Pesto-Stuffed Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
This was a big hit at dinner. My husband and I really enjoyed it. Firstly I doubled the recipe for 4 boneless pork chops. I stuffed the chops with pesto and applied the rub about 2 hours prior to browning/baking. This may have added marinated flavor inside and out. I used a large cast-iron pan to cook the onions and then hot-seared the stuffed boneless chops for 1 min/side. I did find when putting the pan into the oven that it smoked up--I just added 1/2 cup of water. The water made a nice little sauce to go w/ the onions and pork chops. 20 minutes is all it took to bake. I chose not to add the extra pesto over the top at the end. Watch out for the toothpick when serving. Some recipe I read suggested using raw spaghetti to secure pockets. Maybe worth a try. This is company quality!

Penne Pasta with Veggies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
The picture looked so good we had to try it. I was concerned that since it didn't have a sauce it would be dry but it was light and full of flavor. I used diced salami since proscuitto tends to be pricey. It worked great... I used one jar of sun-dried tomatoes with the oil. Also instead of a bell pepper I used jarred roasted red pepper (added to the salami and sundried tomatoes). It was a pretty dish coming out of the oven.

This was a very simple meal that was well enjoyed. I shall make the orginal someday soon but varied it by what I had on hand. I used hogie rolls with the top sheared off; 1 pregrilled sliced chicken breast; sauteed onions and green pepper; pesto; feta cheese--grilled. Simple and yummy.

Danish Almond Puff

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2005
Wow...did this recipe bring back very fond memories! Although my mom made it for me as a child, I have never made it myself. It was very easy and was quite a hit with my Progressive Dinner group. Make this one and you will have raves at your next brunch!

Pesto Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
I always want to try a good turkey burger recipe. This one is pretty good. It has great flavor and the bread crumbs help to hold it together yet remain juicy. I did not add any of the salt as I felt that was way too much. I used only 1/4 c. of seasoned bread crumbs. Grilled with a little mayo, lettuce and tomato....it was yummy.

Chicken Enchilada Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
This soup had a lot of great flavor but I think I would use less corn tortillas next time as it was very thick. I did have to add a little extra milk.

BBQ Feta and Hot Banana Pepper Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
This has become one of our favorite turkey burgers. I only gave it 4 stars because I have altered it some to our likings. I make them with 1 lb gr turkey, 1-2 chopped pepperoncini, 5-6 small roasted peppers (chopped), 1/2 lb feta crumbled, 7-8 chopped calamata olives. When grilling, make a well in center of burgers. Spray grill w/ olive oil before placing burgers on .

Cottoneyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I made this for our New Year's party. It was so easy and really tasty! I sauteed the onion, celery and garlic in the bacon fat after cooking the bacon. I could not find jalapeno black eye peas so used three cans of seasoned peas and added 1 1/2 t. chopped jalapenos. I will definately make this again.

Pineapple-Lime Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
Great flavors...I used white rice but the liquid was not enough to cook the rice. I questioned the amount b/c the box calls for double the liquid to the amt of rice. I had to add mor as it cooked. Will try it again though!

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This wasn't bad but couldn't give it rave reviews. The chicken was very tender, though. I didn't taste much lime. It was more of a sweet barbecue taste.

Pork with Peach and Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
The pork was unbelievably tender. I used a Boneless Sirloin Roast. I don't know if browning it with the corn meal was the secret. The cornmeal stuck to the cubed pork so well. I did have to use 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil vs the recipe's 1 Tablespoon. This meal was as pretty as it was tasty, and it was equally as good the next night for leftovers. I have made this several times. We really enjoy it.

Mom's Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Just made this today. I used 1 lb of ground turkey, 3/4 c of fresh bread crumbs, 1/8 c of oats and corn meal. The rest remained the same. The BBQ sauce and the liquid smoke was a nice touch. After reading that the posters thought it was very moist and hard to get out of pan--I lined the loaf pan w/ sprayed foil which made lifting it out of the pan very easy. My husband likes brown gravy w/ his meatloaf so I served it w/ one of those envelop gravy packets. We really liked it and being turkey--it was healthier.

Clams Italiano

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
It was good but why o why would you add that much red pepper flakes? I only put 1/2 t., and it was still too hot. I used mussels and shrimp and served over thin spaghetti.

Pepperoncini Beef

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
A very tasty sandwich for sure. I used posters' suggestions for 1 bottle of beer, 2 beef boullion, 1 pkg dry italian dressing,and 1 1/2 onion sliced. With only jarred chopped garlic on hand, I made lots of slits and pushed in the chopped garlic. I was a chicken and used only 8 oz of pepperoncini, sliced. I think I could go with more next time. It took a long time to cook so it would break down. Plan on at least 8-10 hours. Once it is shredded, put back into the pot and stir it around in the juices. Simmer for another 1/2 hour or so. It was so juicy. Add some provolone!! Yum!

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
One poster suggested adding 2 cans of Rotel Tomatoes---yikes that made it so spicy we could hardly eat it. I will definately make it again but still stick to the original recipe with only regular canned tomatoes.

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
First time to make biscotti. This is a real tasty and easy recipe. The pistachio with cranberry are so good together. Make it for yourself or for gifts. It ships well, too.

Pumpkin Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I had a cup of pumpkin puree left over from making my pumpkin pie which was perfect to make this recipe. I added ground cloves, nutmeg, walnuts and raisins. Using a small 'ice cream scoop' was so easy to spoon on small teaspoon-size cookie dough on to the baking pans. It made approximately 4-5 dozen little soft cookies. I sprinkled granulated sugar on top of each just before baking. Yum!
