French Herb Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
Excellence! ~sheer delish! We made this in our bread machine & before that honking lot of dough got big enough to pour out onto our counter we took it out & divided it, rolled the dough on a floured surface & rolled it up, tucking in the ends. Covered wit plastic wrap on a large cookie sheet, let rise & then, baked two HUGE loaves & brought to a family Italian dinner & it was inhaled! Only a wee tad of butter needed, maybe even none! Soft, chewy, and so aromatic & beautiful. KEEP THIS IN THE RECIPE BOX!!!

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
I bought a pumpin at the farmer's market for making pie & seeds, but found this recipe on a "quick meal" search & thought, "What the hey? Sounds healthy & the ratings are great." SO>>> I followed other reviewers & added about 1/4 Cup of food processed onions to the bubbling butter, then did the recipe as followed. Added about 1 cup of shredded chicken to it & used Coconut milk instead of the 1/2 & 1/2, AND I used Indian Curry which made it near impossible for my children to feed their bodies so wonderfully as my hubby & me! Made wheat rolls & topped the soup with the seeds & we were so satisfied, in & out! This is a great, warm up your insides & get your nose running soup! So good for you too! Thank you for this addition to my fave site! Now this recipe card sits in front row in my soup slot in the recipe box!!!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
I made a Chick. Tort. Soup another time and it went poorly, I was apprehensive about this but time was short & the day was HECTIC and hubby WANTED soup! SO, I started this recipe at noon & it was done (at high) at 4, I just shredded the chicken breasts (I used three) up right before serving, topping with restaurant style corn chips, crushed, and mexican-style cheese. My husband smelled it, said (as always), "this better be good!" and then wolfed down two heaping bowls full! He told me that night that this was EXCELLENT soup, like he would expect from a restaurant!! Super meal, low-fat and SO good! Thank you! (Makes loads of soup, too! Get ready to freeze some & use some for left-overs for lunch, tomorrow!) My 2 yr.old loved it, 4 yr. old didn't, 7 yr.old ate all & no complaints, and 11 year old LOVED it! I did, too. I'm keeping this one!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
This was perfect for a "mom's too busy to cook/bake" dinner! Our not-too-experienced 11 yr. old daughter made this with flare!! She also threw an additional 1/2 cup of french fried onions on top, because she loves them! It was REALLY good! (we also added about 1/2 cup sliced, sauteed mushrooms. We omitted the soup + milk +spices in the pot +warm them up step... Why dirty an additional pot? She just stirred it into the drained noodles! Came out great & only 2 dishes to clean afterward. Smart girl, huh?)

No Beans About It - Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
I'm kicking Hormel chili out the door! Home-made, healthy (no bugs or odds & ends to worry about down at the chili plant! ew!!) and my family really LOVED Frito-chili night. SO FAST & EASY TO MAKE!! Our daughter will be making us this for chili dogs, Frito-chili, and anything else we can think to top it with, spaghetti? We served ours in big bowls with Frito chips on bottom, then some shredded cheddar cheese, the chili, then some avacodos and onions, we were out of tomatoes so we omitted the thought for this time, the kids liked more cheese & some sour cream on top. Black beans will be there next time --on the side. VERY GOOD! Put a bowl of condiments in the center for everyone to personalize theirs!

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
used 1/2 bag of coleslaw instead of bok choy! (last time we used bok choy I really, really cleaned it, yet still found a fly within it's many crevaces! Ew, do you blame me?) Added: sliced one onion about 1 tsp minced fresh ginger My entire clan, including ages 2, 4, 7 & 12 ate it up and LOVED it! My husbandand I really enjoyed it! (I was skeptical, ground beef in a Chinese recipe?) I loved that it was incredibly cheap and fast to make. Good on thin, Chinese noodles or Rice! Don't let rice-a-roni know about this! They'll patent it! NOTE: Used ground Turkey, GREAT!

