Chicken and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
This yummy soup tasted like it cooked all day. The 35 minute start to finish time makes this soup ideal for busy weeknights, but the flavor is nice enough for company. The smokiness of the bacon sent this over the top. I made two tweaks: I used chopped, pre-cooked chicken thighs, and I used a mixture of cheeses, since I was short on cheddar.

Basil, Roasted Peppers and Monterey Jack Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
This is the third time I have made this, and I'm always surprised at how good it is. It's rich and full of flavor, NOT my mother's cornbread, that's for sure! This recipe makes 2 8" x 8" pans, one for this meal, and one leftover. Thanks!

Praline-Pumpkin Mousse Cornucopias

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
Clear instructions, delicate flavor, perfectly scaled serving for a great finish to a meal. Though clear, there are quite a lot of steps, so this is definitely for those with the patience and the time to devote to a confection. Do not skimp on the caramel topping, because it absolutely makes this dessert. Sorry to come to an empty plate!

Turkey and Bacon Panini with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
Really liked this, except I used only one chipotle pepper in the mayonnaise. We found it spicy enough for us, that way. Other than that, I made the recipe as stated. If you don't have focaccia, I think any sliced, substantial bread would work. I'm happy to find another way to make panini! Thanks!

Sauteed Spinach and Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
DH thought this was the best cooked spinach, ever! It was a colorful side dish, and I liked the crunchiness of the bell pepper. I wanted to try it out before I served it to company, and now I will definitely do that!

Grandma's Chicken Chardon

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
I was sooooo tired of naked chicken! This was a welcome change! I used whole wheat bread to make my crumbs, but otherwise followed the recipe. We did not use the pan sauce, so I saved a few calories there! The mushrooms were delectable, and DH and DS loved the chicken. The side dish was green beans with sliced almonds, a nice crunchy complement to the chicken. Will make this again!

Smothered Green Beans

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
I'm a Southern gal, so the bacon in the green beans wasn't new. However, Mom never fixed them like this! I did drain out most of the rendered fat, and I used the baby whole green beans, but stayed true to the recipe after that. Everyone loved them, and hubby went back for thirds! I will make these again, but will probably reserve them for special occasions. Gotta watch those fat grams....

Spicy Sausage Calzones

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
These were quite good! I used hot turkey Italian sausage, and with all the vegetables, I felt quite virtuous! I put half the filling in the freezer for another night when I need something fast. Thanks, Effasse!

Braised Corned Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2015
Yummers! I prepared this exactly as the submitter instructed, and it turned out beautifully. It was a big temptation to peek inside the foil as it baked all afternoon, but I resisted! I was rewarded with a juicy, tender roast, with some great drippings to add to my roasted potatoes and carrots. I also prepared Baking Nana's braised cabbage, which rounded out my very satisfying salute to St. Pat!

NO YOLKS® Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2015
Yum, yum! Lunch was very good, today! I made the recipe exactly as stated, with only one exception: I doubled it, and I'm so glad I did! My one and only complaint is that lamb is expensive here, so that's another reason I'm glad it turned out well. Don't be afraid to wait until the stew is done to start the No Yolks Dumplings. A few extra minutes won't hurt this at all. The tomatoes did not overwhelm, and I was glad to have green beans in the stew instead of a more starchy vegetable. I had never noticed the dumplings before shopping for this recipe. They are wider than the normal noodle, and though not exactly a dumpling to this southern gal, the noodles had a good flavor. Thanks for the idea!

Citrus Herb Marinated Grilled Vegetables

Reviewed: May 31, 2015
Oh, Semi, this is great! I chose not to use eggplant, but had plenty of other veggies. I used fresh herbs from my garden, and I was very happy with the flavor of the marinade. The herbs, garlic, lemon and olive oil came together in a very nice way. It made a lovely accompaniment to grilled chicken, and I really liked the do-ahead aspect. This is a beautiful, flavorful dish for the family or for company! Thanks for posting!

Simple Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2015
Yum-O! I added more strawberries and about 2 Tbs. honey. This would make a great start for a weekend for two, or a busy morning on the go, or even an afternoon pick-me-up. I used flax meal, which was what I had on hand. So good, and thanks for the idea!

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Great idea for a shortcut! I added a little minced garlic and actually cooked my boneless, skinless chicken in the broth before I added the carrots and noodles. Downside to this was the broth wasn't nice and clear--my fault. Thanks for the idea!

Low Carb Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
My carb-loving DS said he didn't miss the rice! This recipe is packed with protein, and I didn't find the 2 Tbs. of Cajun seasoning too much. I omitted the hot sauce, but I'm tempted to add it next time. I used 2 green peppers and added 3 stalks of celery. I used a 14 oz. package of andouille, and with the other meat, it was enough. There were only 3 other minor additions: fire-roasted tomatoes instead of plain; the addition of about 1 1/2 cups of diced okra; and 1 can of chicken stock instead of 1 cup. I don't think my changes affected the flavor in a major way. For a quick soup, this is a great recipe. Thanks!

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
Three words: Ah May Zing! I don't know why I waited so long to make this--everyone loved it, and it was hard for me to stop eating it! Rich and satisfying, pleasing to the palate, what else can I say? I served it with whole wheat linguini and steamed broccoli. This isn't diet fare, but knowing I was going to prepare this for dinner allowed me to cut back during the day. 11 points+, but I left most of my portion of sauce in the pan. I am a happy woman. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
This recipe is fabulous. I didn't change a thing, and after tasting it, I don't want to change a thing! Perfect as an item on an appetizer buffet, or frankly, I could just call it dinner!
