Tantalizing Turkey and Blue Cheese Meatballs

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
I made this recipe almost exactly as written (I used half the black pepper called for). Unfortunately the meat mixture was too wet to form into meat balls. An additional 1/2 cup of bread crumbs did the trick. I really enjoyed this recipe. The ingredients were subtle and complemented each other well. I served the meatballs with a balsamic reduction along with sides of wilted spinach and pasta with homemade pesto sauce. YUM! On a sorry note, my husband and children are traditionalists and prefer the same old turkey meatballs I usually make (not your fault). They gave you between 1 and 3 stars. However, I gave you 5! Since my vote counts more (after all, I searched for recipe, made recipe, prepared appropriate accompaniments and took the time to review said recipe), I gave you an average 4 star rating. You did a great job and should be proud of this recipe. I am impressed that this was submitted by a 15 year old. I look forward to great things from you!

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!

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

Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
Yum! A real kid pleaser. Being true to my nature I had to make a modification or two: I used half the amount of onion and I added some crushed red pepper flakes for a little kick. I served it with homemade fries. We have a lot of full tummies this evening! Thanks for sharing.

We do a version of this often. I decided to follow your recipe the other day based on the wonderful reviews you've recieved. Wow! A perfect balance of ingredients. I have nothing to add as this recipe is perfect as written.

Dakota's Texas Style Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I knew this recipe would be pretty "spicy" (too much so for the kids) so I only added 2 chipotle peppers. Are those sirens I hear?...Yep...this is definitely 5 alarm chili. Yikes, my burning mouth! LOL. It was good but not kid friendly. To save my kids I had to add the following to tone down the heat: 1 can tomato sauce and 1/4 cup of sugar. I also felt the chili needed salt so I added a few teaspoons of the kosher variety. I served with shredded cheddar, cilantro, sour cream and corn bread. Much better. Oh, and have an ice cold glass of milk at the ready to extinguish further "fires". Thanks for sharing the recipe. It was fun!

West African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I was so happy to find this recipe! I am one of he co-creators of the "Shrinking Chatter Safari through Africa" (found on the recipe exchange) and had been looking for a recipe to try out in honor of our trek. The heat of this dish is just right leaving a lingering tingle on the tongue. Very tasty and the peanut butter adds an extra depth of flavor that the whole family thoroughly enjoyed. I made exactly as written using olive oil for the veggie oil in the recipe. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for a wonderful recipe which will be a keeper in our rotation.

What an easy and fun project to do with your children! My daughter and I made a whole batch for a party tomorrow. In additon to vanilla frosting we also used chocolate. I do believe they'll be the hit of the party!

Chicken Potato Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Having been sick with the flu for the past week, I needed something that was easy, quick and nutritious for the family. This recipe certainly did the trick. I used bonesless, skinless chicken breasts. Because of that, the cook time was not near that of the original recipe. Only complaint from family was that it tasted too much like Italian dressing. Next time I will halve the amount called for It was a tasty and easy recipe. This will definitely go into my rotation.

Herbed Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
This was a tasty way to prepare salmon. The only change I made was to use my pampered chef baking sheet and seal it with aluminum foil. I had a large salmon and it took longer than the stated time to cook. When it was done it was very moist and flavorful. I used fresh herbs from my garden and am glad I did! Thank you for a simple and delicious recipe.

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.

Cumin Lamb Steaks with Smashed Potatoes, Wilted Spinach and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Disclaimer: I made the lamb only, not the spinach or potatoes so my review is focused on only the lamb. Very interesting combination of flavors. I never would have thought of cumin and a red wine reduction going together but in this circumstance it really works. The lamb was quite flavorful and my daughter (the other lamb lover in the family) enjoyed this dish as much, if not more, than I. I did feel the need to add a little kosher salt to the wine sauce because I felt it was just a touch too sweet. Otherwise, no modifications. Thanks for submitting a unique and flavorful recipe.

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.

Pear and Blue Cheese Pastry Triangles

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I chose to make this appetizer because I LOVE blue cheese, I LOVE pears and I most especially LOVE carmelized onions. I made this exactly as written except using premade phyllo cups. I'm glad I did as it was a time saver. The filling was enough to fill 45 cups with some pear left over. They smelled so good when I took them out of the oven. Unfortunately, the teaspoon of blue cheese per pastry was a bit heavy handed. I liked them okay, but they were not the hit of my party as I had hoped they would be. :(

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, ...

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!

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.
