Skillet Bow Tie Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This was ok though it seemed to be missing something. I would probably use ricotta cheese next time. Also I think a pork sausage would rock in this dish and give it a ton more flavor. Perhaps next time.

Barbequed Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I've never made ribs in my life but when my son brought home 10 pounds of them I had to. I picked this recipe because of its ease and darn it if it didn't turn out great. The sauce was stellar even though I didn't puree the onions. The only thing is be sure the grill master doesn't overcook them like my dear old hubby did. Really good way to make ribs.

Baked Havarti Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Such a simple dish that really mixes things up at dinner. I wasn't sure about the combination of ingredients but it really worked. I ended up using Italian seasoning and plain havarti but it worked fine. I also used fresh garlic with the mushroom sauce. Really a big hit with the whole family and sooo easy!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Wonderful and simple recipe. I've made it twice now and both time got rave reviews. If your peaches are very ripe you may want to add a smidge more corn starch to help thicken it up though. Great flavor, I always added a bit more spices just cause I'm that way. Very good, very easy and all around great recipe.

Blackberry Peach Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
What a nice summer pie. Peaches and blackberries are in season at the same time here in the Northwest and so it seemed perfect to pair them in a pie. The peaches and berries really have a nice flavor together and the berries give the pie filling a lovely red color. I used more peaches and less berries just because I could only get 2 cups of berries off my small bushes but I had a ton of peaches to use. Serve with a little vanilla icecream and enjoy.

Turkey Cutlets with Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
This was very good and used items I had on hand. I used a cup of diced canned tomatos instead, increased the mushrooms and omitted the lemon juice. After browning the cutlets I added them to the sauce, covered and continued cooking until turkey was cooked through. I pre-seasoned the turkey with salt, pepper and garlic powder before cooking and the sauce reduced down a bit during cooking to intensify the flavors. I would definately make this again.

Lemon PHILLY Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
This was a very light and delicious cupcake that had a subtle lemon flavor. I doubled the recipe and don't recommend doing this, instead just make it twice or else you might burn out your mixer, it makes so much. I also doubled the frosting but don't think I needed to because the recipe makes so much. Like another review said the frosting was very soft and tended to melt if it got room temp so I had to put it back in the fridge midway through to firm it back up. Perhaps next time I will use a different cream cheese frosting recipe and add the lemon (or not). The egg whites made the recipe very light and fluffy and they were really delish.

Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans and Fresh Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Really great way to use swiss chard which in my opinion is one of the most beautiful and healthful veggies there is. My son wasn't a fan of the lemon but I thought it balanced the bitterness of the chard. The garbonzo beans (aka chickpeas) added creaminess but I actually think it could do without the tomatos if you don't like them. I served with some roast turkey breasts and whole wheat dinner rolls for a really nice, easy dinner.

Quick Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
This was quick and easy for sure. I ended up using some small red potatos, carrots and onion instead of everything else and it turned out great. I cooked it longer on order to allow the carrots and potatos to cook through. I served with biscuits for a simple, week night dinner.

Smashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
This was a nice change from regular mashed potatos. Instead of just olive oil I used 2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil (very important to use extra virgin) and 2 Tbs. butter. This turned out very nice the butter was familiar and the olive oil added a nice earthy taste. I also added a smidge of garlic powder but you could probably cook the potatos with a couple cloves of fresh garlic if you wanted to.

Joe's Special Scramble

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Ok, first of all as a child my dad used to tell us he made this recipe up in the Air Force when he was in charge of cooking which I know now is total bogus (thanks dad). Now, I always loved this dish but it is better made with fresh spinach, saute the mushrooms with some butter seperatly and then you can top with some shredded cheddar or parmesan cheese and season liberally with salt and pepper. Pretty good and pleasing all around with some practice and something that as a kid we all looked forward to and as an adult is still fun to make. Can also be done with sausage for a different taste.

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
I liked this recipe because it is super fast and easy and has room for adjusments. I used Pillsbury ready pie crusts and one can cream of mushroom soup one can cream of chicken. I used frozen mixed veggies (carrots, peas, corn and greenbeans) and also peeled and diced up a medium russet potato. Finally I added some garlic powder, pepper and a handful of fresh herbs (thyme, oregano, parsley and sage) finely minced and it was really good. I can see using any number of leftovers for this dish as well. Though not gormet, the ease, speed and overall taste is really good.

Pueblo Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
Originally I gave this recipe 3 stars but my husband and son said it was definatly a 4 though I wasn't as wild about it as they were. I halved the recipe and omitted the jalapeno's just because I'm not a fan of spicy, the queso fresco was delish on top. Anyhoo, since these are not ingredients I usually keep in my pantry I don't know if I would go through the trouble of making this again but on the otherhand I'm sure it is a fabulous recipe with some practice.

Steff's Shepherd Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
5 stars for just plain ease. I did not have any green beans so I didn't add these but everything else was great. So simple that chances are you have everything on hand to make this in no time also a great way of using up leftover mashed potatos and the kids will gobble it up.

Yummy Yellow Taters

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
These were really good. I used this recipe for Easter dinner and everyone liked them though I might not use them every night just because they are so rich and after a few dinners of these I won't be able to fit into my Calvin Kleins. I had leftover which I used for shepherds pie. I only added 2 drops of food coloring though I think they are fine w/o it too. Only thing is I added all the half and half at once rather than slowly and so my taters were a little thin but still good.

Chicken Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This was a really yummy recipe. I followed the recipe except I did add some small egg noodles. I don't usually eat parsnips but its always good to try new things and they tasted fine in this soup. I would make this again for sure.

Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This was really good. I like that I had everything on hand to make this and it was healthy (not low calorie but healthy) and my family really liked it. I didn't use the chicken bouillon, instead I used worchester sauce and I grated some Asiago cheese on top of the potatos for added flavor.

Beef Bourguignonne

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
This was a good and simple recipe. I served mine over penne pasta but I can see this working great on its own for a dinner for two. I made mine in a large skillet and it was really flavorful and the meat very tender.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This was a wonderful, simple and fast soup that really was a pleaser! This recipe is a keeper. I did add some thyme and also just used low sodium chicken broth instead of the water and chicken boullion to cut down on sodium and it worked great. Served with some pesto French bread.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Super yummy, dense and spongy. I wanted a recipe that used sour cream and gave this a try and it was a hit. I made it in a hurry so perhaps that's why mine didn't rise much but that didn't matter. My hubby gave it his seal of approval saying that it was "pretty tasty!" this bread wasn't dry at all, really moist and dense and delish.
