Quick Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
Made this last night and it was very good! I took someone else's suggestion of a bit more lemon juice and a bit of curry powder which was a great touch. I did not bother to cook the chicken first and it was completely done. I baked it covered and then I sprinkled some seasoned bread crumbs on and let them brown a bit uncovered. Well worth making again!

Mushroom Cube Steaks

Reviewed: May 16, 2012
Made this last night and it was very good. Only change I made was to increase the amount of onion and add 3 cloves of garlic. The cube steaks were very tender and flavorful. Thanks!

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
I made this last night and it was delicious! I halved the recipe, except for the garlic (you garlic lovers will understand, LOL). The only addition I made was some Italian sausage I had cooked earlier in the day. For those of you cooking this the first time and who might have some concerns about it being runny, keep in mind that the simmer stage will take care of that. In fact you need to keep a close eye on it as it can quickly go from runny to too dry. Also remember that the parmesan cheese added at the end will thicken the sauce up some. As I was eating it, I thought to myself that some broccoli florets would be a nice addition and in reading other reviews I see that some other people have done just that. This is worth fixing again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

White Bean 'n' Ham Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
This was excellent!! I had a leftover ham on the bone so I cooked it in a pressure cooker until it was falling off the bone. Meanwhile I sauteed the veggies adding 2 ribs of celery and some garlic. Then I removed the bones and defatted the broth. Added the veggies to the ham broth and the beans and let it all simmer for a bit. I left out the salt as the ham made it plenty salty for my taste. When I make this again I will probably add one more can of beans. Served it with cornbread sticks and had a delicious, easy to prepare dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Greek Lamb and Orzo

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
Made this last night and it was very good. Was out of celery so added some onion. Had to add some water to it. Tasted like lamb shanks with orzo from a Greek restaurant. Worth fixing again.

Basil Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This recipe is spectacular!! I halved the recipe for 2 servings. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs for a bit more flavor and moisture. I used half and half to save a bit on calories on fat and never missed the heavy cream. Even though I halved the recipe, I used heaping measurements of the butter, basil and parm cheese. I used bow tie pasta as that is a particular favorite of mine. Any restaurant would be proud to have this on their menu and you will be proud to serve this to your family or guests. This recipe is easy enough to make for company without even trying it out first. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!

Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
This was very good. I tend to like recipes with a lot of sauce. Since I live alone I often half the meat part of the recipe and leave the rest as is. I used 2 chicken thighs and the full amount of the marinade. I just happened to have some frozen pearl onions so added a few of them and they were a nice touch. I served it with Rice Pilaf to which I added a few frozen peas. The whole meal was wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!

Baked Spaghetti I

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
I made this last night and it was very good. Because I tend to like lots of sauce on dishes I was tempted to reduce the amount of pasta, but I went ahead and used what was called for and it was fine. I dont like green peppers so I used a red pepper. And I used fresh mushrooms. The shredded cheese I had was called Pizza Blend and was half cheddar and half mozzarella. I had to cook it longer than the recipe said for it to brown. It was a nice change from the more standard baked spaghetti. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Chicken Paprikash

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2011
This was really wonderful. I did make a few minor changes which did not affect the spirit of the recipe. I had a couple of pork chops which I used instead of chicken. I saw that a number of other reviewers had substituted some sort of stock for water. I had boiled some ribs for Labor Day and had some leftover stock from that. And I was not about to do all the work to make the dumplings, so I used wide noodles. My guests and I were delighted with this recipe and I will be making it again.

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Made this last night. It was very good. I was using Corningware so browned the chops in the dish stove top, set the chops aside, assembled the dish, put chops back on top and baked. Added some sauteed onions I had in frige and a little garlic. Will make again and thinking of trying Brandy instead of Sherry next time. I made a smaller serving with two chops. Served it with white and wild rice.

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I made this recipe and will probably not ever go back to the Italian restaurant near me. It was WUNderful!! I made the following adjustments. 1 package of Italian Sausage instead of ground beef. I thin sliced it lengthways. 2 28 oz. cans of spaghetti sauce. You can often find Hunt's or Del Monte for $1 a can which is a lot less than jar sauce. Used 2 cups Italian Blend Cheese mixed in and 2 cups Mozzarella on the top. This was just an absolutely super dish!! One note: With the extra sauce you will need a bigger pan than 9" x 13" I can't imagine anyone not liking this recipe.
