Healthier Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
This totally satisfied our craving for mac and cheese! I sprinkled in a few drops of liquid smoke and shook in some powdered mustard, omitted the butter and used less crumbs. Next time I'll toss the cheese mix into the food processor for a more uniform look (no need to see chunks of cottage cheese in the final product) ~Thanks Chuck, this one's a keeper!!!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This was fabulous~ with modifications. I always read other's reviews. DON'T add salt!! The ham hocks are essential for authentic bean soup. I used 4 cans of navy beans, 4 cups of chicken stock and 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth. 2 ham hocks, no other added meat. 3/4 cup carrot, 1/2 cup celery and an entire onion, carmelized. 2 t. garlic. Bought to a boil and simmered for an hour, removed hocks, cooled and seperated the meat out and added it back to the soup, simmered another 1/2 hour. Skimmed off the fat, mushed some beans against the side of the pot to add body to the soup. Near the end I added a couple dashes of hot chili sauce. Not enough to add heat, just round out the flavor. It was so good we ate it for 2 days. YUM!!!

Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
I only had a pound of ground turkey so I cut the recipe in half. (I still came out with 11 corn tortillas, enough to fill a 9 X 13.) I added 3 cloves of crushed garlic, taco seasoning and a small can of green chiles. I also poured half a can of green chile enchilada sauce into the meat mixture and poured the rest into the bottom of the casserole dish and over the enchiladas. VERY TASTY!!!

Lattice Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Good basic recipe, it's pretty bland on it's own. I used cream of chicken soup, added a dollup of sour cream and a splash of white wine, plus a diced small red potato, 1/3 c. carmelized chopped onion w/ 2 t. chopped garlic, 1/3 c. celery, 1/2 t. pepper, 1/4 t. poultry seasoning and 1/4 t. celery seed. I also used half the cheese, no french fried onions, stirred it all up and then added milk until it seemed like a good consistancy. YUM!! (I know some of you feel it wrong to alter recipes but I've made my finest meals by reading reviews and tweaks)

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
I love this recipe! So cool to read everybody's spin on this sandwich. I used millet bread, but you could use wheat or french bread etc,, Put mayo, thin sliced tomato, cooked bacon and horseradish cheddar with a pickle slice on the side. If I wanna be REALLY bad I'll whip up an egg and some milk and dip the sandwich in it before I grill it. YUM!!

Campbell's® Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Why do people give low ratings for blandness? It's up the the individual to jazz it up a little, if needed. I used lowfat evaporated milk, Healthy Choice crm. of mushroom soup, wholegrain pasta bow ties insted of egg noodles, half the peas. I added a chopped shallot and celery stalk, several chopped mushrooms, all sauteed first. I also tossed in some thyme and cracked pepper, and lastly tripled the crumbs and added grated romano. It was terrific!!

Pork Chops a la Slow Cooker

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
This was my 1st time with a Crock Pot so I used this recipe and it's reviews as a guide and made changes to suit my taste. First off I brought the recipe down to 2 servings. Then, I sauteed a box of sliced mushrooms, set aside. Carmelized 1/2 a chopped onion and 2 cloves of garlic. Browned the pork chops with a dusting of flour in olive oil. In a bowl I mixed 1 can of cream of mushroom soup with 1/4 c. sherry (NOT the cooking kind), the mushrooms and the onion/garlic, 3/4 tsp. paprika, and 1/4 tsp. thyme, couple twists of fresh pepper. Cooked on low for 5 hours, served over brown rice with steamed broccoli slaw. Fall off the bone yummy.

Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
My mom grew up in WV and this recipe is authentic. Make sure to rinse the beans after they soak! Don't add the salt 'til the end, you may not want it. I used 4 cups no salt added chicken stock and 3 cups water. You *have* to serve this soup with cornbread (I bake mine in a cast iron skillet), and you can use ham hocks if you don't have a bone. :) Don't forget to mash some soup up against the side of the pot.

Way to go, Simon!! This soup was awesome.!! I added a bit more cumin and a couple shakes of curry, plus some sauteed hot Italian sausage (chicken, not pork) and used canned pumpkin instead. I'm going to have some tomorrow for lunch, 3rd day in a row which is saying ALOT about the soup.

First I brought the serving yeild down to 4, then I took another reviewer's advice and added a dash each of liquid smoke, Worcestershire, and soy sauce. I also added a little more bread crumbs. My new fave turkey recipe! Nice and juicy, they're every bit as yummy as a hamburger!

Pork Tenderloin Diablo

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Next time I either won't salt the meat before browning or I'll use low salt broth. I used fat free half and half (had it on hand) and sprinkled in a tiny bit of flour to thicken. Used half the butter. I will make this AGAIN and AGAIN!!! Thank you, chef John :)

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
This was yummy. I doubled the basil and oregano, and added 1/4 t cayenne. I think next time I might add a liitle hot chicken sausage. * Bake the squash, it's worth the time you save microwaving (as some have done) in better flavor.
