BBQ Dry Rub

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2004
So good! I first used this for some thick pork chops, which were good, but my husband burned them a little. First time we had grilled pork. Last night we used it with country-style pork ribs, and it was a real winner! My husband declared it the best he'd ever had and so did our neighbor. Thanks for sharing it.

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!

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!

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
Yummy! Easy to make and chicken was very moist. Husband declared it a winner! I followed the recipe exactly, except for using 3 large breast halves. It's a keeper.

Lemony Lentils with Kale

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
Wow! This is so good. The only canned tomatoes I had were Rotel brand with green chiles, so I used that and left out the crushed red pepper. I served this over quinoa. Perfectly nutritious and delicious! Will definitely make this again.

Grandpop's Special Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
I made this for my husband's birthday 3 days ago and the cake is still moist and delicious. Try it with a homemade cream cheese icing....YUM!********** Update (12-2-10): Four years later, this has become my "go to" chocolate cake recipe. My kids ALWAYS request it (with homemade cocoa icing) for every birthday. I've made it over and over, and only once did it "fall", and that was when I switched brands of flour. Needless to say, I ditched that flour and went back to my old brand. Perfect chocolate cake!

Awesome Ham Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2005
Wow! I just made this, and I don't think I'll be able to let it sit overnight! It's delicious! I used leftover Easter ham, small shell pasta, and 1/2 red onion. Also, I used 2 Tablespoons sweet pickle relish and 2 Tablespoons dill relish (since sweet pickles are not our favorite.) This is a winner, and can be easily adapted....may add shredded carrots, etc. next time.

Slow Cooker Barbeque

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2005
My husband ate 4 sandwiches of this beef tonight....I couldn't believe it! This is very easy to make. The only change I made was to add 1 cup of water after 2-3 hours of cooking, because it looked very dry, and I was afraid it would burn.

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.

Pakistani Spicy Chickpeas

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
I think the toasted cumin seeds make this dish. I brown them in the oil (although I use less oil...1/2-1 Tbs.) along with the other spices and salt. I use black pepper instead of lemon pepper. Then I add the onions to saute them a while before adding the tomatoes and chickpeas. I have used fresh tomatoes and canned, but I like to puree them in the food processor first. I usually serve this with Jasmine rice and hummus and pita bread. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
I love that this salad contains no oil. Great flavors and interesting textures! I used half of a medium red onion, but it was a little strong. Next time, I will use less onion.

Light Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
I thought this was an excellent alternative to oily pesto. The only thing I changed was to use parmesan instead of romano (since that's what I had on hand), and added about 1/4 cup water to thin it out a little. I sprinkled mine with crushed red pepper flakes. Yummy!

Creamy Corn Chowder

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
This hit the spot on a cold, rainy evening! I had to modify the recipe a bit, because I didn't have enough green pepper. I used about 1/4 cup green pepper and added a very small jar of diced red pimento. I only used 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes......can't imagine how hot it would be with a full tablespoon. Next time, I think I will skip the boiling the potatoes in water and just throw everything in with the veggie broth from the start to cook together. Very simple recipe. Low that it was low-fat and had the protein of the tofu.

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.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Very moist and yummy. I used 2 lbs. of turkey and doubled the quinoa. Added a little ketchup to the topping mixture. So glad to have a beef alternative for meatloaf now!

Stir Fried Pasta with Veggies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
Made this tonight exactly as directed except for added slightly more soy sauce (the reduced sodium variety) and serving with flat japanese noodles (a mixture of wheat and rice). It was so good. My kids ate it as prepared, and my husband and I added a little spicy szechuan sauce at the table. I will make this again.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I believe this was my first time ever making meatballs, and I was glad I chose this recipe. I used some ground beef which had a higher fat content (because it was what I had), I cut down the red pepper flakes to 1/4 tsp. (for my kids), omitted the hot sauce, and used finely ground oatmeal instead of bread crumbs. I also only used about 1/4 of a small onion. Once baked, I put the meatballs in a crockpot, poured my favorite jarred marinara sauce on top, and let it cook on low for a few hours until supper time. We recently bought a LOT of beef from a local farmer, so I think these would be a good way to use the ground beef. I plan to make and freeze some for later use. Thanks for a great recipe!
