Chocolate Mousse Cake IV

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Made this for DD's 14th bday party, and we feasted on the leftovers for a couple of days. Delicious! I used the cake mix with the pudding inside to make it more dense, and the guests enjoyed watching me whip the cream (and tasting the results!). Keeper!

Sunday Dinner Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Made for an extended family Easter luncheon, and I used 5 lbs of skinned red potatoes, neufchatel cheese, and reduced fat sour cream. I added a sprinkle of smoked paprika on top before serving, and kept them warm in a slow cooker. They were well received, and I'd make them again. This easily fed 3 college students, 3 high school students, a middle schooler, and 6 adults, and there were leftovers.

Homemade Laundry Soap

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
Ten stars! I first made a half batch to see how I liked it, and I'm very pleased with how soft the clothes come out. We are a family of 4 with kids (11 & 13), and although my kids don't get very dirty, they are entering the puberty stage and the underarm odor can make your eyes water! However, this detergent, along with adding vinegar to the first line in my Downy ball for each load, leaves clothes clean and fresh. I like it so much, I'm making a triple batch today, and this is our new detergent. Personal note: I didn't care for the scent of the Fels Naptha, so I used the Kirks Castille, and it's nice. The batch I'll make next will use pink Zote, and I'll update my review later. I keep the detergent in a rectangular Rubbermaid pitcher that sits on top of the washer, and I keep a 1/2-gallon bottle of vinegar next to it. The pitcher has an indention on top where the Downy ball fits perfectly. Thanks for posting the blog and the recipe, Ba'Nana! I love saving money!

Baked Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Delicious! My DS who turned 12 this week had two helpings! The family enjoyed it, even though I accidentally left out the S&P. Thanks for an easy, quick meal, Marion!

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Made this for the second time last night; it's perfect for those who cannot eat tomatoes. It makes enough to feed a family of 4 twice! I made the rice separately (using chicken broth) and I used a whole carton of chicken stock in the jambalaya; let it cook down a little bit, and the rice was still perfect. I doubled the celery and sausage, using half boudain and half kielbasa, and I also added a cubed yellow squash, fresh mushrooms, and a cubed small zucchini to add some veggies to this one-dish meal. Even though I forgot to add the last 2 ingredients, the family still enjoyed it; hubs had seconds. Served with large biscuits. I have now deleted the other jambalaya recipes from my recipe box, and this is the only one I'll use. Thanks for the post, Grant Michel!

Roasted Vegetable Orzo

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Made this per directions, and it was good, but it makes a TON! Fed our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 hungry pre-teens) three meals. I added shredded chicken to it the first night to make it a meal in itself.

Sausage Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Made this and let it cool, then I cut into rectangles and froze them. Great for a quick grab-n-go breakfast; just nuke each rectangle until warm!

Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Family enjoyed this light dressing. I added a teaspoon of brown sugar, put the ingredients in a small mason jar with a lid, and shook it to incorporate everything. This was my first time to use white balsamic vinegar, and it was good. This recipe also works quite well with red balsamic vinegar, too!

Fried Rice I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
Boiled rice in chicken broth & used leftover chicken instead of bacon. I also added chunks of zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms. Family enjoyed it as a main dish with hot & sour soup on the side, and there were enough leftovers for 2 large servings.

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
The family loved these, warm from the oven. I only had 1-3/4 c rolled oats, so I added 1/4 c wheat germ for a little fiber and the texture turned out great. I also used 1.5 cups semi sweet chips + and 1/2 c cinnamon chips, and I subbed 1/2 c sugar with 1/2 c Splenda, since I have to watch my sugar. Lovely!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
I had 3 apples and 1 large peach. I used Splenda instead of sugar, and I used a little more cinnamon, and it turned out fantastic! I'm on a temporary no-fat, no-dairy diet, and this was wonderful on pork loin. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
I found ground Italian sausage and used that; much easier than taking the skins off! I cooked the bacon whole and crumbled later, and I used kale instead of spinach because I had it and needed to use it. Wonderful! It's a keeper!

Vegetable-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I had great expectations and made this as a side for dinner. The mushrooms should marinate much longer, because they were chewy in the middle and not completely done, and there was too much artichoke for our tastes. Thanks for the post; I'm sure it was our personal tastes; great idea.

Beef Burgundy III

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
To make this a lot quicker, I put seasoned flour in a ziplock bag, then added 1" cubes of beef; shook them to coat with flour, then added half to a searing pan of canola oil with a little EVOO for flavor. After the first batch was done, I seared the 2nd batch, then poured 2 cans of soup and 1 soup can of red wine into a bowl. Stirred together, then added to the pot of simmering beef and mushrooms (baby bella have more flavor than plain white, IMO). Set on low on my gas stove and simmered for 2 hours; served over wide noodles (no yolks). Use the same red wine you'd serve with a meal for the best flavor. This is a keeper!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
This one's my "go-to" recipe. Due to allergies, I use 22 ozs beef broth (using beef base and water). The only changes I make are to remove the inner bread from the rolls, then bake to get them toasty. I put the shredded meat on the toasted buns, then add a slice of provolone cheese, and bake another few minutes until cheese is melted and bread is golden. I put the broth mixture in individual ramekins for dipping. Delish! If there are any leftovers, I use the meat to make beef pot pies; just thicken the gravy, add either frozen mixed veggies or diced veggies of your choice, and pour into a premade pie crust. Add second pie crust on top, trim any extra crust, cut 6-8 slits for steam to escape, brush with 1 egg white, and bake at 350 for 25-30 mins until golden brown. I've also made the pot pies and frozen before baking to have in the freezer.
