J.W.'s Pepper and Mozzarella Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
Delicious! I had a bounty of hot banana peppers to use up, so I used those, 1 green pepper and 1/2 each of red and yellow pepper that needed to be used up. I also had an 8 oz. pkg. of sliced fresh mushrooms to use up, so I used those in place of the canned. I sauteed all the veggies in a tiny bit of evoo and a heavy spray of PAM cooking spray, and that worked great. I seasoned the veggies w/ some s&p while they were cooking. I transferred the mixture to my casserole dish and poured the sauce over, then topped w/ some cheese (did not use as much, as we are trying to eat healthier). This was so tasty! I served it alongside steak and roasted red potatoes, but I do agree, this would be awesome over pasta. I was glad to find a new, healthy veggie side...a keeper, for sure~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Jalapeno-Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
We LOVED these! I only had a little over 3/4 pound of ground beef, so I adjusted the ingredients accordingly. I got 3 nice burgers out of it. These had great flavor, and I didn't find them too spicy at all (I was using the end of the garden jalapenos, so they may not have been as hot). I really liked the blue cheese in this...we topped them w/ the swiss and served them on whole wheat sandwich thins along w/ onion, tomato and pickles...Nice! I will def make these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Simple Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2014
This was different, and I thought it was good! I liked the sweetness of the potatoes w/ the flavors of the avocado mixture. I was worried how everything would work together, but it was nice, and a nice change from the usual. Thanks for sharing. :)

'Cherry' Caprese Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2014
Tasty! I do feel it needs a bit of salt and pepper, or a drizzle of evoo or basalmic vinegar to 'brighten' up the flavors a bit. I just added the salt and pepper, and that was fine for us. We liked the addition of the black olives, making it different from the usual caprese salad. I would make this again, b/c we love these types of salads! Thanks for sharing. :)

Western Style Flat Iron Steaks

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2014
FANTASTIC! Made exactly as written except for halving the recipe for a 1# flat iron steak and marinating it all day long. So super moist, tender and just absolutely delicious! The whole family gobbled this up, and hubby's already asking when we can have it again...a definite keeper~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)

Roasted Butternut Squash with Onions, Spinach, and Craisins®

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
Very good! I had some leftover butternut squash, so they weren't exactly the size specified, so they cooked a bit faster, but that was fine. I also added a bit of garlic powder, salt and pepper, and those were great additions. I didn't have any pecans this time, but I can't wait to try this w/ them added. Sweet, tart and savory...a great combination! Thanks for sharing. :)

Avocado Chicken Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
Nice! I really enjoyed this...a nice change from the usual recipes for chicken salad w/ mayo. Some other great additions would be chopped tomatoes and/or jalapeno peppers, which would make it more like a chicken guacamole I guess, lol. This is something I would make again, for sure! Thanks for sharing. :)

Healthier Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
LOVED THESE! Nice and simple, but very flavorful. I've had sweet potato fries before, but I liked these even better. They don't really crisp up like a regular potato would, obviously, but we were able to pick them up easily and eat them. The whole family really, REALLY enjoyed these, and as a plus they are better for ya...a definite keeper~YUM, YUM, YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Three-Ingredient Baked Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
These worked great! I usually bake my chicken in the oven w/ evoo, salt, pepper and garlic powder, but I wanted to try this using the butter. I did add some pepper and garlic powder (I guess that made this 5 ingredient baked chicken, lol), but used the cooking method...it was very good...nice and flavorful! I used the chicken to make chicken salads for dinner. I do like my usual evoo, b/c it's a bit more healthy, but I would totally make this again, as it was very good! Thanks for sharing. :)

Waldorf's Sour Cream Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2014
FANTASTIC! I was leary of using 1/2 cup of margarine in the crust, and it was pretty oily when I was pressing it into the pan, but it came out great. I used a 9-1/2" springform pan, adding about 8 minutes to the cook time to get it set. I only ended up using 1/2 of the sour cream topping, so I know to halve that next time for my size pan. This cheese cake was one of the firsts that I have made that did not crack at all and did not brown on top...it was PERFECT (and cut beautifully)! I did put a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven while this was baking, so I'm sure that helped. Creamy, rich and yummy...everything a good cheesecake should be. I served it with salted caramel drizzle and strawberries, mmmmm.... I will def be making this again and again~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)

Grilled Onions and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014

Master Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2014
WOW...FANTASTIC! This is definitely one of, if not THE BEST pizza dough I have ever made. I did need to add an extra 1/2 cup flour to get it to the right consistency, but that was my only change. I mixed it all up in the kitchen aid, making this even easier to make than it already is. The dough is beautiful to work with. This is my new go-to dough recipe~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)

Pepperoni Eggs

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2014
We LOVED these! I didn't have any egg substitute, so I just used regular whole eggs (4 eggs are equal to 1 cup egg sub.). Made as written otherwise. So simple and they were perfectly done at the 10 minute mark. The whole family gobbled these up...HUGE hit and a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Kiki's Spiced Habanero Peach Jam

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2014
Delicious! As another reviewer mentioned, mine also did not set up and is more of a 'syrup'. I'll still use it because the flavor is wonderful, but I'm suspecting that it is the cooking method (adding the pectin before the sugar), that is the reason why this did not set up properly. I was tempted to do it the way that it says on the pectin package, but I wanted to stay true to the recipe. I'm still giving this 4 stars, b/c, like I said, it is delicious and had a really nice, flavor with a nice, spicy kick, which we enjoyed. If I try this again, I will follow the cooking method on the pectin package. Thanks for sharing. :)

Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
Made this for Recipe Group...BIG HIT! I used Italian bread, so it was more like a 'garlic bread' type thing to go w/ our pasta dinner. I used a mix of yellow and cherry tomatoes from the garden. Great flavor and it was enjoyed by all...a keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Sassy Freezer Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
Made this for Recipe Group...If you like slaw in any form, you're gonna LOVE this! I like that this is made and ready to go in the freezer for a quick side. I halved the recipe and used one 16oz. bag of coleslaw mix (YES, I'm lazy, lol), and that worked perfectly. The dressing is SOOOOO GOOD! Thanks, sass, this is a keeper~YUM! :)

Roquefort Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2014
Very good! I did not find this too thick at all, in fact, mine was a bit on the thin side, not sure why, but it was still good. Easy and flavorful...a keeper! Thanks for sharing. :)

Foolproof Flat Iron Steaks

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2014
Delicious! I marinated mine all day, and used a bit of Italian seasoning in place of the thyme b/c I did not have any on hand. I sliced this for on top of our steak salads, and that was wonderful. Moist and tender with a great flavor...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Roasted Marshmallow Peaches

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2014
This was very good! I used some VERY ripe, fresh peaches that I peeled pitted and sliced, and that worked out great. I baked mine for about 20 mins. or so, and that was plenty, so keep an eye out. The combo of the peaches and toasted marshmallows work really, really well together. The kids tore this up! This was great for an easy dessert or even just when you want something sweet that's quick and more on the healthy side. I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing. :)

Pub Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2014
These were ok, but I have to agree with others that said that these lacked flavor. For all the prominent components in the dish, it still felt that something was missing. The family ate them, but I most likely will not be making these again, tho I was glad to try something new. Thanks for sharing. :)
