Campbell's Kitchen Turkey and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
I made this using 16oz frozen broccoli pieces (defrost / cooked in microwave), but in addition I also added 1/2c sliced steamed fresh carrots; & 1/2c each chopped yellow onion and celery saute in butter. Also added 1/3c dried cranberries & 1/2c almond slivers (for crunch!). Instead of adding milk, I used the water drained from the broccoli and 2 cans of cr. of mushroom soup. We made a casserole AND 4 smaller single-serving ramekin dishes for taking to work. My family really enjoys this.

Zesty Carrots

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Wow, definitely will make again! I used 1 lb bag of baby carrots (julienne). I had only straight jar horseradish, so I used half as much and added 1/4c sour cream. I made the topping first, and the moisture was absorbed quickly by the breadcrumbs while I waited for the carrots to boil. Next time I will prepare the topping immediately before placing on carrots so it can "spread" easier. Served these carrots alongside slow cooker beef tips & mushrooms in wine sauce and boiled noodles. YUMMY!

Super Duper Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Excellent recipe! Make sure to grease & flour muffin pans heavily. We made regular size (no paper liners) & Mini Muffins (with paper liner & greased the lip of the pan for expansion of batter above the liner). Cooked minis for 12 min. Used H&H w/ vinegar for the "sour" milk. Batter is quite thick, which is OK. Zucchini leeches water when cooked, so they came out super moist and perfect. Very hardy muffins, with just a touch of sweetness. I can't stop eating them.

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Rating is with these modifications: Added 2 tsps jar ginger. Two Green Jalapeno instead of red peppers. Added 1/8 tsp Asian Sriracha Hui Chili Sauce (use sparingly if you don't like spicy food). Doubled the teriyaki sauce in recipe. I used a smart Hamilton Beach slow cooker with probe set at 160 degrees on LOW [it turns itself to Warm setting when done]. Approx cook time was 2.5 hrs for slice-tender meat. Thickened sauce in pan w/flour on stove top. Served w/white rice w/almond slivers & parsley and steamed broccoli spears. Husband and I give it an A+.

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
5 star Outstanding muffins with these modifications: Added 12 oz blueberry yogurt & 1c fresh blueberries, plus zest one orange and put 3/4 amount in batter and reserve 1/4 to top muffins with sprinkle of sugar. Important: generously grease & flour muffin pans. Fill only 3/4 full as these do expand quite a bit and run over the muffin cups.

Zucchini Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Wow, I love this recipe! I MINCED the onions, celery and carrots, and DICED the zucchini. We prefer a chunky soup so I did not puree it. The wine in the recipe gives it depth and character, so don't skimp on the wine. I added 3/4c of leftover shredded baked chicken and my sour cream had chives in it, which tasted great. Sprinkled a little dry parsley on top of bowls for a pretty presentation and served with Panini sandwiches. This would be an excellent scallops or crab cream-base soup.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
We live in New Mexico and like our enchiladas hot. I added 1/2 can green enchilada sauce to both the bottom of casserole & on the top of rolled enchilada. To ingredients I added 1 whole seeded & chopped jalapeno pepper; 4oz chopped green chili; 1T jar minced garlic; and 2tsp cumin seed powder. After baking 30 min I uncovered the casserole and added 2 cups total of shredded jalapeno flavored & colby/jack cheeses and returned dish to oven 5 minutes more until melted. Serve with sour cream, diced tomatoes & shred lettuce, and slices of ripe avocado. Note: leftovers tend to be spicier the next day.

Zucchini Tomato Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
5 stars - we added 1/2 c shred Monterrey jack in addition to the Parmesan cheese; 4oz sliced can mushrooms. Red onion. Tossed in some dry spices: garlic powder and onion powder. Pouring the egg / milk mixture caused it to run over the top so I dumped the whole think in a bowl, mixed lightly and then poured back into the pie tin. Sprinkled with dry parsley & S&P. We are at high altitude and had to cook it an additional 7-8 minutes to cook the middle fully. *** not strong flavors, so it complimented entree well.

Cuban Picadillo

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
My husband, 18-yr-old daughter and I just loved this. We incorporated a lot of the suggestions: added 1/4c rinsed capers, used 1c golden raisins, one 6oz can of tomato paste AND 3 tomatoes chopped; 1/3 c fresh cilantro; used only 1c sliced green olives. We served it with the Coconut Jasmine Rice another poster suggested (Yummy, A++ on that rice!). Recipe makes enough for 2nds tonight and lunches tomorrow. Thanks for sharing this excellent recipe.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
I give it 5 stars, my daughter gives it 4 stars. She says they aren't sweet enough, but I prefer muffins with just a touch of sweet. I followed the recipe exactly as written except I used mini semi sweet chips.

Chicken Jalfarezi

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
I cooked this in a 4 Quart slow cooker on low for 6-7 hrs. Did not need extra fluid. Used only two raw boneless chicken breasts cut up. Added 1/2c whole canned chickpeas, 1/4 c golden raisins, and doubled the spices. But, still needed a bit more kick, so next time I will add more spices with heat (e.g., HOT chili powder). We served over Couscous.

Egg Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
We altered this quite a bit for Southwest flair, reduced serving size to 2 people. ************** We used two lightly toasted (in oven/ to crisp) 8" flour tortillas instead of pizza crust, & omit the soup & milk in recipe. Spread 1/4c can (or jarred) green chili over tortillas. Put 2 cooked scrambled eggs, with 1/2c of saute chopped red peppers & onions on top of tortillas. Added 4 slices of cooked microwave bacon coarsely chopped & topped with shredded Mexican style cheeses. Cooked directly on top oven rack under broiler until cheese is bubbly (watch that it doesn't burn!). This is a great late night snack also. Any topping broiled on a tortilla works great.

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
My family just loved this recipe. As others suggested, we sliced open and stuffed the boneless chicken breasts, secured with toothpicks. To "sauce" in pan we added a little flour to thicken before we added spinach. Add 1 & 1/2 bag of baby spinach & chopped tomatoes the last 5-6 minutes so it retained it's bright color while it wilted down. Sprinkled a little feta cheese crumbles on top when we served it. ******** Served over couscous mixed in with 4oz can saute chopped canned mushrooms and sliced green onions. A+ recipe.
