Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Easy and so delicious. Loved the dressing. I made as written, and added a few more diced veggies that need to be used up, some carrot and red pepper. Perfect with our grilled sausage sammies!

Wintertime French Style Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
OK, you had me at "French". And "herbes de Provence". Not to mention the tumeric. I love split pea soup, and this did not disappoint. I prepared as written with the exception of using two medium sized potatoes, peeled and diced, and about half of the carrots called for. I added them in after the boil down to simmer, and just let it go for a hour and a half. Delicious. Perhaps not as "hearty" as the submitter intended, but excellent none the less!

New Year's Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
Just made this for lunch as part of the Recipe Group selection of the week. This was just delicious, quick, and easy. First thing out of hub's mouth was "I love the bacon in this!". Me too. I used pepper bacon, as that's what I have on hand, and it added a really nice peppery flavor. I was out of red pepper, so I subbed some diced zucchini, summer squash, and shredded carrot in addition to the peas and onions. Served with egg rolls. A hit and a definite do-over. Thanks for sharing your recipe with AR.

Quick and Easy Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
Not sure what happened here, but my bread came out more like a huge cheese biscuit than bread. I followed the recipe to a "T" with the exception of less sugar, just a tablespoon. Oh, well, it was fun to try, and the first slices out of the oven slathered in butter were tasty. But as it cooled it just became one big brick. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Chorizo Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2013
These were tasty! Made as written, but had trouble adding the soup to the filled pepper, my meat/rice mixture was very dense. Loved the flavorful chorizo, so yummy! I didn't think the cheese added to the meat/rice mixture added much flavor, except more calories. Next time I make these I think I'll omit the soup and just top with cheese. Thank you for sharing your recipe with AR, we enjoyed these.

Italian Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
These were so easy and tasty! The meatballs were light, flavorful, and moist. I prepared the recipe exactly as written, just a small exception subbing fresh basil for parsley. My preparation yeilded about 36 smallish sized meatballs. I sprayed a cookie sheet with Pam instead of the Melt (sorry, no Melt in these parts!). I cooked about 17 minutes at 400*, perfect doneness. I'll use this recipe many more times. Thanks, Melt!

Rao's Marinara Sauce (Salsa Marinara)

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
My house smelled like a true Italian kitchen! A wonderful sauce with easy prep, this is my new go-to. I did use the salt pork, my first time cooking with it, super salty stuff! I thought it would melt down more than it did. I measured my salt since this was the first time making, I used about a teaspoon or so. I also added about 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar as I like a sweeter sauce and it cuts the acidity. Other ingredients exactly as published, with a one hour simmer time. Yummy stuff, I'll make many more times. Thanks for the recipe, Mom!

Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Thanks for sharing your recipe, Sara, this was a hit for lunch today, my hub's favorite. I had veggies & fresh basil to use up from Christmas, this was perfect use of it. Had to take some liberties with the recipe to use what I had on hand. I sauteed the veg in 3 tbsp butter and a drizzle of oil, then added a 28 oz can crushed tomatoes. I used a tomato/chicken broth and ended up using two cups, as my sauce/veggie mix was very thick (probably the crushed tomato sub). I used a whole pack of fresh basil on it's last legs and a sprinkle of dried oregano. I just pureed that mix in the blender, back in the pot, then added half and half to the mix until a nice consistency, about 1 1/2 to 2 cups. I also added some white sugar, asd I like a little sweetness to counteract the acidity of the tomatoes. Very good soup!

Pear and Prosciutto Bruschetta

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
Loved this yummy bruschetta recipe! I served for Christmas Eve celebrations and it was a hit. I did do some tweaking based on reviews and personal preferences. I added whipped cream cheese to the blue cheese crumbles to make a creamy, spreadable mixture. I'm not crazy about raw onions, so I diced a large red onion and sauteed with diced bacon until the bacon was crisp, then added balsamic vinegar and cooked down until reduced. That went on top of the toasted baguettes slices with spread. I topped with a slice of pear and chopped fresh thyme. These were so pretty and tasty. Definitely a do-over for sure. Thanks for sharing your recipe with AR!

