Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
This was 'oh my goodness' good! I was unsure if the recipe meant 3 onions, so only used one fairly large one. It did cook down a lot w/the carmelization process, but still tasted oniony enough. I used 1 cup brown rice, 1/2 cup wild. To make up for the difference in cooking times of the 2 rices, I put the wild rice in a pot w/a can of chix broth. after 15 minutes, added the brown and let them finish off together. The savory/fruit flavor really complemented our meal!

Rhubarb Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
YUM! Easy to make. The only thing I did different, I put in 1 cup sugar instead of 1 1/2, seemed sweet enough for us! Also, I used a frozen deep dish crust, filled it w/the sliced rhubarb. It did not take 4 full cups. I ended up baking it about 15 minutes longer, seemed too wiggly at time. Family and guests ate it up!

Romantic Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
This is a super recipe, we make chicken picatta using lemon juice, capers and white wine. The artichokes keep the flavor tangy as a picatta should be, but adds another dimension. A true picatta is a little tangy, so be forewarned!

Russell's Fish Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2006
I was hugry for something a little mexican tasting, so used the zesty mexican tomatoes and substituted diced bell pepper for carrots. I always use less oil, sprayed w/olive oil pam and about 1 tb oil. left out the crushed red peppers r/t the spicy tomatoes. My husband never moaned so much during a meal! It was very good, a hint of heat. Could add more at the table if you wanted. The broth was phenomenal! Served w/brown rice to add to the bowl.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: May 2, 2005
VERY GOOD and easy ! I too 'healthied' this dish, used a little olive oil instead of butter, used evap skim milk instead of cream, only 1 C cheese on top. Kept the bacon for flavor [1/3c] Iused a bag of baby spinach, microwaved a little and used 8 oz sliced mushrooms... not enough spinach! it disappeared. The sauce was almost too italian spiced, but I used the Emeril brand of Italian spice, maybe 1 TB of another brand would not be so powerful. Did not precook chicken, just cooked covered 30 min then uncovered and added cheese. A winner w/my husband!

Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
I loved this, too many picky eaters at the party I brought it too. The ones who ate it thought it was great! Even better later when I mixed it with greens and had a large salad. The last of the leftovers were heated up and served as a side dish w/pork chops

Sweet Pea Mockamole

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
Those at the party who don't like guacamole would not try it, those who do were very impressed with the flavor! they all said it tasted a little different, sweeter, and the texture was different in the mouth, but all agreed it was a great low fat alternative! Several asked for the recipe!

Marinated Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
I had a hard time visualizing the recipe, the comment about changing dishs. I put it in the dish I wanted to serve it first, good thing, the cream cheese is too soft to handle very much. Served it as a party appetizer, many teens, the adults tried it, about half LOVED it and wanted the recipe, the others could take it or leave it. My husband thinks the leftovers would be good in a salad w/the sauce as dressing. I'll try again at Easter, using something else besides cream chees.

Cabbage and Pasta

Reviewed: May 25, 2004
This is an old slovak recipe called 'Haluski' Grandma passed down the love of it. It is not spicy, most slovak food is not, but it is full of flavor. We 'cheat' and add sliced polish sausage to it to make a whole meal, YUM

Carol's Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2003
After reading the reviews and a few other white chili recipes, I chose this one, cut up the chix, added more spices as it cooked and I tasted. It was very good and even better the next day. Had the green chili flavor, which is more delicate than red chili. There is a difference in flavor to excpect when focusing on green peppers. will definately make again!

Chile Verde II

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2003
Excellent! I scaled for 6 so as I rounded proportions it probably came out different, used 4 cloves of garlic and 3 cups broth, still a little too soupy, thickening w/corn meal would work. Rice helped absorb juice. Needed more heat, but easier to add at table than overdo for other's taste. Rich pepper flavor!

Limeade Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2003
My family thought this was much too strongly flavored. We added another whipped topping on top and it was ok. If I did it again, I would add 2 containers of whipped topping and make 2 pies, would have a lime-chiffon type flavor then.

Baked Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2003
After reading all the reviews, it became apparent the recipe writer meant to use minute rice,not long cooking rice. Adjusting the water for regular rice and covering it makes a world of difference. Tasty enough for you to try, just alter the water depending on if you have quick rice or regular rice

German Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2002
I make a recipe similar to this but use Swiss cheese to go with an almost ruben flavor. My family loves it! We call it ruben lasagna. Drain the kraut well and enjoy! you can use 1/2 lb of sausage and 1 can of soup and make a smaller pan-ful pretty easily. [I usually use lite sausage and soup to cut down on some fat]

Baked Shells in Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2002
I used spaghetti sauce instead of plain tomato sauce and added some sliced black olives I had left over.... Still needed something, not bad, but lacked interest.
