Rocky Mountain Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2005
I was looking for something to do with sirloin tips when I found this recipe. I made the recipe as written, reducing by half for our small family. I had some leftover peas that I added at the last minute. Sounded kind of odd to add peas, but it really was a nice addition. Reminded me of Dinty Moore stew - but fresh! Somehow I didn't have as much gravy as I thought it should. Maybe next time I will add a bit more water... This one was a hit, even with my husband who declared he does not like stew! Will definitely make this one again.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2013
I tried this awhile back with recipe exactly as written. We liked it and just returned to try again. This time I did not have tomato sauce so I substituted with ketchup. Couldn't find my skewers so I tossed the shrimp onto the George Foreman grill and cooked for a couple minutes. Yum! I like tomato ketchup better than the sauce - and now I don't have to worry about what to do with the leftover canned tomato sauce. Excellent recipe either way, so easy and very tasty. I think the fresh basil is a requirement - don't try to skip it. The shrimp made a nice addition to the top of a spinach salad tonite. We will use this again and again!

Orzo and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2004
We loved this one! I've finally found a use for that tri-color orzo sitting in my pantry. I followed other reviewers advice and used 1/2 chix broth & 1/2 bouillon, added sauteed onions & garlic. A nice change from ordinary rice.

Creamy Dill Dressing

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
I was looking for a dill dressing to go with a green salad, used leftovers for veggie dip (perfect w/ celery & carrots) and quite by accident found it makes wonderful sauce for salmon. Loved this recipe! Only change I made was to substitute Splenda for the sugar to make it even more low carb. I dumped everything into my Tupperware shaker bottle and mixed it up, one container and no stirring required. What a tasty find. Will use this one again and again.

Spicy Mexican Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Took this one to a potluck and it went over big. Used only 1/2 bag corn chips and that seemed like more than enough. This one gets soggy fast, so don't prepare in advance. I just prepped the ingredients and then tossed when I arrived, adding the chips at the very last. A very hearty salad. Add some taco meat and it becomes a worthy main dish.

Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
After reading the reviews of others, I knew I could take these to a party without "testing" at home first. I used a 2# bag of frozen turkey meatballs and baked according to directions. Then doubled the sauce recipe and put everything into the crock pot on LO. Doubling the recipe means you use 1 bottle of chili sauce and 1 can of cranberry. Wow - so easy and good.

Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Followed directions except did not bother to boil the water and cooked on LO for 11+ hours (because that's how long I was at work!!). Excellent results! Added a dash of Tabasco and some addtl salt (another 1/2 t atleast) at the end. Used 1% milk, although I think whole milk would have been better for richer results. Thanks for a super easy and flavorful recipe.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
As other reviewers have suggested, I used boneless/skinless chicken breasts and let them cook w/ the soup. Chopped and returned to the soup shortly before serving - melt-in-your-mouth tender. Used homemade chix broth in place of the canned. Served with a dollop of sour cream and some shredded Mexi-cheese, w/ crushed tortilla chips on top (no need to make your own) Easy and FABULOUS! Saving the leftovers in the freezer to enjoy another day.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
Great recipe with a ton of flexibility. I first experienced these at a party where someone made them with mint-filled Oreos - decadent! I substituted choc & white choc almond bark for the baking chocolate. Use a food processor for easy prep - I dumped whole cookies and chunks of cream cheese and it mixed up perfectly. Roll the balls and refrigerate for atleast 1 hour, then dip into melted bar using toothpicks. Easy and elegant. Everyone thought they were store-bought!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
Cut this recipe in 1/2 and used 8x8" pan, worked great! Very easy and tasty but oh so rich. Will enjoy this recipe again and again.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I was looking for a rice side dish to go w/ an enchilada casserole. This recipe was just right and sooo easy! I followed recipe just as directed and it came out perfectly. I think the secret is to use a good chunky salsa. The one I used was med spice w/ garlic. No additional salt needed. This recipe is a keeper for my family.

Easy Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
I made this one for a birthday and it got rave reviews. I used a fork to poke lots of holes in the cake before covering w/ glaze. Followed another reviewers recommendation and added a dab of butter to the glaze, along with some freshly grated lemon rind. Fresh squeezed lemon juice made it all the more tasty. I think this one is even better the next day, moist and more lemony. Next time, I will make it the day before serving. Good & easy!

Quick Chicken with Asparagus and Provolone

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
I added a bit of parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs - yum! Seems like 1/2 can of chix broth would be plenty for next time. Very easy and elegant - will be a great company dish.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
Perfect pie and couldn't be easier to make! I used a frozen pie crust and it came out beautifully. This is the first rhubarb pie recipe I have tried that was worthy of the rhurbarb. Pie was a bit soupy served warm, but the flavor was excellent. Refrigerated and served cold the next day - just right.

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Yum! This was delicious and so easy! Made a slight substitution based on what I had - 1/2 C half-&-half, 1/4 C chicken broth, 1/4 C white wine. 1/2 lb fettuccini was plenty for this recipe. Reminded me of a favorite dish from Shell's seafood restaurant.

Easy Sausage Strata

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Just the recipe base I was looking for. Perfect for some stale wheat sandwich bread I found in the freezer. Cut bread into cubes while frozen makes it very easy. I used link sausage (removed from casings) because that's what I had on hand. This dish was a big hit at work, baked in a foil 11x7 pan and no clean-up. I can see all kinds of possibilities for variations in the future, but you really can't go wrong with the basic recipe either.

Layered Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
I followed the recipe except I used a bag of salad mix (iceberg & carrots mostly) in place of the lettuce. Used only 1/2 small onion (green onions would be good too). Don't leave the water chestnuts out - they make that extra "crunch" you need. Took this one to a ladies gathering and got rave reviews and requests for the recipe - it was soooo easy. This goes into my permanent file. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet Potato Souffle III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Excellent recipe, just cut the sugar in half. Way too sweet otherwise. Hard to call it a side dish when it tastes like desert. Don't scrimp on the topping. Yum!

Drip Beef Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
Browned in a fry-pan and then dropped in the crockpot as several others have suggested. I used a 3# roast and cooked on Low for 10 hours. I'm not a big fan of crockpot beef - seems like it's always dried out and stringy. This was definitely an exception. Excellent flavor and still very moist. I loved the spices in the coffee filter, so easy! Next time I'll probably decrease the amount of pepper as 2 T was a little intense for the smaller roast. This one is a keeper. Thanks for sharing, Tammy!

Pork Chops with Dijon-Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
I followed suggestion of a previous reviewer and pan-fried chops seasoned with bouillon and seasonings. Then removed the chops and made the sauce in the same pan. Didn't have yogurt so substituted sour cream - rich and yummy! Served the sauce on the side and also used it for dipping cooked veggies (broccoli and asparagus works great!). We loved this one. A really easy way to dress up ordinary pork chops and quite a treat for low-carb diets!
