Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I made this exactly as written except for adding fresh steamed green beans after the onions were sauteed. I also mixed my own garam masala from a recipe on this site. I made it yesterday for lunches this week. Spiciness was perfect for me. I think it would be good with peanuts (salted?) tossed on top. And as another rated noted, the tomato soup sounded so odd but tastes perfect with the spices.

Cavatini II

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Great to put together ahead of time and fire up during the NFL playoffs! We substituted Italian sausage (sliced) for the pepperoni and it was oh-so-good. Our guests copied the recipe on the way out the door.

Honey Pork with Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
Tempted to give this 5*s because my 12 year old son said "This is good!" Easy, easy, easy. I used boneless pork rib, Knorr's pork gravy mix (because that's all I had on hand) and added a can of water chestnuts and cocktail (aka baby) corn. Served it with whole grain noodles. A crowd pleaser.

Ultimate Spicy Spud Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
Had our first snow this w'end in N. VA--perfect time for soup. Lightened this by using turkey sausage, no butter or seasoned salt and 2% evaporated milk. Used 7 potatoes and a can of veggie broth plus a can of red. sodium chicken broth and a whole yellow onion. Thicken with instant potato flakes (as others suggested), then a couple of shakes of cayenne kept it in the comfort zone for our kids. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar and dinner is served (in fact enough for 2 dinners in our 4 person home). Great basic recipe to enhance to your personal taste.

Sweet Potato Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
Wonderful taste and texture. My 9th grade son gobbled 2 of these in a matter of minutes after school. I halved the recipe and got 12 good-sized muffins, used less sugar as others suggested and substituted 3/4 C whole wheat flour for white. About 2 lbs of sweet potatoes (microwaved, not baked!) yeilded the 1+ cup mashed I needed for the halved recipe. Give these a try...I may add dried cranberries next time.

Pork Chop and Feta Skillet

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
Unbelievable! I used just-picked garden-fresh basil and rosemary, only needed juice of 1/2 of a large lemon for dipping, but poured the remaining lemon into the skillet as feta (used plain) was softening. Be sure to scrape bits from skillet to top chops. Mine were about 1/2" thick and boneless so I seared them about 3 mins/side and addtional 3 mins for feta. Moist and mouthwatering. Felt like I was dining out!

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2006
Wonderfully easy and tasty! I'll never use beef in meatloaf again. Only changes made were those already mentioned--added chopped onion, shredded cheese (1 C), a little worchestershire sauce and top with bbq sauce. You MUST try this...even good for a summer meal since it's so light.

Greek Salad Dip

Reviewed: May 19, 2006
I made this for our annual Mother's Day picnic and served it with Stacey's Simply Naked Pita Chips (from Costco). I also, as another rater noted, added the dressing until I got the desired consistency. I included chopped cucumber to round it out! If you love feta, you'll love this!

Vegetarian Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
TRY THIS on the stovetop w/out pressure cooker and without soaking! It's easy and tastes better than anything in a can! Skipped the pasta, too. Great.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
Moist, fluffy and yummy. HINT: Taste your sweet potatoes after mashing and adjust added sugar accordingly. I used less than 1/2 cup. Baked it in a 2.5 qt. casserole dish and used half the topping. This is now a Christmas tradition in our home.

Drop Dead Delicious Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
Easy, easy, easy! Twice per month we make 20 sandwiches for the homeless ministry at our church. I used a 66 oz. can of tuna and a bit less than the 2 cups of mayo! It turned out great and I'm sure the D.C. homeless folks will enjoy it. Thanks!

Pasta, Broccoli and Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
This is a great summertime meal. As suggested, we used grilled chicken and sauteed 8oz. fresh mushroom slices with the garlic. We are not big pesto fans so I substituted about 2 tsp basil and 1 tsp oregano and used only about 1/2 C parmesan. A 14.5 oz can of dice tomatoes worked instead of fresh. Yum!
