Philly Steak Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
This was really tasty and easy. Since it is only two of us at home, I used a couple skirt steaks instead of the flank, thinly sliced on the bias. I used a combination of romaine hearts and spinach for better nutrition. My husband thought the curly fries were wierd in a salad, but since he cleaned his plate, I guess it wasn't too much of an oddity! I am keeping this one to serve for guests because it tastes good, and seems healthy and is unusual.

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
made this for two. I came home later than expected one night and found what I had planned to be 2 pork chops for dinner turned into only one.The ingredients and flavors were exactly what I was looking for!!! I had one very large boneless sirloin chop and one very large sweet potato. Cut them both into 1/2 inch chunks. I mixed salt and pepper togethr and tossedthe pork cubes in it. Sauteed the onion(reached a little carmelizing point) and potatoes (browned outside, but not done) and pork (patially browned), tossed in the apples to saute quickly. Topped with the brown sugar. Put it all in the oven for 1/2 hour. It was great!!! Served it with steamed brocolli. Nice colors and flavors!!

Roasted Rosemary Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
We love roasted vegetables in any combination and this is good!!! My rosemary plants were going crazy, and bought a head of cauliflower planning for something else that fell thru....this fit the bill! as another reviewer said, any veggies could be added, and yes you have to watch it, but one reviewer did like me - and i alwasy do this - roast until the veggies have color - you might think they are not done, but pull them anyway and give em a zap in the microwave. the microwave actually intesifies the flavors since the roasting has taken the vitals of the veggies to carmelization. microwave cooks from the inside out, so all that goodness stuck inside gets a chance to improve itself while your veggies are heating up

Dutch Babies II

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
I grew up having Swedish Pancakes on Christmas day. My mom's version was basically a crepe filled with ligonberries. I found a recipe similar to this years ago and lost it. The flavor and consistentcy of the pancake were more to my liking of the crepes my mother made. I top ours with raspbery jam, a lemon squeeze and need the white fluff of confectioner's sugar. All my taste buds jump at the "old flavors" of my mothers, but within our current budget and availability.

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This was so simple and delicious! I had bought a butternut squash, never having cooked one before, to give me inspiration. Next day, a friend called and said she had a sack full ofpears that she would never use and would I want them? Bingo - Hubby was a bit skeptical thnking it would taste bland, but really good flavor. I took the advice of others and roasted the squash, made it easier and tastier (smpled the roasted squash as I was scooping it out!)I did not have any heavy whipping cream, but had a half block of cream cheese. Read a couple other recipes and found one that used cream cheese for thickening, so I addede that. NIce creaminess, color.I served this with the Real N'Awlans Muffaletta on this site. Soup and Sandwich and darn good!

Seattle Dutch Babies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
this has been a staple for Christmas morning in our home for years. While it is baking, we'd check out the stockings or open a special gift. I have topped them with ligonberries (a compromise for my Swedish background) when available. Or homemade raspberry jam or whatever homemade jam was in the pantry!!! Powdered sugar a must! (just for the effect on a snowy holiday morning!)

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
i have used the proportions in this recipe including the baking soda for every kind of cold tea for summer months. sometimes i use Constant Comment, sometimes i use green tea, somtimes a fruity Celestial Seasonings. i ontinue to use the bakiing soda because it does chse off the bitterness regardless of the leaves being used. and it adds that bit of saltiness that every sweet thing needs to make it work. i really wanted a good raspberry tea rx, used this and a few drops of raspberry extract. half a gallon gone in a few hours, and it was just me!!!

Flathead Cherry Compote

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
flathead cherries are a local favorite. I am often torn as to just eating them fresh since we can only savor them maybe 2 months out of the year or buying enough at peak to freeze or preserve. This is a great recipe for fresh, but I just tried it with some cherries I had fresh frozen. Summer in the middle of February. GREAT!

Chilled Lemonade Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
This was SO easy and tasty. Great for a hot summer night when someone else in the household ate all the ice cream and forgot to replace it. Grandkids loved it. used the rest of lemonade can to make lemonade with 1/3 less water. I grated the lemon rind, but, will probably leave it out next time and use as a garnish instead. The creamy texture with the chewy bits didn't work for me. May try similar concocotions with other frozenjuice blends and jellos.

Scalloped Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
The original version of this recipe was something my mom used to make. I made it once for my husband and he didn't like it. Then I saw something similar on a cooking show but with some additions. The additions were garlic, basil and cheese. I love the original. Hubby loved the morphed version. Each is a great way to showcase fresh out of the garden tomatoes. And in mid winter, try it with canned diced tomatoes. takes you right back to summer!!!

