Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
Great base to start with. Here are my tweaks. 4 cups of veggie broth instead of the water. 1/4 cup tomato paste that I sauteed in with the veggies. 2 cans tomato sauce. 2 cups carrots, 2 cans beans(drained/rinsed), 2 cups of frozen fresh green beans, 3/4 cup of Cabernet Sauvignon, I also used dried basil and oregano and used about 2.5T-ish of each. I used a 1.5 cups of dried pasta that I cooked separately, drained then dumped directly into the soup.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
The recipe is fantastic, I used raspberry white wine vinegar since I had it on hand and I used 1/2 and it was plenty... I would even reduce it more if vinegar isn't your thing. I served it with Parmesan couscous and roasted asparagus! I can't wait to try it with other fruit jam's. I've got a blackberry one to try next!

Italian Cheese Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
AMAZING. I used all natural boneless pork loin chops, thick cut (1in). Used dried thyme, granulated garlic and a touch of lawrys salt in the cheese and breadcrumb mix and packed it in really good. For the outside I sprinkled with smoked paprika, lawrys's seasoned salt and fresh ground pepper. Seared in a little mix of olive oil and real butter. The key is making a small slit but sweeping the knife to make the pocket. Keep the opening small but big enough to pack the stuffing in. Use a VERY sharp knife.

Excellent base here are my tweaks: I kept everything the same and added the following: 1/4 pound ground pork. 1 yellow onion nearly caramelized added to the meat mix. sauteed garlic in meat mix. Seasoned meat mix with lawrys seasoned salt and several shakes of Worcestershire sauce. For the topping: I added Worcestershire and lawry's to taste. (You can use your favorite bbq sauce too.)

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
This is a great base recipe, here are my tweaks: Sauteed onions and garlic first, then added the beef and cooked it all together. After draining the beef and combining the soups, I used fresh frozen veggies. Mixed it all together and added enough Irish Killians beer to make it soupy. I let it simmer the alcohol out before doing the rest. Mashed Yukon gold potatoes with cream and butter for the topping. Even the kids liked it!! To die for.

Shredded Beef for Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
Followed the recipe exactly...did not care for it. Meat wouldn't shred, swimming in juice, dry as a bone. Meat was flavorless...a waste of money.
