Winter Root Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
A local Irish restaurant in town serves root soup and I wanted to find the recipe. This is VERY close! It was delicious. The only thing I did different was I did add Garlic and I had some rutabaga that I added from our garden. Some are saying the texture was too 'baby food like'. That is exactly what root soup is! :) If you are adding more broth, then saying it is too bland - that is why. If you add too much broth you are watering down the taste of the veggies. I served this with some home made Irish Brown Bread. It was delicious!

Italian Bread II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
I made this for company and not a slice was left! My kids asked for it again the next morning, I didn't complain! It is so easy to make and so delicious! I changed nothing except I did not add the sesame seeds. I loved the cornmeal on the bottom.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
I followed this recipe exactly, with the exception of shredding the chicken instead of cubing it. Takes more time, but WAY worth the effort. Then when I tasted the chicken mixture, it tasted like chicken chilli to me. The Chilli powder was overpowering. I added some cumin and instantly, it tasted amazing! Next time I make this, I am going to omit the water completely. Made the mixture a little soupy.

Mom's Cucumbers

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
Exactly what I needed! I had everything on hand and I needed a last minute side dish for a picnic. Very yummy and light. I didn't understand why i would drain the cucumber juice only to add in water?? So I skipped the draining and skipped the water. Turned out great!

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Exactly what I was looking for. Tasted great! the only thing I did different was that I added about 4 cloves of garlic to the mushroom/onion when sauteing. This can easily be modified to be a bit more heart healthy by using ground turkey, omitting the butter and just using a tablespoon of healthy oil to cook the mushroom/onion/garlic and using a lite sour cream. YUM!!!

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
This was amazing. I got a ton of compliments on it! I love to make things that are gluten free due to family food allergies, and this was wonderful to make!! The only thing I did different was double the garlic, and I added half a medium onion. I will def. be making this again!!!!

Quick Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
Exactly what I was looking for. We had lots of leftover chicken from a bbq that I wanted to eat up so I made this sauce and threw in the chicken. I only had skim milk on hand, but it worked perfectly. I added exactly the 2 cups of skim milk. I also added a LOT more cheese, probably 3x the amount the recipe specifies, twice the garlic and garlic salt, and I put in a bit of pepper. So easy!!

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Not impressed. I have had brownies similar to these and I was disappointed that they didn't turn out like the ones I have had before. They were pretty blah. I will keep looking.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
I make these a LOT to bring to people's houses. The adults and the kids just EAT THEM UP!!! I cut the bacon into 3rds, and it is plenty long enough. I love these because I can cook them at home and then bring them in a little crock pot - they travel very well!!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Very good! I shredded the zucchini with my food processor, so there was no 'chunks' of zucchini. I forgot that I ran out of vanilla, so I actually used maple syrup instead - the real stuff. The kids wanted the chips stirred in and not on top, but other than that I followed the recipe to a T. Great way to use up some zucchini and satisfy my sweet tooth at the same time. :)

Cucumber Crunch Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
I made this as an alternative for the regular cucumber salad made with sour cream, as one of my guests has a dairy allergy. I was surprised at how much I liked it! A perfect lo cal / dairy free substitution to the regular cucumber salad! I too omitted the water - not sure why it is included and why so much. It was plenty liquid-y enough. I also used just 1 teas. of white sugar as I am allergic to artificial sweeteners. Thanks for the recipe!!

California Kabobs

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
These were AMAZING! I have a new favorite dish! I didn't have hot sauce, so I put in 1.2 tsp red pepper flakes. But they were pretty spicy and the kids didn't like it - I may try just omitting them next time. Also, I did not feel like the marinade was enough at all. I ended up tripling the recipe and that seemed perfect. Very yummy over rice! Thanks for another meal to add to my regulars!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
Heck yeah this is the World's Best Lasagna!! I made this for Christmas, I got SO MANY compliments!!! It is a bit of work, but if I am going to make Lasagna, I am going to make some lasagna - I don't want it to be something I 'whip up' in a few minutes. I made this 2 days ahead of time. Then I took it out of the fridge about an hour before cooking, and I cooked it about 10 minutes longer. IT WAS AWESOME!!

Easy Salsa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
It was just a normal Meatloaf recipe. I was expecting a bit more of a different taste from the Salsa, but it just tasted like plain old meatloaf. It wasn't bad - just ordinary.
