Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
This is GREAT! Happy to be able to use my white pepper that I bought at Penzey's. I thought that it might be too garlicky with that much garlic powder, but NO! I used a 16oz bag of frozen florets which I rinsed in hot water & then cut the stalks off as I don't really like them. I shook the flour with some of the half & half that I was using up (in a jar) but I don't advise that.......I had lumps that I had to deal with! So do whisk it. Doesn't need extra salt IMO. Thanks Pam!

Basil Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
I did make some changes.....I hate pimiento, so I subbed sun-dried tomatoes. (2 or 3 oz worth- jarred in oil, but drained) I love em. I first made it breading the chicken, but since then I just brown it in the butter. (IMO, no use in breading) I mix everything else in a bowl & pour over. When a recipe calls for a small amount of chicken broth, I just use granules with water. I also usually just use some dried basil. (1 T) That is always on hand. And since Costco has those half gallons of half & half now, I use that instead of whipping cream. :)

Ranch Style Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2012
Love these. Without a doubt, cut back oil to 1/2 cup. I also use the small packet of dry ranch, which is .4 oz. That way they are not TOO salty. I also omit the lemon pepper & use 1 t. dill. As someone else noted, definitely use the Premium oyster crackers.....the store brands are so inferior! And yes, it is a 9oz package. SO easy & you will LOVE them!

Restaurant-Quality Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. I have made it for years. It is GREAT. I microwave the potatoes, use 1 c. onion, & use a little less potato flakes. I also use real bacon bits in a jar (easier) & omit the green onions as a garnish. This recipe is easier than it may seem.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
Wow- my cream of tartar must have been old, because mine came out rather flat. But no one minded as the fam scarfed em down! I found this in a hurried search for something to go with my beef stew & this fit the bill. Seemed like a lot of butter, but my FLAT biscuits were tasty & kind of crunchy around the edges. YUM. Can't wait to try them with fresh cream of tartar. Thanks!

Southwestern Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
This is so much better than it seems it would be! I used bacon bits, but next time I might use bacon strips & remove before serving. I also added a can of rinsed pinto beans- gave more substance to the soup. (although it's good without- just thin.) Flavor is really great. You can add a dollop of sour cream to your bowl & mix it in, or not. Great both ways! And SO easy! Thanks for sharing.

Jeff's Chili Con Queso

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Pretty good stuff! Used the whole can of chili- was out of salsa, so pulsed a can of Rotel & measured out a cup. I also added some water as it was thicker than I like queso to be.

Chicken Jerusalem I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Pretty good- not really anything special. Made it as called for- would use less wine next time. (sauce too thin & wine a bit over-powering) But it's good since it's so easy! (& low carb)

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
This was good, but didn't blow me away. I always use frozen corn instead of canned- the soup was a little watery IMO. Very healthy, though. Might want to add refried beans like others if you like it thicker & maybe some more spice.

Nanny's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Really good & tomatoey! Easy. I love using crushed tomatoes. I used just a little less red wine vinegar because that's all I had left & I also used 2 T. sugar. Tomatoes in all forms are very healthy!

Pat's Cream of Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
Pretty good stuff & easy. I always use bacon bits- so I just saute'd the onion in a little butter, then added the flour. Then chicken broth & bacon, etc. Definitely mash the potatoes quite well in the pan,(when done) & stir between mashings to bring up the potatoes from the bottom. Cook at least 30 minutes- maybe 35-40!

White Chocolate Gorp

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
YUM!!! After reading reviews & other recipes, I used Crispix, Cheerios, holiday pretzels,& a can of cashew/macadamia nut mix. Melted 2 T. margarine in a lg skillet & then added 2 bags (12 oz ea) of white chocolate chips & melted over low heat. Stirred into mix & lastly added a bag of coated mini Hershey kisses. Be sure to use a HUGE bowl & lay out plenty of wax paper. (I used the hint to tape it down.) This is so easy & good. Makes a ton & a great idea for holiday food gifts.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
Very good!!! I used ground chicken- & just browned it along with the oil,garlic, onion, & water chestnuts. Left out the green onions since I didn't have any. Combined all the sauce ingredients (including sesame oil) in a small bowl & then added to the chicken mixture. Heat through & you're done! Used iceberg leaves- dry & chill in the freezer for a few minutes to make 'em crisp! I always get honey chicken at Pei Wei, but now I can make these myself at home & it's easy! Now I see why so many order them at PW/PF Chang's. (P.S.- Used regular minced ginger in a jar)

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2007
Yummy! I used a 9x9 insulated baking pan & I think it worked perfect. I did combine the salt, sugar, & cinnamon in a small bowl before adding to the mashed mixture of eggs, vanilla, cream, melted butter, & sweet potatoes. Make sure to not melt the butter for the topping- the texture won't be right. (I nuked it a little too long to soften) Used 5 pretty big sweet potatoes & nuked 'em. (peeling afterwards) Thanks so much for the fantastic recipe. It's a keeper.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
Tasty stuff! Chose for low carb. I melted the butter & garlic in a small skillet over low heat. It was easy to dip the chicken in this way. I also like to use a flat-type bowl or container to put the crumbs in. I always bake my chicken at least 40 minutes, but the time is probably right on if the breasts are rather thin. Thanks for the recipe!

Broccoli With Lemon Almond Butter

My husband & I liked it, but my little girl was so-so on it. (& she does like broccoli) I guess she's just used to cheese. Very healthy!

Quick Zesty Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
Well, I'm getting old. Thought I had pecans, but didn't. Used almonds instead. Forgot the recipe called for BLACKENED Old Bay- didn't have any, so used regular Old Bay. Turned out great anyway!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
I really liked this, but I messed up & used 2 large fillets that were almost 12 ounces each! I think if I had used the recommended amounts of marinade it would have been too much. I wrapped each fillet in foil & baked 40 minutes. Turned out perfect. Yummy & healthy!
