Excellent Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
I made my best broccoli cheese soup ever using this recipe ... with a few tweaks. Like others, I like my soup thicker and richer. I increased the butter and flour, making substantially more roux for added thickness. Also, instead of milk I used light cream. I had colby jack on hand and used that instead of regular cheddar, along with the processed cheese the recipe calls for. I've sworn off meat, so used vegetable broth rather than chicken broth. Also, like other reviewers, I doubled the broccoli. That sounds like a lot of changes, but mostly I was just adjusting the relative amounts of the various ingredients. This is an outstanding recipe, producing the tastiest broccoli cheese I've ever had. Try this ... you won't be disappointed.

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
This is a summer favorite. I use cheddar instead of cheese food, and substitute hot Italian sausage for the pork sausage to give it an extra kick. I do not use canned mushrooms, but instead add sliced black olives and sliced water chestnuts. Delicious.

Brandied Shrimp with Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2012
I made this exactly as written ... with one exception. I did not ignite the brandy. It was terrific. We'll have this often.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
Terrific recipe! I made some adjustments based on other reviews. I used equal parts chicken stock (instead of water) and soup, added chopped celery, and seasoned the chicken with garlic powder, paprika and cumin. I put the biscuit dough in the slow cooker about 90 minutes before serving, and added frozen mixed vegetables 30 minutes before serving. This recipe is simple and simply delicious.
