Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
Very yummy. I was a little leery of the soy sauce, but it ended up being delicious! Not at all overpowering, but just another interesting dimension to the dish. The recipe doesn't state, but I did wring the excess water from the spinach. My sauce was still just the right consistency...I think it would have been too runny if I hadn't done that. I used part-skim mozzarella and 1% milk and it turned out fine. Only substitution I made was parsley for basil since I'm not a basil fan. Thanks!

Chiles Rellenos Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2006
I've had this in my recipe box for ages and have been dying to try it, but it turns out poblano peppers aren't that easy to find in eastern Massachusetts. When I finally found them at a farmer's market, I snatched them up, and boy am I glad I did! Chiles Rellenos is one of my husband's favorite dishes. This has a similar taste. So good! I cooked the diced chicken with some taco seasoning but otherwise followed the recipe. I used mild salsa, and this wasn't very spicy at all. Even our 12 month old twins enjoyed it! Thanks for the super recipe!

Sauteed Portobellos and Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2006
This was good. I would have rated it a 4, but my husband loved it and I always round up so a 5 it is. I thought there was too much spinach and wished there was more mushroom...I used 10 oz of portobellos. I followed the recipe exactly except I subbed parsley for basil. Thanks for the yummy side dish!

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
Fabulous, as titled. I actually liked these even more than I thought I would. My husband was also a fan. I added garlic powder and some parmesan cheese. Yum! We really like zucchini, a necessity for this recipe as it doesn't taste like a meatball sub but rather like really delicious zucchini. If you like zucchini, this recipe's a winner. Thanks!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
Yum! This had a delightful taste. The pancakes were a little thicker than I'm used to, and maybe didn't come out quite as pretty as some other pancakes as a result. But you can't argue with the taste, which was wonderful. And an easy recipe, too! I threw some fresh blueberries in some, and served with blueberry sauce (from this site). Delicious! Thanks!

Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
Yum, yum! I used ground chicken rather than ground beef, and if we're being honest, used a lot closer to half a pound of colby jack cheese rather than half a cup. Ummmm, cheese! I also added a diced onion to the meat mixture. This was quite good, and a fun idea. I agree with a previous reviewer: try it with the corn tortillas. I'm not normally a big fan of corn tortillas, but they were absolutely fabulous in this. I served this with sour cream and avocado on the side. Delicious! Thanks!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
Zesty-licious!! This was soooo good! I only used 2 chicken breasts, but made a half recipe of sauce. Before I shredded the chicken, it looked too saucy, but it was perfect after I shredded the chicken. I served this over mashed potatoes. I wish we had extra to eat as a sandwich tomorrow. Oh well, next time I'll know to make a full recipe! Thanks for the delightful recipe!

Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
Yummy! I omitted the cilantro (personal preference) and went a little light on the onion. I made this as a side dish for Beef and Bean Chimichangas (from this site), but we ended up just using this as a topping instead. Very tasty, even if it wasn't quite as salad-y as I was expecting by the title of the recipe. It's more like an avocado salsa or chunky guacamole. Whatever you call it, it's good eats! Thanks for the recipe!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
Quite good, although let's just pretend it's called a beef and bean baked burrito. If that's what you're expecting, you won't be disappointed it's not a chimichanga. I fudged the veggie amounts (used 1 onion, 1 red pepper, and 1 can of corn rather than trying to use the exact amounts required in the recipe). Topped these with sour cream and Avocado Salad (from this site). Delicious! Thanks!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
I was going to make an oven pot roast, but I just couldn't bear the thought of the oven on for hours on this hot, muggy day, so I found this recipe. I only had one can of cream of mushroom soup, so I subbed golden mushroom for the second. I added some garlic powder and about 1/2 lb of baby carrots. It turned out so delicious! We're having the leftovers with mashed potatoes tomorrow. Thanks for the easy, tasty recipe!

