Lemon Ginger Sauce with Dill

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
My husband LOVED this sauce! I did tweak it a bit because it tasted bland. I tripled the amount of lemon juice and doubled the salt. I also added a few dashes of tobasco. Do NOT leave out the fresh ginger. It makes the recipe! I served blackened salmon on wilted spinach and poured this on top. It was so good! It tastes like Greek Tsatsiki. I will definitely make it again.

Wilted Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I left out the pine nuts to cut down on fat. Still was great. WAY too much dressing for the 6 oz of spinach I used. I steamed my spinach in my tabletop steamer which made it very easy. I will definitely make again but either half the dressing or double the spinach.

Roast Chicken with Cracked Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
I love to roast chicken and have tried many different recipes and this ranks at the top! It was SO GOOD! The sauce was outstanding! I served it with smashed potatoes. My husband couldn't stop! I cooked it in a roasting pan with a tight fitting lid. I think this is much better than foil as it really seals in the moisture. I had PLENTY of drippings left for the gravey. It WAS very salty so next time I will rub the chicken with a very small amount of salt and I think that will fix it. Also, instead of heavy cream I used fat-free milk. I heated one cup in the microwave until it was steaming (watch it closely). I then immediately whisked in about five tbsp flour one at a time and then added this to the reduced drippings. I got a very smooth gravy which was not too rich. You're not going to get the thickness this way that you would with heavy cream but it wasn't watery and tasted great and certainly was much more healthy. I will absolutely make this again. GREAT RECIPE!

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
I followed the cooking time in fact didn't cook them as long and they still came out tough. I think I'll try again though because all other things considered I like the recipe and it sure is easy.

Yummy Lemon Salmon Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
My husband has never wanted "salmon loaf" due to the fact that his mother served it at least twice a week when he was growing up so he wasn't real thrilled when I told him I was making salmon cakes. Well he loved them. I served them with cocktail sauce because I had some in my fridge but will make the suggested sauce next time. One thing is that I did only need one egg. It would've been too runny with two. Also I added 1/2 tsp of Old Bay which I think helped a lot. I'm having a dinner party tomorrow night and will be making these in the mini version for appetizers. It's great because I can make them up ahead!

Slow Cooker Bananas Foster

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
The rum flavor really overwhelmed the dish. No one liked it. I don't know if I will make it again but if I do I will definitely use less rum.

Campbell's Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
A super easy take on a classic. I cut each breast in half and pounded it slightly for more tender pieces. If you do this the browning takes less time. I also added a few tbsp of olive oil when I browned and found there really wasn't anything to drain. I do trim the breasts of any fat first so that helps. I placed the cooked breasts and sauce in a covered glass dish so all I had to do was put the cheese on top, cover it and let it sit for five minutes and the cheese melted very nicely. I will definitely make this again.

Campbell's® Slow Cooker Savory Pot Roast

I didn't have any potatoes so I threw in two cans of green beans. There were NO leftovers at ALL! Great recipe and very easy.

Rosemary Pasta in Roasted Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This a great alternative to a red sauce. As suggested I used it as a side for chicken marsala and it complimented it very well. Chicken Marsala is a stronger tasting dish and this being a bit more mild worked very well. Next I think I will increase the sauce by about a quarter but other than that wouldn't change a thing.

Apple Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
OMG so good!!! I never thought I'd hear my son say he liked ANYTHING but garlic mashed potatoes but he liked these! I made one change to make it skinnier. I boiled the potatoes and apples in chicken broth and then used the reserved broth to thicken the potatoes (you don't need much so add it very gradually). That way, you can leave the butter out altogether, If you make your own broth it's even better. I served these with Duck Burgundy and it made for a great pair!

Basic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Great recipe! I tripled it and it made a HUGE amount! Freezes well for future use. I added several cloves of mashed roasted garlic at the end. Also added a bar of cream cheese (remember I tripled it) along with salt and pepper. Everyone loved it!

Pumpkin Mousse

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
This is a pretty complicated recipe for what I thought was an average/ok end dish. I used it as a trifle and layered it with whipped topping and crushed gingersnaps. It was well received but a bit heavy; maybe not the best way to use it. Not sure how I'd modify it just think maybe there's an easier way to get there. Still it was delicious and turned out exactly as the recipe described.

Mock Mincemeat Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Loved it! I did need to add a about 1/2 cup more apple cider during the stovetop time or it would've dried out. I didn't have any rum left it out completely. Cooked it as a two crust pie. I have one son who is a big mincemeat (minus the meat) pie fan and so I always make one for him at holiday gatherings. He inhaled it and took the rest home with him! Will definitely make again! Thanks!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
I just made this again with fantastic results! YUM! I brined the breast overnight. I put a couple of pats of butter, a splash of white wine, some chopped celery and five cloves of garlic in the pot and a few inside the turkey breast. Before rubbing it with the onion soup mix, I rubbed it with olive oil, then rubbed it all over and under the skin. Cooked on high for 1 hour and then low for five hours. Absolutely perfect. Today, I'm going to layer the leftover turkey on top of stuffing in the slow cooker with gravy poured over the top and heat through. I followed all the instructions but even so it came out just a bit dry. I think next time I will add some broth to the bottom of the crock and rub the turkey breast with olive oil. I will definitely use this recipe again. Couldn't be easier and the leftovers were great. I made gravy with some of the juices from the bottom, very good. I put the bones back in the crock and added some more celery, garlic and onion, cooked til the next morning and had wonderful turkey broth.

Simple Chicken Brine

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Really good and really easy! The chicken was sooooo tender. However, if you plan to cook your chicken in a slow cooker, you're going to need to shorten your cooking time if you brine. Otherwise, the chicken will just fall apart. I was worried that the soy sauce would overpower it but not at all. Everyone loved it and said it was their favorite so far. I cook a chicken about once a week and am always trying different recipes. This is definitely a keeper!

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
Absolutely DELICIOUS! I wanted it be richer so I used 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1 cup of milk. I also used whole milk in the sauce. Since I was making it for guests, no worries about calories but next time I will use only skim milk. The entire dish disappeared real quick! A keeper!
