Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Excellent. I've been disappointed with most marinades I've tried...this is the best yet! We used chicken, onions, yellow and orange bell peppers, and zucchini. We were going to add pineapple but I didn't have any fresh and my canned pineapple was tidbits, not chunks, so too small for a skewer.

Potato and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Pretty good, but could use a little oomph. The Swiss I bought to make the casserole was halfway gone by the time I got around to making this dish, so I used Swiss in the casserole and Italian blend on top. Also sprinkled with bread crumbs and broiled for a minute or two at the end of the baking time. I did have to use more liquid for the sauce; very thick. This calls for 3-3-1 butter-flour-milk and I usually at least start with 1-1-1. Next time: use half potatoes and half cauliflower; add onions and celery; maybe mushrooms. This is a good base recipe for a veggie casserole and offers good instructions. Oh, and I managed to use one pan plus my steamer (plus the casserole dish, of course). Not that I'm lazy or anything...but honestly, this uses a lot of pans!

Mushroom Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
Very good. I stuck with the ingredients except for doubling the sauce and mushrooms. Also altered the methods somewhat: cook and remove chicken and keep warm; use pan to make sauce; poor sauce over at serving. To reduce cholesterol, used half as much butter to start but did have to add a bit of olive oil later.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Excellent. Used canned tomatoes, more carrots, and dried herbs...and it was still excellent!

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
I tried this because I like the classic broccoli salad - and this is it pretty much but with tortellini - and thought this would be more like a main dish. I didn't care for the addition of the tortellini but I'm sure that's just a personal preference. I think it was because 'sweet' is good with all of the other ingredients but I didn't care for sweet tortellini.

Creamy Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Sorry but I did not care for this at all. I love carrots and I've had carrot soup a couple of times in restaurants, but this just didn't work out for me.

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
We really enjoyed this dish. I didn't use eggplant, personal preference, substituted two cups of other veggies (broccoli and something else...can't remember now). This will be a regular!!

Texas-Style Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
This was good…but. Don’t preheat the oven first thing; too early. I didn’t get the instructions (#5) to cook until thickened. At that point, the only thing in the pan is onions and tomatoes. But, maybe I was supposed to add the tomato sauce with the tomatoes. The recipe lists tomato sauce but doesn’t say when to add it. Also, garlic tends to brown rather quickly, so I added it later, not with the onions. Used two green peppers, two yellow peppers, and one red pepper, none of which were especially large. I had plenty of filling, but I did add one cup of wild/brown rice and an extra 1/3 cup of black beans. (One can of black beans, rinsed and drained, is 1 1/3 cup, so I used the entire can.) Didn’t have jalapeno. Used the oregano and cumin 1-1, adding a bit more than one teaspoon as I had more filling with the rice and extra beans. I also poured a can of enchilada sauce over the peppers before baking. It is a hearty, healthy, and tasty vegetarian main dish! We will use the recipe again. Thanks for sharing!

TC's Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Very good. I used one cup chopped walnuts and one cup Craisins. Next time I would rough-chop the Craisins. When they plumped, some of them were a bit big. I also used 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon as I bought some Saigon cinnamon and think it's really strong! I made seven mini-loaves (about 3" x 5.75").

Fresh Pear Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
Update: Still excellent, but I made another batch with canned pears I needed to use up and not nearly as good as fresh. FYI..so use either but fresh worked better for me. Original: Excellent...altho I couldn't really taste the pears. Could have been my pears. But the flavor and especially the texture of this bread was excellent. I made six mini loaves because I was in a hurry. I also cut way back on the cinnamon but that's because I have a bottle of Saigon cinnamon that I think has an especially strong flavor.

Ambrosia

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I love this salad. I've been making it for more years than I care to count...like, twenty or thirty. The recipe is no longer on the back of the [Dole] pineapple can. I looked on the Dole website and they have a recipe for ambrosia but it's different. This salad does need to chill for several hours but does not keep especially well. Drain off any liquid as it accumulates.

TC's Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Yummy. To cut fat and cholesterol, and have one less dirty pan to wash: dissolve 1.5 T cornstarch into milk; stir turkey into pan with cooked vegetables; bring back to low boil; slowly add cornstarch mixture; cook and stir until thickened. I sauteed the vegetables in vegetable oil instead of butter and using the cornstarch means that the additional 2T butter isn't needed. Big cut in saturated fat and cholesterol. I didn't miss the butter, but I haven't made this with butter, so maybe it would taste better, but the end result was very good. On the servings, I used a 9.5" pie plate. I don't see this serving eight hungry adults...since it includes protein, starch, and veggies, one-eighth of this pie with a side salad doesn't seem like a lot of food.
