Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
Yummy! I had to sub dried green spilt peas. Because we had to go out for a few hours right before dinner, I transferred the peas to a crock pot when it was time to add the rice. Layered rice, subbed vegetable broth for water to cover, then added the cooked onions. Cooked on high for a few hours. I was afraid I'd have split pea soup but the consistency of the peas was good. Needed more broth to make the rice a little softer though, I think. The onions weren't too mushy this way, either. They were so good if make more of them next time. Husband loved this and kept going back for more helpings, and he normally doesn't like peas. Hardly any leftovers. I know I subbed the main ingredient (didn't have lentils on hand) but I'm sure this recipe is delicious as written, too! Will definitely try again!

Slow Cooker Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
Great soup! My husband had 4 bowls, my young boys and mom loved it too! Here's my changes: didnt have celery so i used celery flakes, seeds, celery salt instead. 3 oz tomato paste instead of tomatoes (might use more next time- tomato flavor wasnt detectable) about 2 cups homemade beef broth and 2 cups chicken broth, then another 4 cups at the end! (I don't like stew-like consistency). I didn't have green peppers. Subbed fresh basil because I had it (it added another texture too). I also threw in a little uncooked leftover penne pasta near the end. What I'd change: cook the onion on the pan first after the sausage. It might be my fault because the beef broth was frozen (I had to cook the soup longer) but my onions were still a little crunchy. It was ok and gave texture but not my best liking. But like I said might not be the case when cooked according the recipe! Still next time I'd sauté them first.

Breaded Chicken Limone

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2014
Delicious! My husband (who is a bit of a food snob) said "excellent!" It made Brussels sprouts good! I loved the touch of cayenne pepper. I did do some things differently after reading the reviews. I only used about 3/4 tbsp lemon juice (what I squeezed from one very small lemon) and 1 cube of sugar. Fresh sprouts too. Didn't flatten chicken. Used almost 3/4 cups of Chardonnay that I had leftover (replacing most of the water). Didn't have Parmesan so I used cheddar. Added a little (like 1 tsp) cream cheese just for kicks. This recipe took a lot of prepping (for me) but was worth it for a yummy dinner. I learned something very valuable with the dipping of the chicken in flour first, too- it makes the egg stick instead of sliding off (like Ive experienced with other recipes). Lastly- I had to sub rice flour and FYI it worked :)

Tomato Florentine Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
Amazing, amazing soup!!! My two year old ate it up faster than he's ever eaten anything!!! I couldn't believe it. His little brother liked it, too! The use of tomato paste is genius- it gives the soup a rich, "tomato soup" flavor which you don't get with the canned tomatoes that soup recipes usually seem to call for. I'll use it in my tomato-ish soups from now on. That being said, I did make modifications (per recommendations in other reviews). I only used about 4-5 oz tomato paste, and even then I used way more broth to get the typical soup broth consistency. In the end 3 cups beef broth and 4 cups chicken broth. I cooked it in the crockpot to make the veggies nice and soft (adding uncooked pasta about 1 1/2 before finish time). The broth reduced quite a bit. I added basil per another review (1/8 tsp). Used same amount of nutmeg. About 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Didn't have squash- about doubled the carrots instead. And only one tsp sugar. Served the soup as the first course while grilled cheese sandwiches for the second cooked in the toaster oven. Delicious and filling pairing! Definitely bookmarking this recipe for future use!

Risotto with Butternut Squash and White Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
I followed the cooking directions but subbed a lot of ingredients I needed to use/had on hand: Israeli couscous for rice, yellow/zucchini squash, cooked lentil beans and left out the tomato. Yummy, yummy, yummy! Takes some patience and the ability to watch closely (next time I'd try to time it so at least one of my kids is sleeping) but it didn't seem to take as long as previous risotto recipes both my husband and I have tried.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Yummy! Served like a salad on a bed of romaine that I needed to use up. Made my own hoisin sauce and crispy rice noodles, grated carrots. A lot of work and made a messy kitchen but everybody loved it! Skipped pickled ginger

Slow Cooker Hungarian Goulash

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
Very good. My boys loved it and its great because the one with only 5 teeth could eat too with almost no extra prep (save cutting his noodles in half). I subbed ground beef, added celery and a little grated carrot that had on hand. Two other adult family members enjoyed it, too! I found I should have doubled the amount of pasta, though. Would add either more garlic salt or use regular salt in addition, next time, too

Bacon Wrapped Bratwurst

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
Really good but next time I need to use about 1/4 the amount of cayenne, maybe less! And I like hot :)
