Beautiful Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2005
I am the original poster of this recipe, and I wanted to add that I often add a crunchy green such as romaine along with the spinach, and I sometimes add thinly sliced fresh mushrooms. We tried the blush wine vinaigrette as one reviewer suggested, and it was very good, but we still prefer the depth of flavor and punch the balsamic vinaigrette provides. Thanks for all the positive comments!

Basic Spicy Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
I make a very similar sauce that I keep on hand in the freezer all the time. The only difference is, I use fresh basil in place of the Italian seasoning, add a tablespoon of tomato paste, and always San Marzano tomatoes. I also sauté the red pepper flakes along with the onion and garlic. I have a freezer full of fresh basil chopped and mixed with EVOO and that is what I add at the end. I always only cook it till everything is combined and piping hot, but I never let it get so hot it comes to a boil---we love the fresher taste. I will try some in a crockpot one day, though. I'm sure it will give a completely different, long-cooked flavor! We LOVE this sauce on any kind of pasta dish, with cheese sticks, on sandwiches, eggplant or chicken Parmigiana, etc. Can't go wrong with this one---thanks for posting!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2014
I have made a variation of this recipe for over 40 years and it is easy, makes great gravy and we love it. However, to add more flavor and create a more tender roast, first I dust the meat with flour and season well with salt and pepper, then SEAR the meat in a bit of oil on all sides till well-browned. I then combine in a bowl 1 cup of red wine, 2 cans of GOLDEN mushrom soup, 1 pkg. dry onion-mushroom soup mix and pour over the roast I have placed in the crockpot. If I have time, I also add about 1# of saute'ed mushrooms and about 4-6 cloves of roasted garlic. Served over rice, potatoes or noodles, it is a wonderful, comforting, hearty meal.