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
I got home later than expected one night and had to fix something quick. Had bought fresh basil for another meal, but so glad to have it on hand!!! This was tasty and healthy and fast!!! Used diced tomatoes that were on hand. Used immersion blender to make it less chunky. Topped with fresh grated parmesan reggiano, served with baguette sliced and green salad. This is a keeper for us!!! always have ingredients even if I don't have fresh basil, I have dried, and can put this together in no time and it tastes FRESH - gonna share this with my gardening buddies too that work with me to trade garden overflow!!!

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I am never buying canned refried again. this is great, tasty and better for us!!. I freeze in bags according to how I might use it, basically, if I were to buy a can, I freeze about 2 cups in a container or freezer bag. Easy to make up, throw the beans in the crockpot Saturday night. Make something using them for Sunday Dinner, bag up the rest!!!

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
This was perfect to make once home after camping all weekend. Started looking for a salad recipe to use up the leftover tri-tip that wasn't enough to for meal by itself, Had some corn that I sliced into 1" slices, radishes, marinated asparagus (left from the bloody mary's!) mushrooms. The dressing made it all come together!! the down side was garlic gread from the leftover hot dog buns, but hey! I used just about everything up!!

Slow Cooker Western Omelet

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
after reading this recipe 5 years ago, I suggested to our chamber of commerce director we do this for our food booth at the annual Senior Pro Rodeo only make it as a filling for breakfast burritos. Our booth is there only for the participants. We have to have the coffee hot and donuts fresh at 7:30 in the morning, because they are getting ready to go through their trials for the nights line-up. I found this and tweaked it for 50 servings, substituted cooked, ground sausage for ham, nixed the bell pepper, bought flour tortillas,salsa and extra shredded cheese. We cook this overnight at home, bring the crockpot to the food booth and assemble to make breakfast burritos. We take a tortilla, a decent serving of the omelet, an extra sprinkle of cheese, wrap up individually in foil, and lay them in another crockpot that has a damp towel at the bottom. the damp towel keeps everything steamy hot. as they are bought, they put their own salsa on. We made them in 25 serving batches.(Two smaller crockpots) word spread quickly we had something better than donuts. we have sold out every year after the 1st year (once they found out) we also found the second morning (after the first nights show, afterwards they went into town for the dance and drank alot) we sold out faster on the second morning than the first morning. so we didn't make as much the first morning, and had more for the second morning. it is not labor intensive, and we 3 volunteers get together the night before the rodeo

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
5 STARS for CONCEPT!!!Not sure why I had not thought of this myself!!! Great way to make ahead for a busy day and have a great meal! I read this recipe and wanted to try it, thinking i had all the ingredients, so planned on it. Then found the lasagna noodles I had were No Boil. Wasn't sure how it would work. Used them anyway. I have a HUGE crockpot and there is just 2 of us, so I often make smaller versions of recipes in Pyrex or stoneware casseroles that fit inside my crockpot. This was the case again, so made a smaller version in a smaller casserole and placed inside of crockpot. worrying about the no boil noodles, i poured some water in the crockpot until it was about halfway up the casserole dish, a baine marie so to speak, and set it for 4 hours. PERFECT!!!! I used homemade marinara, and had some turkey italian sausage that needed to be used up. Added a can of mushrooms. YUM!! Will try again because I LOVE using my crockpot!!!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
This was so delicious. I made it for a Cinco de Mayo office potluck. No one had thought about "breakfast" fare, and this was devoured! I used frozen berries from last years harvest, threw in a fresh pear that was on hand and was actually looking for any other fruit I thought might be great. I used homemade cherry preserves for the jam ingredient. I think any jam or jelly would be find- whatever was on hand! Actually, any fruit, frozen or fresh would be good. I added some chopped crystllized ginger too (what's a salsa without some "ZING!"?)

Pecan Pie Bars II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Easy and tasty! I brought it for Thanksgiving. We had several pumpkin pies and apple pies. Having the choice of a "bite" of pecan pie was a great hit after a huge meal, but wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it flavor! I got many raves. Brought it to our office potluck just before Christmas and there was nothing left after 20 minutes!

Bifana

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I had made this a couple times before this review and loved it, as did my husband. But I couldn't remember the name! After receiving an enormous bounty of rhubarb from a co-worker, went looking again for this recipe. The chutney is a great way to use rhubarb and very flavorful. Good with chicken - as I have used it more with chicken than pork!

Eggs Benedict with Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Very nice play on Eggs Benedict. I used dark rye because I had it. Any bread or muffin or biscuit would have been fine. The sauce is a keeper- I liked the original recipe but can't follow a recipe without making it mine. Added a bit more dijon and put the capers in the sauce. Can hardly wait for a brunch to serve company!
