Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I put WAY too much curry in (T instead of t) but this still tasted great! I ended up pureeing everything with my immersion blender after it cooked a while and THEN added *cooked* chicken cubes. I used brown rice I had cooked ahead of time. I added a handful of raisins for more sweetness (was worried about how a big granny smith would taste). My 18mo. old loved it. Next time, I may puree in some chopped spinach as well although I'm sure the soup will be a less attractive color.

Cheesy Turnips and Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
I needed a turnip recipe & this was very good. Next time I may replace the ginger with some dried mustard. I joined a CSA for healthy eating and here I go cooking the veggies in butter and cheese-- Next time I'll try to cut back on both. I liked the slight crunch of the celery.

Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Needed something to do with the Kale from my CSA that wasn't a soup. I've never had Kale before. This was very good. Next time I'll go lighter on the mustard. Once it cooks down, I'd say it's closer to enough for 2 large side portions vs the 6 mentioned in the recipe (like spinach, it really cooks down!). We'll make it again.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
I never have leftovers of this salad... that's amazing to me. We really enjoy it. Used toasted sesame seeds, almond accents, and skipped poppy seeds.

Jumbo Shrimp and Asparagus

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Excellent. Followed exactly, but added 1 clove of minced garlic during the last few seconds of frying the shrimp. Served over brown rice. My family does not like asparagus, but we decided to try this since the farm stand had asparagus. The sauce made it tasty. Even my 3.5yr old carnivore ate it (and asked for more shrimp)

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
I thought this would be great, but it was just ok. I think next time I will check on it more frequently.. it was overcooked. Didn't notice the baking mix.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Very good. Used 2 cans chiles. Used immersion blender after adding tomatoes. Added a rinsed can of black beans before the corn. Tasted good over lime tortilla chips with a dollop of sour cream and some cheese on top.

Pan Seared Red Snapper

Thanks for a great recipe. My husband went a little lighter on the lemon juice when he made it. I really liked it!

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2006
I sliced some chicken breasts into thin pieces (vs shredding). Used 99% fat free soup, reduced fat sour cream, and added most of a can of green enchilada sauce. Also used whole weat tortillas (husband didn't notice). I usually shy away from any recipes that call for condensed soups (for fear of gloppy messes) but this one was good-- next time I may increase the sour cream to soup ratio to get some more tang! Thanks for a new way to eat leftovers!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 22, 2005
Excellent. I melted some fresh mozarella on top and it was perfect. I used dried parsley and followed others in adding a splash of worcestershire sauce and used seasoned salt. I look forward to a leftover one for dinner tomorrow.

Abby's Chicken Rollatini

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2005
I've made this a few times and it's delicious! I make more sauce than the recipe calls for (and increase the wine to oil ratio) b/c it's really tasty. Also, I put in a fresh basil leaf in the chicken. When you're done, put the chicken on a bed of rice (boxed quick & easy rice of course) on a nice big serving tray and frame with some mircrowaved frozen broccolli florets and people think they're having a fancy meal that really was very easy.

Chocolate Cherry Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2005
This was really good considering how effortless it was! I like the frosting.. we used all of it and it wasn't too rich for us! Next time I may use a fudgier/darker cake mix, but it was good enough. Think I'm going to go home for lunch today and grab a piece!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
YUMMY! My husband and I loved it.. Made it for just us once and then made it for guests. We had a lot of extra chicken broth in the house so we actually poached the chicken and veggies in that instead of water. It's a good idea to hold off on adding the peas.. cook them until they're just cooked in the microwave and add them in to the mixture just before putting them in the crust. Keeps them less mushy. I brushed the bottom crust with egg white and prebaked a little bit (5 minutes or so) to avoid soggy-ness. I love garlic and minced up a clove to cook with the onions. Overall, looks like a lot of work, but goes very quickly and made for excellent comfort food.

Fresh Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
Ever hear of people taking seconds of SALAD at Easter dinner?! This was very tastey. It looks like a lot of work, but using precooked bacon from the store, some Easter eggs we already had, and baby spinach I didn't have to rip much, it was really fast. Plus, all the dressing ingreadients *just* fit in my minichopper (didn't need to lug out the big blender or food processor). We used extra light olive oil and skipped the water chesnuts. It makes a lot of dressing so we had some on some romaine the next day with lunch (of course with bacon and chopped up Easter eggs) and it was still really good.
