Cream of Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2015
This is wonderful for those that love their Blue Cheese. I did half the recipe, since it is just me right now. As far as changes really none, just a couple of subs., butter for the margarine and half-half for the non-dairy creamer. They worked well. I will say, it is very easy and tasty. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is that I thought the Blue Cheese over powered the zucchini just a bit(even though I love my Blue Cheese) I just wanted a touch more zucchini flavor to come through.

White Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
I really enjoyed this new taste of pizza. I will make again. I used a Whole Wheat BOBOLI crust and only used 1/2 the sausage (what I had on hand)and 1/2 the onion just because I thought it would be enough for the amount of sausage used, but the same full 1/2 cup of Alfredo that it called for. I used mozzarella shredded(what I had). Nice change, look forward to it again.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
It was good but we think that we like this kind of dish better with sausage, instead of ham. If I make again I will use some of my own cooked ham instead of the chopped packaged ham that I used this time. I will say that I did like the potato soup and sour cream flavor though.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2015
We love this cornbread! My daughter even said, Why don't we make cornbread more often? This really is easy and doesn't take that long. After making this one, I am asking the same question. It is definitely a 5 star all alone. I did cute back to just a 1/2 cup of sugar as I don't like the sweet as some do. It was just right. As a side note, we've added a little cheese and some minced jalapenos and it is still good. This is a keeper to do with what you will.

Simple and Delicious Kale Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
This was a nice change from the other kale soups that I make like (Olive Garden's which I prefer), but welcomed the change of flavors this one gave. I pretty much kept to the recipe but did use some cherry tomatoes for the small tomato (what I had on hand) and I did add a clove of garlic while sauteing the onion. I did cook a little longer at the end, just because I wanted the kale cooked a bit more.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2014
Ok, I have to say these were very tender done this way but watch out, and don't overcook the sauce. It can burn being in the pot so long. I try and stay as close to a recipe as I can the first time to rate so the only small adjustments I made were, I used light brown sugar for the brown sugar and I had Thai Chili Garlic Paste(I decreased and added water to make sauce) for the Chili Sauce and left out the hot pepper sauce because of the heat here. Glad I did, this was still pretty spicy. I also cut back just a little on the ketchup. So I didn't have any additions or subtractions, just adjustments. I'm not using Thai Chili next time. haha

White Chili I

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2014
I pretty much try to stick to a recipe the first time around to really be able to rate correctly, so the only change I made here was to decrease the broth by 1 cup and I added the entire can of beans in(no rinsing). I made this last night and I would say a 4 but had leftovers today and wow, definitely a 5. If you can make a day ahead, do it and stick to the recipe, it's great. I mixed the cheese in and it worked.

Kielbasa Kale Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2014
I halved the recipe but did add more sausage(12 oz pkg). I browned it in pan and then set aside. I did use ckn broth for water and sauteed onion and garlic to add to broth for potatoes. Glad I did, or else the flavor would have been bland. You can mash the potatoes right in the broth. Ended up thick so I had to add water. If I make again, I'll have to add more onion and garlic.

Creamy Zucchini and Spinach Rigatoni

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2014
This was yummy, yes, a little cheesy but hey. The zucchini and spinach really added a great taste. Not sure how a couple of the comments said it was bland. I didn't think so at all. They must have left something out or added something extra. I used Veggie Rotini and my zucchini were a bit small so I used 2. Can't wait to taste it tomorrow after hearing how it tasted as leftovers. I will say if you're worried about so much cheese you could leave out the 1/2 cup mozz or even cut back some on the parm inside the dish and you'll still have enough cheese on top for the taste. Make sure you cook out the flour some or you'll have a floury taste.

Grilled Mushroom and Swiss

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
Just made for lunch and it was yummy. I used rye bread which worked really well and I used baby Swiss. While sauteing the mushrooms and spinach I did add just a little extra since they shrunk up a bit and my bread slices were larger than normal. A little sprinkle of garlic salt to the saute was nice also.

Deliciosa Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
This salsa is tasty but a little too spicy for me even though I didn't use the Serrano pepper and used 2 jalapenos from some that I had canned. I also like my salsa a little thicker. Next time I will probably only use one pepper and maybe only the juice from a smaller lime or just half of a large one so it's not so liquidity. It's worth the try if you're looking for a tasty Verde salsa.

Chris's Incredible Italian Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
The Best Meatloaf I have ever had!! I kept to the recipe as it called, no subs, no additions. I promise you won't have any of the problems that others have said if you stick to it. Can't taste the oats, smoke not over powering and it only took the 60 mins. I think those that had problems were those that made changes. I do also agree with many others, Great for Meatballs!

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
I thought this was a very good soup. The flavor of the roasted cauliflower really came through. I kept to the recipe except that I doubled the Sherry. After using the hand mixer the soup was very thick, so I had to add some more broth and milk. Next time I think I will roast some garlic also. Don't leave out the Sherry, it really is nice. ***I know this might sound weird but the next day when I took it out of the fridge, it had really become thick. I ate it w/o heating it up or adding liquid and it tasted almost like eating cream of wheat. I ate it for breakfast. Sounds weird, but tasted good.

Penne with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2014
I love the mushrooms. I did use baby portabellas and 2 big cloves of garlic, this added more flavor. I also used some of the pasta water and a little milk to add to the sauce to make it creamier.

Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
I like to stick to the recipe the first time and then make changes. So glad I did, this was so good and so easy. I didn't have the "optional" leeks but hope next time to add them. I had organic chicken broth and for the mushrooms, I used 1/2lb baby bellas and 1-1/2lb white buttons. At the end I did use a hand mixer to smooth out about half of it. I thought this was very flavorful. Didn't even have to add the rice mix as noted in the footnotes as a possible addition.

Kielbasa with Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2014
This is so easy and so good! I first cooked just as stated, but it's just me so I had a lot to play with. So I decided to try it a couple of other ways as per some other comments. 1st way I did as called for, great. 2nd way I added Dijon mustard(others called for spicy but I went with this). It did add a nice touch. 3rd way I added the Dijon and then sprinkled parm on top. Great also. Any of these ways are great so go as you like. I will add, I had baby brussel sprouts so I just cut in half but if yours are bigger, maybe you should quarter. You could also cover for the last 10 mins if you need the sprouts softer, your preference. Loved all 3!

CindyD's Somewhat Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2014
I thought this chicken ended up tasting very nice and I mine did have a nice crispness to it. I did do the first 10 mins higher and then moved to a much lower temp for the rest of the time. I didn't have to cook a full 20 mins on 2nd side, so be careful. Adjust to the size of your chicken. I did also add some extra salt per other comments and was just a little heavy handed on the other spices too, flavor was nice and chicken moist. Gave a 4 only because of the few changes I made, otherwise a 5.
