Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
truly the best. simple and easy to make. on some of the bars I pressed a MINI pretzel into the chocolate while the chocolate was still warm (right after spreading). Makes for a pretty decoration and adds a salty bit to the sweet.

Sunset Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
I grow both yellow and roma tomatoes in my garden every summer and so when i came across this recipe i had to try it. I could eat this everyday in the summer with the fresh tomatoes - it's outstanding, wouldn't change a thing!! It's so pretty and colorful and yellow tomatoes are less acidic than reds, so make sure you use the yellow with the romas.

well I didn't have ALL the stuff on hand - missing celery salt and green bell pepper, but I did put everythign else in, and for teh 7lb briskete i had, it took about 14 hours on LOW (should have done part of it on high) to get to shreddable stage. Received many many compliments on it. Thank you sooo much for sharing!!!

Jimmy Dean Three Pepper Sausage Corn Cakes

Reviewed: May 21, 2006
I used HOT sausage after reading the reviews, but these were still awfully bland. i would rather just make an omelette or frittat and have a piece of toast on the side - would have taken much less time! doubt we will make this again.

Cara's Creamy Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2006
I used 1.5lbs instead of 3 and had PLENTY of meat in each shell. I omitted the eggs since they really are only used as a binding ingredient and unneccesary if you are using cream cheese versus ricotta. I also added a pkg of chopped spinach, drained. I think I could have gotten away with half a pkg of cream cheese as well. Overall, very tastey.

Black Bean Soup with Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2006
this was easy and very good. however, i think next time i'll only puree half of it - it was just too much on the liquid side for our tastes. I paired it with black olive and mushroom quesadillas and added avocado slices on top of the soup - the first meatless dinner that my husband hasn't asked "where's the meat?"

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2006
easy and yummers - I love the carrots celery and potato added in. I didn't soak the peas, just rinsed them and cooked them - they cook so quickly they really don't need the soak.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
as others have said, please follow a 20 to 25 min per LB rule. I too had an over 4lb chicken and it took about an 1 hour and 40 mins, though I think I could have pulled it out a bit sooner, like maybe 1 hour, 30 mins. That said, for how easy it is to put this recipe together, the flavor is fantastic! I did 2 whole stems of rosemary- leaves pulled, rinsed and chopped fine. Also I recommend using kosher salt or sea salt versus the fine table salt. My skin got browned, i did turn my pan around 1/2 way through cooking to ensure even browning. If you don't have an oven thermometer, I highly suggest investing in one - your oven dial might say 350, but your oven might be as low as 300, or range between 320 - 360.

Garlic Rosemary Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2006
I just used regular 2% milk and mashed by hand - if you overmash you end up with "gluey" potatoes and that's easier to do with a mixer, but oh my this was sooooo yummy!! and soooo easy - I made it in conjunction with the Roast Chicken with Rosemary by Nanette - http://chicken.allrecipes.com/az/RoastChickenwithRosemary.asp - what a fabulous dinner. I just added a nice side salad and voila a gourmet tasting dinner with VERY little effort!! Make sure you get GOOD fresh rosemary - I like Living herbs from California. The rosemary also makes the potatoes look pretty with all the little green flecks!

Romantic Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
this was very good. my husband LOVED it, but I think next time we'll try it over rice instead. The rice would soak up the sauce very well I think. Very easy to make and quite yummy.

Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
when I first said to my husband we were having frittata for dinner - he gave me the "oh gah we're having some sort of foo-foo girly food" look. but when I served it to him, he said it was delicious. I made it in a cast iron skillet and the only thing I did differently was add some chopped up green onions in right before I dumped the egg mixture in the pan. (needed to use them up) Great easy recipe that you can adjust however you like.

Meatloaf California

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
too much pepper? are you crazy?? this is the best meatloaf!! quite tasty. the only change I made is that I reduced the brown sugar to 2 Tablespoons instead of 1/4 cup- the first time I did made it exactly and found it a bit too sweet, last night I made it again but with the reduced amount of brown sugar- and it was perfect! I want to thank you for sharing this recipe!! it is the now the meatloaf by which all other meatloafs will be measured.
