Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Excellent soup! I've made it twice in the past two weeks and both times have been awesome. I use olive oil in place of butter (healthier) and vegetable stock in place of chicken (vegetarian boyfriend). I also use more seasonings, adding fresh minced garlic to the onion about 2 minutes before adding the potatoes, water, and bullion. I use a little cayenne, chili powder, and oregano as well. We like spice! Less cheese and because we don't have a blender or a food processor, I just used the ladel to kind of mash the vegetables in the pot. As other reviewers have noted, it's not necessary to cook the broccoli separately, just add in towards the end, fresh tastes the best! I did put a dollop of sour cream in my bowl upon serving, makes it a little bit creamier but completely not necessary if you're looking to keep the calories down!! Delicious, this will be part of our recipe rotation going forward!!!

Broccoli Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I'm rating this lowly because I found it to be a mushy mess without any flavor. There was crunch here and there with the water chestnuts and almonds but overall it felt very uninspired. It's definitely a simple recipe and I can see where picky kids would like it. I would maybe make it again on a night I don't feel like cooking but have to eat something.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This is a great start for creating minestrone soup. In typical fashion, I made changes to suit our tastes. I used all vegetable broth instead of water and chicken broth (vegetarian). I used more beans, cannellini and red kidney, the entire can of both, less green beans, more spinach, no zucchini since we forgot to buy, added diced red potatoes, added about 2 extra cups of broth and 1 cup of tomato sauce. It STILL came out quite chunky and delicious. It makes a lot of soup but it only tastes better the next day. Thanks Jamie for a great recipe!

Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This is a great recipe! My boyfriend lamented for days when the leftovers were finished. The only changes I made were to add fresh broccoli in the middle and more seasoning to the cheese sauce. I blanched the broccoli and set aside while I prepared the rest of the meal, I poured half the macaroni in the baking dish, sprinkled a layer of shredded cheddar, then broccoli, another sprinkle of cheddar, the rest of the macaroni, then poured the cheese sauce slowly over the the whole thing. The sauce is thin but it baked up to mix through out. To the cheese sauce I added some cayenne and chili powder, a little salt and pepper and some mustard powder.

Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
This recipe was a good base idea but I felt it lacked flavor by itself. I sauteed the onions first with some garlic. I also added a little mustard and curry powder to the milk/egg mixture before I poured it over. It gave it a deeper flavor without being over powering.
