Edamame Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
I have made this recipe several times now and it just gets better every time. We find so many ways to eat it. I will eat it cold right out of the fridge, or I warm it up and just eat it by the spoonful. There is so much fiber in it that it fills you up quickly. I just eat a few spoonfuls as a snack. You can also warm it up and mix in a little dab of sour cream - awesome! I made chicken in the crock pot, shredded it and put the chicken, with this bean mixture, and sour cream into a soft tortilla - so good. We top baked potatoes with this as well. SO many ways to use it. The first time I made it I followed the directions as is except I did not include cilantro - my family doesn't like it. After that I made only one change - I reduced the amount of salt. I only use 1/2 teaspoon. One teaspoon was a bit too much for us. I would start with 1/2 teaspoon, taste it and add more if you want. I also add the cumin and salt to the lime juice and then mix it in with the beans, I think the dry ingredients blend better when you wix it with the lime juice first.

Campbell's Kitchen French Onion Burgers

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Don't change a thing. Recipe is perfect the way it is! SO good! My husband and I absolutely loved them. My husband cooked the burgers on the grill until they were medium and then we put them in the soup in a sauce pan on the stove for about 5 minutes, topped with american cheese and put on a bun. We spooned a little extra sauce on top and served them with some soup in a ramekin on the side. To die for. I am having a BBQ soon and we are going to try to make these as mini sliders.

Best Ever Sausage with Peppers, Onions, and Beer!

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
Excellent recipe and great for a party. I don't like cilantro so I omitted that but everything else was the same. Just a bit of warning...I made this with the hot sauce as listed and it was very spicy. In fact, I actually ended up making a second batch without the hot sauce because I was making it for a party and thought it may not appeal to everyone if it was too spicy. We love the spice - but I would add gradually if you're serving this to others.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs (Suan T'ien Niu Jou Po Lo La Tzu)

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
I made this recipe almost as is and my husband and I loved it. I will definitely make again. I didn't see the need for the oil - so I omitted that and I steamed the veggies a bit before adding to the sauce because we prefer them a bit softer. Next time I may try to reduce the amount of sugar. We watch our calories and 1 cup is a lot of sugar. But overall excellent recipe and will definitely make again.

Slaw-mmin' Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
My husband and I didn't like this recipe at all. I didn't follow it exactly - I used our favorite store-bought hummus. Not sure if the recipe would be better with the recipe's hummus. I thought it looked kind of bland but it got such great reviews so I decided to try it. I really wanted to like it but it just didn't have much flavor. My husband said it was boring and was trying to find things to dip it in. Sorry!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
Very good!!! I changed a few things - I don't like breading so I skipped that all together and just lightly browned the chicken in 2 TBS of oil and buttter (each) and a clove of garlic. I removeded the chicken and put it in a baking dish with some marsala wine and baked until finished. I added the marsala wine (I used dry wine), another TBS of butter and mushrooms to the pan. I cooked it for about 1/2 an hour and it was good but I like my marsala a bit sweeter - so I added about 2 TBS of brown sugar - AWESOME! Definitely makes it so much better - my husband raved! I used a lot of wine - I say just eyeball it and plan on using most of the bottle.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
Great recipe! I didn't brown the vegetables - I didn't use butter at all and didn't miss it. I did not use celery and used one regular potato and one sweet potato. I think next time I'll just use the sweet potatoes - would add extra flavor. I added a bit of red pepper for some spice. I put a drop of low fat sour cream on each serving - delicious! Will definitely make again!
