Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I also wanted to re-create this recipe after trying it at a local pub. This was a good start, but I wanted to really thicken mine up. We ate it almost like dip instead of soup using tortilla chips to scoop it up. Yum! I did not use the crock pot. I started by heating up a chopped onion and chopped celery in butter until tender, whisking in 1/4 cup flour. I only had 1 cup of cooked chopped chicken, so I added that and 1/2 cup of hot sauce, I like mine spicy! I decreased the milk to 2 cups, used 1 & 1/2 cans of cream of chicken soup, and 1/2 cup of sour cream. I added 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese to the recipe. Just cut it into pieces and let it melt into the soup. Let it heat through and thicken up for about 15-20 minutes. This is definitely one for the recipe box. What a nice meal for those cool winter nights!

Easy Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
This was great!! I thought I was in for a not-so-good dinner tonight when I realized we didn't have any meat in the freezer. But, I found this easy recipe, and I thought I'd give it a try! I happened to have everything right in my cupboard, I just had to use shell pasta instead. I think adding red pepper flakes is a must, it gives it a nice spicey kick. I also added more chicken broth and less tomato. YUM! Thanks for this recipe!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
I used ground turkey and brown rice, and I put the peppers covered in the oven while I was browning the turkey & cooking the rice. Then, I only had to bake for 30 minutes and the peppers were nice and tender. I skipped the basting, and I added fresh chopped onion and garlic to the mix.

Escarole and Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
This recipe was great! It is my favorite Italian dish, and there are so many things to do with it. I added some cooked chicken pieces this time, but I really love Italian sausage in it as well. It is great with chicken broth and day old hard bread as someone suggested. I only had one head of escarole, so I used some frozen chopped spinash too. Wonderful!! Thanks!

Gourmet Chicken Salad II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
I was a little disappointed with this recipe. I thought I would love the combination of ingredients, but it was way too nutty. I couldn't finish it because all I could taste were the walnuts. If they were decreased to maybe 1/2 cup, this would have been good.

Chicken Noodle Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2006
I liked this soup because I could just throw in the ingredients. The trick to this one is just to throw in a few more! Otherwise, it would have been bland. I threw in whatever I had that might be good in soup, a can of beans, a little ketchup for tomato flavor, more salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and carrots.

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
I have to say I am impressed with this recipe! It made me look like a good baker--and I'm really not! It was simple (a lot more simple than pumpkin roll) but with the classic pumpkin taste I was hoping for. It is amazing with the pumpkin bar icing. Definitely more of a cake consistency, but still very good. I followed the recipe but added ginger.

Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
This was my first attempt at a pie ever, and it turned out delicious!! It made two pies, but that was ok with me! I used can pure pumpkin puree, and I thought the consistency was perfect.

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
This soup was amazing! Just the right amount of spice and thickness and taste--big hit! The only problem for me was this was my first time using butternut squash, and it was so hard to chop! I ended up using a melon scoop.

Italian Vegetable Soup with Beans, Spinach & Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
This soup hit the spot! It was just what I was hoping for. I added some basil to the olive oil and garlic to the onions. Definitely would salt and pepper it more if I could go back, this time I didn't and ended up adding some to my individual dish which really made it flavorful. I also threw in some cooked acini di pepe pasta, but the soup was good by itself as well!

Beefy Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
This was the perfect Spanish Rice recipe for me, it was exactly what I was looking for. I used cus cus instead of rice to make it lower in fat, but should have cooked it seperately because it didn't soften completely. Also, I added a dash of ground cumin for some spice.

Roasted Asparagus and Garlic

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
I was trying to imitate an asparagus dish I had at a restaurant, and this was it! The only things I did differently were substituted wine with a drizzle of butter because I didn't have any wine...and I added cashew peices because it seemed like it would go well with the dish--and it did! I will definitely be making this again.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
This recipe is amazing. I am not even a big fan of macaroni salad, but I was craving it and this totally hit the spot. I reccomend it to anyone! Just make sure to lessen the sugar...and I didn't add the pepper or vinegar just because I didn't have any. I also used wagon wheel pasta because it's all I had. Thanks for this recipe! UPDATE: Just made this salad again twice this week, once for a party and once for ourselves--this time instead of wagon wheel macaroni I used two cups of elbow macaroni...and the sauce was way too thin! I will make sure to use more mac. when I use elbow.

Pork Chops with Sour Cream and Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
I can imagine how, if followed exactly, this recipe could be bland-- but I took the advice of other raters and changed it up a bit. We loved this version enough to give it five stars and make it our new pork chop sauce! It came out pretty amazing. First, I melted a big hunk of butter in the saucepan and covered it in my favorite spices (thyme, rosemary, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper). Then I threw in two chopped onions and some minced garlic (all of this sauteing in butter smelled amazing!) Then I threw in a can of sliced mushrooms and put about 4 dashes of dark ale beer in. I let this mixture boil for a couple of minutes, removed it from the skillet & added the pork. I browned the pork for about ten minutes, mixed the sour cream, soups and mushroom mixture together and poured over top. I only simmered everything together for 20 minutes since my porkchops were cut thin. YUM! We were sopping up the sauce with mashed potatoes and everything, it was really good.

Broiled Herb Butter Chicken

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
This chicken came out amazing! I melted the butter, garlic & seasonings together in the microwave, cut slits in the chicken, brushed the butter mix all over both sides and into slits, and broiled for 10 mins, added shredded cheese and broiled another 5....so yummy! We make this all the time now!

Favorite Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
This is my new favorite sauce! It was amazing on boneless thin cut porkchops. I didn't have honey or vinegar or worcestire, but I thought I'd try it anyway! I skipped the honey & vinegar, and used 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce. (I had to double the sauce to cover 6 chops). I dipped the chops in the glaze and grilled them for about 15 minutes without returning them to the skillet because they were perfect...a little overdone, if anything. We will be making this again for sure!

Lucy's Mac and Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
Talk about comfort food! If you cut the time it takes to make this in half by boiling the mac for about 5 mins and heating all the other ingredients together on the stove and then mixing all together and baking for maybe 10-20 more minutes, this recipe is so easy. I just used shredded cheddar cheese, and I also added one diced onion & a bunch of bacon bits. I meant to make it as a side, but it ended up being a meal!

Baked Mushroom Thighs

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
I gave this recipe four stars, but it's a four leaning towards a three only because mine came out kind of soggy. With the soup sauce as a base to the breadcrumbs, the chicken never became crispy from baking. If I could go back, I would have pan fried them first or broiled them for 10 extra minutes. Other than that, I doubled the sauce because I was having mashed potatoes (which it went well with), I topped the chicken with one diced onion and a can of sliced mushrooms. I also took the advice of another member and cooked an extra 10 mins at 400 degrees.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
This is so easy...and so good! (Of course, I do love mushrooms, onions & garlic) So, if that is what you like this is the dish for you! I added an extra can of soup to make more gravy for mashed potatos, & I added some lemon juice to bring out the flavors. I used 6 boneless chops thinly cut...I would only simmer them for 15 minutes next time--they were a little tough at 20 minutes.