Cinnamon and Lime Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2006
Delicious! I added extra onion and served with avocado and sour cream. I forgot to add cheese, which I normally put on everything, and I didn't even miss it! Only slight complaint is that the cooking method left the chicken slightly dry. I think I'll add a little chicken broth while baking the chicken next time. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

Goat Cheese and Spinach Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
Wonderful! So so tasty! Only changes I made were to add some garlic powder and onion powder. Oh, and I used 6 tablespoons of cheese, because you can never have too much cheese. My husband commented that these tasted like lamb burgers, and you know what? They kind of do. Like many others have noted, this made 5 burgers. I topped these with sauteed mushrooms and onions. Thanks for the great dinner!

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
You know what the only thing wrong with this recipe was? That I didn't make more! It was sooooo good! I even (purposely) overcooked the broccoli so it would be soft enough for my 12 month old boys to eat. It was still amazing! Thanks for the fabulous recipe!

Cheesy Polenta

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
Really good! I've never made polenta before and this was so easy. I garnished the top with some extra cheddar, and it was super yummy. In the future, I think I'll put a bunch of cheddar on top...it kind of melts into the top of the polenta. My 11 month old babies loved this, as did my husband. A real crowd pleaser! Thanks for the recipe!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I love these! They turn out more like cake when I make it, but it's the best cake I've ever had! And the frosting is delightful as well. Make sure you don't drain the shredded zucchini...include all the liquid!

Cavatappi with Spinach, Garbanzo Beans, and Feta

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
I rarely get such an exuberant response from my husband about meals I make...he couldn't stop raving about how good this was! And, it was so quick and easy to make, too...a perfect recipe! I followed other reviewers' suggestions and added the chickpeas to the boiling pasta for 5 minutes. I also garnished with red pepper flakes, which I'd highly recommend; it really made the dish. Also, I followed the recipe for lemon juice amount, but both my husband and I used our lemon garnishes to add more lemon juice. In the future, I'd probably double the lemon amount. One other note: 8 cups cooked cavatappi is a one pound box. I used one 9 oz. bag of spinach...not sure if that was 8 cups or not but it seemed right. Thanks for the recipe!

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
Very yummy in an understated way. The boursin flavor is not very strong, but the resulting dish is still delicious. Like some other reviewers, I used the garlic and herb boursin as I don't like the cracked pepper boursin. However, after tasting the sauce, I did add some cracked pepper. I cut the asparagus into pieces and mixed it with the sauce. Other reviewers complained the sauce was thin so I added a teaspoon of flour as I was sauteeing the mushrooms. The sauce still was a bit thin, but if you let it sit for about 5 minutes after mixing in the pasta, it thickens right up. We served this as a main dish, and found the taste a little too mild but both my husband and I agreed this would be a really phenomenal side dish. Thanks for the recipe!

Queenie's Killer Tomato Bagel Sandwich

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
I used to eat this all the time in college and forgot all about it until I came across this recipe. When I saw beautiful plum tomatoes at the farmer's market, I knew today would be the day for this recipe. I substituted dried parsley for the basil (personal preference) and it was delicious. Also fantastic with scallion cream cheese, I seem to recall. Thanks for posting and letting me relive a bit of my youth!

Baked Pineapple

Reviewed: May 17, 2006
Definitely a 5 star recipe. Quite good! I made it exactly following the directions and it was superb. I can see why other reviewers recommend tidbits...the chunks were a little big. And, I think next time I make it I'll cut back on the butter by a tablespoon and see how it comes out. My adventurous husband took one bite and said, "interesting". When I asked to clarify if it was interesting good or interesting bad, he replied that he thought it was going to be mac and cheese, but once he got over the surprise of it being pineapple, he really liked it. So if you're serving to a crowd, you might want to make sure the dish is labeled! Thanks for the delightful recipe.

Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
This was even yummier than I thought it would be. Soooo good! I followed the recipe exactly and we really enjoyed it. Both my husband and I probably would have liked it a little spicier, but I wanted to give little bites to our 10 month olds (they loved it as well!) so I didn't substitute anything spicy. I found this recipe just to use up a large can of black beans that I opened yesterday and didn't use much of, and I expected to like it but not love it. Well, we were pleasantly surprised...this is certainly a recipe where the whole is more than the sum of the parts! I garnished with additional tomato, green onions, sour cream, and some extra filling. Quite delicious, thanks!
