New England Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2015
This is really good. I fry up bacon and sautee the onions and celery in the bacon drippings. The bacon is crumbled and served as a garnish on top. I also use 2 cups of half n half and add milk as needed. I heat the half n half in the microwave and mix in the flour when warm. This helps dissolve the flour and the lumps. I normally do not add peas (kids don't like). I have made it with ham and without and both are really good. One more thing, I add a couple dashes of hot sauce to give it a little more flavor. Thanks!

Harvey Ham Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2015
Kids said they were really sweet. And if the kids think they are sweet, than they must be. Nobody ate much of it. These looked so good, too. I will try again and work on toning down the sweetness.

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2015
I bring this to work for potlucks. I use chicken broth instead of water and the granules. I have also used canned green beans with great results. I throw everything in together, including potatoes (red potatoes) and let it go. It's a great taste of home.

Doc's Best Beef Jerky

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
Couple tips I can give is to (1) dry the meat after marinating between paper towels. This will help the process, since you are trying to dry the meat. The flavor is already absorbed from marinating. Mine marinated for about 36 hours. (2) I sprinkled the dry seasonings on the meat first and then poured the wet ingredients on. I found this easier to incorporate. (3)I used the oven at 170 degrees F instead of a dehydrator. I bought a sirloin roast and sliced it super thin. It took about 2-3 hours. I turned them after an hour and about every 20-30 minutes after that. This is my first time making jerky and I can't believe how good it is. Oh, I also added a 1/4 cup water to the mix to cut back on the salt from the other reviewers complaints.

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2014
I can't wait to try this on chicken breasts. I made it last night for the kids using chicken tenderloins (hubby and I were having fajitas and they don't like them). I cooked them at 400 for 20-25 minutes. Other than that, I followed the recipe with one exception. I melted the butter and drizzled it over the chicken. Once before putting it in the oven, and again halfway through the cook time. I let them rest for a minute on a wire rack after cooking. They came out quite crisp and the kids loved them. My husband and I were eating their leftovers wishing we had this chicken instead of fajitas! Thanks for a kid approved recipe that is simple, quick and delicious.

Old Time Kentucky Bacon Milk Gravy for Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2014
This is how my momma always made gravy and taught me. The only difference is 1.) We don't measure - just guess and 2.) We don't cook the flour for 15 minutes, just a minute or two. You can use sausage grease as well and crumble cooked sausage in it for a nice sausage gravy too. Super easy and delicious.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2014
We loved this soup! I did make a few changes that I believe made for a better soup. First, I sauteed the onion and celery in butter (next time I may try bacon grease) then added the potatoes and covered with chicken stock. Once the potatoes were cooked, I whisked the flour and milk together and just poured straight into the pot instead of making a separate roux. I also added 2 cups of half and half for creaminess. The soup thickened nicely and was the perfect consistency. This was great with ham, but dare I say next time I may also add crumbled bacon on top. This recipe is going into my favorite soup collection!

Always Juicy Baked Ham

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2013
I will try this again as the results may have been my fault. My ham came out very tasty, but not juicy. It was dry, almost like a country ham. But, I did not read where I was suppose to continue to baste it after covering it with foil. And I did cook the ham face up as opposed to face down like the package directions on my ham stated. Unfortunately, a lot of it was wasted and thrown out. Was even too dry for sandwiches. I had a 10lb ham, so maybe I overcooked it.... Worth the try and will update after making again. Thanks!

Honeydew-Grape Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
This was okay as written. Found I like it better with olive oil in place of vegetable oil with just mint and salt and pepper as opposed to lemon juice, sugar and basil. Very good with cantaloupe and even watermelon. Awesome in the summer with garden fresh tomatoes. Pretty presentation and good for picnics!

Corn On The Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking)

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013

Chicken and Asparagus with Penne Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
Save a step - cook your asparagus with your pasta. Just throw it in the last 4 minutes of cooking. Drain and add butter, Parmesan, chicken (I used leftover from a rotisserie), and I also added a little milk for creaminess and fresh pepper. I like these flavors and did not find it bland at all. Super quick weeknight meal. Literally on the table in 30 minutes.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
This is the best way to cook Italian sausage with peppers. We like to eat them on hoagies topped with marina sauce or with penne or rotini pasta. Thank you so much!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
Delicioso! Perfectly moist and flavorful. Please do not use italian dressing in place of the olive oil/garlic mixture. Not the same recipe! Besides, I'd rather have all the good fats from the olive oil, than the sodium, sugars and preservatives from the bottled dressing. Thanks for a not-so-boring chicken dinner!

Larb - Laotian Chicken Mince

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
My sister in law is from Thailand and makes this recipe. She makes it with ground pork, chicken or lamb. She did not use shrimp sauce or galangal. You can also buy already ground rice at most asian markets and then you just brown it up. If you can get thai peppers, that makes a difference. Once the chicken, pork, lamb is cooked, you add the rice, thai peppers, shallots, green onion, fish sauce, lime juice to taste and cilantro. We always serve with cabbage leaves or over rice. It is sooo good and really easy to make. Also good served cold.

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
This can really come together quickly and simply. I cook the asparagus with the pasta for the last 5 minutes to save a step and mess. I left out the chicken once and it was still delicious.

Spicy Three Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
This was my first attempt at making hummus. I really liked this recipe. I realized I was out of jalapenos after already committing to this, so I used the juice from a jar of pepperoncini's. It still had a nice bite to it. I didn't think the garlic was over-powering, but I think I will roast it next time. Thanks!

Individual Chicken Potpies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
I used a store bought crust - so I am reviewing the filling. This is about one of the only recipes that does not use a cream of something soup. Thank you! I also altered it to make it vegan - so it was basically a veggie pot pie when I was done. I omitted the butter, used vegetable broth and soy milk and no cheese or chicken. It was really creamy and good. Made it again using frozen veggies and it was a super quick and easy meal when served with a salad. Thank you for a great recipe.

Sarah's Tofu Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
I was not crazy about this. All I could taste were the herbs. Maybe if they were bundled in a sachet and simmered with the soup instead being tossed in. The only change I made was I omitted the butter and used vegetable stock to keep it vegan. Will try again with some tweaking.

Santa Fe Veggie Quesadillas

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
I just started adapting a vegan lifestyle and this is a great recipe. Of course, I omitted the cheese (used nutritional yeast in place). I used the whole can of corn and black beans and adjusted the other ingredients to fit. I added some jalapenos to spice it up and dipped in guacamole. This mixture is also good inside a pita with slices of avocado. Yum! Thanks.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I made this for Thanksgiving as I didn't have the condensed soups to make the "typical" green bean casserole. I must say I am glad I tried this recipe. It was delicious and everyone loved it over the original recipe. This will now be our green bean casserole for Thanksgiving.
