Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
Wonderful concept, but it would have been bland without additional spices. I put 2 T of medium hot chili powder, 2 t oregano, 2 t cayenne, 1 t salt, 2 t garlic powder and 2 t onion powder. used 2.5 cans of meijer red enchilada sauce instead of taco sauce. 1 can for layer underneath shells and 1.5 cans for on top of shells. I used lean ground turkey (1 lb) and a full package of fat free cream cheese and it only made enough to stuff about 13 shells so next time I will double the meat and use 2 full pkgs cream cheese. topped with chopped fresh cilantro, chopped tomatoes, sour cream and chopped green onion and served with fat free re fried beans . I also made this before I went to work, popped in my fridge and when I got home I took out of fridge and preheated the oven. Easy dinner! and delicious :]

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
i did exactly as the top reviewer Jen did with the crab cakes and it worked brilliantly. made her aioli as well (that took a big 2 mins to make) used dijon instead od dry mustard, minced garlic instead of garlic powder, and served w fresh salad. WATCH the crab cakes once you put them in the hot oil. abt 2.5 mins a side. they cook QUICKLY!! also expect a little bit of heat from them, but the good "warm you up" kinda heat. yum - 30 minute meal!! made 4 large cakes.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
I sauteed 4 minced cloves garlic, 1/2 c celery and 1/2 c onion in olive oil until transparent, and threw that and all other ingredients ( identical to recipe except no salt and a very full CUP of cooked diced ham ) into my crock pot and cooked on low 6 hours. added 1/2 t fresh ground black pepper, 1 t smoked spanish paprika and 1 t garlic salt to the mixture as well. 1 hour before soup was ready i made up the roux, identical to recipe over the stovetop in a saucepan ( a whisk works amazing as well as straining the flour into the saucepan ) and added all to crockpot mixture. ( i also used 2% milk ) the last hour it thickens up quite a bit, make sure you stir stir stir! i also topped each serving with chopped green onions. heavenly delicious creamy chowder-like soup. mmmm cant wait to make again. but next time i may use 4 cups chopped 'toes instead of 3 1/2! EDIT: next time i will dbl recipe, original only made 3ish bowls. not enough for seconds or leftovers for hubby and i.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I first added 1/2 cup chopped onion with 1/2 cup chopped celery to my saucepan with butter and while that all was sauteing I cubed 3 skinless boneless chicken breasts (1.5 lbs) added them, 3 diced potatoes, and 2 cups frozen mixed veggies to my large pot and filled it with almost 2 cups chicken broth ( thats how much it took to cover chicken and veggies) boiled that mixture for 15 mins, while that was boiling I let my frozen premade crusts thaw out.. and followed the recipe almost exactly from there but added an extra 1/4 cup of milk and chicken broth to the liquid mixture with 1 t garlic salt, 1 t poultry seasoning and 1/2 t ground pepper. came out pretty good, but even with adding more liquid it still ended up needing more gravy!! will make more for next time! EDIT: leftovers the day after i made it, since it wasn't as saucy as i would have liked I melted 1/3 cup butter over the stove, added 1/3 c sifted flour, 2/3 c milk, 1 3/4 c chicken broth, 1 t poultry seasoning, 1 t garlic salt, and 1/2 t fresh ground pepper, whisked over medium heat for 3 minutes and turned heat to medium low and once it started simmering it turned into beautiful smooth and rich gravy! plenty to pour over the pot pie slices, and left a big bowl to refrigerate and pour over mashed potatoes some time this week. note- it isnt the most beautiful golden brown gravy, but no gravy really is unless you add some browning to it!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
i used 1 lb jiimmy dean zesty hot italian sausage, 1 cup chopped white onion, FOUR cloves minced garlic, 6 beef bouillon cubes dissolved in 6 cups boiling water (will use 7 next time) 1 cup water, 3/4 c Merlot wine, 1.5 BIG cans diced italian seasoned tomatoes (perfect amt and you could not taste any diff between those and fresh) 1 1/4 cup of the pre sliced carrots you buy in a bag with the crinkle indentations in them, A FULL TBL fresh chopped basil, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, a few pinches of my mixed italian herb spice, 1 1/2 cups sliced "half moon" zucchini, (perfect amt) 8 oz fresh 3 cheese tortellini, and 3 TBL fresh parsley. Besides my few minor adjustments I followed the recipe EXACTLY and it literally could be served at Olive Garden. Fantastic, a lot like OG's Minestrone but with pasta and spicy sausage. Cant wait to make again. PS doooont put any salt in this soup if you use the bouillon cubes (I used lite sodium and without that it would have been too salty) and esp if you use the canned tomatoes :]

Pico De Gallo

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
this recipe would have 5 stars if it was written as i doctored it up. i doubled the recipe and used a half bunch of cilantro - popped that in the food processor, 1 garlic clove, a full onion, 3 green onions (all minced in the food processor) 6 roma tomatoes, chopped, a pinch of salt and pepper, 2 fresh limes squeezed and 3 minced jalapenos (seeded). with this recipe you get a cereal- bowl amount of pico and it isnt that dry is is packed full of flavor and slightly watered as it should be. enjoy!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
i followed this recipe to a t, except i used EXTRA lean ground beef, and mixed everything in my kitchen aid mixture which pretty much made the meal effortless... also added several dashes of Worcestershire and Tabasco to the mixture before padding it into the pan as well as thoroughly sifting the french onion soup mix into it. Oh, the steak sauce i used was Tamarind steak sauce from Jamaica... and the glaze on top as suggested by someone else was 3T KETCHUP 1T HONEY and 1t Worcestershire. i sprinkled fresh red pepper flakes over the whole thing. baked exactly one hour and i served it with Velveeta and bacon scalloped potatoes. the loaf had just enough spice to warm you up, but next time i am adding a layer of that glaze in the middle of the loaf, it really completed the dish!! thanks connie!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
i am a very experienced cook and due to the high amount of people raving about this recipe i figured i would give it a go. i followed it exactly as others had advised and it was probably on my top 5 list of UGLIEST most COLORLESS dishes. it was overly salty and was not at all worth the mess/dishes it left to be washed, the amount of time you spend mincing garlic, or the HUGE sodium intake. the only thing decent i have to say about it is that the chicken was very moist and i also made fettuccine noodles to rest the chicken upon. still a salty dinner not worth the time.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
i completely altered this so i could make it in my crockpot. I used 9 cups packaged bread cubes, the same amt of sausage (jimmy dean breakfast), the same amt of celery, onion, FRESH herbs (remember to double the amt for fresh), 2 golden delicious apples, 1 c CRAISINS, 2 c chicken stock (used more because of pre packaged bread cubes) 4 Tb margarine, and 1.5 eggs whisked. This made an INSANE amt of stuffing and my family RAVED about it. perfectly moist but not tooo moist, wonderful flavor, SO easy to use a crockpot. 4 hrs on low, make sure to stir often during the last hr and always pam your pot!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
My husband has said my pulled pork could easily win contests. I buy 3 lbs pork shoulder and sprinkle jerk seasoning and french thyme very heavily on the shoulder as a rub and chop a medium white onion, throw that into the pot/partially on top of shoulder and pour 1.5 cups cola over the entire thing. set it on low to cook 8.5 hours, then cut the cord and hand pull the pork to a thick--medium consistency and return it to the crock pot, pour 2 cups sweet baby ray's bbq over everything and set it on high to cook 30-40 mins. serve on hamburger buns with twice baked potatoes and a bud lite and you've got yourself an amazing dinner, plus about 4 lunches and 2 more dinners worth of appetizers. that is if its just you and your hubby ;)
