Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
this was easy and very good! i used an extra cup of potatoes, extra chicken broth, and used half milk and half broth to mix with the flour. also, i used about 4 slices of american cheese instead of shredded, and i added some leftover broccoli. it was a big hit with the kids! they said i should make it more often!

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
this is one of our new favorites. i usually skip the step of boiling and seasoning the potatoes, and they still turn out great. the roast is always tender and the seasoning is great. definitely a keeper.

Spicy Lemon Pork Saute

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
easy to make, and a nice change from my usual pork chop preparations. i thought the flavor was good: very flavorful, but not too spicy. husband, 9 year old, and 2 year old all ate it and enjoyed it!

Sausage, Zucchini and Two Pepper Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
this was really good! i was looking for a flavorful pasta and sausage dish without tomatoes, and this did the trick. i used red cooking wine because that was all i had, and only used about half of the chicken stock. even so, the "sauce" never thickened, but i didn't think it mattered. very good dinner!

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
the whole family loved this. it was super easy to make, too. i used an extra lean loin, but it was still pretty tender. i didn't use the celery because i don't like it, but i added a bay leaf. as others suggested, i seared the loins on both sides before putting them in the baking dish, and i used half beef broth and half red cooking wine, since that's what i had on hand. i wished i had added a little more broth after i added the gravy mix, because it was so thick it wouldn't pour nicely. the gravy had a good flavor, but even using low sodium gravy mix, i felt it was too salty. next time i'll use low sodium beef broth as well. overall, very yummy!

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
this gnocchi was really good. i didn't make the sauce; i just used jarred sauce to save some time and some dirty dishes. it took me a while to roll the gnocchi out, but it was my first time making them so i think with a little practice it won't take as long. my husband, who loves gnocchi, says it was perfect. my 8 year old and 16 month old couldn't get enough. the baby cried when it was gone. i recommend doubling the recipe, though, because even though i served it with italian sausage and sauce, there was barely enough for 2 adults, 1 kid, 1 baby, and 1 portion to save for my daughter's lunch tomorrow.

Chicken Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
my family liked this very much (baby, 8 year old, husband, and me). i used low sodium broth, and it still ended up having an excellent flavor; my husband went so far as to say the broth was perfect. i think the meatballs could use a little less pepper, but otherwise were very good. i would have liked to use parsnips, but i didn't have any; i did have sliced fresh mushrooms so i used those. i also added a little chopped spinach at the end to give it a little more color and to get some more veggies in. very good.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
this soup is excellent. kid, baby, and husband all love it. i use only 3 cups of broth, and i add a tablespoon or so of flour when i add the chili powder and cumin to help thicken it a little. i also add a little extra chili powder and cumin. this gives it just enough flavor for my family, but if you want it spicy, you'll definitely need to add more. i serve it with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of shredded cheese.

Chicken and Herbs

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009

Hot Dogs 'n' Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
this was just okay. it's definitely good that the ingredients are ones i typically have on hand; however, i think the ketchup was too sweet, and overall the dish didn't have enough flavor. i added a little salt and pepper, but it would be better if you added some more spices and/or maybe beef broth. it could be a good starter recipe though, and i may try it again with some additions.

Zucchini Tomato Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
my 8 year old daughter said i should give this "as many stars as you can!" she loved it so much she wants it for lunch tomorrow too. also, i put a little bit in my food grinder and fed it to my 12 month old, who loved it as well. i had to make some substitutions according to what i had on hand: i used a large can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh (i only did 1/3 of the recipe); i used a couple teaspoons of beef bouillon instead of the soup mix (i think the soup mix would make it too salty anyway); i used one zucchini and one yellow squash; i used minced garlic instead of powder; i used frozen chopped green peppers. we topped it with a little shredded cheddar. it turned out delish and it was quick and easy to make. a keeper for me!

Chicken and Summer Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
i like this recipe a lot and i make it often. it's easy to alter according to what you have on hand. i've made it with fresh tomatoes and canned, and they are both good, but the fresh is best. sometimes i throw in some fresh mushrooms, and if i only have squash or zucchini but not both, it still turns out fine. also, i use paula deen's seasoning on the chicken when i brown it instead of just salt and pepper. i don't think it is bland at all. i don't let all the juice cook off and i serve with orzo or rice. it's a good, healthy meal.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
my seven year old loves this soup! she always cleans her bowl when i serve it. she told me she would give it googolplex stars. my husband only gives it 3, because he doesn't like lentils so much. i say it's delicious, healthy, and easy to make. definite keeper.

Famous Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
the whole family loved these--everyone gave them 5 stars. by the end of dinner, my husband and daughter were stealing the few bites i had not yet finished right off my plate! i did go by other reviews and used 1/2 the butter, seasoned the chops before coating (salt, pepper, sage), and uncovered for the last 10 minutes or so. i think the chops would have been soggy if i hadn't uncovered; as it was, they were perfect. also, i used whole wheat ritz crackers. thanks!

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
i liked the ease of preparation, and the chops turned out tender and juicy, but the flavor was just not quite to my taste. i, my husband and our 7-year-old agreed that it was okay, but we would prefer a little different flavor. i think i'll try this again and experiment with the spices.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
yes, this cake was delicious. i made it for my husband's birthday and everyone loved it. i don't usually like carrot cake at all, but i liked this. i used these suggestions from other reviews: half white, half brown sugar; 3/4 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce instead of full amount of oil; only about 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar in the frosting. i had lots of frosting left over, but my husband says i didn't put enough on the cake and has been putting the extra on each individual piece he eats! this recipe does have a lot of nuts, so if you aren't a big fan of them, you should probably cut back on the pecans in the cake and the frosting. i really liked them, though. thanks a bunch for this recipe!

Hamburger Goulash

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
we liked this fairly well--7-year-old said it was delicious, husband said it was bland, i say it was super easy to make with ingredients i had on hand and tasted pretty good to boot. not a particularly exciting or fancy dish, but a good weeknight meal. leftovers will go well in a thermos for 7-year-old's lunch tomorrow. i used veggie crumbles instead of ground beef and added beef bouillon powder and extra water, but otherwise followed the recipe. i sprinkled some shredded cheddar on before serving.
