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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Fast and Delicious Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
5 stars just because this recipe is so versitile. I used left over shredded pork instead of ham and added an extra carrot and more broth and more cumin. Really tasty and easy! Served with the buttery corn bread recipe on this site.

Honey Curried Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
This was so delicious! I followed the one reviewer who simply oven roasted the veggies first, set aside and roasted the chicken then the last 20 minutes tossed it all together in the oven with the glaze then served. It's true, you will want to double the glaze and the veggies because they are so incredable please note I omitted the onion and just used garlic powder because I was feeling lazy but it didn't affect the outcome as far as I'm concerned. Hubby couldn't stop praising this one, its a keeper for sure.

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
Oh my heck, these were the best biscuits I've ever made and I make alot of biscuits. I omitted the cayenne and probably came closer to undercooking these than overcooking them so they were just light golden brown and I made them really big. Oh man soooo good I think I'll write this one down and replace my Betty Crocker recipe with it!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
Great simple recipe for a spicy pumpkin bread. I made some changes to simplify the recipe for me though. I used half vegetable oil and half apple sauce then I used 3 tsp of pumpkin pie spice and then baked 2 5X9 loaves and had a little batter left over so I made a little baby pumpkin cake (cute) with the left over. I had to bake the larger loaves about 15 minutes longer. Very moist and flavorful!

Best Guacamole

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Fabulous! I've never made guacamole before even though it's one of my favorite things to eat and I have high standards for my guac. This was so easy, fast and most of all, delicious. Like others I added some minced cilantro and some diced tomatos for added color. Letting it sit for an hour or 2 in the fringe will ensure it doesn't taste lemony so be sure you make it a little ahead of time. Sooo good!

Sparkling Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This was a really nice punch, not really strong and just really pretty and fizzy. I was afraid that I would have a bunch left over since I only had about 13 people to serve but nope, it all got guzzled down by my guests even though I also had tea and coffee offered. Great recipe. If you have more thatn about 15 people you will probably want double the ingredients on hand since this will be a hit.

Cream of Cauliflower and Stilton Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Such a great, luxurious soup. I used butter instead of vegetable oil and cooked everything up together then pureed 2/3 of the soup and hand mashed the rest using a potato masher and finally jused used half and half instead of the heavy cream and milk. So deliciouse however if you are not a "stinky cheese" person you probably won't love it but if you're like me and think stinky cheese is the bomb then I'm pretty sure you're gonna love this.

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!

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.

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.

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.
