Easy White Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I made as is, with the exception of substituting Cheddar for Monterey Jack. It was perfect! Just the right amount of heat. You get 5 stars for making my husband say, and I quote, "This is very good!" Next time I'm going to make "Black and White Chili" by subbing a can of black beans for one of the cans of white beans.

Sexy Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
Very very simple and very very tasty. I did make 2 minor modifications: I added fresh basil from my herb garden and freshly squeezed lemon juice to the marinade.

Perfect as is. however, I have found that this recipe becomes even more special when one adds a heaping dash of prayers and good wishes!

Green Beans with Almonds

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
This was quite good. I made them the other night to go with some Greek inspired meatballs and it was the perfect addition. I made no changes. I always have green beans and almonds on hand so this will now go into my recipe rotation. Thanks for sharing.

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
I did not have Italian sausage on hand (hubby doesn't eat pork) so I used a recipe on the site to make my own using ground turkey: Homemade ItalianTurkey Sausage. Let me tell you this soup was fantastic and had a wonderful flavor profile. I am so glad AR had it as Recipe of the Day the other week. It will go into my meal rotation for sure.

Homemade Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
The only changes I made were fresh garlic rather than powder and adding a few sprinkles of chili pepper for a little heat. This was so easy and so very, very tasty! I used it in the Tuscan Soup recipe on this site. Thank you so much for sharing. This will become a staple in the Sister House as the possibilities are endless: pizza, meat sauce, etc, ...

Turkish Fish Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I didn't have sumac and substituted the following: rice for the couscous and chicken broth for the water. It was a delightful dish and I'm sure, had I had the proper ingredients on hand, it would have been absolutely outstanding. It's a keeper!

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I made as written and it was quite bland. Needs seasoning such as cilantro or cumin. I should have used my better judgement and added.

Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
I made these to hold a chunky style clam chowder. Being a novice baker I was sure to try and follow the recipe exactly. My bowls didn't rise so well after the 2nd rise but still held a decent quantity of soup. The bread was a tad sweet but it did not distract from the flavor of the soup. I will be trying other recipes to compare.

Becky's Easy Cilantro Lime Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
This was a very tasty rice dish. I made as written, except using standard rice as opposed to instant. It was a nice accompaniment to the broiled tilapia that I had marinated in olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, chili peppers, etc. We did top the rice with some shredded cheddar which gave the rice a little more depth. I will keep this recipe in rotation. Thanks for sharing!

Feta Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
We're always looking for new ways to use ground turkey as my husband does not eat beef. I found this recipe and my 14 year old daughter made these the other night. These were very, very tasty. Next time, though, I'll serve inside Peppy's Pita bread and topped with my Easy Greek Cucumber Yogurt Sauce. Both recipes are available on this site. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It's a keeper.

M's Sloppy Joe Sauce

a good base recipe. I did add 2 tbsp of tomato paste to thicken up the meat mixture but minor alteration.

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I used breasts instead of thighs and fresh garlic rather than powdered. My herbs were straight from the garden. I took others advice and put some of the seasoning between the breast and skin. The chicken was dry despite frequent basting, but the skin was crispy and tasty. The potatoes, however were outstanding! This recipe has 5 star potential and the next time I make it I will allow the chicken to marinate, in a tightly sealed plastic baggie, for 4+ hours or overnight. I really think that is what is needed for the flavors to infuse into the meat. This was a nice recipe and I thank you for sharing.

Southern Fried Chicken Livers

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
I followed this recipe for chicken gizzards, instead of livers, and it worked beautifully! Thanks for this simple recipe, Cindy!

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
I made exactly as written and am sorry to say I was disappointed. I really wanted to like these since so many from the exchange have recommended this recipe. I guess it boils down to the fact that when I think of the word "chip" I think of something that would have a bit of a crisp or crunch. That was not the case with this recipe. I think I'll just stick to roasting my zucchini with a simple olive oil/fresh herb marinade. I do appreciate, however, you sharing this recipe as I truly like to experiment with new dishes.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This was an easy and lovely marinade. I found out, however, that I am not a fan of mahi mahi (not your fault and not factored into my review/rating). Fortunately I had the foresight to have marinaded some tilapia filets also. The marinade worked well with the delicate fish. I will definitely use the marinade with other seafood favorites. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Herbed Greek Roasted Potatoes with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
5 stars from each and every one of us! I made this as written except that I cut the potatoes smaller, substituted chicken broth for the water and marinaded the potatoes to include the herbs. These were done in about an hour at 410. Delicious and a big hit with the whole family. I served with my "Mediterranean" style turkey meatloaf and it made for the perfect dinner! Thank you, Cyndi, for sharing an outstanding side dish!

Stacey's Fabulous Purple Potato Gratin

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
I found this recipe and was intrigued. I decided to make this with ingredients I had on hand: Idaho rather than purple potatoes, Feta rather than Goat Cheese, and Green Onion rather than leaks. I felt these were minor modifications and am pleased to report that this lived up to its name...it is indeed FABULOUS. I was concerned about the lack of herbs and seasonings but it was perfect as written. I did top with fresh chives, from my garden, so that I could take a "pretty" picture. Thanks for this recipe as it is a keeper.

Carolina Country Style Ribs

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
This was a very easy and tasty recipe. I doubled the marinade and had enough to make over 6 lbs. of ribs with plenty of leftover sauce. I placed the leftover meat in my food processor and added additional sauce for a wonderfully delicious pulled pork!
