No Beans About It - Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Great recipe we really loved it. Although I really love chili I have never managed to make one that I like. That is until now. Even better my son liked it and didn't once complain it was to spicy. I love spice and have a hard time figuring out what is not spicy for him. I forgot to add the hot sauce to the chili and it was just right for my children. I can always add some to my own bowl. We do like beans in our chili. I ran out of time to put some beans on to cook and didn't have time to run to the store for some canned beans. So this was perfect for us. The only problem was it didn't make very big serving sizes. Next time I will have to double or triple the recipe so we have enough and maybe enough to take to work the next day. Wonderful recipe. Thank you!!!

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I hate giving a bad review so I am really happy to say this is a great recipe. I used turkey sausage and left out the onion. My husband is allergic to pork and onions. Other than that I made very little changes. I used crushed tomatoes and after letting it simmer on low for 3 hours I had to add more water. My husband didn't think he would like it but he wound up loving it. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I gave it five stars. But then I have been making my stew like this for years. Only difference is I use beef broth and not bullion. My husband is allergic to the MSG in bullion. I also use corn instead of onions and celery. My husband is allergic to onions and doesn't like celery. I usually don't use rosemary but since the recipe added it I figured I would try it out. It was good. I crush the rosemary before using it. We like it better that way. I also added more cornstarch as I like a little thicker stew. I would add this to my recipe box but since I already make it like this I don't see a reason to. Thank you

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
We absolutely loved it. We used whole wheat noodles to add nutritonal value to our noodles. We also added flour to the sauce to thicken it up a little and of course we added a little sherry to the sauce. We will definitely be making it again.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
It wasn't as good as I expected considering the ratings. I don't hold personal preferences against a recipe but with this either the amount was a typo or this person has a SERIOUS sweet tooth. It was far to sweet even after I cut the sugar down to 2 cups. A recipe should be able to stand on its own with out changes. This one could not. I made it again and this time I used only 1 1/2 cups of sugar. It was MUCH better. Next time I make it I plan on cutting the sugar down to 1 1/4 cups so only half the sugar the recipe calls for. This from someone who likes sweet bread. It makes me wonder if the recipe was supposed to say 1 1/4 cup sugar instead of 2 1/2 cup sugar.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I've made this severl times now. It is one of the best tortellini soups I've had. I am now getting ready to make it again. This time I am going to use whole wheat tortellini for more fiber to make a soup that keeps you full longer. I have used frozen and dried tortellini both have turned out great. I use turkey sausage and leave out the onion because my husband is allergic to these. As a result the soup is lower in fat. Thank you for a great recipe.

Pumpkin Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
I loved the stew. I added 1/2 cup of wine to the stew. I also used beef broth instead of the water and bouillion cubes. Instead of the celery and onions I added green beans. I used a different pumpkin I used the one called peanut pumpkin. I also thickened it with flour. It turned out wonderful. Thank you.

Chicken Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
Great recipe. I did have to do some changes. I didn't have any milk so I used whipping cream. I made my own chicken soup. I skipped the onions because my husband is allergic to them. Unfortunately we didn't have any cheese. I also didn't have any bread crumbs. It tasted great without the cheese and bread crumbs. But next time I think it would taste even better with it.

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
Wonderful, fast, easy recipe. Although I did swapp out the veggies for ones I had on hand and used ground turkey. Instead of diced potatoes I used whole new potatoes. They were small enough I didn't have to dice or peel them saving me a lot of work. The better grocery stores sell them already washed so they are a quick and easy addition to a meal.Next time I would like to try thickening it with potato flakes like a previous reviewer did. I just didn't have any on hand and didn't have time to go to the store. Thank you for a different and tasty recipe that is easily adjusted to different dietary needs and likes.

Original Nestle® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Thank you for a wonderful cookie recipe. I substituted reeses pieces for the chocolate chips because my husband is allergic to chocolate. He loved them and asked for more. To prevent them from spreading to much I let them firm up in the refrigerater and then put them directly into the oven. I made them again after reading something on line. They turned out even better than before. All my chocolate chip cookies were spreading to much. Now I don't cream the butter so much and also refrigerate the dough. My cookies finally came out just like they should and not flat.

Hot Apple Cider

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
A great recipe. I leave out the maple syrup and the orange and lemon peels. My son thought it had sweetening in it when he drank it. I can't imagine how sweet it must be with the syrup. But all of the recipes I have found so far have sweetening of one kind or another. Thank you for a wonderful fall favorite in my family. It goes well with pumpkin pie.

Fluffy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
The family loved the casserole. We did leave out the onions because of allergys. To make it a main dish meal for eight(I always make enough for leftovers to take to work) I quadrupled the recipe and when I put it into the casserole dish I first layered four cups of leftover turkey and 2 pounds of aldis frozen green beans then I spread the potato mix over everything. This made the green beans particulary good I thought. My children loved it although my husband said it had to much cream cheese.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I loved the chili. I especially like that I can use frozen pureed pumpkin. The pureed pumpkin made the chili very thick which I really like. I left out the onions and peppers my husband is allergic to onions and doesn't like peppers. I then added an equal amount of corn instead. I also added 1tsp of cumin and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. I don't know if canned pumpkin has salt added to it but since I do know the pumpkin I cut up and cooked down doesn't have any salt I chose to add salt to the chili. I didn't measure the pumpkin I used. I just cut up enough pumpkin to fill up the pot I was using and then cooked it down untill it was to the desired consistency. This way I just used one pot for the whole process. I also used leftover turkey instead of the ground turkey. Thank you for a wonderful recipe I will use many times.

Real Homemade Tamales

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Thank you I have been searching for the recipe for the masa for tamales on the internet. I used to make them to sell. But it has been a while and couldn't remember if I used 1/3c of lard or 2/3. By the way I always tripled the amount of salt in the masa. All of my customers said it was better that way.

Poblano Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
It was easy to make. My children loved it and asked me to make it again. I substituted more poblanos for the jalapenos. They are much less spicey. I also skipped the butter in the sauce and whisked the flour into the half and half before heating it. I used precooked chicken instead of the chicken breasts. As for the salt, I salted and peppered the white sauce to taste before layering the casserole. Next time I'm going to make extra sauce so I can add a melting cheese to the extra and serve it over chicken breasts. Thank you

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
Wonderful potato soup. I haven't eaten it yet, because I'm waiting for the bread to finnish baking. But I have tasted the soup. It's even better than the potato soup I've been making. I did have to make some changes due to allergies. I subbed turkey bacon for the pork bacon. Since turkey bacon doesn't have enough fat I just tossed the bacon into the soup at the beginning. This way I could still get some of the flavor in the soup. I also didn't bake the potatoes I just diced them and put them in when I boiled the broth. I also mixed the milk with the flour before adding to the soup. When the soup thickened I then added the cream to the soup. My version of half and half. Thank you

German Sauerkraut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Not a wow but still very good. I had to make some changes due to allergies. I didn't use onions and had to sub beef sausage for the ham. I also used chicken broth for some of the water. Because I didn't have the ham I didn't cook for the extended time so I used less added liquid. Thank you
