Company Chicken Pasta Salad with Grapes

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2004
Wow! What a great recipe! This is so easy to make. It's very light tasting and has a sweet and ethnic flavor as well. The combination of the curry and the grapes are a wonderful mix.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
These were really creamy and good. I used organic natural peanut butter and assume that makes them a bit better than the usual sugared PB. Didn't yield 36 cookies though. More like 24. I will definitely make these again.

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
Oh my! This was such a wonderful combination of flavors. We absolutely loved this. My husband said "this is so good" about 10 times while eating it and he rarely comments on food. I would suggest adding one extra mango. We did and it really even could have worked with 3. My only slight complaint was that the prep time (chopping) is long and that the sweet potatoes take much longer than stated to cook until soft. The recipe says it takes 15 minutes to soften the sweet potatoes but it took us over 30 minutes. Still, it was well worth the wait. We will make this again and again!

Hash Brown Ham Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I made this for Easter brunch and everyone enjoyed it. It seemed much more like a casserole than a quiche though. My pie dish was a bit larger so I added an extra egg and an extra cup of hash browns. I also omitted the mushrooms and the green pepper because I didn't think the family would like them. But, I added 2 green onions and doubled the ham to compensate. I also topped it with some fried onions during the last 5 minutes of cook time. It turned out great. I will definitely make this again.

Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
The key to this recipe is what BBQ sauce you use. CooksIllustrated.com recently did a taste test of store bought BBQ sauces and we went with their recommendation. Their two top picks were Texas Best Barbecue Sauce, Original Rib Style and BullsEye Original BBQ Sauce. We couldn't find Texas Best so we used Bulls Eye. It kind of had a smokey taste and was a very thick sauce. The meat turned out tender and perfect. After cooking we added more sauce because it slightly lacked in flavor. But in the end we loved these and probably ate far too much for one sitting! We will make this again for sure.

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
These are so delicious. One batch made about 50 cookies for me. I used Andes mints on top. It's a very easy recipe to make. I will definitely make these again.

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
Wow. I'm not normally a fan of meatloaf but this was very good. I also loved that it was so easy to make. I made some slight alterations. After reading other reviews about how sweet the sauce was I decided to add about 2 pinches of garlic salt to it to offset the sweetness. I think that really helped. I also added one clove of minced garlic to the meat mix. Other than that I followed the recipe and it was wonderful. I will definitely make this again!

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
This is a very easy and tasty recipe. I have made this 3 different times. It also freezes well so we've had it as left-overs. It's great for warming you on a cold day. The first time I made it, it was too salty. Now I omit salt when I make it. Really best if served over rice!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
I made this for a friend of mine after she had her baby and she loved it. She even froze it and ate it a week later and still loved it. It didn't all quite fit in one casserole dish so I made a smaller casserole of it with the remaining and kept it for myself. Very good stuff! I think this would be great for kids too.

Greek Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
Yum! Healthy, tasty, fresh. I love this recipe. It takes a bit of chopping but it's totally worth it. This is a great dish to bring to a summer potluck.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
These turned out amazing. I didn't expect such good results. I was skeptical about the concept of the slow cooker. I thought it would dry out the potatoes. It did not. It allowed for the flavors to meld. I chose not to add the butter in the end because it didn't need it. I also only used 2 bouillon cubes because I didn't want it to be over-salty. These turned out perfect and needed no seasoning in the end. Not even salt. I will definitely make these again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
This was excellent soup. I made it for a friend of mine who just had a baby and she devoured it. It was a lot of chopping because I doubled the recipe...but it was well worth it. I think this could be very good with a can of corn added to it. It tastes more like a chowder than a soup.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
This was simple and very good. I made it for house guests. We had 5 adults and we ate it all up even though the recipe says it serves 9. We did have seconds though. I substituted Salsa Verde for the tomatillos, used 1 & 1/2 lbs chicken meat, and doubled the white beans because otherwise it would have seemed a bit soupy and less chunky. This had a nice spicy bite to it but was not too much. I didn't need to add any salt at all because it was just perfect. I am now going to add this recipe to my regular rotation.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
This is a very simple yet flavorful recipe. I went a little light on the sauce because someone in their review said they overdid it and it ruined it for them. But, I think I should have just lathered it on because the sauce was good. This is a recipe that will impress guests too!

Lattice Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
This was very easy to make so for that I give it 4 stars. But, if I were to make it again I would use fresh veggies. The frozen ones are quick when you are short on time but just don't have the same flavor. This also could use a little more spice of some sort. But overall, I would say this is a good, quick recipe and probably great for potlucks.

Ham and Fresh Basil Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
I made these for a baby shower and people really liked them. The basil flavor was a bit strong for some though. Not for me. I'd make these again.

Artichoke Nibbles

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
I made these for a potluck gathering as an appetizer and people seemed to like them. They are kind of like square mini artichoke quiches. It seemed like they needed a crunchy topping of some sort though so I crumbled more of the saltines with butter on top and baked for an extra 10 minutes. I should have used ritz crackers though because the saltines never browned and looked kind of odd. Anyway, with a few modifications I would probably make these again. I think they need slightly more artichokes and I might use a different cheese like mozzarella or maybe even pepper jack since you didn't taste much of the hot sauce.

Campfire Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
This was an easy recipe. We cooked this ahead of time and then reheated on our camp stove as suggested. It was a little bland. I think it could use some spices or something. I even doubled up on the garlic but it still was bland. Also, if I were to do it again I'd toast the almonds first. But, I probably would make this again if I went camping with some slight alterations because it was very easy.