Smoked Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
What a wonderful soup! So rich and satifying. I prepared this with leftover slow-cooked turkey breast, just cubed and added a few drops of liquid smoke for a delicious smokey taste. I doubled the curry, wow, the curry really makes this soup. Also used a cup or so of heavy cream instead of the published amount of 1/2 & 1/2, as that's what I had on hand. Highly recommended & a definite do-over. Thanks for sharing your recipe with AR.

Old-Fashioned Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
This is a wonderful recipe to "use up" what you have on hand, very versitle and forgiving. I was in the mood for a veggie-filled, meatless soup, and this fit the bill perfectly. I had some serious tweaks to use what I had on hand, no canned tomatoes, but I did have a 15 oz zucchini with tomatoes, and a fresh one, which I diced. I also added two diced potato, a small can of peas, and some broken thin spaghetti. Also added a sprinkle or two of garlic powder and celery salt in place of plain salt. This was delicious and satisfying. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Plenty to go in the freezer for lunches.

Empanadas (Beef Turnovers)

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
This was my first attempt at making empanadas, they turned out great. Loved this filling, and assembling was fun and easy, just don't be in a rush when you prepare this recipe! I baked these at 400* for 30 minutes, just a bit too crunchy, I'll lower the heat to 375* next time and bake only 25 minutes. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Goya! Love your products and your recipes are always spot-on.

Creamed Onions and Sage

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
Prepared this for Thanksgiving this year and it was a hit. I prepared with frozen pearl onions, just boiled about 6 minutes or so per package directions, and made the sauce as written. Found it was a tad bland, so I added more fresh sage and more salt and white pepper. I like the addition of the lemon, but next time I make these I think I'll use sherry or white wine. I prepared a day in advance, refrigerated, and baked 350* for about 40 minutes or so before serving. Tasty and received rave reviews. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Florentine Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Absolutely loved this warm pasta salad. A perfect side for just about anything, I served with strip steaks. I made the recipe closely as written, but halved the pasta, and a little less spinach and mushroom. What a versitile dish, this would be perfect as a vegetarian main, or a terrific way to re-purpose left over shrimp, chicken, pork or beef. Hubs raved over this, and that doesn't happen often with sides. Thanks for sharing your dish!

Honey Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
What a wonderful grilled shrimp recipe! So full of flavor. I loved the basting sauce, honey and shrimp are a perfect combo. I made the marinade and basting sauce exactly as written with a small exception, just added a drizzle of sesame oil to the marinade. Hubs grilled these to perfection. Delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe, it's a for sure do-over!

Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I doctored this recipe up based on the reviews, added dried cherries to the stuffing, doubled the wine and added a 1/2 cup apple juice for more sauce. I also sprinkled some brown sugar, cinnamon, and allspice on the chicken breasts. I added diced apple to the sauce, too. This was tasty, just didn't knock me out. Bland with the chicken, I suppose I prefer pork with apple. I did enjoy trying this nice, seasonal dish. Thanks for sharing with us.

Basic Spicy Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Wow, great basic recipe, loved this! I make hot italian sausages in the slow cooker, usually just dump a jar of prepared sauce for a quick fix, but was out of sauce. I did have a can of crushed tomatoes, and found this recipe. So glad I did. I did do some doctoring, in addition to the recipe ingredients I added some fine chopped carrot, about 1/2 cup red wine, and a packet of beef boulion in place of salt. I also added some sugar, about two tablespoons, to cut the acidity and sweeten a bit. Delicious. Good-bye jarred sauce!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Loved this super simple, yet sophistocated side. I served with filet of beef, perfect accompanyment. I made as directed, but tossed the asparagus with EVOO. I also placed the butter, vinegar, and teriyaki sauce in the micro and VIOLA!, sauce. Will use this recipe many times, thank you for sharing with AR.

Caramelized Onion and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Absolutely loved this recipe! I made exactly as written, the flavors are outstanding. I served this with filet of beef, perfect combination. A familiar side, but the bold, hearty flavors make this a nice updated companion to beef. A keeper and a definite do-over. Thanks for sharing your recipe with AR.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
What a terrific, simple, hearty soup for a dismal day! I piddled around today, and ended up running out of time to make this in the slow cooker, so I just prepared as written on the stove. I simmered about an hour, and added some elbows about 20 minutes before serving. I made as written, but added a teaspoon of dried thyme and a shake of liquid smoke for more depth of flavor in addition to the other ingredients. Loved this & so did hubby. Thanks for sharing with AR.