Stir-Fry Pork with Ginger

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2007
If I could give this 20 stars I would! I've been enlisted to start an "all Chinese" menu for 2 weeks or more, a la my husband and there have been 6 nights so far, when my husband dug into this with added stir fried veggies on Basmati rice, my husband said, "I think this is the best you've EVER made, yet!" and I agreed, along with all of our kids --except the 3 month old ;}! Very, very good, nice & salty & with the WW points system, this was 8 with the cup of rice, lower it with brown rice! Mmmm! I ended up adding more soy & a bit more Tahini (sesame oil) & then 1/3 cup water with a heaping tsp of corn starch to make more 'gravy,' which was sensational, by the way. No need to pass the salt.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I feel silly adding any comments to this because of the amount of reviews that RAVE. BUT, my daughter (12) couldn't quit shovelling this down! Our entire family absolutely loved this. Note: I used a 3 1/2 pound roast & had to remove about a pound for it to fit in our crock pot, prior to crocking it all day... also, if you're going to leave the house, don't leave it on HIGH because there's so much going on in there & it just splashed all over through the edges of the lid on mine. DELICIOUS and unbelievably simple! Great with mashed potatoes, yummy gravy!

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2007
I was out of ricotta so I used large curd cottage cheese & when they were nearly done baking they burst & spilled out on the pan (but that crispy, cheesey stuff was tastey!). Brushed them with garlic butter & coarse salt prior to baking & we dipped ours in jarred spaghetti sauce thickened with 2 TBs of tomato paste, WOW! fast dinner, fattening & tastey.

Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
This was VERY good for a fast supper. My pantry was bare, I didn't have any frozen stir-fry veggies but I had carrots, celery, mushrooms and onions. It turned out VERY tasty & my whole family of six, plus a baby, polished off an 8 serving meal. I baked my tofu in soy, garlic, ginger and a bit of honey, instead of frying it because I needed to fry up some ground chicken @ the same time (I only had one box of tofu!). I never had tofu taste great! Frying it would have gotten the same results. Satifying and FAST!

Vanilla Wafer Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
We used 3/4 Cup sugar, also tried dropping the cookies but they were puffy, unlike "Nilla Wafer" cookies so we rolled about a level teaspoon-full in the palm & then softly flattened. They turned out Excellent! If you like crispy edges, slightly chewey centers, and the taste of sweet, crispy butter --these are a dieter's nightmare on the hips but fantasy on the lips. My husband's a cookie-hater (chocolate-chip is the only one he'll even bother with) and he took a cereal bowl FULL of these from the cooling racks & a mug of milk & went off dunking & munching. ***!!!BEWARE!!!***

Excellent! Served it on boring hamburger buns & still saw my SIL eat 2!!! (She's not a big eater, either! a waif of a girly) Defatted mine before adding Famous Dave's Rich & Sassy sauce, served up for Labor Day get-together. Wonderful with cole-slaw on top!!! yummy. Even had some today for lunch, extra yummy on GOOD rolls!!!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
oh, help me! I'm dead This recipe creates a muffin worth 2 bucks each! If not $4! --Otis Spunkimeyer, watch out! These are a WW's nightmare (I think these are well over 12 points each, eek!) but what a treat! Family loves these, the topping makes a sensation on top of apple pies, too!

Big Batch Kris Kringle Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
My husband doesn't even like cookies (can anyone imagine that???) and he gobbled these things down, saying, "These are the best cookies EVER" --next batch was requested without nuts, add extra cherries, he inhaled them. The kids had to fight to get at the cookie plate. Great gift cookies, very pretty, too.

Cookie Dough for Ice Cream (Eggless)

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Oh, man. This is too addictive. I used Smart Blend instead of butter, Almond milk instead of water and skipped the white sugar, since I added semi-sweet choco-chips... I couldn't stop our daughter from racing me to it! There's only the smallest bit left in the fridge & it's mine!!!
