Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
i love this! but i alter it a LOT. first of all, i don't use sausage. i just throw in some roasted turkey bits (mostly breast, but some dark meat too). i also use less melted butter and a lot more broth to incorporate it all. i haven't tried this with dried cranberries; all i had on hand were fresh, so i chopped them up and added them. i loved the tang they added. i also just made this in separate baking pans as a dressing rather than a turkey-filler. it has all sorts of lovely tastes mixing together--the sweetness of the apple, the tartness of the berries, the savory herbs... and i love that it uses both whole wheat and white breads. i used store-bought dinner rolls, and it turned out great. it's different from your typical "celery and bread stuffing", but it was a welcome change. love it!

Pumpkin Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
i made this the old fashioned way--no bread machine. it turned out beautifully. the color is fantastic, and the spices give it a nice taste, but no one could really tell it was pumpkin. for me, the pumpkin just gave it an interesting golden color, but not enough flavor to be recognized. it would be really great with country crock's cinnamon margarine or pumpkin spice margarine!

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
"amazing" is definitely the right word to describe this crust! it is so delicious and healthy, but it doesn't have that really chewy, bland taste that some whole wheat breads tend to take on; therefore my picky little sister will even eat it! i usually double this and then make a lot more crusts than the recipe says. you can press it out pretty thin, and it still poofs up relatively nicely when baking. it's the perfect base for creating any sort of pizza. delish!!!!

Orange Vinaigrette Brown Rice Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
i liked the flavor of this, but my mom and some others weren't all that impressed. first off, mine looked nothing like the picture on this site!!! i think this is probably best fresh. as it continues to sit, the flavors do enhance, but the oranges become bitter and the spinach wilts.

Smucker's Chicken Salad with Wild Rice, Pecans, Grapes and Orange Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
this was interesting--very different. my grocery store was out of sugar-free marmalade, so i just used regular--maybe that's why it seemed too sweet and overpowering for me. i'm not sure if i'll make it again, but it was fun to experiment with. the grapes, nuts, chicken, and rice were a great combo, i just might need to do some tweaking on the dressing.

Chicken Veggie Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
yum!! this soup is sooo wonderful! my only problem was that i sort of measured the amount of chicken, but did not measure the veggies at all, and i'm always far too generous with the veggies--my soup ended up being a vegetable soup with just a few random pieces of chicken floating around, but it was still incredibly good. i used all the veggies listed, plus added a bit of zucchini. i used waaaay more spinach though, because it cooks down so much, and it ended up being my favorite part. instead of fresh tomatoes, i used 1 can that was pre-seasoned with basil and oregano, then i added freshly ground pepper (red & black), oregano, and some italian seasoning to the soup. i wanted to make a baguette or focaccia to serve with this, but didn't have time, so to make this heartier, i cooked about 1/2 cup (dry) of brown rice and added it with the spinach at the end. i can't wait to finish off those leftovers-- and then make this again!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
these were okay... if we make them again they'll need some changes though. i should have read the reviews first. i definitely should have added more water and less salt. we added about 4 tbsp water to the dough to get it to ball up, but then after letting it rise and trying to shape the pretzels, it was incredibly tough and hard to work with. we didn't have as much fun trying to shape them as we have with prior recipes. this was more like a chore. i also found that they were too thick for the baking time, but starting getting very brown very quickly, so i had to cover them with foil for the last several minutes of baking. they do have a nice, chewy texture and i like the sweetness, but i wish they would have rolled out thinner and that they were less salty-- and we didn't even add kosher to the top.

California Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2004
Wow! This was a great stir fry!! We didn't use Mann's California Stir Fry, however; we just added fresh veggies from the garden--broccoli, carrots, red onion, a little celery, zucchini, and summer squash. We also used red wine vinegar, a little extra pineapple, and added a touch of cornstarch. The sauce was sooo tasty!! Served over brown rice for a delicious & nutritious meal!! Thumbs up!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
Made these changes: omitted salt, substituted onion powder for onion salt, used 2 dressing mixes, added 1 1/2 tsp. dried onion, and added 2 beef bouillion cubes to the water. Cooked on low for about 14 hours; shredded meat and refrigerated meat and juice separately overnight. In the morning, I skimmed the fat off the juice, and returned the juice & meat to the slow cooker, along with some chopped green pepper, on high to reheat for a couple hours. Served with horseradish and provolone cheese. Was a hit at our family reunion! Leftovers (if any!) reheat well for a quick lunch.

Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
these were so yummy, and we didn't even use the dressing because we didn't have any on hand. the kick from the garlic along with the sweet, tangy pineapple (which is so delicious warm & grilled!) is a wonderful combination. we also marinated and grilled a few of the peppers. served on big, honey wheat buns. super! everyone cleaned their plates!

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
Great recipe! The only changes: used raspberry vinegar instead of sherry and only half the oil; marinated only the chicken for about an hour; used frozen pineapple instead of canned; added green, red, and yellow peppers. I only had half the meat, but made a full recipe of marinade, and it was all used. What wasn't soaked up by the chicken I added just a touch of cornstarch and cooked until thickened, then brushed over the kabobs when i turned them during grilling. Everyone thought they were delicious! Mom wants me to add mushrooms next time and Dad suggested putting onion on the skewers next to the chicken to give them a little more zing. May have to try that next time--there definitely WILL be a next time! 2 thumbs up

Jammin' Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
i used the jamaican jerk seasoning, and this made a wonderfully flavorful meal when served with my family's favorite recipe for jamaican rice and peas(which are actually red beans). my sisters thought it was too strongly spiced for them but i enjoyed the flavor-punch.

Seafood Linguine

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
yum!! this dish is filling, delicious, and surprisingly pretty low fat. i didn't follow the recipe at all as far as veggie measurements went-- i added lots more, as i'm a huge vegetable fan, and they truly make the meal! i also left out the scallops and used more shrimp and imitation crab meat. with all the different colored veggies, it is a beautiful dish. thumbs up!!!

Quick and Easy Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2004
I really enjoyed this recipe! i was looking for a meat-free, but still filling and nutritious meal for a friday during lent. this was definitely a great choice. my mom's always made stuffed green peppers, which i'm not a fan of, but the red peppers were awesome!! i used some kind of canned italian diced tomatos with onions to kick up the flavor a little. this was a quick and easy meal that i'll definitely make again!

Alfredo Light

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2004
i was looking for a way to enjoy one of my favorites, alfredo, without the guilt trip that usually follows. this is the answer!!! this alfredo is creamy and YUMMY!! i used a can of evaporated skim milk, (plus about 1/2 c. skim milk- to equal 2 c.) to give it a little more creaminess. i think it also helps with the thickening, because i didn't have problems like other reviewers. fixing the broccoli with the pasta works great! i've served this with both shrimp and chicken; both get gobbled up quickly! this is a KEEPER!

Easy White Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2003
Yum! This was the first time I'd ever made or even tasted white chili, and it was delicious!! I downscaled the recipe some because I only had 4 cans of beans. I only used 2 cans of broth, even though it called for more, and I'm glad. This was a very tasty soup and was excellent reheated. Definitely will make again!!!

Warm Chicken Ranch Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
good idea! i didn't exactly follow the recipe, but used the idea of it. i just reheated grilled chicken from the previous night, made rice and stirred some dressing into it, and let everyone decide what they preferred in their wrap. the chicken, tangy ranch, and veggies (we used lettuce and fresh tomatoes) go together for a nice taste.

Baked Chicken with Peaches

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
yum!! the peaches on this were great! it tasted like dessert for the main course. i put in a few more peaches than the recipe called for, and i would recommend that, because the peaches are so tasty. some of the chicken was dry, and i would have liked my juices to thicken a little more. but the peaches were excellent. great served with rice.
