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.

Melissa's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
This is a nice simple prep dish for a weeknight family meal. I prepared in the morning, covered with foil, and then just poppped in the oven at dinner time. I found it a bit on the bland side even with some doctoring. I added orange and green pepper stips to the mix, a very pretty presentation. I also marinated my chicken in italian dressing for even more flavor, and used some extra spices. Depite these efforts, this just didn't knock me out. The wine was lost, perhaps more in the sauce? Maybe some red pepper flakes, too. And I might add some chunks of hot italian sausage mixed with the chicken pieces. Hubs said this was "not up to my standard", OUCH! But I sincerely thank you for sharing this recipe, I think it was just the wrong dish for our tastes.

Honey-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Such and simple and delicious dressing! I made exactly as written for a party sized salad, and still had a little left in the jar. Recieved a ton of compliments on the salad, and many mentioned the dressing, too. Thanks for sharing with AR! OH, BTW, here is the salad I used it on. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/parrothead-salad/Detail.aspx

Parrothead Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
I took this to a football party yesterday, devoured with many compliments! I was disappointed my store was out of mango, so I prepared with mandarin oranges as suggested by previous reviewers, and they worked beautifully (and easily!). I also subbed dried cherries for the raisins. I used "honey-balsamic" dressing, it was delicious on this. Thanks for sharing, this is a crowd pleaser and a keeper! http://allrecipes.com/recipe/honey-balsamic-vinaigrette/detail.aspx?

Sweet Potato Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
A wonderful lower fat and more nutritious chili recipe! Hubby and I loved this, would be great for a Halloween party, the colors and flavors are so seasonal. I took a little liberty with the cooking method...I used all ground turkey, browned with onion and added some garlic and cumin, s & p, and added to the crock. All of the other ingredients went in, and I used liberal amounts of most of the seasonings (except the cayene!). Cooked this in the crock on high 4 hours, turned down to low for an hour and a half or so. Perfect. Thanks for sharing your recipe, this is a keeper.

Creamy Mushroom Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
This stuff is just silly good, I could drink it as is! Made exactly as written with lots of black pepper added. Instead of meatloaf I just added a 2 lb bag of prepared frozen turkey meatballs and baked at 250* for a couple of hours until we were ready to eat. A great easy "semi-homemade" weeknight meal over buttered/parsley kluski noodles. Thanks for sharing, John, a winner and def do-over for sure.

Linguine Pescadoro

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Five stars on the base recipe, and five plus on the tweaks! I made as written but added some shallot, more red pepper flake, onion powder, and oregano. Skipped the whole clams and just used minced. I added a tablespoonof sugar to sweeten and cut the acidity, and a splash of heavy cream to blush. Lots of fresh basil too. Yummy, hubs had a record three servings!

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2012
What a wonderful, simple and delicious weeknight recipe! So seasonal, I used granny smith apples for a nice tart taste. I made exactly as written, just browned my chops in an oven safe saute pan, and removed and added the apple slices and spices, butter, then just placed them on top with the sherry and into the oven they went. Moist and tasty, plenty of pan juices. Oh, and I did add some dried cranberries to the mix. Hubs raved over this. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Update 10/22/12...Tonight I rubbed the pork chops with McCormic Jerk seasoning then browned, wow, adds wonderful flavor that compliments the brown sugar/cinnamon so well.

Restaurant-Style French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Recipe Group pick September 15, 2012: Loved this french onion soup recipe, hubby raved. It's a little heavy on prep and cooking time, a special occassion soup, but very worthy. I made as written with a little more sherry :). I did cheat on the topper, I made them separately under the broiler and just popped on top and served a couple on the side. Oh, and I did put a smear of pesto on the baguette slices then the cheese. Yummy, thanks for sharing your recipe with AR!
