Hot Cheesy Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
This is yummy! Here's some tips: I used fresh baby spinach, so I didn't add ALL the liquid once I sauteed it in wine, butter and garlic. It would have made the dip too runny. I maybe added 1-2 tbls. Which is too bad because the liquid tasted so good! The wine really adds a great depth to the flavor so try not to skip using it, if you can. Don't let this cool too long once it's out - serve it immediately for best results. Oh - and I will chop up the spinach next time. I may also add marinated artichoke hearts. . that would add a great acid base. This will be a keeper!

Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
LOVED this recipe! I don't normally like acorn squash but the combination was incredibly tasty. And this isn't too think - it's a very comforting soup that paired great with shredded Mozarella on top.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2014
I love this but modify the recipe above significantly. You can really ruin this as long as you have enough sauce so customize it for your family's tastes. I sauté 1lb hamburger, 1lb ground sausage with the onion and garlic. I use Ricotta cheese mixed w/one egg and then toss the noodles in it before adding it to the pan. I put my sauce down first, but still spray the pan with Pam. I add one 15oz can of tomato sauce to the jarred sauce. I use a whole brick of Mozzarella for this. I slice the Mozzarella and layer the slices as I make it, ending with mozzarella on top. And yes - cover it! Depending on how deep your pan is, will determine how long it needs to cook. For my recipe, I need 60 minutes minimum, then I take the foil off, lower the temp to 350 deg, and bake it for another 20-30 minutes until everything is bubbling and gooey.

Roast Pork with Apple and Onion Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
family loved this. It's pretty salty (and I love salt. . ) so next time I will use lemon juice and add my own salt/pepper (instead of using the lemon pepper seasoning), and I will try to find low-sodium pork (or beef) gray. It was very yummy though - goes great with mash potatoes!

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
Loved this - but made the following modifications/additions: 4 cloves garlic, 1 tsp fresh ginger, 2 tbls brown sugar, 3/4 cup roasted cashews, carrots, cubed potato, snap peas, 1/2 tsp cayenne, 5 tbls curry powder, 1 cup chunk pineapple, used coconut oil (instead of vegetable oil) plus one tbls of ghee, added enough low sodium chicken stock to almost cover, simmered for at least a hour. Served with rice. This was a great recipe to use and modify - thank you so much for posting!

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2015
This is a great quick fix for dinner. I cut my chicken breasts in half (which means less cooking time, maybe 30 minutes). I coat in egg, then bread with crushed Ritz crackers that has garlic salt, onion powder, and pepper in it as well. Be careful with adding too many spices that have salt in them due to the Rtiz crackers already having salt on them. I melt butter and drizzle it over the chicken after I put them in the pan (I also add some to the bottom of the 9x13 before I place the chicken so they don't stick). I sprinkle some shaved garlic in the pan so it can marinate w/the butter. I increase the butter a little b/c I use the sauce at the end for rice or noodles. This is the type of recipe that you can play with quite a bit and suit to taste - but this one is a winner for me and my family. Have fun!
