Zucchini Orzo

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
This was really nice, but light on flavor like many said. I started out by following the recipe exactly but then added 1tbsp worcestershire sauce to add flavor. I didn't love that with this so I will try another flavor boosting idea next time. Oh and I added minced garlic. I had mine with season salted added, DH added parmesan cheese to his. We'll try it again though - we didn't hate it, just needs a boost.

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I love this soup and will make it again - DH thought it was just ok but he hates lentils :) I meant to cook the lentils separately and blend them but I added them in the regular pan so after an hour I blended everything lol so that made it weird to him - I'll do the lentils separate next time, blend then add to the soup. I followed the recipe very close, used half sweet & half hot sausage (I usually do that) and just used 8c water w/3tbsp powdered chicken broth, there was plenty of liquid. That's the only change - except for using WW orzo for the pasta but that didn't change the flavor.

Yum! And very easy! I only made one small change, I added garlic. I have had this saved for ages and I'm really glad I finally made it!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
This really was very good and easy. DH & I thought the sauce was a bit too sweet so we'll try it with half the honey next time. I also eliminated the dried red pepper flakes because SS doesn't like things too spicy and it's a good thing because even with using half the cayenne it was just right for spicyness :) I doubled it to use with "Quick and Easy Pizza Crust" from this site, but it would have been fine to make as written for that crust. We'll have this often!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
Excellent! I never made my own pizza dough before. I only made one change, I used 1c ww flour in place of one of the cups of bread flour. DH still got a slightly high blood sugar reading that night (we usually try to avoid white flour but I didn't want to change this too much) but we were all very pleased with this recipe. I always have a hard time stretching pizza dough and this one was tough too but it did work :)

Enchilada Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
Excellent! We all loved these, my sons especially. I made my own cornbread and enchilada sauce and used 10oz of that rather than using any tomato sauce. I also used a ground beef & ground pork mix - oh and i sauteed a half onion diced and mixed that in too. We will definitely have these often!

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
This was fantastic, I'll make this regularly! I did follow the advise from the review from mbphilli which was to use paste instead of tomato sauce, to use chicken broth instead of water, to blend the salsa with my immersable blender, and to double the chili powder. I will follow all these suggestions next time too. they also suggested to cook for several hours but I wasn't able to take that much time so I did let it simmer 1 hour instead - it really came out fantastic!

Monterey Spaghetti

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
We tried this over the weekend, but I used 1lb of spaghetti (whole wheat) and baked it. It was a tiny bit dry but we loved the flavor and we would definitely make this again! I think a couple of chicken breasts cubed and lightly browned then added to this would be fantastic and would make it a complete meal.

Italian Meatball and Cheese Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
I loved this, DH & DS really liked but didn't love as much as I did but they wouldn't mind having it again - which is good because I definitely want to have it again! Followed recipe exactly - except for using frozen tortellini. It was pretty easy too - good choice for a work night :)

Chili Dog Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
This was excellent - a huge hit with everyone! I followed the recipe closely, but the actual items you use can affect the flavor. We use Hebrew National hot dogs, the 97% fat free, and the spicy beanless chili by Hormel (DH will not eat beans), oh and two cans of it. For the buns I tried making my own using the Buttermilk Wheat Bread recipe that I make hamburger rolls from - they were a bit dense this time but that actually worked perfectly in this, they didn't get soggy and the bottoms got a little crispy which I really liked. For the cheese - although I love cheddar, I had some Montery Jack to use up so I used half that and half sharp cheddar. I did add the onion & mustard too, that's how I like my chili dogs anyway :) Everyone really loved this and we'll have this again!

Popovers for Two

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
YUM I loved these, and to my surprise so did DH - I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose but that's the only change - definitely having these again!

Grandma's Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
These were very good, I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose but that's the only change. I thought when I was rolling out the dough that I had it really thin but when it came time too cook them it was clear that they could have been thinner - but it's well worth trying these again - practice makes perfect lol

BBQ Chicken Calzones

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
These were excellent - I followed the recipe closely, using crescent rolls for the dough. it was a little tough getting the dough rolled out and sealed after filling them but it did work out - i worried they would be too flimsy after they cooked but they worked out great and had good flavor. The guys really liked them, we'll have these again!

Simmered Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
This was really good & tender & easy! The only change was slight, I used 1c of broth because some had commented that there was some loss of liquid - but we probably would have been alright with the 1/2c. That or we'll use more steak next time :)

Danish Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Yum! So good - I wanted a recipe to use a hambone but didn't include beans or peas so this worked out great. I followed the recipe nearly exactly - I did use whole wheat flour but other than that was just as written. Everyone loved it and my place smelled so great - we'll have this again!

Cheese Souffles

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Yum! I was nervous to try this, but I like to try new things - I was so pleased with how well they came out and DH & I really loved them (DS not so much). I followed the recipe exactly, except I only had smaller ramekins but they worked out well. Oh, sorry, I used whole wheat flour so I guess it wasn't exact but very close :) We'll have this again.

Breakfast Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
This was alright, I thought I'd like it a lot more. The potato flavor seemed to take over the flavor of the dish but it's not bad, just not what I expected. I followed the recipe exactly too except for using a square pan vs a round one - that shouldn't impact the flavor though :)

Ham & Peppers Penne Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
This was so good! We all really liked this and we'll have it again. I followed the recipe exactly except for using rotini instead of penne, although I'm sure penne would be great too. We used whole wheat rotini and whole wheat flour. The 'sauce' is thick and at first we thought it would be too thick but the vegetables and ham add liquid as they cook so it came out fantastic - no changes needed! Thanks Carrie for sharing this recipe :)
