Apple Cider Sauce and Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
Easy to make for weeknight cooking. I followed the recipe for everything except that I also sauteed a thinly sliced apple plus 1/2 a sliced onion. Even my little kids ate up the whole thing!

Crab Canapes

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
When I first made this recipe, I followed it to the letter. I learned that the filling was quite good but it was overwhelmed by the heavy biscuit taste. I switched it to puff pastry, cut into small squares and placed into a mini-muffin baking pan. Came out MUCH better and was a hit at our barbecue. Will make again!

Spinach Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Excellent soup and easy to make. I've served this to my small kids and they love it. I've used fresh spinach and frozen (both work). I've added a little oregano and nutmeg, giving it a little zing. All in all, makes a great lunch.

Oven Fried Chicken III

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Great weeknight meal. Very tasty. I didn't change the ingredients but I did change the temperature/time after the first time I cooked it. Cook at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes. This avoids the sogginess I experienced the first time.

Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Gal-Bi)

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Very easy to make and absolutely delicious. The hardest part is looking for that specific cut of meat, usually in Korean or Japanese supermarkets.

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
Tasty and easy for weeknight cooking. Just add it to some white rice and you've got a meal right there. I followed the recipe this time but in the future, I might switch up the vegetables. My 4-year-old daughter and husband both enjoyed it so it's a keeper!

Savory Spinach Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Tasty and simple to make. I used low-fat cottage cheese and taste and consistency was not compromised. I added mushrooms which complemented the spinach well. I might experiment with different seasonings but by itself, it worked quite nicely.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
This was simply delicious. The key is to use fresh vegetables. I couldn't believe how easy this was to make. I used refrigerated Pillsbury pie crusts and they worked fine. I used thyme instead of celery seed and added some diced potatoes. Thanks!

Filet Mignon with Mushroom-Cabernet Gravy

Reviewed: May 13, 2011
The sauce for this recipe is fantastic. For the filet mignon, I actually cut it up into bite size pieces so that the sauce can cover more meat. Easier for my kids to eat as well. Served this with a side of mashed potatoes and steamed carrots and it was a hit.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
I give it three stars because my kids were willing to eat it. However, my husband and I both agree that it was pretty bland and I followed the recipe exactly.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
So simple and yet it became a very nice side dish for our barbecue. It was finished before any other dish. We took one stalk, split it in half and wrapped both halves in half a strip of bacon. Perfect!

Campbell's Kitchen Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
The appearance of the dish is quite appealing on the table but the taste was pretty mediocre. Needs to be kicked up a bit with some seasonings. Tasted too much like beef broth.

Pasta, Broccoli and Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
Definitely tasty and a great way to incorporate veg, meat and starch all in one dish. I took advice from other reviewers and doubled the amount of pesto required. I also stir-fried raw chicken together with the pesto and vegetables. A good start to a great recipe.

Sweet And Sour Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
This recipe was a big success for my husband and extremely picky son. The sauce flavor was tangy but sweet and blended well with the chicken meatballs, as well as the rice. This time, I stuck to the recipe directions but I may try others' suggestions next time, using different cuts of meat and maybe even try seasoning the meatballs before cooking them in the sauce.
