Artichoke Bruschetta

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
WOW! These are so good! We made them last night and have vowed to take them to the next party or event so we can impress everyone. We made the receipe exactly as written, however when we do it again we will add some tomatoe's and a black olive to the top of each. I just can't imagine why some reviewers felt that these were bland...the only thing that I can think of is that unmarinated hearts were used. The batch that we made was both full in flavor and delicious. I'm SOOO happy to have found this recipe. Thank you, thank you, thank you Roxanne!

Cheese Ravioli with Three Pepper Topping

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2003
Excellent! I made it a 4 pepper dish and used red, yellow, orange, and green peppers. I also added fresh parsley and a little bit of garlic powder. The red pepper flakes are necessary to bring out the flavor in this dish. We were very pleased with the results and will make this healthy dish often.

Classic Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2003
Not a bad soup. But not the best I've ever had either. I followed the recipe exactly as written. But, at the end, I found myself wanting more... flavor or something...

Vegetable Couscous

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2003
A tremendous 5! I actually followed the recipe pretty much exactly as written except; I used one large stalk of celery, ½ yellow pepper and ½ red pepper and I’m pretty sure that these amounted up to slightly more than the quantity in which the recipe called for. I also used ¼ white onion and not a spoon messurement. But it was FABULOUS! Thank you very much…I can’t wait to make again. And if you find this recipe, ADD IT TO YOUR BOX...because it's hard to find again. Just typing in "couscous" doesn't always pull it up. I was afraid I'd lost it! VERY GOOD.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
OHMYGOSH! These were the best enchilada’s I’ve ever made!!! And was told the best others have ever eaten.This is what I did for those who like suggestions and tips: Taking heed of the advise of other users, I planned on making more sauce from the beginning. So I used a package of boneless/skinless Chicken thighs (dark meat for more flavor) and one large bone-in split chicken breast. I coated all with Fajita seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Then I browned them along with chopped white onions in a pan in a little bit of olive oil on each side, added some water and chicken bullion to the pan, and cooked them until done. I then cut them up (careful to remove all bones from breast) and used that for the meat filling. I also added the onions that cooked with the chicken to the mix. As for the sauce: I dbl'd all ingrediants. I used two cans of soup one was crm chick/crm shroom combined and one was just crm shrooms. I also added 2 cans of mushrooms pieces, and an extra can of chili's. That was about all of the changes I made, except in addition to cheddar cheese, I also added a shredded white cheese on top (Monterey-jack works well, but I used an authentic Mexican variety that can be found in Texas). The sauce was enough to make about 9-10 enchiladas, each amply stuffed. EXCELLENT! (I also used fresh made tortilla's that you can find in some grocery stores, but not sure if that had any impact or not.) I cannot wait to make these AGAIN!!!

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2003
This was pretty good. I did follow the recommendations of Katzen below and found them to be very benefical. However, in addition I added some fresh cilantro. But for a good, low fat, high fiber, recipe...you can't go wrong. It was in the crock for 6 hours.

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
I see that many people really enjoyed this dish. However we found it to be just O.K. I took some advise from past reviews and added garlic and onions. I did use sliced fresh mushrooms, as opposed to canned, which turned out well. But the overall dish just wasn't fabulous. I would not serve this at a dinner party. But it was ok for just us family. IF I make this again, I will use chicken thighs for better consistency and flavor. I served this over buttered pasta with fresh parsley. But I would suggest white rice. Garlic bread did pair nicely.

Can't Miss Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2003
This was just OK. I would suggest using chive onions for a little more flavor...or if not, perhaps the addition of dill would help. It wasn't very flavorful, but if it were coupled as a side dish or side salad to a main course that was abundant in flavor, it could pair ok. I would still consider adding a bit of sourcream to the plain yogart...

Muenster Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2003
If there were a way to mark 4 1/2 stars this would be it. But I tend to reserve 5 stars for the simply outstanding. However this receipe is very, very good. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs as that is what I had on hand. I used egg instead of milk for the coating, then dipped each thigh into the breadcrumbs. I seasoned my own breadcrumbs with basil, oregano, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. I then browned each thigh in a tad bit of butter. I set them in the baking pan ontop of some frozen green peas. I also added some chopped fresh green onions in addition to the mushrooms for extra flavor. Served over rice, this was a crowd pleaser.

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
This was very good. I also added black and green olives. Although I wouldn't say that this was "to die for" sauce, I will be making it again and again.

Cornish Hen Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2002
This was excellent! I was very surprised. It looked like the hen wouldn't supply enough meat for all of the veggies that this receipe calls for. But alas, do not let it fool you. This was perfect. The best homeade chicken/hen soup I've ever had. I did use more than dbl the broth to make it real juicy. Also, used Egg Noodles, and it was WONDERFUL. I spiced it up with salt, pepper, some greek seasonings, and a little bit of garlic powder. Very, very good. Thank you!

Angel's Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2002
This was wonderful! It is now my most favorite pasta dish. I changed a couple of things: I used 4 Roma tomato's. I also used Bow Tie pasta as the veggie's blend much better with Bow Tie's than with small Angel Hair. But I LOVED it so much I made it twice in two days!!!! EXCELLENT!

Winter Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2002
I found this to be a very good soup. However, I made a few changes because I wanted to make a lot. So I used 1 1/2 cups Lentils, 3 celery, 2 garlic cloves, added 2 14 oz cans of petite diced tomato's with Jalapeno's for some zest, a whole head of cabbage, 6 carrots, 5 cups of organic free-range chicken broth, and 4 cups of water. I dbl'd the spices and added a Greek-Allspice. I ended up with a big, delicious, pot of Lentil's and veggi's. Wonderful, healthy, and low in fat. Cant go wrong with that!!!!

Fat-Free Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2002
This was the best version of the "low-fat/fat-free" veggie soup receipe that I have found. I was surprised at the excellent addition the dill made. I added some extra spices (a greek all-spice combination), and some petite diced tomato's with Jalapeno's for an extra kick! Very, very good. RAVE reviews from friends and family.
