Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Moist and flavorful chops. Easy, too and that in itself deserves a "5".

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
I had to bake these at a lower oven temperature and so they took considerably longer...didn't crisp up as well at the lower temperature, but next time I'll make them the right way. Line the baking pan with foil for super easy clean-up.

Grandmother's Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
This is so quick to put together and uses only ingredients I'm likely to have on hand. And it tastes good.

Sweet Potato Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
The sweet potato and Italian seasoning were SO good and made my kitchen smell wonderful as the soup was simmering...I used a different selection of veggies: onion, celery, white potato, green beans, shredded cabbage, and tomato. Chicken broth for liquid. I'd make it the same way next time except maybe omit the white potato and just use all sweet potato. I simmered a lot longer (45 mins) but I cut the potatoes bigger than the dice that the recipe instructed. Had a small bowl of this soup but HAD to go back for more.

White Bean Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
The spice combination - especially the cocoa and cinnamon - reminded me of Mexican Mole Sauce. I simmered the beans for the entire 45 minutes.

Stovetop Ham and Penne

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I used a can of diced tomatoes and green chilies so omitted the basil. I also didn't use the cubed cheese - only sour cream. This is a very tasty and quick meal for leftover ham and is a keeper for me.

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I had two very ripe bananas that I didn't want to waste and so only made half the recipe. I added vanilla and about a tablespoon of half and half. With the extra amount of banana, vanilla, and cream, this made 7 nice size muffins. I was really careful and tested these so as not to overbake, and I wouldn't say that they were dry, but the texture is significantly different than banana bread made with oil and/or butter. This would probably not be my first pick for a banana muffin, but I might make them again, especially if I'm looking for a way to use a couple of ripe bananas.

Creamy Chicken Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
I used green onion, no celery, and creamy natural peanut butter. While I'm not sure I'd like to eat a big bowl of this rich soup on its own, it is a really good go-along with a sandwich. Mine was a BLT.

Mongolian Beef II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Really good. I skipped the sherry and only used crushed red pepper - not whole. Also prepared it a bit differently so it wasn't totally "authentic" Mongolian Beef but very tasty anyway. I marinated and browned the beef (I used sliced flat iron steak) but then added about 1/4 cup water, carrots, and green onions and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. I cut the baby carrots in half lengthwise and then again in 3 strips -

Spinach Garlic Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
I was rather pressed for time when I made this, so skipped a couple of the steps and it still turned out to be wonderful! I did not add the carrot (which I will next time) and I chopped the spinach and the onion rather small so that I did not have to blend the soup. I also forgot to add the nutmeg and I like the taste of nutmeg and spinach...

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
This is a perfect recipe for ICF chicken breasts. Next time I'll also double the sauce as it was really delicious and with just the right consistency to make a wonderful glaze on the chicken. So much better than bottled.

Basil Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
An easy way to add a little extra flavor to plain green beans. I used fresh green beans and sauteed in the butter and seasonings until tender and a bit caramelized. A nice blend of flavors.

Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I should not be rating this because I did not make the Alfredo sauce according to the recipe, as I usually do not cook with canned soups and did not have any on hand. I also used a different method of cooking the spaghetti squash... I cut the squash in half and then cleaned out the seeds. I immersed the cut halves in boiling water and boiled for 20 minutes until a knife could be easily inserted in the skin. Then I removed the halves from the water and allowed them to cool enough that I could use a fork and remove the "spaghetti." In no way would I mistake this for real pasta, but it made a tasty side dish with the Alfredo Sauce I prepared using the Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce on AR.

Irish Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I really like the idea of adding the potatoes and onions to Egg Drop Soup - makes it a good deal more filling and nourishing. My soup had plenty of flavor as I started by simmering rotisserie chicken bones & skin to make the broth, then strained the broth and continued with the recipe. Crumbled bacon pieces and fresh parsley boosted the flavor.

Favorite Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
I liked this recipe but I'd suggest a couple of modifications - use only half the mustard, and add a few tablespoons of bbq sauce. I also added some jalapeno sauce along with a small amount of brown sugar to balance the heat.

Lime Chicken and Mushroom Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I really liked this. I did stray from the recipe slightly in that I used rotisserie chicken, and a little chicken broth and butter made more of a sauce to coat the pasta. Garnished with sour cream, this tasted like chicken fajitas with pasta instead of tortillas.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I have used a recipe for Cottage Cheese Pancakes that uses sour cream instead of the vegetable oil and I really prefer the flavor of those pancakes.

Pasta e Olio

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I was pleasantly surprised to find that heating the olive oil with the garlic & pepper gave the pasta sort of a nutty, mellow flavor. I wanted to add a veggie to this dish, so wilted some fresh spinach with the pasta water and then added all into the skillet to saute together for a minute or so in the butter.

Hot Bacon Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I used an equal amount of white sugar and cider vinegar. Cubed and boiled a red potato and mixed that with the bacon dressing. Then I mixed in baby spinach and wilted it with the warm dressing & potatoes. This salad tasted like German Potato Salad but with the added spinach nutrition!

Cyndi's Shrimp Fajitas

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
The corn added a nice sweetness to the other veggies. I added a bit of chipotle powder to the marinade and let it soak for several hours. I only had cooked shrimp in the freezer, so made sure to just heat it up with the veggies at the end. And I'd love to have used fresh cilantro, but dried mixed in with the veggies had to do. Garnished with sour cream instead of cheese.
