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.

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
Great dish with a bright flavor, especially during these 100+ degree days of summer. Husband loved it.

Mike's Mushroom Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
FANTASTIC! Served as a side, along with burger patties and Mouse's Mac & Cheese. Made as written, and the crust came out buttery and crunchy. It's a keeper! Thanks, Mike!

Zucchini Ribbons With Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Yowza, this was HOT! Next time I'll reduce the crushed red pepper flakes to a pinch, instead of .5 teaspoon; although the goat cheese was delish, the heat overtook us all, even hubster, who LOVES hot food. Will save with my notes, and I liked a new way to eat zukes without steaming.

Kielbasa Alfredo

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Rating this low because the sauce in the jar is gruesome! I had some from a hurricane stash and needed to use it up. Wow, what a disappointment. Here's a wonderful recipe for homemade alfredo sauce, with ingredients you can pronounce! (unlike those on the jar.) Melt 8 tbsp real, unsalted butter in a large pan. Add 16oz heavy whipping cream, 3 cloves minced garlic, and stir well to combine. Let simmer until large, shiny bubbles form, then add previously sauteed mushrooms, and 5 green onions, cut up with scissors into tiny circles. Stir to combine, let simmer 2 minutes, then serve over your favorite cooked pasta. Simple, delicious, and amazing! You can also add sauteed shrimp or your favorite protein to round-out the meal. Happy cooking!

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
I cut the recipe in half, and added 1 tsp Italian seasoning, buttermilk Ranch dry dressing mix, and smoked seasoned salt to the mixture, and it turned out fluffy and delicious! I let it cool, then cut the egss into 1/2-inch strips to make 20 wheat breakfast burritos for the upcoming school year's breakfasts. I put the egg strips on top of shredded cheese on a wheat tortilla, and made 2 varieties; both had pan-fried hash browns. but DD wanted Canadian bacon, and DS wanted crumbled breakfast sausage and sauteed mushrooms. This is a keeper! Thanks, Erin!

Eggs Benedict Breakfast Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Halved the recipe and made in a 7x11" pan, after spraying with non-stick cooking spray. I used 1 can croissant rolls and pre-baked for 7 mins. When done, I used AR's "Blender Hollandaise" sauce and poured it all over the crust; added eggs, sauteed mushrooms (from AR's Pat's Mushroom Saute'), lunchmeat ham slices torn into random small pieces, and a mixture of sharp cheddar and monterrey jack cheeses. Everyone went back for seconds, so this one's a keeper!

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
We had "bfast for dinner" tonight, and kids and hubby loved it! Never thought about the flour before, but it adds a "lightness" to the batter. This only made 8 "Texas Toast" size pieces, so I'll double it next time and freeze the leftovers for a quick breakfast.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Wonderful! The kids (13 & 11) and hubby inhaled this! I used 4 butterflied, pork loin chops, and 2 of them were really wide, so this actually made 7 servings. The only change I'd make is to add some panko to the Italian bread crumbs. Thanks to Cindy in Pensacola for recommending!

Tender Pork Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Family loved them; glad I bought an extra rack of ribs while they were on sale! I forgot to save the drippings to make a sauce, but the kids and hubby loved them anyway. Thanks for posting the recipe! Please note: many reviewers have commented that the sauce didn't thicken. I've had great success using a "fat separator." It looks like a measuring cup and it has a spout that stems from the bottom of the cup. Simply pour all the gravy in and let it rest about a minute, and the fat will float to the top. Pour the gravy into the pan, but keep an eye on the separator, and do not pour in the clear fat. Discard the fat, but don't pour it down the drain or your pipes will clog. Your sauce will thicken, I promise! Hope that helps.

IMHO, I thought the broth only made the veggies mushy. Thanks for the idea!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Great with fritos scoops; all the fritos were gone at the party, but still lots of salsa left. I used red onion and made my own Italian dressing, using good seasons and balsamic vinegar. Instead of canned tomatoes, I halved some grape tomatoes. Yum!

Chicken Zucchini Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Don't hate me for changing this a little & rating it, but I rate and refer back to my own notes when making recipes again. I didn't have any eggs, so I used the 1 can of crescent rolls I had & spread in a 9x13 pan. Added the honey mustard, and sauteed zucchini with mushrooms (no onions due to allergies) and yellow squash. I poked fork holes and baked the crust 10 mins on 375, then added the honey mustard and chicken/veggie mixture. Put shredded cheese (only 4 oz) on top and baked 12 more minutes to melt the cheese. Everyone except DS loved it; made enough for 2 meals. Next time I'll have eggs and make it per directions, and I think it'll be like a quiche.

Brown Chicken Stock

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
My favorite store had a coupon for buy a rotisserie chicken, get another half-off, so I used those bones to roast. I'd kept a gallon ziplock bag of veggie stems and scraps, and last time I made veggie stock, I never used it, so I decided to add all those veggies to the bottom of a rimmed cookie sheet and put the bones on top. It's roasting now and the house smells fantastic! I'll freeze in 1-cup portions like a previous reviewer suggested and use to make rice, soups, and gravies. Thanks for posting!
