Creamy Potato Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
Oh, yum! I made this as written, with one small change: I added two chicken bouillon cubes to the soup, because I thought it might need a little "something extra." This was really great soup, and it was exceptionally easy. Everyone in the family, including my "I don't like soup" son, loved it. Next time, I may add chopped celery and carrot, but really, it doesn't need a thing. Thanks for a great recipe.

Pecan Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2014
Excellent! The only thing I changed was to toast the pecan pieces first, to bring out the nutty flavor. This is a great side dish that I will definitely make again. Impressive enough for company, easy enough to make on a weeknight. Thanks for a great recipe!

Spaghetti Pizza Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
Excellent! Easy, flavorful. Served with a nice green salad and garlic bread, the entire family loved it. This is a nice change from our usual weekly spaghetti dinner. Thanks!

Risotto with Tomato, Corn and Basil

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This is a nice risotto, on the sweet side thanks to the wonderful addition of corn. I din't peel the tomato, just seeded and chopped it and added it in for the last few minutes. Next time I'll try substituting chicken broth for the water for a little more savory taste. Be sure to allow more cooking time than the recipe suggests; it took me about 50 minutes from start to finish. Don't add the liquid too quickly or cook it over very high heat to try to speed up the absorption of the liquid; risotto always takes a while, but it's worth it!

Potato Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Excellent and easy; a definite keeper. The only thing I changed was that I used leftover cooked, cubed potatoes; I browned them with the onions and it was very tasty. I reduced the overall cooking time since the potatoes were already cooked. My only problem is that with 3 grown men to feed, there were no leftovers! This would serve 6 as a soup course, but as a main course (served with crusty bread and a salad) I wouldn't plan on getting more than 4 servings.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I've tried several methods for roasting turkey over the years (cooking bags, rubbing with butter or oil, using different herbs and seasonings) but this was by far the best. My search for the perfect Thanksgiving turkey recipe is over. Everyone at the table loved it. Thank you!

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
This is an easy, very tasty casserole which was a huge hit with everyone. I made it almost exactly as written. The only thing I changed was to add a layer of black beans and a layer of frozen corn on top of the rice, then top with remaining ingredients. Iit doesn't remain layered (like lasagne) when served, so I just used one layer of each ingredient. This will be in my regular casserole rotation. Thanks!

My Favorite Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Super-easy, super-tasty. If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would. I made it almost exactly as written, only changing a few things: to cut down on the fat, I used 1/2 the amount of butter and reduced-fat cream cheese. Also, based on what other reviewers suggested, I added a bottle of clam juice with a can of crab meat before simmering. This was still very rich, very tasty and made plenty for our family of 4 (three of whom... the guys... are big eaters). Serve with crackers and a salad, and there's dinner!

Red, White and Blue Slaw Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
Five stars are not enough! I'm not a cole slaw fan but I made it for DH who loved it... then the kids loved it... so I tried it, and now I love it too! I used an entire package of shredded cabbage, and Marzetti's Light slaw dressing, and followed the recipe just as it's written. I am now a convert to cole slaw, and I will use this recipe often. Thank you!

Baked Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Excellent! I changed it just a little, though. Based on others' recommendations, 1 doubled the scallops to 2 pounds; eliminated the flounder; added 1 bottle clam juice and reduced the milk to 2 cups. Also, I didn't use the pepper (we don't care for it) and added some garlic to the onion as it sauteed. I put it together the day before, then all I had to do was pop it in the oven. It got rave reviews from everyone around the holiday table. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I wish I could rate this higher. It was amazing! I was worried about the timing, so I did most of it ahead of time. I used a blender to make a smooth sauce of the shallots and beef broth mixture, and refrigerated that overnight. The next day, it was pretty easy to finish it up. I highly recommend this recipe!

Garlic Parmesan Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
This was a great accompaniment to our Christmas dinner. I worried that people would think that it was weird to pull bread apart with your hands at a nice holiday meal, but it was not a concern. Everyone loved it. Thanks!

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Very, very tasty. I made it exactly as written, just omitting the mushrooms (one son won't eat them). These fit perfectly in two deep-dish crusts. I will definitely be making this again... thanks!

World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2013
By far, the best potato salad I've ever had. I used a few suggestions from other reviewers: Doubled the corn starch to 2 tsp, used 1 tsp ground mustard instead of prepared, and added 1 tsp celery seed. This dressing is amazing. The recipe made lots of dressing; next time, I will throw in a few extra potatoes so that I can have leftovers. (Or, I can hope for leftovers!) Thanks!

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
Oh man, this is so good! I've scrapped my old beef chili recipe; this is the only one I need. The only changes I made were suggested by other reviewers. I used good-quality salsa verde and fire-roasted tomatoes; one can of corn, drained; and two cans of white beans, drained. Served with shredded cheddar and sour cream, with fresh cornbread on the side. Perfect for these cold winter's days! Thank you!

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2014
Absolutely perfect as written. I took this to a pot-luck and of the three salads that were on the buffet table, this is the only one that completely ran out. Thank you for a fabulous recipe!

Caramel Apple Pie II

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
This pie went so fast at our family's Christmas party that I never got a chance to taste it! Based on that fact alone, it gets five stars from me. Next time, I'm keeping it at home with me! Thanks for a great recipe.
