Stuffed Zucchini with Chicken Sausage

Reviewed: May 13, 2011
I'm glad I read the reviews that mentioned the amount of leftover stuffing. I used 4 medium zucchini and the amount of stuffing was perfect. I also used Italian turkey sausage because that was all i could find. 2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper might be too much for most people, but my husband and I spicy food so it was delicious to us. This is a KEEPER!

Butternut Squash Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This recipe is awesome! I followed it exactly except I used dried thyme instead of fresh and used half an onion. I made it last night and my husband asked for it again tonight. I made sure that i cubed the squash into pretty small pieces (1 inch cubes) and mashed the casserole right before it was done. I also drizzled a little extra olive oil on the casserole after I mashed it up to give it a little extra moisture. Definitely a keeper.

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This recipe is amazing! I read that other reviews mentioned it was too dry. I used half a bell pepper and half an onion rather than 1/8 cup each. I felt that this added some moisture to the biscuit. I used grands jr flaky biscuits and they turned out great. I made sure I sprayed Pam on the muffin pans and flattened out the biscuits and left them on a plate until i was absolutely ready to put them in the pan. Right before I placed them in the muffin pan, I flattened them and spread them out some more because they DO tend to shrink back into a smaller size. My husband LOVED them. I made them last night and tonight again as well. They reheat wonderfully, and I serve them with a side of country gravy to dip them in. (the dry mix packaged kind at the store) LOVE THIS RECIPE!!!!

Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
I absolutely loved this recipe. I did make a few changes however. I doubled the amount of mushrooms because I love them, and I sauteed them with the onions and garlic for a few minutes before adding them to the soup. I used bone in pork chops, approx 1 inch thick. Some parts were a little overcooked so next time I will either use thicker cuts or reduce the cooking time. My husband couldn't get over how delicious they turned out.

Tantalizing Turkey and Blue Cheese Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I have made these twice, and the only changes I made were to double the amount of blue cheese (because my fiance loves it so much) and I use 1.2 lbs of ground turkey breast (because that is what is packaged at the store). I think by using the turkey breast it is still juicy without being too mushy since there is virtually no fat. Other users have mentioned that their meatballs were too moist. I also spray Pam on a 24 count mini muffin pan (per the suggestion by another member) and use approx. 2 in meatballs. It has come out perfectly every time with 24 evenly sized meatballs. I serve with collard greens and garlic and olive oil vermicelli by Rice a Roni and it is amazing. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!!!

Enchilada Casserole III

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I used Old El Paso canned enchilada sauce (two hot and one mild) because I prefer my food with a little kick rather than the first three ingredients. I also used ground turkey breast because that what I had on hand. I found this recipe to be good, however next time I think I will probably double the amount of tortillas I use because I felt like I was eating only meat and beans.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I found it to be too bland for my taste. Usually I squeeze lemon over each piece and cover with lemon pepper. It has more flavor with less effort.

Broccoli Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I used velveeta cheese (approx 8ounces) and milk instead of the jar of processed cheese. The velveeta was reduced fat and the milk was skim. I chopped the velveeta into one inch cubes and spread them out in the casserole, then stirred it twice while baking. I also added crushed ritz crackers on top about five minutes before it was finished. It was delicious and I got numerous compliments on it. I have made it for three Thanksgiving dinners this week.

Yummy Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
I thought it was a good basic recipe, but make sure to whip the mixture until it is very light and fluffy otherwise it will turn into a brick. I also think I will add crushed pecans and more brown sugar and butter to the top so as to make it crunchier and sweeter.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I only give this four stars because I added a half of an onion chopped, a can of mushrooms, and frozen peas in when I added the soup. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a T. I served it over wide whole wheat noodles and it was AMAZING! Will make again!!!

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
I followed other peoples' advice and chopped a yellow onion and placed it under the roast. I also used crushed pineapple and whole cranberry sauce becaue thats what I had on hand. It was very delicious. I definitely recommend pouring teriyaki sauce over the entire roast and sprinkling thyme and rosemary on it as well. The meat was so tender it fell apart and I served it with chicken flavored rice and a salad. I will be making this again because both my husband and I loved it.

Breaded Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
I followed the recipe almost exactly. I used three large chicken breasts and pounded them flat for even cooking and cooked approx 14 minutes on each side. I used the same amount of breading mixture and felt that it was the right amount. I also added more parm. when I flipped them over. I think the cheese is the only reason why it got a crispy crust. I might have used too much butter. Overall, very good and easy.

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
I did enjoy this recipe and will continue to make it, however I feel it needs a little tweaking. I used a split whole chicken and so it took about 50 minutes to cook the breasts. Did everybody else broil on high or low? Next time I will inject the breasts with the same marinade as well baste the chicken in it.

Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
I love this recipe and I am not a big meatloaf fan. If you like mushrooms go ahead and double the amount. Makes for great leftovers.

International Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
I was a bit wary about making this stew, but the other reviews made me feel otherwise. I adjusted the rosemary to 1 tablespoon and the flavor was still overwhelming. The meat was not as tender as it would be in a crockpot and all in all it lacked flavor. My boyfriend loves to eat and he didn't finish his bowl. I will never make this again.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
I doubled the soup/sour cream mixture and used the reduced fat soup and fat free sour cream and it tasted great. I also used somebody else's tip and added some cheese in each of the enchiladas. I will definitely continue to make this again and again.

Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish-and-Roasted Garlic Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2005
I listened to another review and upped the horseradish to 1 cup and the garlic to 5 heads. I would add about 15 to 20 minutes to the cook time because my first attempt came out almost raw and my second attempt was slightly over done. Other than that, excellent!

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
I read the reviews and even added some shredded cheese to the top. It didn't do much for the flavor.
