Roasted Swiss Chard with Feta

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
We got 2 giant leaves from a kids event at a local farm today. Not having the heart to toss them and wondering what they would taste like I deced to try this dish. 2 large leaves was enough of a side for a family of 4. My 7 and 9 yr old LOVED it. I was so excited they liked another green veggies. WIll be making this again for sure. Followed exactly.

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
My 7 and 9 year old loved this. Was a great way to use up veggies from the garden. One recommendation is that is does need more sauce. Since I needed to roast alot of veggies for another dish I actually sprayed them with Olive Oil and pan roasted them in the oven at 400 for about 20 minutes. I had the garlic on there as well and when it came out of the oven I used a garlic press to squeeze the garlic on the roasted veggies. I did use the one can of diced tomatoes but it did not look like it was going to be saucey enough so then I ended up mixing in a about 1 1/2 cups of tomato basil pasta sauce into the veggies before pouring it on over pasta. Everyone then asked for more sauce on the side. All in all it was a keeper!

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
I was excited to try the recipie based on the high reviews. I was a bit dissappointed. I made as indicated but cut down on the red wine vinegar to 1/4 cup based on other reviews and I figured I could add as needed to taste. Overall it made way too much dressing and the pasta seems to be swimming in oil and still has too strong of a vinegar taste. Next time I may make in a salad dressing bottle and add as needed. We prefer to taste more of the pasta and veggies not the dressing. The combination of veggies works great- the dressing a bit too much.

Never Fail Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
The cookie was good. The batter was thick , however mine did spread out a bit thinner then I would of liked- I tried cooking one batch on parchment paper to see if that made a different and it did only slightly. I think maybe the amount of butter caused them to really expand when cooking.

Mushroom Oven Omelet

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I am not a mushroom eater but have learned that this is one of the few veggies that my 8 year old will eat. She loved this one. We made it as a light dinner. Easy and fast to make. Did exactly as the recipie calls for. Althought I do not eat mushroom I did taste it and it was good- if you are a mushroom lover this is a must try. I did use premade bacon that I get at Costco since i hate cooking bacon. That actually made the prep work alot easier.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
I tried this recipie tonight in preparation for a new recipie for our New Years party. Everyone ate it but no one was nuts about it. I think it was a bit bland as compared to the tomatoe sauce lasagnas. I did follow the recipie exactly. In order for me to make a recipie again I like it to be to something I can not wait to have again- I was dissapointed I did not like this as much as I thought I would. It had such high reviews.

Chicken with Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
We eat alot of chicken and I am always looking for another favorite recipie. We try a new recipie about once per week. This was just OK- the comment from the family was- "not our favorite" The chicken lacked flavor- but the sauce was good. I did add some corn starch to thicken up sauce and use over both the chicken and buttered noodles. Most likely will not make this again.

Chocolate Cream Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
I will never by the boxed kind again. This was amazing- just the right fix for someone who wants a yummy chocolate dessert when a cookie will not stop the chocolate craving. Tastes like the batter for a fudge cake- I read the reviews and used the ingredients exactly However I did them in a different order- I melted the chocolate with the butter in a sauce pan and then slowly alternated and added the sugar mixture and 1 1/2 cups of milk. I had reserved 1/2 milk and had mixed that with the eggs yolks and then I slowly added that in while whisking. It thicken up and came out creamy with not lumps or gritty texture.

Curried Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This was a very quick dish to make and a great way to use up left over Turkey. I used massaman curry paste in place of the curry powder and added less then what it called for and then added more to adjust for our taste. My 6 year old had 2 helpings! Will make this again using chicken.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
This was excellent- they came out perfect. I did do the one thing that others suggested and that was filling the hole with frosting before topping it with the cherry. I did not drizzle additional frosting on top when it came out because the frosting never got very hard and I would not have been able to stack them in the cookie tin. They were excellent and will make for my next cookie exchange.

Ham Bone Soup

perfect for those easter leftovers- serve with a salad for a perfect week day dinner. Easy to prepare in a crockpot. I added corn and carrots, did not have peppers so I left them out. Also added 2 bay leaves.

Rugelach

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
this was fantastic. It is light and can be served for breakfast, brunch or even dessert. It is not super sweet pastry so it is hard to stop at just one! I made this for Easter and one of the guys ate 9 of them for dessert. I found the dough in went from crumbly to mushy when made in the cuisinart- but it did come out perfect in the end. I used the filling suggested. Next time I may try other fillings for a change.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
This was fantastic! My hubby had 3 helpings. I cooked 2 frozen Costco chicken breast in my crock pot with 5 cups water, 3 chicken bullions and 3 whole cloves of garlic. While it was cooking i steamed the potatoes and carrots and put in fridge. I think cooling the potatoes helped keep them from breaking up when it was all mixed with the sauce. The sauce is amazing. I actually used the broth from the crockpot- I only used 2 cups of broth and then one cup of water- it is important to taste here to judge how salty you like it. I actually cut the salt down to 1/2 tsp since the broth was salty enough. I used pilsbery pie crust and precooked it for 5 minutes on 400 with a wash of egg. I also put an egg wash on the top crust which gave it a beautiful shiney finish.

Apple-Cranberry Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
Had to cut down on the aomunt of cinammon to 1 tsp. I added all 3 tsp of cinnammon and it seemed overpowering so I actually washed it off the apples and only added 1 tsp instead. It was yummy served warm with vanilla ice cream.
