Upside-Down Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
We thought this was very good. The recipe is on the back of the Knorr package. The only change I made was instead of frozen vegetables I chopped fresh: one carrot, one celery stalk and one small head of broccoli. I used grilled, shredded chicken and topped the dish with fresh ground black pepper. A definite keeper!

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
This is a very easy and good recipe for homemade Pesto Sauce! I'll never buy Pesto from the store again. Since I only needed a little, I made 1/3 of the recipe. My basil plant doesn't have quite enough leaves for a whole cup, so used 1/2 cut fresh basil leaves and 1/2 cup baby spinach leaves.

Pineapple Sherbet

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
Excellent flavor, but ours came out very hard, making it difficult to serve. I'm thinking I didn't drain the pineapple well enough. Next time I'll make sure to drain the can fully, hopefully eliminating some of the ice.

Vegetable-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
This is a wonderful vegetarian recipe. To make it a bit more economical I use regular sliced mushrooms and just layer all the ingredients to make it into a casserole. I do use a little less Balsamic vinegar but otherwise follow the recipe as is.

Smothered Green Beans II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
Bacon has always been a staple in my green beans, but from now on I'll add Worcestershire and brown sugar. I highly recommend this recipe. I tripled the amount of green beans since it was for a picnic. However, I only doubled the bacon, and used only one onion for the whole dish (I thought this was plenty of both, as I didn't want to overpower the beans). Increasing the water for more beans probably was not necessary, as the time it takes to boil off 2 cups of water is about the right amount of time for the beans to get tender. Stirring often will ensure all the beans get their fair share of time in the water. I used a little over 3 cups but wish I hadn't, because there was too much liquid left over and I ended up pouring some of that wonderful sauce down the drain. I was concerned about the amount of Worcestershire in the recipe, but the brown sugar really toned it down and gave the dish a very good flavor. Just a hint of sweetness was a nice compliment to the saltiness of the bacon and the bite in the Worcestershire. The recipe was a hit - everyone wanted to know what that unique flavor was.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2005
All thumbs up from my family. Hot applesauce is such a nice change from cold. I only used 1/2 c. water, as the other reviews said it was too watery. I added a pinch of ground cloves which added a wonderful aroma and taste. Next time I will also try adding a little nutmeg.

Caramel Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
Excellent and easy... this will probably become my standard Pecan Pie recipe. The only caramels I could find were Milky Way Chocolate Covered Caramels so I used 36 of them instead of plain caramels. That gave it kind of a "Turtle" taste which was fabulous. I also used a few more pecans (closer to 1 1/2 cups) since I used a deep dish crust.
