Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
This is a good soup. I had absolutely no idea how to cook the roast, since I rarely cook beef. I put it in the crock pot, covered it with water, and cooked it for about 5 hours adding the barley in the last 45 minutes or so. The meat came out extremely tender and pretty much fell apart. The only hard part was getting the barley out of the water I cooked the roast in. I omitted the celery, as I don't care for it. I accidentally got pureed tomatoes instead of stewed, and I don't think it made a big difference. I also added a packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix for extra flavor. This soup froze and reheated well.

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
Very tasty! Instead of pounding the breast thin, I just cut a pocket (basically butterflied) the chicken breasts, then filled with sliced ham and cheese before closing up. I also dipped the stuffed chicken in egg before breading it. Very easy, very quick, and very good. Thanks!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
I loved this soup. My SO said it tasted like liquified manicotti, but still ate two bowls. :-) I added somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon of sugar to the tomatoes while they cooked. It was very easy to make and tasted like it was from a fancy restaurant.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
This soup is an easy and tasty way to get your daily dose of veggies. I used tri-colored cheese tortellini instead of seashell pasta. Very tasty! Thanks!

Wisconsin Cheese Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
This soup is OK, but it's basically broccoli cheese soup. I like that it uses real cheese instead of Velveeta. I'd rather have had smaller pieces of broccoli and carrot, so if I make it again, I'll use matchstick cut carrots and chop the broccoli. This did NOT freeze well.

Broiled Sweet and Tangy Tilapia

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2005
This was ok. I don't really like fish of any type, but this one was ok. I might make it again.

Viva Madrid Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
I *heart* this recipe. I've made it several times, and shared the recipe with my family. I even made it as a big sit-down dinner on our family ski vacation last year and not a drop of anything was left. I made "Spanish Rice II" from this website to accompany it. It also freezes and reheats well.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
I've made this recipe twice. The first time, I added garlic and cumin and used chicken broth in place of the water. The second time, I made it for a vegetarian/vegan, so I had to replace the chicken broth in my original modifications with vegetable broth. Worked well both times.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
This recipe is pretty good. I didn't mash the carrots. I diced them in the food processor and added them to the ground beef/onion/sauce mixture. The sauce wasn't quite what I was expecting. Also, I found that 4 large potatoes made WAY more mashed potato than I needed for this recipe. 2 potatoes would have been enough. Also, it's pretty good when frozen and reheated.

Owen's Peachy Pig Out

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
I didn't really like this recipe. It just wasn't the right combination of flavors. I also wanted the sauce to make some kind of syrupy gravy, but it never did, no matter how much flour.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
YUM YUM and YUM! I LOVE this recipe. I've made it many, many times and every time it disappears. It also freezes/reheats well.

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
I like this dish a lot. I used to make it so often that I'm now sick of it, so I haven't made it in a while.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
The sauce was delicious. I used Portobello mushrooms, but I think regular mushrooms or button mushrooms might be better. I'm not a fan of spinach, so I might leave that out next time. I also left off the bacon bits because I didn't have any.

Bacon Feta Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
I really enjoyed this recipe. I might try it with turkey bacon next to cut some of the fat and sodium out. It also freezes and reheats well.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
I liked this recipe and have made it a couple times. I usually butterfly the chicken breasts. Last time I cooked it, the chicken came out very dry, so next time, I might try to cook it covered and see if that makes a difference.

Chicken and Artichokes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2005
I did not like this recipe. Perhaps it was the brand of artichokes I used, but they gave the sauce a really bitter taste that I didn't like at all! I also don't think the paprika went very well with the flavors of the sauce. I might try it again leaving out the artichokes and paprika and perhaps replacing the sherry with dry white wine, as the chicken itself tasted ok.

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
I made this to go with Cream Cheese Penguins recipe for Christmas dinner party and I shaped it to look like an igloo. Very good and easy to make!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
These penguins were GREAT! I'm only giving it a 4 because they are so labor-intensive. We made these as an appetizer for our Christmas dinner, and they were just too cute! We used garlic and herb whipped cream cheese and a cookie press to get it in the olives. It definitely took two people to pipe the cream cheese in, but I did the rest of the assembly by myself. We covered a plate in foil, then blue saran wrap to look like ice, and served it with a cheese ball (Cheese Ball I recipe on this website) shaped like an igloo.

Texas Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
I haven't actually made this recipe myself. I'm giving it 5 stars because I gave this recipe to a friend who can't cook to save his life. He cooked this recipe multiple times, and even once made it when he had friends over. If it's simple enough that a non-cook can make, enjoy, and share with others, it deserves 5 stars!

Chilled Strawberry Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
I was looking for a recipe to replicate the one I had on a Carnival cruise several years ago and THIS IS IT! I've made this recipe many, many times and I love it! I usually add a little more sugar than the recipe calls for. If I'm making it for a special occasion, I'll use whole milk and regular sour cream. If I'm making it just for me, I'll use skim milk and low-fat sour cream. It still tastes just as good!
