Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
This soup was suprisingly good. I was looking to make a vegetable pasta soup, and I used the recipe ingredients and added a couple of other things. I added some peas, a zucchini, doubled the beans (which I used from a can), doubled the garlic, carrots, and celery, substituted rice pasta shells instead of regular pasta and used 1/2 chicken stock and 1/2 beef stock instead of all beef stock. It was really flavorful, and incredibly easy and quick to make with the canned beans. My husband loved it, and you can make a lot and have leftovers. This is a real keeper in my house.

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
OMG, what a great recipe! And so simple too. After purchasing a mandoline the other day, I went searching for a recipe to try it out. I took the suggestions about the parchment paper and used the setting just under 1/8" for crinkle cut. I used a paper towel to dry the slices and sprayed the paper with PAM, laid out the slices, and sprayed again, then added some salt and garlic powder(I like garlic chips). After about 7 minutes I took them from the microwave as they started to brown as others recommended, but they didn't crisp up after a few minutes(the front was crisp but the side next to the paper was a little soggy, so I turned them over and put them back in for another 3 minutes. They came out perfect!! I will definitely make these again. **UPDATE** My husband suggested using the microwave plate we use for bacon(the kind with raised ridges),and the chips really came out well. It is probably because they were able to crisp underneath due to the raised surface. I did about 9 1/2 minutes in the microwave to get the right consistency, but I am sure it will vary.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
What an absolutely simple, yet elegant and really delicious recipe! I had printed the recipe up a while ago and may have used it before in another version,but never made it as listed until just now, on the request of my husband. The recipe is deceivingly simple. At the last 15 minutes of cooking, the sauce thickens up nicely. I had fresh oregano in my garden so used 2X the amount recommended for dried and it was very tasty. I also added chopped fresh garlic while it was cooking covered. Paired with fusilli pasta, my family loved it. Definitely a keeper recipe!

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I had always been interested in recreating the thai chicken pasta that was so delicious at the Cheesecake Factory but always shied away due to the calories of the peanut sauce and the pasta involved. Well, this recipe, with a couple of tweaks as recommended by reviewers, is a darn good replica. I cleaned up the recipe a bit for my particular diet and substituted 1 large tablespoon of almond butter instead of either crushed peanuts or the peanut butter previously suggested. Additionally, I used kelp noodles, because I am avoiding wheat, but only for convenience. This recipe would also work with rice noodles or regular noodles.Yumm!! It's a keeper. My husband also loved it.

Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
Wow,this dish really blew me away. I was looking for a good artichoke and chicken dish and decided to try this one, although the actual recipe and ingredients didn't seem especially enticing. I tried this recipe as is, although after reading reviews, I dipped thinly sliced chicken breasts in flour with some herbs salt and pepper to add some extra flavor before sauteing them in the olive oil. I also used Muir Glen fire-roasted diced tomatoes with green chili as the tomatoes and a dash of red pepper flakes. It added a bit of a nice kick. My husband loved it and I must agree. Definitely a keeper.

Green Bean and Portobello Mushroom Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
I have been looking for a variation of the usual cream of mushroom/green bean casserole dish for the Passover holiday, and after reading the reviews on this recipe I tried it. It was an incredible hit. My family loved it and couldn't stop raving about it. You can make it the night before and just add the cheese the next day after warming. The only change I made to the recipe was to use turkey bacon in lieu of real bacon for kosher reasons. I will definitely make this one again.

Classy Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
I too was looking for an alternative green bean recipe/casserole that you make ahead of time, so I tried this recipe. Although a couple of my family said they liked it, I personally found the recipe too sharp with sour cream and not to my liking. I would not make this again.

Cuban Midnight Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
I just loved this sandwich!!Deceptively simple recipe. I am not a normal fan of "cuban sandwiches", but this was delicious. My husband used dijon mustard and we agree the mayo/dressing really makes it tasty. I'm saving this recipe!

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
Great recipe, especially good to make after the Thanksgiving Ham leftover of the ham hock. I added garlic powder and smashed about 1/2 of the potaotes to thicken the soup. My husband couldn't get enough!!
