Nonna's Tuscan Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
The flavor in this dressing is excellent and it is not real thick once it's blended, but I loved it! Next time I will add less liquid as others suggested.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Yum. This soup was easy to make, and tastes great. I added about a cup more water, extra potatoes, ham, celery and carrots. Having it for lunch at work now, thanks for the recipe. I will be making a lot in the winter!

Veggie No Boiling Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
I had to make something for dinner that was good and quick, we had a contractor friend at our house doing some long awaited work so I wanted to make something good and hearty. This recipe took some time to assemble (sauteeing and chopping), but turned out great. I used zuchinni, squash and red onion, but you could use any veggies you like. The consistency was perfect - not too saucy or dry.

Danish Meatballs with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
This was REALLY good! I love the dill with the sour cream and it was so easy to make. I served over brown rice w/side of veggies. The meatballs had a great flavor and really weren't too time consuming either. Glad I found this recipe, I don't cook much with dill, but really enjoyed the flavor-1/4 cup is a perfect amount! Also, forgot to get heavy cream for the meatballs and just used regular milk instead.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This was light and refreshing with a simple yet flavorful taste. You could change this so many ways, but I made it as is and was great. I did make a extra dressing like other reviewers suggested. I'll make this again when I need to bring a dish somewhere.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Great flavor, my husband kept asking if it took me very long to make...meaning, if it didn't take too long to make, please make it again! I certainly will, I used 1/2 tsp salt for marinade and sauce, definitely double the sauce and served over brown rice, otherwise made per the recipe, thanks!

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I ended up marinating for two nights instead of one and it turned out really tender and flavorful, perfect for the BBQ. Will keep this recipe handy for more BBQ's to come.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
I changed this recipe some with the veggies I used, canned beans (used chili and kidney) and used turkey and johnsons bratwurst, but followed the spices per the recipe and I loved it. I make a lot of chili and am pretty particular about the taste of my chili, this one's a keeper and maybe the replacement of my "go to chili"!

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
The thing I loved about this recipe is it has lots of veggies and you can keep adding all you want. I was a little skeptical adding the peanut butter and wondering if there would be enough flavor, but it really works! It was fantastic, husband loved it and we can freeze for lunches. I sauteed the garlic, celery, onion and red bell pepper, added to the soup and let it simmer about an hour, then added the peanut butter at the last. Thanks for the great soup recipe!

Vegetable Dill Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Made this dip for an appetizer veggie tray for Thanksgiving. It was light and flavorful and not super filling right before the big meal. I got a lot of compliments and we continued to eat it with leftover veggies. It's different than ranch, which is a nice change. The recipe makes a lot too!

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
This soup was great, it thickened at the end, just as I was worried it was too soupy. I added a few chunks of garlic to cook w/peas and ham too that gave it added flavor. I simmered the ham for at least an hour before adding peas and veggies.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
This recipe was so easy and the perfect flavor and richness of the good ol comfort food I was looking for. Definitely add 3/4 cup of milk before baking, I only cooked for 30 mins and stayed moist next day.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
This salad is awesome! I'm so glad I tried this and made it for my sons 1st birthday! I got lots of compliments and didn't even include the pear because they weren't ripe. I can't wait to make with some ripe pear!

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Made this when we went camping, I was really hoping it would be good because it was the salad I was to bring to the table for two nights. I made it 24 hrs ahead, didn't add the carrots, 1/2 the sugar and soaked the red onion in water for about 5 mins before mixing the salad to tone down the onion flavor. Was awesome, my husband asked why I don't make it at home, now I will! :)

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Made these for an appetizer on Christmas Day. I made these in stages so I wouldn' thave so much to do on Christmas. I seeded the jalepeno, then blanched them so they wouldn't be too hot-spicy. Put them in ice cold water to stop cooking and retain color, dried them and filled with cream cheese. I cooked the bacon in oven for approx 7-10 mins, just so they start to cook a little but aren't done, then wrapped the jalepenos using one full piece of bacon and used water soaked toothpicks to hold them together. Wrapped up the platter and refrigerated for a day & 1/2. Simply, popped them in the oven on Christmas on 350 for 25 -30 mins and they were done perfectly....oh, even though people warn not to touch your eyes after handling jalepenos, I touched my cheek/nose area and it was potent, burned for awhile...careful.

Dee's Roast Pork for Tacos

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
My sister and I made this for our family dinner while we were camping on the coast last weekend. Put a pork shoulder roast in the crockpot, cooked for 7 hrs, was falling off the bone and super easy to shred. The seasonings were great (will add a little more next time), served w/corn tortillas, lime, cabbage, salsa and sour cream. Yum, will definitely make this again! Super easy dinner to make when traveling in the RV.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
I thought this was great. Wasn't too time consuming to make and the taste was really good. I used a whole packet of alfredo sauce mix and it was perfect.
