Green Chile Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2004
Sooo Good! I am at a loss for how so few and such basic ingredients can create such a delicious, filling soup. Truly. This was simple, quick and such a mouth-watering change of pace from the usual fare. My variations: 1 - 12.5 oz can of chicken, undrained; 1 - 4 oz can of chopped chiles, undrained; approx 1 tsp of garlic paste versus powder; approx 1 Tbls of dried, minced onion; and I only had time to simmer for about 10 minutes. Thank you, Ann, for sharing this winner! I can't wait to serve it to company.

Easy Cheesy Chicken I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2004
This was just the jumping off point I needed for making dinner tonight. Following the advice of other reviewers, I added brown minute rice and half a bag of baby broccoli florets. I also added about 1.5 cups of milk and skipped the sour cream all together. No extra salt for me and I used the healthier choice soups. Oh and I left out the mushroom soup--sounded like there would be too much sauce with it & I was aiming for the Cheesy part of this recipe. Bought some low fat cheddar to sprinkle on top. Yum!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2004
What terrific sauce! We didn't have the time to let the flavors stew together and we left out the anchovies, but it was still just amazing. No need to buy Ragu anymore! Thanks for the great recipe--I'm not one to want my pizza "heavy on the sauce," but this mix changes my mind!

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
Well, I really wanted this to be great. Instead, I got not so great. Don't get me wrong--it wasn't horrible, just not exactly what my tastebuds were hoping for. I'm even a super fan of curry. I used just a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and it was still too much for me. I'll consider trying it one more time--maybe it was something in the air tonight.

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2004
This is what I crave when I'm wanting comforting soup! Definitely omit the salt, but do add chopped carrots. I've also added garlic because I like that flavor. I completely skip the thickening step because I prefer a broth-style chicken soup. The high quality canned chicken sold by Costco is an easy way to handle the chicken when you need a shortcut--you don't even need to drain it. We eat up every little drop when I serve this soup. It's fun to deliver it to friends who are feeling under the weather, if you have the time.

Calico Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2004
This was one of my favorite dishes to eat as a kid, but I hadn't had it in years and years until I tried this recipe. What a nostalgic trip for my tastebuds! My mom would take calico beans to picnics and potlucks and now I do, too. I don't always add the ground meat (I use turkey when I do) or the bacon in case my vegetarian friends are joining us or if I am serving the beans on the side. I also add roughly 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and 1/4ish tsp of celery salt if I don't have fresh celery on hand. Otherwise, I make it as is and enjoy it every time!

Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2004
This was really good! I was craving a restaurant-style pasta dish for dinner, but this was better because I made it in my own kitchen. I'm looking forward to another shrimp sale so I can make it again! :-)

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2004
I love this dish and have made it on several occasions. So far, I haven't received anything but compliments. I've come to use this recipe more as a guideline than a bible. My variations: I choose the Simply Potatoes Southwestern Style potatoes for added flavor and I always double (sometimes even triple) the eggs. Often, I will use a couple of 'real' eggs, then 2 - 4 servings of 'fake' eggs. I've also included a cup or so of broccoli florets and regularly use a cheese combo like cheddar jack. I like adding a tsp of dry mustard powder, too. Feel free to use half & half or milk--whatever your have on hand--it doesn't seem to influence the final results too drastically one way or the other in my experience. The leftovers are great for weekdays when you have less time, but need more protein than cereal offers. Have fun with this and enjoy your hearty breakfasts!

Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
We enjoyed this hearty stew for dinner last night. I deglazed the pan with sherry cooking wine and added a scoop & a half of dried french onion soup mix as well as fresh chopped celery. I used about 6 cups of water, too, but because I added the potatoes after about 45 min, then cooked for another hour, I got to skip the thickening step. DH said it's the best he's had. Not bad considering it was my first try at beef stew. :-)

Apple-Raisin French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2003
Amazing! I made it for Easter breakfast and, as I recall, followed the recipe exactly. I was sure to soak the baguette well. Serve the portions upside down and they're already 'topped'. The leftovers were just as delicious the next day. My mother-in-law even demanded the recipe... :-)

Pumpkin Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2001
Yum! The pumpkin is subtle, but adds a little something interesting to your average corn meal muffin. I have served these as a compliment to bean enchiladas and also to creamy corn chowder as well as for breakfast. They were eaten right up and guests think I'm some kinda cook! :-)

Creamy Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2001
What a delicious recipe! I love using the tofu to make the chowder so creamy--a great way to make a corn carb dish gain some protein and healthful soy. I just took this to my office holiday potluck and the raving didn't stop. I wished I could have claimed the recipe. I'm 100% there with the common comment that 1 Teaspoon of red pepper flakes is Plenty. Also, I reserved more of the chunky vegetables & less broth to help preserve the creamiest of consistencies. I used red, yellow & green bell peppers for color. I'm taking it to Christmas dinner this year, too! Thanks for the great chowdah!
