Yummy Roll Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
I do something similar. I use tender young asparagus or green onions and roll around them. I also do this with turkey slices and smoked salmon.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
The Italian grandmother of an old friend used to make a soup like this, but sh used escarole instead of the spinach. She also beat an raw egg into it. Delicioso!

Garbanzo Tomato Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
As any Italian household (and those who are friends of Italians) will tell you, this is a popular meatless meal called pasta fagioli -- aka pasta fazool. Easy to make, very tasty!

New York Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
This is very similar to the cheesecake recipe I received from a friend in 1981, written on the back on an envelope! Th only thing I do differently -- and not instructed by my friend -- is to separate the eggs and beat the whites until stiff. The yolks go in with the rest of the filling. I then fold the whites in until incorporated. A very light and fluffy cheesecake!

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
Try adding some raisins to the apple mixture. After baking, dust some powdered sugar over the top of the pie. :-)

Cream Peas

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This is just like the creamed peas and carrots my family has always served with turkey dinners on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other occasions. I like the idea someone had about using pearl onions, too!

Homefried Potatoes with Garlic and Bacon

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I use leftover, cold baked potatoes that I then chop up. And always in the bacon grease! Yum!

Frank's Famous Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Very similar to my own sauce, but I use 1 can tomato sauce, 1 can tomato puree, 1 can chopped tomatoes, and 1 can tomato paste. I use a bit more oregano, too, as well as garlic. I then let the sauce come to a mild boil, then reduce the heat to just a simmer and cook it all day.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Roasted vegetables is such an easy thing to do. I am surprised by some of the comments about never having experienced, much less made something like this. Granted, I hadn't either, until I went to live in England throughout much of the 1990's. Roasted vegetables is such a standard part of -- at the very least -- Sunday Lunch. The oven is going, cooking the roast (whatever kind you enjoy), so it is easy enough to add a pan of vegetables to the oven, too. Roasted carrots, parsnips, along with the potatoes is great. :-)

Creamy Chicken Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
This is soooo like my "doctored up" ramen chicken noodle soup. I like one person's idea of adding coconut milk. And instead of red pepper flakes, I like to use Cholula hot sauce: just the right level of hotness for my constitution! Other than the above, I add: leftover chicken or pork or shrimp; leftover or freshly chopped vegetable; lime juice and fish sauce, if I want some pad thai flavor; and anything else that might be lying around. :-) As you might guess, I'm a "fly by the seat of my pants" type of cook! LOL

Yummy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I've been doing something like this for over 40 years. I slice some potatoes and onions, layering them in a casserole. I then lay the pork chops on top and pour Italian dressing over it all. I then bake, covered, at 350 for about an hour. So simple and comes out delicious!

Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
As some of the other posters suggested, I kick up a notch the flavors of what is both inside and on the outside of the enchiladas. I serve with sour cream, guacamole, shredded lettuce and tomato slices.

Pork Chops to Live For

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I've been making something like this for years. As I can't tolerate the smell/taste of mushroom soup, I use cream of onion soup, plus use some white wine in in lieu of some of the liquid. I do the same with chicken, too. Yummy!

Home-Style Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
A good beginning to how I make vegetable beef soup. I use stew beef, add garlic, add barley, use chopped tomatoes instead of juice, and more water.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I do a similar recipe that others have mentioned, using lemons. I squeeze the lemon halves over the bird, then stuff the squeezed lemons inside. I also add a couple of lemon slices under the skin. Yummy! Everyone .loves it.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This looks great! I can see making it into little "tuna balls" and serving at a cocktail party with toothpicks and sauces.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
I do something similar, but using the low carb wraps. Delicious and not too hard on the carbs that regular flour tortillas can deliver. I'm diabetic and those flour tortillas can really spike my BG's.

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This is very much like a soup I make for myself. I got the idea of adding peanut butter to chicken soup, because as a child I loved dunking peanut butter sandwiches into my soup. I even do the same with my "doctored up" chicken ramen, adding vegetables, any meat or shrimp that needs to be used up, some fresh bean sprouts, and a few good dashes of a hot sauce. If I'm feeling in a Thai mood, I'll add some fresh lime juice, too! Just some thoughts for everyone who likes to "wing it" with recipes.
