Hamburger Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
This recipe was the bomb! My husband and I just loved it. The only thing I did different was I used ground turkey and a larger can of diced tomatoes instead of the smaller can of crushed. Also, to make it a bit healthier I used only half of the amount of butter and flour. The soup was still very flavorful but with half the calories and fat. Thanks Sandra for for giving my family such a superb recipe!

Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
This is a really great recipe for when I am wanting chicken salad fast. Also, I make many substitutions and yet it still turns out excellent! Today, instead of the grapes, I added diced strawberries, and chopped dates instead of the cranberries/raisins. Also, used Vegenaise instead of Mayo. This is an awesome and simple recipe!

Pistachio Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I was really surprised with how great this chicken tasted. I did reduce the bread crumbs to 1/4 a cup and am glad because I think 1/2 would have tasted a little to breaded.

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Wow! This was absolutely devine. I had this strange craving for butternut squash soup and initially couldn't decide which recipe on here to try. I chose this one because I like cinnamon and I happened to have apple chips already on hand for the garnish. I followed the instructions exactly as written except I roasted the squash for 45 minutes as some of the other reviewers had done. I was happy that it made so much soup and thought I could reheat this for the next few days until my husband came home and ate 6 of the 8 servings. The next day for breakfast, he consumed the last remaning serving! Be sure to add the apple chips as garnish because it was excellent with the soup.

Tuna Noodle Casserole III

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I'm going to have to say this is my new top recipe for something to make for dinner really fast without having to go to the grocery store to buy ingredients! My husband really liked this and thought I had spent a lot of time in the kitchen making it. I ended up using 1 1/2 cans of tuna, 1/2 cup milk as other reviewers had mentioned and added grated parmesean cheese to make it look(and taste) better. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
This was awesome although I didn't follow the instructions completely. First, I used the broccoli in the bag (broccoli wokly)and microwaved according to instructions on the bag, roasted some garlic in the oven, then mixed the minced garlic with the rest of the ingredients. Also, I added a splash of balsalmic vinegar. I threw it all together and had a side dish in under 5 minutes!! This really tasted great and was low-fat to boot. Thanks Domenick

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I was happy with the way the base and soup turned out. My husband has a cold and requested chicken noodle soup. Instead of Campbells like I normally do in these situations, I decided to surprise him. Growing up in a family of Vegetarians, it kinda grossed me out to have to take the meat off a chicken and throw the bones and skin in with the chicken broth, but ultimately it was worth the dirty dead. I did not add the peas because it didn't sound good to me, and used only one onion instead of two as another reader suggested. Also, I added two cups more water as the soup tasted a little concentrated. This was excellent!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
I love, love, love, love this recipe for banana bread! I cannot count the number of times family, friends and co-workers have asked me for this recipe and I have guided them to this site. The only thing different from the recipe is I substitute 1 teaspoon of white vinegar with 1/3 cup of milk for five minutes (as suggested by another reviewer) for the buttermilk.

Apple Tuna Sandwiches

Okay. I just loved this! Every once in a while I crave tuna sandwiches and this recipe with the chopped apple and the nuts was exactly what I needed. I used slivered almonds instead of the walnuts and it was fantastic.

New Year's Day Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
Okay, this was just fantastic and was a huge hit by my family and relatives. I made just a few changes. First, I added two cups of cooked chicken and spinach sausage to make it with less fat. Then, I used two vegetable broth cubes. I will most likely make this again because this recipe was simply wonderful!!

Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Wow! This was out of this world delicious!!! I have been making more vegan dishes for health reasons and thought I would try this one out. I cooked the recipe exactly as written and it turned out fantastic. It was so good my husband asked me if I had in fact thrown ground beef in it. The next day he had two more servings for breakfast!! Thanks Laura for submitting such a great recipe!!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
These sloppy joes were pretty tasty! I noticed some of the reviewers saying the mixture was too runny so I just cooked the liquid down a bit and they were perfect. Next time I make these though, I might reduce the brown sugar a bit because it seemed a little sweet. But, otherwise these were great and I will keep this recipe for future use.

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
This recipie is wonderful! I made this for an appitizer last Thanksgiving and everyone wants me to make this again for the hollidays. The only thing I do differently is I add parmesean cheese instead of the Romano simply because I usually have parmesean on hand. This is so awesome with tostitos!
