Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
I loved this soup, but my husband thought it was too tomatoey and my kids did not like the cilantro. I will make this again, but will use less tomatoes (maybe one small can instead of a large can) and leave the cilantro as an optional topping only. I think it's a great way to use leftover turkey!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I think these were a little too cheesy. While baking, the cheese melted and spread out, making the bottoms of the sausage balls flat and connected together with a cheesy crust. The flavor was good though. I actually thought they tasted better the next day COLD, right out the refrigerator. If I make them again, I will definitely cut back on the cheese.

Dad's Best Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
My family did not care for this recipe, and asked me to make PLAIN hamburgers from now on. I decided to give this recipe a try because I was looking for a way to use up a pound of sausage in my freezer. The burgers were very greasy and less flavorful than I had imagined they would be. I won't make these again.

Slow Cooker Cream of Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Wow! This was so simple and very good. I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 only because it was way too salty and I had to add some regular milk (in addition to the evaporated milk) because it was so thick. I will definitely make this again with less salt and more milk. Thanks!

Rosemary Chicken Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
I cut the oil to 1/2 cup, which was plenty. Left out the olives, since my family hates them, and used fat free feta. Very good. Will make again, although all the chopping made it more time consuming than I thought it would be.

Zesty Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
I think this has potential, but definitely needs some tweeking. I wanted to try this because it's less fattening than the traditional broccol salad (with bacon, cheese, and mayo), but was disappointed. Maybe it was the salad dressing. No one in my family liked it. I'm going to throw away the leftovers.

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Oh, my goodness! This is so good! I left out the spinach and the mushrooms, since I wanted a "no veggie" quiche and a separate "veggie" quiche for a party. This recipe, even without the spinach and mushrooms, is so rich and delicious. I've been making quiche for years, but never added sour cream. I think the sour cream definitely makes this quiche special.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
Yum! This is so good and so simple! Be sure to let the onions carmelize...getting really brown and toasty. That's what makes this dish so yummy. I cut the oil down to 3 Tablespoons, which was plenty, and I used white Basmati rice. I served it with hummus and pita and a mixed green salad topped with sunflower seeds and balsamic vinegarette....all the flavors went so well together. My husband, who was skeptical when he came to the table, declared it a "keeper" by the end of the meal.

Venison Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
This soup was excellent, with a few important additions. First, add 2-3 cloves minced garlic when browning the meat. Then, when all the veggies and spices are added, add the following also: 1/2 cup red wine, 1/2 tsp. each basil and oregano, and 1 Tab. Worchestershire sauce. Omit the sugar. I don't normally care for vension, but since my husband hunts, I have to prepare it. I LOVED this soup! Thanks!

Gypsy Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This is one of my favorite soups! Love it as is. Sometimes I add Italian Sausage, if I want a meaty soup. Love the spices and the sweet potato.

White Beans and Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I was looking for a quick recipe for dinner tonight to replace our old standby of black beans and rice.....I was out of black beans, but had great northern. This was so easy and good! I used a yellow bell pepper and added about 1 clove of minced garlic. Served with jasmine rice, salad, and fresh pineapple. Yummy!

Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
These are great cookies! I love that they're made with whole wheat flour, and the molasses adds some nutritional value, too. But the best part is that they taste so good! My kids love them. The dough is quite sticky, so this would not be good for rolling out and cutting into shapes. But they really do look pretty with the sugar sprinkles.

Slow Cooker Marmalade Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
It's hard to find good slow cooker chicken recipes without a lot of added fat (creamy soups, sour cream, cream cheese, etc.) This recipe is low fat AND very yummy! I dredged the chicken in flour as others suggested, and used only 1/4 tsp. of the cayenne pepper because I was afraid my kids would think it was too spicy. It turned out very well. My husband had seconds and my 6 yr. old said I should make it again!

Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This chicken came out moist and tender, but my family did not like the flavor much. It wasn't bad, just not a favorite. I think we would prefer a little more zip or spice. I may experiment using this recipe, but replacing the orange juice with lemon juice and the stuffing mix with Italian seasoned bread crumbs.

Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
I made this today and it tastes great. However, I had to bake it a little longer in order to get the center done, which I think dried it out a bit. Also, I put the glaze on the loaves while they were still in the pans. Next time, I will definitely remove the loaves first! I'm thinking of trying this in a bundt cake pan to see if it does well as a cake (and bakes quicker.)

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
I love this pilaf! Served it with ham and was delicious. It was a little more sticky than I expected, but the taste and textures are so good!

Lemon Bars II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
This was not what I expected. Tasted more like shortbread than lemon bars. Not completely bad (anything with 3 sticks of butter can't be completely bad!), just not very lemony. The filling seemed to be absorbed into the dough.

Chicken Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
I made this soup for supper tonight, with a few changes, and it was very good. I did not have parsnips, but I did have a zucchini, so I quartered and sliced it and substituted it for the parsnip. Also, did not have egg noodles, so I added some rice (a little less than one cup) right to the soup. My kids loved the meatballs! I will use a little less pepper next time in the meat mixture. And I'll try it with the noodles and parsnips, too! Seems pretty versatile. Thanks!

Italian Sausage and Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2006
This was very good, especially with all the veggies doubled. I doubled all the ingredients except the sausage, and it was wonderful. The sausage took longer than expected to become no longer pink, and I cut it up before I should have, so it was a little squishy when I cut it. I'll let it cook longer next time before cutting it. Thanks for a great way to use up summer sqaush!
