Beef Cabbage Hash

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
A great quick dish. I even tried it once with a can of diced tomatoes. I was in the mood for it. It wasn't too Veggie soupish. The kids ate it. So it couldn't have been too bad. :)

Pork Chops to Live For

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
I agree with others that this is high in sodium. Easy solution is to make a basic rue (trans fat free margarine, skim milk, and flour or corn starch) adding fresh mushrooms and onions. My mom makes this very recipe with cheap cuts of blade or chuck beef steak in the oven. She calls it baked steak. It is a great base recipe that you add your own veggies(potatoes, carrots, celery) and spices/herbs (garlic, basil, parsley, oregano, red pepper flakes) to the pot.

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
I have made this a couple of times in the deep fryer. For those that have bigger families, I suggest a bigger deep fryer or 2 of them if you fry on a regular basis. I did 2 batches in the fryer for my family of 5, including 2 guys that are big eaters. I have even tried this substituting steak seasoning because it has black pepper and garlic and other stuff in it. It is spicy and yummy with ketchup or ranch dressing. This batter works great with fish, chicken or butterflied shrimps.

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
When I worked at Olive Garden, we cooked the pasta seperately. Then , add just before serving. Boil the pasta, drain and toss with veggie oil. Toss into soup right before serving. If you plan to store some for later, divide it before adding pasta or simply add a 1/4 cup or so of cooked pasta to each bowl before ladeling soup over it.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I made this recipe almost exactly. I added thawed strawberries , 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil. I blended wet ingredients in a blender on the highest setting. Then, I whisked the dry ingredients in by hand including whole wheat flour. We were trying to find a great way to make healthy peanut butter sandwiches for the kids lunches. We are trying to stay away from the corn syrup in jelly. The waffles were slightly sweet and made great lunchbox additions. They were so good that my picky DH ate them. Definitely a recipe worth repeating.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This is my most requested cookie now. Hubby took it to work and they want more. I have tried different flavors with equal success. I have even tried replacing the oil with applesauce or mashed bananas. I have added nuts or mini chocolate chips with success too. Great base recipe to play with.

Pace® Sirloin Steak Ole

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
I was not feeling well this morning, so I threw this with a drained can of kernel corn into the crockpot for the family. It shredded wonderfully. They ended up spooning this into tortillas. It was awesome with a little sprinkle of cheddar and some lettuce they found in the frig.

Pink Grapefruit Blueberry Sorbet

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
I was given a bottle of grapefruit juice and didn't like it. But I am not one to make waste. I made this in the blender with frozen blueberries and no vodka. I poured it into an ice cream maker and has a wonderful sorbet 20 minutes later.

Death By Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
First, I usually divide this into 8 servings instead of 4. Second, as a gardener, I love this. I add what ever is coming out of the garden or leftovers from last night's salad and it is good everytime. add any herbs you have growing and it works too.

Globetrotting, Vegetarian-Style

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Finally a vegetarian menu that doesn't have a bunch of stuff that I would never buy or have never heard of. This one looks great.

Chef John's Classic Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
Amazing! Kids loved this. Instead of letting it simmer on the stove, I browned it up & placed in the slowcooker and left for a class. When I got home, I stirred in the creme, turned on the water for the noodles & chopped a salad. Dinner was done in 15 minutes and it was great.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
Four ingredients and done. 15 minutes to bake. This is a great pie for moms that need dessert for a kid banquet or something. I keep coming back to this one for emergency pies. I whip it up while making dinner. Put it in the frig when I'm cleaning up and I have it to grab the next night without the stress of finding something to buy on the way home before the event.

White Bean Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
This was so easy to prep. I forgot to buy enough tomatoes for this recipe but found a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes in the pantry. I also used cannelloni beans because that is what I had on hand. I made this ahead of time, refridgerated it and took daughters and girlfriends to the lake. Toasted the bread as they showered. The juice from tomatoes soaked into the bread. Kids ate it up. Even the kid that doesn't eat tomatoes tried it.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I made this recipe exactly except I used the blender and I scaled it down to 20 servings to fit into a jar for the fridge. It has way too much black pepper. I recommend only a fourth called for. I also had to add sugar to cut the tartness. It came out a little runnier than expected and mixed with the salad very easily hence a little goes a long way.

Won Ton Wrapper Appetizers

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I have made these for poker night at our house. I always precook the filling. I have also used this as a base for other fillings including a Mexican filling with Chorizo and cheddar cheese with green onions instead of olives. HAve fun with this and play with it.

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
Made this with 1 TBSP Jack Daniels mustard, 2 TBSP brown spicy mustard and fat free mayo because that is what I had on hand. It was very yummy. The kids loved it. With the fat free mayo, I had to stir it a lot. Next time, I will use the blender or food processor because the fat free mayo gets chunky. Otherwise, this one is a keeper for chicken tenders on family night.
