Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Has been a favorite of mine for years. Double the recipe and cut boneless breasts into large bite size pieces and it's great for 8-10. Serve over pasta or rice. The wine offers a gourmet touch.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
Served this for my husband's birthday party. Fruity and intense. We did not dilute with carbonated anything and served over ice. WOW! Folks are still talking about the Sangria served and it's been 2 years since.

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
These burgers are EXCELLENT!!!. The flavor combinations of onion, garlic, yellow pepper and cumin are a delight to the tastebuds. Perfect balance with a subtile kick. Wonderful for vegetarian and meat eaters alike. Get ready for the ooohs and ahhhs. This is top of my list for any burger but hey, I'm a vegetarian. :)

Guilt-Free Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Served this for health minded friends at a dinner I had last night. When I told them no fat was added they could not believe it. Serveral asked the the recipe. I did add about 2/3 cup of mini semi sweet chocolate morsels to the batter before baking. An instant favorite! Thank you.

Mostaccioli with Spinach and Feta

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
This is so easy, so healthy and delicious. I used fat free feta as recommended by others, increased the garlic to 3 cloves ( one can never have too much fresh garlic) and found it unnecessary to chop the spinach (just dump it in and save scores of time). I was very pleased and to quote my husband who has a discriminating palate, " ....this is definately a home run!" I can see throwing in some grilled chicken or shrimp to make a hearty crowd pleasing meal.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Every time I make these people ask for the recipe. The only change I made was the addition of 3/4 cup shredded coconut. An absolute favorite. Freezes very well but rarely last long enough to freeze. Great for an in-hand healthy breakfast on the go.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
This is a great one dish meal for a casual supper. I added chopped fresh mushrooms to the sauteed ions and sauteed the carrots with some frozen green peas for color and did not mash but layered them over the beef layer. Potatoes were a bit stiff so I added a little milk to give it beter spreadability on the top. Make sure to use sharp cheddar. Crumbled cooked bacon on the top gives this dish a delicious finish.

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This is a wonderful soup. It calls for some of my favorite ingredients, those found in the healthy Mediterranean diet. Everyone loved it, especially my husband who enjoys a homemade and hearty one dish meal he can eat with a spoon. This will be top of my favorites list and one I will make again and again. Thank you!

Turkey Burger Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
I added 1 box frozen chopped spinach, thawed squeezed dry, and 1 small pkg. fresh mushrooms coarsly chopped to the turkey and onion mixture (next time will add 2 cloves minced garlic). You need to salt and pepper the turkey mixture to taste. I used white cheddar for the cheese and added 1/4 tsp.nutmeg to the egg mixture before pouring over the top of the pie. Excellent recipe and a great base for all sorts of additions to make it unique.

Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
I prepared this strictly by the recipe with no changes and it was fantastic. I agree with another rating that this cake improves if prepared a day ahead as the outer "crust" moistens up and flavors meld together even better. I used the leftover pineapple juice to prepare the glaze which offered a nice tangy flavor. Very impressive presentation especially on a tiered cake plate with a glass lid. Next time will try to reduce the fat grams by substituting some apple sauce as suggested by another cook.

Lemon Barbeque Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
This recipe is sure to please. It is a dressier way to prepare meatloaf and is our family's favorite. The topping is very special and spicy. I first saw this recipe over 30 years ago using 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef and formed into 6 individual loaves. These brown very nicely and with the sauce on top and lemon garnish the presentation is very nice. If in a hurry the meat mixture can be formed into a single ring and cooked in the microwave for about 10 minutes for 1 1/2 lb. beef, topping with the sauce after about 5 minutes. Garnish with lemon after cooking.

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I tripled the recipe for a large engagement party. I generously added prepared garlic and served this with rice chips and pita chips in a silver chafing dish. Very elegant presentation. I recieved many compliments on this one. The bacon offers a special twist. The most time consuming part of the preparation was cooking the bacon which I did in the microwave on paper towels to insure crispness. A sure keeper and definate crowd pleaser!

Cranberry Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
Oh my goodness! This is the best tea bread I remember baking or eating in my 35 years of cooking. That's pretty strong. The full size cranberries shout with tart flavor in every bite. The orange undertones are perfect. Problem is that it is gone all too soon. A GREAT gift for anyone, especially during the holidays!

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
This makes a beautiful pie. I make my own oil pastry crust but whatever crust recipe you choose this will be a sumpiously delicious offering. Freezes well. If you do freeze, bake frozen and add an extra 30 minutes to the cook time.

Perfect Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Indeed the best turkey I have ever prepared in my 25+ years of hosting Thanksgiving. My husband and I share the responsibility. We did it this year in a turkey roaster and omitted the wine soley by accident. The drippings are perfectly seasoned for gravy. There were no leftovers. This was a first!!

Blueberry Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2006
truly the best coffee cake I've ever made. It recieved great raves from my bible study group. I used frozen berries making the batter stiff and spreading in the pan a bit challenging butit did not affect the end result. Spectacular!!
