Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2007
Should be 10 stars. I made a HUGE batch of this based on the reviews, and am SO glad I did. I tried it before adding part cream/part coconut milk, and it was good and flavorful, but the creamy mixture brought it all together wonderfully! The house smelled great for more than a day. I LOVE this! - adding to original review - I used a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of red and yellow curries, and also added the same amount of Garam Masala as I did the curry. I have also stopped using butter, and switched to coconut oil and all coconut milk instead of cream. Pinot Nior was a perfect wine to have with this!

Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
To add more flavor, I pounded the chicken out and made a filling of feta, roasted red peppers, garlic, pepper and finely chopped mushrooms. I coated the inside with pesto first, then filled it and covered the tops with salt, pepper, pesto and then the prosciutto. AWESOME!!! ADDING: After making this several times, I don't care for the texture of the Prosciutto after cooking. Now, I coat the outside of the chicken w/Pesto, S & P. Then on the inside, I do Pesto, S & P, Prosciutto, then the filling. Fold and cook. PERFECTION!!!

Outrageous Warm Chicken Nacho Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I doubled this, using one can mild Rotel, one hot, and ground beef instead of chicken. Also added spicy Velveeta (the entire block), Chipotle Taco seasoning, sautéed red onions instead of green, can of Green Chiles instead of Jalapeno and a very large can of black beans.

Avocado Tzatziki

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
I've made this a couple of times with the following changes - 1C Greek Yogurt, 1/2C Cilantro & 1/4C Mint. Instead of Red Pepper flakes, I've used Cayenne, but more recently tried a Jalapeno pepper (seeded) and that was the recipe I'll forever use. Everything goes into the blender. SO GOOD ON EVERYTHING!!!

Chicken Pot Pie IV

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2002
This is an instant favorite in our home. I didn't have any chicken breast thawed out, so I used a can of precooked chicken (10 oz I think) and it was perfect! You could also use left over turkey. Next time I will add a can of mixed veggies as well. Both my 3 yr old & 1 yr old ate a ton of this-NO left overs. I'll make two next time!

Quick Creamy Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2007
REALLY good. I added chopped celery and cooked them with the onions in the bacon grease (that step has a LOT to do with the great flavor). I also lowered the milk to 1.5Cups, added a cup of sour cream and stirred in 1C of Cheddar just before serving. EVERYONE loved it, and the leftovers were great too. Adding to original review: I was short on time, so I didn't cube the potatoes (just cut into big chunks), but right before adding all the creamy ingrd's, I used a potato masher to smoosh up the softened potatoes. Worked GREAT, and made the soup nice and thick! Also, I've saved some bacon grease so when I don't want to use (or have) bacon, I just use the grease when cooking the onions and still get the great flavor!

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
We hadn't tried Quinoa yet and this was a great start! I was a bit worried that it would be dry as there didn't seem to be any "saucy" ingredients, and since I was going to have to use canned diced tomato's, I didn't drain all of the juice off. This was delicious and I'm excited to try it with fresh tomato!

Mom's Baked Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Fabulous!!! We didn't have Heavy Cream, so we used Half & Half, and also didn't cut the crusts off - it added a nice texture! We will make these again & again and again...

Biscuit-Topped Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Knowing that we wanted leftovers, I added to this recipe and cooked it in a 9x13 dish. I boiled just over a pound of chicken breasts, and while that was cooking, I mixed the following: 1 can cream potato, 1 can cream broccoli, 1 can sliced potato (drained), 16 oz frozen veggies, 1 cup milk, 3/4 tsp thyme, 1/2 cup cheddar, 1 cup sour cream, a good dash of onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika and a generous amount of fresh ground black pepper. Once the chicken was done I chopped it and added to the rest of the ingredients. Cooked until bubbling and topped with biscuits as stated. I'd write and post this as its own recipe, but the ones I have posted have never been published, so there it is.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
I did add sliced onion and diced garlic to the pan in addition to doubling the sauce ingredients. I seared the meat before putting it in the oven. INCREDIBLE!!!

Maple Glazed Chicken with Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
We LOVED it!!! I doubled it so we would have leftovers, and also added a couple tablespoons of butter when mashing the sweet potatoes. It doesn't specify as to use real Maple Syrup or not, but that's what I used. Thanks for sharing!!!

Gingered Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
The Ginger brings such a TASTY zing to the sweet potato's! I had to change things around to make it work for me. I melted the butter in a sauce pan (NO OLIVE OIL), added all ingredients except for the sweet potato's (PLUS 1 TEASPOON VANILLA) and then put the sliced up potato's in and coated them. Poured all of it into a 9x9 glass baking dish, covered it, and stuck it into the fridge until about an hour before it was time to eat. Once removed from the fridge, I stirred again, baked at 350 (stirring halfway thru cooking time) for almost an hour. This allowed me to prep the dish way earlier in the day, and it was SOOOO easy & SOOO good! Yes, a bit sweet, but that's how they're supposed to be!

Fresh From the Vine Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
What a great recipe! I did change/add the following and it was simply outstanding!!! I doubled it, and purchased the 19oz bag of frozen Tortellini from the freezer section as it was WAY more affordable. I added zucchini, a yellow pepper and red onion to the tomato in the oven and threw all veggies in a bag and added oil and spices that way (easier, and you use less oil). Save some of the pasta water to add to the entire mixture if it's a little too dry, and then top with a quick splash of quality EVOO, sea salt, crushed red pepper flakes and crumbled goat cheese.

Classic Goulash

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
We LOVED this. I used a recipe from this site for the Italian seasoning, did Worst. sauce instead of soy, added a bag of frozen 3 pepper & onion blend and added a tablespoon of Red Wine Vinegar. I had grnd. round, and used whole wheat pasta. Enough left for a couple of lunches and froze enough for another dinner. UPDATING: Having made this several times, I now know NOT to cook the pasta as long as suggested - unless you want a nasty consistency when leftovers are reheated. Starting checking for doneness after 10 minutes.

Chocolate Cake Surprise

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2003
I have made this cake TWICE this weekend at the request of my son, husband & MIL. The first time, after baked, the cake mix "enveloped" the cream cheese mixture, and wasn't as tall after cooling. The second time, the cream cheese pretty much stayed on top. BOTH times, it was EXCELLENT! So easy, so good...

Curried Chicken Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
Pretty tasty! I think it could have used some chopped red onion. If you're making this for entertaining, I would recommend red grapes over green for the visual factor.

Mango Tango Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: May 5, 2002
This is FANTASTIC! I made this for my son's 3rd b-day party, and it was gone in minutes, mostly due to my son eating great amounts of it! A perfect BBQ side dish as well, and, it makes a yummy relish for grilled chicken & fish. Updated: I now also add 1 tsp Red Wine Vinegar, double the cumin, a generous squeeze of lime, and a tsp of sea salt.

Easy, Cheesy Tortellini Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Fabulous and easy. Based on experience, I didn't pre-cook the tortellini, and instead just mixed everything in one big pot, spread into the 9x13, and put it into the oven. I also didn't have spinach, so I instead used a bag of three pepper & onion mix I had in the freezer.

Four Cheese Margherita Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
Y U M. We did make a few changes - used pesto, not olive oil and didn't marinate the tomato. Added cracked pepper to the pesto, a little less basil since there was already basil in the pesto, heirloom tomato (I find roma's have very little flavor) and fresh mozz cheese, not shredded. The biggest change? We used naan for the crust and it was FABULOUS!!!!
