Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
This soup is always a winner with our family. I double it so that my hubby has leftovers for lunch. This is one of his favorite leftover lunches, too. Although I double the soup, I don't always double the roux. It just depends on how thick I want the soup. Also, I put in some extra wild rice since we like more rice in our soup and there's never enough in the boxes.

YUMMMY!!! Now if only my children would eat salmon, I'd make this all the time.

Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
Super easy to make and add to almost anything. The entire family loves these. Wouldn't use alone as biscuits though. Not enough flavor on its own.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
This is our family's favorite chocolate chip recipe. We have to make 1/2 the recipe because we have no self control and will eat the entire batch in one or two days. I usually cut the amount of choclate chips in half and still feel there's a lot in the cookies. So quick & easy to make, too!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
Double the recipe and keep extras around for a second meal. We eat this twice a month and top it with the dumpling recipe on this site instead of using the frozen pie crusts (although that tastes good too).

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
love this lasagna. Use only the cheese filling for in between the noodles and then sauce on the bottom and the top, and it will be even better per our own family's preferences (we don't like too much red sauce due to heartburn for hubby).

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Made for the first time last night. The entire family ate more than one bowl. They requested that I make this once a month and put it into the regular rotation during the cold months.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2014
We really liked this pizza sauce. Didn't have anchovy paste, so we didn't add it and it still turned out well.

Grandma's Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2014
Everyone but Matthew liked this soup. I'd make it earlier in the day and let the flavors meld together more.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
Brianna, Ryan, Matthew, and I ate it. Caitlyn didn't. However, she ate a lot of food after school, so that could've contributed to the fact that she didn't eat. She never did say whether or not she liked it. Served it with Breakfast Sausage. Might add another egg or two, though. Bake it in the deep dish pie pan.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
We really liked the general taste of this pork tenderloin. However, I think I need to lessen the soy sauce (I used Bragg's as a substitute) because it was too salty. Also, the meat fell apart that I could not cut it like a traditional slice of pork tenderloin. It fell apart into strings and was more like pulled pork. All the kids would eat again, which is a huge accomplishment!

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
My husband and I really liked this meal. My children chose to pick out all the veggies. Otherwise, they ate the chicken and the rice that I served it over. Next time, I'll use less sliced sweet onion (I'm the only one who likes it) and omit the cabbage. However, I'll keep the red pepper and sugar snap peas. I'd like to try adding blanched broccoli and maybe some zucchini and/or mushrooms. I might even add some toasted cashews. Maybe try a tad bit less sugar, too.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
My family liked this recipe. My kids are not into tomato chunks, so I pureed the stewed tomatoes in a blender before adding. I also chopped four red potatoes and two cups of chopped carrots to add with the coconut milk. I did this because my kids eat these when found in soups.

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
The entire family likes the flavor of this dish. After making it a number of times, I have cut the amount of cabbage down to half a head. The kids don't like the stringy soft cabbage as much as the hubby and I. They're more likely to eat this if there's less cabbage.

Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2014
Ryan, Caitlyn, and I really liked this chicken. Brianna and Matthew...no. However, I think it will be better next time. The skewers didn't work well and the chicken wouldn't turn so that we could get good grill marks, so Ryan ended up sliding all the chicken back off the skewers and pan fried the chicken. It ended up more steamed/sauted than grilled. Next time use wider strips of chicken and then try to grill. Bet it will be much better!

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
I made this using the 6 eggs & 2 cups half and half, suggested by another reviewer. It was great and not soggy. The entire family loved it. However, I first tried to use a 9by13 pyrex dish, but all the slices didn't fit. I transferred my slices to a larger casserole dish that I have and all the slices fit. I'm glad I ended up using the larger dish because the bread puffs up while baking and some of the sauce spilled over the side. I can only imagine what happens with a smaller pyrex size. The other change we'll make for next time is to make half the sauce. The dish was too sweet for my family. I felt like I served dessert instead of breakfast. Will use half of the sauce next time and top with pecans to try it a little differently.

Chicken Fajita Melts

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
A few of the family members really liked this and a few just thought it was OK. I'm going to try it again with a different bread since the one I tried was too crusty. By the time I baked it in the oven, the bread's crust got too hard. Maybe that will make all the difference.

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
I think it's just four stars as written, but FIVE stars by doubling the cream. Also, when I ran out of vodka, I used dry vermouth and it also tasted fine.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I liked this (but I LOVE mushrooms) and the rest of the family just thought it was OK. I don't think I cooked the rice enough as it wasn't too creamy. It was tender but not creamy (like I have tasted risotto to be). I think it's my fault, though, as I had never tried risotto before this and I know that there are tricks and tips to making good risotto. My husband said the leftovers got really mushy and he doesn't mind having this again, just not as a leftover.
