Tbsp corn starch to every 2-Tbsp Tapioca Starch/Flour. If you have problems finding "Plum Sauce", you can usually find that in the Asian aisle of your grocery store by the other speciality sauces they offer...

Newport Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2005
WOW! The flavor is fantastic!! I did tweak it a bit according to some previous reviews (adding carrots, celery, and bacon, as well as substituting some of the clam juice for chicken broth). Turned out great. The only thing is it was a bit soupier than we like our chowder, so next time I will be thickening it up a bit. Definitely a keeper!!

Spaghetti with White Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
Super fast! Super easy! Being garlic lovers, I doubled the fresh garlic. Even my teenage son - who isn't a big seafood lover - had seconds. Definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing.

Rich Penne Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2004
Like a previous reviewer, I added another Italian Sausage link. I also used a small onion and added extra garlic. The sauce was a bit runny for my tastes, but it was flavorful. Will definitely be trying again and tweaking a bit more to our tastes. Thanks for a great recipe tho'!
