Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
If you leave out the packaged taco seasoning packet, and just bump up your other seasonings, & with about a 1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch for thickening, you will avoid the saltiness (plus the additives & preservatives) of the pre packaged and it is great. Add onion or whatever other spices you like in your tacos or burritos. Tasty.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
I used all chicken broth (part homemade & part store bought broth in the box) Used fresh basil and fresh oregano from my garden and threw in some dried herbes de provence(an incredibly versatile herb mixture)Sauteed the sliced carrots with the onion and celery. Made the recipe for 8 and that made generous servings for 6 people. Everyone had 2 bowls. Delicious. Served with big green salad, rolls, fresh fruit and brownies for dessert.

Healthy Turkey Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
I used 1 lb. of lean ground turkey and doubled the rest of the ingrediants. It took about 50 minutes to cook and I also added fresh basil leaves to the top of the loaf about 3/4 of the way through cooking and a some sliced roma tomatos at the same time, made it look good plus the fresh basil tasted good too. As recipe said, I added lemon pepper to taste and this loaf is healthy and tasty. A winner.

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
To the previous post, yes, you can use the canned pumpkin, it is just pureed pumpkin, the same (almost)as if you cooked and pureed your own pumpkin. Delicious soup. More people need to try it. Think people's brain's go to "pumpkin pie" and think it will be sweet. Nope, it is a wonderful, savory soup. Good for you too!

Super Easy Salmon Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I noted that some reviewers commented on "way too much cracker crumbs"...well, if you read the recipe it only calls for 2/3 cup crumbs in the salmon mixture and the rest is for coating the patties....otherwise, this is a good recipe for salmon cakes; love that they are baked instead of fried. I did spray the baking sheet with a pam-like spray (natural one).

Mom's Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
If you use fresh brussels sprouts, and cut them into 1/4's and stir fry them in a little olive oil (or your preferred oil)instead of boiling then continue with the rest of the recipe instructions, it's even better.

Macaroni Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
This is the same recipe we've used forever. However, I did cut back on the amount of macaroni...32 oz. is waaay too many noodles; using 16 oz. is better, still get good results with 8 oz. and cut back on milk to 2 cups and eggs to 2 and you still get a good sized casserole. We like the top crusty, so I always add extra cheese on top. Also use sharp or extra sharp cheese for more flavor.

Brie en Croute

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
This is one of the most elegant, and easy appetizers there is. I have been making this for years. I took a tip from someone else and before baking, put it wrapped well in foil and freezer bag and froze it. Then when I baked it (a little longer) the cheese did not run out of the crust as it can do sometimes. There are many different variations on the fruit/nut mixture and the preserves/jam, I've done apricot preserves, raspberry jam, used walnuts instead of almonds, hazelnuts, the list is endless.

Easy Fried Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
My family loves spinach this way; on occasion I have added bacon. Try after sauteing the garlic, turning off the heat and putting the spinach in the pan, covered, and let sit for a few minutes and it wilts perfectly without being overcooked. My kids ate it when they were small and I never had to doctor it or bribe them to eat their spinach; fresh spinach is the only way to go!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
Delicious, simple, and served with garlic mashed potatoes or brown rice, it is real comfort food. The cream is what gives this dish the richness it deserves....regular milk with cornstarch? Yikes!!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
Don't understand the reviewers who lowered the heat and "covered" the dish?? That just makes for steamed cauliflower without the wonderful carmelizing of roasting vegetables. :-/

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
I have been doing meatloaf in the slow cooker for many years truly is wonderful, moist & tasty. Turkey loaf is great too. If you have an issue with removing it from the cooker, just make two double strips of aluminum foil (or 3) and put them in the pot first, leaving enough foil to hang out of the cooker to help remove it to your platter.

Dijon-Tarragon Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2006
This recipe is so delicious and everyone I've served it to raves; I always double the sauce and it is just right. Yum Yum. Ya gotta try this one. A super easy, elegant company meal, too. It is also an "Adkins diet" low carb recipe, that is until you add the sauteeing in flour as some have done.

Tamale Pie Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
As written, this recipe didn't work for me. I added some chili powder and cumin because when I tasted the meat mixture, it was very bland. Also, the cornmeal batter should be cooked until it is very, very thick,(use less water) like Italian polenta. It tasted good with added seasonings, but the bottom cornmeal batter layer was mushy and sloppy. I added a layer of cheese on top of the meat mixture and also sprinkled on top of the top layer of cornmeal. However, next time, no cornmeal on bottom and using my substitutions for spices.
