Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
UPDATE: I've made the original and with substitutions. This is hands down MUCH better with cider, rather than balsamic vinegar. The cider doesn't mask the bright veggie colors and doesn't overpower with flavor. You can really be creative with this recipe and still turn out a beautiful salad. For example, I combined this recipe with another by adding: 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons of honey, 4 thin ribs celery - thinly sliced (3/4 cup), 2 carrots - peeled & finely diced (3/4 cup). I also substituted cider vinegar for balsamic. Still incredible.

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
We could not find apple jelly and substituted apple/cranberry butter. Worked out great. The pork was a bit dry, but the gravy helped. We served it with scalloped potatoes.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
We used frozen green beans, cooked in boiling water and drained. They were as bright green and crisp as fresh ones. The walnut oil added a light flavor - not too greasy. However, it definitely needed salt and pepper.

Roasted Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
A nice addition to Christmas dinner. If you're choosing to drizzle with balsamic vinegar, use it sparingly!

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
Excellent (but I only give 5 stars when I don't make changes). I seasoned the chicken while cooking. I also used finely chopped walnuts instead of pecans, took out the green pepper, and served it on a bed of romaine leaves with a roll on the side.

Zesty Chicken Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Really, it was "the Best". I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I used Italian panko breadcrumbs b/c I didn't have the regular ones on hand. We made it a real tex-mex meal by serving it with sweet corn, chips and salsa. A real kid-pleaser.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Made this for our neighbor's family & it got rave reviews. Here are our changes: - Dried Italian Herbs (Penzey's) instead of Fresh Basil - One Small Can Diced Tomatoes AND Fresh Diced Tomatoes to equal equivalent canned - Pasta Sauce instead of Tomato Paste - No Boil Lasagna Noodles with Extra Water to compensate - Half Low-Fat Cottage Cheese and Half Ricotta Cheese to equal equivalent Ricotta - Cook 20 minutes uncovered then...- Cook one hour covered with foil to prevent edges from burning Cook AT LEAST 90 minutes

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
The sirolin was a little tough. Would've preferred a more tender cut of meat. We used 3-cheese pasta sauce instead of tomato sauce. We served over whole wheat noodles & could not taste the "grain", as the sauce was outstanding.

Chicken and Artichokes

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Excellent! I made changes b/c of lack of ingredients; no sherry, no paprika. I also took advice from all the other reviews & after pounding my chicken I seasoned it with Penzey's Florida Seasoned Pepper (has lemon peel and other citric). I sauteed the mushrooms in garlic-infused olive oil and 2 pressed garlic cloves. I also added an additional 3/4 cup chicken broth before baking uncovered. Served over angel hair pasta. YUUMMM!

Jazzed-Up Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
We used Trader Joe's boxed organic gravy. This was lighter in color than I'm used to. I did not like it too much, until we mixed it with the gravy we made from Easy Herb Roasted Turkey drippings. THEN it was excellent.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This is the only stuffing I will be making from now on. However, I couldn't rate it as "the best" b/c we added an extra cup of chicken broth before baking (it just seemed too dry with only one).

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
The best Thanksgiving turkey I've had in years. it was so moist and flavorful. We put some of the herb mixture under the skin. We cooked it breast side up covered for half the time and breast side down uncovered for half the time. Make sure you use a meat thermometer and it will not be overdone!

Baked Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
AMAZING! I doubled the garlic and instead of using prepared breadcrumbs I made my own with Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Entertainment Crackers. Juicy, tasty & fast.

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
I'm not a big red meat eater, but these were very tender. My husband loved them. Not sure why the "German" is in the name.
