Quick and Easy Chicken Spaghetti

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
We are not angel hair pasta fans so I used mini-wagon wheels. I sauted 1/2 chopped onion, 2 cloves minced garlic and 1 diced zuchini. I used diced canned tomatoes w/ Italian seasonings. The dish IS comfort food. Could use a little more Italian seasoning ... definitely, next time. The dish reminded of Mac + Cheese w/ chicken. Indeed, it IS a nice change from marinara and Alfredo sauces. Yum.

Roast Beef with Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
I was intrigued with this recipe as I am a coffee lover. How can the beef be so dry with all of that liquid? (In addition to the coffee, I added water and a beef bouillon cube. My husband hardly ever says "don't make this again" but did this time.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
Excellent .... would give it more stars, if I could. I used 1 large garlic clove (minced) and ground pepper. There was a lot of sauce. I served it over rice = YUM. Next time, I will try the 1/2 mayo + 1/2 sour cream combination and maybe cut down on the amount of sauce. I cannot wait to make this again, and again, and again. Thanks so much!!

My husband and I loved this recipe. Yes, the sauce is thin; just thicken it up with some cornstarch .... quick and easy for every good cook. Never too many onions or mushrooms!!

Steak 'N' Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
We loved this soup. It is so quick to make. It is so flavorful it seems liked you cooked it all day! I will make it again and again. I used dried herbs, frozen green beans instead of frozen peas, thickened it a tad, added two chopped Roma tomatoes at the end. It can only get better with age!!

Beer Chops I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Yummy. I, too, added a can of cream of mushroom soup, pepper and a couple of splashes of balsamic vinegar, which helped the taste and created an excellent color. I doubled the onions to two, using one red and one yellow. (Never too many onions in this household.) My husband and I are NOT beer drinkers and we both loved this recipe. Oh, the wonderful aromas as it was cooking, too. I thickened the sauce on the stove for serving over rice. I loved the challenge of tweeking this recipe. For shame it got such a bad rap. Even though I am an experienced cook, I love the ease and simplicity of this recipe!!

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Excellent!! I don't think I will ever make another BNB as this one is fantastic. I couldn't even wait until the loaf cooled down....I had to try it even hot!! I can't wait until breakfast tomorrow morning. I had all of the ingredients at home, including 2 very ripe bananas. I used walnuts, which is my preference over pecans. I don't care for the recipe title. It should be "Streusel Banana Bread". Thank you for the great recipe!!

Red Cabbage and Apples

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
I only had 6 C. of red cabbage + 1 green apple but used the same amount of not-packed 'brown sugar' and white vinegar. Totally, totally yummy. It made a lot. I served it as a side dish w/ Beef Strogenoff, my husband's favorite dish. Thanks. I will be making this again.

Fish In A Vegetable Patch

I used Sole. Loved this lower-calorie dinner. I served it over rice and topped it with some Parmesan cheese. What a treat to have a yummy, easy, healthy meal!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
Wow! Great cake AND super easy! I used Duncan Hind's Swiss Chocolate (all I had on hand). I think using the original Kahlua is a must. As I told my girlfriend, I am not a chocoholic, but I may become one after eating this cake. Yum.

Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
What a nice change for a salad. It is so easy to make!! It is very refreshing in the hot weather. I peeled the cucumbers (used 2) and diced them. Next time I will leave part of the peel. Years ago, a girlfriend taught me to strip the peel for more fiber and color. I used Grape tomatoes and left them whole, although I almost cut them in half. I did not measure the sour cream and mayo but used the same proportion. I used celery salt and pepper .... lots of both. I LOVE THE CRUNCHY AND MY HUSBAND LIKES ANYTHING CREAMY. He said he could eat this for dessert!! I had all of the ingredients on hand. Think of all of the other possibilities .... such as colorful bell peppers, blanched broccoli, etc. Thank you sooooo much!!

Peach Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
How odd to read an identical version of the pie I have been making 'forever', passed down from my Mom. We are pie makers and eaters. Actually, pie making is so easy, I only used approximate measurements and they turn out perfect everytime. It's the love!! Just ask my brother and friends, who often request pie for breakfast!!

Breakfast The Night Before

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
I made this recipe as given but opt to use "Italian" (seasoned) pork. It was yummy. I love the ease of cubing the cheese and preparing the dish the night before.

Ham Slice with Pineapple-Orange Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
We loved it. I made two BIG mistakes and it still ended up to be 5+ stars. I don't know where my mind was but 1) I forgot to put the pineapple over the top of the ham (I put it over the sauce and lightly mixed), and 2) I forgot to add the pineapple juice to the sauce! I just poured it over the top. As it was baking, all my fears disappeared as what an aroma! I can hardly wait to make it the correct way! Thanks a million!!

BBQ Chicken Calzones

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Delicious! I used Cheddar Cheese and everthing was fine. On the top, I put a dollop of sour cream and drizzled some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce = attractive! I used Pillsbury's Pizza Dough and was not impressed. Would not used this pizza dough again ... needs more research and can only be less cost!

Black Beans a la Olla

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Loved it! I used less cilantro ... still getting a taste for it. I added some salt, pepper, and simmered it for 1 hour. Next time, I would double it and cook it in the crock pot. Just enough spice. We love garlic and my husband is an onion lover!! Thanks :)

Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
What a delight. I used 12 oz. bottle of Michelob Ultra and water to total 1 1/2 C. I am not a beer drinker but recipe turned out yummy. Great way to use up beer. Would NOT make the recipe w/o beer. Husband agrees (and he is not a beer drinker either). I used 2 1/2 C. of cheese. The consistancy was perfect. Can't wait for the leftovers. Will make again and again and again. Thanks.
