Cherry Cobbler I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
Really good! I used fresh bing cherries and like many people, I used 1/2 cup sugar in the batter and then 1/2 cup sugar and 2/3 cup water in the syrup and it turned out perfect, not too sweet with a slightly crispy top and a very pretty sauce. I also used more cherries and put it all in a 3qt Pyrex baking dish. I served it with a little vanilla ice cream and it was the perfect summer dessert! I'm trying to keep myself busy so I'll stay out of the kitchen and resist the temptation to eat another big helping. So good!

Mom's Fabulous Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Oh my gosh, so yummy! I used chicken thighs and mushroom broth and it was soooo good! You can assemble the mixture on the stove top in an oven safe pan or cast iron skillet and throw the whole thing in the oven and you have an awesome one dish dinner! I served with a simple green salad and it was the perfect Monday night dinner.

Sweet Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Made these for Thanksgiving and they were a hit. My husband who doesn't usually like rolls really loved these and other family memebers really raved. I thought they were pretty good but I'm giving them 5 stars based on my family memebers response. I baked one whole sweet potato and mashed it and that instead of the canned and brushed meted butter on top after they baked. These were a great addition to the holiday meal.

Tropical Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Totally 5 stars for several reasons. Any recipe that is simple, easy on the budget, fast and delicious is a winner in my house. I used the boneless cuts and I would totally recommend doubling the sauce to put over the rice. Really good and fast and a great way to cook those borring old pork chops!

Savory Swiss Chard with Portobellos

Pesto Polenta Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
I doubled this recipe to feed 8 people and it was very good! The Trader Joe's polenta I used was pretty salty so I would advise against adding any extra salt to this dish. Very good, easy and economical and perfect for a vegetarian dish. I would give it four and a half stars if I could.

Teriyaki Tofu with Pineapple

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
This was so good and so easy! I used a high quality teriyaki sauce and ended up pan frying it on the stove at a higher temp and let the tofu firm up and the teriyaki sauce reduce down a bit then served it with rice. Use a good quality sauce (I used Soy Vey teriyaki sauce) and it turns out great. I had other things baking in the oven so I used a non stick skillet and pretty much ended up stir frying it and it turned out very good.

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
These were really yummy, quick and easy! I used zucchini, carrot, garlic and onion and whole wheat cous couse and a nice zesty bbq sauce. These cooked really fast and couldn't have been easier. Great way to sneak in some extra veggies into a meal. Like others, I grated the zuccini and carrot and finely minced the onion.

Christmas Eve Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
Sooo good and so easy! I decreased the meat to 1 1/2 pounds and added mushrooms and a bit more tapioca. Cooked it in my cast iron qoc au vin pot for 3 1/2 hours on 300 and oh my goodness, soooo yummy!

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
Dang, this was yummy! I used turkey cutlets instead and halved the red pepper flakes just cause I have little kids. I probably simmered the sauce a little longer and it reduced down and made an amazingly flavorful sauce!

Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
This was a really good recipe and everyone liked it. I made a couple changes though. I used coconut oil instead of the shortning for the health benefits and spiced it up with some vanilla and cinnamon. Finally, I added a couple tablespoons applesauce just cause it was kind of dry and I felt it needed a bit more moisture.

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
This was great and reminded me of pumpkin pie! My 2 year old twins have been off veggies for a couple weeks but they gobbled this up and had seconds and thirds! So anything that the toddlers like is a winner in my book. I served it with breaded pork chops and stuffing for a cold weather treat.

Oven-Roasted Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
This was so good and so easy! I used sweet potato, sweet onion, turnips, parsnips and carrots. Be sure to check it before the time because mine were done early. Use some aluminum foil to line your pan and no clean up.

Nectarine Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Yum! Here is a hint to help get the skins off easier. Before you put the fruits in the boiling water cut a small X in the bottom with a pairing knife then after blanching them in the boiling water and cooling them you can just peel them like a banana.

Awesome Easy Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Really good but due to the previous reviews of thin sauce I made adjustments but kept the ingredients the same. I rendered the bacon in a pan and set aside on towel, reserving a few (4-5) tablespoons of bacon grease whisked in 2 tablespoons flour and whisked for 30 seconds. Added 1 1/2 cup chicken broth and simmered for 2-3 minutes until thick, added 2 cups half and half and the chicken and simmered for 10 minutes and added the peas and the cheese, crumbled bacon, and salt, pepper and garlic powder. Very good, thick sauce.

Tomato Chops II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Really good! I omitted the green peppers because we don't like them and I used spaghetti sauce just because I didn't have plain tomato sauce and I simmered it for about 45 minutes to get the meat really tender and it was super good and everyone loved it! So tender, no knife needed.

Creamed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
This was really, really good! It's the middle of summer and cabbage is chep but hubby doesn't like coleslaw and corned beef and cabbage doesn't seem right in July so I tried this recipe and between 2 adults, 1 teen and 2 toddlers we polished off the whole big bowl! Now I did add an extra strip of bacon cause c'mon, it's bacon! but aside from that I followed the recipe exactly and sooo good, everyone loved it!

Curried Chicken and Brown Rice Casserole

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
OK, so I am reviewing the recipe that I tweeked a bit. I had about 4 cups of leftover brown and wild rice from dinner the night before along with about 2-3 cups of roast chicken thighs and some breast meat from earlier in the week so I omitted the water and chicken bouillon and used a whole 15.5 oz can of Itilian style stewed tomatoes and followed the recipe from there and just cooked the whole thing in the oven for about half an hour until bubbly. Such a great combination of flavors, my boys were skeptical when they saw the raisins but mmmmmm, so yummy they fought over the last spoonfuls! Winning recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Loved this! I reduced the Italian dressing by about a third to cut down on sodium and will try and find low sodium soup next time. Replaced part of the mix with garlic powder and pepper and also added mushrooms and served w/ egg noodles. My one year old twins loved it and so did the rest of the family.

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2010
When I can make something that my teenagers will eat, my husband will eat and my twin one year olds will eat I am in heaven! Whipped these up (doubled the recipe) and served with some basmati rice and veggies and ding, ding, ding, we have a winner. Replaced my curried salmon cake recipe with this since not everyone in my house is a curry lover and I will definately make these again!
